Back up your claim that Republicans are against women and minorities. You can't.

Back up your claim that Republicans are responsible for the shutdown. You can't.

Sucks to always be wrong, doesn't it?

Can any of the computer gurus tell me if it's going to make much of a difference if I buy a laptop with 1. ghz vs. 2.20 ghz? We just use it fo surfing the net, my kid plays some (not high graphic) games and stuff. Not a whole lot. I sometimes (though rarely) use if for movies and (alsorarely) to play a DVD.
I had 2 laptops, but one kicked the bucket a week or 2 ago. I need a second computer and don't really want a PC.
Thanks!
I wouldn't say I'm a guru, but I know a thing or two. Is there a number after the 1. on the first processor?

How many cores? What are the other specs, especially the RAM? What operating system are you running? What is the price difference?

You don't need a top of the line set up for your use, but if the first one is 1ghz and there is nothing after the 1., that is kind of the absolute bare bones minimum. Without knowing more, I'd spring for the faster one, but some additional info would be helpful.

Why don't you pull your head out of you butt and take a look around. Maybe then you won't be wrong all of the time.

This is a blatant mischaracterization of a feminist.
I feminist would say a woman should have a CHOICE as to whether to wants to work or be a SAHM.
People who say that woman should work only are not feminists. You making up crap again?
Where did I say that feminists say women should work only? Who is making crap up again? Clearly it is you.

Taken from YOUR post:

"Now feminists would say, we need to do more to help women raise children and work, but that's not what my wife wanted. She didn't want to work. She's just wanted to be a SAHM. That alone was enough on her plate."

Pray tell what were you trying to say in the above other than what I took from it. I'd appreciate a clarification if I may.

Michael Jackson death trial. AEG not guilty.

I really want to know whether the jury found anything about Jackson contributing to his own death.

It is too bad he is dead, but he was a (very talented) druggie from the quintessentially dysfunctional family.

This lawsuit never should have been brought.On of the more dramatic examples of trying to blame someone else for their own ( her MJ's) actions

It pushed his daughter to the brink of suicide. Didn't his mother have any idea of the kind of person he was and what he did? Apparently not.

Too bad he is dead.

I agree with you on the blame game. The mother is in denial.

SOME RECOVERY!!!
Here's something on the recovery of the economy (Republican):

Assembly Republican Whip Scott Rumana, R-Passaic, Bergen, Essex and Morris, said today’s news reports that New Jersey’s economy is on the upswing as evidenced by the growing opportunities for jobs in the information technology field (IT) and the state’s high ranking for its improved business climate are further evidence of the economic recovery the state is experiencing.

Dice.com , an employment listing website, reported that companies looking to hire in the IT field had increased over five percent from a year ago, outpacing other states on the East Coast, while the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated New Jersey had added 3,600 IT jobs by the end of July. In addition to the IT news, the state’s economic improvement was evidenced by a BusinessFacilities.com report which ranked New Jersey fifth for its “most improved business climate,” and its second place ranking in biotech employment and pharmaceutical employment.

“An important takeaway from these reports is that our economic growth is diversified,” stated Rumana, who is a member on the Red Tape Review Commission, whose objective is to help businesses navigate government bureaucracy.“Jobs are being created in our traditionally strong sectors as well as in IT, which is a worldwide market. Our ability to compete and attract this diversity of professions speaks to the fact that our state’s strategy for turning our economy around by being more business friendly is working.We are poised to continue the economic momentum we achieved through the first six months of the year and the private sector job growth we have seen since Governor Christie came to office three years ago.”

Hey, maybe you need to talk to Tonka on how to switch to an IT job.:D

Now, I don't think we are in full recovery, but I do believe we are on the path of a full recovery. I can see it where I work which is in a financial field.

Of course there will be shifts -- certain jobs will be less while others will take an upswing. That is normal throughout history.

Where in that post does it say it is MY understanding that feminists don't believe women should have the choice to work or not? How do you take that away from that? REally, it boggles the mind.

To recap, I was talking about the gender pay gap and how women who CHOOSE to stay at home to raise their children contribute to the pay gap by making this choice. I specifically said:

"Individual choices would be like a woman getting pregnant and staying out of the workforce to raise children while the children are young, like my wife has done. She's not going to be making the same as a man in her same field who didn't leave the workforce for 9 years like she did, nor would she think it unfair that she doesn't.

Now feminists would say, we need to do more to help women raise children and work, but that's not what my wife wanted. She didn't want to work. She's just wanted to be a SAHM. That alone was enough on her plate."

****

My point about feminists (and I've heard this exact seem reasoning used by a prominent feminist in an article I read on the subject ... in fact I'm pretty sure I provided the link to this article on this thread the last time this topic came up quite some time ago) was that we should do to help women who are raising children work to help lessen the pay gap, but as my wife's situation illustrates, it is still not going to erase the pay gap, because many women like my wife don't want to juggle work and raise very young children. It doesn't matter what society does to help women with this ... some women don't want to deal with a 40 hour work week and shipping their children off to daycare.

That was my only point and this fact and observation of mine has nothing to do with feminists supposedly believing that women should not have the choice to work or not, which is what you somehow took away from my post and which I never said or even suggested.

Sheesh. This is why I hate having in depth discussions with you. I have to walk you through everything.

Stina,
Processor speed is great, but ram is more important at these levels. If the ram is equal then get the better processer.

Hope you're sitting down.

I was sick when I got laid off and it got worse the next day and last week. That helped me stay offline, because I was in bed much of the time. I didn't want to get sucked into a vortex of chatting online when I should be sleeping or job hunting.

Long story short, Nick made me see the doctor today and... I am facing a probable diagnosis of liver and lung cancer. Surgery (needle biopsies) on Friday.

Large (nectarine-sized?) mass on my lung, small spot on my liver, pneumonia in my right lung. The doctor was blown away, given my health otherwise, my age, and my physical activity.

No booze allowed, but my dear friend said he'd set me up with medicinal marijuana.:)

I was raised on MASH and its gallows humor. I plan to rely on that in the coming months.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
