Gabrielle 2 years, 3 months ago on Our Opinion: Defiant Akin fractures GOP unity

Good try, asb. We all know you enjoyed your Oscar's breakfast even after reading my post. I am actually surprised with your comments. Usually your posts are quite substantive. S'pose this is what happens after a hefty meal and those digestive juices are working, requiring increased blood flow?

Gabrielle 2 years, 3 months ago on Our Opinion: Defiant Akin fractures GOP unity

Sure looks like a feeble attempt to make a mountain from a mole hill. I am pleased with Todd Akin's votes back when the stimulus and bailout votes were made. He had backbone then. He has backbone now. I am glad he remains in the senatoral race and choose to let this decision be made by the Missouri voters who put him in this position in the first place.Everyone has an opinion and rightly so. I just wish everyone would think for themselves and ask what EXACTLY did Todd Akin really do that people call for him to step down. Whether he misspoke or said exactly what he believed - its much ado about nothing. I am convinced Todd Akin is an excellent person to represent Missouri. I am convinced Todd Akin is quite capable of winning the senate seat AND doing well in representing Missourians. His conservative vote in the Senate seems crucial to get The US of A on the right track again.

that will teach me - I trusted someone who provided these numbers during a conversation. Will there be an uproar?

As things are at this time, after paying in all the working life, one receives $13,000/year in SS upon retirement. Do the accounting and that is peanuts for all the hard work a person has done. It actually makes good sense to privatize SS. Yes, there are risks. Unless someone comes up with a better idea than privatization, this is the best thing we have AND with the privatization, the money received annually will be far greater. When I learned this, I decided this is the best way to go.

Gabrielle 2 years, 3 months ago on Deadline intensifies pressure on Mo. congressman

I wish this time and energy was directed towards more serious things like improving our schools to address the high school drop out rate, for example. What about the crime - how can we address the root cause?

Gabrielle 2 years, 4 months ago on Mo. Senate candidate’s comments on rape stir outcry

Thanks, connor. This article is a good example of the mind-body connection. Personally, I don't see it as a stretch. I just don't know the details and from this article, seems the researchers don't know the exact details of stress and miscarraige. Thoughts and their corresponding feelings have biological responses. The lie detector test is probably the best example of this.

Sounds like you will not be voting for Akin. Are these recent statements the reason?

Gabrielle 2 years, 4 months ago on Akin says he ‘misspoke’ about rape in interview

Like the Biblical reference - so much I decided to read it in my version. The reference to Pharisees is not clear to me. Also, did Akin actually say he things too much money is being spent to feed the hungry? At this point as I stated earlier, he's got my vote. This, of course, warrants some additional attention. Was this recently?
