Bushie, have you ever considered gastric bypass surgery? I heard it can work wonders, and its permanent unlike lipo.

Asking this again because I'm genuinely curious and you ignored it. And I'm not just saying this to make fun of you, it could actually help you change your life. Would the Indian healthcare cover the procedure? Here's an example of a before and after pic.

He got >10% in Macon County!

Al Gore's best county keeps up its Democratic anti-Republican streak. The only county in the state over 10%. The Atlas map doesn't easily show which county is next. The stat page shows that Covington is worst.

You're not in a position to complain. It's your Boehner who decided that. Blame your party.
I am. I voted for Boehner and my party, and I want results. Don't be silly.

Granted, the Southern accent also has its eccentricities, but the Great Lakes vowel shift strikes me as intensely strange. People go around talking like that all the time? Tongue

Perhaps the most distinctive answer: Rummage sale. I was surprised to see the pattern for this, it's most common in eastern Wisconsin, but is also relatively common in the Dakotas (hence where I got it from)...but not common in Minnesota. I don't think I've ever heard my mom who has them all the time call them anything else, but she's from Minnesota originally.

Something I've noticed where North Dakota is different from everywhere else: Graham crackers are not pronounced as "gram crackers", it's a two syllable word with the h barely there or totally silent but still two syllables (like "gruh-am"). Most people in Minnesota think this is quite weird and I've found even Fargoans aren't familiar with it, meaning it's most likely a western Dakota thing, or possibly even exclusive to the Bismarck metro.

Real median household income is still considerably lower than it was prior to the Recession. Things are slowly improving, but the average household (well, the median household, but you get the expression) is still poorer that it was before the crisis:

The Dems could try to argue that the recession would've been much worse without the stimulus etc (but that's old news so I doubt it would get them many votes) but trying to spin the current situation as a time of prosperity for most people would not go over well.

You're right about the energy boom, but can Obama really be credited with that? To be fair, no President can (or at least, no President should) be directly credited with economic developments of this nature but many people perceive Obama as an anti-oil/gas guy and a Dem advertising campaign stressing the energy boom probably wouldn't work too well since the don't really have any specific policies to attribute the boom to and it'd be pretty hard for them to beat the GOP at their own game in regard to energy.

The amended bill is friendly, top to bottom. I'll sign this if it passes.

Just another empty threat. If they did, Obama would just give the SOTU from the White House.

If I were Obama, I would make no hesitation to do it on the steps of the capitol to an open crowd and have the Democrats walk out of the chamber. The whole extravaganza would go down in history.

At approximately 11:05 PM today, Brodie Hellenes and Dixie Reborn were stopped by a Forum Moderation Officer due to suspected involvement with sock accounting. Hellenes attempted to attack the officer. Fearing for his life, the officer acted in self defense by firing two fifty point infractions at the suspects. Mr. Hellenes was pronounced dead at the scene while Mr. Reborn is in critical condition at Jew Leip Methodist Memorial Hospital - but is not expected to recover. The officer involved has been put on paid leave pending internal investigation.

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.  Following the public outcry over this incident, the David Leip Moderation Department has elected to release the name of the officer involved in these events.

The officer's name is Bacon King, and he has been with the Moderation Department for four years.  To date, he has but one disciplinary action listed on his service record, involving a prior case of false accusations of socking.

However, our thorough report of the present incident indicates that Officer King acted appropriately, and correctly identified Mr. Hellenes as a sock account of Mr. Reborn.  From this, one can only conclude that when Officer King opened fire on the individual he identified as Mr. Hellenes, he was in fact merely mortally injuring Mr. Reborn's typing hand.  Emergency surgery conducted by Dr. Modadmin Nym90 is expected to leave Mr. Reborn in such a state that he will never again be able to grace this forum.

Officer King is suffering symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, and will be counseled by Moderation therapist Dr. Torie, as he attempts to continue with his life following this traumatic event.  He is set to be interviewed by George Stephanopolous to provide his side of the story within the next 48 hours.

This has been a trying time for all, and I understand that many of you are appalled by Moderation policy that force against socks is always justified.  However, don't you think there's a reason for that?

(too soon?)
