My daughter went to a wedding in the US from the EU. She called me up to ask for any tips on car rentals that were so so expensive...

So I told her to book it through her plane ticket... She did so, and got it 3-4x cheaper that way...

Always do your car rentals FROM ABROAD, wherever you travel. Use a VPN if necessary... (if necessary, invent a foreign address - since they won't "like" your US driver's license when you go to pick up the car in the US...)

again that image didn't post without opening a new window, so here it is

The original linked image displays OK for me and I guess others on the forum.

I grabbed this image off of Twitter, so there may be some sort of technical issue, maybe with your browser? or your ISP?

If we ever stop stealing from Cuba, it will be a paradise...drop the sanctions and give back Gitmo, sure deal.

There's NOTHING to "steal" in Cuba... or else we would have been there, like IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, LIBYA... On the other hand, VENEZUELA is FULL of "natural resources"... but with Russian & Chinese military advisors...

We hold gitmo bay, an amazing piece of real estate, and yes we have "invaded", but as you pointed out they did and probably still do have hundreds of military advisors. We mind our manners.

Remember how Antionin Scalia and Ruth Ginsberg were good friends even though they held wildly different views on things?

I'm not embarassed to admit it, I have almost no friends. In fact, I actually prefer it that way. What I do have is a lot of acquaintances.

A woman I work with is about a 9.75 on a ten scale of far left leaning idealists and yet I can have conversations with her regarding just about any subject. We can disagree, left and right, (no pun intended) and still remain civil and "friendly".
She and I have that same kind of relationship that Scalia and Ginsberg had.

I think I killed that relationship today.

We were having an online discussion regarding vaccinations and the debate went back and forth a couple rounds when I asked - What about your mantra of "My body, my right"?

I said "You can't hold that opinion so dear to your heart for one cause and then, out of hand, reject for another cause that simply doesn't fit your narrative."

There was a long pause with no reply.

I typed - "Did I strike a nerve?"

Eventually, after a couple more minutes, she responded that she had been waiting for legal to review some contracts and all of a sudden she received system notifications that several had been approved and now she needed to get back to work on them ASAP.

what was she suppose to say? She is either thinking it over and realizing you are right or will have to respond back "My body my choice, Your body my choice too."

You broke a valve in her head, she needed time to repair it and trigger a reboot.
