“Gotta agree with Margo and fan you too. Roseanne's show was far more realistic and funnier than lots of other shows with standard comedy-families...you know the ones with a Mom and Dad with fabulous jobs who apparently never actually work because they always seem to be home with their adorable, smarter-than-the-adults-around-them kids.”

“Sigh.

This is the group of people who would have a real problem if their son or daughter were to fall in love and want a relationship with a same-sex partner...yet they would celebrate if their child married a corporation, apparently

Seriously messed up.”

“Senator McCain, If you ever wonder what a maverick REALLY looks like, just look at Senator Hatfield. How many times did our Oregon Senator stray away from his Republican herd to vote for what was right instead of what his Party wanted?

How sad that his final years were witness to the destruction and perversion of the politics and party he loved and spent his life working so hard at.

Oregon and our country truly benefited from this man. His career as a politician is one example of why I (a yellow dog Democrat) will never vote for term limits. There used to be a lot more like him...”

“Hatfield was what McCain could have been, had McCain not felt entitled to the presidency.”

“This Progressive-Democratic Oregonian is sad to hear this news. I wish he could have lived to see the Republican party he loved come back to its senses and leave their toxic partisanship behind. It's too bad his final years were witness to the decline of moderate/Progressive Republicanism, a cause he championed and fostered here in Oregon.

Truly, a senator of the highest caliber.”

“Agreed! Last time I checked, you also needed a doctor's Rx to get contraceptive pills, devices (iud), etc.

Unless you want to depend upon the ones at the drug store. The people who rely solely on those alone are called "parents."

Until a woman can do all of these things by herself without involving doctors and clinics and hospitals, then he needs to shut up.”

Kim Simac, Tea Party Candidate For Jim Holperin Recall, Compares Public Schools To Nazi Regime

Commented Aug 1, 2011 at 16:54:01 in Education

“Sigh. Indeed.

Most of us non-cave-dwellers remember our history and the fact that the Nazi party had a very effective propaganda arm. They used language like Picasso used oils, to paint whatever picture they wanted people to see. Like Picasso's works, the actual, end result was just as distorted from reality. Their (the Nazis') first act of propaganda was selecting a name.”

“Already a fan, so I can't fan you again.

I had the same thought! Also, she needs to go back to school and pay attention when the middle school teacher talks about the subjunctive case; "...but if I was a young parent today..."

I swear, it makes one cringe to read. My Miss Gray would have smacked her desk with a ruler!”

deepintheheartoftejas on Aug 1, 2011 at 18:42:00

“Eh, she's in the company of a lot of other writers of the English language, including some of the most distinguished in English literature. Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage has this to say about the subjunctive:

"To repeat, we do not really know why, three or four hundred years ago, 'was' began to compete with the older subjunctive 'were' in wishes and hypothetical and other unreal statements. It simply happened. The success that the indicative form has had since then has probably been abetted by the near invisibility of the subjunctive. We do not have any distinctive subjunctive forms in modern English; every one we can identify as a subjunctive is simply an indicative form doing double duty."

Refer to MW to see examples by Lewis Carol, Thackeray, Henry Adams, Noam Chomsky, and others. If interested, refer The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language for why the term "subjunctive" doesn't really make much sense for the usage.

Either form sounds correct to me. It causes no confusion, and the usage is widespread in both formal and informal contexts.”

“If you ever get a chance to see Broken Social Scene, don't miss it. Maybe Millan will be with them, maybe not. They're this incredible group of musicians who come and go from the band on a "no harm, no foul" basis whenever they feel like it. Their concerts range between "interesting" and "Oh, My Freakin' God That Was Amazing".”

“Sigh. Steinbeck is often forgotten. Even in his own time he was overlooked.”

BlueRoseofTexas on Jul 22, 2011 at 10:56:34

“So true. I love Steinbeck. Also a great writer who is pretty much forgotten now: Sinclair Lewis. Main Street and Babbit are great. Also Dreiser. No one talks about him anymore and I doubt that he is on many college syllabuses today.

I looked at this list and decided I was a hybrid because I love Fitzgerald and Vonnegut. Does that make me a split personality type? Also, what about Jane Austen and the Brontes? Seems there's a lot of love for certain female writers as well (I ama big fan of all three).”

“I am a liberal, yellow-dog-Democrat Progressive. I cannot even begin to describe the dangers I see in allowing the Government to determine what foods are OK and which ones are "child abusive." Our government is deep in the pockets of corporate agribusiness. We would be at the mercy of the same people who allowed the banking foxes to fix the fiscal henhouse. Or the health insurance foxes to fix the medical henhouse.

How's that (corporate sponsored government) working out for the ordinary folks? You want them to start on this "problem" now?”

“Where does this stop? Is there an end? Will we remove smokers' kids because second-hand smoke is dangerous? Believe me...I grew up in a smoking family and I was ALWAYS sick. Would I have been better off in a foster home? My parents were also recovering alcoholics. Plus, we always had Kool-aid, twinkies and chips in the house.

I probably would have been better off in an orphanage. **

I get what Dr. Katz is talking about, but his Rx is extreme and would have countless consequences, far worse than being fat.

** I am almost 50. I have never smoked anything. I rarely drink. No twinkies in my house.”
