    Yeah... I have no idea why I didn't want to elaborate earlier. Thank goodness that no one dug back and pulled a few anecdotes out of their rear ends in their hurry to... agree... with me. I'm assuming you're agreeing with me, since my entire point is that if there IS discrimination, the solution is NOT Government. Of course that would mean that you only felt like being a spiteful jackass. Ah, that part of RPFs which believes divorces are only sought or caused by women, that deaths on the job constitute gender bias (but yet that gender also consistently talks about the virtues of the good old days where men worked and women stayed at home), and that sexual assault is usually just a boogeyman made up by women to get out of being ashamed of things. It'll be the last part to die, sadly. The very last.

    Erm, all low-pressure systems do that up 'round these parts :p * * * Wind is insane (sustained @ 25 with higher gusts even away from the bad parts of the system), already some trees down. We expect much less of an impact than GA, AL, MS, and LA, but it's still going to be sporadically dangerous. The main line (from my perspective) will be here within the hour. It's that tail hanging down from the picture he posted. That means it won't be bad for too long (good thing) but it also contains some really nasty wind and rain and likely hail (bad thing). Then there's another part expected to build and hit around midnight. Your timelines may vary.

    In some of those cases, it's easily solved by being cleaner. I see people taking their damned phones into the bathroom all the time (and even talking on them while in there), and purses hang on the little hook in the stall. That stall is not far from the toilet, which turns everything in the bowl into a mist that settles on that door. The desk almost never gets wiped down, even though people eat at it, drink at it, and in at least one case I witnessed change a dirty diaper on it. You don't have to be obsessive about it, but wiping down the desk area, not eating or doing other gross things at your desk, and generally using a little common sense... well I guess I'm asking too much.

    That's a bit of a relief. Thought she was closer to the AL and FL lines, which is where the worst is, and she'd mentioned the brother in the trailer.

    Stay safe in the southeast today. Awful weather overnight and it's going to crawl by today. Definitely need to bring in the lawn furniture, etc.. Suzanimal might be in it already (I never remember exactly where you are).

    Mostly it's because it's easier to screech for a law (when they're likely to get one) than it is to work to change hearts, minds, and private contracts of any sort. One of the other images you posted contains a great deal of truth. I could not afford to drop everything and go to DC for several days. Even when I lived in the area, the investment of time would be significant to get to a Metro station, park, take the train into town, get out, navigate this mess, etc.. Many of these women supposedly come from pretty far away. How did they get there? Did the celebrities bus some of them in? If so, how sick is that? Instead of donating to the causes they say they champion, they knit a few more hats and sent people on their way to protest? Not a one of them can name specific legislation they are against (especially since he hasn't been part of introducing anything yet). They are upset over things he said before, and they are upset over a bunch of petty stuff that has no relation to politics at all. Let's round it all off to 500k from all over the nation. Maybe if they'd been this passionate and this mobilized up front, their Hillary would have won. I am willing to bet a chunk of them stayed home, butthurt they couldn't vote for Bernie. Another portion stayed home because it was easy to do so. A small portion stayed home because they hated both options. That's fine, but then don't get this pissy over Trump winning; it's ridiculous. You know why stuff like "Christian Mingle" and "Farmers Only" and whatever get so much press and so many hits? Because people are desperate to avoid women and men like in the photos. Because I want someone who's never put on a sweater vest, and who doesn't have to think too long about whether they want to put on a bowler, or perhaps a bowtie, to go out to dinner with friends. Someone who opens doors and pays sincere compliments and is nice to old people, waiters, and dogs. He can be mean to cats, though. Cats are awful. Someone who likes to read and be quiet, but also has a sense of humor that may include a few more vulgar items that are only told under the right circumstances. Someone who's not easily offended at all, but does take it to heart if he offends someone else, taking it as an opportunity to learn something new (even if that something new is that people are way too easily offended). Also, at this point, he has to smoke or drink (or both) and be able to maintain all those character traits even when relaxed, drunk, or high. And he has to love my cooking. You will not find that marching in the streets at these damned protests.

    Tape aside, I don't see a whole lot of cleaning going on. If you bother to tape a child to the wall (or send them upstairs, or put them in time out, or wtfe), then CLEAN THE DAMNED HOUSE.

    Are you discussing laws or rights? I'm surprised to see someone mix the two up on here. Of course, that's one of the major problems with this march. There really ARE women's health issues that are a huge, systematic problem, but they have very little to do with legislation. Signs that say "stay out of my uterus" would make more sense if those same women were not screeching for funding for things to go in and around their uterus. If we are referring to laws, it's just going to become a war of anecdotes, and I'm not keen to get into that. I have been through some things where I was quite surprised to find roadblocks I hadn't considered, and that would definitely affect women at a higher rate, but I can also readily predict the arguments that would ensue on this board. Regardless, whichever gender is being treated "more unfairly," the solution is not going to be more legislation, societal backlash, or reparations.

    I like how, in that video, there's all the BS... but the two people he interviewed that were actually working people from the area basically hoped for the best and were hoping for jobs/higher wages. That's it.

    I don't really agree with that. There are still a number of situations where women are treated unfairly or downright terribly based purely on being women. These situations aren't new, as opposed to the relatively recent oppression of men (particularly via child support, etc.), so there are old injustices with new ones being piled on every day. Where I differ, though, is that these are battles that can be fought by people rather than Government. We don't need more laws, or special protection, or pandering speeches. It really is along the lines of all the other "rights" groups. We should be focusing on human, God-given, non-obtrusive rights for everyone rather than imposing laws on people to make life "fair" for others. The only one to profit from that is the entity making the laws --- and enforcing them.

    Oh also, I know we have some people in the area (relatively close, anyhow). Is there anything secondhand that would help out? For instance, if you were anywhere near me you'd have a quilt or two, some towels, and a TV stand. As it is, you're better off with me sending cash than spending it on shipping you stuff you might not like/need, but maybe someone is nearby if you need things to get started. Hell, I even have a set of plates lol I know there have to be people like that closer to where you are.

    I listened to a significant portion of it at work. Whether it's the portions I agreed with, or the larger portion I didn't agree with, it's still all words. I will admit to an unfounded hope that, when they were all smooching his backside while he was signing executive orders (not the important sort), he would tell them he was going to sign them all with the same pen. Instead he let them "remind" him into using a different one for each item, so they could be given away as expensive little mementos. Only time will tell what actually gets DONE in this administration, which is what is worrisome.

    Not sure where the confusion is. They explain the breakdown a bit further along, or at least the average for "lower" and "middle" income families. $5000/year equates to a little under $100/week, which is not shocking for a family (they do not specify the size of the average lower or middle income family).

    You can try abdominal massages to encourage things. There are videos on it, but basically you would be applying gentle, external, sequential pressure to your lower belly. It can be effective pretty quickly.
