Here's Everything You Need To Know About Bowe Bergdahl, The U.S. Captive Returning Home

Here's Everything You Need To Know About Bowe Bergdahl, The U.S. Captive Returning Home

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 18:06:57 in Politics

“I know a hell of a lot! It's just that any story involving our government is always the same. No matter what was done, there are complaints. Like I said, if we had been told he was put to death, all of the posts would have condemned the government for not getting him out. You must not read many of these posts.”

“Same old story. No matter what was done, people will complain that it was wrong. Had we left him there and received word that he was killed by his captors, that would have been wrong, too! Damned if you do, damned if you don't.”

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

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

Commented May 30, 2014 at 15:41:36 in Politics

“Boehner needs to have a short meeting with the President, then come out and offer HIS resignation. The President never said the resignation would fix the problem. He just agreed with what Shinseki said, "felt that new leadership would serve our veterans best...". An interrim leader was put in place and people are working on the problem. It didn't happen over night and the solution will not happen overnight. They are working toward the solution and that is a step in the right direction. Boehner....Please resign!”
Texas Bar Criticized For Posting Domestic Violence 'Joke'

Texas Bar Criticized For Posting Domestic Violence 'Joke'

Commented May 28, 2014 at 12:23:42 in Business

“Now, a stand-up comedian could make the same joke and the audience would cheer and laugh. No one would make him take it out of his routine. I think the joke was just the play on words. I don't believe the person who wrote it intended to say they thought acutal domestic violence was a joke. That is one of the problems I can't stand in the PC world. No sense of humor! If she found the play on words offensive, I am sure there were other bars in town that would not offend.”

MoeB on May 28, 2014 at 13:28:19

“This idea that unless you find the most vulgar things (not suggesting this particular "joke" qualifies) hilarious means you don't have a sense of humor is ironic...and kinda funny at the same time.

And when was this magical time that were were NOT a "PC" nation? I'd argue we get away with FAR more now than, say, 50 years ago (in terms of jokes...I suppose if you're one of those old schoolers who miss the days of being able to openly shout racial slurs and sexist remarks to women in public that we are a bit too "PC").

It was a crass joke. I get it, however...but I probably would've brought it to the bartender's attention as well. I wouldn't have taken pics and did a Facebook rant, but I know women who've been victims of domestic abuse...one recently. I'd hate for her to go out, see such a sign, and be immediately brought back to that past reality.

It's not too much to ask that you keep your bar signs both creative, funny, and NOT crass or offensive.

Last, unless the person who wrote that was ALSO a comedian, I don't see how that analogy applies.”

“Our Pit Bull Princess was rescued from the neighbor's basement when they moved out of state and left her there, in the empty house, with one of her puppies and no food or water. We found a good home for the pup and she has filled out fine and is the sweetest thing on earth. It is all about how they are raised and loved in your home. We also made sure she would not have any more puppies.”

“Why is it that when anyone captures a UFO, Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, etc. on video it is always grainy and jumpy? Even when you watch the Big Foot hunters show on TV, the daytime video of the cast is clear, the night vision video is clear, then they show the Big Foot. It is grainy, blurred & jerky.

“I am a member of this church and paying tithing or any kind of contribution is not manditory. Members do it voluntarily and to it with faith that they will be blessed. They have the freedom of choice. Believing the doctrines of the church is something all members do voluntarily and with faith. At any time, we can stop believing, we can leave the church. We are not forced to do anything. It is only by our faith and personal testimonies that we stay in the church. People have always tried to find ways to disprove the claims of the founder of the church. But this has happened to all organized religion all over the world. Believing is a personal choice. One of the few freedoms we still can enjoy. We all find out the truth after we are dead, right?”

“None of us can just change what we believe in, and to that extent, it's definitely not our choice.

“Speaking as a former Funeral Director, the issue is respect for the dead and respect for the person who donated their body for medical study.

“For me this is the equivalent to grave robbing. People say "with dignity", but how many people realize the value of this word? It's not just about the dignity of the deceased, for me that person not undignified by this photo at all! The dignity of that person is not touched, I see only a person who this world enough to allow him/herself to be seen and touched by scientists to better the future. But the lack of dignity by the photographer is "extremely loud" and so distasteful that words aren't enough. I am not sure that are not also civil laws that were broken here, such as privacy laws (family members of the deceased, etc).. how must the deceased's family feel to see this picture on the internet now?”

“Although I am Pro-Christmas, I do agree that the use of the word 'Holiday" does include Christmas and all of the other celebrations that have come to light in this age of political correctness. By using the word "Holiday" they are not excluding anyone. The are encompassing all of the "Holy" celebrations. It even works for those of no faith because it doesn't shove 1 particular belief down their throats. Anyway, who cares what they call it? It is just another reason to spend money.”
