    Best answer: I live in interior Alaska. 50 yr Alaska resident. There are important things you need to do. First, get either studs or winter tires. For trucks and cars, get 50# sand bags (usually two or three do the trick depending on how large your vehicle is. Have a block heater to keep your engine warm. Slow down before the stop signs and lights, use your gears (yes even if you have an automatic). Stay back from others and keep out of the packs of cars that grow on a freeway or expressway. Most of all, use your judgement. Drivers who are scared, or ones who don't have enough experience driving in treacherous winter conditions need to either move or do yourself a favor and practice putting your vehicle into slides in private areas where you wont' hurt anyone. See what it feels like to spin out, all the way around, and what it will take you to stop if you jam on your breaks at the last minute. When you first hit the road, and your not sure of how icy it is....wait till no vehicles are behind you, and slam on the breaks. See how bad you slide. Then you know what your dealing with and know you better keep the speed down, attention to the road and not your phone, and use caution. Survived this long doing all this without incident in a place that most runaway crying from because of the cold. Don't be afraid to drive in the winter, you make yourself a target. Either get ok with it, or park it till the spring. Other drivers will thank you for not causing more accidents.

  • Should people with preexisting conditions just rely on charity instead of getting affordable health care?

    Best answer: They should just go to the emergency room so it costs more, and then not pay the bill so it gets written off to the government. It's such a better system than the cheaper solution of people being able to go to the doctor before their condition gets out of hand.

    Best answer: The 70s were great years. There seemed to be tons of money around, everyone could afford a good car, jobs were plentiful, wages were good and all sorts of new electrical appliances became available. There was little violence and most people only had to work 40 hours and little overtime. Only one parent had to work and generally mom was home waiting for you with a snack. Mothers cooked nice nutritious healthy home made meals and fat kids were very rare. There was plenty of free time and there seemed to be space. Kids rode their bikes around the neighbourhood without fear of violence or paedophiles. There were no video games or cell phones and people actually talked to each other rather than just looked and played with their phones. Kids played active sport and games and were very healthy. This good health meant there were very few with Asthma or nut allergies and kids looked and were active and healthy. Literacy and numeracy were very high and kids overall were respectful and reasonably well behaved but those school kids who misbehaved could expect several whacks of the cane on the palms of their hands or on their buttocks. Parents divorced rarely and kids had the security of having at least one parent at home all the time. Today many kids miss the important lessons a father or mother teaches them and many kids have strange beliefs of how they are supposed to be. Many boys have this belief they must be tough and able to be violent instead of being decent people. Drugs were not a big thing back then so there was way less psychotic behaviour or crime. There was some air pollution was in the cities but overall the world was way less polluted.
    These days cities are way more crowded and all the spare spaces are not full of housing. Money seems to always be short of what you really need so many families now have both parents working. Kids now come home from school to an empty home and mom brings high caloried fattening take out food as they don't have the time or energy to cook evening meals. Now at least 25% of kids are obese who do no real exercise all heading for an early death because they will never be healthy. Kids tend to be spoiled with expensive electronics and other things as compensation for not having parents around much supposedly as a replacement for the love and affection kids were missing out on. Young people take drugs like sweets not realising the damage they are doing to their health and mental state.
    I feel sorry for the young these days as it is a different world from 50 years ago and young people have much more struggles than years ago. I think country people overall seem to live more the way people should live with less stress and a more active life. Housing tends to be more affordable in the country and people seem to be more friendly and there tends to be way less crime. Country communities seem to work and socialise together whereas many city communities demand the government give them what they need. Many country people set up their own community facilities and community events and the fact they know each other tends to create security in a district that was lost years ago min cities who quite often do not even know the names of their neighbours.
    I believe we were much better off back then and likely the young people of the time likely they were the luckiest generation in history.

    Best answer: He also promised to balance the budget and the deficit is growing. He promised to deport the Syrian refugees. He called for a ban on Muslims entering the USA. Rather than "No vacations" and critical of Obama' golf, he seems to be keeping up his golf at multiple times of Obama rate. "As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."
    “I will ask, to appoint a special prosecutor. We have to investigate Hillary Clinton, and we have to investigate the investigation.”- problem is that is retribution against an opposition candidate, and he is not appointed dictator yet. “I’m under a routine [tax] audit and it'll be released, and as soon as the audit is finished it will be released."

    He's still looking for the government to take border land from the owners of it and put up a wall.

    Best answer: In all jobs you sell a bit of yourself in exchange for money, in some jobs you sell your muscles, in others you sell your mind, in others you sell your genitals, in others you sell your own mental health because of the amount of stress you are put through, etc. Some jobs are more risky than others, being a window cleaner in a high building carries more risks than selling your genitals for money. Slow minded people think selling your genitals is more wrong than selling other parts of your body because of religious reasons and imagined "self-worth".
