Overnight Open Thread (6-12-2012)

FYI the blog now has more aggressive anti-spam filter so if you've been banned by mistake (as opposed to ban-banned), email me your nic and ip address and I'll forward it onto pixy. Also the new registration thingy is still on schedule for Real Soon Now but just remember that we're working on ewok-time here.

Also some of the intrepid moron-types discovered that the Yahoo group has a chat function so go knock yourselves out. Just don't get the blog in trouble or do anything that makes a three-letter agency take an interest in us.

The Suckiness of America

Yeah we're racist, dog-eat-dog capitalists who allow super-income inequality, don't have national healthcare or free universities, let people live in the streets and keep too many people in prison, bla bla bla. So we suck.

But...when you compare us to other first world countries on the OECD Better Life index, it turns out that all the other countries suck a lot more than we do.

On these kind of rankings I always suspect the US gets cheated in healthcare since the scoring is heavily weighted on how 'free' medical care is. But notice that you never hear about Americans going off to Canada or France or the UK in order to get better medical treatment.

Marine Week and Marine Derangement Syndrome at DU

So apparently it's Marine Week in Cleveland and everyone is pretty happy about this - well except for a writer at Democratic Underground who really doesn't like the Marines or anything they do.

"Trust us, children . . . using one of these to blow the beJAYsus out of sovereign nations that never threatened one American citizen is a noble and just sacrifice your country's willing to make for your educations and futures."

So What Does Human Flesh Taste Like?

Like veal...maybe. The problem is that human flesh connoisseurs tend to be crazy and/or liars or very remote which makes their accounts unreliable.

Seabrook noted that, in raw form, human meat looks like beef, but slightly less red, with pale yellow fat. When roasted, the meat turned grayish, as would lamb or veal, and smelled like cooked beef. As for the taste, Seabrook wrote, "It was so nearly like good, fully developed veal that I think no person with a palate of ordinary, normal sensitiveness could distinguish it from veal."

That's Mrs. Sinclair Lewis to You

After Lewis Sinclair won the Nobel Prize in 1930 he was deluged with fan letter including one from a woman who offered to become his secretary, adding, "I'll do everything for you-and when I say everything I mean everything."

His wife, Dorothy, responded to the offer this way:

My dear Miss:

My husband already has a stenographer who handles his work for him. And, as for "everything," I take care of that myself-and when I say everything I mean everything.

Dorothy Thompson

How to Bet on Sports Online

The current legality of betting online for Americans is somewhat murky, but here's how it works. Back a few years ago I did a lot of betting on baseball. I probably couldn't have made a living off of it but I did make enough money to make it worthwhile. Hockey is another sport that has lots of good wagering potential.

10 I'm very happy about Marine week in Cleveland, but it makes sense that there are some idiots out there who don't like it. I remember attending an Air Show in Cleveland and there some peaceniks outside protesting. I simply laughed in their faces and walked on. My husband stopped to talk to someone who had a sign saying something about God hating war. My husband pointed out the whole turning plowshares in swords thing. Don't think husband really made an impact, though.

But, I almost threw the book across the room last night when the chapter about an Indonesian object started with "When a young Barack Obama arrived in Indonesia he was probably amazed to see..."

WTF?? Why, what purpose on God's green earth did the director of the British Museum have in including Barack Obama's name? None, it has no place in this type of history book. Asshole.

The world’s second biggest hamburger chain on Thursday is launching several pork, beef and chicken sandwiches as limited time offers. And for a sweet ending, the company is also offering a bacon sundae — vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon — that started in Nashville, Tenn. earlier this year.

They're just hypocrites about everything. They're bankrupt and think they're great with money, they call us warmongers when they supply more arms to terror regimes, they think they're enlightened and they're shallow halfwits, they blather about how old their nations are yet they ignore their own history.

About the only thing the third world and I have in common is contempt of Europe.

