Why not? Political parties press agents have freedom of the press. They're just not journalists.

Granting it's mostly down to population growth. But 'Das Kapital' is the most deadly book in history.

His ambition is to hit a human sized target at 1 mile. 3'' group at 2000 yards is something else again.

Lower lifetime tax/insurance revenue as well. Lower costs are only half the picture.

HornWumpus Re:Strange.. (252 comments)

Funny how government money gives people a chance, but private money makes them dependent.

I think the problem is with your thought processes.

The long term homeless poor, as opposed to the poor, are almost entirely made up of group #2.

HornWumpus Re:Which "Homeless?" (252 comments)

Panhandling nets a LOT more then that. But they have to be tough to keep the good spots or a stronger bum will come along and take their panhandling spot.

Panhandling with a borrowed baby nets NY lawyer money. There was one spot in sac where they shared a baby and pan-handled all day until CPS put a stop to it.

Homeless people don't own the parks.

Funny they never build their shanty towns far from liquor stores and drug dealers.

The solution is a shanty town far from working people and sources of drugs and booze. Perhaps somewhere in Utah. Then I'd be fine with letting them freeze and/or starve elsewhere.

They beg for money on the on ramp because they can beat-up the other homeless that want to beg on that on ramp.

_Never_ give money to those particular homeless.

The next time someone suggests increased taxes now, decreased spending tomorrow. We should demand the Grahm-Rudman spending cuts right fucking now!

The gun grabbers also don't grasp that the demographics in Australia was aging out of it's crime prone years. So you also need to compare the rates to similar nations that did not pass gun control laws.

De-milled tanks and fighter jets. No functional guns allowed.

Drop so much as a firecracker out of a model airplane and the FAA and ATF will want to have a long talk with you. Modelers use plastic 'bombs' filled with flour to stay legal.

3'' group at 2000 yards is about 9 seconds of arc. Very skeptical, even before looking at ballistic tables for a 223.

Escalators don't blow up. They fall open and grind you up like a slow motion wood chipper. Feet first.

Judge (Tech) Advice By Results

HornWumpus Re:Very nice article (162 comments)

Don't ask about my second job out of school.

First and second level sales managers also only make money when someone closes. If someone isn't a closer they want them out, not taking up a desk and sucking down coffee. The motivation in Baldwins speech was for 'the closers'. New guys have maybe 3 months to produce. There are always more wanna-be sales weasels. Only closers matter to the managers.

At least I was running their computers etc. Not actually selling. On the other hand I saw a $100,000 commish on a single sale. With more to come as the family made payments on their private mausoleum.
