    I am not arguing that at all and that you come to such a bizarre conclusion based on what I said is, well odd. The fact is that unless you tackle the conditions that create armed robbers, armed robbers will continue to be created; you can continue to kill them (pop them? really?) but that will not change the reasons that people turn to armed robbery. Bear in mind that armed robbery is not a capital offense and self defense can only be justified under certain circumstances.

    that_girl reacted to Peikko in Religious Beliefs - Fact or Fiction   
    A belief in god is a fact, people do it, and in private life there is absolutely no reason why they should not. What I personally object to (and why I highlighted your post btw) is the imposition of ANY religious belief onto public life via the legal system and in facets of state and federal government. We as human beings are perfectly capable of creating laws and acceptable behaviours that are based on ethics that are applicable to everyone regardless of their faith. The problems occur when a law is based entirely on an interpretation of religious conformity that in fact impacts on people dependent on their particular beliefs as apposed to equality and fairness. Passive acceptance in these circumstances is wrong and to be condemned.

    Seriously, I have had enough of your skirting around the TOS with these misogynistic, anti-American rants. If I or anyone else on here were to spout off on something vaguely derogatory about Ukrainian women, you'd be reporting my ####### quicker than you can say Jack Robinson.

    For what it's worth:
    My mom's career when I was born was as a mechanical engineer. She worked this job for 20 years (from the age of 23 to 43) then went back to school because she wanted to be a teacher. She makes a lot less money now, but she's much happier as a high school physics teacher. And she was way older than you were when she went back to school. It can be done!

    I think that it's really none of your biz what he gets up to, and for you to be so intrusive into speculating about his STD chances, his views on relationships, etc...well it's a bit ott, innit? Point is, you only know because he confided in you...do you really know what your other friends do? Do you know if all of your single male friends practice safe sex, and have you figured out the statistical chances of them contracting something? Do you know if any of your friends like to be diapered up and powdered like a baby? No. Do you know if any of them have a penchant for being whipped or kicked in the groin? Nope. Because what goes on behind closed doors is non of anyone else's biz. We can find fault with anyone really if given all the facts, but at the end of the day, now that you know, and with such a moral high ground stance you're taking (with it being akin to child abuse, which I couldn't disagree more with btw), isn't it clear what you need to do? Or would you hang out with child molesters?
    Truthfully, the guy's biggest fault, where your concerned, is treating you as a friend and telling you too much.

    If whites can scream browns to go back to Mexico or India, then browns can scream the same thing. The thing to realise here is that we all immigrants to America. White or brown. Only the natives Americans are natives here. Even them too came from Africa many, many thousands of years ago. So this argument of going back to where ever one came from originally doesn't hold water. Everyone was an illegal to America once.

    Had an engagement ring with a big honking diamond for the first marriage. Stupid thing was always in the way, and really, we could have used that money for something else (like food, rent, ... when it turned out he was useless in addition to being a jerk and I had the only paycheque). This marriage, no engagement ring. Just the matching wedding bands. It is the marriage relationship that counts, not the jewelery.

    Yeah, the Obama brown shirts are going to insist you spend the first 30 minutes of your day taking PT, all sugar is going to be banned, salt will be removed from supermarket shelves, fast food places are going to be nuked, televisions will be forcibly removed from houses and sitting on the settee for longer than 30 minutes at a time will become a criminal offense punishable by 30 days on the tread mills which are going to be introduced to replace coal fired power stations. All cars are going to be confiscated and you will be given a bike instead, meat eating is going to be made illegal and finally, illegal aliens are going to be put in greyhound buses armed with six packs of coca cola (HFC laden) and Twinkies where they will eat and drink them as they are slowly driven around city neighbourhoods in order to infuriate GOP voters. Good times, good times

    Is stuffing a vending machine full of high fructose corn syrup products and carcenogenic zero cal products 'choice'? Not in my book. Presumably the government can decide what types of 'food choices' they allow on their property - making these choices primarily healthy ones doesn't seem particularly limiting to me - after all, these things are still available in stores everywhere.

