A fool and his money.

Too early for a "Book it, done" prediction?

I don't understand any large donor supporting Romney at this point. The money would be better spent trying to secure congress.

Aren't so called conservatives always saying things like "You can't solve a problem by throwing money at it"?

Is this the same guy who was going to fund a bunch of racist anti-Obama ads?

TV ads are not going to be what wins the election. Organizing get out the vote drives in the swing states will.

Hey, at least their record is better than the Houston Astros'. *sob*

I am just curious if all these rich people dumping millions of dollars in the Republican campaign think that they are creating jobs like this?

I mean, how many Starbucks/McDonalds/KFC franchises can you start with $10million?

It's not even worth trying to expand your business now, what with Taxbongo planning to tax everything you own away and give it to the freeloaders.

Those millions of dollars of campaign contributions are a wise investment. For only when the Kenyan usurper is unseated will job creators, and therefore America, have any chance to flourish once more under the sunlight of freedom.

This guy does not own the Cubs. His son and lezbo daughter own it, and I am pretty sure they troll pops by donating just as much to libs.

More money to promote a message that is complete and total crap? To one their own.

Why would you even put that prop in when it's going to be painfully obvious before the shoe even premieres how wrong your prediction is? Everyone and their mother knew full well the Cubs weren't going anywhere this year.

I don't know what year the power is supposed to have gone out (after 2012 I guess), but, we are talking about an "alternate universe" where somehow anything powered can lose the ability to be powered instantly..... so, the Cubs being 8 time World Series champions in the 2000's will just be par for the course.

Yeah. I'm gonna watch, just so that I can see how they suspend Maxwell's equations for electrical circuits, but not light.

Seems to me that within roughly 24 hours after the lights went out, I could rig up a dynamo built from wire and some permanent magnets, and have at least a modicum of electrical power available. Not to mention I could build a battery from the stuff available at the local Lowes or Home Depot.

At least if I am trying to understand the concept of this program (guess we'll see if they give any "realistic" explanations on the show)... anything you make to try to "make" power won't work. It isn't just "electricity" not working.... somehow, something makes anything that can be powered won't work.... I mean, otherwise, if it was just "electricity"... wouldn't we just have gotten stuff working off of gas engines or something? They make it appear like all anyone can do is use crossbows.

Overall, seems like a WAY overreaching premise.

For those of us that aren't inundated with tons of TV commercials for upcoming shows...please elaborate as to what TV show you guys are talking about.

It's called Revolution and I think it premiers tonight on NBC. The idea is all technology stops, so pretty much anything more complex then a lever, such as gears, pulleys, etc... just does not work. A family has a magic doodad that can make tech work and possible reverse the effects, and of course the bad guys want it.

Anyways JJ Abrahms of Lost fame is the executive producer, so don't expect this thing to make a lot of sense, because he and his show runners do not ever really give a flying fark about establishing consistent rules for their shows universe.

How many MLB teams have NEVER had a cumulative record below .500?

I'll wait.
