As a doctor, I can assure you that being obese takes a signicant toll on your organs, that may not show up on basic preventative labs. It’s awesome that you are being proactive about your weight. Your body will thank you, especially as you get older.

It’s funny how you idiots vote down comments that are true, but you just don’t want to hear…

Oh…if the lawsuit says that she still suffers pain, than there definitely is a story here!

Classified information is transmitted under AES (or other equally strong) encryption standards. Under real world conditions, those encryption protocols are not being defeated. It’s ridiculous to imagine that she could be blackmailed. I mean it is actually ridiculous, in the same way unicorns are ridiculous.

It’s true that criminals, and sociopaths of all types target those who they perceive as weak. It’s just an urban legend that gangs routinely initiate new members by having them kill an innocent person. The standard for street gangs is blood in, blood out. That means you get jumped in, not that you are asked to go kill a citizen.

Of course her ankle is healed. The injury was 10 months ago. Where is the story here??
According to her lawsuit she STILL suffers pain, etc. So, if that is true, how did she managed to hike UP a mountain? At least she could postpone that activity until AFTER her lawsuit is settled. Stupid is as stupid does.
Then, of course she won't mind if the city of New York consults with her doctor & views any x-rays taken when the injury was sustained because it doesn't look to me as if it was very serious if she is able to hike & wear highheels now. I don't believe she had to have surgery & she could have sprained her ankle doing any number of things, so why should the taxpayers of NY have to support her dumb ass for being clumsy & not watching where she is walking? What about her being overweight & stupid?
Oh...if the lawsuit says that she still suffers pain, than there definitely is a story here!
The story, idiot, is that NOBODY get $5mil for a friggin sprained ankle!!!

Do you even know what Zappos is? Obviously not. They are a bit more than theory leading to failed application.

I think people on both sides can agree this is a stupid comment. It’s like reminiscing on the good ol’ days of calvary before those silly tanks ruined the battlefield. More Americans are living well than at any point in history. There is less disease, less crime, longer life, and more wealth than ever before.

You must admit that this complicates the narrative that big government leads to less individual freedom and happiness. Most of you will just attack and dismiss the data. You mustn’t let pesky facts interfere with perfectly good beliefs!!
As quoted by red foreman "there may come a time in your life when you feel happy, but you're not.... You're just too numb from your hellish life to feel the pain."
That's socialists. Enslaved and happy.
Facts? LOL It's a 1 minute 30 second youtube video.
These people would rather drop dead than ever admit for one second that socialism might be, in some small way, a good thing. Watch how anyone that even suggests such a thing gets down voted into oblivion. They literally can't and won't process the information.
"If those socialists are happier, then it must be a left wing conspiracy! America is the only free country therefore it's the only happy country!"
Sad nonsense for sad people.
Please move to utopia instead of destroying the greatest country in the history of the world.
No, it just takes a special kind of person to be happy in a slave state.

Are you joking? Obama has been more aggressive than bush ever was when it comes to actually killing bad guys. Obama has expanded the drone program, which is by far the most “productive” ongoing operation. I hate Obama for 99% of his policies, but people who say he hasn’t taken action are idiots.

It’s more of a resources issue than anything else. Space can be manipulated, and we can see that with massive gravational bodies – like large stars. Using Relativity, we can see the relationship between mass and energy. If we had a robust enough energy source we could create a “depression” in space-time, just like a large star, or singularity.

Ugh…As I wrote above:
As a practicing clinician with a doctorates in neuropsychology, and neurophysiology, I can assure you that transgenderism is a well documented medical condition. Prevalence is very difficult to assess because many people don’t seek treatment. It’s probably around .005%, but it could be significantly higher. Males present at a much higher rate than females. There are multiple theories of etiology ranging from viral exposure to maternal stress. These factors seem to cause a surge of androgenizing hormones (or an absence of surge) at the wrong time in fetal development. The result is a physical male with the brain architecture, and chemistry of a female, or reverse.
not everyone is going to read ALL of your responses so don't be upset if people are saying this as IF they didn't read what you wrote, they probably didn't.
Your comment is very well spoken and I appreciate it and learned much from it, although I believe that while you are right totally, there are millions of people out there who just want to jump on the counter-culture by claiming to be gay. Some of those grow up and suddenly are heterosexual (I work with kids as a special education teacher and a behavior specialist). Others get stuck in the lifestyle and feel they have no other choices. One girl told me she was a lesbian because a boy broke her heart (find that interesting?). My brother is likely asexual but made a choice to be gay where he could take advantage of being the feminine "kept" woman who never worked but was given a lifestyle he certainly became accustomed to. Others, likely your clinical documented medical condition, do this - I want to keep my male body but run around and act like a female and demand other people make it okay for me to do that. This is what makes people confused, that there are no true condition such as this. This is just my opinion obviously based on the kids I work with and people I know. It is helpful to know that you do know of true cases of people who really are struggling, rather than those who just want to "play" whatever gender and try to make everyone stop recognizing there ARE difference between boys and girls.
I agree 100% Tanker....
1st of all no one buys that you are a doctor of anything. 2nd, if what you say is true, which it is not, wouldn't it be easier to change some ones mind instead of the massive mutilation that has to be performed to change their body?

