Another Unintended Consequence

Well DUH:

San Francisco's big push for low-flow toilets has turned into a multimillion-dollar plumbing stink.

Skimping on toilet water has resulted in more sludge backing up inside the sewer pipes, said Tyrone Jue, spokesman for the city Public Utilities Commission.

Any competent plumber knows - and understands why - sewer lines are built to exacting specifications.

For example: Sewer lines underneath and exiting from from homes are built to a specific diameter and slope. These two criteria are determined by the predicted amount of solid waste injected into the sewer pipes and the amount of water that will be used to flush it away.

The diameter of a residential sewer pipe is determined by the expected load it is to carry, and the downward slope of the sewer pipe is designed to be such that the flushing water will evacuate the pipe. It's not a haphazard thing, you cannot just dig a ditch and just toss in the pipe. A system built that way will have endless problems.

Change either the amount of solid waste or water and the pipe no longer can function as designed. Put less water into the system and guess what? The pipe plugs up.

Most citizens have no clue about any of this. That includes the politicians that passed the laws requiring water-saving toilets. Ignorant politicians that have no clue whatever about the design requirements for a properly working sewer system inject their ignorant views into someplace they have no business being, and things like this are the inevitable result.

The fix? You can do what San Fransisco has been doing... Spend hundreds of millions redesigning and rebuilding their sewer system, tearing up streets and yards in the process, OR... You can just go back to toilets designed to provide sufficient flow the flush out the system.

Homeowners will find out - even after the city spends all those hundreds of millions - That they will have to hire plumbers to excavate under their homes and replace their own sewer pipes which have been installed at the wrong slope angle for water-saving toilets. The proper slope angle starts not at the street or their foundation, but at the base of each toilet.

Toilet manufacturers knew/know all this, but the idea of a law requiring new water-saving toilets be installed everywhere insured they would never educate the politicians and miss out on an opportunity to billions in additional sales.

And wouldn't you know it... almost everybody has to double flush nowadays... just to get the stuff get flushed down.

And of course the irony of it all is that these new toilets save no water whatever, what with all that double flushing.

Politicians = stupid.
Manufacturers = greedy
Citizens = ignorant

A great formula for waste and fraud.

So Long, Texas

In more ways than one:

Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: "It's basically over for Anglos."

Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo
and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.

Murdock is not just mouthing off with his private opinions, he is using real numbers and real facts on which to base his projections.

Quit calling me an "Anglo", Murdock, that's a Mexican term. I'm white.

As a small minority of greedy, grubby but influential Texas businessmen continue to support and use illegal labor to improve their profits, so will this Mexican invasion continue to grow.

Won't be too long now when "Texas" Mexicans will demand that the Alamo be razed to the ground because it's an insult to their heritage.

Montana keeps looking better and better.

Sorta handy that I learned Spanish(Mexican variety) when we lived in Santa Fe... Before the Mexicans forced us out over what language to speak in the public schools. Go see "How I Built Our First Home", for an amusing story full of irony.

Mom Of The Year

Hard to comprehend:

A woman accused of locking her young son in the attic of her De Soto home will stand trial on charges of child abuse and attempted second-degree murder. Johnson County District Judge Peter Ruddick ordered Rachel Perez, 27, to stand trial on a third charge, aggravated child endangerment.

Perez was charged last August after Johnson County sheriff’s deputies discovered her then 6-year-old son confined to the attic. Prosecutors said the 20-pound boy, who has Down syndrome, was severely malnourished and covered in fecal matter.

This feral beast also had two other children whom she apparently treated a bit better. At least they were not locked in the attic and were fed occasionally.

What do we do with people like this? Putting them away for life at a typical cost of around $100,000 a year is not a solution.

Since Ms. Perez apparently attached no value to her sons life, perhaps we should do the same to her.

She is going to die eventually - we all will - let's just help her along with the process, and then give her children the opportunity to find good homes with caring parents.

They deserve no less.

Our Constitution guarantees us all "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". This woman deprived her son of liberty and any kind of happiness, and according to the doctors who examined the boy, was twenty-fours hours away from depriving him of life.

