About once a week I peruse my hubs to check on traffic, comments, and just generally see how things are going. One of my hubs, "What Are The Benefits of Eating Bananas," had the copyright symbol next to it. I...
Should combat roles be opened to women?
As is my habit, and out of boredom since everyone is still asleep, I decided to look through my list of articles just to check on their status'. One has a red skull next to it. I had to look at the legend to see what...
First, this is not my idea. It was presented by an author on a web-site that concentrates on economics.The proposal is this. Do not attempt to curtail gun ownership rights. Rather levy a federal tax on all fire-arms and...
This is not a compliant, but I've noticed that one of my most popular hubs had a drop in page views. It went from about 184,000 views to 172,000 views. I'm just wondering how this happened and what it means.
That the executive and half the legislative branch were won is just the beginning. We have to keep pressure on those reluctant members of the House of Representatives to work with the President and the...
Nearly a billion dollars was spent by these two alone. In an attempt to deny Barack Obama a second term, bankroll tea-party candidates, and gut environmental and wage legislation.I wonder how they feel about this...
Now that President Obama has won a second term I can breathe a bit better. But I've got to say I'm deeply disturbed by the rampant voter disenfranchisement that continues even as I write this.Pennsylvania, Ohio, and...
Please punctuate the following sentence.Woman without her man is nothing
This country does in fact have a serious deficit problem. But the reality is that the deficit was caused by two wars - unpaid for. It was caused by huge tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. It was cause...

Sorry if this has already been answered, but I'm curious. When viewing My Account page and checking the page view count am I seeing the actual count or sixty percent?
I have a number of hubs with the copyright symbol next to the title; this is in "my account" with the list of all published articles. However, when I open the article for more information on the...
It has taken me a couple of years and a lot of work, but I've finally come to a realization.I don't belong here. At least, my articles don't. Part of this realization comes of frustration and part of it comes from a now...
I wonder if HubPages would consider enabling the strike through HTML tag in the editor. There are times when conditions I've written about have changed. I don't really want to delete the text as much as let the reader...
Every so often information in my hubs changes. I don't want to delete the old sentence or paragraph, but put a line-through so the reader knows I'm not "pulling a fast one."Is it possible to re-enable this...
First, I've been using Chrome for the last six months and have had other problems with that browser. I assumed the problems I'm about to relate have something to do with that. Not true.When I attempt to place photos or...
The improvements to the editor have been beyond all expectations when I joined. But since you keep making it better, even in unexpected and un-thought of ways, I'd love to see the following.Please set it up so the link...
I've written an number of hubs about an art movement that is somewhat surrealism, but with current trends and topics. Only one of my art hubs is about the "older" surreal movement, though I will be writing...
There is so much disagreement these days over the meaning of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution that I have a humble proposal.Let each state adopt a religion and insist that the adopted religion be...
I have an information hub called "Stemming the Problem of Premature Ejaculation." Apparently someone decided that I need to change the title because of the word "ejaculation." What is this?!I know...
Silent Black HelicoptersA new rotor blade design, the tip shaped like a gull's wing, operates at such low noise levels (3 ~ 4 dB) that this nightmare vision could actually come true.
Friendly fire or assassination?
Just saw a video with sound-bite of Michael Steele in a tropical shirt complete with flower lei saying "this is no vacation."Huh?
I'm not attempting to swat a hornet's nest here. I just keep hearing the refrain "no government is good government" or words to that effect.According to the tea-party folks I've spoken to government is...
The Supreme Court recently voted 5:4 to grant corporations unlimited rights toward funding political activities. Should this sort of right be limited to living breathing citizens of the United States or should any...
At fifty will I see it in my life-time? Will my children?
I just found a new hubber who is an educator and has written three hubs on the subject of education from an educator's point of view. Doa has been here three days and already published three hubs on the subject.They are...
I'm really jealous of the likes of ryankett who can bang out hub after hub with high entertainment value.After just over two years I've finally published my 100th hub. Seemed to take forever too.
Thought this should have it's own thread.
To pick up where we left off.
According to a USA Today article (last paragraph in the link below) the U.S. Government paid for all of the Swine Flu vaccines. Although a clinic can charge to administer it, the vaccine is basically "free" as...
Just thought I'd start a conspiracy thread with no real conspiracy. Figure someone has to come here and start a "sky is falling" thing that we can all respond to.Should be fun.
I thought EVERYONE would want to know the different hybrid types. Was I wrong?http://hubpages.com/hub/Future-Car-Hybrid-TypesIt's getting traffic, but nowhere near what I thought it would. I know this is a bit of a...
Thought we might vote on it. I hope you exclude my own because a) I stole it and b) it's a cartoon anyway.
What's up with this?http://hubpages.com/hub/What-are-things … ve-your-IQI wrote it in response to a question and it has my usual level of detail. When I posted it the score was 48. Now it's 43. What gives?
I like the new tool placement, but the buttons/links are the same color as the background. I knew they had to be there so by watching my status bar while "mousing over" the areas to the right of Tools: I found...
My hubs are moving around all over the place, but the "1 Day" "Page View" hasn't changed since early this morning. Also, I was rockin-n-rollin on Google AdSense and now suddenly, after yesterday's...
Can I embed the table code e.g. in a hubpage?I have tried it and it looked fine in the insert box, but once I hit the "insert" button the borders and divisions disappeared. Leaving just plain text. Since...
