[ - ] Can someone explain why the AR-15 rifle cannot be banned? Even if we ban just this one? There is no need for this weapon. I'm not understanding why even after Sandy Hook it wasn't banned. 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am pretty convinced that NRA money is going to be funneled pretty convincingly back to Russians. The NRA used to be a gun safety organization. It's exploded in recent decades promoting the sales and purchase of guns, and attacking any proposed regulations. It's a new "war" we're looking - and we were just attacked last year - and Russia won. [ Reply | More ]

This. At this point, the original purpose of the organization has been hijacked - they are actually encouraging every random shmuck to own any kind of gun they think they should have and presenting it an issue of freedom that is under attack from "the Left".

the purpose is to make friends who share your interests. you can use hashtags when you write things and then other people who search those hashtags find you. for example you may post "I'm going to the NYC checkers tournament tonight! #checkersNYC #nycCheckers #ILikeCheckers." Then other people who have your interests follow you or you follow them using those hashtags searches and it's a fun way to make friends [ Reply | More ]

I don't consider meeting people online to be not real life. They are real people who can become real friends, and it seems like that's the best way to meet people who you know have similar interests. What is the alternative. Go talk to random people in a bar and just hope they happen to also like checkers and want to go to checkers tournaments on weekends? Seems like using technology to make friends is a much better way since then you can scan their profiles and see if they seem like someone you would like rather than chatting with hundreds or thousands of people in order to find the few you like best. The latter options seems exhausting compared to searching hashtags and immediately getting a pool of people with shared interests. [ Reply | More ]

if they are in your same city you may meet them or if they live far away maybe not but you can still talk to them on twitter or become friends on facebook or talk on the phone even. it's fun to have friends who share your interests because they like talking about similar things or they may have insight on your shared interest or hobby. Maybe they know about an upcoming checkers convention in Philadelphia and are planning on attending and you decide to attend to and meet up with them there. I've met friends through facebook groups who I ended up meeting in person years later when I happened to be traveling near them and they saw me posting from their city and invited me over. So you aren't on any social media at all? just UB? why not make a facebook account and search the people you know and friend them? [ Reply | More ]

OP. Thanks, just checking. My son's the 22 year old. Both kids are in colleges, at different colleges. They just broke up today after 4 months (?), even though he likes her, because my son can't deal with her parents having to give her permission for everything. I guess her parents told her she can't see him for the next 3 months (she lives at home and goes to college locally) and my son basically said "I can't do that" because in 3 months he's out of college and moving anyway. Thanks for letting me check. [ Reply | More ]

Instead of just keeping the food warm in the oven for half an hour she starts pouting about how fine, we will just eat cold food then.

I may be biased in the view of many here, as I'm a guy, but I think there are two things going on here. One, is that people like to be appreciated. And I can totally get that op's dw feels unappreciated when her family says "let's heat in a half an hour." On the other hand, I also feel that she may have a control thing working -- that she wants everyone to eat when she deems it time. I can understand why op's not enthused about that part. I'd suggest you (op) and your dw agree on an official dinner time. If dinner is put on the table at that time, everyone drops what they're doing and says "THANK YOU!" If dinner is put on the table early, dw understands that she was early and people are appreciative, but not yet ready to eat. [ Reply | More ]

Too bad we don't live in the same building then. My family will come home starving, and sometimes (okay, often) I haven't managed to finish making dinner, so one kid and DH start picking at whatever is ready. I'll nag them to set the table and get drinks out, though now they are pretty good about. But back to you... I do think you should eat when the meal is ready or at least join her when the food is ready, or better yet, join her while she cooks. Your wife sounds like she might appreciate a break after her day at work, and some company. Even if you and the kids aren't hungry, maybe you and she can share a glass of wine and unwind while your kids hang out for a little while longer (depending on the age, maybe they are still off playing somewhere, but they will know you are spending time together), and then you can all start eating. Marriage is hard. Parenting is hard. Both can be enjoyable too. Good luck to you! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Divorced my DH about 5 years ago. Ever since, a friend has opened up to me about her lousy marriage and how she wants to leave. Now, friend and her DH are having a financial struggle, and she finally has mustered the strength to go. They are selling their house and she wants to lock in a rental apt for herself before the closing. She has poor credit history and would need to pay a year's rent up front, and would do so from the proceeds of the home sale. She has asked me to co-sign her lease, to be "extinguished" once the proceeds of the house sale come through and she can prepay a year's rent. I'm especially bothered by the fact that she is asking for this financial help while she still owns a (second) country house . I don't have a second home myself ( although I am financially very comfortable). She requested this of me by text, to which I responded that I hadn't fully decided, but I felt that she had other options: use the deposit money from the buyers, she could stay in her country house until such time as she has enough cash to prepay a full year's rent, she could stay in the house under contract with minimal furnishings. If heaven forbid she has a kitchen fire and damages the rental property, I'm on the hook for the liability. I don't want to do it. She has called me on the phone after I texted her my thoughts, and she left a message saying she senses i'm uncomfortable and doesn't want to put me in an awkward position. The ball is in my court to call her back: how do I say nicely that I won't do it? 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She has something every day - fancy music class, gymnastics class, mom group at her temple, story time, husband takes the baby swimming once a week. She must spend so much money on classes for a *baby.* Oy, SAHMs irk the crap out of me. 50 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Your jealousy is clear. Did it ever occur to you, bitch, that getting out and socializing is just as much for your "friend's" sanity as it is for her kid's enrichment? If she sat in the house playing on her laptop feeding the kid cheerios with Sesame Street on all day, you'd criticize her for that. You sound like a bitter WOHM whose kids cried out for the nanny when they woke up from a nightmare. [ Reply | More ]
