  1. Try going off the diet for a weekend then restarting it. I found that when I plateaued that process kick started the weight loss again.
  2. How about installing an underground sprinkler system ... with motion sensor switch turned on in the night, aimed at waist height to filter out small animals ...
  3. I don't understand this desire to have AC set to 16. If it is less than 23 I start to shut down and can't sleep from shivering ...
  4. Now you know why she buys so much ... ;-)
  5. I read that as dried mice ... I may be getting old ...
  6. It was illegal because a Democrat made the deal. That is all you really need to know. It explains everything.
  7. Jeremiah 13:23 ... a leopard can't change its spots ... The US political process has become, IMO, irreversibly divided. Statistically 1 in 2 people is Democrat, and 1 in 2 is Republican. Neither side fundamentally trusts the other. They each believe that they have cornered the truth. I am not sure what those of us outside their system should do ... sit back with a bag of popcorn, or build bomb shelters. You say you personally don't like the Trump but respect the office. Sorry I can't do that. The office is meaningless if the occupant is not worthy of respect. Too many bullies have hid behind a title or office to justify respect for an office or title. Respect is for humans.
  8. Well that is a deficiency in the process then. I guess you could argue that they are politicians and it goes with the territory. Don't like the heat then get out of the furnace.
  9. I guess how the dots connect is pretty perspective dependent. As a member of the Armed Forces Committee the contact may very well be legitimate and acceptable, I don't have any issue with that. In my opinion, the moment any active member of a committee like that starts to actively campaign on behalf of a presidential campaign, I would think in the interests of transparency and preventing potential conflict of interest that stepping down form the committee is warranted, but I may just be idealistic about that. Seriously, it pisses me off that both left and right do the same stupid things over an over again. They get into power and then do the same things that they accused their opponents of doing. The politics in the US is getting more and more divisive. Both sides are to blame.
  10. Irenicus, I don't know why you bother ... you are trying to reach those that have been drinking the Koolaid for so long they think neon purple is a natural piss color ...
  11. Just to make sure we are on the same page: - OP is about a foreigner that has outstanding charges of serious criminal activity (regardless of whether justified or not) - He want to leave the country for medical help but PH will not let him because they think he is a flight risk. - I posted that pretty much no country will let someone with serious outstanding charges to leave a country - you responded by saying that you have many times crossed the US Mexico border with out being checked , even for a passport - I respond by saying that I don't see the relevance that example is, and then reaffirm my original statement - you respond that I may not understand what I wrote Okay ... My point is that whether or not you or anyone can freely cross a border with or without a passport, it is irrelevant to which countries would allow someone with serious criminal charges outstanding to leave the country. I am pretty damned sure that if I were charged with a serious crime in the US that I would be put in jail, and if not jailed at a minimum my passport would be seized. It is the same for all countries. If you are charged with a crime and they have you in their grasp, they are not realistically going to let go until they resolve the case. Now maybe I am still missing something, but the OP seemed pretty clear to me. Basically man is accused of some crime and the government says he cannot leave until it is resolved. Whether they let him leave on medical grounds is totally within their discretion. Their country their rules.
  12. Maybe I am missing something but I don't see the relevance of this. Were you in Mexico and Charged with a criminal offense, and they let you leave the country?
  13. The point is that regardless of inequity between legal systems, no country will allow someone to leave their country if they think there is a risk of that person evading charges. Either you have to pay a heavy bond, or you surrender your passport or you stay in custody. When you are in a foreign country you have to play by their rules.
  14. That is irrelevant. If they release him typically you have to surrender your passport so you are not a flight risk.
