8/16 - 12:00 p.m. - They said we're excused for lunch then called us immediately back after we left and said we could go home. Because I parked in the lawyers parking (HAHAHAHA) I was the first one out while the rest of them were stuck. Also nearby a lawyer is in his Lamborghini. Jerkwad.
8/16 There's 100s and 100s of people. They said park on 5 or 6 floor and i parked on 2. haha fuck you. they said dress up and i didn't haha fuck you. i went to the excuse line but this mexican guy was a dick and wouldnt let me out.
this one crazy lady is trying to give away sandwiches. i wouldn't trust that in todays age in CAlifornia. this one hillbilly fuck set his ringer to max and answers his phone after 3 rings and then uses speaker phone to talk. what a dick. now this comedian judge is giving us a speech.
The man who led the controversial Fast and Furious anti-gun-trafficking operation will step down as the interim head of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Justice Department announced Tuesday as it named a new acting director for the agency.
hah! This comment on the article was awesome.
The Adventures of Barack the DECIDER.
Superbowl, fourth quarter, 10 seconds on the clock, fourth down, down by 2 and 20 yards from their goal, head coach Barack Obama asked if he will go for a field goal replies: "I'm carefully considering all options and keeping aware of ongoing developments and will asses the situation as more information comes available".
My chick's brother-in-law has worked in the space industry for like 12+ years? Anyway turns out the business is dead. They shut down the space shuttle program and they said that a TON of programs have been shut down without it showing up in the press. So they're sitting around with nothing to do or looking for other jobs.
What's funny is people keep talking about being an astronaut as the classic example of what you can be and finally it's not someone you can actually be anymore.
I think space is good for technology innovations but otherwise kinda unless since I don't think we'll ever be moving to other planets or finding other life. But it's sure a lot better to spend our money on that instead of rebuilding IRAQ or all the other scams the gov uses our money on.
If you`re looking for another wife out in space you may be disappointed. However, I think this is a big mistake by Obama. Maybe not in the next 20 years, but in the next 100 space IS going to be necessary for our future and the more we put it off the longer it`ll take to get where we need to be. Not only that, but what if another country gets ahead of us? By the time we catch up the Chinese may dominate the rest of the solar system.
Just think about the resources we can find on other planets. Find a dead world with all the mineral deposits we`d need, and you can mine to your heats content and not even worry about the environmental impact on that planet. Eventually we`re going to be overcrowded on this planet and resources will eventually run out. Where can we expect to find more if not space? Even if there is no life anywhere else, we`d need to expand or die. I think Hawking said it best in a relatively recent interview.
On the surface it seems like a good idea. The poor people who can't afford health insurance or people whose jobs don't support it get some help. But there's TONS of problems you (some of you) idiots don't even think or care about.
The Drug Companies are major pushers of this crap. Democrats are usually anti-corporation so they shoulda thought about that. Imagine everyone in line for their 1-5 drugs is major profit for health care.
This is a bad time to do all this. People are out of work, unless this somehow generates jobs. Maybe now everyone works handing out drugs? haha.
One of the biggest motivators for trying to better yourself and get a better job is for BETTER BENEFITS. Now aholes can work at Taco Bell and get benefits.
When people get access to free shit, they start abusing. Look at Welfare already. People sneak into the country then start getting it. Imagine the same abuses with health care. When shit is free, people start going all of the time, that's why your HMO charges you $10 per visit, to sorta make you not want to do that. OMG my finger hurts, let's go to the hospital! That results in longer lines for everyone and more $$ spent.
To pass this the people that voted yes got bribed. They got all kinds of UNRELATED CRAP put in the bill that wastes our money to buy their vote. What kinda dirty shit is that.
Nationalized Health Care works in some other countries but this is America that manages to fuck up all programs like that such as Education, Medicare, Social Security, and more.
"The insurance industry, which spent millions on advertising trying to block the bill, would come under new federal regulation."
To pay for the changes, the legislation includes more than $400 billion in higher taxes over a decade and cuts more than $500 billion from planned payments to hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and other providers that treat Medicare patients.
For the first time, most Americans would be required to purchase insurance, and face penalties if they refused. Much of the money in the bill would be devoted to subsidies to help families at incomes of up to $88,000 a year pay their premiums.
