chuck lorre productions, number 571

On TV it was titled "The Real Art of the Deal"

begin quote from:
1 day ago - The official home of the Vanity Cards that are shown *briefly* following most Chuck Lorre Productions.


In hindsight, it seems obvious that the final conquest of the United States came about, not as a result of war and invasion, but simply because so many notable Americans were purchasable. History books, if any legitimate ones get written, will someday explain how those in leadership roles, both in and out of government, all had a price. Which, when you think about it, makes a heartbreaking kind of sense. From its inception, our national culture has been predicated on the ruthless pursuit of profit. Sure we all enjoy movies, books and TV shows that portray people putting principles ahead of personal gain. But it might be time to admit that in the real world, grandiose patriotism has always been a mask used to hide banal self-interest. Regardless, the sale is complete. Cash, not Kalashnikovs, sealed the deal.

Age of Consent in Alabama? was 15 now 16 for girls

What does age of consent mean? It means girls don't have to ask their parents permission to have a sexual encounter with a man. It means they can have a sexual relationship with any man without their parents being able to say anything about it legally.

begin quote from:
Age of consent is incredibly important in Alabama. An individual who is 19 years old or older has sexual contact with someone who is younger than 16 but older than 12 has committed sexual abuse.Nov 9, 2016

begin quote from:

Alabama Age of Consent Laws | LegalMatch Law Library

People also ask
What is the lowest age of consent in the United States?
The federal law establishes the age of 12 as the minimum age of consent, while the age at which there are no restrictions for consensual sexual activities is 18 (sex with someone 12-18 is not illegal per se, but can still be open to prosecution under certain circumstances).

end quote: You know I'm not sure whether this clarifies Roy Moore for us in other states outside Alabama or just confuses this issue much more. However, to make sense of Alabama this might be important to know.

Can a Bible Museum in Washington DC be neutral: if it is generally protestant in nature?

Here are some of my questions that have never been usefully asked:

Why didn't Jesus write the Bible?
Why have many of the books of the bible like the one from Judas and others been removed during the two Councils of Nicea? Why was reincarnation removed from the Bible. I know the answer to this one by the way. So, Kings could enslave more people with Hell, fire and brimstone and no second chances through reincarnation.

Why was Jesus deified when most people saw him as a man and a prophet at the time?
This I know the answer to: So, no one else could possibly aspire to be anything like Jesus ever again.

Why were people regularly killed by kings who shared a different view of Christianity than the Kings?

Why were the books of the bible written often 20 to 40 to 50 years after Jesus was gone?

How can you have a neutral version of the bible when millions have died who disagreed with so many aspects of it's contents the last 2000 years or more.

The answer is:

You cannot have a neutral protestant version of the Bible. You would have to at the very least include a Catholic version, a Coptic Version, a Russian Orthodox version, a Greek Orthodox version, an Islamic Version etc. etc. etc.

So, even saying that your museum is neutral is ridiculous to any Bible Scholars on earth. Only if you think the people coming to this museum are mentally deficient could you say any of these things. And even then most people with any education are only going to laugh in your face.

How would the middle Class fare under the Senate tax bill?

 The truth of it is: That the rich do well over 10 years. Middle Class and poor actually lose ground in comparison. In addition their health care becomes more expensive and 13 million lose health coverage completely
This harsh reality likely makes the Senate Bill: Doa (Dead on arrival) . If you are wondering who this bill is written for you have to say the rich.

How would the middle class fare under the Senate tax bill?

Your video will play in 00:17

Republicans and Democrats offer wildly different interpretations of what the latest version of the Senate tax bill would do for the middle class and other income groups.

Republicans generally say it will be great for everyone.
Democrats say the bill will hurt most everyone except the wealthy and corporations.
Powered by
Both sides choose to highlight different measures, or stress the estimated effects of the bill in different years.
The truth is there are many ways to determine how a tax plan might help or hurt income groups.
One key assessment is what happens to after-tax income. That's a measure economists use to assess an income group's well-being once tax changes are made, said Martin Sullivan, chief economist of Tax Analysts.
And it's one way to measure how progressive tax changes would be. The more after-tax income rises for low- and middle-income households as a result of those changes, the better off they'll be.
To see how middle-income and other households might fare under the Senate bill, CNNMoney calculated after-tax income changes using distribution tables created by the Joint Committee on Taxation, the nonpartisan tax scorekeeper for the House and Senate.
One caveat: the JCT's analysis excludes certain measures in the bill -- including the doubling of the estate tax exemption, which would disproportionately benefit higher income groups if it were included.
Broadly speaking, middle-income groups would see their after-tax incomes rise on average in four of the five years the JCT analyzed. But those increases are mostly modest and often less than that of the wealthiest households.
What's more, the size of the increases for the middle class shrink over time, in part because their tax cuts in the bill would expire after 2025, and because the Senate bill would slow inflation adjustments in the tax code. That means over time more income from the middle class could be taxed at higher rates and the value of their tax benefits would decline, according to Lily Batchelder, a former chief tax counsel on the Senate Finance Committee.
Here's how the numbers break out from year to year:
In 2019: Every income group would end up with more after-tax income. Those making between $50,000 and $75,000 would see theirs rise by 1.3%, less than the 3% jump for those making between $500,000 and $1 million, or the 2.1% bump for households making more than $1 million.
In 2021: The $200,000 to $500,000 income group would do best, seeing a 2% rise in after-tax income. But those making $40,000 to $50,000 would only see a 0.5% bump. Those making $50,000 to $75,000 again get a 1.3% increase, just a little below the 1.5% jump in after-tax incomes for those making $1 million or more.
In 2023: The $30,000 to $40,000 band would see zero change while those making less would actually see slightly less after-tax income than they would if no tax changes were made.
Groups making $40,000 or more would have a little more money after paying Uncle Sam. But those who would enjoy the biggest bumps are those making from $500,000 to $1 million (2%) and those making $200,000 to $500,000 (1.6%).
In 2025: Those making $30,000 to $40,000 would see zero change in their after-tax income while those making less would see a less than 1% drop in their after-tax incomes.
By contrast, those making between $500,000 and $1 million would see a 2% jump.
And those making $50,000 to $75,000 along with those making more than $1 million would get less of a pop, at 0.8%.
In 2027: Every group would experience drops in average after-tax income or no change, except for those at the high end. Households bringing in $500,000 or more would see tiny increases of less than 0.5%.

