What was the best job offer you've had and accepted?
My first job after the Army was at a gas pump - yee hah. The training the service gave me led to nothing much in civilian jobs.
Twenty-two months will go fast. Any exotic plans after that?
Probably head south for a few months then go see the people and places we never had time for until now. 😊
What a beautiful couple the Obamas make. Never a scandal in the White House while he was president. I find it rather ironic that there are still haters that seem to be obsessed with the Obamas that are still trying to bring him down. But with all the crooked things the present president has done, I guess they are trying to divert the conversation away from what's really important. Trump is ruining our country, and all they can do is mock the Obamas, one of the best presidents we've had.!!!!!
No, just a post, but since you brought up the portraits, I didn't like either one of them. Especially Michelle, didn't resemble her at all, and her dress drew all the attention away from her face.
We do agree. Trump is an ****.
The fight against avoidable misery should be the only aim of public policy. Increasing happiness on the other hand, is best left to private initiative.
How do you feel about government owning amusement parks and night clubs?
Most things the government touch turn to shit. So I don't feel good about that. 😉
My first job out of the Corps. I stayed for 8 years and learned the business. 38 years later it's a different company but same business. 22 months to go. Ha!
How did I reset a password from my WiFi?
I'd call Rooster. He knows stuff. Ha!
Do you prefer exercising your body or your mind?
I would say body. I always feel really good mentally and physically after a good workout.
You will pay good money to feel good...
So many options! Booze, drugs, debauchery, food....... I think I just spent my whole 401k thinking about it. Ha!
In honor of Rock & Roll music ... post some of your favorite R&R songs ... "Syn"
Love that song! 😊
We have had some very different politicians in office from both parties over the last 20 years. The power has swung back and forth several times and both sides have made a lot of noise about their likes and dislikes. Has anything really changed in your personal life because of these events?
Well...obama took over in the middle of the worse decline since the depression. He ended with unemployment at a record low, and household income at a record high. I just know that people are building and remodeling now, and weren't. Interest rates had been kept low. I think helping the auto industry, which was paid back, was huge.
I don't know...i just know who was in and who was out:]
I agree. It's hard to figure out what things cause other things to get better or worse, or if those things are just a natural part of economic fluctuations. There are not real dots to connect most of the time. :)
Not really and the swing of power and fairly even distribution is probably the very reason why. Two major parties and neither one has really been able to push their agenda when they have been in power. I mean right now there is a GOP friendly Senate, House, President, and Judiciary. And they still struggle to get anything meaningful accomplished. Solidarity tends to be found at election time and then it's back to squabbling for what each individual wants. Sure checks and balances is a beautiful thing but because of it progress (or regressing) can be at quite the crawl.
I agree. Sometimes I believe it is better that way. :)
My home decreased in value during Bush's terms. Regained most of that value during Obama's.
My workload significantly fell during Bush's terms, and I had to decrease my pricing. Gas pricing was out the roof, and i drive pretty far. By 2014 I had more than I care to do, and I was able to increase my pricing. Gas prices fell.
The only effect from trump thus far, on me, my ability to absorb the absurdities of government. And...it really is too soon to tell.
Are you saying that those changes were a result of the administrations in office?
What are you protesting today?
I think I'll march around with this one:
I understood the question to be about my own personal experience. Perhaps I misunderstood.
You were correct.
Everyone has their little moments xD
Holy Crap! I am laughing out loud!!
Thanks Will. I wasn't looking for sympathy, but recognizing that political policies do make real differences in real peoples lives motivated my response.
I don't disagree, I just believe it is a rarity.
He makes sense so I'm sharing his coverage of the recent Mass Shooting in Florida.
Well according to the President this could have easily been avoided had people simply acted when seeing the "warning signs". Of course there's little to no "warning signs" legislation in place that gives the authorities the legal means to carry out any sort of action. I mean the shooter cleared background checks to purchase his weapon. Just a pretty hypocritical statement for someone that revoked policy that would make it harder for people showing "warning signs" to obtain a weapon the second they took office. Gotta justify that NRA funding I guess.
You make a good point, but I gotta wonder what those new laws would look like. Then by the time the ACLU and the courts got done with them.....? I'm not disagreeing, but there don't seem to be easy fixes out there.
Liberal leadership hasn't done any favors for me. The most recent example was Obamacare. It allowed the government to take over 1/6 of the economy and pretty much destroy the worlds best health care system. For me personally, the cost of my medical care skyrocketed. My healthcare plan evaporated, my premiums doubled, my doctor was no longer accessible in my new plan, I spent an enormous amount of money on deductible expenses. It completely absorbed my savings and reduced my quality of life.
I'm sorry to hear that, Bud. I have been covered by a company plan for quite a few years and though it changes slightly each year, I saw very little difference.

Trump's military parade will cost no more than $600 per homeless vet. Very reasonable, don't you think? Here's an idea: pay $600 each to fly them to Washington. 50,000 homeless vets marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. Now there's an parade I'd watch.
I see no "need" for a military parade. It seems provocative. JMO.
There is no need for at least half of the things money is spent on in government.
Well, if nothing else we can always **** about the cost of anything in government and politics. Ha!
Attention everyone! The future has been cancelled! How will you spend your last few hours?
I think I'd join Rooster except I'd have to break out a really good bottle of scotch sit down with my wife and reminisce some really good times. . Ha!
Drinking beer and smoking a big fat hooter!
I hear that automatic/assault weapons are made to do one thing. To kill lots of people. So why do police need assault weapons? To protect and serve? Disarm the police, and I will disarm. Not really, but you get the point.
Just as dead murdered, though.
How Many Fingers Does Obama Have?
"Real patriot" says I LOVE America....except gays, feminists, protesters, people who disagree with me, vegans, mexican immigrants, refugees, the rights of natives to keep their land, the national parks, the environment, the clean air, the aesthetic beauty, it's reporters, it's movies, minorities, transgender Americans, non-christian americans, and the entire state of California. So what do you like? "Real" Patriot answers: Vladimir Putin and the Confederacy!
I can thankfully say that I have never met a person in my life that meets your description. But if I do, I now know where to send them. :)
