Each year, attendees of the event are required to be decked out in costumes while at the festival's wasteland compound with organizers designing elaborate sets complete with Mad Max-style cars. Festival goers also drive out to the event in custom-made vehicles.

Orr, a life support aquarist at a public aquarium in Las Vegas, said he first learned of the festival through a former partner and their first year going, they decided to build a car.

He said he has worked on cars casually, rebuilding engines, but he described the competition to outdo himself by constructing a junkyard monster better than the previous year as an 'addiction.'

Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.

Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car.

Don't get your ass beat, cracker.

I hope not too! Its exciting here.... crazy making...


Gotta link? Not that I doubt you but saying someone is lying without proof, doesn't make it so....


Seems like a lot of hand wringing in the PolitiFact story African Americans being likely Democrats, therefore the number is high. But it doesn't say Cruz was "lying" with that statistic, just that there might be more to the story, but it isn't wrong.

I've not heard a coherent argument that Clinton isn't a progressive.

Meaning .....

But lets say it again ....... just in case you unplug your ears...

It has been suggested by some that Hillary, as a woman, has had to play the game, and that underneath everything, Hillary is a progressive. While the first part may be true, she is no progressive. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been publicly fighting against Wall Street and influence-peddling since the 90's. A careful review of Hillary's record paints a picture of a candidate who never predicted, and was caught off guard by the backlash from the progressive left against the Reagan Revolution and subsequent intermingling of money and politics.

Now that the pendulum is swinging, she has had to adapt -- giving rise to the "progressive who likes to get things done." But it should be understood by Democratic voters that this is a re-branding. Clinton's new found progressive identity represents a shift from who she has been since she entered politics.
