Re: So long, and thanks for all the fish

I would say “wish me luck,” but luck has noting to do with it.

Re: Obama's lesson to the Party.

I'll play devil's advocate here. There is strategy called "quality of life policing" based on the premise that aggressive policing of minor infractions reduces the rate of more serious crime. Some have attributed the decline in [more]

Re: OT - What age to take Social Security?

Taking distributions from traditional accounts adds to income. It can change the taxation on benefits from 0% taxable to 85% taxable.

To be clear, this doesn't mean you lose 85%. It means up TO 85% (and probably less) of your [more]

Re: Al was right

Of course. But making it mandatory is an added motivation to improve one's education and thereby improve one's potential productivity.

Re: This is the best the Democrats have ever bee

Re: DEMs must make room for 'Uneducated Whites&#

Does the Democratic Party—open to all immigrants, races, genders, and sexual orientations—have enough room for less educated white voters?

The Democratic Party is a strong supporter of unions, union rights, and union organizing. [more]

Re: General Contractor Markup: pre or post tax?

I didn't go that route because I wanted to be fair and not try to cut him out

Re: Short bathtub: replace or not?

The only reason I see to do it is, as IP says, if you are having other work done and the additional disruption won't matter.

If you are doing for resale, someday, ever, on the chance that a buyer won't like it, maybe, possibly, then [more]

Would you mind sharing what the gray wall paint color was? We're getting ready to paint the newly purchased house and I'm very much leaning toward a "greige."

Re: retiring early...medical

I'm hoping for a Home Care Robot when the time comes. If not, I'd take euthanasia over a 'senior living' facility.

Perfectly. I love the "hook" idea, my only concern is that all that weight will be pulling on the sill. The way they work now some of the weight rests on the sill, some of it is cantilevered [more]

Re: Poll says ban posts on US politics

When political posts are ignored eventually the poster finds he/she is posting to himself.

Show me once - in all of Fooldom history - where that has ever happened.

And if you cannot, please rethink your premise.

I have heard that the WPA sometimes hired a group of men to dig a hole, then a second group to cover it up.
