    A woman can be forced to have a child, but she cannot be forced to be a mother. The pro-birth position you espouse will result in many unwanted children. How many are you willing to adopt 20 – 30? More? Are you willing to pay more taxes to support these unwanted children? No? You don’t want to pay for someone elses’s problem? Well, I’m sick to goddamn death of paying for wars that I don’t want.

    Why the charade of planning what to do. We all know, same as before – bail out. The rich must not lose.

    “For these corporate industrialized fascists, the end justifies the means.”
    One could easily subsitute the US for the Nazis in this instance, as well as lying as a way to start a war.

    I admire your positive and optimistic attitude. However, there is a big difference between 50 something and 60 something. Let’s see how you feel in 10 years.

    If memory serves me correctly, the majority of the alledged 9-11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia. Isn’t that what the US originally went over there for, to exact revenge for the attacks? So what the hell is the US doing bombing all these other countries.
    But, yeah, Tunisia will be next.

    Thanks, nonquixote, I appreciate the thought. Our county board of supervisors have a history of green-lighting these types of operations in the past (all GOP). Also bear in mind that I’m dealing with the Amish community. Although a few have expressed to me that they’re not happy about the CAFO, they do tend to close [...]

    Well, this is disappointing. For a renovation this seems rather plain. How about a nice pastel paint, a nice border, and some drapes for a more dramatic effect.
    If this is supposed to be a more humane way to be put to death, there seems to be a helluva lot of restraints.
    I’d have thought that maybe Oklahoma would not have been quite so proud of this disgraceful spectacle and not given it so much publicity.

    You’re absolutely right – as I sit here and type, I have a CAFO of between 60-75 baby calves just over the fence. I have raised all kinds of hell, written to everyone I can think of, contacted every agency I can think of and unless the problem is happening to them, they don’t give [...]

  • While the GDP in the US may be 7.6% higher than in 2008, I don’t know anyone that is rolling around naked in $100. bills. People are still living paycheck to paycheck, if they have a paycheck at all. Food, medical expenses, utilities, and until recently, gasoline were all making times tougher for workers and [...]

    As far as living in a democracy(?) where less than half of eligible voters vote to choose their leaders, we have a uni-party system. Both parties look out for the 1% and their own self interests so what the hell is the point? In 2016 we will have Hillary, a Wall Street whore, and whatever [...]

    Wonder how much Koch money has suddenly been poured into this race. My guess is an assload. Also guess that Orman is one of them there “new Denmocrats” that love lowering taxes for corporations and loves the hell out of free trade deals. So does it really matter?

    I can demand to hell and back and it won’t change anything, My rep. is a gerrymandered, tea party queen (Jackie Walorski). I may as well piss in the wind. I stand a better chance getting the pony.

    I’ve shopped Salvation Army as well. Got a fall/winter jacket for $1.00 about 3 years ago, it’s held up quite well and am still wearing it. Bet ya can’t get a jacket at the W store that will last that long. Also got some jeans at Goodwill which I’m still wearing.

    I don’t get it either, Ruth. I’m not much of a consumer anymore, don’t need much “stuff” at my age, and couldn’t afford it anyway on Soc. Sec. Just basic living expenses pretty much eats that up. I’ve found second hand stores and garage sales to be acceptable substitutes for some things.

    A new Costco is set to open soon about 40 minutes away. Am looking forward to checking it out, especially cat food, litter, and treats for my “girls”. I understand they at least pay their employees a decent wage.

    This isn’t the first shitty thing Walmart has done nor will it be the last. Many people are aware of this yet continue to trudge daily by the millions into this wretched damn place. Just as with fast food workers striking for better wages, people continue to patronize these places. I’m afraid the simple truth is people in general just don’t give two shits about their fellow human beings. And don’t think for a second that the gov’t would even entertain raising taxes on these obscenely rich pigs at the trough.
