HER GOING TO YOUR PLACE IS NOT CONSENT FOR SEX, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

I strongly doubt the world will end in the next ten years. But if it did, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the turning point was the day a bunch of dinguses on an Internet message board pushed a man who can cannot successfully run his own life into a position running one of the largest companies in America

I can't believe that having to hear a girl actually say "yes" is such a burden.

Well according to this law, saying "no" is a huge burden. Both parties need to make themselves clear.

IF CONSENT IS NOT CLEAR YOU DO NOT GET TO BANG THE GIRL ANYWAY

The passport gained a lot more importance as a universal ID document in the post-9/11 days. I don't have any immediate plans to travel internationally, but I do have a passport. It makes dealing with the DMV a lot easier.

Everyone here thinks having Bushie in a management position would be a good idea. Huh.

New Jersey's state legislative districts were designed by Democrats to be as non-competitive as possible. There's virtually no room for Republicans to gain seats.

Access to information is more equalized than ever before.

As unfortunately is access to misinformation. The effect of which is increasingly disturbing.

Prior to the Internet, misinformation was the only type of information many people were getting. Besides, being able to tell fact from fiction online is an acquired skill.

Most minimum wage workers are more industrious, more competent, and more reliable than you. Your condescending attitude toward their work (and, it seems, toward any work that isn't white collar) is both unjustifiable and an obstacle to your own success. Why do you deserve better than they do? Why are you more valuable than they are?

I'm not purposefully trying to put down their value in society.  I'm just saying I can't survive on minimum wage.  I need at least $11 or $12 an hour to even have a shot at paying my bills.

You don't have skills or a work ethic that merits more than minimum wage.

I disagree on the skills, but I will agree that my resume is not worth much more than minimum wage, but it doesn't mean I should stick to low-wage jobs.

You quit your CAD education early, got a sub-par grade, refuse to bone up on your CAD skills on your own, made tons of mistakes in your CAD drawings, and are about to be fired from an entry-level CAD position from what sounds to be an otherwise forgiving small business because you lack the bare minimum level of ability.

You don't have the skill. Period.

The real issue here is that the U.S. nuclear arsenal is dangerously outdated. Like, we're talking 1960s era technology. We can either dismantle them all -- which, of course, no country in the world would ever do -- or upgrade the systems that control these potentially world-ending bombs. Doing nothing is dangerous.

Yeah, Corbett slashed school funding and has been the oil and gas industry's best friend; Wolf has promised to restore education funding by taxing oil and gas interests. Safe D.

Having to see the woman who was raped constantly remind you that she was raped is pretty uncomfortable. Still, it has to be more comfortable than being raped and not having authorities care enough to do anything about it.
Thank You.

What do you suggest be done?

Just always take complainants word as gospel and side with the accuser regardless of any evidence, of course.

What can be done? We can start by addressing this bullsh*t notion that false rape accusations are a major problem in this country, and that somehow rape is falsely claimed at a race far outpacing the rate of false accusations of other crimes. Cause, you know, those bitches.

Fact: The United States Justice Department says false accusations "are estimated to occur at the low rate of two percent -- similar to the rate of false accusations for other violent crimes." Meanwhile, according to Justice Department data, 97 of every 100 rapists receive absolutely no punishment.

The idea that someone would go this far over a false accusation doesn't make logical sense to me.

is civil engineering really the 'easiest' engineering field?

When I went to school, it was definitely the lowest paying. Which is ironic, considering that most civil engineers need to pass a rather difficult certification exam that other, higher paid engineers don't.

The reporter for KTVA news in Anchorage, Alaska recently did a story on marijuana legalization in her state. During the live broadcast, the reporter revealed that she, herself, is the owner of Alaska Cannabis Club, the only medical marijuana club in the state. And that she's dedicating herself to fighting for legalization, and ... well, you know, f*** it.
