Re: Restaurant week, Jan 20-25

The usual crowd went to Captain Bill's last night. Delicious, as usual, but not as busy this year. The weather last year was about the same, though last year I don't think we were looking at a week of arctic weather hurtling in our direction, nor was it a snow day. Maybe the four day week has thrown...

Re: Donald Trump, Psychopath

Some talking head the other night suggested that Trump doesn't want the wall built any more than the Democrats do, because then he would lose it as a campaign issue for 2020. Not to mention the way it gets the deplorables among his base all hepped up and shouting at his early 2020 rallies/ego stroke...

Re: Dekker NBA flop

My nephew mentioned seeing him play in the game against the Bulls last Friday, so I'm guessing Dekker is still just as much fun as ever to watch. Of course, my nephew is a Dukie, so he was really there to cheer for Wendell Carter, even though he still wanted the Wizards, his hometown team, to win. D...

Re: Donald Trump, Psychopath

But surely the chance to destroy that butterfly preserve would make it all worth it? Not to mention the opportunity to mess up the lives of a bunch of poor people and Native Americans who live along the border and are now able to cross it at will? Can't have people who just want to be left alone to ...

Re: Lame duck

Lame duck Walker is looking for a new job. Supposedly he is being considered for Secretary of the Interior, now that the current office holder is resigning in disgrace. I wonder how much damage Walker could do in that position. Hmmm... And only last Friday he was declaring his intention to stay in ...

Re: Sore losers

Governor Scott Walker: Came in like a weasel, went out like a weasel. And that's the legacy he'll no doubt pretend to be proud of to anyone who bothers to listen to him for the rest of his sad, sorry life. Good riddance!

What his local paper has to say about his winning the award: DNR's Halvorsen recognized with leadership award https://www.newrichmond-news.com/sports/outdoors/4385097-dnrs-halvorsen-recognized-leadership-award Sounds like he's had a long and distinguished career, including public outreach and high-p...

Re: Melania traveling in style

The Deluxe Suite at the former Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto (now the Adelaide Hotel Toronto) is only $1155 for one night. When President Obama came here in... 2011?... I remember he and his staff occupied a full floor of the Sheraton, and security emptied the floors above and below hi...

Re: What's wrong with the GOP, anyway?

From further down in the Channel3000 article: In the video, Hyde-Smith appeared to be speaking during a campaign event about the support of a Mississippi rancher. The line drew applause and laughter from the crowd. The short video clip was met with immediate backlash online and had more than 2 milli...

Re: You are a rude, terrible person

Ooooooo! But it wouldn't be safe! Haven't you heard that France has been overrun by Muslims (= terrorists according to the coward Trump, in case you missed the dog whistle)? Just like parts of London! And Jersey City! Of course, we shall not speak about the high priced American (presumably) helicopt...

Re: Since I haven't seen the thread yet... I Voted!

Saw somewhere online today that Milwaukee had a 73% turnout (of registered voters?) -- not up to Dane County standards (92%) but still pretty darn good considering the under-50% turnout of most of the voter-slackers in this country (though now I'm wondering what the national voter turnout was for th...

Re: Sessions out as attorney general

Remember, Sessions is under investigation by Mueller as well, and has been questioned several times. I'm guessing he'll be meeting with Mueller again soon:) #trumptowerelf Interesting thought. So what if anything does Sessions owe Trump, now that he's been cut loose? I had figured that Trump finall...
