..and she exuberantly posted about her excitement on ordering a squatty potty. You wouldn't do that
In my health and wellness thread I tried a stool a little lower than a squatty potty and found the effect to be quite alright.  You should check out the squatty potty You Tubes.

If your mouse took my meds maybe he would have more staying power!

My job was to carry trays of food up and down stairs.  One day, it was unexpectedly busy.  After five hours, I still could not take a break without getting in trouble.  I should have thought of hiding in the basement bathroom for a break before my situation was so dire.  Anyhow, things got dire so I hid in the basement bathroom for ten minutes and layed down on the yucky floor and put my feet up on the wall.

He's lucky he's not completely bald after all this time.  After the lady next door wouldn't let her graddaughter play with the dirty old wolf, I shampooed him with Woolite carpet & upholstery cleaner.

He was semi-retired & getting moldy (I supposed) in the toy chest until our friend David Lindelof trotted out the role-playing Steve Jackson game Toon for us to play at Cedar Tavern's roof garden.  I rolled up a wolf character based on him (loosely) and the following week brought him for "color".  Friends took such a liking to him that David wound up getting me a Wolfgang hand puppet.  (Strangely, after decades of absence at my cousin's, his double recently returned courtesy of a friend -- long story -- and a Wolfgang is now posing with Wolfie something like your 2 cats.)  So Wolfie started getting crashing our parties, but was well received there.  Then one day, probably because of those years in the toy chest having altered his balance, he pitched over on his snout in front of Nadine, who deduced that he had a drinking problem.  Since then he's been known as a heavy drinker.  But don't give him food, he's stuffed.
Well I'm glad a friend showed up for him!  Hopefully to keep him out of too much trouble.

The underwear comment was about Romney, not Obama.
I had forgotten that.  2012 was a cataclysmic year for me.

Mormonism, Jojo. Mormonism.


I know that part. But Obama? Was it just a phrase of speech?

When the grid fails they will be way ahead of us.

Nice chorus, although a little more choreography....

If you're coughing all the time it probably wouldn't hurt to do that.
You've probably heard it all, but mucous relief pills can help.  But do keep coughing; don't give up or let it stagnate.  Some chronic coughs are post nasal in origin.  I dump Afrin out and then pour nasal saline spray into the pump.  Pump works great then.  Honey helps.  Echinechea might cure you.  Take a deep breath, hold it until it tickles but don't cough, then let out but still don't cough.  That activates your body to gently push the mucous up, about five minutes later, usually in the form of clearing the throat!  If you succumb to coughing, try again but take a lesser breath to reduce the challenge.

In my experience many women, especially younger ones, don’t know the difference between being a strong, decisive manager and being a bitch.
Sometimes.  Like, to climb up the chain some drop all their humanity, instead of just dropping the traits that they should.  Sometimes they even hold onto their irrelevant traits, but mask it.

I don't blame women, I am one.  And there are lots of good women managers.

One of the things that I dislike the most is when women use their inner "compensator" to achieve their goals, by spending their personal money on work resources, doing tasks at work that others should be doing but aren't, and staying late or otherwise working without pay.  Of course a woman will be bitchy is her whole day is spend doing for others what they should be doing, when she knows she will be up late doing her own work afterward.

I don't work in management.  And every hour I work is paid and on the schedule.

I thought you were seeking a solution to your employment problem, and so I suggested that you focus on being open to all opportunity, whoever presents it, instead of being distracted by gender. That's all it was
Normally I do.  But I'm on my third gig in woman-dominant businesses (two out of the three are women owned), and very overwhelmed by the sheer unprofessionalism.  Two of the businesses had no males employees at all, and this one has no men on the front end!  And the employer before this one was also female dominant.  Awful watching women lead their male supervisor around by the nose.

The second time it took the fear of Mormon secret underwear or he would never have been elected to a second term.

