126  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 10 reasons why Ronald Reagan was the worst president of our lifetime on: July 17, 2014, 08:38:22 AM
Link?  Looks like a pretty old article. 

Meaning that Reagan WAS one of the worst presidents when the article was written but has since been surpassed?

Or has new evidence come to light that what he's been accused of doing is a case of mistaken identity or sumthin'?

"ORLANDO Fla. (Reuters) - A third victim in an unexplained beating by a man wielding a baseball bat died on Wednesday"
"According to witnesses and police, Shannonís boyfriend James Earl Jones, 32, killed the three, then drowned himself in Lake Dora.
Jonesís father told police at the scene that his son was schizophrenic and was not taking his medication"

Some striking similarities to some of the shootings that have taken place.

A mentally unstable individual who is off their meds...

why is no one trying to force background checks on bats?

Why are bats not inherintly evil?


You know, FWIW,  it occurs to me that you'll probably get stopped if you try to carry a bat into certain establishments.  

I say this because I was once prevented from seeing a movie when I was a teen because my friend and I had ridden our skateboards there.  I was fucking pissed that they wouldn't let me in with the skateboard because I "might use it as a weapon".

Crickets from the Left.

I think I speak for the left when I say that this story definitely means that if one illegal has shown he'll commit murder then they all will and so they should all be herded into Texas' new Mashinator (referred to at 1:34 of the following vid):

lol.  Of all people.  lol.  You say some of the most absurd or incredibly uniformed things on this board. 

But I digress.  Like I said, if you want to know the numbers, do your own research. 

In terms of law enforcement costs, who the heck do you think is regulating the industry?  What happens when a business doesn't pay the taxes it owes?  What happens when someone doesn't have a properly regulated business? 

How old are you?  Do you have any experience in the real world? 

lol.  Which uniform do my absurd comments wear?  

(Hate to say I told ya so but I'm thinking that your typo has something to do with you making comments a little too quickly, lol.)

Yeah, I know I risk not getting any straight answers out of you since I poked a little fun at you but on the off chance that you're not in a sensitive mood tonight I'll try to engage you anyway:

Am I maybe misunderstanding you here?  Are you really saying that you think that MJ being legalized in Washington state is going to cost the taxpayers more than it will earn for them (via taxes)?

Just in terms of legal system expenditures it seems like the gov't should be coming out ahead since it will no longer be spending the money to prosecute most folks who use marijuana, right?

From your questions about expenses related to having folks make sure that folks in the new MJ biz follow the licensing and tax laws, I think you're overestimating those expenses.  If you aren't, and legalizing MJ in Washington IS costing the gov't more money than it earns, that seems like it'd be fairly big news and would be an easy thing for you to find a supporting link for, wouldn't it?  

Now, I do hear what you're saying about, "If you want to know the numbers, don't bug me about it" but asking for a supporting link to back up a counter-intuitive claim doesn't seem unreasonable and is something that you frequently do yourself.

Is the part where I laugh out loud?  I need a laugh cue card. 

Well, duh. 

Of course the hate-mod needs a cue card to know when to laugh. 

(The other internet's other hate-mods are now being shown cue cards directing them to laugh at you for being a newb, I think.)
133  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Legalized Marijuana and the Crime Question on: July 15, 2014, 04:26:55 PM
Seriously?  Three days worth of salaries?  Good grief.  You have to look at the annual total cost of employees involved in the regulation of the industry.  That includes the tax office, law enforcement, etc.  Even if you only looked at three days worth of costs (not just salaries), it's certainly more than $150k. 

And don't ask me for a link.  Go do your own homework.  You need the learning experience. 

3 days' worth of costs, then?  How would you even be able to figure out what that is?

And law enforcement COSTS?   WTF are you talking about?  Don't you think you could reasonably subtract a huge freaking number from that since you're no longer hassling recreational smokers? 

You're not a dummy but your posts lack some when you make them too fast, I think.

O Rly?  Proof?

Proof?  What does proof have to do with it?

Look, some are born hate-mods, some achieve the role of hate-mod, and others have being a hate-mod thrust upon them.

And getbig hit the trifecta with you, BB. Grin

In truth, I'm completely joking and would hope you'd wear the faux hate-mod title with pleasure. 

Like when some woman I was arguing with on another site called me a "Petulant Man-child".  Holy shit, I love that one so much I'm gonna use if for a screen-name on the next forum I join.

Reminds me of Patrice O'Neal thinking Obama being president would mean he'd have a white slave.
Skip to the 6:03 for the Obama bit.  (Don't cheat yourself by not watching the whole thing, though.)

I disagree.  It doesn't even cover the salaries of all the people involved in regulating the industry.  It's actually costing the government (and the taxpayers) money. 


It doesn't cover 3 days' worth of their salaries?  (How many such folks are there?  How much do they make?  How do I apply?)

