Jennifer’s Rules

Don’t be a douche-bag unless you want to be treated like a douche-bag.

In other words, if you make an ass of yourself, I reserve the right to make fun of you or simply delete your comment and ban you. I may edit your comment in order to ridicule you further. Any edits will be noted.

If you spot a troll, don’t feed it

I’m paying attention and will deal with them shortly. Don’t make yourself look like a tool for talking to someone I’m probably going to delete.

Spam should remain canned.

All uncanned spam will be disposed of.

Your words are your own

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, even if they do stink of assholes. You may choose to express your opinion in whatever words necessary, although if I start feeling like I’m at def comedy jam I reserve the right to censor your language. I don’t expect to need to exercise that right.

Also, we’ve all hit that submit button and then realized it’s not exactly what we meant to say. Or we’ve seen the glaring typo. Contact me. I will happily remove or edit comments at the author’s request.

  1. Just wondering if you support the Republican priority on cutting taxes for the rich at a cost of 700billion when the deficit is so large, approaching 14 trillion. Of that 14 trillion, 9 trillion of it was due to the Reagan / Bushes tax cuts which benefited the upper brackets far far far more than the lower bracket. In fact, Reagan raised the lower brackets. To me it seems time for them to pay.
    Furthermore, the money they pay taxes on is the money they DIDN’T spend on jobs or investing in their business. That money is not taxed at all because it is a business expense. Taxing more motivates them to put their money back into jobs in their business instead of taking it out of their business, paying taxes on it, so they can play with it.

    • I do support cutting taxes across the board. Rich included. And there is a basic fallacy in speaking of reduced tax revenue as a cost. The government should have to run a budget just like Americans do, spend less when less money is coming in.
      I work for a very rich man. He built his business from the ground up. No one handed it to him. I think it is perfectly fair that now he has a big house and lots of nice things. He made that money by investing in his business which is now a multi-billion dollar enterprise. Why would I support a policy that would ‘make him pay’ for creating a company that employs me? For creating a company that can afford to give me a generous Christmas bonus in the middle of this recession? For continuing to grow and hire people? A company that pays out of pocket for my medical care? No way! I’d far prefer to give him a medal. I hope to be in a position like his one day.

  2. My name is Katie and I’m the daughter of a combat medicine doc. Blue Diamond Strategies is a executive security agency made up of young Iraq/Afghanistan veterans. We are extremely pro gun, pro military, and pro America. Please feel free to check out the link to our company video and we would be more than thrilled if you would post it on your blog, tweet, facebook, etc. Our goal is to employ as many veterans as possible and the sharing of American PSD is paramount to that. There is some really great gun footage that I think your readers would love. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

  3. I am new to BlogHer and looking around to check things out. I was holding my breath while reading the above comment. It was very refreshing to see how you dispelled the deception that was being spun. Just wanted to say good job, and very tactfully done.
