We had Wells Fargo out in CO and also our mortgage with them. We also have a CC with them. I can check all my balances on website, which we liked, besides being happy with them.

When we moved to NC there were no Wells Fargo branches in state; however, they bought Wachovia right around that time, which was based in Charlotte, which subsequently all became Wells Fargo. So we were able to keep banking through them the whole time.

Banks are very ouchy about having screwed up he bill pay things. The bargaining chip is an agreement whether or not to publicize their screw up. They should fix it, pay any late charges a promise never to let it happen again.

Ah, but this is a bit different... teh article says that was addressed, and they're not denying him the constittional right to procreate period, just until he has a J-O-B to cover it all... teh article cites a 2001 WI supreme court case on somethign similar:
In July 2001, Wisconsin Supreme Court justices upheld a Court of Appeals ruling that affirmed the probation condition stemming from a Manitowoc County case. In that case, a man had been charged with seven counts of intentional failure to support his nine children, according to the Supreme Court ruling in State vs. Oakley.
The justices ruled in that case that defendant David Oakley’s constitutional right to procreate wasn’t eliminated. He still could reproduce — if he made child support payments, according to the ruling.
but, given his biological role in procreation, i'm thinking it could still happen and nobody could knwo that (a) he did it and (b) it's his... those are teh bigger loopholes in this.

Does anyone think the Chiefs should have cancelled their game on Sunday?(I don't care either way, just am curious.)

Would RedHeadwGlasses LLC close up shop & turn away thousands of paying customers if Joe from Accounting killed himself before a big client event....and then still be on the hook to pay all the overhead related to the cancelled event and probably be obligated to issue refunds to people who could not come to the rescheduled event?

Hey, I was just asking. I'm amazed the coach went ahead and participated on Sunday. I think many would be too freaked out after watching a guy put a bullet in his own head in front of others.

Nope. Won't fly. The courts can't do anything that interferes with your right to procreate. Too many ways for that to go wrong.
Sterilzing the unfit was still around in the 60's I think.
Eugenics was big in Hitler's Germany.
I will tolerate serial inseminators to avoid going back to the Eugenics thing
I know, still. If we could think of a way that it wouldn't be abused. I guess anything could be abused, though.

Sometimes the best way to get through things is to keep living.

Remember when we talked about Torrey Smith from the Ravens a couple of months ago? He found out that his brother had died in the middle of the night, went to see the family, but came back to play that night and had an amazing game.

The Chiefs won a game that they weren't expected to on Sunday and a lot of the motivation may have been to honor Jovan Belcher as a teammate and also to work through their grief.

No, we can't prevent people from making babies but let's give illegals driver's licenses (for the purpose of getting insurance, of course) so they can take even more of Americans jobs.

It passed the State Senate, what do you think the chances of it being stopped in the House?

Would I be successful in demanding the AG arrest all those lawmakers for violating Federal law?

No need to worry about our jobs going to Mexico, let's just bring all of Mexico here and lower the standard of living for everybody! You know what such a successful and safe country Mexico is! Then the evil white man can know what it's like to be stuck on welfare!

The description I read is that the general manager was talking to him for a bit while he was holding the gun, the player asked to see the coach and someone else, the general manager called them to come out, the player thanked them all, they all tried to calm him down, he turned and as he was walking away he put the gun to his head and shot himself. Just picturing that scenario gives me the chills.

Just find it ironic that the feds will step in and prevent a state from ENFORCING federal law, but won't step in and prevent a state from VIOLATING federal law.

Can't imagine why some people are losing trust and faith in our government! They must be whack jobs!

Fair enough.

About the guy who fathered 9 kids....
Why not just order the women who he impregnates to have abortions?

If a judge has to stay out of a womans pants, then he should keep his rebublican hands out of a mans pants.
