Vatican says Pope Benedict XVI resigning

I take Scola and it's time for another Leo. Leo XIV. Scola looks like a Leo.Gee, and I would have guessed Sagittarius.

Ms. Flossie goes into get fixed tomorrow. This evening I had "the talk" with her, I do not know whether or not you guys do "the talk" but it is required for me whenever a pet goes in for surgery.Xena got done last week, and I had the talk with her. I explained that it would be scary and a maybe a li...

Grinols v. Electoral College (E.D. Cal. & 9th Cir.)

If, by close, you mean "possibly within the limits of the same galaxy," I'd agree that she might possibly be showing signs of approaching. But she's on a tangental path.LOL!

Addiction is one of those words that is really meaningless because it has too many meanings and no one is sure what is meant by it or what it is or what to do about it. It has to do with the release of natural substances in the brain that give us a sense of pleasure or well-being. Who wants to give ...

US Senate Filibuster Reform Proposed

I haven't seen anyone on this thread arguing against a "talking" filibuster and getting Eric Holder to clarify that the government doesn't have the right to use lethal force on US citizens absent an immediate threat is, in my opinion, a worthy result. I don't see Senator Paul's actions here being in...

Do our medical experts classify some drugs are "instantly addictive" for a large proportion of the population and would Methamphetamine be one such drug?

Many people believe that one must use a drug repeatedly before one can become addicted. Experimentation with speed is "not dangerous" if they do it only once or twice.For some people (and I would guess the majority, though it's just a guess), that turns out to be true. In my experience, individuals ...

I'm not totally against the drones. The FBI and other LEOs have the authority to kill terrorists in the act on US soil; police, the same. How is this different?

I remember singing "das deutsches Vaterland" but you're probably right. I bet the genitive is des deutsches Vaterland. Hmmm, do you use genitive after für?

I thought part of Jeb's appeal as far as the GOP was concerned was that he had some draw from the Hispanic voters. It seems to me that he just cancelled that out with his 'no path to citizenship' stance. That's not going pull anybody in that's not already in and it might drive more away. Egad!Here's...
