  1. What are you cooking today?

    So, in a disappointing trip to the HNO, I was informed that I have tonsillitis secondary to my surgery a few weeks back. So, following the familial adage that sick people eat soup, I cooked.   Grandma's chicken soup recipe   Dice one large onion and six or seven cloves of garlic. In a large soup pot, melt butter and brown the onions and garlic. Dice 600g or so of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. If you cannot buy these readily, you can skin and debone leg quarters. Once the onions have gone clear, add in the chicken and brown it. Add in 1.5 L chicken stock and 2 tbsp. tomato paste. Bring to a boil. Salt to taste. Set to simmer. Boil Risoni (Acini de Pepe or Orzo work fine) in salted water. When the past is al dente, add it to the soup mixture. Bring soup back to a boil. Add in bouillon, if needed.    Serve steaming hot with grated hard cheese. If I've said it once, I've said it 100 times: pecorino romano is my hard cheese of choice. 
  2. ADAC battery replacement

      So, she was out €50 and complained that you did a €100 job for her for free? Nice friend. Sorry she was so awful about it.
  3.   You should open a thread for that and then read news coming out of the US. Tons of people are talking about it, but not on the "How do we get rid of this orange idiot" thread.
  4. ADAC battery replacement

    @franklan In the future, you can get these codes from any dealership for that kind of car. We had all of the paperwork for our old Renault when I changed that battery, but that item was not included. I called the dealership and they told me over the phone.
  5.   I thought s/he was implying that people should be morally required to negotiate with those that view them as non-human or as deserving of fewer rights. I thought it was just a really moronic thing to say.    
  6. @Eupathic Impulse The mobilization focuses on getting the Fanta Menace out of the White House, your opinion of American civic culture aside. 
  7.   This line of discussion is unproductive. Americans cannot move forward on the concerns of the people who are morally and ethically the worst of us. We move forward by mobilizing the best of us.
  8.   All of this assumes that applying for asylum is illegal and, therefore, punishable. It is not. This is a post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy. Asylum seeking border crossings did not cause the Trump regime's cruel policy; the cruelty existed and the existence of asylum seeking border crossers gave it a stage.
  9. Contributions paid by employer

    Pension and health insurance are not taxes.
  10. What made you laugh today?

      Good argument against leather seats. 
  11. What are you cooking today?

    @lisa13 Lots of non-Italians, my wife included, prefer mushy pasta. My Sicilian nana thought it was a sin.
  12. Gender neutral toilets.

      Say it isn't so. Kommentarlos isn't generalizing about a specific group, is s/he?
  13.   Illinois just enacted a law prohibiting for profit detention centers. Other states are on the way. Whatever venal motivations the Trump Republican regime has, there are still many ways to counter it. 
  14.   Except this is not the position they just argued in court. The Trump DOJ literally just argued that toothbrushes, toothpaste,  soap, and bedding are not included in any definition of safe and sanitary.  The judge, per news reports, was markedly incredulous. 
  15.   If any normal American household failed to provide soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste,  and proper bedding, the children would be taken and the parents arrested.
