    Try changing your battery you iphone users!

    My iPhone is used every day.

    My iPhone is 4 years old.

    My iPhone can go 2 days without being charged. It has been as long a 4 days on standby with no problem.

    My Droid phone died at about 3:00pm everyday, necessitating me to swap batteries. I actually had two chargers and four batteries between home and work.

    Ya'll can place and twist your Droid phones. I've had both. iPhones are better.

    That doesn't mean I support Apple's just means they build a better phone.

    Why would there be alligators in a Disney-made lagoon?

    In Florida there are gators in anybody large enough to support a gator.

    My neighbors found a gator in their pool. They were over 100 yards from then nearest body of water that could support a gator.

    Not too long ago the manager of a Miami Subs restaurant on Federal Highway in Pompano Beach found a gator in their kitchen. It was almost 6' long. It came up through a 6" diameter drain.

    My only problem with this is - why haven’t they done it already? By “it” I mean a large, coordinated terror attack involving multiple targets and infrastructure.

    Have we infiltrated them to such a degree that they are unable to commit such an attack? Doubtful.

    Are they so few in number and so incompetent that they just haven’t been able to do it yet? Maybe.

    Our current situation leaves us with two alternatives:

    1. They can’t pull off a big operation
    2. They can pull off a big operation, but haven’t yet

    Option 1 is obviously the better of the two, but the least likely. Our best option in this scenario is to spend our resources on continued surveillance and interdiction.

    Option 2 means they are just waiting for the right moment. If this is their current state, we need to focus on response readiness - both as a government and as individuals.

    I am on the board of our Public Improvement District. We have about a $1 million annual budget.

    We got a list of properties that haven’t paid their assessment (it is part of their property tax) and there were 6 pages of single space properties that were delinquent. Some were delinquent as many as 5 years!

    Upon closer inspection, I determined that nearly all of the properties were owned by banks or developers.

    When I inquired about this I was told it was common practice for banks and developers to not pay their property taxes until the property is sold. At that point the delinquencies are just added to the sale price of the home!

    I was told that tracking and paying taxes on all of the properties these developers own would cost much more than any penalties they incur.

    There is some stuff in the past that we don’t need to revisit:

    1. We polluted our air and rivers horribly. We might have gone too far with current clean air restrictions, but our rivers and lakes were really bad for a while there.

    2. There was racial discrimination. Again, we have gone too far into Affirmative Action land, but America wasn’t a great place to live for a lot of blacks in the 1950’s.

    I, in no way, wish to revisit the above circumstances. With those two additions (or corrections) I heartily agree with your list.

    I use VMWare Fusion for the same thing.

    Fusion actually has three modes:

    1. You can run Windows full screen and not see OSX at all
    2. You can run Windows in a Window. I use this with dual monitors - I run Windows on one monitor and OSX on the other.
    3. You can run Windows in Unity mode. In this mode Windows programs appear as icons in OSX and all of the Windows stuff is in the background.

    Peripherals are seamlessly shared between operating systems. You can reconfigure the Windows side to use more or less RAM, more or fewer cores, and even adjust the hard drive space used. I can even drag and drop from one operating system to the other.

    I have discovered that Windows runs very fast on Macs. I still need a Windows box to run one specialized t-shirt printer, but we have migrated all of our other computers to Macs with Windows available under Fusion “just in case”.

    Just bought the wife a 13” Retina Display Macbook Pro, loaded (16GB RAM, 1TB Fusion drive).

    I am in the middle of installing VMWare Fusion and will migrate her old Windows 7 laptop to it. She will then be able to run her digitizing software (Windows only) at the same time as OS X, where she has everything else.

    This is easily the fastest laptop I have ever worked with. There is something cool about being able to close a laptop and open it hours later (or days) and have it be instantly exactly where you left it.

    I spent way too much on it, but it was part of a lease package. Apple has a GREAT leasing promotion going on. I am getting well over $10,000 worth of equipment for $209 per month, 36 months, with a $235 buy out at the end.

    Medicare is a federal program. Governor of any state has little or no control over who gets it.

