My A/C failed yesterday afternoon. Had to get a new motor for it. A/C guy couldn’t get it until today. Last night was very uncomfortable to sleep. I got a few hours in; but the wife….well she didn’t handle it well. She actually got up at 1:00 am, went to WalMart and got another fan…but it felt so good to be in an air conditioned space, she stayed until 3:00 am.
When I got up at 6:00 am this morning, I thought she was ready to kill me with a machete.
But, A/C is fixed now and house is much more comfortable; and the wife is far more “warmer” to me.
We don't have that issue here.
Some hot days, but cool by 9pm.
A fan does the trick- lucky me right?
Actually it's been cooler this spring... My tomato plants are waiting for some Global Warming...
Lake - bad year for a/c units. Must be an a/c conspiracy. Trying to kill us with the heat. Mine went out in May. I bought a fan, took ice and put it in one of those hospital bedpans, put it on a stool and set the fan behind it. Redneck a/c. Lowered my bedroom temp 15 degrees. I think a/c conspired with fridge as it quit two days later. Kerry may have been on to something.
What would your thought be on Secretary of State Ginghrich?

“A compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously, and the FBI will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace.”
I doubt that is true regarding holding “accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace”. Hillary certainly was not held accountable for her e-mail server stunt.
Comey needs to validate their existence since Clintons and jihad are no go.
No she sure wasn't and neither was her serial rapist "husband". After a lifetime of getting away with murder, literally in the case of the Clinton crime family, they know they're untouchable. Maybe Brad Thor can come up with a solution for the Clinton crime family problem.
It is a joke....must not be that funny, cause I don't get it.
Maybe they could explain it to us....at least the punch line.
Give whoever is responsible a medal!

I guess having the machete “handy” was just wardrobe “accessories”?
Do you two geniuses know for a fact that he was carrying a machete? Since this was at a kebab stand, it might have belonged to the vendor. double, you can GFY, I’m no liberal and don’t believe in psychiatrists. You just heard my explanation about the “machete”, can you say different with any certainty? Lake, that goes for you too. My whole point in my first response was to point out the lack of consideration for females in the muslim world, and that a muslim male would probably see this as a normal response to ANY woman that would dare argue with a muslim man. I merely pointed out the hypocrisy of the “religion of pieces”, I don’t agree with it at all, but knowing the way women are treated in the muslim world, I would think this would be considered normal in a middle eastern country. Apparently, you both missed that point (which is why I said I might be eviscerated) I guess it was just too subtle to you both.

I have been put in a position where “others have failed”, but it still fell to me to be accountable. Look Hillary, take the damn blame. If you don’t it makes you look even more badly. Although, I can not see how you can look even more badly.
Didn't the administration say about a week afterward that"Mistakes were made,but nobody made them." WHAT?! If mistakes were made,and nobody was giving oversight when they were made,that constitutes negligence,which is worse than actually making an honest mistake.(I shouldn't use 'honest' in any sentence concerning Hillary).
Have you been sailing?
My husband was an executive. If things didn't get done right or not at all, it was HIS fault because it was his JOB to know all and see that all was working correctly.
Imagine her as this countries executive. Horrifying!

I don’t care who you are….that’s FUNNY, right there!
Wow. I can’t believe I got a thumbs down for saying blabbermouth Shultz is ugly. Wow! Maybe it was from my earlier post saying I always agree with libs....it should have said I NEVER agree with libs. Sheesh!
You replied to a comment saying my comment was funny and you posted that 'it' was ugly. I'm sure that is the issue.
Gotcha Monk. Thanks for the clarification.
I’m on vacation right now. Spent a day in Gettysburg. Just got back to hotel from D.C. What an absolute cesspool that place has become. I can’t believe that they are pushing climate change on damn near every plaque as the reason for pretty much everything in the Smithsonian.
You should go visit the Lincoln Memorial (Temple). Stand in front of it facing it and walk done the road (on the road) to the left. Take your shoes off and slowly walk up the sidewalk towards it. Pay attention to the feel of the sidewalk. Stop at the center of the steps and relax a bit. Slowly ascend the steps paying attention to how the steps feel while looking up into the Temple. Stop when you see the words ‘In This Temple’ and relax a bit. Then continue up slowly and stop when you see Lincoln’s face and rest a bit. ‘Rest a bit means to clear your mind BTW. Then continue up slowly and enter.
They it and see what happens. : )
Rest and relax mean the same thing BTW
Try it and see what happens

