Oh - if there was any doubt left, I was definitely trying to call you out personally.
Figured you'd take it that way, which is silly. But that's fine with me. :)
That was what could be considered a Scandinavian welcome and I'll give you an American one - Hey, awesome that you are here again, look around, catch up on things, and have fun!

I think I recognize your style. Are you a philosophy aficionado, by chance? If so, you will observe that we have fallen into querulous disarray, but there is always hope!  Veni, vidi, vici. 
He seems to be in Dublin now, so there is hope. Can't fool inner city Dubliners.

Even more socialist/communist leaning news sources have started to admit that there are discrepancies between the official line and what actually happened on January 6.
Dream on.

(JK, Trumpians that I know are very nice, with nice children.)
Until you get under their skin.
Do the children call you 'Sir' or is is just kids of the military?
An elementary school teacher called me 'sir' once. I asked her why she had done that, as it was a bit offputting and weird given I was in the fifth grade. "Out of respect. That's how you speak respectfully to one another" was her answer.

Had I known what a 'facepalm' meme was, I'd have shown it to her on the spot.
She was being ironic.

You can fool all the Wilmotters some of the time and some of the Wilmotters all the time, but you cannot fool all the Wilmotters all the time.
Oh, I still do believe in God, old man.

Well, I'm on a very slow boomerang trajectory. What should have taken 2 years has grown exponentially to 18. I'll give my employer the chance with helping me to get back onto the grid in the U.S. at some point. After that, it's off to a state which isn't wallowing in debt (and thereby increasing property taxes etc. to service said debt).

You'd hope so. She was being totally serious though. Everyone was called 'sir' or 'madame' for the rest of the week.

Donald Trump Spent Almost a Year Playing Golf During Presidency

https://milwaukeecourieronline.com/inde ... residency/

 Many in conservative media made a point of mentioning time spent playing golf by President Barack Obama. But Trump has now far surpassed Obama and any other president in time spent on golf courses.

ppauper used to tell us these stories. The consortium were great.

Ah yes, the property boom, it never went away. How can people survive?
The best time to buy a house was 1993 or 2012.

Well, it's a question of what you get and where. If I can buy 200 acres of land in Idaho / Montana / etc. for $250,000, why not? A townhouse / terrace in or outside of Dublin would set me back €350,000-2,500,000. And that's with next to no yard.

yes, I know all about it. I saw it evolving each year from say 1992 (deep depression) up to the present day.

A collective sigh of relief has been drawn. Good wine has been consumed in celebration. This thread can be closed. Go, and never darken our towels again!

A modest proposal.
Let's just PURGE this thread just like Twitter did.

Republican U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz plan to attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration

https://www.texastribune.org/2021/01/15 ... joe-biden/

he's probably a very nice man behind it all... 

reminds one of the funeral scene in the Godfather, the other 'capos' were invited.

I have nothing new to add about all the politicians and other celebrities discussed extensively here and elsewhere.
However, what about the people none of us has heard from publicly?  The "silent majority" ?
A WSJ article includes an interesting sentence:
"The FBI has received more than 200,000 digital tips from the public about the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, as friends, relatives and coworkers come forward with information about those involved, Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said Monday."
https://www.wsj.com/livecoverage/trump- ... kgFAQXZNaT

If family/friends/neighbors/coworkers/employees are so QUICK to turn in rioters, perhaps these rioters were wearing out their welcome long before Jan.6.  That implies a low level of support for extremism.  That encourages cautious optimism on my part.

And with that observation I shall return to lurking.

"Iced Earth, we have a very loyal fanbase. It's a challenging position to be in because we're always kind of, and for many, many years, have been bubbling below the surface of being able to break big."

Jon Schaffer

Where is he now?

This was pretty unequivocal; in short, an insurrection.

The trick is to start a crowdfunding and you'll get enough gobshites to part with their money.
