• History channel needs to change it’s name to “just stupid stuff” channel. Precious little history.

  • Thanks for the info. Wish they still made paint this way, sure does beat Dutch Boy or Sherwin Williams in the longevity department.
    But that would only deplete more natural resources leaving states to fight over them for big business.

  • Good morning Ruth. You had mentioned earlier in the week that you would have these pictures today. I’ve never seen them and didn’t want to miss this. Just enchanting.
    I’m puzzled by the paint. What sort of materials were used to make it last so long. And thank you.

  • “The only way workers can be paid more is if prices of goods and services are increased significantly.”

    No. Employers could stop being so goddamn greedy. You don’t think the walmart heirs could cut loose a few extra bucks for their employees. That way my tax money wouldn’t have to subsidize them and maybe I could afford some of these cheap groceries you speak of, because right now about all I can afford is beans and ‘taters. Obviously you’ve never tried living on a fixed income. Where the hell do you shop. Nothing is cheap.

    This says it better than I could.

    Cruz to a T, and funny a as hell.
    Your family reunions must be quite an experience.

  • I was one of those. I was 58, no one wants to hire a 58 year old. Then I was diagnosed with cancer and got on disability along with the fact that my body was wrecked from a lifetime of physical labor.

    It’s pretty goddamn sad when one feels “lucky” to get cancer and qualify for disability just to live. If this sounds harsh, I make no apologies, I’ve been poor, didn’t much care for it. I prefer death to povery at my age.

  • Well, for one thing, in spite of the statistics a whole helluva lot of people are unemployed but not counted as such. And most service jobs don’t pay worth a hoot in hell.
    Some GOP led states want to tie benefits with the ability to pass a drug test. So states have money for drug tests that the majority will pass but don’t want to feed hungry kids.
    Keep pushin’ rich folks. When you have enough hungry people, maybe we’ll have that revolution we’ve been needing for a long time.
    Peter, I asked at Barnes and Noble about your book and they didn’t have it. I’ve read in Mother Jones that employees of Amazon go on a dead run to fill orders, so I prefer not to do business with another WalMart.

    Cruz crawled out of the clown car at Crazytown Summit last weekend in Iowa. Would love to hear your description of him.

    You’re really pretty damn funny. Your comment @94 made me laugh out loud, first time all week.

    Update: local news reported that JustIN is JustOut. Maybe raising hell does help sometimes.

    That was a train wreck. Someone blamed it on a glitch with the teleprompter, which I believe she criticized Obama for relying on so much.
    The problem imho is that both tell so many lies it’s hard to remember tham all and keep tham all straight.

    I’ll give that shot. If I can’t figure it out I’ll just make a copy the old fashioned way – paper. Thanks for your help.
    My representatives do the standard boilerplate reply as well. I’ve received 2 or 3 that had absolutely nothing to do with the issue I’d originally written about.
    That always makes me a proud, happy American.

    Yes, they were sent through their respective websites. At the risk of sounding like a moron how does this happen and why? Do they just have correspondence from people like say “green warrior” and “oldhippiejan” just sent to some spam hell never to be read. I don’t take well to being ignored and it really pisses me off. That just makes me more determined than ever. I’m retired and have lots of time to piss off people.

    In view of Pence’s other acts of idiocy, I’d say he’s a shoe-in for the Governor Idiocy Hall of Fame.

    Yes, an official lawfully elected by the citizens of Indiana, mostly because her predecessor was such a crook, funneling school voucher money to a good friend, who happened to run a shitty school.
    I take two newspapers so don’t need to watch tv enter into a blind rage. Also announced Monday are plans to legalize canned hunting in Indiana. The article stated that a handful of these “businesses” already exist. How can that be? Aren’t businesses supposed to be registered, licensed, and legal? I wrote my Rep. Curt Nisly about this. I received no answer. So I went back into my sent archives to re-send it and the letter was gone. How can that happen? Everything else I’ve sent is there. If any computer whiz can answer this question, I’d be most appreciative. I also wrote to the DNR and received no reply, that letter was gone as well. Yet I received confirmation notices on both.

    As a fellow Hoosier thanks for writing this. I’ve been irate as hell since I first heard about this Monday. MY tax dollars paying for a Pence propaganda machine. It’s been called news agency, news release, news resource. He needs to pick one and stick with it or preferrably kill it.
    Have you seen the commercial running on local tv of an obviously very ill newborn tethered to wires and monitors with the voiceover of a young woman saying she couldn’t afford prenatal care? Way to promote Indiana. The ad then mentions a website where pregnant women may be able to get help. If memory serves me right the income cap for school vouchers is $80,000. I’d be willing to bet my house that the income cap for prenatal care is a helluva lot less. We really have a shitty state, msmolly.

    A heartbreaking tragedy that seem to be happening all too often.
    I’m starting to think every damn police department in the country is corrupt and made up of thugs.

    Always have popcorn, love it, just not air popped or microwaved.
    Glad I tuned in this morning, this subject has become quite interesting to me now and will be paying attention. Learned quite a bit, thanks to all.

    I started wearing glasses when I was 8. My Mom had cut my toenails til then. After years of glasses and contacts I had Lasik surgery in my 40′s. The first time I cut my toenails without any type of visual aid was just the greatest thing.

    The thought of banksters stabbing each other in the heart via the back gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
    Can’t see that Greece would be worse off without the pestilence of banksters, although my reasoning could be tainted from my hatred for them.

    Wait until you can cut your toenails without the aid of glasses or contacts. That is a great feeling.
