    Where was this chit in the Beyond 2000 shows I watched as a kid.

    I thought we'd have flying cars by now, not bullshit.

    This was less of a win and more of a they were forced, imo. We were the last hold out and they really had no choice.

    Was against the state and their claim rather than who else has what. IL could have passed less than wr have and been OK in his ruling. May issue rather than Shall issue etc..


    Posner, in his ruling, said...

    "We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home. The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside"


    “a Chicagoan is a good deal more likely to be attacked on a sidewalk in a rough neighborhood than in his apartment on the 35th floor of the Park Tower.”

    Weak NBA. Players just letting Curry mosey down the court. Players should be in his face. Bumping into him. In his face refusing to give him space as he approaches the free throw line. Nope. So kind and nice.

    Why do they need 30 days? Permanent archiving?

    You are a sane, rational adult male. WTF are you doing watching the NBA- even a playoff game? Bigger joke and less entertaining than a Harlem Globetrotters game. At least with the Globetrotters the audience was in on the joke.

    Taking a damn quiz whenever you’re trying to pump gas. I just want to pull up and pump, and no I don’t want a car wash!

    Sounds like an opportunity for me. I already own a few rentals in not so great neighborhoods so now I'm going to purchase more and sell "impoverished" addresses to hopeful college students.

    This is just ridiculous.

    To add on to this, when paying at the pump.

    Would you like a receipt?

    Yes

    Please see cashier for receipt.

    I paid at the pump for a reason.......

    I think the last time I actually went to a bank branch was around 12 years ago and that was to open my accounts.

    and to add on to that- being asked PRIOR to pumping if you want your receipt; then getting the "please see cashier for receipt" AFTER you're done pumping.

    that one is especially vexing. I have a fleet car and have to return my receipts at the end of every month.

    ...first world problems.

    So 1:17 AM? Or are you in CA looking for your next house, because ILL was not liberal enough for you?

    Hour and fifteen minutes at the department of motor vehicles. For 5 minutes worth of service.

    Hello ACT or trade school. Forget all the years of hard work that kids have done that live in those areas and still bust their butts to make good grades and qualify for Gifted & Talented programs or the Science, Technology, Electronics and Math programs. Someone needs to remind the SAT board about Dr. Ben Carson. Agree with his politics or not, he is a straight-from-poverty to best-in-the-world at brain surgery. This country needs more examples like him.
