ya definitely going to make this a project requirement for the next house.
 
Dear future Russell,

Your current house is not big enough nor cool enough for this. Your next house, however, needs this. You need this. Do. Not. Forget.

Have some instructions. http://imgur.com/a/vOnt5

tl;dr - I think Trump's a demagogue

#anyonebuttrump

As reference, Trump's press release: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement-on-preventing-muslim-immigration

I'm a political nobody. I don't volunteer nor do I, as a general rule, donate to any candidate or party. However, I do feel strongly about the ideals this great country is founded on as well as the esprit de corps of being an American. This fellowship does not mean we are of one mind on topics and issues, far from it! We have several contentious issues that have been divisive and continue to be debated.

Trump has been and will likely continue to be a blow hard. The latest utterance is so completely over the top and so antithetical to my values as an American that I was taken aback. While couched in a safety justification, it merely covers the rankest of bigotry which reminds me of the history of our country from No Irish Need Apply to Whites Only. Have we, as a country, not moved past this yet?

Yes, we are a melting pot with a diversity of culture, religion, and race. When will we, the collective we and not the pockets of individuals, start to embrace and celebrate our differences instead of attempt to use it to divide us?

As a final note, I would like to remind everyone that Trump's idea to bar immigration based on religion IS constitutional in so far that the SCOTUS decision on Chinese Exclusion Act was never overturned.

Yup, because wanting to call a rose by any other name...

Forever alive in our memories
 
One week ago we lost a great man. The response my family has gotten has been very heart warming. A lot people have reached out wanting to help us. We have set up a memorial fund in my father honor. These funds will be used for all the expenses that an unexpected death will bring, things we never thought we would have to deal with so soon. If the donations exceed the costs, it will be put towards his grandson's college fund.

If you could please donate, you can do so at

I'm not in 100% agreement with the author on all points, but this op-ed piece summarizes my thoughts on the candidates... without the expletives.

+Steven Williams It was dismissed then, along with the Reform Party. He didn't have a snowball's chance. A nomination from a major party like the GOP isn't as dismissible.

ya, odds are 1:292million w a jackpot estimated over 1billion. mathematically, a good buy... but really I don't think individually any of 'us' will win.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million. But someone has to win, right?

Yep.  Details on the types of numbers that people pick would be very important.

I've got a Rav power 10000 mAhr. It's showing a bit of age w some breakage on plastic trim but works great still after 2 yrs of ingressing. at the time it was less than half the price of an equivalent anker... but if I needed to buy another one, I'd have gotten in on the anker deal.

Lonely? Needing advice from a smart guy? Insomnia?

Call this guy... ive met him, he's real. As a conversation starter, ask him about the relative merits of cooperative play between factions in ingress.

ah ha... I did not know AB was a 2A'er.

I also have to agree with his statement about shoveling big macs into our faces.

Understaffing would be my worry. I used to wait tables and bartend way back when. Dead nights sucked, but a couple busy nights a week carried me through.

I'm the reforming geek.  The first step is admitting I have a problem.

Here's an example.  All our pet names are based on the seven deadly sins.  So far, we have two dogs Hubris and Avarice (Ava).  Our next pet (likely a dog) will be Ira (wrath).
