  3. Hint: when you see the name "Andy Borowitz" as the author of an article, it is firmly tongue-in-cheek. Try some of his other articles: https://www.newyorker.com/contributors/andy-borowitz
  4. The whole piece reads as satire - he got "free checking" because he maintained a certain minimum balance of $500, this sounds like a normal discount extended to anyone who does the same. The Clinton campaign "jumps" on that and spins it as him paying $500 to banks for favours. There's also the reference to him having auto-cover that I presume provides the discount that is also referenced as him being on the take agin. Plus the article is listed under Humour in the link, pretty much seals it.

  6. Hi mister, I just re-read the entire article ( for the 3rd time ). I do not see where it was just for him & only him. Do you see it that way? Maybe we are interpreting something differently. Jerry Baumchen

  8. Anderson tore him to pieces, it was some of the most satisfying cable news that I’ve seen in a while.
  9. I’m not arguing climate change with you. I don’t talk religion with fanatics either. I’m talking grammar and communication. You stated that it’s ridiculous to have ‘drought and flood’ in the same sentence. You’re simply wrong in that statement.
  10. Look closer at the url...
  11. Hi Robert, I remember when that came out, and I thought, no big deal. My bank gives me free checking for maintaining a certain minimum amount of money in my accounts. Now, if they ( all of those banks ) did this just for Bernie, then it would be something. If it is normal for those banks; then, so what. Jerry Baumchen
  12. We should all be very happy that there is a great difference between a real man and a real woman. In no way am I denigrating women. My wife is a successful executive and my eleven year old daughter has been in MMA since she was five and is now training for her black belt in youth MMA. I am an unabashed feminist. That said, viva la difference!

  14. In previous posts Bill claimed that the fire that destroyed Paradise California was due to climate change. (you know, warmer, drier conditions making things ripe for a fire) I pointed out that the area was in a ZERO drought condition and the temperatures were in the mid 70s and that the area had one of the wettest springs on record. He quickly pivoted and said it was the wet conditions in the spring that led to lots of growth that provided the fuel for the fire. See, either way it is climate change. BTW Airdvr asked an important question. Are these floodroughts a recent phenomenon?
  15. Yesterday
  16. When did flooding and droughts start? Is this a new phenomena?
  17. Well, this came out during the 2016 campaign: https://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/sanders-admits-receiving-free-checking-from-big-banks
  18. We should pick a date when surprising and shocking information about Bernie is leaked to the press. I'm going with 11 days prior to the election. It worked last time.
  19. But your retort was about what BILL posted. Not what YOU said.... And he's not stupid enough for his sentence to mean what you want it to. Which means you're deliberately taking it wrongly to try and ridicule the entire argument so you can say 'how ridiculous you sound'. "But the reason that more people are coming to accept climate change is not that anyone is going to convince them - but because they have seen the flooding and the droughts and the fires," is what he said... At no point does that post indicate that he's talking about the same locations or even the same point in time. There might be flooding in typically dry areas, and vice versa. And these events don't have to happen simultaneously for that sentence to still be valid. So not only is your argument grammatically incorrect as there are any number of sentences in which 'flooding' and 'droughts' can be used in the same sentence without being ridiculous, it's also a fallacy based upon your deliberate and dishonest misunderstanding of the post. So like I said, a ludicrous argument to support your point of view... Try harder next time.
  20. The company said: "The unit has been visibly damaged from the client, the soldering are not the original ones as well the battery has been changed even if the unit has 4 jumps only." It is as if someone at Parasport doesn't realize that unit was ever sent in for repair by their own folks.... when clearly they should have some history from its serial numbers and see that it is a problem unit. Do they have a poor database detailing their products shipped? Or tracking of customer issues? Especially with them having changed the serial number? Or is it a dumb employee who didn't use the databases correctly? Hanlon's razor: " Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity" So is their decision final or is there still a chance to explain to them how they messed up?

  22. Bill, I didn't want to announce this until I had sufficient data but I've been measuring the distance between these Caribbean Islands for several years and I have to tell you there has been no change. Nada. The whole continental drift thing is proven hocus pocus. So maybe, just maybe, Brent is right about climate change. Afterall, the tides come in and the tides go out; they're just sloshing around like water in the tub, situation normal. Unless you're willing to believe our tiny little moon with a smirking face is pulling us around like a little red wagon, that is.
  23. The whole Russian interference thing, along with the reaction of the Mango Mussolini - anger at the fact the Ds on the House committee were told, firing the DNI and replacing him with a Toady, all of that should scare the living fuck out of any intelligent citizen.
  24. After 50 years of physicals and seeing nothing but bored faces while listening to my heart, watching her bored face turn to a concerned face was sure eye opening.
  25. No I am talking about the same area of the world. Low water level in the Great Lakes? Climate change! High water level in the Great Lakes? Climate change! Dry summer in the Mid-West? Climate change! Wet summer? Climate Change. No snow in the Rockies? Climate change! Lots of snow in the Rockies? Climate change! It is the "heads I win, tails you loose" school of prediction.
  26. Thanks for the encouragement, it’s reassuring knowing others have dealt with this.
