The amount of money it'd cost to give every student in America a free meal every day amounts to less than half of our yearly expenditure on the F-35 project. Just to put this in perspective.

Ernest's advice is probably the best - Fix-It and Forget-It can work wonders. Throw some stuff together in the morning, go to class and do whatever else it is you feel like doing that day, come home to a good amount of food that can easily be made into a meal with some rice and vegetables (something you can do in <10 minutes with a microwave). Bourbon chicken in the crock-pot with yellow rice was my parents' go-to meal on busy days when there wasn't much time for cooking dinner.

Also, Trader Joe's has some easy & cheap chicken dishes (orange & teriyaki are the most popular among my brothers) that can be fixed quickly with rice. One bag serves three teenagers, so it should last you a few days. Not sure how far away you are from their unofficial Vancouver location (I know their prices are usually a few bucks higher too).

The Vrije Alliantie suggests having a decentralized presidency, along the lines of our constituent republic of Bolivia or South Africa.

I could get on board with the Bolivian model - the capital somewhere like Cochabamba, but with government functions largely occurring somewhere like Buenos Aires.

Erika expected to weaken down to a depression, come onshore around Sarasota.

The Foreign Office is based in Santiago de Chile (on a temporary basis); significant infrastructure improvements, including the addition of international flights, will be necessary to make Cochabamba a sufficient capital city.

Last I heard it is heading straight for my hometown. I am eight hours away in Tally, so I will be missing out on the first hurricane to hit us in ten years.

Track's shifting back towards me (and, from there, on to you), but they're also saying it'll only be a TS by the time it hits.

The man used to be a reporter here in Tallahassee, where he was fired. He seems to have been quite a loose cannon.

And yet he was still able to get a gun.

Do you think a stricter gun law would have stopped this?  Sorry, but I think that's completely emotion-based and naive.

Of course there are types of stricter gun laws that would have stopped this.

Of course none of them are remotely constitutional and would have only prevented this from being a "shooting" and instead made it a stabbing. This was targeted at two people, it wasn't a mass shooting. He used a handgun (something he, as a non-felon and person who was not adjudicated mentally ill, had a constitutional right to) against unarmed people with no one else around to stop him. No one that worked with him thought he was violently mentally ill, if those coworkers being interviewed are to be believed; they just thought he was overly litigious and had a temper.

If there was a case that cried out for some kind of further gun regulation, this ain't it. It isn't Sandy Hook. The media outlets using this tragedy to push for more gun control just reveal themselves to be what they are: people who get excited when these things happen because they can use it to score points for their side.

I mean, if you want to be technical, no specific type of gun is protected.

Heller outlined the types of weapons that could not be banned, and McDonald applied the same standard nationwide. A person has a right to any gun in common use for lawful purposes (the ruling considered self-defense as lawful). There can be restrictions, but not a prohibition. Handguns were the type of gun at issue in the case, and therefore obviously covered. This guy used a Glock semi-automatic handgun after passing a background check; doesn't get much more common....

Your argument is about what the law of the United States currently is under this court's interpretation of the Constitution. Everybody else in this thread is talking about what the law should be. There's a difference.

My priority at this time is drafting legislation to clarify the organization of our armed forces, as well as establishing relations with our northern neighbor.

92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: GOP or Dems: Doomed if they win in '16 on: August 25, 2015, 09:42:44 pm
So, another big picture to look at here is after the current slow rebound of the economy we are due for a correction hear sometime before ~2020ish. This is agree'd on by many big economists to expect this sort of default in the next 4-6 years, so whoever win's in '16 will definitely take some heat for another likely minor recession. Which the other party will capitalize on in the 2020 elections.

This is not true and so this is a silly discussion.
93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which of these people is the most likely to gain a lot of support? on: August 25, 2015, 09:40:11 pm
Graham is not running for President (he's running to push his foreign policy views), Pataki's trying to play for a space already occupied by a number of quasi-moderate Republicans, Perry's dropping out soon, and who's Jim Gilmore? That leaves Santorum and Jindal. Santorum strikes me as someone who has more of a popular base among the Iowan grassroots, so I'll go with him.

I might buy a ticket to revel in being eighteen now, but it's not something that really appeals to me.
95  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Alan Grayson vs Patrick Murphy Florida democratic primaries on: August 25, 2015, 05:50:23 pm
I'll be voting for Murphy in the primary. I'd definitely prefer Jolly, and possibly some of the other Republicans, over Grayson - the long-term damage to the FDP caused by Grayson becoming its public face is probably a lot worse than one more GOP Senator.

But then who'll work at the Chinese takeouts? As if they're on the books, as is.

Lol. They would turn into West Virginian take outs I imagine. Cheesy What kind of food do they even eat in those Appalachian mountains? Some kind of twerk to soul food?



I know that soul food is the rubber stamp of Louisiana and Mississippi, yet I have no clue whatsoever what people are eating in West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee to be perfectly honest. Would you care to enlighten me? Smiley

A tweak is an adjustment or modification to something. Twerk is a verb referring to a type of sexually provocative dancing.

Anyways, folks in Appalachia (which is West Virginia, but only the eastern parts of Kentucky and Tennessee - someone from Memphis or Louisville would have no idea what you're talking about if you called them Appalachian) eat foods like chicken 'n dumplins, stack cakes, fried apple pies, fried apples, biscuits and gravy, that kinda stuff.

Potami or Syriza, depending on whichever more needs my vote. All the other options on the center or left are either far too far to the left for me (LAE, KKE, ANTRSYA), or are generally pathetic (Papandreou personality cult KIDISO, the shattered remnants of PASOK, and whatever the hell ED is).
