    where’s the rest of that charitable giving, sorry?
    the total on the page does not add up, unless you are practicing multiplicative accounting.

    Uhm… that list totals $25,000
    how does the total listed reach $59251.

    AND for those who are impressed at his giving level, the max there is to his girls’ school. And remember he did not have to pay for room or board. His travel was picked up. Likely his wardrobe is somehow taken care of by his election committee or an LLC that funnels funds safely away from the IRS.

    In short, the man who claims ‘those who can should be paying more’ is not walking the walk.

    But hey, at least he DID give something to charity this year. And while the churches want all of that ‘tithe’ the total reported there is 10% of what they made (a little more) so their charitable contributions represented a tithe.

    Too bad we cannot write of the increase in food and fuel due to inflation as charitable donations, considering there supposedly ‘isn’t’ inflation right now…

    Great place to visit, but could never live there.

    How does he expect to scare the body FOR personal firearms by co gregating those who would throw away their right? By their gun nut attitude it’s pretending the sheep can scare the wolves if they form a herd of equal size as the pack. Laughable, even if the media pretends theirs is the only viewpoint

    Because RWC extremists dropped the WTC, tried to drop the Pentagon, tried to bomb Times Square, shot up Fort Hood, twice, and bombed the Boston marathon…

    Mr Bergman clearly misunderstood what he was saying.

    So if they see everything but they let it happen…
    Wait, they aren’t responsible for that, so this isn’t protective, as much as investigative.
    And last I knew there were civil rights.

    It amazes me while the cries of racism are so frequent, so many if the outraged are completely willing to sacrifice ALL of our freedom for the illusion of safety. They may catch the killer, May get footage of the killing, but the victim us just as dead.

    And the comparison to street lights is vapid. If Romero cannot see the difference between casting a light and recording any movement I feel bad for anyone whose crime he is trying to solve. He must think it is always the butler in the conservatory with the candelabra.

    No issues here, though I didn’t like losing posts before entering while they were tinkering I assume.

    I find I am skeptical about this… Even fMRI is not a density tool, and spatial resolution is limited, so this ‘changes shape’ seems dubious
    Then there is the sample size… Nothing to allow statistical significance, and the means of selection aren’t described.

    And finally, the rush the the media, before it’s published and peer reviewed in a journal, smacks of ‘cell php ones cause brain cancer’ and ‘cold fusion accomplished in a 7-11 glass’

    It doesn’t help that ominous and terrifying symptoms have been claimed and perpetuated by governmental ‘studies’ for decades.

    I’ve got news for those wanting to say ‘aha!’ Alcohol induces changes. Sugar induces changes. Your various medications change things, especially the psychotropics.

    None of us get out of here alive, so trying to scare me like this if I used weed would be ineffectual. And I would rather my kids have a dispensary than a drug dealer if they choose to try it.

    Wendy Davis made a splashy made for TV stand that could not hide the mistakes in her personal life that leave many unsettled.

    And when most thinking Americans step back, even those who believe that on occassion abortion is a potentially necessary evil see that gross overuse of the procedure, and the horrors of Gosnell et al, and recognize that the Left has forgotten the RARE part of the oft stated (but never intended) abortion should be safe and rare mantra.

    @watching, made me smile… exclude cyclists, too… road rash is worse when there’s hair involved.

    and when hairs started to sprout out of my ears i have viciously gone after them.

    as a member of a parntership, we have to pay quarterly taxes.

    one year, i made the mistake of assuming that despite having slips documenting the amounts, combining the end of year ‘true up’ payment and the first quarter payment would not cause a problem.

    a year later, the IRS sent a ‘refund’ check, claiming I had overpaid.

    fortunately, my accountant was on the ball and managed to convince them that no, i had not, and so i did not wind up with an IRS SWAT team at my door a year later for my ‘theft’ of Federal funds.

    when the system is so bloated and unwieldy it takes years to make such mistakes, it is past time we have a simple flat rate that everybody pays into, with a single surcharge on values over X, family size notwithstanding, and a flat rate for all corporations.

    The alternative, a VAT style tax would make our corporations more competetive abroad, since European companies may not pay tax in a VAT enviornment, whereas American companies might pay here and there.

    can’t happen in Massachussetts…
    oh, they’ll let you run around with a musket if you are elderly and want to pretend at being one of the colonists who helped to make this a free and independent country….

    they just don’t want anyone to consider the state of that freedom, or have arms sufficient to guarantee that freedom… No firearm, no contact tazer, no mace without arduous, time consuming, expensive licenses that might not be issued (unless you are a member of the elite class. then it’s a piece of cake, with a side slice of armed government sponsored protector pie).

