Mar 24th 2013 10:18AM Well, let me put it this way. If, as you say, you don't care what "queers" do, then why are you obsessing about it? And, while you like to believe that you know what "god" wants, some of us are not that arrogant to even pretend what "god" or "gods" know and want. How did you arrive at the conviction that you can?

Sep 4th 2012 9:16PM The outside is rather unusual but it is interesting. On the other hand, the inside (at least from the pictures shown) is almost intolerable, both as to color and clutter. But then, I am not an "expert" in such things and someone must have liked it if they chose to have it built, furnished and live in it.
Dec 6th 2011 5:06PM Yes, there are many self-centered and selfish people in this nation. But, that is what happens when materialism is what they really worship and the standard the use to measure not only themselves, but everyone else as well.
Dec 6th 2011 5:02PM President Obama has nothing to do with this. Anyone who is mired in an ideology or seeking to blame "someone" realizes this. What we are looking are selfish and self-centered individuals, pretty much what describe the Tea Party crowd; i.e. also those referred to as representing the "ME" generation mentality also known as the the "Me, Here, and Now" crowd. Scratch the surface of such people and you will find that most of them are totally devoid of any type of personal, never mind social conscience.
May 23rd 2011 6:22PM Fascinating. I wonder how many Schwarzenegger Republicans still want the U.S. Constitution change such that he can run for President. Is that so long ago? Seem like yesterday.
Feb 2nd 2011 3:38PM What is quite obviousl in many of the posts is that many are not doing any thinking whatsoever, in particular those on what seems to be the "right." That explains the emotional nature of their responses; i.e. "I feel", "I don't like", etc. Perhaps they have had "facts" interpreted for them all of their lives, or for so long, that they can no longer do so. Most of them, it is sad to say, cannot see, never mind interpret anything save through their own ideologies. And, while we all suffer from that to one extent or another, intelligent and thinking people will at least make an attempt to do so. Failing in that, one can only conclude that one is thinking like a child or adolescent; i.e. displaying intellectual and emotionaal immaturity. Unfortunately, that is what most posts to most articles appearing on-line consist of.
Sep 17th 2010 7:19PM "You know the country is really in trouble when the clowns and jesters take over the political process. Lord help us!"
But then, it was taken over by "jesters" quite a long time ago, and by none other than Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, Beck et. al. What's a few more. At least the Stewart and Colbert are humorous at times. What can be said about the other group of "jesters" on the other side.
Aug 6th 2010 1:11PM Personal secrets are of no concern to some of us one way or another unless they reflect on the public character of the individual involved. Otherwise it is personal. Those who obsess about such things, and engage in discussing it "ad nauseam" are mere gossips whose emotional and intellectual rudders are out of the water, rather like (some of us believe) is Sarah Palin.
Aug 1st 2010 12:17PM The childishness of some comments on this article, as we find on most boards does notthing but indicate that many do not understand the issues but base their opinions only on what they have "personally" experienced. Such is the case with both programs, Social Security and unemployment benefits. Both programs were created for the pupose of helping those in need, and not "I put in and I get out, whether I have a need or not." Some of the arguments posted would indicate that such is the way many have come to believe. Some of us would describe that as exhibiting a total lack of social conscience on the part of such individuals.
One other program, one that most individuals creating "posts" that reflect that "me" mentaility are not familiar with (most never having served in the military as they had "other priorities"), is the VA benefits program. In certain categories, 7 & 8, there is an annual "means test" which some of us veterans do not at all mind submitting ourselves to. So, what is the problem with "means tests" being required for both unemployment benefits and Social Security? There is no logical reason for not having one, except for those who are lacking in social conscience and have a totally materialistic standard and afflicted with not immorality but amorality.
Some of us, during our entire working lives paid both unemployment and social security. But, we realized that we were paying for those in need, and not "socking away" funds for ourselves or as a "retirement plan." We were paying for the elderly and "hurting" who did not have the wherewithal to live in a dignified manner, and would have sunk into homelessness and destitution if not assisted. That, in most likelihood, includes the parents and/or grandparents of some who argue that millionaires and billionaires are "entitled" to both, unemployment and Social Security only because they "paid in."
Some of us have a very difficult time accepting that argument as that reflects little but the "me" mentality or, I want all the benefits of living in this country but want to live here without recognizing or accepting any obligations but to myself.
