... that music cues and fancy editing can be applied to just about any source material to make it look like an exciting Hollywood blockbuster. Your brain wants to believe there's some narrative behind it, so it connects the dots.
It always cracks me up that in a country which was taken at gunpoint from its original inhabitants (and then again from the Spanish) people get all moral about illegal immigration. This was a nation of fence-hoppers from the get-go. The new invasion isn't by military force or colonial occupation, it's by sheer force of numbers--most of whom are unarmed, poverty-stricken and desperate. You can put up a fence 100 miles tall and they will still get in. Borders are arbitrary. Human needs are not.
Maybe it's like all those penis size polls where, curiously, most men have 9-inchers or bigger.
The sides were kinda, well, underwhelming. Cajun corn was not so cajuny. Potato salad was better, but not remarkable. They were out of okra, so no opinion on that. The fried stuff was delicious, though. Fried oysters in the North Valley! Kudos for that.
You can tell an eccentric soul runs the joint, not just because of the Jesus propaganda, but because every inkjet-printed sign taped up repeats the key phrase three times:
You get the idea.
They are worse than roaches with the trail of turds they leave wherever they go. I wish my cat would leave off killing the songbirds and get back to the mice.
And by far the ugliest: Something About Amelia, which presents Ted as a dad who sexually abuses his daughter. Hijinks do not ensue!
It has the coolest old-school signage. Here's a picture. That's pre-1937 Route 66, baby.
They put a picture of Slime in the 80s toy article, but never mention it in the text. Maybe that's cuz it was actually introduced in the 1970s, although it hung around well into the 80s--until there were huge oozing bargain bin tables of Slime and Slime knock-offs going 10 for a buck in every Kmart in the nation.
This site has a nice round-up of cool old toys, not relegated to the 80s. Including good old Jarts, the lethal lawn dart game that was actually a lot of fun.
now you're officially old.
Why is CA in such a budget crisis? ... Maybe it's because they pay for education, health-care and other social services for illegals at a rate of 10x other states. ... The Warden of the LA Municipal jail was interviewed and said that over 50% of their inmates are illegal and that doesn't include immigration infractions ...
Boy, I'd like to see some references to support these stats. I'm very suspicious of nice round numbers like 10 and 50.
Why can't we treat our neighbor's kids better than an illegal?
So by paying "illegal" roofers $10 an hour they are being treated better than "our neighbor's kids" because when *they* become roofers they get, what, $9 an hour? Or what the hell are you trying to say?
Also, why don't we call all those crooked white collar execs at Enron and MCI Worldcom and Bear Stearns "illegals"? Why do the brown people get all the fun?
