“As it has unfolded we can see that Ms Fluke has no principles - she is not in dire financial circumstances. She could easily afford to pay for contraception. Also they're available in many places free. Which Ms fluke is surely well aware of since she's been an activist for women's rights for some time. Perhaps evena paid activist.
It's long past time to put this affair out of it's misery. It was only ever designed to get sharp responses from the GOP - which they're not smart enough to cut off.”
“Don't think so. What is ACA anyway? American Cheerleaders/Cornhole/Canoe/ Cichlid Association?”

“The ACA (Affordable Care Act) is the most significant piece of legislation to be signed into law thus far during President Obama's first term. People with the emotional and intellectual maturity of a fifth grader on the school playground like to call it "Obamacare". That name, however, makes little to no sense on account of the fact that it was the product of Congressional negotiations that the President was largely absent from. He was, however, more than happy to sign it as it did accomplish many of his stated goals regarding healthcare he did play a significant roll at the end of the process in settling the differences between the house and the Senate in a way that the bill could receive 60 votes in the Senate and a majority in the House.
The length of the bill (2000 pages) was an issue for those who were not that familiar with either legislation or, apparently, reading.”
“WOW, what a vocabulary! And never say in 50 words what you can say in a couple of hundred. But you should register as a Democratic spokesman or mouthpiece. Speaking of failed policies, what about that Barack Obama?”

“Are you one of the folks that complained about the length of the ACA?”
“How are you so sure? Have you met the man? He is so open and artless, I doubt he's descended to the levels of our favorite pokiticians, business executives and media stars. Of course he's had to make hard choices which often bruise more delicate souls, but all-in-all Ithink he's an extraordinarily honest man, and a very good selection as Cardinal.”

“Wake up! Rolex is protecting their name because they have to. If they let this one slide we'd have Rolex massage parlors, Rolex limousine services, maybe even Rolex mortuaries for those who want to go in style. After all they own the name.”
“You don't know enough about the situation to say that. Maybe the driver was distraught and could see that Mr Rosen was better equipped to deal withe the children. It's not healthy to always be thinking the worst of people and their motives.
God bless and keep Mr Rosen.”

“Thanks for caring about my health! Love ya! A few seconds after I posted my comment, I wrote" I hope I read it wrong", which I did.. Being quick to tell someone how they think isn't healthy. I'm only telling you this because I care about you as much as you care about me.”

“First, please note who wrote the article - a coordinator from an anti-toxic stuff state organization. where I come from a coordinator is a lackey who does what they're told (she's probably trying to gain points for her next promotion).
Second, how many of us use or wear toxic chemicals or suspicious stuff regularly? Hair dye? Artificial sweeteners? Fake fat or oil (Pam)? Nail polish? Most of us I'll bet.
Checked with a couple of bird owners - never had a problem in a population of thirteen birds.”

“For many years, I managed a large pet store that specialized in birds. I know of many instances wherein my customer's feathered friends died because "their sister burned something in the non-stick pan" or "Grandma left the teflon coated iron on, which burned a hole through the clothing and even scorched the teflon coated ironing board cover..." And then there's the time that a member of the local Parrot Society used the "Self-Clean" operation on her new oven... This poor woman lost many of her feathered children that day...mind you, she had called the manufacturer prior to use to see if there would be any danger to her birds and was told it was all right to use around the birds... PTFE is used on many surfaces. As for me, I'll stick to my cast iron pans and cleaning the oven with a sponge... Its healthier for my birds and me!”
“What's your problem? Admit it, you love pissing on someone else's pleasure and joy.
As for Miss Day, she has been dissed for too long by Hollywod. She kept Hollywood alive forat least two years in the 50's/60's with her music and movies. At the time most producers/directors couldn't find their butts with both hands. Still, thet refuse to award her a Lifetime Achievement Award.”

“get a grip, Sporto.... my previous comment didn't offer up any criticism of Doris Day or diss the record -- on the contrary I pointed out it's appeal....a few of the previously posted comments made reference to how good she sounds at age 88, and all I did was point out that the new album wasn't recorded last week.... sounds like you have a knot in your panties -- maybe its time to take that old Calamity Jane movie poster down off your bathroom wall and move onto to something more contemporary to "pleasure" yourself to....”

“Oh yeah? I use the self-check lane every time I shop for a few items. I've learnd the UPC codes. I chat with the attendants, who are mostly experienced employees. And I've noticed young people make some major screw-ups shutting down the computers by trying to input their parents's frequent shopper number after they've inserted a 20 dollar bill face down. Ha!”
“The reality it simply this, you don't have to believe him...whether s/he believes it or not; it is simply a matter of one's own personal experience or belief.
I've never seen an "alien" UFO before, however, I have seen several "UFO"s.
I do believe that there is a more-than-likely chance of intelligent life in the universe, and even possibly in our own galaxy, other than our own planet.
However, I am not yet convinced that any so-called real alien "UFO" has been caught on film; from the majority of films and videos that I've seen, I too am not yet convinced of there existence.
Hoaxsters often use cheap tricks, and OTC technology to create their illusions. If it seems to good to believe, it probably is.
However, only when a mass crowd sees something that is so spectacular and seemingly unimaginable to believe; that it universally defies logic and belief, or the physics of our current understanding, only then will I truly take a closer look at the phenomenon with more scrutiny.
However, like many, I too want to believe. But this is obviously going to take some time.”
“Just whom do you think funds the Democrats? Doesn't Obama get a lot of $ from lobbyists? Why is he on tv so much these days? ...cause he knows the tea party message resonates with a lot of folks outside the beltway and he has to create more smoke & lies to try and offset it.
I really don't think he lies more than the GOP, but he commands/demands a bigger stage to do it.
My greatest wish is that both parties find a statesman or guru who can point the way to an honest solution.
CNN, Fox, Murdoch; who cares? If you can't make up your mind for yourselves they are pretty poor excuses for sources of info.”

“"...“Why,” I asked Hitler, “do you call yourself a National Socialist, since your party programme is the very antithesis of that commonly accredited to socialism?”
“Socialism,” he retorted, putting down his cup of tea, pugnaciously, “is the science of dealing with the common weal. Communism is not Socialism. Marxism is not Socialism. The Marxians have stolen the term and confused its meaning. I shall take Socialism away from the Socialists.
“Socialism is an ancient Aryan, Germanic institution. Our German ancestors held certain lands in common. They cultivated the idea of the common weal. Marxism has no right to disguise itself as socialism. Socialism, unlike Marxism, does not repudiate private property. Unlike Marxism, it involves no negation of personality, and unlike Marxism, it is patriotic..."”

“You didn't read the story very carefully. Also, Hitler believed that socialism was a right-wing ideology and was identical to nationalism. Hence : national socialism”

“Right, Hitler's party were socialists the same way North Korea is a republic.”
