Do you have some method of defending yourself against these when you go on your next trip to Kenya?:

Wildlife don't normally make their way into the main cities on Nairobi and Kisumu.  When I go to Kenya, I will always stay in the main city and not venture out into the safari.  My goal is to have lunch, not be lunch!

You better hit up the treadmill there Bushie.   Lions tend to pick the low hanging fruit for lunch.  Your fellow Kenyans can run for days.

How about if someone quotes you into this thread you just ignore it and don't act like a whiny child?

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

according to thearda.com there are 588,500 Orthodox Jews in NY

Here's a link that says 550,000-600,000 Orthodox Jews in all of North America.

http://www.thearda.com/rcms2010/r/s/36/rcms2010_36_state_name_2010.asp
Jews in NY
Orthodox Jews 588,500
Reform Jews 106,806
Conservative Jews 82,809
Reconstructionist Jews 5,991

next time look at the source of the "fact" you said it was only a letter to the editor in a magazine.

Those numbers don't even add up to half of 1,635,020. Now learn math.

Oh, for Dave's sake.

Don't argue about the thread.  Use the thread or lose the thread.

Do not respond to this post.  If you are tempted to respond to this post, consider hunting down some absurd, ignorant, or bad posts and posting those instead.

Guys, Dora the Explorer is little a show for 2-3 year olds. It's like if someone made a thread on here complaining about wearing diapers or drinking out of sippy cups or going to daycare.

Or like if somebody made a thread dedicated entirely to their opinions on another children's show, say something like "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" or some such thing.

Might belong in the good post thread as well, but the snap value is great.

PPP polls are extremely biased in favor of Democrats.  Much of their polling in the recent Wisconsin recall showed Tom Barrett narrowly beating Scott Walker.  Their most recent poll of the presidential election in Michigan (a swing state) has President Obama leading by 14 points, while a new poll from a Lansing-based pollster shows Mitt Romney leading in MI by 1 point.  Some of PPP's other polls have shown President Obama leading by 10 points or more in some other key swing states, such as Colorado, and there's no way he's that far ahead in those states.

You seem to have a fundamental misunderstanding of the English language. When a candidate, such as Scott Walker, is ahead by 3-5 points, we consider them to be "beating" their opponent, such as Tom Barrett. Also, in English, we consider the word "much" to mean "greater than 50%", not "1/5", as you seem to consider it to mean. According to current polling, Michigan is decidedly not a swing state. While 14 points may be a tad high, the polling average of all polls (not just one poll from EPIC/MRA) has Obama ahead by 6.8%, with Nate Silver's model projecting Obama winning by 9 points. 14 points, while high, is not outside of the realm of possibility. The Colorado poll (from April), while less excusable, is old, and the Purple Strategies, NBC/Marist, and Keating Research (NOT the Rassy) polls should be used instead, being more current.

You can't expect Lief to do things like thinking or analyzing. Imagine what it would do to his worldview.

Memphis' post belonged in here because it was witty and sharp.  Torie's dull paragraph responding to it, regardless of its validity, was irrelevant.  Sorry.

It wasn't really witty to begin with, since it was obviously moronic. Had that been intentional (merely to be funny) it'd have been ok, but knowing Memphis that's unlikely. But I guess one man's wit is another man's fart joke and all that.

If you're going to call the overwhelming majority of people since time immemorial stupid for not following your theological views, you might want to make sure you know what the words you are saying actually mean before you do so.

Well this is very kind of you. Thanks Senators.
It's nice to have you around again, even if only temporarily. Smiley



Thank you Senate for getting this passed. I can sleep in peace knowing that partisan hackery has been overwritten.

Mondale was too hackish for you. So you rename it after someone who supports a Communist coup here in Atlasia. Whether it's this, or the time you said you strangled a cat, I really don't think I'll ever understand just what goes through your head. But I don't want to, as I imagine it is absolutely terrifying.

No prizes for guessing who this was aimed at:

Out of curiosity, is there any level of education that you actually support, considering your blistering hatred for public schoolteachers and belief that university professors are 'wacky'? If not, why are you able to compose English at even the level that you are, and do you realize that it's somewhat hypocritical to do so?

The Medicaid expansion would have offered health insurance coverage to 16 million people. Now states apparently can make up their own minds whether or not to accept the expansion Ė and that means if Florida, Texas and other big states knock it back, then there will be millions of Americans who will miss out on the healthcare reforms.




Then they can simply go be a drain in some other state.

Just like you are to this forum.
