    @ OldOllie
    What if some big corporations were to change their choice of business entity to limited partnerships?
    I would get some kicks from Leftists having to understand different business entities — but that’s just me: I can be very easily amused.

    To use terminology from the 1960s:
    “Right on, kid! Speak truth to power!”

    This story makes me recall fondly the inner and outer beauty of Helen Thomas — NOT!

    I would be initially inclined to consider it “ironic” that a social wouldn’t know the Pledge — considering that it was written by a socialist. However, the Pledge has been tarnished over the past 50+ years in the eyes of the Socialists (probably something to do with the “One Nation Under God” part).

    “Progressives and the truth are oxymorons”
    Well, sometimes they slip up and utter the truth (as the story describes) — but they quickly try to cover up the truth with the usual deluge of lies.

    Exactly, Kupo — that is precisely the sort of assumption (common sense, in light of the person writing the document, using the ordinary meanings of the words they used) that is made in the interpreting wills, contracts, statutes and (dare I say?) Constitutions.

    LOL: “The poll says” — reminds me of “Family Feud”: “Survey Says . . . “

    @ Kupo
    First of all (and most importantly for this matter), I agree with you as regards the unlikelihood that killing the dog was the woman’s testamentary intent. Nothing in the story would lead me to that conclusion. Frankly, it just looks like the probate attorney wants to close probate as quickly as possible.
    If, however, that WAS actually her intent (and, again, I doubt it — who wants THAT to be part of their legacy?), then that is her right (unless state law says otherwise). Yes: “Just because something is A right does not make it RIGHT.” But just because you don’t like that exercise of the right (and you don’t want to “encourage” that conduct) does not mean that the law can be ignored. Believe me, I have seen far too many judges chose to ignore the law because they did not like the outcome if the law was observed. That is the rule of men instead of the rule of law. It’s not a good thing — worse, even, than killing a dog to satisfy the terms of a cruel woman’s will (and, yet again, I don’t accept that this woman’s will actually made any such provision)

    Simple: just don’t bury her ashes until the dog has passed from natural causes and been cremated.
    How can anyone think that the woman wanted the dog to be killed so that her wishes could be met as soon as possible?

    Racial identity is inherently more mutable than a person’s sex — so look for this sort of thing coming to a courtroom near you.

    You are with Beck on that one:
    “The country’s freedoms started to slip away 100 years before 2014, but Beck said 2014 was a “tipping point.” “

    Hey, Gotz. Doing well, thanks.
    Sorry that I don’t really recall the earlier thread too well.
    I am often wrong on many things — but at least I’m not one of those “Often in error, never in doubt” guys.
    What you set forth fits my understanding of Islam, which I summarize as “Arabian paganism with a veneer of Gnostic Christianity” (Mohammed’s uncle was a Gnostic Christian hermit).

    “To be fair though being a liberal once meant being a libertarian in America too”
    Now you’ve got it, DLV: American Progressives hijacked the label “liberal” after they had shown how dangerous and anti-American Progressives are.

    Hi diddly-ho, Ned!
    The important thing to remember is to call ANYONE who doesn’t agree with you (and agree with you 100%) a “Troll” — that always furthers the discussion! ;D

    Just 10 years ago, this would be an off-color comedy piece.

    Australia is a nation-sized “gun free zone” — and it works as well as could be expected.

    Yeah — I read the headline and thought “Oh, great — and I was upbeat about Scott Walker in 2016″
    After reading the story it looks like more evidence of mainstream media fearing Walker in 2016.
