I can’t believe that anyone put anything on facebook that they would have been upset to see on the front page of the local newspaper. If you are putting information on a banking or credit card website, yes that needs to be private, but facebook is specifically intended as a way to connect with other people and it’s obvious that it you don’t get to choose which people.
That’s why I like this one too. MOST of the time, people are civil even when they disagree. I don’t mind a good fight when I have time to be bothered with it, and when it actually makes a difference. But, just exchanging opinions is more interesting and gives you some insight into what the crazies who just trade insults are thinking ( I use that term generously).
Any system that actually allows humans to be in charge is going to be complicated and nasty, because when people want their own way they can be nasty, and the manipulations they come up with do indeed get pretty complicated. A variation on the theme that Democracy is the worst system of government except for all the others.
No word is an insult unless intended as one, and no word can be insulting unless the person at whom it is directed chooses to accept it as one.
You do realize that you just didn’t stay away from the comments section?
I knew a couple- husband was football coach, wife English teacher. School in Texas hired them both and just made the English classes small enough to give her some students. And, he found out when he’s been there a few months that his salary was 1/4 higher than the superintendent’s.
If you have any secrets or money, they are not safe on the web. Since I don’t have either one, I figure I can do pretty much what I want to.
He never signed a contract, and if he sues her, he just makes her story for the tabloids that much more valuable. If there had never been a contract in the first place, he could deny the whole issue with at least some possibility that he would be believed at least by those who want desperately to believe anything crap he puts out. He is either guilty of an affair with her or of being really stupid and a bit nuts. I suspect both.
Anyone who has survived in DC for four years and isn’t paranoid is way too clueless to be president.
The problem with people like you is that you don’t understand the difference between a Democracy and a dictatorship. If we elected a dictator, we could expect that they would do exactly what they say they are going to do for two reasons. First they don’t have to worry about being reelected so they don’t have to pay any attention to public opinion and second, they don’t have two other branches of the government to negotiate with if they want to accomplish anything at all. Obama wanted single payer health care. He got Obamacare, because it’s what he could a sufficient number of people to agree to. When any politician tells you what he wants to do, there’s a pretty good chance he likes the idea. It may not be on the top of his agenda, and he may be saying it because he knows that’s what the audience wants to hear, but it’s highly unlikely that he’s going to promise something he wouldn’t like to do. Once, elected, however, no one is able to do what they said they would like to do, because this ISN"T A DICTATORSHIP.