    In my conservative viewpoint, a Governor lowers the number of people on medicade/medicare and food stamps by bettering the economic conditions of the state. For a primer on how to do this look to Indiana.

    She has not significantly lowered taxes nor improved the environment of the state for business.

    She could have fought for Right To Work, but didn't. She could have fought to change our taxation system from a business unfriendly Gross Receipts Tax basis to a more business friendly Sales Tax basis, but didn't.

    Seems she spent most of her energy on education issues, which while pressing, are mostly the result of socio-economic realities that no governor will be able to change. Plus, no matter how good she did on that issue she would never be credited with any gains. See President Bush's No Child Left Behind for an example of unappreciated and denigrated effort.

    Since she is my Governor, a couple of thoughts:

    Here in NM we have over 50% of the population on Medicare or Medicade. I have not seen her take any steps to reduce this number.

    Here in NM we have over 21% of the population on Food Stamps. I have not seen her take any steps to reduce this number.

    One of her signature issues was repealing drivers licences for illegals. We have finally have a law that addresses the issue - sort of. They can still get drivers licences, but they look different than regular licences. Yay.

    She has not been a kickin’ ass and taking names kind of Governor.

    Then she STUPIDLY injects herself into national politics by STUPIDLY repudiating the candidate that is going to win the nomination. She compounds this STUPIDITY by snubbing the candidate when he visits her state.

    Trump, in classic Trump mode, repays like with like and rebukes her from the podium when visiting New Mexico.

    She then STUPIDLY mouths off about how offended she is.

    Governor Martinez is not a rocket scientist.

    Any feelings/thoughts on how the doctor is doing down there against McCain?

    McCain is from the next state over, but from what I hear it is a microcosm of what is going on nationally - the establishment vs the upstart. The GOP-E seems to be circling the wagons to protect the McCainiac.

    I personally wouldn't be surprised to see him step down for health reasons. Might want to do that while there is a Republican governor.

    Rio Rancho is a city of about 90,000 just outside of Albuquerque.

    It has a colorful - if short - history. The city was founded on land fraud. If you have seen “Glengarry Glen Ross” you know about early Rio Rancho. In that movie they are selling rubes chunks of worthless desert land as retirement. The feds caught up with the real fraudsters and made them fulfill their promises of roads, schools, etc., and Rio Rancho was born.

    The feds must have liked what they saw because Rio Rancho became witness relocation central. We have the largest Italian American club west of the Mississippi. Our main highway is named after a former mayor who was in sanitation and labor relations in New Jersey before “moving” here.

    Now we are home to an Intel plant, an HP facility and several call centers. If you want to live in the Albuquerque area and want to be in the safest city in the state, with really excellent schools, you buy in Rio Rancho.

    I have a theory.

    The Rats realize that the national debt is a problem.

    They also realize that cutting spending is political suicide (for them).

    The only way to fix the problem (in their minds) is to inflate us out of debt.

    Inflation is usually bad because historically prices go up and then - eventually - wages go up. There is much economic pain until the wages eventually catch up.

    They have discovered that if they can force wages to increase, they can do inflation without the pain. Wages will go up first and prices will follow. People won’t really be earning more, but most will be too stupid to figure that out.

    They get the political benefit of “raising” people’s wages AND can make inroads on the debt.

    I had a co-worker who “had a line on” Rolex’s that were so good you couldn’t tell them from the real thing. They had “supposedly” fake serial numbers and appeared by all common standards to be real. He sold them for $250.

    I never bought one, though I was tempted.

    I found out, years later, that they were real Rolex watches. A friend of his had stolen an entire shipment of Rolex’s and discovered, because of the serial numbers, that they were difficult to fence.

    The truth was discovered when one of the purchasers died and his heir, thinking that the watch was genuine, took it to a jeweler for cleaning and maintenance. The jeweler checked the Rolex against a database, discovered the property was stolen, and called the police. The heir had no idea where the watch came from, was able to prove he had inherited it, and so was not prosecuted, but the watch was confiscated.

    I do think education needs to be changed in some fundamental ways.

