  1. More importantly, 47% disagreed with that statement. 863 is hardly a large enough sample to draw such a sweeping statement. Were the remaining 24% undecided?
  2. This type of grandstanding is a waste of taxpayer money. No state can null and void a federal law. This is stupidity at its highest. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is law. I wish these jokers would just get over it and move on. There are a lot more productive things that need to be done.
  3. I'm not sure if every disease is curable, but most are. I don't think the government is behind it though. I agree with Neo (shock!) that it's the big pharmaceutical companies and even healthcare businesses like hospitals are behind it. I recently watched a couple of great documentaries about how many of our worse diseases can be cured and even reversed with the right diet. A couple of the doctors who had great results treating patients who were in the worse shape (nearly dying) were marginalized at their respective hospital and clinic. There's big money in healthcare.
  4. Or evil dictators-in-waiting, especially Glenn Beck. I stumbled upon a video of Beck talking about his "freedom city". He essentially replaced the "evil" government with himself. I do think that we do have to watch out for government interferring in our personal lives, of overstepping boundaries. But it's another thing to replace government with something or someone far worse.
  5. Lately, I have been hearing some really great things about Al Jazeera English. I will have to check them out. I can't speak or NickJ, but I share the same opinion. It's not born out of some "all consuming leftist media". It's from my personal observations. I do think the crazies are the loudest and get more attention. That's a shame. I do know plenty of fiscally conservatives who are pretty decent.
  6. I get my news from a variety of places. At one time, I used to follow CNN religiously. Now, it's just utter garbage. I really can't take Fox News. I watch clips on YouTube for the entertainment and piss off factor. I'm a big fan of Democracy Now with Amy Goodman and Project Censored which tracks the most uncovered important news issues of the year.
  7. Usually money goes hand in hand with power and influence,but I guess not always. Nope, we haven't heard the last from Cyprus. This is just crazy. I still don't think it will happen in the US, at least not now. Yes, the hackers have been stealing money for a long time. The banks that utilizes the *cloud* are especially vulnerable.
  8. I didn't drink that much, but I went through some serious withdrawal symptoms when I stopped drinking Coke. I had headaches. I would even hear the fizzling of Coke. It was bad! After three days, I was okay, but it scared me. It blows my mind that it's legally sold as a regular drink.
  9. This was probably added to the state's Constitution to prevent any type of corruption. The electric car charge thing is an unforeseen circumstance.
  10. This happened to a Brazilian friend of mine. She was a singer with a traveling Brazilian tour group. She had most of her money in a bank of Brazil. Overnight she went from wealthy to dead broke. Honestly, I don't know what I would do, but I wouldn't take it lying down so to speak. I really don't understand why the wealthy in Brazil didn't overthrow the government.
  11. I do agree with this. This is definitely true. I would say that these are strange times, but some Americans have always been afraid of other Americans.
  12. No, I don't trust the government. Not really. There is too much big money influence in politics. Most politicians spend half their time trying to get re-elected. Mulitnational corporations have too much influence. I don't agree that both parties are really the same (in the US). I love it if we could get an influential third party involved, but not the Libertarians.
  13. Good grief! I have also read that many bodies do need to be embalmed because of the crap we're eating. Last year, I eliminated all refined food from my diet. It's one of the best things I've done for my health.
  14. It's perfectly understandable that Las Vegas would ban Google glasses. I expect Atlantic City and Indian casinos would ban them too. I have to area with Victor, I wouldn't talk to anyone wearing them too. It's just creepy.
  15. No, I don't think the government was behind the bombing. I do think that some members in the government will take advantage of certain situations to push their own agenda. But I still don't think that the government was behind it.
