Re: Just for the Record...

I'm sorry for your loss. I had to put Chauncey down on Thursday (1/14) due to abdominal cancer. It's tough, his brother Charlie went in April last year and all I have left now is Simon. Since I tend to adopt among the oldest in the shelter, they only get a few years, but I try to make it a good last...

Re: Was Radar O'Reilly actually a racist?

It's considered a stereotype; the stereotype being that only and all people of African descent like grape flavored carbonated beverages. The main point was that it was USED as an insult to Ken Rudolph, an analyst for TVG who Gulliot doesn't like and happens to be African American.

  Have we even signed any 'mutual protection/mutual assistance' treaties with any of the former Soviet republics?
Yes: Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia are all members of NATO.

And Ukraine is a member of the UN.

Re: "Which Airport Are They Going to Name After Me?"

The future USS Lyndon B Johnson (DDG 1002) is under construction. Ok, it's a destroyer and not a carrier or sub, but it's still a ship.

Personally, I wouldn't even have a sewage barge named after Trump.

Re: When will Darren make good on his debts?

Of course he won't. He will still be claiming that Trump will prevail on Jan 21, 2021. Hell, he will still be saying that Trump will eventually be proven the winner of the 2020 election years after Trump and Biden have gone to their graves. It's not whether or not Biden won. Darren will only pay up ...

Re: They do things differently there...

The last time I ran across a pay after you pump station was in 2014, when I took an 8000+ mile road trip. Those occasional stations caught me off guard as I am so used to prepaying that it was weird finding a station with no pay at pump cardreaders. I also intentionally made sure not to need fuel in...

(Guin beat me to it, with much more detail) Darren, again, you're jumping a step. As it stands, Biden has a majority of electors, and the election has been certified by all 50 States. Signed and delivered. The 12th Amendment's clause of a vote in the house of representatives will not happen because ...

Re: 2020 Election results

IF the electoral vote is challenged in congress - and it will be, we all know that - it requires BOTH houses to approve that challenge in order for the challenge to be accepted. There is no way the challenge will be approved by the House of Representatives. It might not even be approved by the Senat...

There are many documents to get through there, but here’s the one that might persuade you, coming as it does from conservative Republicans. Even documents from Republicans won't convince Darren that the case is lost. Because now any Republican that hasn't pledged unwavering loyalty to Trump must be...
