Re: Politics

I've noticed the federal govt is still collecting taxes from me - I don't see why they can't have a provision that they will operate "as is" during a budget stalemate and just freeze any new capital spending, new hires, non-essential travel. They should continue to employ pay active employ...

On a business trip and started with company travel agency losing all my profile info messing up my flight reservations and TSA pre-check, took an artic shower this morning - not my preference by any means - and arrived to find our plant here had started trial before my arrival (not a bad thing) but ...

Re: Epilogue to the 2018 Penn State Season

Pretty clear Polk wasn't going to play next year. Agree with people who said if JJ wanted to be the primary guy he should have caught more balls. With the emergence of Hamler and Freiemuth and Dotson and Shorter expected to see more snaps and Brown / Slade / QB taking runs how many targets was he go...

Re: Epilogue to the 2018 Penn State Season

Based on what I am seeing of players leaving early only Sanders is projecting in top 3 rounds - that's why I was puzzled why all these guys were jumping. I'm certainly all for these guys doing what is best for them and their families - everyone else in the college football machine (coaches, Universi...

Re: Politics

Perhaps I am not articulating properly but what I am saying is the same Ds opposing DT's crackdown on illegal immigration were spouting the same rhetoric 10 years ago - they have shifted their positions with the political winds and due their pathological opposition to everything DT does. There have ...

Re: Politics

Well I guess he's just trying to fit in with the mainstream politicians like the former POTUSes and Chucky, Hillary, Biden, Boxer, Feinstein - all wall opponents of whom there is ample recent video of them calling for increased border security including physical barriers , increased patrols and a cr...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I recall when the Eagles signed Michael Vick after he was releasead from prison. There was an OpEd in, I think, the Philly inquirier that talked about all the ex-cons in Philly who were locked up for non-violent offenses and could not get a job. The Eagles talked about how everyone deserves a 2nd c...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

She's probably not going to land a top management position but as far as getting a job - most non - skilled positions right now just require you be 98.6 degrees and be able to show up on a daily basis. I can guarantee you certain skilled positions like an electrician with PLC programming skills coul...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

It's a six part (one hour each) documentary and I have to say - every bit as jarring and WTF as Sandusky, Nassar, Cosby, Weinstein scandals. When it broke about 15 years ago I didn't follow it closely and more or less thought it was him basically taking advantage of underage girls at parties / shows...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Something similar happened less than 5 miles from my house - a teen looking to make his mark with a gang was sent out to kill a rival gang member - he goes to the house knocks on the door and when the kid answers he shoots him dead. Aside from the obvious problem - he was at the wrong house. Basical...