The first time it took a totally corrupt mainstream media that refused to vett him or refused to publish anything that would not have been flattering. He had absolutely no record to run on. If Clinton wasn’t such a flawed candidate he never would have been nominated.
I have no idea what this underwear topic is.
During the election count, I was at work.  All of us waited on pins and needles until Obama won.  We believe he won because we voted for him and our electorate honored our wishes

And people wonder why the Ds lost the House, the Senate, 13 governorships, nearly 1000 state legislative seats, and the presidency during the divisive Obama regime.  Go figure.
According to http://history.house.gov/Institution/Party-Divisions/Party-Divisions/ the Dems only had the House twice since 1995, so... Nothing major changed due to Obama.

According to https://www.politico.com/story/2014/11/democrats-lose-2014-midterms-112581the loss of the Senate was complex.  The article also says Obama did everything Dems asked.

Partisanship concerns are not very idealistic.

Here is a run down of many of Obama's accomplishments from https://washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/januaryfebruary-2017/obamas-top-50-accomplishments-revisited/  He is the only two-term president who was not plagued by personal scandalous immorality.
-He gave millions of Americans health care.
-He doubled the vegetables in school meals.
-He got whole grains into school meals and simple carbs out.
-He ensured overtime pay for managers!
-He eliminated Osama bin Laden.
And much more.

Obama made a difference in African American lives just by being president.  For instance, all of the sudden, there was a need for way more African American models than usual.  Soon there will be a new African American on one of our coins.

Obama was faithful to his wife.

Obama is nothing, if not slick and polished - including ''timing''.  In fact he has no other qualities, skills, or accomplishments.  He had no issues at all with Rev. Rot, his comments, or his timing. 

Until they were brought to the attention of the American people.  Turns out that is what was inconvenient some how - not the comments or the ''timing'', but what they revealed about Berock Obama.  Not sure when the timing for his exposure would have been better received though.
Seems like it would take a few skills to win TWICE.

14
And just so you know, everything he said in those comments regarding the US is either a complete lie, or extremely distorted.  As far as any incidents he or you brought up, that wasn't ''America'' doing them, it was specific individuals.  Some who happened to be in office.  America isn't the government, it isn't the corporations, nor is it any individual or group of individuals.

Any more than a bunch of inner city gang members committing some vile crime, or some fat lazy ''Obama phone'' piece of shit collecting welfare, is ''America''.  So God Damn Rev. Rot, and God Damn Barack Obama for distorting our history, and misdirecting blame for personal and political gain.
The things I read were not new to me.  In their context, I found them straight forward.

We are all America (North America minus Canada and Greenland).

The things he says were shouted all through the sixties.  The factual things he says are no less true today than during the Civil Rights movement.  His attitude may not be as current as many people would like, but think of what he has lived through. 

Obama succeeded in making financial reparations to Native Americans for treaties we broke, as well as to southern farmers who were descendents of slaves.  In doing such, he shortened the line of citizens waiting for federal restitution.  Which indirectly helps shorten the line for Targeted Individuals of covert illegal programs who may later seek reparations after the cat is out of the bag, when the technologies tested on their backs, which no one believed, become mainstream and popular.  I can't think of many higher accomplishments than working for justice like that.

Like I said, his timing isn't the best.

Yeah but not devout.  We said our prayers before meals and other times and we went to Baptist (CA), Presbyterian (PA) and Methodist (GA)churches when I was in grade school but we sort of stopped going when my brother was getting into trouble.  He was open-minded as pretty much all of us in the family were.  I have my beliefs in reincarnation and problems with the concept of Hell but other than that I'm fairly traditional yet open.
Many Christians have Biblical support for Hell as a punishment then the human soul is destroyed, not tormented forever.  Even Satan after 1000 years could repent?

