Re: When will progressives learn? the minimum wage is not a good thing!

You people just don't see the genius at work here! Raising the "minimum wage" isn't intended to help poor folks achieve the American Dream. The real purpose is to make us healthier by destroying the fast food industry. Forcing progressive eating establishments like McDonald's to "pay a living wage"...

Re: When will progressives learn? the minimum wage is not a good thing!

Just wait until it happens to you, G H. When they raise min. to your pay and you don't get raises to compensate. Then the dumb *oops you said word #3 flipping burgers is making the same as you. Man I bet you squeal then.

Shooting In Self-Defense Is Illegal

Yes that's right, :? at least according to one author at the Huffington Post. Of course that's not really saying much of anything new for the HuffPo, but wait till you hear the authors reasoning. The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right fo...

$6.3 Billion in 1,308 Secretive EPA ‘Slush Funds’

Okay, I may be stretching it for this sub-forum since the money really doesn't come from our tax dollars, but it is still a matter of government extracting money from the population and not being accountable with it. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials have accumulated at least $6.3 bill...

This could burn me up (quite literally)

Lately I have been mocking NASA for all the cultural/societal engineering work they have been doing, which to me is akin to the Armed Forces being used to deliver "assistance" to needy people. Both may be good for Public Relations, but both are thus doing what they weren't created for. Here is some ...

Re: Rocket Babe: Ant Men

Well, it's not like I want Verna to lose what she has. That just wouldn't be fair to her or Randy. :cry: As for Blondie, well let's just say that the images that went through my head of Lieutenant Ono in the Nephalim outfit would get me banned from my own forum. ;) :o :shock: :mrgreen: If she isn't ...

Re: Reup, reup your crazzzy, reup, reup your outta yur mind.

I bet it languishes in committee until November and then it will be allowed to die. Nope, the committee has already approved it. It is an amendment to the proposed fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Now of course it wouldn't be the first time the tail wagged the dog and an amendment ca...

Re: Rocket Babe: Ant Men

I'm finally up to speed on the Rocket Babe having finished the first two books, and just started reading book three, Ant Men. All right, let's get this out in the open right now, I am terribly disheartened :cry:. You see, at the end of book two, Fallen Angel, Rocket gets married to Randall. BTW, for...

Re: Cruz & Fiorina for prez and vice

In the case of Bobby Knight and Iron Mike, I'm sure anyone would acknowledge support from them, but just because someone less than desirable endorses you doesn't mean that you agree with them. If I agree with GH that butylrate dope is a great paint, doesn't mean I agree his tiolet pranks are all the...
