Help with a gas or infrared grill purchase - Powerman
I prefer charcoal, but this is for a gift Looking for something in the 200-350 range that's either a gas or infrared grill preferably with a side burner. Any suggestions? Any comments on infrared vs traditional gas? Can you get a better sear with infrared? That's what this will be primarily...

Best places in south LA to live? - Powerman
So I've lived in Houma, BR, Nola before although I didn't have a lot of money on me during those times. I'm considering moving back to south LA and it doesn't really matter where I live since I'm working offshore now. Any suggestions for some areas to live? I'm considering somewhere in the NOLA...

Tax revenues hit all time high for FY 2014 - Powerman
I thought that when rates go up revenues went down and vice versa? Isn't that the narrative here? Why didn't it happen? http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-meyer/246t-tax-revenues-fy14-hit-record-through-july-govt-runs-460b-deficit [quote][i]Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues[/i] ...

Anyone here into the bullet proof coffee thing? - Powerman
I've tried it a handful of times. It's tasty and frothy but I don't know if I'm sold on all of the alleged health benefits and claims of increased mental focus. For those that are unfamiliar essentially it's just coffee that you throw in a blender with some sort of fat base like unsalted butter,...

Is Smith's Creamery Milk still available anywhere? - Powerman
I know about the fire and that they had shut down for a while then I'm reading some articles that Kleinpeter had some sort of partnership to get them back on their feet. I was thinking of picking some up on the way back to Texas if it's still available? Does anyone know where I can find it if it...

Litmus tests for political insanity - Powerman
What are some in your book? I think any outrage over the new Coke ad needs to be added to the list. It's about as good of a litmus test as there is. If you are offended by this commercial, you are insane and your opinions should be ignored. What are some other classics from the past that wou...

Healthcare costs and tort reform - crushing your myths - Powerman
So there is an anchored thread which is nothing more than a troll thread where this topic got brought up. So let's lay out some facts: 1. The U.S. spends more per capita than any other nation on healthcare by a wide margin. In 2011 OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Developmen...

General advice on relocation - Powerman
So, I've put in for a job transfer within my own company that will allow me some flexibility with moving. I'm currently in the South Texas area (Corpus Christi metro area) and I don't care for it much here to be honest. I could have stayed here a long time with the work they had on the books b...

Who is to blame for this alleged disappearance of the middle class? - Powerman
Let's just say for the sake of argument that you accept the premise that the middle class is shrinking and we're being put into a 2 tier class system of rich and poor with a slowly diminishing middle class. One school of thought is to blame the government since the middle class burdens a pretty l...

Worst kitchen fails? I had mine last night - Powerman
So I got this electric pressure cooker that I bought as a Christmas present to myself. Seemed pretty simple and I thought I had followed the directions clearly. From what I understand these things are fairly easy to operate (well I'm clumsy so there goes that) So I put it on and everything se...

Free Market Proponents and Tax Deductions - Powerman
So the other thread about taxes made me think of this and I always find it rather interesting I always see a lot of people who claim to be for a free market with as little government influence as possible defend tax deductions. This seems like an obvious instance of ideological inconsistency. I...

Things to do with Andouille sausage? - Powerman
I'm pretty sure the only thing I've ever used it for was for making gumbo. My dad made a trip back home and got me a few links of andouille. My natural inclination is to use it in a chicken and andouille gumbo but I'm curious what other dishes you all use it in. He had made a turnip stew with s...
