Thank you for your kind words and advice. I really appreciate your observations.
I'm very proud of my nephews progress these last few months...He's working. He's moved to a new place. He's preparing to finish college. He's coping as best he can with the loss...He's doing all the things we've talked about and more. It would be nice if we could talk more often but, for now, I'm happy that he's busy and making plans for the future.View Thread
Yes, you can stand in judgment over people seeking physician-assisted suicide when you have still have the functional use of your arms, legs, fingers and toes...When you can drive to a park and watch children play or listen to the wind in the tress. And, you can voice your opinion against the passing of a law permitting such an act...
But, until you lose all of that and your survival is completely dependent upon the help of others, you really don't know what the hell you're talking about...
The correlation between age and advocacy for this piece of legislation cannot be ignored. This law works as long as unemployment and the health of Americans does not worsen. From my perspective, them's 2 mighty dangerous 'sumptions.View Thread
We all put our faith in God. We are all believers. We all worship. Your insistence on doing it "your" way gets in the way of you understanding this...Be well; See ya on the other side, snowflake.View Thread
"...but when he discovered that Dou could not pay for the operation, and had no insurance coverage — at least as far as he knew — the doctor performed a simple amputation. Dou's boss paid, but when Dou demanded compensation he was fired. "I did not have a labour contract," Dou says. "Nor do I have the health insurance through my employer. No one would hire you here, if you insisted on having one."..."
Do you think that's funny, Carlos? How much do you think health insurance costs these days?View Thread
Personal responsibility, communist state, the farm bill, "we have bigger issues"...too much stress, insurance companies, governmental ineptitude, over worked...
Fenton, Youngskied and ADB relax...breathe...Nobody is gonna take your Big Gulp, away. Bloomberg wants to be Don Quixote? When you got a "billy" and believe in manifest destiny, would you expect anything less? If Uncle Warren is still vested 20% in Coca Cola stock, what the hell does this tell us???
Sure, people care about "fat" kids &, of course, people are angry our government can't even decide what to have for lunch but everything's gonna get better when the economy turns the corner, so, let's take our meds and wait for the next release of Call for Duty.
You're right, Fenton. I'm just old fool howling at the moon. When will I ever learn?...
