    My question was how could Rogers look superhuman against Dallas and the a week later look like total crap?

    Because God wasn't interested in Green Bay winning as much as He wanted Dallas to lose.

    I am reminded of the story of Job.

    Job was a righteous man, but God allowed a plethora of disasters to descend upon him (orchestrated by Satan).

    After having family members killed in a storm, his animals stolen by raiders, his body covered with sores and his supportive wife suggesting he “curse God and die”, he dresses in sack cloth and covers himself in ashes. He doesn’t question God’s motivations, he just asks that God’s will be done.

    Then come his friends with various suggestions as to why this calamity has befallen him - he sinned, his father sinner, etc, etc. - but still Job doesn’t question God.

    Finally, after all that, Job prays to heaven, “Why me?”

    God answers him with “Where were you when I created the universe.”

    I always think of this when I am tempted to bargain with God - if You do this, I’ll do that. He just chuckles and says “who do you think you are that you can bargain with Me?”

    Prayer is different and there are places in the Bible that say “you don’t receive because you haven’t asked” but praying for intersession isn’t the same as a quid pro quo bargain.

    I lived in South Florida most of my life. I used to like to point out to visitors to the area how many cars stopped at any given intersection were expensive luxury vehicles or sports cars. There could easily be several million dollars worth of vehicles at any major intersection.

    Moved to New Mexico 10 years ago. Now, at major intersections, we notice the SUVs and pickups. Still easily several million bucks worth of rolling iron.

    One more thing...the other day I was going to the supermarket about 4 miles away. I started counting white pickups- okay, I can be OCD like that. Anyway, I counted 16 WHITE pickup trucks just going to the store.

    We exchanged gifts with our employee this morning.

    At least she still gave us some cookies...

    I was merely stating both sides of an argument.

    I, personally, think that most gender confusion is a result of a mental illness. There is an entire spectrum of “mental illness” from extreme paranoid schizophrenia to triskaidekaphobia and we react to them accordingly.

    I would never allow a paranoid schizophrenic to babysit my child, but I would have no problem with a trisaidekaphobic doing so.

    The AMA, in their infinite wisdom, moved all homosexual and gender identity issues off the list of mental illnesses. I think that is a mistake.

    As for your well reasoned, researched argument linking homosexuality to child molestation...a liberal would say it is poorly sited and certainly not peer reviewed, thus unbelievable. They would counter with statistics showing the thousands of people killed by guns every year.

    I am not stating this in support of their argument, I am just pointing out how reasonable (in their minds anyway) people can be on polar opposite stands and my own way...I try to come to grips with it.

    It burns my soul to say it, but if a guy dressed as a girl wants to pee in a ladies room, and he keeps his hands (and other body parts) to himself, so be it.

    By the same token, if I want to carry a concealed weapon wherever I please, as long as I don’t use it to break any laws, I should be allowed to do so.

    I think we are missing the point here.

    The whole who can use what bathroom as defined by law does have me questioning our conservative views on liberty and freedom.

    The left freaks out that we want to be able to carry firearms. We counter with that as long as we aren’t using the firearm to break any laws (and that we have a constitutional right to bear arms) we should be left alone.

    The right freaks out that a dude - more often than not dressed like a woman - wants to go pee in the ladies room. They counter with that as long as he/she/it isn’t doing anything illegal (and that there is a constitutional right to privacy) he/she/it should be left alone.

    Both actions assume the best in people. The person carrying the firearm will not shoot people. The person using the ladies room will not molest people.

    The opposite side assumes the worst. The left thinks anyone “crazy” enough to want to carry a gun is going to use it in a violent way - and besides, guns make them very, very nervous. The right thinks that anyone “crazy” enough to dress like a woman is going to molest people - and besides, men dressed like women make us very, very nervous.

    As a person on the right, I do not agree that the constitution has a right to privacy in it.

    A person on the left will argue that the 2nd Amendment doesn’t guarantee the individual right to bear arms.

    Anyway...when I want to cut the Gordian knot, I use a sword called liberty. I would hope my conservative brothers and sisters would do the same...

    This year I had three items in mind that I could buy from the mall. Went there last Sunday. Ended up being 1 for 3.

