Re: 2% raise for SS and fed workers

Art53,

By the way Kroger's and Ralph's must be closely affiliated somehow?

The Kroger Company owns Ralph's, King Soopers, Food 4 Less, Dillons, and many others.

Re: 2% raise for SS and fed workers

CCinOC,

Still mourning the loss of my local Grocery Outlet, the T J Maxx of food. They sold pints of Häagen-Dazs ice cream for $1.50; $4.50 elsewhere. Now I can barely bring myself to pay $3.50 for pints of Häagen-Dazs when it's [more]

Re: Too Insane To Check

If you mean "stated common myth [of inherited vs created wealth] that has been debunked by studies many times" then... well, you still fixed nothing because you're wrong. Again.

Re: Zero's credit no good

CCinOC,

Nonsense. There's no "minimum required usage" for any credit card--just more BS from the Bullsh!tter-in-Chief.

It was probably because he tried to use the card in a different state (NY) than whatever state [more]

My point is, if you put Carl Jr's Mile High Bacon Cheeseburger on a restaurant plate and a waiter served it at Zingermans, you'd pay three times as much and--except for the dubious "American" cheese, which cheese at [more]

Re: Salt in the diet

MetalDecathlete,

Then what is it about normal table salt that causes people health problems? There is something about it that is not right.

Normal non-iodized table salt doesn't cause any more, or any fewer, health [more]

Re: Salt in the diet

MetalDecathlete,

Your table salt is actually 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals such as moisture absorbents, and iodine.

False. First of all, even Morton's salt is available with or without iodine. Second the amount of [more]

Re: Oh no...deeper doo doo at the CDC

JLC,

Here is a problem with temps, like any other vital sign. It is an average for a population of people.

Furthermore, the "98.6" number is probably a mathematical conversion error anyway.

Re: Tele gets his flu shot

telegraph,

I see from my paperwork that Walmart billed Medicare $48...and will probably only get $12.......

For whatever it's worth, Sam's Club charges $14.98 for a flu shot (if you have no insurance coverage).

It could've been worse. 2828 cold-called before the advent of the federal Do Not Call list. Some people go ape-chit if you call them when they're on the Do Not Call list.

But the getting isn't good. The getting requires that we involve ourselves with the Middle East, which is very bad, as we see.

RaptorD2,

Holding down, pressing, or repeatedly pressing any key (F2, F1, F8, shift-F8, F12) doesn't change anything. ... At startup, the hard drive runs, the screen turns black.
