    And this is called “paying it forward”? buying someone a cup of coffee (from the always expensive Starbucks) is not an act of charity.

    Now if you bought dinner for a homeless person or helped someone out at the grocery store who didn’t have enough money for necessities, yes, that’s a “pay it forward” act of kindness. Watch the movie of you haven’t seen it already.

    Part of the problem is too many companies want college educated people to fill those positions, when a non-graduate could do the job. I was also one who was let go from a good job when they decided all employees had to have college degrees. I had been doing the job for 2 years, and was good at it.

    I don’t think that kicking the family was too harsh a punishment for the mom. NEVER change a diaper where food will be served. NEVER. Doesn’t matter HOW discreet you are. Yeah – I’m a mother. Either change the baby in the restroom or in the car.

    I was a teenager in the 1970s when environmentalists were sure we were heading for another ice age. The resultant “studies” had fuel prices soaring, Car manufacturers were making smaller fuel efficient cars, buildings such as Churches walled up their huge windows so they would be more energy efficient buildings…. newer buildings were being built with smaller windows…. Hell, scientists even wanted to “paint” the polar icecaps black, to absorb more heat from the sun.

    The “CLIMATE CHANGE” is a part of the earth cycles. cycle – that’s what happens. cycle – thing change. And the ONE thing you do NOT hear ANYONE saying is – C02 is USED by plants which then produce OXYGEN. If you want to reduce the C)2, PLANT MORE GRASS!!!!

    As I understand it, the race was at night, therefore the track wasn’t well illuminated as if it had been daylight, Ward was also wearing a dark (black?) racing suit. And last of all – what driver doesn’t stay in his [damaged] car after a crash?

    Unless the car is on fire, there’s no good reason to exit the car, AND there’s no good reason to walk onto a track where other cars are whizzing by. I don’t think Stewart was at fault.

    the words “closet” and “closest” are both spelled correctly, therefore a spell checker isn’t going to help. Proof-reading may not help in this case as it’s well known that the mind will see what is SUPPOSED TO be there, and ignore what is actually there. What Liz needs is a GRAMMAR CHECKER.

    Right you are. I used to email her but she’s quit responding.

    I agree with Beck – Cruz has a RIGHT to speak her mind. Along with HER RIGHT to do so, is OUR RIGHT to object to her comments. I don’t believe anyone has suggested that CRUZ shut up. I believe comments condemning someone else’s comments is not a call for silence.

    If you say something I object to, that’s your right. And it is my right to speak and condemn you. Your ideas = your right to say whatever.

    I wash, wash wash. It’s second nature to me. I’ve taken care of elderly parents who have been ill (with a stomach “flu”) and never gotten sick. I’ve taken care of sick children and never gotten their illness. I learned young, that cleanliness is of major importance. Other than colds, I’ve never gotten sick from my children. I KNOW clanliness makes a difference.

    Yes, I agree, too damned many people discount the advantage of cleanliness.

    I know ebola is deadly. However, I think the panic is overblown. Less than 1000 people (out of 7 BIL on earth) have died, and less than 1000 are currently actively ill.

    If it’s so hard to spread, why does it spread? Lack of cleanliness. That’s it in a nutshell. Here is the US we have clean water, sewage treatment and a huge availability of SOAPs and disinfectants, I don’t have a clue how American Aid workers got sick with ebola, unless they “forgot” to wash up…….

    I guess I must be an idiot. After 3 kids, Bikinis were the last thing on my mind to wear. I switched to one-piece suits that showed off my best feature – my boobs got bigger after having babies. I don’t mind a low cut suit, but I do cover up the stretch marks on my belly – just my preference. My belly wasn’t flat either, but my bottom was still shapely :)

    (I have a very skinny friend who still wears bikinis at age 65+. IMHO bikinis are for the young)

    I don’t know about Will’s county but the county I live in has less than 2000 people. 200 of those kids would be a tremendous burden on us. That would immediately increase our population by 10%.

    We have 2 towns, two schools – each goes from K to 12. There are slightly over 250 kids in both schools combined. 200 additional students would cripple our schools terribly!

    (sarc on) Better send them to NYC where 57,000 wouldn’t make a “dent” in the population. (Sarc off)

    I say ship them all home!

    Being a woman, who has used public and school restrooms, I’ve NEVER seen a sanitary napkin dispenser IN a stall. They’re usually mounted on the wall, in the restroom yes, but not in a stall. Did they possibly mean the sanitary napkin disposal bin? (Every stall has one of those).

    My reasoning is if the dispensers were in the general restroom, he would get only pictures of women coming in and out of the restroom and in and out of the stalls. Boring! Seriously this makes a BIG difference!

    Fourth amendment aside Here’s my take….

    I work in a hotel that allows pets. That being said, we have limits – two pets per room, no exception. And we call people if their dogs cause complaints. If we can’t reach them, we offer to move the complainers to another room. If they refuse, we don’t do anything….. if the complainers called the cops, we would be required to allow them to enter the room.

    (My previous hotel owner was a dog lover, and would actually let the barking dogs out, took them into the office, gave them dog treats, petted them, etc. He was good with dogs. I’m allergic so I don’t do that.)

    a Christian-faith based flag is flown about 47 times out of 52 (1 flag per week). Seems to me that equals about 6%. What’s the problem?

    Stupid Protest!!! Condoms are ONE of the 16 birth control methods that HOBBY LOBBY PAYS FOR!

  • [4] July 3, 2014 at 1:15pm

    Women do NOT have “rights” to birthcontrol. Period. Take responsibility for your “reproductive health” and pay for your own bc, regardless what form you choose. Or keep your legs closed. And your big whining mouth!
