If your wife travels outside the US, and for whatever unfortunate reason gets stuck outside the US longer than six months, her permanent resident status maybe revoked permanently.


Yikes!  I did not know this.  And considering we do go back to Thailand (every 2 years) where it's possible that red shirt/yellow shirt political shenanigans could tie up the airport like back in 2010, this is something to think about.

Figures why?  Are you implying that you think a Jon Stewart interview is easy? 

Think Jim Cramer from CNBC's "Mad Money" thinks Stewart is an easy interview?

So you've said:  It's a wonder drug, it is healthy, it literally has no side effects when used "appropriately," high doses are healthy, kids should not use, those with developing brains shouldn't use.  But it "can be detrimental."  

This is comical.  lol  

I think I'll stick with Ablow's opinion over yours. 

This discussion of whether pot (or freakin' anything) is "healthy" or "harmless" is near meaningless.

Reminds me of the Katt Williams bit about weed where he questions why aspirin is legal but pot is not;  With aspirin, he points out, if you take 13 of those mofo's it'll be your last damn opposed to weed which is basically impossible to OD on.

Per little Katt, the principle effects of weed are:  Hungry, Happy, Sleepy.

so what exactly are you saying?  if there is a cheaper way to get something done they should be allowed to go ahead and do it? 

WOW.  that sounds VERY VERY familiar.  it's funny how that argument makes sense to you in this situation but doesn't when those evil AMERICAN corporations find more affordable raw materials and labor overseas.  then you quit being pragmatic and become an AMERICAN.

but for foreign people who don't legally live here you completely change your tune.  I just don't get it.

What I'm saying about this story pretty much amounts to "Whoop-de-doo".  (It's not important.)

Per the article, it says that DPS is having trouble finding bi-lingual teachers.  So to respond by slightly relaxing the credential requirements like we're talking about here (must be on track to be fully credentialed within one year) combined with the small scale of the program seems reasonable enough to qualify this issue as a WGAF-story (besides paranoid freaks Dario and SC, of course, lol).

The part I added about DPS just trying to save money is speculation on my part.  And, for the record, I don't think that's cool if that's what's happening.  Kinda curious as to why you think you know my personal stance on outsourcing by "evil American corporations" (lol) since I don't think I've ever written anything about that subject here on GB.

BTW, if, as you mentioned earlier, you have real knowledge of fully credentialed bi-lingual teachers who are looking for work and those folks are willing to move to Denver, then I can see why you might be annoyed by this story.  If not, though, "nothing to see here, move along". lol

This umpteenth thread topic of SC's reminds me of a funny thing I saw on Reddit recently. 

The (pretty good, imo) topic was "What was your worst I'm so fucked moment?" and one person (fatmama923) mentioned how, after working very hard to get into a nursing program, she realized that nursing was not for her after only one hour of doing hospital grunt work.   Below is her horrific story:

That's actually why I dropped out of nursing school. My professor in my first class made us do 5 hours of hospital grunt work for part of class credit. I. Was. Done. I didn't even make the first hour. I went the next day and dropped that class, and changed my major the next semester. I'm very thankful to him.

What did you see in that first hour??

Super morbidly obese patient was brought in complaining of sever abdominal and vaginal pain and high fever.

Doctor began palpating her abdomen and felt a mass in the lower right quadrant. She was too massive to fit in the ultrasound rooms, so they had to do everything there in the ER. The tech tried to do a regular ultrasound, but it wouldn't penetrate the 700lbs (literally) of fat. So she decided she would have to do a transvaginal ultrasound.

The doctor and about 30 nurses lift this tub of lard onto a table and somehow get her into stirupps. This was disgusting enough. Did I mention she was a landed whale? The tech started moving the folds of her thighs and her panniculus out of the way. One nursing student on each side to hold thigh flaps and one to hold stomach flab. I was the unlucky fucker charged with handing her tools. The doctor had left the room, of course. He told us to just holler when we figured out wtf was going on.

So we're yanking on this woman's fat rolls and finally, finally manage to start getting her vagina exposed. Oh. My. God. The smell. This is the most horrifying thing I've ever been exposed to before or since.

Now, I worked for a flower shop growing up. I've been to funeral homes. I've seen bodies in all states of decay. I've hunted. I've fished. My grandparents owned cattle, poultry, and pigs. I've rubbed deer urine all over my face. I would roll in cow shit before I went through this again.

