1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP attempting to purge 1 in 7 black voters from voter rolls on: Today at 02:03:18 pm
All of this is, of course, irrelevant to the fact that constricting voting is morally reprehensible.

You know as well as I know that enforcing citizenship restriction and single-vote-per-election are critical for a functioning democracy.

Whether or not Republicans are actually achieving these goals is open to interpretation, but attacking the underlying premise is a fool's errand.

Thing is, it's not very credible when the effects of the issues you describe are negligible. That'd be like investing resources in order to come up with ways to reduce traffic congestion in Wyoming.

Nonpartisanship is impossible (sane)

Ah but election administration is astonishingly neutral in a lot of countries. It's just a matter of wanting clean elections...

Yep. 

Well, I'm trying to be more respectable.  No coffee after 12:00 and no filing cabinet before 4:00.  It's that awkward, in-between period just now.  Believe it or not, I'm actually drinking bottled water at the moment.



You want to be careful with that. Not sure your stomach will tolerate it Smiley

I wonder if Bushie ever does?

Serious question?

The Braum's site lists their bacon cheeseburger at 730.  Plus fries and a couple cokes?  I'll ballpark that at 1400-1500.  Then 3 sloppy joes?  That's a lot, but probably no more than 400 each.  Hell, I'll give him 500 and then he still is at 2500-3000 for the day, so I don't think Our Dear Friend is lying with this one.  

Wait he said that what he stuffed himself with at Braum's was worth 2.000 alone, no? Then add the 1200 for the sloppy joes, and then another 500 or so for the sodas he just had to drink, and we're getting closer to 4000.

But more importantly, even if his calorie estimates were correct, they're utterly useless calories. Is it that difficult to eat real food?

The Braum's cheeseburger and extras were probably 2,000 total and I didn't put gobs of meat on the sloppy joes.  I just put enough to cover the bun, but not spill over.  I did have a couple regular cokes yesterday, so I may have had 2,500-3,000 calories.

You believe several sloppy joes and a couple of regular cokes are only 500-1000 calories?

Considering fuel taxes are laughably low as it is and that tying them to inflation does nothing but prevent them from becoming even more laughable..... NO obviously.

Have you napped? Had Braum's?

Yes and Yes and add sloppy jos for supper.

autocad?

No, unfortunately.  The AutoCAD computer is not set up, yet and even when it is later this week, we have company coming through for the first half of November, so I won't be able to use the computer with the AutoCAD until they all leave on November 15.

My sentiments exactly...

Why exactly does the presence of company make it impossible for you to prepare for the job for which you've claimed multiple times that you're going to actually work?

Bushie, since we're discussing religion at the moment...

Why is it you think God will always provide you with material things on Earth? You've said multiple times that just by having faith, God will certainly give you a job, for example. If this is the case, how do you explain....say....the millions of Christians in Africa (who have just as much faith as you) that are starving to death?

Please view this as an honest question in good faith and not as an attack or an attempt to mock your religious beliefs.

See, here is the problem. You say you know your flaws and want to work on them, etc. But then you characterize as insults and attacks people pointing these things out. Your life is getting worse, not better because you continue to act the same way. A lot of people here derive entertainment from your failures so they continue to encourage it. Others are saintly enough to actually try and give you constructive advice on how to improve. This latter group tends to be the most critical of you, which should tell you something.

Whether your job pays well is irrelevant, firstly because you'll soon lose it like you lose every other job. That's not due to bad luck it's because of who you are and you clearly won't change. Secondly, your lifestyle is so irresponsible I doubt any income could sustain you.

Lastly, your blasphemous abuse of God's name is a shame on Christianity. You use it for selfish and manipulative purposes and as an excuse to continue your behaviour. It's frankly offensive to real Christians and would probably be sufficient for sending you to hell even without all your other countless sins.

To be honest, I am actually excited where my life is right now.  Sure, its not where I had hoped it would be, but I can see good things in the very near future.

Why don't you give me a chance to prove myself on this job instead of already writing me off before I even begin?  Sound like a good idea?

Thank goodness for grace.  God's grace is all I need to cover EVERY sin I commit past, present, and future.  It is by God's grace that I will enter heaven.  I know for an absolute certainty that my home and my destination is heaven.  I do not have to worry about being separated from God for eternity in hell.  There's nothing, absolutely nothing, that can change that, because I can never lose my salvation no matter what I do.  The same goes for anyone who accepts Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.  The Baptist phrase "once saved, always saved" is guaranteed fact.  You can take it to the bank.

I'm not in a position to give you chances. I don't affect your life one way or the other. Given that you've failed every past job and refuse to change I can predict the same thing will happen now, but my opinion makes no difference to the outcome.

And you're not getting God's grace. You're following false prophets and you know how that ends!

How about we let God decide that?

You should take your own advice.
15  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should red light cameras be used to enforce traffic laws? on: October 27, 2014, 03:57:24 am
They tried them in Minneapolis, but I believe the MN Supreme Court found them to be unconstitutional. They said the person driving must be fined... Not the vehicle owner as is common since they photograph license plates

But this doesn't have to be the case. Speed and light cameras can also get a photograph of the driver.

You mean where I'm paid $20 an hour to do it? I'd consider it.

I'll just say I do find the way academic institutions (high schools, even universities) are so intensely connected to sporting events to be a tad strange.

The only person you can be absolutely certain about is yourself.

And from a Catholic perspective, I feel compelled to dispute this as well.

Bushie, will you at least cancel the cable package when you don't live there at all?

Realize every month that one entire week of your work will be spent on the rent and utilities at a place you don't live in at all. Perhaps more than a week when factoring in gas.



But how would he watch the University of Northeastern South Dakota take on Topeka College after those church meetings?

You can't expect a man to give up everything.

Thanks for the well wishes everybody.  I've learned a few lessons from last time that I will apply to this job.  I will practice on my CAD at home most evenings.  I will focus further attention to the detail.  I will relax and do my job.  They promise to fully train me rather than throw me out to the wolves immediately like I was at my previous company.

Happy you've found something.

But what training do you require? I thought that's what CADD school was for?
