    Thursday January 21, 2016

    Good morning all! I've missed this thread and wanted to say hello. It's nice to "see" old friends and some new faces. I hope everyone is doing well and I look forward to catching up again. Hoping everyone stays safe from the upcoming East Coast storm.

    From a Holocoust Survivor.

    I guess I extrapolated carry special identification to wearing badges. It's a slippery slope, still.

    What ONE Medical OR Non-Medical Word Do You Feel Is...

    I despise the phrase "reach out", as in "I'm going to reach out to Joe and see what he thinks". How about just saying "I'm going to call Joe" or I'm going to talk to Joe". It just seems really pretentious and ******* silly to me. I like F bombs, too.....

    http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/11/20/donald-trump-says-hed-absolutely-require-muslims-to-register/?_r=0 This is where I originally saw his proposal. Like all media, it could be inaccurate. But still, the thought is frightening.

    From a Holocoust Survivor.

    Actually, what I was referring to (and should have said directly) is Trump's proposal to have Muslims wear identification badges. That is exactly what Hitler did to Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, etc. before he started carting them off to concentration camps. It's not too big of a stretch to imagine the next step could be internment camps for Muslims. Then what? But, as Herring said, comparisons could be done about many things.

    From a Holocoust Survivor.

    As a Jew who had several Holocaust (not Holocoust) survivors in my family and has heard their experiences, let me assure you that Obama does not resemble Hitler, even remotely. Take a closer look at some other xenophobic presidential candidates and I think you'll see "amazing" similarities. You frighten me a bit.

    Who Would Be Your Choice For President

    All this talk of "Christian" principles makes me wonder whatever happened to separation of Church and State? Regardless of party affiliation, I will not vote for any religious fanatic or xenophobic moron. I'm going to vote for Bernie in the primary, but will vote for Hilary Clinton if she wins the democratic nomination even though she's not my first choice.

    You Have Just ONE Wish...

    I would wish for peace....I have everything I need, and I want to hear happy stuff on the news again. Sounds trite, but that's really all I want.

    Running at an Advanced Age

    I used to run 5-6 miles per day...then I finally listened to my hips and knees screaming and slowed down to a walk. Now I'm in a lazy phase and I haven't exercised regularly in a while. I'd rather sit and eat cake........

    The Happy Hour Weekday Thread!

    Thursday is my Friday, so does that mean I get 2 drinks (one for the weekday and one for the weekend)? I'll take a couple of Moscow Mules, please.

    AN.com Anonymous

    I tried to stay away....I really did...but I've relapsed (sobbing..). I'm powerless when it comes to AN. I've cut back on my posting but I still read every day. Sometimes I read several times a day...I'm going to have to learn to live with it.
