The male of any species has to be either useful or pretty. Not both.
How It Should Have Ended....
Cab companies could adopt the Uber technologies and then they'd be back in the game.
The part I really like about Uber is the ability to see where cabs are, and hail it from wherever I'm standing.
VERY useful to me in France when we were in an area without much traffic and thus a stream of passing cabs.
There's no reason the cab companies couldn't adopt this, then I'd go back to using taxicabs 100% because I would
at least the illusion they are professionals with some kind of background checks etc. I've gotten in a few Uber cars
where I felt uneasy about it.
Besides the context of my statement was that the anti gun media are disingenuous in that they typically only run stories where some sicko gunned down a bunch of people and rarely report still sensationalized stories where people say thwart a home invasion robbery by shooting a couple black guys with a .12 gauge.
Yes because being gunned down in one of numerous public massacres can be totally cancelled out by a handful of home invasion cases.
Solution: The "anti gun media" runs home invasion rebuffed stories, for 10 days minimum. Because it might not be TOTALLY clear what happened and they'd need to get their best investigative journalists on that full time. Salacious details about how the robber gasped for breath or called for help add sauce.
If a massacre of innocents occur, run that for 30 seconds. Because nobody is interested why a 59-year old white man silently stands up and starts shooting randomly, or even why a 20-year old might murder kindergartners. Nobody should get upset about that, or be at all curious because it's just in bad taste to discuss such matters. We should spend much more time savoring stories of people who "deserved to die."
Americans clearly don't spend enough time already fantasizing about how good guys always win, and bad guys are really BAD and end up deservedly with bullets in heart and brain so they die without too much fuss. Our movies, books, etc. don't dwell enough on how guns can solve our problems.
MY landlord was repeating the "El Nino will come and SAVE us all!" story that's going around.
Liberals are anti Trump because they
I'm not anti-Trump. He's awesome! Please let him be the GOP candidate.
The corporate lobbyists are there, 24x7x365. They lose one mega-merger effort due to publicity, no big deal.
They wait a few months and file again. Maybe next administration, but EVENTUALLY they get what they want.
This is what you get, when Americans would rather watch The Bachelor than participate in governance.
What we need is to require liability insurance for gun ownership, with subsidies for those who can't afford it.
Perhaps this subsidy could be a flat monthly check for Militia Security? You could offer camps where they do some yearly woodcraft, orienteering, marching drill, maybe even training straight out of the Anarchist Cookbook and whatnot so they know how to overthrow a fascist Libtatorship. Of course, you wouldn't be permitted to REQUIRE any of this if they were too busy or something they could just spend one day at the machine gun range and call it good.
Just like Social Security, I'm sure Teabaggers would cash it.
Awesome and beautiful!
When the time is right, I will gladly serve as Motor Pool Chief for ApocalypseFuck. I'd better start refurbishing the Wasteland Vehicle Fleet.
Too skinny to be CiC. Call it Crazy would be inviting the bison to lick CheeseWiz off his puffy-nippled moobs.
It's crazy here in Davis right now.
DUMPS selling for north of $500K because some friend heard they were selling it, never even reaching the listings.
A Chinese friend told me, that 50% of the sales are to Chinese parents who are willing to pay cash. They buy the house, their kids lives in it and goes to school, renting out the other rooms. When the kid graduates, they sell or keep running it as remote slumlords I guess.
Maddening as we are looking for a house. We see a nice house, a few days later it's gone.
This poor young man:
was asked politely by the policeman....
to buy a sling to carry his AR-15 in public while intimidating black protesters.
Where's the crowdfunding for him?
Donald Trump brought back Bloom County.
For that we should all be grateful.
They should rezone all schools to mixed use (live/work) zoning.
No, clearly we need to up the ad budget on the lottery. That'll fix it.
Hmm, why would a military base be a gun free zone?
"I was just taking my sidearm out to stow it in my desk and Capt. JerkFace just HAPPENED to be in the way when it went off. I'm REALLY sorry about it. But it was an ACCIDENT."
The military has plenty of prior experience here.
Same reason you don't get to carry guns during a tour of the House of Representatives.
Is this what the Founding Fathers intended?
Which ones? Jefferson and Hamilton would have been Ashley Madison customers IMO. A few were pious prigs, but most I suspect would have had the attitude a little infidelity wasn't worth making a fuss over. Unless it was a political opponent of course.
Let's just imagine there might be a few careless police officers, attorneys, judges, etc. in that database. Yep.
The Impact Team members seem likely to commit suicide. Tragic really.
I have too tell you the story of the Reno cop who went into Welcome Aboard Travel where I worked
Is there a longer version of this tale?
It was a cigarette.
The issue is being ARGUMENTATIVE to his order to put it out.
Worse yet, she reached for her phone to attempt to record it. She could have died then and there.
Look on the bright side, she survived a few extra days in a comfy cell.
At least The Donald has something in common with most of the GOP leadership.
She is on the board of a media and internet company, why exactly?
We live in a meritocracy. Any form of deriding wealth as "unearned" is at the very least the ugliness of ENVY if not outright CLASS WARFARE, are you some kinda Pinko????
Not to worry, we already have a documentary about the mission plan to reignite a cooling sun:
Plus, it involves exploding BIGASS NOOKULAR BOMBS, so Republicans will have no problem coming up with the money for it.
"I can MAKE another kid, I can't make a BMW!"
