Evolution vs Creationism/Intelligent Design
Posted: 1/21/2012 9:46:05 AM
Teaching ID as a legitimate opposing view to evolution is like teaching holocaust denial as the legitimate opposing view to genuine history.

What is evil?
Posted: 1/20/2012 11:02:01 PM
There is only good & bad. Evil is a word used by religions to describe people who don't follow the same mythology as they do.

How Would You Fix CA?
Posted: 1/20/2012 10:48:17 PM
Strange thing about illegals in Califailure & the locals not being willing to do the jobs.. They said the same thing about Alabama which just passed new immigration laws...The illegals left, the locals picked up the slack & the jobless rate actually dropped.... So that "the locals won't do those jobs" line is complete BS...

It's coming......

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

Done it loads of times, never failed to find what I was looking for. My kid was about 7 the first time she saw me do it & called BS..... Then I had her try on another part of the property & she nailed it first try... Told her it was sorcery & as she could do it as well she must be a witch.

"I'm real/Looking for someone real".. & every pic on their profile is a heavily airbrushed professional studio pic that obviously bears NO resemblance whatsoever to the *real* person they claim to be.

Ditto home photoshopped pics that make the person look like a victim that Michael Jacksons plastic surgeon practiced on while they were still in med school and/or really hungover ...

After the Northridge quake back in '94 it took me a while to get out of the house. Just as I got outside a neighbor across the street fired up his RV & hit the floodlights he had mounted on it. One of them was pointed directly on his neighbors lawn where I was treated to the sight of his 80+yo neighbors completely naked.
I was almost tempted to run back into the house that it took me damn near 15 minutes to get out of....

Two things that astronomers are wrong about
Posted: 7/19/2011 10:15:54 PM
Mid-Summers day is June 21st, so in North America on the day Summer begins, the rest of the northern hemisphere has already been celebrating Summer for quite a few weeks,

& Dec 21st is Mid Winters day..

Does GOD exist....
Posted: 6/24/2011 1:05:59 PM
It seems that some people have a problem telling the difference between statements like:

I don't believe there is a god

and:

I believe there is no god

So comments like this:
"Your belief that God doesn't exist is a belief"

Only apply to people who state "I believe there is no god"

People stating that they don't have a belief can't therefore be a belief at all, anymore than a complete lack of apples is in fact, a bag of apples.

Seriously? Are you just here to troll the forum? I had a HD.. owned it for 3 months. It was the most dangerous bike I've ever ridden. No power, no brakes, handled like a pig on rollerskates, over weight, over hyped & WAY over priced. You couldn't get me to ride another if they gave them away for free.

And just for the record: I won't ride any other cruisers either, no matter who makes them.

Excuse me? I don't have a sport bike in my profile. I don't do the "looks like monkey fu*king a football" style of riding or the Cruiser/Buick/rolling roadblock style either.
Sport bikes are too uncomfortable unless you're only going to the end of your driveway & the entire cruiser thing has the mentality of people who think the epitome of car design/performance/brakes & safety was the '55 Buick. Why the hell would anyone want a bike that runs out of ground clearance & puts you in the ditch on a bend that you can't even negotiate at LESS than the posted speed limit?

Health care
Posted: 3/22/2010 10:59:45 AM
What amazes me is how many gullible people now think we all have health care.. when in fact what just happened is that 0bama made it illegal to not have health insurance.... & the fine for not having it is $700...

Great, who's paying my $700 fine?

All those people who can't afford/don't want insurance now have to come up with $700 to pay the fine... I'm guesssing the majority of those people are the same blithering idiots who voted for 0bama...

Anyone know about a bike called a Vincent? In the early '50's it was probably the fastest thing on two wheels. I saw a picture of Jay Leno's Black Shadow, and nothing looks cooler. Of course, you could probably get a nice house for less money. I can still ride one in my dreams, though--I'd keep it in the garage next to my imaginary 426 Hemi Cuda.

The California Collapse
Posted: 5/20/2009 9:52:39 PM

So what, specifically, would you slash from government costs? Do you just ignore infrastructure? Cut taxes to the bone for the rich and corporations and hope there will be some kind of "trickle-down"? Cut all of those nasty social programs that try to minimize the plight of the poor? the immigrant? the less-mentally-capable segment of our population?

Put an absolute stop to ANY spending of tax payers money on illegals AND their *anchor babies*.

But neither you nor any other citizen of this country NEEDS automatic weapons. If you feel some doubt about this, talk to the families of the 9 U.S. police officers gunned down by automatic weapons in the hands of the lunatic fringe in this last month

You may want to look up just how impossible it is to buy ANY *automatic* weapon & while you're at it, look up what weapons were actually used against the cops in those shootings.
Here's a start: Don't bother looking at the lies on the Brady Campaign website..

CALIF VEHICLE REGISTRATION...
Posted: 5/12/2009 10:33:25 PM

Let's enhance our state's revenue and cut costs by making the fines for employing illegal aliens substantial enough to be a real deterrent. That's the only way to effectively reduce demand for their labor and ensure that the state recovers at least some of the costs for the services those workers consume. We obviously aren't going to get much from the workers themselves.

The current fine is $10,000 per illegal alien, per day of employment...... So if you employ 10 of em for a week thats $500,000....When was the last time you heard of anyone being prosecuted & levied with those fines?

Apparently a 15 year old kid was seen Sunday night with what looked like a gun.... was told to drop it by officers............ the boy then pointed the toy plastic gun at the officer . Cop shot him. The boy, rushed to the hospital survived a direct hit to the torso. This officer will not be charged with anything and (if) this happened to a homeowner inside his own home being confronted by the same teen the same would apply to the homeowner.....

This happened in the worse possible part of Crimedale, sorry, Palmdale. WTF is a 15yo kid doing playing cops & robbers?? It's a frigging wonder he didn't die is a fusilade of gunfire from the gangbangers.
As for the wound he did receieve: the bullet just winged him under the left arm.
