We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This is more lunacy on the left. It's clear that none of these bozos lived in the '50s or knows anything about that time (I was going to say beyond Happy Days or the Christmas Story but they probably don't even know anything about them either). These people are ignorant of history which is one of the reasons they come up with these bone-headed ideas.
It's also obvious they don't know who George Santayana is or what he said.
One thing I never cared about (really) was Bill or any politician getting a little on the side. Between her, the pol, and the Daily Mail. If it makes them happy, looser, and at rock bottom, its time the politician isn't spending screwing us! It's lying about it that is a no-no. Really it should be included in the daily press briefing for the WH. Of course in that case I'd expect a little "exaggeration" of the Presidential performance. No, I can't go there.
Sam Kinnison had a routine about sex and politicians, can't find it but it fits.
Pithy is good but a little more description would not be amiss.
I thought this might be a gag video but it turned out to be a depressing commercial for a TV show. My only reference to Satisfaction comes from The Stones. I do not think of a cable network when I see USA.
The power of dust, remember a bit of powder taken from caps, a handful of tossed flour and a match. The eyebrows did grow back eventually.
Top 10 items you're too old to wear. Might make a good post. For men, skinny jeans, visible wife beaters after age 22 (or so), visible neck chains after age 24 (unless worn with a cassock) and so on. Then there are things you should wear after say age 50, trousers with elastic waist bands (don't want to disappoint good cooks), etc.
Interesting that you apparently created a small scale grain dust fire, Walt. The cap powder was unnecessary. Just grain dust mixed with air combined with an ignition source will do the trick. Combine it with a confined space and you get a huge explosion to go with the fire.
I agree with Ian McKellen. Actors should have 75% of their wages confiscated by their union to provide for less fortunate actors who can’t command multi-million dollar wages.
Everyone who declares their profession to be acting while struggling as a waiter or pizza delivery driver (for example) should be able to withdraw funds from the actor’s compensation bank until their wages reach the level of living wage.