Sick, sick, sick.

It's Shale Oil time - Again

As the price of oil skyrockets, it's time - once again - for America to reconsider it's oil shale reserves.

What is shale oil? A complete description is here, but a quick explanation is that it is oil locked in a fine-grained sedimentary rock and can be recovered at the cost of around $40/$50 per barrel.

Now much of it does the United States have? Where is it all? How about 5 to 10 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia? There is an estimated 2 trillion barrels of oil buried beneath parts of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.

Geologists, petroleum companies and the federal government have known about these massive deposits for nearly a century.

Global technically-recoverable oil shale reserves have recently been estimated at about 2.8-3.3 trillion barrels of shale oil, with the largest reserves in the United States, which is thought to have 1.5-2.6 trillion barrels.

Is anyone presently recovering oil from shale?

Worldwide production of shale oil was estimated at 11,600 barrels per day (1,840 m3/d) in 2002. The leading producers were:

Estonia 5,500 barrels per day
Brazil 3,100 barrels per day
China 2,000 barrels per day

So it's do-able. We need to do it.

With oil - once again - having passed $100/barrel, it is insane for Americans to be sending those billions of oil dollars overseas to oil-producing places that hate us, when we could be supplying ourselves with our own oil at $40/$50 a barrel, and providing thousands of good paying, long-term jobs in the process.

What's stopping this is the government and the greens. At this very moment, Obama is preventing any and all drilling anywhere under American control. True, Obama recently lifted his ban on drilling, but his man Cass Sunstein, the Regulatory Czar, has refused (by order of the president) to issue any permits, meaning that Obama still will not allow any new exploration or development. Obama gets to look like he's on our side -When he is actually giving us all the shaft.

The greens don't want any of that empty and unpopulated wasteland disturbed in any way. To hell with them. This Nation runs on oil, we have plenty of it.

It's time we demanded that the government allow the nation to develop and use this resource. It's time for the government to get the hell out of the way and let us take care of our energy crisis ourselves.

Nyah, Nyah... Told You So

The latest on Lara Logan's "sexual assault":

Logan received the brunt of the unfettered aggression as she was pulled away from the rest of her team and security detail. According to the Times of London, a large group of men viciously tore at the 39-year-old’s clothes, punched her and beat her with flag poles for up to 30 minutes, leaving her body covered in red welts and bruises.

A nasty beatdown, but no sexual assault, no rape.

Women like her keep calling anything and everything they don't like a "sexual assault" and pretty soon the phrase will mean absolutely zip, zero, nada.

Sorta like "anti-Semite" or "Racist". Call me one all day, I'll just yawn and doze off.

4 Dead Americans

Four Americans taken hostage by Somali pirates off East Africa were shot and killed by their captors Monday, the U.S. military said, marking the first time U.S. citizens have been killed in a wave of pirate attacks plaguing the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean for years.
U.S. naval forces, who were trailing the Americans' captured yacht with four warships, quickly boarded the vessel after hearing the gunfire and tried to provide lifesaving care to the Americans, but they died of their wounds, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement from Tampa, Fla.

Does the government actually expect us to believe that?

In the entire history of this piracy thing, the pirates have never killed the hostages because there were warships shadowing them. The hostages were their insurance, their safety shield, their get-out-of-jail-free card.

My money says they tried to use snipers from the deck of one of the warships (they've done this before), killed two but missed the rest. The remaining pirates then slaughtered the hostages, since they then knew the game was over.

Also chew on this:

A trillion-dollar navy and they can't save four Americans from a few 12th century aborigines. What good is it?

One other thing:

How stupid is it to go sailing a yacht into waters where pirates have been attacking ships for years? We are told they were "distributing bibles".

You bet.

They were having a great all-expense paid "around the world" sail using the churches money. THAT's what they were doing.

Horse Semen... The New Drink Rage!


Ram's testicles are so passe - this year extreme foodies wanting a real taste test will be lining up for a shot of stallion semen.

