“No, but he only says he's a Christian because that was the church he was forced to attend as a child. He associates church attendance to being a Christian with no actual belief. We went to church because my mom would take us out to lunch every Sunday as long as we attended. Church was a way to spend time with family and get a free meal. There were no religious convictions involved.”
“Maybe we are looking at this wrong; remember we are nothing more than animals. Most animals have periods where they bulk up in preparation for times when food will be scarce. Maybe something clicks as stress increases with time off work causing people to eat more.”
“"...while the CFPB couldn’t say how many borrowers have been affected, the agency has noted that since 2005, the majority of private student loans..."
Funny how I just knew this would have something to do with that 2001/2005 period of financial games. Did this one piggyback on the bankruptcy bill? How many more gotchas will be popping up in the future.”
“You gotta put your publicity stunt label on someone else. Many of the jobs out here are service sector lower wage offering little or no benefits, and I think of Horsford as the working man's representive. I was an unemployed, underemployed, and unemployment recipient much of the last decade and I think once you've been there you take note of a politicians ations. I admire his energy and dedication to this problem; he really gets out there.”

“if hes your representative and you like him then i love him but something always smells a lil fishy come election year and politicians start making their rounds”
“But, why the High fructose corn syrup? And, it's the second listed ingredient followed by wheat flour. Tomato soup is about as light as one can get, and though there are no problems with pronouncing the ingredients one can't help wonder about the ingredients. Perry's post points to an increase in consumers looking at the labels.”
“Reading this story I realized I still know people that benefited from the War on Poverty and sometimes I wonder why we don't go back and look at some of those programs of the 60s and early 70s. How many times have we heard we have plenty of jobs, but can't fill them because our workers don't have the skill. So, why aren't we creating a pathway to those skills? Over the years I worked with quite a few people that completed training programs or went to college, moving from welfare to jobs and we gained lifetime tax paying citizens.
In the 60s/70s companies had some incentive to become involved in those programs; they were limited to the work force they had, but today they can bring that skill in and often pay them less too. Still, we need to find some way to create a pathway forward for people here, because right now we are only increasing level poverty.”
“Oh, in this age of desperate job seekers, how about that having to sign a form agreeing to work till you drop. And, I just love that extra special touch when asked if employers could force workers into signing a form for it too. What's it going to take for the people in Wisconsin to wake up?”
“Oh, I remember the good old days too. Heck, 40 years ago I went shoe shopping for lunch and before lunch was over I'd found myself a better job. I left one good paying job for an even better paying job, and I wasn't even lookiing, but try that today.”
“Target cannot be blamed for the intial attack; however, their decision put consumers bank accounts at risk and that's a bit different than putting a credit card at risk. Target could have limited the exposure here, but they didn't do that.”
“I'm tempted to try the whisky ham recipe, but for years I've been using one from Tyler Florence, a bourbon and coke recipe. After doing that one no one wanted a Honey Baked ham anymore. The recipe here doesn't include a temp, but I cook ham to the 140 and it's absolutely pefect, and I do that even if just usiing a jar of jam for the glaze. It's really hard to go wrong with a smoked ham.”

“That does look like a good recipe I'm going to try it. The bourbon did it. Sounds delish.”
