• This makes our healthcare system look like pikers.

    Shouldn’t someone be screaming bloody murder about this? Our congresspersons or the media maybe.

    Thanks for your professional “eye”, things I hadn’t noticed. And keep on wearing that hat!

    I would hesitate to call this a documentary, I would call it more of a professional promotion.

    I think this young woman could have put her time to a much better use. Perhaps working in a soup kitchen or volunteering in an animal shelter. Something other than narcisstic self promotion. She proved nothing that was not already known by generations of people.

    No, no nuns as teachers, just soul-crushing proverty and it went down hill from there.

    As a 60 something old gal, whose center of gravity has been a rather cruel bitch, I’d be happy with a compliment as well.

    Have a good day, all.

    I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I didn’t think she was ‘all that’. Still don’t understand why she did it. Was it to reinforce her opinion of herself that she’s still ‘hot’?

    I used to work around a lot of men and I probably could have been accused of sexual harassment. I gave as good as I got. And hell, yeah, I’d probably issue forth a cat call if I saw Mathew McConahaugh (sp).

    Well, nomolus, here’s the deal and it won’t make any sense.
    I have a bit of an anger management problem, (actually more of a blind rage problem), had it all my life. For some reason I have to maintain a certain level of anger to feel alive, and faux news supplies that fix. Especially “the five”, so much ignorance on one program.

    I make light of this, but it really is a rather troublesome problem. I’ve tried every drug, both illegal and legal, and have drank copious amounts of alcohol. Nothing much helps. The saw bones says it’s sorta like PTSD because my life in general has not been especially blessed.

    An actor, huh. So who the hell hired her and what was the point? When I saw this on teevee yesterday I wondered why anyone would walk around for 10 hours. As to be expected, Fox News concentrated on the segment with a young black man walking beside her.

  • Considering the trillions that have been spent on all these damn wars, not including hidden, unaccounted for money, and the fact that Americans tend to waste about 40% of their food, there should be plenty of money and food to feed every hungry person on earth.

    There is a commercial running in this area promoting Koch Industries and all the products they are involved in making. Tomorrow I intend to find out what all they’re involved in and never touch another damn thing they’re connected to.

    If I were a religious person, I would hope that the hottest corner in a place called hell is reserved for the Kochs.

    When a society intentionally turns it’s guns on children, that socienty can’t fall much further. And still we have people like the asshole pictured above that wants even more guns with less regulation.

    Just sickening – speechless.

    Thanks for the chuckle. An illegal with ebola, oh my god, the humanity.)

    Medical malpractice is something neither party wants to discuss, (Except behind closed doors and how to lower the caps on it.)

    Gotta run, have a good day everyone.

    I remember reading somewhere that 100,000 people die each year from some sort of medical error. That seems rather important to me, but no one bothers to mention that either.

    No need to apologize for the mental image, I’ve seen cancer up close and personal way too many times. I relive it everyday.

    At least people with money are using a bit of their bazillions to do some damn good for something, instead of buying legislation and judges to make themselves even richer.

    I would love to see pictures of your kittens.

    I hate to sound harsh, but why does breast cancer get so much more publicity than other types of cancer. Cancer is Cancer. It is horrible, it is ugly. Is it because breasts are involved and the men that run the world love breasts?

    Hang in there, liberalarts, I too have been on the receiving end of some pretty snarkish, condescending, shitty comments as well, but overall, most are thoughtful. Not many liberals of our breed left anymore, so we gotta stick together. Ignore the rude and appreciate the civility of the rest. (Wow, I said something positvie, that [...]

    Yes, I’ve read great things about Costco, thanks for the links as well. You’ll never find me in a Sam’s or Walmart, the Walton’s have enough.

    Thanks, ms molly, for writing this. It has lifted my spirits, which have been sagging a bit lately.

    Hi reader, good to ‘see’ you as well. I don’t check in as often as I used to; feeling a tad demoralized and disenfranchised as the wingnuts seem to gain ground and the Democratic party veers further and further to the right. Just seems hopeless at times. I hope you and Ms. Colette are both [...]

    You touched a soft spot when you mentioned Southern Dragon. I loved his It’s Caturday masterpieces. When I lost my beloved Michelob, that I’d had for 19 years, the outpouring of condolences I received from the folks at FDL was touching. I’m going to run out of money before month for this month (property taxes), [...]

    One would think that a bastion of democracy like Faux News would be promoting voting. Yesterday on “The Five” Kim Guilfoyle stated that young women should just stay home and not vote because they lack the wisdom and life experiences to make decisions on voting.

    I’m far from young but I have a few choice words for the tramps and assholes that Fox employs and pretends that they’re journalists.

    Liberals have stood around with their thumbs up their asses and allowed Ronnie Raygun and the GOP to define them. Liberals then used, I guess what they considered a more forward thinking term, and called themselves progressives. Well, guess what, the same damn thing happened. Liberals, progressives, socialists, communists were all lumped together, while no [...]

    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.