Horse semen shots, to be followed with a swig of energy drink, are the new kids on the kitchen block at the famed Hokitika Wildfoods festival next month.

Now that's not a shot like a flu shot, it's a shot glass full of horse semen. Bottoms up.

OK... I generally agree with the "live and let live" concept... But something like this is pushing my envelope a bit.

A couple of participants at the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival in 2010.

I can just see it now...

"Hey baby, here's your horse semen shot. Now give us a big, sloppy kiss.

The government tells us that our soldiers are fighting and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan so Americans can stay free... To do stuff like swigging down horse semen.

You bet.

And The Tree Came Tumbling Down..

The National Christmas Tree snapped at its base during high winds Saturday morning in Washington.

Sustained winds at 25 miles per hour and wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour swept through the area and snapped the tree 4 feet above the ground.


I lived in Colorado Springs for several years and we had front range winds in excess of 100mph regularly, and those Colorado blue Spruces had no problem standing up against 50mph. Bah... small potatoes.

If I wasn't an agnostic for the most part, I could be tempted to look at this as a sign that maybe Mr. "Muslim for life"
Obama has been sent a message about claiming to be a Christian and doing Christian stuff, like lighting up the national tree at Christmas time.

No tree, no heresy.

Or something like that.

Never realized that someone had snuck (sneaked?) into our kitchen and caught our cat "Shadow" doing her Scarlett O'hara thing.

Another Simpleton Speaks Out

Lordy lordy...

Now, Chris Rock regales us with his wisdom:

In the March issue of Esquire, comedian Chris Rock takes a swing at the tea party.

Kids always act up the most before they go to sleep. And when I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism’s almost over. Because this is the last—this is the act up before the sleep. They’re going crazy. They’re insane. You want to get rid of them—and the next thing you know, they’re f—-ing knocked out. And that’s what’s going on in the country right now.

Somebody should introduce him to that Dallas City Councilor, John Wiley Price, the "You're all white! Go to hell!" Jerk for an update on racism in America.

I got a news flash for Mr. Rock... If you're some black dude that calls millions of white people you don't like crazy and insane, and try to paint them all as racists, well, it's probably not the best method to ease racial tensions.

The very fact that this dude, who will never, ever be accused of critical thinking, can publicly call a bunch of whites crazy and insane is a testament on how far white America has progressed in leaving racism behind. It wasn't that long ago that his remarks would have got him hung from a tree limb, not published in Esquire.

You gotta admit that the whites in America have made fantastic progress in reducing racial prejudice, at least on their part. But It seems like what we're getting for all that time, money and effort is a huge part of the black community that now hates everything white.

So, it seems racism has just switched sides... It's still here, still strong, still stirring the pot.

That ain't progress folks. That's the poster child for the lack of it.

Color Me Dubious

They say she was "sexually assaulted".

As a Western journalist covering the resignation of then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, CBS News correspondent Lara Logan was reportedly attacked by a mob of protesters while she and her crew navigated through the crowds in Cairo on Feb. 11.

So, was she repeatedly raped, or just repeatedly manhandled and fondled? There is a huge difference between the two.

Here in America, a man can be charged with "sexual assault" if he so much a looks at a woman's breasts.

Was this gal actually raped - like most will assume - Or was she subjected to manhandling which she decided to call sexual assault?

Can't tell from the article, but it would be reasonable for us to want the real facts, particularly in a case that may carry international consequences.


Viewers of CBS reporter Lara Logan will be pleased to learn today that the sexual assault she experienced in Cairo this past week was not rape. It was, however, brutal and at least 20 minutes long.

Now, they should educate ex-swimsuit model turned journalist Lara on the difference between rape and not-rape, although based on her sordid Iraqi experiences, she definitely knows the difference, so let's not be painting her as a pure-as-snow innocent victim.


Of course we can all get along...

Tuesday’s Dallas County Commissioner’s Court meeting erupted into an argument between Commisioner John Wiley Price and a citizen, ending with Price telling him and several other citizens :“All of you are white. Go to hell.”


