May 26th 2009 7:10PM Mr. Moore is right on the 'money' with this one. The past few years have seen the uber-rich, elite's wealth grow while the middle-class have lost much in the rising costs of everyday life. Yet who has gotten a raise? Nobody I know, and many middle-class have taken pay cuts just to keep working. And its not all gained by hard work for the rich or we would not be familiar with terms like Ponzi schemes, please!
Dec 3rd 2008 6:36PM This is just a self fufilling prophecy of sorts. If women are told they are not as good in math and science, they will not be interested in those fields. I say it is all bull. I have a daughter working on her PhD in biomedical science, so I do not agree.
Sep 22nd 2008 4:14PM I did not see where the article said what the original soda cost was for the woman. If she paid less for the first one, then the manager was really being outrageous. I would think that refills would cost the same as the original at most. I wonder too, why there were no set costs. Seems like a bullying sort of thing then too. But that does not excuse her actions. She was disruptive and damaging to property too. But the worst thing to me by far: the idea that this would go to federal court, cost taxpayers money to go to trial, and all because an employee was given the 'duty' to determine a cost of an item???????Come on government employees and those in support jobs, get real here. And mr. or ms. manager, go back to school and learn some decent business psychology and quit wasting our tax dollars.
Mar 3rd 2008 3:06PM Let us voters decide the elections and not the media. I am sick of the media trying to manipulate our votes. I think that all the primaries should be held on the same day, so the media can NOT try to use their audience as puppets and just report the results instead.
Feb 18th 2008 5:27PM Mrs. Clinton has my Ohio vote, and everyone in my family. She is experienced, and we lived well under her husband's presidency. The last 7 years.....don't get me started.
Feb 18th 2008 5:21PM I am from Ohio, and I feel that there is support for Mrs. Clinton here. Maybe we should wait and see? I feel she has more experience is her campaign give more specifics as to what she will be like compared to Mr. Obama. Either candidate will make a good leader though...
Oct 1st 2007 7:43PM In 1998, I found a lump by self-exam. It was cancerous, stage IIB. I went through chemotherapy, radiation and a lumpectomy. So far, so good. I remember wondering if I would ever feel 'safe' again since the diagosis was at age 38. I felt robbed of my mid years for a little while, then realized it was a new part of my life. I try not to take life for granted anymore. Simple things delight me, like the warm autumn weather today. In a way I started a new life the day of my diagnosis. And I have celebrated many things since, children's graduations, anniversaries, the birth of a grandchild. Life is fantastic and I am greatful for each day, and to the wonderful medical staff who saw me through to this point. No, I can never be considered cured, but I am living!
Sep 4th 2007 9:19PM I found it rather interesting that most people only noticed Ms. Watson's chest was changed, not that her hair was different as well as some slight changes to the shading around her face.
Jul 10th 2007 11:40AM Michael Moore made some pretty decent points in this newcast. His new movie hit home for me, since even with insurance I spent my family's life savings as co-pays during a bout of cancer. I have a family friend in England who did complain to me about waiting to see a doctor for a month, but I just waited six weeks to see a doctor (orthopediac specialist) and I am paying for the bill too, in England he did not have to pay. We have great doctors, great care but it is not affordable to all. If you are a working-class, average 'Joe' you can lose everything if you get sick, I speak from experience and have met others who have been there too. Our leaders should be embarassed by this!
