Well, to rational and clear-thinking people, that seems to be a problem.
Wasn't he raised and cared for by white people? Didn't white people open the doors of academia for him? Does he consider all white people pricks? Aren't you white?
How would know what rational, clear-thinking (isn't that a bit redundant) people would are having problems with? However, yes; that's your racist assumption; that's clearly untrue, and yes, I am an extremely white rational person who would not become a Grumpy Old Prick as long as one brain cell remained.

So making fun of heavy weight females is not sexist in your mind? Not a big surprise,but expected you to have the good common sense not to be proud of yourself for it.
Yet, we pay for these guards in every social security office. How do you justify that?
I think you are grasping at straws here.
emam for sure; you're fat; aren't ya?

Mandatory car insurance requirements are routinely ignored, particularly in major cities.
Homeowners insurance is not required by law.
However, most homeowners insurance policies do cover personal liability.
Your liability if someone steals your firearm and uses it, legally or illegally, is exactly zero.
Evidently, you have not knowledge of the law.

I guarantee that if you left a loaded gun on the kitchen table, and your kid's friend picked it up & killed someone, that you would get your ass sued in court & lose.

The one thing for sure about the North Korean government is that the leaders are insane, so anything is possible.
The Supreme leader may soon be faced with his first real challenge, one that he cannot solve by campaigning or fund-raising.
If North Korea follows through with this ever growing threat, I'm afraid it will be a challenge for the entire world.

Let's hope Obama acts like a real leader instead of the front man if that, God forbid, should happen.

It's hard to imagine even someone like Kim Sung Un being that insane. Problem is, no one knows.

They have an underground subway system that goes down 100-200 meters, they've been training for war for over 50 years!
Maybe the President should call his bluff and say "listen buddy, these are your options: we will bomb the hell out of your reactor and drone you and will not give you any money. Period."
Obama doesn't have the stomach for that kind of action and the bigger tragedy is that nobody would believe him, making the possibility of war even greater.

March 20, 2012 - President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.

Didn't white people open the doors of academia for him?
Does he consider all white people pricks?

<quoted text>There are only a couple of roads to the South dummy, see for yourself and it would take months to stage a massive land invasion__months in which the N Korean troops would be exposed. And probably hungry as hell.
I said one or two well placed missiles and nothing about the N Korean countryside. Maybe a round through the roof of that massive building where all the N Korean muckety mucks gather up and another into the Pyongyang power plant.
The N Korean civilians and 97% of the military haven't a fkn clue as to the damage the US can inflict within minutes.
Doesn't matter chump, China will jump in ahead of us and smack that fat little prik around. China sure as hell doesn't want a unified Korea that it can't exploit.
Seoul is less than fifty miles from the border. North Korean ground troops could swarm across the border regardless of roads.

By the way, it is illegal under US law to target a foreign leader for assassination.

That's bullshyte.

The only thing that preempted the UCF shooter last month was his own room mate who saw the guns, locked himself in a bathroom and called 911. That led to the responding police being ready to rumble and the only shot the kid got off was the bullet he put through his own brain.

His wish was to kill hundreds and he could have with ease.

I'll halfway agree with you on Holmes only because he had made an attempt to reach out.

Spend all you want, you'll never protect society from the devious crazy.

Look, dumbf*ck, you said gay marriage is a State issue.
Denying gay marriage discriminates against homosexuals.
A large number of states discriminate against homosexuals in denying gay marriage. It doesn't make it right.
Just like in the past, states discriminated against blacks, women, etc.
I guess you think it is OK to discriminate if 51% of the people say it is. The phony is you. GFY
"real dumb"
You are a typical left wing loon. In your world the folks should not have the power to decide? A predictable response from a nut. All states prohibit sex between adults and children, that must be a real stumbling block for you.

Your suggestion is basically to beat up on North Korea because they are weak. The only differences between North Korea and Iran are that Iran is a much bigger threat, but we are much less likely to confront Iran because Iran would not be a pushover.

Perhaps you leave loaded guns on your kitchen table, but rational people do not.

Exactly. A retired ceo of a mental health organization shot his wife at her office yesterday here in Boca, then shot himself.
Go figure.
