Most private golf courses absolutely do not require you to use a cart, although they may charge the cart fee regardless....

The best private courses still use caddies instead of or in addition to golf carts.

Wishful thinking. We are only hearing from a couple of disgruntled people who were under-insured and are ignoring the FACT that they may very well qualify for tax subsidies to offset premium increases. Rethug tactics are laughable.

The ACA will survive just as Bush's Medicare Part D prescription plan did. You remember..the one with the confusing mess of a website that wasn't up and running upon implementation?

FACT: Most Democrats voted against Medicare Part D. However, they did not turn around and sue the Bush administration or go to the Supreme Court to get it invalidated.

Hillary Clinton at the time: "I voted against it, but once it passed I certainly determined that I would try to do everything I could to make sure that New Yorkers understood it, could access it, and make the best of it." That is a rational adult response. You people need to grow up.

It is a time factor. However no course requires you to drive that I know of. Even Kings Mill and the TPC Virginia Beach allow you to walk.

What are you talking about? The old man followed after them and shot them. If he felt threatened, he should have driven off.
That guy wasn't old or helpless. What a travesty; and if we are going to reward this type of behavior; it will never end.
BTW, that other killer who murdered that boy in Jacksonville because those kids were playing loud music is charged with first degree murder.

Nobody was seriously injured, and the so-called victims were looking for trouble:
It started when Tover, heading north on Judge Winikoff Road, steered his silver Cadillac XLR convertible with the top down in front of Alexandra Nisall's black Hyundai Accent.
Nisall testified Tover was going too slow so she honked at him three times. Tover came to a complete stop, opened his door and began to step out, she said.
Tover said: "They literally tried to run me off the road."
Papero said Nisall braked, then drove around and past Tover, while Perriello made a gesture with his arms. Nisall made a right turn from Winikoff to Glades Road, and headed east.
While Nisall was stopped in the left lane for a red light at Diego Drive, Tover pulled up next to her in the right lane.
Perriello was cursing and "started coming out of the window,'Dukes of Hazzard' stuff," Tover told the detectives. "I didn't hesitate to squeeze off a few rounds."
Sounds wonderful. Expect a lot more of these incident with these 'Stand your ground laws' and what have you. Whatever ever happened to common decency? I blame rightwing talk radio, Fox News, Tea Baggers in general.

I've read/seen where cloth diapers are making a comeback. The annual cost advantage of cloth vs disposable is mind blowing.
Cloth Diaper manufacturers have designed some really neat stuff to compete with the disposable industry like elastic edges to seal leakage, color designs, water-proof fabric linings, etc.
And it's all re-usable.
Washers and dryers are the difference now versus then__actually versus Pamper$ cloth makes sense.

I wonder where one buys diaper pins these days.

Calm down, who gives a sh!t? Golfing is for elitist white aholes, professionals and presidents.

George Carlin on Golf


I’ve got just the place for low-cost housing. I have solved this problem. I know where we can build housing for the homeless: golf courses! It’s perfect! Just what we need. Plenty of good land, in nice neighborhoods, land that is currently being wasted on a meaningless, mindless activity engaged in primarily by white, well-to-do male businessmen who use the game to get together to make deals to carve this country up a little finer amongst themselves.

I am getting tired, really getting tired, of these golfing cocksuckers in their green pants, and their yellow pants, and their orange pants, and their precious little hats and their cute little golf carts! It is time to reclaim the golf courses from the wealthy and turn them over to the homeless! Golfing is a arrogant, elitist game which takes up entirely too much room in this country. Too much room’ in this country! It is an arrogant game on its very design alone, just the design of the game speaks of arrogance. Think of how big a golf course is – the ball is that fucking big! What do these pin-headed pricks need with all that land?! There are over seventeen thousand golf courses in America, they average over one hundred and fifty acres a piece – that’s three million plus acres, four thousand, eight hundred and twenty square miles – you could build two Rhode Islands and a Delaware for the homeless on the land currently being wasted on this meaningless, mindless, arrogant, elitist, racist, there’s another thing; the only blacks you’ll find at country clubs are carrying trays.

And a boring game. A boring game for boring people. You ever watch golf on television? It’s like watching flies fuck! And a mindless game, mindless. Think of the intellect it must take, to draw pleasure from this activity: hitting a ball with a crooked stick and then, walking after it! And then, hitting it again! I say pick it up asshole, you’re lucky you found the fucking thing! Put it in your pocket and go home, you’re a winner! You’ve found it! No chance of that happening. Dork-o in the plaid knickers is going to hit it again and walk some more. Let these rich cocksuckers play miniature golf! Let them fuck with a windmill for an hour and a half or so! See if there’s any real skill among these people. Now I know there are some people who play golf who don’t consider themselves rich. FUCK ‘EM! And shame on them for engaging in an arrogant, elitist passtime.

Printing money and

Nobel Prize winners...

"Santelli was gracious and polite as he asked what the great professor's thoughts were on QE...(and the entire brief clip is worth watching in its entirety) but his conclusion is perhaps the most stunning (and left Santelli almost silent)... when asked the impact of the Fed 'Tapering' or even selling down its $4 trillion in assets, Fama calmly says "it's basically a neutral event... It's No Big Deal!"

Now we know and this explains why Obama did not know about Chan Merkel's telephone being tapped...

John Cassidy of the New Yorker asks the Professor about credit bubbles...

"I don't even know what that means. People who get credit have to get it from somewhere. Does a credit bubble mean that people save too much during that period? I don't know what a credit bubble means. I don't even know what a bubble means. These words have become popular. I don't think they have any meaning."
