Congress should pass this bill, and if there are congresspersons unwilling to sign on without anRead More offsetting payment, then reduce the Congress members pay accordingly. Let them experience what their constituents have been dealing with for years!

Looks OK but too overdone. I think plantings whether trees or shrubs should be along the sides ofRead More roadways instead of between lanes which blocks vision. Also could look nice with fewer plantings and probably cost a lot less too so plantings can be done in other areas too.

My first comment about thecurrent cold wave was just having fun. Read my link if you want. Let meRead More ask, what is the basis for your belief in AGW?

Re AGW: science, not politics. And if you were really joking, then fine…the problem isn'tRead More denial but less than clear writing.

Most of the post Kennedy reputation was initiated by his widow and brothers who started the wholeRead More Camelot persona, with full media consent. All of the family was so protective of every aspect of JFK. Just as they were when he was alive. The serious medical issues, the continual womanizing and infidelity all protecting him with the apparent agreement of the liberal media. By today's comparisons, Kennedy would be a moderate Republican, but IF all the facts of his now known past were known to the American people at the time in 1960, I do not believe he ever would have been elected. The Warren Commission was also somewhat of a shame, operating so fast that many facts were excluded or never really investigated. This was done by Lyndon B Johnson so that any conspiracy theories about Cuba or the USSR would be quickly averted so as to avoid a war or retaliation against either of these so called "enemies" of America at the time. Sadly, just like with Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, I do not believe we will ever know the entire truth as to WHO was responsible for JFK's murder. The Mafia, Cuba, Right Wingers of the era, even LBJ himself, ALL had reasons to be considered involved in some way or another in this tragedy. While it was a dark spot in American history, the worse part of the entire event is the lack of of Americans obtaining and getting the TRUTH of that tragic day in Dallas 50 years ago today.

All of this financial devastation because the Tea Baggers of Congress still cannot accept that theRead More ACA is law & of course the reps that fight the hardest against insurance for all are from the states that have the most not & under insured citizens.

You are a pure and typically uninformed, believe what they tell you to, and do what they say notRead More what they do, LIBERAL MEMBER OF THE HERD CITIZEN. Thank God, oh my I said God, most Americans are not one of you. Tea Bathers, how does it feel to be part of a group that does nothing but is fed absolute crap, believes it and does nothing but call others names. Shame on You.
calvin mortz November 12, 2013 at 06:39 pm
I agree 100% L. Adams. The Tea Bathers as you term the Radical Right Insurgency are fed dailyRead More propaganda that is indeed in your words "absolute crap." I also agree that the names the far-out-right call the President of the United States is a stain on all Americans. Right with you when you say, "Shame on You."

WOW, This is crazy, people are just wacko. My girls were both Girl Scouts and it is a wonderfulRead More organization. Does this mean that Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are gay communist too. I think I see a correlation don't you. Unless this so call Pastor has 100% proof of this he, should be charge with slander. People who believe this kind of crap probably can be sold anything. They probably all have a Kirby vacuum too. To attack little girls like this is just wrong!! He is a Baptist right? This guy probably just hates women and beats his wife daily. That is usually the case with people like this. Him and Westboro Church must be close ties. God would not be happy!

Ken, this will never happen as long as obama, reid, pelosi and the rest of the democratic party seeRead More them as a potential voting block and members of their dependent entitlement army of lemmings.

This country has wasted more money and continues to waste more money trying to enforce unenforceableRead More laws when it could take in a whole lot of money by way of taxes (and act humanely) if it could find an organized, rational way of putting those who want to be citizens on the proper path. As for the silly comment about the prison population: poor people who see no hope commit crimes, and that does not apply only to immigrants, legal or otherwise.
Do you think the debt ceiling should be raised to avert the country going into default on its bills?

Of course it is! Although I don't see why. Let me explain. We're in the 'sequester' and theRead More gov't. shut-down. Also many repub states have furloughed personell & services to the point that these repub states barely are operational. So even with the 'fiscal-cliff', the 'sequester', the pension reductions, the firing of thousands of state employees (and now federal employees as well) the 'shut-down' tese same wrecking-ball lunatics say we still have to CUT more! These people are idiots that don't recognize the CUTS that have been made! You can't be spending more when you've dam near wrecked the country!
Josh Moore October 16, 2013 at 11:32 am
Richard. A quick scan of you're patch comments has convinced me that you're swamp scum. ProbablyRead More not the native kind, but more likely on loan from N.J. Fortunately, the budget will be passed despite your current onions. I have surveyed the land and Florida is not a good place to be when the gov't decides to stop paying its bills. That is unless you are the type who would look forward to spending the next 12 months perched on your roof day and night with an assault rifle. Poverty is within walking distance of every upscale Gulf Coast community and if you turn off their food they will be coming for yours skippy. That is a historical certainty.
