Black bear sighted in Weston

When will permits for people hunting be issued? We don't mind killing animals when WE deem their populations as invasive but people can breed and over-populate all they want, destroying the environment, sucking up natural resources, and going on murderous rampages against not only their own but any animal species deemed a nuisance. Why is it immorral to kill people but NOT the animals that are so crucial to the entire web of Life?  (Sep 1, 2010 | post #397)

Oil spill slows Alabama island tourism to trickle

Why are Alabama and Mississippi mandating that all cleanup workers be residents of their state(s)? There aren't enough currently HAZWOPER-certified people available in eachc state to work the cleanup. Why turn away certified workers willing to relocate and help?! Do you WANT the crisis to continue and grow larger than it has to? A similar situation is happening with the wildlife rescue. Tri State Bird Rescue & Research has command and control of those allowed to do wildlife rescue/rehab/relea se and they just are NOT bringing on board the thousands of wildlife orgs that have volunteered to help (and have qualified, trained personnel) because they want to use this oil spill for fundraising efforts for their planned expansion (search Delaware Today magazine online for article). How many poor creatures are NOT being saved that could be? How many are dying for politics and fundraising PR rights?  (Jun 1, 2010 | post #30)

in the absence of a public option, it is unconstitutional to force citizens to buy a product/service from a PRIVATE COMPANY.  (Sep 21, 2009 | post #2)

How Will the Stimulus Bill Help You?

Every generation has passed the buck to the next for as long as I can remember. I think it's just the way we operate (for better or worse). I remember my own parents saying the same thing when we were kids.  (Feb 22, 2009 | post #385)

How Will the Stimulus Bill Help You?

More like we are fast becoming a possible entity of China! Did you happen to catch Sec of State Clinton's visit in Beijing? She asked the Chinese to continue to buy our debt (latest from this stimulus) and was disconcerted when the Chinese did not respond. What happens if NO country wants to buy our debt? What happens when the Chinese decide to call in the massive debts they already own?  (Feb 22, 2009 | post #366)

Tax

How Will the Stimulus Bill Help You?

Why can't we? Because the banks aren't lending anymore....to hardly anyone (not even each other), even if you have good credit. They got their money and they're socking it away to balance their books.  (Feb 22, 2009 | post #365)

Tax

How Will the Stimulus Bill Help You?

Won't help our family at all. We don't qualify for anything under the terms. We're not under water on our mortgage; the mortgage isn't 31% or more of our income; we don't get unemployment or any kind of disability, SSI or anything. We don't get W-2's (self employed) but because we've lsot tons of business, our income is substantially lower AND all our savings for retirement, kid's college, etc are fairly well gone from the marlet collapse. We're worried about tax season because since you file for previous year (when we HAD income), we will owe tax but not have any money to pay it! Then you add the insult to injury of us having to bail out banks, businesses, automakers, and now all those people who were irresponsible with their own finances and it's making less and less sense to me how this stimulus helps anyone but those who were greedy or irresponsible.  (Feb 22, 2009 | post #362)

11-Year-Old Boy Charged in Double Homicide

Dad gives 11 yr old shotgun for Xmas. Kid murders Dad's pregnant GF in her sleep. Ok gun rights advocates, tell me how guns don't kill people? Maybe if Dad had given him a toy or a book for Christmas, this wouldn't have happened. Maybe if Dad wasn't ABLE to buy a gun to give to a kid as a gift, this wouldn't have happened!  (Feb 22, 2009 | post #1)

Mom of 14 Accepting Donations Via Web

Wasn't supposed to have posted there but since Topix doesn't give us open access to functions to move stories (only delete), I left it as is. Besides, you ever read the comments after any post on Topix? They're never on topic anyway.  (Feb 12, 2009 | post #3)

Obama hates white people and wants them to die

You can start here: http://clinton4.na ra.gov/WH/new/html /Tue_Oct_24_155324 _2000.html but unless I can find online copies of OMB budgets and books, it will be very difficult to illustrate. I think you are confusing the markets with federal budgets. Not the same animal. And now I must log off because tomorrow I have a deadline on a new freelance project.  (Feb 3, 2009 | post #2316)
