  2. Centre City, Philly, is a nice place to visit. I visit often and enjoy myself each time. Has all the amenities of NYC but without the smell and grime :^)
  3. When I purchased my first house, I had the front yard sodded. Kentucky Bluegrass I believe it was. The neighbor came over and told me to take a good look because it will never look like that again. He was right :^) Are we the only nation , maybe beside Canada, that spends so much time, money and effort on grass? :^)
  4. Doesn't it? I hear it's popular in the Southwest
  5. Any Seattle residents here? What''s going on in your neck of the woods? https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/seattle-city-leaders-throw-support-behind-defunding-spd-by-50/SI3Q7B3TL5BONCWYRTRX6MDZLU/ SEATTLE — The majority of Seattle City Council is now backing proposals to defund Seattle’s police department by 50%, despite concerns from Mayor Jenny "Summer of Love" Durkan and Seattle’s police chief that council members are moving too quickly and without enough widespread community engagement.
  6. https://news.osu.edu/when-europeans-were-slaves--research-suggests-white-slavery-was-much-more-common-than-previously-believed/ A new study suggests that a million or more European Christians were enslaved by Muslims in North Africa between 1530 and 1780 – a far greater number than had ever been estimated before. In a new book, Robert Davis, professor of history at Ohio State University, developed a unique methodology to calculate the number of white Christians who were enslaved along Africa’s Barbary Coast, arriving at much higher slave population estimates than any previous studies had found. Most other accounts of slavery along the Barbary coast didn’t try to estimate the number of slaves, or only looked at the number of slaves in particular cities, Davis said. Most previously estimated slave counts have thus tended to be in the thousands, or at most in the tens of thousands. Davis, by contrast, has calculated that between 1 million and 1.25 million European Christians were captured and forced to work in North Africa from the 16th to 18th centuries. So European Christian Whites were enslaved by people of color? Reparations is sounding pretty good right about now :^)
  7. Ever consider artificial turf?
  8. That Natives enslaved Blacks and each other? I'm sure you're aware that even Black Americans owned slaves. No one has a monopoly on immorality
  9. Is so, reparations may be in order https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/native-americans-adopted-slavery-white-settlers-181225180750948.html "Members of five Native American nations, the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole Nations (known as the Five Tribes), owned black slaves. Then located outside the territorial boundaries of the US in a region known as Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma), these sovereign nations were not affected by proclamations or constitutional amendments."
  10. and in front of Trump Tower. Cute. He plans on going to Washington to ask for BILLIONS in bail out money. Would Trump have to approve that? If so, would Trump be the bigger man? :^)
  11. Kudos to Dinkins. Credit where credit is due. Thanks Randy https://www.gothamgazette.com/city/8757-looking-back-at-mayor-david-dinkins-30-years-after-his-historic-1989-win He introduced " Safe Streets, Safe City" which added THOUSANDS of police to the force. Hmmm? National, New York City, and other major city crime rates (1990–2002).[86] True Giuliani governed with a firm hand with his "Broken Windows" policy. Not only crime continue to decrease but people actually felt safer. Remember the squeegee guys? Created traffic issues, intimidated drivers. Hated driving in the city. I always had to make sure i had spare change in the car. I would pay them NOT to smear dirty water on my windshield :^) if that's an example of being harsh to the homeless? Sorry. I and other New Yorkers have rights also
  12. That's why I love condo living. No longer have to deal with this stuff
