Question on our phones V-Tech

When my wife and I moved into the Condo we bought a set of V-tech phones. One regular cord phone (which was placed in my man cave do to where phone modem/wireless box is.)

We have 2 satellite cordless phones. One in the living room and one is the bedroom.

We have not had these phones a full year and the living room phone died on us earlier in the week. Not holding a charge nothing.

Now we are seeing the bedroom phone is going. Can't hold a charge.

Does this happen a lot with these type of phones. Do we need to buy new cordless satellite?


I am trying to explain one of my winger relatives that this culture of someone running

as soon as they see a police officer/car does NOT mean they are guility. Yes, I am a white guy but I have lived in some depressed areas of cities I lived in. This view point of guility until proven innocent because they ran or in a certain area of town is just wrong. We need to stop with racial profiling we need to improve the economy in those areas.

I remember one time my wife and I where sitting on the porch speaking with the neighbors in the connected house. The gentleman was black and the girlfriend was biracial. We notice several cop cars go down on street a few minutes later they started going up and down our street and others around us. The black gentleman had left the porch to look down the street just to see what was going on. he was about to suggest especially my wife (who is very naïve) should go in when the cop car stopped in front of the connected house and started questioning our neighbor who was still basically on the property we share.

Why are you here? Where do you live?

My wife got pissed this was happening and called to the cop What's wrong? Why are you bothering my neighbor? He has been talking with us the whole time.

The cop kind of glared at my wife but got in the car and we didn't see a car go down are street again but the intersecting streets still had traffic for a half hour.

Anyways I got off subject and I am trying to prove to this winger relative that Freddie Gray was minding his own business and have been killed by the police.

I know the little boy in Ohio was just playing in like a park/court yard by his home when the police car just ran him over. But are there any other cases I can point too.

And just for my understanding--From what I heard Freddie Gray didn't have a record with police correct?

Have the 6 officers been arrested yet? Have their pictures been shown yet?

Anyone brave enough to put FAUX News on to see heads exploding?

My wife has that channel blocked on the TV and I forgot the password,

MSNBC had a banner up stating that Gray's arrest was an illegal one.

ID Please?!

When did the United States become the USSR? It seems now at days a cop can go up to a person and demand they ID themselves just for being themselves.




These are just three examples but seriously it seems now at days not showing your ID to cops is a reason to get arrested. I know a few people are going to say "If you are doing nothing wrong why shouldn't you show your ID to cops".

My problem is that I remember before the patriot act these type of stories didn't happen. Also how many people take ID if they are doing their daily jogging/walk? How many women--Maybe my wife is strange... If my wife and I are going to the store together she will leave her purse at home because I have my wallet and the MAC card. So how many women do that?

hmmm, could this be connected together?

Let me understand... No one really knows why Mr. Gary was being arrested?

Prom Dress Sparks Debate for Being Too Revealing

The mother of an 18-year-old girl is speaking out this week after her daughter was kicked out of her high school prom on Friday for supposedly violating the school dress code.

Connie Briceno went prom dress shopping with her daughter, Mireya, and did so with the Muskegon High School dress code in mind, she says. “The guidelines specifically said backless dresses are acceptable,” the Michigan mom tells Yahoo Parenting. “The rules stated the dress needed to adhere to the ‘fingertip rule’ – meaning the dress had to hit below your fingertip when standing with her arms by your side. They also said no midriff showing, which to me means stomach. And they said the words ‘backless dresses are acceptable.’”

Seems like a double standard to me.

What irked my wife even more was down in the article her mother stated:

Connie says her daughter left the prom immediately, without inquiring about the unfair treatment. “I’ve taught her to be respectful, and that if you are told something by a teacher, you listen,” she says. “She’s not one of those people to ask why and question authority.”

Still, once she got to the parking lot, Mireya called home crying and asked what she should do, Connie says. “She asked what she can do, and I said ‘there’s nothing you can do.’ I told her to go to dinner with her boyfriend, and try to enjoy her evening,” she says. “She was really upset. She has her boyfriend’s prom in two weeks, but still, this was her prom. She missed out on a memorable time with her friends

My wife was irritated. You can question authority respectfully. Why didn't the mother go down to the prom ask to see the principal and ask why her daughter's backless dress was unacceptable when your rules state that backless dresses are acceptable.
