    Call it Crazy says

    Hmmm... Isn't SHE suppose to be in control of her own vehicle at ALL
    times??


    So, it's Bundy's fault SHE hit the cow?? Was Bundy in her car?


    I guess it's somebody else's fault when a person hits a tree, building,
    guardrail, another car, cat, dog, squirrel or runs off the road?? But a cow,
    blame Bundy!!

    It is the law. if not open range, you don't want cows /horses etc out there in numbers in freeways. There are areas in the western states that are open range, where cows roam free and get priority-it is the responsibility of motorists to watch out and beware of cows.

    But Bundy is the supreme example of welfare gone wild. Bum who lives of state's land . I guess I can go and build a house in national forest land and if somebody gets hurt there-threaten to sue them??

    yes, but nice to have your genes. As I grow, see me , my nephews and nieces etc, I see a lot of similiarities and characteristics that have passed on from the odler generations-so really fascinating to watch that.



    I think it is more important for my descendants to share my values. Genetics is a bit superficial.

    Not just genes. because even temeperament , it is actually surprising to see how much my niece's temperament matches my dearly departed grandma. Another of my nephew likes the same food that my uncle used to love. Just surprising to watch these little things and who knew these things could be passed down??/p>

    Now, maybe realizing my own mortality, children seem something I want to experience.


    Adoption is always a possibility.

    yes, but nice to have your genes. As I grow, see me , my nephews and nieces etc, I see a lot of similiarities and characteristics that have passed on from the odler generations-so really fascinating to watch that.

    Children can be pain-at least if they are yours-you can grit your teeth and bear it through the bad times!!!

    Traditional relationships are becoming pointless. Getting married and having children is a very bad trade for most people. It is like paying a $100 commission and risking $10000 just to make $10.


    swebb says



    A lot of people find marriage to be very fulfilling, but many don't and end up trapped in a miserable situation.


    The mind is powerful. Once you are trapped, you will find a way to convince yourself of anything.

    it depends. I have done everything I wanted to do and then some. Now, maybe realizing my own mortality, children seem something I want to experience. Little babies , children and growing up. i was a rather difficult child in my teens for my parents and my mom would always curse me that I would have one just like me and then I would realize what I put her through !! So it is not some romantic feel good notion. Just realizing that we too are part of nature's seasons and come and go from this earth. Nowadays I would rather be alone than in parties and love nature more and more. i don't think i can live in a concrete jungle anymore. Children and family life seem to be a natural extension for me at least. There is not a single continent left for me to set foot on. Nothing more.

    But yes if you are going into it with the old ideas of family etc -it can be a terrible disappointment especially with current gubmnt laws.

    Go hit the campuses then. Mt. Holyoke??


    Those women, esp private all girls, are social climbers, looking for a banker or if they're loose, a gangbanger. That's partly why I'd lost interest in dating.

    Maybe your networth is very high. But after my years of fun and games and not settling down, I realized love too can vanish. Saw so many couples divorce, child supprot etc.. etc. When I started to look to settle down, one of the important criteria is that she be self sufficent-that is a paradox-a lot of the successful women I know are actually humble and nice. Also family was also important. In a way it was like the arranged marraige of yore in many countries-looking at my family, their family and looking at it from a practical viewpoint. We are not married yet, but getting there-but no hurry, between her job and parents, I would say she has a financial edge over me. very responsible person and love is love-but a far more matured version. It is nice thing to ease into as I get older.

  • On 16 Sep 2014 in Just show the damn ID. This was made for Dan., lostand confused said:

    So public servants with 100k salaries and lifetime pensions-who get to retire at 50- have nothing better to do than chase after a husband and wife in a mercedes. Damn-I need me one of these jobs.

  • On 16 Sep 2014 in I have a vagina , so should be paid as much as a dick law blocked by repubs, lostand confused said:

    marcus says

    So a small part of the difference is due to women being paid less for the exact same work. It seems to me that if republicans were smart they would go along with a law that ONLY applies and in very well defined terms to situations where a woman is paid less for the exact same work.

