If abortions were illegal, should this activity be illegal as well?...

Interesting read. I'd like to hear the other side of the story, if there is one.

| Food and Drink Board|| Finished off a smoked brisket in the slow cooker - BayouBlitz on 6/16/14 at 1:41 pm|
Saturday, I smoked a 4 lb brisket for about 5 hours at 275-300 degrees, using apple wood chips.
I just used a dry rub which consisted of good smoked paprika, hungarian paprika, mustard powder, ancho chili powder and Slap Yo Mammas.
Wrapped it in foil and cooked at 325 until the internal temp w...
| Political Talk|| Will you admit that there are smarter people on the other side? - BayouBlitz on 5/14/14 at 2:19 pm|
Meaning...will you admit that people exist with differing political views than you that are smarter than you?
My guess is that most people on this board won't.
I lean left, and I know some brilliant people that are conservatives. The smartest person I've ever met is a little left of me.
| Food and Drink Board|| Going to make black bean soup tonight - BayouBlitz on 5/10/14 at 1:40 pm|
I soaked the beans overnight and reserved some of the liquid. I also fried up some bacon. My plan is to:
Saute onions in bacon fat, then some garlic in a cast iron pot. Then add chicken stock, some of the soaking liquid, beans, salt and pepper, chili powder and a little vinegar and simmer for ...
| Food and Drink Board|| What's the best dish to judge a Mexican restaurant? - BayouBlitz on 5/7/14 at 8:53 am|
If you had to go to 5 Mexican restaurants, which dish would you order at all 5 to judge? (I'm not doing this, just curious.)
Something basic? Complicated?
I find myself ordering chili relleno a lot when it's my first visit.
Chips and salsa are a good gauge at first. But what about mai...
| Political Talk|| Republicans: Anybody other than Cruz or Santorum - BayouBlitz on 3/9/14 at 10:06 am|
And I will consider voting R over Hillary.
For the record, I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
But if either of these clowns gets the nomination, I have no choice other than to conclude that the R party is still too broken.

Eating it for lunch at work today. Pretty damn good I must say. Sorry, no pics.

Where's the MSM on this? According to this right leaning board, this should be the headlines everywhere. Race not focused on with this one. At all.

According to what actual evidence has been shown, I don;t see how he can get convicted of murder. Whether or not it was self defense, I have no idea. I wasn't there. But the evidence just isn't there to come close to a conviction.
Having said that, we know he was armed and pursued an individua...

Was at Winn Dixie a few nights ago and was browsing the meat section for something to fry up right quick for after work. They had cubed pork chops on sale for a very low price. I've never seen cubed pork chops. So I decided to try them.
Just fried them up tonight. They were decent size, about...

Cops get pissed immediately because this guy knows the law. And they don't. And they get real quiet when they discover the camera. I'm actually very surprised the camera didn't have 'an accident'.

| Political Talk|| So do liberals love or hate the Jewish? - BayouBlitz on 6/30/13 at 8:05 pm|
I've read on this board that liberals hate Israel.
Then I've read that liberals love Hollywood, which is run by the Jews, who are mostly Democrat.
So which is it? Or is it situational; dependent upon which makes liberals look worse?...

by the right wingers on this board, heavily, in the past. And now that Wikileaks has befriended Snowden...not a peep.

I went to my first Birmingham Barons game of the season last night. (The new Regions ball park is pretty awesome.)
Looked up to see who was batting, and sure enough, Jared Mitchell. He was batting .147, and popped up 2 bunts for easy outs, one with the bases loaded.
I know he had surgery, an...
| Political Talk|| Where is the $5 a gallon gas - BayouBlitz on 6/10/13 at 2:42 pm|
That so many people predicted? I just paid $3.17 for 87 octane. And this is the time of year when gas prices are supposed to be higher.
In 2011 and 2012, predicting $5 a gallon gas was all the rage. And that was a short term prediction. And it's not like the Middle East has been without flare...
