“Apparently they chickened out so far, we're following the news closely. First I hear they're there and ill break a land speed record getting there, heck, I'll probably talk the trooper out of a ticket if I tell him where we're headed...”
“:)) trust me, he's good but when I asked to have the mitt Romney rate (jokingly) he replied (seriously, he doesn't have a sense of humor)
" can't, your revenues are from working.."

“Don't tell me you have zero income from investments. One reason why you are working is because others invest as well.”
“Laughable, do you pay $10 a gallons or $3 for stamps just because you make more than your neighbor? Doubt it.
I paid my nanny according to going rates, the more experience the more they get. Brad Pitt nannies make 6 figures because of the job requirement. I don't make the pay scales.”
“It's nothing new, it's the same all over Asia as well. I guess people are free to do as they please, we've had help at times but with our participation, we did the raising... We had a nanny when the kids were really young until they started pre K. It's not ideal but in some situations you need the freedom of movement it procures.
I agree with you that the nannies in outfits that you can see in Latin America or Asia is a bit creepy but its done so that the nannies are differentiated from the employers which in most cases are of the same origins, although a new trend for wealthy Chinese has been to hire Caucasian nannies, status symbol I guess.”

We saw justice Saturday in NYC, now that was a show... Bummer that my kid now wants to go see Swedish House Mafia in march, I'll take him because I'm a loving father but yikes!”

“Corrected that in another post, typo, gotye, I didn't care enough to check, just glad it doesn't get played anymore.... We saw Justice Sunday and that was awesome, but now my kid wants to go see Swedish House Mafia... I'll take him because I'm a loving father but yikes!!”
“Btw, the orthodox contribute nothing to Israeli society, they live off welfare with grapes of kids, cost a fortune in army protection for their settlements yet do not serve (on religious grounds no less) and harass everybody who does not do as they wish. every Israeli Ive met cannot stand them...
D Silverman's point was that the day rabbi whatever contributes as much to Jewishness maybe he can open his yap... And he's right.”
“The rabbi was condescending, as if her life is meaningless if she doesn't serves a man and pop him a litter...
Maybe she's filling her "void" with politics (how dare she, a woman having opinions!) but I think he's filling his void with religion, he's projecting.”
“Yes, let's black out reality... That's why we're still in Iraq and Afghanistan, If we got the images Europe has been seeing for the last ten years we'd have left long ago. But the public cant handle consequences, lets show war zones after clean up of surgical strikes from space...”
