The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.

Do it. We've many troops with combat experience returning from the Middle East. You go right ahead and do it.

I recommend firing on Fort Lee, first. I think that's the most liberal socialistic army base in Virginia.
 
2012-05-11 04:45:47 PM  
Aw. No recipe. I'm disappointed.

If it were really conservative they would have spelled it potatoe. Potato is the way socialists spell that word.

Conservative Potato & Egg Delight -- the secret ingredient is bootstraps.

But seriously, that recipe is as bland and uninspired as Romney.

And yeah the typos were in the original recipe:

Conservative Potato & Egg Delight

● 4 Large Potatoes
● 4 Eggs
● 4 Tablespoons Freshly
● Green Onions or Parsley
(for sprinkling)
● Salt & Pepper to taste


Wash & dry Potatoes, Pierce each one and coat with olive oil, Bake in oven till done. Slice top of each potato off, scoop out enough potato pulp to allow room for 1 egg. Put 1 tbsp. of freshly grated cheese in hollow area of each potato, also salt and pepper. Crack one of your eggs and pour into potato. Do the same for other potatoes. Broil
for about 1-2 minutes, till egg is cooked, sprinkle with freshly chopped green onion or
parsley and serve hot !! Yummy !!
 
2012-05-11 05:13:32 PM  
Add some bacon and that potato and egg thing might actually be pretty good.
 
2012-05-11 05:15:31 PM  
"Living wage" is the worst term ever. "Living" and "supporting a family of 4" are two different things.

Throw in a side salad and you've got an inexpensive well rounded meal. Those living wage folks should subscribe to this newsletter.

It was broken when I tried earlier. Looks like they do have cheese in the recipe, though, it's just not listed in the ingredients. But yeah, maybe some crumbled bacon on top, and you'd have yourself something pretty good. Not sure what, precisely, is conservative about it, but it'd at least be tasty.

Exactly! It's been proving to us that we don't need the GOP in order to have a successful nation.

They don't want us to know that.

Why do they regard a living wage as bad? Are they in favor of people working for almost nothing?

Oh, wait. I forgot.

I'm thinking there's been a month-long drinking binge policy for admins/mods.
As in, it's okay-you don't have to stop drinking.
And then we come here and talk about multiple threads, repeats, and the shiatty job they're doing. Drives traffic up twenty-five percent, I hear.

Last time I read on the subject, I believe it was about $20,000 per year.

That doesn't sound obscenely bland to anyone else?

That kind of food is why people seek refuge in McDonalds and Pizza Hut: it might not taste good but at least it has some flavor, even if the flavor is beef grease.
 
2012-05-11 07:01:05 PM  
Some bacon, some chives or fresh green onions chopped thin, and a little sour cream, and I think we'd be in business.

I have a habit of not measuring ingredients when I cook, but here's my potato salad recipe, such as it is:
Equal parts small white potatoes (not idahos), red potatoes, and Peruvian blue/purple potatoes
Minced red bell pepper
Corn
Salt, pepper
Mayonnaise
Salsa
Boil potatoes with salt and pepper. Do not overlook. Toss with bell pepper and corn. Make dressing by stirring some salsa into mayo. Adjust to taste. Stir dressing into potatoes. Chill, serve cold.

Lunaville: Equal parts small white potatoes (not idahos), red potatoes, and Peruvian blue/purple potatoes


Either Peru or Ecuador is the genetic homeland of the potato, and I think both countries have something like 3000 different varieties.

Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
