Octuplets' birth spawns outrage from public

The problem with your idea is that the uneducated, welfare dependents won't limit themselves to 2 kids. It's the intelligent elite that have decided to not have children at all, or just one. Perhaps we should "force" CERTAIN people to pass an intelligence test as well as produce financial statements. Pretty soon, all of the intelligence in the world will be gone, and we'll be left with **** . By the way Lori, we don't live in communist China. If you would like to abide by this rule, I suggest that you move there. Also, be prepared to give up your right to free speech, freedom of religion, and even freedom to full internet access.  (Feb 7, 2009 | post #17)

Octuplets' birth spawns outrage from public

John and Kate and the Duggar Family support themselves. There are also 2 parents. John and Kate didn't do invitro. Would I want 18 kids? Absolutely not, but if a family is capable of providing the financial support, I really don't care. This goof can't even take care of herself!  (Feb 7, 2009 | post #15)

How do you know your job is harder? Were you a CEO of a corporation? You sound like a weary jealous man.  (Feb 4, 2009 | post #123)

Awwww...my heart bleeds. The fact is your father CHOSE his profession, it wasn't chosen for him. All that "he did it because he loved it" stuff is purely goofy. The fact is, we choose our careers. We know what they pay is. We don't get into it and cry foul because we think we don't get paid enough. Teachers might be teaching my "annyoying-ar se" kids, but I'm wiping arses, mixing YOUR drugs, treating YOUR pain, and all of this for 50-weeks out of the year. I will NEVER NEVER see the money a teacher with 20 years of experience gets. I chose this career, and I know what it pays. I'm not looking to my local taxing body to up my pay in a downturning market. All of the teachers boo-hoo hooing need to get a life, or pick a different JOB.  (Feb 4, 2009 | post #121)

The GOP and the audacity of nope

Ok, I vote that YOU give ALL of your money to taxes along with everyone else who thinks this country don't tax enough. It all seems like a great idea until they come digging into YOUR pockets. Hey, if you can get all those libs in Hollywood to give up all their money, we would be in fine shape, though I doubt they'll want to give up their manicures, designer clothing, $100,000 cars, and multimillion dollar real estate. If you think the government knows better how to spend our money, you need your head examined, and FAST.  (Feb 1, 2009 | post #64)

While we are at it, let's stop all form of welfare including Medicaid, food stamps, LINK, WIC, section 8 housing, etc. After all, we're throwing "good money after bad" with those programs as well.  (Feb 1, 2009 | post #63)

Expo for CPS charter schools offers choices, promise, con...

No where did the parents state what they were planning on doing to ensure their child succeeds. They want excellent schools close by so they don't have to drive their kid? Please! As far as the teacher's union goes, all they are concerned about is that graduation rates shouldn't have anything to do with what they earn.  (Feb 1, 2009 | post #18)

Teenagers protest Chicago police getting high-power rifles

Teens are upset? Give me a small break. Perhaps they should put on bullet proof vests, and walk in the shoes of a police officer for a few days. The fact that we are giving these kids attention just shows how absolutely goofy this country is.  (Nov 21, 2008 | post #24)

Between transplants, teen survives 4 months with no heart...

Thanks to the Trib for printing a positive medical story. I wish the girl well, and hope that she continues to improve and live life to the fullest. Also, thanks and praise to the docs and nurses who cared for her. They are truly life savers. As an aside, many medical miracles happen everyday, but are not publicized.  (Nov 20, 2008 | post #2)

Flight attendant helps land plane after co-pilot breaks down

You get what you pay for. Our society wants everything for free, or close to free. If you want to fly in a new plane, pony up the cash.  (Nov 20, 2008 | post #22)

It's amazing how you can judge the difficulty of flying a plane with 200 passengers when you obviously are a goof. Now go back to picking garbge or digging ditches. Two career choices that are right up your intellectual alley.  (Nov 20, 2008 | post #19)

No title

"It is still going after the child, who is a victim of the alcohol industry," said Janet Williams, co-chairwoman of the Illinois Coalition to Stop Underage Drinking. VICTIMS? How about poor judgement and lack of parenting? Perhaps the selfishness and need for 'a good time' is to blame. The only victims are those who are killed by intoxicated drivers. Blaming the alcohol industry is just plain stupid, and creates even more of a nanny state. Who forcibly put the alcohol to the mouths of these kids? My guess is no one. Just another way to avoid responsibility for poor choices and actions is to blame someone else. This typical liberal thought is just one of the many things that are ruining this country.  (Nov 17, 2008 | post #7)

Bailout Nation

Yeah, because the "affluent " got there by sitting on the rear ends holding out their hands and saying 'gimmie'. How about rewarding those who pay 98% of the federal taxes in this country instead of slamming anyone who makes $150,000 a year? Why do we verbally abuse those who went to school, went into debt to do it, and they took a risk that they may someday make an income that would mean they could retire without needing social security and put their kids through college. Down with socialism and the stealing from the high earners to give it to generation after generation of welfare recepients. By the way, socialism has been around for years. The liberals think that giving out welfare checks, LINK cards and WIC to the same people for 50 years is a good thing. We are also supporting illegals, convicted murderers, prostitutes, and drug addicts.  (Nov 16, 2008 | post #26)

Macy's shifts focus to store 'localization'

No Marshall Fields on the door = less shoppers. Macy's is horrible, and nothing like Fields. No tuxedo or suit will fix that.  (Nov 14, 2008 | post #11)
