“I am not crying and if that is all you got out of my comment then you don't get it either. I have moved and it is not any better. Besides that I am not you and you are not me so our experiences are not going to be anything close to the same. How nice of you to reply with something snarky and down putting.”
“You have no idea what my skills are you overbearing snob. And you are pointing out the obvious to yourself not the obvious to the majority of people in this country. The Republican party is holding the country hostage and if you think employment is voluntary try living without a job......oh wait, you must have a trust fund. And as fat as this country has become I would say fast food services are pretty important especially if you are a busy family that doesn't have a maid or a cook like you do. The audacity if some people is fascinating. How do you sleep at night, oh wait........you don't have to worry about money at all do you.”

“If you had skills worth paying for, you wouldn't be complaining about your employment situation.
Nobody is being held hostage. Employment is voluntary for bot employer and employee. If you want what someone else has, you need to give them what they want in return. That's how a contract works.
I am gainfully employed. I offer a service that someone values enough to pay me for it. Do you understand how this works yet?
This country has so many fast food restaurants because the people of this country obviously value fast food. We know this because they pay for it. Fast food businesses are so profitable because they require little overhead and easily replaceable unskilled labor.
I do worry about money because I am responsible for my own well being. I don't sleep much because I have to get up early to go to work. I have to worry about money because I am responsible for my own well being.”
“Excuse me but I happen to have a college degree and I am stuck in the group you seem to think you are talking about. You clearly have no clue what is going on in the world today which means you must be one of those that sit up in their Ivory Towers and pass judgement among us lower forms of life. I was permanently laid off of my job and then the governor of my state cut back so far in my field that it is impossible to get a job with my skill sets. The only thing left to do is go back to retail or fast food. You kind of people make me so angry sometimes I can't think straight. Instead of sitting around in your arm chair and pronouncing judgement from on high why don't you spend a little time where the rest of us live and see how the world really is. And I will go one step further than just having unions. I think there should be a Labor party in this country. Then one group would not be able to hold the whole country hostage.”

“Just because you have a college degree doesn't mean you have any skills worth paying for. I'm not passing judgement, just pointing out the obvious. Nobody is holding anyone hostage. Employment is voluntary. Those whose services are in highest demand earn the most. Burger flippers and pizza delivery drivers are not among them.”

“I agree. Someone did version of Hamlet like the DiCaprio Romeo and Juliet, set in modern times and it didn't work at all for me. and I think Luhrmann directed that Romeo and Juliet, didn't he? It was interesting but I have already seen Hamlet messed up once.”

“Michael Almereyda, with Ethan Hawke from 2000. It wasn't exactly "messed" up" and comparable to Luhrmann's R+J. The world could always use another Hamlet.”
“State trumps city and Federal trumps state. The businesses that don't discriminate in regard to sexual orientation are doing it of their own accord. So If someone has a problem with that and decides to raise the issue and it goes to court there is no law that would protect the gay person. So the answer is True. It matters not about clauses and contracts. There is no supportive law behind it.”
“I think they should be called Politispin. come one, come all, see how Politifact checks the facts. If they don't get the answer they like then they give it a good spin and then a slant and a maybe, kinda, sorta. You know who the best fact checker is? Yourself. Don't sit on your butt and let other people tell you what the facts are. Act, Do,Find Out, Commit. Don't sit around griping liberal this and Gop that. I trust Rachel because I double and triple check what media is saying.”
“What we need to do is pay close attention to who is voting and how they are voting and then when it comes to election time turn off our TVs and stop watching biased commercials and use our own brains and what we have learned during their tenure and go vote to rid ourselves of those who are only in office to serve themselves and money. Too many people just sit back and watch and don't pay attention and don't vote. Vote, Vote, Vote people. I say get rid of everyone and start over.”
“I just did tweet the 2 from my state. I also email them before a new bill comes up. It does not good. I haven't yet figured out exactly who they are representing. Definitely not the large population of Eastern Kansas so they must e buddies out in western Kansas. Not as many people but more money. Wish we could get rid of both Moran and Roberts and they can take Governor Brownack with them. Then maybe Kansas could e great again instead of embarrassing and backward and pandering to the very rich.”
“Yeah, I was actually under the impression that this country elected representatives that would support and represent the will of the people. I guess my government teacher back in high school was wrong. Interesting how a small minority group can take the entire country hostage.”
“You would have thought something like this with the gun control debate raging on would have been not only on local news. I watch the news both in the morning and at night and I saw nothing of this until now. This is very sad but one has to assume that the man had a permit for the gun and was a proud gun owner. I would question why he was allowed to bring it into a sporting event but maybe he had a conceal and carry that allows that or he had it in the glove compartment of his car. I am sure no one takes the time to search peoples vehicles as they enter a venue. There are more guns in public places than people would actually believe. Just saying.”

