    I think I had a grey version of that suit. I know I had the forward thrust shoes.

    Edit: nope. It was the navy blue.

    He could have gone after him like the libs did with David Koch...
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    You know his handlers had him down in the war room composing that tweet. He doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to not dancing on the graves of his political adversaries.

    Yeah, that would have been more Drumpf-like.

    It seems the critics of Trump have swung so far left - that they too are at risk at becoming a "trump like parody" themselves in their disdain for him.

    Really? What criticisms of Trump do you deem inappropriate?

    I saw a dead body along I-5 yesterday by Tualatin, and yet I can't find any information on the accident or the victim. The body was wrapped in a blanket, and had on vibram soled boots with a black and yellow tread design, and the feet were at an obvious no life position.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."

    He was pretty quiet and kept to himself. I don't know if he ever even said a word to me when I was out there.

    Sad night at our house tonight. Our son's friend passed away tonight at 6 pm. We've know him since he was in the 1st grade - and he was always a bundle of energy and enthusiasm. He was 29. From alcohol abuse he went septic, and his organs failed him the last three days. Bad blood took him quicker than they could control. We're sad, but our son is taking it hard, as this is his first up close death of a friend and someone his age.

    That's a tough one. One of my clients was murdered today by another one of my clients. That's tough. I had represented the decedent multiple times on juvenile cases and it is really hard to see someone so young checking out.

    Now that's a disaster - even for New Mexico. I supposed your customer refused to pay his bill, and after a few unsuccessful collection attempts, another customer agreed to take a chunk off of his bill.