Also, Europe is just now running out of the wealth they stole from everyone else for hundreds of years. Not that most of their "victims" were doing anything with it, but it's sick history nonetheless.

The second season of that series (itself a re-imagining), was *such* a disaster that no one wanted to touch it. They tried to move from Camp to Serious and failed so *utterly* that it sent shock waves carrying loser-dust through the industry.

It would be hard to do it after the marginal success of BSG, but we do kind of have a SF vacuum in TV right now. It could be done right, maybe.

Basically it would have to include serious vetting of writers. If they had some Stargate writers it could work.

-------------------------They use their own little definition - "cannibalism" means eating humans for nutrition, whereas "anthrophagy" means eating them for fun and profit other than the protein, I think. Cute little twist on the English language, almost as cute as the wikipedia article I read recently that, in a discussion about the fate of captives taken by Native Americans,was making a distinction between torturing captives to death (nonexistant, evidently) and ritual execution of prisoners (which involved torturing them to death). Evidently it was mistake for Europeans call the practice of ritually burning and dismembering a prisoner by inches over several days as "torture."

I am not that young, but I was lied to all through school. I had to re-learn history on my own.

I still resent all the lies and the wasted time, and how much I had to fight to get out of that (long string of profanity deleted) system.

So, not a new problem. We have to do what we can to preserve actual history because most of the West has fallen into the same trap as the Russians did. Academics and bureaucrats are actually trying to run their systems like the Soviets did, and damn the laws.

It's sickening, and IMHO all of them should be defunded immediately. We'd be better off even in the mad scramble to replace all that crap in the private sector, *even* in a depression.

I worked for a very large French company for many years, and then our small part was sold to another company that was by law a European company, but is more oriented to the US. The CEO of our company is from another European country, but constantly makes fun of the French when he is in the US. He speaks flawless English and his impersonations of French dialect are hilarious.

We aren't the only ones that enjoy making fun of the French.

Not uncommon for people writing
this kind of chex-mix o' history to attempt writing intros tying in a more current reference, as a kind of populist "hook." And what else are you going to think off the top of your head for Indonesia? "The Year of Living Dangerously?"

135 (Newser) – President Obama, crappy hoops player? We've mostly assumed he's good—biographer Jodi Kantor and NBA stars have said so—but an upcoming biography by David Maraniss begs to differ, Politico reports. As a prep school student in Hawaii, Obama made the team "more because of his intense passion for the game—his will—than anything else," writes Maraniss in Barack Obama: The Story. "The reality was that Barry, as skilled and intelligent a player as he was, could not stand out in this group."

"Decades later, a story emerged that his nickname was Barry O’Bomber, playing off his last name and a propensity to fire away from long range, but few team members recalled that nickname." A former alum recalls that Obama "loved basketball so much, I think a lot of things have been blown out of proportion." One apparent weakness: his jump. "In fact, [coach Chris] McLachlin coined a phrase for the phenomenon: Barry Obama, famous for his no-jump jump shot!" See more at the

Howard Zinn was a commie, and there is no doubt about that. It made me mad every time he had to read parts of that book and write some essay about it.

It was a teachable moment (that year), and ultimately his history teacher came off as a buffoon, but that sort of nonsense has an effect on a kid's pysche.

We're now struggling as a culture (largely without knowing it) to find a way to retain those virtues and shed the rent-seekers, thugs and leeches who have made "taking advantage of the virtues of others" not just a lifestyle, but a parasitic culture that threatens to kill its host.

When my somewhat prim friend asked me if I was worried about my husband (who is an OB/GYN) seeing all of those hooters, I told her no, he sees hooters all the time...hooters and COOTERS! She about fell out of her chair, and my husband was aghast!

Posted by: indigo child at June 12, 2012 10:53 PM (xXhWA)

211 I heard a bit of the Sean Hannity show on my car radio today. He had a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican started out by saying the economy is a total meltdown disaster, and Obama has done nothing that fixed it but has run up a staggering load of debt. The Democrat started to say that right now, 401-K plans have recovered and are doing fine, which means people are better off than they might think.