“There is a reason this is NOT making news. I just don't know what it is right now.”
“It took a second to find what was embarrassing with a couple of them. I could see how you might want to be a little more careful in designing a logo. This was a fun little break in my day. thank you.”
“The tax system is broken and unfair. come look at what Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is doing to the state and notice that this is what Republicans everywhere would like to do. We will be ruined by the time he is up for reelection. He is passing a bill where bosses and businesses pay no taxes whatsoever. Everyone who is an employee or worker WILL be paying taxes. I don't pretend to be intelligent enough to understand most of the great tax debate but even with my unknowing eye there is something very, very wrong with this plan. He has also cut education to the point of beyond danger. Something, somewhere has got to change.”

“if bussiness pay no taxes then they can create more jobs. have less hungry people on the street. less giftless X-MAS for kids.
why do you think we have no jobs now? because its cheaper to run a business out of the country. make it cheaper for them to do it here. then they well bring the work back. its not hard to figure out. the man with the money to open factories is going to go about it the cheapest way possible.
“I think that reading the discussion on this post proves that the PSA idea is doing what is was meant to do and that is to get people thinking and talking. Comparing the actually banned items, that seem very silly items to ban with an assault weapon that anyone can buy at a gun show is very thought provoking and one has to wonder why people would be so quick to ban innocuous items and not even consider more stringent rules governing deadly ones.”

“background checks are performed at gun shows for the vast majority of sales. The only sales that do not get background checks are private sales which do not have to take place at a gun show. They can happen through newspaper advertisements or other non-firearm dealer means.
The items shown were banned because somebody thought they were a threat. One promoted alcohol use (Red Riding Hood), one is a choke hazard (the chocolate egg), and one promotes violence against others (dodgeball). You may think they are all innocuous items but parents in the areas those things are banned in do not think the same way.”
“I always find it interesting when a politician is caught saying or doing something that is unethical because they never seem to realize that is what they are doing. They are so quick to publicly sound the trumpet on having been wronged that they don't even stop and consider that what they were doing was not only equally wrong but in this case illegal. McConnell has done nothing more than to catch himself in his own net and now he has to find a way to cut himself out of it. He may escape the ethics violation but he will not escape the memory of the people.”

“I believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion but when it borders along the lines of a cardboard box you should expect a tongue lashing from all critical thinkers.What saddens is this: I am the only one thinking on here today. I am also glad that I do not post frequently as my mind would sizzle if I read many comments like the one you posted.That being said,I broke my own rule when giving you a second thought but you asked so nicely.
“I am not meaning to be rude but I live in the real world and my research time is spent on trying to help with a cure for MS, finding clothes for those who have done, making sure hungry people can eat and teaching children with emotional problems how to live in the world. I have little time for made up issues when there are so many real ones that need attention.”

“You refuse to do any research and yet think you can just dismiss something as impossible? I'm sorry that's hypocritical at best.
It's true everything in the sky is a UFO till you identify it, but there's a number of pictures of things that do not conform to anything we know. Course there's also a huge number of fakes too.”

“(The biggest giveaway is that it specifically appears to have a spine composed of vertebrae.
That anyone could believe this is the *only* way for a nervous system to develop is so short-sighted as to need bat-sonar to get around.)”
“This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. I may be an aborted fetus or a clay or plastic figure but it is most definitely not an alien from outer space. There is no such thing. Every sighting ever recorded could be chalked up to someone simply not knowing what they are seeing. That is what UFO means. It is unidentified. The majority of cases are easily explainable once more information is forthcoming. Weather balloons, experimental aircraft, model aircraft, anything can be unidentified until it is. I don't believe in ghosts and I don't believe in conspiracy theories either. These are all thought up by people who have way too much time on their hands.”

“I agree, I would love to be there with a camera when they find out they get a ticket straight down after God reads them the riot act for how they behaved. In all seriousness though Fred Phelps was and still is physically and mentally abusive to his family. It wouldn't surprise me if it was also sexual. they grow up in fear of him or going against him. Sad really.”
