And in Wisconsin there will never be recreational or medicinal weed.  The legislature is tightly controlled by the Tavern League.  Nothing will interfere with their booze sales.
And I’m ok with that.  Wisconsin has a drinking culture. I’ve seen what has happened in states where weed is sold, and literally nothing good is coming from it.

Guess I'm not a Greennie cuz that's not why I don't like them.

I do think they are a good compromise . . .
But they still need oil changes, spark plugs, emissions control systems, engine computers, fuel injection systems, transmissions, drive shafts, differentials, radiators, and all the other things that makes EVs so much better than ICE cars.
Good thing computers never break and the drive motors never have problems.

She's the Veterinarian, right?  Sounds like a great plan!
Yep. She’s our only kid, so we want to stay at least within the same state as she is living in.

I don’t know what it is about dogs. I can’t think about our two dogs for one second (we had to put down) without immediately getting choked up.  I can think about my deceased father and sister all day without tears.  And I loved them.  But the dogs, and it’s been several years, that pain just stays near the surface forever.
To humans, dogs are a part of our lives. But to dogs, we ARE their life.

Dog lovers know that intuitively.

Congratulations on your pending retirement!  And a great looking family you have there.

On a separate but related note, one of our three dogs passed away last week.  Very sad, but now we're looking at all the shelters around to find a new family member.  I was going to retire in two years, but I got the itch to upgrade the plane to something faster, so it may be a bit longer.
I’ve been thinking the same thing. Depending on what I want to do with the plane (and a boat when I retire) I may drag it on another year.

I’m sorry about your dog. My daughter is a veterinarian she’s had to put down a couple of dogs recently that bothered her. They all impact these vets, but some hurt more than others.

I use Protonmail.  The stuff I send, I'm generally not concerned with.
So do you need to send the non-proton mail recipients something so they can decipher the encrypted message?  If it’s not “hit send” and move on, it seems a little troublesome.

Retiring as you've said previously, right?  When?  Where are you moving?  San Fran? Portland, Detroit?   ;D ;D ;D

Inquiring minds want to know! Congrats!
you’re a funny guy!  I’ll retire at the end of 2025 I think. We bought a lot in the Wisconsin Northwoods, and will be building a home. In fact we’re up here this weekend. Hiked to some waterfalls with
Our daughter and the two boys. This is on the shore of Lake Superior today

I’ve been using the free version of Zoho for over ten years and have been happy with it.  They don’t snoop or sell your data, no ads, they claim it’s encrypted.  They make money because they offer a whole suite of paid plans for business.    When I googled it just now I found a bunch of complaints about their support but I’ve never needed to contact support (knock on wood) so I can’t speak to that. 

I also have a protonmail account and sorry to say still have an old EarthLink account, paid version.  The EarthLink interface is the best, it’s still PC friendly.  Everyone else is going to phone style UI which I loathe. Zoho changed its UI a few years back and I’m less happy with it now.

I won’t use gmail anymore.

Resurrecting an old thread.  I was reading a PCMag review of Proton mail and everything says I should do it, but then I read this:

"When you encrypt a message for someone not using Proton Mail, you set a password and optionally a password hint. Naturally, you must transmit that password via some other channel, perhaps an encrypted messaging app. By default, encrypted messages to those not using Proton Mail expire after 28 days, though you can disable expiry or set a shorter expiration time, right down to a single hour. Messages between Proton Mail users don't expire.

"When your correspondent receives the message, it comes with an explanation, along with a link to view the message content online. The recipient simply enters the password to see your important missive. A banner above the message body counts down to the message's expiration."

Is it that much of a pain in the ass to send a message to people who aren't on Proton mail?  Since 100% of the people I know are not on Proton mail, I don't want to go through a multi-step process so they can unencrypt an email sent from me.  Just curious of your experience, Rush.

The liberals and RINO's are out to destroy her now that she endorsed Trump.   They are sending a message to anyone who dares defy them.

EXCLUSIVE: Married South Dakota governor Kristi Noem and Trump advisor Corey Lewandowski have been having a years-long clandestine affair
Fucking media.

A few corrections.   Biden was not elected (81 million votes my ass), same goes for the bimbo VP. 

Fetterman got elected because the fucking feckless Republican Party wouldn’t get behind Oz.  Thanks Mitch!
You made my points.

I know that's true.  So it is a shame that most conservatives have to pretend to not care because they think it makes them look like a liberal.
In what way have I lost the argument?  I don't think you even know what my argument is.
Being a realist doesn’t make us look like we don’t care, except to ignorant liberals who bought into the green orthodoxy.

I would say most here have been pro environment and conservationists since we were old enough and aware  enough to do so. The fact you would make an issue of it to make an absurd point is demeaning to yourself.

You lost the EV argument, so you lash out at everyone. Typical.
When I was a Boy Scout in the early 1970s I earned the Ecology merit badge. That was when global cooling was the threat, gasoline was being rationed, and the country was pretty filthy in terms of litter.

There was a mindset to keep our country clean. Cars had litter bags hanging from the window turn cranks or cigarette lighters. We returned our glass bottles to the grocery stores, we had paper bags, we recycled our daily newspapers at paper drives at our church.

We weren’t retarded enough to wrap paper straws in plastic wrappers to drink out of plastic cups and think we were “just doing something” to help the oceans.

Last time I was in Chicago I saw a black woman drop an empty McDonalds bag and cups out of a van and onto the street. I’ll bet she votes democrat.

  I do care about the environment.   I just don't get into the cultism over it like the leftist.   And I realize that fossil fuels have increased and improved our way of life.
