Re: An Open Letter

we should have sympathy for someone who lost their source of income.

Of course not. But by God and Sonny Jesus, they want the freedom to drive their kids into an early grave by encouraging them to eat crap that will add pounds to their frames and take years off their lives. Their lives will be short, but their [more]

Re: An Open Letter

Nicotine is highly addictive.

No kidding. And everyone on earth has known this for at least 50 years.

Should we have sympathy for someone who engages in a known highly addictive activity and then complains that it's [more]

If he likes working 12 hour days, aren't you worried he's going to be bored at home? Are you sure you two are going to enjoy being around each other so much ALL THE TIME, every day?

Re: iOS is Android

I was in the market for 4 phones. The cost savings over the Verizon store was $400. For that amount, I'm willing to endure some pain.

Re: Change a watch battery

I am philosophically opposed to the consumerist throw-away society. Bad for the environment. Multiplied by 7 billion (the earth's population), even a little waste reduction adds up.

Re: LBYM news sources

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

I think we should do more to celebrate holidays and be social than we do actually. We do give gifts to everyone at christmas but we have strict rules about how much you are supposed to spend.

Re: Prisoner swap was right

It sends the right message to our men and women in uniform...

Re: Bergdhal an asset?

Wonder how much Bergdahl learned about Taliban and AQ personnel and operations during his five years "in captivity." And wonder whether a hidden part of this story is his intelligence value to the CIA. The deserter-traitor story seems a [more]

Re: Restaurant chains with senior discounts

As I scan the list, the true benefit is only in the wallet. There are 41 restaurants on the list. 11 of these 41 are in my 29,000 pop. town, including 2 each of Arby's, MCD, Wendy's, B-King, and Subway. The list looks like a Who's Who of deep-fry, [more]
