    Isn’t the Truman Doctrine an expansion of the Monroe Doctrine, which itself was actually an emulation of British colonialism?

    Don’t you mean Peter Davison? This is the pre-regeneration line from Tom Baker.

    Why is GoComics publishing a cartoon from THREE YEARS AGO? If this is to be a odd regular activity – I’d like to see some of OLIPHANT’S old work republished as daily updates (always got a chuckle out of his depiction of Jimmy Carter’s lips – nothing against Mr. Carter – who’s a wonderfully decent human being as opposed to the Cheeto-in-Chief).

    He didn’t say he denied visitors access to phone or internet. When people visit his home, they COULD do the things they need to do with a regular phone, or via the internet on his computer. However, if they complain that they can’t do those activities in the manner they PREFER (via cell phone), then this is their problem, and not cause for him to change to accommodate their addictions.

    I remember dialing the UHF channel like a safe-cracker to get the stations in juuuust right, and that I actually PREFERRED the old black and white television with rabbit ears (relegated to a corner of the enclosed back porch) to my grandmother’s new color TV and cable connection!

    YES! And once I managed to BLOCK my local station’s one(?) phone line with my grandmother’s dial telephone. My trick for calling in was to dial all but the last number and hold the ring for that number at the peg until the last second, but this time the circuits must have crossed(?). I had no sound – not even a busy signal – on my end, and the station kept complaining that no one was calling in! I kept the line blocked for about 20 minutes (until I figured everyone else was sick of trying to get through), hung up and quickly re-dialed, got through and WON the giveaway!

    Yes, they’ve become a new hybrid party, the DeRp party – a party of the 1%, whose symbol is the dollar sign, and whose nemesis is the barely tolerated (but mostly despised) 99% and their irritating needs for healthcare, decent standards of living, and clean air, food, and water.

    Several countries have elections on Sunday – but a holiday for elections has to be an ABSOLUTE holiday – none of the typical US nonsense of extended-hours holiday sales or special events requiring (non-emergency services) people to work on the holiday, which would defeat the whole “holiday so you have time to vote” idea.
