Last time I had it, the chicken was crisp-ish but the sauce was primarily red chili and sugar. This time, the sauce is better--not as good as it used to be--but the chicken is floppy. And there's less of it.
$5 says it's because of the inflation the US government insists is not actually happening. *sigh*

Monty brings the DOOM! and among other things he mentions that Greece's unemployment rate is almost 29%.

Crazy-ass bitch takes down 9/11 memorial flags stating that that it's some kind of "protest" against American imperialism. She made this assertion based on claimed ethnicity as an American Indian of the Abenaki tribe, and further said that the 9/11 memorial was desecrating an Abenaki burial ground.
The Abenaki tribe itself says there isn't an Abenaki burial ground there, and further distances itself from this dumbass.
What actually happened was, a couple of hyperliberal idiots saw nearly 3,000 American flags and were, like, so offended by the crass display of imperialist patriotism and the symbol of slavery and oppression that they decided to pull them all up and throw them away. The thing about the indian burial ground was a rationalization that would have been something else if the actors had been different people, but just as flimsy.

So, it turns out that Matthew Shepard was killed by his drug addicted gay lover, and not a couple of homophobic rednecks:
...Shepard was a meth dealer himself and he was friends and sex partners with the man who led in his killing. Indeed, his killer may have killed him because Shepard allegedly came into possession of a large amount of methamphetamine and refused to give it up.Well, shucks, it's a drug crime after all, isn't it? I mean, you can't reasonably claim that Shepard was a victim of homophobia when the guy who drove the entire murder was having sex with him.
The book also shows that Shepard’s killer was on a five-day meth binge at the time of the killing.
You can claim it, but not reasonably.

Let me say it again: the GOP doesn't want to get rid of Obamacare. The GOP is perfectly happy with it because the GOP leadership is part of the aristocracy, and after all they're all going to be exempt from it; the next few elections look like GOP wins, so why on earth would they want to vote to reduce their power? What aristocrat ever wants to see his power diminished?
Right on schedule, Obamacare is leading to rationing, exactly as we predicted it would. Because socialized medicine always leads to a lower standard of care and rationing.
AND here comes the first volleys of government snooping. Obamacare is going to require you to tell your doctor all kinds of things you ordinarily would keep quiet unless they were medically relevant.
All of which was predicted by me and people like me, who were capable of looking at how socialized medicine works every time its tried.

The expansion of the American police state continues. 70 federal agencies have armed police officers, and they all can arrest you--or shoot you dead if you resist.
Somehow I doubt that this is what the Founding Fathers had in mind.

Abortion is less popular than it once was. I wonder why that is?

Cutting apart one of these pieces of chicken, I can see that they went extra-heavy on the breading. That explains it. Also, it proves that inflation is the culprit; chicken's not as cheap as it used to be.
