The citizen did pick up his brass. I guess an armed society is polite.

Plus the brass is court admissible evidence...

I just changed my mind. I do want a kid like that. Hey, that would make me God, won't it?

Joseph.

Not sure how that worked out for him but if your Jesus dies childless like the last one you'd stand to inherent his goodies.

speaking of December/February romances we had a football coach/math teacher who went through THREE students-turned-wives. When one got to old for him he'd find a hot teen student and divorce his 20 something old crone of a wife. How he stayed out of jail I don't know. A friend of mine ran into "coach" a few years ago. "Coach" was not teaching anymore, bitter at having gotten too old for the teens and getting crushed with alimony. Awww, poor baby.

You are forgetting something. The dude came back to life after 3 days.

So his grieving, whack job followers said but the fact is he disappeared just after that never to be seen again. Except on pieces of toast.

Legally he could be declared dead yet again.

Besides if they accepted God, they wouldn't be homosexuals in the first place, chasing down young boys for their sick pleasures.

By that "logic" a priest would be the benchmark for someone who has accepted God. As such priests would NEVER be a homosexual and NEVER be caught "chasing down young boys for their sick pleasures".

Right?

Robots are great when energy is cheap.

It will take a while before energy (i.e. electricity) reaches $15 an hour.

Even then an air puppet doesn't' take breaks, require health care or lose a smile.

Of course the air puppet can't go out and buy a Slurpee. And someone else's air puppets can't buy whatever this air puppet's boss is selling. So economically its a dead end.

The guy knows it will be a hard experience, filled with suffering, yet he's selfish enough to go through with it anyways.

Tell that ASSHOLE to adopt!

Huh, why should he adopt. A child is a child-so it is ok for an adopted child to be filled with suffering?? When I lived in Los Angeles, there are the rabid pet adopting advocates who scream bloody murder if you try and buy a purebred pet. They scream that by doing so you have sentenced a dog in the shelter to death and the more rabid nuts will call you a murderer.

I am seeing the far lefties start mouthing the same thing about kids nowadays-there are millions of starving kids-adopt one, the world does not need one more human.

There is something about watching your own genes pass on, to see your family's characteristics in the kids. more power to the dude.

Wow, talk about apples to oranges!

I would expect to at least receive a reply when I contact someone about their rental. The potential income I bring to their otherwise rotting, used domicile should garner at least a Thank You for your inquiry no?

Its no different than the job market. Job seekers are expected to follow all the protocols of courtesy yet now most employers don't bother with the courtesy of a thanks but no thanks.

More graphic detail of presumed sexual contact is required.

Was it shouting "SAY MY NAME BITCH!" from on top like Alyson Hanigan?

Without details how can we know the boundaries?

Otherwise she should only be apologizing to the person(s) involved.

Public confessions are usually about eliciting pity.

With her in it?

Thanks but I'll take the PG version.

I've worked with several people who had a 2+ hr commute each way each day. One was a CEO who during the week lived on a boat in the bay or on the company roof (presumably in a tent). Another was a lab tech who lived in a VW van in the parking lot but drive home on weekends. Others actually drove to and from work each day spending 4 or more hours in the car fighting bumper to bumper traffic.

“There were several candidates during the Canadian elections. One of them was this brash asshole who just spoke his mind. He didn’t really offer any solutions. He just said outrageous things. We thought it was funny. Nobody really thought he’d ever be president. It was a joke. But we just let the joke go on for too long. He kept gaining momentum, and by the time we were all ready to say, ‘OK, let’s get serious now. Who should really be president?’ He was already being sworn into office. We weren’t paying attention! WE WEREN'T PAYING ATTENTION!”

I think a single parent, male or female, is making a big mistake trying to raise a child without help. I would encourage him not to go through with it or to get himself a partner first. Also the science is undecided when it comes to children raised by gay parents. Studies range from no effects at all to serious effects that handicap a child throughout life.

