You really should open a salad tossing stand in Frisco. Just think of all those crusty bonus nuggets you'd discover....
OMG,you're the f*cking idiot that was having a fit because getting a $10K bonus check & having the employer pay the $2500 withholding is different that giving a guy a $12.5K bonus & withholding $2500 & writing a check for 10K.

You're that f*cking idiot.

Sorry, I didn't think so. I just don't get the point of hi-hacking someone's identity. It would seem that even these morons would want to stand by what they profess. Why would you take the time to express an opinion and then hide behind someone else's name? Only thing worse is to make a comment and then create a bunch of phony Judge-its to praise yourself. There are some psychotic cowards lurking on the right.

Remember when President Clinton PROMISED to put guns into schools?

I do!

"Marking the first anniversary of the shooting deaths at Columbine High School, President Clinton announced $120 million in new federal grants Saturday to place more police officers in schools and help even the youngest kids cope with their problems"

Say it ain't so....

BAN poison...

Unintentional poisoning kills 87 AMericans everyday...

"...28,754 (91 percent) of all unintentional poisoning deaths were caused by drugs. The class of drugs known as prescription painkillers, which includes such drugs as methadone, hydrocodone, and oxycodone, was most commonly involved, followed by cocaine and heroin."

Highly trained and REGULATED Pharmacists...

looks like these killers need more legislation or maybe a ban...

77 errors per 4,481 perscriptions...

"...In one study, fifty pharmacies in six cities throughout the United States were evaluated on their
dispensing accuracy rate. The study found an overall accuracy rate of 98.3%. That's equivalent to 77
errors per 4,481 prescriptions filled."

http://www.jdsupra.com/documents/8823bdf8-cd2...

...what about the children...

"An Ohio pharmacy board investigation showed that pharmacy technician Katherine Dudash had made a tragic error. According to a notarized statement Dudash wrote for the board, she prepared Emily's chemotherapy bag with a 23.4% saline solution, 26 times the 0.9% normally used. Pharmacist Eric Cropp didn't catch the mistake."

OK; and that dipshit Luke Woodham was stopped from a further massacre by the assistant principal with his .45. So you are now saying you dont like 50% odds? I guess you DO like seeing schoolchildren massacred....
Luke Woodham still shot 9 students, killing 2. And what about the teacher in Belkin, Utah that went berzerk and gunned down three students in the school parking lot in 2006? And what about that school bus driver in Garland, Minnesota who shot a student? Proof positive that arming school officials is a bad idea.

So, yes. He does believe in taking away our guns - at this moment of social chaos. He's like a Raccoon - an opportunist.
Your disrespect for your Commander in Chief simply shown how unAmerican you are. That's the problem with children these days. They lack respect for their elected officials and their President. If you don't support your President then you don't support your country.

I recall one, the kids loved him, but I don't recall him being there to go around trying to "frame" them. That's NOT nice either, no matter WHAT the occupation (or lack of).

Liberals are famous for lying through omission. No more gun deaths in Australia since the Gun Ban went into effect!!! Yay!!
Deaths from stabbing, bombing arson, vehicular assault, pushing off of cliffs, poisonings, beatings...have gone off the charts as a result but, hey, Liberals can jump for joy because they can boldly declare that gun deaths are gone!
There have been ZERO school shootings in Australia or England since their gun bans went in effect. ZERO. Proof positive that gun bans work to save children's lives wherever they are enacted.

Geeessshhh grampa whitey, were you born last Tuesday night? Dem has been hijacking names here as frequently as Ted Kennedy used to take a swig from the bottle. And if you are all concerned with fairness about the judgeits, look no further than your fellow left wing nuts that have stacked them since the thread started back in 2009.

Where have you been? Oh, I forgot, it's hypocrititis season and you have a doozy.

For a guy that plays in the woods all the time, one would think you could see the forest through the trees, but I guess that's why you're a liberal. Maybe you should lighten up and try to have a Merry Christmas old man. I hope you have a nice holiday. Really, it's a frikkin thread where people kill time. Watch a good movie & Lighten (or light) up! Do your liberal "thing".

On the bright side, the stores are all displaying signs of Merry Christmas again, compared to years past when the left intimidated them. That's some good news.

Why should this potus be any different from what the rest have endured?

The Clintons spent their first Christmas as President in Hilton Head, which they quickly acknowledged was a mistake. Not only did the press savage them for leaving the White House (and forgoing Camp David) during the holidays, but they personally felt bad that they tore their staff and protection away from their families on Christmas. So, they spent the rest of their Christmases in office in the White House (except the year they went to Sarajevo to spend Christmas with US troops stationed there during the Balkan War).

he Bushes’ family tradition was to spend Christmas at Camp David, so that their staff and protection could be near their families on this special day. Bush the father instilled this tradition in his son, George W., who carried it on during his own presidency. The Bushes spent a combined 12 Christmases at Camp David.

The Reagans spent every Christmas in the White House so his staff and protection could enjoy the holiday with their families. Soon after the holidays, the Reagans took a vacation to their ranch in California…AFTER the people who worked for him were able to enjoy their family time. The Reagans owned the ranch, and paid to have it transformed into a Western White House with no cost to taxpayers.
