You Choose! Winning & Losing Stories

Tiger Woods' Fined
Tiger Woods was fined for spitting during the Dubai Desert Classic yesterday.  He apparently spit on the 12th green after missing a par putt in the final round.  The spit was allegedly a Breach of the Tour Code of Conduct.  We don't know how much the fine was...but I'm sure it will only be a drop in the bucket.  Via CNN

Fighting Bad Breath
Bad breath: we have some tips to help you fight it.  First, stay hydrated.  A dry mouth is a breeding ground for bad breathe.  Next, mints and mouthwash are good, but they're only temporary fixes.  Try green tea and cinnamon.  Also try eating crisp fruits and vegetables like celery or apples.  Via CNN

Playboy Mansion Outbreak
There is reportedly an outbreak at the Playboy Mansion...and its probably not what you're thinking.  According to the LA Times, dozens of people attending an event at the mansion got sick earlier this month.  They complained of respiratory issues, flu symptoms and pneumonia!  Some of those who got sick suspected a fog machine.  A rep for Playboy told the New York Post that QUOTE "There is no truth to the rumor that anyone caught anything at the Playboy Mansion."  They're cooperating fully with the health department.  Via LA Times

    I would start with having the senators and congressmen pay at least a part of their health insurance. I'm sure that would amount to a substantial savings. Maybe then they would realize what the rest of us are going thru.

    Please correct terminology and facts surrounding social security.
    First it is not an entitlement program–it is an insurance program that workers pay into.
    Second it has a huge surplus and can pay out all benefits through 2037. After that it can pay up to 70%.
    Third the way to increase revenue is not to raise the retirement age, but to raise the cap.
    Fourth stop conservation attacks against the middle class.The wealthy and corporations that send our jobs overseas are the real culprits. We need to support labor and the middle class. Without good wages there is no way to live an American lifestyle.
    As to Medicare reform–Part D simply enriches drug companies. Medicare must be given the power to negotiate lower drug prices. There should be more emphasis on prevention and healthy life choices so seniors don't end up taking 4-12 prescriptions. That is just crazy...

    I would like to bring to your attention about a new Army Rifle that is going to be deployed to Afghanistan called the XM25. The bullet in this rifle can be pre-programmed to explode to hit troops that are hiding. It will be deployed this month.
