    So, your point is that it's better to buy nothing rather than to buy something you don't need from a company with some attempt at corporate responsibility? I can understand that.

    Is there a difference between a marketing gimmick and just plain marketing? I could interpret REI’s decision to close on Black Friday and Patagonia’s Black Friday as leading by example, albeit some...

    From what I have read about Chouinard I believe he is truly interested in helping the environment and it's not all just a marketing ploy. Although marketing is a part of a successful business. They...

    The figures I see that the government releases are that job growth has been steady, unemployment is at record lows, and wages for the lower incomes have been ticking up modestly. Trump has turned so...

    Based on what I've seen so far about any replacement, it's sort of like, beware what you wish for.

    i get the humor, but to me it gets to a failure of the system. Marijuana is illegal at the federal legal. How it is enforced can change from one regime to the next and one AG to the next. It’s...

    I take a swag to say that Mueller will be scrambling to finish up his investigation and it will be over soon.

    I didn't like Sessions, but I did gain a little respect for him as wanting to uphold...

    I tend to think of the Kent State shootings as an example of unnecessary deaths by military forces that were egged on by politicians. There may have been a few rocks thrown. It's a bad idea to...

    Yes, I was surprised of the process. I'm not the sort to attract suspicion. I understand some caution with a stranger and a weapon, but I was not treated politely and did not ever hear the words...

    I understand how a gun owner might want to dispose of a firearm, either to get it out of circulation or because it no longer works safely. I had an old hunting shotgun that was broken and could not...

    I googled “camping toilet” and there were quite a few types and prices. Some of the National Parks require people using the backcountry to haul out human waste. I think some of the choices...

    I have always washed before painting, but I don’t know that it’s necessary. I think about how the inside of my windows would look if I didn’t clean them for several years and figure that residue is...

    There is a penalty for not enrolling in part D when you first are eligible that you may have to pay for the duration of part D coverage. It all gets a little complicated for me so I'd suggest...

    By my experience and talking with others the three are probably similar price wise, but differ in service from one town to another and I'm not so sure any of them are that good. If your installation...

    I use a mulching mower, too. It’s easier than raking and the leaves get mulched back into the lawn, which I imagine is good. My neighbor collects a few large bags of leaves and rototills them into...

    It might be as relevant or more so to look at mass shootings rather than just murder. That seems to be the trend item these days.

    I've seen the news cite the increase in hate crimes, but that...
