  • Swiss woman wins headscarf court battle

    But your accusations are a bit unfair -

    I think you're way too harsh and going overboard. I made no accusations against you, unless you think "We have to be thoughtful here, and not go overboard." is an accusation. A blanket ban on wearing a headscarf goes overboard. A headscarf is not dangerous like a full body burka or mask. Solidarity? Really? Some Sikhs have been unfairly attacked and killed because they wear a turban and were mistakenly taken for Muslims. Do you want the same thing to happen to a Christian woman wearing a headscarf like my wife, being mistaken for a Muslim and then beaten or killed? I'm not the one making accusations here. I just ask that you thoughtfully consider why someone is wearing a headscarf. Have a nice day.

    Did you know one can make Nunchucks WITH NO METAL?

    I often print 3D items on my 3D printers. For ideas, I look at 3D hobby sites for downloadable builds. I found several examples of "brass" knuckles made out of plastic. One was real clever, made up of several components that snap together to form the "brass" knuckle weapon that you wear on your hand. The separated components look innocent. I guess I'll go look for plastic nunchucks now.

    Personally I think all Muslim accoutrments should be banned, for the same reason wearing Nazi uniforms should be banned.

    We have to be thoughtful here, and not go overboard. I hate Muslims as much as anyone. However, deciding whether a headscarf is Muslim or not, is difficult. And a blanket ban on wearing a headscarf can take away the need some women have for wearing one. My wife has been battling cancer for years now, and has needed to wear a headscarf when she lost all her hair due to treatments. Many women that lost all their hair and went bald have a need to cover up for their self-esteem. Wearing a wig was not an option for my wife, she preferred to wear a scarf. So next time you see a woman wearing a scarf, consider carefully why she is wearing one.

    And you thought your property was yours!

    A lot of people are forgetting who the property belongs to. Near my location, there is a proposition on the ballot to allow tenants to sub-rent out the property without needing the permission of the owner. Combine that with rent control laws used on the landlord, and any sensible person can see the problems. Landlord can't raise the rent, can't evict the tenant, yet the tenant paying low rent can advertise and rent it out at a higher amount and pocket the difference. Liberals are insane. They don't care who owns the property, as long as others can live off it without the hard work that goes into ownership and maintenance. All liberals should just die so we can have some normalcy in life.

    Methane naturally escapes from the sea floor in many places around the world and can stoke global warming if it reaches the atmosphere.

    This has been known for a very long time, and the global warmers have tried to suppress this information. The Earth releases far more gas and pollutants into the atmosphere than man does. A lot of methane is locked up in ice deep under the sea, and sometimes warms up and escapes. The Japanese and other scientists have been trying to figure out how to mine this stuff from the seabed. If too much gets released, there could be a huge explosion at the surface of the ocean. A lot of this is in the Atlantic Ocean, but as you say there are vents around the planet.

Observe the problems you have on the PC, and your frustration levels. When the PC slows to a crawl and you're dealing with unknown driver issues, finally taking it to an expert to attempt fixing it, you'll be a Mac convert.

As a matter of fact, they still connect to the Internet and can access content. Mine are set up with dual booting, to boot either OS9 or OSX. It is a dog running video graphics compared to modern desktops, but so is a Windows 95 machine from the era (or the later Windows 98 PCs).

    That was a single jerk in SF politics against the Blue Angels. The majority of San Franciscans are fine with Fleet Week and the Blue Angels. And that's the situation even with liberal aholes running around. As for the 2006 incident, a liberal majority on the Board of Supervisors blocked the Iowa from being ported here. The mayor was for it, as was Senator Feinstein. There are other military craft here, and yes there is a loud group of liberal aholes who are against it. Most of them are here from elsewhere in the country, mostly from the northeast USA.

    When I was young, SF was a military town and solidly Republican. Then we got invaded in the mid-1960s by outsiders and it was flipped Democrat. My dad was active career military, and I often visited bases in and around SF with him. At times we would have an Army jeep parked in front of our home. The Presidio, Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, Treasure Island Naval Base, National Guard Armory - all in San Francisco proper. He worked across the Bay Bridge at the Alameda Naval Air Base. Now its all gone, devoid of military presence. My dad passed in the early 1970s, he would have been pissed to see what happened to this once proud military-friendly town.

