    The intelligence said that there WERE NO ****ING WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRUCTION IN ****ING IRAQ YOU NUMBSKULL. Yet your boy, the idiot from Texas, took us there. For our brave soldiers to die. For nothing. He knew there was nothing and yet he still sent kids to die. How about that?

    Obama had a failed presidency despite: Saving both the American auto industry and the American economy pulling us out of the greatest recession since the Great Depressiom and by extension saved the world from a potential global economic crisis Changed health care in this country forever and brought affordable healthcare to 20+ million additional people captured and killed Bin Laden Pioneered America’s global leadership in renewable energy sources and climate change initiatives to save the planet Helped push same sex marriage rights into law and allowed gays to openly serve in military improved Americans image, standing and relationships across the world Passed a ridiculous number of consumer protections laws and programs such a net neutrality, Wall Street reform, housing market/financing reform etc I could keep going. And he all did all that despite having a Congress actively working against him and refusing everything he tried to do for 6 of his 8 years. Imagine what he could have done with any normal congress that actually wanted to help Americans instead of the BS Republicans he was stuck with Despite that, despite the fact that he dealt daily with racism against him and had his legitimacy as an american, much less a president called into question for years, he never acted as anything less that grace and class. Never had any scandals (real not Fox News scandals like tan suits) and was by all accounts a loving and devoted father and husband. He was an inspiring and unifying global leader not just an American one. easily the best president of my lifetime (born in 86) and most people’s lifetime on here as well. Second best would easily be Bill Pullman from Independence Day.

    Who cares about trumps base. They are what they are and will vote how they vote. We don’t need them, don’t need to understand them, and don’t need to figure out why they’re so ****ing ignorant and lacking in character. Im tired of people walking around on eggshells for these troglodytes. Stop being scared or worried about these people, you’re giving them way more power and importance and attention than they deserve. If the dems keep getting boots on the ground and actually talk to people while keeping the politics local we’ll have a shot at getting enough to turnout to vote.

    Well it finally happened, my staunch Republican Faux News consuming unwaivering Trump supporting mother-in-law is right now on the phone with my wife saying that she FINALLY niw believes that Trump has been bought/compromised by Putin. First Joe Walsh, then the Ohio dude, now my mother-in-law. It’s official, Trump is being abandoned at all levels of the Republican party.

    I watched the moonwalk from the Wright Brothers Kitty Hawk sight. I was camping with my friend at Oregon Inlet, celebrating our HS graduation. We rented a popup camper and drove down to NC. The National Park people came around to campers and said that they were setting up TVs to broadcast the moonwalk. So I witnessed the moonwalk from the sight of the first flight of the Wright Brothers. It was pretty special and something I always remember.

    I will say that as a conservative (does not mean Republican) I will be taking a hard look at the Dems running in the mid-term. I will NOT vote for a Dem that I whole-heartedly disagree with on a majority of their positions. But a Dem candidate will be given a LOT longer leash on what I'm willing to put up with. For this cycle, they don't need to earn my vote. They just need to not lose my vote. I want Dem control of Congress after this mid-term.

    Two pictures of The Dude I just took today. First one, the angle makes him look fat, but he's not, he's actually slim and fit. Just all his hair is growing back in. Second one is a better one. He's right at 40 lbs now, shouldn't get much bigger, maybe 45 lbs. It's time to take him back to the groomer for a second summer haircut. I told the wife I want them to leave that huge bushy mustache this time and buzz down the rest. So he looks Wyatt Earp or Sam Eliot.

    Done. Competition style. Memphis rub, smoked 3 hrs, wrapped in foil w/butter, brown sugar, drizzle of honey, splash of apple juice,for 2 hours, removed from foil, lightly sauced and smoked for another hour. Beans are basic, mustard, brown sugar, catsup, chipotle Tabasco, a dash of the rub, sweated some onions and garlic, added those in. Used sugar maple and smoked at 230° for 6 hrs....

