Torture Works

Started this discussion. Last reply by Unseen 10 hours ago. 12 Replies

Now that I have your attention, let me say "Okay, it CAN work."I'm not arguing here that torture always works or that it should be the first resort. That in some cases it is reprehensible is beyond…Continue

Steve Jobs surprised the world regularly with things we didn't know we needed until we saw them, and which since have pervaded not just our daily lives but our consciousness. Even when it's not an…Continue

Famous last words. No...really!

I found a website where Texas lists every capital execution from 1982 on. One of the more interesting things about it is that it includes any last statements the prisoners made. Interesting reading. Lots of "foxhole converts" among them, I note.

OBAMACARE Is Better Than You Think

Posted on September 24, 2013 at 11:40am 1 Comment

In just one week the main part of Obamacare will begin to kick in. This is the state level exchanges that will allow the uninsured to be covered. Beginning on October 1, people will be able to sign up to get insurance in their state regardless of their health.

Here's another reason why I love Amazon

Posted on July 31, 2013 at 4:30pm 3 Comments

I mistakenly ordered a wireless mouse thinking it was a Blue Tooth mouse. I decided to return it, thinking I'd get a shipping label and instructions. Instead, they said to just keep it and they'd credit my card. 

I do a LOT of my shopping with Amazon and this is just one more reason why. Amazon rocks!

Hi, just wanted to say I've been one of those people who have been "lurking" in the background for the last couple of months. Your comments and those of the other prominent posters make me feel like I have found a place for clear thinking. Thanks for your posts, even the snarky ones. Cheers!
