Maybe folks in the more rural areas *don't want* subsidized healthcare or other social services handed to them from the government?


Would those folks wish to give up Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and Defense completely?

I could go on, but all this election has done is shone a light on just far we need to go to achieve equality. These things might not effect you, but they are very real to me.

All persons running for President, and if elected. Must endure the lies, hatred and vitriol directed against them. Just a normal part of the process.

The lies, hatred and vitriol directed against her. Has nothing to do with her gender.

Hillary is getting Equal Treatment. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Bollox.

This link agrees with you.

Oh, think how much the economy would improve if they sold claymore mines to the general public.

I asked a coworker of mine, if there was a pistol, that shot nuclear rounds, should the public be allowed to have them. His answer was absolutely, as that is what our second amendment guaranteed. That seems a wee bit excessive to me.

I think the main problem is distance. There may be many instances of life. Some microbial, some just learning to make tools, and some already extinct as well as every mix in between. The distances are just overwhelming.

I am very sorry Mark.
We have had cats be put to sleep, and pass away in our arms.
There is no replacing the loss either way.

I am told my fathers diagnosis is ALS, and kidney failure. He is in home hospice now. No more treatments or doctors. There is a lot of uncertainty at the moment, for a lot of reasons not mentioned.

I can say that dealing with the demise of a loved one is extremely draining. My7 father may have ALS, or the degenerative Parkinson's, as the doctors still aren't certain. They have checked for tumors, and just about everything. His kidneys are failing, and his mental capacity is failing extremely rapidly. His ability to get out of bed has long passed. He may go into home hospice any day, or aspirate more food at any moment. He is home from the hospital at the moment, but there is a lot of uncertainty. My best guess is days to weeks. Certainly not months.

I really do sympathize will everyone going through a similar situation. It is difficult, draining, and stressful. As I mentioned, I am 1500 miles away, with no possible means to do anything. For those of you dealing with the situation directly, my thoughts are with you.

I am going through a similar situation with my father, except he is in the hospital 1500 miles away from me. He understands next to nothing, and conversations are extremely difficult. It is easy to feel helpless, as there is little that can be done. My fathers specific problem is degenerative Parkinson's. He doesn't shake, but aspirated food, and things went south from there. Last night he told me to read a medical book, and tell the doctors what to do to get him out. He is extremely belligerent, not understanding why he can't go home, even though he doesn't remember his home, after just being in the hospital a week.

I sympathize with everyone dealing with aging parents or loved ones. Nothing about any of this is easy, and I'm 1500 miles away.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the green stars not relighting, or even confirmation emails being sent out after a contribution.....

I was lucky to be able to reach Jeff so quickly, and that it was an easy problem to fix.

Not so lucky in getting my little green star to reignite....

Meow!

My star hasn't reignited either, and I made a donation the day before you did.

Steve

I guess the green star is really broke. Still nothing is even showing up on my account page.

Natural color, no Photoshop.

That is amazing.


feeding the squirrels.

I've never seen a squirrel get up in somebody's lap like that.

I have hand fed them, but I was always worried about my nuts. (Peanuts)

My results are the same as yours. No email confirmation, and it isn't showing up on my account page. I did download the pdf confirmation, which I have at home.

BojanR is a Million + producer before the WOW. It's not surprising that he would over take Freezing after 4 days. No bunkering there, just a heck of a lot of computers chugging out work...

There is nothing better than raw brute force computer crunching. :D
