So it is like pulling teeth to have to try to walk the computer illiterate thru a process over the phone. You can't see the screen and have no idea if they are actually doing what you are telling them to do. Walking my mom thru stuff when she's sitting next to me is easy. But when the rubber hitsthe road and she is at her house, big fail. Tried last night and have no idea what she was doing, but I know she was not doing what I told her cause the expected outcome was not happening.
Solution: I found a program that records my computer screen and my voice. I made a few how to videos showing her how to perform a few simple tasks. Maybe by having those to refer to as much as she wants, the concepts will sink in and she can combine some of those tasks and get some stuff done.
I have an ex who would (with my cooperation) hack into my computer from his place to fix/do stuff for me without having to drive over to fix an easy (for him) problem. But then when I got better/faster internet, there was a firewall that kept him from being able to do that. But it ws a nice perk! Sometimes, when I didn't want to be on my computer all weekend due to oblig;ations, I'd have him hack in on a Friday night and change my log-in password. THen Sunday night, he'd hack back in and change it back for me.

Hey, Icon Clicking dummies ... check this out:

Obama quote from 2006 when he voted against raising the debt ceiling:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.... Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem."

It's just amazing that once he gets into office that America no longer has a debt problem and how raising the debt limit is no longer a sign of failed leadership (actually in his defense it's hard to fail at leading when you don't even try to lead), no longer weakens us domestically and internationally, and longer shifts the burden of bad choices today onto the back sof our children and grandchildren.

I think it is only fitting that we should call him "Buck Stops Here, Obama" Wouldn't you agree?

No waivers. No deferments. You turn 18, you serve your country for 2 years.
I don't want to get into this, mainly because I'm way too busy with other stuff right now, and I actually kinda like the idea, but... Wouldn't this be unconstitutional? I think it violates the "liberty" part of "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" thing. <shrug> Just a thought.

Nothing int he Constitution says we CAN'T do it, eh? ;)

Israel doesn't require military service, i don't think -- you can do the military, but there's a civic service option (or noncombat military) for those who don't want military duty.

But I like Israel's stance on women in combat: WHy not? They're no more special than men, so why protect them?

I don't think so. We don't currently have a draft, but men are still supposed to register for selective service and COULD be drafted. I don't see this as any different. It would have to be passed by Congress, and I know it wouldn't be...I'm just saying it would be a good thing, that's all.
And "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" isn't in the Constitution. It's from the Declaration of Independence.
It would definitely never happen the way I suggested it...even if most people thought it was a good idea, it would never pass with the no deferment, no waiver thing. Even if every member of Congress agreed that everyone else should be actively involved, they would never sign off on the idea without a waiver for their own family and friends.
I would like to see this, but I know I never will.

Men turning 18 have to register for the SS or lose out on LOTS of college funding.

No, I think they have the draft. It's required. Deaf and hard of hearing people even have to serve.

From what I have read, everyone in Isreal is a potential conscript, but only about half end up actually serving, due to various reasons, including health, religion, and criminal records.
Modern warfare doesn't really have the same designated battle zones of the past, and women end up in combat situations all the time. Our restrictions against that are outdated, and need to be removed. We don't need a protected status, and we deal with the environment just as good, or bad, as men do.

I knew that. LOL Good catch.

I still think it's likely unconstitutional. I'm not sure how they justify a draft (when there is a draft that is) but then again I don't really care right now. Just listening to my teacher drone on and on and I'm finding you guys more entertaining.:D

For many years my downstairs neighbor was a woman of my age who had lived in Israel and served in the military. She could take apart , clean and reassemble her automatic weapon in something like 2 minutes ( can't remeber - did the Israelis use AK 47's?). It was really cool to watch. She also had a German Shepard who was nice to the people in the building ( 6 flat) but a good watch dog. None of this prevented my next door neighbor ( other apartment on the 3rd floor) from being mugged carrying groceries in from the garage to the back porch steps.

Have no fear, Race. Buck Stops Here, Obama is here.

The two top things on Buck Stops Here, Barack's agenda for the second term, are immigration (he has to reward Hispanics for voting for him in mass by at least trying to grant illegals amnesty so that 12-20 million illegal foreign nationals will be eligible for free Obamacare an all sorts of other entitlements on taxpayer's dimes ... more people on entitlements are just what we need ... they have helped lift so many out of poverty and put so many on the pathway to success ... that is why a black person is 6 times more likely than a white person to be on welfare ... it's done so much for them and helped lift them up) and gun control.

It's actually not quite six times. It's somewhere between 5 and 6 times more likely.

It just warms my heart to see us helping folks. It really makes a difference.

Question. Has nothing to do with guns, serving in the military, the Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence.

What do you all think of a guy who spends an evening flirting with a girl in a bar and then, in spite of having other potential ways to contact her, Facebook friend-requests her?
