"U.S. Government property ? Commercial resale is unlawful."

If they label these MREs as unlawful for resale I assume the label is accurate.

"""Additionally, Durzy said, eBay has asked the Pentagon to cite the law that would prohibits the sale of its MREs, but has not gotten an answer.
"When we asked them to show us a law to show it is unlawful, and they were unable to do so, we said they're legal as far as we're concerned," Durzy said."""

a self serving attitude if I ever saw one. Then again I've quit dealing with Ebay. I've seen too many items sell for more then original retail.

Wouldn't you be surprised if it hadn't happened sooner or later?

People, you know.

But it's not the only thing that happens

Starving people get fed, thirsty people get water; sick people get treated; old people get taken care of; shivering people get warmed, children get schooled, desolate people get comforted.

Ummm, sounds like Matthew 25: I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
