Even if the term RINO hadn't already been widely in use for years, would it really be newsworthy? No. Therefore I have to assume your actual motive for posting the article was to sneak in a dig at republicans with doom and gloom predictions of a party collapse, continuing your long history of partisan flamebaiting.

So knock it off.

Is it tropes you hate?


Stop being a jackass and just post those articles on a blog like everyone else. I come to Evageeks to get away from politics.

I sleepwalk really badly. I've been known to make breakfast at 2:00 AM...sawing logs. I've not texted anyone, before, but I have woken up to find my face in a plate of stew.

On that topic, Florida recently passed the texting and driving law.

It is never over... not as long as those lame ducks and lamer asshat baby boomers are still in positions of power, we normal citizens will not know peace of mind.

Cheaper cost of living is nice, but I can't stand the climate or the people down here, so that's basically negated from my perspective.

Magnitude 7.3 earthquake strikes off Fukushima region of Japan,

Japanese authorities warned of an imminent tsunami just over three feet high for the Fukushima region after a major earthquake off the country's coast.

The earthquake measured 7.6 on the Richter scale, by some accounts.

The Fukushima region is home to the nuclear reactor devastated in 2011's earthquake.

This happened just as most showings for the third Madoka movie started.
