I get searched literally 100% of the time because of my insulin pump, but it's usually pretty cursory.The thing at Heathrow was a pain in the ass, they made me totally unpack my carry on twice and I got patted down thoroughly both times. And I was 20 hours into a trip, so that made it doubleplus fun.My mom does that kind of shit. She just can't help herself being stubborn about stuff she doesn't think she "ought" to have to do. It's like, seriously, you're just making...
This stuff with Trump's charity is fun. He was basically doing everything he accused the Clintons of doing with the Clinton Foundation, except without the "actually spending money on charity" part. Now he's supposedly having personal income direct to his charity. He claims he paid taxes on it, but right, he won't release his records. Top kek.
My last flight, I got fondled at Dulles and then twice in a row at Heathrow. Once at security and then "randomly" at the gate. I thought blonde haired blue eyed white guys were supposed to be immune to such treatment.
If it works anything like our structure, the change in job position might make her ineligible for performance and COLA raises from her previous pay. The promotion could even cost her money.
I hear Harambe is putting up good numbers. We should post that in every thread so everyone knows.
We have people posting links from lunatic fringe blogs about Clinton's supposed health conspiracy, but that's the thing you feel the need to call out.lol
This is my big complaint with the approach the Democrats have been taking of late. It's all on higher income working people, while talking about "millionaires and billionaires." Some lawyer or doctor isn't "Wall Street," but that's where the policies are going. It's all income taxes and stuff like estate taxes, because that's what voters understand.
Is she capped out, or is there potential for a grade increase along with the promotion?Promotions can be a weird beast in government. My boss got promoted last year (into a spot basically nobody else wanted). He was already capped out on salary, so he basically doubled his responsibilities and got a lot less attractive job duties in exchange for a new title.
I'm ok with blaming everything on global warming.
This is always my objection when people talk about making driving tests routine. I don't want to lose my ability to drive because some idiot didn't mail out my reminder letter, or didn't process the form, or failed me for trivial bullshit because they were in a bad mood. I'd rather have more terrifying drivers on the road than have to deal with that.Like a lot of taxes, the estate tax turns into an idiot tax. You can always find some legal structure to minimize or...
