    You ain't going to believe this one

    PRETTY sure I have heard of at LEAST TWO cases where a rape occurred when this situation arose. That some criminal identified as a woman and went on to raping women in a female prison. I'm guessing that "identiying" was a little on the superficial side.

    When The Left Cannot Control The Narrative

    The other day some TV show said something about shaking your booty - and wife and I - with the kids in the room - started singing "Shake, Shake, Shake ...Shake, Shake, Shake - shake your booty - shake your BOOO-ty". Youngest said you guys just made that up, that's not a real song. "And we BOTH...

    Your terms are acceptable, Neil.

    Most of the time, I concur. I tend to lose interest in a performer when it's hard to see where the politics end the music begins. I don't care to be lectured or admonished while I listen to music or watch TV. I guess it's like family - if their social and political views are injected into every...

    When The Left Cannot Control The Narrative

    I remember years ago, to "disrespect" someone who was CLEARLY constantly busting your chops, ridiculing and threatening you - was considered gross manners to the person being "disrespected". And here I was, thinking it meant to withhold or otherwise refuse to give respect to someone who deserved...

    Your terms are acceptable, Neil.

    He could have just asked them to remove him without giving a reason. Just that. No political reasons. No grandstanding. No soapbox. They would have done that. He may have known they would do just that. It's still a playground stunt equivalent to "I won't play with you if you're friends with HER".

    McConnell Could Stop Biden From Replacing Justice Stephen Breyer Due To ‘Little-Noticed Backroom Deal’: Report

    When I was growing up, I was always the smartest kid in school. Over time, that changed. By the time I got to high school there were a lot. By the time I got to college it was an AWFUL lot. I eventually learned that when you surround yourself with smarter people you can learn a lot more, and...

    Your terms are acceptable, Neil.

    You’re not wrong, at least as far as Rogan is concerned. I barely know who he is. I’ve NEVER liked Neil Young. My friends in the 70s called him “the man without a voice”. First song of his I ever heard was “After the Gold Rush” and I thought “is this Monty Python?”. It was one of the most awful...

    Your terms are acceptable, Neil.

    And that’s it. It makes no difference if he’s some kind of legend or just has an annoying voice. I’m sure Dylan generates less traffic than just about ANYONE on the charts NOW. Neil just has an inflated ego. His time was over even 30 years ago when he was still trying to make the charts. I’m...

    Well THAT explains it. I wondered why one of my pre-selects suddenly changed.

    McConnell Could Stop Biden From Replacing Justice Stephen Breyer Due To ‘Little-Noticed Backroom Deal’: Report

    From experience, the only people I have encountered that seriously DON'T KNOW when they are in way over their head - are people who are profoundly stupid. It generally takes catastrophe for them to come anywhere NEAR that realization, and when they get the boot - they blame others for it...

    McConnell Could Stop Biden From Replacing Justice Stephen Breyer Due To ‘Little-Noticed Backroom Deal’: Report

    I just read on RealClearPolitics something ELSE that might pose a problem - In a 50-50 split in the Senate - is it legal - constitutional - for the VP to cast a deciding vote for SCOTUS? I don't thinik it will come to that - Republicans have been MUCH MORE accommodating to Democrat nominees...

    Government Expands List of Unvaccinated, Now Tracking Both Medical and Religious Exemptions

    Someone riddle me this - They come up with a vaccine - and it comes in two doses - and then you need a booster - and another - and presumably another on its way. AND IT HASN'T BEEN A YEAR SINCE THE FIRST SHOT - and you can still catch it anyway, and many have. Say all you want about vaccines...

    Folks, you cannot make this stuff up

    In the 50's and 60's? Not a chance.

    McConnell Could Stop Biden From Replacing Justice Stephen Breyer Due To ‘Little-Noticed Backroom Deal’: Report

    Not sure where I heard this, but it's a common enough sentiment - how does it FEEL to know you were picked as a running mate or a nominee to SCOTUS - NOT so much on your creds - but on your race - or gender - or nationality - - ? I suppose it is true of a lot of people who benefit from...

    Folks, you cannot make this stuff up

    I try to buy American. Some things, it's just hard to tell how much of it is AMERICAN, and how much is only partly American. I think I read a meme not long ago saying how much the average consumer could help reduce the trade deficit with China if everyone bought just X many products valued at x...
