Do we even have this thing anymore?

We used to. We still have a chatters group. We used to have a Texas group, a Dallas Fort Worth group, a racing group, a soccer group, a conservatives group, and a Suicide Catholics group. All since folded into other groups.

I still hear rumors of chat.

You might be thinking to yourself "Hey, Scipio, you just want...

I got the call about an hour ago,

DC Police Cops had detained Wendy and Claire outside, and they asked me to come out and escort them in. So I did. that was that. Fried chicken cutlets, by they way.

Claire had gotten what she called "two very heavy ounces." Two kinds, I am told. Low THC Strawberry Jack, and Maximum Human Dosage THC Master...

I feel the same about weed.

Anybody knowledgeable about it?

Yes, I do it, because it is made easy for me. I drink me beer and Coke from cans, because I know aluminium is easy to recycle. My question is do I have to wash out the cans? Or can I just toss them in the bin?

Claire was surprised when she found out. Recycling is so...liberal.

strongbhoy:
Cans are one of the few things that actually work (assuming they don't just dump them like most stuff). The Bullshit episode is pretty good about this.
strongbhoy:
If it's a bin and they take it then there is no harm I guess. The thing I recycle here is cardboard....which there is seemingly an unending supply of in my apartment.

I really do not get this. All right, I understand that they do not like whaling. I can understand their point. Their methods, while extreme and incomprehensible to most, make sense to them. Also, it resulted in one of the funniest episodes of South Park.

What I do not understand is the behavior of the authorities. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled them...

Cinco de Mayo (May 5) is slightly celebrated in the US, less so in Mexico, with the exception of Puebla, where this particular battle was fought between the native Mexicans and the invading French troops, sent to Mexico by Emperor Napoleon III, looking for colonies in North America. On Cinco de Mayo, 1862, about 2,000 Mexican soldiers, seriously outgunned and poorly equipped, defeated 6...

Then, of course, we sent troops in after the Civil War to help eject the French.  I'm of the opinion it would've been folly for Napoleon to invade the US, since (1) the Russian Tsar disdained Napoleon as a jumped up parvenu AND sympathized with the North, and  Bismarck became Prussia's chancellor that year and would've jumped at the opportunity to take the French down a couple of pegs. And I love Mexican food, and would rather build a wall around the Rodeo Clown.  (What are your thoughts on an independent conservative ticket or voting for third party or write-ins?) 
babel:
Thanks for the information! I like learning new things :)

It was not a bad day, really. There is a of of stuff I cannot tell you about at the office right now. It is just politics, jockeying for the best position, that is what I do and what I expect to. Reasonable people can disagree.

I came home and decided to listen to Van Halen, and then Peter Murphy. Watching The Simpsons. Trying to...

True. Though there's been a certain amount of that attitude from the religious right, the left has surpassed them by leaps and bounds.  Now they even want to jail people with different ideas.  Every day, I think a second civil war seems more and more likely.

Tuesday 12 April.

Aisha came home only a few minutes after she left for work. I saved a bit of my breakfast for her, and made sure she had a spoonful or two of eggs, a sausage link and a crisp slice of bacon. I refilled her coffee cup. This all happened with a suitcase in her hand. She told me that she had to...

Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto has replaced Ambassador Miguel Basanez Ebergenyi with Los Angeles Consul General Carlos Sada Solana. Most people missed this, but it is important. Basanez was only a place holder, and Mexico now has the man they want in DC. Basanez often talked or his Armenian heritage, so I am sure the Embassy of Islamic Republic of Turkey is happy.

Pena explained...

It will cost, according the candidate, somewhere around US$3 to 10 billion. That much should buy a really nice wall.

Of course, he wants Mexico to pay for our wall. Nifty.

Since Mexico will not voluntarily pay, and why would anyone, Trump will have to coerce Mexico. His plan is to stop money transfers into Mexico. This is US$25 billion a year into...

I've heard the wall could cost as much as $500 billion (though that figure sounds like an outlier), making Trump's estimates sound like "Bernie Sanders math".  Since more Mexican illegal immigrants are returning home than coming here every year, attacking Mexico makes no sense anyway.  And you're right about Trump being a stalking horse for HRC, he's been playing a long con. 

After a long vacation, it is hard to get back to work.

Kristina is not here, she is off with the Donald. When he loses, he is out organized. So, picking up a veteran hand like Kristina is a good move. Still, he does not seem to have the ground game. It really does not matter. If Trump does not get the nomination, he will...

What's your best guess about what will happen between now and the convention?

Miami is a beautiful city. We should have spent another day there. Also, I have a good friend down there. Nice to knock back a few, or a lot, with him again. He likes that Aisha can drink a lot. He hates women in tattoos, and Aisha now has two full sleeves. Most of her tattoos are patriotic; eagles and quotes from the Founders or...

So, I buy this new computer, becasue I need a new one, and this one has great sound. This is for internet only, it cannot really do anything else. $150. That is the main reason I choose this one.

For a while I am fine, using Microsoft Edge. Then, I cannot, on SG, blog, leave love, tags, comment on sets or threads. I can still...
