“Sorry Joe, you're wrong - these states and many others have been aware of the precarious water situation not only in their own states but IN THE WORLD for a great long time. What have they done about it? I mean besides steal water from other states, fracking, factory farming, bottled water plants, nuclear power plants, clear cutting trees, massive pollution?

“...continuing my record of never having watched any "reality" shows ever. But I do find it interesting that so many people apparently find this kind of thing entertaining.”

“I'm with you. I refuse to have anything to do with reality programming. It's ridiculous and dumb.”

“There are no such thinkgs as 'reality shows'. On ever set there is a director (s), camera crew, script writers, editors and of course, actors (as poor as they are at the job).
It is too bad that so many people have nothing more in their lives than to look forward to the next dircted/scripted reality show. Very pathetic.”

“Me neither! Isn't it great? It is sad though that you can't help but know about them because this is what passes for 'news' these days.”
“You mean why YOU fell for the barefoot shoes scam. The first time I read one of their ads I nearly spewed my coffee all over the keyboard - wow, The Onion is at it again! People will defend their choices after spending their hard-earned money on marketing ploys simply because of one unalterable fact: The power of suggestion is unassailable, the more expensive it is, the more likely it is "true," that in spite of the knowledge that driving a brand-new car off the show-room floor is one of the dumbest moves any person can make in their life, millions of people still do it. That canned new car smell is worth thousands apparently. Now, walk into any grocery store and try to find something that doesn't say "gluten free" on it even though the people who perpetrated that hoax have already admitted it is B.S.”

“I've spent half of my life barefoot.
I believe the claims and still do. What I learned though is that someone can't just drop wearing shoes and go barefoot and expect to get the benefits that I have after half a lifetime without shoes.”
“I believe you've hit the nail squarely on the head. Today's jeans are nothing like they used to be - they are thin and cheap, but I note Levi is charging even more for these made Out Of America jeans that they are paying WAY less to have made.”
“Somebody needs to stomp all over Sallie Mae with a steel boot. What they are doing needs to be punishable with some very serious jail time. Do some research re machinations between bush and the head of SM - enlightening.”
“Well, I'm not an icon, but I've been signing petitions and making phone calls for weeks now to get this guy Boggs out of consideration for this post, and I am just one of legions. Boggs is no good for this country and should not be confirmed EVER!”
“Another billion dollar fad for the food industry. The very same "scientists" who got almost everyone off gluten are now admitting it's all bullsh*t. Too bad they didn't do it to sugar - now that's the most highly addictive drug in history - get off that and you'll be doing something.”

“What a bizarre statement. Do you understand the difference between a "scientist" and a "celebrity chef"? Pollan is trying to sell a book and keep his sponsors happy.
Wheat is more addictive than sugar. Clearly you are in denial.”

“Could you give names of scientists who say it is BS? I haven't heard that.”

“I haven't read of any scientists saying celiac disease or a sensitivity to gluten is bulls**t. Sugar is bad, salt may be worse and Americans eat way too much of both...but neither of those things give me digestive problems like eating foods with gluten in them do.”
