OK, so I'll admit it..........

There are some things that I?m really slow in picking up on.

One of these things is ?the Why? the US Congress continuously points fingers and places blame for high prices on big businesses, such as the Petroleum Industry; the Pharmaceutical Industry, and the Medical and Health Care Industry, among others, and never seems to develop a solution.

Yeah, I?m slow, but I?ve figured out ?the why? on this one.

Simple ! Obvious ! Duh !

The Congress, whose work product always operates at a deficit - in the red - and in reality, is designed to do so. Simply stated, expenses exceed revenue.

The Congress, comprised of career politicians, many of them attorneys, and others, who have no real world business experience.

The Congress, a group of individuals who have absolutely no comprehension why businesses in the private sector cannot also operate at a deficit.

The Congress, a group of over-compensated individuals collecting a pay check, including an extravagant benefit portfolio.

The worst part of this scenario ? We elected, and too often, re-elected them ! What were we thinking ?

So????.. where does the blame really belong ?

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?
