Good one. 👍
Doubtful that there would be "president-elect Mitchell McConnell ". The line goes VP, Speaker of the House (currently Pelosi) and then the Senate Pro Tem dumbfuck Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley.
Harsh, but true.
Clark on a bike? That's it! I'm voting National... ...said no one.
All you need are three ingredients: 100% fruit juice Regular ol' refined sugar Yeast Mix juice and sugar, add yeast, loosen the cap to allow gas to escape, wait several weeks, et voila, wine.
...erm, in the US political parties hold a convention to nominate a candidate for president, not a conference. What's the jab about "less coherent" supposed to be about anyway? Examples please of this incoherence.
Funny that. I reckon it sometimes may be just a change in the ecology in the gut, or something similar. About a month ago I spent time both in Japan and Thailand. In Thailand I ate from street vendors, in dirt floor restaurants with no running water, and ...
Cronyn(R) from Texas, Graham(R) South Carolina, McConnell(R) KY, Ernst(R) Iowa, McSally(R) Arizona, definitely Collins(R) Maine...all in play. If the House locks down an airtight case, you'll see R senators bail 'cos these craven creeps will be loyal until...
Congratulations to the Black Caps! What a nail-biter that was.
I'm a registered voter in Florida's 16th district. The incumbent, Vern Buchanan (R), is one of the richest members of the House of Representatives. On the day that the House passed a 1.2 trillion dollar tax cut Vern went out and bought himself a yacht. ...
Saudi is a failed state? Lumping a rich GCC country with Syria is a bit odd.
NZ citizens pay US$14.00 for the two year ESTA as part of the visa waiver program - same as Aussie and other eligible nations. My wife used her Kiwi passport to enter the US last month and will do so again next month. She's good to go until March 2019.
Interesting. I hadn't noticed that. Then again, a fish doesn't know it's wet.
My wife (English is her second, third, or fourth language depending on how one categorises dialects) loves the junk mail. It helped her with handy phrases like Blowout Sale! and Discount Days. That's one of the very few positives to junk mail.
Why're you going on like that? ;)
Good grief. That Prebble piece pegged the patriarchal-authoritarian meter. Sheesh.

Paddock was obviously a devout Republican as 99% of that area are (and all the people investigating him there would be too ) and in his rabid state decided that anyone who listens to that music is a communist and should die. Oh kee-rist…the ignorance ...
Obvious, innit. :)
When I cast my vote taxes were not paramount in my voting preference. I reckon taxes are the cost of being part of a society. I may or may not be happy about the amount that is deducted, but I budget accordingly and then just get on with it. What I do look...
Overseas Green voters describe us; daughter in Florida, wife in Thailand, and me toiling away in the Middle East. Time to change the government.
Overseas voter here. One tick for the Green Party and one tick for David Clark in Dunedin North.
Overseas voters here. One party vote Green from here in the sand box. Another Green party vote by my daughter from the soon to be ravaged state of Florida. I'm working on getting the missus to vote but she's in an out of the way no-mod-con jungle patch in ...
Thanks for this as I am overseas and was not sure how to go about casting my vote.
I was just in Bolivia this month. I saw a lovely plaque in the central plaza in Sucre which reads "No solos enimigos de los ricos, pero somos más amigos de los pobres." (We are not the enemy of the rich, but we are more friends with the poor).
On a personal note I hope you're wrong. I have to go back to work in the Eastern Province of KSA in five more weeks. My wife has to transit through Qatar next month on her way to Thailand.
I'm in Saudi, so rent isn't an issue as Saudi employers are obligated to provide housing for expatriate workers.
What happens to cities when ordinary people cannot afford to live in them any more? I dunno what happens to those cities, but I had to move overseas 'cos I couldn't afford to live anywhere in New Zealand (and I'm frugal as fuck). I'd love to return to New...
Five of 'em, eh? This lil' piggy went to market. This lil' piggy stayed home. This lil' piggy had roast beef. This lil' piggy had none. And this lil' piggy went wee wee wee all the way home.
I could've voted, but I've left it too late. Oh well, I can't find any enthusiasm for any of the presidential candidates nor any of the down-ballot troughers either. Next year's NZ elections may also prove a challenge to participate in if my last efforts ...