So if you make over 88k, you're f-ed. Come try to live in California, it's $36,000 a year just for rent for a house.
I think fining people $700 for not having insurance is completely obscene! I can understand the reasoning behind the car insurance, you have to have it in case you hurt SOMEONE ELSE, but I can do whatever the heck I want w/ my own health! Whether I want it to be insured or not should be my choice and not my government`s.
They suck. If I bought my home after Nov, 2009, I'd get $8,000. Since it was before, there were lower limits. I think I *MIGHT* be able to get $400 maybe by amending last year. Then they want 4 MONTHS to give you a refund.
They also completely hose you if you're not married. What kinda nazi f-ers force marriage over single people. If they're going to shove all this being gay is ok in our faces, how about also saying being SINGLE is ok.
Try living in California, Every house is 350-400k+. A great house is 500k+ It sounds like you make a lot but it all goes to damn rent. They should at least modify it based on where you live.
They totally punish success. I get nothing for student loan interest, or even child credit. I know their goal is to give as much $$ to the least f-ing successful people in life. That makes a lot of sense, if you're f-ing commies.
Let's help people out that need it but let's stop rewarding people who do jack shit in life but have babies.
Link - That's why we should never feel bad if the gov doesn't get all the money they want. Stupid f-ers.
The United States has long suspected that much of the billions of dollars it has sent Pakistan to battle militants has been diverted to the domestic economy and other causes, such as fighting India.
Now the scope and longevity of the misuse is becoming clear: Between 2002 and 2008, while Al Qaeda regrouped, only $500 million of the $6.6 billion in American aid actually made it to the Pakistani military, two army generals tell The Associated Press.
The account of the generals, who asked to remain anonymous because military rules forbid them from speaking publicly, was backed up by other retired and active generals, former bureaucrats and government ministers.
Link - He's on track to being the shittiest president in the last 100 years. - according to a New York Times report that says one of the goals will be to a create a path for illegal immigrants to become legal.
So you sneak in here illegally and you're rewarded! Congrats. What other things can we do illegally and be rewarded? How about cheating on taxes. How about speeding. Share the wealth.
He also rewards failure of the banks, car dealerships, etc with BAILOUT.
Absolutely ridiculous. What a complete moron. It seems every week Obama does several completely retarded things - last week it was bowing to the scumbag Saudi King and denouncing America (to the great appreciation of the Europeans) and now it`s this bullshit.
I`m just worried the history books won`t tear his ass up as bad as they should because it wouldn`t be `politically correct`.
I`d start by not showing subservience to the king of a country that requires its women to have written approval from a man to drive.
And I`d show pride for America rather than apologizing to the Europeans for not catering to their `leading role`. Obama is a complete pushover, not a leader.
And finally, I certainly wouldn`t offer citizenship in any way to the illegal immigrants responsible for murdering real American citizens every day. Illegal immigration is a CRIME. They have already demonstrated a lack of respect for US law - get rid of them.
And considering how bad the economy is, and how we have such a high unemployment rate, the last thing we need to do is give jobs in unskilled labor to more illegals.
Does that answer your pointless rhetorical question?
Comparing illegal immigration to child pornography? Damn, that is extreme!
At least stick to something within the realm, like movie piracy and drugs.
What cracks me up about this whole argument, is people "assume" illegals want to live here. They don't. Yes, you heard me, they don't want to live in this great country of ours. Ask ANY illegal especially from our neighbor in the south, and they will tell you they would leave here in a heartbeat, if they could come back and work when needed.
Problem is, immigration enforcement has gotten so good, it's a pain in the ass to move back and forth, and the price of coyotes has gone up. It's just cheaper to stay here.
Regardless, America needs cheap labor. Institute a plan that will allow "illegals" to work here during the growing seasons. Have farmers in the US pay a finders fee to Homeland Security, which in turns grants permits to migrant workers to be employed here seasonally. Restaurants, hotels, etc, etc, can apply for special workers. Farmers and Tourism get cheap labor, illegals get to work here "legally" and go back home. No new taxes are created. Everything is paid for by businesses. Business that don't comply get fined up the ass. $1,000 for a first offense, $3000 for a second, and shut down for a third offense.
