    Huckabee Compares Trump to Churchill

    A quarter million casualties to take the city. I've always figured that was the real reason they left Berlin to Stalin.

    Peace in Korea. Nobel prize for Trump.

    You right wingers really don't understand the distinction between hope and expectation do you?

    Serious question

    There is the essential problem with American politics. You don't even know what "left" is. Nowadays Eisenhower would be "too far left".
  4. Except any changes are just "feel good measures" As long as people are being killed by anything other than guns then no changes should be made to the gun laws.
  5. The NRA? The gun manufacturers? The majority of gun nutterz?
  6. I doubt the Mutt can really grasp that distinction.

    Swimming Pool kills Toddler

    We always had very nice properties. The problem was the tenants. I'd guess that maybe 20% of them were great - the rest were varying degrees of asshole. We never had a true nightmare like you sometimes hear about but enough problems that we cut down to just our Okanagan house with a family friend renting it, basically for expenses and tax writeoffs while we let it appreciate. My wife spent a lot of her life interviewing people for credit and investments and I interviewed hundreds of job applicants over the years so it's not like we were rookies at scoping people out. It's all about the majority of the kind of people who rent. Kind of like the people who want the owner to finance the sale of his boat.

    The NFL Tells Trump to Shut Up

    I agree but as the old saying goes - in a democracy you get the government you deserve. America must have really fucked up somewhere along the line to deserve this.

    Not OEM Tires

    Some exotic cars have specific tire characteristics dialed into their suspension tune but for the most part it's only hyper-exotics and they have the tires specially designed & built for them. Lambo's and the like. Otherwise, read a bunch of the comments online about tires on your specific car. I don't know if they even still make them but the best tires I ever had were on my '87 Corvette - Goodyear F1 Supercars. They had that chevron style tread direct from F1 rain tires and they were unbelievable - could go through deep standing water at warp speed and the steering wouldn't even twitch. Had to make zero allowance for wet conditions.

    Cat People

    Best cat lady cartoon I ever saw was a woman at her front door with a herd of cats saying "we heard you're single and just turned 40"

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Has to make lengthy stops at the Pitt bridge and Langley before it gets to Mission. I'd say it's going to make it though. What a beastly POS.

    The Best. The London Sessions with all the rock greats is an all timer. Listening to the interplay is fascinating - people like Clapton are like students in class to his teacher.

    I've seen that commie, pinko, leftie bilge before. No real Republican would stand for that shit.

    Wasn't the teacher armed FFS?

    The NFL Tells Trump to Shut Up

    First part of that is absolutely true. Unfortunately the second part is not entirely so. There has always been a small but significant core of fascist or at least authoritarian tendency in the States. They have found a real home with Trump.

    I know what you're saying but still - think about that statement for a minute.

    Just Another High School Shooting

    Sorry but your pitiful offerings don't rub anyone's face in anything - well except their palms.
  22. Using 5200 it works better if it's inflated. The goo holds everything in place so no clamping is needed. When I stuck the rub strip back down it was only loose in spots so I deflated it, cleaned out underneath the strip, squeezed in 5200 and inflated it tight.
