As speculated,  US Pardon Attorney Ronald Rodgers, has resigned due to insubordination with the rumored plan.

I would smoke meth too if had nothing to do all day but sit around rural West Virginia.

I think that's why the legalization of marijuana nationwide is so important. People out there need some sort of drug. Honestly. Weed is by far the least dangerous.

I wish we had toplines so we could drop the 65+ sample since olds opinions don't matter.

I thought it was a food joint Bushie tried.  Sad

The story of Update would probably be best told as an animated series considering it's more weird aspects.

I like this show and I've recently been able to pinpoint why.  It's a modern show where family characters help each other and put others before themselves as opposed to ridicule them down to punchlines like Family Guy and the modern sitcom do constantly.  It doesn't have to be snide to be funny and it's a refreshing change.

I still enjoy my snide humor. I unabashedly still enjoy new episodes of Family Guy for a few good jokes (and Rick & Morty is the best new comedy on TV if you haven't seen it), but it's nice to relax with an episode of Bob's Burgers, too.

The sad fact is that McDowell County needs to downsize even more.  That's the biggest failure of our various anti-poverty programs, they fail to give people the assistance they need to successfully get out of communities whose economic reason for being has ended, yet they give them just enough to survive and produce another generation that will end up in the same trap their parents are in.   Back before coal mining began in the 1880s, the population of McDowell was under 5,000.  I don't think it needs to get that small, but if they transition to a rural tourism economy, they probably don't need but about 10,000 people in the county, less than half of what is there now.

It would incredibly hard, even in New Deal times, to sell people on the idea of a welfare program for helping people move to new cities.

We'll see, but I strongly doubt we see any sort of mass pardon or commutation before the 4th of November.

As is tradition for 2nd term Presidential pardons.

The U.S. Pardon Attorney is currently compiling a list of "hundreds, perhaps thousands."

We'll see.

Edibles are dangerous in that they take a lot longer to hit you so you don't think you're that high so you eat more and then an hour later you can barely see because you have such a big dopey smile on your face that you can't open your eyes.

Or least that's what I've heard.

He was white, too.

His parents must've been really, really poor.

Actually, Republicans are people who keep saying they're going to get on that diet and lose all that weight but never do.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update for Everyone II - Less Boring, More Whoring on: April 19, 2014, 04:55:17 pm
Got a call from a couple schools, asking me to come try out for the football team. So im going to Wazzu tomorrow, and UW on Tuesday. After that im heading to Olympia, to have lunch with my State Senator, and pick up my kids. Oh and as of today im officially engaged!

You're old enough to be engaged and have kids but young enough to still be trying out for college football teams? What's going on, son?
I was sexually abused by an older girl. That gave me my son, then my daughter was born because of a fling with a ex. Also my mother gave me permission to marry her.

Interesting premise. I can see it after the Update timeslot.

Have a first season pitch on my desk by Wednesday.

This last season of Girls was actually really, really good while South Park hasn't had a great season since Bush was still in office, so I'm voting Girls for right now and into the future.

I have it. The layout seemed pretty boring and I couldn't find many people I knew on it.

I only use it as part of using Google without them pestering me to join Google+.
18  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: ‘X-Men’ Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Assaulting Underage Boy on: April 18, 2014, 08:57:47 pm
While I think Singer is guilty of holding outrageous gay sex parties with young men, I don't think he's a rapist.

A 17 year old who willing goes to not just one of these things but apparently attended a few of Singer's (and apparently Roland Emmerich's) parties and did drugs every time probably should know what was going to happen to him. If he really felt in danger or exploited, he should've not attended or gone to the police after the first incident. The fact that he waited 15 years to do this says a lot to me, too.

He's probably just interested in money because his aspiring acting career didn't work out.

Has anybody tried eCigs?

I'm not a smoker but curious about them.

Which is a small proportion of the overall coverage increases.

The rest was attributable to private sector hiring and employer-provided care

So you admit the assertion that the law is a jobs killer is a lie?

8 million?

Excellent.

There are two aspects at play here: the band, and the government policy.

I am curious about both, equally.

Bicurious, for lack of a better term.
