“No scholarship? Wrong color?”

questionitall on May 29, 2014 at 20:52:47

“Yeah Kat cause everybody knows the scholarship money only goes to minorities. I mean look at the population of any college in America that is not a HBU. It's got to be at least 3-4% minorities. With that kind of competition how do you compete right?”

“If you Google racial problems in high schools you will find many incidences of violence between races to the point the police have to intervene.

As long as parents of all colors teach their children to hate those of other colors or to blame those of other colors for their problems, Dr. King's dream will never occur.

Traditional gender stereotypes? Is that like raising your own children instead of dumping them in a daycare?

Whats "dying off" is values and morals.”

“If I go to a party and choose to get blackout drunk, it's no different than walking through the hood at 2:00 am and expecting nothing to happen to me. I am placing myself in that dangerous position.

I am not talking about being jumped in a parking lot of a grocery store or being roofied.”

ChillMe on May 23, 2014 at 21:24:17

“Because being attacked in a parking a lot and being attacked by a known person in a party makes all the difference, right? Oh, I see it is a moral issue, isn't it, since the girl brought it on herself? I would like to suggest you thinking about your children, the possibility that your daughter could go to a party and for whatever reason get drunk and then assaulted , how would you feel? Teen agers are irresponsible. They do the stupidest things, that does not give anyone the right to take advantage of this situation.”

“Everyone has personal responsibility to limit their exposure to all crimes, however, the lack of responsibility does not make a crime committed against them their FAULT. By your logic... if you own a car? Your fault if it's stolen. Own a house, furnishings? Your fault if you get burglarized.”

Elissa Stahl on May 21, 2014 at 22:19:28

“Yet, I know men who would watch over passed out women they didn't even know to make sure they don't get taken advantage of. What makes those men choose to protect and other men choose to rape a passed out woman?”

“If I wave around large amounts of cash and get robbed, I may have been stupid, but I was still robbed. The robber is still a criminal and should still be prosecuted. If someone gets too impaired to keep themselves safe and gets raped, that wasn't smart, but it's still rape, and the rapist is still a criminal and should still be prosecuted.”

“Minimum wage Denmark -- None; instead, negotiated between unions and employer associations; the average minimum wage for all private and public sector collective bargaining agreements was approximately DKK 110 ($20) per hour, exclusive of pension benefits.

Denmark has pretty high payroll taxes, too, so you need more per hour anyway.”

If the pay is inappropriate why are all the restaurants and stores, that are hiring basically unskilled labor, still able to find employees?”

“I ditched grains about a year ago, and many health problems went away. I lost 20 lbs I had been struggling with for 25 years. I eat organic meats and produce, eggs, real butter, healthy oils, and never, never fast food.”

“Teasing other people has probably been happening since the beginning of time. It will never "stop". We just hit a period of time when parents were not teaching their kids to stand up for themselves. If you act afraid or cry they have won. A generation ago we were taught things to say back to verbal taunts and how to physically handle someone bothering us. We also had siblings and friends who had our back, which few kids seem to have anymore. That's pretty sad.”

Chloe A on May 18, 2014 at 10:50:11

“Correct: teasing has & will always be present.
Incorrect: "If you act afraid or cry they have won". No, you are human & not all humans are identical.
Plenty of people from previous generations carry the scars & burden of teasing, taunts & bullying. There are also plenty of people who carry the scars & burden of not having been supported when they were teased.”

“Almost NOBODY has a vitamin D deficiency in America unless it's a metabolic problem.

But don't worry! I'm sending out brainwaves right now that should find you and retroactively neutralize the chem trails and carcinogenic sunblock ingredients that you are experiencing.

It wouldn't hurt to get some crystals and wear a copper bracelet and buy some magnetic soles for your shoes, just to be extra careful.”

“I struggled with the same 20 lbs for 25 years. When I kicked grains it dropped off in 3 months, and my fibrocystic breast disease disappeared. It's all fake though.”

Erik Gaghan on May 17, 2014 at 12:37:20

“That has nothing to do with gluten sensitivity, it has to do with diet consciousness. You still win, why is this a problem? This study has nothing to do with weight loss, neither does "gluten sensitivity." As far as fibrocystic breast treatment, vitamin supplements that maybe have been increased by a healthy diet could have helped? It's disappeared, and you are eating healthy. This all sounds wonderful. What does it matter if an unrelated gluten fad is fake?”

“This is not just an issue of increasing minimum wage for employees who now make minimum wage. If I make $5 more than minimum, I still want $5 more.

Since public school districts have a budget, do you want the schools to reduce hourly staff after raising minimum wage, or do you want higher property taxes? Hourly employees in schools get raises of maybe 25-30 cents an hour each year. Suddenly having to increase every hourly employee $3-$5 an hour? Lay off the 1/2 the teacher's aides? Less custodians? Less security?”

Carter’s plan was for the panels to pay for themselves in 24 years! Even that plan went awry however, as Cousin Hugh could not find anyone to install them for less than $28,000 and another $7,000 would have to be spent tearing up the White House roof.”

Sure, some people will call it a fad, and some people follow fads without knowing why they are doing it. That doesn't mean wheat or any grains don't cause whole body inflammation in a number of people who cannot get any answers from doctors.

We have been consuming gluten for eons, but not GMO grains. Maybe that's where the disease-causing issues come from.”
