    They have something against anyone who isn't a Trump supporter and women in particular. Why I have curtailed my posting on these threads to a minimum. I've decided it's not worth raising my blood pressure for a gaggle of misogynistic right wing climate deniers.

    ^^I see you were in at “Trump World” at 2.29am and 3.32am today, and ”Dem Land” at 4.00am and 4.15 am. Don’t leave much time for sleep. Is Trump keeping you up?

    I've shopped SA purchasing the best things possible, including designer labels, business and casual. You need not look bad if you shop carefully (wash, iron or dry clean the items purchased).

    No one would know where I purchased the items.

    It helps to have an eye for brand, style and fabric. I prefer Value World.

Maybe she will let them regulate themselves too; a closet establishment figure whom they can live with like Obama.

    Tulsi Gabbard's de-lousing the primary field of Kamala Harris also freed up a lot of California voters looking for a new Democratic establishment candidate.

    I'm on record has guessing that Warren will be the Democratic candidate. Joe is coming off as a dolt, Bernie is very old, some of the others are preaching weird lifestyles and fantasy economics without numbers. Tulsi Gabbard is a threat to the military industrial complex and might be considered too incorruptible. That leaves Warren who talks a pretty good line acceptable to the far left while having provided placebo solutions like her CFPB tolerated by the Biden wing. Warren would, more than any other Democratic candidate, unite both wings of the Democratic Party.

    Could be any number of things causing this. Read this article for some help
    High CPU usage when browsing the internet is nothing strange in the current state of online multimedia presentation. All mainstream browsers are quite demanding, and if you have a lackluster configuration, there’s a good chance that CPU will hit the sky-high levels. Nonetheless, sometimes the core of the problem isn’t your overwhelmed CPU or underperforming GPU, but rather internal issues that are more browser-related.

    Aren't you an obnoxious shit. Stalk much? I work in a hospital emergency dept. My hours are long, erratic, and intense. When I go home after 12 pressure filled hours spent running on adrenaline, I need to unwind before falling asleep.

    Hah! When it gets too nuts (smile) I go over to the Detroit side and look at architecture in the Detroit's Wealth Of Architectural Talent! thread. Relaxing. Beautiful homes and buildings.

    I have a beautiful mahogany dresser and chest of drawers I bought from the Sal for $100 a piece. The dresser's mirror is large, and trimmed with rosewood inlay. The interior of the drawers are solid mahogany, rather than a cheaper wood or particle board and the corners are dovetailed. I could never find their equal at a furniture store.

    I've also purchased a lot of vintage Pyrex, a couple of Coach bags, a nice North Face coat and a great Lazy Boy sofa from the Sal.

    My boss is a world class thrift store shopper; she finds the most beautiful things that have never been worn with tags still on for absolute steals. She bought me a Michael Kors handbag for my birthday that I swear no one ever even unzipped. I don't have her skills but I wish I did

    Interesting way to unwind,get involved in a political discussion.

    What are your views towards religion?

    Spoken like someone who has never spent much time in an emergency department in Detroit on a weekend night.


    What are your views towards religion?
    My views are in line with Galileo's:

    I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

    Have you ever spent time in a shit hole country watching doctors patching up women and children that were hacked up with machetes because of thier religious beliefs on the dirt floor of a hut?

    You can bet that it makes time in an emergency department on a weekend anywhere in this country a walk in the park.

    Interesting how life works,this country complains about a tweet while 5000 miles away thousands of families will not make it through the night alive,in other countries a parent would not think twice about strapping a bomb to thier child and sending them into a crowd.

    We are fortunate to be born for what ever reason in a country such as this and it really has little meaning.

    Its nothing new,the way people are

    The 303 fighter squadron was made up of Polish pilots that escaped to England when Germany invaded Poland.

    They represented 20% of the English fighting airwing but were responsible for the highest number of kills,no other squadron could beat their record.

    They played a major role in saving England during the British air war against Germany,had they lost Germany would have invaded England.

    The war ended and 53% of the British population voted in favor of sending them back to Poland,which was under soviet control.

    They were given 3 days to leave the country.

    When they returned to Poland the Russians rounded them up and shot them dead.Seems like they had no room for Catholics and Jews.

    You honestly believe that sense and reason exists in this world? Or even matters to most?

    In a lot of countries they are the most devoted religious people that you could ever want to meet,it is debatable about motive though because it is the only thing they have in life and god left there a long time ago.

    What about the millions of Koreans, Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians whose countries were bombed, and defoliated regardless of their political or religious beliefs? How much misery has the United States Government visited on people since the second world war, and it still goes on...

    If you start mixing the Dog bless into it, it becomes just that more palatable, eh?

    If not, what does it have to do with her relaxing by reading DetYes as a way of unwinding after her shift?

    Bernie is very old,
    That doesn't seem to bother the crowds of screaming people at all his events. Warren might be more acceptable to the party elites and they might try to shove her in with dirty tricks like they did with Clinton. She does not have Bernie's popularity right now and I don't think she will.

    I included her quote in the reply,context.

    Lots of People have stressful jobs,I would not have to spend time in all of those just as I would not have to spend a night at an emergency room in Detroit in order to comprehend that.

    Bit that is why we are where we are at,people take a few words out of context and morphin them into something they are not.

    It seems like it will be down to Biden,Warren and Sanders and how far left the DNC wants to identify the party as.

    Both sides talk about crowd size but the last election was won by the silent majority.
