Mar 5th 2009 11:10AM Boy can I think of some good lines for that question! ;) LOL, however, I'll restrain myself and just stick to the straight answer. Too much viagra can cause you to have a heart attack or heart failure.
Mar 5th 2009 11:04AM KG - Unfortunately, yes. There is a healthy (or unhealthy in this case) black market trade in Viagra, just as there is with other prescription meds.
Mar 3rd 2009 5:16PM We Americans are so ridiculously Puritannical, and that is ALL this debate is really about - the Western demonization of a woman's breast. It is common, very common, for women in other countries to breastfeed until children are a few years old. There is NOTHING wrong with it. I only wish I could have breastfed my son longer, but I was young and going to college full time as well as working full time and after the first several months, my schedule did not allow me to feed him often enough or to express often enough to maintain my milk supply. I would give anything to have it to do over. It is THE healthiest choice for a child both physically and emotionally.
The following is a very good article on breastfeeding by a professor at Texas A&M.
Mar 2nd 2009 9:46PM I don't believe that paroled sex offenders are allowed to have ANY contact with children. Why wasn't his parole revoked? If I saw a sex offender talking to MY child, I would assume he was in the process of attempting to harm my child (seeing as how he isn't supposed to have contact with children) and I would respond accordingly. Isn't that what this mother did?
Feb 28th 2009 1:27PM I did NOT work five years at my company, building business it would take years to replace, just to quit. After several demands to my boss for his behavior to stop, I finally told my company higher ups what was going on, and they moved the offender out of my office. He pretty much self destructed on his own shortly thereafter. I got a confidential settlement from the company - that they offered, apparently afraid I might file an EEOC report - and was allowed to work reporting directly to them, not to my old boss. In the paperwork, they did NOT cover my old boss legally, in case I wanted to seperately sue him in addition to the settlement they gave me. It turns out that he was embezzling funds from them as well - we all found out later.
This type of guy plays fast and loose with all the rules and companies who are smart find they are better without these men (or women as the case might be). I chose not to sue my old boss seperately since I knew that A) He was filing for bankruptcy and B) he had three kids, C) I did not want to ruin my own rep is our small community.
I did think about quitting many times and even saw a therapist during the saga. But I decided that no way was I giving up what I had worked so hard for in terms of my business and my client base, so instead I started gathering evidence and documentation. Nobody does that to me and gets away with it.
There were no negative repercussions for me. In fact, I made four times as much money after the incident when I was able to report directly to someone over my bosses head. That's not including the settlement. Women don't necessarily have to sue, but they don't have to turn tail and run either.
I should also note that this was serious sexual abuse and harrassment. The expectation of sex in return for commissions due to me, etc. I think sometimes women are way too quick to take offense at off color remarks or jokes when such things are not really an impediment to job performance. But when someone is physically touching you sexually, extorting sex, or tying your compensation to sexual favors as happened in my case, THAT is sexual harrassment, if not abuse, and I don't think that a woman's only option in that case is (or should be) to quit and run to another company. It is certainly a woman's CHOICE to do that, but we need to back her up all the way if she chooses to report it and demand her rights instead.
Feb 27th 2009 9:53PM You know, my son uses x-box live all the time and it makes me angry that microsoft violated, what I believe to be, someone's civil rights in this situation. My God, the language people use - including my son, who is 20 yrs old - gets VERY rowdy and nasty. And its someone's sexual orientation that bothers some parents? Give me a break. If you consent and pay for your kid to use xbox live, KNOW that they are going to be exposed to all kinds of people/language/circumstances. The games themselves are no walk in the park either most of the time. If you are deeply bothered by any of this as a parent, then don't pay for the service for your kids. But quit trying to censor everyone else.
Feb 11th 2009 11:26AM Oh come on, you can still do this and fill in roles on the occasional Law & Order episode at the same time. What gives?
I know I'm a seldom commentor, but I'm an always viewer. Geesh! I hope you turn up again somewhere else viewable soon.
Feb 2nd 2009 1:54PM Actually, I expected it to be really stupid and was actually quite pleasantly surprised. I thought it was brilliant actually. I would have thought they were really actors.
Feb 2nd 2009 12:07PM Being wealthy, conservative, and Republican does not equate to being moral. It does seem as though people forget that sometimes.
Feb 2nd 2009 12:04PM Yep, she's an icon helping children around the world. Helped them right out of their pain medication, lost the doctor on the humanitarian team his license doing it, used the money her father made with some very unsavory characters - there IS that journalist his business associates blew up with the car bomb after all - and then disavowed her half-sister completely so no one would notice she was keeping all the family money to herself. And let's not forget running off with the husband of a disabled woman who, at the time, had minor children at home. She's a charmer all right.
