Americans Would Rather Vote For A Philandering, Pot-Smoking President Than An Atheist One

“I am also an atheist, and I wish the atheist groups would try to project a more positive image. Too many atheists define themselves by their opposition to religion rather than by their love of intellectual curiosity and faith in humanity. But that's just my opinion.”

“Having kids mumble the Pledge of Allegiance serves what purpose? No matter what the words say, it doesn't make anyone more patriotic. The vast majority of kids don't give two seconds' thought to the words. It should be dropped altogether.”

“They are little dinosaurs! Jack Horner, the famous paleontologist, is actually attempting to reverse bioengineer a chicken into a dinochicken with teeth and a tail. I have one Silkie in my flock, and she is the funniest little doot-brain. So adorable. And you're so right about the roosters - unless you're out in the country, you'll probably run into neighbor problems if you've got a roo crowing all day. I loved my roo but couldn't keep him (had to find a pet home for him...).”

“Carol S. is correct. In fact, there was even an article recently in Scientific American about how intelligent chickens are. As a long-time owner of a small flock of beautiful pet chickens, I can tell you they're far smarter than you'd ever give them credit for. They are also affectionate, fun, productive, and interesting. We have dogs, cats, guinea pigs, an iguana, and rabbits, but of all of them, the chickens are my favorites.”

“To say nothing of the flow of dollars showered on this man. NPR (National Public Radio) recently did an excellent expose on where the money goes in these megachurches. It's pretty sickening. Billy Graham was about the only one who was totally upfront about the finances. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. You give these ambitious men power, adolation and the potential for millions of tax-free dollars, of course they'll say whatever pretty words they think will empty wallets. Do you honestly think this many believes any part of the religion he spews? He's a snake oil salesman, just like Swaggert and Baker and Falwell and Robertson.”

“No Labels, I'm wondering if you feel the same way about people who eat their way to diabetes and heart disease? Or folks who make the poor choice of going skiing and break a leg? One way or another, addicts will be a burden on society, so why not try to help them clean up and get back to work so they can contribute to our economy?”

“What about blood transfusions? Don't some fundie Christians object to those? So if you need surgery during which you'll need a blood transfusion, your employer can refuse to pay for it, selectively, making you suffer because of their beliefs? That's the bottom line - they should not be able to cause suffering. Unwanted pregnancy is definitely suffering. Not being able to get birth control that you need to regulate your periods is suffering. I took birth control when I was married because my husband and I could only afford two children. Unless Hobby Lobby wants to foot the bill for lots of unwanted kids, then they should behave like a business, not a church.”

“I'm a fan of coconut oil, but I doubt it's the oil that's doing anything for your mouth. I think it's just the fact that you're swishing fluid around your gums and teeth that would loosen any particles.I wouldn't encourage using this in place of flossing and brushing. On the other hand, I don't think oil pulling will do any harm.”

Candide33 on Mar 13, 2014 at 01:23:10

“I was thinking the same thing... anything that gets you to forcefully swish a liquid through the teeth for 20 minutes would help unless the liquid was corn syrup or something sugary.

Warm salt water might be just as good and cost even less but you would have to do it for 10 minutes or more to get all the stuff loose and exercise your face muscles.

I don't think most of us really brush long enough either.”

“Even if someone gets mental health help, it doesn't mean it's going to work. In fact, in my own experience, I've never seen anyone cured of anxiety or even depression, although symptoms may be lessened to the point where the person can carry on, which is better than nothing, of course. Many psychiatric meds have terrible side effects, especially when you try to get off them. Getting on them shouldn't be done casually. Don't expect counseling from a psychiatrist - they are just pill pushers now. The whole system needs a giant overhaul, but that would mean fighting Big Pharma and the APA.”

mama train on Mar 10, 2014 at 04:22:02

“People that suffer from depression and anxiety may not be able to look forward to a "cure" but they can learn to apply coping skills by learning to recognize the symptoms for what they are...symptoms. I've suffered from anxiety but learning the effect of the symptoms gives me the ability to apply healthy self talk and use my positive supports. I still suffer but not as frequently or as acutely. During a really bad episode...I know who I can talk to which makes all the difference.”

musettee on Mar 8, 2014 at 22:15:56

“I totally agree. As a holistic health professional I have rarely seen success with mainstream treatment of mental illness because it fails to treat the whole person. Drugs treat the symptom, not the problem.”
