“Since I started reading in elementary school, I don't think I've never NOT had a book going. I'm 55!
Finish one and have the next one ready to go.
Except for the back of a baby's neck and puppy breath, the smell of books is my favorite scent in the world! ( okay, just thinking of all sorts of things that makes that statement not true, but I do love the smell and hope digital never replaces them!)”

“I started reading at 3 according to my great-grandmother. She said I began to read her newspaper out loud and asked her what a word was. I haven't left home without a book in my bag since then. I feel utterly naked without one.”
“This kind of network: "Besides the upcoming Palin series, Sportsman airs a series with conservative activist and rock musician Ted Nugent. Sportsman also airs a TV version of the National Rifle Association-sponsored radio show, "NRA News, Cam & Co.," each weekday and "NRA Guns & Gold,"”
“The stink of this is so bad it is seeping through my computer screen.
I've always been a die hard supporter of Obama, but this I don't understand. He owes us an explanation.”

“As I see it, the old way of insurance coverage, or lack of, was a scam, a sin, and a crime. Just because the insurance industry can make or break a politician does not mean they have the right to decide who lives and who dies.
We need an alternative and we need BOTH parties and ALL Americans working together to find a solution. Be it "Obamacare" or something else.
This should be a common goal of us all. Stop the petty hate and step up and solve this problem!”

“Stop using the word hate, and start calling it a full blown conversation on the details of what is in a bill first and maybe our country has a chance.”
“cnadita, I can explain it easily: Republicans do not get sick, have pre-existing conditions, ever loose their job and if they were ever to hit their annual limits or lifetime limits they have the capacity to heal themselves at that point.
Because they themselves have theirs, they don't care about the other guy.”
“This healthcare program is HUGE! The rollout and implementation is HUGE. Presidents have been trying to do this for 60 years.
Normally any large program has many legislative "fixes" during the course of its rollout. Meetings are held at regular intervals to tweak and adjust. This is the first time ever that both parties have not come together to launch the program, educate their constituents, and help with legislative fixes. Yet this is possibly the largest program ever unrolled.
Not only is one of the parties not helping, but is fighting with all their might, and funding, to cause its failure.
All of this is unprecedented, but do expect many adjustments and changes and tweaking for years to come.”

“Obama burned up all his political capital on the aca. very gutsy move and shows his leadership qualities. like you said no prez in past 60 years had the will to do it. history will remember that.”

“Three years to get it up and running and all we have is excuses. Three years and almost nothing works. Instead of fixing it they just blatantly lied to everyone about everything. Everyone at the White House should resign.”

“Shilly, I just can't remember. Maybe cnn did a special on climate change? If I can remember and find it I will write back to you. Meanwhile I put "making pumps that will pull cold water from bottom of ocean and decrease energy of hurricane" into a search and a good bit came up. Start with that while I try to remember.”
“Seas are rising 60% faster than was predicted, but because of how the trade winds push water, the Pacific is getting the worst of it first. Some islands are already under water--people, who had lived their for generations, have had to evacuate. permanently.
The rest of the world is begging us to work with them in getting carbon decreased.”

“Instead of sending financial aid, why doesn't the Fed send FEMA instead? They did a fine job last time in Louisiana. Personally I think FEMA should have been called in to help rescue the healthcare website but I could be completely wrong as I usually am.”

“The rest of the world is begging us to pay them for our co2 output, not decrease it.
And since China (the #1 co2 producer) won't pay them, they come to Uncle Sucker.”

“It won't help while India and China et al continue to industrialise. We need technology to help us out here, and we have politically unsavoury things like antiquated patents systems holding that back.”

“There wasn't any crimes in Iraq. President Bush was well within his authority and rights as president whether you agreed with him or not. He went after our enemies and showed us proof he got Saddam Hussein. Besides, most of the democrats were in favor of the war. President Bush did nothing wrong, so let's talk about the here and now.
Obama covered up a terrorist attack then lied about it, that's grounds for impeachment.”
