“Dr. Drew communicates FACTS about addiction and illless related to drug and alcohol abuse. The use of celebrities on his television program seems to be more of a "side show" approach to spotlighting the tremendous battles that most people have with fighting and overcoming the disease of addiction. I would prefer that he work publically with non-celebrities, so those of us who work to support our loved ones with maintaining sobriety/staying clean can relate to the challenges they face in a more realistic setting.”

“I appreciate your saying it has become a side show(paraphrased), however, he did work for many years as an addition specialist, and on his show, he focuses on celebrities, but he also is in CNN and other news outlets speaking for the everyone. Sadly, we live in a culture where celebs are the one's who make the headlines when they die of drugs--but in my opinion, it seems to still get the message, that no matter who you are or what status you have, money, beauty, etc--you TOO can die from abuse of drugs. the reason I use the term, "Abuse of drugs" is because there are also millions of Americans who need pain medication to stay alive in the face of sever chronic pain. Jeff C was an addict before he was injured and aquired the chronic pain, it was a deadly combintion, because his psychology wanted more and more.

Please adopt from animal shelters (aka death camps for pets) when you are looking for a companion. There are so many wonderful animals waiting to be rescued at the animal shelter, and for every one that is adopted, several are euthanized because no one wants them.
Be a hero and a savior to an animal.”

“You have to be careful with shelter dogs. Once brought an lab, border collie mix home. Turned out he had parvo. It killed him and nearly killed my German shepherd too. Because it's in feces it gets in all over the yard. We had to do a controlled burn on a half acre to get rid of it. Nightmare of an ordeal all around.”

“I've saved about 5 dogs that way in the course of my life. Every one of them turned out to be sweethearts.”
“The way to put money into the pockets of the middle class is to EMPLOY them. All this talk about tax rates is only applicable if INCOME exists. Where are the ideas to create jobs??
Mitt is a MASTER at buying companies, firing the employees, and reaping the profits.
Not so sure about his ability to create jobs...that would affect the middle class positively and he really has no concern for THEM.”

“Give me the name of ANY Repub who is concerned about the middle class!!!”

“You don't create jobs by laying a huge debt on society. One way to create jobs is to reduce the US debt. You know, that massive unsustainable deficit spending Obama is burdening the US with.
Borrowing from our future to create the illusion of prosperity today is NOT job creation.”

“Mitt's pretty good creating jobs in India and China.”
“One of the most powerful actions we in the 99% can take is to close our accounts with the "too big to fail" banks and put our assets in the smaller, local banks ala "It's a Wonderful Life." Mr. Potter be DAMNED! Hello Harry Bailey!!
I'm a soon-to-be-former customer of B of A, and just waiting for direct deposit to go to my new bank on Friday. Will close the account Saturday if all goes as planned.”
“Newt doesn't get the joke - His opinions, ideas, and suggestions have absolutely no credibility, and are complete nonsense. The fact that GOPers have given him a stage for consideration to be elected President shows their utter desperation as a party.”
“I was waiting to see if things would get better or worse...actually I have a 2nd account with a smaller institution that will now become my primary bank. And yes, I do hate them so badly and will no longer have an account with them.”

“I also use a smaller bank for everyday checking, they actually appreciate the business. BOA would rather get rid of the 10k or less accounts and save money in the long run, anyone who pays for a debit card is just gravy....”
“For many, the oceans are Mother Earth's toilet bowl. "God's creation" is fast becoming a waste land, thanks in part to those who place a higher value on profits than on preserving this planet. What seems odd to me, is that many who claim to be "God fearing" are the most vocal opponents and critics of those who are crying out for humanity to change its ways.”
“McHenry's staff is blocking and reporting anyone who posts messages to his facebook page that they don't like, regardless of whether or not it contains profanity, vulgarity or other unacceptable communication. Censorship and cowardice that is reflective of this poor excuse for an American politician, and an example of how the First Amendment is a joke to his minions.”
