I would have thought you had seen it already. Glad I was able to point you to it. He has been getting a lot of comments from all over on it. He really wanted to be able to explain to the younger kids the meaning of it all.

My kiddo is not loving the Socratic process when sitting with debate team types in her college class who expatiate to show off. This author expatiates over the madness that is obama.

Paula said she sent it to her kids and said this explains how I grew up to be a Steelers fan. I haven’t been on Twitter much lately so I would have missed it, glad you posted it.

I’d rather ex-patriot the Emperor in Washington, except he never was a patriot in the first place.

In re: Michelle Obama, I’ll expatiate
I saw her at the diner, and the way she ate
Three burgers with fries
And a couple of pies
A milkshake, some ice cream. I’ll say she ate

Obams is expatiating up a storm of EOs . By all rights he should be extirpated instead.

Still waiting for you to weigh in on my question re; cops required at wedding receptions in Ytown area. You are the one to ask since you are local to their area, and no one else seems to have heard of it.

I’ve been to events where off duty police as security are required if the venue serves alcohol. I’ve also been to ones that do not. I think the difference was the ones that require it are government owned, public facilities.

well the place in Boardman where my niece had her wedding 6 yrs ago, had the requirement but waived it— Anthony’s? I think it was called.

my SIL asked me if we were having our own cop or if ANCC provided security. I was like, WHAT? had no idea what she was talking about bc I have never seen that done anywhere we have been.

so why this requirement? because Ytown is full of miscreants?

Some expatriates expatiate on how evil America is —often to the delight of the host regime— once they feel free of repercussions…

That’s my thought. They’ve had enough trouble with weddings and functions there that they require security. That tells you something.

I don’t know. Like I said it’s common in public buildings and I guess so private ones copy along.

Isn’t this just “gotcha” legislation? Some freak shows up dressed in drag for his job at McDonalds on a military base and if they try to reprimand for not wearing the uniform he sues them?

I’m sorry for the loss of your beloved Coach - we felt that way when Tom Landry died and we got a revolving door of “no way to compete” coaches.

You take moonshine and add time plus government regulations and you get bourbon.

The main problem here, as I see it, is that bourbon is the trendy thing now, like fancy tequilas were a while ago.

It is hard to suddenly make more 5 year old or 12 year old stuff appear. If you didn’t put it away then, you don’t have it now.

This is, amazingly, where prices actually work. If demand is so high that prices skyrocket, then people will move on to the next trendy thing.

I have zero idea of liquor trends. I thought flavored vodkas were big at one point, is that past too? open bar for hours at the cocktail hour and reception and I had a single glass of merlot and a champagne toast and that was it.

Thanks. The thing about the old school coaches is that, even if you hated playing against them, they all were made of the same kind of no-nonsense stuff.

“Act like you’ve been there before” after scoring. No “celebrating” mundane tasks.

Noll was famous for telling players that he was as likely to fire them as to motivate them. They were supposed to be professional football players. They shouldn’t require outside motivation to do their jobs and excell.

And Noll is a role model because he did his job and then went home to his family. He wasn’t looking for fame. He didn’t hawk Cadillacs or razor blades.

Obama’s minions just expatiate-
By now, their words just fall
On deaf ears of jaded people
Who know it is another stall

To distract the attention
From the fiasco of the day-
The e-mails were deleted-
That is all they have to say

If that is so, give the FBI
The hard drive that is “dead”
And watch them very carefully
As they make Lois Lerner’s bed...

Puedo comprar un asiento barato...

Maybe I’m being mean, but if I was in a business that hired employees, I’d come up with a dress code, type it, print copies and have every employee sign it. No compliance, no job...

A business has to be free to set their own rules. Of course, the way things are going [read Catholic schools and catholic school teachers who do not live according to the rules of the Church suing about their firing] that may not be true much longer.

Haha - no really - I may not like a certain team while playing but for each of them, players or coach, it is a job. I don’t really dislike most players or coaches - just those who are dog torturers or wife beaters...dead beat dads...that sort of thing.

We were discussing scotch the other day - does it only “age” while in the barrel or would a bottled 12 year old scotch, that you’ve owned for 3 years become 15 year old?

Yeah those old school guys are quickly fading...but then again, the diva players are multiplying so the old school guys probably wouldn’t survive these days. I’m sure they have professional babysitters for some of these guys!

Yes I agree and I’m sure McDonalds has a dress requirement beyond the uniform - hair/etc....but imagine a cross dressing freak showing up with wild hair and long nails, along with his uniform. This type of legislation is the gotcha stuff where that guy will sue his employer and get away with it.
