“I come here specifically to not plaster my political views on Facebook. I also resent having my full name plastered here. I have beed harrassed by trolls (on other sites) managed to contact my boss - without knowing my full name (we had a good laugh about it) I can't imagine what would happen if trolls here got a hold of certain information about people.
HP privacy statement says it values our privacy, but it forces us, now, to divulge private information to everyone here.
I'm extremely disappointed and won't be posting much here anymore - if at all”

“That makes sense to me.....I have some good news for you... Well there are options. Perhaps you might be interested in this.
A group of us are trying to contact everyone who seems to have something significant to say or wants a HP-like experience.
We have a good list of viable alternatives and options. Places where honest, vibrant conversation in a community can take place. E mail me at murphthesurf350 @gmail.com Close up the space so it works. The aim is to pool our wisdom and offer choices. There are some good ones out there like PlanetPOV, Daily Kos, HP Refugees, All-len-All, and Epoch. I am already at HP Refugees, Planet POV and Daily Kos. HP Refugees is our site.
We will be passing on info from our common wisdom.”

“So you are afraid of being hit by a car, so you are cautious when you cross the street.
avoiding trouble because you are afraid of trouble - the fear may not be overt or extreme - but it's still fear and the real reason you are cautious.”

“Good grief. It's not fear. I've never in my life been afraid that I would be hit by a car. I don't know what to tell you if you can't differentiate between fear and awareness.”
“Hello Phil, nice to meet you. I use pot for medical reasons. When I was a kid, I tried to get high - I never liked it. I don't like it now. It's pretty difficult for me to find pure CBD (with no THC) so I can get the relief I want withOUT the high. It seems to me shops are only in it for people to get a 'legal' high.
I find CBD works better than asprin for my pain and I don't run the risk that asprin has. My (late) husband was a hemophiliac - he couldnt' take asprin for his pain, plus he had other symtoms that pot helpped. So it's been worth it for me. I'd like to see it legal at the federal level and hopefully then, I won't need to spend $135 for a card each year.
So there's 2 people for you who used for medical reasons”
“I happen to want "medical" marijuana - I want the CBD without the THC
Make it legal so people can grow their own - but I want to see more studies on the benefits of both CBDs and THCs I want to know what kind of doses I should be taking instead of guessing. I want to know that the edibles (I will not smoke) have the amount of CBDs that's listed on the label.
Make it legal so recreational users can grow their own, but I'm for more control over the medicinal aspects”

“every proposal that has come out of this administration to deal with climate change involves hurting our economy and killing American jobs," said Boehner. "That can't be the prescription for dealing with changes in our climate."
but letting polluters pollute as they will with no regulation at all (after all the oil corps gotta make them big profits) will do any good?”
“Who in the he!! is Leada Gore ?- The Blaze had an article that showed from 2000 to 2012 red states received 11.8 trillion in federal aid while blue state received 12.4 trillion in federal aid - -you'll have to find it yourself ,everytime I post the link HP deletes it .”
“Oh you mean the red state governors who take more in fed dollars than they pay to the fed? IOW the taker states?
I really shouldn't bother since you can't really think past 2009 - these problems we're having now started long LONG before Obama - even Bush... Even though tax cuts for the uber rich while starting 2 unfunded wars really did a number on us.”

“don't give that BS - how can blue states with deficits ,cities going bankrupt ,operating above the unemployment rate and can't meet their operating expense contribute”
“that was the thing - the company made him salary, expected him to do more work but didn't compensate him. He had the same salary as the job he did that took 2 people to replace. and they wanted him to do even more work.
If you check the stats Obama has been adding jobs, not taking them away. The problem didn't start in 2009, but it's been getting a heck of a lot better since then”
engineer 15 on May 28, 2014 at 16:50:23
“obama isn't adding jobs republican governors are adding jobs and balancing their budgets , just tell me ,what jobs by definition has Obama added- and it's not getting better -poverty is up ,median family income is down ,the middle class is declining , people such as your fiancé are ,as you say doing more and working for less- the problem started when the democrats took control of congress in 2007 , then one later the economy tanked , even though the democrats were warned”
“My fiance had a job in LA where he was offered a promotion - it took 2 new employees to do the work he had been doing. In his new job, without a raise, they wanted him to work overtime... he asked if they were going to pay him for the over time - they said no so he quit.
So employers are expecting workers to do more (there are stats now showing that American workers have become more productive while wages remain flat) but they want to pay less.”
engineer 15 on May 28, 2014 at 15:32:51
“if your fiancé was an hourly employee it's federal law , he get's paid overtime -- if you fiancé was a salaried employee it's federal law that he is compensated after so many hours,-- do try and tell me different I've owned 3 business and have had as many as 29 employees both hourly and salary- employers are paying less because thanks to the democrat policies the work force is overloaded with qualified people . now just think how much fun it's going to be when Obama gives 11 million illegals a pass and rele4ases them into the work force”
“So you think it makes MORE sense to have them pay something, then turn around and give it back because they are not making enough to survive? And not ALL of them are getting fed benefits, they are just not making enough to have to pay into the system that they are getting no handouts from”
