Re: Rules regarding Thanksgiving

Fireworks are illegal in our small city (except those used by the city). But that does not stop others from purchasing and using them.

My wife's dog--a Maltese--is made to cower in fright, each...

A claim on some disinfectant

A spray can of disinfectant that I have boasts, on the can, that it "Kills Over 100 Illness Causing Germs."

Well, I just glanced at that, and read it, "Kills Over 100 Percent of Illness Causing...

Re: Rules regarding Thanksgiving

This is true.

But if one lives in a condominium (as we do), and he or she feels that some rules are "stupid," then he or she should move--either into another condominium complex, or into a...

Rules regarding Thanksgiving

Some governors are telling their citizens that they must not gather in large groups for Thanksgiving.

But many people are simply ignoring these edicts.

There are, therefore, really three...

Re: Mississippi and any potential lockdown

Well, Fresno is the latest California city--so far as I know, anyway--to have its sheriff declare that he will not enforce this edict issued by Governor Newsom. (Actually, I have heard that at least...

Re: Instead of fleeing the coop, Trump is trying to pull a coup

That seems unlikely.

Even if you do not like the man, the fact remains that (according to what I have heard) he told three--three!--different people that he will leave the White House of his own...

Re: An electric razor

I guess I felt a bit like a person who had just purchased a new automobile--only to find our that it had no brakes; and to then learn that brakes were optional equipment, that are sold separately.

Re: An electric razor

Apparently I was.

But I corrected that today, as I got a refund on that razor, and purchased another one--this one, with a trimmer.

Re: Mississippi and any potential lockdown

We all need to learn that politicians--whether at the local level, the state level, or the federal level--are our employees.

And that means that they definitely are not our superiors, in rank.

An electric razor

Just yesterday, I purchased a new electric razor (my previous one just quit working).

When I began to use it this morning, I noticed something odd--at least I thought that it was odd--and that is...

Re: The Dominion software

For openers, I noted that The American Thinker--which I quoted--is "really not a neutral source," but "an opinion piece." So there was certainly no deception intended.

The same can be said of...

This is from The American Thinker (no, that is really not a neutral source--it is an opinion piece--but it does provide some food for thought, anyway):

Re: Why Biden should pardon Trump — and we Democrats should want him to

Precisely!

And it is for exactly that reason that his acceptance of any such pardon would be highly inappropriate.

Not to worry, though; he would never accept any such thing (for the reason...

Re: Biden calls for healing in victory speech

As Kayleigh McEnany (the White House press secretary) said earlier today (November 20, 2020, as I write this): There were not many calls from the Democrats, for "healing," just following the 2016...

Re: Mississippi and any potential lockdown

Yes, states' rights did, indeed, acquire a bad odor when the doctrine was used in the service of a disreputable cause--even though the doctrine of states' rights is not inherently bad (and is even...

Re: Euthenasia in America?

I think that the most significant part of the article may be this:

Re: Euthenasia in America?

As I indicated previously, I am rather unsure as to the veracity of his claims; but if true, they would be terrifying.

What two parts, however, do you believe that he is conflating?

And what...

I agree entirely with the latter clause here--although I am not quite sure just what it might have to do with the former clause.

Anyway, I am a firm believer in states' rights. (Unfortunately,...

And that should be their call.

It should not, however, be the federal government's call.

Euthenasia in America?

For some reason, many people continue to list Chief Justice Roberts as a "conservative" on the Supreme Court.

Actually, I see him as a swing vote--much as Anthony Kennedy once was.

Re: How we choose our president

It is not at all "urgent."

And the fact that the presidential election was very recent is entirely irrelevant.

As I mentioned previously, that was almost the decision of the Constitutional...
