  1. RIP Barbara Bush

    I had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Bush in San Antonio, TX where she was the keynote speaker at a professional conference. Sharp-witted, insightful and very engaging. Even as a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, I can honestly say she is one of the more interesting people I've met in my life. I'll always remember her saying, "George W. was never the sharpest tool in the shed. The smartest member of the family is not involved in politics."
  2. In Today's Racist GOP News...

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, of the infamous voter fraud panel formed by Trump & Pence, didn't have anything to do and was disbanded... yeah, that asshat Kris Kobach. Found in contempt of court for failing to register 18,000 by court order. http://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/383828-kobach-held-in-contempt-in-voter-registration-case --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Senate voted on Wednesday to overturn an Obama-era rule that restricted automobile lenders from discriminating against minorities by charging them higher fees for car loans, in the latest attempt by Republican lawmakers to roll back financial regulations. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/18/us/politics/senate-auto-lending-discrimination.html --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Breeding concept" Need I say more?
  3. The Official Robert Mueller is comin! Thread

    The circle is close to being complete. The Russia connection, Stormy Daniels being paid by a lawyer.... the lawyer happens to be Trump's.... oh, he's been handling money and working for the campaign? Maybe there's a connection between Trump's lawyer and Russia, but Stormy made it all come to light... I'm telling you, Cohen and his poo might bring Trump down faster than the Russia investigation.
  4. i bought a bike. where should i go

    It's a little early and cool to hit the northern route, so here's the 10-day route I took from San Diego to Greensboro when I moved in 1992: Yuma, Old Tucson, up 77 & 87 thru Tonto and Coconino National Forests to Winslow. Petrified Forest National Park, up 491 to Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. 160 & 84 down to Santa Fe. Down to 40, gotta stop in Tucumcari and then to the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo. Down to Wichita Falls. Jump on 75 north to Muskogee and east to Ozark National Forest. After that it's up to you and the weather. Wanna head north to St. Louis and east to Louisville or go south into Memphis then to Nashville? I love St. Louis and think Nashville is really overrated, but that's me.
  5. There are many similarities here... Trump is the president in name only; he's unprofessional, went to a crappy business school, doesn't have any clients or friends, etc. in reality he probably works more as a wannabe tough guy....
  6. Sexy Tyme (post your (m/f) here if you can)

    Jerrika Hinton (formerly of "Grey's Anatomy" and currently in HBO's "Here and Now").
  7. RIP: Harry Anderson, Night Court

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/16/us/harry-anderson-death/index.html Only 65. Comic genius and a truly good guy. Passed in his home in Asheville. Fwiw, Night Court was fugging hilarious in its time and Markie Post was hot.
  8. Why we don’t need to arm teachers

    I meant what I wrote. You want to infer anything more into that statement, that's on you.
  9. Why we don’t need to arm teachers

    Give it a rest, would ya? Geez, one could sit here all day and come up with, "Okay, so now they do this......, what're you gonna do now?" There are no absolutes and trying to paint the worst-case scenario trying to elicit a response you want is childish.
  10. Going to WAR?

    And this was the most worrisome aspect when I made a couple tours in the regions between 1987-1991. The Iranians had US trained pilots flying F-14s we sold them back in the Shah's day and when the Ayatollah took over, we began aiding and abetting Saddam. So, here we were, right between 2 countries who would never have had the balls or equipment to fight each other suddenly shooting across the Persian Gulf thanks to good ol' American-made bravado. And wen we left Iraq in 1991, probably 3 months too soon, we all knew we were coming back to finish the job. It was a just a matter of when. "Stormin' Norman" Schwarzkopf wanted to go all the way to Baghdad, but was stopped short by President Bush, not unlike Patton was stopped by Eisenhower. We all knew it was just a matter of time before we returned.
  11. Why we don’t need to arm teachers

    I said that as the number of schools employing the use of SROs increases, so does the frequency of school shootings. You can infer whatever your heart desires from those facts. I am of the opinion that having an SRO or other armed security personnel in a school has very little, if any deterrent effect.
  12. Why we don’t need to arm teachers

    Columbine had an SRO who engaged the shooter and was unsuccessful. At that time about 10% of all schools in this country had SROs. Since then, the number has tripled, yet the incidences of school shootings are increasing.
  13. What happened in South Carolina?

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/16/us/south-carolina-prison-inmates-killed/index.html Seven inmates were killed and 17 others were injured overnight at a South Carolina prison -- the fourth deadly incident at the facility in the past year. No officers were injured in the latest fracas at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, said Jeffrey Taillon, spokesman for the South Carolina Department of Corrections. The incident started at 7:15 p.m. ET Sunday and involved "multiple inmate altercations in three housing units," Taillon said. The facility was secured at 2:55 a.m. ET Monday. No other details were given about what led to the fights. Lee Correctional Institution, a maximum-security prison for men, has been the site of several other violent and deadly outbreaks this past year, CNN affiliate WACH reported. Last month, inmates reportedly overpowered an officer for more than an hour and took control of one side of a housing unit. In February, inmate Robert Odell Brown was killed by another inmate at Lee Correctional Institution. Last November, another dispute between two prisoners led to the stabbing death of inmate Larry Rainey. And last July, inmate Christian D. Ray died from injuries suffered during a fight.
  14. RIP: Lee Ermey, Drill Sergeant Full Metal Jacket

    The FMJ drill instructor portrayed in this movie was almost the guy I had in boot camp.... decades before this movie came out. I do remember laying in my bunk the first night of boot and wondering just what the fug had I gotten myself into. And 20 years after that I laughed when I remember thinking this E-6 was the most powerful person in my universe at the time; and when I retired knowing I had out-promoted him by 3 paygrades.
  15. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/fbi-raids-michael-cohen-office-trump-personal-lawyer-today-2018-04-09/ Cohen's attorney, Stephen Ryan, released a statement confirming the search, saying, "Today the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients. I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller." According to a knowledgeable official, the information used in Monday's raid originated with the special counsel but is a separate inquiry, CBS News' Andres Triay reports. The Times reported that federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after the special counsel in the Russia probe, Robert Mueller, sent a referral. The Times said that the search "does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller's investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave" to New York prosecutors.
