Re: Evangelicals Realize Trump Played Them At The National Prayer Breakfast

And I never thought I'd be saddened by the thought that Arnold Schwarzenegger is not president.

Re: WI highways

And when we end up with highway maintenance funded by toll roads we will have a permanent memorial to the greatness of Scott Walker.

Re: Bob Dylan Wins Nobel Prize in Literature

Why? Not something he applied for, it was just conferred upon him. Does that require he then comply with their schedule? I don't think so.

Re: How long will he last?

Geez there is no point in providing facts to the climate change denialists. It's a religion. You don't need no stinkin' facts because you have belief. I actually expected Trump to get bored and drop out during the campaign. As he didn't do so, I'm pretty sure he'll stay in office for his entire four...

Re: Blinds Open or Closed?

I've been phasing out the blinds for years, since it appears there is no one else in my family able to figure out how to operate them (all horizontal.) They don't open and close them - they pull them up, leave them cantilevered weakening the whole structure, break the strings. I think one room still...

Re: Blinds Open or Closed?

Closed day and night. And there isn't much foot or vehicle traffic here. Some of the neighbors did complain about the street lights shining too brightly into their windows at night though.

Re: music update

Wow. What classism! Could have sung opera? Opera is the musical version of the day time soaps, sound and fury signifying nothing. And most of all, static. Dynamic flowing art has value, including being plugged into the time and place in which it is created. Most statues have only historical value.

Re: "He was like an octopus..."

What is true is that many men who are not sexual predators (or at least claim not to be) are either completely clueless or oddly defensive about men who are. I've always found it incredible that they claim to have never witnessed such behavior and can explain in detail how it never could have happen...

Re: The Kenneth Bone Discussion and Celebration Thread

However if you're going to talk about 'doddering' and 'old' you should take into consideration that average life expectancy for a man in the US is 76 and a bit which gives Trump only about 6 more years, and for a woman 81 which gives Hillary about twice as much remaining time. Theoretically of course.

No problem at all with kosher meals or any accommodation that does not involve requesting customers be inconvenienced by racial/gender/cultural/religious bigotry.

Re: Seriously, they must be joking

Wow joking. Way to misdirect and redefine every point.
I do however agree with you completely on the original post regarding the altered seating. The fact that it was even suggested is wrong.

Re: Police involved shootings

It's pretty much a given with racists that, when called out on that racism, they will complain that someone is using the "race card"
That satisfies them and gives everyone else a clear picture of who they are dealing with

Re: Soglin's Cynical Politics

So you're saying it is the equivalent of saying I spend thousands of dollars on shampoo and mortgage payments - thereby implying that my shampoo expenditure might be significantly higher than the $15 a year I actually spend on it? :crazy: And sort of dishonest

Re: Guaranteed basic income

But that is the future - few jobs, lots of people without jobs or income. The future of work is not promising between automation and the fact that there is always someplace cheaper businesses can move jobs. Either we go to a universal basic income or we find a way to lock up most of the population a...
