  1. Yay, I was threatned with a formal warning for posting a real person's real name. How far these fora have fallen. "Fora" another four letter word that starts with F.
  2. I like short AV's. The tops of their heads make a handy place to sit a beer bottle.
  3. Foot Fall Free Fake Fame Four Fact Fail Feet Feat Fade Fido Fine Find Edit: Even though it has five letters I hate to leave out Fuchs.
  4. You forgot to add "Christian" to your bigoted statement.
  5. /me waves to Ima :matte-motes-sunglasses-1:

  7. Now you are doing double talk. The rich bribe the powerful government we have now. So depowering it will let them bribe the government? Without the power, there is no reason to bribe them. What power do the corporations have without the government empowering them? With free markets they have no power. Bill Gates can't force me to use Microsoft products. Steve Jobs can't make me buy Apple. It is the government that distorts markets leading to monopolies. For instance the last round of "consumer protection" laws in the US were supported by the big toy companies. They wanted the laws. The regulations put small competitors out of business. The regulations gutted the used children's book market. Without those regulations we would have more cometition. Oh, now that is funny. I will gladly pull all the US troops out of Germany, and every where else in the world. We should have done that after WW2, left you to the tender mercies of Stalin. I happen to like the medical care that the free market provides me. The rest of the world has been riding on our innovation, our improvements. Profit leads to advances. You cannot deny that.
  8. Can you eject from the group but not the land? Does the club announcement group own the land or is it held by a owners/employees group?
  9. You do realize that Hayek is calling for less government power, so your "legalized bribery" wouldn't have much effect. You only bribe those who have the power to grant you favors. Remove that power and you remove the favortism. Corporations have no power without the government giving it to them. Tell us Ish, what system should we use to order society?

  11. The vet who figures out how to spay and neuter the whole lot of them, except the vamps, will be the big winner.
  12. At least have the guts to come out and say what you mean.
  13. These are such amazing forums. Such a springtime fresh feeling when you visit them. Sometimes Moderators have a hard time on forums. We should not make their jobs hard. Vaccum cleaners Suck up dirt, much like our mods clean up the bad posts, leaving every thing happy. Malted milk balls, Whoopers, are often eaten by people when they post on a forum. I think the malted milk makes them happy. 
  14. Well said Ima. /me hands Ima some was imported from Brazil. :smileywink:
  15. Did anyone mention the Ballad of Dick and Jane?
  16. If you like it, it is good. If you don't, change the station. Ringo was the best Beatle. "Imagine" is a heap of low quality maunre. I turn the music off when that song comes on.

  18. Thus spoke Frank.................(insert dramatic music here)
  19. Vladi Hazelnut wrote: . Same with recording a phone call in real life, you have to tell the other party know you are recording it for it to be legal. This depends on your local laws. For much of the United States, only one party has to know that the call is being recorded, this can include the person recording the call. "Federal law allows recording of phone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted wiretapping statutes based on the federal law, although most also have extended the law to cover in-person conversations. Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party without informing the other parties that they are doing so. These laws are referred to as “one-party consent” statutes, and as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it. (Nevada also has a one-party consent statute, but the state Supreme Court has interpreted it as an all-party rule.) Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping. Regardless of the state, it is almost always illegal to record a conversation to which you are not a party, do not have consent to tape, and could not naturally overhear."  But since this is a private sand box we are playing in, we have to follow the rules of the Lab.
  20. It means that you need to think before you act. That actions have consequences. Something the OP apparently didn't think applied to them.
