  1. Q: What do you call 19 millionaires sitting indoors in warmth and comfort watching postseason football? A: da Bears!
  2. Why does a dog lick his nuts? Because he can!
  3. Once upon a time there was a chicken, and a farmer. One day, the chicken turns to the farmer, and he says. "
  4. The fact that a shrink is exempt from civil liability does not mean that you can't file suit to challenge the diagnosis, it means that you can't collect damages from him. That's a huge difference, and the fact that the author plays fast and loose with that one fact instantly renders the rest of the article somewhat suspect. I'm not, by the way, arguing about the law here: based on what I know I certainly don't like the law nor do I like the way it was rammed through, and if I voted in that jurisdiction I would have a hard time voting for any legislator who supported it. Uhhh, I wo
  5. No, I haven't.... but then again I'm not arguing about what it does or doesn't say, either. But even without any background, one place where the author is clearly wrong is right here: The fact that a shrink is exempt from civil liability does not mean that you can't file suit to challenge the diagnosis, it means that you can't collect damages from him. That's a huge difference, and the fact that the author plays fast and loose with that one fact instantly renders the rest of the article somewhat suspect.

  6. Umm.... why don't we actually look at what the legislation says, rather than looking at what other people say the legislation says. Primary sources and all that...
  7. I want to be in a position of not caring whether or not you drive your car: your decision to drive or not to drive should be absolutely neutral to me. As it is, though, when you drive your car you impose costs that I must bear; the taxes you pay on the gasoline you use do not fully offset those costs. As a believer in free market solutions, I would be all in favor of reducing the income tax (since why should we be taxing something that we want to encourage everyone to do) and increasing gasoline taxes to the point that driving is no longer net subsidized, with the overall result being reve
  8. I have no idea if they're wrong-headed or right-headed; you can always dredge up law enforcement groups on either side of any gun rights debate; The leadership of these organizations have their own obvious and less obvious onstituencies and allies to answer to; I suspect the position of any such group has a lot more to do with electoral politics than it does with any sort of analysis of the impact of one policy or another.
  9. Generally, in a membership organization, "Executive Director" is a staff person, and thersfore would not be a member. The Executive Director is hired help.
  10. Yeah, I read that twice and am still not sure what point he was trying to make. I can't tell if he agrees or disagree with the Sheriff's statement on gun control. Maybe he was neither agreeing nor disagreeing, but filling in some background as to what exactly a New York State Sheriff is, and how that might inform the position their association takes? Seems like upstate, sheriffs are cops and more like what most people think of when they think "sheriff"; downstate, they're process-servers; very different situation; very different risk; very different population they're dealing with, et
  11. You know what's like a penis? A doctoral degree: Simply for having one, you get paid more than someone who doesn't have one, even if you do exactly the same work. Except in very rare cases, you don't actually use it on the job. Polite people don't spend a lot of time talkng about theirs or calling attention to the fact they have one.
  12. Hoo boy... this one more than makes up for the times I get annoyed at your for dredging up old, silly threads.
  13. Dear Mr. President:

    Thanks for the note this morning. I'm a bit jittery abolut the anniversary. It will be Monday and that is also the day my new grand daughter is due to arrive. Of course that could change but that's the date the doctor gave them. So tomorrow I'll drive to Seattle and take my son Max out to buy a new car. I want the baby in a good car. That will also be good d...

  14. is, without a doubt, a living god.

  15. Mate even thats getting tricky now. Haven't these idiots got anything better to do than dream this shit up? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics...ng-goggles.html School bans 'dangerous' swimming goggles A school has banned children from wearing goggles during swimming lessons for fear they could hurt themselves........ What is it like to say, "I'm from Ysgol Bryn Coch junior school, in Mold, north Wales?"
