“Not really - from what I understand cable shows for the most part pay next to nothing. Broadcast TV is apparently still where the big bucks are.”

“I don't think the idea is to make millions off of this show, far from it, it is an outreach by JGL to find talented people in production, give them experience, draw attention to talented individuals through their creative and production inputs. I'd jump at the opportunity to work with him if I was still young and breaking into this field. My understanding is that broadcast TV still hires people, at least for now.”

“Someone please explain to me how having to include an identifiable piece of metal "violates second amendment rights" as the NRA claims? The argument that if you put metal bullets in it doesn't fly, because if that's the deal then a metal part does nothing to restrict 2nd amendment rights. Or, who's to say resin bullets cannot be manufactured?”

“Holy crap; you must live in the cynical state of planet paranoid. I would hope when a confused 72 year old man knocks on the door he would expect to get help, not blown away. At least, that's the America I grew up in and would want to leave to my children. Not some armed state of 'blow away anything you can't immediately identify'.

Secondly, You ever had to care for a parent or elderly person with Alzheimers? Try it and then tell us it's all on the caregiver. As if that mans own wife of 50 plus years wasn't doing everything she could (or probably afford with the crap that passes for the current healthcare system we have) to keep him safe.”

“"Largely White Audience Turns Out To Hear Rand Paul Speak At African-American Outreach Event"

That's just the Red State Purity Patrol making sure he doesn't go all liberal-commie on them. As long as he speaks and doesn't really outreach, that's OK, because the GOP has repeatedly told us it is all about the message not the policy. Apparently for them it's what you say is important, not what you do.”

“The numbers are good and they come from a bipartisan source. They have been trending in the right direction for quite awhile now verifying that Obama has reversed the precipitous negative jobs slide Bush left him to deal with. Remember all the 'bagger predictions last year that if Obama were re-elected the economy would instantly crater? That proved to be as true as pretty much any of their fiscal dogma. Yet, with pockets stuffed with billionaires' dollars and seats guaranteed by unprecedented gerrymandering (look up 'Redmap') they will arrogantly press on regardless of the abysmal track record of the majority of their policies.

Rajeev Dhawan, director of the Economic Forecasting Center at Georgia State University says: "The economy is poised for takeoff but suffers from headwinds. If we can survive January and there's no shutdown, we can take off."

Anyone willing to take bets the 'baggers and their spineless conservative allies will put Country before party this time around? Me either. They LOST the right to control the wheels of government, and they will continue like spoiled children to do everything they can to make sure they don't turn at all.”

“Yeah, it's not working, so why try to improve the situation? Just a waste of time. While we are at it, people are speeding and running stop signs ALL OVER THE PLACE! So obviously criminals are out in force in cars, so why have ineffective traffic laws that they won't follow? It's stupid. And think of the many, many people who hurt their backs removing stumps that sure could use dynamite. But can we buy it over the counter anymore? Nooo...thanks to stupid restrictions passed by some wobbly kneed commies. So people are getting hurt and that's a crime. This line of 'reasoning' can be impeccably implied to any of these stupid laws that obviously don't work. We should not waste our time trying to improve the situation, we should just nuke the legal framework already in place because it obviously doesn't work 100% of the time. Right?”

Bryan Simmons on Dec 8, 2013 at 22:05:48

“It is already illegal to speed so what new law would you pass that would stop speeding. It is already illegal to run a stop sigh so what law would you pass that would prevent people from running stop signs. I won't comment on dynamite because you obviously know nothing about stump removal nor dynamite procurement.
Your argument is that more law will fix the problem so please share your vast wisdom with us and tell us what law you would pass that would have prevented the shooting? Last time I checked criminals, by definition, don't obey the law.”

“So let me get this straight: this Danille Hayes woman was trying to deny her son his God given and constitutionally guaranteed second amendment rights? How DARE she! Maybe the kid saw Obama coming to take away the weapon and needed to defend his rights! Maybe he saw a bad guy with a gun and was just trying to be the NRA-solution good guy with a gun! What is this country coming to when a red-blooded son of America is treated so?”

“What a truck load of hogwash. God given? Really? No where in the 2nd Amendment does it say that I have to let you into MY place of business where I pay the rent and I am liable for the safety of my other customers if I deem you to be a threat. Your "God given right" to carry that gun stops at my doorstep.”
