Monica Lewinsky Breaks Her Silence On Her Affair With Bill Clinton

“The irony is that the 'friend', Linda Tripp, was publicly humiliated as well. Nobody likes a rat. As for Ms. Lewinsky, her name has become synonymous with jokes, prurience and immorality. This is a real, live person who made an enormous mistake sixteen years ago and is still paying for it. Her life isn't exactly ruined but any endeavor she undertakes will be subject to scrutiny and sniggering. I don't blame her for wanting her day in court via this essay.”

“While I sympathize with those who anxiously awaited packages, I'm sure UPS tried their best. Don't forget, we've had some very bad weather around the country. Schools in my town were closed for four days. Things get backed up. If you paid extra for December 24th delivery, contact the companies and see about a refund. Next year, try and shop a bit earlier. Merry Christmas!”

“Weather is no excuse. I drove a tractor trailer across an iced up delaware memorial bridge to make sure I did not have a service failure last week. UPS dropped the ball and there is no excuse. Don't try to deflect the blame onto customers who paid good money for broken promises.”

“If the US had sat out the war in Europe, the Allies would have won anyway. It would have been harder for them had the UK succumbed but Russia's participation tipped the balance of the war. The US made all the difference in Asia and can take credit where it's due. This attitude that the USA 'saved' Europe is erroneous.”

“How are republicans more generous than democrats? Can you back up that statement? If you say it's because the 'red' states contribute to charities more than 'blue' states, you could be correct. 'Blue' states typically pay more in taxes (and have better infrastructure, more services and superior schools). They have less money to donate to charities. 'Blue' states pay more to the Fed than 'red' states, who won't tax themselves. Therefore, they get back much more than they send to the Fed. I would say the biggest charity of all is 'blue' states contributing their largesse to 'red' states with higher divorce, obesity and out-of-wedlock pregnancy levels, poor achievement in education and abysmal infrastructure. What DO those 'red' states spend their government-allowance money on anyway?”

Francois Bergeron on Oct 28, 2013 at 06:40:23

“"Americans" are very friendly and generous. No doubt there.
But also fat, stupid and unwilling to change and improve.”

“This is what happens when people seethe with anger rather than addressing a problem they are having with a neighbor right away. Would it have killed the writer to stop by and mention that she hears the child 'whaling' (I'm sure she meant 'wailing') and hopes that he is okay? She could have talked about the situation in a polite way rather than writing a hurtful letter.
It does make one wonder if this child is left alone outside, unsupervised, for long periods of time. That is more important than reacting to the unpleasant author of this diatribe. I bet the whole neighborhood knows who it is, too.”

“When a company does not provide for a living wage and medical coverage, the taxpayer picks up the slack. Food stamps for the working poor, state-supported medical care for their children, all comes out of the taxpayers' pockets. It's a sweet deal for employers.”

“My daughter's spouse has what is considered a 'good job' here in Southern Oregon. He is highly skilled and has a general contractor's license. He is told to be grateful that he is paid $15 per hour, with no benefits. He makes too much money to qualify for food stamps although he is the sole support for my daughter and their two young children. He was offered a job at $17 per hour with a new company but his old boss told the new company that he would not give them any work (these businesses are all interdependent) if my son-in-law was hired, so that job fell through. His old company refused to rehire him. Fortunately, he found a new job with their fiercest competitor and is very glad but the pay is, again, $15 per hour. Is that supposed to be a living wage?”

Will Kraft on Jun 10, 2013 at 15:47:02

“What that company did to your son-in-law by costing him that job at a different company is probably illegal.”

“the GOP does not get its cognitive dissonance on this - wages have stagnated for DECADES while costs have gone up. Teabaggers yearn for the 50s, but there is NO WAY now for one wage earner to support a family of four. They want women barefoot and preggers in the freaking kitchen, but don't want to pay the man anything to support a family. And women, HA like we have a shot in hell of equal pay EVER - this has been talked about since I was old enough to pay attention to the news!”

“Since when do our representatives do what their constituents want? They have proven time and again that the electorate does not matter. If we did, there would be stricter gun controls, higher taxes on the wealthiest, universal health care and no sequester. Our government is all about itself and is the equivalent of modern-day robber barons.”

“Ann isn't necessarily the main reason to watch TODAY (if you can stand all the commercials) but she is part of the tapestry of the program. Why pick on Ann, who has been a fixture for fifteen years? She may not have Katie's perkiness, or whatever it was about her that was so compelling, but she definitely pulled her weight. What a shame NBC is blaming their own failures on one person. Good luck, Ann. They are too good for you.”

“He's trying to get ahead in the USA by trying to live comfortably in places like California and Colorado, two places that have eluded me as anything but a wild dream as I aspire to even visit them, let alone live in either state permanently.

His choices of location are a huge part of his problem. I'm willing to bet that they *are* his problem. He takes for granted things that I *aspire* to someday have, and I have a relatively high, relatively stable income and a profession that is in demand.”
