Seems like rescuing dogs during lockdown is a thing around here. It happened to us this past week. This guy wandered up dirty and skinny, playing with my daughter in the front yard. After a few days o

Not sure American Samoa would elect GOP senators, so go ahead.  As for breaking up states, that requires the consent of the states.  And there’s always CA and NY as a checkmate.  

The GOP really hasn’t thought this thing through.

I not sure but I believe there are Democratic strong holds in TX and FL so it's also possible that could back fire on the GOP. Also wouldn't this split up and redistribute the Electoral College numbers effectively weakening the GOP's hold on those votes?

Just finished one of the best fantasy works I've ever read (its just the 1st in an upcoming trilogy) 9.5/10. Much tighter character focus than your ASOIAF or First Law and you'll probably finish it in 3 or 4 days cause the pacing is that good and its not terribly long. It eschews your more typical European fantasy settings for one that is sorta semi African. ******* killer revenge story or at least the 1st chapter to one and one **** of a power trip that actually feels well earned. 2nd book comes out in a month or so I think.

What was the other fantasy series you recently recommended?  I desperately need to start reading again.

First Law if your looking for dark fantasy.

I have to echo AR on WOT (my favorite too) and anything Brandon Sanderson but thier not in the same vein as ASOIAF that I know alot of people got into Game of Thrones.

WoT is more like if you took the themes of LoTr and introduced them to modern fantasy themes and the first book is almost the Hobbit like in light tone but it does get darker. One of the few series ive read through twice

Every time I see Boehner I think of this puff piece Politico did for him after he retired:

"Boehner smokes two packs a day and has a habit of pinching off the smoldering end of his cigarette, rolling the butt into a ball and shoving it into his pocket. (On the back nine a day later, Boehner stops at a receptacle and scoops from his pocket some two dozen smoke-stained balls.)"

"Breaking the ice, I mention some news of the day—that Trey Gowdy appears likely to become chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The previous chairman, Jason Chaffetz, had abruptly announced his resignation from Congress; House conservatives had hoped that Jim Jordan, a senior member on the committee, might pursue the chairmanship. Boehner grins. “Gowdy—that’s my guy, even though he doesn’t know how to dress,” he says. Then Boehner leans back in his chair. “**** Jordan. **** Chaffetz. They’re both ********.”

@Mr. Hoopah!

The only downside you might find in First Law is that its so many books

81FnTl6wZPL.jpg

You have the first trilogy which is mostly self contained and then you have a second trilogy (the 2nd book just came out this month, the 3rd supposedly next year) which is its own story which is the 2nd generation mostly the kids from our characters in the 1st trilogy and then thier are four standalone books he wrote in between the trilogies which people will tell you they're optional but when I actually read them I found to be critical because they close out whole *ss character arcs from the first series and set the stage for the second

So including the book to be released thats like 10 books

 

I kind of recommend the audio books on the side. The narrator is fantastic. Alot of times when I read stuff I put the audio narration on my phone and I buy the paper back to follow along Youll find you read books much quicker this way and you can listen while you drive/work.

Also the narrations of Micheal Kramer and Kate Redding are a MUST if you ever get into Wheel of Time.

Rage of Dragons narrator does the African soundy names and in world lingo really good (im pretty sure they got a African dude to narrate) but he doesn't have enough voice variation for my tastes alot of his characters sound the same.

 

I got a good site for free audio books if anybody wants it but if your not a pirate Audible is best
