  1. Not until I lose 30 lbs.
  2. Movement of 1/4" away from the chest would not be noticeable on camera, yet it is a legal stroke.

    I nit pick a lot. I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air. I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still. His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover. Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.

    Bernie supporters are not pleased. I'm a Bernie supporter, but after seeing the nearly Nuremberg rally last week, I'm saying screw the "progressive purity test." I think she realized she's not going to get the #BernieorBust crowd anyway. Warren is in a state where the governor would pick a republican to replace her, and the VP is essentially a paperweight. Warren is not liked by Wall Street and she needs the SuperPAC money for the fall. Trump is going to dump a lot of his personal funds into the campaign. Virginia's Democratic governor will pick a Democrat to replace Kaine. I think this was the final reason for the choice.

    While the points Trump made in his acceptance speech were all footnoted, they were what are called half-truths. They were facts taken from the NYT, Washington Post, and other reputable sources, but they left out the details surrounding those facts. A Half-truth is a statement that conveys only part of the truth, especially one used deliberately in order to deceive someone. It is a tool of propaganda. His speech was full of them. It also was not the America I'm living in. It gave a message that America is a mess and only Trump can fix it. This is a cult of personality. The worst thing people can do is underestimate Trump. The saving factor is that Trump is a narcissist and very thin skinned. The biggest mistake his opponents can make is to go after him with facts. Go after him with sarcasm and humor. How trustworthy is he? Ask his ex-wives he was openly cheating on. Focus on his 4 bankruptcies. His open lie when he said he was not aware of the KKK. Really, Donald? Go negative early and often. He mentioned one time using a nuke, so show a nuclear bomb going off in a commercial - that one was done by LBJ and did in Goldwater.

    This along with the end of print journalism which had relatively high standards to digital media where anyone can publish, and television news to the 24 hr infotainment and propaganda cycle from which it is increasingly difficult to sort out disinformation from reality, little to no investigative reporting, and we get what we have today. We get a world where people don't know what the hell is going on. We get people voting on complex issues when they have little or no knowledge about what their voting - take the Brexit as the latest example when the largest search on Google in the UK the day after the vote was "What is the European Union?" My god you'd think that people would look that up before they made their decision. But why doesn't that surprise me when people still think our president was born in Kenya? And that building the Great Wall of America will solve our problems - oh, and somehow he'll get Mexico to pay for it. Good luck with that. And thinking that cutting taxes even more for the rich will create jobs here and help reduce the deficit. #headdesk And @Chilli Dipper is dead right about the anti-discrimination ordinance in Charlotte. The NC State legislature's HB 2 contained specific language that reversed that ordinance. The climate in this country has gotten to the point where David Duke says it's ripe for him to make a run for the US Senate. And I think he'll win. I also think Trump will win the Presidency because he'll play the fear card. Fear always beats logic.

    The meme is a very brief summary. Here it is in its entirety: The 1956 Republican Platform UCSB Link It would pass for a modern Democratic Party platform well except for the atomic energy portion. I used to be a Republican.

    People on the left also are guided by the constitution.

    RE SCOTUS - true. Both republican and democratic nominees made that decision. 2. Obama got into the act after the NC law made the headlines and after the demonstrations made national news.

    The right has moved further right. 1. Gay marriage - the US Supreme Court made the ruling that it was allowed under the 14th Amendment. LGBTs are people. Who knew? 2. Trans bathrooms - This was not the rage of the left. They were a non-issue until the conservatives in the State of North Carolina and in other states decided to make it an issue in order to whip up their evangelical base for the election cycle. Once that happened they became an issue. Also, the law in NC went a lot further than just bathrooms. They've tried these laws in many other states. The American Family Association, part of the evangelical branch of the party, sets up phony situations to trigger fear. The politics of fear at work. And I beg to differ with you. The GOP today doesn't seem to be very interested in equal rights for all. JFK wouldn't be a Republican today. They pass legislation in states that strip protections for LGBT people. They pass legislation that restrict women's rights to health care and the rights women have over their own bodies. They look for ways to get around court rulings that forbid discrimination using so-called "freedom of religion laws" and now that those are starting to get tossed out by the courts, the latest tactic is the so-called "freedom of speech laws". If the extremists are not mainstream, how do they keep getting elected? I'm looking at you, Governor of Oklahoma, Governor of Kansas, Governor of NC, Governor Pence, Governor Walker (WI), Governor of Texas, damn, I could go on for a fairly long paragraph.

    God, that was scary last night. Republican Party: how far you have fallen.
  12. I'll see what the doctor says on Friday. I know I'll be out at least a month. If I do come back this year it'll probably be only at the range where it's flat.
  13. Well last Thursday playing on the 12th hole, I hit a second shot to the green with my 7 wood from a steep sidehill lie - it landed on the green - but I felt a sharp twinge in my left knee that definitely didn't feel good. It didn't bother me the rest of the round, and I figured that well, it's just that knee being weird. I've had injuries with it and you know it does weird stuff. But that night my entire thigh hurt. Friday it felt fine. Saturday it felt fine. Sunday I did some light strengthening stuff and it felt fine. Then yesterday I turned a little and it hurt again. Today it hurts again. It's the tendon that connects one of the quad muscles to the knee. I palpated the area. I think I'm done for the season. These things take a couple months or longer to heal. I see my doctor on Friday for my shoulders and I'll ask her then, but I know the answer - no golf.