It sounds doable with the exception of one constituency. Unions. Yeah, they will cock block this on the spot.
In case someone is wondering, Bush actually wanted a similar program, but you know who cock blocked that one.
"It`s funny how nobody with any power seems particularly excited to try your "START enforcing our laws" strategy on any meaningful scale."
The reason is not because it isn`t a good idea. The reason politicians (on ALL sides) are hesitant to do anything that is clearly necessary is because it cuts into this enormous new pool of voters.
And then many Hispanics, for some reason, feel that enforcing a law against ILLEGAL immigration is a direct attack against them. It isn`t. It`s an attack against criminals; our nation welcomes legal Hispanic immigrants with open arms.
"It shouldn`t be difficult to become a U.S. Citizen but it SHOULD have requirements."
Precisely. If you`re an honest, hard worker and you do it legally, it should be relatively easy to become an American citizen. Just don`t start out by disrespecting the law, sneaking over and having 10 babies that automatically become American citizens.
"The problem is child porn is most certainly not a victimless crime."
Neither is illegal immigration. Try to say its a victimless crime to families that have lost loved ones to gang members and drug smugglers. And what about the landowners on the border who have to contend with illegals stealing their property, breaking their shit and leaving garbage, human refuse and even dead bodies on their property?
Plus the amount of taxes illegal immigrants pay obviously doesn`t cover the amount of services they and their spawn receive from federal, state and local governments. Which probably counteracts all the spiffy discounts we get from the cheap labor.
Smokin Joe - I don`t know what is so hard to understand. I know that a lot of illegal immigrants sneak over here just for jobs and they work hard and don`t shoot people, steal shit or deal drugs. I`m not stupid.
The problem is that there is a substantial amount that do. If we just ignore the problem it is just going to get worse - and it has been getting worse in the last 10 years by leaps and bounds.
And even if no illegal immigrant ever committed a violent crime, well, they are often still a drain on our nation because of the benefits they receive relevant to the barely existent taxes they pay (they`re illegal, remember? Barely any pay and no social security number) and the large amount of kids they have that basically become the responsibility of the state to take care of.
And just because I may not currently be directly effected by the problem doesn`t mean I won`t be in the future or that it isn`t worth discussing. How many illegals do you think Obama ran into in Illinois? He still has a pretty extreme stance, given that he hasn`t witnessed the problem first hand.
A pair of bills introduced in the U.S. Senate would grant the White House sweeping new powers to access private online data, regulate the cybersecurity industry and even shut down Internet traffic during a declared "cyber emergency."
Senate bills No. 773 and 778, introduced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.V., are both part of what's being called the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, which would create a new Office of the National Cybersecurity Advisor, reportable directly to the president and charged with defending the country from cyber attack.
This sounds reasonable. However, if you read the bill here:
On page 40 has some truly frightening implications, among them granting The Department of Commerce plenary authority to invade networks and access the data therein irrespective of Constitutional or legal restrictions against that action.
Finally, on page 45, there is a provision within this draft allowing The President to order disconnection of any "critically important" infrastructure - but it does not define what that is, once again, granting effective plenary authority to The President to silence communications irrespective of Constitutional protections regarding Free Speech.
Well I'm really pissed at smokers right now. Yesterday I was at the pool and some ahole sat outside it and smoked and we had to smell it.
At the Spectrum (mall) so many people were smoking last night, and all in the middle of people. They didn't care.
Maybe it's my own warped perspective, but in my personal experience, smokers are generally the most inconsiderate people in the world. I especially love when I see someone smoking in their car with all windows rolled up and children in the back.
I also hate how designated smoking areas at malls/office buildings are generally right at the entrance so you have to walk through their poison cloud just to get inside.
Garrison - haha Seriously, I don't care if people smoke - just do not do it around me and my children because when your smoke starts coming into my personal space, you give up all "freedom" and "privacy" because you are intruding on mine. I do not want to smell that crap. I do not want my child exposed to that crap. I do not want my husband to be exposed to that crap. If you gotta smoke, go out in to the fekking parking lot, roll up the windows and have a field day!
