Not an ounce of sexism was even implied by anything I said. You either have a less than working knowledge of the English language, or are seeing things that are not there.

Just catch a whole bunch of the little minnows and throw them into an aquarium at one of the many zoos in California; they will do what critters do, multiply . Poof – Saved. Now the water can be used for the crops: Almond, olive and citrus trees that take years to mature, grapevines same, only to be made dead by idiotic government policies.

Unfortunately, in California — and most of the rest of the country by this point — their idea of “Planning” comes directly from the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, the infamous Rio Conference of 1992. Its all bad

“Bush did it! Bush did it!”
If it wasn’t ok when “Bush did it”, why is it ok now?

They already could do that — and a lot of other things — under the Shah. But who needs modernizers when you can live in the 7th century?
I only got through half of the podcast of Friday's show before Glenn Beck started his Elmer Gantry impersonation and I had to switch. If Glenn is incapable of putting aside his messiah complex long enough to tell us some information that sounds like it's pretty important he needs to have another member of his staff handle these interviews. He can go off and proselytize on a different day. Plus it doesn't help your case against dangerous religious fanatics when you're sounding like one yourself.

Whether mental illness, Islam connected, or pure evil, I predict all airlines will find themselves suffering in business after this, as fliers will never know who to trust and will suspect all. Can’t blame them.

Grandma, you are on the right track! Even if it teaching/showing them the difference between an oak, a maple and a dogwood tree, how flowers are pollinated. Kids today are so far removed from nature that it is frightening! Gads, when I was a kid, – and my mom was no scientist, but she had a firm grasp of the world around her – she taught us things even when we were still in strollers, all manner of things… I see people today pushing a pram in their little spandex clothes, carrying their water bottles, while talking on their phones… as if their poor little babes aren’t even part of the picture!

A young acquaintance who works/volunteers for AmeriCorps mentioned that he was encouraged to apply for Food Stamps, as AmeriCorps considered it part of his compensation/stipend.
Most young 20-somethings can be talked into almost anything. They weren’t raised to have a spine, nor work ethic, nor character. They were fed “self-esteem” in school, but have no concept of how to gain self-respect … or, I would add, even why that would be necessary.
If you’ve never experienced it, then you don’t really know what you are missing. The education system and the media over the last 50 years have a lot to answer for.

Haha! Indeed, they can’t change a tire, they’ve got their heads too deeply into their smartphones.
Where did this attitude come from? Not sure. Having observed patterns all my life, I still can’t say, but I will say this: Sesame Street debuted in Nov 1969; MTV debuted in 1981. I don’t feel I can trust anyone under 50 at this point…. Well, no, but there are very few. The few under 50′s mentioned are as disgusted as I am. A big part of it depends on where and how one was raised.

It will last for generations. It already has.

Working = dignity and self-respect.
I had an accident a couple of months ago, which broke my body up pretty good. I finally get to go back to work next week. I am so excited, I’m smiling all the time!

Me too. It was the darndest thing. Boat burnt down on the bay.

Not having a tv, or wanting to waste my time waiting on online videos of them, I’ve never Seen a White House press briefing. So, based on all the still photos I’ve seen of Josh Earnest at these events, my question is this: Does he ever actually look anyone in the eye when he replies to a question? It never looks from the stills as if he does, always like he’s looking at a point in space. Is this guy autistic? Nothing against autistic people, just wondering.

I still use them. I love them.
I want my pictures printed so I can hold them in my hand, mail them in a card, hang them on the fridge.
My cellphone is an antique…ahem, “vintage” model that that crappy photos that can’t be downloaded.
you can print pictures taken from a digital source ie your cell phone or digital phone you can still have your pictures in hand

Oh, can’t figure out if it has to do with the synagogue being Jewish. Can’t figure out if Muslims are unhappy about cartoons.
Really, how deaf, dumb and blind is the media, including The Blaze?

I’m not ‘stuck’ with Comcast.
I haven’t had a television for about 15 years: Psychological/Mental hygiene…
I like my life without, have no idea what I’m “missing” and don’t care. I recommend it.

Actually, DGinGA said all that needs to be said. Didn’t see it until After I posted.
Nice post DG.

Nah…these places like Comcast deposit 200, 400 checks at a time… They just list the bank number from the check, the amount on the deposit slips and that’s basically all the tellers look at. They presume people doing business are honest & above board, they don’t have time to scrutinize every check.
I know a guy had a “small business”, deposited very many stolen checks that way, stolen from his day job. He somehow escaped jail-time, paid restitution and… And
I haven’t heard anymore about him for a few years and am just as happy for that.

I don't think Comcast meant any hard either. And people don't understand how complicated accounting can be, especially for a public company. Companies can't just cut checks out back to people. It's a pain in the ass for them and takes a lot of man hours to fix YOUR mistake.
That said, based on this woman's situation which I'm sure she explained to them, they should have given her money back as quickly as possible. It's sad it took her going to the media before they made her whole (and then some).
