Re: Trump Embarrasses Himself and Our Country

Did you know that women have been calling Pence's office to tell him about their menstrual flow? This is why: "In the early days of the Periods for Pence effort, the organizer highlighted one aspect of the law — it requires miscarried fetuses, as well as aborted fetuses, to be "interred or...

Re: DH and I bought our first diamond!

I was wondering how this was going. I'm sorry this whole thing has taken so long. :shock: I hope it is worth the wait. Please let us know! I also received less than stellar customer service from her.

Re: Will the election results affect your diamond buying?

It will affect us, but not in a way that most people are expecting. The Pentagon decided to change the way they pay their physicians, but Congress has yet to send the funds, essentially. With the upheaval in Congress right now, I doubt it will come any time soon. They owe us 5 figures, and have for ...

Re: Please don't be a bystander

My teenager came home from school yesterday very upset because her English sub was a Trump supporter and told the entire class that immigrants were all dangerous criminals. You have to understand, that in our community less than 10% of the people here are white, and many are immigrants. There were p...

Re: Has the Electoral College outlived its usefulness?

I think this election is less about the dysfunction of the electoral college than showing us that our primary system is broken. The fact that Trump got out of the primaries at all is a joke. I find it ironic that people say the electoral college system works because they don't want cities dictating ...

Re: Do cats have a pecking order?

I appreciate all the advice! We do have multiples of everything, litter boxes, food and water, scratchers and so on. We had the shelter cat for almost 2 years.

Re: Brexit win was surprise, so too may be Trump victory

The Brexit polls were very close. The Presidential polls aren't close at all, so you can't compare Brexit to our election.

Re: Ankle Swelling

Actually, blood clots going to the lungs are often fatal. My dad threw a huge clot, and if he hadn't woken up right when he did he would have died then. The ER docs said most people don't wake up.
