  1. Funny, even our Northern neighbor is mocking the current occupant of the WH. I really wonder what other leaders in other countries think of Joe? Alberta Premier Mocks Biden for Refusing Canadian Oil: 'You Don’t Need the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet to Patrol the Great Lakes' That’s why we were so taken aback when President Biden vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline. It would have safely delivered 830,000 barrels a day of responsibly produced Canadian energy to the United States, more than displacing the 670,000 barrels a day that you bought from Putin’s Russia last year. We were also perplexed when the Administration’s response to sky high gas prices was to plead with OPEC to produce and sell more oil, while working to lift sanctions on Iranian and Venezuelan exports. White House officials have reportedly discussed a Presidential visit to Saudi Arabia to press for more production of their oil, and exports to the US. Oil that is used to buy cluster bombs dropped on Yemeni civilians. Senators, Calgary is a lot closer to Washington than Riyadh. And you don’t need the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet to patrol the Great Lakes. To quote former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, “we don’t have to send the National Guard into Alberta.” https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/chris-queen/2022/05/18/alberta-premier-blasts-biden-for-importing-middle-eastern-oil-instead-of-canadian-oil-n1598687
  2. The left hates Elon Musk because he’s a twin threat that doesn’t tolerate BS Why does the left hate Elon Musk? It’s simple, really: Because he can’t be controlled, and because he doesn’t tolerate BS. The left can’t stand either. It insists on control, to the point of systematically eliminating or co-opting anything that might serve as an independent power center. (Their fear is justified: “Music clubs” turned out to be a major factor in Czechoslovakia’s 1989 anticommunist Velvet Revolution.) And it insists on not merely spreading BS, but on requiring people to repeat and endorse its BS as a sign of submission. Musk is thus a twin threat. As the sometime richest man in the world, he has a lot of power, and it’s not under anyone else’s control. And he’s a nerd, with a nerd’s low tolerance for bull. Where more socially “polished” people would go out of their way to show fealty to leftist tropes popular among the Gentry Class regardless of their absurdity, Musk is happy to point out that the emperor has no clothes. https://nypost.com/2022/05/19/the-left-hates-elon-musk-because-hes-a-tycoon-they-cant-bully/?utm_campaign=iphone_nyp&utm_source=pasteboard_app
  3. Everyday is a new record. Not to worry, it is not Biden’s fault. I seem to remember the Dem strategy under Obama was a to skyrocket the cost of energy. Everyone should use public transportation or just walk in over populated cities that are cesspools for viruses. Energy Sec. Granholm denies high gas prices are result of Biden admin policies during spar with Hawley https://www.foxnews.com/politics/energy-secretary-granholm-denies-high-gas-prices-result-biden-admin-policies-senate-hearing-hawley
  4. Musk is to dangerous to the Left/Dems as he exposes their real aims, and has a platform big enough to get that word out. Left seethes as Elon Musk calls Democrats ‘the party of division and hate:’ ‘TERRIBLE AMERICAN’ https://www.foxnews.com/media/elon-musk-calls-democrats-party-division-hate-terrible-american
  5. It is interesting how the Dems are now redefining “replacement theory” and trying to attach it all to the GOP. It is almost like they don’t remember the internet exists. According to some, the people on these flights are just everyday government workers, or something like that. Sort of like the flights between Vegas and Groom Lake.
  6. Saw the “my Filipina” reference and thought the same thing. To the OP, marriage is a two way street, and having a spouse from a different culture that picked up their life and moved to another country adds more challenges. I would suggest marriage counseling at this point, as well as more education along cultural differences. Good Luck!
  7. It sounds like you want to seek some revenge. It is probably better to simply withdraw the I129F, and move on. Revenge may seem like some level of satisfaction on your part, but it will be empty, so better to use your energy elsewhere. Good Luck!
  8. The ROK in 1976 was still fairly 3rd worldish. It does seem funny though that the family did not check the orphanages for the lost twin.
  9. I completely agree, EVs will work for some, potentially many, and Tesla certainly is leading the way. I have never been a big fan of their styling, but early adopters tend to overlook things like that, Which Model do you have? About 3 miles from me is a Tesla dealership/service location, so I see a lot of Tesla's around the area here. My neighbor recently sold her Toyota and got a Model Y. The funny thing is her boyfriend has a Subaru, and whenever they take a road trip that is the vehicle they take. I am curious if Tesla will continue to increase the amount of service centers in the future. I know when they started, they would either do the service work on-site or get the vehicle and take it to a central location, but as they grow further, that model is not really sustainable except for maybe their highest paying customers. I know in MI, they are limited as to how they can conduct sales, but even EVs can have issues such as interior problems with seats, or other class A surfaces (i.e. it is not all software). I need to get my wife a new car soon, and I considered an EV based on her driving, but for what she wants (pretty much all the bells and whistles), and the fact that we will only keep it for a minimum of 3.5 years, the business case for an EV did not make sense. Sure we would save money over those 3.5 years, but not enough to overcome the difference in the MSRP for comparably equipped ICE or EV vehicles. Plus our electric service is maxed right now, so I would either need to bring in another 50A+ service, or get an electrician in and juggle the current box (we are all electric except for the HWH, and Furnace).
  10. I actually heard this speech and it was cringeworthy. I believe the new spokesperson for Old Joe is actually worse, but of course this person is not a heartbeat away.
  11. Another interesting economic view of buying an EV. Who Can Afford a Tesla, Ford or Chevy Electric Vehicle? https://www.thestreet.com/investing/who-can-afford-a-tesla-ford-or-chevy-electric-vehicle
  12. Seems a little odd, but apparently you have to submit a declaration that you are not changing your name on your new German passport. Not familiar with this, is it a simple letter possibly notarized, or is there a specific form?
  13. Scammers are getting more creative. Be careful. 2 Michigan women tricked by convincing, sophisticated Amazon scam: What to know The calls appear to have three steps: The initial caller claims to be from Amazon and tells you there has been a fraudulent purchase on an Amazon account. Then, the conversation quickly turns to reveal that you have bank accounts with four or five well-known names — Wells Fargo, PNC Bank, Bank of America, Chase and others. Maybe that's where you really bank, maybe you don't and will let it slip where you do have accounts. Last, you're told that someone has used your identity to open up a string of bank accounts. A call that began from Amazon somehow ends up with a federal agent on the line to convince you that you'll be arrested soon because you're now suspected of money laundering. The caller might imply that hundreds of thousands of dollars were transferred into questionable accounts opened with your ID information. https://www.freep.com/story/money/personal-finance/susan-tompor/2022/05/19/amazon-scam-money-laundering/9794344002/
  14. This really doesn't seem logical. Does "Trumpian" politics really exist in CA? I do love the title of the story though. A story titled "Welcome to Portugal, the new expat haven. Californians, please go home," reports that the number of Americans living in Portugal has risen by 45% in the past year with many of those Americans moving from California in order to escape high housing costs, pandemic lockdowns, and "Trumpian politics" in the United States.
