Working Poor: Almost Half Of U.S. Households Live One Crisis From The Bread Line

Commented Jan 31, 2012 at 15:51:30 in Business

“Yes all my savings were in portfolios with companies that were supposed to be beyond reproach. When they stole mine and a lot of other peoples' retirements, I was left with about $2000 in my savings account to retire on. If you are so naive to believe that you can't possibly lose everything then I feel sorry for you and I understand why you call yourself lowbeam.”

Where Is the Fourth Estate When You Need Them?

Commented Feb 4, 2012 at 17:44:21 in Media

“The problem is that journalism, true journalism, is disappearing. What we have now is cable tv infotainment. The true journalists don't get interviews with or moderate debates with the politicians who will be running our country, they are in AFghanistan and around the world trying to report news to a generation that has learned that what Lady Gaga is doing this week is more important than what is happening in Rwanda. They learned this from cable TV channels that are mislabeled as news.”

“I love these 3 AMC shows in this order, 1. Waking Dead 2. Mad Men 3. Breaking Bad.

I have to say though that both Mad Men and especially Breaking Bad seem like they are sort of at their endpoint as viable shows. There's nothing worse than a show that goes way past its time like "Desperate Housewives."”

Joseph Scott on Aug 13, 2011 at 13:02:13

“3 seasons is short enough to still be viable...it takes writers, with a capital W, then production values, and all that assumes you already have the actors people are wanting to see.

It's the writing.
I saw a Desperate Housewives show the season after they "made it."
They must have spent $1.25 on the script.
It was worse than Mrs. Johnson's open-to-everyone script writing course at the Learning Annex.”

Delta Partnership May Cause Travel Headaches For Non-Muslims

Commented Jun 24, 2011 at 13:19:15 in Religion

“Delta has to comply with any law from any country in which it lands. It's a capitalist enterprise and part of capitalism is sacrificing your personal views for money so since we only care about corporatists these days, why is everybody so upset?”

busymissnanci on Jun 24, 2011 at 13:45:08

“Because SOMEWHERE, we have to stand up for what is morally right. The dollar be dam*ed! There comes a time when we must stand and conquer, and when we must be united against evil in whatever form it takes. Over the centuries, the Jewish people have probably been oppressed more than any other nation.

If we, in our enlightened time, cannot find a way to stop this discriminatory behavior, then NONE of us deserve to be free.”

“Facebook isn't going to go anywhere. The difference between now and 2008 when MySpace started disappearing is that there was an alternative to MySpace. Now that MySpace is dead, there is no alternative to FB. People who are on there have a lot more time and networking invested there. I too have known people who have dropped off of Facebook for a variety of reasons stated (almost all of them really did so because of some petty spat with a real world friend), but every single one of them has come back. So yeah, Facebook is here for good. Now that it's not just for 16 year olds, and people my age (52) are connecting with friends from the 70s, it's not going anywhere.”

PeaceG on Jun 22, 2011 at 18:09:28

“People will ditch it because it's too intrusive. I'm sick to death of every website asking me if I want to hook whatever I do there up with Facebook. People who were terrified of 'big brother' watching gleefully let Facebook intrude into every aspect of their online lives. I keep a FB profile with my email addy on it so people have another way to find me. There's no information on it other than my name and cities.”

“" Why did MySpace fall so far behind Facebook? No one knows for certain. It may be that Facebook had more attractive features for people who wanted to share their identities online. It may have been that it appealed to a younger audience which tends to spend more time online."

I can tell you exactly why. MySpace was clearly aimed at a younger audience, there was lots of bling on the home page. Facebook appeals to a much larger audience. Have you checked how many older people are joining Facebook these days? MySpace had animated bling. Facebook had an easy to use interface that appeals to a much wider audience. Plus, even if it's not true, Facebook (back in 2008) appeared to be safer and more private than MySpace. Appearances are everything. Facebook appeared to be safer.”

“I respectfully disagree. I am disappointed at best with Obama's term, in some moments, I am downright disgusted. But I don't believe Alan Grayson can get elected (he lost his local election) and though I admire Governor Dean, I don't believe he will make a good candidate either.

The sad truth is that our country has moved so far to the right that only a moderate or slightly conservative Democrat has a chance of winning the presidency.

While I am disgusted and disappointed in Obama and won't work for his election the way I did in 2008, I will certainly be voting for him again. I'm disgusted, but not so disgusted that I'm going to vote Republican or for a Democrat who can't possibly win. I love Grayson but let's face it, he's not presidential material, he's too outspoken and too honest.”

VioletDatura on Jan 10, 2011 at 20:34:33

“Why don't you think Gov Dean will make a good candidate? Just curious.

I think it's moved to the right because we've allowed it to. This isn't an immutable law, it was done deliberately by the Conservative Noise Machine, and allowed through deliberate cowardice on the part of the Democrats. It's didn't have to happen, and we don't have to be compliant or complicit in this.”

desidid on Jan 10, 2011 at 20:25:43

“Totally disagree he won in a landslide then ceded on every issue that supposedly meant something to him and more importantly those who voted for him. The country didn't move right, the president and his party had terrible messaging they played defense not offense and they moved right to claim wins. Now anyone who saw it differently, I don't know what you were watching. But I can't count the times before a vote that we were told he was already giving up on legislation.”

“The only people who will buy into this nonsense are the people who are desperate to do so. I have seen radical right websites posting pleas to readers to please find out if the Loughner was a registered Democrat. On Facebook, some radical right winger tried to create a profile page purporting to be Loughners and claiming to be a liberal. These actions by the tea party and the radical right do nothing to harm anyone but themselves.”
