Re: Wasserman Schultz stepping down

Good! Funny how the liberal media is being pretty mum about the whole thing. You'll hear much more about Melania's speech than about any of the contents of the leaked e-mails.

Re: Hillary Clinton's powerful tv ad

I don't think it will have any impact on Trump supporters at all. They will think: He just speaks his mind, it's refreshing. The comments were taken out of context. My children don't look to politicians for role models, their parents should be and are their role models. Hilary is a liar and worse f...

Re: Coward Cop killers in Dallas

I think part of the question is whether police use lethal force too readily, when there might be other alternatives. Yes, so true. This "shoot first, ask questions later" BS isn't working out so well. If these officers are SO FEARFUL for their lives because of a black man reaching into hi...

Both my sons have a Top Secret/Secure Compartment Information - TS/SCI - clearance and would have been prosecuted for much less than what she just got away with. EXACTLY.

Just tell her that sorry, but it's not in the cards right now. If you're planning on having a baby sometime soon, explain to her that it's really not a smart use of funds.

Re: PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

Aww, JGator, he is such a cutie pie!! My MIL swears by "second child syndrome." She says they are usually much more adventurous and tend to keep parents on their toes far more than the first born. I hope he will start sleeping through the night soon for you!

Re: Teach your daughters not to get drunk

We all have to decide how much risk we want to take on. One way to cut down on risk is to not put yourself in a vulnerable situation.

Callie, hugs. Your situation was a horrible, terrifying one. Every woman should be safe in their own home. I already stated many times that I do not believe it is ever a woman's fault.

Re: Teach your daughters not to get drunk

OK so no woman could *ever* go out and have a drink too many?

This is rape culture. No, I won't teach my daughter not to drink too much so she doesn't get raped. I'll teach her that it's unhealthy, she might embarrass herself, or make choices shell regret later. But I will not tell her not to drink because she might get raped.

Re: Teach your daughters not to get drunk

I agree, lets teach sons not to rape. Also - date rape drugs. A woman can have 1 drink, or be drinking 7up all night long and end up with drugs in her drink. By your account, that's probably her fault for not watching her drink closely enough, or perhaps for not taking an 'anti-date rape drug' ahea...

Re: IDJ E-W Marquise Ring Design - Poll - YG or WG?

I like both, with a slight edge to the YG.

Incidentally, gold is classic and I don't agree that it goes out of style. Certain ring styles of the '80s might be out of style today, but YG is always a true classic. In other countries especially, it's basically the only metal anyone wears!
