Irony police, arrest me if you will, or at the very least, handcuff me and toss me to the ground where I will be beaten and stripped naked and tazed, but isn't it ironic that these are Orange County republicans, and don't they love their tax cuts and their republican policies which have stripped schools of resources and increased class sizes to the point that volunteers are now necessary to maintain order?

If both of these geniuses get convicted, they lose parental custody of the son. A brilliant, well thought out plan altogether.

Not necessarily the case. When I was a tyke my parents (who made many bad decisions) somehow thought that they could buy an RV in California, take a family trip to Florida, move there and then trash the RV, hide it and claim it was stolen.

They were both convicted but allowed to serve sentences separately (mom first, then dad) because of us kids.

Are your parent's names Earl & Joy?

Do you have an Uncle Randy?


No, but I have many stories that sound like they could have come from that show.

Why? This may shock you, but some of us were paying attention that day in the third grade when we went over your and you're.

This thread is a damn Rotsky family reunion.


I thought someone must have fixed the headline based on how many people said it was incomprehensible, but apparently they just can't read.

firefly212: justanothersumguy: This is how I figure it...The guy phoned in an "anonymous" tip... but used a land line. The address would have been recorded by dispatch. The cops simply went to the address and were lucky enough to find the guy on surveillance. He was then either identified by the volunteer, or they got his plate from the recording. Also the cops most likely did not believe the "I have no idea how it got there" excuse because of the timing of the call... Let's say dick for brains called in at 9 AM... Now you have a half dozen people standing around telling you (the cop) that she had been there since 6 AM... "Hmm..ok.. Let's take a drive over to that hotel Lou...ise."
It's Elementary.

Given that she was only detained for two hours, I'm thinking there was more wrong with the story, eg, the caller said he saw her driving erratically, but if she had been at the school for a couple hours already, cops would have noticed a cold engine... or he might have gotten extra dumb and said I saw her driving erratically on X road, where X would have been a less than believable point not between the suspects home and the school. Either way,2x possession,2x distribution, 2x add-on penalties for doing it in a school zone... these people are going to see the inside of a cell for a while... I feel bad for their kids, they had crap parents to start with, and now they're stuck in one of the least functional foster services in the nation.



more than likely one parent (whichever has the least to lose) will take the charge and the kids will stay with the other. either that or go to a family member. foster service isnt the only option.

the parents might also just get rehab/probation/parenting classes. they are lawyers, ya know.

Very likely neigher is going to jail over this, but it looks loke dad has already been fired and both are more than likely going to be disbarred over this if the mother files a complaint with the Bar.

Gonna be very tough for wither to find work after this. Guys with JDs and major law firm experience applying for non-lawyer jobs raise all sorts of red flags in most HR depts.

Ha. For something like this, I doubt they are getting off easily. Not relevant though - even if the charges were plead down to jaywalking and they were given an hour of community service, both of them are LAWYERS. That means both of them are shortly out of a job, and most likely forever. That kind of ethics violation unequivocally means losing their licences for at least some period of time, but again likely forever. They aren't going to be allowed to practice law again anytime soon, which means both are now effectively unemployed, are losing current clients (and opening themselves up to suits from that), and facing a lot of legal fees themselves.

Its the perfect storm; they are homeless very, very soon, regardless of legal consequences.

My freind is a teacher in a rather rough part of Orange County. After heaing about how bad some of the kids are, I suggested she might want to teach in Irvine (where TFA is out of). She proceeded to tell me she's more concerened about parents in a city like Irvine, than kids in a city like Santa Ana.

You must be young and therefore a skewed impression of what someone in their late 30's typically looks like. I think she looks awful, but the fact that she's had work done probably subconsciously makes me think she looks older than 38.

Yeah... I'm glad to see that this is covered and knew the nazi's would be out. It took me a couple of passes to realize it was just clumsy, not wrong.

I'm not the best writer in the world, my spelling and my grammar suck, and Fark Grammar Nazis have helped me to be more mindful of how I type when I'm on here.and for that, I'm thankful to them. but, I'll still continue to type conversationally when I'm on here, or other websites.

corn-bread: SlothB77: who doesn't lock their car?


Most of the time I do not, and I live in a big city. I drive two older cars (2001 and 2003) and also do not leave any valuables in the car ever.

Let's consider the economics of my decision. Consider the following break-in scenarios:

1. 2001 Dodge Intrepid, car is broken into by a crack head.
Unlocked: Crackhead opens the door, checks glovebox and car. No valuables taken, no damage done.
Locked: Crackhead breaks window to enter car. No valuables taken, broken window replacement needed ($300).

2. 2003 Jeep wrangler with soft top, car is broken into by a crack head.
Unlocked: Crackhead opens the door, checks glovebox and car. No valuables taken, no damage done.
Locked (is it even *possible* to secure a vehicle with a rag top?): Crackhead breaks window or cuts convertible rag top with a knife. No valuables taken, broken window and / or replaced ragtop needed ($500+).

There are forces in this world that want you living in fear of life and your fellow man because they profit from it. It doesn't have to be that way.


I agree. The best thing to do is to find your fellow man and kill him before he kills you.

2012-06-20 05:58:55 PM  
iirc, "y'all" is a side effect of Spanish having a single-word second-person plural and our old second-person singular (Ye) having fallen out of use. So we cobbled together our own phrase/word to make it easier on the translators.

It's in the dictionary, by the way, though it's listed as a colloquialism by most versions.

It's also a side effect of smooshing phonemes together, it happens in most languages. In Spanish "Mi hijo" becomes "mijo" and "De" contracts with just about any word starting with a vowel. French does this a lot too.

It doesn't take much for many regional pronunciations (like the classic "Southern Drawl") to contract "You all" into "y'all". I've also heard the "word" d'jeet - as in "Did you eat?".

In this sentence "you" is plural as in "you all". There are two parents involved, therefore it cannot be a singular noun. While Subby could have simply not used the contraction, they did. The sentence looks clumsy, but it is indeed correct.
