    If you need a witness, pop out your smartphone and start recording. Aside from the bank security cameras, or even the ones at a police dept, you’ll now have your very own recording. :-P

    Does it matter? The bank will likely be sending them letters or contacting them for that extra money. All those transactions are recorded with cameras and a paper trail. If you get extra money from an ATM, you best return it ASAP. It’s all being tracked and they will contact you or send you notice somehow that you owe them money.

    Not only could it have been someone else’s, but it’s fraud if you keep it and you’ll have to pay it back anyway. The banks do a complete audit every day. If a teller is off by even 1 cent, they’re pulled off their machine. If you withdraw $60 and the ATM gives you $320, they’re going to find out (the cameras are recording everything) and they’re going to be contacting you.

    This isn’t like finding money in a parking lot or getting back extra change at the market (though in both cases you should tell them or turn it in to police), this is extra money, that isn’t yours, from a bank. Always return it right away.

    She seems clueless. I wonder if she’s only running against the incumbent because he’s a Republican and she’s a Democrat. She almost seems like she’d be in agreement with the incumbent, except he’s a Republican, so he must be bad, right?

    Party politics is really becoming pretty disgusting in this country.

  • October 6, 2016 at 11:59pm

    That goes for Republicans too. Haven’t you been paying attention during this entire campaign season?

    The only thing more to the story is that he wasn’t specifically trained on how to handle bullying. Because, you see, if you’re trained, then you become an idiot that treats the bullies with respect they don’t deserve. You’ll take them aside and talk to them, try to understand why they’re bullying the other kids and all that other jazz.

    The reality is that bullies understand one thing: someone standing up to them. If you’re the kid that’s being bullied, that means fighting back. If you’re an adult having to deal with it, it means some form of punishment (running laps is pretty good since this was a gym class). Once they’re stood up to, the bullying stops. As long as no one stands up to them and the punishment is something stupid, they continue.

    We had a teacher, in elementary school, that when he caught us fighting, would make the offenders do push ups. Then, he’d tell us to stand up at some point. We’d generally be tired and we’d stand up slowly. He’d say “to slow, get down and do more push ups”. We’d do more push ups. He’d tell us to stand again and we’d do it faster. If it was still to slow, he’d tell us to do more push ups. It usually took at least 3 tries for us to hop right up. Then, he didn’t care who started it because “it takes two to tango”.

    Nobody ever wanted to get caught doing anything wrong by him because we knew it meant lots of push ups.

    We were asked about guns in the home when we took our then two year old for his physical. I left those questions blank. I wasn’t going to answer them since they’re irrelevant to the health of a two year old :-)

    Geez. If you have a problem with him and his sign, stop your damn car and go tell him why you have a problem with him and his sign. This is exactly what’s wrong with America. No one wants to have any discourse, so the state has to step in (the officer) and play referee because both sides are sick and disgusting. In this case, she’s more sick and disgusting because she seems to think she has freedom of speech but that the other guy doesn’t.

    Maybe he should’ve hauled them both in and held them for 24 hours. :-P

    @Jason: Trump isn’t pushing for these endorsements any longer. It’s establishment GOP doing it now. They’re pushing for the top name GOP people to fall in line and endorse him out there will be consequences. Trump already threatened to try to unseat Cruz after Cruz didn’t endorse him at the RNC. Establishment GOP were probably planning to help him do it since they don’t like Cruz either. The establishment are scared to death of upsetting Trump because he will do whatever it takes to destroy them and they know it. This is really, really bad. Trump makes it personal and not about policy.

    I have far more respect for Sasse and Lee at this point than I do for Cruz. Cruz has caved to save his career instead of standing on principle.

    “It’s about stopping Progressivism and the total destruction of our Nation.”

    Then it’s going to be a big giant fail. No matter who wins, progressivism marches on and the nation is destroyed. Do you really think mandatory maternity leave isn’t progressivism? It absolutely is and will lead to the destruction of the nation, just like all the social programs in Europe have led to the destruction of their nations.

  • [1] September 16, 2016 at 1:13pm

    LOL. Sure he did. I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you. Dirt cheap :-P

    Cruz hasn’t said a darn thing since the RNC (at least nothing worth reporting). He bowed out and all anyone can do is keep talking about him. He’s focused on his reelection to the Senate.

  • September 16, 2016 at 1:11pm

    “Voting on principle went out the window for me with Cruz losing and with the Libertarians going after Bernie’s supporters.”

    In that case, you were never going to vote on principle to begin with. Voting on principle means you vote for the candidate you want, despite what everyone else has done or who ends up being the “chosen one”. If that means you write in your candidate, that’s what you do. If that means you find someone else that’s running that is close to your chosen candidate, that’s what you do. It doesn’t mean you toss everything out the window because “your guy” didn’t win.

    I don’t like Trump at all, but I agree with this.

    If I were a journalist, I wouldn’t be letting Trump handle my travel arrangements. Nope, not at all. Why trust him to get me there on time when he clearly doesn’t like my profession?

    Perhaps they’ll learn from this. Then again, probably not. They’d rather whine and moan about how they weren’t given special treatment. And they wonder why the American people have so much disdain for them?

    The memorial isn’t a burial site, just like the Vietnam memorial isn’t a burial site. It’s a memorial.

    If you don’t know the difference between a gravesite and a memorial, then perhaps you should find out before commenting.

    Where’s the “WHO CARES?!” option? That’s right. Who FREAKING cares?!?!?!

    What, did someone get upset because someone took a selfie at the memorial? Would it somehow be different if someone had their picture taken at the memorial? People take selfie’s for a myriad of reasons. Goodness gracious. I think the only place it might be unacceptable to take a selfie would be inside of Auschwitz (taking one outside at the gate would be fine to me).

    No. The “key man” clause allows them to depart if someone else has departed while their contract is in effect. She could’ve left each time her contract was up for negotiation.

    The only connection is that she had a “key man” clause. Those of us that listen to Glenn on a daily basis know that a “key man” clause isn’t at all unusual in the media business. Pretty much every personality at Fox and anywhere else has a “key man” clause.

    @ithinklam: It’s not just a Democrat issue. Both Democrats and Republicans are in a state of “Do not care”. At least, they don’t care beyond the ballot box. This crap effects everyone on a daily basis and most of them only care to take part during 1 day of the year. That’s a huge problem.

  • [1] August 20, 2016 at 6:26pm

    I don’t trust Trump on this. I don’t trust anyone that says “we have to take care of them” when asked what Americans will do without the ACA. If he doesn’t know beyond “well, we have to take care of them”, then I don’t trust anything that comes out of him because he’ll simply “compromise” until the free market approach is gone.

    What will Americans do without health insurance? Their community will help them out. Charities, churches, and neighbors will all help them out.

    So sorry (not sorry), but I don’t trust Trump or any of them on actual reform. Nobody really wants to reform the system because it would mean less control. They all like having control.

    “On the contrary, the safe return of U.S. citizens to neutral Switzerland was widely viewed as a victory for international diplomacy and U.S. foreign policy. ”

    LOL. If it’s an exchange of money for citizens, how is it a victory? How is it a victory for “diplomacy”? A payoff is only a victory for the captors. They get millions and now they know you’ll pay.

    We aren’t just reliving the 1930s. We’re reliving the 1800s, when Adams was paying off the Barbari Pirates (Muslims) in order to release US citizens.
