Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'm not normally inclined to share much personal information, but I found an old photo of me and my childhood mentor. https://images.dailykos.com/images/102651/story_image/peabodyII.JPG?1409245477 Mrs psu_dad : You have brown hair. And you have 10 fingers. Me : So it's a bad photo. Sue me.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

The information doesn't have to be released to the seller as to why someone id denied a purchase, just that they are.

No, but it would have to be released by a health care provider to whatever government agency does the background check.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

But, after Sandy Hook poll numbers showed that an overwhelming number of people in the US wanted changes like increased background checks to screen for mental health issues and other things and none of that happened. How is that possible without violating the HIPAA laws? I don't believe medical car...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Then why does the gun lobby have no influence in MA? Why is the AR-15 illegal here? Why were bump stocks made illegal here 5 minutes after the Las Vegas shooting?

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Apparently the Florida State House voted down a motion today on a bill that would ban "assault rifles" and large capacity magazines. And the vote wasn't close. Not that I'm surprised.

Re: 2017-18 baseball off season

It's being reported that the contract is front-loaded ... two years for 50M then 3 years for 60M. And he has an opt-out after 2 years. So I suppose if he has two great years, he can try for bigger bucks. Either way is fine. At least they won't be paying him until he's 40. Odd team. They have a large...
