It will be interesting to see if her integrity holds up once the anti gun groups and her anti gun allies start putting the pressure on her to INFRINGE on our Second Amendment RIGHTS.

We can only hope she maintains her standard of looking after us gun owners. It's not all about the right to hunt but the right to own a firearm for protection.

It would be even more interesting to see her constituents hold her feet to the fire. And this with equal or more zeal than the anti's do.

I'm afraid it will boil down to a Clinton type of thing, you know, his famous "it all depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is. With her, it will most likely be "it all depends on the meaning of the word integrity is."

There are more rumors flying about regarding this selection than I've seen in a long time!

Presumably schumer boy is championing her selection, which is giving the folks at the NRA some indigestion: WHY would he champion a pro-gunner?

The rumor being this: The 'o' managed to tick-off both the schumer and the Gov., so now their getting back at him.

There's a game afoot ...

Yeah, they definitely need to watch out who they "fiddle" with. Remember, some of us just might have something other than a "fiddle" in that violin case.... ;)

Could you please give us the translation of your motto? is it Latin - and is the Scottish language derived from Latin, or more of a mixture, and are there germanic words - didn't Bonnie Prince Charlie fight against german rulers in England? And is Highland ale dark or light? I like the light ones like Heineken's beer, but in your honor I'd even try a Highland ale, if you reply politely and don't flirt or insult!(if it has to be one or the other....)

Do you just visit this site on Wednesday and Thursday? Would highland ale go with Mexican food? I only do beer with Mexican food, on Thursday nights only and not even every Thursay. Please answer before Valentine's day. That is my deadline for misbehaving. New Year's Resolutions need to have a sort of transition period, you see!

Schumer wants to have an easily re-elected candidate who can raise a lot of her own money, so he can concentrate on other Senate races - Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvanis will all be expensive. If KG doesn't tick off the NRA by changing her vote, then maybe they won't put in big bucks against her. A primary will hurt the Democrats in New York. But who says a Senator from New york as to be anything out of the ordinary? Not necessary to have a star! I like the new lady from New Hampshire. She seems like a very accomplished "regular person." I think that's nice. Anyone interested should be able to get a video of her press conference with the Governor of nH, on cspan or somewhere.

"Tu ne cede malis" literally translated means: Do not give in to evil.

But that is only a partial remark.

The full remark is:
'Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito.'

"Do not give in to evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it."

Traditionally, Scots is fundamentally Gaelic, and very close to Irish Gaelic, inasmuch that the original band of settlers from Ireland —a group called the 'Scotties' from Dalriada, Ireland— settled on the Northwestern coast of what is now known as 'Scotland.'

The original occupants of that land —referred to as Caledonia by the Romans— were the Picts, so-called because they painted/adorned their bodies with pictures, not unlike tattoos.

So, it is quite likely that there are elements of Pict in the language as well.

The language roots of Gaelic are Germanic in origin, and any one hearing it for the first time and who is familiar with German, will hear the close resemblance to the pronunciations and inflections.

If you mean the Hanoverian rulers who were invited to be seated as Monarchs in place of the recently removed Stuart Dynasty, then yes.

Actually, and until quite recently, their familial name was Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, which they changed to 'Windsor' to placate many.

There is a bit of variability in the coloration depending upon who made it. But usually it is a 'nut brown' color, which may border on a dark brown, and still be quite transparent sufficient to see through it.

Highland ale tends to be pretty much a 'craft ale,' not unlike many others, in that there are no large breweries producing it in such quantity as to make it a 'household reference.' So therein lay the degree of variability amongst the various brands.

There is a company on the U.S. East coast which makes a quality product, but unhappily, it isn't available in the State of Washington.

Now, my other favorite which I drink most of the time is IPA (India Pale Ale), made by Lagunitas Brewing, of California.

And there you have it!

Yeah, I would suppose it would. Actually, I can't think of anything that doesn't go good with Highland ale, or any other ale for that matter.

Just one qualifier: Stay away from the dog piss: Budweiser.

Otherwise, I'm not really the person you want to ask about that, in that my Mother used to tell my various girlfriends I brought by, that I'm not a finicky eater. "Just put food in front of him," she'd say, "And he'll eat just anything! It don't matter!!"
