  1. I wonder if the users of sundials had the same lament when hourglasses became mainstream...
  2. This thread has become quite interesting, both from the original question raised about media bias and from the resulting poster bias in the ensuing discussion. I'm reminded of an old Indian fable and a resulting poem by John Godfrey Saxe:
  3. Not sure who you might be referring to as "They" but Rael is a stand-up fellow here, willing to listen to all viewpoints political leanings notwithstanding.
  4. There used to be a poster here - Olive Oil who I believe lived in Hawaii. I wonder, has anyone heard from her lately? I'm not sure which island she was living on.
  5. Was the firing for cause, or just a reduction in force? Difficult as it may be, firing someone for cause seems a lot easier to take than the latter.
  6. Correct, although at the time the neo-conservative base that was fawning all over Sarah Palin tried to tie that comment to Obama as if he was calling her a pig, and there was quite the faux rage here on this board about the comment, despite the fact they knew damn well the comment was about policies. I do say neo-conservative base, for there were some conservative posters here who had their reservations about Palin's qualifications and abilities to serve as VP, one heartbeat away from the Presidency.
  7. While that sounds like a nice story, I'm not sure it stands up to scrutiny, for I'm sure there are plenty of urban poor and impoverished people who have probably never traveled, and are more likely to vote for Democrats. For sure, these urban folks are ones that Trump has spurned, insulted, and ignored, yet they too lack the perspective and understanding that travel affords. I say that to you in the interest of balance and fairness of argument, not necessarily to support volperdinger's comments and opinions...
  8. Well then, let me correct my question and pose it you again... Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. The seven deadly sins - cardinal sins... And you with a straight face call the former occupant in the White House a minion of the antichrist? Are you even Christian?
  9. It may be a rare occasion, but I tend to agree with you here.
  10. Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. The seven deadly sins - cardinal sins... And you with a straight face call the former occupant in the White House the antichrist? Are you even Christian?
  11. Hey now, it is possible for just about anyone to own a Tesla Model S these days... https://www.carscoops.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Tesla-Model-S-Radio-Flyer-355.jpg
  12. Aw now, why do you want the truth and a few pesky facts stand in the way of a good story?
  13. As an aside, I wonder, are any Trump University grads working in this administration?
  14. I believe you are confusing fiddling with diddling...
  15. I wonder, will the JFK files be released before Trump's tax return?
