    After living with someone who makes his living driving our highways,I've heard many rants on people's driving habits and road stupidity from Pete. Sometimes the discussion becomes heated over "Dumb fucking idiots on the road" VS even" dumber Bohunk Yee Haws in Big Rigs taking up space and causing accidents on our highways..."

    Now, I enter the freeway pretty much knowing that there will be dumb asses out there... I drive accordingly. BUT... What I'm trying to understand is, what was CalTrans thinking when they make the speed limit on a 3 lane freeway, 70 mph for domestic vehicles and 55 mph for large trucks, and then allowing those large trucks to operate in the center lane for passing and then returning to the far right lane... not for driving miles with the right lane available, but for the sheer fact that some of them think they can. What you end up with is part of the far left lane passing issue you have. 3 lanes, domestic vehicles across all, going at least, if not more than 70 mph... toss in something that weighs several tons, that is metered to only go up to 55 mph, and sprinkle it here and there on those 2 outer lanes... Who did the math for this stupidness? It wasn't a trucker because they'd just as soon go as fast as the rest...and, it wouldn't be one of us because we'd just as soon have those scary big things out of our way when we're nearing 80 mph... I just don't understand...

    So, what does a diabetes insulin pump company employee do on their job? Oh, wait, how silly of me...The answer's right there before my eyes...

    BD, do you have any sort of understanding to the complexities of modern life or do you just wander from one shitty insult/joke to another?

    I'm sorry, Tom, but, have I ever made points around here? No. I make observations. Sometimes, if I'm feeling ornery, I'll unleash an opinion...but, usually not before fully understanding the point of it all...dumb-dumb asshole.

    Actually, a wise sage told me back when I was a wee tot, to keep my modern life separate from shitty comedians such as yourself, and there wouoldn't be any complexities to worry about. So, there it is...and I didn't listen...

    Why are my pictures posting upside down? I'll post them and they look fine to me and then I'll come back later and it's wrong. Most of the pictures I've posted have been from my MacBook and not my iPad which is what I would normally use. Could that be a factor?

    Because suffering is not meant to be part of the death penalty. Do you have like zero understanding of the principles of the country? Cruel and unusual punishment?

    There have been many principles that have had to change. Falling back on that's the way it's written is bullshit.

    This isn't an incendiary question - Why do you think the principle of not allowing cruel or unusual punishment is unreliable? Do you think it's unreliable meaning we can't rely on the government to follow it? Or the government/their subsidiaries shouldn't have to follow it?
    AC/DC and Steely Dan? Why not just get a Don Henley project on the poster so my dad can bring his R/V, his fourth wife, and make a day out of the damn thing?

    Jesus christ gunz.

    The botched execution is a bad thing for many reasons. Here are two. First, It is about as perfect an example of cruel punishment as one could possibly think of. The US Consititution prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Ergo, the botched execution is unconstitutional. Second, regardless of where you sit on the issue of capital punishment, simple human decency dictates that we don't torture our condemned before executing them. Even if that torture was due to negligence rather than intent, it's still torture, and it's still abhorrent, unless you're Sarah Palin, which you very well may be.

    Well, when those principles are written in the constitution, we sort of are legally required to follow them . . .

    I mean, are you advocating that we amend the constitution to eliminate the prohibition on cruel and unusual punishments?

    So you're suggesting that we implement cruel and unusual punishment?

    She's advocating the idiot's logic of "he made his victim suffer so why should we care if he suffers." Do not engage.

    Are you suggesting that the Bill of Rights is wrong to prohibit cruel and unusual punishment?

    You guys are missing out on the empathy you should all be having for the executioner right now. He had one fucking job to do and look how it went down. We should all be praying for him and his family.
