I have been trying to about 1.5 years to lose weight and zero and I think it is a med.

I even joined a gym about 3 weeks ago and have a trainer once a week. I do about 20 minutes on the bicycle and then weight train on the machines. I end up sweating all over. I have been going 3-4 times/week

And I have lost ZERO pounds. I have cut down on my eating and gone for things like no fat yogurt. I have had my times with cake but I did that before the exercises.

So I started going through my medicines and I found on called Mirapex , (Pramipexole) that I take for restless legs and that one I have been on for about 2 years. It does say weight gain can be a side affect.

I'm going to stop it and find something I can take if I have a bad attack of that hellish symptom.

My question is: Has anyone ever taken this and gained weight?

Or is there a list somewhere that tells you what drugs do not make you gain weight?

Thanks so much!

Can someone check my math please?

The problem as I see it is tax breaks to the top .1% and 1% and maybe the top 10%. The top .1% owns 90% of this country's wealth! And you can't tell me that billionaires are going to hurt with an extra 1% on their taxes, (most have their money in funds that they do not have to pay taxes on. Mitt Romney only paid 15% on all his money in the year that he ran for president.)

If the 615 billionaires, (from Google), were taxes just an amount to equal 1 billion (1% or .01% I can't get the number from the calculator) the amount going to the government would be 615,000,000 million.

SNAP - Food Stamps benefits cost the government about 74 billion. And that leaves 541 billion left for the government to spend on roads, education, and a host of other things that we now do not have the money to spend on.

AND WHAT IS SO UNFAIR ABOUT THAT IS, Walmart pays its employees, (along with most of the other box stores) about $8/hour. They are the working poor and they have to get food stamps to eat!

Does anyone here remember a video of a man at a pulpit

saying things that people did that were very bigoted and you thought he was talking about one group of people and in the end he reveilles that he is speaking of another minority group.

It was shocking to realize that your beliefs were the same just against a new group.

I keep trying to find it on Youtube and can't

The NRA's travel agency that takes people to kill big game needs to get emails and calls

They have it in small letters that they take people over to Africa, (to kill animals like lions, Elephants, Giraffes and other rare and amazing animals although they don't say that exactly)


Here is their email. info@nraoutdoors.com

And some other information


Contact us at:

NRA Hunter Services
510 West Atlanta Street
Broken Arrow, OK 74012
(918) 258-7817

Let's give this information out to as many people as possible. Maybe a bunch of emails and phone calls might cram their system.

I'd like to apologize for the thread I started and explain a little why I did it


This is the thread and I used information from a right winged site. I thought I had looked and found a qualified source like CBS but apparently I didn't.

I have this thing where I literally go to sleep right in the middle of reading a sentence. Then I force myself awake and fall right back to sleep. I have even fallen asleep standing up. It happened at the bank a couple days ago and the teller kind of yelled a little loud and said she saw me nodding off.

And the thing is I don't want to go to bed. I want to continue reading and doing stuff even though I can barely function.

So I'm sorry for the bad OP.

I just was over checking the Obamacare calculator for a woman I just met

who has no insurance. I put in "Obamacare calculator' and the first few sites that say they are part of "Obamacare" wanted to know if the person had cancer, mental illness, Diabetes, Liver disease and other things and even if you were pregnant"

Can they add on extra costs for these things? Because I think if you go through the exchanges they don't ask you anything except if you smoke

I thought those things do not matter anymore!!! I finally found the Keiser Family calculator and that was helpful.

One of the started 'You yearly income' at $29.000.

It pisses me off that these companies are the first ones when you get to a google page about the AHC. I wish Google would take notice and put the actually government's page first

What happened to the first several episodes of "The Following" on Netflix?

I found season 3 but it started at a later episode. Now I just checked and season 3 is not there!


I've found it online a couple places but you have to pay for it. I'm already paying for Netflix which is where I watched the first 2 seasons!

Anyone know?

My conservative brother told me at dinner last night that the civil

war was a war of aggression against the south. I tend to get excited and he stayed cool and collected so I was the one that lost.

Any good pages that explain why the war was because of slavery and something to debunk what he said? He said his wife always said that but she is from N. Carolina

Thanks in advance

I have to paint the top of the shower. Can I use spray enamel?

I had to paint on little strip on top of the windows and I swear I get paint all over the place. It is like a held the full paint brush and did a hip hop dance all over the place!

So I have this enamel paint and I thought it would be a lot less messier.


A cool informative video about systemic racism. I learned things.

It is on Facebook and I don't know how else to link it.
