Here we go again...Panic...fear...

They seem to get more and more crazy.

Can we just take the Rose color glasses off and Admit we never actually fixed our racism

issues in this country. My wife always felt "Political correctness" became a Band-Aid for these problems but it never healed the problem it just kept it hidden and now we are being overwhelmed by the problems.


We have congress whose actions have possibly under-minded (or at the very least weakened the office of President) No congress in history has done this before.

We have cops going "wild west" on minorities ( sorry for the phrase but I don't know how else to describe it)

We have Frats whose ideas and philosophies belong in our "past".


It looks like we are either taking a HUGE step back OR basically seeing the truth we have ignored for so long we hid the problem.

Just wondering who are Republican Senators That DID NOT sign the letter... Also how many people know

or understand the Logan Act? Maybe if the average Joe knew exactly what happen there would be more outcry.

Anyone have a duel range oven? Are they worth it?

Our range broke and the home warranty is going to pay for a new one (the model is 25 years old no parts are made for it anymore.) So they are giving us so much money for it. Anything we buy over that amount we will pay for it. So my wife was thinking of one of the Duel oven deals. Granted most of the time it is just the 2 of us but she thinks that second oven would come in handy when she is cooking for a gang of people (like when she cooked Christmas dinner for my family.)

Is it worth the expense?

Everyone forgets that Harrison Ford is an experience pilot

Awesome. I have to wonder if they have memorials for Leonard McCoy (Bones) and James Doohan (Scotty) Have similar tributes?

When my wife and I were kids this was normal now it is abuse?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/04/dianne-meitiv-child-neglect-cps_n_6800070.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592


Danielle Meitiv often lets her two kids, Rafi, 10 and Dvora, 6, play outside without her supervision. They are even allowed to walk home from the neighborhood park without either parent present. Meitiv believes in "free-range" parenting and encouraging independence.

Unfortunately for Meitiv, the Maryland Child Protective Service doesn't approve. The organization recently found Meitiv and her husband, Alexander, responsible for "unsubstantiated child neglect" because they let their kids walk home one mile from the park in December. In a HuffPost Live interview Tuesday, Danielle voiced her outrage at the decision, which has made national headlines.

Granted we don't have kids and maybe we shouldn't comment but to me I think we have gone to overprotection to the extreme.

Aren't Boehner's words treason

“our closest and most important ally in the fight against President Obama.”

NEVERMIND: the link I got this from is broken. The news agency must have realized it was satire. MY BAD>
