Great read. Reinforces my speculation about everything I read on the internet. Thank you sir.

The hell with Bieber I would love to see her take on the "Squad" two at a time. Cage match. I'd pay $1000 to see that and so would a million other people.

Желаю всего того, что ты/вы себе сам/а/и желаешь/желаете

Pronunciation: ZhyLAyu vsyVOH taVOH, SHTO ty/vy siBYE sam/saMAH/Sami zhyLAysh / zhyLAyitye
Meaning: Wishing you everything that you wish for yourself.
Usage: An informal expression, this birthday phrase is suitable when speaking to a friend, a close colleague, or a relative.

I was 29 at that time running my 3 bay Sinclair gas station in Northfield Illinois.
Worked many long hours then 6 am to 11 pm and loved every minute of it.
I have a lot of kin in Illinois. Arlington Heights, Danville and across the river from St.Louis. Litchfield and Mount Olive. My Uncle (now my cousins) have a 700 acre farm outside Mount Olive. USDA leases about half of that for agriculture experiments. I love the rural areas up there. Sister lives in Arlington Heights and teaches music at a local high school. She's a dyed in the wool Chicago democrat so we rarely speak.

I quit giving to the Republican Party 11 years ago. Due to my wife's position at Texas A&M she knew both President H.W. Bush and G. W. Bush and I met both through her. We were both happy to contribute what we could although during GW's second election we cut our donations by 50%.
In 2008 I wasn't going to contribute a dime to McCain so we declined the mail and telephone solicitations. Then it started. 30 - 40 phone calls a day from Washington DC Republican party headquarters and at least that many solicitations through the mail every week. I had a land line then and bought a Panasonic phone where you could block up to 100 numbers. Didn't matter. I would block one number and they would use another. I was nice, I was mad, I was profane. Didn't matter. The blocking memory was full and they still called.
I worded a nice but stern E-Mail to the chairman of the Republican party. Ignored. I finally sent E-Mail's to Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Phil Gramm. That was on a Saturday. By Tuesday the telephone was silent.
Never again will i give money to a political cause with a maybe to a 2nd Amendment issue. Trump doesn't need my help anyway.

There is a story every day about foolish people posting their views on social media that costs them their job, political office, customers, business, something. You would think by now everyone, especially conservatives, would know that their comments posted on social media aren't private and are there forever. Sh** will come back to bite you in the ass if someone, anyone, disagrees.
What this young women said concerning Muslims and black on black crime is absolutely true but the left, which claims to be the party of tolerance is, in fact, intolerant and hypocritical. If you don't agree with what they say your automatically labeled a bigot, racist, homophobic, whatever. "Try on a hijab" booth. I mean WTF who even thinks up crap like that.
No social media presence for me. No twitter, no bookface,  no Instagram. Nada. I figure if I want to drum up a little drama I'd post something on here like Glock pistols are better than Beretta.

Wife is making pan-fired pork chops, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans, with some yeast rolls.  :rocknroll2:
Axxe that's a traditional redneck dinner.  :th_thicon_idea: Love pork chops with yeast rolls and green beans on the side.
CFS, gravy and baked potato for me.

Yeah, the '73 thru '88 Corvettes looked good but ran like crap due to new federally mandated emission control standards. Less than 200 HP in a large V8 "performance" engine is laughable. It took GM and the microprocessor about 15 years to figure out how to combine emission control, HP and performance.
Now you could get a late ''70s mid '80's Corvette for around 20K swap the stock engine for a 350 CI rate engine and you would have a nice cruiser for under 30K.

Have had three Corvettes in my life and will there will probably be another. On the last two I ditched the stock wheels and tires, added a cold air intake, Borla exhaust and reprogram the ECU. I'm lucky my brother, gone three years now, was a whiz at such things.
In 2011 I traded my '03 Vette for a triple black 09 Ford GT 500 Shelby Cobra ragtop. No modifications needed on that bad boy. Pure beast.
Hoping that the new mid engine Vette will be popular and the market gets flooded with gently used, low mileage C7 Corvettes.

May be in for a change next week weather wise. From our local weather guy:
By Monday, a northeast wind shift will be approaching from the east. Scattered rain and a few thunderstorms could kick off the week. Tuesday brings the best chance for wet weather through the day as the front arrives -which in itself should hold highs to the upper 80s(!). This is where the train comes off the tracks as the extended forecast is still a bit muddled. Scattered rain may linger in the forecast if that boundary cannot get far enough southwest.The alternative is drier air swooping in dropping morning lows to the 60s & 70s with afternoon highs topping off in the low 90s. Regardless, both will bring below-average temperatures and a bit of an edge off our recent heat.

I occasionally see jicama at my go to HEB but I don't know if that's because it sells quickly or it's not something they stock regularly.
Bill, I wanted to thank you for posting that photo if that shrimp and salad with that bottle sweet chili sauce next to it. With that in mind I went to HEB yesterday and bought lettuce, shrimp, pasteurized shredded crab meat, scallops, prepackaged frozen crayfish tail meat and a bottle of sweet chili sauce.
Cooked the scallops in a lite olive oil and put that in the fridge to cool while I mixed everything else and let the crayfish thaw out. I made a small bowl for myself to test and found that the crayfish had Cajun seasoning that kind of over powered the taste of everything else. Not bad but not what I was looking for. I also found that a little of the chili sauce goes a long way.
In the end I removed the crayfish and put the chili sauce on the side so everyone could get the amount they wanted. A couple of folks used bottled Italian dressing. I've got some ingredients left over so tonight I going to try it again with some diced onion and bacon.

Welcome shout out from Brazos County.  :th_thicon_idea:

I've had it raw and fried like a french fry. It would probably be tasty in a cucumber and tomato salad. Where do you get yours HEB?

Was listening to Bill O'Reilly the other day. He said now that AOC has a taste of fame she want's the big money.Talk show on MSNBC or joining Whoppi and friends on the morning gab fest. Something along those lines. Said it wouldn't surprise him if she didn't run for reelection.

When it comes to firearms and bourbon I always leave my options open. I like the .22 Magnum and have a PMR 30 and a CMR 30 in that caliber. I did have a Ruger LCR in .22 WMR but found it to snappy for accurate follow up shots.
I have two military ammo cans full of .22 WMR in various grains and brands. Probably close to 2,000 rounds. I am wary of .22 WMR in light weight pistols though. I'll be bugging my LGS to get one these for a range rental.
I never say never.

Not even close. Trump gives a speech tonight in North Carolina. Will be watching.

The article doesn't mention that Green brought articles of impeachment against Trump last year when republicans held the majority in the house and was basically laughed at. It went nowhere. This one may make democrats feel good by voting aye but real politicians know it's basically dead on arrival. The Senate will ignore it IF and, that's a big IF, it gets that far.
Trump succeeded in what he wanted to do. That is to keep these new socialist/communist members of congress with their green new deal and free health care for all mantra out front to show the American People who really runs the Democratic Party. I think it's a brilliant move on Trump's part. And did you see Trump's poll numbers went up 4 points, to an all time high, since this past weekend? Real Americans can't be fooled.

Mickey Thompson aluminum wheels $3500 -
35"  Mickey Thompson off road tires $3000
Lift kit $1500
Black Horse Roll Bar $800
KC Hi lights - $800

That takes care of the first 10k. You need another 10K+ for the Roush supercharger and exhaust.

For an extra 10 grand (or more) you can turn your new F 150 into a retro beast. I'm not a pick up guy but I do like this.
