He is a poor leader and your standards must be extremely low to want him to be president for another four years!

If my standards went any lower, I'd be voting for Biden for sure!

I think they should just return the land back to Maryland and Virginia and get rid of DC altogether. :-\

Yeah it was a real mess trying to click through simple forum threads. Each new click through the pipeline required me to approve my progress before moving on.

Off-Topic / Paper Towels

Why is it so difficult to find regular sized paper towels at the store? Every single multi-pack of every single brand nowadays always seems to be the select-a-size paper towels. I hate those! Just give me my standard, one size, square sheet paper towels.

Obamacare has been an abject failure from its inception, but trying to get that point across to those who have been brainwashed to hate orange man is like trying to teach a 6 month old baby to perform open heart surgery. Can't do it, so why bother trying?

If we're going to be technical about it, it's not murder if its legal.

I'm sorry, but I need this one explained to me a little bit further.  :confused1:
Nail-biting,what some do when..............

If U still dont understand,may i suggest a chill pill.

No chill pills needed and I don't think they will help me with my comprehension anyway. No - I just didn't get that nail biting was the connection to someone needing but being unable to pay for a manicure. Now that you added the nail biting reference, I completely understand the remark.

I am not being smart or trying to criticize here, just stating things from my own perspective: a lot of times, I just don't get the references or comments that you make without an explanation. Take for instance, some of the scriptural things = without the context of what or how you are thinking, the references are not always perfectly crystal clear.  Again - NOT criticizing, just trying to explain my own inability to often understand what you are saying.

I then have to decide whether or not to ask for clarification. I know we've had differences of opinion on some religious topics, but sometimes I am just sincerely asking what you mean.

Well, you've been on FC for about three years it appears, so your WISH is granted!    ;)

And who even knows if Mrs. Butterworth is black or white or something else? She's no color, or potentially any color depending on the contents inside. Does Mrs. Butterworth make other flavors?

When we were younger (and when Mrs. Butterworth's came in glass bottles) we used to rinse and save the bottles and then paint them as art/decoration projects. It wasn't a race thing, but I always just naturally painted my bottles as an old white grandma figure. In my mind she was the grandma cartoon character from Looney Toons who had Tweety Bird and Sylvester as pets.

An umbrella and fire pit.

Not sure I would want a fire pit on a deck, especially if it is a wooden deck. Maybe on a concrete patio or further out in the yard if that is possible, but it seems to me that would be dangerous to have one on a deck itself.

As long as the pancakes and rice still prepare and taste the same and remain available in my grocery store, I don't give two sh!ts about what they call it or whose fictional face is on the label. Changing the names and faces isn't going to change the reality OR the perception of current race relations, but if some people think it is going to help - I say let them have at it. I fear we will eventually come to the realization that we cannot erase every single instance of inequality or prejudice in our society merely by changing the labels and products, statues, flags, city and school names, etc. that some people (in many cases quite legitimately) find offensive.

Changing labels, is literally just that ... changing a label. Changing hearts (on BOTH sides of the issues) is a much bigger mountain to climb. By picking and choosing what names/labels/products are offensive, we are creating a slippery slope on the climbing side of that mountain.

Off-Topic / Re: Feeding the Birds

We had a huge sack of bird seed inside a wheelbarrow in the corner of our garage. When I recently got over to it (much other winter junk/clutter ended up blocking it off) the wheelbarrow was covered in mouse poop and the basin was filled up with empty seed shells! I'll give the critters credit - it was my mistake to not transfer the seed into a more secure storage container. I have a few empty plastic cat litter tubs in the basement. I think any future seed we buy will immediately get portioned into those.

We had a Ruby Tuesday at the local mall, but it closed several years ago. I seem to recall that the company as a whole was in financial trouble at that time and they were closing quite a few locations. I always loved their salad bar - which probably wouldn't have survived the COVID pandemic anyway. Congrats to those of you who still have one open in your area!
