    My maternal unit believed vegetables came from a magical land called Birds Eye. The paternal unit put ketchup on spaghetti when he was forced to eat it.

    Fortunately, I had Italian neighbors who introduced me to exotica like avocados and artichokes, and during college I worked in a Hispanic neighborhood and was introduced to rice and beans.

    My idiot brother believes the four food groups are meat, potatoes, coffee, and beer. Which is why he's diabetic and I'm not.

    I was having a conversation with a coworker recently about how my diet now consists of stuff that I was denied growing up because my mom didn't like it. Onions, garlic, peppers, etc. I loved my mom, but she wasn't all that adventurous when it came to seasoning. :lol:

    I thought the four food groups were beef, beans, bacon, and lard? Or was it cornmeal, gunpowder, ham hocks, and guitar strings? So hard to keep all this science stuff straight . . .

    Both my parents' families are from Appalachia. And, I and my siblings often requested .. well, anything out of a box or jar that we saw on a tv commercial only to be told that wasn't real food. We had a garden throughout most of my childhood and took a trip to the butcher once a week for real meat.

    Hell, a trip to a restaurant was a treat - even a fast food restaurant.

    My dad is a very bland eater (although he doesn't mind a curry now and then) while my mum is much more adventurous. Have to give some slack to dad though, a couple of years back I had a conversation with my grandma where she revealed she doesn't use garlic in anything because it's "too spicy" :lol:

    Shooter is also a gun owner. I'm sure there are more which is fine - guns are impartial. That said I certainly don't make defending the 2A "my entire personality". Granted these two may not mention the 2A but they would be just as affected as me if guns were banned or restricted.

    But this comment "We arm our village idiots and loonies. They are allowed to run around with guns because it would make people like @oldfella1962 sad if they were to say no."
    is telling. And considering Forbin "our present guntard champion" is pathetic. Yep, he's a real danger! When New Jersey outlawed high capacity mags he destroyed his. Not many gun owners would follow the letter of the law to that extent, but he did.

    That said if anybody here thinks I'm an idiot or a loon and shouldn't own a weapon I would suggest contacting law enforcement and make a sworn statement to that affect, or shut the fuck up if you don't have the balls to do that.

    I rarely ate fast food growing up, and going to an actual restaurant? :huh: I can probably count on one hand the times that ever happened. And yes, rice & beans are pretty damn awesome! :yes:

    Fast food was only for rare occasions - those being, everyone is in too big of a hurry to cook; all day spent shopping for new clothes and school supplies; helping another family move; stuff like that. Real restaurants were for celebrations - a birthday, an anniversary, ...

    When I was a kid, fast food was a very rare thing and as often as not meant submarine sandwiches from Mike's Subs or chicken from KFC. The fanciest sit-down restaurant we went to was Pizza Hut.

    I'm not a liberal, though from your far right perspective I could see how you could make that mistake.

    Retired military with a Secret clearance, no felony convictions, no domestic abuse allegations let alone convictions, and no history of inpatient mental health issues? I think I've got legal gun ownership covered pretty well.

    My mom, who loves to cook and experiment with new recipes, grew up in the upper Midwest. She says she was an adult before she realized there were spices other than salt and pepper.

    Here we have a problem directly associated with security. If I barge through security at any state building without going through the metal detector and a wanding so I can get permission to enter the building I will end up in jail. There will probably be a fine, but security does not wait for me to start shooting before they put the cuffs on.

    Does the law not apply to republican congresstraitors? Why is it even an option to push by federal security and enter congress? Bitch should be sucking pavement. It is allowances like this that give these lawbreaking traitors the idea that there are no consequences for their actions. They should arrest any congressperson who pushes by security. After what security allowed to happen in congress they should arrest any security officer who allows it to happen as an insurrectionist who does it as an accomplice to the crime.

    There is no necessity for these people to be in congress. If you want to carry a gun around with you, then you do not need to be in the capitol building. If you want to allow them to carry up to the capitol give them a secure locker where they can put their gun before they run into the rest of the congresspeople. Do not let the trumpista traitors in the capitol to kill anyone. They have shown themselv4es to be traitors to the nation.

    Apparently the guy is the former CEO of a company founded by Erik Prince. Still better than a complete lunatic, and I realize a lefty dream candidate isn't gonna win CO-03, but I'd like to know more before getting too excited ...
