| Political Talk|| How many of you were for Net Neutrality but are now against it? - Jax-Tiger on 2/26/15 at 4:03 pm|
It seems like more and more people are coming to a conclusion that this is a bad idea.
Oh, sure, there may be some pluses that come out of it, but holy crap, do you really want to let the politicians take over the internet? Whichever side of the political spectrum you are on, imagine what would ...

| Political Talk|| What is wrong with our immigration system? - Jax-Tiger on 2/25/15 at 3:39 pm|
I hear the President say that the system is broken and needs to be fixed. I don't hear many people disagreeing with him that we need massive immigration reform.
Just what exactly needs to be fixed?

Either my company is passing on more of the co...
| Political Talk|| How do we restore civility? - Jax-Tiger on 1/21/15 at 3:21 pm|
How do we restore civility when this administration keeps saying that we need to stop the political mudslinging when they keep saying that the Republicans want to kill old people, make seniors choose between food and medicine, want to put blacks back in chains, want dirty water and oil, want poor pe...

| Political Talk|| Gas prices in Oregon - Jax-Tiger on 12/12/14 at 1:10 pm|
We Oregonians are too stupid to pump our own gas. We pay for it at the pump. This is how we "create jobs".
Prices in Oregon flucuate wildly - even from station to station. If you're visiting, you'd best pay attention to where the best prices are, or you could end up paying way to much at the ...
| Political Talk|| Political Correctness Run Amok - I can't use the word "bomb" - Jax-Tiger on 12/4/14 at 1:23 pm|
I was in a meeting today between me (IT) and some folks that we support on the business side and Imentioned that one of our Payroll interfaces had "bombed". One of the managers on the business team told me that I should use the word "failed", instead of "bombed".
No big deal, but really? Where ...

| Political Talk|| Was officer Wilson not indicted - Jax-Tiger on 11/25/14 at 4:44 pm|
because he is white? Or was he not indicted because the lack of evidence was so obvious that it overrode the intense pressure to indict him for something?
If I was on that GJ, it would have had to have been glaringly obvious that Officer Wilson did [b]NOTHING[/b] wrong for me to vote not to indi...
| Political Talk|| Immigration Questions - Jax-Tiger on 11/21/14 at 11:45 pm|
1.) Do you believe that we should seal our borders to stem the tide of immigrants coming up through Mexico? Why or why not?
2.) What should we do with the imigrants that are already here illegally (and those that are still coming across the border)?
I'm trying to figure out why this issue is ...

I'm paying nearly $200/month for Comcast cable. I get internet and Basic cable with HD package and two HD boxes. No premium entertainment packages. I've been a Comcast customer for many years. It seems like us long-time customers subsidize the new customers.
Any suggestions for getting this bi...
| Political Talk|| Giving the illegals green cards - Jax-Tiger on 11/7/14 at 9:31 pm|
If President Obama uses his executive authority to give millions of illegal aliens green cards, what will that happen to the job market in America? Currently, these people are picking apples and washing dishes - doing the low-paying, under-the-radar jobs that many Americans won't do. They were nev...
