    distance...

    They used to do this at that raw speaker (as in driver) shop on Shotwell
    in SF. [Name escapes me.] Shotwell is a street that is appropriately
    named. Far better to spend a bit of money and use Fort Mason by the Marina.

    The economy is absolutely picking up. A few weeks ago I was in San
    Francisco and I only had to deal with 3 panhandlers in my trip from the
    BART station to MOMA. Usually I see half a dozen.

    Trust me, panhandling is their job. One of the papers years ago had some
    staffer get all scruffy and do pan handling. The take was about $80,
    which was double the minimum wage at the time. Oh, and their tax rate
    was less than Romney's 15%.
     
  4. I assume it's a take-off on "Burning Man", rather than a literal
    expression of how the amplifier might operate in your house.

    So, an attempt to be edgy and whatever else that name implies.
    There's a coffee shop called St. Moritz right beside a ski slope that
    has a cosy-looking fireplace right in the middle.

    The flames are (re)produced on a flat-screen monitor, the ski slope
    (all two football fields of it) and snow are artificial, and it might
    be 40-50°C outside. About $80 for a day pass including ski lift and
    jacket, $50 for a couple of hours.

    You know you're dealing with the lunatic fringe in consumer electronic
    design, when 'burning' is considered a heart-warming feature of the
    finished product in your living room.

    This in an era when flames are displayed without heat, heat is
    produced without flame and anything producing smoke is considered to
    be a health hazard, if not simply unsafe.

    Ditto on the "Burning Man" spinoff. Some people don't know that Burning
    Man started with the "burners" on Ocean Beach. Maybe as early an 1985.
    Burning on the beach was never legal, but I mean, hey, it is a beach. It
    is not like you are going to set something valuable on fire. It wasn't
    like the fire department was going to waste their time putting out the
    fire. But the city cracked down from time to time, so it was moved to
    the Nevada. I never saw any naked women around the fire, though lots of
    dope smoking.

    The naked women were further north, over at Baker Beach.

    Probably give as much to charity as Democrats, like Biden, too.

    Romney gives very little to charity. Hard to tell though since he won't
    release his tax returns. Maybe a few years ago he gave money to a charity.

    Romney gives plenty of money to his church, but I don't consider that
    charity. Rather he is trying to buy his way into heaven. Basically
    payback for all the people he fucks over making money.

    Well you do have to had it to old Willard for finding a good way to stay
    out of Vietnam. When the rest of his generation was coming home in a
    box, Willard was saving the French from their evil Catholicism.

    Is there is do not convert list for the Mormon church.? I'd hate to have
    those book of Mormon thumpers baptizing me into their religion after I'm
    dead.

    Starting off with a triple of lies like that, there is no reason to
    read further. You lefties have lost it.

    It just proves that liberalism displays a character flaw. I do hope miso
    will take some good video of his head exploding next Tuesday and post it up
    on utube.

    That's to the Mormon church. Miso is right, it is not a charity.

    So all churches, such as the catholic church, are not charities? The law
    says differently, moreover i seriously doubt that the Mormon church gets
    more than a third of that 30%. That is 20% to other charities. How much
    do you contribute? How much does Obummer?

    Starting off with a triple of lies like that, there is no reason to
    Much like Willard, you fail to produce anything factual. You call me a
    liar, but don't explain what the lies are. This is also known as just
    blowing it out your ass.

    Romney hasn't taken a reporter's question for 3 weeks now.

    That isn't the question. Nor are many people in a position to give away
    30% of their income. The point is giving the money to your church is not
    like giving money to Oxfam, Doctors without Borders, Habitat for
    Humanity, etc.

    I didn't denigrate the Mormon religion. I stated exactly what Romney was
    doing in France. What the hell else do you think a missionary does but
    to convert others to their religion. And if they can't get you when you
    are alive, they will get you when you are dead.

    "When asked by Newsweek if he has done baptisms for the dead -- in which
    Mormons find the names of dead people of all faiths and baptize them, as
    an LDS spokesperson says, to "open the door" to the highest heaven-- he
    looked slightly startled and answered, "I have in my life, but I haven't
    recently.""

    that's act only going to work if God is on their side, else it's just
    a lot of yacking and spashing about.
     
  17. Guest

    you have no problem denigrating political views and opinions
    you disagree with, why is religion getting a free pass?

    You started off with (at least) three lies. That's a fact. After
    three lies, a liar isn't worth listening to. Sorry, try the truth
    some time.

    So tell me, just what is the faithful one Christian sect doing wrong by
    trying to improve the chances of someone of another Christian sect of
    going to heaven or having a higher standing therein if either is possible.
    Many Christian sects have done this from time to time, including the
    Catholic church.
