Many people would choose to have a contractual agreement instead of traditional marriage if they could start over again.
Have the fancy wedding by the preacher, the big reception, and the honeymoon, but forget about the marriage license. Just be sure not to live in a common law marriage state.
And just where do you get this from?

More broadly, eliminate all federal programs that take federal tax dollars and return the money to state and local governments, minus an exorbitant commission for federal overhead.
Let the state and local governments collect those taxes directly, if they so choose.
And then the state and local governments will rip you off.

Look - wherever the money goes, they will rip you off. Federal government, local government, bank, corporation.

<quoted text>Tell gun owners to quit shooting people en masse and there won't be any need. Right now as noted we bear all the burden, why shouldn't gun owners bear more responsibility for themselves and their fellow gun owners actions?
If anything gun owners should get an insurance discount, they are willing to protect their property and others. Unlike the non-gun owners who would stand by and watch while others are hurt or kill like they did at Sandy Hook. They are communist minded cowards not Americans.

Gun owners would have to buy liability insurance or they could face a $10,000 fine, under a new plan proposed by a group of House Democrats.
"For too long, gun victims and society at large have borne the brunt of the costs of gun violence," the bill's sponsor, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, said in a written statement. "My bill would change that by shifting some of that cost back onto those who own the weapons."
Supporters of the idea say most states require car owners to have liability insurance to cover damages their vehicles cause to others, so the same should be mandated for owners of firearms. Opponents argue that it adds an expensive burden for gun owners and infringes on Second Amendment rights.

No chance of this passing Congress and even less chance of being Constitutional (unless the insurance is actually tax). The Supreme Court has already ruled on this in Obamacare.

Okay, pretend you're a man of smaller stature and a strong muscular guy wanted to beat the tar out of you because you were an easy target to be robbed or something. You wouldn't be wishing you had a gun for protection then?

It's not the weapon, it's the person using the weapon. Hands and muscles can be just as lethal. Why don't you get that, Homer?

<quoted text>Hey! I like it.
So right now there is no additional insurance needed or adjustments to insurance premiums if you own a gun?
Homer doesn't a own a gun, I find a bat to be more personal should anyone break in to my house.
Plus my you know is of uh adequate size, so no need to compensate and I'm not a hunter.
Generally, Homer would be better off to kill an intruder rather than seriously injure him. So, a gun is much more effective.

If Homer clubs the guy enough to make him a quadraplegic, Homer will lose a huge lawsuit. Kill the intruder and Homer walks.

<quoted text>You tube, c'mon__once again, in Florida, who administers SNAP?
BTW, SNAP is in the Florida newspapers today due to some pending Florida legislation and the arrest of a Daytona convenience store owner who was in violation.
Maybe you should research SNAP before you you spew more bullsht.
The guy was being interviewed on television and you tube provided the video.

Sheesh. Did you even see it?

Some store clerk apparently didn't honor the EBT card being used to purchase food or something. Has nothing to do with what we're discussing and there's nothing to research that would strengthen your or my argument about the fraud and abuse.

After a long and fabulous day of exclusive property/real estate hunting I am back at my expensive flat getting ready for a dinner of spotted dick, bangers, Pie and Mash with parsley liquor, and some Yorkshire Pudding for desert. I will then be retiring for the evening.
I had another successful venture today, bought another castle. Here it is:

Yorkshire Pudding was yesterday with beef wellington at a fine pub. The food is really good here nowadays nuculur. You should see if someone will pay for you to visit. You class can fly round trip for about $1000 usd.

<quoted text>What the fk are you talking about?
The criminal background data bases exist and are currently being shared by the majority if not all of the states, matter of fact there are at least three comprehensive national data bases that are not based on scientific opinion__felon means felon.
Speaking of data bases, Pennsylvania is reviewing and may rescind it's reciprocal agreement with Florida regarding conceal carry permits. Amazing eh?
Attempting to purchase a weapon illegally is a crime, so failing a background check is prima facie evidence of a crime. Yet this crime is rarely prosecuted. Why not?
