MM, the MFM are one rage minds.

Two days in a row without having to use the iPad! I could get used to this. It's fun to killfile a troll and then see the downstream comments blasted. Whelp, off to wrok.

MM, that would make my day.

from the link, "It’s important that the public fully understands what role Kristol and his publication played—and continue to play—in fueling the biggest political corruption scandal in American history. Kristol asks a lot of questions on Twitter. It’s time for him to answer some now."

Yesterday got my low cost Windows laptop for bedtime and travel web browsing. It won't win any performance awards, but for $214, I would not have expected it to. It did set up with ease and I can browse with all the features same as my primary laptop. MN primary vote turnout was low. I didn't vote. It's not like there's much to get excited about. I will vote in November when it counts. Pawlenty went down. He was our MN Jeb!. Off to work.

Extraneous, saw your post regarding success with Yanex browser. Are you satisfied with the platform as a replacement for iPad or PC? My Dell arrives today. It's an inexpensive Windows 10 platform so I'll see how it goes. I imagine there are Android platforms with better bang for buck performance. I'll see whether it suffices for web browsing and other light duties.

After seeing NVA traffic I said I'd never complain about Twin cities traffic. Traffic can get annoying here and summer road conduction can jam things up but nothing compares to i-95.

I remember the "Not one thin dime" rally in response to congressional earmarks. At the time I didn't realize the contempt GOP held for the electorate. Trump has pulled their covers and tugged on their cape. It explains why we could get the limited government we voted for them to implement.

That's a feature of their "do no evil" policy.

The Minneapolis park system is unique in that it is an independent tax authority so doesn't depend on state or local budgets. The park system was championed by Republicans in the late 1800's early 1900's. Democrats opposed the parks and favored giving the money to the poor. Today the parks are a Minneapolis jewel that even democrats have learned to support.

jim nj, that was a wild ride. Glad it ended happily. Winter driving can be a harsh mistress. I'm driving slower in my old age. I don't mind taking a few extra minutes to arrive safe rather than hours late after landing in a ditch or worse. Other people make other choices.

Minneapolis has a large park system with bike trails. Both are first rate. There are several large lakes and more smaller lakes. Virtually all the lake shore is public park wth fishing, boating and swimming. Mississippi, St Croix, and Minnesota rivers provide plenty of aquatic adventure. MN winters are cold and summers hot and humid. I much prefer summer here than NVA. There are 145 public use airports in MN and I've flown to all of them except for MSP.

Heh, jim nj. Good advice. I enjoy slipping and sliding in an empty snow covered lot. Folks here can display those same bad driving habits. It only takes a few to wreck it for everyone else. I've lived in MN longer than anywhere else. I never thought it would become home when I first came out for a nine month contract. God has a sense of humor.

I don't have a beater car and I don't plug it in. Actually I do plug it in now to keep the battery charged. I'm working at home and don't drive enough to keep the battery charged. I have learned that in deepest winter cold it's helpful to have my car in an unheated garage. I've observed the engine is usually 10F warmer than the OAT, and that makes a difference. Whelp, off to wrok!

jim nj, I lived in VT and NH for 22 years before moving to MN. I didn't know what cold was before coming here. The Atlantic Ocean is a great moderator of cold vs the barb wire that separates MN from the Arctic Circle.

jim nj, "Powerline doesn't care for this woman." There's a lot to not care about.

rich, I worked contract out in woodbridge 2003-2009. NVA has a lot to explore but in the big scheme of things I was always happiest with woodbridge in the rear-view mirror.

I like to believe the prediction of mayonnaise's demise is greatly exaggerated. Time to repost this link highlighting the kind of intersectionality I can enthusiastically support. http://www.latimes.com/food/dailydish/la-fo-grilling-with-mayonnaise-recipes-20170610-htmlstory.html

jim nj, your memories are accurate except for "Tends liberal". Twin Cities are an insipid Liberal monoculture.

I can't say, I've had AdBlock Plus loaded for a long time. Overall I like ScriptSafe the best.

DebinGA, are they trying to cut back on that day?
