If you're going to eat red meat (which is fine in and of itself), have red meat no more than, say, twice a week. As King said, replace it with more chicken and, IMO, especially turkey (my favorite lunchmeat and a fairly low-calorie one). Does Braum's do turkey burgers?

Abstaining from red meat isn't hard, I found, with a healthy supply of chicken and turkey--ground or breasts is what I typically bought.

Region as defined by me. Sass not welcomed, as this is what I consider the general cultural boundaries to be, and I live here.

Illinois, obv.

I live here too. What'cha gonna do about it?

Small surprise. We're not even supposed to be there, by my recollection of "King of the Hill".

It's also a total fabrication of modern liberals (which, to their credit, has now been accepted as fact by many) that being racist/supporting segregation is an inherently "socially conservative" thing.  All conservative has meant in modern politics has been opposition to the New Deal or "policies of the Republican Party" ... Anything else is purely conjecture.

Well, this is bunk. It might be what people align in their heads, but what people think is far from the actual truth.

Both the House and our neighbors are currently in a state where we get "bars" on our phones/laptops/etc., but there's no actual wi-fi. Communistcast, is, of course, to blame for this. Despite the fact that their website claims that the issue was resolved yesterday, the problem persists at both Sigma Pi and KDR, much to the detriment of all involved. I spoke with a Communistcast representative earlier today, and then handed the phone off to a brother who was around. Absolutely useless. If corporations are people, this one will burn in the firepits of Hell for all eternity.

Mung Beans, I'm currently in a regrettable state of affairs that involves me not being able to drink. Do your part and take up the cross for me, dammit.

Since I first read about it, 1796 has been one of my favorite elections, filled with my favorite "characters" of American history. I was glad to read your take on it.

Hoodies are hardcore scene fashion.

Aren't they like everywhere fashion? I don't know if it's appropriate to call something that specific when you can see hoodies just as commonly about anywhere else.

Thanks. Will you be going over the themes of Agnew's election over Clinton later on?

My back is feeling better tonight, so I'll have no trouble getting to work tomorrow.  I have put in 25.5 hours this week and after an 8.5 hour day tomorrow, I will be able to take off at 1400 Friday.   Tomorrow night, I will watch the Texas A&M vs South Carolina game on the SEC NETWORK from 1700 to 2030 and then watch Big Brother.

Well done!  Told you a little R & R would go a long way.  People these days just don't understand the virtues of laying around and relaxing. 

Rich & Royal? Don't tell me Bushie's buying sh#t booze now.

Rich & Royal?  What is that, hobo bourbon? 

I think he meant to say Rich & Rare, which is hobo Canadian whisky.

Sorry, my last encounter with it was sometime in like February, and I'm glad I haven't had an opportunity to read the label since (I think I was crossing it in my head with "Canadian Royal", another aberration I've had the misfortune of falling prey to). In either case, hopefully Bushie's not drinking it and is saving his pennies to buy actual stuff.

An air horn?

Probably inhumane.

What the bat's doing--intruding on private property--is probably even more inhumane. Lack of respect for private property is yet another reason why I've consistently taken the humans-only stance on U.S. citizenship.

Only on Atlas would a Workers' Party win over 50% of the vote in a three-way race, LOL.

Let's not forget the previous two Presidents were Calvin Coolidge and Al Smith.

It makes sense given that the other two parties split the right-wing vote, and it fits the historical narrative.

Can we see maps for elections where the outcome has already been made clear (changes to '68 and possibly '72 due to Nixon's selection of Bush, and the 1976 GOP primaries and general election)?

Only on material necessities like food, booze, housing, and school. The idea that anyone could have a "wish list" right now shows that they're not busy enough.

Clay, enthusiastically.  Jackson is one of my least favorite Presidents we've ever had, and I probably would have hated him even more back then.

Universal white male suffrage was quite unpopular in New England with the fiscally conservative, socially liberal upper-class types, so that makes sense.

I wish people would dress in suits and hats regularly again, so guess.

Why is everyone on this site so weird?

What in God's name do you have against hoodies? They're qute utilitarian, something every American should appreciate. Shaming people for wearing them because someone happened to get shot while in them is downright absurd, and I recommend getting a quick checkup at the nearest mental institution.

Lex Luthor, for one. I'll think of others later.
