<quoted text>in CA? seriously? your entire real estate industry is out of control...
i was talking with two people here...one from CA and one from NJ. their property taxes for their single, regular sized homes on teeny lots were FAR greater than the taxes on my home on 5 acres and my 40 acres up north with a nice little cabin on it together. and MN is consistently rated as one of the best places to live...( and we still give far more to the feds than we get back!)
you folks have to learn how to use your taxes better...
real estate taxes here are 1.5% of assessed valuation, lower than in many other places....

maybe not lower than MN, but certainly lower than metropolitan areas of NY and NJ....

and the real estate market is stable and relatively inactive, primarily because of short supply due to lack of new construction.....

While Uruguay’s president grabbed international headlines for legalizing the government-controlled production and sale of weed to registered users, Mujica also presided over the legalization of abortion and gay marriage over the last two years.
In an interview with Brazilian news agency O Globo published Sunday, Mujica explained his administration’s logic.
“We applied a very simple principle: recognize the facts,” Mujica said, according to O Globo.“Gay marriage, please -- it’s older than the world. We had Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, please. To say it’s modern, come on, it’s older than we are. It’s an objective reality that it exists. For us, not legalizing it would be to torture people needlessly.”
Uruguay became the third country in the Western hemisphere, after Canada and Argentina, to legalize gay marriage last year. The reform, backed by Mujica’s leftwing Broad Front, created one set of rules for all couples, replacing the words “husband and wife” with terms “contracting parties” for legal purposes, according to the Associated Press.
All couples may adopt children under the Uruguayan law.

Come on, Pedophilia and sex slavery are older than we are. Not legalizing them would be to torture people needlessly. NAMBLA has a membership of professional people from all walks of life including judges, politicians and teachers.

We should listen to these wise people among us, right azzhole?

I didn't say normal; I said I am against legislating human behavior. It should be up to a person if he or she chooses to smoke or not; drink or not, etc. People have been smoking and drinking and taking drugs forever; laws don't make it stop. I say; to each his own.
Legalize drugs, stop arresting drug addicts; I don't care if there are laws that prohibit smoking at work or school, but, what people do on their own time is their own damn business.
even Governor Moonbeam is opposed to legalization of marijuana, recognizing that some functioning adults are required to maintain society.....

It does seem weird they haven't found one shred of evidence of a plane crash or an explosion in midair after three days.

Or no word from anyone if it was a hijacking.

I mean, it could have just exploded into a million pieces and sunk when these pieces hit the water or the currents took them further away. But luggage and other items on an airplane would have surfaced somewhere.

And maybe there will be evidence of that soon enough. But it really does seem odd that hasn't happened.

This is true, Sherlock. People will die from alcohol-related deaths and eating too much trans fat - or accidents or hereditary disease - as smoking. That's the point, isn't it, Sherlock?
Why the obsession to control just one human behavior? Is this just the beginning? Or just selective hypocrisy?
Who's obsessed and what is the behavior? Smoking? The health nazis have done a pretty good job with that.

I watched a few round-table discussions between professionals regarding the disappearance. The honeycombed construction of so much of an airliner body says that some pieces will and do, in fact, float.

The electrical systems in modern airliners supposedly have (4) layers of redundancy. Radio communications also have redundancy. Not receiving radio communications on any frequency from a troubled airliner is puzzling. Vietnamese Traffic Controllers claim that Flight 370 actually made a quick U-Turn just as it disappeared from radar. Making a 180 degree variance from your flight plan demands open-channel notification to other flights in your area - for safety reasons. This did not occur.

Weather conditions were beautiful, balmy.

Intentionally or not, flying a huge airliner below radar above the ocean for great distances can be very dangerous. If, as is speculated by some, the aircraft was hijacked to fly under radar all the way to the coast, where could it possibly land? Jungle density in that area is extremely dense so an airliner crashing into the jungle may not be noticed. However, U.S. Military Satellite Imaging showed no telltale infrared appearances anywhere in the expanded search areas. Bizarre.

What's left? The Bermuda Triangle is vacationing off the coast of Vietnam?

LOST has left the Hollywood Stage lots and headed into a nearby reality.

You're an idiot, Adolph, smoking tobacco is very relaxing and enjoyable.

For once we agree. "Sin taxing" should apply to all vices. However, people should smoke wherever they want. Hospitals used to have smoking rooms on every floor. Malls had butt containers wherever there were places to sit. Movie theaters had smoking sections. Restaurants had smoking and non-smoking sections.
No one ever complained. It was a fact of life. But the PC police started controlling this behavior and people's minds to ostracize those who engaged in this behavior. And we've all became a bunch of wimps.
Sucking in exhaust fumes in traffic is more harmful than second-hand smoke.
It'd be nice if smoking tobacco was never part of the human experience, but it's our willingness to be controlled to the point of ostracizing that's so worrisome.
I always snicker when i see idiotic health nuts jogging down a busy road sucking in car exhaust with every breath.
