Trump Reneging On Charity Promise

Oct 15, 2018 - 3:44 PM - by Ahso!
Donald Trump said he would donate one million dollars to a charity of her choice if Elizabeth Warren would take a DNA test proving she had Native American lineage.

She did, she does, and now he doesn't want to pay up claiming he never said it.

Does Trump's NAFTA Correct the Damage Clinton Did to Workers?

Oct 14, 2018 - 10:51 PM - by Ahso!
Robert Sheer of Sheer Intelligence interviews Lori Wallach on the changes made by the Trump NAFTA negotiations. I found it informative.
"Championed by Ronald Reagan and ultimately enacted by Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the pact has hollowed out the manufacturing industry, leaving millions of Americans destitute and resentful. Enter Trump, who campaigned across the Upper Midwest on the message that NAFTA was “the worst trade deal in the history of

The Kathryn Spirit

The godforsaken idiocy off Beauharnois is finally disposed of, after nearly a decade of self-inflicted nonsense preventing its rapid dismantling.

The Kathryn Spirit was beached there for dismantling by a local company back in 2011. They were prevented from proceeding by local protest. The length of time taken by that process allowed the ship's structural... [Read More]

Things that confuse me

This Civil Partnership thing. For those not watching, the UK has legalized different-sex civil partnerships. One male and one female, both having reached the age of consent, may now enter into a civil partnership.

What no news site has yet said is whether they can do this if either partner is already married. It's illegal to enter a second marriage while one is still current, it's called bigamy. I've no idea what will stop someone trying a civil partnership in that... [Read More]

It started way back in the 70's with self-serve gasoline pumps.

A few days ago went to pick up my wife at the airport. I left way early and on the way stopped at a Walmart to pick up some fried chicken pieces to take and eat at the airport.

I had to scan bag and enter my money into a machine. I dunno, I was used to a checker to do that for me.

It was a beautiful day. I was sitting outside on the patio enjoying a quiet cup of coffee when a mockingbird started up in a tree on one side of the yard. It was annoying. Still, I tried to enjoy my coffee. Then another mockingbird started up on the other side. They didn't take turns, they tried to drown each other out. It was very very annoying.

I was about the give up and go inside, when there was sudden blissful silence. It wasn't just the mockingbirds who fell silent,... [Read More]

Brett Kavanaugh

Sep 28, 2018 - 3:16 PM - by Ahso!
Has anyone here been following the events regarding the US Supreme Court hearings?

After watching both Ford and Kavanaugh, I find it difficult to imagine Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. Kavanaugh's behavior strikes me as that of a guilty person, and also that of an alcoholic.

Also, the antics of the Republicans on the committee is distressing. The Democrats, otoh, have impressed me. The females on the committee were especially impressive - their line of questioning and... [Read More]

It seems that Bruv passed away in his sleep, last night.

I have no more information than that, at the moment.

Do I spend time or does time spend me?

Mickiel's Avatar
What a question that I ask myself now , I wouldn't have even asked this 30 years ago. I ask now because of wisdom and because the bag is full of foolishness. Time is a serious teacher and it gets between our ears and molds our minds like nothing else.

How did you spend your time today, or did time spend you? Did you allow yourself to be manipulated and swept through the day?

A thread of whining and self pity

Sep 06, 2018 - 7:05 PM - by Clodhopper
Apologies first to Ahso for hijacking his thread and to 4part for hijacking his undoubtedly very difficult admission of Bipolar. My post was a totally inappropriate reaction to that post, induced by a strong and honest emotional sympathetic reaction to his admission but nonetheless totally inappropriate.


I knew a bipolar person years ago so I know where 4 part goes, to some extent. I couldn't stop her suicide attempt but no-one could so I... [Read More]

Chaotic start - to supreme court hearing

OK, it is obvious that the Democratic Party is suffering some kind of seizure over the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice. The fear is this particular nominee has shown a tendency to respect the text of the Constitution. Bad news for those who are used to using the courts to legislate when they don't have the popular vote.

It is natural that cats would disappear in a rural area next to a highway.
