  • Question about potential movie?

    There used to be a comic book from DC comics called "the Haunted Tank" It was about a WWII Tank that was haunted by the spirit of Civil war General JEB Stuart. The tanks commander was the only person who could see the ghost and received guidance and warning from the Ghost.

    Does anybody know if is being considered for a live action movie or do you think it would make a decent movie? Maybe if we brought into current times?

  • How long do you think is a reasonable time to be be on welfare/ public aid/ unemployment?

    How long do you think is a reasonable time to be on welfare/public aid/unemployment?

    Should a person, being of sound mind and body be on welfare for months/ years/ decades?(10 or more years)

    Should you be able to collect unemployment for 5 years straight or more?

    Should you be able to collect state aid for child and then have another child and collect state aid again and do this constantly?

    Should you be able to benefit from these programs having never contributed to paying into these programs or paying taxes via work or income tax?

    If you feel an individual is or has become ineligible for benefits what should be the cutoff or more appropriately what should be the motivator to get them back into the workforce ?

    That being said I understand children and the disabled can't pay into a system and they are more than entitled to benefits.

    But healthy able bodied adults are a different subject.

  • Why haven't we found a cure for Cancer.?

    We have donated and contributed million if not billions of dollars over the many years and it appears we are no closer to a cure than we were when we started.

    I wonder how much, has a percentage, of the money has gone into the pockets of people who just administer paperwork.

    Maybe it's pretty much the same with any cause, if there's money in it.

  • Why are their so many people trying to join the military while still trying get away with taking drugs?

    Why do people insist on smoking pot or using other drugs and then trying to pass through MEPS or get to boot camp?

    (example) I'm going to boot camp next week but I smoked yesterday and I smoked three times this week so far, do you think it will show?

    Folks.......THE US MILITARY HAS A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY!!! Regarding drug use....

    That means you don't get a pass, you don't get a waiver, you don't get another try.

    YOU GET KICKED OUT!

  • looking for the proper name of this flowering plant;?

    Years ago my family had a plant they called and "Aunt Suzy" or "Aunt Suzie". I'm not sure if it was an annual or perennial. I know we brought it in in the winter. It had large white flowers that hung down and were about 4 to 6 in long. I may be off about the size of the blooms, it's been 30+ years
