If you're in need of a cuddle session, look no further than Samantha Hess, a professional snuggler in Oregon who just opened her own professional cuddling store.

She charges $60 an hour for private cuddling sessions, and business is apparently booming.

Hess had 1,000 customers in the first week of her store opening.

Hess, 30, says her work is a form of therapy and is purely platonic.

This should have gone in another thread called : Black America's problem isn't white racism, however, someone complained to the mods and that topic got closed/locked. WARNING : the video on this link is really difficult to look at, but none-the-less, it's a problem that certain society people do not address.

"Lois Lerners "lost" emails are found!!!"

In the old days government data was recorded on a white original with 4 different color carbon copies. Then came copy machines. When documents were destroyed, someone always made a copy--just in case. Today data is electronically backed up, and the back up is backed up, ad infinitum.

There was never any doubt in my mind that the emails could be "found". What was amazing was that some folks actually thought they were gone forever.

>>Are you assuming your points set the status quo?

My points counter your claims. That you refuse to offer rebuttal, settling instead for flowery macro mumbo-jumbo, suggests you have none.

>>Won't happen.

Thanks for admitting your previous post was drivel. We don't normally get such revelations in these parts but it is quite refreshing.

>>The division here is a perfect example of why. one groups idea of what is the common good clashes with the other groups idea...

Clue: There are more than 2 (rather similar) ideas...and there's an empirically correct one. But thanks for playing. Have a consolation prize.

>>...and the humourous part is that neither follow what history has shown to be common good, instead following that which denies it.

The humorous part is that you think what you say represents defense of the common good.

For some reason you insist that gov't action, whatever it may be - and what others might call interference - is for the common good and not simply a power grab...yet you refuse to defend such a notion.

I've grown tired of your tedium... perhaps it'll work on those who are equally two dimensional. I'll leave you to that.

*yawn* I'm not on anyone's team. Do you not pay attention, just looking for points to attack?

>>>My preconceived notions are based on ideals not of your world.

Good Lord that's some flowery speech...meaningless, but don't it smell good?

The paralysis is in your inability to comment directly to points made.

>>...those in true power are working together throughout the world to increase their prosperity.

Yes, those in power are working toward increasing their prosperity. I am so glad you agree. Now if we could only get them working toward the common good we would all be better off, instead of just "those in power".

My preconceived notions are based on ideals not of your world. The only paralysis is among those former children left behind who still can't see beyond themselves and the doctrine taught since birth that division somehow brings about prosperity. While muddle in the dust calling each other names, those in true power are working together throughout the world to increase their prosperity.

What is your actual share in that or could it be while thinking you are on a winning team you are no different than all the pawns that have gone before in history, being used to others purposes while pretending you actually have some say.?

timothyu, "When representatives refused to work with the President that was called good political posturing. But if he plays the same game he is now labelled unco-operative?"

Well well well.

I guess it is pretty obvious who you voted for and defend.

So tell us what laws the legislators broke when they opposed Obama's ideas, the very ideas the American people have opposed.

And now Obama does more illegal UNCONSTITUTIONAL sleaze simply because he did not get his way.

The American people have spoken.

The representatives of the American people have spoken.

And Obama has said 'I don't care what the American people say. If Congress won't do what *I* want done, I will unconstitutionally go AROUND them and illegally do it myself.'

Even liberals are saying that these unconstitutional actions of Obama must be stopped before he does irreversible damage to the country and the Constitution and our system of law.

So go ahead and advocate for unconstitutional actions, timothy, just because you love THE ONE!

SMH

This is so sick and cynical.

>>>So the best option is ignore the good of the people in exchange for the good of the party which it seems is all it has come down to. Go team and never mind playing the game.

Don't assume things not in evidence. Often the best thing for the people is for Washington to get the [bleep] out of the way.

There seems to be a bias, which you're displaying, toward doing something, as though doing nothing isn't a real and at times more desirable option. As in the debate for regulating the internet, proponents bring up all sorts of reasons for Washington intervention but their concerns are all potential problems. They call for regulation of all the bad things that haven't even happened.

Sidenote: which party is it exactly, according to you, that calls for inaction for the good of the people?

According to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, 73% of the public say Obama should work with Congress on reforms. Just 22% say he should “sidestep Congress and act on his own using executive orders” — something the president has repeatedly pledged to do…

Another trouble sign for Obama: The age group most fervently opposed to him on immigration is the young voters he has successfully courted in the past. Fully 80% of those age 18 to 24 want him to work with Congress on reform, and just 15% side with Obama’s plan to bypass Congress if they fail to act…

When asked more specifically about an executive order to “slow deportation of undocumented immigrants by providing them with legal protection and work permits,” 63% of all those polled say they oppose Obama’s issuing such an order, with a majority of Republicans and independents strongly opposed. Just 34% of the public backs that move, though that includes 60% of Democrats.

hmmmmmmmmmm, makes sense to me.
