Granite is igneous, slate is sedimentary. Why is it so difficult for people to grasp that distinction?posted @ Friday, December 13, 2013 - 00:01
You're right, they mean well,

Jim, don't make this mistake!
If she's saying in her "little" voice that all she wants is a bicycle, she is trying to test you; what she really wants is a used 500SEL Mercedes.
Just buy it and thank me later.

If Colorado had passed a law that that broke the first amendment it would be challenged and overturned. The first amendment does not give you the right to yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater. Nor does it give you the right, at least in the state of Colorado, to discriminate against anyone just based on the fact that you don't like how they live.
Okay, now how do you figure that the Constitution is being made worthless?posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 15:50
Colorado law specifically forbids discrimination against customers based on sexual orientation. If you open a business, you must comply with the law. If I claim that I'm a Rastafarian and walk around on College Square smoking marijuana, do you think I should be exempted from arrest?
I don't know if Oregon law forbids discrimination on the basis of being a police officer or not, if it does, the officer would have a case and he would prevail in the courtroom. Seems to me that he wasn't inclined to do so, though.
Why do you spend so much of your time looking for things to be offended by? Afflictive emotions suck the quality out of life.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 14:05

@rzimdars: There is absolutely no difference in the extremism, the one-sidedness, or even the ultimate goal of either party.
To claim your party is different from the other one is to ignore the beam in your own eye.
At this point in history, there is a huge difference in culpability between the two parties. Neither party is free of fault, but one party has come unhinged due to its extreme and irrational hatred of the duly elected president.
Your denials of that fact change nothing.posted @ Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 10:13
I had a werewolf costume for Halloween a couple of years ago when our cats were kittens. It consisted of an over-the-head mask and gloves that were like hairy werewolf paws. When I wore it out of the bedroom and...well, we found the second cat two days later in the tiny space beneath a secretary.
To this day both cats are very reluctant to go in our bedroom.posted @ Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 09:11
We have two cats. We are very loyal to them; it's in the contract according to them. We all get along great.
My wife feels they're one of the cheapest ways you can decorate a room.
If we woke up tomorrow and found ourselves one-third our regular size, I think they would probably eat us. That's just cats.posted @ Monday, December 9, 2013 - 21:58
Actually, I agree with her Digdug. Cats don't need to be loyal to anything or anyone other than themselves.

Dogs are not more loyal to liberals.
Okay, I might have overreached with that one.
Cats are though.posted @ Monday, December 9, 2013 - 14:40
The liberals get all the breaks. They own all the media, they get all the hot girls, the referees cheat for them if they can determine that the majority on any team consists of liberals. Liberals get all the stock tips, they are catered to by the Pope, Hollywood makes all the entertainment just for them.
Grocers save the best cuts of meat for liberals, between 97 and 98 per cent of climate scientists lie for them. Airline pilots never point out the cool stuff in flight unless they are pretty sure most of the passengers are liberal.
Doctors prefer to save the lives of liberals over conservatives by a margin of 9-to1. Dogs are more loyal to liberals, phone companies give better coverage to liberal cell phone owners.

For the life of me, I cannot figure where all the AthensTalks posters have gone.
What else could anyone possibly find to do that is more edifying than listening in on the extreme right-wing circle-jerk that goes on here day after day?
That Robyn was a genius with that plus/minus thing. I sure hope people don't abuse that feature to bully someone like E.J. or gang up on anyone with a countervailing opinion. Jim, I hope you compensated that boy accordingly.
I hate it, but I absolutely have to stop putting off rearranging my sock drawer.

Win Abbe is/was a decent man. He was my wife's landlord when we met over 25 years ago; he was very demanding but also kept his properties and his side of the bargain up. His wife was/is a jewel of a woman who lived in Sandersville five days a week so she could teach there.
Win had/has some issues, largely beyond his control. I hope he's doing okay.posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 17:42
