  1. I see you didn't bother to improve your reading comprehension and decided instead to make incorrect inferences from my statements. Whatever. Go back under your bridge. I remember now why I stopped spending any time on this forum. -PM
  2. For all you wonderful geniuses that are telling me I am stupid, or should get off my A$$ and go pick up my daughter, please re-read my post, and use your language skills. I clearly said in my post that the school was telling the children that the roads were passable, and that parents can get to the school. My point was that IF the main roads are passable, it would make more sense to send a bus to the main entrances of subdivisions. If the main roads are NOT passable, then of course I want her to stay at the school where it is safe and warm. If you think I want her in a bus on unsafe r
  3. My daughter is one of the students stuck at N. Paulding HS, and she texted to tell us that the school is telling them that they aren't even going to run buses today to get them home. If the parents can't get them, they are stuck. WTH? If the main roads get treated, the buses could at least get the kids to subdivision entrances. Most of the subdivisions are iced in, as ours is, so parents can't get out. But the buses could get them to within walking distance. This is ridiculous. -PM
  4. So far, we have seen the shooting in CT blamed on the following: Assault weapons Failed mental healthcare in the country Lack of security in schools Moral degradation of society in general Violent influences of media And probably a few others I am missing. But how about this as a possibility? There are just some screwed up people in this world, and they have the capacity to use WHATEVER they can to inflict the most casualties in order to fulfill their deranged desires. If that is the problem, there really isn't a dang thing we can do to stop it. It's not like it is an epidemi
  5. To be honest, I didn't go up high enough to see his post. But figured why not give ya a little tweak since you asked? -PM
  6. Yeah, that contributes to rational discussion. Way to keep it intelligent. -PM
  7. Fortunately, our rights and freedoms are not determined by only what we "require", because that would then mean the government has to decide what it is we "require" in order to be free, and I don't think any of us wants that. -PM
  8. There are obviously some medical conditions that can cause or contribute to significant weight gain, but I think it is disingenuous to take the stance that people should be "sensitive" to fat people in general. Being fat is not a "medical condition", it is a result of choices. As someone that was morbidly obese for a time, I know what it is like to have your life ruled by food, but I also know that it is a product of the lifestyle choices we make, and the general lack of willpower by most Americans when it comes to changing your life. If she had a medical condition that led to this, I feel f
  9. How many of your courses discussed how easy it is to manipulate polls, both in the creation phase, as well as the interpretation phase? I took several of the same types of courses when obtaining my poli sci degree, and poll/survey manipulation was a common concern. -PM
  10. I'm with you 100% on the importance of the economy and the policies needed to fix it, but you are wrong with the above statement. Those things are exactly what kept Romney from winning the white house, along with the GOP stance on illegal immigrants. -PM
  11. I am still a Republican by necessity until a 3rd party (Libertarian) candidate becomes viable. But I will say that unless the Republican party as a whole steps back from some of their more divisive and asinine social stances such as gay marriage, aboortzion, and handling the multitudes of illegals already in this country, we may not win another election for awhile. Conservative Republican values regarding the economy and the free market will beat Democratic government solutions every time. But by alienating all gays, hispanics, and women, there is no chance. Allowing two gay people to marry
  12. You were ok, except for this part. We don't need government to be our nannies. Let adults make decisions for themselves. -PM
