Which is why it was a BUDWEISER commercial, not an InBev commercial. This was a commercial for a brand, and to retain people already drinking that brand.

  More states, Native American tribes mimic Colorado pot laws
Published on Jan 3, 2015 http://youtu.be/aLvGzEy83EE
This past November, Oregon and Alaska voted to legalize the possession and sale of recreational marijuana, and the Department of Justice last month said it would allow Native American tribes to make their own decisions on the sale of pot. Each follows Colorado's footsteps in the new process of marijuana legalization. NewsHour's Rick Karr reports.

Your 2nd Amendment rights cannot be infringed, but the High Courts regard reasonable regulations as not infringing on rights. No rights are absolute. You have 1st A rights regarding the freedom of speech, but there are plenty of regulations on speech (slander, sedition, etc.). You also have 4th A rights against unreasonable searches and seizures, but there are lots of restrictions and regulations on that that the High Courts deem reasonable.

It was only recently where the 2nd Amendment has been incorporated to the states. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), the Court clarified its earlier decisions that limited the amendment's impact to a restriction on the federal government, expressly holding that the Fourteenth Amendment applies the Second Amendment to state and local governments to the same extent that the Second Amendment applies to the federal government. Before that, the 2nd A, along with a few other freedoms (right to grand jury, right to a jury trial in civil lawsuits, etc.) in the first 8 amendments were selectively not incorporated (applied) to the states.

Now plenty of states make laws restricting the 2nd Amendment (look at California, New York, etc.), but when the laws become too onerous, the Justices on the High Courts may strike them as unreasonable infringements. Chicago resident Otis McDonald wanted to legally own a pistol to protect his home and the US Supreme Court regarded Chicago's blanket handgun ban as an infringement.

The way I'm reading it, only local and state cops can't take your guns. This leaves the door wide open to the ATF and Marshalls. A much better question is who is gonna take the risk of selling suppressors down here first. You have to consider the Texas Penal Code mirrors and refers to the NFA.

So before I enlisted, I had bought three guns over a few years, the last one being something suited for conceal carry, because I was gearing up to get my permit. Then I went to Recruit Training, no way to have privately owned guns with me etcetera. When I was discharged last year, I just did not have the same interest in guns as in years before. I still like my guns, but I never even shoot them now since I would rather spend the money on things other than ammunition.

Anyway, I live in Louisiana, so if I did get a permit now, hypothetically I would most likely have to use it in New Orleans, and statistically speaking, should such a situation ever occur, I might have to shoot a man who just so happens to be of African descent. That could be... problematic for me following recent media exploits. See where I am going with this?

I believe in the Second Amendment and all, just like everyone here, but I do not want to run the risk of being turned into the gun-toting boogieman the leftist media always seems to be searching for, and that seems very likely in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. Should that ever occur, I am sure they would have no problem labeling me as some anti-social ex-military Oswald stereotype racist(even though my favorite art teacher and a lot of childhood friends were black). I would rather just die. I have no children or anything.

What is the point of having a permit if I have to worry about what color a potential attacker is? Is my concern legitimate, or is it just stupid, unwarranted paranoia deserving of mocking redicule?

If you think you're doing a restaurant any favors by ordering dessert, you might want to think again.

Dessert can be delicious. And it can be profitable, too. But generally speaking, when diners extend their meal with slices of chocolate cake, cups of ice cream, and servings of crème brûlée, it can come at restaurants' expense.

"It's hard to make money on desserts in the restaurant business today," said Tyler Cowen, an economics professor at George Mason University who has written extensively about the economics of eating out. "I don't think many [restaurants] benefit when people order them anymore."

There are many problems with dessert, but it all starts with one pretty simple truth: The restaurant industry is a place of razor thin margins, and dessert tends to offer one of the thinnest.

Food in general is tough to make money on. Restaurants have long relied on the mark-up they tack onto drinks, not grub, to boost profits. As food costs soar, that reality has only become more true, because there's a limit to how much people are willing to pay for different parts of their meal. For many mid-scale restaurants, that limit is $30 for entrees, no matter the ingredients, Todd Kliman noted recently in the Washingtonian. For desserts the ceiling is much lower, and much less flexible, says Cowen.

"Dessert needs good ingredients to taste good, but you can't psychologically convince people to pay even $20 for dessert," Cowen said. "You can't really go cheap on it, but you really can't charge extra either."

Forbes, for that very reason, noted in 2011 that dessert is often a great deal — for diners.

But it's also made serving it a growing pain for many restaurants. The cost of serving a house-prepared line of desserts includes employing a pastry chef and dedicated space in the kitchen to the craft. Some restaurants, instead of using pastry chefs, have opted to serve simpler desserts made by line cooks, while others "have given up entirely" and outsourced their sweets, according to Kliman.