    My friends who have home schooled their children report that having flexible hours and allowing the children to choose the order of study works very well.

    I think homework is a lazy teacher’s crutch. If you can’t effectively teach a concept in an hour, sending them home with hours of “practice” isn’t going to make them any better. What is does do is give the children with supportive, interested parents a huge leg up. Kids that lack someone at home to help them become frustrated with school and are more likely to drop out early.

    I could go on and on, but all you really have to do is check out the school systems that are kicking our butt. Some are strict and long (mostly Asian countries), but some, like Finland, have taken on a much different approach with great success.

    First of all, I was a Cruz guy and am not particularly enthusiastic about Trump.

    Secondly, you would have to be blind to not realize that Trump has struck a chord with a large chunk (but not majority) of the American people.

    A small, enthusiastic group can often prevail. Supposedly only about a third of the colonists were in favor of independence.

    There has NEVER been a President elected with broad appeal. We have had Presidents elected with less than 40% of the popular vote and 4 have been elected with over 60% of the popular vote. The vast majority of Presidential elections are within a couple of points of 50%. We have ALWAYS been a divided nation.

    Back to my point, ENTHUSIASM wins elections. I don’t remember anyone who was excited to vote for Dole, McCain or Romney. There are people out there now who just can’t wait to pull the lever for Trump. Not just to defeat Hillary (I’m in that camp), but because they like Trump and think he will make America great again.

    A candidate who people are voting FOR will always win.

    Our last two races were primarily anti-Obama. Few on the Republican side were really excited to vote for McCain or Romney. Not because they weren’t conservative enough - an argument for another time - but because they were BORING! They were the vanilla pudding of politicians. While we may have disagreed with Obama, you have to admit he fired up a lot of people.

    This election the tables have turned. While there is some ginned-up enthusiasm for electing a woman president, I think many Democrats don’t want Hillary to be the FIRST woman president. The rank and file D’s are very tepid this time around.

    I saw him say that standing at a podium.

    I like Ted...used to like him more...but he is becoming Nixon-like - stranger and stranger as time goes by...

    How much does Graham despise the gentleman from Texas? He’s stopped short of accusing Cruz of being the Zodiac Killer, but he’s made his disdain known several times, publicly.

    If you are justifying your argument by quoting Senator Leslie Grahamnesty you probably don't belong on FreeRepublic.

    I have been a Ted Cruz supporter. I gave money to his campaign. I have defended him.

    This morning I heard a clip where Senator Cruz said,

    “Indiana, the eyes of the nation are upon you.”

    That, in a nutshell, is Senator Cruz’s problem.

    Who talks like that? It sounds like a politician. Such language may be appropriate for an inauguration address, but as a speech at a campaign rally, it rang false to my ears.

    I live in New Mexico, where the diarrhea duo have decided that Kaisich is to be the single on the ballot against Trump.

    I have been a Cruz supporter, but it looks like I will be voting for Trump.

    I will NOT cast a vote for the Idiot from Ohio.

    My Tandy Model 100 had a built in blazing fast 300 baud modem.

    I brought it to meetings and used it to take notes. The Congress-critter I worked for gave me evil looks. He said it distracted everyone from what was being discussed.

    It worked for 20 hours on 4 AA batteries and had a 8 line by 40 character monochrome LCD display.

    Cost me right around $1000. Sold it 2 years later for $600. The guy tried to return it a week after he bought it because some of the keys stopped working. Worked fine when I sold it, so I told him sorry, I’m not Sears...

    People who worship another person are sick. I’m willing to discuss the pro and cons of each candidate. Both Trump and Cruz have pros and cons. I am most unwilling to act like some unreasoning, besotted, drooling, freak, worshiping Hitler at a NAZI party rally.

    Mega dittos.

    I prefer Cruz. Trump is more interesting, but interesting like a super-hot, crazy girlfriend.

    Even on Celebrity Apprentice there were times where, when The Donald gave his opinion, I would go "Where the hell did THAT come from?!" His campaign has been like that. Mostly okay, but with the occasional WTF?

    Anyway, I would still vote for either.
