  1. For shits and grins, I think I found the referenced story after some googling: "CBS Mortgage Revamp". Within the CBS article, it says that the change "is causing consternation among some mortgage professionals". It's evidence for this consternation is a New York Post article, linked from the main article. Bottom line is that this doesn't do what your media sources say it does. There are specific cases where a high credit score borrower could pay more than they do today, and some where they could pay less. The change will have winners and losers (from what I can see, the winners outnumber the losers, as should be the case in policy changes). Right-wing media instinctively jumps on this to paint the losers as "Joe Everyman being screwed by Biden", and gullible followers jump on the red meat.

    How meta would it be if slim actually IS a trophy wife????!!!????
  3. So my 73-year old mother has been fighting the great fight against cancer for about 6 years. It seems that cancer just recently got the upper hand. I got the word on Friday morning that things were bad. From leaving my house in North Texas @ 5am Saturday to get to Northern Cape Breton was 4 airports, followed by a 6 hour drive and 30-hours total to walk into the hospital and see a literal ring of skin cancer crawling up my mother's neck: far more aggressive and gnarly than it was a week ago, although she's still awake, alert, and bitching at me for cancelling a work trip to come home to see her. I'm not fishing for sympathy and I don't do 'thoughts and prayers'....Just all this to say hug your Mom and get home as often as possible, before the possibilities run dry. Can't help but think that this may be my last trip to Cape Breton. If you'd love to visit one of the most beautiful places in North America, come check it out. The 'world famous' Cabot Trail that people come from all over the world to drive was just 'the road' when we were growing up...never appreciated the beauty of the place when I was seeing it out of the school bus window, but it's definitely one of the most beautiful parts of the world I've had the good fortune to see.
  4. You say that with respect to what, exactly? COVID vaccinations, or the plethora of vaccines that the US armed forces has administered as a matter of course for dozens of years? Or have you not thought this out any further than “yeah, suck it Libs!”?
  5. Once, several years ago, my wife asked me this question. I instinctually, instantly deleted that section of my memory and I think that was the best decision for everybody involved.

    VP debate

    When I clicked the 'NEXT UNREAD TOPIC" button in 2023, this popped up. I started reading out of interest and thought it might be worth bumping to see what our collective impression was of Trump/Pence back then. The last post about Springer pushed it over the top.

    I’ve got not back-channel comms and all my tin foils is utilized in non hat-related applications, but I am impressed with his seemingly incessant ability to post bullshit
  8. I imagine most people on here are familiar with the old ad campaign that the 'Real Women of Politics' is mocking, but for those who weren't in the Americas 15 years ago (you're welcome, Slim) here's a few of the originals. Video quality isn't great but I still think these are hilarious. Old Bud Real Men of Genius
  9. I was pretty sure that the white dude was fucking that dog.
  10. It just means you have a more refined pallet.

    He posts videos from Belarusian and Pakistani accounts claiming that they're absolute proof of Ukraine's demise. Just take a look at the history of Youtube videos from those accounts: they've been predicting the imminent collapse of Bakhmut for months now.
  12. Thanks for catching that one (those two?), my mistake.

    So once people pointed out that a bio-lab most-often a pretty benign, even benevolent operation, you've upgraded Ukraine to being infested with NAZI BIO-LABS!!!!!!!
  14. You mean they're gonna lose tactical sunglasses, MyPillow and at-home catheters?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Ohhhhhh Noooooooooooooooooooo.
  15. Just popped over to bullshit mountain, aka Fox to see what they had to say about it. Their homepage has 3 links to stories about Don Lemon being dropped by CNN, but not a mention of Tucker. Keeping their readers in blissful ignorance is what they do best….
  16. I don't believe that's the case. From what I understand, the law says that in a public place, or even on your own property but outside the house, there's a 'duty to retreat' as the first means of defence before resulting to deadly force. If the attacker makes that not an option then the use of deadly force is justified. If somebody is attacking you inside your home, the use of deadly force is justified. I'm no lawyer and I'm just parroting what I found in 5 minutes of the Goggles, but that seems to be what is stated on several NY law offices' descriptions and what I can understand from perusing NY State law 35.

    Yeah look at that massive jump in 2020; whoever was president then sure was doing a shitty job
  18. I guess stranger things have happened...I don't see Trump switching from making accusations that DeSantis was grooming high school kids to inviting him to be a running mate, but I've also never accused the man of being a sound decision-maker.
  19. 2016 taught me to never make political predictions, but if I were a betting man I'd say DeSantis is spent. He doesn't have the skills or the guts to take a meaningful stance against Trump; Trump is going to dance a jig on DeSantis' political grave while DeSantis continues to bow to the alter of Trump in order to not piss off the base, while simultaneously trying to take tiny pot-shots at Trump in order to frame himself as an alternative. It'll do nothing but piss off everybody involved and embolden Trump for having taken down his biggest challenger....That'd be my prediction, if I was into the whole prediction game
  20. Yeah, and once we hit 13 we realized what those other plants were, and started raiding those instead
  21. That’s a pretty telling phrase right there. I dunno…this is the most that people have been talking about Bud Light in a while. I’d be willing to bet a few people have checked it out due to the coverage, and most likely the snowflakes who stopped drinking it in protest just switched to another A-B product. Did you know, the company still makes money even if you buy their shit with the intent of driving a steam roller over it?
  22. Two quotes from the same guy....There's either some big swings in the standards he holds people to, or he's just a troll who doesn't like trans ppl.
  23. Would you expect any less?
  24. Reminds me of this Stephen Lynch song.
  25. Thanks for keeping us up to date on the goings on in the motherland, Comrade.
