<quoted text> i realize there are more whites on welfare. Never said there wasn't. Welfare and food stamps for a lot of people are a way of life for generations. Perhaps getting rid of the oppressive tax code and allowing people to keep their money and grow wealth is a better idea than socialism.
I am not in favor of long term welfare; I am in favor of a society that provides a safety net for those who fall on hard times to help them get on their feet.

What are you talking about? The old man followed after them and shot them. If he felt threatened, he should have driven off.
That guy wasn't old or helpless. What a travesty; and if we are going to reward this type of behavior; it will never end.
BTW, that other killer who murdered that boy in Jacksonville because those kids were playing loud music is charged with first degree murder.
Punks who pick fights are sometimes surprised when the victim stands up to them...in this case they (maybe) learned a lesson without serious consequences...

the jury obviously disagreed with you...

We all came from that generation; those were the days when most of our mothers didn't work outside the home. Although I used cloth diapers on my first child; hanging them out in the sun bleaches them. The problem with cloth diapers is that they retain moisture and keep the skin wet which causes more skin irritations like diaper rash.

Try taking this smart pill. Smart people align themselves with those that try to make things better. Mistakes are part of progress, you learn from them, adjust and forge ahead. Only losers let mistakes deter them. Progressives make things happen, they change the world.
Cowards are afraid to try anything new, they expect failure because they have failed so often. These whiners offer nothing. They have no ideas and try to pull themselves up by dragging others down.
Learn from Obama, don't be a loser all your life.
"Mistakes are part of progress, you learn from them, adjust and forge ahead.......Learn from Obama".

I have. Obama is the mistake and I am learning from it.

I suggest that you do the same, Pollyanna.

It was a good sized industry back in the day and a very common shower gift.
Amazing the conveniences and comforts of an era when men earned a bit over a hundred bucks per week while their wives stayed home and diddled the Fuller Brush men.
3 cent postage stamps back then and when they jumped to a nickle you'd have thought the fkn world was going to end.
And our mothers ordered from the Sears catalog!

The President isn't playing on municipal golf courses; most private golf courses make you use a cart; I agree that walking is better, I don't know why it isn't allowed; unless it's changed again.
Most private golf courses absolutely do not require you to use a cart, although they may charge the cart fee regardless....

The best private courses still use caddies instead of or in addition to golf carts.

ObamaKKKare is committing suicide....we are watching as the plan comes together...
Wishful thinking. We are only hearing from a couple of disgruntled people who were under-insured and are ignoring the FACT that they may very well qualify for tax subsidies to offset premium increases. Rethug tactics are laughable.

The ACA will survive just as Bush's Medicare Part D prescription plan did. You remember..the one with the confusing mess of a website that wasn't up and running upon implementation?

FACT: Most Democrats voted against Medicare Part D. However, they did not turn around and sue the Bush administration or go to the Supreme Court to get it invalidated.

Hillary Clinton at the time: "I voted against it, but once it passed I certainly determined that I would try to do everything I could to make sure that New Yorkers understood it, could access it, and make the best of it." That is a rational adult response. You people need to grow up.

It is a time factor. However no course requires you to drive that I know of. Even Kings Mill and the TPC Virginia Beach allow you to walk.

Nobody was seriously injured, and the so-called victims were looking for trouble:
It started when Tover, heading north on Judge Winikoff Road, steered his silver Cadillac XLR convertible with the top down in front of Alexandra Nisall's black Hyundai Accent.
Nisall testified Tover was going too slow so she honked at him three times. Tover came to a complete stop, opened his door and began to step out, she said.
Tover said: "They literally tried to run me off the road."
Papero said Nisall braked, then drove around and past Tover, while Perriello made a gesture with his arms. Nisall made a right turn from Winikoff to Glades Road, and headed east.
While Nisall was stopped in the left lane for a red light at Diego Drive, Tover pulled up next to her in the right lane.
Perriello was cursing and "started coming out of the window,'Dukes of Hazzard' stuff," Tover told the detectives. "I didn't hesitate to squeeze off a few rounds."
Sounds wonderful. Expect a lot more of these incident with these 'Stand your ground laws' and what have you. Whatever ever happened to common decency? I blame rightwing talk radio, Fox News, Tea Baggers in general.

I've read/seen where cloth diapers are making a comeback. The annual cost advantage of cloth vs disposable is mind blowing.
Cloth Diaper manufacturers have designed some really neat stuff to compete with the disposable industry like elastic edges to seal leakage, color designs, water-proof fabric linings, etc.
And it's all re-usable.
Washers and dryers are the difference now versus then__actually versus Pamper$ cloth makes sense.

I wonder where one buys diaper pins these days.
