Now that's fine dining in so many ways.
Do you have a table always held open for you

open permanently at a restaurant in Southlake,
but it's very impressive.
Fine dining takes on an entirely new meaning
when it's connected to whom you bring to eat.
Well when we decided to do the hamburger thing our nite started out to get the hamburger and a what ever kind of drink then go to our grandson's basket ball game. But the game got cancelled so we still did the hamburger thing and a few beers. So what the H3LL is your problem with this hamburger thing? You sure can pick on some of the dumbest thing.
I know people that can buy and sell you in a New York minute and enjoy all things and just being with people. People that work as hard as you trying to sell yourself as being so much better than the rest of the world usually are not! If it is true you are well off your money does not impress me but if you had a better attitude would. Now I realize you don't care what I think! OH WELL!

WASHINGTON — CIA operatives and U.S. special operations troops have been secretly training Syrian rebels with anti-tank and antiaircraft weapons since late last year, months before President Obama approved plans to begin directly arming them, according to U.S. officials and rebel commanders.

The covert U.S. training at bases in Jordan and Turkey, along with Obama's decision this month to supply arms and ammunition to the rebels, has raised hope among the beleaguered Syrian opposition that Washington ultimately will provide heavier weapons as well. So far, the rebels say they lack the weapons they need to regain the offensive in the country's bitter civil war.

The IRS’ auditor told Congress this week that it stands by its determination that conservative groups were uniquely singled out for special scrutiny by the tax agency, rebutting Democrats’ contention that liberal groups also were targeted.

The Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration (TIGTA) sent a letter Wednesday to congressional Democrats telling them that while several liberal groups may have gotten extra scrutiny, the IRS didn’t necessarily target those — but it did do so for conservative groups.

“TIGTA concluded that inappropriate criteria were used to identify potential political cases for extra scrutiny — specifically, the criteria listed in our audit report. From our audit work, we did not find evidence that the criteria you identified, labeled “Progressives,” were used by the IRS to select potential political cases during the 2010 to 2012 timeframe we audited,” Inspector General J. Russell George said.

He said that while 30 percent of groups that had the word “progressive” in their name were given extra scrutiny, 100 percent of groups with “tea party,”“patriot” or “9/12” in their names were pulled out for strict scrutiny, which involved what the IRS since has said were invasive and inappropriate questions.

Democrats have argued that the IRS’ scrutiny of applications for tax-exempt status hit both ideological sides equally, which would cut at the GOP’s argument that it was politically motivated. Instead, Democrats have said the scrutiny is the natural result of a jump in applications after campaign finance rules changed following the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Citizens United case.

But Mr. George’s letter suggests that’s not the case.

“While we have multiple sources of information corroborating the use of tea party and other related criteria we described in our report, including employee interviews, e-mails, and other documents, we found no indication in any of these other materials that ‘progressives’ was a term used to refer cases for scrutiny for political campaign intervention,” Mr. George wrote.

I will agree that fine dining takes on an entirely new meaning when it's connected to whom you bring to eat. Fine dining would be better if I brought a homeless person to dine with rather than sitting with you. Your bitchie attitude would ruin the meal!

You're right it's just a dumb innocent hamburger.

Well I hate to let you in on this but You are probably spending time on here with "just the people". And if you actually do have money I would be willing to bet the only reason someone is eating with you is you are buying and they are not.
No different between a hamburger and a steak except one is ground up and the other not. But both come from COWS!

A few minutes is worth the time here.
It's slumming for the mind.

A good steak is not hamburger meat.
That should be apparent to anyone who's had one
even once. Hooves, dung and tongues come from cows
to. Hamburger is in the same class.

Earlier this year, President Obama signed a set of executive orders targeting gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings. Among them was an edict commanding the CDC to do a comprehensive survey of studies regarding guns and gun violence in the United States. Clearly, once the CDC produced the hard evidence that the US was a violent nation of wild-west shootouts, the American people would be eager to approve and fund future research while embracing strict gun control legislation.

At least that was the plan. The study, which was compiled by the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council under the CDC's direction, was recently completed and released. The anti-gun crowd has been awfully quiet about it. Could it be that it didn't support their bogus hypothesis?

In a word, Yes. The CDC's numbers basically back every pro-gun rights argument made over the course of the last year.

First and foremost, the majority of annual gun-related deaths are due to suicide, not crime.

The study finds that "Between the years 2000-2010 firearm-related suicides significantly outnumbered homicides for all age groups, annually accounting for 61 percent of the more than 335,600 people who died from firearms related violence in the United States.”

While this is still a depressing statistic, it supports gun-rights advocates' claims that the country has a mental health problem, not a gun owner problem. In fact, the study found that those who own guns, carry them, and fight back against criminals are actually fare better in dangerous situations.

The report notes that virtually all studies which "assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns” found the same thing. There are "consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”

But self-defense with a firearm is incredibly uncommon. After all, that's what the lefties are always telling us, so it must be true. Right?

Wrong.

The CDC report finds that "Defensive use of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence." In fact, while exact statistics are hard to come by, the report indicates that "Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008."

So, there's as much as a 10 to 1 ratio of defensive firearm use vs. offensive use, though admittedly the 3 million figure is probably a bit high.

Very interesting.
Did the report say anything that most violent crimes that have guns involve are usually gotten illegally And the victims usually have gotten their guns legally?

I wasn't talking about your endowment. If you are on the ass side of being a person then your wealth to me would not be worth putting up with you. When I said Big Me I I was talking about selling yourself as having more wealth than you do.

Sodom and Gommorrah was about rich people using and abusing the poor and raping women.

But if your going to take a Russian paper for your reflections on Obama and hold them as your go to source, maybe you should read up what their doing to women speaking out in Russia like Pussy Riot.
