    I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara that I bought new.

    Pluses
    We live in New Mexico and this vehicle goes everywhere.
    Tough
    Nice stereo
    Reasonably reliable

    Minuses
    Crap for gas mileage - 15 MPG around town, 21 MPG highway
    Zero to 60 measured in hours
    Fabric seats don’t hold up
    Rough ride

    If I lived anywhere else I don’t know if I would own one. Around here I can’t see not owning one.

    When I worked as a store manager for Radio Shack I had a similar situation.

    My store was so low volume that I could only afford one part time guy. He was already working at the store when I took over. Seemed nice enough. I did pick up through conversations that he was a close personal friend with the previous manager.

    I would often leave at 6:00pm and the part timer would close the store at 9:00am.

    One morning I come in and noticed that a receiver that was at eye level just as you walked in the back room was gone. I checked the tickets from the night before and there was no record of the sale.

    I immediately called Loss Prevention and explained the situation. The Loss Prevention supervisor - a Mr. Nolan - arrived within the hour with the District Manager.

    Upon sharing the story they asked if they could look in my car trunk. I was taken aback, but agreed.

    They then asked if they could search my house - all the while telling me that I would have to produce receipts for any Radio Shack merchandise they found on my property. I was a pack rat and I knew that I had receipts for EVERYTHING I owned, so I agreed. That seemed to surprise them. I asked if they were going to question my part timer and was told that was none of my business.

    I left the company not long after that. Later, I discovered that the previous manager of my store, the one I inherited the part timer from, is the long time girlfriend of the son of the District Manager and that my part timer was - surprise - his best friend!

    It seems that the reason that the store hadn’t been profitable before I took it over was that they had been stealing from it regularly, with the District Manager turning a blind eye. When she - the previous manager - got a new store they decided to steal from both.

    I found out years later that this particular District Manager was fired when his district had an overall inventory shortage of about $250K. Justice eventually prevailed.

    I have been blessed with a son who takes his Christianity very seriously.

    He and his girlfriend had gone up to our loft. Since they are both adults, I didn’t really have a problem with it. A few minutes later I needed to go upstairs and I glanced into the loft as I walked by.

    They were seated, side by side, with a Bible across their laps, reading scripture to one another.

    On my way back down, my son asked for the Netflix password so they could watch a movie. I gave it to them.

    A bit later my curiosity got the best of me an I crept up to the loft area to see what they were watching...

    Take the Division I-A Conferences and condense them down to 8. Don’t want to be in a conference? Fine. You don’t have to play for the national championship.

    At the beginning of the season it will be determined by random drawing which conferences will play each other in the first round. After the first round a drawing will determine who plays each other in round two.

    Playoffs and championship will take 3 games. If the teams all play 10 games, plus one to determine the conference champion, the season will be a very reasonable 14 games.

    The major “bowl” games will be rotated through the playoff games, so there will still be “bowl” games.

    Minor bowl games can be between the also rans, pretty much like they are now.

    There, solves that...

    In the early 1980’s if a guy stopped asking after his first “no” he would have never gotten anywhere.

    I never got physical or angry, but I could be persistent.

    My wife says that she was taught that a proper young lady always rebuffed the first advance.

    All that being said, courting is confusing enough without getting the PC police involved.

    In my world, the line between “persistent” and “rape” was physical force.

    My son - who is in college now - says that they are being taught that “no means no” and that they MUST stop any kind of “persistence” at the first “no”.

    Good thing that wasn’t the case when I went or he might not be here.

  • Now Clinton insider claims that Trump WILL prosecute [Hillary] because of push for Wisconsin recount

    Crusher138 to rickmichaels

    I suspect this was all a big game of chess with three sides:

    Hillary Clinton - former presidential candidate now focused primarily on staying out of jail while, if possible, retaining enough of her reputation to continue to give speeches for big bucks.

    Barack Obama - President (soon to be former), who has always hated the Clintons like poison and...

    Donald Trump - President elect and master of the game.

