“What a team ignorance + stupidity.Nothing but a experiment in Randian social survival of the fittest. Don't have a job? Obviously, it is your fault the CEO's are doing fine. The rich are getting richer on the backs of the working people. Working peoples wages haven't gone up since 1978,while the 1% have gone up over 200%. If those lazy poor people would just go to work ,be grateful for the huge windfall of minimum wage,then they could pay more taxes and the debt would go down. Then everything would be coming up roses!Right..er correct??”
“As much as I hate to agree with anything this guy says he did have a point"Some parents completely disengage themselves from their obligation to oversee and ensure the successful education of their children. Some parents act as if the responsibility to educate, and even care for their child, is primarily the responsibility of the public school system.
95% of success is because of parent involvement. The public schools have become a low cost alternative to day care. Grades are a thing of memorized pap that shows a successful school. Then everybody gets their federal money and everybody is happy,right?? We have automatons that "will not be left behind." Unfortunately they cant add, write cursive or think but they will not be b y -god left behind.”
“Since when does the recipient of a GIFT have the audacity to complain that it is not enough.This woman was/is classless and you are far off better without her. Next time you see her she will be looking for a place to crash .You can get the100 back then.”

“Well I would never complain like that. However, it seems that here the guests are getting "the gift" since they get to attend a lavish wedding and feast for just $50 bucks. That's not fair. ”
“I am all for freedom of the press. However if we had the "Media" that we have today. June 5th 1944 would be a screaming headline about the huge invasion in Normandy. Freedom also means responsibility.The "publics right to know" is not in a Constitutional right.”
“If it is such a good idea why are they sending it to us?? If they want to refine this garbage let them pollute their own country.From what I have heard we receive no benefit from this pipeline. Most of the jobs are temporary,and the oil sands have too much sulfur for our use. This is a win lose situation. The Canadians win because they keep their country clean, we lose because it does nothing to stop dependence on foreign oil.”
“Where have all of those whining about this?? This is part of the Patriot Act. Remember? After 9/11 we begged them take or civil rights away so we can be safe.Remember what Ben Franklin said: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Benjamin Franklin "
“What a bunch of hooey. The news media has no problem exposing secrets of the US. I hear of the "secret plan" that by publishing puts our soldiers at risk.I wonder what would have happened during WWII if a paper had published "a secret plan to invade Normandy". The media has no one to blame but themselves. The 24hour"Opinion cycle"is not journalism.I think it is funny that Fox news/Murdoch et al.,after hacking private information, is now on it's high horse. Where is the prosecution for that??”
“Why don't you look at some facts. The debt limit is a fantasy. Nowhere in the Constitution is there a limit on the debt.As a matter of fact the 14th Amendment says there is no limit.The 14th amendment says "Section 4. "The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned" So Constitutionally we cannot default. That must be one of those amendments that the right doesn't like.Why don't you look at the real problem of the trillions stashed overseas so millionaires don't pay their fair share of taxes. I am still waiting for some "Trickle down" Wages in the US haven't risen since 1979.Yet I need some "skin in the game" I'm sorry I got all the skin I got just paying for food and medications.”
“This is a toy. As a toy it is harmless .I am sick of women whining about toys and the "unrealistic"values that those toys engender. If it is so bad to look pretty and fit (Ok I know Barbi's body is impossible) why is one of the biggest markets women's beauty products.The stock answer is I am doing this for myself"BALONEY! women dress like they do to attract a man (or woman). Women need to lighten up. The reason they get 25% less than men is because they have a career then "Want to be a Mommy.". I wonder how many men get "Paternity Leave"Women don't want to be equal they want to be above everyone else.Women "want it all" I would like to know what"all" is.I would like to have some of it all too. I am just too busy working to pay for the stuff women seem to have to have. In a conversation with my wife,in a walk in closet that looks like a Turkish bazaar, she had the temerity to say"I don't have a thing to wear.
I am so sick of "be proud of your curves" What that means is it is ok to be fat and unfit and woe to any man who points that out.
What I find amusing though,is,that a video game with women being disemboweled brings out no outrage. It is the pretty girl that the overweight,physically unfit and entitled American women go after. Jealous much??”

“Overreact much? Being one of those overweight American women you feel the need to blame for mothers finding a deformed, unrealistic piece of plastic to be a bad role model for girls, you should probably check your prejudice at the door. I, personally, have no problem with Barbie. I had about twenty of them growing up and obviously they did nothing for me as far as body type aspirations. I don't think that having a few toys for girls that show REALISTIC body types on females is really too much to ask though. It's a shame that you have issues with women, as obviously you do. And I fail to understand how someone accepting their less than perfect body type has anything to do with you.”

