“nicely put. as someone who's been watching from outside, it's nice to see glimpses of cognizance. i hope there is much more of it lying in wait. frankly, the world may depend on america coming to its senses”

“it is possible she knows him better than you and she recognizes he's messed up. she didn't say she supports what he's done, just that she supports the person she knows. but, yes, it is much easier to make snappy, snarky comments about someone and a situation you know virtually nothing about except what is available from media stories written to make money. i'm not suggesting he's innocent of reprehensible behaviour or that he isn't responsible for what he's done. however, i know i don't have all the facts so i'm not really in a position to judge. perhaps you are.”

“She certainly could have acknowledged that he has hurt people or perhaps that his drinking has affected him - something. But to simply tell everyone that she supports this swell guy was grotesque. This isn't the first time he has said/done some hateful things.We can all use our judgement as to what is real and what isn't without having a court hearing. In the same paragrpah you even acknowledge that something wrong happened. And why should he be subjected to "snappy, snarky" comments. My guess is if he said something truly h8ful about the Church you'd be shrieking but heck, women and jues - whatever...”

“Talking about how nice he is after such heinous comments is simply enabling. People don't change unless they realize their are consequences to their actions.
She can support him a lot more by saying that BS doesn't fly with her and not commenting either way in public.”

“mercola "gets" veganism, that's why he doesn't promote it... rather he recommends various shades of an omnivorous diet. if you read what he said above you'd know that (recommendation #4). as for your weight loss, congratulations. but keep in mind that people do actually lose weight and feel extremely healthy eating "eggs, milk and dead animals".”

“taken from the article above, he said "I was very content and satisfied. I put myself on hold...." blah, blah, blah
why does nobody actually read before jumping on others for very specific details? i don't give a rat's @$$ what either of them think, feel, or do, but come on people, it's time to raise the bar on irrelevant commenting.”

“Satisfied is an important word their. Interpretation is required to judge what satisfied means. For me to be satisfied Id have to be happy. For you satisfied might just mean not having your bank accounts emptied. Who knows?!”

“where would you go that you would be surrounded by such people? my experience is that happy types are very much in the minority in most circumstances”

“Maybe it depends on where you live. Having lived on both coasts I can say that West Coasters are happier than East Coasters -- or they appear to be, anyway. Maybe they just work harder at putting up a cheerful facade. I live on the West Coast now.”
“because part of tiger's sales appeal was that he was a happily married good guy. it's her money and it's not really your business what the settlement is. if you won the lottery (for doing nothing) would you give it all to the victims of katrina or some other charity? easy to tell others what they should do”

“remember that when you drive a car or drink any alcohol or walk down the street or do anything that has any risk associated with it, we wouldn't anyone to have to pay for your poor judgment”

“Your point is? I drive the speed limit and I don't "drink,"
Accidents are known insurable risks, borne by the underwriter and the insured.
I like that arrangement. I think asking for responsible behavior is part of preventing injury to all of us, is pretty sound policy.
It is a reasonable step before we need to make Draconian decisions. Would you prefer that we "ration" health care in a way to deny care to those who continue to refuse to alter their diets, use tobacco, etc,..... AFTER they need chronic care?
That's where we are headed. I'd like to see education and prevention prevail, before we need to engage in some Darwinian driven behavior.”