    So I attempted to restring the shoulder and found that to be a struggle, so I propped it up on the grates and it was a uniform shape. Ended up taking 10 hours at 225 for 5 lbs. I wrapped in foil but couldn’t wait it out more than an hour due to it taking so long. But it ended up delicious and I paired it with a Carolina vinegar sauce I made up last night. Can’t beat it for 8 Bucks.

    Trump's base gets fed off of anything. Shoot, if they just drove a truck with a picture of a smiling Obama and his speeches being said on a loudspeaker through areas that would probably rile Trump voters up as much as anything. The secret is that they're ALWAYS riled up. They're basically the Hulk in Avengers I. What they are really saying is "this will be used as an excuse to vote for Trump while not taking personal responsibility for my vote, by saying that I'm voting AGAINST antifa/ms-13/illegals/Hillary/black panthers/etc." "I don't like Trump but what choice did I have?" That is the entire civility debate in a nutshell. It's cover to vote FOR Trump while pretending you're voting AGAINST something else.

    Last week there was like a three day window in between any children being taken from their parents and the latest round of Mueller indictments and the right wingers were in here all like, "The left has jumped the shark!" and "The left is worse and it's not even close!!". This week the President committed treason on a world stage and two days later the entire GOP is back to doing everything they can to keep people from finding out what the **** is going on or to keep Russia from attacking us in the future. At this point, "Republican" treachery and scumbaggery is just business as usual but people will come up with excuses like, "Well since the left plays identity politics I have to vote for the party that sells out the country and also plays identity politics." or "A small group of people in one party is going after the traitor's liquor license so I have to vote for the party who, as a whole, is beholden to and supportive of the administration that when called upon to request the extradition of 12 spies who were indicted as part of an attack on our country, responded instead by giving serious consideration to handing over a former U.S. diplomat to the country who was and is attacking us. Seems to me the "resistance" needs to ramp it up.

    The question was raised as to why the indictments were made before the meeting. Maybe it was to prove where Trump's loyalties lie.

    No, he didn't say that in Minnesota he is a seven year vet . he said "Here, I'm known as the starting quarterback and a seven-year veteran," Cousins says. "So I'm instantly given a platform and place to lead from. In Washington, I was a fourth-round pick. I was a guy who had been benched. I was a guy who was figuring it out. I was a guy with the franchise tag. So the perception can be different." Perception clearly can be different. to me he clearly says that in MN he is seen instantly as a leader.. who has been GIVEN a platform from which to lead. He also clearly says in DC all he was seen as is a 4th round pick. What, his coach demanding him to be his starter isn't GIVING him a platform from which to lead? He wasn't known as the starting QB here? Once he was handed the job, was anyone ever a threat to take it from him? Was he ever looking over his shoulder at anyone once he was named the starter? His coach risking his own reputation to elevate him does not erase the status of a 4th round pick who was benched and figuring it out? (nevermind he actually WAS a QB figuring it out.) he says "i'm the guy with thr franchise tag" as if he doesn't understand what that means. (But he does, because prior to that comment he mentions how much money he made. They don't just give that to people they consider chumps.) Somehow he ignores all of that. Somehow he sees himself as somehow victimized by the fact that he WAS a young QB figuring it out and that his coach had backed him 100%, and HANDED him that platform? "Kirk Cousins is our starting QB going forward. Next question" is what i seem to recall hearing out of Gruden. Kirk had an axe to grind for whatever reason, and he's not finished grinding it. He also says that he was paid handsomely for his time here.. so which part of any of that says to anyone that he wasn't given a platform from which to lead here? Newsflash for Kirk.. think there was pressure here over being a guy who wanted the #2 pick's job? Imagine how it'll be with a fully guaranteed contract. It's Super Bowl or bust. Nothing less. He was given everything he says he wasn't while he was here. what his comments sound like to me was he never got over being a fourth round pick and felt it was a slight from the first day. The fact Shanahan picked him right after picking RG should have told him what coaches at this level thought of him, but it didn't. The fact Gruden went to bat for him should have told him, but it didn't. the fact they kept giving him franchise tags should have told him, but it didn't. I don't pretend to know which side is at fault here, but I see how he's handling it, To me the above is a shot he thinks he's firing back, but is actually exposing more about himself. ~Bang

