County Orders Removal of Christmas Lights

Good reply, but not constructive. EVERYONE, send your objections to the county commissioners' office, fill the mail box, send letters, and call all day, every day til 25th. I'm sure the residents themselves have lots of ideas.
The "stuff" used in dishwashers to keep spots from forming on dishes is what is used to help the sand/water into the fractures. What can antifracturing groups determine about it in their "bans" that the people who fracture haven't learned in the 100 years it has be happening!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do the anti ever have research, studies, plans presented to the public? No. Do you know that the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, NYC, and the Tides Fund, Canada, are funnelling $$$ via "grants" to anti-fracturing groups to keep Keystone XL pipeline from being built? A researcher testified before the Canada government (parliament ?) with evidence of such.
Get your mind out of the gutter!
Well goody goody for her. You're off topic, so go away.
Agree. This applies to every "group". Every person in any group has the SAME access, as an individual, to be represented. He/she, under the Constitution, is not also given more access just by being a part of a "group". This leaves everybody and all who DO NOT belong to a group with LESS REPRESENTATION. Sounds unconstitutional, to me!

The Myth Of JFK

JFK did serve his country in time of war. His pt boat was hit and he rescued a fellow sailor, swimming a long distance to shore. JFK had Addisons. His spine deteriorated over time from the many steroids he had to take. He did risk his own life to have surgery to fuse several vertabrae in his spine. He nearly died. I remember that well. He and Jackie lost their first child to a miscarriage. Despite pain and sorrow he worked from early morn to late in the day, talking to the average American, while campaigning. He inspired Americans because he really loved this country, and we should stand up and SHOW that belief. He once said that any epitath for him saying, "I served in the United States Navy" would be enough. True, he didn't seem to accomplish anything as president. He did get America on the road to going to the moon with all of the other NASA success, and kept Russia at bay. But mostly, he gave Americans pride in THEIR country. He inspired them. And his womanizing didn't hurt us. Lyndon Johnson was NO different in that respect. Obama is no inspiration, unless you believe Communism/Marxism is better than Freedom and independency. He is just another wannabe dictator.

Absolutely right. The press was interested in reporting what happens, not coloring their words with their own biasses.
Cruz and Lee and Paul all "set the bar" higher than its been in D.C. for a looong time. They set the bar for all. They are an inspiration for all. Even a few Democrats are stepping up and speaking out! Maybe being humiliated will help more to realize what a "representative" should do. But watch out for those who just want to get reelected! They will say anything if they think it will work for them.

The Fracking Fight Goes Way Left

You may be right, but I suspect there is also powerful influence coming from monied groups, i.e. $$$ grants from "The Rockefeller Brothers Fund", NYC AND "Tides Fund", Canada, to anti-fracking groups in Canada, against the Keystone XL Pipeline! What's that all about? Would Keystone pipeline, if installed, compete with monied interests in other investments, like truck and train transporting of oil????
