  • L.L. Bean Scraps Legendary Lifetime Return Policy

    Yep, that’s the type. LOL. They are the same type of idiot that think gas station operator’s clean up selling gasoline, or grocery stores aren’t running tight margins. They don’t understand business. They’ve never ran one, but feel compelled to regulate them, or deign to lecture everyone, whether in academia or the media, etc.

    They really believe that *anyone* who has money, got it by being a crook. Period. Now I know a gas station owner that has become pretty wealthy but he’s been doing it for 40 years now, and works his ass off with 18 hour days. He puts on coveralls and is out there constantly. He isn’t making it on the gasoline itself.

    Liberals have (some) right to be pissed off, except they never focus their rage where it belongs. The gas station owner makes a dime on a gallon of gas, the state and feds makes .50c, and they didn’t do anything to earn it. Guys like Alinsky and his ideological heirs are there to make sure the mob never figures out who their enemies really are. Liberals.

    Used to be (still is) a problem with expensive suits and tuxedo, prom dress, wedding dress. EBay has serious problems, because they seem to think they are LL Bean now as well. Liberals are usually a “want somethin’ for nothin” type as my dad used to call ‘em. Whether at the national or federal level right down to local.

    Ex: Some of the taverns around where I worked used to have free snacks after 5 pm on certain days to drum up business. They might cook up a few pizzas and cut ‘em up into squares. That kind of thing. Just kind of a nice gesture, ya know? What the hell.

    You’d hear some idiot or two bragging about how they skipped breakfast and lunch to take advantage of “free food” and inhale almost all of it. Result? No more free food nights. Stupid fu&@ers.

    Can someone please explain exactly what they mean by this interference?

    Because I’ve been hearing these assertions for over a year now, but they never provide any details whatsoever. It is beyond bizarre. As a practical matter, every country on the planet has been trying to effect our elections for a very long time.

    What do they mean by this?

    Usually “everything is so cheap, right down to the seats!” should be cause for concern, at least when it comes to aviation. Just so long as they aren’t skimping on scheduled inspections, mechanics, parts etc.

    “Fast, good, or cheap. Pick two.”

    Well that’s right.

    Whom do they think is going to pay for the “refund”? The taxpayers. The city will probably have to float a bond in order to refund the money, and will get it from the same people ostensibly owed a refund. Sorta.

    Well that’s just it - they would.

    And if you were the one who had to cut checks to the underwriters, you’d raise the rates on those folks too. Or maybe what really happens, is good drivers get a discount. Depends how you look at it.

    But if points were assessed - people would pay more attention to what the legislature is doing. It’s all just a little too cozy and convenient for my tastes.

    In principle, I really don’t have a problem with the concept. But only if the revenue stays in the state or local jurisdiction, and only used for property tax relief or something that can’t be pissed away or stolen. No payola to the out of state grifters who then turn yellow lights into a distant memory.

    The same people who never drive safe and never pay aren’t going to change. If it’s really about safety, then get ‘em off the road.

    That’s how it’s done. Hispanics who commit crimes are White, for purposes of FBI statistics. Sounds legit.

    The way this (usually?) always works, the cameras are installed and the company takes their percentage. The cities just get a tiny fraction.

    No points are assessed on anyones license. This is part of the inherent contradictions. If it’s truly about safety then people need to be held accountable. But it’s more complicated than that.

    The real problem is municipalities are run on a long obsolete funding and revenue model from 50 or 100 years ago, when the currency markets, banking, bonds etc etc were sane, and decent paying jobs were relatively common. That’s all vaporised. They have huge obligations and will not be able to pay them. Human employees today cost too much money - Maybe the cameras can send tickets to the automated self-driving cars. Problem solved!

    There was a popular 1950s radio program called “I Was A Communist For The FBI” starring Dana Andrews, about Matt Cvetic who infiltrated communist cells in the USA

    One thing I discovered about modern leftists, and this has been true for a while, their knowledge base is extremely shallow. Don’t misunderstand they know talking points, slogans, and thought ending cliches, but they don’t really know or understand history, certainly not in any context or depth. Their points are usually employed as a kind of talisman or almost magical incantations. It’s easy to see why - they are often arguing with people who havebeen worked over and guilt-tripped into rolling. “McCarthyism!!”

