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.

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 ...

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...

Re: 2017 Team Thread

Every mock draft board I've seen has the Giants taking an OT with that pick, which I think makes a lot of sense. Btw, I was looking online when eating lunch and cbssportsline has Barkley to the Colts. Colts are fine. 49ers are fine. Giants are awesome. Please no Browns. Agreed, no browns, no way. I...

They devoted half their front page to the Golden Globe awards. If a bunch of vacuous Hollywood celebrities engaging in an orgy of self-...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Your family has my sincere sympathies, Carl. Hang in there, brother. I randomly picked a post to thank everyone for the condolences expressed about losing my M I L. As noted previously, it was a blessing that she passed peacefully once hospice arrived on the scene and her pain was adequately contro...
