Re: Hillary! got now-classified email on server

1. The Clinton machine. Bill/Hillary! have too many entrenched friends and far too much of a network with far too many resources at their disposal.

Yes, they do have a lot of powerful friends but those who drive the Democratic Party [more]

Re: Squeaker Doodle Bug - 6 Years Later

I remember how worried you were, and how uncertain you and your wife were as to what the right choice was.

I also remember how happy you were when her personality came back, and she could play as she did before the leg problem.

Re: Squeaker Doodle Bug - 6 Years Later

Nice update.

While I don't recall your exact location, I was right up near you a couple weekends ago.
I had Zero extra time, and there was an ER visit with a 2 yr old in the mix to cut that down even further, but I thought of you

Hi dlbuffy, sorry for the delay in replying but I'm getting ready for a business trip.

Fooling the public via journalism

A fascinating look at how journalists chase a "sexy story" without bothering to verify or validate its veracity. There could also be a discussion as to whether this is ethical or not but it does reveal a troubling and growing problem in [more]

Re: Hillary! got now-classified email on server

Hillary! got now-classified email on her private server. Which is BS. She had ALWAYS been getting classified email on her private server and it's always been ludicrous to suggest that she never did

Re: Star Trek fans: Don't read this

But the question is are movies worse today than in the past in terms of intelligent, artistic content (however one wants to define "intelligent and artistic")? That's a legitimate question. That's a truly debatable issue, regardless of [more]

Squeaker Doodle Bug - 6 Years Later

It's been 6 years since Squeak had her right rear leg amputated and she's still doing well. She has some arthritis problems and her spine has become a bit misaligned (due to the missing leg) but she gets pain medication once per day and that seems to [more]

Re: Freakonomics on Healthcare

In my experience, Australians look at health care much differently than Americans do. Americans see it as a consumer experience, and seem to want to get "their money's worth." Australians seem to view it more as a service, and are quite [more]

Interestng misunderstanding

I was watching "Last Week Tonight" with John Oliver and was a bit confused by his story concerning the poultry industry. At one point he said, and I paraphrase here since I can't remember word for word, "So this is the way it works. [more]

Re: Another brick in the wall

To a sane person, this is part of a logical, long-overdue rolling back of Reagan-era initiatives fueled by the ridiculously failed "war on drugs", and which instead resulted in increasingly confrontational and violent relationships [more]

Re: The Myth of "Affordable" Health Ca

1. All European countries spend a FAR lower amount of money on healthcare per capita than the US, and a substantially lower percentage of GDP, despite their much older populations. That's indisputable.

That is indisputable, however [more]

The Myth of "Affordable" Health Care

Many think that in Europe everyone has access to "affordable health care." That is a myth for many reasons but I'll stick to a simple truth that I face on a regular basis. While doctor visit prices are fixed in most countries in Europe, [more]

In the preceding post I read that Tom Brady is "arguably greatest NFL player of all time" which got me to thinking, can he really be in the argument for "greatest NFL player of all time?"

Re: Eating meat question

It takes an enormous amount of effort by humans to generate and maintain those very large herds of food animals. These are not natural, wild-harvested populations - they are grown to that size in order to meet demand for the product. If beef [more]

There were some good responses here and I liked the point MetroChick made about running too far to the left or right to get back to the middle for the general. I think that's right in this case as Sanders will most likely try to push Hillary MUCH [more]