    You should have recorded this idiot on your phone.

    This was a few years back when it wasn't common for phones to have cameras, back when I was working before retiring. The way I figured it, we were legally crossing in a pedestrian crosswalk and had the right of way, the BMW could clearly see us as a group walking across and legally should yield the right of way to pedestrians when taking a right turn. So he was definitely in the wrong to nearly hit us in an attempt to take the turn in front of us. I had no qualms about punching his rear fender in defiance of the near hit on my co-workers (and me). If he were to fight me in a fist fight, I was up to it; he would lose legally for assault and I was sure I could take him. If he called the cops, the cops would side with me (it just so happened I was working with police at the time). And if he got a lawyer and sued, again I have a couple good lawyers and knew I would win. This BMW driver was an ass and I'd get a good settlement from him.

So there were ample locations to catch photos like this. My wife and I were on the Pier 39 upper floor at the pier end overlooking the bay last weekend, but didn’t have our cameras with us. There was one time a flock of about 20 large birds took off from the roof above us, in a V-formation that perfectly matched the formation of the Blue Angels in the background in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. In the next 3 seconds or so the birds flew towards the Blue Angels just as the jets broke formation to go vertical. Everyone screamed out in delight, especially the ones with cameras. Perfect weather with clear skies, nice hot day.

    BMW and Audi drivers are known to be a-hole drivers. They’re pathetic.

    One time I was walking with a small group of co-workers, we just walked off the curb into the crosswalk and a a-hole BMW driver takes a fast right turn in front of us, narrowly missing two females in front of me. I'm talking close enough to brush against their clothes. I jumped forward and punched the rear fender as it went by. The BMW driver pulled over at the end of the block, looks at the fender and starts screaming at me. Says I should pay for damaging his beamer, demanded my name etc.

    I got vocal with him, we argued for a while. He said he would call the cops, I said go ahead, he nearly killed a couple women in the crosswalk and how would he like to be jailed. My group continued walking and he followed us. I told him if he wants to fight, his fight is with me and leave out my co-workers. Of course he wouldn't fight and started crying about his BMW and what am I going to do about the dent. I told him "Nothing, let it be a lesson to you. And by the way your car is in a tow-away zone.". He ran back to his car and we never saw him again.

    The media can scream out "the sky is green" and some people would believe it. But not most people. The media lies about everything, and most people are not buying these polls. They can say whatever they want about Trump, and I'm still voting for him. Men are not abandoning him.

    If she wins, it will be business as usual, with the slow ascent and dominance of liberal politics.

    The best case scenario. She is incompetent, and just focuses on being a party animal traveling the world and drinking with like-minded fools. Minions behind the scenes are overwhelmed trying to keep the nation running in the midst of debt. We get poorer, more people fall into poverty and joblessness, but it's a slow slide for our nation into despair. That's the best case scenario, because we can change it in another four years.

    I didn’t see military & vets in the list.

    She hates police, Secret Service, and cops in general.

    I am sure you could mount a Ruger 10/22 to it somehow.

    Imagine that robot pacing back and forth near your flagpole. You'll never have to say "Get off my lawn!".

    Retirees can just coast on the massive wealth that they have had the unique opportunity to accumulate...

    Ooh, you're going to piss off some people! But I agree with you, many had a chance and blew it. I know quite a few who sat idly by, blew their money on useless crap, and hocked themselves deep into a hole. Now they're old and it's too late to do much to build wealth. Sad.

    If it went on this long then somebody above her wasn’t doing his/her job either.

    Exactly. In the San Francisco Emergency Communications Department, supervisors at a higher level monitor groups of call-takers and dispatchers. They can jump in at any time if warranted while monitoring the call-takers. Seems that Houston supervisors are not doing their jobs.

    It’s a variation of stickball, an innocent sport. Normally for whacking a tennis ball (that’s what you tell the authorities). But can optionally be used to whack the head of muslim punks who try to assault you (that’s what you don’t tell the authorities).
