Re: NYT article on fat/diet/obesity (it's genetic and that's that)

I keep wondering how much has to do with the stuff we feed our livestock to make sure they plump up nice and quick. That might at least explain why we have more problem with obesity in the US than...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

One final thought: What folks here don't seem to grasp is that the problem goes beyond just having longer lines and less competent service at the DMV. There are a LOT of jobs in government that, if...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

I agree with you, when it's just a bad day. When it's a serious problem, though, a TRULY mature person will speak up and try to change things. Only a fool sees a train wreck coming and decides to go...

Honey, there's nothing alleged about it. I do damned good work. But thanks for proving my point. ;D

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

Again, though, TABOR was poorly drafted, at least in Colorado. It works fine, so long as everything stays stable. But if there's a recession, as has been the case a few times over the last decade,...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

You do read in! ;) I think a person can have an area in their life that frustrates them, even makes them angry, makes them want to scream, and still not be miserable. If you can't, then I feel bad...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

Hah! And WE get dissed for skiving! Sheesh! ;)



True enough. But the public doesn't always grasp what it is that they're voting on. For example, Colorado had a set of TWO that needed to be...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

Not true. It's crazy to say that because a person's work is specialized, they should not be paid comparably to people who use the same skills in different ways. My work is similar to investigation,...

Re: Pets. How strong is the bond?

Raw food is supposed to be the best. It's not just raw meat, though. You have to either make your own, which involves grinding organ meats and various supplements, or buy pre-made frozen foods, which...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

Interesting article on the effects Colorado's "TABOR" has had on its public services.

Re: The Amazing Race: which team are you rooting for?

I admire the heck out of anyone who can do that and be civil and nice to people along the way = one reason I really appreciated Danny and Oswald and Uchenna and Joyce. Me, I'm pretty sure I'd be one...

Re: The Amazing Race: which team are you rooting for?

Mirna also annoys me, and yes, the funky pigeon baby-talk is really almost offensive. Like if they talk to the cab driver like he's a Polish 5 year old, he'll understand them? But I really respect...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

I am doing something about it. I'm raising awareness. I'm screaming bloody murder. I'm not stupid enough to walk away from the pension when I'm only 4-6 years from it, particularly when my skillset...

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

What I do is work for the government. And yes, people have belittled that.



People are entitled to any opinion they like, but I'm entitled the opinion that they don't know shinola. ;) Most...

Re: Pets. How strong is the bond?

BTW, with the recent recall scares going on, I did some digging. Innova cat food (no, I don't work for the company) uses all organic ingredients, and they have their own manufacturing plant, so no...

Re: Psst! Wanna Buy a Slightly Used Colonoscope?

OK, I had both done. They call it an "over and under." :laugh: Different scopes used, thank God, and fortunately, lots of good drugs, so you don't really care WHAT they do!

Re: For anyone who has bought the bill of goods

Oh, by the way, I got hold of the figures the Dept. of Personnel has been using to claim that our benefits will be 85% of market. Turns out that was a bit of a fib. TOTAL COMPENSATION will be 85% of...

Re: Anyone else use this?

I've been using www.thedailyplate.com. It's more about dieting than nutrition, but you can track fats, carbs, calories, and a lot of nutritional info. Plus a lot of the foods at chain restaurants are...

Re: Is Univeral Health Care the answer?????

I think there are a lot of good ideas for solving the healthcare crisis. I think that we probably need to adopt some combination of several. Here are some I've seen that I think have some merit:

Re: Pets. How strong is the bond?

How strong? Paul Bunyan strong. 2,000 lb ant strong.

Just spent $1k on my two cats. Took them to the vet for blood work, because one of the foods they ate was on the recall list. One of them came...
