Protecting a pocket watch

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nathanael Aug 3, 2010. 11 Replies

I have a very nice antique pocket watch that I'm fond of (it was an anniversary gift, so it has sentimental value in addition to being a cool watch).  It is open-faced, that is, it lacks the hinged…Continue

Hey Nathanael, I applaud you for standing up for what's right (especially in regard to your posts in the thread about how one would react if their child came out as gay).  Keep the faith!

Sorry, didn't mean to offend with the great divide post.  It's just the antagonism between the parties has become rabid, down here in Texas, and, frankly, I am getting sick of it.  I think it's mostly media driven, but I wanted to hear what others thought, and, maybe, begin some rapprochement.  I've removed the discussion.

Salary on Politicians?

One can state that, for offices of government, that the Salary be no more than the poverty line. After all, politicians are public servants, not a job for money.

But then it can double back - what then do they do that politicians do not. Or, even, have a Pay grade system for the Politicians - save the fact…See More
