    Default Check out the front page of NY Times website today

    Chevy Malibu is advertised. The statement reads: "The car you CAN'T ignore".


    It seems to me the advertisement implies there is something about the car that people cannot freely ignore but must check it out and perhaps buy it. Doesn't sound like much freedom to me.

    So if I put thread up that says " You must give money to Ugly" you dont have the freedom to ignore that and not send me money.

    Well then

    Send ugly money now, you can not ignore this request.

    But your so-called "freedom to ignore" is a limited freedom. You are telling us just part of the story and making it sound like it's a complete book. You overlook the reality that you may hold undue influence over someone--not in small part because you have millions of dollars and an army of persuaders at your employ. Already sully and sgallan are offering to send you money.

    You have children not of age. I doubt you would ever argue they have the freedom to ignore something you ask them to do. Yet, that's the sort of claim you're making with Big's example.

    Undue influence? What kind of influence is due and what kind is not?

    Still, everyone has the power to ignore -- and tha tpower is unlimited. You have personally chastised some in the Republican party for not having the ability to ignore the president, yet you find it OK when other people don't ignore poor financial deals. That sounds much like hypocrisy.

    We ignore things all the time -- everyday. If you succumb to temptation and suggestion as easily as you claim, you will find yourself in trouble. Personal responsibility still exists.

    While Ugly reads us only part of the book, Skipster goes further and tries to slip on a new cover or cuts out select pages in order to get readers to think it stands for something not in the text at all.

    How much money?
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    You messed up ugly..... that works once on me.... but only once.... and since you weren't specific..... I allotted you a dime. Where do I send it?
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Too bad they don't make Malibu-framed El Camino's anymore.

    I used to have one. Too bad I don't got no pictures right now.

    How so?? I don't really understand how you came up with that, so please explain it to me. Please tell me where in my text that I was wrong.
