Or give Atheists a tax break so they are not forced to subsidize other people's myths.

The bastard thinks he is macho hunting innocent animals in the wild.
I hope someone hunts him down and knocks out 32 of his teeth.

I think it's funny that this article is describing a salary of $150,000 and "so damn rich." The million/billionaires are taking over this country. But let's focus our attention on people making $150,000/year and convince ourselves that they are the ones causing all the inequity we see today.

marcus says

According to Trump, Ann Coulter and others there are 30 million undocumented immigrants in the country. That's about one percent of our population.

@Dan8267, in case you were looking for proof that marcus/"humanity" is not a math teacher (or, worse, why California schools fail their students), here it is.

Unlike the fat slobs who buy from factory farmed animals.

If you squint real hard at these photos, you can see the bulk and definition that come from long training workouts and the grueling fitness regimen necessary for optimum performance in sport hunting.

The Republican Party is full of child rapists.

List of Republican Child Rapists, Adulterers, and Sex Offenders

I checked to see what came up on Google, and here's what I found in the first couple of hits. You should add them to your list... Or does the Democrat-sicko list go to a different department?

Democratic State Senator Dan Sutton of Flandreau, South Dakota accused of fondling a male page. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/24/AR2007012401966.html

Carl Stanley McGee, 38, prominent gay activist, assistant secretary for policy and planning and top aid to democrat governor Deval Patrick of Massachuttsettes, accused of sexually assaulting a 15 year old boy in a steam room at a Florida resort. http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/general/view.bg?articleid=1072114
Bernard Vincent Ward, former chief legislative aide to Senator Barbara Boxer, self proclaimed "Lion of the Left" on bay area radio, admitted transgressions too numerous to mention. http://prosites-prs.homestead.com/ward_new.pdf

Davidson County Democratic Party Chairman Rodney Mullins resigned Thursday morning amid child pornography allegations, according to press secretary Jean Carter Wilson of the Davidson County Democratic Party. http://nashvillefiles.com/blog/archives/000808.html

Former Democrat Boston city councilor David Scondras is facing charges for attempting to lure a teenage boy over the Internet. Investigators said Scondras had several sexually explicit email exchanges with someone he thought was a 15-year-old boy. http://wbztv.com/topstories/Former.Boston.City.2.582093.html

Charles Rust-Tierney, 51, is a former president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU from 2002 to 2005. On February 23, 2007, Rust-Tierney was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography on June 1, 2007.[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Rust-Tierney

Andrew Douglas Reed, 53, a North Carolina Democrat activist plead guilty to a page-long list of counts of 2nd-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Court records in the Asheville, N.C., case said he admitted that he would "record, develop and duplicate material containing a visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity." http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53070 Scott W. Ballo, a long-time spokesman for various Democratic political campaigns and a former communications director for the Oregon Economic and Community Development Department, was arraigned today in Marion County Circuit Court on two charges of encouraging child sex abuse (both misdemeanors) and one charge of official misconduct (also a misdemeanor), according to the court clerk's office. The charges relate to pornography allegedly found on Ballo's work computer when he was employed by the economic and community development department, according to a person familiar with the case. http://www.wweek.com/wwire/?p=9905

Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment.

Martha Robertson, the Democrat candidate running against Rep. Tom Reed in NY23, is having a fundraiser in Ithaca that will be headlined by convicted child molester Peter Yarrow. Yes, he’s the Peter Yarrow from the 1960′s band Peter, Paul and Mary.

Convicted homosexual child molester and early gay rights activist Leon Rouse has once again been hired at the legislature. According to the Office Managers List for the Hawaii State Legislature, updated October, 2013 for the special session, Rouse is now managing the office of Rep Karen Awana, D-Nanakuli. Rouse's presence at the office is confirmed by office personnel and by constituents who have visited the office to lobby Awana on the pending gay marriage bill. Rouse is believed to be the only convicted child molester knowingly employed in any legislative office anywhere in the United States.)

Former Rep. Wayne Hays. The late Ohio Democrat hired an unqualified secretary reportedly for sexual acts. Although he resigned from Congress.

Sen. Teddy Kennedy. The liberal Massachusetts senator testified in defense of nephew accused of rape, invoking his family history to win over the jury in 1991.

