This was the second post on Ratburger.org.   On 2017-12-23, I re-purposed it to be a sand box for testing things related to posting and commenting on posts.  By using an old post, I avoid having it pop to the top of the page.  I  also made it private so only logged-in users may see it.

And some red text.

This is a blockquote with some italic text within it.

And now I will include a multi-paragraph block quote.

Well, first of all, I don’t believe I ever spoke out against it. I said this, it was just from—since I have never made a deep study of this thing, because what was the use—from my viewpoint, I said I thought on balance it was an unwise amendment. However, there were so many people whose fears are very real that somebody who would get a hold of the kind of military force we now have, get a hold of it and use it as an instrument of establishment of centralized or dictatorship form of government, I would think that—I could argue pretty well on either side of this one.

Now, let me point this out. Our whole history, from 1900—from the beginning, from 1787 until 1953, has been one of almost defenselessness in military forces. … Now, even after World War II, we found this same trend had started in, and it started, not as just a matter of congressional economy or of the executive’s economy, it’s what America felt. We hoped that the United Nations were going to solve our problems, so that this policy, this political policy that you ask about, I think has been sort of a concomitant with our military policy, because everybody knew there wasn’t enough military, really, to go into control of the country. Now, this is no longer true, and it might alter thinking. The answer to your last question is no.

— Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Didn’t know.  Didn’t care.  Haven’t renewed my Hertz Gold membership because they won’t take debit cards any more.  I have no credit cards, not for several years now, so I’m rather ticked off at Hertz.

    This is off topic but I put up a video a while back that explained that debit cards were dangerous compared to credit cards. I was surprised because I thought the opposite. It was from Frank Abagnale Jr. His story was made famous in “Catch Me If You Can”. He later worked with the FBI to stop bad check writing.

    Here is the post.

    This is why I use a credit card to pay for (almost) everything. I never use my debit card except when doing business at the bank—too risky.
