Marie Fleming, Paralyzed Irish Woman, Again Denied Right To Die

Commented Apr 29, 2013 at 21:45:46 in World

“It's ironic that most people opposed to a suffering person's right to die call themselves "Christians." What do they think Jesus would do? Their rigid, cold lack of compassion shows just how degenerate much of "Christianity" has become.”

Stephen Hawking: Space Exploration Is Key To Saving Humanity

“Hawking may be a genius, but he's totally out of touch with reality on Planet Earth if he thinks going into space is going to save humanity from its own greed and vicious every-man-for-himself mentality, if those attributes don't change. Fortunately, there is some hope, as many areas of the globe seem to be becoming aware that rule by the rich and powerful isn't good for the rest of mankind.”

rolnutz on Apr 11, 2013 at 19:14:33

“I can't think of one country in the world that isn't run by the rich and powerful and if there are any,they certainly have nothing to show for it. Isn't that why people from everywhere want to come to the US or other places that are ruled by the powerful, instead of places ruled by dictators or roaming tribes?”

“You have to think about several things here.. Our population is growing so exploring and terraforming is essential. And if we have human beings on 2 celestial bodies there are only a few things that we can comprehend ending our civilization.. To terraform a planet can range from several hundred to a thousand years, so we need too get priorities straight and start thinking cosmically and acting globally now!”

Aquest on Apr 11, 2013 at 19:03:28

“Neither Hawking or the article said or implied that Hawking things going into space will save humanity 'from its own greed and vicious every-man-for-himself' mentality. Those are your fears/concepts/beliefs, not his.”

“It's amazing to me how many of the Foxophiles who love to hate on "Big Government" are blind to the fact that Snowden is a patriotic whistleblower who has let his fellow Americans know how their rights are being abused by "Big Government." They seem more than ready to sacrifice their rights in the name of an ephemeral "security."”

“A former girlfriend of mine -- a psychologist -- was of the opinion that women who didn't like beards basically didn't like men.”

violettefemme on Mar 12, 2013 at 19:29:14

“Ah she's quite wrong and should maybe learn to just speak for herself.

I can appreciate a closely clipped goatee-stache combo, but anything more and there goes kissing...and if kissing goes, then there is no relationship.

I just can't stand a full beard in my face...also, when dining. Ugh. Most unattractive. I adore men, and have no one "type" but clean-shaven wins, hands down, every time.”

bubbles5 on Mar 12, 2013 at 13:50:35

“Wrong! LOVE men, hate beards. They look fine, but they feel like brillo pads against my skin. Maybe men who have beards don't really like women! ;-)”

“Your ex-girlfriend's opinion was off. I know lots of women who don't like beards but love men. My wife being one of them.”
6 Biggest Myths About Food Busted

6 Biggest Myths About Food Busted

“A recent Princeton study found that "male rats given water sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup in addition to a standard diet of rat chow gained much more weight than male rats that received water sweetened with table sugar, or sucrose, in conjunction with the standard diet." That is very clear-cut evidence. Other research has found that most HFCS must be processed by the liver (which is hard on that organ), but that sucrose can be processed by cells all through the body.”

“What kind of human beings are these bank executives? Their actions show them to be cold-hearted criminals who have absolutely no concern or empathy for the well-being of their fellow humans. Unfortunately, they represent a sizable slice of today's corporate executives. It is their total self-centeredness and lack of ethics or empathy that have created the America we see today.”

“It's so true. I use to work for Wachovia Bank, and when it went under, they gave the CEO a bonus and a car. If you look at any board members in an corporation, they all give themselves raises and they approve Bonuses for C.E.O.'s. They don't believe that being fair to the employees or consumers is good business. They want to make hundreds of millions of dollars.”

Can Civil Society Survive in a Free Market Economy?

Commented Jul 22, 2010 at 22:33:53 in World

“So how is the situation in Eastern Europe different from that in the United States? It's not, of course. Whether it's finance, energy, mining, the drug industry, or virtually any other sector of society you can think of, Big Business influences government decisions for its own benefit and to the great detriment of a majority of citizens. Corruption is so endemic in the U.S. that it has become almost invisible if you're not looking for it. Certainly, ALL the major media do little to uncover the problem.”

