Default Re: Hoo Haw!

Neither of the two existing parties want a third. If they do accept a third, they want it to be more like the other party so it sucks votes from their enemies. But yeah, it's legit. It's called Unity08 and their first ticket will be for the 08 election; they're going to run a Dem and a Pub together on the same ticket. They're just trying to disrupt the existing norm; they don't expect to establish a permanent 3rd party. They're using the internet as a base.



There was an article in the January Atlantic Monthly about it. It's very interesting.

The old lady's defence said she braked at 397 feet before hitting the other car. Read the article.

So they shot somebody removing the bullets from a gun? They should be jailed on the spot for being that stupid.

I just made up some calculations that say if she hit the back of the car going 59 mph and started stopping 397 feet before that, she must have been going 342 mph when she started stopping.

Default Re: Other interesting factoids

I always chuckle at the clowns I run into who are so upset about the "invasion of that foreign culture" from Mexico. They are usually saying this through a mouthful of microwaved burrito. Lots of them think they are cowboys, which they also seem to think is an Anglo invention.



Bigots make such easy targets.

Oh great. The coward moderator is at ot again.Now if you oppose activist judges you are a dipstick.



Who needs rule of law, eh? We're much better off with a ruling class of appointed dictators. My mistake.

"The "Stand your ground law" merely sets legal protections for someone exercising their right to self-defense."



Oh, I know all that - I just forgot to flag my post with the Irony Disclaimer. Also forgot the Tongue-in-cheek Disclaimer for the Liberal Republican part........
