It's all Austin. Damn Sheriff Hernandez, she's refusing to hand over drunkards, rapists, and other criminals. Shameful...

re: AHCA Biggest CF I have seen in the legislative process for 20+ years - Jackalope
You realize if this bill passes...it doesn't become law. It goes to the senate...first to committee where things can change, then the senate makes changes to it then the whole body votes.....it then has to be approved. Then it goes into conference committee which is made up of House and a senate mem...

re: Texas brethren? - Jackalope
[u][b]Dislikes:[/b] [/u]They have the absolute worst bakery. Truly bad. If you are from BR and used to Calandro's, LeBlancs, even Mathernes has better bakeries. All the breads are soft, overly sweet, and not very tasteful. It is the one area where HEB should try to improve. But they don't need to to...

re: So...Trump Met with historically black universities and colleges - Jackalope
There's no way the media would have given the HBCU meeting any coverage unless they hadn't something weird to report on. Like KAC. She was trolling them, they took the bait....

re: I'm looking for a good, recent political book to read. Any sugggestions? - Jackalope
Agreed, I can't stand modern political books. They lack deep philosophy. It's a consequence of our celebrity-talking-head class of pundits. ...

re: Living together before marriage - Jackalope
Pros: "test the waters" Cons: it makes the wedding less substantial of a change. Week before marriage is the same as two weeks after. Then you're just back in the routine. Also, why give away the last months of freedom? ...

re: Espresso Machine recommendations - Jackalope
Another big selling point for me was cleaning. It requires less cleaning than a keurig, and because the water is hotter, it gets scaling at a slower pace than a keurig. I'd say I de-scale once every 4 to 5 months....

re: Espresso Machine recommendations - Jackalope
Nespresso is very good. No mess, and the pods are recyclable. I use it for all my espresso drinks, and a french press for my coffee. However, Nespresso has the Vertuo line for the American market. The difference is that it also makes coffee like a Keurig (using a different size pod). The pods are...

re: DEMS are lighting fires under the American people. They are about to get burned - Jackalope
People don't realize Trumps play here. There will absolutely be another terror attack. He tried very hard to institute 'extreme vetting', and the liberal/PC culture stopped him. They will then have blood on their hands. Also, a terror attack while Trump is president will be radically different th...
