  4. TPP will allow foreign countries to explore for hydrofracking natural gas without having to be liable to Americans for environmental pollution. If we impose regulations on their operations, they will be entitled to sue for compensation for having to be responsible drillers.

    I noticed when watching a MR clip on my FB page that the start time given for the weekday live performance of the MR was 11:30. Isn’t it now 12 Noon? Haven’t listened live in many months so I don’t know.

    “I sometimes feel like I’m caught in a vise. Some people feel like I’m some kind of hero,” he told The Times earlier this year. “Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like I’m a fool for believing in peace.”

    Really loving Isabell. As much as I like yur work, Sam, I think Isabell adds an important change of pace/mood/feeling to the show. Reminds me of my enjoyment of you and Maron together, though very different, of course

    I don’t understand Cliff’s complaint in regards to the criteria of/for? the “Dream Act”… A long list is a good thing, right?

    Cliff is a decent guest and he does a good job of referencing precedent but a lot seems to fly over his head and most of his attempts at humor are embarrassing.

        Laugh Out Loud!
        Coming from the king of “a lot seems to fly over his head”!

        I encourage you to manifest a more substantive criticism. If you can pinpoint a particular issue in my post then please do so.

      • HolyCity2012 says:

        I am being completely sincere when I state that I eagerly anticipate your retort.

      • HolyCity2012 says:

        Seriously Dog, This is no joke.

        Get at me.

        I am sure that you have some airtight points that are aimed at me. Go ahead and pull the trigger.

        Come on “Reefercake…”..?

        I am sure that a grown man who employes Marijuana to establish some sort identity for himself is capable of compiling a bulletproof list of counterpoints to unleash.

        Bring it on!

    Isabell is a type of person that I have only known briefly in my real life. I enjoy her general demeanour. I can imagine her as a thoroughly entertaining field reporter for video segments.
