    Glenn Beck's "expert" is a psychologist, not a medical doctor. He may be smart, even correct, but his credentials are bogus.

    It is my understanding that there aren't enough test kits to go around and they are trying to use the limited number available in the most effective way possible. That isn't just random testing of...

    I am just so happy that I don't regard myself so badly. I think you should seek counseling for such feelings. You don't have to be that way.

    I don't think that an economic rescue package should contain utterly unrelated controversial legislation like elements of the "Green New Deal". That is an unethical attempt to force unrelated change...

    Jeff's report makes me question the advisability of using this product at all. I don't want my installation to degenerate and become questionable after only 5 years.
