'Theft of power' lands electric-car driver in jail
Wed Dec 4, 2013
There are three things about this story that disturb me: 1) I find it interesting that, while they did name a spokesman for the police department, they did not identify the actual police officer involved; 2)
New research disputes fat but fit claim
Mon Dec 2, 2013
Absolutely! I have always felt just a bit of outrage at these standardized formulae for what is healthy with no regard for how much of that body weight is fat as opposed to muscle or what the waist, thigh, wrist, neck measurements might be as factored into that equation. Being fit and healthy is so …
Family disputes gay server's story
Tue Nov 26, 2013
RE: xsoldier @ #1.27 Soldier, the customer is generally presented with a bill which will, when printed from a register station, present just like the final bill. When the customer pays, they will then either get a simple receipt if paying with cash, or two copies of the bill one marked MERCHANT COP …
Fla. teen cleared of cyberbullying: I didn't do 'anything wrong'
Thu Nov 21, 2013
In reply to: David N.-2465637 #123 Mrs. David N, your comments are just as hateful and damaging - to you if not the girls - as their vicious acts. I think a better axiom for you to recall would be, "Let he who is without sin..."
Right flubs Gettysburg story - twice
Tue Nov 19, 2013
In reply to: Bob M-7056869 Bob, read this carefully and try to understand: While it is true Lincoln did affix his signature to the version including the phrase, the words "under God" were not added until some time after the fact, not unlike the Pledge of Allegiance the children used …
One World Trade Center crowned the tallest building in US
Wed Nov 13, 2013
In all fairness, there hasn't been any creativity or architectural artistry of any degree of imagination since... maybe the mid 1800's? It looks pretty much like any other modern architectural 'wonder'. Totally not impressed. Nothing beautiful about it from where I stand. Now, this does not mean tha …
Exclusive: Obama personally apologizes for Americans losing health coverage
Thu Nov 7, 2013
And, in the TSTL category, anybody who thinks the president is responsible for people losing their health insurance. People, health insurance providers do this all of the time! Companies are continually changing their insurance packages. Yes. If an insurance line is substandard, the ACA dictates tha …
Are employers finally helping crack veteran hiring crisis?
Mon Nov 11, 2013
Actually, once upon a time, veterans were guaranteed a job with any employer for whom they worked prior to enlistment. That was a good thing... and needs to be maintained. If someone left a job to go to war then, yes. That job should be there for them when they return home. That, of course, was in t …
Obama applauds budget vote, but says 'a lot of work ahead of us'
Wed Oct 16, 2013
Okay, folks. [and take special note, P M] Just to clarify a few things. The left has been throwing rocks at the right and the right has been throwing rocks at the left. Truth is, there is a hateful fellow named Michael Needham who has actuallyorchestrated this entire debacle. With no regard for the …
Almost a year after Newtown, does anyone care about gun control anymore?
Fri Oct 4, 2013
Skip from Westwood @ #1.6: "Does anyone care about gun control any more? Yes, I think that I do. I still have all of the ex military rifles, carbines, revolvers and pistols that I have collected and yes, I still keep them under my control. That was sort of a silly question, wasn't it?"
