My pitbull answers the doorbell for me when I'm not home.
I like pitbulls.

I've shot several of them in different towns, in more than one state, for their agressive behavior.

When the police arrive, they thank me.

Nice thing about pitbulls is that the police don't question you when you say the pitbull was attacking you.

Mostly, they just smile.

OTOH, I've a neighbor with a lovely pitbull that is all sweetness. If she ever acted agressively, I'd shoot her in a heartbeat.

Figures you'd be dumb enough to own a dangerous dog.

<quoted text> Now and in the near future it will do far more than that. It actually shouldn't be called a phone anymore. More like a tricorder. You know there is a stove/oven on the market that acts like a freezer. You take whatever it is you want to cook the next day and put it in the oven, still frozen. You then program what time you want to defrost and then cook at what temperature and time. The oven then defrosts and cooks per your orders. If you are running late you call the oven and lower the cooking temperature to extend the cooking time. This world is about to change rapidly. I have been saying this for a while now.
It's called a Whirlpool Polara, I own one of the early models with accubake duo and accusimmer.

There are already appliances that can interact with smart phones but people don't really need that fancy expensive crap although I must say that baking is more enjoyable with really good oven.

Have you ever been to the White House, sweetie? It was intended to be pretty grand, and it sort of succeeded in an eighteenth century sort of way. But, frankly, as a house it's pretty timid and remarkably small. No real chance any modern leader might mistake himself or herself for a king or queen in these times.
Have you tried having your blood filtered?

It takes a whole 10 minutes with scallops or fish, maybe 20 minutes with chicken, and you really oughta listen to Homer and stay off the red meat. What's all this "coming home from work" stuff? I thought you folks only got married so there'd be somebody home ready with a drink and your slippers? Besides, you're in here all day, how much "work" do you do?

It's been proven that the average Medicare client will colllect hundreds of times more in benefits than they paid in.

"Thanks to research from the Urban Institute, we know that almost all income and demographic groups experience high ratios of lifetime benefits to taxes paid in inflation-adjusted terms. These totals range from 225 percent for single men born in 1960 earning $110,100 annually, to over 2,500 percent for a married couple averaging $20,000 in annual income over 43 years (in 2012 dollars), and higher ratios for even lower earners."

I don't know if they teach this stuff in your church but the whole idea of the Stock Market is that it periodically explode up AND down. If all it did was go up everybody would always be making money and you wouldn't be able to "win" at anything so why bother? Every so often the Stock Market goes down and sometimes - given the prevalence of machine trading and corruption - it goes down boom! That's what it's supposed to do minus the corruption stuff which might have been what the organizers intended but how will we ever know? However, every time it even winces downward currently there you are waving your arms and predicting the end of the world. Give it a rest. Give all of us a rest. Stop being the party of paranoid it's unattractive next to all that white jiggly fat.

You watch a documentary and take it at face value. RFK wasn't in shock after his brother had been murdered in Dallas, LBJ' home state. It was well known that JFK and LBJ had a poor relationship, LBJ being picked to get the southern vote.
Your silliness is amusing, but dumb. Ever read a good book on the subject?? Or is that too difficult for a dummy like you??
So let's talk about the skeltons in Bush's closet.
Start with explaining why the Bin Ladens were able to fly out of the USA after 9-11, at a time when all civilian air flights had been cancelled??

MSN - A lot has changed about food stamps during the past few years. For one, the program is currently called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and it has made buying groceries much easier by providing debit-style cards.

But another aspect has changed even more dramatically: The number of Americans tapping into the social-welfare program is soaring.

Enrollment in SNAP has surged 70% since 2008, reaching a record 47.8 million Americans in December.

Even more shocking, that means 15% of the country receives the benefits, nearly double the rate as in 1975, when the U.S. suffered from soaring inflation, a recession and an oil crisis.

What we should really be saying is, "Oh SNAP! Did MSN just report that??"

Since you've never grown up, I might understand how the concept of growth would be something foreign to you. But you really should try it sometime. You might like it.

Rand Paul Endorses Mitch McConnell, Deals Blow To Potential Tea Party Challenge
"Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) endorsed the reelection campaign of fellow Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday, the Senate minority leader's campaign manager told the Daily Caller, in the latest sign of a crystallizing partnership between the two Republicans.
During his 2010 Senate campaign, Paul latched on to the tea party movement, repeatedly taking aim at McConnell and the Republican establishment. McConnell had initially supported Paul's primary opponent, former Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson. While the Senate minority leader supported Paul after he won the contest, the son of former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) maintained that he'd be a persistent thorn in McConnell's side.
But Paul's endorsement shows that the freshman senator's political calculations have changed since coming to Washington. With Kentucky tea party leaders champing at the bit to take advantage of polling that has shown McConnell particularly vulnerable to a challenge this election cycle, Paul has decided to abandon the forces that helped propel him to victory."

Rand Paul used the Teabaggers to get elected. Now he's becoming part of the establishment.
Teabaggers are such fools!!
