    I eyeball it, but most is just tomato sauce, paste, seasoning (cumin, oregano, and chili powder feature heavily), your favorite sauce thickener, and some stock to thin it out so you don't end up with a clay brick by the time the flavors marry. You can also go about roasting your own peppers, onions, and tomatoes, drying them out, reconstituting them, blending them, running them through a sieve, and then getting the sauce to the right consistency. I would not touch anything sensitive after that series of events. This is why I usually just shrug and get the canned kind. I know it's not authentic, but it's enchiladas for two. I'm not doing all the aforementioned work for just me and mom :p

    If you cared to find that out, there are numerous examples out there right now. Companies go out of business, merge, change the terms of a plan (at renewal), etc., all the time. Providers change their participation in networks as well. Usually the provider is left holding the bag. Consider a third party administrator that acts as the facilitator for several insurance companies. It guarantees payment, it provides authorization and staffing services, and it negotiates contracts. Now consider that it goes out of business. Several things start to happen. The first is that some notice has to be given by the insurance company (or third party administrator) to the providers. Unfortunately, this notice doesn't have to be particularly long and since the company's going out of business it doesn't have much to fear.

    Enchiladas are ultra easy to make. Just make sure you season the meat and sauce super well. There are great make-your-own red sauces out there, though this is one occasion when I am fine with using canned/jarred and adding to it. For meat I will use ground pork sometimes, but most of the time it's chicken that I've previously cooked in the oven in a little foil pouch with very heavy-handed seasoning (garlic powder, chili powder, salt, black pepper, oregano, cumin, cinnamon (very small amount). Once that cools, I shred up the chicken. I brown some onions in a skillet until they're cooked but not limp (think fajita texture), add a half a roasted red bell pepper all diced up, some green chiles or a small bit of jalapeno, the chicken, and a splash of whatever sauce I'm using. Some sauce goes in the bottom of the casserole dish, then tortillas with some of the filling, then once there's no room left it gets topped with more sauce, and a first layer of cheese. There is no such thing as too much cheese, but you don't want a mountain on there that does not melt, so I let the first layer melt, then add another layer, then crank it up to a broil for a moment or two to get that nice brown top (which your photo lacks... hell the cheese does not look entirely melted in spots). You can add the little sprinkle of cilantro for color, but I just serve it up next to some sour cream and that's that. It's interesting that your photo does get one thing right: I am a "seam up" enchilada maker. I've never understood why people put them seam down. It's a mess to get them out of the pan in one piece. I put them seam up with a toothpick if it's needed. The cheese tends to seal them once it melts.

    So it's only Atlantic hurricanes that are Category 5 and make landfall as hurricanes and they have to have hit the US? That's a rather narrow path compared to "no major hurricanes." Even then, however, several of the hurricanes on your list were since Katrina, and disprove the earlier assertions.

    Not a clue what that means. Your original quote was about global climate change. Is there a specific part of that which states the climate change would be localized to North America? Even if I humor that, what about Hurricane Patricia?

    Correct, and the assertion was that there had been no major hurricanes since Katrina. Given that the above quote was about global climate change, your chart only seems to bolster my point that there have been major storms since.

    Not to give them any ammo, but I would hardly say there have been no major storms since. There have been a number of them --- some records broken --- but few major hurricanes making landfall in the US. Expand your parameters globally and take another look.

    If you add up the basic numeric equivalents for each letter in my name, you get 123. If you use the 1-9 means of assigning numbers to those same letters, the total is 33 --- year of Christ. And yes, a lack of logic does cause me to reject information. It's in my nature I guess :) Or maybe I was born in 1947 (everyone born in that year is a spook).

    I like the part about how people who watch Game of Thrones are messed up, which the author knows from not watching the show, but looking up a 16-minute montage of nude scenes. People who look up montages of nudity contained in shows they are too good to watch are definitely not messed up.

    To ignore is to attack indirectly. Trump could not be attacked in this manner - and when attacked directly - the man knows how to fight back.

    If you had any intellectual honesty at all, then you would admit that there is a giant difference between the press attacking Ron Paul, and the press attacking someone who just so happens to be a celebrity with an extremely combative personality. The only reason that you won't admit it is because it would completely ruin the entire little game that you are playing here.

    Look man: Everyone knows that you are on some crazy, pathological mission to smear Trump, and that you have zero interest in being honest in your assessment of what is going on. You can try to rewrite history all that you want and pretend that the media/GOP establishment have been doing nothing but pushing Trump all along, but there is a grand total of like three imbeciles here that are going to agree with you. Do feel free to carry on.

    It's not my fault if you want to live in some fantasy dimension where you expect the public to instantly jump to electing a libertarian President. You should be thankful that someone like Trump has emerged to bring the chaos that is necessary to make the transition possible within our lifetimes, instead of wasting your energy trying to get Hillary Clinton elected. Sad.

    When do effective establishment shills realize that it does not matter? This is not about supporting a libertarian or even a conservative. This is about supporting anyone that the propaganda wing of the NWO (the MSM) is dead-set against - for the sole reason that he is an outsider. Trump is anathema to TPTB and that is all that matters at this point. Whatever chaos he brings will be an improvement.

    Not a problem. My issue is that a lot of the people who seem to object to me speaking Spanish in public seem completely incapable of stringing together a coherent sentence of their own. Personally, I prefer market solutions to language preference as I stated earlier. There are certain ethnic markets where you're almost required to speak whatever the shop's products' national origin demands. Hell, there are certain areas of the country where you might be better off speaking another language to order a soup or cup of coffee. From an official standpoint, I have no problem with English becoming the official language of documents and phone lines and other such Government services (since we have them at all). Groups could easily translate those materials if a certain area has a need for them. There's certainly no shortage of people who can guide others through a brochure or process, and perhaps for a very small acknowledgement on the back of a pamphlet, La Raza could do something other than race bait and give people ammo to extend the hatred that keeps the organization in business. Let me extend this to what you said in your response. When you go to the store and everyone else is speaking Spanish, the issue is twofold. The first is that the patrons are speaking Spanish, which really should not bother you unless you feel a strange need to know what everyone around you is saying. Eavesdropping? :p The second is actually far more serious, though, which is that you can't do business with employees who can't communicate with you. I have voiced concerns along those lines in the past at some delightful Asian markets with mixed success. If they want your money, a business is going to do its best to help you out. The school example goes back to what I just said. Official languages dictate how public schools should operate. There are going to be a LOT of kids whose English is subpar, and at that point they should be taught within their own communities or at least tutored on that specific issue. There will be many people who fail going through school that way, but the ones that emerge tend to be well-rounded, truly bilingual, and a step ahead of their peers. And as for the custard? Again, the owner should be able to install whatever policies he or she wishes, and for whatever reasons. Let's assume the guy really is just the biggest racist ever. The next action shouldn't be to grab a pitchfork and go after him. It should be to shrug my shoulders and say "Okay. So?" and either order some custard or go somewhere else :)
