    Cruz was funny, and Trump comes off as a grumpy jackass.

    Uh, culper, you can be a duel citizen of both the US and Canada. Google is yer friend.

    A man that didn’t have a paying job until he was over 40 has the plan to make it work for all of us? LOL I’m really tired with the liberal attitude “NEW socialism, we swear that it’s going to work THIS time!.”

    It. doesn’t. work. You cannot take a system that may work with cooperation from all parties with a tiny population and scale it out to 325 million people. With half of the people in this country not working at all (doesn’t matter why), the other half will have to carry it. It’s not about some stupid idea that “rich people’ are going to fund it. There are about 800 billionaires in this country. They have nowhere near the amount of assets required to make a pure safety net for everyone.

    So it means that you and me would have to write checks. BIG checks to the IRS. Massive. checks. His education idea would cost almost 800 billion PER YEAR, every year. In order to understand just how big that number is, is twofold: It’s the equivalent of 10 years of the Iraq War. It’s the equivalent of the 2009 stimulus package.

    Our current federal budget is roughly 3.9 trillion. Bernie’s stated ideas would cost around 1.7 trillion EXTRA per year. So you think that money would only come from the 1% then I have a bridge to sell you.

    Bernie Sanders, the candidate of the math challenged masses who don’t know world history.

    Who isn’t a tool for their employer? LOL Everyone that works for someone else is a tool. That’s most of us out here. They’re not talking to you because you ARE being marginalized. And 10 bucks it’s because of your attitude.

    You see, it doesn’t matter who you are, what you do for a living or who your boss is: When your attitude is flagrantly ‘I know more than you. I know how to do my job AND your job’ and then you direct it towards your bosses, that’s pretty much a formula for ‘yer fired’.

    The business wants to go in a new direction. This would be because they’re failing and they’re trying to turn the ship. If it fails, no one has a job. That would be why you’re expendable. Be a team player and you’ll have a job. Be a pouty special snowflake, then you might as well just update your resume. For someone with a PhD that knows everything, you should already know this.

    I was approximately 38 weeks pregnant with my second child when I had to take BART in the SF Bay Area to get to a class in San Francisco. Parking was non existent in that area, so public transportation was my only real choice. I stood for about 40 minutes, hanging onto a pole. Hot, hurting, very little room to move. Hard to breathe. Not one person looked my way.

    It made me sad, not angry. I was raised to be polite to others. I pictured my younger self, getting up for someone like me. For the pregnant lady, the elderly person, the woman with the small child. I watched all of the young 20 somethings ignore me, and thought about how much is wrong in this society.

    I still open doors for others, whether they need it or not. I will still get up and let someone more infirm take my place. And I still think that there are a whole lot of people on this planet that weren’t raised correctly.

    And especially in the land of the liberal hipster…don’t tell me that you ‘care’ about others when you literally ignore the person who is standing right in front of you. So much intellectual untrue blather. A small gesture that takes little effort to accomplish, that means so much to the person who needs help.

    Lots of Bush ragging. He’s not my candidate, but he’s probably is the guy in the family that ‘should’ have been POTUS after his dad.

    As to looking like a nerd in glasses, well of course! We’re still in middle school and glasses matter, damn it. Makes him a ‘sissy’. At least that is what I would have thought in my 20s. He’s got no oomph, no turbo. He’s not spunky. He’s steady and sure, a bookworm. . The guy that works hard that doesn’t deliver the pithy one liner. Goes to work, pays his bills, loves his family. Ten bucks he has a pocket protector in his dresser. 100 bucks he hasn’t cheated on his wife. Responsibility is boring, bring on the heat!

    You know who he really is? The guy you SHOULD have dated instead of the bad boy on the Harley. Trump is the bad boy. Obama, the bad boy. Even Hillary is the bad boy. And none of them should be POTUS or someone that you should date. Not unless you want your heart broken.

    I would have voted for him for that alone. Unfortunately, he supports some policies that I disagree with. But everything that I mentioned would be reasons to vote FOR him, not against him. Bad boys are paper tigers. Scratch the surface and you see just another self serving person who will sell out the American people.

    Vote for glitter, vote for flash. But celebrity politics will not deliver what this country needs. We’ve just endured the guy in love with the spotlight for 8 years, with painful results. Get ready, we’re going to do it again.

    I have to tell you, thinking back lo those many years ago when I was a teenager, that I would have had something to say if some stranger tried to tell me that I couldn’t speak, think, or pray.

