Re: Punishing The Poor

Here's one of the many things I don't get. From what I can tell with a little digging, it's not that they can prove TANF recipients *bought* goods and services at these dens of inequity. All they can prove is that they used ATM machines in those [more]

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

I tried to dig through the article/study to get at how they were defining "poverty" since it didn't seem to be the federal poverty line. All I could get was it was what two censuses considered poverty. I never did see any hard figures or [more]

Re: Working the System

For example instead of providing money or food stamps for food, have the poor come to a common cafeteria to eat, these could be set up in the schools as an example.

Re: Working the System

Re: Working the System

The hard part is making rules, that encourage individual responsibility without loosing the safety net and can be nationwide.

Not really. It's pretty easy to make rules...what's hard is making sure they don't conflict with other rules [more]

I loved that book! Named my recently departed kitty " Lazarus Long" in RAH's honor ( and wishful thinking). Loved all the Methusalah's Children books, and " The Notebooks of Lasarus Long".

Re: Forever

Lots of shows like that are a YMMV thing. To me, without the relationships, those shows feel like another day at the office. I got into "Forever" exploring of what happens with relationships when one person's lifespan is so different from [more]

OT: Paperless medical offices?

Dumb post subject but wasn't sure what else to call it. In reading various posts about taking an Rx to a pharmacy, it hit me: I haven't done that in a long time. The docs just electronically transmit the Rx to the pharmacy of my choice (mostly [more]

I got these for my son's groomsmen: their names (in a nicer font than shown) on one side, the wedding date on the other. They loved them. They were all outdoorsy types, so YMMV.

Re: Suffering is good for women

When I think of a male doctor talking about letting nature take its course when it's a ladyparts issue, my brain goes right to Viagra.

And then I wonder how they keep their heads from exploding.

He should hook up with the Milledgeville Walmart pharmacist who said she wouldn't fill an Rx for a medication to help a woman pass a deceased fetus.
