  1. You know in recent horror movies I've seen, they show ghost barely visible in the background of a dimly lit room. Maybe you could figure out a way to recreate that in dark areas of your house
  2. Fresh tomatoes, onion and cilantro is close to perfection
  3. if its that important, they can replace the tree. it will cost him thousands but you can transplant a mature hickory tree right back into that spot. me- i hate trees and love to cut them them down so i'd probably have the guy buy me a professional smoker for the back porch then have him cut all the hickory into firewood and stack it in your back yard. Probably get 4-6 cords out of it, enough to cook every day for years.
  4. I'm 52. I had my run with lots of ladies, lots of drinking and weed, parties, epic weekends. Lots of memories. The last 18 years or so is when marriage and family took over. At first you have these young kids running around, they're so damn cute and they become the highlight. You also tend to be in your peak earning years from say 35-55. So life gets easier, the vacations more fun. Your new standards of glory are centered around the family and your professional success. During this period i purposely devoted time to golf, drumming and skiing. I also read a lot and watch a lot of history and science stuff. My theory is you have to keep growing, no matter how old or successful you are. I'm a better golfer, drummer and skier at age 52 than age 32. I'm living my current glory years. So to avoid being the guy that gets stuck in the past I would say concentrate on today and tomorrow, keep learning new skills, keep reading, expose yourself to new experiences, be a dad and husband, like really be there. That's all I got
  5. Not sure if Netflix or Amazon but we watched Hereditary last night and I'd call it one of the scariest movies I've ever seen
  6. I saw this last night. I would put it in the masterpiece category. But it's dark, dark, dark. One scene especially is unnerving. I mean people were squirming. And even though it's R rated, it's not a blood and gore flick. I would say the R rating comes from the subject matter and a couple F bombs. Juaqin Phoenix deserves an Oscar. He won't get it because it's a comic book movie (not really) but he deserves one.
  7. I've got a running prediction in our office that Hillary will be the Dem nominee. She can't help herself and she still has a lot of friends in the DNC. Biden is toast and running a crappy low energy campaign regardless, Warren is unelectable and Bernie just had a heart attack. Here comes Hillary!
  8. In tense testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) on Friday, the inspector general for federal spy agencies refused to disclose why his office backdated secret changes to key whistleblower forms and rules in the wake of an anti-Trump whistleblower complaint filed in August, sources told The Federalist. As The Federalist reported and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12. That complaint, which was declassified and released by President Donald Trump in September, was based entirely on second-hand information, https://thefederalist.com/2019/10/07/intel-community-ig-stonewalling-congress-on-backdated-whistleblower-rule-changes/ Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general, told HPSCI lawmakers during a committee oversight hearing on Friday that the whistleblower forms and rules changes were made in September, even though the new forms and guidance, which were not uploaded to the ICIG’s website until September 24, state that they were changed in August. Despite having a full week to come up with explanations for his office’s decisions to secretly change its forms to eliminate the requirement for first-hand evidence and to backdate those changes to August, Atkinson refused to provide any explanation to lawmakers baffled by his behavior.
  9. i sure do. The "whistleblower" rules were changed right before the media and democrats blew open the "whistleblower" story - to allow the "whistleblower" process to report 2nd and 3rd hand information. This rule was changed by the IC IG Atkinson and he has still not given a good answer as to "why". Previously (forever) in order to qualify as a protected "whistleblower" you had to report 1st hand info. check one Adam Schiff denied that he had had contact with the 'whistleblower" prior to the initial reports in the media a month ago. Turns out he lied about that and had been in contact with the "whistleblower" since early August. He and his office coordinated with the whistleblower how to proceed with his 2nd and 3rd hand info. Then the the dems had a meeting where Pelosi emerges from the meeting and announces "we starting an impeachment inquiry" as if she alone has that power. She doesn't. She then gives the lead role in that "inquiry" to the same Adam Schiff that lied about his coordination with the alleged "whistlblower" who, remember, is a hearsay witness at this point and wouldnt be protected by any legal whistlblower statute had not the IC IG changed and backdated the requirements in september right before the story broke. Now Schiff is having hearings in SCIF rooms within congress, and they are calling this "an impeachment inquiry" In reality a) no vote on impeachment as in all previous impeachments and b) its all super secret so don't worry about any thing. Orange man bad. keep up the good work, the country is going to punish the Democrat party for a generation over this.
  10. Last week's sessions weren't just secret. They were super-secret. The first hearing, in which the witness was former Ukraine special envoy Kurt Volker, was held in what is known as a SCIF, which stands for sensitive compartmented information facility. It is a room in the Capitol built to be impervious to electronic surveillance so that lawmakers can discuss the nation's most important secrets without fear of discovery. The second hearing, in which Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson testified, was also held in the SCIF. Were highly classified matters discussed at the Volker and Atkinson hearings? Apparently not. Neither interview was classified. And even if some classified information were involved, it would be astonishing for Democrats to believe they could attempt to remove the president on the basis of information that is not available to the public. The secrecy, decreed by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, has taken Republicans by surprise. Some are now speaking out about it. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/end-impeachment-secrecy
  11. go ahead and argue that you are in favor of a) spying on the president, b) attempting to impeach the president in secret. I'm listneing and so are a lot of voters.
  12. no one cares what you "think", the law is clear on the executive. Only the most partisan judges would rule otherwise in a court of law. The presidents conversations with foreign leaders are protected, priveledged information. Otherwise how do you run a country>? this isn't hard logic. the impeachment process has been done before. This is the only time in history that a) there hasn't been a vote on it and b) the process is being done in secret
  13. at this rate, Trump will win all 50 states. Its going to be a landslide. I wouldn't be surprised if the Republicans hold all branches after the 2020 election.
  14. and for the record, this "impeachment" is the result of our intelligence agencies spying on the presidents protected conversation with the president of a foreign country. This is what you are in favor of. So we know the rules for the next time a Dem is the President. This is what you are in favor of now.
