“Those other qualified people weren't canned as early and you weren't hiring during those 99 weeks, now were you, or else you could have hired that person after only 4 weeks? Sad that you're in a position to hire, as you don't seem to have a solid grasp of reality.”

“Applicant A walks into my office and is gainfully employed but looking to better himself in the position. SOlid work history and qualified. Applicant B walks into my office and has been unemployed collecting unemployment benefits for 99 weeks. Also qualified. Who do you think I should hire? Exactly. Even you know that answer.”
“Who said anything about their marriage failing? You can project your failing marriage status on them if you want, I guess, though stating it out loud sounds really silly.”

“They have clearly demonstrated a failure to find fulfillment, in monogamy.
Open Marriage is their attempt to repair (path-up) this failure.
You may not enjoy hearing it in these terms, but you have no credible foundation to deny it.
I am sorry to have denied you the comfort of a head buried deep in the sand.
But, that's what reality is all about -- you only discredit yourself by denying it.
I don't have a failing marriage.
You look enormously silly, by trying to project your own projections, about projection, onto me. :)
Seems we hit upon a very sensitive topic for you.
You want to project failed marriages onto others.
Take it easy -- there is no shame in not succeeding in marriage, my friend.
It is not only a matter of hard work -- success requires considerable fortune!!
Selecting a partner is not a game based upon perfect information.
And, even if it were, you don't possess sufficient processing power to safely predict happiness in every possible future.
If you are unable to find fulfillment in a relationship based upon monogamy, there's no need to feel ashamed.
You probably just love yourself too much, and you don't have room for another.”
“There's nothing complicated about that arrangement. Sheesh.
And polyamory is not a lifestyle. It's an approach to relationships. There's a very large difference.”

“Oh, so polygamy is an approach to relationships? What is traditional marriage defined as? What is same-sex marriage defined as? How prejudicial are you? You think it's ok for people of the opposite sex to marry, and it's ok for people of the same sex to marry, but some how you find yourself God by deciding the fact that a man can't love more than one woman (especially when the women agree). A bit prejudicial I think.”

“Perhaps they kept the title because they're using the character from the original story? You know--the story that the first film was also based on. So both movies are riding the coattails of the short story, as it were.”

“Well, I'm under the age of 50 and have no clue who he is. From looking at the gushing below, I can see that he's done nothing that would interest me, so I'll pass on the halftime show, too. The recent history of SB halftime shows being unappealing continues.”

“Do you own a television or a radio? I'm seriously asking. I'm not sure how you could have gone the last 3 years without seeing or hearing him.”

“I am 60 and know who Bruno is and I am looking forward to his performance. He is very talented and was great on SNL this past year. It was one of best SNLs this year.”
“It's quite easy to see that you're not a trained musician. If I know a part, I can perform it with any other musicians on a spur of the moment in front of any audience and get it right. That's what all the practicing and training allows one to do.”
“Well, you can pile the excrement higher and deeper--and it's still bullsh!t. Until there are jobs that pay more and offer more benefits for every single minimum wage worker, your response is morally deficient and wholly inadequate. Simply saying that they can get jobs that pay more doesn't actually provide those jobs that pay more. And here's the most important point to consider: the economy has to work for everybody. If it isn't providing a reasonable standard of living for anybody who is investing their work in it, then it is failing; the extent to which it is failing can be measured by how many people are under constant strain when simply trying to cover the basics of living.”
“There is absolutely no way to decide whether or not a passenger can afford a trip, at least, not in the real world. I've had folks who appeared to be homeless hop in my taxi and they were able to pay for longish trips and even tip better than business travelers. And the folks who've actually stiffed me (almost all on short trips) have been predominantly white and middle-class.
So, your racist worldview and resultant profiling? Worthless in the real world.”
“I'm thinking that an investment in a cell jamming device, in addition to reminders that calling, texting, tweeting, etc. are all rude, would be a good thing. As would trying to be certain that the folks invited are generally polite and unlikely to go wild on their phones, anyway.”
