Let us see here. This is what you get today when you go to college. First you earn your BS and that equals Bull S***. Then comes MS and that is More S***. And lastly you get your PHD of which is Piled Higher and Deeper. You see folks figures do not lie but liars figure and college students are taught on how to figure. Proof of this, look no further than our government.
Now folks we know what goes on here! There are judges who have compromised their oath and office for the reason of assuring the Democratic Party gets votes. With voter ID a person can no longer go to the grave yard or obituary column in the news paper to gather names so that they can vote multiple times. Gee, this has been going on since 1913, why stop now? I do not think that the Democrats could win many elections honestly.
What does one do when you call for help from the police department and an officer from an outside district, ten miles away, arrives well after the situation has been calmed by two other legal officers and within 2 minutes this officer states "We do not have the time for this!" pulls out his automatic, fires his shot between the other two local officers and kills the 18 year old boy with both parents present and witnessing the event. This offending officer is placed on paid furlough?? I am mad, madder than Hell, I will be hard pressed to even look at a policeman again. It just goes to prove that a human being and his faults are no different when he is wearing a badge and carrying a gun and if nothing else he becomes more suspect and disarming, a very testy situation to be in. Facing an errant bandit is one thing, an errant police officer is something else. The event noted above happened in Boiling Spring Lakes North Carolina on 07 January 2014.

Walter, Pope Francis scares me. He does not explain himself. I do think that he meant that he Is chastising those who do have the means in sharing do not as Christ himself had taught. Before our government got involved, the general public was very involved with supporting the poor. In many communities there existed the Community Chest. A volunteer organization of nurses, doctors, and upright citizens who took care of their poor.
I do believe that the Engineer became mesmerized by the monotony of staring down the tracks with nothing more than a throttle and a break at his use. Imagine driving down the turnpike at 80 miles per hour staring at the road ahead with no steering wheel. I believe that if that engine had a Fireman with the Engineer on board the chance to be mesmerized or hypnotized would not have happened as I believe has happened on that train. It would be like having a passenger in your car, particularly a talkative one. It would cost less than those robot controls as well.
We need to let the US Congress know how we will do all we can to defend Israel and we expect the US Congress to make it known that regardless what the White House thinks, Israel will be defended.
In all due respect for Mike McIntyre (D7-NC), he is a true representative of the people of Brunswick County NC, he is known as a RED DOG democrat of which I have to admit that he has done one hell of a job for us, although I believe that we could have shaved a lot of waste and expense with his largess. We could do better to reduce government.
Where is Illio? A USMC Veteran who had run against Mike McIntyre USC 7 last term. He is a true patriot and I believe that he could beat Sen. Hagan. Us folks from the tar state should induct Illio to run for the US Senate. He would drive Sen. Reid to the Coo-coo's Nest.

Truly amazing, back in 1900 we had Teddy Roosevelt as President, a true Patriot and American. Then came 1913 and I am totally at a loss for what had happened, Woodrow Wilson (D) became President and changed our Constitution and I am not sure that Amendment XVI was ever totally ratified by the states and I cannot believe that the states would have ever given up control over the US Senate from their authority. The US Constitution Article 2 Subject 3 states clearly that the Senators are chosen by the state legislature. USC Amendment XVI changes that and makes US Senators chosen by the populace like US Congressmen. Well folks there is our problem! The states have lost their authority and in doing so we have gotten into this mess that we are in. The fifty states would have equal say in the proceedings and more prone to working with the Congress not as a lone ranger like Harry Reid running the entire Senate like we have, impossible before 1913. We need to repeal Amendments XVI (Senators) and XVII (taxes).
Photography is an art like Michelangelo or Raphael on canvass or sculpture or in this case on paper. A professional photographer truly are only as good as their talent can express. The expression of the scene comes from the mind and heart of the photfrapher and what the camera sees is not the image as in itself but what the photographer sees even subconsciously, the expressions, the lighting, the backdrop, the subtleness and mood of the scene that would be the outcome of the photograph, A photographer at a wedding would want to perform his best works but if his mind and attention are focused on taking photographs of something that he deplores and hateful to him that the photo album would not express his best work and therefore the couple would be very disappointed in the outcome of the cold and expressionist photographs and they would want their money back. Do you understand this Judge? Would you use a police detective photographer from the AID to perform at your wedding or would you try to find an artisan photographer who becomes a part of the scene? The Pope hated Michelangelo and vice versa but it was his love for God that he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and the Holy Father left him alone. Anyone can take pictures and throw them into an album but this case is another example of "In your face" by a judge, that is the shame of it.
