  • Here's Apple Pay in Action (video) [and replacing min-wage clerk jobs]

    Fletcher J to Oatka

    By the time you make it to check-out, you’ve already given the grocery store management “free labor” by walking through the store and pulling your own items. Piggly-Wiggly was the first grocery store to push that task off onto their customers, in the 1930’s. Before that, you’d go to the counter and present the clerk with a list of what you wanted, like Sam Drucker’s store in the old show Petticoat Junction. :)

    Self-service grocery stores like Piggly-Wiggly could trim costs over the old model, and by passing those savings on to their customers, became the new standard business model.

  • There’s No Difference Between ISIS and ISIL

    Fletcher J to plain talk

    That could be it, but I think Obama says “ISIL” out of sheer arrogance. Saying ISIL instead of ISIS like everyone else makes him feel superior to his American subjects. This is just part of his ego-driven personality, such as when Obama insists on pronouncing Pakistan as “POKistan”.

    Fletcher J to Thermalseeker

    I’ll sometimes do pretty much the same onion recipe in the oven, but I use Dale’s steak marinade and a little butter instead of soy sauce. (Dale’s is soy sauce-based, if you haven’t tried it before)

    The onions go great with a grilled steak. Now I’ve made myself very hungry... lol

    BTW, if you marinade steak or chicken in a mixture of Dale’s sauce and pineapple juice, you end up with a great teriyaki marinade. I don’t marinade any meat in straight Dale’s for more than 4 hours or so because it is too strong.

  • The Myth of Working Your Way Through College

    04/02/2014 7:41:47 AM PDT · 62 of 80
    Fletcher J to usconservative

    I also worked my way through college at a local state university, from 85-90. Tuition was $1800 per year for me, and minimum wage was approx $3.50. I worked 15hrs/week min wage during school, and worked construction for $10/hr every summer, 40hrs per week.

    My son is now going to the same university. Tuition is $14,000 per year, and minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. Like I did, he lives at home and commutes to save money.

    So it took me approx 514 hours of work at minimum wage to pay my yearly tuition. It would take my son approx 1931 hours to pay his. 3.75X more. He’s young, energetic and ambitious, but he can’t work 56 hours a week during school and 150 during the summer and still do well in school.

    Millenials are deserving of their fair share of criticism, but we can’t ignore the math. The federal government has greatly distorted the market by pumping money into education. And don’t even get me started on the price of textbooks these days...

    “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand. The life story of an American hero, Louis Zamparini, and absolutely one of the most inspiring books I’ve ever read. If you aren’t familiar with this one already, just buy it and start reading. Don’t even read the synopsis first; let the whole thing be a surprise. :)

    Unfortunately, gun posts like this will garner very little interest or responses on FR. So you’re probably on your own here. Also, everyone will be in complete agreement on what you should do, so the few people responding will all just tell you the same thing... ;)

    Seriously, though, I have a RRA and the quality is terrific. I’m sure the Armalite is great quality as well, but don’t have one. The Colt and SigSauer ARs are really great also. The Colt M4 that’s factory equipped with all the Magpul accessories costs a bit more, but is a sweet AR at a good price.

    While he was far from perfect, Jackson eliminated the National Bank, which was like an unelected branch of government, with the power to enrich or destroy members of congress - not a good thing for a Republic. He also held the union together thru the force of his personality. Jackson’s threats carried weight, unlike our current resident of the White House.

    Jackson can be fairly critized in many ways, but he was clearly not a punk.

    I wish that Ford would make a direct competitor to the Wrangler and call it a Bronco. That would be awesome.

    I keep daydreaming about the viability of taking a new Wrangler Rubicon and trading out wheels, badging, front grill, etc., and turning it into a fake “2014 Ford Bronco”. Maybe a blue one, repainted as a modern take on the 69 Bronco, with white wheel arches and white top? That would be an awesome conversation starter... lol

    Yeah, UT is expecting a good turnout for the Orange & White spring game this year, due to excitement over the new coach. He’s got to be better than the last one.

    Things could go either way for UT football this year, but it looks to be another building year. The crazy thing is that if we’d had *any* kind of reasonable defense last year, it would have been a good season. The defense will surely improve this year (how could it get worse?!?), but we’re losing a lot of talent on offense to make up for it.

