Car options

There's one simple word for this whole problem: GREED. Greed on the part of corporate execs who flew to thior first congressional hearing in COMPANY JETS. Greed on the part of the United Auto Workers who think they are OWED a job and more perks than almost any other bloc of employees in the country. Greed on the part of the companies, making cars for a few thousand dollars and then selling them for 10 times what they cost to build just to give the CEOs and higher-ups "golden parachute" retirement plans. And greed on the part of the coporations for builfing those ridiculou skyscrapers as monuments to themselves. The whole auto industry stinks from top to bottom, and the best thing would be let them go into bankruptcy and have the courts reorganize them and rein in the maverick UAW.  (Dec 13, 2008 | post #20)

Fighting to save MARC's late trains

Wait a minute...these people are worried because they'll miss after-work dinners? If they can afford dinner in DC they can afford $20 for a ticket on Amtrak.  (Dec 11, 2008 | post #8)

Extremists push to restrict choice

"The United States already struggles with child and maternal health issues: For an industrialized nation, we have shockingly high rates of unwanted pregnancy and infant mortality". Pretty clear to me that the writer is compaining about the rate of infant mortality while supporting abortion. I guess afmca didn't read that part of the editorial - or chose to ignore it because "abortions aren't linked to infant mortality". And why aren't they? Because if they were the numbers would skyrocket and people would be demanding a stop to them. Oh, I forgot - that thing growing inside a woman isn't an infant. Hell, it's not even human! Hmm... must be a watermelon from that seed she swallowed... But there is an alternative to abortion that is NOT based in any religious dogma and so should satisfy afmca and their ilk: it's called "personal responsibility " - or, more simply put, keep your knees together or take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for the new life you may be creating.  (Dec 5, 2008 | post #6)

On college ills, vote with remote

I'm just amazed that "higher learning" and "college football" are used in the same article. Get rid of redshirts and athletic scholarships and make every player, before he dons a college uniform, sign a contract that says he can't play NFL ball for four years after his last college semester, and abolish the BCS. THEN you'll see some changes...but not until.  (Dec 4, 2008 | post #8)

'Why believe in a god?' ads on Metro draw scorn

Wow...the anti-religious zealots sure come out of the woodwork when God is mentioned...like cockroaches when food is around.  (Dec 3, 2008 | post #22)

Shoppers trample Wal-Mart worker

I was referring to the FACT that Newbie (another fake name, but at least he provided a FACT rather than an INSULT) pointed out the race of the people involved and was called a racist because of it. I also pointed out several posters to whom I was referring as being annonymous name-calling trolls. If you can't stick to the subject of my post, then please don't respond to it. But, for your edification and enlightenment as to the FACTS, here are some photographs of the crowd at the WalMart in question just before the stampede. Don't blame ME if they're all people of "color". http://www.nydaily news.com/money/gal leries/walmart_sta mpede_captured_in_ pictures/walmart_s tampede_captured_i n_pictures.html Pictures 3, 4, 5 and 6 speak for themselves.

Yeah, all the people who point out FACTS are racists. God forbid anyone of "color" should be blamed for their behavior. So say "Leon Trotsky", "Ronnie Regan", and "J White". No comment on the tragedy or the people who perpetrated it - just trolls, using phoney names, hanging out to call other people racists to make themselves feel superior. Losers.  (Nov 29, 2008 | post #19)

Whinin' Bobby Ehrlich doesn't have any appeal - that's why he was a one-term governor.  (Nov 28, 2008 | post #15)

Navy can't quite catch Notre Dame

If Dobbs had just gone for the two yards for a first down instead of throwing away three tries for TDs, Navy may very well have won this game. They recovered two back-to-back onside kicks, the first resulting in a touch and the second resulting in failed attempts at scoring for the simple reason of wanting too much too fast. That plus the fact that Dobbs wasn't put into the game until it seemed hopeless, only to bring the Midshipmen back to within a touch to tie and PAT to win.... I am hopeful that Navy head coach Ken Nomatulolo learned something from thefourth quarter - and particularly last 39 seconds - of today's game.  (Nov 15, 2008 | post #1)

Lindsay Lohan refers to Obama as 'first colored president'

So...all you people who object to the term "colored " would like to call Obama "black" and to forget - or pretend - that he's a halfbreed. Typical race-baiting buffalo crap.  (Nov 13, 2008 | post #26)

Slippery wheels causing light rail delays

Why don't light trail cars have tubes to apply sand to the rails like regular locomotives? This is what happens when a rail ystem is designed by a department of transportation that thinks "transportati on" is a synonym for "highways ".  (Nov 13, 2008 | post #1)

Gay marriage vote was disheartening

First, there IS NO NON-ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE. That's a fantasy created by liberals to quash religeous expression. Second, same-sex couples cannot procreate; ergo, they cannot "have" children. Adopting and raising a child in a perverse atmosphere is simply a "we told you so" ego trip for the rainbow crowd. And before you label me a hatemonger or whatever other name you want to attach to me in an effort to appease your consciences, don't bother; whether you like it or not, I have as much right to my opinion as you have to yours.  (Nov 10, 2008 | post #24)
