John Boehner: Eric Shinseki's Resignation 'Changes Nothing'

“Interesting how our politicians continue to demand that department heads resign when something goes wrong. Too bad our politicians aren't forced to resign when they screw up!”

“Here's an idea. Let the fast food corporations "give" their businesses to their workers in a profit-sharing scheme and then start paying new workers $20 an hour for part-time, no-benefit positions. See how THEY like that!”

“Critics who can't pull it off simply find fault with those who can. Bottom line: Beautiful women can wear anything and make it look good.”

“Why do we hold actors in such high esteem? They are professional clowns paid to be funny, act tough, be "all that" thanks entirely to good scriptwriting. On a personal level most are numb as hammers. Acting doesn't make you an expert on politics, foreign policy or morality. It's JUST acting.”

“Fast food outlets replaced ice-cream parlors and diners where people went for a milkshake or a piece of pie. These jobs were never meant to provide lifetime careers. Funny how people with nothing to offer demand more for themselves. Want a good-paying job? Get an education and earn it!”

“All this talk and no action. I don't see how talk shows survive - they have no impact and make no difference. People listen, laugh and move on. What's the point other than mindless entertainment?”

“It definitely went way overboard this year. Mother's "Day" turned into Mother's "Week." Leave it to retailers to take advantage of (and screw up) a nice, simple, family holiday. $20 billion spent on Mother's Day alone? That's 100 times more than all the walks, runs, bike runs and doorstep charities collect for various causes all year! We also spent $8 billion on Halloween, $16 billion on Easter and $450 billion on Christmas. What would we have spent if the economy were booming? She's right - it's all crazy!”

“I can't stand Lauer's "Yes, but don't you think . . ." brand of interviewing. He keeps trying to start something, dig something up or reveal something that's not even there. When did reporting the news become an interrogation, an on-air court trial? Stop trying to get a jump on the news and just report the facts! Sadly, Savannah is the same way. Dump them, get Katie and Ann Curry back.”

“No one truly controls the money they invest. It goes where it goes and every investment is suspect. The reason you invest is to make more money while doing absolutely nothing. If you want a perfect world hop on the shuttle to Mars - this one is ruined.”

“Every murderer should have to go through this. Excellent! It's criminal to put these animals to sleep when they did such horrific things to their helpless victims. If you think they deserve better sign up and adopt a death row inmate of your very own - and YOU take responsibility for his actions.”

“Every man in Jerusalem had long, curly hair, a beard and waved their hands in the air over everything that move. This one just HAS to be Jesus.

“All that wealth and fat, happy bishops parading around the Vatican while "believers" are starving worldwide. Interesting system they have. I think the Buddhists have the right idea. Don your robes, grab your begging cup and spread the word in the humblest of ways. The value of diamonds and designer clothes crammed into the Vatican yesterday could feed a country!”

“No peril? I guess you haven't watched the news in the last 50 years or so. Self defense is not rocket science: If your life is in danger you may defend yourself. If you want to sit there and take it, go ahead. That is your right as well. I prefer to keep my gun loaded and my options open.”

“Yeah, stop badgering interviewees into giving the answers YOU want. And, fess up to breaking the law on national TV by waving illegal AR magazines around while braying at Wayne LaPierre about needing MORE gun laws when YOU sat there breaking laws already in existence - which was exactly the NRA's point. AND the DC DA "chose" not to prosecute YOU for breaking the law. THAT's why more laws won't work - we don't enforce the ones we have.”

“If pot is a "benign" substance and is "not addicting" why is it that no one seems able to give it up? I quit when it went up to $10 an ounce! If I had a nickel for every time I heard, "Oh, wow," I'd be rich!”

“Yeah, but what if the Buddhists are right and instead of going to heaven (which they don't believe exists) he comes back as a mentally ill gun-toting criminal? Or a pit bull? Or a knife-wielding teenager?”

“Pari nirvana is similar to heaven.

Found on a web site:

The Buddha described Nirvana as the ultimate goal, and he reached that state during his enlightenment. At this point, he chose to teach others so that they might also experience this realization, and so when he died, forty-five years later, he then passed through pari nirvana, meaning completed nirvana.

Nirvana literally means extinguishing or unbinding. The implication is that it is freedom from what ever binds you, from the burning passion of desire, jealousy, and ignorance. Once these are totally overcome, a state of bliss is achieved, and there is no longer the need the cycle of birth and death. All karmic debts are settled.”

“Ever heard the expression, the "doubing Thomas?" Thomas was one of Christ's apostles who, after Jesus was crucified and His body disappeared from the tomb, doubted His resurrection. He even said, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” (You can Google John 20:24-30)

When Jesus appeared to Thomas, he made a statement which applies to any believer in Christ and serves as a reminder to the world: “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29)”

“Can he GUARANTEE there will never, ever be another violent crime in America? Laws, money and perky moms (you know, like the one who drove her kids into the ocean) can't stop human behavior, and more new criminals come along with every generation. Have Bloomberg visit the jails, state and federal prisons and try to sell CRIMINALS on the idea of being good. The rest of us already get it. Why blame law-abiding citizens for what the law breakers do?”

Randall Stevens Was Here on Apr 16, 2014 at 10:49:59

“The blame for violent gun crime falls squarely on irresponsible, careless, trigger-happy, gun owners.
