11 Reasons To Love Costco That Have Nothing To Do With Shopping

11 Reasons To Love Costco That Have Nothing To Do With Shopping

“You miss the point of not giving you bags. They're recycling the boxes they get the merchandise in by packing your stuff in them. And that $60/year membership? I more than save that much in just gasoline purchases.”

Got Moxie on Nov 22, 2013 at 08:43:24

“Exactly, and many places are charging for bags now anyway. At Costco they'll pack your stuff in easy to carry, easy to recycle cardboard boxes. And for the original poster, I renewed a few weeks ago, it's $55 not $60 and I believe on par with the cost of BJ's and Sam's.”

“Because there are so many illegally bred. Oversupply. As friendly as they are, they are strong dogs and not for everyone. People don't spay/neuter their dogs, they get loose and make more dogs, or breeders look to make a "quick" buck. Because of their "reputation", people are reluctant to adopt them. The dogs who attacked the cop were doing so to protect their human, which people usually think is a good thing. But maybe the woman's dogs were not socialized, which is the woman's fault, not the dogs. But the dogs pay with their lives.”

“You make some good points.  Personally, I would be more afraid to adopt one from the shelter because you really would not know the history.  I'd be very nervous about having one around small children.”

“The Republicans would still find other things to try and repeal. Medicare, Social Security, minimum wage, food assistance, childcare, you name it. That's what this is really all about - setting a precedent and that's why Obama will never cave.”

“Because they need the funding to make the thing work. The Rs WANT the ACA to starve for lack of funding so they can say, "see, we told you so".”

“The second amendment is not a law, its an amendment. Any laws that are proposed dealing with guns must (and do) conform to the 2nd amendment, or else they are challenged in the courts, which happens all the time, and not all survive. The same is true for Obamacare. It was challenged in court, all the way to the Bush Supreme Court, and found to be constitutional. That doesn't mean it can't use some tweaks that are permissible based on how the law was written. What you and the Rs want is for him to hold off the individual mandate for a year. If he does that, there won't be enough funding and the Act will collapse, which is what the Rs want - to be able to say "I told you so". If you're all so convinced it won't work, what was the Republican idea? Oh, right, It was what eventually became Obamacare. You loved it until HE passed.”

“I will never like ACA the way it is. It is very UNaffordable, contrary to democrats beliefs. My personal insurance tripled and my businesses insurance went from 1 million dollars a year to 2 only because of ACA. I'm okay with starting it on Oct 1, but if you do that, you need to make everyone do it then. If it is the law of the land, Obama can't keep changing it on his own and giving his buddies a break on it. We spent over 200 million dollars on a website that doesn't work. They claim it is overloaded with use, but it was not even in the top 500 for used websites last week in America. And lets not forget the people that logged in, saw the terrible rate and logged off, only to decide to pay the tax/penalty for not having insurance. Make it equal for all, affordable for all and maybe the republicans will like it.”

“And of course you are leaving out that if those people who are facing higher premiums do not also have higher incomes, then they qualify for the subsidies. You're making $100k, and your rates go up, you can afford it. If you're like me and making less than 45k, then I can't afford it, but the subsidies are there. My coverage is going down by $600/mo.”

“John Boehner was willing to let the House vote 40+ times to defund Obamacare when he knew it wouldn't pass in the Senate, yet he won't let the House vote on a clean CR because he says their aren't enough votes in the House to pass it? Hypocrite maybe?”

“He's sweating bullets. If a clean CR were brought to the floor, his base would collapse under him like a house of cards. The only thing keeping him in the hot seat is the fear of losing the speakership chair and what the tea party masters would do to him afterwards.”

“Fischer knows nothing about perspective and the effect a wide-angle lens has on a group shot. (It exaggerates the smallness of things farther from the camera). He doesn't know how Photoshop works either. If Obama had been Photoshopped in, they could have enlarged his head to make it the same size as the rest, which they probably would have done IF they had actually been trying to make it look more "real". Besides, as others have pointed out, OBL is dead.”
