    Prescriptions for over the counter cough/cold medicine??? What about the millions of Americans who do not have health insurance? OTC medication is sometimes the only way that these folks can get relief when they are ill with common ailments. Why don't we just regulate everything? I think we should need prescriptions for know if you eat too many you get fat and then you can have a heart attack and die. I

    There is a limit to regulation and I think that the DEA is way off base on this one. Without health insurance, I would hate to have to go to my corner drug dealer to buy Robitussin.

    Either tax cuts for all Americans... or no tax cuts for any Americans. Make up your mind Washington – cut have it both ways.

    Just why is this the most deadliest year in Afghanistan for our troops there? Could it be because of the person in the White House?

    Bombs, bullets, hate, racism are equal opportunity destroyers. When they go off, everyone in its range dies one way or another. Remember not only did Muslims die, as a result of the planes crashing into the twin towers, there were others who were injured, there were Muslims who still are suffering from the dust filled with toxic dust/chemicals, there were Muslims who risked there lives and died being first responders. American bigots acts as though Muslims had a force field around them because they were Muslims and the terriosts only targeted "certain American"...remember they kill their own all over the world. We all need to rise above self-righteousness and be true to thyself..."IN GOD WE TRUST" is the way for us to heal and prosper. Psalms 118:8-"It is better to trust in the Lord, than have confidence in man".

    Why not build a circle of Faith circling ground zero,The First Family of Faith, including all religions, who worship in America, separate but equal, working in alignment, being the example " IN GOD WE TRUST" announcing, we the people, come together as one, in Faith to love, live, prosper,and worship,in peace calling on our higher power. Only one door to enter, one path to walk, to get to their place of worship.