REP. JOHN YOUNG (D-Tex.). On June 11, 1976, Colleen Gardner, a former staff secretary to Young, told the New York Times that Young increased her salary after she gave in to his sexual advances. In November, Young, who had run unopposed in the safe Democratic district five consecutive times, was reelected with just 61 percent of the vote. The scandal wouldn't go away, and in 1978 Young was defeated in a Democratic primary runoff.

REP. ALLAN HOWE (D-Utah). On June 13, 1976, Howe was arrested in Salt Lake City on charges of soliciting two policewomen posing as prostitutes. Howe insisted he was set up and refused to resign. But the Democratic Party distanced itself from his candidacy and he was trounced by his Republican opponent in the November election.

REP. FRED RICHMOND (D-N.Y.). In April 1978, Richmond was arrested in Washington for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old boy. Richmond apologized for his actions, conceding he "made bad judgments involving my private life." In spite of a Democratic primary opponent's attempts to cash in on the headlines, Richmond easily won renomination and reelection. But his career came to an end four years later when, after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana and tax evasion - and amid allegations that he had his staff procure cocaine for him -- he resigned his seat.

REP. JOHN HINSON (D-Miss.). On Aug. 8, 1980, during his first reelection bid, Hinson stunned everyone by announcing that in 1976 he had been accused of committing an obscene act at a gay haunt in Virginia. Hinson, married and a strong conservative, added that in 1977 he had survived a fire in a gay D.C. movie theater. He was making the disclosure, he said, because he needed to clear his conscience. But he denied he was a homosexual and refused GOP demands that he resign. Hinson won reelection in a three-way race, with 39 percent of the vote. But three months later, he was arrested on charges of attempted oral sodomy in the restroom of a House office building. He resigned his seat on April 13, 1981.

REP. ROBERT BAUMAN (D-Md.). On Oct. 3, 1980, Bauman, a leading "pro-family" conservative, pleaded innocent to a charge that he committed oral sodomy on a teenage boy in Washington. Married and the father of four, Bauman conceded that he had been an alcoholic but had been seeking treatment. The news came as a shock to voters of the rural, conservative district, and he lost to a Democrat in November.

REP. GERRY STUDDS (D-Mass.). The House ethics committee on July 14, 1983, announced that Studds had sexual relationships with a teenage congressional page -- a 17-year-old male in 1973. He admitted to the charges that day and acknowledged he was gay. The full House voted on July 20 to censure Studds, the first time that ever happened for sexual misconduct. Studds refused to apologize. Studds won reelection in 1984 with 56 percent of the vote, and continued to win until he retired in 1996.

REP. ERNIE KONNYU (D-Calif.). In August 1987, two former Konnyu aides complained to the San Jose Mercury News that the freshman Republican had sexually harassed them. GOP leaders were unhappy with Konnyu's temperament to begin with, so it took little effort to find candidates who would take him on in the primary. Stanford professor Tom Campbell ousted Konnyu the following June.

SEN. BROCK ADAMS (D-Wash.). On Sept. 27, 1988, Seattle newspapers reported that Kari Tupper, the daughter of Adams's longtime friends, filed a complaint against the Washington Democrat in July of 1987, charging sexual assault. She claimed she went to Adams's house in March 1987 to get him to end a pattern of harassment, but that he drugged her and assaulted her. Adams denied any sexual assault, saying they only talked about her employment opportunities. Adams continued raising campaign funds and declared for a second term in February of 1992. But two weeks later the Seattle Times reported that eight other women were accusing Adams of sexual molestation over the past 20 years, describing a history of drugging and subsequent rape. Later that day, while still proclaiming his innocence, Adams ended his campaign.

REP. JIM BATES (D-Calif.). Roll Call quoted former Bates aides in October 1988 saying that the San Diego Democrat made sexual advances toward female staffers. Bates called it a GOP-inspired smear campaign, but also apologized for anything he did that might have seemed inappropriate. The story came too close to Election Day to damage Bates, who won easily. However, the following October the ethics committee sent Bates a "letter of reproval" directing him to make a formal apology to the women who filed the complaint. Although the district was not thought to be hospitable to the GOP, Randy "Duke" Cunningham, a former Navy pilot who was once shot down over North Vietnam, ousted Bates in 1990 by fewer than 2,000 votes.

