Advice needed:Time to replace my natural gas furnace. Should I get a heat pump instead?

I live in Kitsap county.... 1200 sq ft, one story home.
I have gas water heater and fireplace.
Before I call a dealer, I thought I'd look for some DUers with experience and/or expertise.

Yes.. I know it was Bernie's project...

But Biden was the guy who got the insulin price dropped.
Bernie ... or Biden... doesn't make a difference to the poor people who need the stuff. The price is down, and the Dems did it. The Repubs fought it every inch of the way.

My (rhetorical) question is:
How can anybody depending on insulin... or the families of people depending on insulin... vote for a Republican?

WTF is wrong with people?

Help me out with some DU snark...

A poster in a local chat room posted this:

"I believe our country would be best served if we steered clear of both, Biden AND Trump."

So far, I have "Because they both led insurrections? They both have countless court cases pending against them?... including sex offenses."

Help me out... I have a tight schedule but don't want to let this slide.

I've lived thru a lot of SOTUs...

...and I don't remember any Dem cat-calling a President during the SOTU address.
If anybody knows of an incidence, please let me know.

I turned on MSNBC just now...to check on the daily shootings...

Instead, I got an NBC poll that people are unhappy with Biden, country headed the wrong way, etc, etc...

WTF do people WANT, anyway?

I can't EVEN follow the Biden documents story..

It makes me gag.

The "bothsides" idiots are encouraged.

The "all politics is dirty" idiots are encouraged.

The RWNJ's are further emboldened.

Gym Jordan has an erection that would cut diamonds.

I've been to war, lived thru some bad times, followed politics since Ike... but this time, I can't even watch.

(It goes without saying that Biden did nothing worth 1/1000th of the kerfuffle.)

Where can I sell old computers?

I see some sites online, but I dunno if they'd take mine.

One Mac Classic, with keyboard and mouse. Does not boot. Youtube tells me how to fix it, but I don't want to invest the time.

One Imac... the one with the screen mounted on half a globe. Does not boot.

Or should I just recycle them?

Today, Karl Rove - Republican patron saint of dirty politics - ...

... said today that this House clusterfuck is a "disaster" for the Repubs.
Lying MoFo! He loves chaos. It's the perfect cover for Repub dirty tricks.
They have no Plan, no Platform, no Future....
Ol' Karl thinks we've forgotten his quote...which he stole from Sun Tzu...

The Qpublicans are whining about the release of trump's taxes..

... they are saying it sets a dangerous precedent.

I have no problem with a requirement for a Dem candidate to release his/her last 10 years taxes.

And, of course, every year while that person is in office.

Women in prison...

I was reading Louise Erdrich's newest novel - "The Sentence" - last night and stumbled onto this phrase.... "More women are in prison in the state of Minnesota than in all of Canada."

I checked, and it's true!! In fact, virtually every state in the US has more women in prison than in all of Canada.

Minnesota isn't # 1 in female incarceration. That dubious honor goes to Idaho.
All of Canada (39 million citizens) has 693 women in prison. Idaho (1.9 million) has 991 in prison at last report.

The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and our female incarceration rate is higher now than ever in the past.

Between 1980 and 2020, the number of incarcerated women increased by more than 475%. Only 5% of the world's female population lives in the U.S., but the U.S. accounts for nearly 30% of the world's incarcerated women.

WTF is going on???
