I live in Florida and after I got off of work(I work from home) I did not feel like cooking so I got on my phone and ordered a spicy turkey club and a beef burrito from the WaWA down the street.

So I roll in to the WaWa and collect my grub and also two 24 OZ cans of Earthquake.  A 12% high gravity beer.

Now I am a booze snob but if I am gotta get shiatty and eat a burrito and a turkey club later, I do not need to buy lagunitas.  for 12 bucks I can put a buzz on and fill my belly.

Giant redneck in front of me is laughing cause I got a mask on and says "Why don't you drink beer like a real man". He is holding a sixer of Mich Ultra Light.  My piss on a non drinking day has more alcohol content.

I point out that my cheap ass beer has 2 and 1/2 times the booze content of his beer. Bascially one 24 oz has the same amount of booze in his entire sixer.

The guy behind the counter is laughing his ass off at this point.

I offered to buy him a couple of them so he can really know what is like to get a buzz on.  He gave me the finger and walked out.

I offered to buy him one and chug it in the parking lot.

I guess the 5'3 120 lb dude shamed him...

"They have tried to put a gun to our heads to make us fold," Creighton said at a recent City Council meeting. "They want our citizens to feel scared and vulnerable. Don't be. They want to increase political heat or we become the next victim in a long line of victims in today's cancel culture."

So one of my coworkers commutes in from Atwater. My employer requires that everyone wear masks, but my coworker refused (hoax, socialism, freedom, etc). He was invited to stay home until he was able to comply with the new work requirement. He enjoyed nearly a week of freedom before succumbing to sweet, sweet socialism. I tried to teach him the secret antifa handshake on his first day back.

Glad you feel that way. Naturally, you support withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities, right?

Don't forget the lovely town of Los Banos -- Spanish for "The Toilets."

FTA: Atwater has more coronavirus cases per capita than Merced county's two largest cities, Merced (population 83,000) and Los Banos (population 40,000), according to a Times analysis. Despite being home to 10.6% of the county's population, the city has about 16.6% of known infections in the county.

Who was in charge of the Naming Committee?

Baños also means baths. It's named for the springs nearby.

You say that, but other than "gracias" the most commonly used phrase used by visitors to Spanish-speaking lands is: Donde es el bano? and it is my belief that most people aren't looking to bathe.

I'm just being argumentative.


No, you're not.

Hey Creighton, ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff​ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff​ffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu​uuuuuu

I read that and have no idea how "cancel culture" even enters the picture. Is someone cancelling their city's tv show?

It's just random buzzwords with them. It's all meaningless.

common sense is an oxymoron: "The only thing we did with the sanctuary city is allow businesses to open up," Creighton said. "We still socially distance. We still wear masks. We still do good hygiene. ... It seems like we're arbitrarily being picked on."

Those 800-plus COVID cases in your pissant town aren't exactly arbitrary, mister mayor.  Your leadership has failed.

And another reminder that inland California is as conservative as anyplace in the country.


More importantly, they're not being arbitrarily picked on. They're being held to the same standards as everyone else. Defy the state health officer's orders? No emergency money for you. It's that simple, but some people feel like they're, I dunno, privileged or something.
