Happy birthday, Rick! I'm 48, and you have described my sentiments exactly. I still love life, my wife and my family, but I truly don't give a sh*t what anybody thinks. Keep up the good (curmudgeonly) work!Comment Posted By Michael On 25.01.2008 @ 16:34
This Rosenman guy has to know that his story is going to be looked at by the Feds. How will he explain loaning other peoples money to Hsu with no due diligence?
Hsu had no office, placed no orders for goods, had no contracts with Prada or Gucci, and made payments with post dated checks.
Wasn't the fact that he was claiming to return a 40% profit enough to raise any suspicion?
No one does business like this. How can this cover story provide anything but more questions?Comment Posted By michael On 13.09.2007 @ 20:31
Wow, this really borders on Bill Clinton softcore porn.Comment Posted By Michael On 5.09.2007 @ 14:53
If you don't mind me asking John are you not convinced by proponents of Global Warming or not convinced by the opponents of it?Comment Posted By Michael On 18.09.2007 @ 15:34
You refer several times to the "dead carpenter's son". Unless you are referring to the Merrivingians, you would be correct to refer to the return of the "dead carpenter", not his son.Comment Posted By Michael On 2.01.2007 @ 13:26
I was just getting ready to write an objection to this editorial, when I decided to first read Jim's response. Nuff said. I suppose that being as prolific as you are, you are bound to put out some poorly thought out stuff occasionally. This was one of them.Comment Posted By Michael On 20.12.2006 @ 13:21
Great response to PZ Meyers militant stance on education. Education in the United States was declining even during the Clinton years. And yes, it does have improving moments. My brother experienced a government college at it's worse. Now he was studying to become a teacher, students were frustrated by the lack of organization. Here they were paying huge amounts of money, and they couldn't even start a meeting on time, nothing was set-up. So normally each meeting started an hour after it was suppose to start. Many other problems occurred such as which student was going to which school to teach. One of his classes he had teachers who were forbidden to talk about their experience in class. Now you would think they would have something to contribute with their experience for future teachers. PZ has a bias, he has formated a model in which he always looks within it, rather than looking at other variables.
Maybe he should try to become a teacher all over again in my brother's former college and see first hand the problems existing...lolComment Posted By Michael On 2.05.2008 @ 02:41
Going from: "much of it was actually funny" to: "it wasn't funny anyway". Is, erm, childish. But you're a big boy now, yeh? I also don't recall Colbert referring to the press as "lapdogs" or any other such nonsense. Sure, there are the insinuations - which makes him actually, funny (i.e. the bit about where the reporters go home and write an amazing book about ballzy journos., "you know fiction"). By the way, what is 'moonbashing' or 'moonbatting'? It's very odd. Are you losing it?Comment Posted By Michael On 4.05.2006 @ 17:44
Has anyone noticed that Chloe now has her own James (Jane?) Bond-ish theme music whenever she's on?Comment Posted By Michael On 18.04.2006 @ 11:15
Is there something about the very core and heart of Islam that gives rise to this kind of behavior? What kind of spirit leads people to wish to behead someone for drawing a caricature? Where is the outcry when Christ is regularly mocked in all the media of the world? Christians don't burn down buildings when Christ is depicted in cartoons, do they? But if Mohammed is shown saying "We have run out of virgins!" to a line of waiting Muslim men, Muslims go wild and start loading the clips of their AK-47s. I find it disturbing to now see the world walk on eggs, not daring to offend for fear of further Muslim violence/terrorism. My how quickly we want to isolate these recent events, and refuse to see the them in context of this so-called religion of peace. And Iran wants a nuclear bomb...Comment Posted By Michael On 6.02.2006 @ 08:10
