Games Workshop looks into Copyright Infringement by Mike Huckabee

Huckabee, Space Marines, and Kids

Two of the videos have a child wearing a red space marine helmet, one of the memorable factions in the Warhammer 40,000 table top board game. Beginning in 1987, the game has remained immensely popular, making appearances in novels and popular video games like the PC title Dawn of War II. When contacted on the issue, Andrew Hall of Games Workshop said: “I have forwarded this on to our legal department.”

re: #18 Kid A

More "ammo" for the deniers. Scientist says AGW is all made up.

Your text to link...

That article is utter garbage and the person who wrote it is a lying fraud:

Who is 'Rocket Scientist' David Evans?

According to his bio, Evans claims to be a 'Rocket Scientist' and one article claims that he is a 'Top Rocket Scientist.' While Evans background does show that he has a PhD in electrical engineering, there is no evidence that he was ever employed as a rocket scientist.

In addition to not being a rocket scientist, he's also not a climate scientist:

According to his own resume, Evans has not published a single peer-reviewed research paper on the subject of climate change. Evans published only a single paper in 1987 in his career and it is unrelated to climate change.

He has done work for professional deniers, though:

Evans has published an article for the Alabama-based Ludwig von Mises Institute, a right-wing free-market think tank. Evans also published a "background briefing" (pdf) document for the Australian chapter of the Lavoisier Group, a global warming "skeptic" organization with close ties to the mining industry.

Yep, it's always somebody else who's wasting all America's money and driving us deeper into debt. Everything they support, by contrast, is just them seeing their "tax dollars at work." The only time they give a damn about any government spending is when it being brought to a stop would hurt their pocketbook. Case in point, the "fiscal responsibility" crowd getting into a tiff at the suggestion that Medicare may go the way of the dodo, with Social Security right along after it.

Boehner: Government can't fix the housing crisis

House Speaker John Boehner is "skeptical" there is "anything the government can do" to alleviate America's housing crisis - arguing that, ultimately, "you're not gonna have more buyers until the economy improves."
....
"I'm even more skeptical today that there's anything the government can do to resolve these problems."

If there were an easy answer to the crisis, he said, "then it'd have been passed and Congress would have acted, and the president would have signed it. But when you look at how big the problem is, it's pretty clear to me that the sooner the market works through on this process, the sooner we deal with the problem mortgages and get those homes back on the market and sold."

How could we affect it? Because there are six billion of us and a gigantic industrial machine. It would be bizarre if we weren't affecting the climate!

I don't recall using that term growing up in the 50's and 60's, nor during the 70's, 80's or 90's.
Was this something that was pushed out after 9/11?
It does not sound like a term that would be something we should be using when referring to our men and women in the armed services.

Nope. We're not talking about loans to minorities and those who are systematically overlooked. This isn't related to the bank-location push. The loans made by the banks that sunk us were not related to the government push for loans for overlooked groups; those actually had a lower default rate.

The problems were manifold, but the main one with the mortages themselves were the banks systematically betting that equity would rise to the extent that it didn't matter if they made loans to people who couldn't really afford the houses. It wasn't in any way limited to one corner of the market or the other.

We got into a culture where somehow people believed that housing prices would do nothing but increase forever, everywhere. People looked on houses as an investment, not a home.

Many of the problems in this country are of a similar, magical thinking nature.

re: #68 Kid A

It's really not the same thing at all. The Fannie and Freddie loans had a lower default rate than the market, since the rules were actually stricter.

The most recent push is for banks to not 'redline', in other words, for them not to systematically deny loans to people living in a certain area.

[Link: www.businessweek.com...]

There are poor people who are perfectly good loan risks, and excluding them is done mainly because they don't make the banks as much money.

They're not being told they have to give out huge loans to people who can't afford them, but they have to give some loans to people in disadvantaged areas, and not purposefully exclude them.

I'd argue it's because, by this point, all their "solutions" have been tried and failed spectacularly. The Ryan Plan is basically everything they've tried over the past 4 decades, crammed into one unsavory package and sold as a "cure-all."

That's part of it there's also things like Romney's Healthcare plan that became the model for national healthcare reform. Once Obama adopted it conservatives opposed it. Also TARP was a necessary program started under Bush to save the economy from certain ruin. Only When Obama continued to idea did Republicans oppose it.

That's primarily aimed at the party base, probably out of fear this time around that they may all decide to go third party again, ala '92 & '96. Perhaps they're especially fearful that Ron Paul may decide to pull a Ross Perot and run against his party, splitting the Tea Party vote.

I absolutely refuse to watch Priest, because it claims to be "based upon" a book series, when in reality they basically excised the series title and some characters names, slapped them onto a generic action horror film and threw it out the door. It's a might like the Resident Evil films, which were proposed at one time as direct adaptations of the games, but have since become little more than generic action horror films with "Resident Evil" slapped upon them.

I love the idea of seeing movies on the screen, as they were intended. But I'm really hoping that, like the last 3D craze, the current one eventually goes out of style. Because, to this day, they've yet to successfully create a system that works without you either A) wearing special headgear that eventually gives you a migraine headache or B) require you to sit in the same position for the entire length of the show.

It also doesn't help that Hollywood, in its recent drive to make everything 3D, is trying to do it on the cheap. By that, I mean taking movies that were not filmed for 3D and using computers to "make" them 3D. What we get is a film that either looks like absolute shite or is littered with so few elements in 3D, you wonder why you paid 4 extra bucks on the ticket.

agreed...a gift for Costner, who can't act

re: #165 Obdicut

That most certainly did not amuse me. And when they finally did give the Oscar to Marty, it was for a lesser film.

To my Lizard friends with family/friends in Israel, my thoughts are with you and yours.

And to our Louisiana Lizards, too.

Went and saw it, but much preferred it when it was called Dances With Wolves.

I liked the Disney animated version, Pocahontas.

The Problem With 3D - It hurts your eyes. Always has, always will.

YES. THIS.

I hate going to 3D movies because I always end up with a headache, even if the 3D effects are minimal. Avatar 3D literally made me dizzy and nauseous for hours after the fact, and not just because of the terrible script and acting. I was shaky and miserable for ages.

Still, as long as this nonsense is going on, I'm doomed to seeing every action film my boyfriend and I can agree on in 3D. Up next: Thor. I hope it's worth it.

There's only one reason I'm going to see Priest: Karl Urban.

I've read the original manhwa (i.e., Korean manga) and Priest has nothing in common with it, just from the previews alone. Still, Karl's in it and he's a vampire, so I'm going to watch it even though I know it's going to suck. It will be nice to see a vampire in a film that doesn't sparkle. :-P

I like a few of the actors in the film, but I plan to skip it because it happens to look like a crap movie.
