2750 women? Per year. And now with free contraception from the ACA.

And yet, no outrage.

Which one do you think is being groomed for a Presidential run?

You beat me to the comment. The "crazy woman" was right and in spite of the President's best efforts, U.S. oil production increases have indeed provided gas prices at under $2.00 a gallon. Admit it folks, this prediction is way more than a "broken clock". Why is it so hard to admit that you were wrong?

I believe that about a third of it must go to the "rainy day fund". Which, if anyone has noticed, never goes to pay for a rainy day, we ask the Feds to pay for floods.

How many more budgets can we increase spending by over 8% per biennium? Certainly most readers here have increased their spending by at least that much (not including borrowing).

As long as every other child is happy, this is a wonderful thing. Actually, it is still wonderful. But if this decision makes even one non-transgender child unhappy, do we just say "Too bad!" Would their unhappiness make them bigots or racists or sexists? Seems like kind of a harsh situation for a child to be put in, much like the transgender child, through no fault of their own.

Don't play in the street. Unless all of the protesters were in a crosswalk and crossing with the light, I too am amazed that someone wasn't charged in this situation.

It was especially refreshing that the Legislature and Governor undid many of the taxes that they imposed the year before. Who knew that the results would show up so quickly? Now to find another new revenue source for the increase in spending that will occur with the next budget (8% minimum is my guess not including the bonding that will occur in a non-bonding year.

On a similar note, perhaps all the wailing about cutting off unemployment benefits after 26 weeks was wasted as we, as...

Posted on 11/14/14 at 07:28 pm in response to A conservative’s argument against net neutrality

It is ridiculous that we can't purchase electricity and natural gas from whoever we want. Hopefully, once net neutrality is the law, we can get the same deal for power. I'd much rather purchase my electricity from the power company right next to the hydroelectric dam and natural gas from the company right next to where the drilling is going on.

I especially agree with the post stating that the President will get a better response to a request-- or Executive Action..
