    It is Nothreat2u’s birthday today.

    I raise a glass of neat Don Julio! I’m sure that she is enjoying the current politics immensely.

      3.5 GDP…the drag from imports was almost 2%.

      1.6 inflation…good job FED. Get rates close to 4 and we are reloaded for the next recession.

      My former HS is going to have their first football conference championship in 41 years after tonight’s game. There will be Zambelli fireworks.They will be more or less going off in my back yard! Big stuff, and Zambelli are THE masters of pyrotechnics.

      The last championship had Jimbo Covert on that team…hall of Famer and career Chicago Bears lineman.
      He has a great golf outing at my CC every year.

      As an outsider with no interest in politics It was sad to see so many people left this place due to political differences.

      A casual post.

      Do not Google or Facebook search people from a previous life.

      Many are dead, some are cancer survivors ( sort of, I do not think anyone survives, just postpones the inevitable ) and one ex work mate just had a hemorrhagic stroke.

      He is about a year older than me.

      “he can very slightly open his eyes with some assistance.”

      Getting yet another beer out of the fridge…..

      I did that once.

      It was GREAT.

      She looks like she’s been dragged thru a knothole and hung inside out on a clothesline.

      Worth. It.

      funny how that works, those wanna be elitists just couldn’t fathom that the rest of the country finally saw through their perpetual bullshit and in the end called ‘shenanigans’. buzzsaw couldn’t stand up to being disagreed with, it deeply hurt his fragile ego, how dare us peons disagree with such a sagacious bullshit artist. i started seeing through his his act a few years ago but kept it to myself.

      the other wanna be elitists, flyover…lol…he’s a money manager and couldn’t see the reality right in front of him??? glad i didnt have any accounts with that guy. of course his clients are making making money despite his lack of wisdom and fake conservatism.

      the rest of the lost? fuck ’em. trump has done more in 2 years than the rest of their conservative (inc) gop ™ (r) did in 50. results matter, philosophical turd salad, word whoring, and base-whipping doesn’t cut it anymore. the right figured out that they were liars and con-artists and in the end, rejected the lot of ’em, thank christ!

      if i were that wrong and so obnoxious about it, i know damn well i would go back and apologize and beg forgiveness…of course, i was raised differently.

      yes, i called shenanigans.

      Don’t laugh… :/
      Living currently in a “rural” area that’s about 3 kilometers outside of city limits. All the big name internet is either cellular at about $75 CAD for 25 gig’s or same price for 50GB by satellite.

      Paying about $70 for unlimited when it’s not having conniptions and is out.

      you should see the consternation here when the net gets a hiccup for just a few minutes.

      there is howling and gnashing of teeth and an occasional rendered garment!

      @ RIX:
      when i went to PITT i would always sit at the Mike Ditka bench just outside of the Cathedral of Learning. I was on campus yesterday and had a seat there again and smoked a cigar. It was glorious.45 minutes of perfection…a nice cool fall day, the sun was out, the weeks classes were winding down, and there was a touch football game going on on the quad.

      All i was missing was a few pints with Chris Hitchens at the bar.
