About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

I have a color printer that has been out of ink for several years

I only use it as a scanner.

Now I suddenly need access to a color printer. The manufacturer still makes the cartridges. However I wonder if leaving cartridges empty on the machine for several years has ruined it's printing capability?

I am debating buying 4 cartridges at $11 each or buying a new color printer.

Thanks in advance

Low information:

Most voters aren't paying attention, but we are.

"About half say Donald Trump's presidential transition is as organized or more organized than previous administrations, whereas about one in three describe it as less organized than past transitions,' said Dropp, though he noted that “many of the initial transition picks including Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon and Jeff Sessions are still largely unknown to Americans."


More than half of the respondents had never heard of, or had no opinion, about Trump’s chief of staff Priebus, chief strategist Bannon or Sessions, the Alabama senator who is Trump’s pick for attorney general.

Here we are freaking out about Bannon and Sessions while most voters don't even know who they are.

General Flynn makes me want to vomit - this is what he wrote about Turkey on Nov 8th



Our ally Turkey is in crisis and needs our support



It is fair to say that most Americans don’t know exactly what to make of our ally Turkey these days, as it endures a prolonged political crisis that challenges its long-term stability. The U.S. media is doing a bang-up job of reporting the Erdoğan government’s crackdown on dissidents, but it’s not putting it into perspective.

We must begin with understanding that Turkey is vital to U.S. interests. Turkey is really our strongest ally against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as well as a source of stability in the region. It provides badly needed cooperation with U.S. military operations. But the Obama administration is keeping Erdoğan’s government at arm’s length — an unwise policy that threatens our long-standing alliance.

The primary bone of contention between the U.S. and Turkey is Fethullah Gülen, a shady Islamic mullah residing in Pennsylvania whom former President Clinton once called his “friend” in a well circulated video.

The article goes on and on about Gülen. I don't like Gülen because of his charter school crap. But the charter schools are the Republicans doing anyway.