    Yep, the first thing to understand about this group of bullies is that all of your 'understanding' will not be reciprocated, it will be mocked and used against you. If a person needs to be convinced by now to not vote for Trump or his endorsements, they have no intention of changing their mind, and it doesn't matter anymore how much further this administration swirls us down the toilet. They deserve no understanding at all. and if that causes them to dig in, then so be it. Their intent is crystal clear, and there is no dialogue on the agenda. ~Bang

    There's so much negativity everywhere, I thought it would be nice to have a place for the good stories to break up all the crap we are constantly inundated with and restore some of our faith in humanity. I'll start it off with two stories: Cyclist carries injured stray dog on his back, finds pup a forever home Mountain biker Jarrett Little was with a group of fellow cyclists riding in the woods near Columbus, Georgia, when he spotted a creature who needed his help. It was a stray dog that appeared to have been hit by a car. "We stopped to regroup and he came out of the woods to greet us. He was really thin, ribs showing and had a lot of road rash and a broken leg," Little told CBS News. He says he and the other cyclists fed the dog and gave him water, but knew they couldn't leave the dog in the woods. Little didn't have a car to transport him, just a bike. So he hoisted the pup onto his back, and rode into town looking for help. Little said once they arrived in Columbus to search for help, he and the pup met a woman who took an interest in him. Andrea Shaw, who was there on a business trip, started talking to Little about the stray he had biked in from the woods. "Right when we returned to my local bike shop to get him some more water and food, we instantly ran into Mrs. Andrea who was in town from Maine," Little said. "She decided to keep him and get him checked out medically." Little says Shaw took the dog off his hands, and not only got him medical help, but a new home.

The night before Carr's first day on the job, his 2003 Nissan Altima broke down. He called his friends and his girlfriend to try to get a ride, but nothing worked out. He checked his GPS and saw that without a car it would take him about 7 hours to get from his house in Homewood, Alabama, to the town of Pelham for his first day at Bellhops moving company. He decided to walk. Carr started his 20-mile trek sometime around midnight. "I wanted to be there before 8," he said. "I wanted to beat the crew members there to let the company know how dedicated I am." He made it about 14 miles to Pelham when police officers stopped him on the side of the road around 4 a.m. "He was like, 'Where are you going?' and I was like, 'It’s hard to believe, it’s going to sound real crazy, but I’m actually headed to work.'" Carr said. When they heard his story, the officers decided to take him to breakfast at Whataburger and made sure he got something for lunch, too. Carr said the officers debated for a little while where they could safely drop him off and eventually landed on First Methodist Church. The officers said they would send someone to check on him. Carr rested for a while before he started walking again. He had less than 4 miles to go when another officer pulled up to check on him. "He said, 'Are you Walter Carr?' and he was like, 'Get in the car, I got you,'" Carr said. The officer dropped him off at the home of Jenny Hayden Lamey, who Carr was scheduled to help move that day. Carr said once the officer told Lamey and her husband Chris his story, they insisted he rest for a while. "They were overwhelmed," he said. "We argued about five minutes about me resting." After the moving job was done, Lamey, impressed by Carr's determination, shared his story on Facebook. Lamey's post went viral and caught the attention of Luke Marklin, the Bellhops CEO, on Sunday morning. Marklin said he started getting texts about Carr's story and got his team together to figure how they could thank him. Marklin met Carr on Monday to thank him and decided to gift him his personal Ford Escape. Carr was surprised, to say the least. "I think he was pretty happy," Marklin said, laughing. "His resolve to get through challenges is just something that legends are made of, really." Click on the link for the full article

