The same IRS office that deliberately targeted conservative groups
applying for tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election
released nine pending confidential applications of conservative
groups to ProPublica late last year… In response to a request for
the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the
Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or
documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications had not
yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made
public.(We made six of those public, after redacting their
financial information, deeming that they were newsworthy.)

HUGH:

Given the barrage of accusations and expletives directed at you concerning your sexual orientation, it's made me wonder if you're sexually attracted to me?

I still remember your invite to shower with you made years ago....

Do you think a man can be friends with a woman, without
thinking fairly often about doing her (assuming she isn't
butt ugly)?
Not so much in my experience.
Yes.

There is that mid range of being attractive enough for society but not one's personal cup of tea. That helps keep things tamped down.

And then there are a few women who although I initally wanted, I was rebuffed,and then over time in the course of a friendship I realized how much of a nut case or nut situation she was, and that no sex would of EVER been worth the mess and the hassle or the soap opera. That tames the Johnson like nothing else!

why not? you shoot the messenger all of the time.
I try to cite only generally accepted credible sources. The NYTimes has their ups and downs, but their biggest transgression to date (the run-up to the Iraq war) was a sin of ommission leading to bias, which is a RADICALLY different animal than the Alex Jones stuff that is posted daily, and one that has be publicly addressed. OTOH Alex Jones routinely does not use reputably acceptable sources, and many of the stories are not independently corroborated.

As of my other criticism of you....often you just post one liners and talking points that really dont address the issue at hand (usually because you refuse to read the fundamental discussion).

That's a critique of IRRELEVANCE more than an attack on the validity of the source.

Think about this.

I can't handle most handshakes given the perverse vibes radiating from most people. These "toxic" handshakes leave me ill and shaky for hours. My body has become very sensitive to the play of the forces.

MATH:

m men and n women are to be seated in a row so that no 2 women sit together. If m greater than n, then show that the number of ways in which they can be seated is: m!(m + 1)!/(m - n +1)!

(IIT JEE, 1993, 2 marks)

SOLUTION:

Consider m men only.

These m men can be seated in a row in mPm ways = m! ways.

Now, corresponding to any one arrangement of these m men, there are (m + 1) places for n women to occupy, so that no two women sit together.

This can be done in (m+1)Pn ways.

So, by the fundamental theorem, the required number of ways in which m men and n women can be seated in a row so that no two women sit together is:

m! x (m+1)Pn, m greater than n.

= m! x (m+1)!/(m+1-n)!

= m!(m+1)!/(m-n+1)!........prove n.

If a and b are the roots of the equation x^2 + px + q = 0 and y and d are the roots of the equation x^2 + rx + s = 0, evaluate (a - y)(a - d)(b - y)(b - d) in terms of p, q, r and s. Deduce the condition that the equations have a common root.

Regardless as I believe someone here pointed out, the 16th amendment was never ratified, Bill Benson has physical evidence on that fact.
Horeshxt:

Sixteenth Amendment ratification arguments have been rejected in every court case where they have been raised and have been identified as legally frivolous.[3]

ps....Who's Bill Benson? And since when do you care about physical evidence?(Think: climate change, 9/11)

You're so GD reasonable - how could I disagree?!

But still......my mind keeps going there..:))

I know what you mean though about the "Fatal Attraction" type chicks. Things can definitely be more trouble than it was ever worth.

You think about Bill Clinton and how he could risk so much for so little. Happens all the time. Compromised judgment. Big brain vs little brain etc.

Probably because Bill either had the personality or the money to avoid the ramifications. Us normal working Joes are not that gifted or fortunate, and we have to live where we excrete. I think that is a big difference between me and Bill.

Re: reasonable - been writing a lot for work...

There are still women that I have know as friends for years that I still want to shtup - not to worry

Conspiracy theorists flummoxed in face of actual scandals

http://www.salon.com/2013/05/15/conspiracy_th...

"...For some of Obama’s biggest and most imaginative critics, the abundance of scandal stinks to high heaven and suggests the White House is intentionally downing itself in controversy — for some reason. Jon Stewart predicted the IRS scandal would confirm every anti-Obama conspiracy theory out there, but instead, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones smell a rat about the scandals, themselves (call it a meta-conspiracy).

They seem to have gotten so good at scandal alchemy that they don’t know what to do when someone hands them solid gold. When handed a real conspiracy, they instead are building a new conspiracy on top of it that dismissies the old one..."

Conspiracy theorists flummoxed in face of actual scandals...

...For some of Obama’s biggest and most imaginative critics, the abundance of scandal stinks to high heaven and suggests the White House is intentionally downing itself in controversy — for some reason. Jon Stewart predicted the IRS scandal would confirm every anti-Obama conspiracy theory out there, but instead, Michele Bachmann, Rush Limbaugh, and Alex Jones smell a rat about the scandals, themselves (call it a meta-conspiracy).

They seem to have gotten so good at scandal alchemy that they don’t know what to do when someone hands them solid gold. When handed a real conspiracy, they instead are building a new conspiracy on top of it that dismissies the old one.

In an interview with WorldNetDaily — so we already know it’s going to be good — Bachmann said she thought the Obama administration intentionally released embarrassing news about the IRS targeting the Tea Party in some kind of elaborate Wag the Dog-style plot to distract from Benghazi:

Bachmann said the IRS announcement of misbehavior was intended to provoke conservatives and draw their anger and attention.

“I was in that Benghazi hearing,” she told WND.“I think the Obama administration is desperate to spin Benghazi, and they can’t. I think they saved this story up for a day like today so that conservatives would focus on this admission.”

It won’t work, she insisted.

“Conservatives can handle two shocking stories at the same time,” she said.“Both are equally unconstitutional and call into question the very president.”

This makes no sense, even for Bachmann. Why would the White House want to trade a 70 percent bogus scandal for a 70 percent real one? And if they did want to distract from Benghazi, there has to be a better way than manufacturing negative information about yourself. This is a bit like a child intentionally peeing himself to “distract” his classmates from the fact that his pants just fell down....
