He took the Bar Exam dead drunk with a Native American exemption.

Where do you think the birdman name comes from.

He is on legal boards as big_feather

FWIW, I just liked Chief Noc-A-Homa (former Braves' mascot) on FB.

So if you could care less, how apathetic would you have to be until you couldn't care less?

The new USPS Financial Report issued Friday further validates the claim that the Postal Service is neither broken nor in crisis. Excluding the pre-funding expense the USPS has turned a $660 million profit delivering mail in fiscal year 2013. Showing again that Senator Carper, Senator Coburn and Congressman Issa are manufacturing a postal financial crisis as an excuse to dismantle it. Standing in their shadows are vultures named FedEx and UPS.

Posted with the comment that we need to immediately raise the minimum wage to $15. I really want to post the graph of teen unemployment vs minimum wage, but it just isn't worth it.

The thing about McDonalds wages is that if the people there were paid $15 an hour and couldn't get medicaid or food stamps, the cost of that would be shifted onto people who buy food at McDonalds, instead of taxpayers; and the McDs workers would probably go out and get new cars and cell phones while their kids went hungry and without health insurance.

Here's another one from someone I actually consider a friend. He's a professional musician, but these kinds of things just frustrate me: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/27/opinion/sunday/slaves-of-the-internet-unite.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

"Ours is a mixed economy, with the gift economy of the arts existing (if not exactly flourishing) within the inhospitable conditions of a market economy, like the fragile black market in human decency that keeps civilization going despite the pitiless dictates of self-interest."

I mean, the Minneapolis Orchestra is on strike because they don't want to take a pay cut. They make $113k/yr base right now, and my understanding is they are trying to cut the base salary down to something like $100k/yr (again that is just base). I have no problem with them striking if they want, but they act like the system is awful when a professional artist can make more than twice the average household income. What is wrong with the arts being beholden to market conditions?

Honestly they would be replaced by robots. They're already doing this in high minimum wage countries.

Bonus points for Fruit Juice and skittles. Epic level if you can scrounge up some cough syrup.

Don't worry, I'll go all out.

I'd be George Zimmerman but it'd be tough to have a cell phone saying "Stay in your vehicle, that's a direct order from the police" on speaker all night.

If be George Zimmerman but it'd be exhausting to have to yell "fucking coons" at everybody I meet all night.
post #3314 of 5454
I'd be Zimmerman but I don't think the cops would like me impersonating an armed security guard all night.

I'd be Zimmerman but I'd need a [strikethrough]girl[/strikethrough] teen boy to dress up as Rachel Maddow and call me baby killer all night long.
