    Salute to All Things but MOSTLY Politics

    I have a poli sci degree and my career has mostly been in IT, so my degree has mostly been useless in terms of my career, although I don't regret the education I have.

    When I left for school, and my parents knew they had the school payments under control (I was the last of their children to enter college), they traded in the Buick Skylark family car (the crappiest car ever made - that I had to share with them until they bought me a 12 year old clunker for...

    It's amazing how some things which used to be considered luxuries are now considered staples of modern life. I grew up without a/c. I hated a/c unless I was at a place like Magic Kingdom in summer. As a kid, if I was in an air conditioned room for more than 30 minutes I began to feel...

    One thing that really bothers me about my daughter's university (and Freddie Mac, banks, etc.) is that they keep pushing and pushing for her (and us by extension) to take out student loans. Hard pass, thank you. Between 529 saving for almost 2 decades for my girls' higher education, a good...

    IMO the funniest Bernie photoshop is this one:

    Very interesting article. I agree with the premise of the headline wholeheartedly. Even with increasingly centralized control by the federal government, millions are still voting with their feet for less state government control, and the 2020 census will continue to show that with the new...

    Overall, I thought it was a beautiful inauguration ceremony. It's too bad the parade is truncated due to the pandemic, and there aren't the customary inaugural balls with the Hollywood-esque vibe, but it's certainly understandable with the circumstances. Inaugural addresses are usually lengthy...

    I agree that civil rights suppression seems to have become at least as much a tool the left wishes to use now as in the months immediately following 9-11 was a tool used by the right. What's more frightening now is the increasingly monopolistic tech companies that in the past 20 years have...

    I was never a huge fan of Trump from the beginning, but I am a loyal Republican. What's happening right now in the US Capitol Building is one of the most shameful events I've ever had the misfortune to watch live on TV. Here's hoping the National Guard can bring sufficient numbers and gear to...

    TBH, when I'm showing "3" with my hand, I simply go with which finger is easier for me to put under my thumb. In my case, it's easier for me to hold the forefinger down than the little finger. Apparently football and basketball officials, and basketball players gloating after made 3-pointers...

    I75/I71 Brent Spence Bridge between Ohio and Kentucky closed

    Just saw on the local news that this bridge is on target for its scheduled reopening next week. As surprising as it is to me, it's welcome news. Drive safely!

    https://www.cnbc.com/2020/12/16/covid-vaccine-us-quarantines-pfizer-shipments-in-california-alabama-after-transit-anomaly.html I would have thought some shipments might need to be returned because they weren't kept cold enough, but not because they got too cold. The good news is that the doses...

    Cruise, to me, always seems to demonstrate the Napoleon Complex, aka short man syndrome. This outburst falls right into that.

    I've personally witnessed someone being berated in a similar way, with similar language but also with a cup of water being flinged down a hallway. It was a one time incident. The employee who was yelled at filed a complaint with HR, and HR reprimanded the offending employee, though they did not...