    Any group attempting to leverage Justina with force of arms faces a state that until Connecticut and New York decided they wanted to ignore the Constitution gave Illinois a run for its money as being the least aware of the Bill of Rights.

    so to protect their president’s legacy they will not collect pertinent data…

    but if you decline to answer, they can bring the weight of the federal government down upon you…

    that’s Freedom form 2014O for you.

    ok, i’ll ask… anyone understand this ‘ban the box’ order?

    and 14 will never be enacted, because this ‘most transparent administration in history’ is the exact opposite. the only things they do are sub rosa, behind the curtain… what better way to drive the knife into the collective back of America

  • April 15, 2014 at 2:28am

    had the same thought.
    he’s chosen the cookie cutter drone, though… curious.

    Apparently what Harry wants is for the Bundy’s to give up their American citizenship.
    IF they were illegals, he would demand that ICE or BLM or whatever government agency was involved release them.

    Yes, Bundy should be paying for grazing if that is the law and if all ranchers doing so are paying.
    Then again, BLM should be barring the use of ‘their’ land along the southern border by illegals. THAT would seem to be a better place for their SWAT teams. But this administration, and Harry’s party, are more intent on redistributing income and swelling the ranks of the poor from whom they can buy votes.
    And of course, if Harry or his family can line their pockets along the way…

    Or maybe it’s reversed… Harry is most concerned with his own power and fortune, and beyond that he is happy to let those wanting fundamental change to have their way.

    saggy, it is a valid question.
    and maybe the sandusky’s have some innate gene based drive to prey upon the young.
    but that’s where the crucial difference exists… homosexuals predominantly, like heterosexuals preodminantly, choose for partners other consenting adults. Pedophilia by definition is predatory on the young an vulnerable.

    And much like the researcher who found that the ‘map’ of a psychopath’s brain was his own, just because you have a particular gene set does NOT mean you have to behave in a specific manner. There is enviornment and educaiton and family and culture, a host of non-genetic factors that shape each of us.

    And with some rare exceptions, most nations in the world, despite the mantra of ‘tolerance’ would not endorse stamps glorifying pedophilia… I certainly hope this nation would never consider it.

    well stated.

    Radical…
    body destroying amounts of sugar?
    as in cavities, because otherwise, sugar is a requisite source of energy. Remove all sugar from your diet and your brain will die, but only after the lactic acid build up in your muscles makes you very uncomfortable.

    and having the screen on all day? THAT is part of multitasking. It may be why so many young people today have ADD/ ADHD if there really is an increase in that condition. Because many who have studied it believe it is not a disability, but an ABILITY to process much faster… that our teaching mechanisms and paradigms are so slow (they’re geared to the lowest common denominator, after all) that such students cannot learn, whereas if taught appropriately… maybe on those screens you detest… they could learn more much faster than you or i.

    but i think we would both agree that almost anything is not as bad as people at either end of the spectrum want the rest of us to believe, so long as it’s done in moderation, and that ultimately the choice is up to the individual, not the collective or the government.

    You’re right about the animals. while my oldest was in his ‘experimental stage’ one of the things that made him stop was that his friend was doing that to the family dog, which he thought was cruel.

    i don’t think those are ‘adult’ voices in the clip.
    sounds like the boys older brother and a friend.
    you know, think Trayvon, sadly a stereotype too frequently repeated in today’s culture.

    pablum guaranteed to win money and acclaim from those in power, a la Global Warming.

    Put simply, I grew up watching Bugs and Tom and Jerry et al do horrible things to one another.
    I never tried to do those things myself or to others.

    The TV was on from the time i got home from school until bed time if we were home.
    The TV was on in my dorm room while my roommate and i studied.
    The TV was on while I studied for my various boards, and while I rocked my babies.

    Instead of examining the ability to multitask, the ‘authorities’ (who apparently grew up without TV, so who better to assess ‘what TV does’) chase after data to confirm their preconceived notions. And because it allows for the government to take still more control… what better way to minimize the impact of news and the potential subversive effects of a free media than to mandate/ regulate what and for how long TV can be watched from a young age.

    DJ is right below… PC police are looking for any critical thinkers who do more than smile and shake their heads at this.

    My mom was great… My wife is amazing. I couldn’t do what i do without them. But none of us have the toughest job in the world.

    And the people who enjoy doing whatever is called ‘the toughest job’ would not choose to do anything else… those other jobs would be tougher for them.
