Bushie is a much easier problem to solve. Just cut him off for a few months until he understands the value of of a dollar.

I am leaning toward renewing my lease for at least another six months.  I have every intention to do just that unless I were to get a job in Oklahoma City before March 31.  I have until that date to make my official decision to either renew or vacate.  The new lease would start June 1.
This point got lost amid all the theological debates. Unbelievable.

Is the Tulsa apt in town or is it way out in the sticks also? Is Bushie likely to renew for another year? Last I heard, he was leaning toward it.

CAD is definitely still working out.  I am not giving up on it, yet.  Remember again, it was not my performance that cut the last job short.
So glad to hear that your chronic unemployment is a thing of the past Roll Eyes

You can also help by applying for jobs for which you are qualified. Ditch the CADD. It's not working out. Go get a job at a big box store, or drive for Uber or something realistic. This clinging to shady office job thing is out of control.

Is there some sort of KS/MO rivalry I was unaware of? A holdover from the John Brown days?

Were any of these applications for retail/grocery jobs?

So Bushie lost his job, THEN became a Republican?

Is he really trying to destroy his own interests?

If we had a god-fearing Christian in the White House, instead of this Muslim atheist Barak Hussein Obummer, maybe Bushie wouldn't have lost his job in the first place!
If it weren't for the atheist Muslim Kenyan, gas would be at $3/ gallon too! Why does Obummer hate America so much?

Because America is a Christian Nation, Smash. His Middle School Science class taught him that also. And only God can change that.

I would still like an answer to this:
Bushie, how do you feel about lead paint? Should businesses have the right to sell it and consumers the right to buy it or should President Obama tell the good people of Oklahoma what kind of paint they can buy for their own homes? The lead leaves a beautiful shiny color behind!

I'm going to skip the pro-bigotry comments, as other posters have already covered that ground and point out this absurdity.
We have a big black population in Oklahoma.
You most certainly do not. We have more of those people just here in my hometown than you have in your entire state.

I, for one, enjoy rehashing debates from the mid 20th century. We've done all the contemporary ones to death on here. Bushie, how do you feel about lead paint? Should businesses have the right to sell it and consumers the right to buy it or should President Obama tell the good people of Oklahoma what kind of paint they can buy for their own homes? The lead leaves a beautiful shiny color behind!

You never answered the question - should a bakery be allowed to refuse to make a wedding cake for black people?

If the business owner wants to assume the risk of bad publicity, then yes.

So you do want to repeal the 1964 Civil Rights law and replace it with something far weaker. At first you said food should be covered, but not a wedding cake (which is, in fact, food) because it is a luxury. Should luxury housing not be covered by the Fair Housing Act either? Of course, Mr. and Mrs Those People you may rent any home you can afford, so long as the landlord is ok with your skin color and BushOklahoma doesn't find it too luxurious for your needs. In any case, you still have not made the connection between Civil Rights laws in the current President who has passed exactly zero of them.

Bushie do you support the repeal of the 1964 Civil Rights Act?
And the Fair Housing Act of 1968? It says that property landlords (in most cases) must accept those people as tenants in their own properties whether they like it or not!

Perhaps I overreacted.  All I'm saying is business owners should not have to serve anyone and everyone that comes into their establishment.  They reap their own rewards.  Business owners have just as much right to turn me down if they so choose.  I'm not targeting the gay community exclusively.  I'm just thinking about truly free enterprise.  If people, of all colors, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations would stop getting so butt hurt over every little gust of wind that doesn't go their way, this world would be a lot better off and people could tolerate each other a whole lot better.  Again, religious people such as me are just as much to blame in getting butt hurt over every little thing as the non-religious community.  I will admit, I am just as much to blame, as well.  I am preaching to myself just as much, if not more, than anybody else.  So, don't act like I'm only targeting the gay community or pointing fingers.  I am not.  I am including everybody in this sermon, including myself.  As I tell those whom I have influence over, if you see me pointing a finger, just remember there are three more fingers pointing right back at me.

I don't think you overreacted. It's just full of immense complexity -- how do you balance the freedom of a business owner and the freedom of the individuals who want to buy his goods or services? At what point is it not OK for a business owner to say, "I don't want to serve you?" What reasons are justifiable?

Typically, people migrate to those businesses that mesh better with their needs, wants and societal / cultural point of view, ie: Target vs. Walmart, Whole Foods vs. Price Chopper, or the barbershop from "Friday" vs. Supercuts. But the catering-preferences of a business owner aren't always known ... so is it right that, say, a restaurant owner could ask you to leave because he didn't like your appearance, or your spousal choice, or your car?

It is a delicate balance to which there are no easy answers.  Not everyone can be happy at the same time.  It's just part of what makes us human and proves we are woven together differently.  I'll be honest, I have no idea where to draw the lines and I think anyone would be fooling themselves if they knew exactly where to draw the lines.  Things must change, that much is certain, but the question is how and where.  I cannot answer that.
Are you writing Thomas Friedman columns now?

Bushie, if you feel that strongly about being against Civil Rights Laws, the President to take issue with is Lyndon Johnson, not Barack Obama, who has passed exactly ZERO Civil Rights laws.

I wonder what Bushie's views are concerning the Obama birth certificate...
18  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update XX: A Darn Good Judge of My Financial Situation on: January 25, 2015, 06:58:09 pm
Bushie, are you under the impression that Obama has pushed for some sort of federal Gay Civil Rights law? Because he certainly has not. If a few states or munis have local laws, and some do, that has nothing to do with the President. Do you think photographers, bakers, whoever, should get to boycott mixed race weddings if they are opposed to those too? Shall we bring back Jim Crow altogether for those businesses that are opposed to all forms of race mixing?

You'd think somebody has to drive 30 miles each way to do anything would appreciate low gas prices. But, I guess as far as Bushie is concerned, it's $0/gallon no matter what.

What's a Tinder?
Now that the prudes have made speaking to women illegal, men must communicate to the fairer sex solely through the internet.

if by "men" you mean memphis and by "women" you mean everyone else, then i am fully in support of such a law
I'm sure with that your radiant personality, you have lines of people eager to engage you in polite conversation. These sorts of offputting attitides are exactly why so many people here are still virgins.

I don't see the problem with Tinder.

You mean by yelling at women on the street?  Did that ever lead to a date?
You're obviously missing some context for the joke.

Bushie what did you originally want to major in before you got sucked into e-commerce?

As a child, I wanted to major in meteorology at the University of Oklahoma.  Unfortunately, though, I did not have the proper ACT score to get into OU, so I had to go to a regional university.

You could have transferred to ou.

I probably could have, but I was having so much fun at Northwestern and I felt comfortable in the small town of Alva.
