Regarding your post on suicide by race; and your initial comment of I wonder why?
Canadians have access to universal single payer healthcare; that includes psychological and psychiatric problems. They don't have to fear going to get help because of financial reasons.
That may be a contributing facture; that and the weather.
On another note, another young man was killed by the Boca Raton police yesterday; he apparently had mental health problems and had a screwdriver in his hand. Did he have to be killed?
well, Phillips, standard, Torx? c'mon, give us the full details?

have you seen the damage a Torx driver can do in the hands of a maniac? the horror...the horror....

DALLAS (AP) Former President George W. Bush is displaying his portraits of world leaders in the first exhibit of his work as an artist.

The portraits, which include everyone from a grim-looking Russian President Vladimir Putin to a smiling likeness of the late Czech playwright and President Vaclav Havel, are part of an exhibit opening Saturday at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas. He even did a self-portrait.

You are wrong. You keep claiming voter IDs will not cut back on voter fraud -that is wrong.
You didn't have any facts-stupid-just a bunch of opinions
I am telling you your opinions are wrong.
Happens everyday here-it is not a violation of privacy laws if the person gives consent by swiping the card.
Go look up opinions about assessing DMV records during alcohol sales and if it violates privacy laws.
What a moron!
no i gave you facts...
not one of the very few cases of documented voter fraud would have been prevented by voter IDs..not one. and i showed you why.

you can keep lying if it makes you feel better but the truth is the truth and the facts are the facts.

Yes, it is totally amazing. The clerk verifies the photo and then you tap the card and in a little bit it comes back as "Approved" much like credit cards are verified. The clerk then completes the sale.

It is not a violation of privacy when the person who was issued the card gives permission for the DMV records to be assessed. This is where you keep stumbling.

they are not being accessed, that is where you keep making a total ass of yourself. those card readers just take the info off the magnetic strip..

still absolutely nothing to back up this idiotic statement of yours? nothing at all? why is that again?

why are you just posting this bullshit instead of trying to back up your stupid statement?

not your local Walgreens or LickRmart, nor Target when they swipe your DL when you return the sweater your got for christmas...
Let Walgreens go. That was a pretty bad example. The over the counter drug part might be different, I don't know. It is a law and that ID has to be valid. No one has access to a driving record unless it's your lawyer or someone who needs it like a driver's job.

Notice I said over the counter. Realtime might confuse it with scripts.

no you didn't. you would need a massive data base to back it up for it to do anything, and none of the proposed ID laws include that.

you can lie all you want to about this, but the facts remain the same..showing an id at the poll would not have stopped even one of the documented cases of voter fraud you spent all morning digging up...all four or so of them...

not one. at the cost of millions per state just for the card readers...not one.

No, I wanted our president to act like a leader instead of a politically motivated coward. This White House never intended to push for an extension of U.S. troops in Iraq because it wasn't politically advantageous and didn't fit into his personal agenda.
This administration's negotiating strategy failed to take into account Iraqi politics and reach out to a broad enough group of Iraqi political leaders, and sent contradictory messages on the troop extension throughout the process.
Iraqi Ambassador Samir Sumaida'ie said that there was widespread support in Iraq for an extension, and there were other options such as putting the remaining troops on the embassy's diplomatic rolls which would automatically give them immunity.
Obama focused only on Maliki and neglected to consider any other options, but serious negotiations also got started far too late.
Obama wanted to make it look not like they failed to reach an agreement and fulfilled a campaign promise. It was very clear, however, Panetta and Gates wanted an agreement.
According to Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, "It's particularly troubling because having some sort of presence there would have really facilitated our policy vis-a-vis the Iranians and what's going on in Syria. The Iranian influence is going up in Iraq. It makes it harder for us to play our cards, and that's a real setback. We've spent a lot of blood and treasure in Iraq. And these days, stability in that region is not what it used to be."
Obama failed once again as a leader because he's a political power hungry radical liberal.
And here's another area where the Magic Negro fails: good government. Recall when he bellowed about how his administration would be the most transparent in American history? All you can see inside of this government are rows of smiling white teeth in the darkness.

you really should give him some info on dog bite suits. one bite is pretty much $10,000 guaranteed. you should give such info to your neighbor (and maybe his insurance company!)

side note on dog bites....in MN the electric gas company Excel energy has a zero tolerance policy on dog bites. if a dog even nips one of their workers, who can come onto your property unannounced if they need to service/check/test equipment lines, etc....that dog will be put down. you can hire all the lawyers you want, they have more and that dog will be killed. sad....
