Re: Shutdown 2018

My wonderful parents are visiting. I'm trying to convince them that the shut down means they can't get back into the the US so they'll have to stay longer. They aren't buying it.

Couldn't they just put him in a MRI? I mean if it's copper jacketed lead it wont come bursting out of his skin. He's sure it's a bullet, right?
In all sincerity and with no snark whatsoever, given the extent of his facial injuries, I wouldn't be surprised if he has a metal plate in his head.

Yeah, maybe it was just crappy writing, but it seemed like she was almost as angry about the wine as about giving Aziz a blow job she wasn't really into. She had a bad experience.

Do I have to turn in my feminist card if I have a hard time classifying what happened between "Grace" and Aziz Ansari as sexual assault?

Re: President Trump

I think it's a given that Trump has the world's worst tailor. His suits are terrible, and his ties are ridiculous. I used to work on aged care so I've known quite a few people in that age bracket. I'd put him about in the middle of the pack -he's not one of those sprightly, fun older people who hasn...

I disagree with your assessment, Suranis.

They are of the opinion that there is not such thing as "en...

Saying FLDS is the same as LDS is like saying Protestants are the same as Catholics. We may share some of the same scriptures, but that's it.

Re: Willard "Mitt" Romney for 2018 Utah US Senate? Donald Sabotaging Willard for Orrin Hatch?

I was thinking about the 12 year old girls who have been forced to marry. My understanding is that no other religion (and yeah, this isn't the whole religious community, just a minority sect, right?) in America allows that. So no, it wasn't directed at individual LDS. Sorry. That's FLDS. Not LDS.

Sadly.
He had to become a citizen to own US broadcast stations. Murdoch is all about the money and always has been. The best way to get him to pull the plug on Trump is to make it in his best financial interests to do so.
