    It pays to leave your options open. Good critical thinking skills.

    @ragarms
    I really hate saying much to the sarge. He thinks he has truth bottled up and ready to sell. It ain’t nothing but everclear.

    She is far thinking. I wonder if she is going to home school.

    Alex home-schooling…now there’s an interesting thought! Actually, I can kind of see it, and it’s not that far from the way some of my friends raised their kids (decades ago, of course, LOL).

    Shouldn’t Alix give leo some choice in the color scheme?

    Gotcha. And I just left the TruthDig site. Thanks for highlighting! Chris Hedges is not unfamiliar but I haven’t kept up enough..the comments section after the article was refreshing… I ran into a guy at work awhile back (I’m retired, recently) who was cranky, opinionated, and before labelling him as a putz, I learned he was the biggest Chris Hedges fan I’d ever met. This guy didn’t look, sound or act like a liberal, but my preconceptions of liberal behavior and attitudes were altered. Bottom line-Some, but not many, see this all this political division as the diversion created to distract the middle class from its slide into irrelevancy. There is a potential for understanding, but many people are entrenched in the morass of rhetoric. Thanks, and good night!

    @ragarms

    And goodnight to you, sir. I am happy to meet someone new who can discuss without thinking we have to agree point to point.

    You’re not married, are you… ? ;-)

    My wife makes decisions carefully after examining all the options. If I have to spend more than five minutes on a decision like a colour scheme, steam starts coming out of my ears. Over a third of a century of marriage, we have concluded that it’s easier if she just asks me to choose between her final two or three options. She then decides whether I’ve chosen correctly…

    Neither my wife nor I have any color sense or decorating sense. “We should paint this room a different color.” What color do you want? “I dunno. What color do you want?” I dunno. Red? Blue? Green? “We could flip a coin.” Just not white. The whole house is painted white. -—- We actually ended up hiring a consultant! -- So none of your stereotyping, sirs! The person who chooses the colors should be the one that has a preference and an opinion. That can be both, either, or neither.

    Secret to a happy marriage: Woman makes all the little decisions, man makes all the big ones.
     
    So what kinds of things does the wife decide?
     
    Oh, should I get a new job, what college do we want to send the kids to, should we move back to the Midwest, do I need that lasik surgery or will contacts suffice, that sort of thing.
     
    Really? Those are the LITTLE decisions? What do YOU get to decide, then?
     
    Big things. You know — do we need gun control, is it time to get out of Afghanistan, what are we going to do about immigration — MAN stuff.

    @Arye Uygur

    You’ve never been married, have you (or, at least, you haven’t yet fully grasped the concept …) ?


    My immediate thought exactly!

    After 31 years, I ask my husband what color he likes, and he says “eggplant”… ;-)

    Re: wonder if she plans to home school
    I figured it was her plan for saving for college!
