Obama to honor 28 victims of 1961 tower collapse

Yeah right. Only in your dreams except for the last comment concerning prayer. Don't Muslims in America have the freedom to pray to Allah? Yes they do!!!  (Feb 9, 2011 | post #10)

Are You Sick of Hearing about Civility?

You noticed. If someone is going to slam another for their English, they should at least write English correctly themselves. Even though there is no limit to the length of an English sentence, a norm is about 36 words. But my sentence was understandable, not confusing. Nevertheless, I am better at the French language than English. Now, Gentlemen, let's return to the topic at hand!  (Feb 4, 2011 | post #83)

Super Bowl XLV - Jacksonville, FL

Yes, sure did! The Packers are in third place in playoff record wins with 28. The Steelers are tied for 1st place with the Cowboys with 33. As for Superbowl wins, the Steelers are number 1 with 6, with Green Bay winning 3. I am feeling that we will see a very good Superbowl this Sunday.  (Feb 4, 2011 | post #3)

Super Bowl XLV - Jacksonville, FL

While the Steelers have a superb playoff record, and the Superbowl will be the best ever, I beleive the Packers will prevail by one point.  (Feb 4, 2011 | post #1)

I agree. While there are Federal medical INS options geared for specific groups, such as Medicare, Tricare Prime, etc, a public option would of been a great idea, but the private sector would of made sure that it would not have been cost effective for those who choose to use it, especially in the area of the agreed upon payments from the government to the doctors/specialists/etc.  (Feb 3, 2011 | post #64)

Are You Sick of Hearing about Civility?

Your bring up some good points: Point 1: Even so, one still has a choice to pick what insurance you want, be it private or federally "mandated " as you put it. I have federally "mandated " HMO type insurance that I CHOOSE, and was never forced down my throat. I had a choice between the insurance plans offered by my employer and the Federal one that I qualified for as a retired Vet. I choose the federal one and it is the best choice compared to the private ones. Point 2. We need gun control. But most are put in place by States. The Constitution guarantees law abiding citizens to bear arms, like myself and many others out there, as long as you follow the rules. It is not difficult to do. Point 3. I have one thing to say about this: There are things the government should never get into, like mandating you have medical insurance or be fined!! Unconstitutional, period.  (Feb 3, 2011 | post #61)

See, there you go again. Were you a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union?  (Feb 3, 2011 | post #59)

Your style of writing is so like old school political Soviet literature.  (Feb 3, 2011 | post #46)

Yes, our country will be taken back by civility. It is called "voting" .  (Feb 2, 2011 | post #38)

Goodness, man. Snap out of it. The 911 attacks did not occur only in New York. President Obama was at a 911 memorial service at the Pentagon. The Pentagon did get attacked, or didn't you know that? And how about Former President Bush. He did not attend some memorial services for 911 in New York either. What do you say to that? How about you complaining about that.  (Jan 31, 2011 | post #6)
