"RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The state Board of Elections revealed Wednesday that more than 35,000 people may have double voted by casting ballots in North Carolina and another state during the 2012 election.

The shooting has wags touting terrorists, gun control [army base with guns? who'd a thunk?] psych eval failure, etc. But another component is the fact that it IS TX.

Massive cuts to elderly, poor, children, disabled are to give them dignity. Paul-ryan-family-wealth mentored Ryan in dignity. Why, he took his lunch to school in a brown paper bag! He knows what a hammock is, [I doubt those being cast aside know a hammock from a ham hock-'Why does he want to take our weekly ham hock? Can we keep our beans?']

Was Your Ham Boiled Alive?


Thanks to state Agricultural Gag laws, you'll never know. It's a felony to report it in more and more states every year. A society that lives on and condones unimaginable cruelty should probably stop wondering why it has the highest prison incarceration rate in the world.
