Sorry, CW13. That's just one of my biggest current pet peeves. Mr. Trump absolutely won the presidency fair and square, but not in a way that justifies some of the rhetoric I hear from the right. Phrases like "Americans have spoken," "the voice of the people has been heard," and (worst of all) "a majority of voters" are inaccurate. My town recently held a sparsely attended anti-Trump rally. A counter-protesting Trump supporter said exactly this:
I just think its really, really sad that they dont see that the majority of America has come down and said, We are no longer accepting these policies. This isnt working for America. "
No. A majority of Americans who chose to vote agreed with the protesters that man was countering. Americans were given the choice of continuing on a certain course and the majority of voters chose that course (even in spite of a flawed candidate) over the person and policies of Donald Trump.
What's "really, really sad" to me is that people like the man quoted above cannot see the difference.
Plus, "breaking balls" seems to be your thing. I thought you'd be pleased.
Like most of the states, maybe. Not "most of the country." I'm not a numbers guy, but if "most of the country" cast votes similar to Pennsylvanians, President Trump would probably have gotten more than 46% of the vote.
"Living rent-free in your head." The analogy that keeps on giving!
I promise to visit Rizzo's on our next trip.
Evict him. Free yourself. Just think what you could do with that space.
Unfortunately, we did not make it. It was near Essex, I believe. We did go to Shopsin's again at the Essex Street Market and, as always, Joe's on Carmine. Maybe next time. When I retire, I will spend a year (at least) in New York City. Tell me the name of the place one more time.
As for the other, you may want to consult someone. In Arizona, occupying an otherwise neglected property publically for more than two years gives someone squatter's rights. You may never get him out.
First, please excuse my unnecessary question mark at the end of my previous comment. English teachers should not make punctuation mistakes.
As for the explanation, my comment was simply an attempt to point out that, based on your own somewhat continuous criticism of Tom, he seems to live in your head, making your "clever" critique deliciously ironic.
So, I'll ask it directly this time. Is Tom living "rent-free in your head" or are you charging? Is it a lease? Rent-to-own, maybe?
That makes me wonder, CW13, how much you charge Tom?
We fly out Monday. If the pizza is good, maybe I'll consider a no-dis truce going forward. Pals, though? For sure. I only dis my pals. I thought that was your approach as well, as you welcomed me with "idiot" on one of my first posts. Two peas in a pod, us.
