Which brings up a question - Does the NYT Best Seller List only reflect hardcover book sales? Amazon would clearly include Kindle ebook sales.

I love how Dr. Carson addressed former Gov. Strickland’s attempted attack. Strickland’s questioning had no substantive basis, so he came off looking like an ass, having had it just handed to him, ever so politely, by Dr. Carson.

One VAMC with an offline ‘wait’ list is a rogue administrator….the last tally I heard was 19 VAMC’s…that’s something else entirely. Senate Democrats blocking the bill that would have allowed accountability is another situation that smells to high heaven.

It is BS! The numbers are reflective of all work, including underemployed part-time that doesn’t support a family, etc. The Obama Administration also redefined what qualifies as work. According to their survey, if I was out of work, but babysat for my neighbor one night & got paid for it, I am now considered employed.

Gwyneth Paltrow has just shown herself to be the complete twit she really is.

This is a perfect example of one of the things wrong with society today. Human nature is human nature, it knows no color or race. Until we all realize that and get over ourselves, truth will continue to only be spoken (and accepted) behind closed doors.

For refusing to remove inaccurate teaching materials, the school board should remove this Superintendent!

…and take away the school’s ability to discipline these kids…
From the Online Entymology Dictionary:
Discipline – early 13c., from O.Fr. descepline, from L. disciplina “instruction given to a disciple,” from discipulus (see disciple). Sense of “treatment that corrects or punishes” is from notion of “order necessary for instruction.”

In my son’s private Catholic school in 1988, a jr. high student did something similar. The student was obnoxious, rude and disruptive in the classroom, and the teacher finally had enough. The teacher sent the student out of the classroom and followed him out into the hall. The teacher attempted to get the kid’s “attention” and in the process, pushed him up against the locker, did not hurt nor hit the child in any way. The student cried fowl, going so far as to file a complaint with the board. The teacher was ordered to apologize to the student. To his credit, the teacher refused and quit rather than be fired. This particular teacher was one of the finest in the school, teaching History and Social Problems. Our boys were in their sophomore and junior years at the time. Juniors had him back to back for two hours a day. The boys and their friends would talk about Mr. W**sh after school, and how their heads felt two ft. wide coming out of his classes; he made them work hard and think hard, and they loved him. For weeks after Mr. W**sh was victimized by this insolent, out of control young man, he laughed and bragged how he’d gotten the teacher fired. And Mr. W**sh and all the other students paid the price.

Interesting observation. You can register to vote when applying for a Minnesota Driver’s License. Not so in Wisconsin. Wisconsin Driver’s Licenses, however, do comply with “Real ID.” (Not yet compulsory, but heavily encouraged during application.) Wisconsin was also inundated with bus loads coming from IL during the Walker recall, utilizing same day registration in order to vote.
Sounds like MNsure.org (healthcare exchange) is pushing voter registration as well.
Taking all the prisoners' votes they can get, too...
And if that isn't enough to get the job done, they can find surplus votes in the trunk of Franken's car!!

We don’t outlaw cars because some people have chosen to drive while intoxicated and have caused accidents. We hold people responsible for their own actions. Banning inanimate objects for some people’s insane behavior is absurd.

The most disturbing of all that you didn’t mention, was Pope Francis’ admission that he stole the cross from the rosary of his father confessor (right out of the man’s hands in his casket), saying, “Give me half your mercy.” That sounds like something right out of a Dan Brown novel, and sickens me to the core; and I’m not Catholic.

We all experience the life we deserve, if not here, then in the next. During life review, I expect Pastor Phelps will feel all of the anguish he caused all of those family members whose funerals he picketed.

Or in other words: “The Pentagon makes extreme effort to improve the President’s image to US citizens and the world.”

I watched the full version of the dashcam video. The cane was already in a down position by Mr. Canipe’s side before Deputy Knox fired his weapon. Weapons being fired during traffic stops are occurring too frequently, begging the question, “Why are peace and patrol officers so hair-trigger fearful of the citizens they’re sworn to protect?” Could it have anything to do with those DHS training targets depicting pregnant women, children and old folks as domestic terrorists, or the devisive rhetoric that seeks to make wackos out of everyday, country-loving, God-fearing Americans? My heart goes out to both Mr. Canipe & Deputy Knox.

But he threatened the Congress with Veto if they sent a bill his way to delay it a year. Politics, pure politics, and it sickens me.

If you correlate the issue to a business or manufacturing enterprise, the percentage represents significantly less than a 1% “failure rate.” While tweaks here and there would be made to reduce the number even further, the number is so miniscule, it would never cause this much attention, or result in modification of an entire process.

Change the subject, blame the Republicans, name call, deflect, deflect, deflect. The truth is out there for all to see & the Koch brothers have nothing to with it. Harry’s declarations disregard, diminish and insult those Americans who are suffering real hardships under the ACA. Let those with eyes see, and those with ears hear.

Yes, this is similar to the Pelletier case; in both instances the parents had the audacity to question the hospitals’ decisions. So, what is driving this? Is this an intimidation technique? On the face of it, once a judge has declared their children wards of the state, the parents have no standing to sue the hospital on their kids’ behalf. Wonder how many people may have accepted this in the past without a fight that made the news?
