  • Re: Good Will Hunting: Bar Scene

    @John James Because "some Marxian historian -- Pete Garrison, probably" is a direct quote. Hence the quotes. @Marko I would also suggest people read Saul Alinksy's "Rules for Radicals". Does that mean I think it's the "right fucking book"? :P

  • Who is your favorite newscaster?

My personal favorites are Glenn Beck, John Stossel, Andrew Napolitano, Greg Gutfeld, Steven Crowder, Lee Doren, Mike Trivisonno, Michael Medved, and Dennis Prager. And I guess if I have to pick