>Restaurants are a racket.
Sure, if you're lucky.
But that depends on far too many variables for me to consider that even generally true, including franchises to a certain degree. The failure rate for small businesses is pretty high to begin with, and while in the case of restaurants it's not some silliness like 9 out of 10 in the first year, the amount of issues that go into owning and operating one is not proportionate to the amount of debt and profit involved. A career in foodservice and/or hospitality earning paychecks from somebody else is much more viable.

Restaurants really are terrible for profits. While the mark up is high, that markup has to cover everything and there's a laundry list of costs for a restaurants, utilities, permits, franchise fees, insurance, rent, food, staff, taxes, condiments, napkins, etc.

With the poor margins on restaurants and the recent economic struggles, I'm amazed to see all the chain restaurants still popping up.

I guess this explains why I often have to ask for desert after I've gotten my check.

My favorite dessert as of late. Bread pudding.

  If you could change one thing in the Constitution what would you change?

January 1, 2015 By Matthew Burke

Leading conservative radio talk show host and best-selling author Mark Levin, spoke at the American Legislative Exchange Council meeting in Washington, DC, in December, making the case that now is the time for an Article V Convention of the States in order to put a halt to federal government overreach.

“This movement is nothing less than to restore the Republic,” began Mark Levin, referring to what is known as the Article V Convention movement, after thanking Mark Meckler, who he credited with being instrumental in spearheading the grassroots movement to restore the constitutional balance between the federal government and the states which created it.

“Now, we can beat our chests about election victories all we want,” Levin continued. “And we can go on-and-on and complain about federal mandates and the EPA and all the rest. Now what the hell are we going to do about it,” he asked the audience of 1,200.

Levin contended that Obama and the Democrats don’t believe in America’s founding principles.

“If you believe in America’s founding principles, what are you trying to fundamentally transform?” he asked, referring to Obama’s 2008 campaign rhetoric about “fundamentally transforming America.”

“And unfortunately the Republican Congress doesn’t believe in defending them [America's founding principles],” Levin asserted. “Republicans are more fearful of a temporary government shutdown, where 17% of the government is closed and Americans are utterly unaffected by it, than the evisceration of the Constitution, the separation of powers, Article I — their own power — the power of the purse, and decisions about naturalization,” Levin argued.

...Repealing the 17th Amendment would be far worse than merely undemocratic. In fact, democracy wasn’t the main motivation behind the amendment at all; corruption was. If you think campaign finance is bad now, image how much easier it is to buy an election when you only have to reach a handful of state legislators instead of an entire state’s electorate. Lewis Gould, a history professor emeritus at the University of Texas at Austin who wrote a book about the Senate in the 20th century, told Salon that by the turn of the century, there was a “stench in the nostrils” of many Americans about how senators were elected. “It was much easier to manipulate and much cheaper — the cost per vote was much smaller,” he explained.

The Senate developed such a bad reputation that a popular fable had it that President Grover Cleveland’s wife woke him up in the middle of the night to alert him that there were “robbers in the house.” To that, a sleepy Cleveland replied, “I think you are mistaken. There are no robbers in the House, but there are plenty in the Senate.” Sen. William Frye from Maine wrote to a friend in 1889, “You do not believe that a man should buy a United States Senatorship, nor do I, yet there are several in our distinguished body who hold their seats by purchase.”

The Senate’s official historical office notes:

Intimidation and bribery marked some of the states’ selection of senators. Nine bribery cases were brought before the Senate between 1866 and 1906. In addition, forty-five deadlocks occurred in twenty states between 1891 and 1905, resulting in numerous delays in seating senators. In 1899, problems in electing a senator in Delaware were so acute that the state legislature did not send a senator to Washington for four years.

Gould said the corruption sometimes took on a “comic opera” tone. “For every Lincoln-Douglass debate, you get some more sordid characters where there was talk about legislators being bribed, or being found with women, or being drunk and voting when they’re hung over, all sorts of things.” “There was one case in New York where they were having a Senate election in ‘81 and group of legislators were sent to the wrong room and they looked over the transom and saw one of the candidates with what was called an ‘unspeakable woman’ — that the end of his hopes for being reelected to the Senate,” Gould added. http://www.salon.com/2012/08/16/repeal_the_17th_amendment/

So the gist of the argument supporting the repeal of the 17th Amendment is that giving the people of the state the right to directly vote for their senators for their representation in the US Senate took away the representation of the state government in Congress. Before, the state legislatures had their appointed boys in the US Senate representing the interests of the power elites in the state government. After the 17th was passed, the senators were more beholding to the people who elected them. This is only a problem if you are worried about the top government officials within the states not getting enough influence in the federal government. So the people pushing for repeal of the 17th Amendment are a kind of "Power to the People in Power" party.

