    Tweeking Social Security with Private Accounts is American

    I don't by any means think adding private accounts to social security is a fix all but it has major benefits to the American worker and our families. I make allot of money as a full time banker, I also go to school full time. I work very hard and long hours, why is it that I can't have a small...

    Iraq Invasion

    Simon, Would you agree that the reason there is so much information available on Iraqi conditions is because America has brought a spot light to the country allowing all to see how things are now? Just imagine under the iron curtain of Saddam what went on before when no news agencies or...

    Iraq Invasion

    Sorry I meant billion, 300 billion was allocated so far only 165 billion has been spent! And no "less than 1%" is nothing compared to WW2 while in just one year of the war we spent 120% of the US GDP. And 9/11 has everything to do with Iraq, it shows us that if we sit on our thumbs and don't...

    Iraq Invasion

    How many Iraqis are free since invasion? 25 million How much did it cost America to free Iraq? $300 Million or About $12 dollars per Iraqi! What was the percentage cost of the war to U.S. GDP? Less than 1% How much did 9/11 cost America? Well over 1 Trillion dollars! Yes statistics are fun...

    Iraq Invasion

    You have made my point. How about you tell me, How many people had electricity prior to invasion? How many had jobs prior to invasion? How many went to school prior to invasion? How many had use of hospitals prior to invasion? How many had sewer and waste pick up prior to invasion? How many...

    Iraq Invasion

    Look, I am amazed that anyone in this time of instant information would be so inapt to prefer an isolationist attitude toward the middle east. The last century of war has shown that isolationism has caused more death and destruction in the long run rather than engaging possible American or...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    If you want to let your children drink under your supervision go right ahead, it is your right. My family is in the liquor business and I wasn't allowed to drink until I reached 21 even in the presence of my parents. I just don't want to see teen-agers getting plastic surgery out of peer...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    As in all my comments for this subject, plastic surgery for real needs such as hair-lip, nose jobs, recovering cancer survivor those are all fine with me and should be allowed to proceed. So lets stop going over it, I would like to see a reduction in healthy beautiful women seeking breast...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    Forget about whether you belief that its wrong to make it illegal for an 18 year to make that decision, but consider the physical question. Are young girls fully developed at 18? The reason we don't let 18 year olds drink alcohol is they lack the mental capacity and the proper responsible...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    Great point, I am 31 and have two tattoos I got when I was 18 and regret the fact that I did it! You can't put tattoos on the same level, tattoos cost $20-$400 and plastic surgery is $4,000 to $10,000. A tattoo is not a risky surgery, breast implants are! I am amazed at the fact you guys...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    I'm sorry but the body is not developed enough at that age nor is the mind, my view of life was entirely different at 18 then at 21. I don't think you can say with any truth that a 18 year old just out of high school has the right emotional state for that kind of decision!

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    One mental evaluation is not enough, that would only create a business of therapists that start cashing in on the practice as well. There is absolutely no reason for a young girl not fully developed to seek breast implants. If you have to wait till 21 to drink it isn't that big of a deal to...

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    I agree with your evaluation that not all plastic surgery but I truly feel sexual enhancement should be illegal until 21!

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    I thought about that but I think 18 is still to young, I personally grew 3 inches in height at the age of 19. I would say its probably safe to say that the body is fully developed by 21 and that would be just in time to grab a beer after surgery! 21 should be the age.

    I can appreciate your arguments, but I am not for any "million dollar study" to prove my point! I am sure you were only kidding. We conservatives do have a sense of humor too! :lol:

    Plastic surgery for Teen-agers should be illegal!

    I have noticed a disturbing trend in teens and young adults who feel that it is important to surgically alter their appearance before there body has a chance to fully develop. My friend was 17 when she received her first breast implant surgery and 19 when she received a second (bigger) implant...

    They surely own 90% of it! I don't think anyone can argue otherwise without forfeiting truth in the process!

    I don't know where you got that quote? ("well in this case its deserved") I surely didn't condone the action, just thought it was humorous! The left is well known for its strange and uncivil choice of desent, and I have heard of no charges filed against any of the recent pie throwers in epesodes...

    The only thing that bothers me about the spitting incident is that it usually falls in line with a liberal thing to do. Liberals are notorious for throwing pies, salad dressing, and other assorted items at people they disagree with. It must be a inherent trait for people with no ability to...

    Iraq Invasion

    We weren't attacked by the Germans in either war! Go look it up! We got into WWI because the Allied forces were loosing and they need our support. We engaged the Germans in WWII by following German U-boats and alerting British destroyers to their location. Germany had no intention of forcing...
