Re: whose interests should take precedence?

It's the only democracy and country with a free society. There was a time around here when the US supporting such was a good thing.

I wouldn't say it's a "free society" since the Palestinians in the area don't seem so [more]

Re: Rite Aid Pharmacy Denying Drugs

Why not fulfill a week's worth then, and get her the rest before the week is up? I've had pharmacists give me one or two day's worth and fill the rest the next day.

Possibly her insurance won't allow her to get such small orders, the [more]

Re: Hillary: just fake enough

I'll take "fake" over dumb and crazy, which is what the Republicans are putting out.

Re: Hillary's better?

They’re trying to make liberals stay home.

If Hillary passes the primaries this time, which is appears she's poised to do, female voters are not going to stay home because we're not going to pass up an opportunity to either vote FOR [more]

Re: And so it goes

He's going to learn that even heterosexual couples discriminate against bigoted business owners - especially ones that seem unstable, which he does since he's encouraging customers to bring their guns with them.

Re: whose interests should take precedence?

Israel is an important ally, the only democracy in the region [this creates a leading question that biases the results in favor of Israel, IMO], and we should support it even if our interests diverge.

If an ally is important that [more]

Re: Muslim Extreme Misogyny

What are your thoughts of extreme Muslim misogyny in much of the Middle East where theocratic rule dominates?

Misogyny tends to still dominate in countries where there is a slightly higher percentage of males to females ratio. It's [more]

Re: Extinction - White Rhino - OT

So you do think humans are a cancer?

A cancer cell usually has the marker of not stopping it's growth once it bumps into other cells. So I would say humans have become a cancer on Earth - not that we intrinsically are a cancer. When [more]

Re: Abrahamic religion is a virus

I started this by wondering why a person's sexual identity would be such concern to anyone, ever.

Part of it probably has to do with the time when it was created/gained popularity. It was basically anti-Roman Empire - which was filled [more]

Re: Terrible family budget

it's who you spend your time with.

Or who you DON'T have to spent your time with.

Re: Guns keeping owners safer?

If she wanted access, I would give it to her. She has a strong dislike of guns. I could not have guns in the house for the first 15 years of our marriage. She wouldn't take a gun out of the safe even if someone was smashing down the front [more]

Re: Not Sure What To Make of This

Bank Teller is like the receptionist of other companies - meaning if you're college educated you might stay in that job 6 months before getting promoted, but if you don't have a college degree you're unlikely to move anywhere.

Re: Guns keeping owners safer?

I'm the only one that has access to my gun safe. Not even my wife has access.

So if you think guns keep a homeowner safer in their home, how is your wife safe when you're not home?

Re: Guns keeping owners safer?

I would suggest, however, not being too outspoken when saying "I'll never own a gun." Criminals love easy targets, anyone telling them they're unarmed is giving them a green light to attack.

Re: The right wing attack on anything green

Most people over 65 spent the majority of their adulthood sacrificing for their children.

Re: Terrible family budget

a family who feels like they've 'made it' earning $142,000 a year

Oy! I think having a mind set you've "made it" gets a lot of people into trouble.

I'm guessing she wanted you to wear slacks & jackets, skirts & jackets, or even suits instead of slacks & sweaters and slacks & blouses. Why she couldn't come out and say so directly is a mystery. Perhaps she was not entirely [more]