But I say to hell with that and any attempt to concentrate influence and representation into the hands of a smaller elite. I swear contempt and defiance to anyone trying to take my voting rights away!

As bad as Congress is now, when it comes to knuckling under to special interests, the legislatures at the end of the 19th century were worse. They were owned by the railroads, or the whiskey trust, or the streetcar and gas magnates, or the oil or steel industries. They were hick farmers and working stiffs, sent by state or city machines, to Springfield or Trenton where, it was universally understood, they would supplement their meager salaries by having corporations grease their palms.

You think these boyos were immune to partisanship? In those days, party discipline was imposed and enforced by both Republican and Democratic bosses with the kind of ruthless efficiency that Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich could only dream of.

...There is a reason our great-grandfathers undertook the difficult and arduous task of amending the Constitution to have senators elected by the people. They had a saying back then, that has stuck around--for good reason--for more than a hundred years since a judge coined it in a New York court case: "No man's life, liberty, or property are safe when the legislature is in session." http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/john-farrell/2010/06/01/tea-party-goes-overboard-by-suggesting-to-repeal-17th-amendment

>We have that already.

Yes, when the legislature has opposing parties controlling each part, then we have an adversarial relationship in the federal government. But we still have no adversarial relationship between the states and the feds, which was the entire purpose of having a senate. Two things Republicans and Democrats in the federal government agree on is that it's best that they have all the power, and in their best interest to dump tax burdens on states. Why shouldn't states get a say in that?

You've said a few times you don't understand how election by a legislature would make things any more adversarial. I ask that you look at what's about to happen in our government. Republicans are going to control the entire legislature, yet will be impotent to impede the executive branch because they can't really do anything without pissing off the people and being ousted from power. So the president will do as he pleases with impunity. If the senate were still elected by the legislature, this wouldn't be a problem.

>Congressmen, when actually doing their job writing laws, attach riders for pork projects to direct federal money back to their own states.

It's not the fed's place to sprinkle pork projects to individual districts. That this is now their "job" just shows me that the feds have far too much tax money. Tax funding for an area should primarily come from the city, then the county, and then the state. Federal money should only come if there is some national interest, like a district court.

OAKLAND (KPIX 5) – After the recent Black Lives Matter protests, there is a new brownie troop in Oakland. Instead of selling cookies, they are spreading a message.

On a Saturday afternoon in Oakland, a handful of 8 to 10 year old girls are gathered, in brown uniforms, giggling and eating cupcakes. They look like Girl Scouts, but it’s not just fun and games.

And it’s not just fun and games. “White policeman are killing black young folks such as women, men and children,” one of the girls said.

Another girl said, “Mike Brown. He was shot because he didn’t do nothing. Only the police officer shot him because of his skin color.”

These girls are called the “Radical Brownies.” And instead of learning sewing, they’re learning social justice.

Even their uniforms have a message.

I'd be so much more sympathetic for these black lives matter morons if first they just focused on lives mattering because shockingly whities and Mexicun'ts get kilt by cops too and probably an asian person aswell somewhere and second if they wouldn't defend every asshole.

Cops have killed people like Kelly Thomas, James Boyd, and Kristiana Coignard. All were white and all had mental problems. Thomas was beat to death by 3 cops for apparently vandalizing cars in a schizo outburst. James Boyd was hit with a flashbang, shot by rifles, attacked by a pig dog, and then hit with bean bag rounds because he was camping and had super deadly fucking knives. Coignard was a 17 year old girl shot in a police station because she was brandishing an invisible weapon.

Where is the campaign that white lives matter or mentally ill lives matter? Where is the Obama on tv saying he could have been Thomas or Boyd or had a daughter like Coignard? Where is Jesse Jackson or that race card whore bitching on national tv? Why hasn't Eric Holder in between selling guns to Mexican cartels opened a hate crime investigation?

On the second point, Tray-tray there is alot of unknown factors involved. Zim-zam seems like a trouble magnet anyway and was looking for trouble. There is enough ambiguous evidence to say Tray-tray didn do nuffin maybe.

That fat dude in Jew York was choked out for at most selling loose cigarettes. He didn do nuffin except try to make some caps on some retardedly expensive deathsticks and make poor eating choices.

Mike Brown was a thug that has just robbed a store and evidence shows he was attacking a cop. He did do sumfin.

