re: Can we finally agree that manmade climate change is here? - bapple
[quote]rehtaeh[/quote] Why do you not admit that more regulations would cause more C02 emissions into the atmosphere? The more expensive and difficult it is to create an honest business in the US, the more likely we are to outsource that work to a poor country like China. [b]China is the #1...

[quote]There are better ones but I thought this would be a good beginner one for the price and if I want to upgrade, it should not be too hard to sell and get my money back. [/quote] I doubt this will even be necessary. That rifle will have outstanding accuracy and is super lightweight. You'll lo...

re: $10 billion in unpaid traffic tickets and fines - bapple
[quote]And he is right. What is the point in traffic fines, if not to be a deterrent? I still think there is a line that California seems to have crossed with their amounts, but there is no other point to fines if not to be punitive and get people to not commit the infraction.[/quote] Traffic fin...
