    President Donald Trump and his allies say their lawsuits aimed at subverting the 2020 election and reversing his loss to Joe Biden would be substantiated, if only judges were allowed to hear the cases --There is a central flaw in the argument-- Judges have heard the cases and have been among the harshest critics of the legal arguments put forth by Trump’s legal team, often dismissing them with scathing language of repudiation. Even Trump's own hand picked judges have said there is no legal merit to Trump's (so called) evidence. Yet Trump supporters continue to bang the drum about voter fraud.

    Trump supporters can't handle the truth

    Israel was apartheid South Africa's closest ally.
    Desmond Tutu (like Jimmy Carter) has condemned Israel as an apartheid state.

    slightly less extreme than Donald Trump.
    This farce should end. The US government should uphold its laws and cut off
    funding to Israel because of its acquisition and proliferation of nuclear weapons."

    The chances of this happening, though slight, are improving. GOP lawmakers have been making a lot of noise recently about sending our tax dollars to the American people and not overseas in the latest budget before the Senate. Carving out an exemption for Israel is something they'll have a hard time defending. Israel is America's spoiled child. It's long past time to cut the apron (and purse) strings.

    I think the homogeneity of car styles is something that "drooling midrange accountants" and their ilk have foisted up consumers over the last 40 years because they are dreary risk averse jobsworths. I don't think the homogeneity of car styles is caused by "consumer wish lists".
    The numbers on Wall Street would suggest otherwise, but hey - maybe you know more...

    A collection of pictures and cartoons from 10 years of doing
    the bloggy thing. I enjoyed putting it together but curled up
    my toes and groaned at some of the stuff I posted in those 10 years.

    Hopefully somebody somewhere has picked up something they
    can use in their games from all the games and positions I used.

    All I really wanted to do was put ...[text shortened]... then I consider it a good job done.

    Nice hat. I really like that desk of yours. Cup with pens, pencils, chess set, and random books scattered about. I'll wager there are millions of others out there (including mine) that look just like it. I think these posts are excellent!

    Happy New Year 🙂

    Will the cars that ordinary people drive ever again be as diverse and as distinctive in their shapes and styles as they were in the 1960s and 1970s?
    I doubt it. With all the available info. on demographics, consumer wish lists etc. Auto companies now know what it takes to build a car that generates company profits, and maximizing profits is more important than style and diversity.

    No because the US as a society and culture had morally evolved beyond that....thank God that Germany Japan or Russia hadn't invented The Bomb first because each of them would have gleefully dropped nukes by the truck load until they did take over the world.

    This is the 2nd biggest piece idiocy I've heard in 10 years (just behind Mexico paying for a border wall) US society and culture is no more moral than any other country. May I remind you (to quote a James Bond film) "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" Walk a few miles in the shoes of other citizens in other countries for awhile, and you'll sing a very different tune. You're simply displaying your own ignorance by posting this trash.

    As far as I can recall, it was a very good book.
    (My copy seems to have been stolen years ago.)
    Many thanks to everyone here for the feedback. This looks promising, and I'll put it on my list. Still a few months before I'm ready for another book though - 🙂

    Says as a child it was a big deal for her whole family across several generations.
    What an obvious self-serving lie, it wasn't invented until two years after her birth and it didn't begin to catch on for twenty years.

    It's as believable as Biden's fairy tale about standing up to Corn Pop and his gang while wearing a Speedo..
    Well, this sounds pretty darn serious to me. I say a Federal investigation of this matter is warranted - NOW! 😠

    Clearly Kamala Harris and Kwanzaa is a far higher priority than the 3,000+ Americans dying of COVID 19 everyday, and our overburdened healthcare infrastructure, while Donald is down in Florida playing another round of golf.

    Those Libs just don't understand what really matters! 🙄

    Wrong again! The Corporate CEO guys get rich by striking deals with the board of directors, and sucking tax $$ from the taxpayers. I know reading is a challenge for you, but if you'll make the effort, you might learn something.

    Wrong! Much of government subsidies and corporate tax cuts goes to stock buy backs and bloated salaries to CEO's and CFO's. If that's your idea of "reinvestment" I have a bridge I'll sell you - Cheap! 😏


    Please read and learn - (If that's not too difficult for you )

    During the Continuation War, Finland (which hardly could produce aircraft) used
    every captured Soviet aircraft that it could, even if dangerous to fly.

    Yes indeed. Those were desperate times. Out numbered and out gunned by the Soviets, the Finn's used weather, all white camouflaged, misdirection, superior knowledge of the local terrain, in addition to captured armaments' to wear down the Soviet advance. Those Finn's were a brave and sturdy lot.

    The Road to Chess Improvement by Alex Yermolinsky

    It was mentioned recently in Chess Life. This book is priced over $100.00 on Amazon. Does anyone here own a copy? Is it really that good? Is it worth the price?
