got a call from N.R.A. today.

A poll question, if I thought that the Second Amendment needed to be strengthened. I said it needed to go the way of the Prohibition Amendment.
Call ended with a Thank you.

About a month ago, I got a call about my thoughts on "American hero, Lt. Colonel Oliver North." I said he needed to be in jail for treason.
Call ended with a Thank you.

I wonder where they got my phone number.

So Tom Kean, Jr is running for Congress.

If you're in his district or attending his rallies, press him on Trump.

I got an email about his campaign. I responded to ask about his positions on Trump's policies.

I will post if I get an answer.

Kock funded op.ed in Ledger.

Today's Star-Ledger featured an opinion piece by Regina Egea of Garden State Initiative. She is worried about rich people leaving N.J. because of taxes. She is also interested in further reduction of public worker benefits.

Using the google for background on the group, it is funded by Kock brothers. 'Nuff said.

Sirius Radio parts. Help

I know. Not quite computer but this doesn't fit elsewhere.

I have a Sirius Onyx and need a new docking station. There was an online site that sold parts. Seems to be out of business.

Marij, Da cat's out'ada bag.

WNYC segment this morning. Peeps in the tri-state area are driving the two-three hour trip to western Massachusetts to purchase legal marijuana. Local shops report that 20% of buyers are from out of state.

Yeah, there is danger if they are stopped on the road but the point is, it is now, readily available regardless of what the N.J. legislature does.

If you don't want to go to western Mass., you can go to Fall river off of 95.

Barr's gift to Dems?

I believe the best thing would be if Barr gives a severely redacted Muller report to Congress. First of all, no matter what is disclosed, little or nothing will come of it. "Impeachment is off the table."

More importantly, it gives a presidential campaign issue: "What are they hiding?" That sentence can be pounded, time and time again. It will have more power than "Lock her up" because it deals with an unknown.

"places" category - 11:00 am

8 of 10 posts were about some kind of fraud.

Drug side effects.

I have 6 drugs prescribed for me. When we get the original script filled, we get a sheet with fine print, two or three pages of crap that few read.

Some of the info is printed in bold. That may get read.

So I got an email from A.A.R.P. that listed side effects of drugs prescribed for heart condition. One of the sides is depression. Yeah, I'm fuckin' depressed. It may not be from the drugs but I don't know.

THE POINT: Why doesn't the physician prescribing the shit, tell us one or two main things to look out for? Why do I have to depend on A.A.R.P. to warn me?

A.O.C. and the Amazon pullout from N.Y.C,

I wonder if the decision to pull out of N.Y.C., was to put the skids on A.O.C. and left Democrats.

This will give Republicans ammunition on arguing that Dem positions cost jobs.

If she goes and other 2018 elected Dems go, Bezos and the billionaires get to keep their money. Giving up N.Y.C. would be a small price to pay.


Physician Assisted Suicide debate.

This is, again under discussion.

A primary objection seems to be about relatives pressuring people to end their lives because they don't want the care burden or worry about the cost of long term care.

What about the possibility of a downloadable statement. "I do not and never will want physician assisted suicide as an action for myself." Or a similar statement.

They can sign it and give it to their primary physician(s) as part of their care folders. It can also be given to their attorneys.

Would this be a reasonable answer to that objection?
