tpeacock 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Why does ACA get to define our names?

It's in the programming of the filed where your name goes. As an IT pro, I know this and understand that many don't. However, it is quite amusing to read your take on this unfortunate matter, especially the take on someone trying to 'determine how many letters are in my name'. Sorry to burst your bubble, it's a programming glitch, not anyone determining a thing regarding your name. Perhaps armed with this new information, you could recommend to the agency you contacted this point of programming code error that needs their attention. You know, to help out the next guy, to help out the state get their site correct, to input valuable corrective action. Or just blame it on the system, the ACA, or even the President himself as they all are seemingly out to get us all.

And besides, that 3% of scientists have all the answers, don't you realize that in this new world, the minority faction is always right; how dare anyone believe in the majority.

'Everyone has an opinion and if it doesn't agree with your established opinion they are wrong. Obviously no room for thought there' Truer words are normally left out of these posting forums. The problem is that these words apply to far too many that post and yet fail to recognize their posts are following this sad truth. Each side accuses the other of being liars, name callers, averse to facts, etc. yet there is much truth to the simple truth that both side are guilty of the same. We haven't had a President since God knows when that didn't lie about something, and in many cases, it's for our own good. In the service they have different security clearance levels, and again, for a very good reason. It would be quite advantageous to let the public in on everything the Government does, as the security of our Country depends on us not being involved in everything; I'm not sure why that escapes many.

Yes, like any other roadway, except for perhaps an Interstate, you look both ways, and don't cross if traffic is coming. They used to teach that to kids, but starting with the '80's, kids started being taught they were special individuals with their own little beings that didn't need to concern themselves with being responsible as this was someone else's job to do. Drivers are supposed to watch for these innocent little babes (no matter their age) instead of them having to look both ways and be responsible for their own safe crossing. Just take a look and notice how many pedestrians you see stepping out into traffic without looking, especially around Whitman College.

That would be the Bur-Bee building. Having been employed there for 15 years, this isn't the first time I've heard the name misinterpreted, but I would say this is pretty pathetic that a reporter would have any confusion regarding the name. As for the article itself; why fight the inevitable? All the money, time, and resources wasted all these years fighting against pot truly needs to cease. Listening to so-called experts who have no actual user experience with pot is akin to heeding driving advice from, someone who never sat behinds the wheel of any vehicle, but read many books and such geared toward the subject at hand.

And if you look at the time stamps, downhill posted almost half a day after I did, I don't live on this site, I log in maybe every other week. But to reaffirm my stance, I don't care who you are, what political persuasion you follow, or any other divisions, once you become an adult, you should carry yourself as such.

I've been taking carp and listening to twists on my name forever, so your little pun goes in one ear and out the other. I don't hide behind any online name either, just as Mr. Singleton, I take total ownership of what I have to say, I don't hide behind any pseudo identity.

I did not notice that or I would have posted against that also. Though we may not agree on things, I have never maligned you, nor would I support others that do so. My point was and is very clear; 'Public discourse is a great freedom, why abuse the right by stooping to childish name calling' is meant for EVERY single poster that resorts to this childish action.

With all the glaring proof how damaging studs are, too many still continue to use them. It's a never ending display of blind ignorance, seems to be the current tide of life.

Public discourse is a great freedom, why do abuse the right by stooping to childish name calling. If you're truly a Nam Vet, you've been out of high school, and a grown adult for many years now, though your words don't show it. If you don't agree with someone it's easy to say so without using such a condescending manner!
