re: $10 billion in unpaid traffic tickets and fines - ShortyRob
[quote] If you make the fine $10,000 how many people do you think would speed, more, or less, than currently? How can you deny the logic that as the fines increase the number of unwilling to speed will decrease?[/quote] There's no denying that logic. It's just fricking asinine to use that as the ...

[quote]Which standard will you hold your candidate to? [/quote]If we're going to call it a flip-flop every time a candidate of a prolonged period changes his mind, then we really can't get pissed when someone doesn't "compromise", can we? As for standards. Here's one. If I suspect that WHILE YOU...

re: Political Compass Test - See where you fall on the political spectrum - ShortyRob
[quote]Consistency for consistency's sake isn't particularly laudable. [/quote] I consider being consistent valuing freedom to be pretty laudable. I mean, anyone can be for freedom on shite they like and anti-freedom on all the other shite. I'm not consistent for the sake of being consisten...

re: $10 billion in unpaid traffic tickets and fines - ShortyRob
[quote]Why do people engage in activity that results in getting one? [/quote] I think we should institute a $10,000 fine for jaywalking because clearly, whatever the penalty is for it right now doesn't stop it and Poodle seems to be clear that if this is the case, then you just keep upping the pen...

[quote]Fascinating. Then who decides what is "evil"? [/quote]Actually, it's decided in exactly the same way religious people decide it. It's just that non religious people don't then say, "oh, and we're doing what God told us to do"....

[quote]You are one mentally strong son-of-a-bitch. [/quote]Pfft. I cried like a bitch more than once. Two categories of Soldier always messed me up. Either when some 19 year old kid barely in went down or someone with children around the age of mine. One guy I remember vividly had been ...

Oh. And let me tell you what the worst job ever is. Spending a year on the rotation of the people who go notify families. I'm not sure if you're familiar how it is typically done but the idea is, the Chaplain is the "good guy", the consoling person. Hence, your job when you go with him is to ...

re: Taliban launches massive attack at the Heetal Hotel in Kabul (US/UK citizens) - ShortyRob
What is sad is that not so long ago, I was in Afghanistan and every time we lost a Soldier, it pissed me off because I knew that us being there was stupid. I knew that not a single one of those lost lives would end up meaning jack shite. If you are the widow, son, daughter or grandchild of a perso...
