    So, a guy is before the judge for killing a bald eagle, and the judge is about to throw the book at him.
    Just before he sentences the guy, he asks, "what possible reason, on God's green earth, would ANYBODY have for killing a bald eagle, the symbol of our Nation's pride?"

    The man replied, "well, your honor, I'm a private pilot, and I was flying over some wooded area when my plane developed engine trouble, and I crash landed into the forest.
    I broke my right leg and left arm in the crash, and was all alone for 8 days and nights, and I was beginning to die of hunger.
    I saw a bald eagle land in a tree above my plane crash, and I picked up a rock and threw it at him, never imagining I would actually hit him and kill him.
    I made a small fire, grilled the eagle, and it literally saved my life, and I was rescued the next day.

    The judge, impressed, pronounced the man not guilty, due to the extenuating circumstances.
    The man thanked the judge profusely, and was leaving the courtroom when the judge called, "hold on, just a second, I just have one more question"

    The man stopped and turned around, and the judge asked, "I just gotta know, what does eagle taste like?"
    The man replied, 'it's actually pretty good - somewhere between spotted owl and California Condor".

    Deh. She derails when she can't substantiate her argument. It's a non-admission of defeat.

The minute you decide to engage with their argument about that something being racist, you lose, because you are doing what they want, which is ignore the corruption of the politician.

    Not really, they average about 2/3 the size of a carrier pigeon.

    Tomorrow is Ham & Cheese Omelet day. With about six to seven sausage links (and a sausage patty or two if they're not dry), nine to ten slices of crispy bacon (more if no patties), a biscuit and gravy, some fish, a small blueberry muffin, two glasses of good OJ and a banana.

    Only roguetech boffins have the Magechanical and Biotransmutation chops to pull that sort of thing off.
