“It's too bad the United States didn't monitor our own elections this well when GW Bush stole the election from Al Gore, the person voted for by the majority of American people! We wouldn't be in the mess we're in now if Gore if had won. Just think of Gore for 8 years followed by Hillary.... I think we would be in a much better place considering the Clinton admin had a surplus of money when Bush took over. Talk about voter fraud! What hippocrates!”

Your statements are false, plain and simple. You should be angry at the media that has lied to you.
No 1,there was not a surplus of money when Clinton left office. The social security and medicare liabilities alone were hugely beyond revenues. The Republican congress stopped Clinton from spending HUGE amounts of money. He refused welfare reform until the Republican majority came in and then went along with it.
All Al Gore had to do was win either his home state or Clinton's home state, which he did not.
Popular majority? In California, over a million absentee votes were not counted. Why? Because if all went for Bush, it would not change the state-wide win for Gore. It was pointless to count them. However, absentee ballots usually went 80% Republican. So, until all votes are counted, you cannot say who won the popular vote. You are talking about a small part of a percent nation wide.
In 2004, Bush was re-elected by over 4 million votes.
Clinton should have resigned and that would have given President Gore the edge he needed to win. With less than 2 years in office, he could run two more times.
Blame Gore for losing. One big theme of his was Iraq.
Go and view the you tube videos. He complained that the first Pres Bush did not go in and get Sadam Hussein. Bush 1 said it would bog us down in a civil war and cost lives and money.”

“Before I even clicked on the article I was going to copy/paste the article's headline and then reply: "Duh" but I see after reading the comments I'm far from the first to react in this way. Are the powers that be so stupid they didn't know this?”
“So they don't want insurance companies to pay for contraception and they want to force this expensive procedure on young women in order to traumatize and guilt-trip them into keeping the baby even if they have no way to pay for it's upbringing etc.... Starting to sound like they want us to reproduce. More consumers to buy their crap and fight their wars. If men were the ones who got pregnant this wouldn't even be on the table! We should regulate Viagra etc according to women's standards. We could cut down on crime by castrating our males and solve the contraception problem too. Women need to start making laws that invade the men's reproductive parts. Perhaps we should enact a law that if a woman can't get an abortion, the baby automatically becomes the father's sole responsibilty or something.”
“"The rest of us" doesn't pay for my health insurance; I do. It should be a covered expense. Some policies cover Chiropractic care and some don't. Any service that prevents a more catastrophic and expensive service should be covered IMO”
“If men could get pregnant, this whole issue wouldn't even be an issue.
Women need access to free or at least affordable contraception. Young women who are not yet ready to get pregnant will have sex one way or the other. I have never had a boyfriend who paid for birth control. I've never met a female who has ever had a man pay for the birth control. For the female, it is expensive and if she soesn't want to be raising a child then she needs to protect herself. You first have to have a gynecological exam from a doctor ($150) then either 6 months of pills at $25 month = $150, or the shot which lasts 6 months and cost around $100. Condoms run about $12 - $15 for a pk of 3 condoms. How often is average for young people? Even condoms will cost over $100 month. ($1200 year)”

“I think it is only considered "treason" if the person carries through with a threat.
Treason: 1. the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state. 3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
“Christmas is an extremely stressful time of year for just about everyone. And of course it's worse for people who are poor. I think the whole custom is just wrong. It puts too much pressure on people to spend money they can't afford to spend to get something for someone who probably doesn't even want or need the something, only to make the big corporations (Walmart) and China richer. I'll bet very little of the money spent on Christmas stays in this country. And even if it does, it's only making the rich richer and making the poor more poor. People get late on their rent and never catch up, people steal... This poor guy foolishly pawned something that is simply not replaceable. I'm surprised his emotional attachment and pride allowed him to do that under any circumstances. I think it should be perfectly acceptable for people to opt out of Christmas if they can't afford Christmas presents or simply don't want to participate. It's a shame people have to feel obligated to do it.”

“That was really nice delilah, another random act of kindness.”
“I find it strange that a man who says that he could not bear to walk away and have the girl's death on his conscience, would molest a child. To me it seems that anyone who would molest a child is a monster without normal conscience. The article gives no details to the child molestation event. Perhaps he was wrongfully accused. There are a lot of psycho wives and ex-wives who frame their husbands. It's difficult to prove innocence if it involves a child too young to question. Many accept a plea deal (plead quilty = no jail time) to avoid the risk of a trial of her word against his. (man usually loses) If he is guilty of molesting a kid then I hope he is punished to the full extent regardless of his good deed though.”

“there's such thing as statutory rape, where a child is 17 and the male is over 18. In many states men are accused of rape. For this reason states like Massachusetts have brought down their age of consent to 16. It's obvious that this man around 30 had a relationship with a child over 15 and this is frowned upon for obvious reasons.”
“Not to mention the government is rounding up thousands of our publicly owned wild mustangs from our public lands (helicopter cowboys) creating a surplus of unadopted wild horses at tax-payer's expense. There are currently more wild horses in captivity (38,000) than there are in the wild. (29,000) which we pay for. This is a very bad thing for our wild mustangs which are an icon of freedom and symbol of heritage in the west. Fro more info http://www.wildhorsepreservation.org/”

“Those wild horses are an introduced species that are degrading the environment and driving out native animals and game. Get them OUT of there! If you want a symbol of the wild west, buy your own pinto pony, but get those mustangs off the ranges (and the cattle and sheep, too!).”

