The Earth will continue on for a few more billion years, just without humans and any other collateral losses we caused to wildlife.

Just wondering if any of you here have health insurance coverage for your cat(s)/pets?
Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 13, 2021:
Just be careful if you purchase some. I never looked into it as I just never did. A friend of mine wanted to get it when he got his old lab, long ago. The reason was quite simple, many labs have a congenital problem, and unfortunately for him,, that was not covered (why he wanted it). When I was married and my ex decided to breed cats, it probably would have been worthwhile. (Didn't make any money on that venture, but we broke even and got some wonderful cats as pets Most of the kittens that we sold were at half price to friends - Ocicats are really sweet and cute).

When I was in the Navy, my immediate boss and the guy who trained me to do well at my job loved "her music, not her politics." He was an odd guy, but I remember him fondly. He also loved John Phillips Souza. I found out, not from him, that he was blacklisted from making Chief for many years. His crime - having morals and playing by the rules. I worked in Naval intelligence. One of our jobs, during a war, was to assess damages from our attacks, as well as look for targets. He was one of the first people to report that the US was bombing hospitals in Hanoi, Vietnam. He was asked to pull his report, but said no, that is what he saw and sent it up the chain-of-command. He never went outside of the Navy. However, some Congressman got ahold of the report; again he had done nothing more than his job, report what he saw. Thus, the powers to be couldn't punish him, aside from just conveniently not promoting him.

The guy said, yep, that's what always breaks after 10 or so years and few people replace them. I thought, geez, a metal one would let that sucker run for a couple decades or so. So, I replaced it and it ran great. Still running 8 years later when I divorced.

The cops wanting to open it needs a warrant. Why does the phone need to be opened in such a case is an open question that, if I were a judge, would want to know why. Opening that phone shouldn't be needed. Phones should need a warrant, even if found at the scene of a crime.

As far as my opinion rests, I think the unvaxxed should pay higher premiums for health insurance at the very least, very very least. I've been watching the military as they take on vaccinating all members. Some republicans in Congress want to grant those kicked out Honorable discharges. That's ridiculous. Few, if any, will get dishonorable discharges. I have already seen that the Navy is planning, for the most part, on doing general or administrative discharges and thus, those folks kicked out could reenlist at their same rank if and when they comply.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Nov 5, 2021:
Not wanting to die, at the moment of death is a pretty universal trait among all animals. Humans, and possibly a few other species, have the ability to look ahead and recognize it is inevitable. Choosing to live for some imaginary being, for "comfort," is a sad way to live. Hey, maybe there is more to life, after death. I doubt it; I see no evidence; science seems to indicate a destruction of the entire universe at some time. I liked Koko the gorilla's response to what is death - darkness, just darkness. I would rather live life the best I can with the limited means I have, and not be beholden to some imaginary figure or said figure's totally assholed followers.
