Tipped off by the black Chief of Police.
Hardly. The local Democrats are running from him like cockroaches from light.
My friend, Cannon is a Charlotte native, like Anthony Foxx before him. Yankees have nothing to do with it.
Also - a note to Townhall management - there were THREE simultaneous video ads embedded on this webpage, all running at once. I recognize that you have to sell ads but the resulting cacophony makes them meaningless.
Term limits are a bit of a red herring. Districts which elect corrupt, incompetent politicians (courtesy of special interest groups ranging from organized labor to the AARP and NAACP) will continue to do so; they will continue to spawn such candidates. The name on the ballot may change but the ideology won't. The organizational memory of Congress in such a setting would reside in paid staff. These inside-the-Beltway career political operatives are more liberal as a group than the Congress itself, and move from Congressional office to K street and back with abandon. A term-limited Congress would only increase their power and influence. The solution isn't term limits but an informed electorate, starting with item #2 on the list - beginning with eliminating the ability of public school employees to unionize and shutting down the NEA and AFT.
He's so toxic that if you used him as fertilizer he'd destroy the land for a thousand years.
Simply counting heads on active duty is an oversimplification. It doesn't consider the use of reserves to compliment full time personnel. It also doesn't consider advances in technology which require fewer boots on the ground to accomplish objectives. None of this justifies the usual metastatic increases in defense spending. It's time for reasonable value analysis measures to be undertaken on everything from weapons systems to base services - and to be undertaken without considering the impact on specific states and congressional districts.
"...Obama would have you believe that without government intervention, businesses don’t care about fuel efficiency. They actually care more than the government does because it really is their money they use to pay for gas." In the case of heavy trucks, your comment makes sense, since fuel is a significant component of the cost of operating freight trucks. Thus the engineering focus on aerodynamic improvements. Direct fuel consumption is a work in progress - hybrid heavy trucks are in the development phase. In the case of light trucks, fuel is a much less significant part of overall cost. These are tools which spend much less time moving and much more time on the job site. Their operating cost is small compared with the associated labor cost and productivity impact. They also are distributed among a large user population, frequently including individuals or small businesses with just a couple of trucks. These users don't focus as much on fuel efficiency. Whatever the thought may be on anthropogenic climate change, it is clear that oil is a finite resource whose extraction is becoming increasingly expensive. It's time for manufacturers to build product which uses less of it while still getting the job done. This won't happen without external pressure - but can and will happen with it.

This chaos has been enabled by the destruction of government and the church by liberals who want to throw money at symptoms rather than solve problems. Until and unless liberal politicians and liberal churches stop enabling, nothing's going to change.
