OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 17, 2018:
I disagree. Boundaries are not about being completely independent of others. They are about making demanding respect, particularly for those who do a lot for others. When someone gives and gives and it becomes expected and the givers needs aren't being met or even considered that is an unacceptable situation. Women are particularly bad about this. We frequently make a life centered around meeting everyone else's needs. When the kids grow up or our husbands decide we're boring because all we ever talk about is family/kid stuff, we're floored. It happens because we forget to nurture ourselves. People take givers for granted and walk all over them. Boundaries are about retaining our individuality. Not becoming useful lil' stepford wives(or husbands) and demanding the same respect and consideration we show others.

"Imminent civil unrest" over Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid? I think we're being a tad alarmist here. The time of the strict constructionists is over and done. The founders also did not envision a standing Army. Times change.
OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 11, 2018:
@Paul4747 the private sector has captured government, which was the only thing restraining their greed. We need to take that back and get rid of the idea that " big government is bad" . Government is and should be an institution run by its citizens with those citizens interests in mind. What we have rn is a government run by big business for big business.

AmelieMatisse comments on Jul 11, 2018:
The fact that unemployment is down is very misleading. Once you stop receiving unemployment benefits and you are still not working, you no longer are counted on the rolls of unemployed. Also people are working in jobs where they earn less money and a lot of people with kids need a full time and ...

Lukian comments on Jul 11, 2018:
Although Consent to be Governed is a plain English sentence, it would require much legalese to explain every repercussion of it's meaning.
OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 11, 2018:
We don't need to know every repercussion to know that that principle is being grossly violated.

Underestimating IMO. We have a growing segment of the population who is economically and politically marginalized. It's tinder for political unrest.

Why would someone immediately equate Spanish to Mexicans? Like Spanish is only spoken in Mexico and not in a country like lets say Spain? I am offended by this and will immediately fly to all Spanish speaking countries to apologise for this disgusting behaviour

What is the alternative?
OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 10, 2018:
The alternative is focusing on workers rights, fair wages and labor practices. We have been worshipping management and administration far too long and far too loudly. These folks are NOT the people "creating wealth". Relative wage caps for CEOs and administrators( I belive iceland caps at 100ร— the lowest paid workers salary), livable wages, possibly a UBI giving workers financial freedom to walk away from bad businesses without facing homelessness would be good starts.

Ok, my solution to this dilemma is this (at the risk of getting hate mail) - men’s lives are enriched by women. Women’s lives are simply made burdensome by men. Do you really want an overgrown baby to look after? Do you want someone to mansplain everything to you as you cook him meals, and watch...

High maintenance, but, with that being said I do like quality and sometimes I’ll buy name brand because I want it to last. I have a pair of Timberlands I’ve been wearing for over 30 years.
OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 10, 2018:
Some name brand is quality but A LOT of it is simply junk with a label slapped on. Personally I'd rathet get stuff made by local companies. People I can talk to about their matetials and processes.

OpposingOpposum replies on Jul 9, 2018:
@Piece2YourPuzzle you do know I don't care,right? For the record I prefer chubby dudes. I set my profile to "here for community"for multiple reasons, one of those being the fact that I was seeking to date obviously gives some guys the idea its ok for them to comment negatively on my body type. I was only kind of joking about walking away from the negativity of dating. No one makes it worth my while to deal with the abuse I get from total strangers and I know damn well I'm not the only one.
