    My Zumba instructor has a sibling with Downs syndrome. The stress of caring for him is actually tearing the family apart. The household who has care of him had to be available for Social Services with little to no notice. The money to refit the house for his disabilities was only available for the one [...]

    As we age we sometimes aren’t able to live lives without assistance. Is it Dawkins opinion that instead of assisted living facilities that once you become incapable of being independent that you should have to be euthanized? The reality is most of us aren’t nearly as independent as we like to think ourselves- and as [...]

    I’m pretty sure that the knuckleheads he has working for him have intertwined them. After all, war is great for the economic doldrums. Why spend money on things like building infrastructure, education, or the citizenry when you can have bright shiny new weapons to use in regions that haven’t been completely depleted of their resources.

    What exactly does that mean? My mother was a single mother of three. Guess why? Her husband died from cancer. Quite frankly, I think only a putz judges someone based on the fact that she is responsible for 5 human beings.

    We’re exceptionally American- that’s why rules don’t apply to us. ;)

    I am so sick of our US military being used as a hammer and every single global problem being a nail.

    There should be some sort of limitation to placing a gun in a child’s hands. I’d argue that if your child isn’t in an age group that is capable of abstract thought and thinks in concrete or if your child will struggle with judging things like space and speed(not safe to cross a street on your own) than perhaps its best that your child not hold something capable of taking life.

    If procreation is the point of marriage then someone should suggest that from here on out that there needs to be fertility tests done and anyone who actually underwent menopause should be expressly forbidden from marriage since you no longer have the ability to procreate.

    The idea that marriage is for procreation is so ridiculous that it literally needs to be mocked.

    60? I remember when the Democrats had a majority of 60- and the head putz in the WH put Olympia Snowe in charge of negotiating health care for the American people. When they had 60, they wanted 67 for a filibuster proof majority. Although I’m pretty sure if they had 67 they’d come up with an excuse as to why they’d need 100 to accomplish anything worthwhile for anyone other than their paymasters.

  • Foreign policy has become far more complex ever since Hillary retired.

    With all due respect Clinton helped create the mess in Ukraine. She chose sides and essentially created hostility with Russia by doing so.

    I voted for her in the primaries in 2008 and thought she got a raw deal in 2008(although I’d argue her supporters got a rawer deal and Hillary landed on her feet.) I won’t be voting for her in 2016. She’s a hawk, and part of the problem, not the solution.

    You could only hope that Norfolk Southern were as concerned about track maintenance as they are about terrorist activity interrupting their train activity. Here in Virginia the latest derailment was an autorack just last month. Luckily it wasn’t chlorine gas. That being said, the rules about reporting suspicious activity did come in useful when one [...]

    It’s definitely not updated. Ours has way more than 22 assault rifles.

    Ours got an MRAP. We started paying closer attention to the expenditures of the local law enforcement after they decided to use our neighborhood as training for SWAT. They used a flashbang on our old neighbors after they suspected drugs were being sold there. The “raid” netted an ounce of pot, a couple of scales [...]

  • Gosh darn it and I bet the stupid Justice League is getting their capes cleaned again.

  • So now the boogeymen in Syria is Russian too? How convenient. *tongue firmly in cheek* Can someone let President Obama know that ISIS is a Sunni backed militant group and it flies in the face of logic that the Shia in Iran are the nefarious group behind them.

    I notice our esteemed leader doesn’t even bother to mention Jordan or Saudi Arabia- I guess giving a shout out to the country from where ISIS’ first leader sprang and or the government that let Bandar decide which rebels to fund in Syria.

    As long as people are consenting adults I don’t understand it either. I think it’s more honest than marrying someone and then running around behind their backs. At least this way all parties no that none of the others believe that monogamy is a natural state.

    It sounds good in theory. Having actually been part of a non profit government run health care system(and responsible for ordering supplies for the medical departments) I can tell you theory doesn’t always translate to real life. That being said, I was a strong proponent of allowing single payer supporters a place at the table (and was a big supporter of a federal public option to compete and keep industry profits in check and ensure that coverage doesn’t have a ton of exemptions or lots of add on costs)because I do think that there needs to be some discussions on what Medicare does and doesn’t do well.

    I have a feeling that with the economic pounding our country was taking that the admin let fear of creating a non profit system that wouldn’t create deficits( because, oh brother, everyone knows that deficits only matter when it comes to providing benefits that help people rather than profits for business or perpetual war)or job losses govern it. The funny thing is that I do believe that in time this type of system would have benefited the country. The for profits would have created products that augment basic coverage and still remained profitable like they are in many other countries. I also think that the “savings” from creating this state- federal partnership is going to be negated by the fees associated with having many different systems and by the lawsuits challenging the law. I’m not a big fan of using the country as a giant petri dish to see which plans work and which don’t a la Medicaid.

    With all due respect, before we had reproductive planning more women died in childbirth than of any other condition. I find THAT thought horrifying. Then again I’m opposed to FORCING someone to give birth. Doing THAT feels Hitleresque.
