  • Word for Mac issue: saved open file suddenly becomes a "work file"

    12/16/2017 12:22:37 PM PST · by rudy45
    On many occasions, I will be working on a previously-saved Word document. Normally, after I make changes and save, it simply gets saved--that is, I get NO window to name the file, because the file already exists. Sometimes, however, when I save such an open, already-created file, the name of the file suddenly changes to be a work file. At the same time, I get the window and dialog for saving a file and specifying a location. I then have to re-save that file, because if I don't, I lose not only that work file but also the previously-saved file...

    Capitol Hill is on pins and needles amid a deluge of sexual harassment allegations. According to the Daily Caller‘s Luke Rosiak, one of the leading journalists investigating the Awan brothers’ scandal, things are about to take yet another dark turn. “Congress’ human resources scandal is just getting started. I anticipate we will see the resignation of more than a dozen House members over harassment and secret settlements, and soon,” tweeted Luke Rosiak.

  • Have you ever noticed that "precedents" always benefit bigger, growing government?

    12/16/2017 12:06:21 PM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 2 replies
    Net Neutrality was just repealed. Why isn't that precedent setting? It's very precedent setting to me. You see, this word, "precedent", too, has been corrupted by the progressives. What if an entire agency were abolished tomorrow? Would that be precedent setting? In reality, yes it would be setting a precedent. But would it be cast that way? No, of course not. It wouldn't be talked of that way, and it wouldn't be reported that way. But on the other hand any time a court decision, or trillion dollar budgets, or thousands of executive orders, etc etc..... all of that and...

    When it comes to website design, the Obama White House was not known for doing so efficiently or cheaply. Those with long memories of insurance exchanges can attest to this. Apparently, this kind of profligacy extends to other web portals as well. And President Trump’s administration is going to save $3,000,000 by nuking the current design of and unveiling a new one.

    The Washington Standard ^ | 12-16-2017 | Tim Brown
    It's funny how when you report on things that people call you a "conspiracy theorist" and opine, "our government would never do that."  Such was the case of plenty of commenters back in 2014 when the protests and standoff took place in Bunkerville, Nevada at Bundy Ranch.  Well, there was clearly a kill list by government agents as to who was to be targeted and at the top of the list was none other than Cliven Bundy. On Friday, I reported on a letter from Bureau of Land Management agent Larry Wooten, and Washington State Rep. Matt Shea's comments regarding...
  • Top gun rights priority prospects dim, even in GOP-controlled Washington

    Gun rights activists spent record amounts last year to elect Republicans — but aren’t likely to get their biggest wish, nationwide concealed carry legislation, approved before the 2018 elections. Activists are blaming the Republicans they help put in power — as well as Democrats — for the lack of action on the gun lobby’s number one legislative priority. “The gun rights community does not appreciate the fact that reciprocity languished for so long, and then following two tragic shootings, it seems the first initial response from some in the GOP was, ‘We need additional gun control,’ aka the NICS fix,”...

    Project Republic Today ^ | 12/14/2017 | Benjamin DeLisi
    A local news radio channel in Arizona ran a fluff piece on a family that is in transition — as in, the entire family, including the two young children, are all transgender. Daniel Harrot, the “father” of the family, is a 41-year-old biological female who identifies as a male. “It feels like you’re getting to live for the first time,” Daniel told KJZZ. “And my children are getting to be who they’ve always wanted to be.” Daniel’s daughter Mason, an 11-year-old biological female, identifies as a boy. And his son Josh, a 13-year-old biological male, identifies as a girl. Confused...

    I don't understand why prescription medicine is allowed to advertise on TV or why anyone would think of trying one of the medicines after listening to the laundry list of warnings of possible side effects. Suppose the Food and Drug Administration expanded their domain and regulated the wine business. Here’s a possible outcome of that control. ============================== ====== - Do you have feelings  of inadequacy? - Do you suffer from shyness? - Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive? - Do you sometimes feel stressed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist...
  • Created Male and Female: An Open Letter from Religious Leaders

    12/16/2017 10:59:28 AM PST · by iowamark · 11 replies
    Dear Friends: As leaders of various communities of faith throughout the United States, many of us came together in the past to affirm our commitment to marriage as the union of one man and one woman and as the foundation of society. We reiterate that natural marriage continues to be invaluable to American society. We come together to join our voices on a more fundamental precept of our shared existence, namely, that human beings are male or female and that the socio-cultural reality of gender cannot be separated from one's sex as male or female. We acknowledge and affirm that...

    The American Interest ^ | 12/15/2017 | Larry Diamond
    As authoritarian states like China double down on strategic investments and project their “sharp power” abroad, the United States may finally be reaching a new Sputnik moment. It takes a pretty big shock to the system to transform the way the United States engages the world. A spate of German submarine attacks on American merchant ships was the final trigger for American entry into World War I. Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor brought America into World War II. The attacks on September 11 led the United States to invade Afghanistan and then Iraq.More relevant to the current moment was the...

    In the view of leftists like Joy Reid and the sort of people she invites on her show, criticizing special counsel Robert Mueller is a fireable offense, a virtual crime against the state. On Reid’s MSNBC show today, after clips were played of Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and Jeannine Pirro criticizing Mueller and his associates, former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman said the Fox News hosts “ought to be fired for trying to undermine our legal and justice system.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
