Chick-fil-a Prime.

Oh hey, good morning. America is GREAT again. I just found out myself.

This looks like his new theme. Everything solved


X-post from GD - the Donald J. Trump State Park is a failure & tax dodge

As with most Bloomberg reports very well researched and all aspects covered.


A Failed Trump Golf Course Turned Into a Dilapidated New York State Park

Trump boasted undeveloped land worth five times assessed value
New York stopped maintaining marshy, overgrown forest in 2010



When Donald Trump bought 436 acres in upstate New York two decades ago, he envisioned adding two new championship golf courses to his collection.

But local leaders nixed the golf-course plans and his subsequent efforts to sell it to a homebuilding company faltered. So he gave it away.

"This is my way of trying to give back," he said at the time.

Like most deals involving Trump, there was more to it than goodwill. He was unloading what experts say was useless land, but not before working local officials to see if they could reappraise it at more than five times the assessed value, according to documents seen by Bloomberg and interviews with people involved -- and using a grossly inflated figure on later presidential campaign documents to show, falsely, the depth of his philanthropy.

Despite the purchase price of $2.75 million, and a county assessment of $5.5 million at the time of the donation, Trump’s 2016 campaign said in a list of charitable donations published by The Washington Post that the land was worth $26.1 million.

Donald J. Trump State Park(s) N.Y. has a story exactly like you'd expect

As with most Bloomberg reports very well researched and all aspects covered.

Weird/odd food things you do

I’ve very recently found that pepper on mayonnaise is really really tasty but then I put pepper on everything.

Salt on lettuce completely changes it’s taste. That’s the only time I’d add salt to anything.

Oh and a Hershey bar section on a saltine cracker is delicious!

It's Lebron's fault

Virginia War Memorial's hillside of 12,000 American flags 'is amazing' PICS&Video

?quality=85&strip=all&w=560

RICHMOND, Va. -- A powerful new display at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond honors the nearly 12,000 Virginians who made the ultimate sacrifice since World War II.

Video at link

The inaugural “Hill of Heroes" display, which was installed Saturday morning, features 12,000 American flags on the hillside next to the Shrine of Memory.

Kate Belleman, Virginia War Memorial’s Sales and Events Manager, said between 60 to 80 volunteers, including Boy Scouts, installed the flags to represent the Virginians killed in World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf conflicts.

Need some BBQ/grilling advise

Since we’re buying a house my in-laws are going to buy us a grill. Not much of a griller so I have to ask, is this the thing now?


5 actual direct quotes from Trump's Fox&Friends call in this morning

Okay I don’t know the context of this first one but it looks like he lost track of his train of thought in 2 seconds.

"If I was, and of course you have to look at it because if you don't look at it you're not going to know if it's bad ... of course you give it to the FBI or report it to the attorney general or somebody like that. But of course you’d do that, you couldn't have that happen with our country,"

The rest are just screaming from a street corner crazy.

"If I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated, I'd report it to the attorney general, the FBI, I'd report it to law enforcement absolutely."

"Her party got caught spying. If you look at what happened, Hillary Clinton with the money that ultimately went to Russia for the fake dossier, the totally fake pile of stuff....and the amount of money that was paid and was paid by Hillary Clinton and the DNC and it went to Russia, that's the criminal,"

“Iran did do it and you know they did it because you saw the boat,”

Trump said the mine had “Iran written all over it.” But he said that Iran had been damaged since he took office, but was still a threat.

"They're a nation of terror and they've changed a lot since I've been president, I can tell you."
