General Discussion Forum / Re: Cities' Barbecue Rankings

Some journalism (if you can call it that) is nothing more than click bait.  How is Austin, Texas not on the top 10?  Charlotte? Hey, I'm from North Carolina, and I'd be willing to bet there's better barbecue "down East" (Rocky Mount, Elm City, Tarboro, Smithfield, Fayetteville, Oxford, Henderson) than there is in Charlotte. :shrug: :popcorn:

Eastern barbecue sucks.

::) Ummmm, when it comes to BBQ, there's...


 ;)Memphis North Carolina (western) and Texas :nod:

....and then there's just everybody else  :tongue2:

Fixed that for ya

Texas reported zero deaths from COVID-19 on Sunday, just two months after Gov. Greg Abbott drew heat from the White House for rolling back business restrictions and lifting the state's mask mandate.

It marked the first time the Lone Star State reported no coronavirus deaths in about 14 months, according to state health data. Abbott said the case numbers reported on Sunday – 388 – were the lowest in more than 13 months, while the number of hospitalizations was the lowest in 11 months.

Never should have taken this long....Bobby D was the glue to that Bucks championship team.

Wrong again, as usual.

The glue was The Big O.

Defecting teams make mistake, CIAA boss says
Mar 1, 2007

Leon Kerry leaned back on a leather couch at Bobcats Arena in Charlotte and smiled as the first game of his basketball tournament tipped off this week.

“I’m the big dog here in Division II,” the CIAA commissioner said. “We’re the biggest event in Division II NCAA. I like that.”

Kerry has been the boss of the nation’s oldest league of historically black colleges for 17 years. This week’s CIAA tournament is expected to bring 20,000 fans, and the men’s final Saturday will be the only nationally televised Division II conference championship game.

But Kerry also faces several significant issues, the biggest being the steady stream of CIAA schools moving up to Division I. Winston-Salem State left a year ago, and N.C. Central will depart at the end of the school year, leaving the league with 10 schools.

Kerry is convinced those schools are making the wrong decision.

“The thing is, when they go, they play .500 basketball,” he said. “You never hear from them again. They won’t be winning 28 games and playing in the national championship. They will never win a national championship in my lifetime.”

He's still right.  Mighty Central couldn't beat a SWAC school in the play in game.

Title 10 of the United States Code states general officers must retire after 40 years of service or one month after their 64th birthday. The president can make exceptions. 

You people really need to get out more. 

You barracks lawyers are wrong again as usual.

Why would VSU leave the CIAA?

What did they say about Trump?  There were questions about the mental capability and the 2016 election.

Cu had no problem when generals voiced their opposition to Trump.

Had he ever served he would have known they have the right to say this.  He would defend their rights even if he disagreed.

You obviously don't know audio.

And you have babbit Walmart audio...

It's obvious you don't know the best audio systems are custom built.  Not that overpriced plug in play garbage you bought.

It definitely sucks to be you.

An abuse of power.

A program created after 9/11 to protect the flying public is being abused by Congress, according to an association representing federal air marshals, essentially creating, in their words, a VIP "concierge service" for members.

The Air Marshal National Council, which represents some of the nation's roughly 2,000 air marshals, says the problem began after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Following that, some fearful lawmakers began requesting security -- not just on Capitol grounds, but to and from their districts and even to vacation spots.

The Transportation Security Administration, which runs the Federal Air Marshal Service, began reassigning agents from "high risk" commercial flights to accompany members of Congress instead. This angered some sky marshals, as protecting the public is their primary mission. Capitol police, and when necessary the U.S. Secret Service, are tasked with protecting lawmakers. After 9/11, then-President George W. Bush gave the air marshals responsibility to protect the flying public, upping the number of agents from 33 to more than 4,000. Today, the program covers some 30,000 commercial flights a day.
