  1. Antifa is the moral equivalent of nazis

    At least Obama can read.
  2. Antifa is the moral equivalent of nazis

    Wait, you assume that I am a violent person who preaches non-violence first, then toss in the self-defense disclaimer? Do you make that same assumption about everyone who doesn't agree with you?
  3. Antifa is the moral equivalent of nazis

    Gee, wonder who made violence "cool and trendy?" Maybe the racist, bigoted, white supremacist, lying sack of sh!t president who called out and had black people removed from his campaign rallies, who told the world the police should rough up people, the guy who made sure we all knew that neo-Nazis were some very fine people, the guy who is itching to go to nuclear war just to distract everyone from the Russia thing, the guy who has marginalized everyone except WASP men. And if I respond to a violent or physical act against me with violence and physicality, sure, you can call me a hypocrite all day if you like. I doubt I'll lose sleep over it.

    Well done.
  5. 25 Best Places To Retire

    It takes planning, work and time- something a lot of retirees simply don't want to mess with. Started while we vacationed and met with an ex-pat real estate agent who showed us around. Settled into the idea of buying and now make more frequent trips to make the place our own. We've had a few things shipped, but it can be costly, so we pick up a few things here and there. But it's a very simple life, no need for a lot of "stuff." Now we're downsizing here, cleaning out the attic, holding a garage sale every few months and getting rid of more "stuff." The plan is for me to fully retire at 66 and make the last push to unload just about all of the "stuff" we no longer need. We'll sell one of our vehicles until the wife decides when she is ready to retire. Put the house on the market and move into an apartment for the short period until we tie up loose ends and get on a plane. I'm guessing by the time we make the final move, it will have taken about 5 years.
  6. The Official Robert Mueller is comin! Thread

    One other sh!tbag in Trump's back pocket I'd be happy to see go to jail- Roger Stone
  7. Rocket Man (Not Elton John)

    President Trump called on the United Nations to further isolate the North Korean regime by imposing more sanctions, and he threatened to "totally destroy" the country. He also, once again, referred to Kim Jong Un as "rocket man," adding that the leader is on a suicide mission with his nuclear program.
  8. US government wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman

    Judge does not need evidence approve wiretap for anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government while in this country, if I'm not mistaken. But I'll defer to heel31 and Saha, since they are the go-to guys when it comes to what's legal and what's not.....
  9. 25 Best Places To Retire

    Sorry... I would highly recommend Mexico, Honduras, Ecuador, Columbia or, if you have a pretty decent pension, Uruguay. The US dollar goes a very long way in most places in South America.
  10. 1980's

    I spent the majority of the 80's operationally deployed and, looking back, I'm very glad that happened. Unless you were a prepubescent teen, the music scene was atrocious in the 80's; the economy was in the toilet until 1983; the Iran-Iraq War started in 1987; I lost a couple guys I knew when the USS Stark got hit by an Exocet missile; I was onboard a helicopter that crashed; I was involved in the investigation of the 16" gun turret which exploded on the USS Iowa, killing 47 sailors. I also got divorced twice during the 80's.... mostly because I was never home. Of the few positive things... a few good movies came out, I got to go to the Naval War College at then end of the decade and I qualified for the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii twice, but couldn't compete in either due to deployments.
  11. Are there any good cops out there?

    So, while there is no statute of limitations on stupidity and ignorance, the second post was 6 years ago.... and somebody just now said something? Secondly, was he fired Tuesday or Wednesday?
  12. In my opinion, one can be easily confused or even get lost in what's going on. Which is the real issue here? Is the issue that CK cannot get a deal to play football or is the issue to what extent he follows thru on his activism? Seems like the majority of posts here are focusing on one over the other instead of seeing them as a tandem. But let's be real... If CK was not an NFL player and was just another 8-5 middle class guy out there grinding away at his job, would he be getting the press he does while working in the community? I highly doubt it. Therefore, for CK to keep his community efforts in the spotlight and try to raise money and awareness, he needs to land an NFL gig to keep his name relevant. But, if he's not getting the NFL gig because of his activism, the owners have every right in the world to decide how they spend their money and on whom. If they don't want the attention or distraction, how do you fault them? The NFL is not a democracy. It is a multi-billion dollar conglomerate operated by 32 incredibly wealthy, white, powerful, conservative who are concerned with one thing- the bottom line.
  13. Equifax data breach

    I'm not advocating for "disposal of the company." But I do believe they should be held both legally and financially responsible for any consumer issues that arise as a result of the hack.
  14. Equifax data breach

    Yeah, not so much. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/equifax-had-patch-months-before-hack-and-didn’t-install-it/ar-AArUSXs SAN FRANCISCO — Cybersecurity professionals who track down bugs discovered, created a fix for, and told the industry about the vulnerability that allowed attackers into the Equifax network two months before the company was hit by hackers. "The Equifax data compromise was due to (Equifax') failure to install the security updates provided in a timely manner," The Apache Foundation, which oversees the widely-used open source software, said in a statement Thursday. I guess if failing to do your job is a mistake, then I see your point. But there's more to it.... If you, Mr. Consumer, go into a place of business and decide to open a credit account, you then voluntarily, of your own choice, give information to the credit bureaus for the purposes of credit monitoring. However, Equifax collects your data without your express permission and uses it as it sees fit, again without your permission. Their sole mission and purpose is to collect and store personal and financial information on people. And if that company is unable or fails to maintain a level of security over the information they take from you, then they should be held both legally and financially responsible for any issues stemming from the breach.