Then Sean Hannity rudely broke in and interrupted the Hell out of the Democrat guest, and I switched to FM and listened to some rock music. Even though Hannity was right, I hate listening to that sort of rudeness.

So, one of the tricks of liberal argument: find some corner case that proves your point or at least sounds good, and insist passionately that this is the only part of the whole that really matters. Okay, the recovery is terrible, but 401-K plans are okay and that is what really matters.

Hannity didn't let his Democrat guest move the goal posts like that. (But he didn't let the man get a word in edgewise either.)

It's the same thing when people "prove" that trickle-down economics during Reagan's time as President didn't work. Find some metric, like how rich the rich people were, and show that the rich got a lot richer than the poor did. Even if the poor got richer, talk about some corner case instead.

Bonus points if you can ambush someone... what, you didn't come to this talk show with the numbers about this corner case all pre-memorized?

221 If you're thinking about betting sports read Lay the Favorite: A Memoir of Gambling. It's short and reasonably interesting. It's the story of a young, smart woman becoming the assistant to a bookie who ends up moving offshore and opening his own site. So it's about the 'other side' of the online sports betting world.

My view is simple: the lines are too good to be beaten consistently (the bigger the sport, the more money, the better the lines i.e. NFL lines can't be beaten consistently, period). You can win only if you win and get out. So if you're great at walking away from a table game when you're up, you might be able to do this. But most can't. One telling moment in the book is when the bookie - a renowned sports handicapper considered one of the best in the world at hockey - has to depart the island to go back to Long Island in order to get re-capitalized. Yeah, even this guy that is way smarter at this than you'll ever be, even he bottoms out.

If you can afford it, great. If you expect that the money is on a one way trip you might even have fun. If you expect, instead, to clean out the book with your special insights on sports - walk away. If you think you're going to win with a system - run away. Books love bettors with systems.

BTW, Buck Rogers is actually pretty dark when you look at the materiel. In the comics America is occupied and the inhabitants are reduced to gangs living in the woods, while the TV series had Earth devastated by a nuclear war and reduced mostly to radioactive wastelands filled with mutants.

It's weird, I liked the last few seasons (well 9 and 10) of SG-1 the *second* time I saw them.

And with Atlantis, you have to get past the fact that none of the actors were likable or had any chemistry with each other. Intense boredom helps.

But the writing got better.

I *almost* wonder if I should give Voyager a second chance, I was *so* turned off.

Nah, probably not.

274 #241

There are new comic series from publisher Dynamite, The Bionic Man and The Bionic Woman ('The Six Million Dollar Man' name is tied up and couldn't be used.) being scripted by Kevin Smith. He put a lot of thought into what made sense and what didn't int he original TV shows and what limitations were no longer a factor.

At one point in an early issue it is remarked that the cost of the project to rebuild Steve Austin is running about $6 Million a DAY. Also, he loses the intact left arm because it leaves him dangerously unbalanced, with a framework running throughout his body to hold it all together rather than expect him to apply full power through an arm attached to mere flesh.

The Bionic Woman spinoff started more recently and gave her some added abilities in keeping with the more spy-oriented theme.

277 My view is simple: the lines are too good to be beaten consistently
(the bigger the sport, the more money, the better the lines i.e. NFL
lines can't be beaten consistently, period).

Partially correct. Closing widely available lines are generally unbeatable. However, lines open and then move as the market drives them to their efficient point. It's the market that is doing a good job predicting the outcome, not the bookie. The key is to bet either 1) rogue lines - the market has moved to Lions -3, but you can get Lions -2.5 2) betting the lines before they settle at the efficient point.

Also, keep in mind that its a myth that books try to balance action. They frequently shade lines to take advantage of squares (obviously while trying to stay within risk mgmt tolerances). The classic case is "public teams" - teams like the Cowboys and the Yanks are so popular that books know they can shade those lines and the fanboys will still bet their team. Sharps will take advantage of books who shade too much. Also, local bookies tend to be a joke - very easily exploitable. Niche sports and prop bets are also frequently beatable with a little database work and some statistical training.