    And "exact same work" would invariably have to include experience, productivity, job reviews or evaluations (which are subjective in part) which would render the law mostly symbolic.

    But republicans are too politically stupid to do that.

    It is the lawyers-supported by dems-that I worry about. can you imagine the flood gate of lawsuits that would open up with this law. of course companies will have one more incentive to offshore. problem solved.

    Carolyn C says

    If it is true that most men outperform women represented by the pay differences then we would see evidence of this in the test scores and grades of college students. But I do not see evidence of men outperforming women in the colleges so I would think the outcome would be the same in the workforce.

    A company is going to pay the least amount of money it can get away with to retain its best talent. Deadweight will be carried along until they cannot. if you don't like what you are getting paid- negotiate for a raise or move. I have moved several times and still have one of my old companies call me to join them back. No thanks-feels good.

    mandating what a private company pays to its employees and what kind of employees you want to hire stifles innovation and turns us into a centrally planned economy. College scores have nothing to with success. Bill gates and Steve Jobs were both college dropouts. Theory and practical world are two separate skills. One of my earlier bosses who had 200 people report up to her was an arts major-yeah and a woman .

    By demanding rules for equal pay-women are saying they cannot compete in a level playing field ever , because men are superior and only when the gubmnt intervenes do they have a shot in hell of being equal. Which is not the case-I have met some very successful women who have made it on their own. This law is a disgrace to get votes and hopefully successful women see the stupidity of the dems and how they view them as little flowers who can never shine on their own.

    50 yrs before yes-women/minorities were legally prevented from doing it. We now had a VP woman candidate and a woman is now the frontrunner for the 2016 presidential candidate. There are self made billionaires like meg Whitman-so enough with this tripe. It is like the whole alimony movement-women fought for equality but want alimony and a share of any money the man made. Inr eturn they don't have to support the man in the lifestyle he was used to. As above-now successful women are having to pay alimony-enough.

    I just don't get this. men don't get paid equally. Why should women. Does this mean I am victim of discrimination, because I am not as successful as meg Whitman??

  • On 15 Sep 2014 in I never should have followed my dreams, lostand confused said:

    Rin says

    The problem is that much of R&D are vassals, against the corporate machinery

    So true. You can put your heart and soul into it and do a great job and a new CIO can come in and offshore your entire division. It really does not matter.

    I have chosen to live in a low cost state, where the competition for IT jobs is not as fierce as it is in CA. My mortgage will be paid off in few years and I should not have any debt. if the offshore bug bites again, then I am thinking of joining the flying consultant brigade-the monday to Thursday work routine. Hopefully it won't come to that, but I have even spent time abroad for work when things got tough, so ready for anything. just want to have no debt, so can be flexible.

    When I was younger I enjoyed life and have no regrets. Now am enjoying work and family . Implementing big projects is not a joke and is stimulating. just the people, the politics, the dynamics etc is fascinating-well at least for a few years. Lets see.

    In corporate America, everyone's got some Private Idaho.

    I'd put QA and release management (the clowns who maintain the make files) under that category.

    Hahahaha!!! You haven't worked in the manufacturing/pharma/food industries have you. Then you know the power of QA and Release management-LOL-the rest of us are just vassals!!

  • On 15 Sep 2014 in Bipartisanship helps make California a world leader in fighting climate change, lostand confused said:

    So it is not global warming anymore? Now I beleive in science , so wondering are there any publications and/or reasons as to why it has moved from global warming to climate change.

    Looks like some places are warm and dry, but up here in the midwest, last winter was one of the snowiest and coldest in a long while. It is mid september and already skirted near freezing -I shudder to think of February.

    While climate change is a nice catch phrase to include every possible combination that may occur without a subsequent change-can anyone link scientific papers to the same. I think this year arctic ice has reformed at record rates too?

    BTW, working for a hedge fund was not my childhood dream.

