The third would be to act superior around the other clubs and anyone not in a club, too, and try and get them to join the CC. Yes?

I'M GOING TO WATCH TWILIGHT.
YOU PLACE BETS ON HOW LONG I WATCH IT FOR OR WHAT IT BRINGS ME TO DO.
GODSPEED YOU GLORIOUS FAGGOTS. I WILL MISS YOU.
Voting laws back then were determined by the states. It was just property-owning white males up until the 1820s when white men without property could vote. Then non-whites in 1870, women in 1920, poll tax eliminated in 1964, voting age dropped to 18 in 1971. So basically with his comment he is saying "fuck you" to poor people, minorities, women, and people aged 18-21. Not a great political strategy.But how many people will see it that way? I kind of think it's unlikely that many will, they'll be pissed because their special got canceled.
Something so often forgotten in the attacks on 'useless' science is just how many black swans are found in those experiments.
why are there less jobs?
people are spending less.
is this a problem?
only for those that have no job.
Lets not call it less jobs but a reduced amount of work.
why make some people work hard and some work not at all?
why not make everybody work less?
PART TIME MOTHERFUCKERS.
or am i being stupid now.
And sometimes I make Ketchupaki
is it racially insensitive of me to have assumed that this would involve curry?
1Kings20:35-36Quote35 By the word of the LORD one of the sons of the prophets said to his companion, "Strike me with your weapon," but the man refused. 36 So the prophet said, "Because you have not obeyed the LORD, as soon as you leave me a tiger will kill you." And after the man went away, a tiger found him and killed him.
So what is a think tank, then? What do they do?
Shoot the shit, sit around, talking about how to "make things better." The one I was attending sat there and looked at data and papers on that data, discussing what the underlying problems are. And ways they can possibly be fixed.
The Children's Initiative is a non-profit organization I now consult with on the Report Card Committee--they come out with a book of stats and recommendations for various issues like poverty, truancy, drugs and dui's, etc. for San Diego County. I'd rather spend time with The Children's Initiative because they don't have a specific government entity or political party edge they are reporting to--they report to EVERYONE and ANYONE who wants their book. It's pretty awesome, actually, and those of us on the panel are pretty diversified and bring a different set of expertise to the table. Doctors, nurses, lawyers, businesspeople, CEO's, teachers, PTA, etc.
Anyway, the thinktanks usually have a few issues or goals they determine will be their focus and "think" about them--with data and suggestions, usually. The Obamite ones, though...they were headed up by the Democrats and those who put Obama on the slate and kept him there. The stakes they set, I don't know, I just don't like being agendized that way.
At least with The Children's Initiative, I feel like what I'm doing is non-partisan.
The bailout did exactly what it was meant to do - transfer vast amounts of wealth from the Treasury to private pockets. Loans to small businesses and would be house-buyers are down, employment is down, hours are down, wages are down, but stock prices are BOOMING.:/ I don't think I'll ever understand politics for as long as I live. At least, why people keep letting politics happen.
You probably did hear right - the media are pretty oblivious to anything that happens outside the D.C. Village, except when it comes to local outlets. We have the same deal here with London, though to be fair, 25% of the country's population can be found in the greater city area.
Looting the proceeds of empire is what sent the Roman Republic into a political tailspin, too. Only this time, it's the financial sector that is wrapped around the government like some kind of giant, vampiric squid, sucking that sweet green out as quickly as it can. And it will probably keep doing so until the great financial centres of the world resemble the Baghdad Green Zone...while everywhere outside looks more like, well, the rest of Baghdad. Financial recessions have a bad habit of creating a backlash in the guise of fundamentalism...and it just so happens to be a theory that Mr Hopey is the AntiChrist (and a Muslim).
