re: Do you drink coffee everyday? Caffeine withdrawal? - MStant1
If I don’t have any caffeine, then generally by 3 or 4 pm I have an almost migraine level headache, I get nauseous, and may even vomit. Almost like a heroin addict detoxing. It’s pretty pathetic. I drink a ton of coffee and soda though. ...

If one has a PhD they usually do call themselves Dr. If this is surprising to you, then I’m going to guess you didn’t go to college with professors. She has two masters and a PhD. Calling her Dr isn’t a fabrication. ...

re: Libertarians for Trump - MStant1
I’m a former Ron Paul disciple and used to be a pretty vocal libertarian on this board back in 2010-2012. These days, I’ve pulled away from the hard lines, have become largely jaded, and wouldn’t know how to describe myself politically if I tried. All that said, it has been shocking to me how so man...

[quote]The millions in interest wan't...soo..[/quote] It was because that’s how frozen accounts due to sanctions work. All assets that are frozen due to US sanctions (regardless of country) go into an interest bearing account. [link=(https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/faqs/Sanctions/Page...
