It will be the most hacked ebook.”

Why Bragging Is Not a Bad Thing

Commented Aug 20, 2013 at 18:53:54 in Women

“Bragging is tacky. Always has been.

Even if you accomplished what your bragging about, it still shows some kind of
insecurity about yourself.

This blog sounds like something Ayn Rand would say,”

Ayn Rand was insecure.

Right.

Have you ever read (or heard) a single line she said ?

Read any of her books ?

Nope.

See. I can see right through these silly blogs. Must be a genius.

Silly me.”

“Pleasently surprised to read this.

This was what is was like being a kid for me growing up in the 60s and 70s.

Everybody wanted to go outside and play and as a result, I think, was that
maybe 1 out of 10 kids were obese. And we did things like was mentioned
in the article which would cause a modern parent to start hand wringing.

"Play dates"!!? C'mon you gotta be #%@#%$ kiddin me! Scheduling free time defeats the point of having free time.

This article is good common sense.”

“I am all about "free range" parenting and giving kids independence (even if I find it hard to do as a parent sometimes).

But playdates are not about scheduling free time (and few hours a week is not a huge time investment and still allows for plenty of free time). The reason people plan playdates is that most people don't have a community that allows organic opportunities for interaction with other kids.

In NYC, you can go to the park and there are many kids there at all times of the day. Where my sister lives, if she does not plan playdates for her young children, they would never have the chance to interact with other kids. When I visit friends in the midwest, we are often the only people at the park. People have their own pools, yards, and jungle gyms. There is not the same sense of a common space.”

Robin Hood in Reverse in US: Seven Examples

Commented Apr 7, 2011 at 20:10:00 in Business

“At least in 2011 there are a lot more people who are questioning this " thing of their's " then there
were in the 80's and 90's when people would have been shouted down for questioning the global - downsized -outsourced - speculation economy.

I mean seriously, how can you not see the decline over the past 30 yrs and STILL say " it's all good".”

“{ "There are further strong indications (Congress, when are you going to investigate this seriously?) that the price of oil is being pushed ever higher by targeted trading in the commodity pits".}

Jesus Christ !

When are people going to learn that Congress isn't going to do jack sh#t about the oil companies.

Every time there is a significant increase in oil they bring in the Oil exec's and put up this
big - " were gonna get to the bottom of this" - charade but nothing changes!

Do you really think Obama or Clinton { no need to mention McCain for obvious reason's} are going to march in and demand lower oil prices - and actually make a differance?! Naaa - I don't think so.

As has been said over and over, this country and Government have bought and paid for a long time ago.”
