It'd be straight if it were his dog but alas it is not. So he's gay.

"Porn star Stormy Daniels arrested while performing in Ohio strip club

......Police said Daniels was busted after allegedly touching three different undercover vice police officers during her performance at the Sirens club, in violation of state law barring anyone who is not a family member from touching a dancer who is either nude or semi-nude.

Court documents reportedly claim that Daniels, during her performance, forced faces of club customers into her breasts and used her exposed breast to smack their faces. She also allegedly fondled the breast of female customers.

The Columbus Police Department said in a statement posted to Twitter Thursday that the arrest was part of a "a long-term investigation into allegations of human trafficking, prostitution, along with other vice related violations." Two other individuals were arrested in connection with the investigation, according to the police...."

Cuomo is as dumb as a post. Rumor has it that he wants to be President. :rofl: He was married to one of Bobby Kennedy’s daughters, but they split up, and he’s now shacking up with some TV chef.

Happened to hear this yesterday and decided to post it because we'd had some discussion of how hurricanes ranked in the past. Here's the latest list of the costliest tropical cyclones in US history:

https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/news/UpdatedCostliest.pdf

For all United States hurricanes, Katrina (2005) is the costliest storm on record. Hurricane
Harvey (2017) ranks second, Hurricane Maria (2017) ranks third, Hurricane Sandy (2012)
ranks fourth and Hurricane Irma (2017) ranks fifth. Hurricane Maria is the costliest
hurricane on record to strike Puerto Rico and the U.S Virgin Islands.


Katrina and Harvey are tied at $125 billion if you don't adjust for inflation. But when you adjust for inflation by putting the cost of each in terms of 2017 dollars Katrina costs $160 billion to Harvey's $125 billion.

That actually surprises me. I've always felt that Katrina was a much more difficult situation to respond to because of the utter destruction involved. But I'd have thought Harvey would cost more just because it had widespread effects in a very highly populated area.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star

My guess is the total devastation of NO, was the major reason it cost more

I can see why there’s a rule against wearing cotton in the pool. Wouldn’t it soak up all that oil?

It might be a bit of a stretch but meh...it was two paragraphs in a long article. DOJ released a report and there's a lack of interest involving the feds further for oversight. Not exactly a hit piece and I'd say that police department has indeed at times resembled the gangs they battle.

I have no idea what to make of this. You put on a bikini when you really have no business wearing one (I have no business in a speedo) and then get upset when people make comments on your body?

This is similar to a video I watched yesterday of a pride parade with tons of guys walking around in assless chaps, banana hammocks, etc... and making comments that people should be more accepting of the LBGTQXRVLM community. I have no issue with who somebody loves, but parade around in that **** in a public parade, I don't give a **** what you're parading for, you are an idiot. :ohno:
