Newest On Government Healthcare

Yet another chapter on how the government is trying to NOT PAY for services.

Re: Who are "they"?

But who can be compelled to open a business there... and who can do the compelling?

With the SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare, not much of a leap for the government to be able to force businesses to open where the government says they [more]

Alert The Atheists Part III

You can't join the USA Air Force anymore. Unless you use the phrase "so help me God" when you take the oath.

Re: Free iPhone U2 Album

I'm not sure why you don't have it.

After dinner I was looking on my iPhone, just searched U2, and the new album was listed. Hit download, no problems. Haven't checked to see if it has appeared on my desktop yet.

There has to [more]

Re: about NFL Goodell

Rodger Goodell is a clown.

Ok, punish Ray Rice, no problem. But then you double down after a video is leaked. So you either knew about the video (giving the appearance of callousness) or you didn't (giving the appearance of [more]

Re: Anti-War Crowd Stunningly Silent

... when our leftist guests read this post ...

They will immediately FA it and the brainless TMF will delete it. So I have no idea what is being talked about.

Nothing screams tolerance like intolerance.

Re: Free iPhone U2 Album

I haven't been able to find it yet. Neither on my iPhone or my iTunes desktop app.

Re: Where were you on 9/11/01?

I was working on L&D that day. Really busy, c-sections and labor epdiruals out the whazoo. After the first c-section, a nurse casually mentioned that a plane had flown into the WTC. First thing that popped into mind was bad weather and a cesna. [more]

Re: OT football culture rant

I avoided athletics in junior high and high school. I have a terrible temper, and can get "evil" when provoked. I just didn't like who I could become. I think too many of those involved in athletics thrive on that.

Re: On learning

If society as a whole begins to embrace the struggle of learning, there is no end to what that could mean for global human potential.

Re: After IS?

The NPP has become so political in recent years that it has lost all or most of it's meaning.