“$25,000???? And the woman who burned herself with McDonald's coffee a few years ago got millions?????? This woman deserves more plus the doctor's license to practice medicine”

“The McD's case was appealed down to $480,000 (of which the 'victim' got much less), however, this case is outrageous. The settlement 'offer' is $25,000 plus medical expenses for an injury that will leave her impaired for life and for which she had zero culpability. She's 53 and normally would expect to live for another 25 years or so.
On a follow-up note to the McD's case, the jury was told that McD coffee was much hotter than 'normal' coffee and that the purchasers should be warned, which was not true. They told the jury that homebrewed coffee is heated to about 135 degrees and McD coffee was heated to 190. I own a coffee farm and I can tell you that the correct brewing temp for coffee is between 190 and 205 degrees. At that temp, you release all the "flavor" while reducing bitterness. McD's coffee is actually properly prepared.”

“Thee is more to that woman and that McDonald Coffee case. She was award 2.5 million but that is not what she received. If you really want to know what that case was so widely publicized was all about, look at a documentary entitled "Hot Coffee", usually feature on HBO. That poor old lady did NOT want to suit McDonald after burning herself with HOT COFFEE, but McDonald's REFUSE to HELP pay her medical expense which was over 10 thousand dollars, so she sued and WON a settlement of 2.5 million. But because of a group of low life politicians used that case to fool the public in believing that there were too many frivolous lawsuits in this country, it get TORT REFORM passed in many states that were foolish to vote without knowing facts. It tuned out to be a campaign by U S Chambers of Commerce and politicians in office at the time to protect THE BIG TABACCO AND DRUG COMPANIES from paying out millions in lawsuit. As a result of "TORT REFORM" many Americas "CIVIL LIBERTIES" no longer exist. GUESS WHO THOSE POLITICIANS WERE ? LOOK AT THE DOCUMENTARY.”

“I've fought constant headaches all my life. Chiropractic and weekly massage help me a lot, but cost money. Stomache sleeping is my worst enemy - I guess I pinch a nerve. I sleep on my couch to prevent stomache sleeping position which has helped more than anything. I also use neck stretching and exercise daily. If I awaken with a headache, I place a tubular shaped pillow under my neck letting my head hang off and that will usually reduce from throbbing pain to manageable nuisance, then I take extremely hot shower letting the water run over my head, neck and shoulders. When all else fails, I take 3 Advil.”
“The government likes big, dumb, poor populations. More soldiers, more taxes. They give big tax breaks to lower income families with lots of kids. Each kid gets the family more government welfare and big tax breaks. The government taxes highly the families and singles with no children. It seems totally backwards until you look at it from the government's view. Simple fix: Give tax breaks to families with 0 - 2 children and tax the families with 3 or more children, but will never happen. That would be akin to publishing a cure for cancer or building a car that lasts forever.”
There is a disturbing theory about the human species that has begun to take on an alarming level of reality. It seems that the behavior of the human race is displaying uncanny parallels to the behavior of pathogenic, or disease-causing, organisms.
In fact, the human race is looking a lot like a disease-causing pathogen, which is an organism excessively multiplying, consuming, and producing harmful waste, with no regard for the health and well-being of its host - in this case, planet Earth....
If we succeed at continuing our dangerous behavior, we also succeed in marching straight toward our own demise. In the process, we can also drag many other species down with us, a dreadful syndrome that is already underway...
As humans become an increasing menace, can the Earth try to defend itself? Maybe. Number one is climate change, also known as global warming. When a disease organism infects a human being, for example, one of the defense mechanisms our body deploys is the elevation of its own temperature. This rise in temperature not only inhibits the growth of the infecting pathogen, but also greatly enhances the disease fighting capability within the body. Global warming may be the Earth's way of inducing a fever - as a reaction to human pollution of the atmosphere and human over-consumption of fossil fuels. Sound ludicrous? Don't laugh - read on.”
ivanivonovich on Oct 30, 2011 at 16:34:09
“The one thing about most pathogens is that they can survive without the host in a dormant stage for some time. I don't think the human race will be so fortunate.
As for the humans ability / inability to survive thru global warming, well, it may happen. Global warming is always portrayed as something bad. But look at the dinosaurs, they lived in a world much warmer than the one is now, & if not for an asteroid impact may have still been the dominant species on this planet. Think "WILD CARD".”

Here is a FACT, this whole "we're harming the earh and we have to stop before it's too late" is a fabrication. There are think tanks that have conjured up this nonsense, it is part of an agenda, an attempt to "unite" humanity against a common cause. As the population buys in to this, it just opens the door for them to shove the rest of their doctrine down our throats. It's part of a move toward a "global community" which just like the rest of their lies sounds great on ther outside but in truth, it lies at the heart of all evil. Look into some real facts please.
