Only an unusual connection.

Not to be considered something super important or even relevant but did anyone else wonder about Trumps quote on Conflict with North Korea as being "Major, Major".

For those who may remember. A main character in Joseph Heller's book Catch22 was named Major Major- sort of a joke character.
Could Trump be channeling this guy?

Only a connection concern about Healthcare

When there was extensive discussion on this forum and the country in general about a Health care solution in 2008/9 and we ended up with a Health care plan that was a "Republican" plan (that was from an early Heritage Foundation proposal), why does anyone think that the Republican's can fix this issue with any proposal? Didn't they fail on this from the start? Isn't is time to really consider something more radical, like "signal payer"? Bottom line is that Republican's can't fix anything can they?

Where's DemoTex?

Haven't seen anything in GD Greatest Threads in forever. Stuck in some FireLookout without internet access?

Cheney's Logic

The Dick, Cheney has been up in arms about how this new agreement with Iran (that Obama and the world have arranged), is tied to the idea that nobody or anything should agree to or be involved with something as bad as Iran getting anything like nuclear energy (not bombs, mind you, but energy) or anything that helps Iran. That anything that helps them along these lines is the worst thing that can happen. Everything should be brought to bear to prevent or punish that.

Well, I would suggest that anyone or anything that was involved in heart transplants that helped continue this plague upon the earth should be held to the same standard that he advocates.


Never posted in this Forum before, so please indulge.

We have a greenhouse to grow things here because we live in the mountains of New Mexico and anything we try to grow outside are consumed by our furry neighbors.

This year we discovered that the worms we had added to our raised beds the year before were still alive after our hard winter, so we decided to help them along with some "food". We saved our organic discards, ground them up in a blender and added to the beds, stirred, and hoped for good fertilizer. Well, after a few additions we got lots of volunteers. This first round was frozen out, but something returned a few weeks later.

We thought that these things were cantaloupes, since we had lots of that in the mix. We nursed them along and hand fertilized, like our cuc's, and we have lots of "fruit". We were expecting melons but we think we ended up with Acorn Squash. Can't remember having any in that time frame, but what the heck. We got some tomato's and some Jalapeno's too. A bumper crop of things we didn't expect. Pretty Cool.

Just thought we'd shared our bounty with the DU crowd.....