“be careful....you keep telling the truth and this site will block ya.”
“And you Sir prove mine.You use words such as civil and adult after a diatribe on peoples morals that proves you have no idea of what you speak. My and my liberal counterparts morals are just fine.Just because we dissent it doesn't mean our '"morality is any better or worse than anyone else. Look to the right for torture,rendition and wars of convenience.
Look at the right and see greed, hypocrisy,and the downfall of the American Dream.isn't that one of those conservative Talking points? The return of the American Dream? The American Dream died and Ronald Reagan,GB the 1st and GB the 2nd have killed it We sit on the bones of a once great country, sold down the river by those bought and sold by the corporations.”
“My question to you is if this is so offensive to you, why are you here??I do agree that it is just biz as usual.But"The vile, nasty depths to which some democrats will sink to is once again exposed for all to see.
The ONLY people who will NOT be offended by this are those who have very low morals."Is just a bit extreme.
Apparently you are one of the Fascists that attempt to judge everyone from some whacked out moral code. When was the last time one of your ilk called the President"Hitler-Like" for forcing you to have healthcare. When was the last time you heard one of you saying that Newtown is not enough? Are you fighting so more children can die?? Is that what the 2nd Amendment means??
People like yourself wouldn't know morality unless you looked in your wallet. The Fascists on the right are doing their level best to ruin this country. They don't care about anyone but themselves.Why don't you go watch Fascist News and leave the rest of us alone. I certainly would not want to offend your morality,unless of course,if it really pisses you off.”

“HEHEHEHE! How funny. You prove my point with your inane, nasty, vitriolic diatribe.
You seem to be the nasty, vile, non thinking, low information obamaite type of person I was referring to..
I made No personal attacks on anyone.
If you have the ability to refute my assertions I would appreciate it.
Unfortunately people like you seem to lack the ability to respond to those you disagree with in a civil, adult manner.”
“As a matter of fact ,yes I would prefer my children to smoke pot rather than drink alcohol. The first mind altering drug we all use starts when we are children. I dare you to feed a 3 year old a bowl of Captain Crunch and let him wash it down with Mountain Dew. If that ain't tweakin' there ain't a cow in Texas.”
“I have very little sympathy for the so-called justice system. The police and the courts are shills for the growing prison industry.They have very little accountability when they kill an innocent. When was the last time a Cop went to prison for killing someone with a gun.The police in this country will use any excuse to harass, incarcerate, and generate profits.The mandatory sentencing laws just feed the system. Now, the prisons have no interest in rehabilitation. In fact,they have a vested interest in making criminals worse.The revolving door has to stop. The profit has to be taken out of putting people in prison. The US is 10% of the worlds population and 25% of its prisoners. Most of those in prison are there for non-violent offenses. But they generate 28,000.00 dollars a year in revenue for Prisons ,Inc. Want to cut the deficit.Let all the pot smokers out,not the murderers or the rapist just the people who got caught with some pot.That will darn near empty the prison,and shut down the DEA. Now there is some cuts I can get behind. OH MIGHTY BUDGET LET MY PEOPLE GO!”

“I just saw a news-clip that we're number one in the percentage of people we lock up. Beating out Rwanda, Russia and China. And I absolutely agree that the profit motive has a lot to do with that.”
Dan Givens on Apr 10, 2013 at 19:32:09
“Actually, 5% of the world's population and 25% of its prisoners.”
“North Carolina Bill # H494 was from last session and it says"
"AN ACT to allow the use of CONTINUOUS alcohol monitoring systems as a condition of pretrial release, as a condition of probation, to mitigate punishments for impaired driving offenses, and to ensure COMPLIANCE with child custody and visitation orders."
Now we know what bill h494 is where is there anything about a "official Religion" As usual the right whines about the Constitution unless they are the ones breaking it. So kmiller you were saying??”
BlakKat on Apr 3, 2013 at 16:48:07
“Actually, that is H494 but from 2011 or so. There was also an H494 bill in 2013. It was kind of confusing.
The new bill still pretty much goes about establishing an official religion.”
“I wonder what all of those Coal miners are going to do when we stop using coal?? There is no such thing as "clean coal". The Mountaintop removal is destroying what was one of the beautiful areas in the country .Now it looks just like any other full landfill.I am a supporter of the UMW. The problem is that their jobs are becoming obsolete. We have natural Gas by the billions of cu.ft. California is starting to have Natural Gas at the pump. Coal does nothing but ruin the air,land and peoples lives.The only reason anyone wants to use coal is because it is cheap. You always get what you pay for.”