That's what I'm saying! You have an astute eye for the absurd. You should develop it. Seriously. ;)

A lot of great writers are just good at documenting such anecdotes and then connecting them in their imiagination somehow:

In a 1977 conversation with The Paris Review, Vonnegut admitted to swiping a few traits directly from the real Langmuir for his novel. “Langmuir was wonderfully absentminded,” Vonnegut said. “He wondered out loud one time whether, when turtles pulled in their heads, their spines buckled or contracted. I put that in the book. One time he left a tip under his plate after his wife served him breakfast at home. I put that in.”
That's hilarious.  Usually I follow the Noory but this week it was the work force.

I gave it all away.  A white elephant for MV.

hoping the best for you but why not just take the best opportunity and drop the whole men vs. women thing? it seems to be your favorite paradigm but perhaps its a bit of a hindrance. if I'm sticking my nose in where it isn't needed then please accept my apology
I honestly think this has been my only rant against women.

Oh.  So when is ''God damn America'' opportune?  Or the rest of his ignorant hate spewing?  Read through some of the quotes linked, and tell me they all have merit.

He's a liar.  He's a racist.  He poisons people's minds, and plays to their worst instincts.  He's an anti-Semite.  He's a hate monger, masquerading as a minister.  He hates this country.  He's a piece of shit.  And frankly, so is anyone who sat in that church and listened to it for more than a few minutes.  And that includes the individuals discussed upthread - you know, the ones who also count Farrakhan, among others equally putrid, as friends.

Remember, Obama never intended to be a serious candidate for president (he knew he didn't have the Constitutional qualifications, but that's another story).  His ultimate goal was mayor of Chicago, and having run in the presidential primaries even as a minor candidate would look good on his resume.  He had the good luck of serious candidates passing on running, thinking Hilary had it wrapped up.  Turned out she was just as much the loser in 2008 as she was in 2016.  Anyway, in Chicago having friends like Rev Rot, Farrakhan, Bill Ayers, etc are not negatives for mayoral candidates and Obama felt free to have and display these filthy, disgusting ''friends''.

Cursing at America is opportune on the heels of Tuskegee, in the factories of American sweat shops in China, at the deaths of International women's and children's  as collateral damage, on hearts of targeted individuals in heinous covert programs, after Matthew Shepard, and during the civil Rights movement.

PB, of the quotes in the link you proved, which I read, which one in it's context could you possibly disagree with?  In context.

I don't believe someone on public assistance should own a pet, either. Much less 13. Pet ownership (and especially that of cats) is a financial commitment.

Really this is all just common-sense stuff. The man is a fool.
Yeah, I was shocked to learn today someone got approved for public housing when they have two alleged service animals, one of whom is large, and yet neither are spayed or neutered!  An animal in heat as a service dog??? In public housing!

Did you watch the made for TV Shirley McClaine movie back that? I bet you did! I did too. I'm not ashamed to admit it. It was pretty good. :)
I couldn't believe George cancelled her over a simple coughing fit, instead of letting Tom handle it.  Or even reschedule her the same week. M Or even reschedule her at all! Do you think he delighted in her hardship?

Shut your brain down. It's not working properly.
My brain works fine.  Generalities, categoricals, don't you have a wife you can pick on?!  Look, I admit I attached a different video to my post, but who hasn't attached to the wrong post before.  You know the subject matter well enough to know what I meant.

What are you talking about?  On average - circa 2018 - I'd say black Americans are more racist and hateful towards whites and others than whites and others are towards them.  What, a black person can't be racist?  To say that is in itself racist.

As far as that church, under Rev. Rot, it was a Black Liberation Theology church.  Which is some evil concoction of Marxism, racism, and supposedly Christianity.  Black Liberation Theology, look it up.  Or just substitute the word ''white'' for ''black''.  That ''pastor'' is on record as spewing all sorts of hate for whites, and for this country.  Go find him and his garbage on YouTube.  And when you do, understand Berock and Michelle Obama had no problem with him, said he was a mentor before throwing him under the bus during their campaign, and sat there listening to it for 20 years.
I find the Minister's complaints to have merit, although their timing is not very opportune.  He's not saying anything that wasn't decried in decades past.

Dr. MD MD wore me out.  Let's not! Please!
