He's thinly slicing garlic. Its a scene from Goodfellas where they show the gang in jail, and they have it set up as nice suite with a bunch of amenities, and they spend a lot of time cooking for entertainment.

They get around that by not giving very much funding to these programs, oddly enough. Then demanding more requirements and more sanctions because clearly, too many people are still cheating the system. I chopped most of your quote for space, BenPrime, but yes!

I thought Warren did have Indian ancestry, just not much. No? I think, that she may or may not have but when asked about it somewhere only had her family stories. I doubt she is part Cherokee. That is a common family origins myth that you hear in a lot of families. But I do believe that she was tol...

I enjoy the outdoors, and have done sea kayaking and snorkeling a few times - so a few years ago I thought I'd try scuba diving. Unfortunately, I am also an anxious person. I made it to the outdoor diving portion, which was done in a quarry. During the certification dive, I was so anxious that I kep...

Re: Political Depression - How to Handle

I occasionally go online and read very old newspapers, say from the 1920s or 1890s. Its startling how the times have changed, but the fear has not - war, hunger, economic distress. There's that saying (I think by Martin Luther King) that "the arc of history is long, but bends towards justice." Its e...

Yet, since Trump's supporters are not very bright, they will believe the rhetoric "Trump put tariffs on steel! Trump stood up to the EU!" and not care about the reality. Its how Trump operated his business. He was always announcing new buildings or new deals. The fact that only a tiny fraction ever ...
