Why would you want that?
Second, I don't have an issue with that exactly. It's more like when I press the unlock button 3-4 times to unlock the back door when I'm carrying something. I come to the car and for some reason it didn't unlock all doors.
Sounds like you need a new battery in your remote.

Having to click more then once on a car remote to unlock all car doors. Why do they program it like that?
So that if you wish you can open the driver door without the rest of them.

So the jury is deliberating and Trump is praising the defendant. The defense lawyer is thanking Trump for his support. The right see no problem with it. Is the right the new left?
I should hope the judge made sure the jury doesn't see this garbage. It may be grounds for Manafort to appeal if he is convicted.

He wants to say the MSM is liars. He is part of that media so I guess he is a liar just like Hannity.
He makes a good case for it right there in that article.

He is getting more like Hannity by the day.
He has not changed his tune one iota. Maybe look in the mirror as you have become more like @ChaimMaddow

Trip Reports / Re: Mini Trip- Mini Report on Newport

How’d you pull that off ? :)
My family question for aygart is: How old's the oldest? Do you have girls on top?
With the right answers, leaving for 2 days and a night becomes easier.
(And you hope they don't kill each other.)
Looks like IY”H one day Dan will be coming to me for travel advice once he has a large family himself :P
I do have a girl on the top who is 19. That helped a lot, but she has a job and her availability was limited to outside business hours. The next 3 were in camp. All of the younger ones were in camp/playgroup starting at 9:30 with the youngest coming home at 2 and then staggered until around 5:00. Once my daughter came home from work she took over until the youngest were in bed. We needed someone to be in charge in the morning, give them breakfast, get the  kids out to camp, pick the younger ones up and watch them and give them supper.

BTW, 12 is including my wife and I.

Trip Reports / Mini Trip- Mini Report on Newport
« on: August 17, 2018, 12:05:53 PM »
 With a large family of 12 it is not so easy for my wife and I to go away by ourselves. So when an opportunity arose to have someone available to take care of the kids so we can go away for a short trip we grabbed it! Unfortunately, we were only able to get 2 days and one night, earning a mazel tov from @davidrotts63  and a LOL from @Dan who could not even figure out why we would do more than going to a nearby hotel for the night. Looks like IY”H one day Dan will be coming to me for travel advice once he has a large family himself :P
 
Being that we only had a short amount of time, we were limited in how far we could go. Further complicating things, the weather forecast for the two available days was for thunderstorms covering much of the region. The type of place we were looking for was one where we could spend time outdoors and walk around in a nice relaxing nature oriented setting. After narrowing things down, we ended up choosing to go to Newport, RI.
 
Our first stop on the way in was at the John H. Chafee Nature Preserve for no reason other than that we were passing it anyhow. The park consists of a trail to the bay and along the water.





We walked straight, but in hindsight, you are probably best off taking the left turn and getting along the peninsula. It is a pretty basic walk to the shore. The shore itself is beautiful of course but we would skip that if we would be doing it over. One nice fringe benefit from having gone there was that along the way I noticed a bird (I think it is a gray catbird based on Merlin) bringing food to its nest and took the opportunity to be makeyem shiluach haken.





It struck us how wherever you go the shore is full of seashells at the high water line.








From there we drove over to the hotel. We chose the Wyndham Onshore. It is a timeshare property operated by Wyndham of only suites with full kitchens. We ended up with a 2 bedroom suite. They are closing for renovations over the winter and can definitely use it. The rooms are clean and nice but outdated and tired.










The location, on the other hand is probably from the best of all hotels in Newport. It is on the water and the building we were in was is actually a part of the marina with a nice balcony overlooking the bay. Once they remodel it should be a great hotel.












By then it was getting close to mincha time so we just went walking aroung the harbor until mincha and then went to daven in Touro Synagogue. There are enough pictures around of touro which are much better than anything I took so I will leave those out. After mariv we went to buy some grilling supplies, grilled supper, ate, and called it a day.
To be continued….

You've been there all different days of the week? Not just Sunday-Tuesday?
Ummm, he wrote on Thursday night that he went that night?

11
He is actually pro US and has proved it with his service. Something our draft dodging president has not done.
Are you trying to say that those are contradictory?

12
Maybe if he spent more time here he would know not to open a new thread for this when there are several threads he could have asked this question in.
There are nicer ways to tell him that than the sarcasm.

14
Unless it says on the tape.
I think you missed the words "without that"

15
AFAIK there is no rule/law/protocol that states you are anti-American if you don't stand. Please enlighten me if there is.

I don't think even Trump is stupid enough to try and label this girl as anti-American. IMHO a draft dodger is about as anti-American as it gets.  ;)
Don't forget that you are speaking to people who did not live through the draft.
