Re: Trump's Trade Follicy

I assume it's to win back farmers and claim victory over China, while stiffing the manufacturers. So much winning!

Re: Hijack this thread

Some phones have a built in system you'll find under "settings". Mine doesn't. :( So I read ratings of caller block apps. The best ones aren't available for androids, and I wound up with Calls Blacklist. 4 blocks in the past couple of hours. :-D

Re: Pre-Debates: Who Are Your Top 2 Democratic Presidential Nomination Choices?

Pete has a message. The “can win” part I’m not so sure about... I wondered about that when a skinny Black guy with big ears announced he was running for president. I was impressed with his energy and his beautiful, hopeful speeches, but I was sure he would never be the Democratic candidate. :oops: ...

Re: Hijack this thread

Yes, but I don't anticipate any problems with that. The only people I know there have a different area code. Also, the app notifies you when it blocks and keeps a log of the blocked calls.

It's possible that that the 21 is the country code 021 for China. Apparently, the US is currently being spammed with Chinese scam calls.

Re: Hijack this thread

I've had 4 calls in the past 3 hours, but my phone doesn't ring. The call is disconnected immediately. The number is 212-646-xxxxxx. Yep, 6 numbers, different for each call.

Any idea what's going on? Seems like a fishing expedition of some sort.

Re: ... and put your left hand on your phone.

In my community, there is a lot of prayer all the time. I walk away from it. If someone is offended, I quote Matthew 6:6. Lots of interpretations, but all of them are about praying in private, not putting on a show.
