    Know which county? I may know a few folks (lawyers, county commissioners, etc.) since I lived in SW VA for about 13 years
  2. Same thing we got when we trained a bunch of Saudis to briefly fly commercial airliners.

    So, you claim to know there is a cartel in El Salvador; then say you know jack dick about locations. And then you assume to know what I know. For someone who seems to complain about reading comprehension, you're sure missed the lesson on sarcasm, eh? What the fug does any of this even mean? You have shaped a conclusion in your own mind that drug cartels are rampant throughout Mexico and Central America and they are the reason for the immigration issue. Now you're working overtime to make an argument that will fit your conclusion.

    And every president for the past 40 years has also acknowledged that immigration reform is necessary. The only effective way to eradicate a commodity whose sole existence depends on supply & demand is to decrease the demand. Going after cartels on foreign soil is ludicrous, a waste of money and dangerous. Only a very small part of this is true. There are no drug cartels in Guatemala, El Salvador or Nicaragua which are driving families north. The same administration which started the "Just Say No to Drugs" was also responsible for creating a socio-economic disaster throughout Central America that has continued to manifest itself into our immigration issue. And if fugwad Trump is going praise, bow down to and otherwise kiss ass to guys like Kim, Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, why doesn't he start negotiating with the drug kingpins in South America and Mexico? Art of the deal, am I right? I mean, he's shown such an aptitude for it and has such a long and storied track record of negotiating big, huge, beautiful deals, right?
  5. https://healthytopic.org/aaf-had-reported-financial-crisis-before-week-2-yahoo-sports/ For all the good publicity the Alliance of American Football received early on, it’s still a startup business. Like plenty of other startup businesses, the AAF might have been underfunded to start. The Athletic’s David Glenn, citing multiple sources, reported that the league was in danger of not making payroll last week, just the second week of the league’s existence. The crisis was averted. Glenn wrote that Carolina Hurricanes majority owner Tom Dundon will be introduced as the AAF’s new chairman after investing $250 million in the AAF. The NHL owner’s investment allowed the league to meet its financial obligations. It’s a reminder that, while the AAF isn’t necessarily competing with the NFL, the previous pro football leagues that tried to go head-to-head with the NFL could never come close to competing with the established league’s vault of money. From the Athletic’s story, the AAF’s situation last week sounded tense. “Without a new, nine-figure investor, nobody is sure what would have happened,” one source told Glenn at The Athletic. “You can always tell people their checks are going to be a little late, but how many are going to show up on the weekend for games when they don’t see anything hit their bank accounts on Friday?” That’s a stark contrast to the good feelings surrounding the league after its debut. Ratings were good, and a lot was made of the AAF’s first set of games drawing more viewers than an NBA game on ABC between the Rockets and Thunder. Overall the reception to the league was positive, which is rare for anything in the social media age. The league clearly has done some things very well, but it was in trouble financially out of the gates. Dundon’s infusion of cash should help. The Athletic reported that Dundon could be positioning himself to get an AAF team in Raleigh, N.C., though a source told Glenn that while Raleigh is an option for an expansion or relocated franchise, it wouldn’t happen until 2020 at the earliest. The new league will have its struggles. There was far less buzz about the league in Week 2, which is what happened with the XFL in 2001. Everyone knew that Week 1 interest and ratings didn’t mean the AAF had arrived, though they were promising signs. Now the challenge is to try to keep the momentum going through the rest of the inaugural season. Hopefully for the league, the financial bumps of the first couple weeks were averted due to a large investment. It’s a reminder what the AAF, or any new league, is up against as it tries to establish itself.

    He may not be directly responsible for the Instagram post, but he is accountable for it. And "accountability" is something the GOP is in very short supply of these days.

    Recommend a lawn mower

    It's all about the engine. Husqvarna actually makes a self-propelled models with a Honda engine (LC221RH) for $399 @ Lowe's. I have a pressure washer with a Honda engine and that puppy starts first pull every time, even after it's been sitting for 6 months.
  8. Maybe Trump's people wrote the nomination and got Abe to sign it. That wouldn't surprise me, either.

    I think she can find him in contempt and immediately jail him.

    For those of you not very familiar with Roger Stone, he's probably the only guy sleazier, dirtier and more of a scumbag than Manafort or Trump. And if Stone ever opened his mouth to squeal like the bitch he is, Trump would be in jail next week.
  11. Governor Cooper should reach out to the White House and demand Dotard Trump "get the band back together" and reconvene the Voter Fraud Commission, headed by the now-unemployed former Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach. And, although I certainly expected the usual whataboutism from the GOP, it came right out of the gate in the very first post on the subject by G5.
  12. I've noticed quite a few of the players who were drafted by the NFL were ultimately released due to a camp injury during their rookie year. The AAF gives them an opportunity to show what they've got now that they're healthy. I would think an AAF player on an NFL team's radar will have a better shot at making a team than a 6th round draft choice from a small school.
  13. I watched one game on TBS, another on CBSSN and last night was on NFL Network. And I have to pull for San Diego, just because I'm an old Navy guy and it's my hometown... even if their QB is really not that good....
  14. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/japan-nominated-trump-nobel-peace-prize-after-white-house-asked-n972661 Trump boasted at a news conference on Friday that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him a copy of a five-page letter he'd sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which selects the annual Peace Prize laureates. Referring to Abe, Trump said: "He said: 'I have nominated you, respectfully, on behalf of Japan. I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize.' I said, 'Thank you.'" The national newspaper Asahi Shimbun, citing multiple Japanese government sources, reported Sunday that the U.S. government "informally" asked Japan to nominate Trump after he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last year. At a meeting of the lower house of Japan's parliament on Monday, Abe said he wouldn't comment on the report because Peace Prize nominations are secret for 50 years. But he did say: "I'm not saying it's not true." ------------------------------------------------------------------ Let's start a list of all the reasons for his nomination that we already know about. Feel free to contribute: Separating children from their families and locking them in cages Arming the Saudis in a proxy war in Yemen, resulting in one of the worst famines in modern history Refusing to acknowledge factual evidence that the Saudi crown prince was involved in the murder of a United States resident and news reporter Almost daily references to the press as the "enemy of the people." Just a few things off the top of my head that are worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.
  15. https://www.statesman.com/sports/20190217/garrett-gilbert-leads-orlando-to-aaf-victory-over-san-antonio Was 19/28, 393 yds with 3 completions over 50 yards in a come-from-behind victory. Don't know about you guys, but I watched 3 AAF games this weekend and they are fun to watch. No kickoffs, post-score possessions start at the 25, no PAT (2-point conversions are required), shorter play clock...