Don’t they drive on the Left side of the road over there?
So to be a “right winger” traffic wise in Europe, can be construed as a Left winger here in the US.
So would I, however, this generation has a very weak sense of morals- you can tell by the non-expression on the reporter's face- HE COULDN'T CARE LESS..;.HE'S JUST DOING HIS JOB like some kind of programmed robot.
Sometimes the only thing you can save from a bad situation is yourself.
Ideally, it is better not to leave people in charge if they can be exposed as pressuring people to commit immoral or illegal acts.
Not everything immoral is illegal. Freedom of association...like gets along with like. Sometimes the boss will think that what you consider shady is perfectly ok. Sometimes not.
Cover Your Ass if you go against the boss(es), even to report a problem. Depending on where you are, you may be protecting the company from liability/PR disaster/legal action, or you may be the nail sticking up that gets hammered.
Attaching your resignation to your complaint may insulate you from retribution in most forms. How it is worded and who it is submitted to ... You might want to seek legal & PR, and management advice. Whether you go quietly or make a stink may depend on how your letter is received and how serious the violations are. How to do that without becoming unhirable obviously matters to you. Your most recent employer is the one prospective employers will want to contact as a reference.
Possibilities for who to notify include: your boss/immediate supervisor, His boss, Human Resources, the company's legal department... and even publishing your resignation letter as an open letter (NOT recommended that you bad mouth a previous employer while looking for work).
My advice in future for anyone facing this choice
- get professional advice and quickly.
Lake, when I was young I did just the opposite. I've spent the following years hating that I compromised and working to regain some honor I threw away. It's not a good feeling.....
I have resigned also in the past!
Raised that way…and proud!
So have I. In fact, because I could not find scrupulous work, for someone else; I had opened my own contracting agency which crumbled during the 2008 Housing crash. Thank you ex Presidents Clinton and Bush for the everyone deserves a home loan fiasco! Sorry for the political twist there.
1FreeVoice, thank you I really appreciat your advise. It appears to be sound. Since the above mentioned 2 decade failure, I found myself working for a rather large Corporation. Started out well. I was impressed with their integrity. Then they switched VP’s recently in my product. Since the switch, my product reminds me of a Submarine with its ballast tanks stuck open to water.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot does she mean by “they only care about the 1%”?

Cruzs’ speech was about Conservative Principles.
Yet, there is the point about his making “The Pledge” with respect to supporting the Nominee, which he did not do. However, I am pretty sure Cruz does not consider Trump a Conservative, I don’t either. So if he were to endorse Trump, and Trump does not live up to Conservative Principles in his Administration if he wins the Presidency, it will hurt his bid in 2020.
So, I can understand why Cruz did not come right out and endorse Trump.
i liked Ted's speech.
a direct endorsement from him would have seemed disingenuous, and i'm not certain it would have helped Trump, either.
i think Ted being Ted helps Trump more than Ted trying to be something he's not.
He has no chance for 2020 after this little temper tantrum. He's got no future in politics at all.
That's too much logic for red hat rubes to digest there Lake, why whould Cruz endorse a progressive it's illogical.
I agree with East, although Cruz behavior between now and the election will be critical for my future support as an United States Presidential candidate...
Exactly what conservative principles doesn’t Trump support?
* putting Americans FIRST ahead of invaders and leeches. Check!
* securing our borders so Americans can be safer. Check!
* stopping the importation of Muslims who only kill and maim. Check!
* bringing JOBS back home to help OUR POOR. Check!
* limiting hb1 visas so OUR WAGES will rise. Check!!
* supporting our troops as they should be. Check!
* standing up for our POLICE FORCE. Check!
What isn’t conservative about that???
Hillary will do the very opposite!!
* lowering our TAXES to help create jobs. Check!
* creating a budget to get us OUT OF DEBT so we aren’t the next starving mass on the planet like Venezuela. CHeck!!!!

Uh…Bryan, you are dumbazz…it aint happening in 2016, best we can hope for is 2020.
Jeez, you are an idiot. Wake up dude.
Believe me, I would rather have Cruz in 2016; but that ain’t happening. Best we can hope for is Trump wins this year, and at least stops the Hillary. If Trump fails in the next four years, than maybe a Cruz challenge that works in 2020. But man, for you to hold out hope for Cruz in 2016, that just means YOU DONT HAVE A CLUE!
 July 21, 2016 at 12:20am
I agree. I watched Ted Cruz’s delivery, and quite frankly, I found him to deliver exactly what I expected. And while he did not outright endorse Trump, he stuck with his Principles.
I thought he did an OUTSTANDING job of re-enforcing the Constitution as well as States Rights. He also indirectly endorsed Trump, but left himself an “out” for 2020…
And I do not blame him at all for taking that tactic. After all, Trump does have a left wing history, so Cruz did the smart thing.
But bottom line, Cruz laid out a very compelling argument to vote your conscience, but don’t stay home on election day.
I respect that.
