    Zipit you mean “Even Ross Perot would have defeated Klinton if it weren’t for that Bob (on the) Dole mistake.”

    Yeah, actually, the way I just put it is actually supported by the facts on the grund at te time. Dole was a put-up job by the ProgRinos to keep Klinton in power. Now if they had of run wit an ACTUAL CONSERVATIVE who respected the CONSTITUTION and lost, you would have a case that Ross took votes away from Dole and paved the way for Klinton. Polling at the time clearly showed Dole siphoning cnservative votes away from Perot. Those true consevative constitutionalists who voted for Perot would have NEVER voted for Dole in any case. The would have stayed home AGAIN like they always do.

    Perhaps the libertarians can righfully claim that Perot stole votes from them; entirely plausible. But a Perot voter voting for Dole? YGBFSM homes.

    Didn’t a lawyer for an X-Ray technician (sponsored by the natural resources defense council) try to sue to get the lead removed from thlead aprons used in her work because the lead would hurt her unborn child? I thnk th judge tossed that one out. Same principle. Someone got hurt using a legal safety device illegally, so we sue the mfgr of the safety equipment.

    Yeah this lawsuit deserves the Golden Face palm of the year award.

    How quickly can we countersue BY NAME the plaintiffs and their attorneys? They are attempting to prevent a life saving technology used thousands of times a year to protect innocent lives.

    Analogy time: air bags. So thousands of lives are saved every year. Someone gets in a really obnoxious head-on and dies. So the estate sues General Motors, the air bag comapnies, the NHTSA (for requiring their use), etc. etc.

    Air bags get removed from tthe market- or are made less effective (changing the speed at which they deploy, decreasing their sensitivity, limiting the number of rounds per magazine, adding a biometric safety lockout, oh wait). This causes many more deaths and injuries.

    So aren’t the original lawyers and their clients now guilty of injuring the people now hurt as a result?

    Question: do we have to wait until thousands more innocent victims die as a result of this misguided do-goodism (and greed), or can we sue proactively?

    Subsidized student/low income housing. I hope this isn’t the case, but I had soldiers/airmen of my own who would lie on a lease contact to get a subsidized rate. Most common lie I saw was to not claim your spouse and/or their income on the lease agreement. This, as I had to point out to my troops on more than one occasion, was fraud and theft of services (felony in some states and definitely career ending). On the other hand, if the two did not perpetrate a fraud, the S&SRA will protect them. So this is either not a story at all, or a story about how a couple of people got caught trying to rip off a landlord and are now playing the dependopatamus card.

    In any case, definitely piss-poor “journalism” (sic) as these few critical questions could have been asked an answered in minutes. By a real reporter.

    Obliviots. The “reporter” (sic) and our current POSOTUS. Willful ignorance.

    Sue the turd. Make sure every penny he gets fromhis notoriety goes straight to the real victims of Ferguson. Name the mayor and governor PERSONALLY in the lawsuit. The taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay one more penny for thisdebacle. Sue themedia as well. Again-sue those RESPONSIBLE PERSONALLY not as agents of the state

    Frack baby frack. Increased use of (cleaner burning) natural gas frees up oil being diverted into the power grid AND home heating oil. Decreased demand for oil (plus the increased supply of replacement product) results in a surplus of oil available for mogas. OPEC could either reduce supply (starving themselves of money) or sell at the lower price (starving themselves of money).

    This was part of the original plan in 1975 and is working better (but slower) than expected. Since we have a “virtually unlimited” supply of petroleum available for harvest, the only thing standing in the way would be some ridiculous made-up hoax about how converting solid carbon into carbon vapors will Hurt The Planet . . .

    Most of those interrogated were captured during active combat operations and/or during counterintelligence sweeps of “known associates.” This is not like the NYPD just “rounding up the usual suspects.” I think any objective analysis of those interrogated will reveal damn few “innocent” (sic) subjects. Of course, your definition of “innocent” and mine are very different I’m sure.

    Doesn’ matter. The were sold WITHOUT NYC sales taxes. Purchased out of state and smuggled illegally into NYC. Specifically to avoid taxes. Yes, he was breaking the law.

