Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

To add to the previous posts, my view is "what did we know when?" in order to know if only the vulnerable should have been quarantined vs the masses. Otherwise, lots of potential for 20-20 hindsight.

Re: A good analysis of the rioting

WRT the LA riots of 1992, which caused $1.42 billion in today's dollars: I'm guessing WRT in this context is the first one listed below? And LA is Los Angeles, not Lower Alabama? ;D Acronym Definition WRT With Regard To WRT With Respect To WRT Wrought WRT World Rally Team WRT With Reference To WRT ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I would like to ask any mask wearers who wear the masks around with their nose exposed -- what's the point of that? I see it all the time in stores. If you're going to bother with a mask cover your nose too! . Maybe you can have some of these printed and pass them out to the exposed nosers. ;) . IM...

Re: Moving personal files to the cloud

iCloud. For some crazy reason I trust Apple more than Google. 😬 I’ve tried (limited success) to rid myself of all things Google. Dropbox would be my second choice.

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

I just went through a Zoom meeting for marching band last night. The kids are still prohibited from practicing, even though we can easily be social distanced, and for much of the practicing can be masked. Football? Half Time? Competitions? All in limbo, likely not to happen. Yet protests and the up...

Re: Break up the USA

Is this being discussed in seriousness? If so, where do you see the geographical splits occurring? Would each nation have to be gerrymandered so that all its land would be contiguous? In a husband / wife split which decides which nation the kids go to? What if there is a third nation - the neutrals...

Re: Concrete Actions to Address Systemic Racism

And have you heard my theory about redheads and pain killers? ... My granddaughter is a redhead. She can eat horseradish by the spoonful, never blink, never have eyes water, never have face turn red, and never get the few seconds of "my head feels like it is exploding" rush. Go figure. What is your...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

i don't think doodle is arguing in bad faith or trolling. he is arguing from emotions and feeling, he has said several time that he often agrees regarding Trumps actual policy's, the thing is "You cannot reason someone out of something he or she was not reasoned into" and our ugly history feels bad...
