Must have found a good one. Gary doesn't have it yet.

Gary has found it, but Gary doesn't believe the description is accurate as he can't find any info on how to use it!

So my question about cooling still stands as well as Carlos and my question about the hole in the side.

Isn't it illogical that you can display a 'false' price for a commodity, and offer a discount that corrects the 'error', but you cannot display the correct price and say there is a surcharge if you use a credit card. And in a country that has free speech.

In Today’s Supreme Court Case, Freedom Of Speech Meets Your Wallet

Unspoken in all this is the Master Credit Card Agreement that spells out the terms and conditions a merchant has. AFIK all the major credit card associations prohibit surcharge language contractually. Of course that is a civil matter, not a criminal one and the First Amendment only applies if the censor is the government.

Guy, maybe because in one of your examples artillery is involved. In the other two examples you used there is no artillery. I don't know, but perhaps that is the difference?

Gosh, I was thinking I might have to elucidate some anthropology, but I guess not ...
horde: noun: Anthropology a loosely knit small social group typically consisting of about five families.

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 -- About 3.5 million of today's Ashkenazi Jews -- about 40 percent of the total Ashkenazi population -- are descended from just four women, a genetic study indicates.

Perhaps there is an issue with the definition below that isn't in one poster's dictionary ...
horde: noun: an army or tribe of nomadic warriors

I don't think "army" or "warriors" is the issue and "tribe" can't be as even the bible refers to them as a tribe, so it must be "nomadic."
Perhaps Clyde can elucidate how this word "nomadic" is offensive? Or perhaps he can't.

In any case this has been a good flame war the mods have allowed, so good for free speech rights!

But bringing it up every five minutes is an attempt to annoy and/or hijack

No messages intended to annoy or antagonize other people, or to hijack a thread.
No messages that are deliberately hostile, threatening, or insulting.

I'd say having fun at the expense of another poster by deliberately mischaracterizing his meaning might fit into the above. Doing it over and over with many posters is a characteristic of an under bridge dweller.

Tolerance, Clyde? FacePalm

Seems I remember a poster here who complained about safe spaces and microaggressions. It would seem his version of tolerance is everyone must accept the bully screaming vile hate filled rants in their face 24/7. Must tolerate others, but they are given the power to not tolerate you by not allowing you to say shut up!

I could say something about posting style, but I'll let the reader make that inference.

But the worst of its excesses are ONLY possible because of the application of Government Power (what many call Right-wing Authoritarianism).
The excesses of the left (Socialism, Communism, etc.), similarly, are ONLY possible because of the application of Government Power (what many call Left-wing Authoritarianism).

And which power results in those excesses?

Grant of Sovereignty, er corporation?
The power to mint money?
Police Power?
???

If we are not to repeat the excesses of the past, we need to know what power not to allow government to have.

Trump's incoming chief of staff, Reince Priebus, said Sunday that Trump indeed has accepted that Russia was responsible for the hacking, which targeted the Democratic National Committee and a top aide to former rival Hillary Clinton.

"He's not denying that entities in Russia were behind this particular campaign," Priebus said in a Sunday television interview.

He has to be a liberal to think that!

It certainly did seem to be a crime that was at least motivated by racism. They shall have the book thrown at them.

But you know what else is racist? Associating the criminals as 'children' of soon-to-be ex POTUS, (even with the quotes)..

Yes, that is racism, big time.
