"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
-10-cheapest-u-s-cities-to-live-in TX is home to 3 of the 10 and can claim the #1 spot. It has a 32% poverty level, double the state's 17% which is higher than the national average, but hey! Alabama, Arkansas, and Arizona get a triple A standing in the top 10 as well. NC, SC, NH, and TN look interesting.
School shootings are now every three days. Malls are maybe every 3 months. maryland-shooting-obama-gun-violence but freedoms to profit from tools of death are in the constitution. Profit over life and profit over safety are American values.
No one understands them, everybody picks on them. I think a national holiday is in order. A day of recognition and celebration or mourning for the oppressed is the least their country could do. Duck Dynasty and Nugent could be the celebrity guests, and maybe if we're lucky Glen Beck. There's gays and working people, two Americas. Homosexuality and abortion are the two most important issues facing America. Sean Hannity's boyfriend would be disappointed.
There is a comparison chart for all the flood stories. Who caused it, who was the hero, who was the redeemer, why it had to be.
Huckabee just threw down the gauntlet for the new GOP war. They were losing their war on women, so switching to sex, with an assist from the evangelical- fun is sin- crowd the battle lines are drawn. Now for the new GOP purity test in the primaries, prospective candidates must present proof of a wet dream. They must also seek forgiveness for the 3 or 4 erections that occur during a normal sleep cycle.
I am beginning to detect a marked strategy coming out of the right (some should forgive me for not recognizing this sooner). The strategy of endlessly debating even long-settled political matters. This strategy has really become an end in itself, however.
On Wednesday (Jan. 22) in the small town of Craig, Colorado (northwestern part of state) Interior Secretary Sally Jewell refused to allow a reporter from the Craig Daily Press access to a public meeting (this is illegal in the state of Colorado due to our open meeting laws) concerning sage-grouse protections. Her comment on why the press wasn't allowed was that she wanted to "help foster an open and frank discussion." This was not only illegal, but it obviously goes against the administration's policy of "transparency".
I was just drawing equivalency between the Corleones and the GOP. Change any you like but so far I have the Don comparing to Reagan. Ted Cruz is a hot head like Sonny. Marco Rubio is like Fredo, kind of fumbling around. Rand Paul is either Clemenza or Tessio[Abe Vigoda]. Chris Christie is turning out to be Mo Green, the outsider seeking a power grab against the establishment. For Michael the low key power figure, I think Jeb Bush is a fit. The consigliere Tom is most likely Scott Walker.
Luca Brasi is Rush Limbaugh, the mad Turk is O'Really, the dirty cop is Hannity.
HGI group doing Sandy Relief work has a poor track record and was quietly fired.....Rockefeller Developers is involved as is Samsom's Law Firm. This story is like the energizer bunny it justs keep going. No wonder the FBI and the Feds are involved.
Thom. Please help. I have not been able to find a way to buy a gun over the internet and have it shipped directly to me. A purchased firearm must be sent from the seller, directly to a Federally licensed dealer, and then transferred to me following the laws of that state, which include Federal form #4473 (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) call in, FFL dealer registration, and a required government issued PHOTO I.D. , and in many cases a waiting period.
The same laws apply to FFL dealers at gun shows.
