  1. OK DirecTV, You’re Outta Here!

    I have used Playstation Vue, and Hulu on my Roku, for a while now, it works great. Also sign up for the ESPN 3 app and sometimes you can get different MWC games there too.
  2. Sports Camps

    I need to send my daughter to gymnastics camp, and my son to a good football camp this summer. I was thinking Penn State for my son, and Michigan State for my daughter. Anybody have any good recommendations?
  3. There are two types of people in this world that I cannot stand. Those who are intolerant of other peoples cultures and the Dutch.

  5. Yep, that tax cut sure was for the middle class....

    I think those layoffs had to do more with the cable TV dying a slow miserable death , rather than evil rich businessmen trying to save a a few bucks.
  6. Yep, that tax cut sure was for the middle class....

    It makes no difference if the tax savings are paid out as dividends , or reinvested back into the business. Both activities are good for the economy. If they are paid out in dividends Uncle Sam gets a cut as well.
  7. Yep, that tax cut sure was for the middle class....

    this has nothing to do with the tax cuts. Companies make decisions like this all the time and allocate resources where they think they will be used most effectively.
  8. UCF National Champions -

    Apparently they don't have to play the game on Monday. The championship has already been decided. They have the shirts and the banner to prove it. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21951014/ucf-knights-raise-national-championship-banner
  9. Sessions clears the path for the Feds to go after weed

    It is not that hard. Marijuana is not against the constitution so you don't have to overcome the steep hurdles of a constitutional amendment. Convince Congress to pass a law, and the president to sign it. I have no problem with recreational marijuana, although I would never use it. I do have a problem with not enforcing the rule of law.

    I am assuming you meant enforce federal law,
  11. Sessions clears the path for the Feds to go after weed

    So the state of Idaho could pass a law that all Idahoans are exempt from paying federal income taxes, or that we don;t have to follow the Civil Rights act??? By your own argument states should have the right to do this

    You really have no idea what you are talking about. The interstate commerce clause allows the federal government to regulate commerce between states. You see before the constitution we had the articles of Confederation which did not let the federal government regulate interstate commerce. We had states printing their own currencies, making treaties with other states etc. The commerce clause was put into the constitution to make interstate commerce uniform between all of the states to encourage commerce. The commerce clause is really irrelevant to the Marijuana debate The constitution was NOT designed to be flexible to the times. The people who wrote the constitution made it very difficult to amend it on purpose.
  13. Sessions clears the path for the Feds to go after weed

    Wrong again. The 10th amendment states that all powers not expressly written into the constitution belong to the states. It has been long established that the federal government is within its power to regulate narcotics. The welfare clause of the constitution gives the power of the federal government to regulate narcotics.
  14. Sessions clears the path for the Feds to go after weed

    Because the Obama administration chose to direct the Justice department to not enforce federal law regarding state's marijuana laws, which is also unconstitutional. The Justice department can change their mind at any time.
  15. Sessions clears the path for the Feds to go after weed

    You have no idea what you are talking about. We do have a system of checks and balances. However the federal law supersedes state law, it says so right in the constitution. It is called the Supremacy clause, and has nothing to do with settling disputes. You can have all the democratic processes you want in your state until the cows come home, if they are in violation of federal law they should be disregarded. This is why states don't print their own currency, have the power to declare war on another state, can't have a minimum wage below the federal level, ban paying federal income taxes, can't discriminate against minorities, the list could go on forever.
