No. You don't check your Constitutional rights at the door. He's still an American citizen. Just because you're coming back, it doesn't somehow erase that. Heck, they're trying to apply US Constitutional rights to illegal aliens. People that clearly have no Constitutional rights. They're not citizens to have those rights. Of course as always - if you're ignorant of the laws, they can do whatever they want.

The real joke here - Wonder what kind of porn he had on his laptop.

Comment Re:Unionize (Score 1) 348

Only stupid people unionize today. Even then, unions are largely unsuccessful. Dirty little secret is we don't need them anymore. That stuff was all put into law. Now they just plunder their rank and file and don't do squat. A union boss lives across the street from me. Larger house, money to burn.

Smart people use professional organizations like the IEEE.

If it's so obvious, how come it took them so long to figure it out? Not to mention, how much longer until the actual schools figure it out?

What's old is new again. I knew a sup from the Boston school system. He said the same thing, this was 40 years ago.

I remember we used to wonder why our burgers were like cardboard. Other stuff was so bad... to get us to eat the veggies. Resistance wasn't futile. We could also buy other things like oatmeal and chocolate cookies, even ice cream.

Besides, cube carrots, peas made great projectiles to the other table via spoon.

The Italians were trying to keep the Adriatic out of Venice way back in the 1300s. I suppose they had the very first indications of warming (as if, goes way back beyond that). So obviously it's not man. It's weather.

Still they overlook the villages they're finding as the ice retreats in Greenland and Iceland.

You need to look into history and admit your error. In the 1990s the Republicans took over congress and for the first time since the Dems controlled the Congress in the 1950s, they started to pay off the debt. So much so that we taxpayers actually got a rebate in the early 1990s. Look at what happened in 2009 with the new Obama and Dem controlled congress. Skyrocketing debt. More than 10 T so far.

As I said, admit your error.

Yes, and what happened 20 years ago? Jobs came back. Then they became cool again after he cleaned it up.

Flaming asshole, however he had vision.

So comment still applies and is timely. A year from now it'll be a captain obvious commercial unless they get some better leadership. I hope they do. I have a bunch of their equipment.

Stop smoking crack dude. Eisenhower is well to the right on that scale. Even Kennedy today would be considered a "radical right" guy. That's how the crazy lefties (hippies like John Kerry) have taken over the Democrat party. Boehner was instrumental in giving them what they want. Skyrocketing debt, well here's a graph for you . I dare you to look at them and realize what a train wreck he's presided over.

Keep it up, fudalism is just around the corner.
