Thomas Pickering Email to Hillary Clinton Urged Using Covert Assets to Provoke Palestinian Uprising In Order to Pressure Israel Into a Peace Deal

Oh, and this is the "objective" and "impartial" guy who led the Accountability Review Board which whitewashed Benghazi.

I guess his word is bond.

67 Democrats are always willing to sacrifice our security for a little temporary peace ... but they also want a "piece" of the action for their trouble.

When pressure is applied, it is from their friends on the other side, as it becomes more and more apparent they are not on our side. We must always "stand down".

stand down in Benghazi

stand down in gun free zones

stand down in San Bernadino type attacks, as we were warned by Lynch about complaints about the jihadists

stand down on the border ... let them all in and covertly bus them to wherever

stand down and give BLM room to riot

on and on ... just surrender ...

Not every Facebook meme is to be believed.

Case in point: the current meme being wildly circulated on social media claims that if the current Powerball winnings were divided evenly, every single American would be the recipient of $4.3 million. But just because that division is showcased on a chalkboard, doesn't mean it's true.

In fact, for those a little fearful of long division, a simple calculator will tell you that $1.3 billion divided by 300 million, the population that the meme uses, is only $4.33.

The winner was a young, married soldier, and he bought the million dollar show house (after it had been on the market for two years) for what the buyer wanted. No negotiations, nothing.

To the young man's credit, he met with a financial advisor, and told our neighbors he was bringing in $8,000/DAY through investments.

Our friends said all kinds of people descended on the young guy, and are constantly in and out of the compound.

"The power that people like Obama and Hillary have is that people do the things that she tells them to do. At some point, they will run out of people who are willing to go to prison for them."

This makes me think, why not toss as many as possible in jail. But not so sure. The Democrats do not hesitate to double down. Not many of Hillbillary's allies betrayed them when things looked grim for them back in the 90's. And the Dems backed Obamacare to a man, knowing that the country as a whole was against it and that would likely pay a stiff price at the polls.

204 183 Best way to demonstrate odds for Powerball?

Any number combination you choose has the same odds of winning as picking:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6


Of course, I'll still pick up a ticket for fun.
Posted by: Lauren at January 11, 2016 06:31 PM (LzzEz)

--
That's like saying the odds of a coin toss coming up heads is 50/50.
In reality, it depends on the coin and what side is up when it was tossed. One side of a coin is always slightly heavier, and the side that US up when it is tossed is also more likely to come up. So at best your coin toss odds are 51-49, sometimes even more skewed than that.

The powerball uses the balls in a hoop that get sucked up by a vacuum, right? The odds of consecutively numbered balls getting vacuumed up is lower than non-consecutive balls. Also, not entirely independent. The whiteballs all come from the same hoop. It is independent from the pb hoop.

Just because we can not factor in all the variables of the situation does not mean they do not affect the outcome.

So the theoretical odds of 1 2 3 4 5 6 being drawn are identical to other numbers is only true because the theoretical model is lacking.

207 195 too bad they don't just increase the number of winners, instead of increasing the one prize. One million for a top prize is plenty. As is, the state takes half up front (only pays out half the take), and a third in taxes ... then more in sales taxes ... then the stress kills the winner, after he lost all his friends cuz they kept begging him for money. Safer to stay home. Gambling is baaaad.
Posted by: Illiniwek at January 11, 2016 06:34 PM (5Gpe2)

Well the whole dream the lottery sells is quitting your job and being rich.

$1million lottery winning = $500,000 lump sum. Which is taxed at about 50% with current tax laws (depending on which state you live in, but the feds take 39.something%).

So $250,000.

I don't know about you, but $250,000 would not in any way mean I could quit my job and be wealthy. Shit, could barely even buy a fixer upper for that where I live.

Fine. Put another way, the chances of "21" hitting on roulette are the same every time, regardless of the last number. It could hit 10 times in a row, or not at all for 100 spins.

Each event is independent of previous ones.

Lottery is similar.

After taxes, it did indeed come to around $250,000 and he spent every single nickle of it on a baby blue Rolls Royce convertible. The dude worked at a 7-11. He drove it around and showed it off and the story ended with him asking his gf to lend him money for gas. How long did the guy have it before he had to sell it?

