Whatever, just don't call it marriage. I will pray for their souls, but if homosexuals choose to sin (e.g. fornication outside of married bonds), they will have to answer for their sins just like the rest of us.

They can have the best of both worlds if they remain celebate in their civil union. All the tax, healtcare, etc. benefits, and not commiting a grave sin. Win-win.

usmc, it could be your poor ability to communicate in writing that is hampering your pursuits. I cannot fully understand your scrawling, but I take it you feel you have been victimized in some way.

Ummm perhaps hire a finance director who pays attention to both sides of the ledger?! $1.6 million shortfalls don't just sneak up on you.

GrumpyGus 1 year, 1 month ago on Climate contradiction: Less snow, more blizzards

Well only me and the same climatologists that only a few years ago were wringing their hands over non-existant global warming. Their models don't work beyond a few months. From one year to the next, rarely. Beyond that, never. I always joke that the local meteorologists can't predict the weather unless they are standing out in it. These climatologist do the same thing. "Well, this winter weather is exactly what we should be expecting given current conditions of the global climate.". No kidding? They would say the same thing if we had 1 foot of snow on a weekly basis throughout winter. I call BS.

The only problem with all of this, the "experts" now think the world is no longer warming. Whoops! Back to the drawing board. On second thought, forget it. There are very short, short, long, and very long term weather/climate patterns. You truly can't predict beyond the very short term patterns (and a high percentage of the time the "experts" mess that up too), so don't waste your/my time.

Right, because it could never be the fault of a poor teacher or a poor curriculum that has gotten away from the basics. It's more important to teach kids how bad humans are in global warming/climate change 101, and social justice 201, and the government will take care of you 206. If I was a kid, I would tell my school to pound sand too, because I will leave a modern highschool dumber than when I started.

GrumpyGus 1 year, 2 months ago on City, others struggle to attract, retain IT personnel

Pay drives IT. Once you compensate well enough you will bring in the types of people who drive the cultural change you are talking about. You can't change a city's culture without changing the types of people that inhabit it.

You will find reasearch study after research study that talks about org. culture, management, and etc. as the driving force behind employee attraction and retention. It is all Barbara Streisand. Pay is what attracts and retains the best and the brightest, the org. culture becomes better because you have the best and the brightest working for you.

At that point pay is a non-factor, that's why non-pay issues always top these lists in studies.

GrumpyGus 1 year, 2 months ago on Ravens beat 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl

This is why I can't watch the NFL regularly. The refs always come into question in the end if the score is closer that 28 points. In this case I can see the 49ers having a beef with the refs most of the game (e.g. running into the kicker, offsides on the 2-pt conversion, and the non-call on 4th down). Can't recall any similar pro-49er calls. Oh well, Beyonce was smokin' hot.
