  2. 13 Things

    I tolja I wuz gonna open a can of worms with this... Nodsh -"...one nation under God..." You know how many entities want to do away with this? That's the way I learned it some 60+ years ago probably you too. I'll leave the 'religious' freedoms there! Hillary held responsible... yes. Trump - I don't know - yet! Shoot - Kennedy was no angel either, but was one of the most potentially powerful presidents, they are all a bunch of ....! It meant in general - everyone respect our military, flag...etc, non partisan The rest of the points need to be accomplished. Fran - I'm done! I knew I would open a can of worms, didn"t realize it would be so big...
  3. 13 Things

    Awright - I'm gonna catch H377 for this, but I think it needs to be put on the table. To me, this board seems to be Democratically oriented - I am not! I am not a staunch Republican, but a strong one. I have been a member of this board for near 8 years, so I am not pointing fingers. Do me the favor of reading the stuff below. Then I would almost defy anyone to rebut the 13 points someone brought up. This is a copy of an e-mail I received, but it makes too much sense.... If you listen to Trump, he is hitting many of the hot buttons of the electorate. But you have to listen to him and not be distracted by his showmanship and obnoxious behavior. I have come to the conclusion that most people who don’t like Trump and what he is trying to do are acting on emotions not issues. If you look at the issues that Trump talks about and is trying to change how could you not want to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” therefore it must be the man not the issues that bother you. I like the list of 13 things that I, as a senior American citizen, want. Trump is at least talking about and trying to do something about the issues that most Americans are concerned about. My mantra about Trump is this: Truthfully, I am usually in agreement with most of what he says, but wish someone else was saying it. I am offended by his brash manner. I am getting older, my ticker isn’t what it used to be, but what matters is that he covers most of the 13 things we as seniors want. 1. Hillary: held accountable for her previous wrongs! 2. Put "GOD" back in America!! 3. Borders: Closed or tightly guarded! 4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else. 5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW! 6. Language: English only! 7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights! 8. Drug Free: Mandatory Drug screening before & during Welfare! 9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens! 10. Budget: Balance the damn thing! 11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money! Charge them for our help! We need it here. 12. Fix the TAX CODE! And most of all. 13. "RESPECT OUR MILITARY AND OUR FLAG!! Our veterans are the reason that we are free. If you believe that freedom is free just ask a veteran. How do you fix the formatting??
  4. Before Nick.... The bit** is outa her fu^%$#& mind!!! And needs to be dealt with severely... Knocking all her teeth out with one whack would be a start.... My .02 - and I'm not a violent person
  5. That's great. The last 2 good Samaritans' we've had here in Florida have gotten shot dead!! The place is crawling with lo-lifes...
  6. Happy Birthday Peggy ..

    Happy B-Day!!
  7. Why is this ISIS suckhole still alive?? It will be tied up in our 'illustrious judicial system' long after I'm dead. He should be brought out in public and painfully executed....
  8. Harvey Price Gouging

    The little chart I posted only shows 11 companies, out of that there are 49 refineries - only 7 are in Texas, I realize they are probably somewhat bigger than the rest, but evidently now is the chance to rape the public all over the US. This is so much BS. If Tesla would produce a car for ~25K, I believe he could put the oil mongers out of business, and turn OPEC back into the desert they should be. (see if they can grow corn where the oil comes from) Somebody higher up really needs to look at this fiasco.... but that will never happen - big oil controls the politicians......
  9. Harvey Price Gouging

    The biggest price gouging is going on with the oil companies! My gas started going up on Monday - before Harvey even hit. So far it's gone from 2.15 to 2.49, and this is only 4 days into it. Some points to think about - Shell posted a 72+ BILLION profit, Exxon is boasting about a 122% increase in monies.... The list goes on. Texas is a major supplier yes, but not the only supplier... Rank Corporation Barrels/Day No. of US Refineries States So WHY are our prices skyrocketing? It's a load of krap!! Anybody heard from Roky? I think he is too far south, but... 1 Valero Energy 2,062,300 13 CA, LA, OK, TN, TX 2 Marathon Petroleum 1,794,000 7 IL, KY, LA, MI, OH, TX 3 Exxon Mobil 1,706,200 5 IL, LA, MT, TX 4 Phillips 66 1,612,200 9 CA, LA, MT, NJ, OK, TX, WA 5 Andeavor[4] 1,109,615 11 AK, CA, MN, ND, NM, TX, UT, WA 6 Shell[5] 910,675 6 AL, CA, LA, WA 7 Chevron 897.271 4 CA, MS, UT 8 PBF Energy 846,000 5 CA, DE, LA, NJ, OH 9 PDV 761,240 3 IL, LA, TX 10 BP 651,000 3 AK, IN, WA 11 Motiva[5] 603,000 1 TX
  10. Caption Contest # 205

    Man, I'm horney...
  11. I don't use the laptop, it's in the garage for reference DVD's. The problem is affecting all of my machines, and the wifes IPad, and the TV's that use the network. My main concern is the MAC.
  12. This started ~14 days ago. Noticeable slow down on all my machines - 1 IMac, 2 Win10 & 1 lap Win7. Got progressively worse to the point of time outs, unable to load page, unable to locate server, etc. I have 10 tabs on the top of Firefox that I have been using for years, nothing new. They now come up, if they come up at all as maybe Yahoo, my home page, then 2 or 3 'NewTab' then a couple of 'Problem Loading Page', then maybe one tab will connect, then more of the same. The whole thing is random, some time they come up, most of the time not. If they do, a selection on a page usually gets a 'Page Not Found', took me 6 or 7 tries to get to this page. I spent about 1 1/2 - 2 hours on the phone Monday nite with some non-english speaking person from AT&T. He claims to have upgraded the firmware, and the software from his end - I have my doubts... I finally have my full compliment of tabs, to get that I had to (today) boot FF 19 times, 2 cold boots of the Mac and 1 reset of their modem. My home network is non-existent, when habib joe reset everything he obliterated the network. Now I can get the Mac to connect by both WiFi and Cat5, but the Win box doesn't see the cat5, only the WiFi and no network. I put all ethernet new cables in this week also. I hope you guys can help out some before I call these a-holes again. This time 'll keep on hanging up and calling back til I get someone that speaks english. One pissed Polack!!
  13. XELO Del Rio Texas Wolfman Jack!!! Used to listen to it from El Paso - MANY moon ago!