Source?

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls any group that supports traditional marriage a "hate group."  Pretty asinine. 

Says the getbig Political Issues Board "hate mod". Grin

Washington is beautiful.  I was there several months ago.  Got to go up the Space Needle.  Very nice. 

But the $150k is pretty meaningless. 

A small sum?  Yes.

Meaningless?  No, I disagree.  Considering how many states are running a deficit, it's not meaningless.

What it means, if nothing else, is that legalized MJ is a gov't money-maker that's being missed out on in states where it's not being taxed. 

Because, let's face it, whether it's legal or not, people are spending a lot of money on weed.

Ok?  It's still a nominal amount. 

Why ya gotta rain on their parade? 

Is that Washington state not rainy and depressed enough?

Where is all the concrete evidence that with hundreds of thousands crossing the borders daily they' re isn't any terrorists. I supposed the drug gangs are ok with you as well. Tard

Who are you calling 'tard in the same post where you claim illegal immigrants number in the "Hundreds of thousands crossing the borders daily"? 

Care to amend that claim?  Because even at 200,000 daily, that would mean we're getting 73 million illegal immigrants a year.  How would that be possible when the total US population is less than 400 million? 

And, lol, if your claim were true, then why would we care about getting 60,000 kids this year (as it's been projected) from Central America since it would just be a drop in the bucket?

Feh, your fantastic claims aside, I'll say that I sympathize with your concerns a bit but wonder if you are like me in thinking the real question is what is the appropriate response to the possibility that the sizable number of illegal immigrants we get includes terrorists. 

Look, we do get way to many illegal aliens, I'm with you there.  Amongst all these mostly from South of the border trespassers, there are bound to be terrorists, I'm even with you there.  Where I don't think I'm with you, though, is how big a deal I think it is.

Because I don't think it's that simple an issue.  It seems like some folks would impractically suggest that I post a guard to watch my car 24/7 just because there are would-be car thieves out there.  Ya follow what I'm saying?

Why make a huge deal out of terrorists being able to enter our country if the poor idiots are so un-resourceful that they need to hoof it through the desert?  Especially when our country is already home to lots of crazy kooks who don't seem to be causing much terror except for in the minds of frightened conservatives?

TL;DR:  Probably are some terrorists among illegal immigrants but we shouldn't overreact to that until they cause more of a real problem.

Have not been following prop 8 so I don't know what the current status is.

Regarding the prohibition on husband and wife, it wouldn't be as big a deal if not for all the other attempts to indoctrinate people.  It's also completely unnecessary. 

Not a big deal, imo.  That it's some kind of law instead of just a policy is the only thing that grates to me. 

Smacks of a conscious effort to keep LGBT concerns at the forefront of the day's issues purely for political reasons:  I'm guessing that if Dems thought that LGBT policies backed by the Tea Party News Network, The Christian News Network, The Pacific Justice Institute (which the Southern Poverty Law Center designated as a "hate group" in 2014) and the right in general were more popular, then they wouldn't be talking about LGBT issues so much.

When was John Kerry vice president?  I must have slept through that one.  

That was one of Dario's counter-factual claims. 

I think it's worthwhile to bring up whenever he tries to rip anyne for saying anything stupid.

For the op, since a democrat made this claim, it is brilliant.

The stupidest vice president in history, namely John Kerry, agrees with you.

lol @ the "rake in nearly $150,000" headline.  What is that, like one tenth of one percent of their GET for the year? 

I had similar thoughts when I read that, too. 

Then I read that the 150G's represents 3 days' worth of business from only 6 stores currently open statewide.  And those numbers don't include sales tax. 

To be clear, 25 businesses have apparently received licenses to sell MJ, but only a handful were ready to do so during the first few days that it was legal.

Hey BB, I'm a little confused by Prop 8 info in this excerpt.  Maybe you know a little more?

It seems to first say that Prop 8 was overturned by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals after which the Supreme Court refused to overturn that ruling.  I think I understand that but then, confusingly (for me), the excerpt then goes on to quote an attorney from the Pacific Justice Institute in California (Matthew McReynolds) who says ďContrary to media myths, Prop. 8 has not been invalidated on a statewide basis."

Does that mean that Prop 8 is still in effect in some places in CA?  

BTW, is it really a big deal if they change the words "husband" and "wife" to "spouse"?  Taking the gender out of common terms seems to have been a thing since way before gay marriage.  And to my ear, "spouse" sounds a lot better than "lay-person".  

On a non-serious note, it could have been worse, ya know;  The LGBT camp probably lobbied to change "husband" and "wife" to "top" and "bottom", lol.

I was being facetious.  But you sort of have to not be a simpleton to see that. 

lol, name-calling already?  That escalated quickly.

Chill out, BB.  I was being facetious, too. Smiley
