You're lucky. At least that works for you. My phone rarely syncs with my Ford's Sync system at all. Meanwhile, in my Kia Sedona, I have no problems ever. In the Ford Fusion, I just use a wire into the headphone jack because BT is usually too much trouble.

As far as being a car goes, I like my Ford Fusion fine, so this is a minor annoyance in general. I'm only (sort of) joking when I say the Fusion is built entirely out of blind spots.

Donald Trump made the assumption that Lester Holt, the NBC moderator for the first debate, was a Democrat. Holt is actually a registered Republican.

Doesn't matter how he's registered... he was clearly pulling for Clinton with his constant interruptions of Trump, to the point where he was flat-out arguing with him. Holt did nothing of the sort with Clinton. He wasn't a moderator, he was a participant.

even an hour-long special about the eighties with a grossly-disproportionate segment right at the end about Ray Parker Jr. and the original *Ghostbusters Theme* ...which is about 3 times the amount of time spent actually writing the original "Ghostbusters" theme, as recounted by Ray Parker, Jr.

By the way, love the signature. I get that feeling often.

I am about as conservative as they come, but since I also try to apply Christian principles to my thinking, I get accused of being a liberal on occasion. One of the most amusing was when I criticized the repulsive treatment Rush Limbaugh gave Sandra Fluke. Don't get me wrong. I think she's an idiot, but Limbaugh was sickening about it. I guess holding all people to the same standard isn't common among people any kind of politics.

But more often, I get people automatically attributing bad stereotypical beliefs to me that simply don't apply. It would be nice to be judged based on your actual words and actions than the knee-jerk pigeonholing that almost everyone does. People who do argue with me seldom actually respond to what I say, but respond to the evil, racist, ignorant, redneck, stereotype strawman so beloved by the Left. It's really pathetic.
