Re: Politics

Trump told them they better pass something on immigration because videos of crying babies was killing them, politically. Not him, though.

He's probably right. He can't be hurt politically because he's not a career politician. I still doubt that he'll run for re-election.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

If you like barbecued ribs, this could be a great summer for you. If you raise the pigs, you may be eating more barbecued beans. I should be fine, then. I think we all agree that's the most important thing, I don't usually barbecue ribs, though. The Crock Pot recipe is fool-proof and the meat liter...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

Any chance I could score a bargain on a coastal villa? I'd be willing to go 50 cents on the dollar. And I'll spring for their moving expense.

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

You're probably right about Americans passing the civics test if people took it cold, but people applying for citizenship don't take it cold. There''s a list of 100 questions you get ahead of time, you're asked 10 questions from the list and you only have to get 6 right. Once you've passed, there's ...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

The Portuguese aren't pushovers like we are. You have to live in Portugal for six years before you can even apply for citizenship and you have to pass a test indicating you have sufficient knowledge of the language. Está frio lá fora.

It's mostly B&W's fault. He's the reason we can't have nice things.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

I had the Nationals-Yankees game on last night and Bryce Harper looked totally lost at the plate. I know he has a lot of HRs and RBIs, but his BA is rapidly approaching the Mendoza Line.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I just bought a new Weber grill in early June. It has a grease trap underneath it that is not located in any kind of housing. II bought a Weber gas grill a few years ago and the grease trap (and propane tank) are contained in a cabinet with a door. Perhaps there's an opening in the back I didn't no...

Re: The Ongoing New Financial Era Thread

That massive oak tree is history, BTW. A lightening strike ravaged it and a subsequent storm finished it off. I wonder how many people have traveled to Buxton over the years to look for it, only to discover that the scene was actually filmed in Ohio.