Her inner thighs and the opening of her vagina were weeping this blackish-brown, thick, fluid. My classmates on either side of her promptly started gagging into their masks. The tech started screaming for me to run and get the peppermint oil. I dove across the theatre for the bottle, ran back, and drenched all our masks in the oil. Once we could all breathe again the tech told me to run for the doctor, that this was an emergency.

Ooook. I still have no idea what's going on. I can't see past the mountains of fat and the tech, but I do as I'm told. When I finally return with the doctor, my fellow nursing students were all huddled in the corner with the tech, who looked like she had aged 20 years in the 10 minutes it took me to come back with the doctor.

The doctor walked over and started asking the tech what the hell was going on. Keep in mind this fat tub of lard is still in the background screeching about how she wants to get down, and she's hungry, and when are we letting her go home. Somehow, somewhere this woman had found a man desperate enough to fuck her.

The mass in her abdomen? Was the remnants of a placenta. Her body had started rejecting the pregnancy, but because she was so overweight, she never knew she was pregnant, and never realized she was miscarrying. The baby had begun rotting inside her vaginal cavity and the placenta was just floating detached in her uterus.

They had to take her in for emergency surgery, scrape the remnants of the baby and the placenta out of her body and put her on iv antibiotics. I know she spent at least a week in the hospital. Past that I don't want to know and pray I never find out.

So that's my horror story of why I wimped out of nursing school in one day.

Tl;Dr - super fat lady has baby die in vagina. Smell makes everyone in the theatre want to die and makes me reevaluate my entire life.

This cur assaulted 13 women, another was charged with two felony counts of false imprisonment with violence and three misdemeanor counts of sexual battery involving four women. Those that turned a blind eye or tried to cover up should be tried as accomplices.

We'll probably see the usual pledge from the department to "train the officers".

no I don't think he is.  i bet there are some great teachers. 

but why are you so quick to jump to their defense? 

they're teaching in schools without the training and credentials that are required of American teachers.  if you're not an American, you don't have to follow the rules?  but if you are you do?  there's a lot of legal bilingual American teachers who need jobs.  and they're not easy to get.

Did everyone  read the article?  (Not surprised that Dario didn't, lol.)
According to the article, it's been difficult for the Denver Public School system to find qualified teachers who are bi-lingual.  So the state of Colorado has established an alternative teaching license that allows bi-lingual folks to work as teachers who are at the same time taking classes that would enable them to obtain their traditional teaching license(s) within one year and they're giving preference to people who were brought to this country as illegal aliens when they were minors if they also have clean criminal records.  Whoop-de-doo. 

If the above is true, this is no big deal because:
- The best, most credentialed teacher in the world is gonna have a hard time if he or she doesn't speak the same language as the students.
- Hiring folks who share the experiences of those they're teaching can only be good for the students who likely need wholesome role models they can identify with.
- A whopping 2 teachers have been hired so far and they say that plans to hire only about 10 more are in the works.

As someone else mentioned, this issue probably is really about money/salary.  I'm guessing you'd have to offer a lot of $ (comparatively) to a fully qualified and experienced bi-lingual teacher to live and teach in cold-ass Denver.  Probably a lot cheaper to use one of these intern-type folks.  (And, if they're only teaching the kids who currently have very little proficiency in English, it's probably OK, imo.)

Hey, you can call me every name in the book - but you're okay with breaking laws when you see fit.  Obama does the same thing, right, and he belongs in prison for it.

This guy is pissed that the govt USED to let his cattle graze on federal lands, and now they temporarily told him to leave one section of it, so he refused and made a stink and ended up resisting arrest and they brought out a sniper because, well, I'm guessing he was armed and he was screaming about some WACO shit?

Can't break laws when it feels good.  Change them, don't resort to being a criminal.

SC sympathizes with the rancher because the rancher is defying the court order out of love, I think.  (Also, the rancher happens to be white, lol.)

Can't be that bad if SC-type folks are allowed to make their noise all day long, though.

Funny story, if you're in the mood.  I heard this on a Thai/USA visa forum:

Back in the late days of the GWB admin, a US citizen and his Thai wife went to a parade (in TX, I think) where GWB was going to be passing through.  Well, near the street corner where they were standing were a couple of protestors being loud and waving anti-Bush signs.  The man thought nothing of it but his Thai woman became noticeably uncomfortable and began urgently telling her husband that she wanted to "klapp baan" (go home).  After unsuccessfully trying to find out what was wrong with her, he took her home where he got the whole story:  She was worried that government employees or sympathizers would soon be coming by to beat the shit out of those protestors and anyone else in the general vicinity because that's the it often happened in Thailand (under PM Taksin, especially).