Your knowledge is limited. As a practicing clinician with a doctorates in neuropsychology, and neurophysiology, I can assure you that transgenderism is a well documented medical condition.

Yes. Many pedophiles report that they felt those attractions as soon as they became aware of sexual attraction to others. The most silly part of your position is that you don’t apply it to yourself. Are you saying that you felt equal attraction to men and women, and then one day you decided to choose women? How blind are you to your own motives and feelings?
good logic. there must be a large amount of bisexuals commenting here. I just don't get the whole choose thing.
Exactly. If our sexuality is a "choice", then everyone is a bisexual at birth and makes the "choice" at some point. I personally know it's not a "choice", but a whole lot of Christian Conservatives think it is. Interesting.
not at all. if its a choice, people are born ASEXUAL, not bi-sexual.
anyways, as people have said before, LOVE is not based upon SEXUAL DESIRES.
No. Asexuals are not attracted to either sex, hence they are asexual and would have no need to make a choice. They would choose neither. Bisexuals are attracted to both sexes, so if made to "choose", would make a choice based on which life style they would want to live. Homosexuals and heterosexuals are attracted to only one sex, and there is no "choice" to be made.
I'm sure someone will disagree with this but, I don't think being gay is a choice or genetic. I believe our sexual preferences are created from life experiences and outside factors as we grow up. Children don't have a sexual preference at birth. Also, if being gay is genetic only those who procreate could pass on the gene, now we have invitro but, it still would require another's genes and it's not guaranteed that they have a gay gene, eventually the gay gene would disappear from our genome, since two gay people can't procreate. Just a thought

