  1. If you say something often enough it may come to be. Take this post down before it becomes a case of speak of the devil and the devil appears. I'm betting that people are goofy enough to elect her on the basis of her being a black female and the Dems are cynical enough to nominate her for the same reason that they nominated Joe Biden. It's a no brainer. He is a no brainer. She is a no brainer. If they only had a brain said the scarecrow.
  2. It would be very interesting to see what the law says about mandatory education in DC. Most, if not all, states must provide education up to the 12th grade for all children. If they toss them out of public schools what alternative are they going to provide? Everyone has the right to refuse medication even if it results in death. I see the lawyers circling the wagons.
  3. Why set them up in the Ukraine when we have Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit and San Francisco? Apologies to the regular people living in these lovely cities. Stay safe! OK, that was mean mea culpa.

  6. Jokes on me! I just looked at this and was going to make a comment about people who couldn't keep the nominative and objective case of pronouns straight when writing. It drives me me crazy. If I read between he and I once more ....... Although I see it doesn't matter any more since pronouns seem to be as slippery as gender. I think I'll just start using X chromosome and Y chromosome individual. I know that is going to insult some who can't deal with what God gave them chromosome wise but to misquote Popeye the Sailorman, "You is what you is." Let the grammar police and those that have problems with biology deal with that one.
  7. I was told it was Landscape One doing the work. They may or may not have designed it.
  8. Better pray that it was! What a mess that would be. It's odd but the right side by Harley-Davidson has been drying up over the last few years. There were two spots where there were seeps or springs. Neither is as wet as they used to be. The cattails that were growing in the one area disappeared. Ditto the plants that were adapted to wet areas. Can't explain it. I don't think that there was any measures taken on that side to control drainage.
  9. There is a bid out right now to do the left side. It is apparently being handled as two different jobs.
  10. Most folks are nice if you are nice to them. Country of origin is not really a factor.
  11. I have nothing against Punxsutawney (see I can even spell it) it is that rodent. I have a blood feud with his relatives.
  12. Since when it is disrespectful to designate an individuals country of origin? I think it is more disrespectful to refer to them as "those people." Can we just stop with the political correctness? We are all PEOPLE. There are descriptive terms that are used to single us out from the herd. Birth place is one of them. If we are going to start being offended by people asking "where are you from" we are all going to be constantly upset. The only problem I have is that when you mention DuBois your have to tell people close it's to Punxsutawney. That stupid rodent has a widespread reputation.
  13. I'm pretty sure that chocolate kills mice. The mouse was certainly dead and the packaged hot chocolate mix was certainly empty. He died happy!

    WARNING

    How do you feel about her support for bill S2285? "This act would amend the current law so that courses in family life or sex education would be taught in grades six through twelve and would be appropriate for students of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Teachings would recognize pleasure based sexual relations, different sexual orientations and be inclusive of same-sex relationships. The act would also provide that instruction include gender, gender expression, gender identity, and the harm of negative gender stereotypes. This act would take effect upon passage." Maybe her semi naked twerking is the lesser of two evils.

    WARNING

    That type of body is becoming the norm. It is not as upsetting as that type of behavior among elected officials also is becoming the norm. Wanted candidate for elected office stupidity and exhibitionism required. Preference given to candidates with skin dark enough to call racial discrimination when backed into a corner.

    WARNING

    Stupidity knows no racial boundaries. Who notices skin color when an elected official is doing something like that publicly and then posting it for all the world to see? Given the choice I think I'll vote for the philandering politician who at least keeps his/her clothes on until he/she is behind closed doors.
  17. Fauci will be waiting at the dock to inoculate them with the Covid vaccine. Then there will be a huge discussion as to whether his teams will have to go into supermarkets and vaccinate the bananas. The next step will be booster shots for all tropical fruit. If they decide that it has been passed on to domestic fruit they will be out there sticking needles in apples and blueberries. The fruit police will be at your door and you had better not be harboring any unvaccinated fruit.
  18. If she ever gets involved in a filibuster she could try twerking instead of babbling.
  19. There were memorial plaques on the original wall. I was told that they removed them and they were saved. Perhaps they repositioned them and that is what they were cleaning. None of the volunteers (conscripts ) actually ever fell, rolled or slid off the embankment. The nearest was a fairly large man who went about half way. The lighter you were the better chance you had to not roll into traffic. Motorists were very good about it. My hat blew off one day and while I wasn't about to chase it cars stopped and let me retrieve it. We weeded the area by the steps for the last time the summer of 2021. Most of us could still climb it although weeding was more likely to be done sitting down than standing up. If you see me in future years climbing it just to see if I still can .....wave. Be prepared to stop if driving by just in case.
  20. The Republicans can run Sarah Palin against her. Do you think Herm could get a grant to build a wall? We could secede from the union.
  21. A combat veteran beat a 13 year old girl. I'll bet his ex-sergeant and army buddies sent congratulations. Maybe flowers?
  22. Again the local government is opening itself to accusations of favoritism. The allocation of contracts especially an exclusive one is a very delicate area. This is a case of "Caesar's wife." They need to tread very carefully especially since there is an existing service. I hope that they rethink this.
  23. The Doomsday Clock is set at 100 sections to midnight. It has been set there since 2020 and is as far forward as it has ever been.
  24. I've never tried head lettuce . I was just wondering what made it head up. Out of curiosity I looked it up. It says short days and cool night temperatures. We have had cool nights. Don't know about short days. I was thinking lots of water. Cabbage heads up really tight after a good rain. I'm sure that yours will be tastier than the stuff that passes for head lettuce at the supermarket.
