    Jasonx10; where can I donate and sign up at? ;)

    Is anyone really surprised?

    Zappa-boy;

    You didn’t address my questions; why must there be a shortage? Why must there be red tape? Why must there be a bottleneck between patient and doctor? Why must there be a giant government bureaucracy that regulates things into shortages like we have today? Those are backwards ways of thinking.

    Stop thinking backwards and starting thinking constructively. There is no reason the system, the private free market system, can’t care for everyone.

    JasonR12345;

    Total BS. No one is saying that we need “unlimited” resources because not everyone is going to get sick at the same time with the same disease or illness. People like you lack imagination or vision on how to tackle the real problems and therein lay the real problem with healthcare in the world today.

    Again – there is no need to ration resources. We must be asking ourselves why is there a shortage? Why is there a bottleneck? Why is there so much red tape? I can answer those questions with one word… bureaucracy.

    Pull your head out of your rear end before it’s too late JasonR12345. Because if we continue on this path, in the future as you approach your “government mandated end of life decisions” I bet you’ll be singing a much different tune…

    Zapparules;

    I’m sorry but you’re looking at it backwards and that’s the problem with people like you. I would ask why is there a shortage of medical supplies or staff? (you are meant to ask yourself that question by the way – I know the answer to that question)

    I would take steps to increase the supply as the demand is clearly increasing. Not take steps to ration the existing medical supplies. I would locate the bottlenecks and red tape in the system and eliminate them. Not increase the wait times with more regulations and paperwork.

    We shouldn’t have to be choosing one life over another zappa-boy. ALL life should be cared for as ALL life is precious.

    I’m not going to mince words… the moment I saw my child, and the sitter admitted to hitting him, I’d beat the sitter to death in a blind rage with the first thing I could get my hands on. Absolutely can’t stand child abuse…

    ChimneyWizard;

    I’ll back you up on this one. I’m a gamer. My wife accepts that about me. She was even cool with me building my own gaming room in our house with a custom built kick-a$$ gaming rig (PC gamer here), an overstuffed reclining couch, and surround sound system. We own our own home. We own our vehicles. Both fully employed. (I own a business) We have kids… dogs… the kids are in private school. Wife and I have been together for well over 10 years now and we’re still going strong.

    It irks me to no end when folks throw out the ignorant comments around about gamers being nitwit kids who know nothing living in their mom’s basement. That may have been true at one point but many of us are old gamers now. We started off in the early ’80s playing arcades and we’re still going strong today…

    Good. I made good on my promise years ago to never step foot in a Target again when they kicked the Salvation Army out… too bad many others didn’t follow suit. It’s nice to see people are finally sticking to their guns this time.

    Crap $1,000? I’d be lucky to come up with $300 on the spur of the moment if I absolutely had to…

    Guess I can’t complain though. My house is paid for except that stupid property tax that comes due twice a year. -_- I don’t have a problem paying for services I use but when it goes for things I don’t use it tends to burn my rump a little some days.

    I’m actually rather enjoying this discourse in the Dem party… I’ve got a big bag of popcorn and a comfy chair. Have at it I say.

    “…but also for higher Social Security and Medicare taxes employers must pay on all of a staffer’s compensation…”

    And that right there folks is the real meat of the meal. It has nothing to do with workers rights or anything like that. Old Uncle Sam feels it is getting screwed out of potential taxes because salaried workers are not working for a higher hourly rate past 40 hours. Hence they are not being taxed at a higher hourly rate past 40 hours.

    Yeah I watched the video again – you folks are right and I was wrong. Thanks for pointing out it! The folks in the car threw the drink first and it hit the lady so it would be on them so technically they started the physical altercation.

    Still though, makes for funny reality TV. ;)

    Oh boo-hoo John Kasich. If you had any integrity you would have dropped out months ago instead of screwing around until the end. You knew you had no hope of winning yet you just had to hang on… delusional pr|ck.

    I gotta call it against the idiots in the truck. Don’t know what was said during the argument but the people in the car look like they were, at least trying to leave. The old saying applies here; “sticks and stones”. The first person that threw the punches is the aggressor and that would be the people in the truck.

    Yep… we called this one. LOL

    Things are certainly starting to go downhill around here pretty quick the last year or so…

    I’m pretty well versed in music… come from a music family (we all play, or played growing up) …but who are these ladies and why should I care? I’m familiar with several a capella groups but I’ve never heard of this group. Looks like a bunch of ladies well past their prime trying to regain their former glory with a publicity stunt if you ask me.

  • [5] May 14, 2016 at 7:44am

    Best of luck too! I did it for a few years before I came off the road and started a family. Started my own business instead. (not driving a truck – lol) Still miss it though, got that wanderer’s blood in me I guess…

    I know ours is becoming popular again, and it was always a popular school. Earlier this year when they opened up enrollment for next school year, in less than 48 hours of opening that enrollment period they were full. They were turning students and parents away because they had no more room in next years classes. (sure it’s the same at your school – precedent is given to returning students of course so slots for new students were limited but still, they went lightening fast)
