“How was she lashing out at you? She's the one who has remained calm and has tried explaining things to you, but you seem to want to take it as an attack, which in fact you are the one attacking her. Please, calmly remove your head out of your backside and stop playing Mr. Victim and have a great day.”
“Haha "some of the finest health care you can get." That's if they can find your damn paperwork. My husband is a marine and he applied for VA benefits a YEAR AND A HALF before he got any of those benefits. They even admitted to losing his paperwork. Also as Dafni has stated they are awful when it comes to prevention and treatment.”

“Most vets I know have no problem with them. The've treated me well. What can I say.”
“"From the moment the Florida law took effect in July of 2011 to when a federal judge suspended it with an injunction the following October, a total of 4,086 welfare applicants were drug tested. Of that total, 108, or 2.6 percent, tested positive for drugs, mostly marijuana. The rate of drug use among the general population is above 8 percent. So poor parents seeking assistance in Florida were singled out for drug testing, but it turns out they are actually less likely to do drugs than most people are.
Florida had to reimburse drug-free applicants for their tests, which at roughly $30 a pop amounted to $118,140 -- likely more than the state would have saved by not paying benefits to the 108 applicants who tested positive for drugs."
“Selective reporting, Sarah. "... 1,597 people who filled out applications to qualify for assistance but did not pee in cups would have cost the state $1.8 million in benefits had they enrolled." Granted, there is no way to prove these nearly 1600 people stopped their application process because they knew they couldn't pass a drug test. I can only think that if I were poor enough to really need assistance, I'd take the test no matter how "unfair" I thought it was. Now, if I were loaded, I might leave without completing my application and head for the ACLU office :P
I'm tired of hearing the 2.6% figure from the Florida case. It's not real but boy oh boy, it sure is repeated everywhere! Statistical lie!”
“I think she's glad that her husband cheated because if you read one statement it says: "Despite the red flags that tried to slap me in the face back in my college days" she seems happy that his cheating validated her prior suspicions.”
“Sorry but I don't find rape jokes funny at all. If that makes me one with no sense of humor so be it, but I know far too many people who have been raped and when you look into their eyes you see their unimaginable pain. It is one of the worst things that can happen to someone, because you have to live through it the rest of your life and rarely are they the same person. Remember this can happen to someone that you love; your mother, sister, daughter, even you.”

“I have been sexually molested and still laugh at such jokes. I have known loved ones who have been abused and/or raped and laugh at such jokes.
These people do what they do for a reason...We pay them to not treat us with kid gloves. To engage our darker natures for laughter sometimes. To joke about the things we would not. And yes, in some cases to humiliate us because maybe we take the world too seriously.”

“Would you so see Tosh knowing that he normally crosses the line in any kind of scinario????? The fact is is that she knew she was in a comedy club with a guy that gets heckled for a living and knows exactally how to come back at one. She just wanted to be "that guy" and she got her feelings hurt. Im sure you wouldnt have done the same would you?”

“And thats fine. No one needs to find rape jokes funny. In fact most people probably don't.
However to leave a comedy club (after heckling the performer) and make a news story about it is juvenile at best.”

“She had no problem laughing at the rest of Daniel Tosh's offensive jokes. She probably has no problem laughing at the people who Tosh mocks on his show yet the minute a joke that might apply to her happens, she is all offended. Daniel Tosh has not and will not ever be the cause of a rape. If he had made a joke about a man being raped in jail you would have laughed but since women are poor and defenceless we cannot make fun of them.”
