I just remembered yelling "they're gonna let me be a lawyer! Me! Why would they do that?

I admit that I'm a total font and layout geek. I've been known to fuss with the captions to our cases because the whitespace isn't right. That makes this even funnier.

A couple of thoughts after quick review - this is the approach that Levin's stated all along which I think is brilliant, what with it being my approach as well. Throwing in the comments about the line item veto is a great touch since it directly addresses the justicablity argument.
The point about reliance and the impact on *all* current insurance contracts are also well made and ones that I haven't seen addressed too much. Honestly, this will rewrite thousands upon thousands of currently existing contracts immediately. That gives everyone with insurance standing. This also is going to be an enormous cost on insurance companies.
This is also pretty aggressive language, believe it or not. The comments about the Court needing to step up to its co-equal role are both an appeal to the Court's vanity and a shot across the bow about this being the last attempt to constrain Congressional excess.
Hopefully it won't come to that, but if the Slaughter Rule is used and the bill is deemed passed, the briefing on the 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss is where the real fun will be.

I'm all excited, it's my second favorite blogiday*.
I always try to eat baby meat today, veal and lamb especially. Last year I made spagetti sauce with veal and lamb meatballs.
Tonight, for dinner I'm going to a great tapas place on King St in Old Town Alexandria. It's called Las Tapas (funnily enough) and it's fantastic. Tonight I'll have the lamb, veal, rabbit and quail. Too bad they don't have squab. Oh well.
Remember what the eminent philosopher and foot-up-yer-ass-er, Red Forman, says about non-meat "food" stuff: "That's not food, that's what food eats!"
EATAPETA! It makes baby hippies cry.
*My favorite blogiday, of course, is Buy A Gun day, it's coming up in only a few weeks on 4/15. It gets more and more fitting each year.
I'm getting an Uberti Lighting in .45 Colt to go with my Uberti top break in same that I got last year. I'm a big fan of rifle/pistol combos.
Any morons off those silly restraining orders who are participating should send me a pic of their acquisition(s) and I'll post them all on 4/15.
Send pics to veeshir at the hotmail labeled "BAG Day" and whatever you want to be called in the post.
Hopefully mine will be in by then and I'll be able to post the pic. Uberti either gets you the gun a couple days later or you wait for a long, long, time as they send to Italy.

You know what I love best about this (okay second or well third or well something best)? This is just your basic teenybopper sneak out of the house song. Just. You know. With girls. That's faboo.

That's the image the Cookeville Times (in CA) used to illustrate a short blurb on a gun show.
I have to admit, Gun Fearing Wussy gets off a good one. That made me laugh.
I'm going to use that to illustrate all gun-related posts not involving my arsenal.
I'm not sure which I like better, the 5 flashlights or the Swiss Army knife.

And it even dispenses cocktails! I'm afraid that if it got any fucking cooler, it would rip a hole in the universe, destroying us all.

Payless! See, not every shoe I lust after costs an entire paycheck. Just. Most.
Because I love me and I should have nice things.

I'm something of a coffee addict, although I've never been a huge fan of Starbucks - their beans just taste a little burned to me. Not to say that I'm not a fairly regular patron of Starbucks - I am, 'cause they're just so damn convenient - but I don't love their coffee.
I think I'm about to become a more frequent patron of Starbucks in support of this awesomeness:
Coffee chain Starbucks Corp. is sticking to its policy of letting customers carry guns where it's legal and said it does not want to be put in the middle of a larger gun-control debate.
The company's statement, issued Wednesday, stems from recent campaign by some gun owners, who have walked into Starbucks and other businesses to test state laws that allow gun owners to carry weapons openly in public places. Gun control advocates have protested.
Now, gun control advocates are protesting the policy. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, launched a petition drive demanding that the company "offer espresso shots, not gunshots" and declare its coffeehouses "gun-free zones." And Wednesday, that group delivered 28,000 signatures to the coffee giant's headquarters in Seattle.
Businesses can choose to ban guns from their premises. And Starbucks said Wednesday that it complies with local laws in the 43 states that have open-carry weapon laws.
"Were we to adopt a policy different from local laws allowing open carry, we would be forced to require our partners to ask law abiding customers to leave our stores, putting our partners in an unfair and potentially unsafe position," the company said in its statement.
It said security measures are in place for any "threatening situation" that might occur in stores.
Starbucks asked both gun enthusiasts and gun-control advocates "to refrain from putting Starbucks or our partners into the middle of this divisive issue."
Pardon the rather bad pun, but way to stick to your guns, Starbucks! Fuckin' right.
h/t to @gabrielmalor, who points out, "Hey, they've been spot-on about him so far!" If they don't get their Pulitzer for this, there's no justice.
