I just saw a blurb

that the Deputy AG is about to make an announcement. Anyone know what it's about? Mueller investigation, maybe?

All rescued???

Just heard on our local a.m. news that everyone is out of the cave! Can't find a link on-line, but if true, this is wonderful news.

What does "abolish profit" mean?

Serious question. I've read that the Democratic Socialists platform includes abolishing profit. Why would anyone be in business if they can't make a profit?

A little bit more about Roseanne . . .

What Roseanne did was horrendous, vile, disgusting, and she deserved everything that has happened in the last week, AND MORE.

I never knew that she had a traumatic brain injury many years ago, and I'm wondering if that may play a part in her impulsiveness and lack of judgment.

Years ago, I worked with a woman whose son had been brain injured in a motorcycle accident. She told me that you could converse with him, and never know that there was anything wrong with him; but if he got mad, he totally lost it--to the point where he couldn't hold a job, because he would lose control and lash out.

I certainly have no empathy for Roseanne, but it just seems like any normal person would have a little more self control, especially after all the stupid stuff she has done and said throughout her career. I mean, doesn't she ever learn?????

Seahawks postpone visit after Colin Kaepernick won't say if he'll stop kneeling


. . . After arranging for Colin Kaepernick to work out for the Seattle Seahawks this week, team officials postponed the trip when the quarterback declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season, a league source told ESPN on Thursday. . .

Why are the Seahawks drawing a line in the sand about this? Don't they have other players who have chosen not to stand? Was their fanbase making demands?

Someone, help me understand this . . .

A mentally deranged kid can explicitly say that he is going to be a "professional school shooter" and the FBI can't do a simple Google or Facebook search UNDER HIS REAL NAME, but cops investigate someone because of the square root symbol????


Students in Louisiana thought this math symbol looked like a gun. Police were called

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office.

On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign.

Super Bowl ad--Vikings

I just watched the extended version of the Ram Truck ad with the Vikings in it. In the full version, can you tell if that is Aaron Rodgers confronting the Vikings after they get to Minnesota?
