You pretend to be so many things on here, would it be possible to try for non-grumpy retard just once?
So you didn't say anything about $18 and flack saying it could be done?

Well, you may be correct about that, given that Obama is a puppet for Goldman Sachs, Warren Buffet, and George Soros.
All these war criminals will be drone subjects after the revolution, wherever they flee.
Regarding the "puppet" comment, thank you for helping me make my point.

<quoted text> They are coming! California has already passed laws aimed at creating traffic violations by driverless vehicles. I kid you not.
The liability issues for driverless vehicles will be interesting.

Some folks actually enjoy driving, particularly if the car offers some performance. Other losers prefer a self-driving Volt.

Choice is OK.

<quoted text>Gee, flackmassey, Lincoln was alive in 1871? Did you see that on Scify, Discovery, or NASCAR? "Virginia v. West Virginia, 78 U.S. 39 (1871), is a 6-to-3 ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States which held that where a governor has discretion in the conduct of the election, the legislature is bound by his action and CANNOT UNDO THE RESULTS BASED ON FRAUD. The case implicitly ratified the secession of the state of West Virginia from the state of Virginia, and explicitly ratified that the counties of Berkeley and Jefferson were part of West Virginia." Pretty sure you Grumpy Old Pricks would refer to that as legislating from the bench or the spoils of war if it didn't jibe with your current Dixiecrat-rethuglicant ideology.
Hey dumbf++K! Do you see West Virginia in my post anywhere? F++king nonreading comprehension friggin' libtards.

It is an interesting academic discussion.
It will cause the constitutionalists to think a little.
There is nothing anyone can say to those who want government by political whim. Hopefully, things won't worsen to the degree where they have to learn that lesson the hard way.
There is a connection between the Constitution and the United States becoming the most beneficial and benevolent nation in the history of civilization. Without the Constitution, we would have devolved into what you see everywhere else in this hemisphere, and it would have been impossible to have remained united.
Amen.'It will cause the constitutionalists to think a little.' Was my only point.

Isn't it wonderful that these Gnarly Officious Piles can't even begin to fathom Obama's master plan to turn the economy around? Their Ah-Ha moments all have to do with discovering they're out mounting a soapbox (or another something offensive) in the cold, having forgotten to put on pants.

Don't worry, a house fly like you is bigger and abosrds food like a sponge. You people like sponging, so no problem carrot top. Will you lead the sleigh next year? We need something bright that can act as a ballast for the other eight reindeer.

Slow down and read it again. The employer is paying more in taxes without the benefit of an increase in pay.
