I'm not sure why, but the combination of those two smileys make me laugh and is easily the third funniest thing I've seen this morning (behind the Amazon reviews thread and the new KISS Mr. Potatohead collector's edition).

What I want to know is if Bosk goes native and flips out in one these religious themed threads, do you get to ban him?

That would end up in a paradox.

I have that power, yes.  Although more likely, he'd ban himself (which he's done a couple of times)...

Or rather, libertarian is what some anarchists* claim to be while talking to statists until they become libertarian, at which point the facade is dropped.

Quote from: Forward email I received
Memo - To All Employees

As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our new President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that our clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8%, but since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our        economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead.

This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did.. I strolled through our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I'm giving it to them.

  Sincerely, The Boss

Sigz, I think it's a joke.  You'd soooo get sued if you publicly did this. (Not that some Boss's didn't)

Emindead, hmm, the president as a manager?  That the country looks to the president as a manager is a large part of the problem in the first place.
