“I know one shouldn't compare with Julie. But, I'm sorry....Julie's voice was incredible and Carrie's voice did not have the quality or purity of Julie's.

I saw Julie on a talk show, recently, and she was ever so gracious in her acceptance of this ingenue stepping up into this difficult revival. But I don't think, in retrospect, she had anything to worry about, because obviously Julie had the whole package -- voice, looks, demeanor and acting ability -- a true star.

I feel bad for Carrie as these were HUGE shoes to fill and quite frankly, I am not sure anyone, these days, is up to the task.”

“The movie Julie had a studio, re-recording, etc. at her disposal. Singers voices are NEVER the actual song while the film was rolling. It's dubbed in later. Carrie's was live there and now. Not bad.”

“Believe me, folks...this will be a FIGHT.....

Many, many, many Americans have not saved up for retirement. What are they going to do when they hit those golden years????

And, many depended on those "gambling gimmicks" -- 401K plans and were certainly burned during the last financial crisis.

What is solid? And can be depended on? Social Security.

As more and more age into retirement, they will change their views on government and how they manage their twilight years without the assistance of social security.”

“Social Security represents a giant pool of money that no one profits off of (except the American people). That is why Republicans keep attacking it. They are salivating at the prospect of turning that pool of money over to big business. It's also why they want to change the program from defined benefits to defined payments. That way the banks can lose the entire trust fund in reckless gambling, and still be guaranteed to receive millions upon millions of dollars every payday, while our elderly will just have to suck it up and live in poverty.”

Dufresne on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:40:57

“It's mostly those who have not saved who are voting republican, oddly enough.”

“LOL! You get what you pay for.....cutting education funding is so helpful.

Reminds me of when I spent my 12th year of life in a German school, taking 3 languages, 2 math courses, 2 science courses, history, geography, music and gym. I never worked harder in my life.

Funny thing....when I arrived back in the US and they evaluated the work I had done, they wanted to SKIP me a grade AND they placed me in the most advanced math class they had.

We are sooooooo behind the times and we will pay a hefty price for always being behind. As an ex-educator from K-12, I have always felt that this country did not place enough emphasis on EDUCATION -- the great equalizer and economic power builder.”

“Really, Charles....I thought we lived in a world of unemployment....still.

How many companies do you really think are willing to hire those who are 55+ and older....or ones that have advanced degrees (whom they have to pay expensive salaries to)....

Conservatives just don't get "the unemployed". Most of them would give anything to be able to work.

And, Charles, if you don't believe that....then just ask them...some time...instead of making assumptions with NO basis in fact.”

“Hmmmmm....in the state of CA we are required to purchase car insurance....wonder what you think of that...”

Dori Herndon on Nov 22, 2013 at 13:30:34

“You are only required to have liability car insurance by law. That's all we have, because that's the best, we can do. Thank God my husband is good at fixing cars himself. So when a huge deer sucidied its self in front of the car, he got some parts from scrap cars and fixed it. Full coverage is often required by the lender, not the law, if you are making payments on the car so if you wreck it, they can still get their money back.
Insurance is one of the reasons a lot of people can't afford a car and don't have one. But you have to have a body.”

There was absolutely no....reason for the Republicans to block these votes.

Our President has too much class and grace to behave as badly as those who have consistently and constantly blocked every...single....prerogative he has had as our fairly elected President.

The Republicans have done everything in their power to obstruct, obstruct, obstruct....and frankly many of us were beyond SICK of that behavior....

“How Christian of the customer....she handled her server with such grace and acceptance. I am just wondering what Jesus Christ would have thought had he been sitting nearby in the restaurant and witnessed this "prejudiced" slight intended to give harm.”

“As a Christian, I regret to report that I harbor a very un-Christian desire in my heart: that He would smite them hard, repeatedly. That's my anger, a wrong response.

As my anger cools, I also have a wish that He would show those wrongheaded people that their way is the wrong way, a way of hate that does not come from following Him.”

“Political gamesmanship.....

Seriously....who among us does not know what they are up to....

The house GOP wants to pass something as close to the 2014 election cycle as possible so that it looks like they rescued the maiden off the railroad tracks and appear as .....the heroes, they are NOT..... to the voting public and spin it their way.

Hence GOP's House Whip McCarthy's comment....

delay...delay...delay....until the last possible day....(the House GOP mantra)”
