  1. The Walking Dead on AMC

    I liked the season opener. But when is Monster going to *finally* get laid?
  2. Wouldn't bother me at all. Jury duty is boring as hell. Plus, I'm vastly superior to most men and have little reason for insecurity.
  3. Did you hear about the new perfume made through the collaborative efforts of both Japan and the confederate states? It's called 'Surrender' - I hear it's very popular in France.
  4. The huddle honesty Thread

    I'd say we should burn it down and start over, but we already tried that with Atlanta and the place is still a crap hole.
  5. The huddle honesty Thread

    I suppose that depends on whether you think spanking is an act of lazy parenting.
  6. I guess this is okay?

    Without it, we'd just be master*ing.
  7. McJobs

    Sure - for experienced, highly specialized lawyers. Trust me. I'm not complaining about that at all. Like I said, I'm much better off now compared to four years ago. Like I've said before, America basically has two economies right now and only one of them is doing poorly. The people at the top are doing awesome. I'm happy for them. I make my living off them. But only a microscopic percentage of us will ever join them.

    My average individual client has a net worth between $25-$35mm, with several into the billions. Like I said, business is booming.
  9. McJobs

    No. I'm high-end tax and estate planning attorney in private practice and business is booming.

    I think Obama has done a decent job based solely on the merits of his performance. Not a perfect job. But certainly not "very poorly" by any standard. The only reason you know the name Sandra Fluck is because "conservatives" called her a slut and a whore for having the audacity to use contraceptives. So, yeah, I believe the GOP is more fixated on divisive social issues than the democrats.
  11. McJobs

    No, I'm just a lot better off than I was four years ago so I have no reason to complain. Regardless of what was or was not promised, by my account the president - while far from perfect - has done an adept job of navigating the country through some of the rockiest economic times the planet has seen in long while. I am also convinced that the average American would be worse off under current GOP leadership, which I view as largely detached from reality, and fixated on meaningless and divisive social issues.

    I don't have a problem with how the Obama administration has run the country. Yes, the fed's policies obviously do have an impact on the economy but the ultimate responsibility for creating private sector jobs rests with the private sector.
  13. McJobs

    I'm not sure you fully grasped what I was aiming for. Does the federal government have a responsibility to create jobs? If one feels the answer to that questions is "no" then one should not blame unemployment on the president. On the other hand, if one feels that unemployment is the fault of the federal government then its a bit disingenuous to criticize the federal government for actually hiring some people... especially if such hiring is byproduct of carrying out necessary governmental functions. Lots of folks are mad at Obama because of unemployment. But I just don't understand that. Seems like our collective frustration is more naturally directed at the self-professed "job creators" for doing a shitty job in that regard, despite record corporate profits and the fact that the rich have never been richer.
  14. McJobs

    Either the federal government has a responsibility to create jobs (which they have, in the public sector) or its not the federal government's job to create jobs at all (in which case don't blame Obama for unemployment). You can't have it both ways.
  15. Guns don't kill people...paranoid people do

    The answer to gun violence is obviously more guns.
  16. I was so drunk

    She probably became the minority leader of the US House of Representatives.
  17. What do you need Monday night?

    Dunno. But he's damned tasty with humus.
  18. McJobs

    So you want communism, where everyone gets treated "fairly" whether they deserve or not? Pfft. If you think the grass is greener on the government side then go work for government. That's the beauty of free markets, comrade.
  19. Think about the children....

    When the democrats are attacking unions, the unions need to seriously reevaluate their position.
  20. McJobs

    It's the private sector that isn't hiring (thank you very much "job creators"). But somehow its Obama's fault that both: (1) unemployment sucks; and (2) the federal government is simultaneously hiring *too* many people. Yes, that makes perfect sense.
  21. I was so drunk

    College. San Francisco, California. A "boat dance" out on the bay. I was so drunk that: (1) I left the boat forgetting that I had brought my girl friend, whom I was living with at the time; and (2) had the balls to argue with the cops that the Federalist Papers gave the constitutional right to urinate in public. I'm not sure how, but not only did I avoid getting arrested but that same girl still agreed to marry me a few months later.
  22. McJobs

    Sounds like we need better "job creators," because apparently the current ones suck.
  23. McJobs

    To my knowledge, no one has made such a suggestion.
  24. McJobs

    Yes, the "statutory rate" is the highest in the world. But like you said, that isn't what anyone actually ends up paying, which makes it a highly inaccurate standard by which to measure "tax fairness." Whatever that is.
