“We found it to be entertaining and the actors acted the parts quite well. So maybe you should see it for yourself or (gasp) read the book series and make an opinion for yourself.”

“Uh.... nah. I thought about it a time or two. I do read genre stuff and sometimes Sci-Fi, but this..... doesn't seem like it would float my boat.
I have some ideas about a-h* and their work, I'm just not convinced that Card is worth it. W.S.Burroughs probably shot his wife, Picasso was a d*, for their work I'll go some distance. For Card, I'm just not seeing it.”
“Naturally, there are parallels between their onscreen and off-screen relationship, as Smith notes. "[Y]our father's the biggest movie star in the world, and you're struggling for your little piece of dignity in this extreme shadow."
Swelled head much? I wouldn't say he is the biggest star in the world, Sheesh!”
“Washington State's minimum wage is 9.00 an hour. Go there. There are many places that pay above min. wage here in CO as well. Big O Tires, our golf course, some jobs at our grocery stores, our libraries. Do some research they are out there.”
“I'm sorry but if you have the money to donate to charity, then you have the money to pay the extra taxes or whatever it is that effects them. Give me a break!”

“Yes, but wouldn't you want to give any money left over to the needy and not the corrupt government who will use the money to generate more stupid programs??
It was better when you had a choice - Now the government is stealing from the poor to pay themselves and they still pat themselves on the back.”
“Since when is E-3 fresh out of boot camp?? Each branch has different pay scales per rank level. My son is fresh out of AF boot camp and makes under a $1000.00 a month. They take GI bill money out and tech school food money out of his check once a month as well. He is not even going to be an E-2 until he goes to his duty station next month. I would like to see anyone on the outside survive on $1000.00 a month.”

“You can enter the military a E-3 if you have been through the ROTC..”
“Um I don't think so. Do you actually read whose idea the cuts were? Here let me help you.
WASHINGTON (AP) - House Republicans' "fiscal cliff" counteroffer to President Barack Obama hints at billions of dollars in military cuts on top of the nearly $500 billion that the White House and Congress backed last year, and even the fiercest defense hawks acknowledge that the Pentagon faces another financial hit.
The proposal that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and other Republican leaders sent to the White House this week calls for cuts of $300 billion in discretionary spending to achieve savings of $2.2 trillion over 10 years. The blueprint offered no specifics on the cuts, although the Pentagon and defense-related departments such as Homeland Security and State make up roughly half of the federal government's discretionary spending.”

“An overwhelming 71 percent of the population says it favors spending cuts to reduce the budget deficit, but cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are all unpopular. Defense cuts, by contrast, poll pretty well. The modern-day version of the guns or butter choice is guns or grandma's hospital bills, and the public clearly prefers grandma's hospital bills ("Money Box" Nov 27 2012)The American people have been brainwashed by the Democrats that entitlements/social welfare is far more important than a strong military/defense The Democratic Party is the threat from within. ”
“This child is not an actor. Big difference. Before Toddler's and Tiara's she was just a normal kid. Now she is a normal kid pushed into tv by a greedy network and greedy parents. There was another show, Table for Five I believe and once the kids told the parents they didn't like being on tv anymore, they pulled the plug.”
Hope Ledbetter on Oct 23, 2012 at 14:45:33
“But there isnt a big difference at all. Child actors are not child actors until their parents shove them into it. Greedy parents push their kids into acting all the time. Look at Macaulay Culkin. MK and Ashley were infants when they started, I dont think it was their choice.”
“Are you saying I am on food stamps? Wow, what an ignorant statement by you. I am simply tired of my kids education getting cut and the cost of college going through the roof and college also getting cut. Is Obama innocent in all this? Nope. Personally I cannot stand either of them and wish there was a better choice. There is fraud, your right and it needs to be addressed and taken care of but plenty of normal people rely on public transportation to get them where they need to go. You can't say you don't want your tax dollars to go to anything right? I would rather my money go to fund education instead of our Superintendents $180,000 salary!! Really?? I would rather my money go to help fund Medicare or Medicaid so people like my parents who use it the way it's supposed to can still have health care and not go broke in their old age because they live in CA where everything is going to Hell and their money does not go as far as it should. ”
“Education, Medical and transportation. Gee why is that not a surprise? So we will have a bunch of dumb kids running the country one day who are so in debt due to medical bills and can't take public transportation because it won't be around or will be so expensive you might as well drive a car? Great, just great. Do we need cuts? Yes but not to these areas.”

“So actually we see this country about the same. As far as Obama he is the one that is take 718 billion out of medicare to fiance Obamacare. He said he is saving that much but then using it on Obamacare assistance vouchers.Obama failed us so I am willing to see if the someone else will lie to me for the next four years. Sorry again if you though I said you were getting FS.”

“Rhoda you should look at the facts about mast transit how many operate in the red. The cost every county in this country pays for you medical transports. I have a neighbor who uses a handicap transport service to go to the drug store. Now how much does it cost the tax payer for that? What is wrong with the US mail, Fed Ex or UPS. Oh three dollar (if that ) to 150 dollars if not more for the bus yeah cut it. I can also let her give you the address where you can trade your food stamps for cartons of smokes. Helping those who use it right, that can't help themselves I am all for but cut all the fraud and waste out of the system is what needs to be done. I see you never mentioned 716 billion cut from Medicare by Obamacare that goes into more funds for Americans to have something they don't need. Or may be the 87 billion in tax increases will do even more.”

“To what areas?”

“A vote for Romney/Ryan will result in "a bunch of dumb kids running the country one day..."
That "one day" will happen in January if they are elected.
“Even with dental records, it still takes time. It's not instant like on tv. I think if they can find out tomorrow, that short amount of time is good. They also may need two ways to ID, depending on the condition of the body.”
“The theory goes, once they kill, they will again. They could have used a tranquilizer gun on it but you run the risk of the tiger now having tasted human blood, no longer being a safe creature to have in the zoo.
I am for saving the animal if they are able but sometimes it's just not possible.
We have the DOW here and we call them the DOWD (department of wildlife death). We live in an area with a state park and a huge open space that bears live in and each time they wander into the neighborhoods looking for food or water, DOWD kills them instead of moving them far out. Sad really.”

“lol are you serious? A wild tiger is not more dangerous after having killed a human. They are apex predators. They will kill you if you are within reach as quickly without having eaten you before as having done so.”

“It's not like the tiger is a cute little pet you're going to cuddle and play with. If it's kept where it's supposed to be, and people follow instructions, they could have kept it alive.”
“Catcher in the Rye anyone?? Laced with profanity and hookers and all kinds of mischief and it is on the reading list at our school. No one has tried to ban it or take it off the required reading list. So what it has the F in it? Seriously I hear worse on a daily basis picking my kids up from school.”
gdzilla2 on Aug 15, 2012 at 13:52:48
“Actually, Catcher in the Rye has been very controversial with many parents and schools for years. I happen to love the book, read it in middle school and allowed my son to read it at age ten and we discussed it while he was reading it and after. I didnt censor what my children read for the most part although there were books I told them they needed to wait a few years for. My son's fourth grade teacher told me she didnt think it was appropriate at all that he had read The Good Earth..never understood that one! You did forget one important thing about Catcher in the Rye..it was full of flits, too LOL”
“Okay that came out wrong. Hmm.. can't really think of a different word for it but sometimes to save costs, if they kill themselves, well saves all the trouble? Is that better? But I can't have too much compassion for those who are mass murders sorry.”
