    didn't say socialism. I said destroying the middle class with over-taxation and making it nearly impossible to re-finance a house or pay off credit card debt can be dealt with without being "unfair" to the upper class.

    In Response to Re: Thoughts on beer in clubhouse AGAIN : You can do it!! I stopped cold-turkey about 35 yrs ago while smoking about three packs a day. One day on the way to work, I found myself checking all my pockets to see if I had enough to get throught the day.  I caught a glimpse of myself in the rear view mirror with a cigarette(my 3rd one)in my mouth....something clicked....I said to myself "what am I doing"? Well, the two packs I had on me went flying out the window along with the one that was in my mouth...right on the freeway in Phx., AZ. That was the last cigarette I smoked.

    Thanks amp!  I too went cold turkey & quit for about 7 years, WHILE WORKING AS A SALES MANAGER FOR ONE OF THE BIG 3 CIG. COMPANIES.  Talk about a Herculean task!!!  :(  Yikes!  Brutal, but I did it!  I've always liked bucking the system :)

    Unfortunately, I started again when my first daughter got really sick.  Just haven't been able to kick it since.  Gotta do it for this daughter!!!  My first would be happy about that!  :)

    Addiction is really bizzare.

    Actually, it's more difficult to break the psychological addiction as compared to the physical one.  Why is it that I could go cold-turkey, yet others need therapy, oral medication, patches etc.?  I'm certainly not any 'stronger'!

    I guess everyone's brain receptors are different.  Perhaps medicine will decipher it in the future and in the process also correct the 'liberal malformation' which exists in some people....LOL....just kidding.       Laughing

    Danny, America was founded on capitalism.

    I'm being taxed to death.  We don't need any more rules, regulations, social programs etc.  Just give me the money I make and I'll choose when and how to spend it.  I don't need government telling me what to do.  It used to be the other way around....I wish it still was.

    LOL!  Both sides think the other side must be mentally ill to have the views they hold socio-politically.  Very funny.

    I personally love it!  Who the hell would I have to argue with if it weren't for my Liberal Democratic friends.  I wish we could all kick it around more, but with some fun & good nature.  Too much demonization of the other side, on both extremes.  We all need to be a bit more tolerant!  I guess that's why I love to tweak the left so much with respect to their constant calls for tolerance.  LOL

    As for the prohibitionist left???  That was my original point with respect to smoking.  Make regular smokers & "fat" people take accountability for their abuses, but don't go down the prohibitionist path! Still a libertarian with respect to most things that are legal.

    As for cold turkey, I found you have to emrace the pain. Learn to love it! It makes you feel that much more powerful with respect to kicking its arss!

    how bout this. Obama bailed out the banks. the banks can pay us all back by actually honoring a refinance for 1-income families who actually pay their bills and mortgage on time. Sorry, your credit card debt is now your achilles heel, can't qualify to lower your mortgage, which in turn would allow you money to lower your credit card debt....vicious cycle.

    An excellent thread that deserves an answer. Was alcohol banned from the Red Sox clubhouse-yes or no? If it was banned, will Lackey be held accountable by management? Or will it be more of the same non sensical and utterly lame excuse making this organization has been doing for years now. It's just shocking, and honestly sad, to behold such weakness by management.

    He bailed out GM & the overbloated union pensions too.  They still owe us 50 BILLION, & the stock has tanked.  Bankruptcy was the logical answer, but that would not have bailed out the UNBELIEVABLE union pensions & benefits, like the ones bankrupting major cities in CAL. & other states.  Those cities are just the tip of the pension iceburg about to sink the U.S. oceanliner.  GM would have gone through legal restructuring, and ALL parties would have had to take a hit.

    That 50 Billion would go a long way toward helping people in your / my shoes.

    I was on vacation, but did I hear right that LACKEY was found to be the "snitch?"

    If so, it's beyond belief that he would be given an audience by mgmt & ownership for anything!!!  Totally beyond belief!  Then to be found out as THE snitch??????????  This was a joke, RIGHT!?!?!?!?

    TARP bank bailout was designed by the Bush administration in 2007. There were very few constraints on the way banks could use the money. Many managers used the money to pay out bonuses to management. The later amounts of bail out funds under Obama had restrictions on the use of the money which led to the idea that Obama was controlling GM, and the banks.

    The bailouts were just used to infuse confidence in the system.  Most of the banks didn't need them, and most of the banks didn't want them.  they were each forced to take a share, or else the banks that took them would admitting that they were weak, and would've been picked off in a heartbeat.

    Most of the banks paid back TARP as soon as they were allowed, and the gov't made money off of the banks.

    No, apparently it was a ban, it was a restriction.  The RS, either BV, LL, or BC, gave the impression that it was banned.  Apparently that ban was only at home, and the flight home.

    The bank bailouts were Bush's and they were all loans, and the banks have started paying them back--with interest--which means the taxpayers are making money. The car bailouts were also loans and Chrysler has paid their loan back. Ford didn't take the bailout money.

    So far $118.5 billion has been paid back.

    Cigs: Second hand smoke can cause cancer. This is a FACT.

    Alcohol: Alcohol is directly related to violence and death involving people who weren't drunk. This is also a FACT.

    When's the last time my cupcake crumbs caused you cancer?

    When's the last time someone went on a chocolate binge and plowed into a family of 4? (Go ahead and throw out some absurd blood/sugar joke)

    Yes, ANYTHING in moderation is fine. How'd my mentioning someone needing a drink every night to unwind get turned into a "social drink"?

    Go ahead and justify it all you want. And keep pointing fingers, it's much easier to paint someone as a loon than actually take a moment to evaluate your own choices. I'm no saint, I make plenty of bad choices, but I don't so ignorantly defend the damage they cause. Also, for the most part, my choices to consume bad things effects me and only me. When heart attacks behind the wheel attributed to high cholesterol approach the levels of drunk driving accidents, come talk to me then stooges.

    GM was a payoff to the unions for helping elect him.  Maybe it works, but the process was less than kosher.

    The pensions are a joke.  Let them go bankrupt and serve as a lesson.

    I guess you don't drive, fly, take a bus or the T anywhere.  You also consume no products that use any fossil fuel.

    And no - I don't smoke.  I despise smoking - can't stand the smell of it.

    i just refuse to lie about it.  Some guy sitting on the Boston common smoking a winston, is NOT a threat to anyone's health.

    True dat.  But the whole thing was arranged so the union investment in GM, and their pensions, would be sustained.  Anyone else would've declared bankruptcy, their stock would've been worthless, and a bankruptcy judge would've reset their post-retirement benefits.  Regular workers like myself would never get that kind of benefit.

    “I agree to disagree” This is a Red Sox forum and I’ll admit I get pulled into political discussions rather easily. So, I’ll let my political leanings rest for a different time and a different place.
