  1. Great convo! Covered a lot of ground. I was looking forward to this one. It was tough, tho…hour & a half. Ya’ killin’ me.

    What is going on with your job, Coffee? And, what blogs have you been kicked off of?

    1. You mentioned the energy crisis during the Carter Admin. (I made notes). The cars did get smaller starting around 1977. The Japanese wanted to break into our market so badly that the old Datsuns and Hondas from back then were hard to kill. I had a couple of mechanics tell me that. You mentioned VW beetles. They’d been around since the 60s, tho, they grew in popularity with downsizing. I miss my 1985 Toyota Celica.

    2.Y’all mentioned kids in school and their writing skills. They don’t learn penmanship anymore…can’t sign their names. Many of them can’t read cursive.

    3. The penalty for not signing up for Obamacare was removed by Trump via Exec. Order. I never signed up and I never paid a penalty. Not interested.

    4. Henry the VIII. He wanted to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon and created the Church of England (Protestantism) to side step the Catholic Church. Then, (Bloody) Mary I tried to go back to Catholicism and Elizabeth I went back to Protestantism, each woman whip-lashing the kingdom.

    5. I agree with the remark you made about automation & workers. If there is too much automation and/or robots and/or AI, who will be left to be able to buy anything. Henry Ford knew that. He wanted his workers to make a fair wage so they could buy the very vehicles they were building.

    6. Excellent point on pollution and the companies not being held accountable. It reminds me of this:

    7. I would have to disagree with you on reading the bible. Which one? KJV? Gideon? New Revised American version? Catholic, with different chapters? The translations between Greek and Latin fubared much of the information. Some things don’t translate.

    8. Liked your death book idea.

    When I blog, I get eye-rolls from Ken, too.

      Nothing I did at my job, more or less the leadership. I guess they may have pissed some people off so maybe their contract will be suspended.

      A few conservative blogs, I cannot remember the names of them anymore. But believe it or not…it’s not just the libtards that are sycophants!

      1. I’m sorry. I hope you can shift gears easily.

        What? You had the audacity to show up, speak some truth & rattle cages? How dare you. There are narrow-minded retards on both sides, more interested in being on “the winning side” than entertaining some common sense.

        That can’t block you from reading but, they can prevent your comments from being published. Is that what they did?

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Yes, they blocked my commentary. Word to the wise, never bring up Reagan or trump when discussing how horrible the other side is when it comes to gun control!!!

  2. Are you being proactive and looking for a different gig, Coffee?

    BS has a good voice, too.

    The bar with a stock-based menu sounds really cool.

    IPAs are terrible. I’m with you on that.

    I am AI. Fear not.

    Coffee, you seem to be rather optimistic about most things.

    Like Vic said, cursive is a problem because kids cannot sign their names anymore. They can’t read it, either. BS brings up an interesting study on that topic. You are so right about cashiers and the actual change. I see so many people struggling. You say that we are able to re-learn skills like memorizing phone numbers. Sure. However, the brain is like a muscle. It atrophies if you don’t use it. It would be much harder to go back now.

    Your comment about safety net/ options and freedom was very poignant. Well done.

    BS, I’m not sure if I got that right. Are you saying that in Canada, if you are rich and want to use their money to be seen sooner/ have a procedure sooner, you are unable to do that? Really?

    Are you done with vaping?

    Relaxing convo indeed. I, too, was a bit surprised that BS was so … relaxed.

    1. bottomlesscoffee007

      Meh, 50/50. I think it would be better in the long run if I go back to school full time and become legitimate. We’ll see what happens. I think I am optimistic because I believe the world along with humanity always balances itself out. Sure, I might not be the current winner, but it doesn’t mean that I haven’t won in the past or that I won’t win in the future.

      Never fear Goldie, one day I’ll get my life on track. Dun vaping for now, back to good ole fashion tobacco!

      Thanks for the listen Goldie.

      1. PLEASE. No vaping. People seem to be dropping like flies (news hype…I know…but, still…). We have a local young man that grows his own tobacco with organic practices & makes his own cigarettes. Tobacco has been in use for 100s of years. Vaping? WTF is in it?

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Ha, another EPIDEMIC is on the horizon!

          I was actually thinking about suing Nike for my bad knees. Years of running on hard pavement!

    2. Hi Goldie,
      I didn’t see this comment until just now.

      In Canada if you are super rich, you still have to wait your turn. Depending on the procedure you might be able to go to a private clinic and pay out of pocket. Or if you really want to pay for it you can go to the U.S.

      On the flip side, if you are poor you don’t have to worry. Having a baby is free. Breaking your leg is free, etc.

      Prescription drugs are paid for by an insurance plan or out of pocket. Elective procedures like laser eye surgery or cosmetic surgery are not covered under the government plan.

      I have not experienced the alternative to our system, but I feel like it has worked well for most people I know.
