    I think 1/4 of our university students are bitten by something.

    Common sense isn't so common anymore and hasn't been since that woman spilled coffee in her lap at McDonald's drive thru.

    Tearing down statues and stomping on their heads... :o It's almost out of control and headed one or two steps to somewhere worse.

    it's probably ticks.

    dang ticks.

    It’s not about what you make, it’s about how much you spend, and that’s why California is nearly bankrupt. Sacramento spends like a drunken sailor on shore leave, with the state being 1.3 TRILLION in debt. Surprised they didn’t teach you basic mathematics in school.

    Wait for what ?

    You can use that same chart, and see the progress under the last 2 presidents and now the current one. Hmmm, which years was flatter ?

    GDP is just one indicator of the strength of an economy. That alone is not everything that should concern us though, even though it is a biggie that effects many other areas.

    Nobody will argue Cali has a great economy in it's own right, just like we do as a country. However one has to ask....in both cases, where's the coin ? Is debt being paid down ? If not, why not ? Or are they both just looking for more ways to spend their new wealth ?

    I think we all know that answer. So when we go bust again, the pain will be that much greater.

    Don’t let your kid take that to school... they will get suspended real quick, and child protective services will be knocking on your door. Here in California, straws need to be securely locked in a weapon safe, so you can bet the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and drinking straws will be kicking the door down as well.

  • CA didn't actually ban plastic straws. They just won't give you one unless you want one. Which is fine. Sometimes I just don't want or need a straw in my water or stronger beverage.

    ^^Correct, but Fox News stated ban, so those that cant or wont read past the headline are going with ban.


    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    Yep, that is exactly what Fox called it a" ban", are you arguing that fact? I know where you find your shiny objects.

    So, you admit you didn’t read past the headline. Don't worry, it's ok.