    I don't see how it is realistic to expect this team to be in dead last. After the injuryfest of last year, we still won 7 games. Prior to the injuries setting in, they were looking pretty good, especially defensively, and simply the health we get back should be enough to boost that considerably, AND factor in the new pieces added. I think the Redskins are going to have one of the better pass rushes in the NFL if they stay healthy. People can debate how we did at QB,, upgrade, downgrade, lateral.. either way, one thing isn't in question and it's smith's intelligence.. he will not make the killing mental errors, and we know Gruden's schemes work. The giants did what we always used to do. Sign free agents and fire the coach. They do have a veteran QB who can play well, and can also play as badly as anyone you've ever seen. They patched holes, and McAdoo thinks that is the difference to win the division. the Cowboys lost a hall of fame TE, and have a receiving corps every bit as unproven as ours, and frankly, i think that loss of Witten is going to be HUGE unless Prescott can back defenses out of the box. i am not sure he can, and haven't seen anything to indicate it's not going to be Zeke facing stacked boxes all day every week. Of the three, i think it's the giants or Cowboys who are the likeliest candidate for the cellar. ~Bang

    Eating fried okra now, which reminded me that you asked me this and I couldn't respond (was in a meeting for work) and then I forgot about it, sorry for that. As far as spots in NC that are known for their fried okra? Not that I've heard of. It's a common side at a lot of BBQ joints down here though. A lot depends on the breading they use and how long they leave it in the deep fryer. My mamaw and papaw would get fresh okra, cut it up and just fry it on the stove-top, no breading. Personally, I prefer it to be breaded and fried. Sonny's BBQ has the best around where I'm at. It's not usually dry or that dry. Some other places fry it too long, so it's soggy, which is disgusting. Some use minimal breading, which is ok. Actually the best I've had was at a soul food restaurant near my old office, near the old Charlotte Coliseum. I got to know the owner and his wife going there so much they gave me a discount every time. He had some of the best food, used his grandmother's recipes iirc, talking bout southern cooking. Greens, black eyed peas, cornbread, fried chicken, ribs, fried okra, etc. It's probably good that I started working from home, cause I'd probably have gotten a blocked artery and died by now.

    Jesus Christ. Russia is attacking us and has been for over three years. Their weapon is the GOP and it's moronic base. EVERYTHING you've been told about your party by the "fake news" keeps coming true and all you contribute to the conversation is "Dems are whiney *******" and "That drunk racist asshole is mentally ill. Real tolerant libs!!" How about you get your ****ing **** together?

    What it does illustrate though, is that Kirk Cousins for whatever reason felt wronged by being drafted as an after thought to Griffin. And it showed. The damage was done right then and there. Instead of relishing the opportunity to come in and learn from the Shannys, he had the audacity to ask over the phone on draft day “ Are you sure you want to do this?” As if he was some golden armed prospect that had the ability to pick where he wanted to play and be “THE guy” from the get go. Its something I touched on from the beginning since I started posting here. Kirk Cousins never really wanted to be here. From the beginning. You can talk till your blue in the face about how horrible Bruce Allen is. The fact is, if he was serious about being here, he makes a better faith effort to negotiate than what he did. The damage was done long before Bruce Allen “lowballed” him. Unfortunately that point seemed to be lost among many, as it was preposterous for them to take any other stance than “Bruce Allen royally screwed up.” Andy Reid has said that he worked with Alex to get him to a spot he could succeed in. And I believe him. His words about Alex show how much respect he has for the guy. Make no mistake, Alex was going to get a handsome contract and opportunity to be the guy somewhere around the league. So the fact that he seemed excited about Washington as a destination seems genuine to me. And having your starting QB wanting to be here, and the fact the team now knows that, has to count for something. It doesn’t mean Kirk is a bad guy and Alex is the best thing since sliced bread. But it is in fact a very good thing that should help this team get to where it wants to be. I wish Kirk the best but I am excited about Alex leading the team.
