Something Had to Be Done

Our healthcare system costs by far the most in the world, but achieves very, very mediocre results (17th or thereabouts in both infant mortality and life expectancy, last I checked). Something had to be done, and the Republicans proposed nothing.

Obama wants to keep the government open. If you're gonna blame someone, blame the Republicans who demand to be treated like they won the last two Presidential elections instead of getting their butts kicked.

You're definitely right about McCain and Flake, but Pastor I'm not so sure. At any rate, all three have the right to know that some constituents oppose this war.

I thought it was hilarious how she tried to pretend that her porn movie was really a stolen sex tape, only to be foiled by her co-star James Deen who said (paraphrasing): "I don't want people thinking I would actually date someone like her."

...asking them to vote NO on the use of force in Syria. My comments to Senator McCain are below (and my messages to Senator Flake and Congressman Pastor were similarly worded): Although Senator McCain has strongly advocated for the use of force in Syria, I would hope that he reconsiders and votes AGAINST military force on the Senate floor. While Bashar al-Assad's chemical attacks are barbaric and unconscionable, they in no way threaten the United States itself. Furthermore, the rebel ...

Which is part of the reason it's the best for her: In CC, you can still talk and interact with your profs. At a four-year college, you see your profs with 150 other students in a lecture hall twice a week, and your papers are graded by a TA who may or may not be any good.

She'll have plenty of time for that after she has her two-year degree and transfers to a four-year college. We're certainly not going to tell her she CAN'T come home when her classes are over.

Wireless devices today are more sophisticated than ever before. And because of that, the costs associated with upgrading to a new device have increased and is reflected in our new upgrade fee. Exactly what "costs have increased?" They switch your account from one SIM to another. How is this any more difficult with a more sophisticated phone? :roll:
