Re: Women & guns

What I find more interesting is an overwhelming majority of these mass-shootings are by men. Women are stereotyped as the more "emotional" gender, yet at least so far with gun ownership it's not the women shooting all the innocent people.

Re: Einstein argued against the creation of Isra


Yeah, like Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher (both called the 'Iron Lady').


No. Having 1 woman in a powerful position in a man's world doesn't work. I'm talking about women taking full power and not letting over-grown apes keep [more]

Re: 1/3 with Credit Files in Collection Last Yea

Half these debtors owe under $1350 pp. (And likely some of the debts aren't even owed!) Very sad for an individual unable to pay off such a sum over, say, a year's time or so, but as a national issue, not such a crisis.

Re: Einstein argued against the creation of Israel

I'm thinking the coalition of the 1940's that established Israel was actually anti-Semitic - it's not much different than what a lot of white Americans wanted to do with ending slavery - send all the former slaves to Liberia because the belief was [more]

Re: discounts...

There are student discounts for some things (some movie theaters, some vacations/trips).

Another way of thinking is by 50 you've already accumulated a lot of *stuff* - so maybe the discount is because the business is trying to entice you to [more]

If you side with Hamas, you're siding with ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Queda and other terrorists organizations, because that's who Hamas is and who their supporters are.

Re: Pot Legalization

While I'm for legalizing pot, I'm wondering if other developed nations are looking at us and thinking "Just what the Americans need, legalizing a recreational drug that gives one 'the munchies'".

Re: Opinions on Dog limping temporarily

Re: LBYM garbage disposal deodorizor

If you have a good quality garbage disposal, they rarely break.

Re: More on health insurance

About 8 years ago I went through an angiogram of the head/neck. This is one of those procedures where a catheter is snaked up your body through an incision in the upper thigh/groin. Having gone through a cardiac cathertization 8 years prior to that, [more]

Re: Mayonnaise

Homemade mayo does have raw egg yolks in it. That probably means limited storage life and risk of salmonella. So be careful.

You can reduce the risk by using in-shell pasturized eggs. The lemon juice and vinegar probably do their part [more]

Thanks for all the responses. It started happening again yesterday evening, and a follow-up dose of 1/4 baby aspirin didn't help the 2nd time, so we've got a 1:30 vet appointment today.

Because of lobbyists.

Opinions on Dog limping temporarily

I was wondering if anyone's experienced this with an aging dog, and if so, what did the cause end up being.