    I am starting with the proposition that DJT developed a deep dislike for Hillary during the campaign. He may have previously thought she was just like every other politician, but during the campaign he has seen the depths of her depravity.

    That being said, DJT wants to destroy HRC. He made those wishes known during the campaign, but has since moderated his stance - saying that HE does not wish to prosecute HRC.

    This puts BHO in an interesting position - he can either pardon her, or not. If she is in danger of being investigated/indicted he will be pressured to pardon her, which he really doesn’t want to do. He wants her to go away and leave him in charge of the party, but he doesn’t want to be the one responsible for putting her in jail.

    HRC knows she is in deep kimchi. She has been conciliatory towards DJT for no other reason than she doesn’t want to go to jail. This recount comes up and there is one ray of light - maybe, just maybe, she can be President and this whole nightmare will go away.

    I believe that this all is completely to DJT’s plan. By moderating his stance he gives BHO a reason to NOT pardon HRC. She stupidly jumps on the recount bandwagon, giving DJT cause to go back on his “will not prosecute” statement. So...

    Soon after the inauguration the FBI will come forward with damning evidence against HRC. It will be too late for BHO to do anything. DJT will say that in light of this new evidence he has no choice but to ask AG Sessions to file charges against HRC.

    Of course it will all be for naught. As long as there is one Democrat juror seated, Hillary will never be convicted.

    The discussions kept sliding into political talk. My wife, my youngest son and I are conservative. My eldest son sort of is, but he has been corrupted by his bleeding heart wife. She is a sweetheart, but she quietly thinks Trump is a horrible, horrible person. She talked my son into not voting at all.

    Every time the election came up, one of my sons would say, “hey, no political talk!”

    It seemed that no matter what I said it was being interpreted as political talk.

    Finally, after being chastised for the umpteenth time, I growled...

    “I don’t see any of your names on the mortgage bill. Or the electric bill. Or the water bill. When you start paying those, you can tell me what I can talk about in my house.”

    If I were elected President in a contentious election:

    1. Immediately after the election I would congratulate my opponent, and start meeting with folks from both sides of the aisle.

    2. I would make conciliatory noises and when asked about the more “controversial” aspects of my campaign, I would say I was “reviewing my options” and/or “thinking them over”.

    3. After the Electoral College has voted I would start naming my cabinet - and they would be serious conservatives.

    4. Once I had taken the oath of office, I would govern exactly as I had promised during the campaign.

    I am willing to bet that Trump will be doing 1, 2 and 4. He is foolish for not doing number 3.

    Uhhh...this business runs on Macs. Our server is a Mac Mini. Our workstations are two iMacs, two Mac Minis and a Mac Pro. Not to mention the three iPads and two Macbook Pros used regularly around the office.

    We are a Mom and Pop custom printed and embroidered apparel business.

    We have two PC boxes - one is our Quickbooks server and the other is used to run the proprietary software that runs our digital garment printer.

    All of our Macs (except for the server) are also running VMWare Fusion with Windows 7. We require a very specific version of Quickbooks and Intuit has not (yet) ported it to Mac. Once they do, we will really have no use for Windows except for the garment printer.

    Crusher138 to Buckeye McFrog

    This is the crap flowing at DU. Put your hip waders on:

    Comey knows that Hillary is going to win reelection. He knows that Rs in the House will very likely rake him over the coals in endless Benghazi like hearings. Comey testified under oath to Congress that he would reopen—or at a minimum reconsider—the investigation should he get additional information. He also testified that if there is a referral from Congress regarding Clinton’s untruthful disclosure to FBI that he could open an investigation vis her FBI interview.

    Somebody in the know dropped some emails in the FBIs lap recently. (Part of the Weiner investigation maybe, I’m not buying it) This puts Comey in a box. He testified under oath that he would relook at things if more information comes to light—so basically he’s in legal trouble (perjury allegation) if he doesn’t.

