So, +Citibank US, let's talk about who has the problem here.

Thinking about it, I suspect what happened is that the smallest "minimum payment" is something like $25, and since my automatic payment is $22.91, that triggered a bit of shoddy code.

So, to be clear here, the defendant was guilty of carrying a weapon because the item he was carrying did not qualify as a weapon?

You've disappointed me this time, Justice González. Let's not make this a habit.
 
A divided Washington Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Seattle law prohibiting people from carrying fixed-blade knives such as kitchen utensils for self-defense does not conflict with the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.

Just skimmed the ruling. Nice dissent Justice Fairhurst. I'll be keeping an eye on you.

I would contend also that by requiring that an "arm" be designed primarily for an offensive purpose, as opposed to a more general tool like a paring knife, you disenfranchise the poor, who may be less able to afford single-purpose tools. I would answer the majority opinion's question then: Yes, a rolling pin or frying pan could be a constitutionally-protected arm.

Yeah, I first read it a while back. I read the Creative Commons version, so I justified the $75 price for this as my way of supporting the author of a kick-ass story. I find that as most of what I read is in ebook form, signed hardback and/or limited editions from my favorite authors have been a lot more important to me. I'm sure more disposable income as I get older hasn't hurt either.

You know, I still think his treatment by the school administration and police was reprehensible. Still, it's a little disappointing that Ahmed is turning his escapades after reassembling building a clock into an extended truancy vacation, despite who his dad he wants to chum up with.
Ahmed Mohamed, the 14-year-old American, who captured the world's attention when he was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to his Texas school last month, met Sudanese Presi...

Ah, he was one of the people in involved in that case. Definitely I don't feel sorry for him, but somehow I wasn't sure if this was going to turn into "mothers demand action" claiming this was a cop shot in the line of duty.

Old habits die hard, don't they +Microsoft? If you're going to give it away, then give it away and offer it as a straight download, too, rather than force me into one of a handful of walled gardens.

So maybe I should ask this privately, but what do you think about the idea that I have of becoming a citizen of another country, renouncing my US citizenship and being able to travel (and live) in the EU?

Not that Europe isn't going to hell.

But, I'm wondering, in the next 50 years...my expected lifespan.....(which could be a low estimate if certain medical realities happen) should I consider living outside of any major city?

I mean, right now....I'm in a third world island nation...

It's safe and secure from major attacks, nobody gives a shit....

But,,,it could also be a primitive hell hole if cut off from the world...say during a major world war or major world depression.

Maybe this is all just a mental exercise,,,however it is possible to have a small farm off the grid and just live a simple life and not care.

The other side of me likes urban life and figures if the world crumbles I'll just go along with it.

"What causes some confusion is that 'domestic terrorism' is not an offense or a charge," Carlin said. Therefore, domestic terror groups or actors must be prosecuted with firearms or explosives offenses, hate crimes or murder.

Oh my god! You mean that citizens of the United States who have some disagreement with the way their country is run must first commit a crime before they can be prosecuted? The horror!
Domestic terror groups pose a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda, a Justice Department official said Wednesday.

LOL....

It's kind of like the Twilight Zone.

And people wonder why there are groups of people that don't want to be disarmed.

We are a thin whisper away from seeing people locked up for thought crimes, expressing things deemed unacceptable, and for the charge of "potential" terrorist.

Maybe Gitmo was an exercise to see how willing the American public was to dismiss the thought of expecting some kind of rule of law to apply to America's enemies, real or imagined.

There is, in my opinion, only one way to settle this peacefully and without dragging in other actors, and that is to fractionalize the states.

America is simply too big.

Room was adequate, typical for a budget motel. Internet was solid, but slow. My biggest complaint was that there was a single ice machine for the entire massive complex. Overall, I'd say it was ok, but not worth the price premium over other budget motels.
