Dying girl, 10, spurs fight over lung transplant fairness
Tue May 28, 2013
My family spent 5 1/2 years on the transplant list...waiting for a call...a call that never came. When it is the person you love who is suffering...who will die without this one and only thing that can save their life..."fairness" simply doesn't some into it. If I could have bumped, jumped over or r …
London braces for violence ahead of Margaret Thatcher's funeral
Fri Apr 12, 2013
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams commenting on the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said: “Margaret Thatcher did great hurt to the Irish and British people during her time as British Prime Minister.
'You've got to be kidding me': Maryland woman gets a ticket for driving 63 mph — in a 65 zone
Tue Mar 12, 2013
I soooooo wish they had this law here in the UK. One of the biggest driving shocks I received when I moved here was that people routinely drive 20 miles or more BELOW the speed limit...without penalty! On motorways, on two lane roads (even two lane roads where the speed limit is 60mph by the way!) a …
Two injured in shooting at Ohio temple
Tue Feb 26, 2013
Were the injured people mormons??? Cause if so...then I guess they forgot to put on their Magic Protective Underwear this morning huh?!?! Magic underwear...lol...cannot believe we almost elected (as president) one of these gullible cult members. LOL again.
School shooting drill in Illinois included sound of gunfire
Wed Jan 30, 2013
I have never heard of anyone suing the schools for making us hide under our desks for five minutes in case the then-USSR fired nukes at us from when I was at school. (How the desks were gonna protect us, I still have no idea...?) We weren't "desensitized" or "terrorized" We weren't filled with years …
'Sextortion': Man tricked women into posing nude on Skype, FBI says
Wed Jan 30, 2013
Interesting how almost no one here seems to be outraged about the criminal behaviour of this individual, the trust he betrayed, the laws he broke, or points the finger at him for the amoral-lying-thieving-creep he appears to be. NO. Let's blame the victims. The people who say the victims are in any …
Teen's confession: Horror film inspired murder of mom, sister
Fri Jan 25, 2013
Maybe...just maybe…we should try something new. Like try treating the cause of this recurring issue, instead of just treating the symptoms. In medicine it is thought the best road to health is to be proactive. For instance, I am sure we can all agree that: While it is good and healthier to re …
Fat-shaming may curb obesity, bioethicist says
Thu Jan 24, 2013
Shaming works huh?!?! Okay then...let's take this ball and run with it! We'll just: Tell all kids not doing well in school that they are stupid and have no future. Tell all anorexics that they are ugly and no amount of control can change that. Tell all people who are suicidal they are depressing and …
Waiter hailed as hero after standing up for boy with Down syndrome
Wed Jan 23, 2013
Confused here... The people who were asked to be moved seemingly didn't throw a fit, they were apparently polite about it when they asked to be moved, they asked that their own seating arrangements be changed and no one else’s, and reportedly said nothing whatsoever to the child directly nor t …
Tragic Savita case reignites abortion debate in Ireland
Wed Nov 14, 2012
I feel that Ireland's laws are the venue of the Irish citizens. That being said... As an American to whom it appears Roe v. Wade is in danger every time we have an election and there is the slightest chance we will elect someone conservative enough to repeal it, I would have to say we should perhaps …
