Journal damn_registrars's Journal: Blockbuster to close 3/8ths of what few they still have 6

Do you still have a Blockbuster Video near you? Me neither. Apparently they still have ~800 stores across the country. Well, they did, until announcing that they'll be closing 300 of them soon .

          I have to disagree with you on that. I cannot name a single bill that Obama has signed into law that Reagan would not have signed. Being as Reagan is the conservative idol for republicans, he should be a fair benchmark for being right-wing at least, if not far-fight. Considering Obama has not signed a bill that is less conservative than anything that Reagan signed - hell, Obama raised income taxes less often and for less total percentage than Reagan - it is a pretty solid claim to state Obama as being r

      Five more to go... and then it can rest
