What is the penalty for employing illegals. It depends, but usually fines. Its unlikely any penalty would occur for first time or one-off instances. If its widespread and organized management and owners can go to jail like we've seen in the meat packing industries in the Midwest. Interestingly Trum...Jump to post
Something I've never understood is that we hear so many different stories about people who die in their homes peacefully from carbon monoxide poisoning or while camping from propane poisoning. Why isn't something like that employed? Put them to sleep and then flood the room with carbon monoxide. Wh...Jump to post
Flighty, In the US two party system a third party candidate will not and cannot ever win the presidential election. All a third party candidate can do is split the vote of the party which holds the most similarity to the third party candidate, giving the election to the other side. I agree with thi...Jump to post
“Yes, we wouldn’t want anyone from the south or the Hudson River having any powers, now would we?” Precisely. Not when their regressive beliefs have devastating consequences for the most vulnerable citizens. How can we go about denying them the right to vote though? If we can't do it legally how ca...Jump to post
Look to his supporters and the voters , they actually support this man obviously. I find him despicable, the epitome of the well dressed Red Neck. It may well be regional, my opinion. Yes, we wouldn’t want ANYONE from south of the Hudson River having any powers, now would we? Like my wife, you prob...Jump to post
The purpose of the SWAT team was to get in before he could destroy all the evidence, it was not a "grand show"; in fact it was supposed to have taken place out of the limelight. Muller has eschewed publicity from day one of his tenure. Also, bail is not intended to be a form of punishment...Jump to post
You guys should remember that the last time he lost the popular vote; he won by pure luck. The election was effectively decided by 107,000 people in three states. I believe a lot of people voted for him because they assumed he would lose but they wanted to register a protest vote to send Hillary a ...Jump to post
He's not hated by the people who matter and his opponents he's running against are less popular than he is. He brings back the bacon for his state and has been an extremely effective leader in the Senate believe it or not. He's navigated dealing with Trump and the Tea Party (when they were a thing) ...Jump to post
The Mods have the tools for this. They could block five users and eliminate 70% of the problem, and then many of the rest would get with the program. It's not true that all posts are good posts. The value of a.net -- call it signal to noise ratio -- has declined precipitously. It is if you're Verti...Jump to post
Its amazing the big time fancy developer failed at the ONE THING that involved building actual structures.
Business as usual though.
Unless you're fairly overweight 15 pounds in 2 months isn't that bad as long as you can maintain that loss. The only thing you need to know is consuming less calories than you burn in a day. What you eat and when you eat really doesn't matter. That is the only secret to losing weight. Start reading ...Jump to post
I replied to your reply here last night, another mysterious disappearance??? What the hell! Must be another "glitch" in the forums software. They've been working on the bugs for the last few years so just give them some time to figure things out. Its not like the developers of the site ow...Jump to post
All this talk of violence against the orange one is disgusting. I refuse to believe he is the rightful leader of the United States. He is no leader at all. There is no doubt in my mind, and many others, that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to install him. He has no problem letting Russian ol...Jump to post
I do not think it is too much to ask to be told if we violate a rule. You're being way to hard on them. Don't forget they're all volunteers working for the greater good while burning the midnight oil so we can all have a wonderful, safe place to talk about certain things they deem acceptable withou...Jump to post
I don't know what I'm more disgusted at: how terrible of a spy Trump is turning out to be or that our foe Russia is so bad at picking them.Jump to post
Another reply from me disappeared on this subject, first an entire thread and then a reply. Mysterious!!! Some of us have engaged with the mods on this. It seems there is some combination of mods policing threads and forum glitches that is resulting in threads and posts disappearing without the sta...Jump to post

Apparently this woman is a Native American, has been in the facility since she was 2-3 years old, has paraplegia, seizure disorders and respiratory problems, likely a 'ward of the state' to use the common legal term, so her care paid for by the state medicaid program. https://www.yahoo.com/entertai...Jump to post
People need to realize that the younger generation is going to start making their way into our government. Time to stop being an old crow and start accepting that the 80 and 90 year olds are going to have to make way for the 20 somethings and 30 somethings. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an example of...Jump to post
Repeating it doesn’t make it true. The orange man baby does it constantly and you MAGA fan boys eat it up. Oh, and BTW, I posted links, so, yeah... A wall did wonders in San Diego. So you are just going to ignore the extra agents patrolling the border and the extra cameras with eyes on the border. ...Jump to post
Most drugs come through legal ports though. Personally, when I bring drugs back from Mexico I just put them in my luggage and all is good. What good does a wall do when almost all drugs come loaded in cars and trucks? Same can be said for those who overstay legal visas which makes up the vast major...Jump to post
It doesn’t matter what Trump has said. What matters is reality. Everyone recognizes that 5.7 billion will only pay for portions of a wall. It stands to reason that the portions will be placed in the most appropriate places. The Democrats have manufactured a crisis driven solely by their hatred for ...Jump to post
Brake linings are brake pads. Why didn't you just tell her "pads" since that's what they really are. Pads on discs and shoes on drums. Confused?

It prevents some things but not absolutely everything. Nobody has suggested otherwise. Nice straw man. Again, it worked fantastically well in San Diego. I'm not arguing against the wall in its entirety. There are some sections that are needed. The Democrats concede that the amount of money Trump is...Jump to post
A wall that will prevent some criminals from entering. It certainly worked in San Diego. Most drugs come through legal ports though.

A. That seems a bit steep for a battery. If you bought it at the dealership I can understand the markup. 6 years is a pretty good run in Minnesota. 2. I've never heard of brake linings. It has to be the lines. That seems like a reasonable price to me. Its not fun or easy to redo them. I personally w...Jump to post
So we shouldn’t vet anyone? . That’s just asinine. Who said we shouldn’t vet anyone. This shutdown is not about border security, it’s about the stupid wall.

I disagree. If someone is entitled to something and them exercising that right doesn't make them greedy or power hungry or anything. Anyone in that position wouldn't give up that cash. If they did they would be foolish. You might not be able to change the world but you can do much more good with 65...Jump to post
Add in a few foundations, setting up non-profits and and a billion dollars goes quick. What you are describing here really just amounts to clamoring for power. 64 billion isn't going to change the world anyway. I disagree.

I think it's possible that she might consider anything over the first billion or so she gets to be little other than an unneeded and unwanted responsibility.

I'm pretty solidly against the way the USA does it but I'm not opposed to it for the most heinous of criminals. I do think they should be seen by the public if they occur. If we're going to do this as a nation we should be aware of what we are doing and people should have to face that.Jump to post
Amy Barrett was seen circling the block. Two seperate tumors found in the lung of a non-smoker who's battled cancer in the past. This is not going to have a positive outcome. Scarier is that if she didn't fall they may have not found them until her next surveillance visit I wouldn't be surprised if...Jump to post
