Re: What has pissed you off today

FFS, willmore, everybody with a view that you don't share isn't mental or a troll.


I'd suggest your confusion is due to not having all the facts (unlike the DA and the Grand Jury, you've only...

Re: Nice Tone

Caused a bit of a furore last year. AIUI, it was a genuine effort by climate change activists, that backfired.

Re: So seems just about anyone can get called for Jury service

Could go either way. The cat might also decide that owning a dog was clear proof of not guilty by reason of insanity. ;)

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

We have to drive 50 miles to the nearest dentist that charges what our plan will pay. The biggest employer in town has a really generous dental plan and all the local dentists appear to charge...

Re: So seems just about anyone can get called for Jury service

I suspect that it may be both. At least, even if it was true last year, it's very unlikely that the exact same thing would happen to the exact same people, again, this year.

No, mate, I wasn't mad*, just found the exchange increasingly pointless. And you're not luring me back into it.;)

Re: Tivo, DVRs and schedule changes.

We just tested the google thing and it seemed to work well, so I think we'll give it a go. SWMBO mostly uses her cell phone and I don't use the phone much at all, so paying for a landline seems...

Re: Tivo, DVRs and schedule changes.

It's looking promising. Internet access from Clear seems to be working OK (we're right in between two towers and get a good signal). They haven't managed to activate the telephone service, though......

Re: So seems just about anyone can get called for Jury service

Yep, it's a hoax. I looked up a few articles in Google News about it and one of them had comment which pointed this out and linked to a newspaper article reporting the exact same story around this...

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

Yeah, yeah, the so-called "gun show loophole". Not so much a myth as an unwelcome paedophile uncle who just won't stop turning up. :lol:

It doesn't exist - most of the vendors at gun shows are...

What is it with the left's obsession with calling everybody who disagrees with them a loony?:confused:

Of course I can and quite right too. Voluntary transfer of private property is no business of anybody but the parties involved.

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

Thus you prove that when you talk about harmonization, you mean increasing restriction. It's like those corporate types who use the term "rightsizing" - when was the last time anybody rightsized...

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

OK, let's put that to the test. There are three types of state, when it comes to concealed carry permits:

The first, and largest group, are "will issue" states. That means, if you've got no...

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

And you'd be free to make that choice.

That's the big difference between the two sides in this row. One side wants to expand freedoms, the other side seeks every opportunity to restrict them.

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

And the meta-study from the National Academies is what?

For the second time - I neither know nor care what your beef is, but lay off the personal insults.

Re: Why Americans don't like Obamacare

Easy, there, Hoss. I'll put my hands up to repeating something that I read elsewhere, without fact checking it first, but that's all. Calling me a liar is a bit strong, IMHO.

Anyway, there's no...

Mate - I thought we'd done this to death, already. Define your terms - what does "less guns" mean? Guns in whose hands? What are your crime recording standards? Define a homicide - in England, it's a...

I'm not sure that we debated, more talked past each other. But I agree that an absence of nastiness is nice. :)