    Yes. All of what you mentioned (and much, much more) are indeed ILLEGAL. Yes, people at private yard sales are spposed to collect sales tax.

    Ayn Rand nailed it decades ago. YOU yes YOU are RIGHT NOW in violation of an average of 6 misdemeanors and 2.4 felonies. EVERYBODY IS GUILTY. And yes, the jackbooted thugs make it that way ON PURPOSE.

    You Sir/Madam are one “memo” away from being Garner your own damn self.

    So we will always have a need for some kind of “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” type comparison. You know, the whole “Michigans offense generated 300 yards against Ohios defense, and Alabama held Michigan to 100 yards, therefore Alabama has a 200 yard better defense than Ohio” etc. nonsense. Fact is, right now we jus about have the BCS algorithm tweaked to perfection . . . Just in time to abandon it to a committee headed by Condeleeza Rice!

    We need a hybrid. We need a BCS-type power ranking system for cross-conference comparisons. We also need national level strength of schedule rationalization for teams who want to be number one. If Ohio State wans to be included in the national championship tournament, they need to stop filling their schedules with parochial JUCO type games. Conference championships are and always have been meaningless, and we need to keep them that way.

    Well, hate to add “science” here but there is absolutely no F’ing way this limited farce can make any rational claim at all of identifying the “best” team by any criteria. However, it is a very difficul problem. College ball is NOT the NFL, and it makes a huge difference:

    First, the number of teams and variability in quality is huge. The quality of EACH progam varies year-year. Within each conference, there are huge disparities between divisions. There are equal disparities across conferences. And these disparities are not static, they vary year-year.

    So how would you reliably identify the “X” best teams (of any number; the best 4 is a LOT harder to identify with confidence than say the best 20). If you want statistical/scientific “confidence” that you have actually included the number one team out of your pool of X playoff teams, the pool X must get larger. 4 teams? YGBSM!?! 16 teams . . . Okay, better; but how do you pick the “theoretical” top 16? Including Southwest Slobovian Community College just because they won the Pitstain Conferene Championship won’t get you there.

    We will always need a BCS-style power ranking system. I prefer a computer algorithm based on weightd factors for both offense and defense over any kind of “poll” or “committee” any day. Fact is we have way too many teams, confernces, and divisions for the “theoretical 16 best” to have played one another in the regular season except for the onesie-twosie random schedule events.

    It looks like a big rifle. Couple of additional observations: first, it is not even close to being a “sniper” rifle. Look at the sights. Precision is the key to a sniper weapon; this thing is impossible to aim reliably. Second, even if it did have advanced optics (and not an 1850s Sharps system that it apparently has), the coil spring off my Jeep Wrangler attached as part of the “muzzle brake” system doesn’t index all that reliably shot to shot; further degrading precision. So . . . whatever it is (looks like a Soluthurn 60 cal anti-tank gun from WWII, “tarted up” by some kid who watched too many Star Wars movies) . . . just stay 50 meters or so away and you’re probably safe! The most dangerous place to be around this weapon is apparently behind the trigger . . .

    The military has been used for these demonstration programs (sinkholes where politicians can shovel crony-ready payola) for decades. We have cooking oil trucks, propane station wagons, windmills, etc. etc. sucking resources away from beans & bullets every day. Not surprised some “Pals O Bama” stuck their straws in that trough. Hey, good to see technology from the 1950s (I remember making a thermopile in 6th grade to power a lightbulb with a candle) being touted as “the new hotness” though. They brough back the Ford Mustang after all!

    Green jobs.

    Ancient, inefficient technology that costs more to produce and field than the value it will ever provide over it’s lifetime. A “negative investment” if you will. Wind, solar, etc. all have yet to make net break-even.

    From an engineering standpoint, this idea is just one more “entropy accellerator.”

    Did I mention green jobs?

    So is the district attorney allowed to ignore evidence of a crime if the DA appointed “proximate victim” (in this case, defined narrowly as Olive Garden) does not wish to press charges? Or is thi a state where the DA is supposed to seek justice for THE STATE (all of the people) instead of just the people given “victim status?”

    NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!
