re: Not Your Father's - Root beer and ginger ale - Willie Stroker
[quote]Interesting taste for the first sip, couldn't finish it. WAY too sweet. [/quote] This. It was like liquid candy. I do enjoy a boozy dessert, and will also enjoy a nice digestif now and then. But this fell short. If I want sweet booze, I'm going with Drambuie, a tawny port, or a cockta...

re: Jared Fogle's text messages revealed in sentence appeal - Willie Stroker
[quote]As part of his plea deal, Fogle agreed not to seek less than five years in prison and prosecutors agreed not to seek more than 12½ years. ...but didn't he get 15 years[/quote] Clear case of Fogle's attorneys trying to get more money out of him. Even his attorneys know the judge is not...

re: Better Call Saul Season 2 Finale: "Klick" - Willie Stroker
[quote]logisitics don't seem to be possible. For starters someone would have had to tail mike, which based on his background seems he'd be wise to. Next, someone would have to get to the car, leave the note, put the stick in the car on the horn, then disappear all before mike comes back. Mike would ...

re: Ithaca’s Anti-Heroin Plan: Open a Site to Shoot Heroin - Willie Stroker
For areas of rampant heroin abuse I would be open to the idea. There was a time I would have been opposed...until hearing about Seattle's Bunks for Drunks program. It makes me wonder if we should fund something similar for people no one wants in their neighborhood. Haciendas for sex offendahs als...

re: Should politicians be ashamed of being wealthy? - Willie Stroker
[quote]That leaves me to conclude Sanders is incompetent when it comes to economics.[/quote] True. He was puzzled how student loans would carry higher interest rates than home mortgages. How does someone walk the Earth that many years pulling in total compensation of nearly a quarter mil per ...

re: Anyone have a "Jetted Shower" in their home? - Willie Stroker
I've got built ins in 3 of my bathrooms. I love it but don't use it as often in the master because the placement jets against the door, causing water seepage under the door. We'll probably redesign in a few years and fix that. Guests (especially female relatives) love it. ...

re: Parents with Alzheimers? Anyone here dealing with this? - Willie Stroker
My mother has it. We initially moved her to an independent living facility but she never got used to it. She wandered out routinely, so her stay was short lived. We tried having her live with us but that didn't last either. She became incontinent and would resolve it by stripping naked. It was not a...

re: Official Better Call Saul Season 2 Episode 9: "Nailed" - Willie Stroker
[quote]If Gus had to be introduced this early on, it makes sense to be teased in this finale. I figured he'd make an appearance for sure in Season 3 because of the Mike/Hector feud. Not sure how Mike will be introduced to Gus, but we all know that Mike becomes second-in-command in Gus' camp. [/q...

re: Hokie Gajan, beloved former Saints & LSU player, dies at 56 - Willie Stroker
[quote]When you think of toughness, dedication and getting the most out of your talent, if you never saw him play at LSU, think Jacob Hester. [/quote] Great comparison. He was the Hester of his era. Hokie has long been an inductee into my personal Hall of Fame. It's a special honor that he sha...

re: Official Better Call Saul Season 2 Episode 9: "Nailed" - Willie Stroker
[quote] Mike about to put hector in a wheel chair next episode[/quote] If it happens, Mike will probably have an indirect role. Hector's ailment seems to have been portrayed as neurological or degenerative. Vince just showed us an image of Hector displaying signs of poor health. We may be one ...

re: I'm too smart for this board. - Willie Stroker
[quote]He might have lied, and that's debatable given his understanding of "sex", but perjury and lying are not automatically the same.[/quote] So if he lied while under oath, is that not perjury? For it not to be perjury you're suggesting that it would require that Bill Clinton would need to...

re: Wwmtd? Job offer with less pay but more benefits than current job - Willie Stroker
I see a lot of good advice to take the fed job and I agree. The stereotype of punching a time clock and promotions being based on seniority and tenure are not necessarily true. Also take a look at locality pay. Some areas receive larger increases annually based on the competitiveness of the work for...

re: Life in prison for stealing candy bars---not quite as ThinkProgress presents - Willie Stroker
[quote] It's difficult to be recidivist if you're still locked up.[/quote] Of course. But how good are we at distinguishing between those committed to a life of crime and those that just need be taught the basic wisdom of long term decision making? How good are we at incarcerating those that need ...

re: Life in prison for stealing candy bars---not quite as ThinkProgress presents - Willie Stroker
[quote]I wonder why he steals. If that was discovered, he could be rehabilitated instead of reincarcerated. [/quote] You might be interested in researching "criminogenic needs". It helps explain why two people faced with the same circumstances or "hardship" choose very divergent courses of actio...

re: Life in prison for stealing candy bars---not quite as ThinkProgress presents - Willie Stroker
[quote]These are why crime has been on the decline for 15-20 years. Believe it or not, crime was a major issue during the 1988 presidential election. [/quote] Such a conclusion can only be reached if you limit the scrutiny to correlation between the two data elements. The US Sentencing Commissio...

re: Life in prison for stealing candy bars---not quite as ThinkProgress presents - Willie Stroker
Of course sentences should vary based on different circumstances of the offense and various factors involving the offender's history. Of course repeat offenders should receive harsher penalties than first time offenders. But these mandatory minimums are hardcore stupid to the bone. They were enac...