What is there to say, other than the man is an obvious racist? And in a position to do great damage because of his racist views?

In case you haven't figured it out:

Yes, he is black.

Is this the result of years and years of supposed integration in America? that we now must tolerate a black version of the KKK?

The KKK (Klu Klux Klan) consisted of white members who hated blacks, were openly outspoken against them, burned crosses on their lawns and eventually started hanging them.

Well. John Wiley Price is just about to the "cross burning stage".

Which makes me think it's time to toss him out of office. He is tossing gasoline on a fire that is still smoldering.

We just don't need that.

Go Ahead... Wave That Red Flag


A new blog "BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN" throws down the gauntlet:

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Note that the blog author is anonymous. A smart move if he lives anywhere in the U.S.

Can't Trust Any Of Them

They gotta be kidding:

The patient screamed and writhed in agony during surgery at a Minneapolis hospital. Nurse Sarah May Casareto allegedly told him to go to his "happy place" and to "man up" because she couldn't give him more medication.

She couldn't give him anymore because of the 500 micrograms of fentanyl reserved for his surgery, she had used 350 micrograms on herself.

What the hell was the doctor with the scalpel thinking? A patient screaming in agony and an anesthesiologist in la-la land?

Seems if you have to be hospitalized nowadays, it would be a good idea to introduce your lawyer to your doctor up front, before anybody starts slicing up your insides.

I learned of the true callousness and indifference of doctors years ago while employed at a major research hospital. As soon as a patient died, they became nothing more than another "stiff".

Note to self:

Stay the hell away from any Minneapolis hospital. Better yet, don't get sick, most of today's doctors and nurses are from the same mold.

Don't Talk... Just Listen

Sit down and shut up:

On Tuesday, the office of First Lady Michelle Obama
sponsored several conference calls
featuring administration officials discussing Mrs. Obama's “Let’s Move!” campaign to combat childhood obesity but “with listen-only lines for the media,” according to The Washington Daybook. On Wednesday, Mrs. Obama personally conducted a conference call for “online media” that was “by invitation only,” according to the Daybook.

Who the hell died and put her in charge? Of anything?

Last time I looked, she hadn't been elected or legally appointed to anything by anybody. Shes not a Senator or Representative, she's not a Cabinet member, she's not the head of any Department. She's not even one of the horde of faceless bureaucrats that make our lives miserable.

She's the president's wife. As such, she can glory over the fact that for four years she doesn't have to cook or clean. What she should be doing with all her extra free time is focusing on raising her kids to be something other than spoiled and arrogant brats.(like other presidents kids were/are)

What she should not be doing is paying all this attention to OUR kids, changing school lunch menus, ordering restaurants to serve certain kinds of foods and in specific quantities. She should not be going around the nation making questionable, often seditious speeches, something she is noted for doing during her earlier years.

Yes, yes... all the lefty libs and feminists will go a-frothing at the idea that she should be what she agreed to be... a wife and mother. She will find it difficult to be a more admired and better remembered first lady than Jackie Kennedy

Now don't get me wrong here, women can be and do whatever they aspire to and achieve. But if they wish to become a national figure of power and influence, maybe they should do it using their own skills and talents, not on the backs of their husbands.

Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin did it by her own efforts. She didn't ride in on anybody's coattails. She ran for and was elected as a council member of the Wasilla, Alaska City Council. She ran for and became Mayor. She ran for Alaska's Lt. Governor in 2002 and lost. She was appointed Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission in 2003. She was the first woman elected Governor of Alaska. She was a vice-presidential candidate.

Where is the list of Michelle Obama's qualifications for her entry into the public arena?

Sarah Palin has earned her spot as an influential public figure. Michelle Obama is using the power and prestige of the White House to advance her agenda without the "trial by fire" of public scrutiny and approval.

What educational qualifications does Michelle Obama possess that gives her the credability to become an authority on any of these things? Is she a nutritionist? A Medical Docter? A physical therapist?

Or is she just another meddling busybody who thinks she knows better than any of us on how to feed ourselves and our children?

She is pushing rules and regulations that carry the force of law across the entire nation.

By what legal authority is she doing this?

So Long Kid

No lessons learned:

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that they would file criminal charges against actress Lindsay Lohan in connection with allegations she stole a necklace from a jewelry store in Venice.

The 24-year-old actress is to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon at the Airport Branch Courthouse in Los Angeles, according to Deputy District Attorney John Lynch.

Lohan is accused of walking out of Kamofie & Co., a jewelry store, with the designer necklace on January 22.

It is said she could get up to 50 years for this if the D.A. really wants to push it.

Linsay has been playing footsie with the law and the courts for some time now and pretty much has the whole out bunch of them out gunning for her.

I really liked her performance in "The Parent Trap" some years ago and have been pulling for her to shake off the drinking/drugs nightmare she's in, but this theft of a "one of a kind" necklace may be the feather that breaks the camel's back.

Too bad. At one time, she had a real future.

Well, They Didn't Say "Tarbaby"

That may have incited the bots to demand jail time also....

PITTSBURGH -- Lawsuits were filed against the Centers for Rehab Services by two employees who were fired over an e-mail comparing President Barack Obama to a tar ball washing ashore in the Gulf of Mexico.

The e-mail image showed

Obama walking along a Gulf beach with the caption, "Another tar ball washed up on the shore."

Yes! This is far worse than anything that has been e-mailed, posted, or published - EVER - regarding Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck, or that obvious lunatic Rush Limbaugh.

How can those tea party people and those conservative anti-everything people be so... so disgusting, and ignorant, and disgusting?

Sunday, February 06, 2011


I watched (for a few minutes) the wife of Dallas cowboy owner Jerry Jones on a recent TV offering about the "art" she had decorated the new Arlington Dallas Cowboy Stadium with.

She went on about how, instead of decorating the stadium with football related trivia, she decided to have the fans be exposed to museum quality art when they visited "her and Jerry's" place.

She then proceeded to show us some of this "art" that is displayed prominently in the stadium.


What we were treated to can be best described as stuff that looked like the bad wallpaper you can buy cheap at your local "end of the line" discount store, stuff that even an Asian college coed wouldn't use to decorate her dorm room with, and you know that's gotta be bad.

There's Trenton Doyle Hancock's "From A Legend To A Choir", best described as a confused and cluttered mess.

Or Matthew Richie's "Line Of Play", which looks like a nightmare multi cultured spaghetti would have.

Try Jackueline Humphries "Blondnoir", which looks like a piece of Reynolds aluminium wrap slit up evenly and then hit with a blast of air from a hair dryer.

My favorite apparent artistic rip-off is Daniel Buren's "Unexpected Variable Configurations". Not really unexpected, almost any bus station restroom has tile walls a lot like this.

Must not forget Terry Haggerty's "Two Minds", a reasonable rendition of a T.G.I.F. window shade billowing in the breeze.

Now, I'm not saying any of the above "artists" have not done quality work and deserve the title of "artist". What I am saying is that what they did for the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington looks for all the world like a slap in the face for all us flyover country hicks that can't tell art from crap.

Want proof? Look up Lawrence Weiner's "Brought Up To Speed". That should let you know the kind of treatment That Jerry and Gene Jones got at the hands of the art community. I'm no art critic, but I can recognize a giant ripoff when it's paraded in front of me.

The Taxpayers of Arlington floated a huge municipal bond to help build this place. Now I gotta wonder how much of that money went for the third-rate crap that the art community visited upon them.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

That - of course - means the Russians will be receiving information about all the Trident missiles on our submarines: Range, yield, targeting accuracy, you name it.

At some point in time we must confront the possibility that this President, Barack Hussein Obama, is not our friend. One one hand, he supports Muslims and their dreams of a worldwide caliphate under Sharia law, on the other hand he betrays the secrets of our allies.

Would this not be giving aid and comfort to one enemy and the selling out of our friends to another?

Every day brings a new and more shocking fact about the activities of this administration. And once again, it is Wikileaks that does the exposing, not any our own investigative agencies.