He stinks as a writer, but, hopefully, will get lots of time to practice inside a Mexican hostel for extradited foreigners. (Now, I am not sure who would want the wrinkled and cranky honk-nose, but guess in the dark...I have seriously wondered how in the heck he attracted Robin Wright and Charleze. I mean, Madonna is sort of a given. Their skankiness and common STD's et all). Where was I?

Oh, the story that led the Mexicans to Shorty...He is a total narcissist, which seems to be a common trait of radical liberal wackos, in Hollywood and real life. A lot of I, I, I and an entire paragraph devoted to his penis, held fondly while peeing. wut. But the best, my fellow morons, the BEST whas him farhting when El Chapo hugged him post a taco dinner. This was Sean's light bulb moment of what a gentleman El Chapo is, in not commenting.

As I said before, I thought of the Bible verse in that we are all but a vapor in the universe. Penn, however, is a silent squirrel killer of rancid flatulence.

My favorite Penn moment, of his vast heroism for the common man, was his leaking boat in a swamp in NOLA post Katrina. He brought his cameraman but forgot to plug the boat. He then had to bail it out with a red plastic cup vs heroically rescuing people being raped and cannibalized at the Super Dome.

You know when buying a Rolls does make sense? When you already have enough money. When we lived on the lake, the two lots across the street sold and a guy built a nice 5 bedroom house there. No big deal. Then he moves in and makes friends with the hubby. Super nice guy, he had just sold his second business built with the proceeds from the first business. When he sold the first business, he made enough to start the second business and to buy a Rolls Royce. When he sold the second business he bought his second RR. After driving the first RR for 5 years and putting thousands of miles on it, he sold it for $4,000 more than he paid for it.

268 Was the Rolls specially painted in a black and white cow pattern? Because this might have been someone we know.
Posted by: Cicero (@cicero) at January 11, 2016 06:58 PM (8ZskC)

No, his RR were that very dark green almost black. Hubby went for a spin in it. I did not.

That guy then sold the property to Oral Roberts daughter for her second home. She fenced the entire 2 acres in wrought iron so that her two attack trained German Shepherds (imported from Germany at 10K a pop) could have a nice yard. They drove around out there in a super deluxe golf cart painted bright shiny gold.

269 So, are we going to have a Clemson/Alabama thread?

My late dad was a student at Clemson Military College way back in the day.

They had a live tiger as mascot, and when they played USC, they threw a live chicken into the cage.

Oh, for the days before political correctness.

Ya gotta have the 7 layer dip.

I'll bring the crudities - you know, the damn celery sticks and carrots and cherry tomatoes that nobody really wants to eat, but everyone feels they have to provide so there is something healthy on the table. With ranch dressing dip. I hate ranch dressing but I seem to be the only person in America who does.

Well, you have to give them credit, the Jewish voting solidly Democratic no matter what stacks up right beside the Black vote. There could not be two groups with less self interest in voting for Democrats than Blacks and Jews, yet, what do they do?

Posted by: Lauren at January 11, 2016 07:03 PM (LzzEz)

I believe he chose the nom de guerre "al Baghdadi" because he's from Baghdad (well, i think he's actually from the 'burbs, but ask anyone from Yonkers where they're from and they'll say NYC -- so close enough!)

Mecca, Medina, and Al Quds (Jerusalem) are their goals. The prophecies say so.

Baghdad and Damascus are not super important cities in the Koran.

I thought that too, but no, it's because he wants to command Baghdad. That ISIS intelligence report from a few weeks back explained his intentions.

308 "On a million? Depends on how old you are.


What you need to do is live off the interest and mostly leave principal alone"

well if one were 35 and had some savings and half a house paid for, even a 6% return is 60K per year and one could draw down some capital in time. I bought a small farm for much less than that and enjoy a little income and have the property to enjoy as well. But I'm in cheap middle America, and never spent a lot. Most don't have the discipline and need the bright lights I guess ... which is why so many lotto winners go broke ... like NFL players.

I get joy out of buying something that can produce more than just fluff. Saw mill, tractor, gun ... lol. But I'm strange like that I guess. ha