    Further, if he didn’t send the letter he sent today, he would be accused of political collusion with the Clintons. He’s covering his ass. Plain and simple. He has bristled at the allegation that he is acting in a partisan way, and this (nothing-burger) letter is his attempt to get back to some type of perceived neutrality in advance of his anticipated testimony to Congress. Imagine if he didn’t send the letter. You can just see Gowdy screaming at him, “So you had these additional emails and you kept them a secret until AFTER the election!”

    My legal advice to people here is to take a deep breath. This letter is classic CYA. It’s designed to protect Comey, and that’s it. If he had the goods on Clinton the shoe would have dropped today.

    PS, watch for any and all oppo that the Clintons have to be released today and tomorrow in advance of the Sunday shows. Anything they have on Trump will come out now. The best defense is a good offense. Let’s all strap in and kick this orange bastard’s corpulent ass.

    Couple people have asked about what the oppo probably is. Here’s my best speculative shot..

    Absolutely no way someone as careless as Donald Trump has not been surreptitiously audio recorded. In the modern era, everybody has a smart phone. Odds are its an attractive contract vendor who was not required to sign a non-disclosure contract. You can guess what would be in the recording.

    Is that legal, you ask? New York’s wiretapping law is a “one-party consent” law. New York makes it a crime to record or eavesdrop on an in-person or telephone conversation unless one party to the conversation consents. N.Y. Penal Law §§ 250.00, 250.05. So, while I’m not licensed in New York, if the party recording was in the room, the answer is pretty much it looks to be legal.

    The person with the recording has probably already consulted with an attorney, found out that it wasn’t illegal to make the tape, and they are ready to drop it. Now’s the time my friend. The address to the Washington Post is -— The Washington Post, 1301 K Street NW, Washington DC 20071

    We build all of our PC’s in house and they cost a fraction of what a Mac would cost.

    I call BS.

    This sounded wrong. I used to build PCs for a living and either this guy doesn't know what Macs cost or he doesn't know what PC component costs.

    On the Mac side I started with a Mac Mini. Intel i5 processor, 8GB Ram, 500MB hard drive. This is the closest Mac comes to a bare bones PC. It does include the OS and a bunch of actually useful software, like Pages, Numbers, iMovie, Photo, etc., etc. It goes for $599.

    I went to NewEgg.com and started putting together components. They have nice motherboard/memory/hard drive bundles. I found one that matched the Mac Mini specs for $394. I went for a cheap and fairly ugly case - $59. I went for the second cheapest power supply - $79. A copy of Windows 10 OEM can be had for $99.

    I come up with $631 (plus shipping) for the Windows box that I would still have to assemble and install the OS verses the $599 Mac Mini, ready to use out of the box.

    I intentionally left off keyboards, monitors and mice since both machines can use any of the above and they are very much a personal preference.

    I also left out a copy of Office 365 which has a fairly confusing pricing structure where you appear, in some cases, to only be renting the software for a period of time. No such subscription crap in the Mac world for basic office software.

    Add to this the lower cost of use over time for Mac and their far better security and this myth is...BUSTED!

    You would be correct since - except for the Surface - Microsoft doesn’t make PCs.

    One is a Dell and one is an HP.

    The issue really isn’t hardware reliability. The operating system itself is unstable compared to OS X. Take networking, for example. My Windows PCs will spontaneously “lose” their network drive mappings, even from one PC to another. Clicking and reentering authentication takes care of it, but my Macs never do that.

    One more, but I could do dozens of these, we run Corel Draw on the Windows box to prep art for printing. Every now and then - a couple of times a week - Corel will lose it’s digital mind and start doing stupid things. Restarting the program doesn’t always fix it, usually you have to reboot Windows. I know, that could be a Corel issue (but I’m sure they would blame Windows) but the real kicker comes when you go to reboot and Windows starts installing updates! Sometimes these updates take up to an hour, all the while precious production time is lost. Mac updates are, by default, user initiated.

    I could also toss in issues with Quickbooks, printer drivers, video drivers, Flash updates, Acrobat updates, on and on...

    As a guy who started selling PC compatibles in 1983, who has built dozens if not over a hundred Windows boxes, who at one time was a Microsoft Certified Network Administrator, who once banned his company’s art department from using Macs, who used to make a living doing computer consulting, I have only one thing to say:

    Macs...are...better...

