Oh Gawd. So did Bill Clinton. Then he lied under oath, several times. And worse yet, he couldn't be impeached. Tell me you're not that old school. Craps, Commander.
Why do you sound so incredulous? Before they were President they were politicians, right? Before they were politicians they were liars, right? Every four years we pick the best liar and give him the checkbook to spend the world's most unlimited budget.

<quoted text> Okay, Kim Jong-un is in NK. There would never be a Nuke first strike by this POS in the White House. He'll wait until its too late for those poor souls within range of that fat Asian. Beside, China will not abandon him. Like we didn't know that. I thought I'd be long gone before I saw third rate countries threatening us, but, with players like Russia and China joining the band wagon, someone is gonna underestimate someone. Want some turkey?
Really? China would rather prop up another generation of megalomaniacal Asian sunglass models than get paid? We're not talking about grandpa's China anymore...Communism in China doesn't look like Communist Korea nor has it for a while.

I totally understand. I'm proud too and I'm most proud of my country when it's taking care of itself.

I'm not sad, I'm real (it's right there in my name), and he was lawfully re-elected. Four more years babe, them's the rules.

Kaleidoscope, your hypothetical nuke scenario gave me a reason to say why NK will never happen. China has already said so. Now, Russia is sending warnings about attacking Iran. How long do we "fantasize" that we number one without some indication that we are? Old school? Or old fool?

Do I have to choose? Why can't I be both? Saying so doesn't necessarily make it so. We still haven't pulled out the "you are not the boss of me" gambit so there's still a lot of diplomatic wiggle room left.

More importantly who do I have to kill to get a leg?

Okay. For you Southern miscreants. I spent a month in New Smyrna, Fla, and could not find a decent hotdog anywhere. I'm talking links, not the 8 to a pack Hebrew skinless. And, try to find a place to get a chunk of Genoa Salami for my antipasto. Besides not meeting anybody who could make the correct change, I thought I was in a another country where the simplest request was answered with "Huh?". Now, ANYBODY who would attempt to purchase Turkey legs would know that they come 3 to a pack. Not two because Turkeys have 2 legs. 3, because they want to get into you pockets. Next time either one of you world travelers go to your Henny Penny or whatever the fcuk they call it, try to find them (good luck with that. Clearing that first hurdle, count the pieces in the package. More importantly, after the purchase, check your change.

My butcher will put as many in a sack as I ask for, I just don't ask. My son is the smoker in the family. When I want ribs or brisket or a slab of salmon I just tell him I'm bringing him a present. I do steaks, birds and seafood on the grill as nature intended. Veggies are good too. We have one of those Kitchenaid stand mixers and I've debated getting the sausage attachment over and over. I keep losing because I just had to have the pasta attachments and I've used them once in about 10 years. Even then we were making papyrus.

I found a butcher shop in Flagler that had hotdogs links, but they weren't Hummels or Deutchmakers They were more like Brown and Serve breakfast links. As for the Genoa, no comprende. LOL

Nature intended to have meat smoked as per our Native Americans. Ya know. We added the grills because we are civilized. I'm also a Blue Rhino customer. You have them down there? You don't? Google it. Grilling is good, but if you have the time, the texture and moistness of the food cannot match a 3-4 hour slow cook. Know what I'm saying , Bubba? Can you hear me, Knucklehead? Give me a hug.

They have the casings and tips and stuff at Bass Pro so I may have to break down and start DIYing some snozzeges. I'll let you smoke them all you want. Some of us like to watch sausage being made:-)

Do we have Blue Rhino down here? Did you really just infer that we don't have propane down south?

Get off your yumpin soapbox. I, also, eat only hotdogs that are sold by the foot. Love em - nothing else is a real dog! Salami? I don't do antipasto. YUK. I'll have to check how turkey legs are sold - never bought 'em without the bird attached. We don't make change or count change in this part of the country; we swipe cards. Henny Penny? LOL Calm down and get real, Sugar.

I understand, I really do. It's just that after four years, birthers were unable to prove their assertions and he was re-elected. With that in mind, it will take all of his second term in office to prove that you still can't prove anything wrong, after which he will be ex-president and you'll have wasted another four years wishing it went the other way.

If I were still in uniform, he'd be my commander in chief and you and I would have much stronger words.

Just recounting my month long experience in Limestone land. Great weather and I got to see an evening launch from Titusville from my 8th floor balcony on the waterfront. One day I got hit by a swarm of gross hoppers the size of clothespins. It was raining them. Bouncing of windows, doors and my back. Stung. One last thing. Only dumb people buy groceries with credit/debit cards. Because thyey can'tg count their change. Ark Yak
