“Have a good day!” How many times that phrase is said is it actually meant? Out of 10..

I usually mean it unless I'm saying it sarcastically.

I feel like my Danny Glover days are becoming more and more frequent.

It's not the age. It's the kind of mileage we put on our bodies. When my life is over, I want to go out thinking, "Life! What a Ride!!"

Russian curler who won Olympic medal suspected of doping puts sport under scrutiny. Russian curler Alexander Krushelnitsky. This isn't the first time Russian's are using performance-enhancing drugs before or during the Olympics.

Maybe it's training for a rest home. I can't believe all the coverage it got.

The thing that has me confused, is why the hell would you use drugs for something like "curling, which is just shuffleboard on ice?" It's not like it's a real sport.

It's not even as exciting as shuffleboard. It is arguably the slowest, most uninteresting sport in the world.

Presidents Day: Be sure to celebrate by going to work and then buying yourself a used car and discounted mattress on the way home. One of my favorite holidays.

I do my best to limit it to a couple hours each day and get it out of the way early. Should be smooth sailing the rest of the way.

I don't care if there was or wasn't collusion. I don't care what Hillary knew or what POTUS didn't know. A foreign element has successfully infiltrated our election process and manipulated our social media, and nobody in the current administration seems to give a rat's ****. That's what I care about.

Not all congresspersons are read into sensitive positions, therefore they do not need access. If they are on a sensitive committee, they are given a clearance and are briefed. The way it was explained to me many many years ago is that they are not required to go through the scrutiny of an investigation because they are deemed "trustworthy" by virtue of them receiving the trust of those who elected them. (Drove me nuts when I heard that)

Come on Linn. You know better than that. ALL personnel entering the military, or other government agencies, in sensitive jobs, civilians, military officers and enlisted, are granted an interim security clearance, with access to classified information until their final clearances are adjudicated. (It may take up to a year for a final TS to be granted.
Let's look at congress.... give me some names of any in congress who have been denied a security clearance. Security clearances for congress are rubber stamped. (There are many in congress who would never be able to get a clearance if they had to meet the standards everyone else has to meet.) This is nothing new.

It would be a presumption that Congresspersons have been vetted. I am also not that sure that all congresspersons are read in to the highest level information. There just seems to be a laxity in this administration that has never come to the fore in any prior ones.

I am equally concerned at how many people in this administration have access to national security information without full clearance. Shameful - absolutely shameful. You would think this was something about which Trump would really care, but it seems that personal loyalty is more important to him than loyalty to the country.

This is supposed to be a farmer to table program and I'm pretty sure it will be figured out.
A can of tomatoes with some salt in it sounds a lot more nutritious than nothing at all.
Millions and millions of dollars have been wasted with no food going to kids who need it. Look at the school programs that have taken the place of parents. They are already feeding massive amounts kids.
In our area kids get a lunch no matter what the family income is.
Check your figures, it is a growing problem that the multiple wives and kids are getting
help from either the feds, the state, the county or charities. It is becoming a very real problem in some parts of the country.

You may well be right. So far, I haven't seen any specifics about the program, so it's difficult to judge whether it would succeed or not.

Just heard tonight that 1 in 20 adults are on disability. The previous administration felt it was better to get them on disability than to have unemployment look so bad.
I personally know several able-bodied people on disability. Apparently there is a certain doctor who will make sure you make on the
disability list.
I also know people who do get supplemental support from the government so they will not work extra hours.
How about the middle easterners who have multiple wives and kids? Are they entitled to be paid for everyone in their families?
I, so far from what I know, do agree that delivering food to the homes as opposed to just handing money may be a way to tackle this problem.

I'm sure there are any number of people who are on disability who shouldn't be there. honestly, there isn't one government entitlement that some percentage of folks are not abusing. If the Middle Easterners are not citizens, I don't believe they are entitled to anything at all. As for delivering food, there are costs involved that no one is mentioning. Where will that food be stored? Will there have to be warehouses rented or built? Who will pay for them? How will that food be distributed? Suppose those folks don't have cars to get to a distribution center. Someone will have to deliver the food. That entails costs of transportation, gas, vehicles, depreciation, and people to make those deliveries, etc. I'm leery about how nutritious that food will be. How much waste will there be if the food is fresh? If it's canned, frozen or dried, it will contain a lot of salt. The idea may seem good on its face, but I'm willing to bet that it hasn't been well-thought out.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Eighteen school shootings so far in 2018. That's the price of freedom?

Here is my take....
In 1791, when the second amendment was written, there was about 4 million American citizens (Not counting native Americans, and of course, slaves). No police departments, no national guard.
People had to protect themselves from attack, threats were very real, and help was not a phone call away. And the arms were flint locks and muskets.
There were no corner stores to pick up a pound of chicken from. Most people hunted their protein.

I am all about responsible gun ownership.
But tell me, please...
Who, other than the military, needs an ar15? They are a weapon made for killing people, not protecting a family from a person...killing people. Magazines that hold multiple rounds. Semi automatic. Available to anyone, 18 and older, that hasn't made it into the system.
So...why not hand grenades, missile launchers, pipe bombs?
No one, well, not me, wants to take people's 12 gauges or pistols. But why not have to have a renewable license? A test? We do it for autos. Why not guns?
People say...there are already too many guns available. If a bad guy wants a gun, they will get a gun. But...the manufacturers, the people driving the
n r a, they are still pumping them out. And .....instilling it in the brains of the people, that liberals want to take your guns....so buy more guns, deadlier guns.
Absurd.

Ridiculous.

You know I am not referring to people who get into trouble not of their making. there were five in my family and I definitely know what hunger is but we were never thrown onto the taxpayers. That was unthinkable to our family. We now have five to seven generations who think welfare is a way of life and the more you have the more you get from the taxpayers.
Have as many children as you (by yourself) can take care of. The others should be offered $1,000 to be fixed.

We agree on that. One of the reasons that we have generational welfare is that it's more lucrative to stay home and collect welfare than it is to work a minimum wage job and, if you work, you aren't eligible. What we need is supplemental assistance for those who are capable of working, but can't earn enough to care for their families. (Yes, you shouldn't have more kids than you can afford.) The government should say you go out and earn as much as you can and if you can't make ends meet, we will give you the difference between what you can earn and what you need, as opposed to giving them everything they need without a work requirement. Naturally, there are people who are elderly, disabled and children who can't work and they are a different story.

How about fixing anyone who keeps reproducing irresponsibly? The nastiness hurled at Chip and Joanna Gaine for having their fifth child - more power to the. At least they are not thrown on the taxpayers to pay for.

If you can care for that many children, fine. It's the ones who can't care for one and then go on to have several more that I'm tired of paying for. Of course, there are situations where someone has three or four kids and some crisis happens and they find themselves in dire need - husband dies, they lose a home, wife can't make enough to keep them together, etc.

I believe that was proposed at one time, but who does it really hurt - the children. Easier to have the mom's tubes tied after two kids that she can't take care of, but I think that might be ruled unconstitutional.
