LIVING IN A SO-CALLED FREE COUNTRY WHERE A PLANT GROWING FROM THE GROUND IS ILLEGAL AND WILL LEAD TO ONE'S INCARCERATION.
WHO ARE THE BRAINLESS DOUCHE BAGS THAT ARE RUNNING OUR COUNTRY?.
#BULLSHIT  
FREEDOM? in the United States?
Freedom to do what exactly?
Freedom to pay the shit out of taxes to support a mediocre, apathetic and corrupt public sector....<sigh> sorry - truth hurts.

Every wing eater in Central Texas knows that MD Plucker's (Austin, TX) kicks BW3's ass! 
I recall back in the late 90s BW3 had a pretty good fare. The quality of the wings has gone down and the service ... well, let's just say we never went there for the service...

Experience the best in wings - Plucker's

Buffalo Wild Wings stock is down 14% after revealing a decline in sales and gloomy prospects for the next few months. The restaurant chain blamed cautious consumer spending and rising costs, including labor expenses.

The DNC is full of corrupt pussies. I'm sure Sanders is more than they bargained for... Wow!
While I do not care for the man's politics I do have a healthy respect for his integrity and his ability to be without any sort of coercion from a corporate or institutional benefactor/supporter. This is highly unusual in modern politics - a politician not beholden to the ideas, philosophies and agendas of shadow supporters. 
Frustration within the ranks over the party's handling of the primary process spilled out this week as Bernie Sanders supporters lashed out at leaders

Clearly +Nikki Fortunato Bas does not catch many cabs heading to the airport or in the bar districts after hours...try getting a cab at 2am near a club or drinking establishment in Austin, genius! You'd have more luck finding hen's teeth in the dark.

Cabs in Austin generally suck in their coverage of the metro-area, pricing and driving behavior. Ms. Fortunato-Bas' assertion that this was a "landmark victory for local democracy and public safety" is ludicrous and misguided.
The only outcomes from this silly ordinance are: (1) an antiquated industry is protected (again); (2) innovation is stifled; (3) Austin has easily 50% less transportation for hire at any given time of day than it did three weeks ago; (4) drunks retake the road when no rides are available after hours; and (5) a manipulated marketplace is advocated and enforced by the government....sounds like bullshit to me...
Last Saturday, Austin voters overwhelmingly voted down Uber-and-Lyft sponsored Prop 1, which would have overturned a number of basic ridesharing oversigh...

In foreign policy speech, he tagged his approach "America First," a name used by isolationist, anti-Semitic group that once urged U.S. to appease Adolf Hitler.

TSA already charges EVERY passenger the 911 fee which is like 5 or 6 bucks each way. How are these inefficient and disorganized bastards not able to meet their operations costs out of that extraordinary amount of money? If more people are traveling as this article suggests then TSA will receive even more money – yet TSA cannot seem to figure out how to scale their operations effectively. Inefficient and useless to the point of comedy. Arriving to airport 2hours early for a 90 minute flight is ridiculous- unless you work at TSA (see statement).
Read the article- how many "bomb-tests" did TSA fail last year? What exactly is it that TSA thinks that it does other than waste time and money? I'm not sure that air safety is really accomplished with the service they provide.

The wait times at airport security checkpoints, always a source of grief for air passengers, have gotten so lengthy that airlines and airport operators are protesting and predicting gridlock during the upcoming summer travel season.

My neighborhood bar - so good. If you like beer and pizza this is the place for you.

What a great venue - but watch out for the locals trying to sell you that DPRK acid...it's all bunk. Easy access to the stage once inside (the security checkpoint to get in is hell though). Stay away from the food - it's all just regurgitated rat turds anyway. The beer was cold and reasonably priced but the latrines were a little rough. Do yourself a favor and arrive early - parking can be a real snarl.

Home Slice is simply the best pizza in Austin. there are other pizzas in town that are good but Home Slice - in Austin - is in a league of its own. I am regularly on the East Coast (NJ, MA) and I would judge their pizzas to be *very* authentic to the NY/NJ style (and very tasty too). The crust is outstanding and the sauce accompanies well. I recommend the Margaretta. Don't let the line put you off - just be patient. The staff are a pretty attentive bunch.

A great workout gym for adults trying to get back into fitness or with limited spare time. The workout programs are designed to be finished in about 30 minutes. Coupled with some cardio, normal gym visits are less than 60 minutes. The facilities are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.