I've made my living betting sports for 5+ years and my biggest problem is finding books to take my action. Many of my accounts are in friends' names because I've been cut off. There is lots of volatility so emotional control, an understanding of stats, and sufficient cash reserves are necessary in order to keep from self-destructing.

285 Oh yeah, that's another peeve for the day: Obama-the-President says that we should cut him some slack because of ATMs, the tsunami, money troubles in Europe, and his inheriting of a bad economy from Bush 39 short months ago. But Obama-the-candidate had no problem blaming the economy on Bush, and is still doing so; it seems that Bush was fully and personally responsible for the whole economy, and we shouldn't cut Bush any slack about it. That's different.

I hate double standards. Self-serving double standards are even worse.

Bush had a major bubble collapse (not something he could control), high gas prices (not sure what Bush could have done... the liberals claim that the wars in the Middle East were "blood for oil" but they also blamed Bush for not keeping gas prices down), and Bush started his first term with 9/11 and an immediate economic downturn that went on for a long time.

Oh, and ATMs. Bush had to suffer under the yoke and lash of the ATMs just as much as Obama.

J. Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5 made a comment in the 90's about being glad Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer's, or something along those lines.



My 15 yo brother started mocking him as a horrible writer, saying he
stole B5 ideas from DS9. They went back and forth for a while, it was hilarious. Straczynski, after losing the
battle of wits, finally blocked my brother from responding to his
posts.

Alinskyite communists who want to cause economic collapse form Community Organizing groups like ACORN.

Community organizing groups try to undermine financial system to cause collapse.

Banks nearly collapse because of policies and lawsuits related to that.

But that doesn't prove anything.

Just like Holder & Co said ahead of time they wanted to use guns going to Mexico to try to get more control here, then they deliberately sent guns to Mexican narco-terrorists, then they tried to use their own crimes to justify more restrictions on us - but that doesn't prove anything.

News flash, nothing proves anything anymore, unless you are politically powerless.

How anyone can claim to be a tech guru who has never been able to figure that out is a mystery. We had a forum in the mid-90s which managed it. AOSHQ moves up to the '90s!

Also automatic parsing of paragraphs instead of clumping everything in one giant block is pretty basic tech that pixy never mastered.

Q, 18th century civilian or a soldier without a (tricorne) hat. Any chance the AWI Mel Gibson flick started with a Q in British and/or Euro release? Or an Alamo or an American irregular in the Mexican War flick as it looks like he's got a hair queue (ponytail).

The thing about Stargate, is that if they hadn't screwed up the Unnamable Sequel, it would still be going on today. There is almost no way to run out of story possibilities in a setting like that.

It's more open-ended than Star Wars, which they only periodically slow down on because they haven't even *tried* on TV (partly because it's perceived as too "epic" for a TV show).

Yeah, it had bad eps and slow times. They do need a restart (NOT a re-make or re-imagining, just all-new cast and fresh start), maybe just set in the very near future.

Part of the reason SG-1 ended is it just got too expensive. I remember them trying to get the cast down in price, and some of the cast even wanted to, but they had arcane Entertainment Industry rules to follow.

430 I love poached eggs, have several varieties of doohickeys to assist me, and still can't do it right

Forget the doohickeys and the space age miricale wonder devices.

Take some water, put it in a shallow sauce pan. put in enough to cover your average sized egg and then a little more. Bring it to a boil, then turn the temp down to low and wait for the water to stop boiling. Give it a quick stir or two so the water temp is even throughout.

Now I don't use vinegar myself, but if you want to drop in a teaspoon or so of vinegar and give it a good stir it will help the egg whites from separating when you add the eggs.

Crack your egg into a small bowl. Take the bowl and holding it just above the surface of your water pour the egg into the hot water.

