I just drove by a local gun show with tons of guns, tons of people and tons of ammo…but no murders. How does that even happen?—

It’s just scary to think how quickly people can be duped into giving up their (and unfortunately, OUR) rights. The government always starts with some BS narrative. “It’s for the children” (gun control) “It’s to stop the terrorists” (TSA molestation) “It’s a humanitarian crisis” (illegal invasion) “It’s to stop the welfare leeches” (sterilization).
Yeah, right. If they really wanted to make people personally accountable, they’d stop welfare. It’s really that simple. That’s not what they want though. They love taking our money and buying votes. They want more of our liberties.
That is so obviously apparent, that I can’t understand how people don’t see it. There’s some bizarre sentiment of loyalty towards politicians/party to the point where people allow themselves (and even their children, elderly) to be abused and look the other way.
Welfare needs to end, on all levels. Whether it’s foreign aid, “bailouts,” or food stamps. It creates a dependent class of people who have absolutely no idea that there is a better way–competency.
I completely agree. It’s no coincidence that once America got in the welfare business (like you said, on all levels, foreign aid, bailouts, food stamps, etc.), our greatness started to wane.
A few of the comments from the above article.
I have to agree. Though it's a good idea to sterilize losers like this guy (dude – ever heard of CONDOMS?? Ladies, ever heard of COMMON SENSE??), it's a dangerous road to travel. That's why America is in the shape she's in today – the government has chipped away too many of our freedoms.
“It’s like a crapshoot,” Spratte says. “You may or may not be letting something in with a disease we haven’t had in the U.S. before.” He says he knows of an active case of tuberculosis that passed through the facility, along with people who had scabies and others who had measles. There was even one case of leprosy, he says. “I don’t think the people in the interior U.S. realize it’s a different world,” Spratte says. “This is the U.S., but it’s a different part of the U.S. This is almost like a different country.”
“We can’t solve this, we can’t stop the problem because it’s not an enforcement thing, it’s a policy,” he says. “Because whether or not it was intentional, the policies they have in Washington I believe are encouraging them (illegal immigrants).”
Uh, YA THINK???
Hey, ya’ll voted the SOB into office FOR THE SECOND TIME.
Now deal with his “Utopia.”

Why are people asking what the US will do about Iraq? Better question: what will Iraq do about Iraq? Warhawks need to get a clue for once—

These comments kill me. So, by your logic, it will be equally okay to get involved in a fight that is not our fight when we have a Republican president? Right?? You can’t have it both ways … either we help them because it’s the right thing to do, or we don’t, regardless of the party in power at the time.
Right. Because the old regime was such an innocent bunch of good ‘ole boys who wouldn’t hurt a fly … until they organized and flew planes into American buildings and killed thousands of innocent people.
And let’s not forget that we just added fuel to the crazy terrorist fire by releasing five top Iranian terrorists to join the fight and brain storm new, horrific ways to kill us.
Hey. Don’t look at me, I didn’t vote for the numbnut.

Within reason, of course. Don’t steal other people’s property/money simply because you WANT to. Don’t run over people, or hurt them, literally, or figuratively, because you WANT to.
But honestly, we are a country of tip-toers, people who are too afraid to simply BE who they want to be. Who cares who you sleep with. (I’M STRAIGHT AND I SLEEP WITH MY MALE HUSBAND – see? Snoresville). Who cares if you wear white after Labor Day.
You are you. Don’t apologize for that.
I tell people all the time, in fact, I should get have this tattooed on my forehead: I am who I am – take it or leave it.
This victim hood nonsense needs to stop. Society has legitimate victims. If your "struggle" is coupled with your ideology, you're not one.—

I just started watching "Breaking Bad." I'm not sure I'll continue to season 2. Disturbing on so many levels. Couldn't watch "Weeds" either.—

Back up to two cups o' coffee per day. *sigh*—

I’ve been trying to be good, but OY, this job … it just requires too much mental energy too early in the morning. In fact, that’s our busiest time – from about 9:00 to 2:00, we’re non-stop patients. Then, from 2:00 to 5:00, we’re scrambling to complete everything we need to complete for the patients we helped that day, sending referrals to other doctors, answering voicemails, answering flags from the nurses and trying to precertify tests for patients that are scheduled for that week.
In other words, it’s non-stop activity. And though I’ve tried to hold off on my caffeine intake for later in the morning, I find myself stuttering, stumbling and just having a lot of trouble focusing on the task at hand without it.
So yeah. I’m back up to two cups of coffee per day. And I’m having more caffeine-withdrawal headaches and I’m taking way more migraine medicine that I would like, but sometimes, ya gotta do what ya gotta do to make it through the day, you know?

Do YOU believe everything you hear/read?
I sincerely hope not. Because you’re being lied to every day.
Take everything with a grain of salt – everything.
Find out for yourself if what you hear/read is true.
Separate yourself from the “sheeple.”

Earth Hour ………………….. *snort* HAHAHAHHAHAHA …
How about this – how about retraining yourself to conserve energy every day of the year? I know that Earth Hour is a day to remind people of that fact, but geez louise, people – sit in the dark for an hour?
Consider these …
Light brings safety. There are safer ways to make a statement and raise awareness than to create a controlled time when thieves and rapists know they will be harder to spot.
The energy spent raising awareness about Earth Hour just might cancel out the energy saved that hour.
It is perversely amusing to see thousands of Earth Hour adherents generate illumination during Earth Hour by lighting candles and making bonfires. Isn’t the very premise behind Earth Hour to REDUCE carbon emissions? Where is the logic in eschewing clean-burning electricity – and by the way, 96% of the electricity in the province of Ontario IS clean-generated – in favour of illumination obtained from a power source (i.e., open fire) that generates completely unfiltered CO2 emissions?
Indeed, most of the candles sold in Canada are made from paraffin, a petroleum byproduct. Thus, illuminating one’s house with paraffin candles is equivalent to letting a diesel engine idle.
Oh, and how’s this for an inconvenient goof? Turning off the lights in a skyscraper only to reactivate those lights an hour later actually consumes MORE power than letting those lights remain on for the duration of that hour. Oh sure, it makes for a nifty photo op – but what, pray tell, is the point? Is Earth Hour simply about feel-good optics rather than tangible solutions?

Amen, brother. A.M.E.N.
By all accounts, Martin had gotten away. That’s corroborated by Zimmerman’s and Rachel Jeantel’s testimony. Per Zimmerman’s account, Trayvon had run down the path behind the townhomes and was out of sight. Jeantel testified that Trayvon had made it to his father’s backyard – well out of sight from Zimmerman, we now know – when she was on the phone with him that night. If we’re going to have an honest discussion about race, we need to have an honest discussion about why Trayvon Martin chose to go and confront Zimmerman after he had gotten away. I have yet to see one commentator on the subject ask why Martin didn’t call 911. We’re not having an honest discussion about this situation so how can we possibly have an honest dialogue about the broader issue?
And that’s true even if the savings account doesn’t have enough money in it to cover a full degree — or even a semester. A study from Washington University in St. Louis has attributed this effect to aspirations. A kid who grows up knowing that their parents and others expect high education — and who grows up thinking about higher ed as an option for them — is more likely to go.
People are in so much of a rush these days…weekends are for family, nature, relaxing & enjoying friends…why rush that?—
