  • Wow . . . I love when people try to talk about Hipaa, but spell it Hippa . . . clearly they don't know too much about what they're talking about.

    Nothing in particular has shocked me today. I no longer find it shocking that dh, yes I said dh, will walk right past the dishwasher to put his glass in the sink. lol

  • Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought you had to DO something, not have intentions to do something.

  • The NPP going to BO for "attempting". Hell, even Nixon attempted to end the Viet Nam War. He didn't get a darn medal for the attempt. LBJ signed the Civil Rights Bill. He didn't get a medal. I just don't know how this was even considered. The MSNBC poll I voted on showed, at the time I voted, 71% of Americans think it was not deserved. This is shocking too!

  • A Mom in Pennsylvania who had carried a weapon to her kid's soccer game was shot by her husband (at a game) ....both were nuts and both carried weapons to soccer games. I suppose they believed in having guns and ammo and thought they had the right. @@ Guns at a soccer game? Paranoid. They dropped out of school in 9th grade. So--do we really want imbiciles, junior high drop outs , packing heat , owning weapons without having been mentally evaluated first? Paranoid idiots at a soccer game. What is wrong with people/ THAT Shocked me. But I shouldn't be surprised. The USA is filled with gun totin' dropouts. It makes me sick.
