“I didn't read all of the comments, but your comment is the only one I saw that addressed what I thought - why doesn't the body of the plane, etc., fill the role of the plastic bag? I'm more surprised that the article and story didn't address it. No, I guess I'm not - HP "journalism"”

“swizzlestics, you got it right regarding negative ads! While I wish all candidates would stick to what they've done and plan to do in terms of issues in their ads, there's nothing wrong with an adult enjoying a drink and joking about it AND I'm not totally sure it should be a disqualifier for an available adult to "hit" on strippers. Those negatives don't belong in the discussion. But if you have to pay back money that wasn't yours and that you wasted, there is an awfully strong case to be made that there is nothing wrong with reminding voters of that. THAT is not a negarive ad.”

“Sounds to me like you're trying to blame Gov. Romney for an attempt to do a good thing - at least in the minds of both the Bush and Obama administrations - that didn't work out. Not everything works out (after the debate last night, the results from President Obama's "Green Energy" projects spring to mind). Doesn't mean things shouldn't be tried. The mistake is to forget that sometimes you can learn as much - if not more - from the failures.”

“moneyman, I replied to your comment quite some time ago, but the HP censors don't seem to be letting it through - OK, let's try again - You mean Averell Harriman, advisor to every democratic president from FDR through LBJ? Let's get real here - it's a class thing. The Roosevelts, the Kennedys, the Bushes, all - all - came from the same background. Joe Kennedy, Sr., who got booted as FDR's ambassador to the Court of St. James (England) for exactly the same issue you seem to blame Prescott Bush on. Bet you don't hang that on JFK! The Roosevelts, the Kennedys, the Bushes, etc. went on to serve their country! There is a ruling class in the U.S. - they all belonged to it and, to quote a famous newsman, "so it goes". I'm originally from Connecticut. We elected PB once and then Abe Ribicoff beat him. Well, maybe it was Tom Dodd - that was all so long ago that it's even history to me. You know, Chris Dodd's dad. Who got censured by the Senate run by his own party - it happens.”

“Correct 1066, Senator Prescott Bush ( HW's father ) was a lock jaw Republican from Connecticut. He was also a partner in a Boston private bank, called Brown Brothers and Harriman ( as in Avril Harriman of Railroad ownership fame ) P. Bush started out supporting Hitler until that was no longer possible, so now you know.”

“Failure to recognize sarcasm is an early sign of altzheimers. Just sayin'
None of them took back, reversed what they said. It just all sort of went away when he was - as is totally appropriate for a general - working for President Obama, not President Bush. Takes the suspension of disbelief to not see the hypocracy in it.”

“I might add, my early altzheimers not withstanding, he is, clearly, not a politician. Clearly, his guiding motivation has been Service to the Nation. I, like many Americans, thank my lucky stars for that! You are correct, a lot of politicians are not as motivated by Patriotism and the notion of Service (or, taking back what they once said in the heat of expedient politics).”

“That's because the "humor" had nothing to do with the roastee on the Martin roasts. It's fairly obvious that the Comedy Central Roast comedians don't necessarily know the roastee personally, but at least the (yes, mean and obscene) jokes usually have something to do with the subject. The Martin roast jokes could have been computer generated and aimed at absolutely anyone.”

“Driving north from Florida, we stopped at a Chick-Fil-A (granted, it was in Georgia) - I've never seen such a packed fast food place. I've always like the food at their stores and that was why we stopped. The other places at the exit were busy, this place was PACKED. Staff outside directing traffic, double lines of cars around the building for parking places and for the drive thru. Long lines inside - no pushing, no shoving, everyone happy. This whole thing is a tempest in a teapot - I support same-sex marriage (however you call it) but maybe there is a reason that, when it is put to a vote by the people instead of the politicians, it loses.”

Don1Carter on Jul 31, 2012 at 22:17:50

“FYI....I well publicized survey last year showed that a majority of Republicans in Mississippi still believe that interracial marriages should be illegal. Yes, there is a reason same gender marriages is voted down. The reason is ingrained bigotry.”

“Yes, when the issue is put to the vote it usually loses. It's called Tyranny of the Majority. We have a constitution that is set up to protect us from that. At one time the majority would have voted to keep people as slaves. At one time the majority denied women the right to vote and own property. At one time the majority made interracial marriage illegal. That's how the Majority voted, but they were wrong, and these laws were overturned. Some day the same thing will happen with same-sex marriage.”

“The death penalty repeal excludes those already on death row - including both of these guys. Connecticut didn't have a death penalty for many, many years. Then we got it back, took care of Ross - who also very much deserved it - and got rid of it again, but not before these two were sentenced. I don't have much use for Malloy, either, but he hasn't been in office long enough to take the blame for Connecticut's deficit and tax situations. He was preceded by Republicans (one of whom is in jail at the moment) and who are just as much to blame as the - always - Democratic legislature, who write the tax and spend laws.”

“The Chief Justice is exactly right. It isn't the Court's job to judge the fairness, desireability, morality, or any other issue regarding cases presented to it. They rule on the constitutionality of the law involved - that's all. Not all that many years ago, it was the right complaining about the left-wing activism of the Court. Now, the lefties are the ones who always complain of the "political" rulings of the Court. This case shows that the Supreme Court can do what it's Constitutional duty consists of: Interpret the law within the framework of The Constitution of the United States. Don't like the law? Get it changed within that same framework.”

“I haven't read that far in the comments yet, but I've got to say that making this distinction between our organized religions and the idea of God is excellent. Our idea of God is, as Heinlein said, "“The most preposterous notion that Homo sapiens has ever dreamed up is that the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history.” But that is organized religion. God is an entirely different matter. Good work pwright3571!”
