“'Cut back to one conflict'?? I should hope the goal is the cut back to No conflicts. When did Romney decide two wars are the desired number? One's too much.”

Prince Charles' Craziest Ties Of 2011 (PHOTOS)

“Jessica, aren't a lot of those "old school" ties? some of the most classic ties for many decades, whyever do you think they're particularly outre? Reporting is more than assembling a slideshow that does nothing much but generate clicks. I think, given how obviously wrong your work is here, I'm done clicking on slideshows-- and Arianna, content's getting shallower and less useful all the time.”

Rick Scott: Florida Suing Federal Government Over Voter Purge

“Florida isn't defying the federal government, Rick Scott is. Rick Scott is a radical, not a mainstream governor. Even my 92 year old mother very seriously regrets voting for him.”

Patriotic Woman on Jun 12, 2012 at 08:02:26

“and what the heck was she thinking when she DID vote for him?? I mean, really. I cannot find anyone who voted for Scott who is glad they did---but why in the first place?

figure that one out and don't repeat the same ugly mistake.”

“I think Apple's finally recognizing their older customer base because that's who's most likely to have savings, cash-- and most of us must live on credit or savings now. And Jason, I'm not the only one who's going to object to your labeling a person with more years somehow unable to be cool, that's very uncool of you.”

“Yes you would. Not just because employment's hard to come by these days, but Apple treats their people better than any company I've seen since the 1950s. God help you if you're late to work, but the benefits, the pay, the stock, the extras are amazing. Not to mention the every-changing tshirts. And I say this though I'm very disappointed in one of their products right now.”

“"can't be forced to undergo the procedure"? but CAN be forced to NOT undergo the procedure, what a delicate distinction. Can be forced to speak specific phrases, can't be forced to stop blathering idiotic, uninvited nonsense at people going about their very, very personal private business.”

“They love this 'dumpling boy' down here, giant signs & expensive ads for a couple years in advance, the money behind him's amazing. He's so 'clean and presentable, as I hear it. In this county, 91% of registered Republicans voted in last presidential election, 67% of those (willing to be) registered as democrats. 91% approaches Palm Beach levels of incredulity but that's the official tally. Such a smooth election that county supervisor or elections got promoted. So I don't expect a rational result in my lifetime anymore, but folks, carping isn't it, turnout is the only thing between us and labor camps for the unrepentant, turnout so big it cannot be stuffed away down Florida's virtual version of Ballot Box 13.”

“I've asked politi fact if they'd be able to check this statement because I'm having a hard time believing in millions of double voting snowbirds. Don't know if Politi-Fact will bother with a commentor's veracity, but it is a 'local issue' and they are here in St. Pete. Residency ID's aside, In 20 years as a Floridian, it's been my experience that snowbirds are overwhelmingly straightlaced and moral, to a boring and tedious fault. I'm on Gulf Coast-- perhaps there's a different kind of winter visitors' culture on the "other coast"-- are you in Miami, H. Paisen? but really? millions?”

“Why are a person's health costs still a matter of insurance?! Insurance is betting, is it not? We're taking a bet that we'll need to buy a lot of health care before we die, and the carrier's betting we'll die before we spend much on staying alive. That's it, isn't it? But health-care and life span have changed so much, not even remotely the same game as when health insurance became a widespread product to sell. Even dropping dead while getting hit by a bus can generate incredible medical bills now. There will be huge medical costs in an American's life, what's the % that's not going to happen?”
