“Do people think they'll be magically immune to the addictive nature of heroin? If you start, you must know where the road leads. I would be shocked to find that any one of these women hadn't witnessed addiction before.”

“Sorry but, I think they do. Speaking from personal experience.
I chose to be an addict, then I chose not to be.
I've known, and currently know, addicts. It's always the addicts choice to stop.
I'm not saying it's easy but, it's up to the addict themselves.”

“What for, they had every right to fire her. Freedom of speech has it limits. Most employees believe they have absolute freedom of speech at work. They don't. The First Amendment to the U. S. Constitution says, "Government shall make no law abridging freedom of speech .
The First Amendment does not apply to employees in the private sector. Employees do not even have the right to discuss non-work related issues at all. Most employers allow it, but it's important to realize that it is a privilege that the employer can revoke at any time. After all, the purpose of the workers is to work.”
“And how old are your kids now Mrs. Romney/ Right now the most taxing decision you have is picking out the color of paint for your car elevator.
Being a mother is the hardest thing to be, being a mother who has to deal with financial decisions, balancing a checkbook going to a work and deciding on whether to buy your childs medicine or keep the lights on is much harder. Something you haven't had to ever even think about.”
“Clinton bashing? I haven't read one word of clinton bashing on that issue by the news media about his passport files being breached three times.”

“I'm talking about here on Huffpo, the Obama supporters by the hundreds have said the whole passport thing was done by Hilliary, the conspiracy theories here against her are laugh out loud funny, it shows how desperate you all are.”

“If you use the Kaiser tool a single 55 year old with an income of 17,000 would receive a subsidy towards the premiums but really says nothing about the deductibles which are quite high on these plans imo.
Bronze plan deductibles in RI are from $5,000 to $5,800 with a maximum out of pocket of $6,350 or double that for family plans.
IMO the following paragraph is a bit of double talk since they mention deductibles separately rather than include it in the 'actuarial value'.
"You are guaranteed access to a Silver plan with an actuarial value of 94%. This means that for all enrollees in a typical population, the plan will pay for 94% of expenses in total for covered benefits, with enrollees responsible for the rest. If you choose to enroll in a Bronze plan, the actuarial value will be 60%, meaning your out-of-pocket costs when you use services will likely be higher. Regardless of which level of coverage you choose, deductibles and copayments will vary from plan to plan, and out-of-pocket costs will depend on your health care expenses. Preventive services will be covered with no cost sharing required."”

“He can hold whatever views he wants: however once again this is a private company (ESPN) and they are not legally or constitutionally obligated to allow him to voice his opinion on their privately owned station.
Or would you like the Government to move in and tell them what they should do on their privately owned station.
You should learn about Article 19 and Freedom of speech”
“I read about this in the local newspaper. Some of the bloggers posting in the Detroit Freepress are absoutely disgusting grasping at straws to blame the victim and her family. Some people actually blaming them because she was sleeping on the couch and should have been in her bed. Blaming them accusing them of harboring felons and others accusations.
The saddest part of this is that the person they were looking for was in the another flat. And this nonsense that the gun just went off is laughable. Guns just don't go off accidently. Police are to be in control of their weapons at all times and this officer obviously wasn't.
This little girl died because of the negligence of the officer, period.”

“I think Obama could insert that information into a response very smoothly without sounding petty or tit for tat, as he would if he tried to mention Keating 5 or G. Gordon Liddy. I think that would effectively deflate this line of attack as irrelevant and absurd.”
rukiddingmerightnow on Oct 14, 2008 at 12:03:58
“And he might mention of the subject of character and judgment that the VP nominee that McCain selected was just found to have abused her power as governor and is facing a number of other investigations as well. This puts both McCain and his running mate's judgment and character in serious question. McCain might want to stay away from character and judgment altogether...”
