  1. Well you can't beat the reach and if he takes it down its more ammunition.
  2. Not an Olberman fan at all, but to provide some clarity, he's speaking about the fact that Mr. Musk is now accusing the past ownership of Twitter of censoring TFG and interfering in the election. That's a pretty aggressive accusations and Mush is saying he has evidence. It probably should be investigated. Unless you all (and by all I mean the roughly 1/3 of the country that says the election was stolen) now believe that the election was a fair one and the right guy won soundly. You can't have it both ways you know. If it's true it should be investigated, if it's not and Mr. Tesla is just yodeling again to create drama, there is reason to believe that he's been urged to make these accusations for a reason, or for someone. Realistically this Musk is dreaming up some drama to be rolled out every couple days to try and impact stock prices and stay relavant. This is another on top of the others, he's only ensuring the advertisers stay away.
  3. Charlie Baker (outgoing gov so not sure that it qualifies in your discussion) ... sadly he has said he wants to step away from politics for awhile, but id hope to see him run for higher office or take on more leadership within the party. There are a few others at state level that I think are rational people, middle of the road folks that get things done by partnering with all to do what's right by their people.
  4. It's a power trip. Preventing others who are "less than" her having something that she can get readily.
  5. She just can't handle not being relavant or the focus of attention. She's also playing the long game for her upcoming election, hoping to get money from R's. I'll not be surprised if she totally goes that way if she feels she needs to win. Bring on Ruben Gallego.
  6. And Syracuse the the B&J factory is almost 5 hours apart (1way)
  7. Pretty sure he just got a bunch of new fans rooting for him.
  8. ZRod - not sure if you live up here? I can say confidently that nobody is going to Cuse for the lake and the 2 weeks of fall. They don't leave campus often, when they might ski its BB season. It's a great little college town, but its proximity to Boston and NYC isn't a draw for any students that I know of ... unless maybe for those that might do summer internships in the cities. Course I'm only speaking of my friends who went there, but I'd think the athletes have the same or higher constraints (no skiing for them I'm pretty sure, training table and the like). I think his biggest adjustment (and maybe he'll view it as a positive) is the academic standards at Syracuse limits their recruiting targets - I assum UNL isn't as stringent.
  9. Russia is saying different charges were why she was able to leave and he isn't. Espionage vs drugs. Now we know the whole thing is bs, but there's not a doubt this had nothing to do with the US government or priorities, as much as the GOP will try to spin it and say so. It's not because she's black, or gay, or a woman, or an athlete, or a name brand - charges.
  10. And if the dude can get kids to Syracuse, where there's "nothing do to and it's cold and snowy" (said with whiney voice of all the folks who say we'll never be good because who wants to spend time in cold boring Nebraska) recruiting to Nebraska should be cake.
  11. I completely get it - I really had to force the jump to this. Single gal, don't have a garage or place to store it so needed to be able to pick it up to get it into a basement after use. Don't want to deal with gas engines and the battery versions I was looking at got heavy quick (and expensive). Hoping this allows me to do the little storms (of which we have many in New England), the ones where I'd say "its not worth calling the plow guy" and then I'd tweak my back. Fingers crossed!
  12. I did a search and couldn't find it here, but would be curious on thoughts from the group ... anybody here do financial planning professionally or for fun? I have a financial advisor/fiduciary but they've had some staff changes of late and so since I'm going to have to rebuild my relationship with them yet again, I think I'd like to diversify a bit outside of their company. I've purchased and ladder(d) some CDs but after listening to some folks lately I wonder about doing some plain jane S&P investing NOT thru them. I am betting that we've got folks on here, some of which do this sort of thing, and others who like to talk about it. What do you do and why????
  13. I just purchased an electric one from SnoJoe. I had to go for small, so less than $250 and got myself a 100ft cord ... can lift it up easily and it handles up to 6 inches, after that the snow guy will have to come with the big guns. But in all my research I decided that electric was the way to go for me ... batteries added up and the weight of the machine became an issue. Read a ton of reviews and ended up on this brand - not sure if they have larger options that might fit your needs, but also liked that the base was rubber so I can run it on my paver driveway and composite decking.
  14. And if we're going to get all riled up about d!ck pics, let's talk more about the photos that Kimberly Gargoyle was sharing at work of her "friends" packages (who I am fairly sure didn't ok the sharing). That's two times censoring problems right? Or is this one cool?
  15. There was an awareness that what they were doing was wrong and he and his staff worked to keep that from the greater public's view. If there was nothing to judge he wouldn't have worked so hard to keep it under wraps. It's ok to find out things about people that make you think differently of them - people have faults. You can still appreciate what they did and think that there were things they could/should have done differently. I'm sure if Tom was honest there are things he wished he did differently - I believe in the LP documentary he says as much.
  16. Yes and Bill lived in the NY house while she was working in DC and he established his presidential office in NYC. She lived in that NY house when she didn't have to be at work in DC. Her daughter moved to NYC for grad school so obviously there was a plan to be in NY after the WH. I guess I don't find fault with a president from AR who after 8 years outside the state doing big things determines that perhaps AR isn't the right fit for his/his family's future. I'm not sure I buy into the fact that they purchased a home in NY to just establish residency for her senate run. If that was the case they would have left that state years ago when she finished that role don't you think?
  17. And yet that's where they live. What am I missing (serious question - don't know if there was a post somewhere that I overlooked).
  18. I'm not sure that you read the article you actually attached there Nic ... first off 21,000 signatures were submitted asking for renaming (and there's nothing about those opposed to closing it. Where did you get the 93,000 figure?). And they're just re-theming the ride. So it's there but will be about a Disney theme (Princess & the Frog) I don't want to assume I understand what you were trying to say with your post - do you feel that because more people were advocating for leaving the name as is that it's noteworthy that Disney is renaming it? Are you upset that it's been renamed? Do you support the retheming? Are you surprised it took a few years? Are you pointing out with the stats (again not in the attached article or referenced in any way) that there are more folks supporting a theme that is racist in nature than those that aren't ? Are you pointing out that they renamed one of the Splash Mountains but not the other?
  19. Ummmmm buddy - murder and manslaughter are both inexcusible. Maybe the later is "understandable" per my previous post, but if they were excusable there would be no law against either one and no need to pull up the legal books to try and defend your position.
  20. I'd just change one word of the above - it wouldn't be excusable, but it would be understandable. Neither scenario is excusable unless this was a situation where someone was being abused or their life was at risk. If two consenting adults were hooking up with people other than their sig others I'd say the husband/wife/friend should and would be pissed, and I'd understand they'd be angry, but it wouldn't make any sort of battery or strangulation excusable.