    that_girl reacted to Gary and Alla in No citizenship for US-born migrant kids   
    If one dissects the definition, there is a distinction. If one considers the way of life and working conditions, slaves generally had it better. That is probably not as well known by illegals whent they make that decision. Illegals are the current "replacement" for slaves. The analogy is valid. We have ALWAYS had slaves in this country, or some facsimile thereof. Slaves, oppressed black people, illegal immigrants...all because and ONLY because it is economically feasible to do so. We could have ended slavery without a war by TAXING the property of the slave holders and making slaves economically unfeasible to own. But the war wasn't about slavery any more than rape is about "sex".
    Rather than hope the illegals "get fvcked", I would like to see the employers lining their pockets by abusing and exploiting them get fvcked. If we would end the economic advantage of hiring them and end the opportunity for illegals to work in bad conditions for half wages, the problem would go away.
    However, like slavery, the dirty secret is that neither political party WANTS the "problem" to go away. They just "address it" in the way which fits into their constituents desire. On the one hand...BUILD A FENCE, on the other hand...AMNESTY. Neither will work and amnesty is simply a conversion of working illegals into unemployed legals and a conscription of more "slaves" to replace them. Once "legal" the illegals will demand minimum wage, payroll taxes, benefits, safety equipment, etc...all those expense for which they were hired as illegals to begin with. Their "selling point" is stripped away and they have to compete for honest work with native speakers. Good luck with that. No problem for the one political party...they will put them on welfare and make them dependent and count up more votes for Obama and people like him. Republican business owners will hire the new illegals that pour across to take their place. In a few years there will be another amnesty and the democrats will rack u another 12 million people or so to depend on them. Eventually they will become citizens and VOTE to confiscate money from OTHER citizens who work for a living, to support their families.
    And you expect this will change anytime soon? If ANy politician were serious, they would propose a TAX on hiring illegals, an onerous tax, and allow the confiscation of property and businesses to pay the tax. If the penalty for hiring an illegal to mow your lawn was the loss of your home...would you do it?

    Who says there is not a K-3?
    Speed of receiving the visa should not be the main consideration. Consider ALL the advantages and disadvantages of all.
    K-1 gets the loved one here faster, btu then they cannot travel or work for several months or more. CR-1 takes a little longer but comes with a green card, so immediate travel and work, if those are considerarions.
    K-3s (YES still available) allow up to two years traveling before adjusting status...good for a person who has to take some time to close a foreign business, for example, or a family that may intend to live in a foreign country after some time and really do not need a green card at this time. For the average permanent resident seeking couple, the K-3s have nothing to offer really and are frequently called "obsolete" They are not obsolete, just of limited attractiveness.

    that_girl reacted to IndigoSkies in NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World   
    When I saw this on FoxNews website, I knew the idiots are going to have a field day with this. Let me tell you the real reason why NASA is courting the Muslim countries, especially in Middle East. NASA is broke. It's got no money. But Musilm countries in Middle East have someting like 1 trillion dollars sloshing around waiting to be invested in something. But Western world is weary of letting Muslims invest in West. Remember the port incident? Dubai World wanted to buy the port but American protectionism kicked in. NASA just wants the money from Muslims. But by speaking to Muslims in a much you-are-my-partner-in-this way, it's going to get the despotic Arab leaders more worked up about this. They'll start investing in NASA and space program for prestige reason. After all that's what Arab leaders like to do with their biggest everything dream: tallest building, biggest snow park, fastest this, slowest that, cleanest clean room, etc. You get the point.
    At the end it's true, NASA is much less of an American thing and more of a human thing. One small step for mankind and one giant leap for mankind and all that ish. I'm sorry that many Americans won't be able to see past their fake eyelashes.

    What really would me make feels safer, and better, is if the US would stop sending my tax Dollars to ISRAEL and would stop spending my tax Dollars on bombing the sh*t out other nations somewhere around the globe.
    If we stop f*cking with them, they really won't have any reason to #### with us.
    I had a dream. I dreamt that one day the US will be a peaceful nation and the $1,000,000,000,000.00 we so far spent on the war in Afghanistan would have been used to help the American people, built schools, hospitals, streets, create jobs and a healthcare system that actually works.
    Is that a ridiculous dream or what?
