Re: Oil Rig Explosion

The latest report says that the oil could reach the Atlantic and move north up the coast. I don't think it matters who the get input from at this point. They could ask Paul how he and John were going to fix the hole in the ocean for that matter. (a Beatle reference for you younger ones. 8) ) Just FI...

Re: Breast cancer vaccine tests on humans to begin next year

Marie, I'm so glad you brought this up. This is some very positive news about this deadly disease. My mother died from complications after a three year battle with breast cancer. She fought with more courage and grace than I could ever have. If they get a vaccine ready for testing, I will be happy t...

Re: Baseball: KO discusses controversial call last pm in Det

Here's another famous blown call by an umpire. Don Denkinger knows a thing or two about what Jim Joyce is going through. Denkinger, whose questionable call at first base in Game 6 of the 1985 World Series helped the Kansas City Royals come back to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, said that he supports ...

Re: Oil Rig Explosion

The latest attempt to stop the oil from gushing into the gulf has been unsuccessful, and now BP is saying it may be August before they can stop it. And what if that does not work? I think it is time for the government to take control of the situation. BP, you've had your chance and failed. Top scien...

Re: Glenn Beck Goes After Malia Obama

I certainly did not bash the Palin children, I was referring to the way Sarah exploits her children to get attention. They would not be constantly be in the news if she did not keep putting them there. Explain how she "puts them out there"? And how is that different than what Obama does? ...

Re: Glenn Beck Goes After Malia Obama

I don't know what "side" you think that I'm on, but as I originally stated, I think it is wrong for any "side" to attack families, especially children. Then you went on to bash the palin family. I don't like them but, you did exactly what you said you were against. You know whic...

Re: Glenn Beck Goes After Malia Obama

An attack by the media of any politician's family, or any celebrity's family member for that matter, is WRONG!!! It was wrong in the past, and it still is today. It is reprehensible and inexcusable. That being said, there are cases where a member of the family makes news on their own, such as a run...

Re: GWB RIP (politically)

BBilly, I don't know how long its been since you've been in the work force, but today, people are forced out of their jobs before they get close to 62, much less holding on to them until they turn 68! Companies don't want the older employees around because they usually have to pay them more, so they...

Is anyone else besides me starting to get really alarmed by this? I mean, at what point does our existence become at risk due to the damage that is taking place in the gulf on an hourly basis? :shock:

I have a Health Care Bill question

The subject that just won't rest....Health Care. A co-worker told me that her doctor was unhappy about the new health care bill because it limits how much he (the doctor) can charge per visit. :-s I don't find any thing about that in what I have read, but to be honest, I have not read the entire bil...

Re: Arizona "Papers Please" Law

The proponents of this legislation say it won't be executed based on racial profiling, and yet no one can explain what the criteria would otherwise be for suspecting someone of being illegal! I think shoes were mentioned. Maybe shirts and pants too. In Missouri, it could very well be a babushka tha...

Re: The MSNBC Really Sucks Thread

I wish they would re-run some of Rachel's, Keith's or Chris' shows on the weekend, instead of Lock Up (which I can't believe anyone really watches). I record Keith during the week at the 12:00 central time slot, to avoid any conflict with my family's prime time shows. Usually works out well, but som...

Re: Arizona "Papers Please" Law

One of the dangers of this law is that it is spreading. A councilman in Missouri, Joe Brazil, has proposed legislation to support the Arizona imigration law. I can see where Missouri might need tougher immigration, what with all those illegals coming across the border from Arkansas. While I don't ha...
