“I was with him until the vulgarity. It doesn't make me side with Diane, who is an obvious boor without any shred of manners, but it gave her a legitimate reason to be outraged and so defeated the purpose of showing how shockingly insensitive she was.”
“Pretty tame stuff for such outrage. I suggest that the people who complained that their children were exposed check out what their kids are watching on the tv in prime time. There is regularly much more scandalous stuff beamed into our homes daily. As someone else pointed out, what is awful about fully clothed people dancing and singing about tolerance. I wish more kids were exposed to Broadway and other areas of the arts.”
“really? I'm a government employee and I took a big paycut to take my current position. I have very good benefits and much better hours, but anyone who tells you that government workers are making so much more than the private sector doesn't know much about the government pay scale.”
“This would be news if the increase were to take effect immediately. But over the next two years?! By the time it takes effect inflation will erase any benefits. A $2 increase at this point would barely allow people to catch up. But it 2 years it pretty much guarantees they will remain static.”

“Now you have some insite to people living on SS or SSDI or in the miltary who get short changed when and if they decide to put a cola raise out there. Last year it was 1.7 percent. Great way to treat the miltary and our seniors. Didn't stop congress and the senate from giving themselves a 5 thousand dollar raise.”
“Why does Plan B start after getting married? Every woman, every girl, should be working on her own life first before getting married. one of the keys to a happy married life is being fulfilled and happy yourself. Don't start thinking about a career as a Plan B, your own life should be Plan A.”
“Really, you agree that all 20 yr olds act like that? Certainly there are plenty that do it. But there are many who don't and wouldn't rub their half naked butts on a man's crotch in public. To say that "any" 20 yr old acts like that does a great disservice to the many smart young people who make different choices. And porn? yes, there are various levels of porn. While it may not have been hard core porn, any simulation of sex in public certainly rates the label of soft porn. ”

“I never said ALL 20 year olds. And it's not a disservice to anyone to say that acting out is PART of being in your early 20's.
"To say that "any" 20 yr old acts like that does a great disservice to the many smart young people who make different choices:"
Oh would they like a cookie? Different choices could mean they prefer to rub their face in a man's crotch. ”
