Re: Bad things happening at Walmarts

We should add all the Walmart shootings in the last ten years to make this thread even more useful. :(

Re: Joseph "Joe" Robinette Biden Jr. 2020 - 4/25/19 He's In!

Once again, the MSM has forgotten to qualify their observations by adding that a perceived problem (in this case, voters seeing a candidate as an unpredictable risk) only applies to Democrats.

:bored:

Y'know, like electability.

Re: Apple in general and its devices and operating systems

Thanks for all the comments on the iPhone XR. I received mine today. I got my cell service and all the data transferred. I used the Apple transfer scheme instead of the AT&T app to do it. Of course you still have to enter all the passwords again for mail and other apps. I like the larger display al...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

Looking forward to the discussion on what electability is, how and when it is used, and what people perceive it to be. And the related discussion of electable by whom . Will/Should the Democrats aim for the middle, and go with someone like Biden? Or aim to rally the base, to show up in greater numb...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

This is the year of the African American woman in the Democratic Party. Kamala Harris needs to be on the ticket, whether it be Warren-Harris (which will lose bigly) or Biden-Harris or Harris-GenericMale. Warren-Harris would win bigly, sir. I only hope we have the chance to prove it. This assumes an...

Re: Issues 2020: Electability

Looking forward to the discussion on what electability is, how and when it is used, and what people perceive it to be. I remain unconvinced that it is anything other than a scare word. Like a premonition: emotional but nonexistent. So good fun ahead!

Every time I see a photo of OSG he looks grosser and uglier. He is an orange Jabba the Hutt.
His face is a textbook for the micro-expressions of hate, rage, anger, contempt, and disgust. If you're into body language. And can't change the channel quick enough.

I saw that. Between all the Amazon packages that come to the office (me, the boss, a couple of coworkers and a tenant), one from FedEx is extremely rare.

Re: Apple in general and its devices and operating systems

I get annoyed when apps I haven’t used for awhile need to reload (glacially) before I can use them. I have an iPad Mini 4, 16 gig, running iOS12.4. My phone is android, no waiting. I only have the iPhone XR, so maybe it's different on the iPad, but the annoying glacial delay on the not-used-for-a-w...

Re: Apple in general and its devices and operating systems

Recommend you get a screen protector, because the larger the display, the more area for scratches. I picked up a couple before I got a screen protector. Now the screen protector gets scratch. Never had a cell phone display scratch before. Yes, I think it's the size; when I put it in and out of my ba...

I dropped my iPad Air and broke the glass early in the summer. I bought a repair kit but messed up the LCD trying to install it. I bought an iPad Air II to replace it so I will get the upgrade. I will probably replace my iPhone 6 soon but I haven't decided what I want next. I am looking at the iPho...
