Good Day Boomer,
I suppose POLITICS has that name, as we know,
stirring people up.
I know this is just an opinion,
no more than that, but I feel politics is discussed..
perhaps *too much* on
what is .. a KITCHEN thread;
but
as I say, that is just my opinion..
others think differently..
Very bad weather forecast over in these part,
altho' St Patrick's passed of well.
Good day one & all.
i was gonna say, if we talked only kitchen stuff then the men might not be around so much. But then again, more and more are doing the cooking today so maybe not. lol

hope u had a wonderful Irish Day Grace!
:)

That is kind of offensive, in a way

[unless I took you up wrong]!
that you imply..
folks who are not too interested
in politics are empty heads!

There is a *huge* variety of subjects
of interest between weather and politics!

I just grow *weary* of the same old
ding dong .. all the time,
not singling out THE KITCHEN, as such, only
for criticism..

I often grow weary [too] of late night TV
shows that quickly turn to politics
and proceed to bore the pants off an audience.

I suppose it's as well we are all
different.

Perhaps that's the bottom line.

I am taken back in time to when I was a new bride, 19 years of age and visiting my in-laws for Sunday lunch.

After preliminary greetings, the men and women were then segregated, the men sat discussing world affairs, the latest scores in sport etc., while we women congretated in the kitchen to assist in preparing the Sunday meal. To which I had been invited as a guest! lol

Conversation at the table was polite, then after lunch we ladies made our way to the kitchen while the gents took to the armchairs, had a smoke, perhaps a drink and resumed conversation which it appeared was far too much for feminine ears!
Putting the world to rights.

This was alien to me, who always believed in the Freedom of Speech....

and so it is to this day, we have the British Press under fire talking about censoring everything that they they are allowed to publish..this after 300 years of Free Press.

In this kitchen, Everybody is welcome to discuss what they will, anything and everything.

It has always been that way..otherwise, how will we learn?

Cheers.

i know in my circle of RW friends, they All are boisterous in opinions - esp with politics and religion..
of course they are talking over each other and nobody ever really hears it. lol
but i agree with Quinn, if it bothers u, its ok to just sit back and listen Or not.. its just a way of talking and exchanging ideas.. even in the RW we know our opinions aren't gonna make a big difference in the way of the world, but at least we've expressed them. sometimes thats all we need.
anyway, Good Morning All - have a wonderful day!
:]
Good morning PF. We need to at least care enough to discuss things

Good morning Mighty Quinn. You are my favorite oerson to disagree with. I hate government even when Republicans are in charge. I just think conservatives are less harmful. Obama doesn't think we have a spending problem at all. We can't continue to borrow half of what we spend. You know where that will end for all of us. It is a disgrace that we have 40 million people on food stamps

1st to speak hasn't a chance because as soon as the 2nd has time to think of something they begin talking louder than the 1st and etc.
It all ends with everyone agreeing to disagree with each other because we're all too bullheaded
to change our minds.((I blame it on age!))
Gett'n it off your chest is a relief!
I agree with Boomer about people acting different when they can hide behind all the facades of this forum. It would be interesting to know what they're really like in the 'real world'.
Personally, I'm pretty much the same in both, except throwing [my redneck persona out] on the forum.
All of ya have a good Monday!
just cutting in to say y'all are welcome to the kitchen.
Can we be objective enough to describe what we are really
like? For myself, anything I have to say here, I would
say in the RW...if, that is, there was anybody sufficiently
interested to hear it, which is doubtful! One topic rules
here where I live, and that is we English incomers are
the ruination of their culture. Understandable.
I tell a lie, Rugby is first and foremost in the converstion
currently, Wales having retained the Championship.

FDR tried that in his terms and he had 12 years , didn't work .... ok
take this as information ....
FDR really tried to stack the court by increasing the numbers on the court :)

What a pleasant place to discuss our views. I never take anything personally and I value everyone's view point. Quinn is from a solid Democrat state and I am from a solid Republican state :)

I have seen England change so very much. I don't think the influx has been for the good. El how does it work now that people from the EU can go anywhere and work? It would seem people would flock to the country that had the most welfare benefits. Is that the case ?

Where else can you get a decent breakfast/lunch whatever,
and have a gold old chat...not just about politics, latest
movies, whatever comes into mind.
I did realise that Denny, regarding the Dems and Republicans.
Don't quite understand it, but do understand they are not
in unison.

I always cast my mind back to the fact that when my own ancestors emigrated here, they were equally unwelcome...difference being, no benefits in those days. The conditions in which they lived would be considered uninhabitable, yet they made good. Focus these days seems to be on the occasional immigrant who is granted extraordinary benefits and given a house in the most exclusive areas, rent paid, however, always two sides to the coin, not a lot of mention of the unscrupulous landlords who take advantage of impoverished immigrants, housing them in garages and the like, for which they pay exhorbitant rent out of their benefits.
There are instances where some newcomers are given grants to open restaurants, cafes, or shops, whilst local unemployed are given the no help whatsoever, that creates discord.
Then there are the newcomers who will accept the jobs of work which the locals are too lazy to do.
What riles mostly, are the lack of health checks given to people coming into the UK....TB is on the increase having been eradicated, yet when I moved to the USA, even my dogs had to have a clean bill of health.
I will sum up Denny by saying that our economy is such, that for the first time in my living memory at least, food banks are sprouting up everywhere.

Thanks Grace, lol.

I thought at the time..a gold old chat with a golden oldie, ha ha.

Much much better thanks, in fact, have been able to move some roses to enable us to access the patio on a lower level...just
in time as it looks like rain any minute now.

Hope this finds you keeping well and taking good care this weather....:)

To be clear: it was a conservative court, led by a George W appointee, which overturned the conviction of a hugely profitable accounting firm on a TECHNICALITY and not on the merits of the case, in spite of the fact that the state Supreme Court upheld the conviction?
to get clear the supreme court is lead by the Chief Justice ..........

in addition to the duties of the Associate Justices, the Chief Justice has the following additional duties:

The Chief Justice enters the courtroom first and casts the first vote when the justices deliberate. The Chief Justice's vote carries has no more influence than the votes of the Associate Justices.

If the Chief Justice votes with the majority in a case decided by the Supreme Court, he or she may choose to write the Court's opinion, or to assign the task to one of the Associate Justices.

The Chief Justice sits as the judge in impeachments of the President of the United States. Only two Chief Justices have ever served this roll: Chief Justices, Salmon P. Chase presided over the Senate trial of President Andrew Johnson in 1868, and the late William H. Rehnquist presided over the trial of President William Clinton in 1999.

The Chief Justice presides over the impeachment trial of the Vice President if the Vice President is serving as Acting President (a Senate rule, not provided for by the Constitution).

The Chief Justice swears in the President of the United States at inaugurations. This is a purely traditional role. According to law, any federal or state judge, even a notary-public, is empowered to administer oaths of office.

The Chief Justice serves as Chancellor of the Smithsonian Institution, and sits on the boards of the National Gallery of Art and the Hirshorn Museum.

The Chief Justice writes an annual report to Congress about the state of the federal court system.

Just like the Associate Justices, the Chief Justice of the United States is nominated by the President of the United States and must be confirmed by a majority vote of the U.S. Senate. Also like the Associate Justices, the Chief Justice serves until retirement, death or impeachment.

you really should forget Bush , he didn't hurt you

btw did you return your stimulus checks ???????
