Attitudes like this are what's wrong: There’s one final problem with these kinds of arguments, and that is the implication that we should be worried by the possibility of poor people buying the occasional steak, lottery ticket or, yes, even an iPhone. Set aside the fact that a better cut of meat ma...

Republicans believe that taking care of people isn't the government's business, period. They lay it right out in the open. They believe America is built on the principle of survival of the fittest. Everyone works hard for themselves and nobody owes anyone else anything, not healthcare, not a living...

https://www.rt.com/news/379531-korea-missile-projectile-launch/ From a neutral English language news source. Apparently everybody is still combing through data from US monitoring satellites to figure out what exactly Fat Boi and the remnant of his generals who are still alive have launched. Ever sin...

Damn, only 20 (assuming she was in the same grade as you), not even old enough to drink/gamble. It sounds like she was having a difficult time, and she wasn't telling anybody, and she was away from all her support systems which is a necessity for most NT's who go through hard times. A lot of very yo...

I think it is important to keep responses genuine. Once one starts to think about what the appropriate response is, it's game over. For me, if I can't figure out how to express what I am feeling or thinking, I stay silent. That can be hard sometimes because often my feelings are overwhelming and I ...

You should read The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles, google it, it's a free pdf file. Don't be put off by the title, since it's not really about getting rich, it's about how, if you put a good intention out there and then look for opportunities to fulfill it, a door will open for it to ha...

I think Cricketman may be addicted to gambling. Aside from lotto games, I didn't know they had casinos in the UK. (Although I might be assuming too much.) I know that casinos in the USA are sensory hell on earth, for me at least. My mom took me up to Reno so we could see the record snowfall in the S...

Even Google is getting its $2 in, check google.com until about 4 or 5 pm Pacific Standard Time 2/23 (about 0000 UTC/GMT 2/24) for a cute new Google Doodle celebrating the discovery. Say hi and wave back to the new planets! :lol: :lol:

I know that the whole "I'm leaving the country if Candidate XYZ becomes POTUS!" meme is pretty cliched by now, but it seems that it's actually happening under Trump.

I don't think that the left is that serious a threat, as in a revolutionary army able to defeat the conservatives and forcibly establish a Communist state. The big thing is that they don't have a single cause to rally around. That's the same problem that did in the Occupy movement, despite Occupy be...

Not all of us here can sit through a 45 minute youtube video. I found this article on a local TV station's website that may or may not say basically the same thing.

http://www.kcra.com/article/water-stops-spilling-over-oroville-auxiliary-spillway/8736758 The immediate danger has passed. No evacuations for metro Sacramento area. 188,000 people displaced, motels all full in Chico and Sacramento. So far, I won't have to leave. Beneficii, thank you but I don't live...

The Marysville suburbs of Linda and Olivehurst, which were destroyed by a flood 30 years ago, have been evacuated as well. They're dropping rocks ("rappel") into the hole right now to try and fill it. No immediate threat to the city of Sacramento itself, where I am. 180,000 people under ma...

My mom, who lives in the main house, has said that if she leaves I will too. I have my radios, meds, computer discs, and document box ready. They are sending Yuba and Sutter Counties down to Sacramento. Radio says that every road from Oroville to the Feather-Sacramento confluence is gridlock. They a...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNGLU_VsePg I live in Sacramento near the Sacramento River. Part of Oroville Dam, near Oroville on the Feather River about 75 miles north, will probably have washed away by the time you read this, along with towns that are far too poor to rebuild such as Oroville its...
