Bushie, weren't you proudly taking a multivitamin that wasn't prescription strength? What happened to that?

It's like literally any little thing that could improve his health he simply will not do.  Bewildering.

I've been taking them, but my doctor said I needed to take them with a full stomach, otherwise they just pass through.  I've just been taking them with my morning medicine regardless of whether I've had food or not.

So Morning Nachos then?

Pizza in the morning

Pizza in the evening

Pizza at suppertime

When pizza's on a bagel

You can eat pizza anytime

I understand the implications and dangers of high cholesterol.

No, you don't.

I know I've got to make a change, a real bonafide change.

No, you don't.

I'm going to try,

No, you won't.

... but I won't post my food choices on the forum that way I don't get clubbed by the forum and I don't lash out in anger and falsely accuse.

OK, meet you back here next week when you're seeking praise for gaining and losing the same 3 pounds again. Enjoy the nachos.

I wouldn't dismiss the chance it has of making the ballot, there are a lot of extremists out there and those extremists are good at framing ideas as something else in order to get them on the ballot.

It requires over 365,000 people to sign a paper and go on the record as supporting a "final solution" for gays.

No, it won't "make the ballot." No one thinks it will make the ballot except for the person who writes headlines and articles for that website to make them clickier.

I eat plenty of ground beef and I'm in terrific shape. Ground beef is a pretty good food choice so long as Bushie gets a decent enough grade, and IIRC his family usually chooses the lean 85 blend. (I prefer 90/10 for my burgers, but a lot of people use 70 -- ugh.) Besides, hamburger meat is always going to be healthier for you when you make from scratch at home.

Bushie's problem is sugar, not meat. Bushie needs more protein and less sugar. Fewer bowls of Trix, they're not helping.

    Wow, that's bad. I would seriously consider nullifying if I were on a jury in Alabama.

And the judge can just overrule your nullification! Fun state to face a court in.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Alabama: Where judges sentence criminals to death over a jury's wishes on: March 21, 2015, 10:35:00 pm
So apparently, Alabama has this super cool judicial override rule. If a jury decides that you should spend life in prison instead of being put to death, a judge can say, "no, you know what, the jury got it wrong, I say you die." And then you go to jail and you get put to death.

This is a thing that has happened over 100 times in Alabama. Alabama is one of only three states that allows judicial override, and is the only one that has done it in practice. Over a hundred times.

This seems like an incredibly unconstitutional thing. The U.S. Supreme Court has considered taking the issue on, but no dice so far.

10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: States where African-American candidates have a hard time winning statewide on: March 21, 2015, 05:18:44 pm
I think an African-American candidate would be able to win in every US state right now.

That candidate of course has to be in the right party though (GOP in the South and heavily-GOP states and Democratic in the Dem. states), run a good campaign and raise a good amount of cash.

Tim Scott for example didn't have much of a problem in South Carolina, it's just that a Democratic Black cannot win there.

Literally this. A REPUBLICAN Black candidate can win in the Deep South, a Democratic can't. That's why I love it when Democrats complain about how badly Obama lost the South and the white vote because of racism. Heck, Kerry lost white voters by the same margin and no one was complaining. It has much more to do with the fact that Obama is a liberal, pro-choice, pro gay marriage, pro gun control Democrat.

A black Republican candidate could win in "the South," but I strongly disagree that one can win in the "deep South." It was only 15 years ago that 40.5% of Alabama voted to keep its ban on interracial marriage.

Here's an article last year about how excited AL Republicans were to get eleven black candidates in the primary, including those seeking "county commission" and "Public Service commission." That's a really really really far stretch from having a statewide candidate for something.

I would assume Bushie is getting a big tax refund because, when employed, taxes were taken out of his check under the assumption that he'd have the job all twelve months.

Bushie should qualify for a small EITC, but will otherwise get most if not all the income tax withheld by his employer refunded to him. After all, you pay a 0% tax rate on your first $6200 of income or so thanks to the standard deduction.

As was stated before $10 an hour is not enough to cover all my expenses no matter how frugal I am.

You're hanging onto the super-duper Cox cable package though, right?

Even reducing that won't bring me into a surplus.

So I guess there's no point reducing it at all then.  Makes perfect sense.

You gotta waste money to make money.

10 an hour isn't that much. Any emergency can seriously hurt you, like car problems or medical. You don't have much room for error at all and it can be hard to build up a emergency fund.

Further consider that all of Bushie's day-to-day expenses, including rent, food, his new iPhone 6 Plus, unlimited calling plan, student loans and super deluxe cable package are footed by Papa Bushie. Anything he makes at [redacted] is thus "fun money," and will indeed go a long way toward improving Bushie's already lush unemployment lifestyle.

That freezer is so cold it could kill you pretty easy, so you have to know what you're looking for and kind of know where it is.

Grim foreshadowing, Bushie.

Never. As much as I strongly disagree with marijuana prohibition, I'll respect the law while it still exists.

Do you obey the speed limit, too?

Anyway, I was pretty straight edged throughout high school and college and didn't smoke for the first time until I was 25 or so. I'm glad I waited.