The egg white will start fanning out, don't panic. Take spoon and gently nudge it back in toward the yolk until it's firm enough to stay there on it's own.

If your worried about this part, well find a ring from an old mason jar and put it in your pan, then drop the egg into it. The white will only spread out as far as the mason jar ring and you won't need to worry about pushing back with the spoon.

Wait till the whites are nice and done, I use a large plastic slotted spoon to take them out of the pan. Bam, perfect poached eggs, every time.

them to completion in the pan. He got fired for doing it (it's a

I wish I could remember which chef it was, but what you mentioned was one of the things he looked for.

He looked for them to be overcooked, undercooked, and salted prematurely and, IIRC, not over-beaten before cooking.

440 Re: SGU

When the show's makers start blaming the audience for sabotaging the show, it is *long past* over.

SGU's biggest mistake, like BSG's, was the title.

People look down on fast food, but the reason it's so popular is it provides fans (I mean customers) with a relatively consistent experience.

SGU didn't do that for Stargate fans. It was very different. Some liked it, a lot didn't.

Lesson they will NEVER learn, if you want to make a new kind of show, start a new franchise. Don't recycle an old on and then piss on the old fans.

490 (Mostly) Good news from Nevada!

In the primary, far more Republicans voted in the senate primary then Dems. Even in Clark County (normally a Dem stronghold with ~70% of the state's population), had more Republicans vote the Dems, with Sen. Heller getting more people voting for him than Rep. Berkley (the first Auton-American Congresswoman).

This is important since traditionally, the rurals and the outlying parts of Clark County balanced out the Democratic central Las Vegas area. This left Washoe county (where Reno is), as the deciding county. No one has won statewide in Nevada without winning Washoes since 1998 (and even then the vote difference was

The primary vote is consistant with the special election for NV01 last year which saw Washoe go heavy GOP, and Clark County giving the GOP near parity with Dems in actual voted. The GOP turnout was ~45% higher then Dems in Clark County - which makes sense since Dem registration has been slashed by half since 2008 due in large part to "inactive voters" being removed from the rolls.

The vote totals were also good for Rep. Joe Heck, who is running against NV assembly speaker Oceguera.

In other news, former GOP Lt. Gov. Hammargren is doing well in his election to the Board of Regents (the public universities are run by an elected state board).

It also looks like Danny Tarkanian (son of the UNLV NCAA winning coach) will be the GOP nominee against the favored Dem candidate Horsford (the state Senate leader for the Dems).

The only really bad election was in a Dem primary where a pro-gun anti-transvestite sitting Senator was defeated by a black lesbian reverend. There is no Republican and only an Independent American Party candidate (it's a party affiliate with the Constiutiontion party).

The GOP also has a shot at the state board of education.

On a side note, there was a special primary election for a state Senate seat of a hot-looking GOPer who was caught commintting adultry with a golfer. The GOPer who won is also a smokin' hottie.

That being that... Good night everyone!

I kept getting "it's a little thing"; "he's in the ICU"; "don't know what happened"; "this sort of thing looks bad".....and, finally, just said "screw it" and flew out there on a redeye. On the morning I arrived at the ICU, my grandmother called them from Emergency downstairs to say she'd be missing her regular morning visit.......whereupon the clouds parted, a light shined down from above, and I knew I had Done The Right Thing.

At one point she says that Crassus did not gather intelligence. In the next sentence she says that he spent a year gathering intelligence. The sentence after that she says his problem was he did not gather intelligence.

510 SGU didn't do that for Stargate fans. It was very different.

Too much touchy/feeley/internal political, not enough checking out and exploring the cool Ancient starship they just happened to be freaking STUCK ON. Hello? Your set IS the fucking story arc, ride it hard. Its big, its interesting, its cool. The writers must have been on crack to take the show in the directions they did. Atlantis made the same mistake of not exploiting the wonders of the city itself more. There had to be a hundred episodes worth of "wow" that never were written because some pinhead writers couldn't imagine what might be behind a hundred thousand or more unopened door knobs, instead opting to flog the Wraith (really just a slightly more nasty Ga'ould surrogate) and replicator horses again.

