I don't go to Starbucks any more. Too much trouble to just get coffee.

Passing through a bunch of airports?
"the_andrew_smith@yahoo.com" <agavinsmith@gmail.com>: Jun 28 12:57PM -0700

I never get it at airports. Huge convention at convention center with Starbucks and my hotel only had a Starbucks.
 
Any other time it's if whomever I'm with is having it.
 
I'm unimpressed with their coffee, although their new(ish) brew, pike place (?) seems to have almost knocked the old burned stuff out of the lineup.

I went to Philmont, too. Trip wasn't nearly as exciting. 2.5 hour drive and don't remember the route. Plus we went to the basecamp multiple times for JLT.

So what you're saying is that repubs in Alabama don't pay *any* federal tax?
 
Slackers.
 
Cheers.

Not at all. The repubs on my former street(which was virtually 100% republican) paid enormous taxes. The gop areas/populations of most deep south states tend to pay much more in taxes than they take in.
We just wish the Hillary and Obama voters would stop being such leeches on the govt.
dotslashderek@gmail.com: Jun 28 11:03AM -0700

Oh. So you're contradicting yourself. Hey - didn't you used to be one of those hillary / Obama voters? Back when you weren't scamming six figures a year keeping dope addicts in "maintenance mode"?
 
Not very nice to call yourself names like that...
 
Cheers.

I'm at 2.5% of assessed value - and assessments are quite high

Of course, no public water or sewer. No natural gas. Two volunteer
fire departments within 5 miles.

Its interesting but to me all the guns start to look alike pretty quickly.

There were 2 adults and 10 Scouts in our group. We were not the
Council contingent - we just decided we wanted to go as a small group
and make the trip special. All were Eagles except the other adult -
who owned the Winnebago we rode in. Our oldest son was elected Crew
Chief. All except 2 were from the same troop -- I asked the others
because I was the Council OA Lodge Advisor and knew them.
 
I wonder what that trip would cost now. After paying for Philmont and
gas we each took $400.
 
I wish the other 2 grandsons had remained in Scouting but they played
too many sports.

I would not ridicule them if they made it a fortnight.

It says that more women finish than men but that men are more likely to win.

It also said that women were less likely to enter unless they were sure they could complete the race while men are like "sure why not I can do it!". So it may be more a case of selection bias.

Dewd, that would require him thinking through the issues. How's he gonna work that in between golf rounds?

michael anderson <mianderson79@gmail.com>: Jun 28 10:13AM -0700

the guy in front of me was your classic overeducated millennial.
 
Looked late 20s.
 
Had his Birmingham Southern t-shirt on but he had some grad books in his hand so Im guessing he is in grad school somewhere.
 
Had the scruffy facial hair.
 
Had sandals and ratty shorts on so he clearly wasn't about to head to any real job.
 
Ordered a frozen flavored coffee drink that was almost 6 dollars.
 
My idea would be to cut him off as he was paying and say to the barista(who is probably on IBR himself) "actually, cancel that order and I'll take the payment. He's on income based loan repayment for a bunch of federal student loans he should have never qualified for in a sane world. Since his income is nothing or very little, he actually doesn't pay anything towards the massive loans he has taken out. And me and other taxpayers are footing the bill and the interest. So I'll take this 6 dollars as part of my payment. thank you"....
 
The look on his face would be one of total astonishment.
 
In a sane world that's what would happen.

It must be sad to live a life where everything you see makes you resentful.
