    Good morning Folks! I hope everything is OK, including the weather, and the kids if you've got them, and they're off to school maybe to learn what 9/11 is all about. Could someone educate me? I'm not always sure what someone may mean about "trolls". I know what Webster says, but here on these forums I understood at first that it meant someone who used someone else's SN to make a post, but it seems that it is used to discribe someone who posts something that another poster does not like what was said.

    The Presidents Job's Bill: $450,000,000,000.00 dollars divided by 1,200,000 jobs equals $375,000.00 per job.

    As a mother of 2 young girls over the age of 9 hrs old and a healthcare professional in the state of Texas, I was appalled at the attacks targeted at Gov. Perry regarding the hpv vaccine. This legislation does not coerce any parent or guardian to have their child vaccinated. Parents have the right to REFUSE this specific vaccine as I did for my daughters.
