Welcome to life, baby

I made 15k less, cry me a river

Do we still blame Bush or are we blaming Regan now? Maybe the Koch brothers. Who the hell's in charge now?? Maybe those dam House Republicans are to blame? I'm so confused... I'm just gonna blame whoever my leaders tell me to

Hmmm....so if I jump into the front seat of a cab being driven by a female, pull my underwear off and play with my c0<#, start groping her crotch, and try to talk her into having sex with me, I shouldn't get charged with a crime? I should only be embarrassed by my behavior? Damn. Hot bitches just live in a different reality.

Women like this are the reason that assault and rape victims are so often dismissed. Here's a tip - keep your clothes on and your hands to yourself, unless you are with your SO.

It is probably a good idea for cabbies to insist that passengers fill the back seat before allowing anyone to sit in the front passenger seat. People are crazy, esp when they have been drinking.

Is this news anywhere else? Isn't this exactly what the Democrats have been demonizing the Koch brothers for when they financed the Tea Party? I don't support either movement, but I hate hypocrisy.

Good morning Chicago. Up here in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, we are supposed to get up to 10 inches of snow. Did I fall asleep and miss summer??

I don't do politics. Don't know who the Koch brothers are(is one of them Ed?). Would not have even stopped at the headline were it not for your link. That being said, just based on the article, I see this as recognizing your stategy is failing and therefore trying to adapt your game to what your opponent is doing.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Sounds like he's trying to do what's worked for his opponent. Fight fire with fire.

He is only challenging the NRA's firm grip on Congress.....not quite the same thing, do you think?....

Did you actually read the article? It specifically stated he was being criticized by Democratic leaders for this. Also, the Democratic Party has no control over what issues private individuals decide to spend their own money on.

Due to budget cuts, spring is no longer available in the Midwest. You need to travel south

Tipping the exterminator?

Sounds quaint, like giving the hangman a coin to do his job well.

I didn't say he was being supported by the Dems. The Repubs didn't support the Tea Partiers, either (which is the main reason there is such a rift in the GOP).

The Democratic Party feels pretty strongly that individuals should not be allowed to spend so much of their money on political issues.

The second amendment is part of our Constitution and while I don't always agree with the NRA, they have a right to their views. He is not just challenging the NRA's affect on Congress, he is spending a lot of money in an effort to limit the rights of American citizens.

I don't know how familiar y'all are with Michael Bloomberg's terms as Mayor of NYC. He thinks that he knows more than his constituents and it is his responsibility to make lifestyle decisions for them. He tried to ban the sale of sodas and other sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces in NYC.

We cannot allow the government or the wealthy to take away our freedom of choice and our rights.

They make a decent argument for tipping your regular exterminator, but the dry cleaner?!

A relative recently asked if they were supposed to tip the labor and delivery nurses. I think it has gotten way out of hand.

Do you have any idea how much the NRA spends on lobbying?
