Re: Addictive disease a public health problem

If you are going to make adictive drugs illegal, then how will you enforce that law without punishment? Do we want to punish people for a disease? None of this reducing prison terms alone makes any sense.

Re: Average Wedding Cost now $31,000

We attended catholic premarital counseling. Many times they said "a wedding is one day. A marriage is a lifetime". I agree why spend a house downpayment for one day? I didn't and been married 22 years. If a bride turns into bridezilla [more]

Re: Oh MY...Seattle restaurants closing

Open less than two years, the location is closing because business was poor, straight from the owner's mouth. Further, the Canadian based owner went on to indicate they are opening a third location on Canbie in Vancouver (huh, those crazy [more]

Re: Average Wedding Cost now $31,000

I've often observed that the success of a marriage is inversely proportional to the amount of public spectacle of the ceremony.

Re: 5 Studies demonstrate Conservatives are...

Hispanics and blacks are told how to vote. They apparently aren't smart enough to figure it out themselves.

Re: Berkshire Revamps Railway Service

I would think that at 2 miles per day, doing 80 miles per year would not be that difficult, for maintenance only.

Re: Bad Obamacare News ...

Oh, and ObamaKare premiums are going to skyrocket next year, too.

Re: Greek Finance Minister: Greece won't repay d

P.S. One wonders whether the museums in Britain and Germany ever paid the Greeks for all that priceless treasure. Let's see, the cost including interest adds up to a bit more than total Greek debt.

Re: Palin: Visibly Drunk or Just Her Normal Self?

This is a few months old. She's not visibly drunk, she's just not prepared. This was from her own, self-produced video channel. Her response to Warren was just a stream-of-consciousness rant. Which, by the way, is how she always responds when she's [more]

Re: Wall Street is bleeding savers dry.
