Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

It is annoying while in public places hearing conversations, supposedly private, that appear directed at you only to discover they are playing office on their little cell phones stuck in their ears. A nice slap would be satisfying but likely problematic. I'm with dad on this one, as if often the cas...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Wife regales me about the Walmart in front of store waiters who drop off the mrs. and then sit right there as you have to walk around them, oblivious to others who park legally. I've never witnessed a towing of an illegal hdqp person, ever. As to the toned babe B&W asserts wasn't hdqp, even her ...

Re: Other College Football Games

Just saw that note, what a tragedy to take a life so young. What goes on in one's head to do such a horrific thing? Sad.

Re: Politics

I read many good points/thoughts on the subject from everyone and I do mean it sincerely. Nat's points about curtailing terrorism are good. We can discuss immigration all day, it's difficult but we do allow, from my limited knowledge, more immigrants than most other countries don't we, already? I be...

Re: These are a few more of my favorite peeves

Agree w/ llama on the hdqp spaces although I attend no gyms to attest to his particular peeve. Mine is mostly everywhere else....watching potentially non hdqp (this is a fine line as I may qualify on a visual level) trotting into a store, restaurant, etc. out of a giant SUV where a hdqp person would...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

My only question is whether the alligator asked to play through or did the golfers ask to play through? A subtle but important difference. If the gator was on the green first (he) had the choice to putt out or eat the snake and then putt out. "A serious golf etiquette situation". Obviously...

Re: Politics

Lion was correct, there is no broad brush to paint an entire nation or people, period. Good and bad populate all, yet dunghole places are horrid, not because of the people generally, they do what they are taught but the poverty of wallet and mind lead to these hell hole nations. My food poisoning co...

Re: Politics

My youngest told me just a short while ago that he saw two "political analyst" types on the tube discussing whether this situation would have received less of a reaction if he had said "hell-hole" instead of "sh*t-hole". American politics defy parody. What he said was ...

Re: Politics

As long as the Norwegians are not terrorists and can do jobs left wanting here, bring'em on. Now the feecehole types....well, harrumph. What can they do, Fries with that? I would not want them to handle my fries unless someone watched them sanitize their hands before handling my food. I've already h...

Re: Politics

I'm like dad, standard deduction which will be a boon for us of an additional 12k deduction. We have 10 yrs on a 15 year refi but our interest is 2.65% so the interest isn't a major amount and decreasing monthly. We have also been paying it down knowing Mrs. will retire in six years of so. Then we s...