    Either way, it’ll take a miracle for UT to beat Bama for the next few years...

    I have a lot of family in the Decatur area, so at least I didn’t get any grief from the Auburn fans last year. :) We have an annual Memorial Day family reunion in Decatur, eating at Big Bob Gibson’s, going to the balloon festival at Point Mallard, and a get-together at the river.

    It’s true that there are a lot of pitiful excuses for young men in this country these days, but it’s a BIG country, and there are still plenty of fine American men that want to serve.

    My son is currently in Air Force ROTC, and desperately wants to be an Air Force pilot. That’s been his goal since his pre-teen days. However, the competition is extremely tough, and he says that the rest of the guys in his detachment are all top-notch. If the competition nationwide is like what he’s seeing, he’ll have a difficult time getting a pilot slot. But, he’s trying his best, is scheduled for field training this summer, and can’t wait!

    Realistically, probably not. My understanding is that if the business has a self-service drink station that has both diet and sugar drinks, then the largest cup size allowable by nanny Bloomberg is 16oz.

    Fletcher J to stuck_in_new_orleans

    I’ll join those posters recommending going to a gun shop that has a range and rental guns. It shouldn’t be too hard to find one.

    Take your time and both of you shoot a variety of handguns and calibers. I can almost guarantee that you’ll find one that you just instinctively like. And, I can guarantee that what you like and your wife likes won’t be the same one... Buy one of each. heh

    Once you purchase your handgun(s), shotgun, or whatever, put in plenty of range time until operating the weapon is second nature, and could be done in the dark, under stress, etc.

    Also, consider what you will use it for - for a handgun to keep at home, light weight is a liability (heavier recoil), whereas if you want a handgun to conceal carry, you want something light and comfortable that you will actually wear.

    For a shotgun, the Remington 870 Express Tactical is a great gun at a reasonable price. Before all my guns were lost in a tragic boating accident, I loaded mine with low-recoil 00 buck shot, with a “side saddle” of extra shotshells on the stock.

    Ah, the “no true Scotsman” defense again... :)

    If you guys really think that using Sandy Hook is a great lead-in to a pro-homeschooling / anti-public school thread, I hope you aren’t in charge of PR or advertising strategy anywhere. I’m not saying that homeschooling was at fault, I’m saying that it’s really poor “optics”, given that the general public’s perception is that an adult homeschooler murdered tiny public school children.

    You claim I was being disingenuous about Adam being a homeschooler, but “not entirely accurate” (your words), is a good synonym for “far from wrong”... ;)

    But, I’ll gladly concede that Adam wasn’t really a homeschooler, if you’ll ping your ARtH ping list with your opinion on how many years (or percent) of homeschooling it takes before a kid is a “real” homeschooler, and ask for feedback. Let’s get a thread started!

    Once you’ve developed a consensus, you can use that as a determination on whether any given achievement is by a “real” homeschooler, and can therefore be celebrated on a ARtH thread. It’ll require some investigation into each child’s past, but it’s the only way we can all be “entirely accurate”, which is clearly very important.

But since he was instead the lunatic murderer, Adam was really just a public school kid with “brief homeschooling”, not a “real” homeschooler. ;)

    Since I didn’t actually blame homeschooling for the tragedy, I won’t apologize for my “insinuations”. I just couldn’t resist the petty pleasure in pointing that factual tidbit out to wintertime, to watch the mental gymnastics from a true obsessive.

This was in the 80’s, before the federal government got involved to help students, so if you went to a reasonably priced public university, you could pay as you went with a part time job during school and full time in the summers.

    Honda generators are the best; we’ve used the smaller models in Haiti with great results.

    That being said, I’ve seen some people advise skipping the generator and purchasing a large power inverter to use with your vehicle. Inverters are much cheaper than an equivalent size quality generator, and there’s no extra maintenance, fuel to rotate, etc. An idling car is not going to draw as much attention to your home. I wouldn’t want to let the car run around the clock, but it can be run when needed, even to let a freezer run for 30 minutes 3 or 4 times per day to keep your food from spoiling.

