Raised in a mainly Republican family, went full Democrat in college & that lasted until my first paycheck and addiction to news then evolved into a Libertarian - will see what comes next...

Welp from the latest it appears a settlement was reached so we may not get the satisfaction of the trial. "As part of a settlement agreement, under which neither Holmes nor Theranos is required to admit wrongdoing, Holmes will surrender voting control of Theranos and comply with a 10-year ban from serving as director or officer of a public company. She also agreed to return 18.9 million shares of stock, and to pay a $500,000 penalty." Also saw this: "The complaints further charge that Theranos, Holmes, and Balwani claimed that Theranos’s products were deployed by the U.S. Department of Defense on the battlefield in Afghanistan and on medevac helicopters and that the company would generate more than $100 million in revenue in 2014. In truth, Theranos’s technology was never deployed by the U.S. Department of Defense and generated a little more than $100,000 in revenue from operations in 2014."

@farsighted I'm Irish and take great offense at your statement... kidding, kidding! There may be something to your theory of the Irish temper's effect on America's violent history - the movie Gangs of New York offers some proof here!

Recent article in HuffPo points out that Isreal is the only western-style democracy in the Middle East. The U.S. military and the Israeli Defense Forces routinely collaborate with one another, and our intelligence agencies share intelligence. Our objectives and values are more closely aligned with Israel than with any other nation in the region. Recognizing Israel’s right to Jerusalem as their capital city is an important step in cementing our alliance. The same article also points out that every time Isreal compromised with Palestine they lost land and were quickly attacked for the gesture.

So I read the article but isn't the middle-ground point to honor the 2nd amendment and allow legal gun sales but try and make it harder for mass shootings by banning high-round magazines etc...? Thinking we should start discussing the commonalities that CAN be addressed with legislation.

There are three forms of depictions of nudity; pornography, art, and science or informative. Pornography is and always should be age restrictive. Even though art and science portray nudity, they do it for a different reason than porn and honestly they are nothing like porn. There are too many overprotective mothers out there who think anything with a pair of boobs in it is going to take away their little Timmy’s innocence.

Uber is not a taxi service. Uber is a technology that connects licensed drivers to people who need a ride. The drivers are independent contractors who use Uber’s software. The government shouldn’t be able to impose the same regulations they do on taxis because it’s a completely different service.
