The Christian religion is founded by a psychotic act

Look back through history Cranky and tell me how many Christians allowed others to "live and let live"... Just because the shoe is on the other foot does not mean that you can take the "woe is me" or Rodney King "why can't we all get along" stance to justify your religion...  (Oct 11, 2012 | post #5)

Time Warner Cable

Much like Time Warner, AT&T will be cheaper initially, but once your package deal runs out (6 months, 1 year, etc.) you will have to pay full price. This sounds like what happened with Time Warner. I had free movie channels for 3 months and when that 3 months ran out I had to start paying for them if I wanted to keep them. Just be aware of how long your price/bundle package is good for before you sign up with them, plus, they don't offer the fast speed that you can get from the cable company.  (Oct 9, 2012 | post #14)

True Republicans

I want to take a moment here to talk about the 800 pound gorilla in the room: To ask why the GOP has allowed itself to be hijacked by extremists who aren’t Republican at all. At their core, Republicans are for smaller government. That means LESS governmental intrusion into our lives, our affairs, our money. Consistently applied, this is a sound and important philosophy that acts as a counterweight to wasteful government spending, excessive taxation, and Big Brother intrusiveness. It is a “live and let live” attitude. Good people may disagree respectfully whether more or less government is needed in areas such as healthcare and education, whether a larger military or more international intervention is needed, and whether we should cut taxes on the wealthy or raise them. I personally can completely understand the economic rationales behind the GOP platform, even if I don’t think we should retry them right now. What I simply can’t understand is why the GOP ignores the gorilla in their tent when it comes to social issues. For a party that prides itself on less government intrusion, it sure seems busy these days telling women and LGBT persons what they can and cannot do. This is not only inconsistent, it is a poor strategy for keeping the party strong, growing, and current. If religious fundamentalists want to push their extremist agendas, they should do it in some other party, so that I don’t have sit there in awkward conversations with my Republican friends, secretly wondering how they can continue to pander to such drivel. It would be as if the Democrats suddenly had their ranked filled by hard-core Communists who steadily called upon the total abolishment of private business. (And no, that’s not what Obamacare does, notwithstanding the rhetoric. You may disagree with the individual mandate, but it’s not a government take-over, it’s a tax–as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court himself concluded.) If someone like Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez showed up at a Democratic Party function and waved Mao’s little red book around, I would say, “Sorry, I know Democrats. I’ve worked for years with Democrats. You’re no Democrat. And you can’t sit with us.” It’s time for true Republicans to regain control of their party. For Republicans who believe in a woman’s right to choose not to have to pretend that they don’t. For those who believe that two people who love each other should be allowed to get married, who the hell cares, to say so. And for those who would like to see more Ron Pauls and fewer Mike Huckabees to stand up and say, “Actually, WE’RE the real Republicans. Now get off our lawn.” Wouldn’t that be a Grand Old time again? — GT  (Sep 7, 2012 | post #1)

Recent breakup

First off, sorry about the breakup. Now, to give you the advice you seem to need right now. I have been thru many breakups, divorces and death in my life and here is what i have learned. It is going to hurt, you put a lot into that person and now they are no longer there. No getting around it, it is going to hurt. Happiness is not something someone else can give you, it can only come from inside. No matter how much money, possessions or family/friends you have around you, only YOU can bring about the happiness you seek. Ending a relationship is about the same as trying to quit smoking or drinking, You will have to change your life. you need to figure out what triggers cause you to hurt the most and cause the depression to set in and avoid those things as much as you can until you are ready to do them again. For instance, when i tried to quit smoking, driving was my trigger. I had to find something else to do while driving instead of smoking (since stopping driving was not an option, i do that for a living). I know its not the same, but wanted to give you an example of how it was similar. So, if possible, you should avoid the things that remind him of you or find an alternative to him for those things that you still must do or still want to do (i.e. i am not saying never go to crackle barrel again if that was where u had your first date there or something along those lines). As far as the forcing yourself to go out with other guys, well, you are not going to enjoy going out if you have to force yourself to go. Same as kids aren't going to enjoy their vegetables if their parents force them to eat them (i still hate cabbage to this day due to that little scenario) Lastly, it is going to take time. It is cheesy, but it is true that 'time heals all wounds'... the longer you are apart the easier it will get until one day you will wake up and realize that you did not even think of him the day before... Just remember that no man or woman is worth causing you to be unhappy since the secret to happiness really does lie inside you, not with things outside you... not sure if this will help any, but wanted to let ya know what i have learned in my time here on the third rock from the sun... hope things get better for you sooner than later...  (Aug 12, 2012 | post #2)

I fear that the only way you will be able to "pass" will be to move out of the country... With Romney's pick for VP it pretty much is going to be another 4 years of obama... but, exercise your right to vote and cast that R/R vote in November... it's not like it was proven by 'W' that the popular vote doesn't matter, go ahead and cast that vote anyway... and since this topic is about gas taxes, i will give a source to show that neither obama nor W have anything to do with the price of gas, the federal gas tax has been the same since Slick Willie was in office in October of 1997... http://taxfoundati on.org/article/fed eral-gasoline-exci se-tax-rate-1932-2 008  (Aug 11, 2012 | post #29)

Oh... a RNC commercial... that wasn't taken out of context at all... and i still haven't seen or heard him say that he supports gas prices equivalent to European prices... I don't assume you have a link to the entire interview so we can hear what the question was and any kind of comment he made after the soundbite the RNC is using do you?  (Aug 7, 2012 | post #10)

Oh yeah, just a tip, obama has openly stated he has no problem with $8-$10 a gallon gasoline, he just doesn't want it to jump that high all at once. and u, of course, have a source for this misinformation???? of course you do, that's why you showed it... u sure do spew a lot of mis information with no or questionable sources cranky... and to think, i actually agreed with you on a different post...  (Aug 6, 2012 | post #6)
