who was suspended for giving a friend a Tylenol once because there is a "zero tolerance" for having even over the counter drugs in schools. And yet, there is no such rule for bullying a student in school. I have to wonder what makes students so mean spirited these days.
"People with pre-existing conditions will be able to get help with a special fund set up to cover the gap until the Insurance Exchanges are up and running."
You can decide to build a building, but after that decision is made, it takes a lot of time, planning, arranging, and work before that building is actually built. It's the same with this health plan. It's going to take awhile before everything is set up to implement all of these changes. And with some changes that will take place over the years, it could be a decade before we are all satisfied with this reform. This is just the beginning.
"what goes around, comes around".
He cheated on and then abandoned his first wife after she stood by him all those years he was a POW. When he got home, he found that she had been in a car accident and was left with a limp. He then started cheating on her with his present wife,Cindy - and then left his wife and their children for Cindy.
Now, he is the one who is being left deserted by his own party. They are turning their backs on him. He's finding out what it feels like to believe he has something to offer, but no one wants him.
Karma. Ain't it a kicker?
liberals. Make love, not war. Tea baggers are just a more radical version of the same old republican ideals of "hate everyone who isn't just like me or who doesn't think just like me".
If I was going to compare them to anyone, I would compare them to white supremacists.
how the religious right can put their claim and God and Jesus, and then do and say some of the most hateful, mean spirited, selfish, greedy, and evil things I've ever heard in my life. Jesus was a liberal. I'm not a believer, and I have come to doubt that the members of the GOP are. They can't possibly cause so much suffering and death and believe there is an afterlife. One thing I strive for, that they know nothing about is, to be ethical.
should be afforded every right that any American citizen can have. It seems more unconstitutional to deny someone their rights just because......of anything. Some turn a blind eye to religious pedophilia in Mormon compounds, but pitch a fit over gay marriage or being honest about sexuality in the armed services. This country sure has a lot of contradictions.
I know that compared to other countries, we are still a young country - but when will we grow up?
gets injured or killed by a right wing fringe member, I think that it will be the end of the republican party. There are so many sound bites that show them instigating violence from both the republican politicians, Fox News, and Limbaugh that they could never really get out from under the stain of what is put right at their door.
We hope that no one gets hurt over this. I would much rather see more people in this country wake up to what the GOP really is and vote accordingly. I'm hoping that a lot of people will find out, as the next two years unfold, that all the lies and misconceptions that the repubs and the right wing news and talk shows have reported, just isn't true. That they have been lied to and taken for fools and realize just who is acting, as best they can, in their best interests.
I divide my time between Lincoln Park and Westbranch.
Love both cities. Michigan is a beautiful state.
don't realize how important unions were to everyone. They set a standard that non union businesses had to at least try to match in order to keep their employees from leaving for union jobs. But, now that the unions have been weakened, non union employers place little value on their employees. Employers know that their workers have no place else to go that will be better.
I know a lot of people hate unions. But, they should stop and consider all the benefits that unions encouraged every employer to give to their employees. The unions have been forced to back off on some of these benefits, and now non union employers have free reign to treat their employees poorly. The government has done a lot to take away from the worker and give it to the already rich business owners, CEOs, and top executives. Forget the little guy---take care of the rich.
Of course, I know that a lot of small businesses cannot stay in business if they pay more or give benefits. These are the businesses that should only hire part time employees who are just working for extra money---not trying to live on low hourly pay.

Mine is one I remember from the old "Laverne and Shirley" show.

Man asks God, "Why did you make women so beautiful?"
God answers, "So men will fall in love with them."
Man asks God, "But, why did you make women so stupid?"
God answers, "So they will fall in love with men."
in Barber, North Carolina.
Just thought I'd give you a heads up on that one.
Since there is proof that driving slower saves on gasoline, why haven't our speed limits been reduced?
"For every mile per hour faster than 55 mph, fuel economy drops by about 1 percent, the drop-off increases at a greater rate after 65 mph. The faster you go, the faster the fuel goes."
Would you be willing to slow down to help global warming and also save money on the gas you use--- and also cut down the loss of life in car accidents by 15%?
On edit: Of course I meant would you drive no faster than 55mph.