REP. GUS SAVAGE (D-Ill.). The Washington Post reported on July 19, 1989, that Savage had fondled a Peace Corps volunteer while on an official visit to Zaire. Savage called the story a lie and blamed it on his political enemies and a racist media. (Savage is black.) In January 1990, the House ethics committee decided that the events did occur, but decided against any disciplinary action because Savage wrote a letter to the woman saying he "never intended to offend" her. Savage was reelected in 1990, but finally ousted in the 1992 primary by Mel Reynolds.

REP. BARNEY FRANK (D-Mass.). In response to a story in the Aug. 25, 1989, Washington Times, Frank confirmed that he hired Steve Gobie, a male prostitute, in 1985 to live with and work for him in his D.C. apartment. But Frank, who is gay, said he fired Gobie in 1987 when he learned he was using the apartment to run a prostitution service. The Boston Globe, among others, called on Frank to resign, but he refused. On July 19, 1990, the ethics committee recommended Frank be reprimanded because he "reflected discredit upon the House" by using his congressional office to fix 33 of Gobie's parking tickets. Attempts to expel or censure Frank failed; instead the House voted 408-18 to reprimand him. The fury in Washington was not shared in Frank's district, where he won reelection in 1990 with 66 percent of the vote, and has won by larger margins ever since.

REP MEL REYNOLDS (D-Ill.). Freshman Reynolds was indicted on Aug. 19, 1994, on charges of having sex with a 16-year-old campaign worker and then pressuring her to lie about it. Reynolds, who is black, denied the charges and said the investigation was racially motivated. The GOP belatedly put up a write-in candidate for November, but Reynolds dispatched him in the overwhelmingly Democratic district with little effort.

Democrat activist and founder of the Human Rights Campaign, Terry Bean arrested for sodomizing a 15 year old boy.

Falls Church Democratic party chairman Michael Gardener was on trial for molesting 2 girls (ages 9 and 10). He’s also being charged with trying to have the girls killed, presumably so they couldn’t testify.

Democratic candidate Thomas K. Owens was busted for propositioning a 7 year old girl.

How do people keep "straight" faces (no pun intended) when they read stories like this? Doesn't it occur to anyone that these people are crazy as hoot owls? There are so many levels on which it's insane that one doesn't know where to begin!

For starters: "“For the last six months, we have been stuck in Thailand, faced with the possibility of losing our jobs and our house back in the U.S. because we cannot leave. If we leave, we risk the greatest loss of all — our beautiful baby daughter, Carmen,” they write on a crowdfunding page for their legal expenses (which has brought in nearly $30,000 so far), noting on Facebook that they have already wiped out their savings on housing, school for their 2-year-old son (who is with them in Thailand), visa renewals, and food"

...and it's all downhill from there! And people think conservatives are nuts?

Oops, this was already discussed:

http://patrick.net/misc/American+women+rate+80%25+of+men+on+dating+site+as+below+average

What are the odds that an obscure old blog post with data that, on first glance, makes women look shallow and bad, would be posted twice here? Well, when you have a site full of middle aged white dudes who see themselves as victims and who scour the net looking for proof, I'd say the odds are excellent!

Nope, from what I've read cab drivers love it and are jumping ship

Things seem to have changed rather quickly from another iwog proclaimed utopian dream - in this case the greatest invention in the world. Spend some time at this site - http://uberpeople.net/ and read how the bored millennials, paralegals, and just plain old people who need a job etc. and others are doing and what they're feeling, they sure don't seem to share these feelings...

Uber Can't do Math - http://uberpeople.net/threads/uber-cant-do-math.29272/

Uber takes the first $1 as SRF THEN Uber takes 20%. Also your paycheck will say $3.20 but your 1099 at the end of the year will say $4.20 so keep track. You may have to send Uber a 1099 back. And you need to write off the $1 SRFs that Uber pretends it gave you.

WARNING WARNING WARNING BEWARE UBER ICECREAM GENERAL RELEASE - http://uberpeople.net/threads/warning-warning-warning-beware-uber-icecream-general-release.28898/

Uber now spending more on lobbyists than Wal-Mart, Bank of America or Wells Fargo. The stakes for Uber are high. Having to treat drivers like employees would pose huge costs and headaches for a company that says it only manages a smartphone app — and could dramatically affect the start-up's estimated $40-billion valuation. Turning over troves of ride data could lead to even bigger headaches, opening the door to intense regulatory scrutiny of issues such as worker hours, traffic violations, accommodations for the disabled and service in impoverished neighborhoods.