    It's necessary because in our society, real scientists and engineers, outside of let's say areas like the Navy Nuclear program, are corporate and academic America's b*tches.

    And I ain't no man's b*tch! I want the freedom to write screenplays, bone hoes, practice Martial Arts, and simply enjoy life.

    Yeah. Those of us who are successful have taken our lumps and grown up. When you are just a beginning adult, it is common to want to change the world etc. But then you grow up and realize the world is in constant flux-ever changing and you are here for a speck of time. Best to go with the world rather than be steamrolled by it. Now there are a few that become truly successful-but even for them life ain't a bed of roses.

    One thing I find is that if you are constantly looking for something-you never are happy. Now if you learn to accept reality and work with the present-life actually becomes pleasant. You are going to die one day anyways, so learn to enjoy the journey!

    Quigley says

    The success stories are made by people who work like angry bastards to achieve over and above what's considered reasonable, expected, or rational.

    Unless you marry someone like that and have a few kids with them. Just be married to him/her for 10 years or so, get alimony for life and have him/her maintain you in the lifestyle you were used to. Plus get a ton in child support. In Fl, there is something called good fortune child support-whereby if you get knocked up by a rich dude, you get more child support than is needed tor aise the child. The American dream.

  • On 13 Sep 2014 in Do the religious disown their gay children at higher rates??, lostand confused said:

    CaptainShuddup says

    She should ask for their forgiveness for smearing them over the Internet, and hope that they will one day speak to her again.

    Or if she isn't interested in ever speaking to them again, then what is her beef?

    What is to shame? They should be standing on street corners and say, Hey I am a Christian-if my child turns out to be a little different than what I expect them to be, I disown them and won't have the gall to tell them that I disowned them-instead I make my other child to do it. That is what my God and my religion stands for-come join my religion.

    That is no different than Jihadis stoning women to death for adultery. If that is what your God wants-I want no part of it.

    Now at least the dems don't use religion to thrust their views of alimony and unreasonable child support-they use the law and courts.

    I think religion, spirit, soul etc all give us some meaning. but when people use that to -oh well-I guess that is a centuries old debate and won't be settled now.

    Call it Crazy says

    You guys in CA have it easy... Take a look at my past tax history of my last house I sold (This was one of the reasons WHY I sold).

    Yeah same here in the mid west state I live in. Some folks end up paying the same as the mortgage in property taxes. Hmm I wonder weather we can have a CA style proposition system?? There is no way on earth CA politicians would have voted for a property tax such as prop 13.

    CaptainShuddup says

    They gave her everything, they expect grandchildren in return. Now I know
    that the new way we do things is just take one side into consideration and
    ignore everyone else's feelings. But there's nothing wrong with expecting your
    child to turn out a certain way.


    I'd like to hear the stories of Educated Liberal families disowning their
    kids who grow up and become Republicans or Rodeo Clowns.


    The parents aren't happy with the outcome, the kid is still free to be just
    as Gay as she ever was. I don't get what's the problem. There's millions of
    people everyday who have to go through life making their own way, without Mommy
    and Daddy paying for everything.


    What makes her story so special?


    Get a second job.

    She did, a second and a third and she survived and finished school without parents.

    I don't have kids, but getting close to being a dad soon. I cannot imagine disowning a kid and cutting them off just because he/she became gay and or a rodeo clown/secretary/whatever. Now if they become a serial killer/rapist.

    That is your flesh and blood and cannot imagine doing that to mine. But maybe that is because I grew up in a ,"family oriented" family . or maybe family values to me means a different thing. Being religious is supposed to mean you are supposed to be closer to God, more pious and have love in your heart-not a stone cold freak who can cast out your own child because of some stone age beliefs that was invented by men who rode donkeys. That is not being religious-even animals take care of their own better.

    Gay or whatever-that is your child. Good for the kid, she survived and made it-bad for the parents who were such cowards that they made the brother do the cutting of ties-what cowards. These freaks are what gives religion a bad name-just like the al queda nutters-unlike the Mother Theresas and others.
