    Mr. Tote: Answer a ve4ry simple question. Why can almost any Canadian come into our country with simply a passport, and that is fine with you.? Ditto, any Israeli, Italian, Irishmen, and on and on. But, if the person is from our ally Mexico it is earth shattering. I have never got an intelligent answer from anyone on that. What do they have cooties?

    preciousbunny businesses here accept US coins, except pennies -- we do not have cents -- but the US does not reciprocate. I save any US coin I receive so I have a stash to use when In travel south. Paper dollars are accepted with an exchange rate. Kelly is a very talented, award-winning, female.

    Swigger asks, "What other country allows just about anyone to come into their country with ease." (paraphrased). Well Canada and Mexico come to mind. As does most of Europe, and I would guess most of Africa. Unless Mr. Swigger's great, great grandfather was a native American his family was probably welcomed here before there were hoops to jump through.

    In fairness, lets say something positive about the Trump Administration. The F.B.I. has reported that violent crime was down 1% in 2017. This was due to coordination between the Justice Dept. and local police in high crime areas.

    Last I looked 10 year interest rate is up to 3.11 %. The normal wisdom is to be cautious when interest rates are heading higher. Yes, the talking heads on CNBC are once again saying this time will be different. Being a cautious fellow has saved me a lot of money during previous sharp downturns in the market. Companies are flashing inflation warnings. Be aware.

    Not to get Mr. Tote excited, which is very easy. But, the estimate of illegal aliens in Pa. is best guess 1% of the illegals in the country. S. Carolina is probably even less. This is hardly an important issue to most people in non border states. Protect our borders from those fruit pickers. They are so dangerous, especially around election time.

    Second Kavanaugh sexual complaint just came in from a 53 year old woman. Trump should just pull the nomination, and appoint the right wing Catholic Judge with 8 kids. She would be confirmed with no problem. I still think McConnel knew all this stuff before it came out. He warned not to nominate Kavanagh.

    Was just reading in SOUTHERN LIVING magazine the 11 SECRETS OF BEING A WELL LIKED PERSON. One of them is to ask questions of others. Most people like a person who shows interest in others. I used to educate the high school kids by saying "In order to be well liked, you must be likeable." Hard to like everyone. But, we should try.

    high plains swigger YOU ASS. I never said that I could care less if my fellow Carolinians lose their homes. What I said was that there are many well to do people living on the outterbanks and other shore locations who rebuild over and over again with the help of FEMA. If THEY want to live in such a place then THEY should not continuously get taxpayer dollars to rebuild year after year. THAT'S WHAT I SAID AND IT WAS PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Never said not to help the "women and children". There are ports of entry where people requesting asylum are provided for. food, clothing, medical attention and care. The "parents" who send their kids here unaccompanied just to get a foothold I have a problem with. You know damn well what the issue is. This is a sovereign nation with borders and the rule of law and can not survive being overrun by millions of unvetted immigrants who are not medically cleared. What country has an immigration policy that would allow millions to flood their borders over time unchecked? We are a nation of immigrants and am all for LEGAL entry.

    One of my grammar school gal pals shared PINK'S version of ME AND MY BOBBY McGee today. GREAT LIVE PERFORMANCE. I love music where the singer can actually sing, and you can understand every word. Liked it better than Joplin's version. STANDING OVATION PERFORMANCE.

    Morris Buttermaker Ok, everyone to their respective corners.

    Here's the issue - one should not compare a person, in this case a singer, to another as it always results in the tearing down of one or both of those people (singer). Let her work stand on its own.

    That's NetsFan's fault. What Nets should have done was share Pink's version with the Community and not compare her to another.


    Now, lets chill out and listen to Pink's performance at the link below.

    Enjoy.

    So, the ITCHY fellow does not care about paying $3.75 for a gallon of gas. Or, $10 for a gallon of milk. I kind of think that will not be the attitude in the States if these trade wars don't get settled by honest give and take negotiations. If prices go way up, the pressure to compromise will be hard to resist.

    Morris Buttermaker I have to call bullshit on something in this stream -

    The bailing out of the banks was not Obama. It was signed and sealed before he took office. All presidential candidates, from both sides, were briefed on the plan by Bush administration in the fall of 2008. In fact, it was the Bush administration that relaxed the restrictions and regulations that enabled these banks to pull of the biggest heist in U.S. history.

    I'm not taking a political stance here. I'm just wiping Fake News bullshit off the walls.

    So, I GUESSED Parx 3 million in purses would bring in a total handle of 7 million, it was 8,319,280. My Twitter friend thought MUCH MORE. That seems foolish to me to give those type of purses to get that type of handle. Maybe, some sponsor put up the money for those high purses?

    netsfan3 New Jersey by cutting the subsidy to zero has seriously harmed the Sire's breeding programs in our State for both standardbreds and flats. This is why at the Big M they had to run n/w of $2,500 last 5 races. Same with Monmouth Park. Both racetracks have had to reach into their own pockets to even keep the racing going. Both Mr. Gural (BIG M) and Mr. Drazin (M.P.) have promised to use any state subsidy they receive to raise the overnight purses and the Sire Stakes races. I believe the Haskell has usually been a sponsored event. William Hill the last few years. I forget the previous sponsor. Maybe, Budweiser? I think the BIG M is losing the Hambletonian next year. Sport's betting should help. But, not having a subsidy or slots hurt the tracks in NJ immensely.

    It is 4 A.M. I MUST NOW CHECK OUT what I was saying on Twitter yesterday. PARX was paying out around 3 million in purses yesterday. My guess was their total handle would be 7 million for the day. A TWITTER friend guessed much more.

    China just cancelled trade talks with the U.S. Better stock up on your Walmart stuff soon. American consumers are going to be paying these tariffs in higher prices. People are missing the important news to focus on the SCOTUS nomination.

    preciousbunny No Mr Tote.. it was a large Meijer Super Store -- like one of those huge Walmarts -- I agree with itchy .. I wouldn't change anything either. It was nice to go to the Jug this week but I am glad to be home.
