Does this have rino written all over it, or not? :glare:




No question. Like Romney, he is a good man, but we need a fighter and good conservative.

That's the thing, the Right is tied by law and procedure, while the Marxist abuses power with an EO.
For Congress to do otherwise, would be to throw out our Republican govt and the rule of law..

I agree, we need to be patient.

The Senate democrats are on the defensive. It is clear from DHS situation. That being said McConnell needs to step up the pressure. It is obvious so far that the conservatives have gotten Boehner's attention in the House as he held the line on the DHS funding. I liked how he said the House had done its job and it was up to the Senate to pass a bill.

Good God! the new congress has only been office 8 weeks. :lol: :lol: sometimes it takes months and years to move anything. Give it time! So far I see them attempting to fulfill our agenda but everything will be a battle with this administration and the radical left that is still stopping everything. So far this has been a very active congress. It is the senate screwing things up. Patience is very important. Everything will be a fight. Some things will be lost but expect we will see some gains or gridlock will continue!!

He's great.  I won't talk about him in past tense.

I saw him on a lecture-tour in the late 70's, speaking mostly about science-fiction and Gene Roddenberry making Star Trek happen.  There was an eardrum-shattering applause when he performed the Vulcan hand-greeting, which he spent about 15-minutes explaining.  In a conference with Roddenberry about Spock, Nimoy was urged to unearth unique personal gestures he may've used as a kid.  Spock's signature raised-eyebrow was the only thing Nimoy could think of.  Roddenberry was happy with it.  Then, as a throwaway, Nimoy held up his hand...  " By the way, I can do this too... "  separating his third-and-forth fingers, keeping the fifth finger perfectly married to the forth amazingly easily.  Roddenberry said:  " Not bad.  We'll probably have Spock use it from time-to-time. "  -Nimoy pretended to read from data which said that only 1-in-5 people can perform the Vulcan gesture, finishing by having the crowd raise their hands and try doing it.  I still can't do it.

Nimoy was an icon of the sexual revolution, drawing adult females into the science-fiction/pop culture realm in substantial numbers.  Within weeks, Spock's personna was driving Star Trek's plots.  And continued to thrust its popularity right through the write-in anti-NBC cancellation fiasco's to the first Star Trek 'CONS' (conventions) in the 80's.

He's come a long way since Zombies Of The Stratosphere, which is my personal Nimoy cult-fave.  My favorite big-screen Nimoy performance is Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, which he should've won an Oscar for.

R.I.P., LSN.  The Beginning Frontier...   
Fascinating! I guess it could be true, what he said about 1 in 5 being able to do that. I'm fifth in a family of five and was the only one that could do the Vulcan greeting, as the same in my group of friends, only one other had the same dexterity.

Impressive Kathy and welcome aboard our forum!
She's been a member a year now. :biggrin:
Good poster, just doesn't have a lot to say. I find the engineer part fascinating, in that it was always a dream of mine to ride, since I literally spent the first quarter of my life next to tracks, and remember the disappointment in hearing they were shutting down my line and removing the tracks and overpasses in the early to mid 60s. 

I was the only one that longed for the sound of iron and steel fighting for equilibrium, while everyone else was happy the smoke and noise of the last hundred years was coming to an end.
I still have the date nails from the ties in the tracks dating back to the late 19th century.

Kind of silly when I think about it, but my dad and I used to walk the rails for miles, his father was an engineer as dad too worked on the rail, maybe it runs in the blood... :blink:

When did you first claim amnesty would be passed? 1975?
That was the year that Mexican kid stole his tricycle and kissed the girl he had a crush on, and it's been war on illegals ever since.
It mattered not that the Mexican kids family had lived in Ca since before it became a state.

And i see no amendments added by  Boehner, and there never will be. Reps have made a mess of what should have been a simple issue. The money men want amnesty so we have amnesty.

I was wrong on Rubio's vote he did end up supporting the senate bill that never passed the house. That is another reason he will never make it through the primary for the presidency. :popcorn: :popcorn:

Supporting? He was the liying mouthpiece for  Schumer on conservative talk radio.
