“Now the house GOP wants to go to conference? A little late for that isn't it or is it? The Senate should pass a democratic wish list: public option, gun owner registration and assault weapons ban, immigration reform, remove the debt ceiling, remove corporate welfare, prosecute those on wall street and banks that gave us the Great Recession, voter protection, legislative redistricting, national gay marriage equality, etc, etc, and take those items to such a conference.

The single payer public option was taken off the table early in the negotiations. Perhaps it is time to move away from the high priced private insurers the current policy allow and address the real issue in health care. We pay twice as much as the rest of the developed nations for health care with much worse outcomes.”

“Dear Editors,

The Speaker of the House demands the President to negotiate but appears to ask the President to negotiate against himself. The President and the Democrats should put together their own wish list. How about a vote on immigration reform? How about an infrastructure and jobs bill? How about leaving the food stamp program intact to help alleviate malnutrition among the poor, working poor, their children and the elderly? How about tax reform for the middle class and small business? How about making incentives for green industries permanent so investors in these industries can plan and make long term investments. Rational gun control? Mr. Speaker will soon see how foolish his position of legislative blackmail is and hopefully encourage his colleagues to go back to work.

How about a bill that effective October 1st no member of congress, their aides and support staff and members of the executive branch (including the President) are not paid until a budget is negotiated, passed and signed by the President. Congress and the administration need to focus on negotiating a budget instead of holding our economy hostage.”

“Yet the Catholic church excommunicated a nun for her role in a medical procedure to save the life of a pregnant woman yet never think about excommunicating an abusive priest.”

Sacerdotus on Apr 22, 2014 at 03:21:59

“This is unrelated to the current story.”

TreetopFlyer on Sep 22, 2013 at 13:08:55

“Abortion was actually invented and perfected by the Catholic church throughout it's history, whereby nuns are routinely impregnated by the priests and the fetuses quietly disposed of on church grounds. This practice has been well documented, as well, though you never hear about it much. More often, when nuns are involved, they are excommunicated or simply kicked out while their male counterparts promoted to new assignments.”

“Not only that, but think of all the cartel leaders who regularly donate to that church and continue to receive the sacraments even while they carry out the murder of thousands of fellow Catholics in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America. The church won't even begun to address this situation and freely accepts the blood money donations.”

Horse Meat Found At Taco Bell In UK

“If it comes from China, Thailand, Vietnam, I don't put in my mouth. Where does your food come from? What is in it? I'm encouraged that COSTCO has higher quality food inspection than the US government. Whatever they put in the BIC MACS for meat is absolutely weird. Remember pink slime? Ae they getting their chicken from China? What's in that white stuff they call Chicken McNuggets? Won't be eating that stuff for sure.”

“China has a shortage of agricultural for their country so they are buying up around the world agricultural land and farms to feed their people. Known as food bowls. It's more than likely the Chinese meats and food products are from Australia. :)”

“Catholic seminaries have long been a gathering place. Not to long ago a European seminary was disciplined because of students not being celibate and sexual intimidation of others. The 50% plus surprised me at the time. There apparently is a culture here that is under the radar for most. Here is a starter for those that find this news. Dig deeper.
