Cocalico Police: "poor J...

The cops are worried about disturbing the peace and creating a backlash from drivers. So of course they make the issue taboo from the bicyclist's point of view. This is a place where the person with the biggest rig scares the little people out of her way, and bloodshed for bicycles and buggies is treated as normal. The people who do bicycle do not have the kind of money for a training course. It's too bad it has to be the kids. Don't put them in organized sports. Get them to join the Scouts and get the cycling badge. (Also, teaching them to be very yielding would be good--brakes won't slow em down in time; gotta use the feet, and GET OFF THE BIKE when crossing an intersection with cars!)  (Sep 18, 2008 | post #1)

Choice turns heads in Pennsylvania

You're right...I've been basing a lot of my response on my own narrow college experience. I don't really have that much contact with teen moms, just older moms who take college really seriously. I'm just wondering how they feel about Obama as a male, not as a black male, in deference to Palin, a female, not as a white female, or Hillary. I guess they would still feel the same way, because they still want the same thing, and they still think they can get it from Obama.  (Sep 13, 2008 | post #102)

Anger Over Penile Surgery Prompted Mail Bomb

Well, well. It appears that everyone thinks that a doctor is a doctor is a doctor. Not so. The Occupational Outlook Handbook salary reads $150,000. That's if you work for Highmark-Blue Shield or another HMO/PPO that eliminates as many patients and possible. Patients literally write a check to move to the next desk in the building. But if you want to be a real doctor you go for the experience, which means you accept very sick patients on Medicare or those that have no money, including those that keep coming but refuse your orders. Then you make about $20,000--poverty level, and you practically have no free time from the billing. It takes years of work to get some patients to stop smoking or eat right. But if you believe in God, it's worth it, and you don't have to do any immoral surgeries.  (Sep 12, 2008 | post #10)

Young women are more likely to vote for Palin. I still have a feeling that it's a smaller 50+ age group of women who support abortion to the hilt that would have voted for Hillary. Women between 18 and 35 are probably more likely to vote for Palin if they are young mothers or want to get pregnant during their teens for attention. However, any difficulty could be avoided if parents were able to parent like before, or much less likely, if good foster parents could be obtained from a pool of volunteers, i.e. Big Brothers/Big Sisters. One way to protect your kids is don't have any media in the house and never take them shopping. Throw the TV set away, load them with Bible and chores that you can verse them on. As soon as you have that TV going, you should be aware that family-oriented television is being jam-packed with sex, crime, parodies on mental illness, and other mature topics. Watch it with the kids and then talk through it. Gilmore Girls is a big culprit--Rory should have gotten pregnant at the end for having sex with Dean, for example. Kyle XY wasn't simply checking to see if the girl had a bellybutton or not--he was checking her out! A show in which the protagonist's life is in danger is also not appropriate for all ages. ABC, NBC, and CBS are owned by Disney. In addition, over 20 stations are owned by FOX's Rupert Murdoch. Just because they support Republicans doesn't mean they're conservative. If you've a V-Chip, don't let them watch anything except C-SPAN(which shows boring government debates). I won't touch the PBS/Sesame Street controversy--I grew up on a totally different non-character oriented version that was written without excess fluff(and one of the founders was a woman) and was mostly about human beings who made rational decisions.  (Sep 12, 2008 | post #100)
