“don't understand your sentence. what is 'nonsense'? if you were referring to ocrmom59's opinion, it is true that there are many illnesses/medicines that cause one to gain weight and not be able to lose it.”
“his parents were from Nigeria; he was born in England so his land is England. he would not have dared do this in Nigeria - his rantings would not have been tolerated there, his head would have been chopped off pronto.”
“they were not 'Brit raised,' they were raised by strict protesants.
every country, culture, and religion, has its own nutcases, no country is immune from crazies or their actions - timothy mcvay ring any bells - many violet acts were perpetrated by non-Muslims.”

“Actually from one article I read the creature's parents are Catholic. Be that as it may, he converted and was born and raised in the UK.”
“i think they wanted to kill the police who came to the scene and also be killed by the police to as to become martyrs for their cause which they called Islam, but it is NOT true Islam and they were NOT true Muslims.”

“I know. It can seem like the whole world has turned into hateful bigots, but many of us haven't fallen for that yet.
“terrorism is ANY act that terrifies - a nutcase, religious or not, screeching out his/her religious beliefs in the streets with a hachet IS terrifying, civilian or soldier. ALL violent acts are terrorist acts. All religions contain historical violence.”

“So, the US/UK are guilty of terrorist acts in the countries they have bombed and terrified women and children?”
“but what will fund the dept. of education? what do the student loan profits now fund, where do they end up?
I've always admired ms. warren and believe she will restore our faith in the government-for-the-people-by-the-people principle of the Constitution & accomplish great legislation for the USA. she definitely shows up all the other so-called politicians who have been there forever and never thought of this solution to the student loan problem? there should be report cards for us to rate senate/house politicians and have them removed from office on the basis of the results & there should definitely be term limits for both house/senate.”
“that's rediculous! individuals no matter how generous cannot possibly finance the budgets for foodstamps, school breakfasts/lunches, or healthcare for the poor and the working poor. nor can individual communities keep apace - they can help but there are just too many in need. that means local and federal governments have to step in, for some permanently - the disabled, including most importantly veterans, seniors - and some temporarily until they can find unemployment.”
“Why doesn't the General Welfare Clause extend to cover food and clothing in time of need? The genius of the Constitution is that it can be amended to keep up with society's changing needs. Nowadays we all don't have plots of land where we can grow our own food like you could at the time the government was 'designed' and 'payment in kind' was commonplace - i could 'pay' you with food in exchange for what i needed to 'buy' from you. Happened in the Depression too - will work for food - happens now, and will most probably happen again too.”
“Jesus fed the multitudes AFTER he preached to them - rather like today's congregations going to church on sundays and staying on for lunch/dinner afterward. breaking bread and conversing together enhances awareness of all the problems in your community and who knows, you just might be able to help someone.”
“who do you trust to do the distributing? the larger the group you have the more you can negotiate grocery discounts and lower prices. perhaps to help settle this problem we could check off on our 1040s which government program we want our taxes to go to. i would check off: foodstamps, WIC, veterans administration, healthcare, and job-creation programs.”
“what do you think taxes should be used for? and, if you are poor and hungry yourself you can only give a little of your food away -no point in two people starving to death. how would you choose who should eat and who should not? I want my taxes to feed those who can't work or who have lost their jobs (may be lost them temporarily or permanently) and provide healthcare to the sick so they can get well and try to find gainful employment, all for the general welfare. Government can feed many more people than can an individual, church/temple/mosque, or charity organization - the problem is just too big, and growing with more and more people losing their jobs.”
“Will you please list the healthy foods you can buy with $200/month (for three meals/day x 30av./month) and include the cost of cooking for (1) a single person & (2) a family of four, compared to an unhealthy meal = a hamburger & fries (water to drink) @, say, $5.00/fast food meal. Many people can't spare the time it would take to grocery shop and/or cook because they are rushing off to their second and/or third jobs to pay for other basic needs, like rent, clothing albeit buy second-hand clothing, and gas. of course the poor can't afford health care so that cost can't count here.
If you can, than please publish it so we can all enjoy eating healthy food.”
“This would completely depend on what their 'spiritual values' are - we are a diverse country whose peoples reflect different values. what resources - contributions to their political campaigns by the rich and corporations? Legislators should be making deliberations not on what is 'meaningful' to them personally or their solely on their own community's values (and what percent of their community elected them) when deciding federal laws, but on what is the best for our country as a whole, not just their own community, because we are a diverse country in regard to spirituality, religion, values, and we all subject to the same federal laws. For example, i am personally against abortion but i am also against anyone mandating my choice and would not condemn anyone else's choice - i do not walk in their shoes and nobody else walks in mine.”
“Actually no, not if it's the same one that spends hundreds of billions on miscellaneous stuff like tax cuts and saving the jobs of state and local government workers (again) but almost nothing that gets actual unemployed people into real jobs.
I want real action for the actual unemployed people.
If the ones who have been out of work since 2007-2011 don't get a job during Obama's second term, when in God's name will they?
The private employers don't want to touch them. We need direct hiring and huge subsidies from the federal government, unfortunately, to bribe employers to take them on. But it is an expensive investment that justifies the cost. Once these millions of people have a new job on their resume, they will be acceptable to private employers again. ”
“SOME PEOPLE CAN'T AFFORD BIRTH CONTROL - IT's EXPENSIVE & NOT AN OPTION WHEN THE LITTLE MONEY YOU HAVE IS NEEDED TO FEED YOURSELF, OR YOUR HUNGRY FAMILY. THOSE WITH NO RECOURSE - THOSE WHO ARE RAPED, SINGLE MOTHERS WHO WERE ABANDONED BY THEIR BOYFRIENDS/HUSBANDS, & THOSE WHOSE RELIGIOUS/MORAL BELIEFS FORBID ABORTION, THEY ALL HAVE 'NO EXCUSE' FOR HAVING AN UNWANTED PREGNANCY - WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO, STARVE TO DEATH? Republicans are the ones raging against birth control and the low-cost planned parenthood organization's clinics which help poor parents with planning when to have, or how not to, have a family and helping them through unwanted pregnancies.”

“There are ppl who get assistance who continue to have children. U can't feed urself or what u already have why are u having more kids for the tax payer to feed? There are free clinics where u can planned parenthood. If u feel like u can have as many kidd that u want because of belief etc then the government has s right to cut u off. Its not their problem, its urs your making that choice.”

“There are alot of circumstances. Birth control is not hard to get. You still make the choice to bring life into the world. Somebody makes that choice. However, under normal circumstances, you are responsible for ur kids. Why do you think the government should take care of u and urs because of religious belief or u don't use protection? That's a entirely different issue. If u need it u shld get it but not because of irresponsibilty”