    Thank you for your polite response. You make a good point, but I think that informed voters can and should include a subjective judgements in their decision-making progress. That being said, the end of the republic is near if voters keep voting based solely on their “feelings”. That’s what got us Obama in the first place...

    In employment interviews, talking to the candidate and making a judgement call on his intelligence, motives and sincerity is a key to good hires. This holds true for political candidates as well, and we have a wealth of personal stories about both men with which I’ve drawn my subjective conclusion. If it were even close I’d completely discount it from my thoughts on the race, but the two are polar opposites on a personal level.

    Glad you’re not defensive... LOL I’ll ignore your insults to get straight to the point.

    Romney isn’t exactly a Reagan conservative, but in terms of the individuals themselves, Romney and Obama, there is a big difference between the two.

    Romney is a decent American family man who loves his country. On the other hand, Obama was raised by various America-hating scum, and welcomes seeing this country being humbled economically, politically, and militarily.

    Romney didn’t spend his formative years in Indonesia, wearing a sarong and eating dog meat. Romney’s father was American, not Kenyan. Romney’s mother was not a commie. It won’t require Romney to be elected President for Ann Romney to be proud of America. Romney didn’t spend 20 years listening to a pastor who said “Not God Bless America, god d**n America!”. Romney has never bowed to foreign leaders and gone on a world-wide apology tour. Romney has never associated with known terrorists to begin and maintain his political career. Romney has had a real job and made his own fortune, instead of spending his whole life in make-work jobs provided by political sponsors. Romney has executive experience. Romney has established a record of achievement, instead of breezing thru life with an assist from Affirmative Action. Romney is a hard worker, and not a lazy slug like Obama. Romney has been vetted, unlike Obama. Romney isn’t a narcassist who “wrote” TWO autobiographies before turning 40. Romney has never snorted cocaine or smoked pot. Romney would respect religious beliefs and free speech, unlike Obama. Romney chose conservative Paul Ryan for his running mate, Obama chose Joe Biden - to add some gravitas to the ticket! LOL Romney is promising us conservative governance, Obama is promising us liberal governance.

    Bottom line is that while I might disagree with Romney on a host of issues, I trust his motives. Obama, on the other hand, wants to manage America’s decline so that we are no longer a world leader. That’s a huge and fundamental differentiator between the two.

    This country would be hard-pressed to recover from another 4 years of Obama, so our best hope is to elect Romney and then hold him accountable to conservative principles. We have a chance to do that with Romney, and zero chance with a lame-duck Obama administration.

    Sorry that you’re so defensive, sweetie, on behalf of the author. Is it someone you know? I’ll stand by my comment, however, which is entirely logical and informed.

    This article is kind of like reading a restaurant review that starts with the author saying that until this week, he couldn’t discern any difference between eating horse shit and a decent meal. Although I may ultimately agree with the author’s conclusion about the restaurant, I would decline to consider him an expert on food.

    Likewise, anyone who couldn’t until recently see any difference between Obama and Romney has been ignorant of the facts, and I’ll look to others for deep politcal insights, thank you.

    Oh, I totally agree, but my second comment was meant as a joke, as Bill Clinton has a long history of “exposing himself”...

    NO civilian should be able to deny our servicemen the basic tool with which to do their jobs. If this moron ambassador wanted unarmed security, hire them. Don’t bring in unarmed Marines.

    Also, she should be held liable for her idiotic decision-making, if any of our Marines were injured after effectively being dissarmed.

    This lady really puts the ass in ambassador...

    The Democrat party has officially and undeniably become a Godless institution. Thousands of their party delegates voted three times to keep even a single mention of God out of their party platform, and did it during a live TV broadcast.

    BTW, I’m not sure it was a good idea to pray that the Democrats would expose themselves at the convention, given that Bill Clinton would be there... But praise God, he knew what you meant... ;)

    Davy’s essay “Not yours to give” should be required reading for all US citizens.

    Jackson and Polk were both Tennesseans. Plus, Tennessee voted against Al Gore, thus preventing the USA from getting one of the Worst Democrat presidents. :)

    Last year I was at the Bali outlet store with my wife. They had a sign that said “Bra fitter wanted. $7.50 an hour”

    I would have put in my applicaion, but I could only afford to pay $5 an hour at most. sigh