    But I discovered they have no defense against someone who truly knows and understands the subject at hand. This knocks them off their feet. They have no way to respond, because they can’t argue with facts, logic, reason.

    This is one reason why they’ve been dumbing down public (government) schools for generations. And it works.

    So, all these years later - we have a disgraced former FBI director who makes an absurd statement like that - and not 1 in a 1000, either in the press or anywhere else, seems to be able to pick up on that. Sad!

    At this late date, it’s long past time to try and “convince” anyone or persuade anyone using facts, logic, or reason.

    Liberalism really is a mental disorder.

    As an aside, while I’m sure it is at least technically possible, I rather doubt the stories. They are lying. Because that is their default. Always.

    Where there is no doubt of discrimination would be for a female in a hard line Moslem country NOT to wear a hijab in public. It’s a requirement. The mental pretzel contortions these people must twist themselves into is astonishing.

    Don’t be fooled.

    What happened to Glenn Beck?

    There was a time, when he was doing yeoman’s work exposing the infiltration of the wackadoodles into sensitive government positions, the frankfurt school communists in academia etc etc. What happened?? The last I heard he was running stuffed toys down to the border or some BS like that. Really sad.

    They claimed over 80 different languages were spoken in the Cedar Valley.

    I don’t know where you’re drawing any percentages from, it didn’t say anything about that.

    What was galling of course was they made this claim as if it were an absolutely unalloyed good thing. This is always the tell - vague or ambiguous slogans or what some people refer to as “thought ending cliches”, witticisms that are generally designed to end debate.

    People don’t think about things any more - they just regurgitate leftist talking points.

    Can you point out what’s wrong with the following?

    “We’re a Nation of Immigrants!”

    “Diversity Makes Us Stronger”

    What a cunt.

    He obviously knows nothing of the military, of the fine men and women who serve with honor and integrity and bring great credit upon themselves, their assigned unit, and America.

    You would be AMAZED at how smart some of those folks are. Even in, ESPECIALLY in, fields like Infantry, that are, supposedly filled with “dumb grunts.” Why is this, one might ask? Because sometimes people want to do incredible things, they want to prove to themselves they have what it takes.

    This is reason #4,532 why getting rid of the draft was such a bad idea. If this clown had actually served a couple years he’d know all this, and kept his moth shut.

    The local school district last year sent out a mailer to all households bragging on their claims that over 80 different languages are spoken in the area.

    Have to go to school for a long time to get that stupid. They believe they are “intellectuals”. Truth is they are a bunch of quacks. Now it is true if one makes their living teaching ESL, that makes for pretty good job security, for a while anyway.

    “As temperatures dip across the country you may want to check ...”

    Yeah, no. They may want to check if they want to Blow Me.

    Years ago, probably 1960s they had a public ad campaign about leaving keys in the ignition. “Help Keep a Good Kid from Going Bad” or somesuch. In those days people still understood what was what and the public outcry was such that the ad was pulled. People were furious.

    This sleight of hand BS only works to a point. Most late model remote start vehicles are locked and disabled, it is no more theft prone than anything else because any attempt at moving the vehicle will result in a security system shutdown. So what’s the answer now? “Global Warming” natch.

    Absolutely, this is all Kabuki theater. Anyone with half a brain cell has known this from the start.

    All those emails had a sender, but also a recipient. It’s also a given though, that none of the commmunications could have ended up on an unsecure network without someone or someones breaking numerous laws, all Federal felonies.

    It’s not possible to send an email from a secure facility to or over the internet as most people understand it, it’s not connected to the internet for exactly this reason. They would have to be physically copied or scanned or downloaded and then printed out etc.

    None of this is ever mentioned. It’s simply referred to as “email scandal” but it really has nothing to do with email per se, they were unsecured computer servers where official state secrets and satellite imagery and the rest of it were kept and exchanged. Another big lie is the claim that other secretaries of state did the same thing.

    The whole thing is just absolutely bat shit CRAZY and I still can’t believe it.
