“That's what they say about the birds and the bees. Fertile or not, eggs are animal products so I guess i just don't understand how they fit in to the vegetarian mind set.”

“Well, so is honey, but that's vegetarian. What it isn't, though, is vegan. As a vegetarian, I am comfortable wearing wool and eating eggs and honey. If someone doesn't want to do that, that's cool, too!”

“How do eggs slide under the wire of being okay? Seems to me that they're really just meat seeds.”

“Someone grossly (but correctly) called eggs "chicken periods." Hens will produce eggs whether or not a rooster is present. All they need is a certain amount of sunlight to make an egg. Only eggs that are fertilized have the potential to hatch and become another chicken.”

Postal Service Proposes 3 Cent Stamp Price Hike, Citing Revenue Concerns

“Fifty cents will buy you part of a snickers bar or half a cup of mediocre coffee. Or, for the same fifty cents (technically 49 cents after the raise) you can have someone come to your home, rain or shine, pick up your letter and, deliver it anywhere in the country, usually within a few days. Inefficiencies? Hardly. Yes, the cost of postage has risen 1266% since 1950 as has everything else (most items have gone up even more, an average of 1400%). So, you can flip out about three pennies if you want but your argument should make sense.”

robertstone1robert on Sep 25, 2013 at 13:48:05

“The 3-cent stamp was in effect till about 1960.
The argument is not about 3 cents. It's about the ballooning cost of stamps every few moments. It is about inefficiency that our money is buying. Management counts on the consumer sector constantly bailing out their inefficiency.”
The Biggest Myth About Obamacare

The Biggest Myth About Obamacare

“Well you might ask that same question to the people who have had their full time jobs evolve into part time employees because their employer either cannot or will not offer health care benefits for a start. Or, ask those whose current rates have skyrocketed. Greed? Maybe. Ignorance, some. The American way? You bet!

Tha ACA is ill conceived, fraught with loopholes and just bad business altogether. The general idea behind it was health care reform. A noble idea but the ACA does nothing to reform and everything to reward bad behavior.

Do the republicans have a better plan? Absolutely not. The ideas they laid out are just as bad. The average consumer has no idea of how health care services and products are priced. If they did their screams of impropriety would level the walls of all three branches of government.

Until some radical changes are made that can never be implemented because of the direction that money flows things will stay the same, too many fingers and damned little pie.”

“All polititicians lie. Kerry is a polititician. Therefore....

As I watched the Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing I couldn't help thinking that Kerry, Hagel and Demsey were putting up a smokescreen. Kerry repeatedly stated that there would be no boots on the ground. The next day I heard that one of the options floating around is to vet and train selected moderate rebels (an oxymoron if ever there was) to help topple the Assad regime. I doubt that the miilitary will use Skype to train these rebels. Perhaps they'll be deployed somewhere safe...like Jordan. Nothing could go wrong by training moderate rebels could it? Wasn't bin Laden a moderate rebel? He worked out well.”

“It may be a hollow victory if the house says no. The president has said that he doesn't need congress to act on his own and he may, out of sheer petulance, do so.

“What I got from watching the hearing was that Kerry is nothing but a mouthpiece to a president who has made threats instead of promises. Kerry has no good answers because there are no good answers. If our representatives follow the will of their constituents they will hang Obama out to dry so that if he does take action on his own it will be noted in the record that he ordered military action against the will of the people. Does it matter? Somewhat. I don't want him bombing Syria in my name.

Nothing good can come from firing missiles at Syria. It won't topple Assad and it won't end the civil war. Kerry states that the only objective is to show the world that Obama meant what he said.”

“States were explicitly given the authority to restrict abortion coverage — it was part of the overall deal. And now, states that aren’t even setting up their exchanges — and are letting the federal government run them — are exercising that power over abortion.

Abortion coverage nearly derailed the health law in 2010 — and that “raised the consciousness” of anti-abortion lawmakers, who saw an opportunity and seized it, said Kentucky state Rep. Stan Lee, a Republican sponsoring an abortion coverage ban for his state’s exchange.

Abortion rights groups say they saw this day coming.

“Abortion coverage restrictions were a nonissue for an incredibly long amount of time,” said Elizabeth Nash of the Gutt- macher Institute. Then, along came Obamacare. “That law really encouraged states to go in and pass these abortion coverage restrictions in their own health exchanges,” she said.

“You've asked the $64k question. Why is the United States doing it alone? Though it seems that if you polled the vast majority of Americans you'd find soft support at best. No matter how limited or narrow (such sterile wording for destruction) Obama's act may be it would serve no purpose. It won't stop the civil war. It won't move Assad from power. And, it won't mitigate the threat to our national security because Syria poses no threat. Obama really needs to learn to humble himself and take a long look in the mirror. He certainly isn't behaving like a world leader.”

“The $64K question is: Why is the United States doing it at all? It's time to stop running to everyone's rescue. It's starting to feel like a set up with people making bad things happen just to get the desired reaction from the U.S. Wasn't it Bin Laden's plan to lure the West into long expensive wars until their empires crumbled under the weight of war fatigue and debt? Don't get played Mr. President. It's a trap!”

“He isn't declaring war and even if he did what does he have to lose? More points off his approval rating? So what? Until we hold our elected officials responsible for their actions he is free to do what he wants approval or not. Some of the countries we've meddled in do things differently. They charge, imprison and sometimes hang the guilty. What will happen to our leaders who show flagrant disregard for the constitution and civil rights? Not a damned thing.
