Totally fair.  @NoahLutz You should check SOCN out when you're eligible.   That topic IS being discussed there.

 

 

Yes, we do discuss this annoying habit amongst journalists. When someone on the right commits something like vehicle homicide their politics is noted, their affiliations noted, the person is responsible for the crime. When a progressive commits the same offense the vehicle commits the crime, that is how it’s presented in print, radio and on TV by people who supposedly know words matter.

I've voiced my opinion on this a few times, so I won't bore everyone by restating it again.  Everyone here is reasonably intelligent.  You know when your posts are touching on a political subject.  I would prefer those be kept in the subforum specifically designed for them.  If you elect to post those opinions here, then you should be OK with people indicating they disagree with you.

I don’t mind people disagreeing.  Calling me a racist and accusing me of things that never happened feels a bit different though, doesn’t it?

OK.  I was just following what seemed like the norms here as most of the recent posts in this thread are about politics, including by people who seem not to like that.

It does happen here, which, speaking for myself, I wish it wouldn't.  SOCN allows us to freely discuss these types of issues with people who have signed up for doing so.

My post wasn't really directed at your posts here.  It was more about the tendency to post a political opinion here and then objecting to people taking a different view.

Fair enough.  This seems to have been happening long before my post.  Yet, for some reason, my post seems to have sparked controversy.

:ranton:I get a call at home from my local Walgreens, saying a prescription refill is ready; one that i didn't order.  I go to pick it up, and the customer keypad refuses input of my home number, to which my online account is registered.  The pharmacy clerk says its now only accepting mobile phone numbers.  I bite my tongue to avoid barking out "ftb" and enter the cell number.

 

This shit chaps my ass.  My cell number is your business only if I say so.  As long as I'm breathing, I will have a hardline phone in my house, and I will use it!

 

Sorry Frank, but I will not do what I am told, and the rights to me aren't for sale.  f**k THAT BULLSHIT!  :rantoff:

 I think having a landline these days is silly, but I will righteously support your right to have one.  I get indignant with constant asking for email addresses when it’s not really necessary.

To be fair the vast majority of RS whiny progressives don’t behave that way. That is the m.o. of Invisible Airwaves, they snap way too easily best use the ignore function. I’ve had them on ignore for months, it’s relaxing*.

 

 

 

 

 

*Use of the pronouns they/them is an attempt to not assume one’s gender and be labeled a f***ing transphobic.

When I was working for Uncle we were required to have a hardline.  There were a couple of times when it was a needed communications source.  When we got hit by Hurricane Wilma and lost power in the house for two and a half days,  power to the phone lines was probably out for only four hours.  My boss called us all to make sure we were OK, and advised us to keep checking our hotline for office updates.  That was necessary since our data servers were seriously damaged; we were away from work for four more days until they were fixed.

I actually agree with the cell phone part.  My cell phone in theory allows you to get in touch with me wherever I am.  That's why mine is set so that except for a very, very, very limited number of people, if you call mine you go to voice mail.  As the great Joe Walsh said, "Just leave a message, maybe I'll call."

Just a simple thing like cancelling my newspaper subscription.  How many times do I have to say "NO"?   :angry:

I may have to take two days off in a row since I’ve been sick since Sunday night.  I had Monday off.  Looking like Black Friday is my return since work is closed for Thanksgiving.  It’s not as bad as yesterday but I’m still doubtful about cutting down pallets in the stock room while congested with sinus issues.

 

Got some Vitamin C packets yesterday from some Vons grocery delivery service.
