Hate when the young and vulnerable are put in jeopardy.  Hope someone finds this little girl safe.

Unless it came later in the debate, I found something missing ... the proAbortion folks had concerns about others mandating morality, but today, just the opposite is true.  I am a Libertarian who has strong personal antiAbortion feelings, but believes that up to a point, a mother can choose to destroy her child.  I don't like it, but Roe v Wade did mandate it.  What about the fact that Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion-centers are largely taxPayer funded and most gov't employees are paid w/taxPayer funded plans that include abortive care.  TaxPayers of conscience are forced to help the mother destroy her baby.  So whose morality is being forced on who?

lol -So the privately-paid for abortion
sits well with you and shuts you up - 
hell thats about 65% of them - 

Im a taxpayer TOO - maybe im acting out of
a conscience also, if paying for abortions out of public funds would forestall desperate women from trying to self-abort and harming or even killing themselves.

I must say that I answered very honestly, and I now feel great shame.  It picked me as Yonkers, Trenton, and Philly.  I think I'll go cry for a while now.
 
Great time killer > How your speech pattern compares to other American's that have participated in this study/quiz.

The makers of this test peg me as a native of Winston-Salem, NC.  This is an interesting change from the usual "Midwest-Kansas" guess.  Neither are even close to the truth.

Good overview of layer differences between openStack and more proprietary stacks.  Was not aware before that openStack is targetting greenField for now

Issue is quite complex.  Skilled people are available ... but I know skilled people who have found it easier to live on entitlements (by doing all they can w/in the system to maximize their entitlements ... they do quite well).  Others are leaning on the entitlements that their families have relied on for generations ... and thus not bothering to develop skills.  Still others know that having that one or 2 more children will put their entitlements to where they really need to be to be comfortable.  Bottom line, if entitlements stay as lucrative as they are, we need immigrants to come in and do the work.  Of course, a large % will see the entitlements and lean heavily on them (and those wonderful tax credits on large numbers of virtual children).  Bringing immigrants into a welfare state is a recipe for disaster.  Moving to a free state (which would reduce the power and influence of gov't ... so it will never happen) ... resolves the immigration problem at the same time.  Less entitlement means only those willing to work, or criminals will want to come in.

While I am no fan of BHO or John Heinz-Kerry ... people are screaming about our "weak" response the situation in the Ukraine.  While it is embarressing having these incompetent folks sabre rattling against a former KGB leader (who can run circles around them strategically) ... if it means we do NOT send troops over there, then I cheer BHO's incompetence.  If you are not a VFW ... and are certain that "WE" need to go invade there or "WE" need to draw a line in the sand ... then you are a ChairBorne Ranger.  Enlist, or stop feeling patriotic for choosing to send strangers to their death.  I pray for peace, but it is not our war and our military is already in way too many places they should not be.  And unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, Code Pink was abducted by aliens in late 2008.  Under this president, we've brought the troops home from 0 wars and put "boots on the ground" in 3 new conflicts.  I know Code Pink wasn't purely hypocritical antiBush folks who used antiWar because it sounded more noble ... so the only other explanation is the mass alien abduction I spoke of.  But whatever it takes to keep us OUT of the Ukraine is a good thing.  Maybe the aliens will return Code Pink so that they can start being heard again.

I am doing a short z/OS tools writeUp and "should" have the server side of z/OSMF installed tomorrow.  Would love to get some screen shots of the dash board.  Very cool stuff and I may not have all the customization done in time for "press time".

I've seen these combinations before ... dogs are amazing.  My 2 rescues would dis-member anyone who attacked my wife ... but do allow family members to annoy them endlessly.
 
This is the best!

Well done and somehow Janus you found a way to stay neutral which is extremely rare.  As an engineer I like factual representation ... as a Libertarian (who believes heavily in voluntary transactions), ACA is not exactly my favorite thing.  But again, this was very well done.

Have eaten there after church many times and always been pleased. But today, the guy who normally makes suggestions was not there, so I randomly tried the BBQ Beach Burger. I ordered it rare and it came out ... rare (all to infrequent to that these days). The burger dwarfed the bun and it was absolutely amazing. I grudgingly gave my wife a bite as she could see how good it looked. She also found it nothing short of amazing. Only problem I will have now is ordering anything other than the BBQ Beach Burger when I go to RJs.

Being from "the Bible Belt" in North Carolina ... I was not sure what I'd see in Canada (we see on our news how preachers are jailed up here for reading scripture publicly et al). I got lost en route so was a few minutes late getting in ... the drums and guitar I heard as I walked sounded great (I am a believer who likes to hear the word not watered down, but I also like the music to pop). So after hearing some great music, I listened to the sermon. It was biblical and challenging w/out beating anyone about the head (some bible belt churches are famous for that ... sometimes needed ... but not every Sunday). I don't know how many Sundays I'll find myself in the Toronto Markham area ... but if/when I do, I will visit "The Bridge" again (and cooler yet, I was able to do so on Saturday night).
