  1. Hi Joe, IMO all times are interesting. I think we are living in dangerous times; if not now, then soon. The nutters are getting nuttier by the moment. Jerry Baumchen
  2. Hi Ken, I was thinking about just what Bill writes in his OP the other day. I concluded that it is very possible that this country is headed for another Civil War. IMO it will not be state vs state, but brother vs brother. It could easily become open warfare in the streets. No police dep't. is populated to stop such a problem. Jerry Baumchen
  3. Hi nwt, While I am no expert, I also think that it would be a violation of the HIPPA laws. Best of luck with your cancer, Jerry Baumchen
  4. Hi Robert, Those 'mandates' are not absolute. Here in Oregon there are some exceptions for children having to be vax'd to go to school; religion for one, comes to mind. Or, one can merely do home-schooling to get around them. Jerry Baumchen
  5. Hi Joe, Re: I'm not sure if I agree with vax mandates or not I am firmly in the NOT category. That is the first step down a slippery slope that I want nothing to do with. I want ANY situation/discussion/treatment to be between my doctor & I. Re: I AM in favor of not allowing unvaxxed people in certain places, to do certain activities and putting them at the 'back of the line' for medical care. I agree totally. I also feel that if a person is not on an organ donor list, they should not receive an organ donation. Jerry Baumchen
  6. Hi Sky, For me, it is the simple Bell Curve. Cut off both ends & then we are talking. Jerry Baumchen
  7. Hi Bill, The human in me is against nuclear power due to the near costs & the very long-term waste storage costs. The engineer in me says we should continue doing good research. Jerry Baumchen
  8. Hi folks, As if there were any lingering doubts: Those living in counties that voted 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.26 times the death rate of those that went by the same margin for Biden. Republican-leaning areas continue to face more COVID deaths : NPR Jerry Baumchen
  9. Hi Bill, Re: He's about as far right as you can get. IMO if someone cannot accept that, in the words of MJOSparky, 'They haven't seen the ball since kickoff.' Jerry Baumchen
  10. Hi Darius, Re: Lets not pretend a baby It is a fetus not a baby. On this, I think you & I will never agree. Re: the state should have authority when its Vaccine's I know of no state that mandated vaccines. Jerry Baumchen
  11. Hi Jordan, For the best answer, try here: United Parachute Technologies - Skydiving Harness & Container Systems ( Jerry Baumchen
  12. Hi folks, This, fortunately was not a sacrifice but it did come close: Road rage on U.S. 26 Road rage on U.S. 26: Family returning from Oregon coast shot at by convicted armed robber, court records say - We simply must do more to keeps guns out of the hands of some people. Jerry Baumchen
  13. Hi heels. Re: Who is "we" and who was saying it? I have never heard of that. I spent 30 yrs working in the Dep't of Energy *; high voltage electrical transmission system. I've never heard such a thing either. Jerry Baumchen * The first 8 yrs or so, it was the Dept of Interior; prior to the creation of the DOE.
  14. Hi Robert, And another thing that will get the R's pulling their hair: History in the making: 3 women vie for Oregon governor Pamplin Media Group - History in the making: 3 women vie for Oregon governor No man will be on the ballot come November. Jerry Baumchen
