Holy f’in smokes. If you walk away from this post learning anything, it should be that having the Chili Cheese Fries topped with an Egg is a must. Once you start eating it you can’t stop. It’s not the fries that make this dish (which somehow stay crispy through all this). The Chili, Cheese and Egg combo is a good one. Muy bueno y muy rico.C- Old Miami Dolphin photos at The305.Com.
D- The presidency of Ronald Reagan is worth mentioning when conservatives turn to criticizing JFK's, as Bark Bark Woof Woof notes.
Mr. Reagan wasn't even dead before the movement began to name something in every county in America for him, from a school to a septic system, and all a presidential candidate had to do was invoke his name at every stop to get the audience to swoon like Justin Bieber fans. This is despite the fact that in the current climate in the GOP, Mr. Reagan and his record of tax hikes and his willingness to compromise with the Democrats in Congress couldn't get him into the 2012 primaries ahead of Gary Johnson. And what Mr. Douthat says about JFK -- "We confuse charisma with competence, rhetoric with results, celebrity with genuine achievement" -- is applicable to the Reagan legacy as well.E- Eye on Miami makes a prediction.
