I love those 20 minute AA A319 flights RDU-CLT that seem to required to get anywhere now. Thanks Obama. (For green lighting the AA-USAir merger)

My personal shortest commercial flights:
LAX --> Ontario (and the reverse): at least this was on a tiny plane.
Harrisburg --> Allentown: This one was actually on a 737, and was the first leg of my Harrisburg to Chicago flight (at least there was no plane change).
Dulles --> BWI: Caused by a weird triangle I did involving a conference in Boston and a Thanksgiving trip to Phoenix. Small plane but significantly delayed. I timed the air portion: 2 minute ascent, 13 minute descent.

There you have it. Marijuana _is_ a gateway drug.

Only in the sense that when people discovered that they have been lied
to for decades about cannabis and then wonder if they've been lied to
about the rest.

Pharmaceutical companies want to suppress competition.
All drugs are harmful, including marijuana.
Marijuana really does interfere with the ability to think.
I've done A-B testing on myself. That shit is horrible.
Feels good, but what is that?
 
So now decriminalize marijuana and heroin and then
you have another dependent, malleable population.
I vote against it.

Marijuana is less harmful than casinos IMO (I've never smoked it but most of the people I know have or still do).

At least she didn't call it a witch hunt.
 
That would have been immature.

When I retired I gave about 100 hours of sick leave back, as there's no
payoff. I got paid for about 300 hours of annual leave.

1. The WOD is a failure.
 
2. Gotta raise revenue somehow.

Just as I said. Cutting up the pie.
Soon a bill will be passed.

OK, 1st thanks for all the info.
 
I c&p'd the details from your posts and sent them in an email to her 1st cousin who will be a soph this year @ JMU and get her feedback.
 
on a personal note....
 
after I sent the email I looked at it in the Sentbox and stared at the lines of specs listed in more or less the same order as responses. It was then from an RCA dog stare I realized I knew less than squat.
 
...again thanks

>I like having a 17 inch laptop and no external keyboard/monitor. Just a wireless mouse.
 
My Asus is the 17" and the monitor is 25". I have never unhooked it
from the monitor. I have a wired keyboard and wireless mouse. All that
stuff is beyond my level of sophistication.
 
I have a 15" HP and smaller monitor behind me but I rarely use it. And
I have an iPad and Samsung cell phone. My Google calendar is
simultaneous on all three.
 
My Win 10 home screen looks like Win 7 - none of the 10 stuff appears.
I don't adapt well to new technology. In fact my DOS screen looked
like Win 7 once icons were available.
 
I like the wide monitor because double pages are normal size for the
smaller laptop.
 
At my age I learn how to do what I need to do but I am no competition
for you young guys.
 
Hugh

Does anybody really vote based on that stuff? Yes, at a personal level, I enjoy good BBQ and if somebody says to me, "you can't be liberal and eat meant," I'm more likely to respond with "okay, I'm not liberal" than "let me think about that. But I'm not sure how that stuff translates to the polls. I think there it's mostly about jobs (and things you think affect jobs).

I wouldn't be surprised if this influences us more than we think - the nannies on the left v the prudes on the right

Wall Street banker, interned for Norquist, works for "Business Insider."
He's no liberal.

Reebok does not need all their customers. Too many customers is a
burden so they are dissuading many of them from buying Reebok
products. It is a brilliant new marketing strategy called
let's-boycott-ourselves.

The GoP is in an apparent mess because, unlike Obama and Pelosi
suckups, they are intelligent enough to have differing opinions and
voice them.
 
Obama suggested something and the liberals had to form a line to kiss
his ass. I suspect some of the rsfc people still have some brown on
their lips.
 
Obama's years were welcome to the Punch and Judy show.
