Can confirm. Food bill is waaay down (didn't realized we ate out as much as we did), and my beer and alcohol bill is waaay up. Also: the Kirkland's brand is well regarded amongst my fellow CPAs (a profession known for it's alcohol consumption as well as a level of frugality). High quality and low price. I know their Vodka is just relabeled Grey Goose. I assume their other alcohols are relabeling of much more expensive name brands as well.

Can't speak to Kirkland brand as their are none in my area but I know the Member's Mark(Walmart/Sam's Club) brand liquors tend to be medium shelf variety(Jack Daniels, Grey Goose, Beefeater, etc) that they buy from the distillers when they have a batch that isn't quite up to their specifications(color is slightly off, smell is different, etc).

Figures I can't find either that or the Canadian brand here. I've seen the bourbon but I heard it was pretty bad.

Their golden margarita bottle (with the tequila included, not the wine mix sold inside the basic store) is also highly underrated, and at $9.99 you can't beat the price.

And it seems the Trump wing of the GOP(read: the fascist wing) is pivoting to try and get McConnell to hold the "Russian hoaxers" in Senate and Congress accountable for the "hoax".

I'm actually in favor of this because it give less time on the calendar for him to shove more Federalist dick suckers onto the courts for their lifetime appointments and gives the sane more ammo to unseat him and his colleagues in November.

I’ll have to check that out. The store in Wesley Chapel was stocked to the rafters with scotch; not my favorite but the demographics in the area demand it. Seems it is the liquor of choice of South Asians and the area has a high population. They had $1500 Macallan in stock.

Over 50% of scotch is exported to India.

Agree on both counts. Moscow going after “hoaxers” doesn’t give he or Trump one additional vote in November. If anything, it’s a loser. And yes, tie up the Senate with that crap so that he F’s up the calendar for future federal judgeship appointments. Unbelievable how politically stupid the GOP is whilst entranced with the grabber. (My suspicion is that Moscow is not quite that stupid, but we’ll see)

If the loudest voices(aka Trump) keep pushing for it he'll have to throw them a bone in order to stave off their wrath because all they know is either fealty or backstabbing.

Problem is, any bone he throws has a lit fuse attached to it and Trump is definitely going to bring it back to him to keep throwing it.

Texas reopened from the Coronavirus on May 5. Typical incubation period is 7-14 days. Yesterday, day 11, the state recorded 1,801 new cases, setting a new record. Their previous high was 1,400.

Who could have seen that coming?

By a 3:1 margin, millennials say preserving life is more important than the economy.

Baby boomers are 55-45, reopen the economy even if it means more deaths.

That one puzzled me.
