    I think it was David L who asked me what I didn't like about Bernie Sanders. I was just curious. You seemed to really not like him and I was just wondering why....

    Seems to me we're already there with oxen, dogs, chickens, horses, etc... Except when those animals are owned by the idle rich. (By world standards.)...

    drag the FBI into it, a retired agent I talked to in the '60s said he'd spent much of his career trying to track down guys who went from state to state writing bad checks. ... Must not be as...

    Not sure if your against, for, or adding to my comment. The lady in question pasted the physical tests. Full gear, oxygen tank, breathing, helmets, etc... and carried the needed weights through smoke required distances to pass. IIRC gear was...

    While the apparatchicks have made a grab for the assets, they were soon replaced by even shady characters (sometimes it was organized crime and just as often "self-made men" coming from nowhere) It is my understanding that in his youth...
  • Commented on A reminder
    Going along with one of the topics under discussion to me it seems you've put forward some very strongly held opinions as solid facts. Not everyone would agree. Even some who voted on the D side of the ballot....

    There are undoubtedly some women with the upper body strength to carry a casualty out of a burning building and down a ladder, but there won't be many. Oddly enough I personally know of one young lady who made the...

    Essentially nobody except orchestras go this far. Actually my all county band did this back in the late 60s / early 70s. Which led to some, ah, interesting results....

    Really? Interesting....

    As for beer - I'd have a beer with most people here. ... But Greg and SnU would both be near the top of the list of the ones I'd specifically seek out, I have a relative via marriage that...
  • Commented on A reminder
    I realize this is a common misconception in Europe that the US has shunned high speed rail due to costs. The real reason we've shunned it is due to property rights lawsuits. And even when you do deal with property...
  • Commented on A reminder
    The Republican Party have, AIUI, a more mature element that remember the 1970s oil shock, and OPEC behaviour, all too well - and who would deeply love practical fusion power, if only so as to tell OPEC members to go...

    a protest abstention and a vote for President John Ewards Hard for me to believe I once supported that turd for Senator....

    DT has been acting this way since I starting watching his antics in the 80s. This IS how he is....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I've dealt with this. My strong advice is to get a lawyer and an accountant and get all papers in order. Make sure that critical bills get paid (in the US, this include medical/care insurance and life insurance). It's highly...

    Some of us were also dealing with dementia. Spent much of the last few months moving my MIL to a senior facility as she became just too much to deal with in our home setup. Not physically. But the constant...

    Was the election of trump much more of a case of "anything but hilary" rather than "we love trump"? And where have you been the last year or so? It was this plus "we want change, any change" and HC...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I don't think there's an organized conspiracy. But I do think a lot of Alt right (call them whatever) are best positioned to step in when things get wonky. The problem is that while many think the Trump supporters have...

    I wonder why this divide even exists? http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-reasons-trumps-rise-that-no-one-talks-about/...

    I expect that within 5 years, self-driving tech will replace the 3.5 million truck drivers in the USA. Maybe. For long haul maybe maybe. But for deliveries and urban areas there is a LOT that AI still has issues...

    It has yet to happen as the conclusion has always been that eventually the tide will turn and the current majority party will find itself the minority and would want the filibuster to block stuff it really doesn't like....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I think you'll find that quite a lot of people were actually voting against the other major candidate when they voted for someone. This is true on both sides. Stats I heard last night on cable news. 90% of the...

    FYI - 'super-majority' is simply 50% plus 1 vote. Ah, no. The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of...

    The likes of Bernie Sanders sets off the red flags cos while he talks a good game, he will knife you in the back while claiming he is an ally. Where do you get this. He's the only candidate in...

    However, fears over personal safety are also a valid reason for cancelling, and I just don't know right now how I feel about visiting Texas next September. You're being way too paranoid. Just don't go into a lawyers downtown bar...

    Which reminds me, I wonder if he will want to "renegotiate" Treasury debt, or just stiff the holders of it. National debt in the US is a very messy affair. The President, via the Treasury, is much more of an...
  • Commented on The Day After
    With a president doing nothing at all, don't all bills become law after 10 days unless they are vetoed? Except for those passed less than 10 days before the end of a session. You have it backwards. If the President...

    In the electoral college. Please, we need to get organized in 2018. Especially we need the popular vote compact and some damn electoral reform. Our constitution makes this very unlikely. It is a tall order indeed to modify the constitution....
  • Commented on The Day After
    The only reason he's president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we'll continue to have presidents we didn't elect and didn't want. Sort of like the PM of Brittan? No...
  • Commented on The Day After
    I didn't say the voters were being rational. Basically many of them (and I run into many somewhat frequently) were willing to crash the bus if that's what it take to change the driver. Then think about what that means...
