Nov 2nd 2011 9:24PM Good job by the Brazilians. I hope none of the drug runners are American, or sure as shit there will be a bunch of two-bit lawyers on their way down there to "protect their clients' rights". In Brazil, they'll get what's coming to them... lots of years in a no nonsense prison: no ping pong tables, basketball courts or color TVs.

Feb 13th 2008 7:29PM Barack Obama is on a permanent role. The initial half of the primaries (causcuses, etc) were the test of whether or not an African American could ascend to the presidency; the second half will demonstrate the inertia that he so successfully has because: a) people identify with his ideas, and b) it is apparent now that the most important issue facing the country is the way that the rest of the world has come to view the USA given the quagmire that the current administration has led us into. Not just the Iraq war: global warming, environmental issues, arrogance in dealing with other countries economically, etc. NOTHING else is more important at this time in (future) American History than reversing this dangerous and unprecedented trend.
Barack Obama will be seen as a breath of fresh air BY THE REST OF THE WORLD. He will instantly be accepted by world leaders who will be incredulous that the American people had the Audacity (of Hope) to elect a president of color. They will come to understand that by our selection of him as president, that it will no longer be "business as usual" in Washington.
It is vitally important that anyone reading this acknowledge (at least to themselves), that without a significant turnaround in the opinions of other nations as regards our country, the other matters of economics, taxes, immigration will only pale in comparison.
Nov 15th 2007 9:12PM This may be offensive but it does cost more to transport obese flyers. And like luggage, this should be taxed. The point that we should be taking from this goes further; it is that the obese people in the world that truly cost all of us a lot more money in the area of health care. The rates of diabetes/hypertension/heart attacks and heart failure, not to mention bad backs, knees and hips....ALL go up in the obese patient. OUR tax dollars continually get spent at increasing rates, to care for those on Medicaid and Medicare. Our post tax dollars that we spend on health insurance is also inflated for the same reason.
The fact is that we should all be weighed in April with a extra excise (no pun intended) tax placed on people who are 110% of ideal weight.
And yes, we should do the same for smokers for the same reason. (Smoking is easy to identify with a fingerstick blood test (CO level).
