Farmers suddenly realized there is a big government handout in prospect and are already tumbling over themselves to get their hands out to grab some money. For everyone else though, bootstraps. That is the farmers’ way.

How come it is only the two types of cheese? What about stilton, or stinking bishop, or Wensleydale? I’ve seen Curse of the Wererabbit, I know the UK has a ton of cheese (or tonne of cheese, ‘cause of the European metric system). Just the two types seems strangely limiting, if it is a texture thing then switching it

Not sure that is a new idea. My grandmother used to have a little set of holders that you could pop a glass into to turn them into proper cups. Seems like they have taken an existing product and made a very slight modification to it.

You know what? I don’t care here. As the Late Terry Pratchett once said “it is like watching a wasp fight with a nettle, someone is getting stung no matter what happens”.

I’d pay the original $6000, but not almost $10000. That is too much, especially for something they are being coy about the mileage with and which may have been stuck in a garage or under a tarp for two years.

Yeah, it may have been true 40 years ago, and maybe for some cherrybomb ricers, but it is the rubber on asphalt that I hear these days.

Don’t get your hopes up, come the election the GOP waverers will fall in line as usual. With the ongoing flight from flyoverland of liberal voters to California and the NE, it will take fewer and fewer GOP voters to put him back on his little throne behind the Resolute desk.

I think that someone gave him one of those Chinese finger trap toys to keep him busy, and now he is convinced he has the ultimate weapon in disabling an enemy. That is my working theory.

Your point is incorrect, and you are clearly arguing in bad faith.

A self radicalized, homegrown american, and an organization which came into being only as a reaction to our invasion of Iraq. Not sure that makes the point you think it does.

Yeah, the preppers and the profiteers were horrible. And the evangelicals who were all “hallelujah, it is the end times!” too. You’d have thought we were being invaded or something, like we were Poland in 1939. A horrible crime does not equal an invasion or fall of a nation, but that was what America was acting like

I dunno, the venn diagram for crazy old drunk and law enforcement is damn near close to a circle in some parts of America.

True, but at that price it is worth taking the gamble. It is at “why not” territory, better if that is just the opening bid by the seller and they are open to offers. Offer the 1500 and go up to about 1800 and it is gold.

I was much older than that. And I had actually lived and worked in New York in the 80s. 9/11 was a tragedy for New York, a very personal tragedy for families of those on the planes and in the towers, but it was -or should have been- a terrible crime as far as the rest of the nation was concerned. There is no reason

I don’t generally support the Death Penalty, but for people who fake hate crime attacks I might reconsider. It is assholes like this that make it so damn hard for everybody else to get this shit taken seriously.

The problem is that there are a lot of other companies doing that, and they do it a lot better. The thing that allowed Land Rover to compete in that market with its top spec vehicles was the existence of the Defender, which let all the soccer moms and accountants who drove their other vehicles feel superior to the

Never under estimate the English capacity for expensive spite. They will spend huge amounts of money just to try to do something stupid, simply because they think they should not or to hang onto tradition. If anything, the cost and effort needed might actually mean that it is more likely to happen; in England at

If he really was worried about the effect of fear on Americans then he wouldn’t have spent so much time whipping up fear, anger, and divisions just to consolidate his grip on power. He’s have been talking togetherness, compassion, understanding and conciliation instead. The only reason so much of the country was
