    I think there are some capable Republicans. The problem is that the people who run the Republican Party are idiots. Look who they ran last time: a very wealthy one per center who was secretive about his faith and who really didn’t offer any real solutions to the problems of the time (which are the same problems we have now).

    The Republican Party believes they can run whoever they want and then get them elected by pouring huge amounts of wealthy donors’ cash into the campaign. That might work locally but it isn’t going to work in the next presidential campaign.

    It’s kind of the inverse of the old time yellow dog Democrat concept. The voter says, “I’m gonna vote Democrat even if he’s a yellow dog.” But the policy of today’s Republican Party is, " we’re gonna run this candidate even if he’s a yellow dog." Because it’s who we want.

    Hey, Republican Party, show us your solution for campaign reform, banking reform, education reform, healthcare reform, patent reform, inexplicably high drug prices, military and other government waste reform, etc., etc. Hey, Republican Party, it’s time to WAKE UP!

    I’m pretty sure he’s the one who makes all those churn trades in my Russell funds. And he’s probably the one who did three wash sales last year. Are professional fund managers really that stupid?

    Yes, it’s expensive to own a pet these days. But we think nothing of paying a thousand dollars a year for tv service or cell phone service or spending sixty dollars a week to fill up our gas tanks. I think the average vet graduates with about $120,000 debt. They can’t afford to give the service away.

    …so they don’t stink up their car? If they’re smoking in the car it’s going to stink, butts or no butts. As far as I know it’s impossible to get the smoke stink out of a car. You might as well junk it. And that perfume stuff dealers and rental companies put in there to try to hide the smoke smell is just as bad.

    The basic rule of traveling: take fewer clothes and more money.

    Here your public service announcement for today: If you have a Kitchenaid gas oven/ stove, DON’T run the self cleaning cycle. It will blow the thermal fuse which is about $35 to fix yourself or way,way more if you have to pay a service person to fix it.

    Sigh like so many of today’s kids, some dogs want you to entertained then during every waking hour.

    The clothing industry is missing a big opportunity: Boomer pants…big in the waist, small butt, and skinny legs.
