If anyone posting here is truly interested in a solution, tell Congress to fund the fix required byRead More its 2002/2008 law. Then tell them to vote on immigration reform - wipe out ineffective laws and enact what will stop the influx of all illegals at all of our borders and prevent future such crises. Trash talk and personal insults/attacks don't accomplish any good.

No, we don't have enough laws for the nanny state to control us. Nor do we have enough laws to holdRead More people responsible for criminal negligence. Yes, we need another stupid law for the nanny state to control us, because we are too liberal to control ourselves.

In the US, 2010, the following causes of death occurred among children: Motor Vehicle 4,419...Read More Drowning 1,027... Fire/Burn 365... Poisoning 838... Suffocation/Strangulation 1,176... Firearm 134... Last year, more than 200 kids from age 5-14 drowned, and that happened only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. - We're talking about 30 kids per year dying in hot cars, and groups are petitioning the government for funding (naturally), etc. Get a grip folks. Outlaw bee stings and electric hair dryers before you go begging the nanny state to take more control over your life.

Who said anything about a woman? You are obviously trying to start crap lol. Nice try though.Read More Newsflash - we have male teachers and male nurses in 2014... back to what you said about an armed citizen not being able to pull the trigger - my thoughts exactly. A kid is shooting up the school and an armed citizen just might not be able to look at the child and shoot them. Our society doesnt look at children as target practice, so when presented with a child with a gun, I dont buy that the average citizen would shoot a child. So what I get from this back and forth is that you folks have opinions that go back and forth however you like to make a point and then you also like to start crap either that or you cant read. Teachers who cant read.... interesting.

You can never give any government enough money. We could cut taxes everywhere if we just got rid ofRead More all the illegals.
Dave Jennings June 29, 2014 at 03:52 pm
Very short sighted. Yoga and fitness activities contribute to better well being and health.Read More Preventative health care is always less expensive than a trip to the emergency room or a life of chronic ailments caused by lack of exercise, wellness training and stress relief. DC could, by thinking long term vastly improve the general health of its population and significantly reduce public expenditures on public health care by comping memberships in health and wellness institutions for its citizens. Of course, many governments operate on short term thinking rather than looking at the complete picture.
