11 Ottawa County stores caught selling alcohol to minors ...

Bonds, parents ought to be the ones who introduce their children to proper alcohol use. I bought a case of beer last December and still have 2 or three beers in the house if parents model responsible alcohol use the children will take notice. I don't have a daughter bonds for the record.  (Nov 25, 2010 | post #14)

This has nothing to do with the democrats. This has to do with republicans stopping democrats from going insane.  (Nov 18, 2010 | post #2)

Federal report: U.S. hunger remains at highest levels in ...

Bonds you are right I have made BAD choices in what I have eaten in the past and I realize that every day when I am on the treadmill or counting my weightwatchers points, but the fact is I paid for those bad choices not the American taxpayer. I bought the unhealthy food that I used to eat in the past with my money. I agree completely that government should NOT tell people what to buy with their money, but when the American people are footing the bill they should have a right to determine what is purchased with the foodstamp card.  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #20)

Federal report: U.S. hunger remains at highest levels in ...

Bonds, I don't drink soda or eat tv dinners they are fattening and very bad for your heart. I almost have no sugar in my lifestyle at all, Bonds, and eat very little ice creme. The bridge card should only be used for non processed foods and foods people have to prepare from scratch. People who pay for food with their own money have a right to buy whatever they want, but people who are being supported by the taxpayer can be expected to spend our tax dollars wisely and not blow it on junk food.  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #15)

Disco, the problem is it isn't government's function to feed anyone. If there was a way we could stop folks from buying frivolous stuff with foodstamps I would be less opposed to the program. It sickens me when I go to the store and see people buying soda, icecreme, candy, tv dinners, etc with foodstamp cards. I do believe government should help those who truly can't work, but we need to have some serious reforms.  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #8)

Nearly 59 million lack health insurance: CDC

Bonds, Europe is taking austerity measures now. Single Payer systems have helped ruin the economies of France, Greece, England, etc. But besides that it isn't government's function to provide health insurance.  (Nov 12, 2010 | post #20)

A letter to progressives.

Violence, ad hom attacks that is all you lefties have? Liberals don't have ideas unless you call stealing from those who have and giving to those who won't work ideals. 41 million americans are on food stamps and the democrats have controlled congress since 2006 and the white house since 2008. 3.1 trillion added to the deficit since 2008 President Bush has been long gone. This failed economy belongs to the democrats. I understand why you progressives are angry. The American people are rejecting unions, socialize healthcare, progressive taxation (theft), right before your very eyes. I understand why you are angry. Your progressives hopes and dreams are dying. There isn't going to be single payer, we aren't going to soak the rich, and we aren't going to a society of so call equality that progressives are longing for. There won't be any employee free choice act, there won't be any election reform, and Obama's presidency is over. You won't get anything and like it. I understand why you progressives are so angry. Obama lied and swindled you guys. You poor lefties on election day 2008 were so filled with hope and Obama took that hope and defecated on it. I am grateful to Obama. Obama helped the republican party become more conservative, and the American people are totally blaming the democrats and President Obama for all the woes hitting our country right now. And my dear progressives do you really think Obama is going to veer towards the left after he gets his ass handed to him on November 2? But even more than watching Obama's presidency die I am watching the progressive movement die in this country. Feingold is toast, Grayson one of progressives most vocal champions is down 13 points in Florida now. On November 2nd I am going to see the progressive movement die. After November 2nds horrible defeat the progressive wing and the centrist wing of the democratic party are going to have a suicidal civil war I am already seeing it on websites like alternet.org and moveon.org and it is a sight to behold. I understand why you lefties do the ad hom attacks and threaten violence because you don't have an agenda to run on. We are 11 days until Armageddon day for the progressive movement in this country and all the left can do is run ads saying "Bush is bad and is to blame for everything." Brilliant strategy from the left way to go progressive team! You guys can't run on any programs. The American people don't want single payer, they don't want cap and trade, they don't support your environmental issues. Your party has nothing the American people want. I see why you liberals are so angry. When the returns on election night show democrat after democrat biting the dust just remember this progressives the American people hate your ideas and your vision.  (Oct 22, 2010 | post #1)