“Thanks, Dr. Hyman, for this wonderfully informative and helpful article.

You are a voice of sanity in a literally drugged society, in which Big Pharma and its mostly unconscious medical lackeys prescribe massive doses of symptom relievers that do nothing to cure most diseases and actually worsen health.”

“Thanks for your thoughts which I totally agree with. My husband was put on 4 or 5 different drugs after his heart attack, and slowly he realized the side effects of each and HE slowly dropped each one within a month. He was 86 when he had his attack. We were stunned that, since we quit red meat in the late '70's when the Texas cattlemen killed their cattle because they were losing money, we were stunned that such people could do such things and vowed we would never eat that again, and haven't. We changed so much of our diet, and told doctors and nurses this while he was in the hospital. Some said, "think of it this way. If you both hadn't changed the way you eat, he most likely would have had a heart attack long before he was 86 years old, (back in 2006 ). We are so sick of the drug pushers and all their commercials every few minutes on TV and the serious side effects people subject their bodies to. Slowly, maybe, people are getting smarter.”

“What earthly difference to the spill cleanup does it make if Obama plays golf? He's totally sold out the American people by letting BP run the show, anyway. There's nothing for him to do -- unless he decides to do what he should have done weeks ago, and that is completely take over the cleanup process, utilizing BP's expertise, and order BP to shut up and clear all public comments through the government.”

Teeninchee on Jun 22, 2010 at 00:39:52

“And just as sure as he did THAT the cries would be Obama takes over one more thing. More big government. And the governors of Mississippi and Louisiana are begging him to remove the moratorium and let them get back to drill baby drill. "He" is not the one stopping boats because they lack life preservers. It should be protocol. Boats don't get out on the Gulf without proper safety equipment. Just watch. Someone will have an accident and life be lost.==THEN see what people will scream the president should have done. Even my 5-year-old grandson asks about this spill. "Is it real?" Yes. "Is it a real bad thing?" Yes. "Are they going to get it fixed?" They are trying to. It is a part of nightly prayers.Help SOMEBODY know what to do.”

Yurdelite51 on Jun 22, 2010 at 00:07:14

“You id.iot. BP is responsible for cleaning up the mess. If it were the opposite, then republicans would be complaining that tax payer money is being spent to clean up after a private company. What a pathetic bunch of miserable people.

It does not matter what Obama does, he is a black man in a white man's "job" and they are having a hissy fit like a bunch of ba.bies.”

“Why is a leading Democrat mouthing Republican talking points? What a wretched, dishonest effort to obfuscate the issue! Never a mention of net neutrality. If Comcast, AT&T and other corporate hogs are allowed to control Internet access and speed, democracy in the U.S. will be well and truly dead. (It's dying fast enough as it is.)”

Colorado's Teacher-Evaluation Law May Mark A National Shift

Commented May 23, 2010 at 22:25:03 in Denver

“There they go blaming teachers again for whether or not students learn. (I'm NOT a teacher, never have been.) They don't blame college professors for whether or not college students learn. The fact is that the person doing the learning (student) is responsible for whether he or she learns. And parents play a big role. You could swap the faculty of most high-scoring schools with the faculty of low-scoring schools, and the two schools' scores would not change. A simple, scientific test like that would prove that the "blame-the-teachers" movement is absurd. But those in charge have no intention of running such a test. They want an easy scapegoat -- and teachers are it!”

reasonshouldrule on May 23, 2010 at 23:23:46

“Fanned. You are so right. I'm a retired university prof., and no one ever suggested I was "responsible" for whether or not my students learned. It is clear at this level that it's the student's responsibility to learn or not. You are also right about swapping teachers at high-scoring schools and low--scores wouldn't change. If people would just THINK about how they themselves learn, they would realize that a good teacher helps, but mostly it's the individual's motivation, interest, and industriousness.”
