The people of Houston and their religious leaders must be absolutely secure in the knowledge that their religious affairs are beyond the reach of the government.”

If there was ever a chance that I would hate voted for Abbott, this statement would put the nail in that coffin.  So if they want to engage in blatant political maneuvering, snake handling, polygamy, or child marriage, their religious freedom should keep them sacrosanct from government oversight?  Bullshit.

Forget the live sporting events through a major network.  You can get MLB and NHL, subject to blackout, direct from the provider.  The NFL just needs to get onboard and stop the licensing with Verizon and DirecTV restrictions to open their customer base.

Religion is as much a vehicle for control as anything else.

Quote
Just one day after HBO said it would start an Internet-only offering, CBS announced on Thursday its own subscription streaming service that lets people watch its live programming and thousands of current and past shows on demand.
...
The CBS All Access service, at $6 a month, made its debut on Thursday
...
Subscribers will be able to stream local CBS television stations in 14 markets, including Chicago, Los Angeles and New York, with more affiliates expected to join.
...
The CBS service will make available on demand in all United States markets episodes of current shows like “The Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS” the day after they are shown, and more than 5,000 episodes of shows it is calling CBS Classics like “Star Trek,” “Cheers” and “MacGyver.”

Advertisements on the live stream will be the same as those on the traditional CBS broadcast. For the on-demand programming, the typical 12 to 16 minutes of ads an hour will be reduced 25 percent. CBS Classics will stream without ads.

Politics and religion don't match well in my opinion. 

For millennia, and in many places even today, they're inseparable.

The more things change...

Look at the history of religion.  What you believe is determined primarily by your parents, your country, and the time frame that you were born in.  There were no spontaneous Jewish communities that were found in the Americas when it was explored.  There were no adherents to the Aztec religion in the Old World. 

Religion was spread peaceably through missionaries and through fire and sword.  But the spread was always performed by man.  The consolidation and fragmentation of doctrines were performed by men.

I'm glad that you have found things that work for you, ATB.  Most would not attempt to dissuade you from your faith.  but there are many others that have chosen a different path, one that does not rely on organizations that use emotional arguments and threats of pain, separation, and loss as motivations to bring them into the fold.  The scriptures, even the words of Christ, reinforces the idea that you are nothing without him, that they are of no value unless they believe.

Those that go on a path without faith find meaning in their own lives, accomplishments, and family, choosing to make the most of their time in this world.  Even if the faithful believe that we were placed here with special purpose, why seek to deny the opportunities and joys that this world brings?  In the mind of the religious, did he not place this world here for that purpose, or is it one giant test of asceticism?

Mom said to me last night that it would be her prefered way to go.  That being said, she helped out a bunch when her sister, the best of the family, and a cardiac nurse, went through cancer for six years before succumbing.

I'll finish paying for the services of my wedding photographer, probably purchasing the use of an awning, as it's currently expected that there will be rain on my wedding day.  And it's anything but ironic.

I had to smile when I read this. My wife and I got married in her living room by a public notary, no ceremony, no guests, the only expenses were the rings and the new dress she wanted, although she specifically bought one that she could wear to any formal occasion (she's the money manager in the family).

We will celebrate 35 years of marriage next month. Mind you, it will be between the releases of Assassin's Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, so she understands we will only be going away for the weekend slywink

I might be taking a look at Alien Isolation, but some of the discussion I saw about save points being far apart has me concerned.

It would have been easier.  and a hell of a lot cheaper.

I don't know how Stealth it is, considering there's a graphic on the slide show, and the banner ad was for that before it got replaced by Alien Isolation.

Too bad the NFL was opposing the FCC efforts.  The NFL is going to marginalize itself right out of being the number one sport in the US.

Quote
This summer, the league and its broadcast partners mounted a public relations campaign that touted the regulation, saying it ensures football remains on free television. Any FCC action to eliminate the rule, they warned, would hasten the migration of NFL programming to pay TV, ultimately depriving many fans of the ability to watch games.

That tactic angered GOP Commissioner Ajit Pai.

“Some have tried to scare sports fans by arguing that football games will move from broadcast television to cable or satellite TV if the FCC eliminates the sports blackout rule,” Pai said. “Let me address that argument head on. To begin with, there is no way that this can happen anytime soon. The NFL’s contracts with over-the-air broadcasters extend until 2022, but more importantly, by moving games to pay TV, the NFL would be cutting off its nose to spite its face.”

I check Tom's Hardware when this question comes up.  You're four levels from the toppest of the top, and they don't recommend an upgrade unless you'll move up at least three levels, as the improvement is likely less than you're capable of noticing.  I'm five levels below you, and aside from having to turn off Hair Physics on Tomb Raider, I haven't had any thoughts about how much better my life would be with a newer card.

Girl at work got the 6+ this weekend. I can put it in the front pocket of my jeans and sit comfortably. It's obviously taking up more space than my 4s, but it's not as bad as I imagined. I think it would feel odd to hold it to my head talking, but that's a pretty rare thing.

Nada.  I've got too much on the backlog, nothing is grabbing me, and I've got too much stuff to do.  Like go to the Dallas Stars hockey game this evening, get a songlist to the DJ, and find a caterer for the wedding.

Sales people are there to sell.  They are not technically trained enough to walk most people through anything more complicated than an out of the box setup.  Nor do they get enough practice.  relying on a store sales rep to walk you through a backup is like asking a car salesman why your engine is making a funny noise.
