What about Austin? Poor Austin.


What about everyone? Or do you only pick jurisdictions in which a super majority vote the same way as you.

Republicans would never allow it to happen


Your sentiment must be why everyone is moving here


Bless your heart ♥️

While Texas would fare better than most states, I still don't think it can be its own country without losing a lot.

Honestly California is the only state that could truly be an independent country.

I’m fine with that. Can you share some BBQ recipes before you go though?

Hi, looking for some pointers. The most expensive watch I have bought so far is a Tag - Aqua Racer, from many years ago. I feel like getting a slightly nicer watch, and am researching the following:
1. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
2. Rolex Datejust
3. Grand Seiko - not narrowed to specific models

Price range: no more than 10K, but prefer to keep ~$6K. Like watches in the ~40mm size and not too many complications - i.e. more “elegant”

Would appreciate any guidance on how to think about options

This is interesting. I knew people could plead the 5th to avoid self incrimination. I also knew people could be granted immunity so they could speak freely without incriminating themselves.

I didn’t know the DOJ could confer immunity on somehow in order to force them to testify without being able to claim the 5th. It makes sense in theory, I just didn’t realize it was actually a thing.

It really is concerning that neither the President, nor a lot of the Trumpers in this bowl, will acknowledge that white supremacy is wrong.

They just try to deflect and deny. It does make you wonder why, doesn't it?


For those pushing the 'Both Sides' narrative, it's interesting how only one side supports rioters storming the Capitol, trying to take members of Congress hostage, and leaving pipe bombs in front of offices.

While you can make the argument it’s been going on for longer, the GOP has spent the last decade telling their base not to believe anyone but them. This gave us the Tea Party and Freedom Caucus. Now, the President is leading the charge, and half the country simply can’t accept the reality that Trump lost. The GOP is being burnt by the fire they started and fanned.
