We've got the 2nd largest european economy after germany (we overtook france recently) and one of the highest employment rates in europe, so I'd be interested to hear what your definition of "strong" is.

Must be the Conservative Conspiracy media that's covered in the international news. I hear about how hard the UK has it because their presence in the EU causes all the poor eastern European people to flock to the UK to steal all the UK jobs, working for peanuts and taking all the money out of the country when they are done.

England must be super-strong. They were claiming that Scotland would collapse economically if they weren't in the EU, just 9 months ago when the Scottish freedom was considered. So Scotland is hanging by a thread, on the edge of collapse. Or at least, so says England.

But hey, you don't see any real differences between reservoirs and rivers - and you spout complete nonsense about Dallas pumping water out of the Trinity and into city reservoirs

So, what feeds Lewisville Lake? Does Dallas pull drinking water from Lewisville Lake? Where does the waste from Gainsvile go?

You don't stick to facts, and don't answer direct questions. So I assume more distraction and smoke and mirrors, and no answers or discussion.

In the neo-natal unit, the rules were immediate family only, or others with written permission of the duty nurse, and even then, only breastfeeding mothers are allowed outside hospital visiting hours. In the geriatric unit, the rule was "anyone any time", even relaxing the official hospital visiting hours.

The hospitals set rules, but the rules aren't consistent across departments or duty nurses, and that will open them up to lawsuits, unless they have a simple written policy.

When you are too unconscious to name the person who is authorized, and they are out (at the movies, working, whatever), and it's bad practice to keep all possible papers on you at all times, they would be unable to prove it when they got there.

So a person with a matching last name is presumed family.

I've seen no plan that is remotely practical that would allow pre-identification of those allowed, and even when someone does set the rules, they are unenforceable. Your mother has the right to be in your room if you aren't conscious and ordering her out. Even with an iron-clad living will, family has the right to be involved, just like valid wills are challenged all the time by family and others.

Do you know that the vast majority of those "sex scandals" was caused by homosexuals (and actually not priests but teachers in church funded schools)?

In the US, the scandals were almost exclusively ordained priests, not teachers or such. Also, the teachers i church funded schools are required to be members of the church. At least for the schools I know the details of. Thus they were all 100% church funded, ordained, certified, and all that. At least in the US, 100% of the scandal was the church's members abusing children, and the church refusing to expose and correct the behavior, but instead covering up and actually encouraging it.

civil unions is your civil right, I support it - having sex with Jesus is not! Please stop suppressing my right to religion.... everyone will benefit from that.

Jesus hung out with 12 guys. He preached "love" all the time. You honestly think that Hippie Jesus wasn't having sex with John? There's a reason neither married a woman. The wording of nuns, married to Jesus or God, is very similar to what John did, married to Jesus.

Nobody is having sex with Jesus, except John, and Mary in a 3-way. In heaven.

How in any way is anyone suppressing your right to religion?
