Re: Hijack this thread

P.S. We are not unaware of greywater systems, and the potential benefits of segregating true greywater from human waste, especially when you have applications for the greywater, like irrigating crops. But I think replumbing the house has to wait for another day. We just want to be able to take showe...

Re: Hijack this thread

We've been having an issue with our septic system -- some of you may recall we bought this house in Maine that turned out to need a ton of work, and contained so many aspects that were idiosyncratic to the builder's fancies.

Re: "Fear: Trump in the White House" by Bob Woodward - 9/11 Release

I just hearken back to Obama's personal vendetta and hue-and-cry against D'Souza, Corsi, and others who printed scurrilous tomes of character assassination about him. How he raged! How he urged that the power of the state be levied against his enemies!

Re: Defamation: Dr.Luke v. Kesha

I don't doubt that Kesha was taken advantage of and perhaps even abused in her young career, but based on this, she has either terrible advisors or shockingly bad judgment. She had everything to gain from taking the high road. The music industry must be a den of vipers.
