How long does it take a turkey to thaw?

I bought one at around 2pm today. If I leave it in the microwave overnight will it be thawed enough to cook tomorrow? It's just a breast, not the whole thing.

My Hoot Owl is back!

It came back South again, and I heard the HOOt-HooT-Hoo again!

It's a lovely Great Horned Owl that I have the great pleasure of acting like an idiot at night when I hear it and hoot back at it .

I can only imagine that it has migrated to escape the cold another winter, because it is hooting it's little heart out.

I have a jury notice

that I can't get away from?

Anyone else get one?

Could we have something like a friend's list?

Where you can add the people you like that post, and can have them prioritized as your favorite?

It's just a suggestion. We have a block list, I'd like to have a "buddy" list.

Thank you for your consideration.

The South - I live here

I live in a state that can be characterized by racism, lynching, lobotomizing people for being homosexual just 24 years ago.

I feel it as much in MS, but it irritates me that there is this equating of LGBT Southern people as being so idiotic that we enjoy the abuse that homophobes regularly heap on people. We don't.

We simply like where we live, and forget it, if you don't like living in this particular climate, this particular state, or this particular are where your family lives.

We KNOW. We know the people that have suffered, have suffered ourselves, and believe me, we get it.

I hope that St. Peter

pisses gasoline on him when he arrives at the pearly gates before he banishes his arrogant ass to hell. I hope that gasoline flows in as many barrels as his policies have desecrated our national parks for eternity, in trickles, just so he can get the entire hellfire experience.

If I'm lucky, maybe I can get a skillet and cook an egg over his inflamed, seething and screaming body for breakfast. Hopefully, every person he has made homeless will get the opportunity to do so over his corrupt, evil, raving torment.

It will warm more people than he ever did.

Oh, you are back

I guess it's time to rail against Republicans instead of denigrating the actual Democrats that have despised Republican and Republican-lite policies to begin with.

I'm sure you will have an ocean of fodder to feed us now that Republicans have Congress, and I hope to hear how it's the fault of everybody that despised Republican policies that voted against them because we weren't team players with Dems that espoused them.

Hurricane that chases us all underground. NSFW (breasts exposed)

This is a powerful song that addresses the torture that our nation, YES, The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA committed torture.

(it takes a full moment of silence before it starts)

When John McCain

can call you out, with considerable credibility, for after all he knows exactly what it is like to be POW and be subject to torture, you have *lost your way*.

Why in the hell does Obama put himself in a position where even the most feeble of critics can rightly claim that he fails by refusing to prosecute torturers?

Don't blame Republicans - don't blame everyone that is in shock of the horrific things done in our name, no - if you fail to order the AG to prosecute the architects of torture, it's the fault of the man in charge, President Obama. It isn't the fault of everybody else that is outraged over rectal feeding, freezing people to death and TORTURE.

It also isn't the fault of everyone that attempts to defend Obama's failure to prosecute them - but it is their fault for trying to pretend that said failure is moral, right and good for this nation.

It isn't. You know who you are. This isn't pearl clutching, this is a fundamental of civilized society - you DON'T torture, and you don't let torturers get away with it.

I have no intention of becoming a Republican

But I am seriously questioning why I should be a Democrat.

The excuses, justifications and outright bs that has been thrown up every time a Democratic politician does the wrong thing is seriously sticking in my craw.

If you can't do something because you are in the majority and it might rock the boat, and you can't do something while you are in the minority because it upsets the applecart, what you are really saying is "I don't do anything".

Correct me if I am wrong, but that has been the justifications we've all heard.

I'd like to hear a Democratic party member say "Despite (fill in the blank) I am taking a stand."
