I did so well last time, I'll have at it again, this time three years and eight months in advance.
The winner of the 2016 election will be Jeb Bush.
I don't like it, but that's what I fear the owners have planned.
update - march 31, 2014 A year later, I'm feeling better about the call. Jeb's name is popping up with more frequency. He's keeping a low profile, not drawing any attention to himself. I think the plan is for nobody to have a lock after the primaries followed by a brokered convention. It would be even more dramatic if Jeb did not run in the primaries and got drafted at the convention.

Whenever I get a package delivered, Buddy comes running to play in the empty box. Comfortable fit is, apparently, not all that important.
I think I can fit in here...
If I can get turned around right...
OK, that leg's a problem...
Almost.. just,,,push...a little...
OK, I'm calling this "in." No more pictures.

If someone had told me back when I was young Uncle Dave that the day would come when employers could require a background check and a drug test for a part-time minimum-wage job standing on the street holding a sign, I'd have said he was crazy. He would have been right. It's the country that's gone crazy.

This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .
Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Viet Nam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.
In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Viet Nam.
Sally said, "I remember clearly an evening when my husband came back to our apartment on Doctor's Circle carrying a thick official looking folder in his hands. Inside were hundreds of pages of certain studies commissioned by the government. He was in shock from the contents. What he read in those documents completely changed his life. From that moment on my conservative middle of the road husband grew his hair and beard and never cut them again. What is more, the VA Medical center let him do it, and other very conservative men in the staff followed his example. As I read the documents, I learned why."
Disclaimer: I have not verified this, I just think it's cool.
