  1. Any man that becomes involved with one of the Kardashian women, usually leaves as a confused train wreck...
  2. . The good times are gone... My brother and I and some friends were in and Diego on business about 10 years ago, and we headed over the border to Ti Juana.. We hit a few bars, and didn't see a single lone American,,, You could just feel a really nasty vibe, and then we heard a pretty heavy gun battle going on... When the shooting stopped we got in the Van and bolted... Juarez is the same way these days... No longer a playground drink up and get a gal... Both towns have become killing fields for the drug cartels, and it's just not safe any more... I spent 6 months TDY in Honduras back in 84... Now those were some great fucking times off base..
  3. I'd imagine you can make them as expensive or cheap as you want depending on ingredients and toppings.... The 7-11 here sells a large cheese Pizza for $5.... The most expensive is $12,000 http://hauteliving.com/2010/03/top-five-most-expensive-pizzas-in-the-world/29487/
  4. I've never had them, but I've eaten Tripe many times... I'm guessing it's kind of similar.... Mom would clean the hell out of it---soak it---clean it again---soak it again---then simmer it for hours in Marinara sauce... On it's own it had no taste, but in the sauce it would absorb that flavour.. It was more of a texture thing I guess.. I liked it...
  5. Salaries are determined by job skills and what they are worth to an employer Shinny... They are not based on lifestyle choices... Entry level unskilled jobs are not supposed to be living wage jobs.. They are an introduction into the workforce.. As I mentioned, when I was 16 I had a minimum wager summer job... I did not expect to buy a home, car and start a family on it, nor did I believe I was entitled to.. A 16 year old unskilled worker isn't worth $30K a year with benefits in the job market
  6. Exactly... They sell it as a matter of fairness, but what do you do with the worker currently making $15 an hour that's been there longer than the guy who was making $10 and just got bumped up to $15... Now the guy with less experience and time with the company makes the same... Does the employee that was there longer now get that $20 an hour because that is also the fair thing to do?.... And as you said, who determined businesses, especially small businesses can cover these cost increases?
  7. Perhaps not... Food Stamp Man out in California was able to use his SNAP Card to buy Maine Lobster & Sushi.... Bernie would probably extend that to King Crab and Shrimp cocktail as well
  8. We used to get this other swill out of Mexico called Mescal... It was like Tequila on Steroids.... You'd be hallucinating long before reaching that worm at the bottom of the bottle...
  9. Another drink concoction I saw in some of the Bars in Korea was something kept on display behind the counters... It was a large jar with a whole Snake in it marinating in some sort of formaldehyde solution.... I did shots on a few occasions, and it was like rubbing alcohol.... They always tried to pimp these potions as fertility nectars.... Sounds great if you wanted to die with a Hard-On
  10. I've never had Chitterlings.... They say you have to spend a lot of time rinsing the shit out of them, then soak and boil them for hours, after which they taste like nothing but whatever you season them with... Sounds like I could boil rubber bands and douse in Hot Sauce to achieve the same dining experience...
  11. Agreed... The Beer was piss.... OB and Crown... We used to drink the Soju served in big bowls with fruit punch mixed in called Jungle Juice.... Quite a few times Jinru left me thinking I'd seen Jesus.... There was another God awful swill we used to drink called Peach Oscar... It made Andre Cold Duck seem like the finest French Champagne...
  12. Understandable how a Pizza can cost $37 in California.... It is probably topped with a copy of Che Guevara's memoires and includes an Aroma Therapy session on the side...
  13. Why does anyone other than you have to pay your way through life?... You hold this absurd notion, that if they had less, somehow that would morph into you having more... A fool's errand
  14. Unions have been shrinking for years, and that has nothing to do with the GOP or any other Politicians Shinny.... Initially the Unions did so much good... I'd mentioned before my Grandfather was a Union organizer in NYC for the Textile Industry in the 30s.. He was also treasurer of his Union for many years... Before he retired, he turned his back on the Union because of the corruption, Mob ties, and intimidation of their own members who voiced an opposing view.... These days, they are little more than extortionists that have priced themselves out of work----see Twinkie Bakers
