The DUP voted with the tories this evening. I don't like that :( (Though it was 6 and not 10).

Perhaps they were intimidated by John McDonnell wanting a United Ireland in the Newsletter.

You're a conundrum to me Whitey. But I do agree with you on many things. Hope the rest of your day is good. I am now going for a walk in Garza's Canyon to think about the Hills of Granemore. Cheers

I wasnt the one making snarky comments about Elizabeth Warren....that was someone else......I actually defended her. (I mentioned that shes accused of plagiarizing some of the recipies she submitted, but thats well known)

While I disagree with her on many things, I do actually agree with some of her ideas.  My big beef with her is from the time she was running against Scott Brown, the taxpayers of Massachusetts paid to have voter registration forms mailed to all welfare recipients in the state

Deficit is a major issue, and there should have been no tax cuts until it was addressed.

Payday loans should be banned.....I watched a Netflix documentary about it

BTW....Im a registered Independent......Im not a Republican

Always had a healthy life, ran swam and cycled regularly.
Laughed and reached out to all my friends who had the need emotionally(was basically the go to guy!)..however in recent times it's all gone Pete Tong.
My wife is having some personal issues and my eldest child is causing some serious problems.
So to relate to the thread in question I've started drinking fairly regularly at home to escape all this shit which is crumbling me very slowly indeed. I'm far from happy in my life. That's a shit thing to say as any outsider who looks in would probably say I have it all. I'm sorry for ranting a bit but it's just how I feel. I don't recognise myself anymore and I'm scared


Get every drop of alcohol in the house and pour it down the sink....tonight (and dont let another drop inside the door).

Reach out to a friend, a priest or someone who can get you to an AA meeting TOMORROW

As bad as things are, it can and will get a heck of a lot worse if you dont seek help

Bar the healthy bit my experience is the mirror opposite of you, my other half has had medical issues and our lad has had major issues over the last few years with school, add to that an unhealthy work environment for myself has pushed me away from drink rather than towards it, I'd say I'm afraid to drink. I find it only takes the annoyances away for so long and brings them back in the morning twice as bad...



If your scared you need to talk to someone.

The GOP think climate change is a Chinese hoax

https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2018/oct/10/climate-change-what-will-happen-hellfire-california-forest-fires

I wonder what the lads in the Gaaboard 4 Chan think.

Fear mongering at it's very best, lets legally spray the skies, block off the dreaded sun and introduce a worldwide carbon tax along with greater control of the people.

The real cause of the Californian fires:

What about the floods in Florida? Another Soros conspiracy ?

It's a small wonder that Soros has not won a Nobel Peace Prize already along with warmongers Kissinger and Obama and hoaxer Al Gore.
They would make ideal members of "The Party".

You need to get off those conspiracy sites and go for a long walk. . You could concentrate on something real like voter suppression.

Fake news-they can cast provisional ballots (in Georgia)

The GOP candidate for governor personally oversees the purging of 50K+ voters off the rolls, most of them minorities, about 2% of the electorate, and its "fakes news" to report on it.

Nothing to see here, let's move on, just the dirty lamestream media victimizing the poor conservatives once again. Because everyone is going to go through all the fighting and hassle to make sure their provisional ballot is counted. ::)

God bless them. The GOP, as usual, clutching their pearls as they shaft democracy.

Believe whatever you want.

Have you read that. What has a “dispute” between 2 Democrats  about the numbers of new voters they have registered got to do with Kemp suppressing the minority vote. if you ever come up with something on point and real I will be happy to acknowledge it. Now go back to your sophomoric name calling of Elizabeth Warren and keep missing the real story about the GOP driving the deficit through the roof.

A guy I’ve known for 20 years lives in Atlanta and his version of events goes along the lines of

The Democrats went on a big registration push over the past few years. They hired a bunch of people for $10-$12 per hour to go out and register people of color to vote . To get paid, they had certain quotas to hit, so they ended up with a sizable number of registrations that are duplicates or cannot be verified.  In short-garbage in, garbage out

If you had two brain cells to rub together and understood the article, her DEMOCRATIC primary opponent actually agreed with what my buddy told me. Many of the new registrations are garbage and that’s why they have been flagged

But believe whatever you want


I did read the article and my interpretation is that Evans was saying Abrams new voter registration numbers are not as big as she (Abrams) was claiming. But then I don't have a guy in Atlanta (Would he be called O'Keeffe by chance) who can take my reading of the article to a place where voter suppression by Kemp is mitigated by the garbage in garbage out premise. BTW You did not have any comment about our soaring deficit? And instead of snarky comments about Elizabeth Warren talk to me about Mick Mulvaney's love affair with payday loan sharks

Good reason to go for a little jog along the coastal path from Fortwilliam then...

That's a great idea.  Presumably they open different bottles every day or week?

Yes they change it every so often.. you get a card and put money on it and you dispense the wine yourself. Very busy and they serve breads and cold meats also
