Retirement would be nice sooner than later

After trying it for 23 years, I can recommend it.

International / Historic Result at 2021 Junior World's
« on: August 19, 2021, 11:46:04 PM »
For the first time in history, Team USA has multiple Junior World champions (three) in women’s freestyle. None of the three gold-medal bouts lasted longer than two minutes. The team has another chance for gold in the final rounds starting early Friday morning. See the story on The Open Mat home page.

I hadn't heard of that, but quasi undeeded ownership sounds like a chancy situation.

International / Re: Good thing I'm staying home from the Olympics

This has the makings of a disaster of an Olympics. 

Maybe it's a disaster, but I've enjoyed watching a lot of events, and they haven't even come to wrestling yet.

Still can't close due to an estate tax issue.  Sucks.  Wifey is getting antsy.

Who's holding you up? Maybe wifey needs to get nasty.

Most Republicans want clean and fair elections.
I'd be interested in hearing about how you learned this.

Because they are the party of the right.  It only makes sense.

Thanks. That agrees with what I figured it took to convince you.

There are no steps that will prevent the integrity of the election system from being questioned in the future. That's politics. No legislature or governor can stop a clearly defeated candidate from claiming that the election was stolen.
There are lots of steps that can stamp out much corruption in the future.

Perhaps so, but mspart wants steps that will prevent politicians from questioning the integrity of the election system. Fat chance of that happening.

Many Republicans seem most eager for steps that would make voting harder for groups that usually favor Democrats. I assume the Democrats would like to do the same in reverse, but they're not the ones currently pushing for new laws.

Do you view Trump's repeated claims of a stolen election as the kind of wrongdoing you should condemn?
I view it as "Is he correct or just shooting his mouth off as a sore loser".  Jury is still out.  What is happening in Arizona and Georgia is giving credibility to his claims.

In my view, what's happening in Arizona and Georgia is giving credibility to his claims only to the credulous. But I agree that the jury is still out. I also believe that when the verdict is returned, there are many whose minds are already made up and will be unaffected by it.

I have never claimed that the election was stolen...  I have always condemned wrong doing regardless if there is a "D" or an "R" behind their name.  I don't know if Trump won or not.

Justice can have slow turning wheels and sometimes never happens at all.
I assume a determination that Donald Trump did in fact win the electoral vote by a landslide and the victory was stolen by massive fraud is your criterion for deciding that justice has happened. I agree with your suggestion that in this case justice may never happen at all.
You would be incorrect.  Thanks for thinking that I am a guy with no integrity.   :o

Of course my assumption could be wrong. I'll wait to decide about that until you have revealed the specific occurrence that will let you conclude that justice has happened with respect to the outcome of the 2020 election.

If it were shown that there was enough "irregulaties" to show that Biden did not win, would that change your mind on this?  Or will you adhere to the media's lines that all this is lies and more lies, and completely shown to be false and discredited.

There's a problem with "If it were shown". If it's proved somehow that Trump should have won, or if it's proved somehow that any irregularities were too minor to affect the election result, either way I will learn about it from some form of news report. If your frequently stated view that the news media can't be trusted is correct, I have no chance of ever knowing what has been shown.

I am 100% in a wait and see mode.

ctc, have you thought about what the current year will be when you are no longer in a wait and see mode? Do you think it's likely to happen sometime within the next ten years? I have my own idea about the answer to this, but I'm  curious to know what you think.
