“Is it too much to ask that officers ask themselves, "How would I handle this situation if I did *not* have a gun," before using deadly force? There obviously are situations that require split-second judgements, but a loose dog isn't one of those situations.”

“Hmm, in terms of this series "representing" gay males, skin color diversity seems to be a fairly minor issue (and might, ultimately, be a plus.) BUT, until I have watched the full series, I'll wait before I pass personal judgement.”

“So, Romney reportedly said "no" eleven times when asked about running again. I need to look up the original source and the original question to figure out if this might just be the first time he has ever stated a position he can't honestly reverse.”

“None of this, sadly, would be surprising if true. But as the original "bridgegate" scandal details have yet to be fleshed out, this "me too" allegation by Zimmer feels potentially opportunistic. Yes, her allegations could very well be true, but her timing is odd... why now, more importantly: why not before now?”

“Oh you're right, I forgot about the added verification step requiring a texted id number!

It's a clever short-term move by FB, though. They need to keep their membership numbers growing to keep the enterprise looking successful. At some point, though, advertisers and investors will figure out that most of the new members are not actually using FB.”

BradHart on Jan 17, 2014 at 07:01:36

“Major players advertising on facebook contract social media demographers to do local market investigation studies for them as we have the time and resources to look at what people are actually doing.”

“Seems unclear how they are getting this data. From advertisers? Hmm.

Anyway, Facebook's sign-ups only show growth because fairly recently sites like this suddenly require a FB account to post comments. It doesn't mean new folks are actually using those new FB accounts.”

BradHart on Jan 17, 2014 at 06:53:58

“The numbers they are getting are based on their registered user data. It is hard to tell how much of a fudge factor they believe their numbers require, but they most certainly do need on. I used to be part of a group that was monitoring cyberbullies within my district by posing as students. We all used birthdays that made us out to be teens only to be told by the people who we friended and were monitoring to use fake birthdays so we could see everything. At present I know many junior high kids who go to school with my son whose accounts all list them in their fifties.”

“Facebook pays a good money to such websites like HP to increase subscriber.”

jacmed on Jan 16, 2014 at 19:06:36

“So true. I had a very old FB account but never posted on it; I opened it because some of the surveys I did required me to sign in using FB; that is no longer the case, however. Anyway, when Huffington Post required me to verify a Facebook account to be able to comment, I verified it and still never post to it. The really sad thing is that eight of my senior citizen friends opened an account just so they could comment but, alas, it did them no good - they don't have cell phones and the only way FB would verify is by sending a text to a cell phone (a series of numbers) which you had to enter on Huff but they still have a FB account - which they never ever use.”

“Yes. To make myself clear, I had no intention of demeaning hospice nor end-of-life care. I have personally known the value of hospice care, with equal parts sadness and respect. My point was solely that given *this* politically volatile situation, it was an odd and unexpected add-in from him.”

“Is not the real question: did Christie somehow appoint "bad" people, or did Christie somehow not know that they might be too loyal?”

lolopuffin on Jan 11, 2014 at 03:39:38

“Loyal? You call a stunt like this LOYALTY? It's a complete lack of knowing right from wrong. It's stupidity. It's arrogance. Spare us from this kind of "loyalty". Christie either didn't know these people or he didn't care. I can't even express my disappointment in him!”

“I thought the same thing.

I hope no terminally ill patients were delayed in being transported from hospitals to long term end-of-life care where they were not to receive treatment except for pain management and comfort and were expected to die within weeks. We would hate to see them arrive late for that.”

“Wow... an article about the GOP that included in the first paragraph the word "thantalogical"... um, may I humbly say, this was not an article originally written for HuffPo.”

Mohican379 on Dec 31, 2013 at 08:03:22

“You can humbly say anything you like, but you'll probably feel even humbler after reading the by-line and realizing you're wrong. Also, the word is "thanatological".”

“The word is thanatological, from the Greek Thanatos, (death) and logos (words). If you're going to pretend to have a superior lexicon at least spell the word correctly.”

“Yup, I agree. There has been a short-sightedness in hiring for a long time. And currently more than ever. The original thinking about "older" potential hires was that they wouldn't have the life-term worthiness of advancing or staying with the company. But, today, the reality is that very few (even 22 year olds) stay with any job more than a few years. Older applicants are actually more likely to stay long-term.”

“I agree. The best financial advice I wish I had learned early on is to avoid debt. Sometimes it's necessary (student loans, mortgages... maybe, probably,) but I truly believe avoiding debt and avoiding "financing" is the best route. Financing and debt-borrowing only works for those who already have a large net worth. Sad, but true.”

Marionette on Dec 28, 2013 at 17:52:41

“The assumptions we're making about this story is a bit much. Maybe he had to use the credit cards to pay the mortgage to buy time until a new job. While I'd be the first to admit i have mixed emotions about having this guy speak for me, it doesn't take away the fact that we're all still hurting. why pour gas on a fire, by not extending benefits?”

“Scientists? Not mentioned anywhere in this story. This article was about debunking financial "scholars" (whatever *that* means.) Anything involving the term "finance" is a fraud. Don't believe me? Look up "bitcoin." Better yet, research the basis of your own credit score. Your credit worthiness is complicated, but falls back to the value of your personal signature. Truly. (But, oddly, you can't sell it on Ebay. Yet. Unless you're dead.)”

“"Unemployment is not just a blue collar problem."

Hmm. Well, maybe, but given the first two paragraphs of this story, the real issue is that those with high paying jobs don't fully appreciate the fact that they have high paying jobs. Pay your monthly student loan installment and budget with the expectation that you might lose income. Period.”

lattecity on Dec 28, 2013 at 16:50:55

“Good point. It is also high time for people to stop relying on credit so much. Those who are working need to get out of debt and stay out of debt.”

“I love drag king shows, usually much more than any drag queen performance. Perhaps because the "kings" are not yet fully media immersed, so the shows are still edgy and the performers still a bit anxious and therefore feel (to the audience, or ok, just me maybe,) to be more daring and raw.”
