Re: Hillary Rodham Clinton vs. Donald John Trump 2016

Absentee ballots have to be verified by comparing the information on the ballot with the registration information. That takes time. Also, votes by absentee still count if they arrive in a 3-day window after election day (post-marked by close of polls). This year that window was extended because of a...

Re: Rest in Peace

My father passed away early Thursday morning. I didn't make it to the hospital in time, he died about 15 minutes before I got there. I live about 60 miles away. :crying: He had been ill for a while - he was a throat cancer survivor, with swallowing issues leading to multiple bouts of aspiration pne...

Re: President-Elect Donald Trump

Here's a tweet of a letter Carrier sent to it's Indianapolis employees yesterday explaining that the employees staying will be engineers and headquarters staff, people who probably never were headed to Mexico. The fan coil employees, however, are still out on their collective ass by the end of 2017...

Re: Slarti, white courtesy phone please!

I thought that was the difference between math and arithmetic. I know a lot of people who can do arithmetic in their heads. But they never called it math. I don't think the same parts of the brain are involved.

Re: ACA/Obamacare Repeal & Medicare Reform

The GOP members knew that if the ACA were enacted and had time for people to get used to it and depend on it that it would be very hard to repeal. It is much harder to take away something as important and central to their lives as healthcare accessibility. That's why they loaded it up with poison pi...

Re: Hillary won the Popular vote!!!

I have spent a lot of time looking at the results and the overall trends. The Dems added to their percentage of votes in a number of blue states. They also increased their share in a few red states: Georgia, Texas and Kansas. I can understand Texas and maybe Georgia. But I don't understand Kansas. ...

You've missed a real piece of late 20th Century Americana. Over the holiday my younger son introduced me to what he called a real California institution: In-N-Out Burger.

Re: ACA/Obamacare Repeal & Medicare Reform

I think you mean Medicaid expansion (not Medicare). From what I read, it would throw thousands upon thousands back into the conditions they were in before of not being destitute enough to be put on whatever the state had before and not making enough to be able to afford any kind of coverage.

Gee repeating myself is exhausting :D. But I, at least, appreciate it. I find it shocking that Democrats are condemning the people upon whom the party was built -- the working class.
