    Matthew, I may be letting too much of the Dad in me come out. Sorry. Just realize a lot of what you think is gospel now you will think is garbage later on.

    Want to save Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The best way to do it would be for the country to smoke, drink, and get very obese. The longer that people live the more time so have to go to the hospital. The more it will cost Medicaid and Medicare. The longer people. The more you will have to pay in Social Security. So the easiest answer is for every American to have a unhealthy lifestyle. If you have an unhealthy lifestyle. They will die younger and save the money for the country.

    I am the cheapest baby boomer that you’ve ever met. I heat the house with the wood burning stove and I even eat road kill, dear if it’s fresh. But don’t tell anybody

    I have not done it yet but i am going to put a wood burner insert in my main fireplace (gas log now) and I have a soapstone woodburner in my family room on the lower level. One i do that I will be able to heat my house with wood also. I also drive my vehicles until the wheels fall off.

    “Wow Matthew I wish I could have known everything about everything when I was in college. ”
    _______________________

    Oh for goodness sakes, is this going to be your go-to response now EVERYTIME we disagree about anything? It’s getting tedious. You’re being as condescending as I am. Particularly because so much of what I’m saying has zero relation to any courses I’ve taken in college, save for history.

    Everyone here thinks they know what they’re talking about. By the mere act of engaging someone else in a discourse, and sharing your opinion, you believe that you are correct on that issue. If you didn’t think you knew what you were talking about, you wouldn’t post. That doesn’t make you a know-it-all, so please stop dropping that line of BS on me every time I choose to post about a particular area where I have strong opinions.

    And please understand that, other than things that we know as fact, none of these things I say are rooted in some deep foundation of belief. I am very open to being swayed by contradictory evidence. Stop this anti-academia nonsense.

  • Matthew

    Hrm, hum, hrm, ah, yes, hrm, if only you were ah, older and more wise, like me, you’d have better opinions.

    ABCNEWS SHAKE UP: JAKE TAPPER JUMPS TO CNN…

  • Letmethink

    @City KittyI am sick and tired of all the non-stop coverage and idiot theories on the murders in Conn. This is a perfect time for me to catch up on my recorded episodes of Inspector Lewis.
    I’ve watched all of them. Will he have some new ones on anytime soon?

    Gov at work, your gov

    Los Angeles County Assessor John Noguez has been in jail since mid-October because a campaign fundraiser allegedly bribed him to lower property taxes for his individual clients, but the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday decided they will not remove him from office and continue paying his $197,000 annual salary, which has already increased by $5,000 since July due to a cost-of-living adjustment.

    And normal people wonder why the republic of California is screwed up? With illogical nonsense like this it’s a wonder they have lasted this long. I left CA many years ago when Gov Moonbeam first started the demise and destruction of the state. Good luck to those of you who remain. I do not have any hopes for you.

  • Doug Z

    Corruption and incompetence from top to bottom.
    Did they mention that the majority of the State is run by liberal Democrats?
    I believe the quote is: “Just enough to wet my beak”.

  • usa8888

    Fox Cable ratings continue to tank and MSNBC is on fire. Meanwhile, the t-bags in the House try to push Lyan Ryan’s fiscal solution which the American People (includding the Republicans) don’t want. The right wing GOP continues to alienate the middle class, women, gays, blacks, latinos, the young, etc. The right wingers do have the good old boy country club set and the religious fantatics in their camp,…and Norquist…………..

  • usa8888

    GDP growth revised upward…………….in spite of the t-bag obstructionists of the GOP doing what they can to ruin our economy……

  • Bobbyv

    US,

    Not that I am the judge and jury here but if you are going to continue to use offensive terms like t-bags how are you going to convince anyone you are right?

  • cathy

    EVERYONE READ. CNN said today that the deal the President offered is not the same as he campaigned on. They said, Obama ran on a 2 to 1, spending reductions to tax increase and that his offered deal was less than 1 to 1. Did you see that….. CNN said it….

  • cathy

    @Matthew, Sorry, I’m not a minded reader. I said my degree was old. So, likely My econ professors talked a lot about Reagan because he was the President when I was in college.

  • cathy

    @Matthew, “out-of-control student debt”

    We can’t blame this all on the cost of college. Students and parents are a big part of the problem. My kids are college age and I’ve been in the college aide meetings. Student are picking schools without having a major in mind or without thinking about cost. They will pick a private school, the nicest dorm or apartment closest to campus, they demand their own room and own bathroom. They go on a winter trip to Florida, Spring break on a cruise ship, summer in Europe. They don’t work while they are going to school. They will change their major two or three time and take 5 or 6 years to graduate. Now, this is the extreme. Then cry about being $150,000 in debt.
    The normal is pick a school, not knowing what you want to major in, get an apartment very close to campus, go on spring break. Change your twice major. Graduate in 5 years. Then cry about being $100,000 in debt.
    If students would pick colleges based on cost they would go to a Community College for two years, maybe three (if they change major). Their tuition would be $3,000 a year. When they do go for their B.S. or B.A. they would pick a smaller state school tuition is around $10,000 a year. They would pick an apartment 1 mile from campus (farther if the city has buses) so that they get cheaper rent and get roommates. Doing that housing would cost around $6,000. That’s only $38,000 for a B.S. or B.A.
