Re: How Absurd can it gat?

I had a nice battery operated watch. The battery died and I took it back to the store to have a new battery installed. They told me that if they opened the back of the watch, it would not be waterproof anymore and could get damaged. I told them if they didn't open the back and put a new battery in i...

Re: Covid 19

"...that just goes to prove that these vaccinations do work." That is one theory, but it doesn't take into account the wearing of masks, social distancing, working from home, and all the other protocols that have been in place to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. Here in Wisconsin, one person with th...

Re: Marni AW 2021

I won't disagree with your assessment of men's fashion variety, because there surely isn't much variety. The other day, someone commented on how nice my shirt looked. I told them that it was almost 20 years old. Men's fashion doesn't change much. My point is that we need variety in men's fashion oth...

Re: Marni AW 2021

Actually, some of the items look very wearable, but I tend to agree that most of us would not go for the entire outfits as shown. Then again, most women would not wear these outfits either, but there are items that they would consider wearing. All in all, I enjoy checking out all the looks - perhaps...

Re: A Sincere Request of Help from Those Who Disagree with My Politics

"On "unemployment numbers": those are a fiction and have been for decades..." Truer words were never written. People who are unemployed and cannot find employment for so long that they simply quit looking are dropped from the unemployed list. If they quit looking for a job, they must not want one. T...

Re: Froze Over

The "pre-planned" part of your post is not the issue. Many people cancel vacations or other plans when an emergency occurs. As a US Senator, he should have been in contact with people at the Federal level to get help or aid as soon as possible. Sheesh! Why are people elected into office if they are ...

Re: A Sincere Request of Help from Those Who Disagree with My Politics

Unfortunately - just keeping up with inflation doesn't keep your buy power in line with inflation. Income tax here in the USA is progressive in that higher income pays a higher rate. I have seen people get a small pay raise and move into a higher tax bracket and end up with less take home pay. (No, ...

Re: A Sincere Request of Help from Those Who Disagree with My Politics

I was at a convenience store and made a purchase a little less than 5 dollars and handed the clerk a 20 dollar bill to pay for it. He handed me 4 dollars and 95 cents back in change (which happened to be how much my purchase was.) I asked him to recount the change. He came up with exactly 4 dollars ...

Re: My turn to do a double take

That very thing (medication for an illness) destroyed all the bacteria in my sister-in-law's digestive track. They were reaching the point where they their last option was a fecal transplant and when so far as to test her daughter to see if it would be compatible with SIL's system. Fortunately, she ...

Re: Army rules for ponytails and nail color

The US Army relaxed the regulations on hair back in the early 70's. "As long as your hair fits under your hat, it will be allowed!" This regulation was geared more for those of African decent because the "Afro" was very popular back then, and there were many black soldiers who were affected by this ...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

I have had to do my civic duty and sit as a jurist. One of the very first things that the court wanted to know was: "Do any of you know the defendant, prosecutor, or key witnesses?" "Do you have any preconceived beliefs as to the guilt or not of the defendant?" It seems to me that about 99% of the S...

Re: For those who were adults during 1968

Back in 1968, I was 18 and in college. To pay tuition, I was working 20-30 hours a week at 1.35 per hour as a short order cook to cover tuition and personal needs. My car was a 1960 Ford Falcon that sipped gas. Yes,$1.00 of gas equaled about 1/4 of a tank of gas. Even from empty to full it did not t...

Re: FBI investigating Antifa, BLM and The Democrat Party

Uncle Al, Voter fraud is wide spread, but most people can't see it. It starts with gerrymandering so that one party or the other gets people elected because district boundaries have been manipulated to their advantage. I watched the video, but all I heard were accusations. Recounts - both machine - ...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

I viewed the video several times. I observed that the doors were barricaded. She was trying to enter through the broken window. The officer stepped up and shot her (the intruder). The question that I have: Did she have authority to enter? If a door is barricaded - should anyone try to forcibly try a...
