I think it's eric who has the problem, not his "history"...Dewey would classify that as either fiction or fantasy, not history.
Why? And what "Plant" are you smoking?
I always enjoy Mr. Hawkins' lists. In case no one else has said it, "Robby The Robot", though making a guest appearance on "Lost In Space" (LIS), was not the character whose tag-line was "That does not compute!". The "family" robot in LIS was merely named "Robot." The "Robbie The Robot" character was the robot in "Fantastic Planet", a wonderful sci-fi flick starring Walter Pigeon and a very young Leslie Nielsen. The great tie-in to this article is that the theme of "Fantastic Planet" was the evil nature of Man, manifested in the Id.

"A few cases of flu, including one confirmed case of swine flu, and four of children who tested positive for TB have been found -- but the incidence in a population this large hardly suggests the danger of epidemics breaking out." Ms Chavez has become a silly goose. Hospitals are "dangerous places" because you put all the sick people together--all the while applying antiseptics quite liberally to reduce the chance of infection. Here at these detainee centers, who is sterilizing the facilities? No one. So you crowd people together, with a "few" initially sick with some very bad, highly-contagious diseases, and believe that absolutely no one else becomes infected too? And these "detainees" are being released to the general population of the U.S. as soon as ICE can get rid of them. The Administration has set up another health care crisis. "Period."
This entire stunt by protesters is just like the old days of Mayor Coleman Young, who played the race card at every turn, and always wanted the suburbs to pay for his city's extravagance and poor management.
One thing that I did not read in the article, nor see in comments below, is the fact that Detroit Water & Sewage Dept. is basically the sole source of water for the entire Metro Detroit area. All of the suburbs get their water from DWSD. Guess who gets--and pays--those higher rates? Plus for months on end the slackers get notices to pay their bill. As for the notion that "white businesses" are in arrears and are not getting their water shut off, those businesses are also paying Detroit property taxes, income taxes, etc. as well as being a source of employment for residents...do the loons really want that water shut off? Also, a business, a going concern, is much more likely to pay overdue bills than the slackers of the city.
I don't see that flying at all. It would be like having Obama and Clinton on a ticket; Americans wouldn't vote for two rabid commies on the same ticket, but a commie and a buffoon is OK. Of course that is an unfair comparison. But I don't think America is ready for a two-woman ticket. I would prefer Palin over Bachman, mostly because Palin has that experience as governor, but also because with all the media cards stacked against her, she's still become a power-house after leaving office. As a no-nonsense conservative (IMHO), I think she'd be a good front-runner.

Professor Adams, do you really have any respect for Perez Hilton? I must admit a modicum of surprise at that.
It's a story from the AP--"Always Propaganda." HTH
Must have been the Weiner ("Call me Carlos") "intimate" photos that drove Snowden to expose the NSA secrets.
Most uninformed people can, once informed, change their minds due to the new information. Then, there's the "special kind of fool"; when they get new information, they wrack their brain attempting to shoehorn it into their current viewpoint. What we have here in Mr. Chapman is a very special kind of fool...from the Chicago Tribune no less!
