Re: Intro and Laptop on Tablecloth

Do any of you have a budget for Home Wants vs Home Needs?

I track my spending each month, and when I bought my place I created a category for "Home Maintenance" and a category for "Home [more]

Re: More environmental maintenance

It's a testament to human "idiocracy" that we know of greener options, could harness them, but don't do so yet in great numbers due to profit & costs.

Re: Scott Walker wants 'Death Panels' for Wiscon

If you are sitting around deciding whether or not to pull the plug on a comatose patient, what would be a good name for your 'panel' to have? I don't care if it's a family panel or a bureaucratic panel, it's probably not a "let's send him to [more]

Re: Child Labor

How depressing. You sound like some of the folks here. That the Jones kid, he's destructive just like his dad. They just write the kid off.

Don't figure out a way to break the cycle, just tolerate it?

Re: Child Labor

There's always going to be some portion of the population that's destructive. Unless overall crime by kids/teens in your area is up, I doubt it's really an issue of this wouldn't [more]

Re: Child Labor

Is there anything preventing teens from doing volunteer work, or the shop from providing that kind of training as an unpaid internship?

Re: GOP loves a child molester

According to the article Duggar was 14 years of age at the time, a stupid misguided teenager. No, I'm not defending him but no doubt he has paid for his stupidity a thousand times over and more to come.

Re: End RoboCalls!

I pretty much stopped getting robocalls when I ditched the landline.

Re: Virulent racism directed at Obama

When was Bush called a N----r?

No, because he's not black. For the most part he wasn't called c*nt either because he's not female. He WAS compared to a monkey though.

When a white person calls a black person n----r, the black [more]

Re: Advantages to children of working mothers

Its not my business to ask them about their sexual orientation, or religion, or whatever. Why can't I/we just accept them for who they are at face value?

People probably don't ask about your heterosexuality or that you identify with [more]

Re: Advantages to children of working mothers

I know because we never ask anyone if they are gay, straight, transgender, Catholic, Methodist, atheist, etc., etc.

So are their gay and transgendered scouts or volunteers in your troupe who through their day-to-day you've learned [more]

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

Meh. The more they save, the more they can pay the Old Folks Home.

Quality comes into play even with "old folks homes". The more one has, the higher quality old folks home one can afford.

Feminists are WELL ALONG in changing the Patriarchy into the Matriarchy.

Re: Advantages to children of working mothers

I have no personal outrage because the part of the organization in which my son participates, discriminates against no one.

Re: Palmyra obscenity

My question to you is how many American lives is it worth to preserve these relics?

It's not simply about preserving the relics - it's about the group of people who would do something like this.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions.

I'm going to work in the room for the next couple of days just to see if I enjoy the color. The other day's reaction might just be from shock of seeing any non-neutral wall color after being in an [more]

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

It depends on who we're talking about.

If we're talking about someone 64 today who will pay off their house when they retire, currently live a modest middle-class lifestyle, and don't have a lot of major health issues, than $1 Mil is [more]

I feel quite the opposite. Our son is a Boy Scout, and working on the Eagle Scout requirements. The leadership experience and maturity he has gained from participating is amazing. I'm wondering why you feel the way you do about the Boy [more]

Re: Living wage

I don't have a problem with a state or county raising its minimum wage above the Federal minimum wage.

But I don't think that means that the Federal minimum wage needs to be $15/hour, since there's vastly different COL in the US. IMO the [more]