    One item was a “as seen on TV” thing that the mall store had jacked up the price on it. I actually had approached the register with it in my hand when I saw the price. I turned around and put it back. The older lady at the register asked if there was something wrong. I said “too rich for my blood”. She shook her head and said “Walmart has it for $10 less.”

    The second strike was a popular cookbook. The bookstore had sold out and wouldn’t be getting more stock before Christmas.

    I swung by Walmart and picked up the ASOTV item. When I got home I ordered the book on Amazon.

    I will think twice before I go to the mall again.

    I agree. Unless it is a win-win, it will not last.

    I see my competitors absolutely raping customers with their prices and then complaining about customer loyalty. Locally, one by one, my competitors have gone out of business.

    I started my business by addressing what people hate about buying imprinted and embroidered sportswear for their company - set up charges and minimums. While they are standard in the industry, people view them as a way of squeezing one more buck out of them.

    Having to pay a set up charge, again, is the way companies coerce customers into staying.

    We do not charge set up charges in most instances, have no minimums, and give customers discounts based on their total purchases with us over time. Buy a dozen shirts and get the 12 piece price, buy 24 shirts a couple months later and get the 36 piece price. Need only 3 shirts for the new employee? They are at the same quantity discount as your last order.

    I was told that if we implemented this we would go out of business. Well, it is 8 years in, we are thriving, and my competitors are dropping like flies.

    The power of win-win!

    Since moving to New Mexico I have been exposed to more “if I told you I’d have to kill you” people than I ever even knew existed.

    One of those people would occasionally tell me funny stories about now declassified programs, like the atomic airplane, and just how screwed up these projects can be.

    This person had actually briefed the president on several different occasions, which led me to ask the same question you did, “is the President privy to all classified material?”

    “Oh, hell no.”

    “Who decides what he gets told?”

    “He is told what he needs to know when he needs to know it.”

    “What if he asks about a classified program?”

    “He is told as little as possible.”

    “Do they lie to the President?”

    “Lie?” He smiled. “We might withhold, but we don’t lie.”

    While our founders were all for religious freedom, it is clear from their writings that they were tolerant of a range of Christian beliefs, but never really considered freedom of religion extending to Islam, Hindu, etc.

    I can only imagine what they would say if told that the First Amendment protections were to be extended to Satanists.

    That being said, we have extended such rights and protections to just about any belief and the city would have been on the losing side of a lawsuit had they tried to deny them the permit.

    The problem is not with the city, but with the judiciary and society as a whole. Fewer and fewer Americans are self-identifying as Christians (or anything, for that matter). University students are taught that religions are fairy tales, myths, and legends and that only the weak minded believe them.

    It should not surprise us then that, given their education, the judiciary feels that all fairy tales are equal and that the stupid should be allowed to display their stupidity with equal access.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Went to the page to see the discounted merch - hey, I do this stuff for a living.

    Anyway, she has a bunch of bumper stickers that pretty much sums up her campaign. See if you can hear the dog not barking:

    Veterans and Military Families for Hillary
    LGBT for Hillary
    Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Hillary
    African Americans for Hillary
    Native Americans for Hillary
    Labor for Hillary

    I know there is something missing, I just can’t put my finger on it...

    You would think that after this election publishers might want to cling to any scrap of legitimacy they may have left and fire non-objective swine like Krugman.

    Nope. Still rushing towards oblivion.

    Elections have consequences.

    You promised to leave or are you going to follow in the footsteps of your heroes - Obama and Hillary - and go back on your word?

    The last presidential election was a mess here in Rio Rancho, NM. I dragged my family - wife and son - to the polling place early. Neither are morning people. It is 6:24am and we are the only ones in line. I am not a very popular person right now.

    Tried this method. Didn’t work, in fact it made it worse.

    I find reading will put me out, eventually. I have had the occasional really good book keep me up, but nearly every time, 15-20 minutes of reading does the trick.

    Sopposedly the Russians expect Trump to weaken NATO and that is why the are supporting him by hacking the Democrats. If this is the best they got, it is pretty sad.

  • The future of PCs and Macs is expensive: The PC is a niche now

    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.

    I pray every day that that day arrives soon!

  • New Emails in Clinton Case Came From Anthony Weiner’s Electronic Devices

    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

    Sad how while they post criticisms, they post little in the way of solutions. Lots of talk about institutionalized racism, but little on what to do about it. I am guessing their “solutions” wouldn’t be too popular.
