“The facts are, deserter or not, he was an American soldier. Period. Whatever "punishment" you may still want for him, he was a POW for over five YEARS in a country that does NOT treat prisoners even as well as Gitmo. What separates America from many other countries is that we fight for our people.”
“I was named after my grandfather, but we were very close so when I had my first son I passed the name back down to him, so he's named after me AND my grandfather. My best friend, though, has the same name as her Mom.”
“It is silly to use "epic". I don't see getting offended, but it's ridiculous when everyone KNOWS that hairstyle has been around for practically ever. Perhaps if they said it looked epic ON her, I don't know. But it seems a muted version of the style at best, and it DOES look cute on her. I think magazines just over-praise the Kardashians out of habit?”
“Can't see ow she didn't. I appreciate that this is very much a real condition, but how do you get a count of the babies? there is a mental component to this beyond the physical symptoms of pregnancy - and I mean beyond pseudocyesis.”
“So ridiculous! Maybe the girl's just a tomboy! And if she is, that's her business, NOT the school's. She's not hurting anyone, being improper, trying to insist on using the boys' restroom, she just doesn't want to look prissy. Maybe later she'll change her mind, maybe she won't, that's just her own personality and she has a right to it.”

“I have always had short hair, am not girly and surprise I'm not a lesbian. And it wouldn't matter either way. She's an eight year old girl, for Pete's sake. Let her be.”
“Ugh. So stupid... why do they keep protesting commercials showing families that EXIST? Like they made a deal out of the interracial cheerios commercial-- those families exist and are NOT a rarity anymore. Now making a deal because of the two dads commercial-- those families exist, too! It's narcissistic to think that only one section of the world deserves commercials that put them in their bracket...”
“That's not half empty. You can't just up and quit your job in this economy over every little thing, but to say that being penalized or rewarded still constitutes "voluntary" spits on the very definition.”

“You can remain clueless and call it whatever you want to. She's going to lose the case.”
“Rewarded for participation, but penalized for refusal, it said so. It is worse for something to be pretend voluntary like that than actually mandatory.”

“You're just viewing the glass as half empty.
Do you go to the grocery store, and complain to the cashier that you're not getting the coupon price of the items, even though you didn't bring any coupons. They're penalizing you, according to your logic.
Even before this choice, you have the choices of not doing their insurance at all, and not working there.”
