“It's standard practice of any pharmacy to fill the generic if they can. The margins are better on generics than brand.
Walgreens may have higher prices, but at least they don't sell stuff BELOW cost which should be an antitrust violation. Walmart has put local stores (grocery and pharmacy) out of business with this tactic. Add to that their practice of squeezing every last drop out of their suppliers - that cost cutting has to be made up somewhere. You have to wonder how many vendors ship manufacturing overseas to align their business with Walmart's purchasing demands.
There's more to shopping smart than just low prices.”
“We are pretty much the last country where the citizens have the right to bear arms.
Once that's gone, we're toast - we get a certain future as slaves to the elite.
The rest of the bill of rights has been thoroughly trashed and the 2nd is one of the most intact rights. It's as important as the first. Without the deterrent of last resort, all our other rights can and will be ignored.
People should drop their politics and become constitutionists - then we can all be on a DHS list.”

“please spare us your "gun" argument.you've already surrendered by having one.you are already a "slave" to the gun lobby sprouting their propaganda.I doubt you have ever read the 2nd amendment thoroughly.”

“That's hilarious. Despite all the guns and tough talk when the crunch comes you will all rollover. America is less free than the "patriots" would have you believe compared to other nations. The guns are a drug that feed the illusion of freedom and keep you pacified.”
“Wow, the investigators were sure eager to make it clear these two acted alone, case closed.
Please ignore the Saudi citizen with family ties to terrorism we snuck out of the country. Also, please ignore the fact that the FBI had been in contact with these two since 2011.
Question nothing, just fork over your freedoms in exchange for the illusion of safety.
lets see what stupid laws get proposed and passed after this. I'm sick of this predictable pattern that most Americans fail to see because of endless distractions like DWTS and other brain numbing garbage including MSM news itself.”

“You actually think the FBI is going to take his word for it...are YOU kidding me!”
“Ban hi-cpacity gore and assault-offender sketches!
Think of God's children!
Nope, don't see it happening. We are protected from free speech restrictions in our little cramped free speech zones. Just remember, when the secret service shows up, scurry to your free speech zones before opening your mouth!”
“Yea, basic rights of these detainees is being ignored and it needs to be sorted out.
Where's the outrage for all that's being ignored in the Bill of Rights for citizens and many of our laws?
Patriot act, free speech zones (more like free speech violation), NDAA (ignores due process), training exercises with foreign military (Russia) on OUR SOIL, military training exercises civilian areas (Posse Comitatus violation), and the most common ones are "check points" which toss out concept of probable cause.
It's a slow creep to conditioning Americans to less and less freedom.
You don't need a "tin foil hat" to realize what's happening in this country.”
Perfect tool for dealing with an administration lacking in transparency - just like the Bush administration.
I'd like to know what the heck went down in Benghazi and what was going on in the administration at the time. It's our right to know.
I don't sit in line to vote for people who think they have justification to operate in secret while claiming to represent the American people. The two are not compatible.”

“Benghazi has too much CIA issues to be 'transparent'. Was someone war profiting? Was someone misleading the public to manipulate Foreign Policy? Get a grip Dem-haters. This is not Cheney-style antics coming to light. This is taking place post-Mubarak Egypt -for @$#-sake.”

“Hagel had nothing to do with Benghazi. He was a private citizen when that happened. What happened in Benghazi was simple, some of the one billion Islamist who hate us killed four Americans. What we ought to be doing is putting Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and all the others who lied and purposely took us into a war that got tens of thousands of Americans killed not four.”

That information is readily available. There have been exhaustive reports and investigations. You and the other baggers like you just refuse to accept reality.”

“Have you been paying attention to the hearings? Did you bother to read the ARB report? No. you fail to educate yourself and then come on HP and whine about not knowing.”
“Re-read Heller....PLEASE. If you read it properly and understand WHAT guns they were talking about you'd understand.
They never talked about semi-auto military style weapons. They mentioned M16s and Machine guns as being "dangerous and unusual". Both are FULLY AUTOMATIC.
AR-15s are neither unusual (very popular) or anymore dangerous than other semi-auto rifles. They are certainly NOT automatic.
The tank analogy doesn't work, citizens don't own tanks. Citizens own TONS of AR-15s and the guns are the least used for murders - the push to ban them is simply unjustified and stupid.”
cheforacle on Feb 14, 2013 at 13:32:16
“Dude, I have represented defendants charged with illegal transfer of semi-automatic weapons in federal court years ago so spare me the lecture. The key is that any legislation banning automatic weapons be properly worded which, IMHO, the last one in the 90s was not. I haven't read the language in Feinstein's bill so I cannot comment. As to Heller, the mention of machine guns and M-16s did not mean that other types of weapons could not be banned consistent with the 2nd Amendment.”
“It's the kind of thing humans will resort to when they don't have power and their government does (in this case, guns are the last word the Chinese government chooses). It's an act of hopeless desperation.
Major protests in China never work out well for the citizens.
If the United Stated government tried to shoot up protesters to the degree that China does, there would be a full on revolution - unless they can disarm the country and THEN abuse the heck out of us.
The 2nd amendment is the most difficult to abuse - it ultimately requires confiscation to eliminate it. All our other rights, on the other hand, are easy to trample. Free speech is being trampled, right to privacy, and due process. Obama discussed how he'd like to abuse due process in his State of the Union address with his "extended detention" (really means indefinite) pitch. This is the man who criticized Bush for Guantanamo and now he's going beyond Bush's disrespect for our rights.
There is no difference between these politicians that get "elected" to the White House. If Romney had been elected, he'd be giving a speech about how we need indefinite detention and an "assault rifle" ban too. They are puppets.
There are people behind our politicians who hold their strings and they most definitely want the kind of control over Americans that the Chinese government enjoys over theirs.”
“There you go, still ignoring the basic problem with banning military style weapons , they simply DO NOT kill as many people as ANY other type of gun.
That's the problem, it's like banning samurai swords - they can be used to kill people, but kitchen knives will take far more lives.
In the case of assault rifles, they kill less than any other gun despite being VERY popular - there are millions of them, yet they are the last choice of psychopaths for murder. Maybe it has something to do with MOST of them belonging to law abiding Americans?
A ban defies logic and is simply unconstitutional.”
cheforacle on Feb 14, 2013 at 10:48:55
“Your argument that it is simply unconstitutional belies the dictum of DC v. Heller. The fact there is no case that has ever made such a holding more directly undermines your argument. Just because one instrumentality kills less than another does not mean the ban should not be enacted. Fire from a tank has not killed anybody in this country in years; that does not mean we should not ban a tank or many other types of weaponry from being possessed by citizens.”
Nickskitz88 on Feb 14, 2013 at 10:45:24
“Assault rifles makes up only 3% of the guns in public hands. Get your facts straight. And you're right, banning assault rifles won't be enough, but your country isn't sane enough or brave enough to take the necessary corrective action.”