Really Off The Deep End

A 14-year-old girl is raped by her 40-year-0ld cousin. A fatwa is announced at a village arbitration that she must be given 100 lashes. She falls unconscious after nearly 80 lashes. She then dies in hospital.

80 freaking lashes. 14-year-old child. Rape victim.

Sharia law.

Who in their right mind would want this sort of law in the United States? Who in their right mind would support this sort of insanity?

The Bangladesh High Court yesterday ordered district officials in Shariatpur to explain why they failed to protect 14-year-old rape victim Hena from being whipped to death as per a fatwa on Monday.

What on earth did those insane village arbitrators think the girl should have done? The child was forcibly raped by a 40-year-old man. I suppose they think she should have fought him off, or talked him out of it, or otherwise somehow escaped his clutches.

I am 100% in favor of removing from our country all these Sharia lunatics that have immigrated to the United states and want to force their religion, their "law" and way of life on to us. These retards are a menace to civilization wherever they are.

Murdering a 14-year-old child because she was raped.


Totally insane.

How Things Have Changed

Texas is buying electrical power from Mexico.

What a role reversal that is.

Texas Governor Rick Perry is working hand-in-hand with power companies and Mexican authorities to provide enough electricity to Texas to stop the rolling brownouts being forced on citizens in places like the Dallas/Fort worth Megaplex.

This should we a real and true wake-up call that we need to build more electrical plants.

My son, who lives in Rockwall, Texas, stayed home yesterday and the day before. His business is located in North Dallas but the roads were sheets of ice, and it wasn't worth the risk of getting smashed up for another day's work.

Here's the point: While staying at home, he experienced six 15/30 minute electrical shutdowns. This was done by the our overloaded and overstressed electrical providers to prevent grid damage due to what would have been massive overloads. Lights out... six times, in an blizzard. Now that's scary.

Texas has some of the greatest reserves of natural gas in the world. Maybe this emergency will prod the production of a few more gas-fired electricity plants now and give the regulators enough sand to tell the greens to just shut up and go away.

We need the power, and a winter like this is more than enough proof that Al Gore and his "scientists" man made global warming is total nonsense.

Al Gore... Never Say Quit

This from Al Gore's desk:

Last week on his show Bill O’Reilly asked, “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” and then said he had a call into me. I appreciate the question.

As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming...

Yessiree... These latest huge sub-zero blizzards around the world are caused by us. Forget solar radiation, sun spots, planetary orbital variations, the long history of weather patterns just like this that the planet has experienced over and over, all that inconsequential claptrap.

Some scientists - with their recently exposed agendas - have decreed we are the culprits.

Gotta give a man credit for sticking to his guns, even if those guns are made of debunked science and dreams of untold wealth and power.

Keep in mind Al's "Carbon Credits" scheme was going to be his - and his pals - road to riches beyond avarice.

Somebody should tell Al about the practice of kicking dead horses: It's unproductive.

But I can understand his persistence... Watching one's dreams of wealth, power and fame fade away in the harsh light of reality can make a man say and do desperate things.

Al is certainly the poster boy for that.

Possible Heat Stroke?

I visited Desert Cat's blog today to take a look at the progress on his cooling towers and was presented with the following rant:

Is This What You Wanted...

...Bob Mustaine? Yes, you. I am calling you out specifically because you have been on this weblog agitating for the shootin' to start. Is this what you and your compatriots are agitating for? Do you have the faintest glimmer of a notion what kind of a BACKLASH this kind of utterly depraved, stupid, misguided MORONITUDE will trigger?!

Hmmm. I do believe he was referring to the horrific shooting of that Arizona politician recently.

So, I went back and read months and months of my posts and entries to see where I was agitating for the shooting to start. Sorry DC, nowhere can such agitating be found. The only thing I found was where I recommended for an action to be taken was when I said crooked politicians should be "tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail". That was something they did in the old days - here - in America.

No guns, no shooting.

We all have bad days. When we do, we should definitely stay away from the computer.
