I just logged on for the first time in a while, and am ashamed for not having finalized a meet up. I guess I've been busy!
Early afternoon on Saturday would be best on my end, but if Sunday works for everyone else we could make that work too. I will check back more faithfully over the next few days to help get this together.
Thanks Karen! We are serving "competition style" St. Louis ribs. In short, they are smoked in-house, but not to the point of falling off the bone. Please say hello when you visit, my staff know me as Ryan, not manbearpig. It sounds like there may be interest, maybe a Saturday in March?
Thank you kind sir.
Casey, congrats! I have been a member of ricochet since before we could pay for it, and this is the funniest post I've read here. And the timing makes it even better, I needed a pick me up.Thanks
Did you vote in VA? I have some contradictory anecdotal evidence myself. Please explain.
wmartin: Based on anecdotal evidence I am more worried about Virginia than Ohio right now.
Before the maelstrom begins, I do want to say that my vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket today was the proudest vote I ever cast in my life. · 1 minute ago
In liberal world, "condescending" is good. Cutlass · #20 · Oct. 22 at 7:42pmPolitico commentators are all talking about how condescending Obama was.
You should read the sob story over at slate.com about sesame street's budget problems. It's full of fuzzy math, but from what I could discern, they take in $45 million a year in merchandise revenue which is a third of its total revenue, they have over 300 employees, and they manage to lose money. But if Romney becomes president, they will go out of business.
Not for nothing, but since when was "teabagger" a gay slur? · 31 minutes ago
I never thought of it as one until liberals started using at a slur for the tea party. It's a sexual act, and as a gay slur, it's subtle. A good example of it being a gay slur is found at the urban dictionary, look at example #5. If you compare it to the claim that criticizing Obama is racist, it becomes far more overt.
Uh, hello. Teabaggers? They use a gay slur to insult an entire conservative movement.The insinuation is obvious from liberals, conservative = gay = bad.
"government officials say" is never the start to an accurate statement.
I was going to choose John Bolton's mustache.
Mendel, he was mocking Brian Ross. He searched the web, found a guy with the same name that is a registered democrat and posted that headline. He did it on purpose.
The Phaledelphia Story. Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn in a great comedy.
I left the Nats game early the other night and couldn't be happier about it. It's probably because I'm a Braves fan.
Here in DC the DMV here was notorious for an incredibly bad inspection system that included onerous regulations, under-trained bureaucrat inspectors (instead of certified mechanics), and even charges of reverse racism. It often took hours to get an inspection with only one location in the city, and like the DMV service centers, nobody there seemed to care about anything at all.
The last mayor actually eliminated the safety inspection system all together in 2009 (I actually am fine with this to a degree), but kept in place the emissions tests. That's right, we took away the safety piece (better for humans) and kept the environmental piece (better for Earth?). I'm sure this had to do with federal funding by complying with EPA regulation.
Just imagine what will happen at the "central health bureau" under a single payer system. Do you think that when they encounter high costs, under served citizens, and charges of inequality, they will make the right choices to fix it? I don't.
