“This is pretty much a commentary on what is going on across the country with the arts. Cookie cutter America.”

“Better cookie cutter than garbage "art".”

“About 10 city blocks is where these problems occur. This does not represent the third largest city in America. If you believe all the media has to say then you become part of the problem.”

National Parks Should Close To Oil And Gas Drilling While Shutdown Blocks Public, Petition Says

National Parks Should Close To Oil And Gas Drilling While Shutdown Blocks Public, Petition Says

“The Organic Act of 1916 created the National Park Service "to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." This article was written mainly about the National Parks. There was one mention of the forests. Regardless if it is a forest or a park, I am confused as to why we are allowing it.”

gd3 on Oct 10, 2013 at 13:42:44

“That is because the National Parks and National Forests are separate entities and operate under separate laws.”

Subsoil73 on Oct 10, 2013 at 13:28:02

“Because the government signed a CONTRACT/LEASE with these companies and the companies have easements to access their wells.”

“Why are we drilling and logging our National Parks in the first place? Wasn't the point of creating National Parks to preserve those lands?”

“Women that wear a size 10 range from 130-160lbs depending on height. Even up to a size 16 people are not 300lbs. These are not plus size women. You can't even find 10 and 12's at lane bryant...a plus size store. The average size of American women is 8-12. So to discriminate against the average size is somewhat of a poor marketing plan. If they were discussing size 18+ (which is plus size) then I'd say there is more of an argument. Also, have you ever tried doing yoga in sweatpants? Not an easy task.”

uzeurbrain on Aug 1, 2013 at 13:42:34

“i've never tried doing yoga at ALL and really doubt I will but thats not to say that people don't enjoy it and get something out of it.. great for them. Some of the moves and positions  are pretty hot but the farting and queefing emmmhhh not sure if that would be a turn on but in all fairness tell me the truth do you find way overweight people attractive stuffed into spandex? because it is really a fashion thing buying these name brand items.Some people just like to have things their way without thinking of the bigger picture and cost of that to these companies. sidebar-if this is such a demand and LL doesn't want to do it then I see that as an opportunity for the competitors to cash in. ”

“Since when are size 10 and 12 plus sizes? Also, I work in the clothing industry and most tee shirts and yoga pants range in manufacturing price from $3-$7. For a company that charges $100 for a pair of yoga pants to say that they can't afford to carry larger sizes....well they are just full of it. If they were truly into yoga and the philosophies they would welcome people that are trying to make positive improvements in their lives.”

“Lynette . . . You are absolutely right and I would say that we might remind "uzeurbrain" to do exactly that! :) Have an awesome day!”

uzeurbrain on Aug 1, 2013 at 12:17:08

“Lynette please...how many 300 pound women do you see at your yoga class?...let me guess a big fat "0" and lets be reasonable here making /shipping /stocking sizes of clothes that A: there is no demograph for B:there is no demograph for C: there is no demograph for . I think you see the marketing point dont you?. It's like demanding Adeedaz to provide soccer cleats for 70 year old grandmothers , it's like asking leave eyes to stock bright pink jeans of every size in every store because 1/10000 gay person might want a pair..it would drive up the cost of every other item to pay for the ones that DON'T SELL. I agree with you that people that are trying to make positive improvements in their lives is good...BUT lose 200 pounds first...in sweat pants. Be practical here, those LL yoga pants she or he crams them self into will be a little baggy after a few weeks if they are really commited to losing weight. Now they will be pissed at seeing those $100 dollar "plus size" yoga pants with absolutely no use now..no one to wear them hmmm.”

“Sounds like she needs to surround herself with people that are a little more mature than those that treat adults differently than other adults because they are not married.”

But I know exactly what she's talking about. I just got married and I am seeing the difference in the way people (not my actual friends though) are treating me... it's unfair and really bizarre.”

“A good question would be what is the fluctuating student loan rate actually based on?When my loans went up 5% after graduating I was not pleased and I certainly would have liked to refinance but even with the housing market...you can only refinance within what the banks allow and what your credit score allows. I guess I don't buy that it is just about better interest rates as it is about people wanting a free ride.”

“No, I graduated getting paid $9 an hour working pt at a newspaper. I had to work another job as well for $9 an hour. I then left that area to move back home with my parents because I couldn't afford what I lived on. I worked retail jobs for 2 years because I couldn't find a job in my field. I did get a job in my field and the division closed so I was out of a job. I worked retail again so I could pay my bills because $500. a month from unemployment didn't cover squat. I deferred my loans for 3 months and resumed paying them for 10 years. I did get a job in my field after that for a whopping $10 an hour and I still make less than 40K. I am almost 40 and I don't own a house. I don't get food stamps, I have not gotten extras from the gov. and never have and I work a full time job because I persevered. I have sacrificed so I could be gainfully employed. Also, I wasn't able to write off the interest on my loans or pay them according to what my income was. Programs that now help graduates with the burden of payment. Call me greedy, go ahead because I know I am not. I am tired of people putting their name to the line and then claiming they want a free ride because they don't want to be responsible.”

“This is total garbage. I signed my student loans going into school at 3% and when I had to pay them back they were at 8%. I wasn't able to refinance and neither have thousands others. We paid. You find a way and pay. It's call sacrifice. Banks haven't conned college students like they did with housing loans. The ones that are conning college students are the schools. I have been out of school for 15 years and tuition has more than doubled...what does that tell you?!”

“This type of post says because I did it and pulled it off so should all of you. Well there is a 1% of the public that was able to become successful millionaires and so therefore should the rest of the 99% of the population. It just doesn't work that way with most people.”

“The government's funding of education opened up a big pool of money for the universities. When that happend it ramped up the prices. Those profs need their perks. However, it is university administrators who've fed at the trough the most.”

“If the govt can lend to banks a 0 interest they can lower interest rates for students”

ktmckinsey on May 20, 2013 at 11:56:39

“I could see your point if they were talking about forgiving student loan debt. As much as that would benefit me, it really wouldn't be fair or feasable, for that matter. Just about any loan (car loan, mortgage, etc.) can be refinanced. Lowering the interest rates isn't the same as forgiving a loan. Everyone still gets their money back plus interest. The fact is, college students are young and make stupid choices. These choices have been made en-masse and are now potentially affecting the future economy. Many young people can't afford to buy houses, have children, get married, etc. This affects all the industries (childcare, real estate, etc.) that serve these markets. I'm all for personal responsibility, but I see a reduction in loan interest as a win-win.”

bummer07 on May 20, 2013 at 11:53:01

“So because you had to pay it everyone else better to. What a wonderful way of thinking. Could you be any more greedy? Times are different but again you must be clueless. You probably came out of college and got a good job, not so for most students today. Please people if you really don't have a clue about realities of today don't post.”

“Yeah that is good too. You should try the cool ranch. It tastes like the old taco dorito flavor chips. Somewhere along the line they changed the taco flavor doritoes to taste kind of bland but the cool ranch does the trick. Kids might not like the spicy flavor though.”

“I tried the cool ranch Dorito's for nachos a couple of times, it was actually pretty good. But i liked the Nacho Cheese flavor better for the nachos. The taco flavor is ok but could have been better. I have tried most Dorito flavors, they have a new Pepper Jack flavor which is pretty good, they could make a taco out of that too and i tried the Pepper Jack flavor for nachos which is good. Yeah i like spicy but not everyone is a fan of it, it is indeed an acquired taste that is true. Alot of things have lost there quality in general, ecspecially with some foods.”
