The title speaks for itself, but what amuses me is her blaming the FBI and "Russian hacks" for her election loss reeks of the same lackadaisical and unaccountable nature the millennial generation is accused of having. It's become...

I used to be amongst the crowd of folks who believe higher wages should be reserved for more skilled workers. But my opinion has changed over the years, especially in light of current events. Logically, we must consider that as...

The House of Representative's Freedom Caucus consists of several Republican representatives that are supposed to be very conservative. However, they prevented the GOP heath care bill from even coming to a vote. Which means they...

I just heard an ad on the Chicago radio station I'm listening to. It was a dental commercial and said "we share your conservative views". I don't care what party my dentist is, or my doctor, or the cashier at the market. Why...

After vowing never to hard boot my computer again, Guess what I had to do today. That is right, had to hard boot it because it apparently froze when I went to get coffee and morning breakfast. I usually just go get the stuff and...

Taskr36 There are a few things you can do. First, I'd recommend scanning for viruses and malware. I'm not sure what you use, but I typically recommend Avast Antivirus and Malwarebytes. Both are free and very effective. Make sure to remove any unnecessary programs....

Was walking into the kitchen yesterday and there Kellyanne Conway was on the TV. It was a replay of an interview. I didn't watch but a minute of it. I think I caught about the point where she says "There's...

Seriously, with each passing day I get more distressed, depressed, dismayed and disheartened over what Donald Drumpf is doing to this great country and to the world! Trumpcare is going to hurt millions of people and the ones it...

Our vice president has 3 rules that he is taking a lot of flak for right now. 1. He will not dine alone with a woman not his wife 2. If he works late and needs an aide, that aide can't be female 3. He won't attend events...

Taskr36 The rules are all sensible, even if they are a bit on the extreme end. My wife and I have pretty similar rules, although they're not exactly hard and fast rules. 1. We generally have the same rule.I have plenty of female friends, but having dinner alone with...

As tragic as the devastating tornado was in Oklahoma, I can't help feeling that if homes were built from brick and people didn't live in trailers, then we would not see this waste of life every year. I would say 99% of homes in...
Taskr36 You should probably visit Oklahoma and look at the houses there. Brick, stone, and concrete are very common. Schools are almost always built out of brick and you can easily see how those were annihilated by this tornado. Do you have tornadoes in the UK? It...

Okay, the House ended another group of furloughs in an effort to ease the length of delays. That's nice. Didn't they conveniently forget that it was their inability to pass a balanced budget that caused the sequester to occur...
Taskr36 Actually the House hasn't had any trouble passing budget bills. They've passed several since republicans got control in 2010. The problem is the senate. They're the ones who haven't passed, or even WRITTEN a budget bill in over 5 years. The thing about the...

HIPAA laws guarantee the safe keeping of information about your health. It appears that some of the gun control laws are requiring that people who take particular drugs to be banned from being able to have guns. This apparently...