Yes, educate yourself and stop gobbling barry's little nuts.

Higher Premiums....CHECK!!!!

People can't keep their doctors.....CHECK!!!

People find the best specialized hospitals are not covered.....CHECK!!!!

More treatment placed in the hands of nurses instead of a doctor.....CHECK!!!

Already quality of care decreasing because people directed to local clinics.....CHECK!!!!

Hundreds of millions of dollars spent on a faulty website and promotion of a program that insured, at best, 5% of uninsured.....FAILURE CHECK!!!

And on top of that, anyone who doesn't want the insurance, surprising that libtards would support this since they are big ON CHOICE, will get hit with a penalty.  You think that is better than before?

Tell me how many people lost everything and did not get care due to pre-existing conditions before crapcare?  HEHEHEHEEH!! A lot less than libtards claim.


Try to follow along:  If even 5% of the previously uninsured are now insured, that means that "Everything is worse" is false. 

And please, if you can, assign some sort of value to a person who can now get health coverage due to a pre-existing condition and compare that to the situation of someone who now has to pay more.  Can you do that? 

Kee-rist, even if you do suffer from a lack of empathy, can you at least intellectually understand that some might honestly think that helping the one condition is worth the extra cost to a bunch of others?

So if a deranged lunatic armed with a knife goes on a rampage and some innocent people are maimed, mutilated and killed- your reaction is-- these things happen, at least he didn't use a gun?

And you're accusing other people of having a biased world view?  Roll Eyes

Guns do not kill people. People kill people. Same thing with Knives, baseball bats and razor blades.  Mental illness and poor parenting need to be addressed in this country. Guns and sharp objects should remain as they are.

Hope this helps

I'm not clear on what's wrong with looking on the bright side by saying, "Thank god he didn't have a gun"?

Why not restrict access to deadly objects AND "address" mental illness and poor parenting?  Wouldn't that be the most effective?

(Before ya start ranting, let me point out that I'm pretty sure that both guns and knives WERE banned on that high school campus at the time of the knife-attack.) 
23  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Only Three Have Been Waterboarded by CIA on: April 10, 2014, 12:36:01 PM
its just funny to me that back in 2007 there were 10 threads a day on waterboarding.  it was an absolutely HUGE issue in the 2008 presidential campaign. 

Everyone cheered, some cried tears of joy, and everyone lauded Barack Obama as the ultimate humanitarian when he promised to close Guantanamo.

and he didn't and absolutely nothing has changed at Guantanamo.  so why is this issue kept so quiet now?  weird.  it's like its not as important an issue now.

I'm not so sure.  On pure liberal sites Obama's less-than-liberal actions are criticized but I think there's a feeling among libs that they don't want to add to all the anti-Obama noise if the reward is just to put some rightie in the WH. 

I'll tell you one thing, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that the Nobel committee wishes they could have their peace prize back...

The penalty for grazing cattle on Fed land is a 7.62 bullet to the head. Round up his cattle...dump them in his front lawn...ignore the 'range war" shit and that's the end of it. OR we can go the Obama out of control route and kill his family "see ruby ridge' and make it a goddam rally cry for every ultra far right winger to the folks on Prison planet.

If I hear what you're saying, I agree with it, mostly.  The government should be careful not to overreact and needlessly cause a tragedy here. 

Maybe it's a skewed version of how things are (that I get from the media I read/watch) but it unfortuately seems like de-escalation is becoming a lost art these days among government enforcers of all levels.

ďItís high time for the BLM to do its job and give the [endangered desert] tortoises and the Gold Butte area the protection they need and are legally entitled to,Ē senior Center for Biological Diversity scientist Rob Mrowka told the Mesquite Local News. ďAs the tortoises emerge from their winter sleep, they are finding their much-needed food consumed by cattle.Ē

I have raised cattle on that land, which is public land for the people of Clark County, all my life. Why I raise cattle there and why I can raise cattle there is because I have preemptive rights,Ē he asserted, explaining to TheBlaze that this includes the right to forage, too.

Furthermore, Bundy has argued that it is the United States trespassing on Clark County, Nev., land, not he, and that he is a better steward of the land. He points out that the manure from his cows fertilizes the soil, that heís built water sources for wildlife, and that his cattle prevent the vegetation from growing overly dense and creating a fire hazard.

What does "preemptive" mean in this context?  Has the rancher or his family ever actually owned the land in question?