I'm going to guess the impact of a gay parent has a lot more to do with the community and less to do whether the parent is gay. If a kid with an openly single gay dad goes to an ultra-conservative religious private school the chances of that kid being seen negatively by peers is (I'm guessing) MUCH greater than if the kid goes to a public school in SF's Castro.

turtledove says

He makes substantially more than $100k/year. He's pretty wealthy in his own right and comes from a rich family to boot. So, he would be pretty screwed if he ever marries and then divorces.

From a manpower standpoint, he has a large family who will be very involved.... and he plans "to hire a nanny or two."

Sounds like he's got that covered.

iwog says

The homosexual individuals that I have run across haven't been the most magnanimous people in the world and are quite ego driven which is not a recipe for parental success so please tell him that he's going to sacrifice and sacrifice big time if he becomes a parent.

Is that so different than kids from divorced-and-dating parents or swinger couples? If child rearing were only done by *actual* June and Ward Cleaver types there wouldn't be too many kids out there.

I have a better idea for ALL the guys, living and working in Silicon Valley a/o the San Francisco Bay Area ... how about setting up a huge ex-pat SV/SFBA compound in Bangkok Thailand and then, the guys all work from 8PM to noon, the "graveyard" shift, for those US corporations. Then, when they're not working, they can bang hotties to their hearts' content.

I believe that this setup will beat all other scenarios in northern California.

Sounds great until the CEOs realize they can just fire the ex-pat SV/SFBA types but not before forcing them to train their 90% cheaper Thai replacements. Then it'll be the CEOs banging the Thai hotties on "business trips" to the Thai campus.

Colorado HealthOP announced Friday that the state Division of Insurance has said it can't keep selling health insurance. That's because the cooperative relied on federal support, and federal authorities announced last month they wouldn't be able to pay most of what they owed to a program designed to help health insurance co-ops get established.....

In a statement announcing its closure Friday, Colorado HealthOP said it was "well on its way" to repaying some $72.3 million it has borrowed from the federal fund. The co-op reported a net loss of $23 million last year....

"Taxpayers are on the hook for millions of dollars in loans given out to the CO-OP, money that will likely never be repaid," U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner said in a statement after the announcement. When Gardner was in the House, he joined other Republicans in a 2013 bill to repeal the fund in question.

Sounds like you can thank the Republicans for this one. Given the co-op was losing money and was able to survive only on government loans, this may be a good thing overall.

I was wondering, if the story is about US supplied "military hardware" why the guy in the picture was carrying a Russian made PK machine gun?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PK_machine_gun

The United States is currently unsure if Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) fighters, who have reportedly received nearly 50 tons of ammunition funded by American taxpayers, will participate in the U.S. operation to retake Raqqa, the de facto Syrian capital of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), according to the Pentagon.

Remember those stories about the USG buying up millions of dollars of ammo over the past few years? I guess now we know why.

http://www.politifact.com/oregon/statements/2014/jun/27/james-buchal/government-stockpiling-hundreds-millions-rounds-am/

Lesse, the cheapest round of 7.62x54 runs about $0.25 or so, probably less in mega bulk.

http://www.slickguns.com/category/ammo?caliber=12

$500M would yield...2B+ rounds!!!

FUCK that's a lot of ammo!

But wait,one roud of 7.62x54 weights 22g. 2B rounds would weigh about 49,000 tons, not 50 tons. 50 tons of 7.62x54 is about 2M rounds.

The real story here? The USG uses your taxes to pay 1000x too much for ammo!

If gun laws are Unconstitutional, then so too are laws prohibiting private citizens from possessing or making nuclear weapons, chemical weapon, biological weapons, land mines, tanks, attack helicopters, ICBMs, etc.

You are one fucked up in the head dude...

The Second Amendment never mentions the word guns. It uses the word arms, which is much more general.

Oh, and by the way, currently in the U.S. there are no rights to possess a gun.
