Right, Right! We are in the Tiki Hut and any DECENT conversation is allowed. I won't let political differences to bias my opinion of you as a person. Many people coming from diverse backgrounds should not be expected to all walk in lockstep with one another. It would be a boring place if we were all mental clones!

Life - Some assembly required, As is no warranty, Batteries not included, Instructions shipped separately and are frequently wrong!

Kentucky Bourbon - It may not solve the problem but it helps to make it tolerable!

Statistics - Data that analyst twist to support the insane opinions of those that pay them.

The business model for commercial media is to create stress in the consumer so they find relief in the advertisements.
That's when I stopped watching/listening to "news" programs.

It's why I don't watch it now and haven't for years... If you keep in mind they are in this to make money first and deliver news second, it's pretty easy to see through their manipulations... At least it is for me.
My wife will watch the news and be all wound up about something until I explain what they are really doing and what really happened... Sometimes she gets it and other times she laughs at me like I am crazy... She cannot believe they would go so far to make a buck as they actually will...
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

The latest AARP fake news:

The funny thing is that I have no memory of saying,

"Might have been me. Someone turned me in for something, anyway. They'll probably ban me again because TOS says we aren't allowed to discuss TOS (how very totalitarian of them). I don't see a need to discuss it either: it's obviously in violation of the First Amendment. And while it's true that since this is not a government organization it need not abide by the First Amendment, it's still an unAmerican way to go about things. Oh, well. Signing off again for being a bad boy."

It might have been something I said more than 5 years ago, except, "Oh, well. Signing off again for being a bad boy." is not something that I can imagine ever saying. It's not my style. Also, "And while it's true that since this is not a government organization it need not abide by the First Amendment," lacks three commas that I would have used. Google has some cached deleted posts but no record of this.
