Cumberland County, Kentucky, Shooting May Show Gun Culture 'Natural Consequence'

Cumberland County, Kentucky, Shooting May Show Gun Culture 'Natural Consequence'

“The idea that it's ok to give a loaded gun to a 4-year-old is INSANE! If these parents had given him a 6-pack, they would be locked up and their kids taken away forever. But give him a gun and he shoots someone and people just go, "Oh well, accidents happen."”

Is Coffee Bad Or Good For Your Health? Two Experts Debate

Is Coffee Bad Or Good For Your Health? Two Experts Debate

Commented Sep 19, 2012 at 14:04:29 in Healthy Living

“Given that the coffee industry is a multi-billion dollar a year business here in the US, I have to question the objectivity of all these reports glorifying coffee as a health food.

We finally wised up to how the cigarrette industry used its massive financial influence to manipulate scientific reports to make it appear smoking was not bad for you. Granted coffee is not as bad for you as smoking, but how long before we realize the coffee industry is putting out advertisements about the health benefits of coffee disguised as "science?"”

Scott Conary on Sep 19, 2012 at 16:05:29

“Actually its the reverse....for years other industries have funded research to discredit coffee ( especially those wanting market share for the morning ritual), and the majority of research was done on caffeine, not coffee, thus highlighting the effects of this one aspect only.
The coffee industry is worldwide, but VERY fragmented and not really capable of funding truly deceitful research ( or you would likely never have heard about the effects of caffeine...sort of how you never really knew how bad nicotine was for the longest time) - but don't take my word for it, look at the actual, peer-reviewed literature that exists from the last 5-10 years and you will see credible science that never existed before. No reason to put it in quotes, this is real research.”

“It is milder than most, but it still is a drug.

We all know it is addictive and it can and does cause health problems including: insomnia, diarhhea, heart palpitations, anxiety, spikes in blood pressure, etc etc. which you would know if you bothered to read the "against" side of it.”

jsgaetano on Sep 19, 2012 at 16:00:14

“LOL... "addictive"? Name somebody who had to go to Betty Ford to kick a "coffee addiction".

You're attempting to take a medical term and apply it to something you can't even prove.

The tragic flaw in your argument is that I have read the "against" side... and it's just rhetoric with no scientific proof supporting it's claims (which I've already said). You can't show anyone meeting the medical definition of an "addiction" to coffee, either psychological or physiological.

If a person has problems with ingesting coffee, my non-doctor advice is they should stop doing it. It's not like there is some kind of uncontrollable urge over which they have no control over which compells them to ingest it.”

“People who call coffee a health food remind me of the people who used to say ciggarettes were good for you back in the 50's.

By all means keep your Starbucks and your morning cup of java, but realize it is a drug and should be treated as such.”

“That's asinine. Nobody goes to a clinic to detox from coffee. Nobody dies from coffee overdose.”

“There's caffiene in a lot of stuff. Soda pop, some brands of aspirin, allergy medicine, and of course, coffee. I've been drinking it since I was 16. Whoop-de-do. Enjoyed by millions worldwide daily, beans grown in multiple countries. You could do worse in your investment portfolio...”

“I had the exact same experience when I quit drinking caffeine.

It really is amazing how much more energy I have and how much better I sleep. I used to drink it because I thought it reved me up, which it did temporarily, but the overall effect on my body was a net loss of energy.

Maybe I am more sensitive than most to it, but it definitely caused me more problems than any of the marginal-at-best beneficial effects were worth.”

“Her mom is so controlling and enmeshed in her life, she was never able to develop a separate personality. Seems like she is permanently stuck in that pre-teen rebellious phase while still trying to figure out just who she is.

I think she calls him Michael just because her mom always did since her mom has serious boundary issues which have permanently messed this girl up. She was always the one pulling the strings. She pushed her into breaking up with the baby's daddy, keeping the child, etc. etc. All Farrah ever wanted was to break free from momster but having the baby without a father in the picture made that almost impossible.”

Is It Cheating? Tweeters Offer Their Exceptions To Cheating

Commented Aug 30, 2012 at 11:52:08 in Divorce

“It's all "cheating" but I can see some instances where it would be somewhat acceptable.

For instance, I know a young woman whose husband was turned into a quadripalegic the week after they got married. He feels nothing below the neck, but she has stuck by him and continues to do so despite all the added responsibility of caring for him.

I dont know if she ever has, but if your spouse was physically incapacitated forever for whatever reason such that sex was impossible or close to it, I dont think anyone would hold it against her if she slept with another man.

Other than that though, there really is no excuse.”

“Texas A&M has guns on campus , the cops had guns, guess it didn't deter this nut. Stop selling auto's, start requiring psychological test or at least make it a crime to deny you had psych problems before purchasing, if you admit get checked. stop internet sales, stop selling teflons, high capacity magazines, stop gun show purchases. Like a gun at a gun show, give your info get checked out , pay for shipping. require training before purchase [every once in a while an instructor can spot a nut]. No felons , or Abusers allowed to possess, hold sellers liable for negligent sales, Show need for a carry permit.
what is wrong with any of this, First Amendment grants a right to religion but you still need a permit to build a church, can't sacrifice animals , smoke ganja or peyote, marry three wives, beat kids, hold slaves, all of which is part by some religions Will we still have shootings, of course but maybe not one mass shooting a week. Tell me where these are wrong.”
