Waitlisted at Loyola LA. Pretty much what I expected. Don't think I'll be staying on the list.

Can one really "purchase" a hooker? I thought they were only rentable.

Cal is indeed expensive. I live about 70 miles from LA, near Edwards AFB (where the shuttle sometimes lands). I live in an uninciorporated area of Kern county, just north of the LA county line. I bought my house in 98 for 70k. It is 1500sqft, relatively small back yard 3bd/2ba built in 93(?). I have refinanced a couple times and took out some cash. I now owe about 116k now and my mortgage is about 900/month. I plan to sell in the next couple months and expect I will get 260-280k. Comparable houses in my town are going for higher, but I will likely price slightly below the market in order to make a quick sale. The housing market in the area to which I plan to move is similar to here. If I were going FT to LS, I would stay put and just make the hour+ commute to LA, but I can't see doing that every night after working all day. Can't go FT cause I am the sole provider of my family. If I was moving to Cal (from elsewhere) to go to LS and really wanted to buy rather than rent, I would look at houses here. Yeah, 280-300K seems like alot of $$$ to me, considering what I originally paid, but it's cheap with respect to LA/OC median prices.

(This is not intended as an attack on you at all, MrSmittie, but...)
People who say God Bless America.

If this country ever operates under [what I perceive to be as the most important of the] truly Christian guidelines (whatever you do unto the least of these, you do unto me and the like) then maybe.

But I don't really see why God should be blessing this country right now.


That is all.

I'll buy that. Except that (my) God is merciful and will bless even those of us who do not deserve it.

I doubt he would appreciate his own mother's comments.
Why?

Because he volunteered to serve our country, and volunteered to engage in overtly dangerous operations while serving in-country. He is a HERO, and heros generally do not like bad mouthing about their commander-in-chief, and about the mission they are attemptimg to accomplish. Probably not even if it is their own mother. At least that's the way it is with the war veterans that i personally know and love. If that is not how sheehan's son felt, he should (and probably would) not have served so valantly.

Smittie you still need to STFU.

But on to your ridiculous statements.  I work with vets and active duty troops EVERYDAY, to boot I come from a miltary family, so please don't go whoring out your military family/friends/ cousins/dog walkers as reasons that you know what you're talking about.  All my friends and family who are vets/ active duty HATE this war and the president--what do you have to say to that? You think they should STFU and do whatever a sh!t for brains president says?  The same pres and gov who can't take care of them when they come home and need helath care and their wives needs help? I see it EVERYDAY! 

So in conclusion this post is not hijaking, because Simitte you need to STFU about cindy AND the war(s). 

Actually, I do work with active military everyday, and I also live in a military family – on both sides. My brother has been in the Marines for eighteen years, my father-in-law just retired after 30+ years of service, my brother in law is active duty, as is his wife, my other brother in-law just got out and his wife just re-enlisted, several of my co-workers are active reserve members, and I  work at an air force base. I am not “whoring” anything. I am just stating how they feel about the situation. Unfortunately, their voice is often overshadowed by the shouts of the protestors whose freedom they are protecting. On the other hand, perhaps they quiet themselves (whether they agree or disagree with their commander-in chief) and just focus on doing the job at hand because they believe it serves a greater good.

I (and those I know) do not LIKE this war, but the fact remains that we are involved and we can’t just walk away. Some of those that are doing the work believe that they are accomplishing some good for a historically oppressed people, and some of us believe that the world is a better place and just little safer with Saddam out of power. 

As for your friends/family/acquaintances who have or do serve, please tell them I said THANK YOU for their service and their sacrifices. And tell them it is/was not in vain.

God bless you and yours, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

In any case, I’m done and I will STFU now.

yeah, but confucius hated his job.  having to stuff all those little pieces of paper in those cookies.  his last statement was

'i'm going on break.  you can kiss my ass!'

Funny, That's EXACTLY what my witer said to me last night at Wong Ho's. Coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!
