    You stupid people. Don't you think smokers hate themselves every f*ing day of their lives for smoking? Look at some of the people mentioned in this article. Lucile Ball, for example, died in her late 70's. My grandfather and grandmother and other grandfather and grandmother all died in their 70s after chain smoking. One had colon cancer. One had bone cancer. One had lung cancer. The other one, I don't know what he had. But all died old, in the 1990s. And medicine these days can keep people alive longer. I hate to say this but I wonder how many of you have ever looked at the fat on your bodies or the genes in your history. Do an test and download your raw data. Upload it to Promtethease for $5 and see what gene you're carrying that you have to worry about instead of pointing the f*ing finger at everyone else. Some die young. Some die old. Some live a longer life. Keep eating those cookies and leave us alone.

    While this is an excellent article overall, I wholeheartedly agree with the reader nonplussed by its use of the name 'Chiquita' for United Fruit Company, and was even more aggrieved by the retort. It indicates a belief that your readers are ignorant simpletons who wouldn't be able to handle proper name usage. If we are visiting your site, the chances are high that we are both educated and interested in furthering our learning, especially in terms of correcting a previous understanding of issues based on false or incomplete information. The activities described took place while the company was under the UFC name, so it seems to add, rather than prevent, confusion to use another that came into being later. Please do not be so patronizing in the future; it reflects either ignorance or distaste for your target market. Both are extremely off-putting to the very people you wish to attract to your site.

    The question isn't why havnt these people got ID its the effect it has on voting results, I mean look at those figures that's a lot of people, and my guess is they are in the lowest income brackets. I don't think there is a moral high ground in having ID and you can't think its more important than their right to vote as you said your not talking about the fraud issue and they do have to provide some form of proof of identity and I don't claim to know the issues/barriers immigrants or the elderly might have getting it but I'm sure its not as clear cut as laziness

    I love our Constitution, Our Founding Fathers were wise and set up a government to serve and protect the people and there inalienable rights. Unfortunately our federal government has drifted from this to a congress and bureaucracies that are self serving themselves rather than serving we the people. I appreciate the Convention of States for striving to restore our government to be in alignment with the principles of our Constitution as founded by our Founding Fathers.

    3 of 3 After the first two, it was a long 42 years before another state sponsored proposed convention call was introduced. History proves that we should listen to the States in 1898 that proposed the first two calls for an Article V Constitutional Convention because they were closest to and more knowledgeable about the original Founding era intent. COS' official position is they're not sure if general subject matter proposed amendments will stand up to Constitutional muster or legal challenge. But their subterfuge is: They're hoping to pull the wool over the eyes of enough state legislators and enough Citizens long enough to get us into a dreadful convention. Oppose any Article V Constitutional Convention calls.