    It’s not in a building.
    It’s not in a classroom.
    It’s not during class time.
    It’s not during an extracurricular activity, that had already ended.

    I’m in public, and you’re going to tell me not to pray? Bahahahaaa! In the words of a sitcom from back in the day, “kiss my grits”. If I’m talking to a human or I’m looking at the sky, as long as I’m not yelling fire in a crowded theater or inciting a riot, my freedom of speech is intact. Bonus irony points that what he was saying was loving.

    Seriously atheists, this is why I can’t stand your posturing and have stopped listening to you.

    My stepfather was rear ended at a stop light. Very low speed, just a bumper bender. But the next day, felt some neck pain, thought that he had whiplash and should be seen. Did a CT, and discovered a tumor on his brain stem. They were able to treat him with radiation. Had NO symptoms. Given the location, once that occurred, it would have been very bad. That was over 20 years ago. He’s elderly now with other issues, but he’s still going strong.

    Cecile, is that you? LOL

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:44pm

    No.

    Here’s a simple question: Do you actually believe in political stereotypes?

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:35pm

    Normally one would say ‘there are no stupid questions’.

    Sorry, this one is. Medical research is ‘science’.

  • September 12, 2015 at 11:31pm

    12/12 But then again, I’m a conservative science major. LOL Easy test. Let’s see a hard one.

    As a female, this should have been dealt with in ‘old school’ style. If a boy steals a kiss and she welcomes it, no harm, no foul. If a boy steals a kiss and she doesn’t like it, she hauls off and smacks him across the chops. His cheeks flames, she glares, and everyone knows where the line is. Case closed.

    When they purchase something, anything, there is no way in hell to know what is in it. They also have no way of knowing how they’re going to react to it.

    I understand that you think that you’re the voice of reason, but as someone that worked holidays in the ICU, my past record of people stroking from cocaine that they tried on a single night during a single shift, is three. The last one was a gray haired grandma. The toughest one was a single guy in his 20s. Incredibly fit. They said that he was the single dad of a couple of kids. Had the body of a boxer, so he wasn’t a user. I spent that three day weekend with a neurologist as we went through the process to prove that he was brain dead and the ventilator was ultimately turned off.

    This isn’t something that i can intellectualize well, I just have seen too many dead bodies, impersonating live people in my time. The 16 year old girl in this article stroked. Any future that she had in front of her has been permanently derailed. Live over before she even left high school.

    You want truth? Brain damage. Death. Permanent impairment. Addiction. Rehab. Grieving families.Crime. Orphaned kids. I’m all in when it comes to REAL drug ‘education’. Let’s all take a field trip to the local trauma center in the inner city on the first weekend of the month and see some truth.

    Nothing personal. But you’ve only begun to look at the subject.

    A private company has access to patient logs for no apparent ‘medical’ reason? I’d say that is a huge violation of HIPPA. Privacy laws are about need to know. There is/was no need to know here.

    Activists too stupid to know who is on the side of their cause, so they bully him to get their 2 minutes.
    End result, the guy doesn’t deliver his message and ultimately, liberalism loses.
    Not exactly brain surgeons.

    And you certainly wouldn’t want kefir! LMAO

  • [1] August 6, 2015 at 12:04am

    The pH of Diet Coke is about 2.5; indeed it’s an ‘acid’.

    The pH of stomach acid is anywhere from 1.5-3.5

    Ergo, your stomach wouldn’t notice it based only upon pH.

    And I have no clue what the heck what you mean when you speak about chemotherapy, considering that most of that is given IV and oftentimes with buffers like sodium bicarb. Not exactly the same route of entry into the body, chuckles. And we’re definitely talking about dramatically different compounds. If you’re trying to argue that Diet Coke is almost as harsh on the body as chemotherapy, you’re completely whack.

    I’m agreeing with number three. Sounds like someone has an in ground sprinkler system that either doesn’t have a back flow valve or has one that is old/broken. Which means, the neighbors need to be seriously looking at each other. Anyone on the block just put in a system by themselves? Gerry rigged it without a back flow valve?

    So I wiki this guy and discover that he was born in 1989. He’s 26 years old. My first thought ‘his frontal lobe has kicked into gear’. The frontal lobe is the seat of judgement and the last thing to develop in a human being. He’s probably just realizing that he’s done a lot of stupid crap.