Democrats tend to admit wrongdoing with women whereas Republicans Don't!


I think respect for women in a certain way is more common among most Democrats than especially among Southern Conservative Republicans. So, at this point in time Moore and Trump would be in this class of Republicans that do everything and admit nothing. There is also the sort of KKK attitude by both Trump and Moore that seems to allow this kind of behavior where you do anything and then say another.

So, in the end Democrats are more likely to admit wrongdoing but those wrongdoings are very slight compared to Moore and Trump.

So, basically this just means you cannot believe ANYTHING that Moore or Trump say about anything.

Franken's accuser only wants an apology that's all. Whereas Moore and Trump are both facing Jail time!
If someone thinks they could to jail for something like they did like Moore and Trump do, often people lie like they do.

Why am I asking about photos?

I have taken at least 5,000 photos since I was in paris in 2009. I started loading them all into Iphoto then in 2009. I likely have at least 1,000 photos of my family in Paris and Nice when we took a bullet train from Paris to Nice on the Cote D'azure then (French Riviera). So, I don't want to lose them all. This last year though I bought a new Macbook pro because I couldn't update the operating system anymore for my 2009 Macbook pro anymore. However, now I have to try to upload all my photos of my family and myself traveling all over the U.S. and world. But, realized most of my normal ways of doing this I just wasn't sure of anymore.


Because up to about 2005 I stayed up to date on all PC stuff since I bought my first one in 1987. I bought my first computer (a TRS-80) for $800 in 1978. I studied Cobol and Fortran in college in the 1960s and worked in the computer field until I burnt out because there was no RAM available then and this made programming about 100 times more tedious than it needed to be especially during debugging of a program (unless you worked for NASA or someone like that who actually had RAM then).

RAM just means random access memory which was one of the benefits of miniaturization along with increasing speed exponentially of all computers while bringing down costs.

Anyway, after studying multiple computer languages including HTML by 2005 I was kind of burned out studying newer and newer generations of computer stuff having kept up the pace from 1965 until 2005 and deided to learn only a bare minimum because of increased speed (exponentially now) of obsolescence of all computer engineering information to the point where it is almost to the point where it is almost more useful to ask your computer wha the latest information is that is if you can formulate a useful question about it.

But, to even be able to formulate a useful question you have to know enough to even do that which is more and more difficult every year now for everyone.

So, the real problem is now "Do you really want to spend 3 months learning about something you might have to forget 1 or 2 years from now?"

And that is kind of where I find myself after studying about computers since 1965 constantly until around 2005 when I began to back off mostly because understood PCs from the beginning but then
as I switched from PCs to macs but never really knew macs even now at a core level like I once did all PCs.

So, now when I want to copy my pictures from my 2009 Macbook pro I find it is not that easy. So, I tried to download to "Google Drive" so after putting about 5 gigabytes in it is starting to freeze up on me so I can't do anything through my 2009 macbook pro. So, my latest idea is to get a 32gigabyte or larger thumb drive which is what I'm going to try next. I figure I could then download my pictures then to both my new Imac and my wife's desktop Imac so I don't lose any of the pictures. There are just too many pictures right now to consider putting them all on DVDs or CDs to me at present. Though DVDs likely would be one way not to lose them to solar flares or nuclear flashes or any EMP device that might occur around anyone's home which permanently destroys all magnetic memory.

Whereas the only real enemies of DVD storage or CD storage would be heat dust and possibly muddy dirty water flooding your homes.

It is only ghosting on the screen for that one article

About once or twice a year I find parts of some articles (Ghost) or whatever you want to call it. I'm not sure the cause of it (likely some software fluke of some kind). But, it is only on this one article for some reason this time.

It depends very strongly on the resolution of your pics, Ctreyes.  A pic that is a jpeg with some 5000 pixels on the long side are on the order of 3 megabytes so 10gb/3mb = 3333 pics.  Other less compressed formats can be much larger.  Lower resolution jpegs with 2000 pixels on the long side will be on the order of 700 kilobytes so 10gb/700kb = 14, 200 pics.

Don Lind said:

What Robert said... at the default upload size, you get ABOUT 4,000 photos per gigabyte.  That is, the photos are about 250KB each as uploaded (as opposed to about 3MB out of the camera).  So 10GB would let you store about 40,000 photos at the default 1600x1200 or so upload size.

If I try to upload the original size photos, each photo is 3MB or so.  That gives me about 330 photos per gigabyte.  So, 10GB would let you store about 3,300 full resolution photos (more or less).

If you uploaded them at 600x800 pixels, you'd get about 4 times more photos, so you'd get maybe 160,000 photos in 10GB... but why would you do that?  :-)

The following is for an apple format but assuming compression algorithm:

Q: How much space required for 12,000 jpg images?

Is there any experience about how much space is required for 12,000 jpg images, where the average image size is 6 MB - assuming that there is a compression algorithm used on the iPad.
