I don't know Bushie's height, someone of his weight would likely need to eat over 3,000 calories per day to maintain current weight. He's probably not being honest in his count.

MyFitnessPal tracks based on your own estimates of how much you've eaten and what exactly you've eaten, and with you having entered everything, whether it's a small snack or a meal. It's very easy to estimate portion size incorrectly, *especially* if you're eating out and having the equivalent of 2-3 meals.

Coakley = worst MA Democratic candidate ever?

She might not even be in the top 3 in that category in the last 30 years... John Silber and Shannon O'Brien are up there, and I don't know if Mark Roosevelt ever had a chance but he lost by a landslide.

RINO Jolly waited until AFTER he got elected and AFTER
We at the grassroots level helped him win.

Supporting marriage equality does not make you a RINO.

He's a troll.

There are plenty of Republican gay men. Some factors that come into play are whether they've been successful enough in their own careers to have a Mitt Romney attitude toward ”the 47%," if they're from or live in areas where Republicanism is dominant (like Dallas), if they're Ayn Rand fanboys. They didn't consider gay rights as a voting issue because they felt it didn't make a difference which party was in charge (easier to say when Obama opposed gay marriage) or they have enough money to feel insulated from any difficulties in being gay.

Many keep quiet about their politics because they don't want to have to deal with pointless arguments.

All things considered, things are about to get fun at work.  Outbound is tough, but it's doable even for my personality type.  It's not a job I'll have forever, but it can last me until I get a CAD job.  I will start looking when I get home tomorrow night.  I just don't have to rush and worry.  I'm not desperate.  I am going to do all I can to keep this job until I start the new one.

How many sales have you made?

The case against Stevens looked more damning before the election than it turned out to be.
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How in the world is Begich holding on so far? on: July 17, 2014, 10:42:55 am
The New York Times had an article a few weeks ago about how strongly Begich has worked the Alaskan Native community over the last few years, and is now staffing up for the election.

Why not both?  I'm the kind that believes that God grants people free will, including the freedom not to believe.  Bushie doesn't believe in free will.  He thinks it's God's will to order the bacon cheesburger instead of the double cheesburger, or when he loses his job or doesn't get selected, it was God's will for him not to have that job.  I find that thought process rather revolting.....I hope God's not mad I chose to make chicken salad for lunch instead of tuna, or under the Bushie Doctrine, God guided me to his choice.

I suppose I'm separating them because I don't have an opinion on a religious concept of free will and couldn't judge it, but I do have a view of it as a basic concept of behavior. I'm in good shape and track my eating and even then I see how powerless my brain can become if there's some treat within reach. I can tell myself not to eat it, but I'll still reach out and take it. I imagine the challenge is even worse for our friend and I don't know how to frame the idea of free will to be meaningful for him.

...as an excuse to continue acting in ways that you know are wrong and that you have the power of will to avoid.


Forgive me, I am not well-versed in the theology here. Are you referring to the "power of will" as a theological or a psychological concept?

Kentucky has two sort of big cities, WV has none.

If Tampa didn't have enough hotel rooms to house delegates close enough to the convention, Birmingham certainly doesn't.

Philly makes a lot of sense. It's a fantastic city for hosting conventions.

Imagine if Ted Yoho gains the rest of Gainesville? FL-3 would be just like GA-10, with a liberal college town represented by a Tea Party fanatic.

FL-5 is a clear gerrymander, one of the worst in the country in fact, but whats wrong with FL-10?

It's buried deep in the article:

Quote
Lewis commended District 10 for following the requirement that districts be compact but he noted that an appendage added late in the process was "drawn to benefit the Republican Party and the incumbent." He rejected claims by lawyers for the Legislature that a neighboring district was needed to be created to elected Hispanics and the appendage, which moved 80,000 voting age population out of Webster's district and another 71,000 into it, was needed to enable the partisan advantage.

When you force enable people to buy insurance, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the number of people that are uninsured...?

FTFY.

You all just won't believe anything I tell you, so why do I even bother?

A good question. Why do you bother trying to convince everyone here, if you know it's not going to be successful? Ok, let's stipulate that everyone here is treating you unfairly for no reason and refuses to believe you are 100% truthful in what you say. If that's true, why do you keep trying to make people here change their behavior and start believing you? If we've learned one thing from the Update, it's that compelling people to change their behavior over the Internet is not feasible. Stop wasting your time on people who won't take you at your word, and focus on your real friends in Oklahoma. None of us matter!

Do you refuse to believe me when I say I finished the course, plain and simple?

In some sense of the word "finished" which means you ended your involvement in the course, sure.

In the sense of "completed successfully and will be recognized as a graduate," which you'd like people to infer from your statement, that would be hard to square with everything else you've shared.

let's talk about the non-existent cadd certificate...

What's the point of asking him about this? I don't think there's any doubt what happened, and there's no benefit to needling him on it.

Do you buy this?  (yes or no is fine.  Smiley  )

As I said, there's no doubt about what happened. I think that's pretty clear. Smiley