    My office is a mixed Mac/Windows environment.

    We have iPads for taking payments. We use iPhones to photograph embroidery sew outs to send to customers. Our workstations are iMacs, Mac Minis and Mac Pros. They all run VMWare Fusion/Windows 7 so that they can run QuickBooks. Everything else is done under OS X.

    We have a Wndows PC acting as our QuickBooks server and one to run our garment printer.

    Guess where we have over 90% of our issues...yep, the Windows stuff.

    Seems the Macs play perfectly well in the Window’s sandbox, but not the other way around. The Windows boxes also have many more updates which cause issues with production.

    The thought of a Windows tablet just fills me with dread....

  • Hundreds Rally At Trump Tower To Tell GOP 'This Pussy Votes' [Chicago]

    1. This is obviously rent-a-mob.

    2. I just looked at a bunch of photos from the event. Hundreds is optimistic. There might be 100 women their total.

    3. These women do not look like “regular America.” A few of the posters they were carrying looked professionally done. Most were hand scrawled screeds of obscene wrath that could not be shown on TV.

    I have seen exactly one Hillary bumper sticker, no yard signs.

    I have seen at least half a dozen Trump stickers on cars (the small-ish oval ones) and three yard signs.

    Nowhere near the amount of signs and stickers of the last election.

    Hispanic customers tell me they will NEVER vote for Hillary. One gentleman of Mexican decent went on for several minutes about how illegals are costing him money because they do jobs cheaper and how we have to send each and every illegal back and how Trump has it right with his wall.

    What is really scary...the Big Mac has not changed at all. You have!

    The patties are now and have always been 1/10 a pound each. Back when I worked there in the 70’s the meat was 30% fat. I believe it is that or less (fat) today.

    The special sauce recipe has not changed.

    The lettuce came in large bags, already shredded, 40 years ago.

    The cheese came in boxes marked “includes dairy and non-dairy products” 40 years ago.

    The buns haven’t changed at all.

    Sometimes the haze of nostalgia gets blown away by reality.

    When I worked for a Democrat Rep back in the 80’s we used to help organize local groups like B’nai B’rith who would take buses to the nursing homes and transport the elderly to the polling places. On the bus they would be told about the nice lunch the D party would give them after. Those who were really bad off would be assisted in the voting booth. Additionally, they would make nursing homes polling places to facilitate fraud. I remember one old vet who was quite vocal about the “damn democrats”. No one helped him vote.

    I don’t know why people freak at NM state income tax. It is like 2% and there are so many deductions and the like it comes out to a ridiculous amount. I think mine was $160 last year.

    In Florida my property taxes on a 1,200 SF house were $6000 a year. Here on a 3,000 SF house they are $3500 a year.

    I’ll pay a little income tax...

    I lived in Florida for my first 42 or so years. Since the park opened there were reasons to go every year - birthdays, school field trips, anniversaries, etc. When my wife and I returned to Florida from our honeymoon in Jamaica, we had a few days before we had to go back to work, so we went to Disney World. We were Florida resident passholders for many years.

    That being said, when we moved to New Mexico we said goodbye to the mouse.

    My wife decided to surprise me with a trip to Disney for my 50th birthday. It was not good.

    I had forgotten how bad Florida weather was...hot, humid, and a tropical depression scooted through flooding out the stores in Downtown Disney. But worse was the people...the Disney Cast Members were fine, but the other guests were just horrible.

    As for the cost...as long as people are will to pay it, they will charge it.

    Funny, just upgraded my 5S to a 7.

    Took all of 15 minutes, longer than regular mostly because of it being a business account. The data transfer was definitely less than 5 minutes. But then this was a Sprint store.

    I will say that our Apple store is always busy and waiting to talk to someone isn’t uncommon, even with 20 or so employees on the floor.

    All I can figure is that there may be incompatibilities between the AR and US cell phone systems that were causing an issue. That, or the Apple employee was a moron.