So if you wanna stop SJW's from getting to the kids you've gotta give them something else to do, and it'll work especially if there's significant financial reward at the end for winners.

Back in the day the rich kids had parents who paid out thousands for high-powered genetically-perfect steers. Those Market Steers would be washed and groomed daily, kept on fresh shavings and treated like pretty pink princesses. The payoff is making the auction sale at the county or the major statewide shows, like Houston and San Antonio. Of course I didn't have money to piss away on gambles like that and had plenty to do besides shampoo a cow. My bag was Commercial Steers. None of the glitz, glamor or prestige, but a real business enterprise. Commercial steers are all about efficient and quick gain on inexpensive feed just like a real feedlot, in miniature. There's also an accounting recordbook requirement and an interview with industry professional and insiders. The payout for winning was smaller but guaranteed. Everybody gets a cash prize but the top 3 get really significant prizes, and you get to keep your animals to sell or eat yourself. I cashed out $2k in prize money when I won. Recent winners have gotten $6k. As the sponsors piled on it's really taking off and becoming a force.

Yep, everything was made and animals raised by kids with moderate and accepted levels of parental involvement of course. Surprisingly the top 3 in the junior division (under 14) for Functional Metalwork were all blades. Senior (high school) division had a bunch of horse shoe hangars, the chainmail and some tools. Most kids that fit that division, though, move to Farm Shop.

I mean, this one county show is such a big deal that most schools build their calendars around it and shut down. These shows are *everywhere* and need support, if not financial, just go to them and nod approvingly at the kids. It's almost always free to get in and worth your time.

While speaking at an overwhelmingly wealthy, white audience at the Aspen Institute, former New York City mayor and leading gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg expressed his desire to see young minorities stripped of their gun rights. The Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Everytown USA funder reportedly believes male minorities between the ages of 15 and 25 are responsible for most murders. That’s why, he argued, cities need to take guns away from that group.

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” the Aspen Times reported Bloomberg said to the audience. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything.”

“It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

There’s no report on how, exactly, Bloomberg wants to see young minority men disarmed.

Someone had a text link way back the last time this topic was brought up where people got fuxx0r by Cali law for having guns during the riots.

Bottles of Walmart-brand echinacea, an herb said to ward off colds, were found to contain no echinacea at all. GNC-brand bottles of St. John's wort, touted as a cure for depression, held rice, garlic and a tropical houseplant, but not a trace of the herb.

In fact, DNA testing on hundreds of bottles of store-brand herbal supplements sold as treatments for everything from memory loss to prostate trouble found that four out of five contained none of the herbs on the label. Instead, they were packed with cheap fillers such as wheat, rice, beans or houseplants.

Based on the testing commissioned by his office, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Tuesday he has sent letters to the four major store chains involved — GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreens — demanding that they immediately stop selling adulterated or mislabeled dietary supplements.

Schneiderman said the supplements pose serious risks. People who have allergies or are taking certain medications can suffer dangerous reactions from herbal concoctions that contain substances not listed on the label, he said.

"This investigation makes one thing abundantly clear: The old adage 'buyer beware' may be especially true for consumers of herbal supplements," the attorney general said.

The herbal supplement industry criticized the method used to analyze the samples and raised questions about the reliability of the findings.

Walmart's vice president of Health & Wellness, Carmen Bauza, said testing by Walmart suppliers hasn't revealed any issues with the relevant products, but the company will comply with the attorney general's request to stop selling them in New York.

"We take this matter very seriously and will be conducting side-by-side analysis because we are 100 percent committed to providing our customers safe products," Bauza said.

Not all supplements are snake-oil, just most of them.

For instance Cascara Sagrada has been used as a laxative for a very long time. But when the FDA implemented more stringent qualifications for what qualifies as medicine it just wasn't practical to do the expensive testing to get it qualified as such. So it was bumped down to a simple supplement. Still works, so long as it actually is what they say it is.

Granted these companies are selling bullshit but the FDA has pulled some shit themselves. I was upset when they banned ephedrine.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephedrine
>On April 14, 2005, the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah ruled the FDA did not have proper evidence that low dosages of ephedrine alkaloids are actually unsafe

It actually worked really well as a stimulant and all the deaths blamed on it had murky evidence. The straw that broke the camels back was some fat ass football offensive lineman that died in a workout in high heat conditions. Guess they can't ban heat.

Is there a way I can watch the Super Bowl on the internets? I kind of don't really have television anymore. I stream anything I want to watch in this day and age.

And while we're on the subject: Who are you rooting for? Or why do you hate it?

It's there but it's noisy on the band at the moment. Try using USB. It doesn't really show up in the waterfall though.