The ambiance seemed like they were trying to rip off BSG, which was a mistake from day-1.

The big problem with exploring either of the shows' environment is introducing new maguffins to complicate future stories. You end up with the constant "but why didn't they use the thingy from Episode X?" syndrome that in turn means tons of time given over to the characters asking and answering the question themselves.

Heck, on SGU it wasn't clear they even got around to inventorying all of the crates in the area they held. I expected one of them to contain a First Contact kit to teach Ancient to anyone vaguely humanoid and another to be the complete schematics and operating guide for the ship. Plus a source listing of the BIOS.

See if you can find "Torment of Tantalus," "Window of Opportunity," and "In The Serpent's Grasp 1&2" (end of season one and beginning of season 2) to watch online.

They're fairly representative and standalone, and good episodes.

I think the series is very good, but there are several episodes I wish I'd missed. Actually not bad out of over 200 episodes. Over 300 including Atlantis, whcih is not as good but not a bad time-waster.

552 BSG's ending wasn't just bad, it was clumsy, poorly written, even the makeup and CG weren't as good.

Endings are hard. They're harder if you're lazy. They're even harder if you're lazy and stupid.

Yes, I could have done it better. I ain't saying I could produce a series, no, way beyond me. But I can write a plot that doesn't suck (at least, on a good day).

And I can at least *edit* bad dialogue.

Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at June 13, 2012 03:52 AM (bxiXv)

553 Endings are the hardest part of fiction. Throwing out all sorts of gosh wow mysterious nonsense is all well and good until it has to come together and make sense.

I've gotten pretty disgusted in recent years with this pattern. Half the anime coming out of Japan these days is rife with it. Here, we get stuff like Lost and BSG.

One of the reasons Fullmetal Alchemist is head and shoulders above most anime and even most fantasy series in general is the author had a real end in mind that tied up the major threads and delivered a sense of completion. There could be more stories in this world but the one we needed to know in total was delivered.

I don't know that a lot of Japanese writers even try.

I try to preface my invective with "endings are hard," but I am shocked with what comes out, on TV, at the theater, and in games, that *SOMEONE* should have looked at early on and said, "wait, this is crap."

I mean, a lot of them can be fixed (and some are, by people at home on their PCs putting it on YT), and it's not always that hard.

Sometimes it's hard to figure out how to fix something, like Skyline or, say Alien 4 (Resurrection).

Sometimes you can tell people ran out of time or money, like the ME3 game ending or the Forgotten.

A lot of people mention Sunshine, I don't even think the ending was the problem with that one, it was the middle.

One of the things you run into is that for every terrible ending, there's *someone* who liked it. Which is why proofreading is so vital, several voices, not to "poll-test" but to just let you know when you're a "1%er" when it comes to liking an idea.

I know I ranted about the Mass Effect 3 ending here, but one of the key things is the sheer *volume* of analysis that went into critiquing that (and the utter corruption of the "review industry"). It's as close as you can get to an "objectively bad ending," and I think it will be a model, at least for marketers, if not writers.

There was a very interesting discussion involving a literature professor on the forums (it may still be going on, the opening "bad ending" thread there had like 100,000 comments last time I looked).

You could actually see the death spiral happening in the storytelling... you can kind of see what they were trying to do (which would have been unpopular enough), at least enough to know they were doing it badly.

It got renewed through season 25, right? Good gravy...well more than half of this series is a giant turd. It's sad that this show can be thought of as one of the best American animations as well as one of the worst.

their view of fairness is they get to own all of their own life and part of yours, too. slavers never change, they just change their sales pitch. they wouldn't know 'fair' if it jumped out their chest alien-style.

