I am not seeing "love and worship". I don't "love" Hillary and there are things that I am disappointed in her with. That's why I voted for Obama in 2008 and Bernie in 2016. But she is a perfectly reasonable choice for President and I liked her Tim Kaine pick as VP. I watched Trump and he terrifies me. That made me more supportive of Clinton than I might have been, and also when reading the sickening defenses of Trump or the irrational attacks by people pretending to be Democrats I always reply.

I read that. The first thing I thought of is that I hope she has a darn good second and third opinion by an expert in pain management before she makes that decision. There are so many doctors who are good otherwise but truly inept when it comes to pain management and do not have a clue. The top surgeons, the top doctors are often NOT good at that. I just hope she saw people who specialize in pain management. If she did, and there is nothing to alleviate the pain, then it is so tragic and I have to respect her decision. [ Reply | More ]

SMA is 100% lethal 100% of the time. And the end involves ventilators, being completely paralyzed and tube fed. There is no second opinion to be had- that is what SMA is.

I know it is lethal. But the article said she is in terrible pain. And as I said, my first thought was whether that pain was being managed correctly or whether it was being managed using whatever drugs were cheapest or on her insurance or any other of a million reasons. We have terrible pain management in this country and when I read about a 14 year old in that much constant pain, my first thoughts are that I hope she does not have one of the huge % of doctors who are bad at treating pain. That's all. As I said, if true pain management experts have found nothing to help her pain, then I have to respect her decision. [ Reply | More ]

You generally need to lag economic measures by 1-2 yrs to really evaluate a President. Bush entered in a recessiin just like Obama- no one would reasonably give him credit or blame for the 2001 economic results. You should measure 2011-2019 really to look at the effect of Obama's actions. [ Reply | More ]

That is not a lot. around 1.2m a year is less than 1% of the base of around 140m. The population is growing faster than that so you arent creating enough to absorb. In fact, 6 of the last seven Presidencies had more than 9m created and they all had lower bases to start with. [ Reply | More ]

Well, the economic crash was so bad that a lot of people stopped being counted as being unemployed because they were unemployed for so long. They have given up looking. Know that statistics can be manipulated to tell any story you want to tell. You learn that in Statistics 101. [ Reply | More ]

The only people who answer this question when it's posted are the small minority who are generous or those who lie about being generous. Most of us donate less than 1% of HHI. Even then, lots of the donations go to elite universities and private schools that least need the money. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] This is a complete first world problem but DH has 2 kids from a prior relationship and has joint custody. We have a good relationship with them, and as good as I could hope for with his ex. I treat the kids like my own and people usually assume they are my own bio kids. But, their names are cringeworthy and I find myself embarrassed by them as a reflection on me. I'm just making this a bigger deal than it is, right? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's really shallow -- and no, if I hear someone's name is Bambi I don't judge their mom. I judge their mom on whether that child named Bambi is NICE!!! [ Reply | More ]
