The closest you can get to real pizza here, from a technical perspective, is Venezia's. There used to be another place, a little hole in the wall joint up here in Rio Rancho, A.K. Fratelli's, but it's sadly gone the way of the Dodo. (Thursday Dec 5 | post #4)
IF it's true, he not only deserves to serve time himself, but in general population, and the other inmates need to be told why he's serving time. See how he likes it when the tables are turned. (Thursday Nov 28 | post #4)
I couldn't find my menorah, and none of the normal haunts had them in town (at least, not made in China), so I've decided to make one this year, for next, using a base of almond wood, and a frame of sterling silver and 14kt yellow gold accents. (Thursday Nov 28 | post #5)
Joey, lying is a sin in your particular boogeyman's eyes. Put on your big boy pants, or piss off. (Monday Nov 25 | post #32)

The one and only mass transit system that does is in China. No other system even comes close to breaking even. (Friday Nov 22 | post #16)
What duress were you under when you signed the contract, Joseph? Don't bitch that you don't like a contract that you didn't bother to read. (Friday Nov 22 | post #12)
Hot news flash,*most* mass transit systems like this NEVER, EVER break even. It's called the "Farebox Recovery Ratio." I could go into a lot of detail on it, but I am in a hurry right now, so I'll just link you to Wiki's article on it. http://en.wikipedi a.org/wiki/Farebox _recovery_ratio There are bigger things than direct income.

*sigh* Okay, again it is, then. First of all, if "pro-lifers " want to be taken seriously, they need to stop calling abortion "murder. " Murder is a legal concept, and since abortion IS LEGAL, it cannot be considered murder. Is it killing? Yes, but nobody is denying that. But is the state executing a convicted killer also murder? That is such a basic and simple concept that it blows my mind that they cannot grasp it. And to all those who would ban abortion, I have two simple questions for you. 1. Would you force a woman who was a victim of rape or incest to carry the fetus to term? Consider this carefully, because if you would force a victim to carry the fetus to term, you are forcing your power on her. Thus, you are no better than the rapist. 2. Who would you sentence to death for abortion? The mother (and since the father contributed, he can be given the same sentence as the mother), or the doctor? Or, if the death penalty is too much for you, which would you put in prison for life with no possibility for parole? Remember, in the US, an accomplice to murder can be sentenced the same as the murderer. So that means the doctor, the nurse, the clerk who checked her in, the father, etc., can all be put to death, if you consider abortion to be murder. Now that I have your attention, here are some real-world abortion statistics: http://www.johnsto nsarchive.net/poli cy/abortion/abreas ons.html The historical percentage of women who have abortion due to rape is about 1%, which isn't really complete, when you consider that another 11% were listed as "too young." In America, that tends to mean under 17, which makes it statutory rape. Add in the 6% where there are health concerns for either the mother or fetus, and you are up to 18%. That's 18% of abortions that are not irresponsible. Throw in the 21% that can't afford to have a baby (unless you want to see, and pay for them all to be on welfare, that is), and you are up to 39%. It gets really interesting when you read the amount of women having abortions that did use contraceptive: 53.6%. Which brings me back to what I say every time this non-issue comes up. If you don't like it, don't have one. Otherwise, stay out of other people's business. http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=wHjsa EK4vnw (Wednesday Nov 20 | post #44)
You're slipping back into character, Joey. Every time your ilk loses a legal battle you get pissy, just like this time. Might want to consider taking a few days off the site. (Wednesday Nov 20 | post #14)

Lying is a sin in the eyes of your bogeyman, Jojo. Enjoy the pit. Who'd you piss off enough to merit threats from this time? (Tuesday Nov 12 | post #182)
JosephOne, aka. Knightmare did you piss off even more people under your old "new" name? Because we all know it's you. (Monday Nov 11 | post #147)
