    Sometimes that turns out to be true. Worms do turn, if rarely. Still, the person who says it usually expects it to be a lie.
    Nothing never happens! Something always does.
    Anything used to happen only rarely, but it's happening more frequently. Could be the weather....

    If you do not vote, you have no right to complain.


    1st, we ALWAYS have the right to complain. Period. No ifs, ands or buts.
    2nd, if someone is convinced that the system & process is rigged against them & is not working for the common people & they choose to not participate in being sheep led to the slaughter, that does not mean they do not care what happens or that they are participating in some other agenda.
    I am not going to write a book here but the simple fact that someone who gets less of the popular vote becomes President is overwhelming proof that your vote does not matter.
    Then there is the coincidence that it seems to be Rebublicans who win that way when it is their turn. Democats & Republicrans take turns having a President. This is frigging obvious to anyone with any damn sense.
    Face reality. Accept it and/or try to do something about it. Simply continuing to participate in the farce does not accomplish anything.
    3rd, the people who mindlessly kneejerking say such have no way to know what a person who does not vote does do to try to improve government & society.

    "Cute as a bug"

    I thought it was "cute as a button", which sounds dumber, since many bugs are very attractive and most buttons are boring.

    This item was $100 last week

    Now on sale for $70 so buy now and

    you save $30

    No no no - you spend $70, 2½ times what you say would be saved

    The $100 had just over 3 $30 units you had already had saved

    Never see a sign alongside the item which says "Don't buy this item and save ALL the money you have at the moment"

    And if you only have $70 and buy the item - where is the $30 I saved?

    It helps to have knees that bend the other way. The opposable thumb in't our only advantage.

    We have a new series of anti-impaired-driving messages on TV; one of them has a police officer saying, "Drinking and driving is not an option."

    Unfortunately, all too often it is.

    Reminds me of, "Failure is not an option." Usually it is, despite wishful thinking.

    "Failure is not an acceptable option", that works. Shortening up sound advice turns it into babble.
