Politics of the Purse String
Author: BobR    Date: 09/28/2016 13:53:11

It's that time of year again, when lawmakers have spent the summer doing nothing (seriously - they were off for seven straight weeks!! over the summer) and come back to find that - oops - we are once again about to run out of money. So - once again - they are grudgingly opening the purse strings to fund the government for the next two months. Yes, they've spent the month of September arguing about funding the government for 2 months - when they'll have to do it all over again in November. Why not allocate spending for an entire year? Maybe because the elections are just over a month away?

Presidential Debatable: 2016; Part One.
Author: Raine    Date: 09/27/2016 00:51:28

Four years ago, it was Obama and Mitt. Thier first debate together was less than spectacular -- BUT it's a much different landscape now than it was 4 years ago.

Four years ago, Mitt was praising that trees were just the right height. He spoke of the 47%. He declared he had binders full of women.

He mocked Obama with a silly meme: 'You built this'

Tonite we have the former Secretary of State, Former Senator from New York (The Empire State, by the way-- yes I have a bias -- I got to vote for her) and Former First Lady of the United States of America, Hillary Rodham Clinton who will debate Donald John Trump. businessman.

He wants to make America great again. (It's not America: It is the United States of America)

I'm gonna pull out my patriot flag. We have have been great, we have always wanted to be better.

Please jump in and make your comments known.

Welcome to all our Turnips! friends!



God Damnit!

Another type of debate.
Author: Raine    Date: 09/26/2016 13:05:06

While everyone is buzzing about tonite's debate, there is one that is getting little notice. That's right - Congress can't do its job and we are facing yet another Government shutdown.

Time to Take Another Knee
Author: BobR    Date: 09/21/2016 13:28:34

There has been a lot of uproar recently over San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem. It has sparked copycats and outrage. His motivation for protest is that the national anthem and our country has not lived by the creed that "all men are created equal", and the recent plethora of videos show how innocent black men are being murdered by police, while dangerous white men get taken alive.

Good Morning.

Veering a little off-track to start this morning. Here's something we almost never think about - US Navy ship names.

We're probably familiar with a few of the more famous ones - Enterprise, Nimitz, Constitution...and the infamous - Pueblo, Forrestal, Indianapolis.

Sometimes it seems random, but there's a general pattern for most of these things. Our "Supercarriers" have generally been named after presidents. Submarines are named after Cities or States...and a whole host of lesser vessels are named after all kinds of people, places, and things.
