Stupidity and ignorance are epidemic Kap. That's why I will not quit stating that in order to fix our country we must take the classrooms back from those polluting the minds of our young. If we don't the ignorant will outnumber us within the next 17 years. Let that sink in.

The enemies of our way of life have now been dumbing down our kids since the mid to late 80's. It's only gotten worse and has migrated from high schools to a guaranteed certainty in higher education where accreditation and academic rank are at least partially enhanced by Ivy trained professors. That's a small tree of rotten apples unless their field is science and mathematics.

RE: What grinds your gears?
Just came back from a 4 day weekend at the beach. Saw a couple things that just grinded my gears.

1) My little guys were playing in the sand. A family came in and set up camp right on top of where they were playing. WTF?
2) I ran each morning on the sidewalk along the shoreline. Every day I would have a family just stand there on the sidewalk not paying attention covering the sidewalk and into the grass. They didn't pay attention forcing me to stop to avoid plowing people over.

Finally, not beach related, but we got home Sunday morning to learn that our paper delivery driver caused a three car accident at the intersection near my house. All three cars were totaled, including one that was flipped over. This is a residential neighborhood with a lot of children and the posted speed limit is 25 mph. There is no reason why an accident with this level of impact should have occurred. Slow the eff down!

RE: What grinds your gears?
Had one more from yesterday that I forgot to post: While coming back from vacation, we stopped by a fast food Drive-Thru window. Within seconds, we were greeted with a "what do you want". After we placed the order we drove to the 1st window and were greeted by the employee who took the order, she was not smiling and in fact made no eye contact with us. She looked at us as if we were bothering her.

This is a huge chain. Whatever happened to a script that said something to the effect of "Welcome to _______, may I take your order?". What about greeting the customer with a smile and saying "Thank you, come back again"?

Holy moly, this is a huge national chain.

How on earth did I miss this gem?!?

Oh I am. I guess it happens there so much that I’ve gotten used to it.

Now on that front, I really dislike mission creep. I don’t know how a trip with the wife to Lowe’s ends up becoming a new deck.

RE: What grinds your gears?
Spent the day with the kiddos at Coney Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati. We were at Sunlite Pool, and put our towels and bags on lawn chairs very early in the day. Sunlite Pool has a high and low dive pool in the park. Spent a couple hours with the kids diving. Came back to our chairs and a couple were sitting on top of our chairs that were covered by our towels-- as if the towels (and our bags) were not even there.

Politely asked them to get off my towels-- this young couple looked at me as if they had no idea what I was talking about (they did not look like the brightest bulbs in the bunch) and did not offer an apology.

RE: What grinds your gears?
Just watched a Rachael Maddows show tonight (8-14). and was thinking about a possible purpose the Russians would have if the President is really manipulated ( A conspiracy theory to almost everyone on this board ). Think about the farming states if you watch this with the trade war that is in progress right now. I know this is off topic, but have been drinking and need time to determine what to say in a new topic.

Lol

Are we already back to the ROOOSKIES!!!?

Is it that week again already? I thought we were still on racisss! week.

But, hey. If you’re still up getting the drink on at 6 AM EST on a Wednesday/Thursday, I guess I can see watching that loon Maddow for some comedic relief. Maybe it’s cathartic (?). Hope it’s something decent like an absolut or Stoli.

But, no. Aside from some run of the mill, minor bookface ads, 100 grand I think, the entire RUSSIA!!! thing is a Madcow delusional, wishful dreamscape.

Sleep tight, morning weekday is very close to being on you...
