    Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment,.
    The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
    The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."
    The older lady said that she was right our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day. The older lady went on toexplain: Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.
    But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day. Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.
    But, too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then. We walked up stairs because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.
    Back then we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days.
    Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.
    Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana.
    In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us.
    When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.
    Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power.
    We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.
    We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.
    Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the "green thing."
    We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.
    But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?
    Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart ass young person. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off... Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smartass who can't make change without the cash register telling them how much.

  2. No party has ever pedalled a shitcycle like dems are on now!  I'm only here because I truly can't believe people defend these morons!  30 years ago this talk would of landed you in Tiffin...no shit...padded room and your own mouth guard.

    far as I can see Israel is second to afgahnistan...which we only give money too cause "you break it you fix it". Why does Israel get 3B a year from us? I don't really know why Afganistan is still getting over 5B....seriously, these fucking handouts have to fucking stop. 

    now you have identified the problem........you don’t see very far!  Maybe your too soficticated......... alt gorka

  4. All company assets should be fairly compensated!  A proper union can work with the same importance, if not more, than most of management.  Customer give two shits how smart a CEO blah blah is they care about the product and price.  You can argue that some non union companies pay just as much or maybe more but safety, discrimination and cock sucking needs representation, true representation.  HR is the biggest joke and just another title for a henchman.  

    As soon as you're born they make you feel small
    By giving you no time instead of it all
    Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
    They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
    Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
    Then they expect you to pick a career
    When you can't really function you're so full of fear
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
    And you think you're so clever and classless and free
    But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    The thing with me on unions is simply the Collective Bargaining issue.

    A fundamental part of our economy is negotiating deals. It happens daily in many industries/professions.

    So all unions really want is a chance to  go to a bargaining meeting with their employer. Republicans are against this issue. It doesn't make any sense (to me, anyway).

    I negotiated 5 contracts during my time as Union President. Just getting to the table, and talking, doesn't guarantee a damn thing (on either side). It does, however,help in understanding why an issue may or may not pass and get implemented into a contract. Without that bargaining right, management is free to dictate whatever they want, however they want. 

    If the Rs ever embrace Collective Bargaining I could vote for a few of them. Until that happens, nope.

    As a former union president I believe most of what you state.  But, I'm sure you know the heart of the union is just as greedy and corrupt as the swamp.  If you stand for the nutty dems you'll play imaginary union local 202 representing brothers & sisters in china.  Clean up the International and businesses would welcome representation!

    Well if Trump keeps them screaming "Russians" and "Leave the 4 women alone", then no one will notice Epstein's Trump connection. "Lock him up"😂



    Did you read your link?  People here spend a lot of time quoting, quoting and quoting fucked up poles, so called journalists and gold diggers.  

    Creepy porn lawyer is the only person I believe is on point......my oh my.  

  7. Racism will be the shot heard around the world and it won't be televised!  Mark it!  CNN and all fake news will be showing Trump being whipped 24/7 in a cell built with pcs of his border wall.

    When a cracker is scorned it's because they are not liked.  When a minority is scorned it's a racist act.  When you accept and believe, respectively,  it's going to burst

    Due to the Sullivan act I kept my older brother (AF Pilot) from going to Vietnam since he received orders for it while I was there and they changed them when he informed them he had a brother in Vietnam already. So the answer is still yes. And it was not that I didn't want to go. I volunteered to become an Infantry Lt. Do that and you pretty much just asked to be sent to the war. They reinforced that notion the first day in Infantry Officers Basic so we would get it through our heads the war games we were learning there in school from real Vietnam vets would some day save our lives if we paid attention to their hard earned wisdom. They were right. 

    I was 11 in 1970 and not sure it it was the mind of a child or feeling that I just didn't want to die but I found myself thinking how my father would disown me if I scrammed to the ~A~ country.  What to do....not a lot of freed minds during the war.   You are brave indeed!


    And Trump did not earn the right to say he preferred soldiers who weren't captured in reference to John McCain, as if he had any choice after being shot down in N. Vietnam. And McCain actually was disabled by that event,  unlike the bought and paid for bogus bone spurs.

    Trump was wrong for that statement but I feel he's trying and that can make up for some disagreement in venting.  He is crying for some positive media that would bring out the true American dream.....and its not always easy!




  9. Quoted from "people asked" page......You are the funny side...correct....

    He converted to Islam and became a Muslim after 1961, and eventually took the name Muhammad Ali. He won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston in a major upset at age 22 in 1964. In 1966, Ali refused to be drafted into the military, citing his religious beliefs and opposition to the Vietnam War.

    Nope. It is not. If you have paid any attention here you know I'm pretty straitforward and don't make shit up unless I identify it as made up for the fun of it. 

    And BTW I didn't have to create fake bone spurs to keep me out of that situation. I just went. Dear Leader is an armchair warrior/coward. End of story.


    With much respect for you sucking it up and going where you didn't want to for your country!!!!!!!!

    Knowing what you do now...would you go again under the same circumstances? 

    Maybe Trumps family circle new of the fucked reasoning and the no good to come from this war.   Was/is Cassius Clay even more deplorable than Trump?  He used his belief.......

    But I need to point out again with utmost respect ....you was following crazy leaders then and you're following them now.  Trumps not that dumb...shame on him?

    Point being that regardless of what came after "go back to your countries" Means nothing.  The first line itself is complete idiocy wrapped in a blanket of cliche' bullshit.   The President telling American citizens to return to countries they do not belong is a horseshit move.   

    Kinda like saying I'm an African American....do these fucks think they are from Africa, America or both?  When Trump told them to go back, he means the country THEY have associated themself with as their origin.  Fucktwisles!    Most of you left head-standing wankers need to ditch the diapers and buck up.....news flash....life can be hard and you better start rocking or ask the government to hand over your tent now!

    During a mortar attack one night I dove into a bunker where the next morning some guy killed one of these giant forest scorpions. From then on I decided to take my chances behind sandbags in a hootch. No more pits where creepy crawly things can go to live. Ironically a few days ago I got stung by one of our local 2" brown scorpions on the torso when he crawled up inside my T-shirt. Just checked webMD and used soap and water followed by ice pack on and off every 10 min. for 2 hours and two Benadryl. The ice made the stinging stop by numbing everything pretty quickly. I was not allergic to the sting fortunately.



    Sounds like a Blumenthal story.

    He's been a racist for years, so why is anyone surprised? He came out of the closet with his long running birther issue and lied about having a private eye verify it for him. Then he went after the immigrant Gold Star parents. Then he loved "good people on both sides", one side of which were the torch carrying white nationalists who forgot to bring their little white hoods with them. He should go back to the Confederacy from which he sprang.

    I hope your employment has nothing to do with our judicial system if this is proof of racism!  Do you have an actual list of damages that he inflicted on a minority?   Put down that pipe, pull them pants up and ax an amulance driver to take you to the nearest psych ward.

    Trump wins emolument case.
    President Trump scored a big win on Wednesday when the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to throw out a case that accused him of violating the Constitution through earnings from D.C. businesses including the Trump International Hotel.

    The lawsuit, brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and Washington, D.C., claimed that earnings from the hotel and its related businesses violated prohibitions against receiving benefits from foreign governments, the U.S., or individual states.



    Corky says Trump celebrated by hitting a large bucket and Bayrock caught him!
