  1. I was really happy to see the President on the frontpage of cnn today announcing that he's remedied one of the nation's most pressing issues. Climate change? Junk science and not a problem. Children without health care? It's their fault for not working hard enough.

     

    But congested air travel over the holidays. Now that is something warranting presidential attention. Mr. Bush's priorities are laudable.

     

    Another embarassment

     

     


  2. Do you see the big button on the top of threads that says "Rate this topic"?

     

    (You can't rate your own.)

     

    That rating system is fucked. What if you want to rate a thread as the suck?


  3. For some unknown reason,after seeing this post, I am able to discern both your race and party affiliation. I also see a large silver spoon in your past. You should be proud.

     

    Wow, you gleened democrat in an inter-racial marriage who enjoyed plastic spoons (occassionaly silver colored) during his single-parent, working class childhood? You seem really fucking astute.

     

    Despite the questionable application of black-face, that costume is pretty funny on account of McLooty's a bit of a cultural icon. If you can't laugh at the expense of someone who loots a box of Henikens in the wake of a natural disaster, what can you laugh at?


  4. I read the book and thought that he was a profoundly naive, narcissistic kid who was obsessed with his own righteousness, and the manner in which he treated his family was completely inexcusable.

     

    Really? You found someone else naive and narcissistic, and judged their actions as completely inexcusable? Wow, what a surprise . . . :rolleyes:


  5. 8 of 10 of my past love interests were married.

     

    3 brothers wives,best friend's wife,boss's wife.2 wife's sisters. women go for what they need , when they want it.multitaskers.they all are still married.

     

    Just to make sure that I'm not misinterpreting this statement - you are claiming to have had sex with three of your brother's wives, your best friend's wife, and two of your wife's sisters?

     

     

    I suspect incest may run deep in the V7 clan. At least that would explain some things.

  6. WTF?


    Oh, is this obvious to you? Why don't you read my Index flood TR. I not only got introduced into the insurance world, but also the world of FEMA and tax aftermaths of disasters. I am quite familiar with the system, thanks.

     

    Oh yeah, I remember that thread, so let me rephrase. Perhaps you've never been fucked in the ass by an insurance company in the wake of a natural disaster.

     

    I hope your insurance worked better than it did for other people I know.

  7. WTF?


    I thought we where talking about . . . those that chose not to get insurance?

     

    "Not covered" does not mean "not insured." That's my point.

     

    I believe it's pretty hard to own a home without insurance unless you own it outright (ie no mortgage).

  8. WTF?


    With all due respect and sympathy to your father, it was partially his responsibility for choosing to live so close to the ocean in a hurricane prone area.

     

    Yes, he's responsible for where he lives. However, he, like thousands of other homeowners, attempted to ameliorate the risk he assumed by paying exorbinant insurance premiums. This otherwise rational decision-making was corrupted by an underlying false assumption that the insurance would actually cover those risks.

     

     

  9. WTF?


    Arch,

     

    You've obviously never dealt with an insurance company in the wake of a natural disaster. People who are adequately covered are often denied coverage by how damage is characterized. For example, my dad's house in Florida was destroyed by a tidal surge attributable to hurricane Ivan. Because he had no roof damage (just installed a bomber new roof), USAA characterized the damage as "flood" rather than "hurricane," with the difference (among many) being depreciated compensation under the flood policy rather than full compensation under the hurricane policy. Additionally, flood insurance did not cover dislocation expenses, as the hurricane policy would.

     

    As a result, insurers were able to avoid properly compensating folks who were insured. That's where FEMA stepped in - helping people fucked by their insurers. Oh but wait, it's my dad's fault.

     

    Don't forget, the insurance profit strategy is two-fold: (1) collect premiums; (2) deny coverage.

     


  10. This is all nice, but what about

     

    Taco Trucks

     

    No doubt. Too many hamsters fluff Pepper Sisters but turn their noses up to good mexican.

     

    My favorite taco truck ever used to park way out on the Guide. That shiznit was the best, especially la salsa verde muy caliente.