That’s true of the Bible as well. The Old Testament is every bit as violent and vengeful as the Quran. You don’t see the love because you are ignorant of the religion. That’s not an insult. That couple is most likely ignorant of Christianity. You wouldn’t pay any attention to commentary that they make about your religion because you know they would be talking out of their -ss. Do you see the irony?
Your moral equivalence argument between the Qur'an and the Bible is very dangerous because it fails to perceive the role that human depravity plays in the disastrous actions of the past. The Catholic Church did do terrible things during the inquisition. Even after the Protestants got a foothold, they too persecuted Anabaptist. If good people can do evil acts, how many more evil acts would an evil person do if given enough power? The Catholic Church never had the power to do anything about the rise of Islam until it obtained political power and the power to command armies into the service of God. There is no Golden Rule in the Qur'an. People only have value if they are Muslim.
There is no equivalence between the Qur'an and the Bible on any meaningful level. Moral equivalence arguments are nothing more than excuses for moral neutrality in the face of great and looming evil.
Ego. I didn't make any comment about that couple, I was referring to the ignorant generalization Eden made about all religions. We're not living in the times of the crusades when Christianity was at war with Islam. Today Islam is trying to exterminate all Christians and anyone else who won't follow their death cult. And don't accuse me of talking out my ass again bitch.
Ego, please go and actually read the Bible or just go.
There are no Modern day Christian that follow the old testament. That is why it is called the OLD testament. After the coming of Jesus the new testament was written to reveal a loving God and a peaceful religion. Few gory and questionable stories but none are meant to be taking literally. They are parables or lessons to teach morality. The Jews believing that Jesus is not the son of God follow their Torah more closely based on the OLD testament. So your beef is not with Christians but Jews.
Modern day Christianity is good or God… Will Islam ever go through a reformation? If they don’t it’ll be non-existent in America if so-called moderate muslims don’t pull their heads from their arsses.
As predictable as the sun rising.....
Everytime you use the red herring/scapegoat of out of context biblical verses, you are inadvertently defending the Koran.
Every atheist I've ever met has given Muslims a free pass to keep doing the things atheists have been doing for 100 years.
bumfuzeled much of the old testament is a history, but to say that Christians do not obey the Torah or Old testament is foolish as there is a rapidly growing number who do. We do not eat scavenger meats like pork, we do not keep the Roman Pagan day of Sol Invictus and worship the rising Sun on the "venerable day of the Sun god" or Sunday as you Romans call it. We keep the real Sabbath as it was from the Mouth of GOD.
To say the Old testament is vengeful and violent is to say you never read it EgoLacuna because if you did read it in it's full context you would have to be retarded to not get it's point and history, as there were solid reasons why people were killed and most was self defense. Or do you think self defense is evil you silly Liberal?
It is amazing how ignorant these Liberals are and distressing when self professed Christians proudly proclaim they do NOT follow GODS original laws.
Mat 19:17 "Why ask me about what is good? There is
only one who is good. If you want to get into that life, you must keep
"And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one jot
or tittle of the law to fail" (Luke 16:17);
"Do not think that I came to destroy the Law" (Mat 5:17), I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly I say to you, till heaven and earth pass
away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled" (vs.17-18)
Mat 5:19 So whoever sets aside one of the least of these commandments
and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom
from heaven. But whoever does them and teaches them will be called
great in the kingdom from heaven.
Mat 5:20 because I tell you, unless your righteousness greatly exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the
kingdom from heaven!"
'You shall love the LORD your God with all your
heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first
and the great commandment. And the second is like it. You shall love
your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law
and Prophets" (Mat 22:37-40)
"If you love Me, keep My commandments"
(John 14:15) as well as "If you keep My commandments, you will abide
in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in
His love" (John 15:10). "He who does not love Me does not keep My
words" (John 14:24).
(Mat 19:17)."Now as He was going out on the road, one
came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, 'Good Teacher, what
shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?' So Jesus said to
him..."You know the commandments" (Mk 10:17,19) and then He listed
half of the ten commandments (also in Luke 18:19-20). "In the beginning was the Word...All things were made through Him, and
without Him nothing was made that was made" (John 1:1,3) ALL THINGS INCLUDES THE COMMANDMENTS!

Why don’t you respond to blinks point instead of changing the subject.

This is a revealing moment. The Blazers identify most strongly with the crazy lady on the subway. How sad.
Perhaps the crazy lady on the train has a better command of history and Islam than the average person. Only about 10 percent of the people in the USA actually fought in WWII. The rest were providing material support via taxes, rationing buying bonds and displaying gold stars in their windows. The same small fraction of actual hand to hand combatant participants is true of any world conflict. The peaceful Muslims pay a yearly tax, the Zakat, that is suppose to be for charity but within the qualified charity categories in Jihad or Jihad in foreign lands. This makes these "innocent people," accomplices in mayhem for the cause of Allah. You can find Zakat calculators on the internet to figure out how much they are contributing to both the good and bad works of Islam. Even Muslim governments must pay this tax, so it may max out at 2.5%, but it also turns out to be a double dip, first individually and next on your government. When Muslims immigrate to the west, they end up sending more money to the Imams for Mayhem.
It's very difficult to stand up for someone who won't stand up for themselves either because they can't or they won't. Which one do you think it is? The woman should have kept her mouth shut, if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all but people are frustrated, angry at how Islam and progressives are ruining the world. I guess that Socialism/Communism Islamic theocracy stuff isn't working out so good, is it.
Ego, You are an idiot. You and those like you will be the first to fall when the mooslimes decide to come after the infidels.
that you think islam is ok is what is sad.
dnewton is 100% correct. only very stupid uninformed people do not know what he is speaking about.
My thoughts exactly... sad and shocking.
It's mob mentality on this site. Pitchforks and torches are over there next to the Bibles.
Everyone had points to make.
But something to add. What should have been added. This would be an example of how Jewish people fill from people in other countries. Just a prospective.
But the biggest difference is the fact hat they are not involved in 40 plus conflicts across the world. Or cutting peoples heads off, and not trying to take over countries.
The fact is. You don't who is a problem and who isn't. Because you don't see the Muslims as a whole standing against groups lie ISIS, and their behavior. And the goal, which is to spread.
But unless there is a problem on the train. People should just leave people alone.
