Comment Cluttered but not dirty (Score 4, Insightful) 181

My house is cluttered because it's full of too much stuff, none of which I would be willing to throw away. By the time you've reached the age of sixty you've accumulated a lot of things: e.g. books - I own thousands of books and I'm not willing to part with any of them. I throw things away only when they're broken or worn out completely. I still use towels that are older than some of you. I could fill a small room with photographs of children and grandchildren. In fact, one spare bedroom is filled with toys for the grandkids to play with when they're visiting. Another spare bedroom is full of computers and computer parts + a couple of bookcases. Indoor plants have nearly taken over the kitchen. I think you get the picture.

But everything is clean; I can't stand filth.

My concerns would be:
Would the gun work if your hands were covered with dirt, grease, blood, or gloves? Would it work with either hand in case your trigger finger got injured in the fight? Could it be programmed for use by your friends or family?

It's a really bad idea to try to fix something that isn't broken. Only a fool tries to do that. Oh, that's right; we're talking Congress and most of them ARE fools, and worse, they're dangerous fools who think they know it all.

Comment Sometimes 'sorry' isn't enough (Score 2) 719

I want to see somebody fired and/or prosecuted. Who did this? Who told them to do it? How high up the chain of command did it go? Who is ultimately responsible? When are we going to see Congressional hearings?

No, 'sorry' is simply not going to cut it for crap like this. This country is not a third-world dictatorship, even if we do have a President who thinks it should be.

Heads should roll.
And sooner rather than later!!

Comment Re:Canada!~ (Score -1, Flamebait) 832

Ha! Here in the U.S. we have millions of babies born to mothers who weren't working when they got pregnant and who won't be working for years after they give birth. Nobody knows who the fathers are, but the babies will be taken care of by their rich uncle, Uncle Sam (aka taxpayers). Free food, free medical care, free cell phone, free housing, free utilities, etc. ad nauseum.

My belief is that anything over a month for mother or father is too much. It's like milking a sprained ankle for a month's sick leave. Get your asses back to work; we have millions of babies (other than yours) to help raise, and we need you paying taxes, not changing diapers.
