Dumpsters are the biggest issue. Grocery stores, apartment complexes, condominuums, etc must secure the dumpsters. Why are there no regulations or no enforcement if there are regulations?

zozobee 3 years, 4 months ago on Rick Akin: Hope springs eternal

Ridiculous. Mr Akin, your opinion piece is ridiculous. The budget proposed by Paul Ryan is ridiculous. The assertion that it will "reduce spending by $6.2 trillion throughout 10 years" is a complete fabrication. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that, because of increased tax cuts in the proposal, debt will climb much more in the next 10 years than if nothing at all is changed. The proposal privatizes Medicare but does nothing to cut back its costs. That would be a disaster. The vouchers would nowhere near cover the cost of private insurance. We would either have seniors forgoing insurance and being uncovered (that, by the way, means we would all end paying for the care that they will eventually all need) and losing all of their savings, houses, etc or we would just have to increase the cost of the vouchers, spending any proposed savings. Are you or your friends or your parents unhappy with medicare. I doubt it - it is the most cherished program by the people who use it. Ask them!! It is a critical safety net. Proposed saving in lives and $$ from the Planned Parenthood changes - fabrications. Ryans budget will quite clearly cause more abortions and create an additional cost to the country far beyond the proposed savings. Planned Parenthood does family planning. That is a good thing - their good work prevents unwanted pregnancies - in 2006 their work prevented what would have been over 800,000 abortions resulting from 1.9 million unwanted pregnancies. I could go on and on - Ryans budget and Akins buying into it clearly reveals partisan politics and rhetoric at its worst. At its worst because it puts this country more in the hole and places our most vulnerable citizens at great risk.

Mr. Ross, Thank you for voicing your opinion. I could not agree more with all of your thoughts.

Lovely restaurant - my favorite. However, I will be abstaining as long as Foie Gras is on the menu. There is no humane way to obtain that product.

Interesting thoughts TWiII but you acknowledge the problem - if one is black or hispanic or middle eastern one gets "step out of the car" for that reason and that reason alone - that is not just! These persons do not have the option (or desire, I am quite sure) to change their inherent "personal appearance" - it is who they are.

Investigating someone who looks suspicious is very different than investigating someone in a coordinated fashion because of their ethnicity or the way they dress, or the way they wear their hair. The Oklahoma City terrorists were young white rural type males - maybe we should be targeting this particular group of individuals. Do you really want to be in a position of law enforcement having the capability to stop and investigate you or your children because of what you look like?

Maybe you should move to Arizona, yampavalleyboy - then you could have anyone who looks suspicious or "illegal" pulled over for investigation.

Dr. Milligan, Thank you for your comments. I agree that change is long overdue. I honestly hope that we are now going down the road to a just and humane system of care that will no longer be based on a business model. It is ludicrous to imagine that a for profit insurance system could ever have the best interest of the patient in mind.
