I won’t even put my true and honest opinions on here for the simple fact I know I’ll piss a certain group of people off. But, I think these series of events really brings out the true colors in certain groups and all the more of a reason to protest more or to just simply avoid those people. It also highlights how this country was never truly integrated even though teachers and history books say otherwise. 

If ever there was a time and thread for your voice, this would be it. Since when do you care if you piss anyone off?

Are any of you going to donate to any of those charities?

I made a challenge gift with my family to our local community bail fund, and donating separately to Charles Booker, the black man running against Mitch because Mitch has got to go. Every time Westboro Baptist Church makes headlines, I make a donation to GLAAD in memory of Fred Phelps and make sure they send a card, and every time a republican male says something moronic about women's bodies, I make a donation to Planned Parenthood. 

And since I actually work for a charity, I donate there, too. Hurts the pocketbook a little, but it's worth it. I might have to ditch one of my SL premium accounts, but I'm sure they'd understand.

#2. I hope you like gravy on your chips.

Hmm, chips means different things to different people.  Are we talking about what we Americans call French Fries or Potato Chips?

French Fries -- yummy with gravy:

Potato Chips - not so great with gravy:

I know this thread is now beyond redemption, but here's some 'fun' statistics for you. If any of you want to move to the first world, I'll fake-marry you for residency.

I don't know if any of the countries on the good third of that list are that eager for a wave of American refugees.

That means I'd have to learn English. 😬

Anyway... I got an email from the President last night after his town hall and this little bit at the end made me feel some much-needed hope. I can't find a gif of Gianna on her uncle's shoulders spinning around and smiling, but if you can find the video, it's beautiful.

French fries aren't close to chips.  Fried fresh air

Chips are more like this

and best served in a butty

sorry for the detail but figured you all need some sustenance before continuing.

This is my go-to of choice (worrying Scylla and several others, no doubt), and they do gravy on fries/chips and add squeaky cheese. If Cheeto has another 4 years, Canada better build a wall to protect their southern border ASAP. (I wonder who will pay for it?)

Once - the potato chips turned into a soggy mess.  I don't like food to be soggy when it is suppose to be crispy.

Maybe if they had made the gravy a bit thicker and the chips a bit crispier to start with - and not totally drowned the chips in the gravy.

Never thought I'd miss the "good old days" of W, but darned if it isn't so...

I watched Obama the other night, and was sighing all the way through it, thinking "Remember when we had a President who could think, and communicate?"

Well, gravy is sometimes served on top of french fries (and is good that way), so I guess I didn't think it that odd that someone tried to put gravy on top of chips - until they turned into a soggy mess.  Dipping in gravy makes much more sense.

French fries deserve a wide array of accoutrements.  I’m partial to garlic aioli & chili sauce (the ketchupie one).  

I'm going to make a controversial confession here. I don't love French fries. What I do love is the huge variety of toppings and sauces. The fries are simply a delivery method for those delicious things.

Same for lettuce in a salad.