589 just thinking about their rulebook - ifvthe goal is to raise people out of poverty then capitalism is the best solution

if its fairness then making everyone rich is fair

Posted by: tehdave at June 13, 2012 05:40 AM (nsV+W)

590 do they see themselves as slavers -maybe a robin hood thing?

Posted by: tehdave at June 13, 2012 05:42 AM (nsV+W)

591 the stat that comes out so often is the disparity between the poor and the rich--
this is their rhetoric

Boiled down into the most useless and meaningless cliche imagined, thank you.

The value is blind hatred of individual initiative and success. One guy does fuck all, lives like a lump and produces and achieves nothing. One guy busts his ass and uses his brain, gets something. Split the difference? Fuck that!

593 tehdave - give Bebop another chance. Try episode five, "Ballad of Fallen Angels" - the finale of that is something that John Wu would envy. Or check out "Waltz for Venus," or "Sympathy for the Devil" and see if it doesn't win you over.

Of course, I got a kick out of Big O, so your mileage may vary.

I really don't give a flying shit how they lie to themselves. Your life is made up of the hours, minutes, and seconds between your birth and your death. Either you own the time of your life or someone else does. People who will not support the concept that each person should own the time of their life are slavers at heart.
I have zero interest in the mental gyrations they put themselves through to justify their shit.

Posted by: jc at June 13, 2012 05:54 AM (ufJKx)

598 obviously they dont have much of a rule book but one can be inferred from the juxtaposition of condemned conservative values with those values attributed by the media to the left

if you need to achieve 50% +1 to get power, why wouldn't you try to get the voting block of the unfocused, lazy, greedy, and/or stupid? Best bet on planet earth. Babies are born that way every time and have to be trained to be anything different.

run a simple test. Would you support a policy whether it was being done 'by you,' 'for you,' or 'to you?' If yes, that individual policy could be deemed to represent someone's values. If no, then it is just more bullshit with a sales pitch.
Let's take every leftist value and change it from done 'by them' or 'for them' to 'done to them' and see for yourself. I am pretty sure I know how it will come out.

That is what they say, but not what they do. The government accepts any donation they want to make. They could pay their up to their entire net worth in taxes right now if they were not lying about this topic.
Since they are are not doing what they say, I will remain skeptical about this smokescreen.

==
slavers never change, they just change their sales pitch.



Once people realize they are mortal, they understand
they cannot get more time unless they get it from other people. Slavery
is the process of extending your enjoyable time by forcing someone else
to do your drudgery. We will never be rid of the desire of people to have slaves.
Here is the wiki (apologize, but it is close enough for this discussion) timeline for abolition movements worldwide. http://tinyurl.com/ytc6cm
Now, if you are curious, look up the dates of the Communist Manifesto, totalitarianism, fascism, socialism, etc, etc, etc. and compare it to the abolition timeline. Every time slavery is suppressed, a new sales pitch arises to try to convince people that they should not have the title to the time of their own life.

620 The Texas Republican primary of 2012 was not like the primary of 1980. Enthusiasm to fire the SCOAMT, as great as it is, did not produce the long lines at the Republican table that I saw in 1980. Don't think it's going to be a Regan landslide.

624 Somebody asked what happened to Lindsay Wagner since her "The Bionic Woman" days.

Thirty-five years happened, I guess.

She and Lynda still look classy, though. Just compare them, Laura Bush, and -- as somebody else mentioned -- Morgan Fairchild to our current, boob-belt-wearing FLOTUS. The difference will instantly be apparent to the meanest intelligence.

I'm afraid of the medicinal route. We have a pro coming in tomorrow to do a treatment that involves olive oil, whatever the hell that will do.

the oil smothers and kills the adult lice. wash it out with dawn dish soap and rinse with vinegar. leave the vinegar on the hair for at least an hour. wash and condition hair with a coconut oil shampoo and conditioner. comb out the nits on a daily basis and voila' head lice problem over. keep using the coconut shampoo and conditioner and you shouldn't (fingers crossed) have the problem again.
