They (meaning the mj businesses) can run there money through my house painting business account for a small fee. i just have to start a house painting business. How do you think the so called "mob" laundried (sp) washed their money.
OK all you Star Trek fans, lets imagine for a second it's 500 years into the future, oil is all gone since we used every drop. Some Scientist is going to come up with a great new idea. He says hey I found this black rock (coal) and it's a great source of energy. Why haven't we used it before and why didn't those idiots 500 yrs ago exploit what mother nature gave them? How's that for a spin on what Ken said--" We've got to move off fossil fuels and use what the Earth offers in alternate fuels".
They call it military intelligence for a reason. I think that's an oxymoron myself, but he knows how to tow the party line and this is the perfect example of political correctness. Can't think for yourself, don't use common sense, but make sure you adapt, adjust and overcome. Probably the main reason he didn't re-up.
Here's an idea that will probably will not come to fruition. All those on this tread and others are invited to the Vintage Bar (attached to Terry Sports) tomorrow Sat. 2/15/14 after a day of skiing. Say 4 or 5 pm. You can introduce yourself or just say your name is Billy Smith since most of us can't put a face to a name. I know discussing politics and religion in a bar is forboddin(sp) taboo or whatever but that place is usually empty anyway so it could become interesting. At least we could agree to disagree and maybe make some progress. Look forward to seeing you all. Rys Jerry, Dan S&K,John Harvey etc. etc.
Love the analogy Mark
I could write a post as long as War and Peace to answer Mr. Shores rhetorical questions. But at the risk of boring the other bloggers I'll weigh in on some of them. First this is Kevin (why the rest of the family can't get their own log in is beyond me) anyway,why must everything be all or nothing. I would prefer a candidate who picks issues like a Chinese menu one from column A and one from B.(the way I wish I could pick my TV stations as opposed to getting a package of crap I don't want). An independent thinker can agree with ideas that come from either side of the aisle, if it is a good idea and works it shouldn't matter who came up with it. Yes, despite what has happened in the last 6 years this is a Christian nation. That is the way it was founded and the way it operated until recently. Last I checked my capitalist money says "IN GOD WE TRUST",not trust in allah. Yes the rich get richer and they do create jobs just check out any edition of Shark Tank, those people are making money and hiring others WITHOUT and Despite Uncle Sam. (they did build that). Yes election day should be a national holiday (no not for another excuse to have a sale) and all legal citizens should show current ID that proves they are allowed to vote. Did the govt. bail anyone out back during the Great Depression, not that I was taught. No one should be to big to fail. Finally since this is a Free country no one should be allowed to tell me where I can live. By you saying that insurance is $1000 cheaper in Denver you imply that Uncle Sam says you should live in Denver. NO-- if you want insurance pay for it. I don't want to subsidize your premium just so you can live here and I don't have the right to tell you to move. And if you can't afford insurance here and you don't want to move then you stay uninsured. Has nothing to do with my compassion. If your house is burning I will save you and put it out, and if tomorrow you break into my house and try to rob me you will be shot. Compassion has nothing to do with either scenario. I could go on but I think I'd be beating my head against the wall. Trying to get to 100 post is waste of time if the only thing filling those posts is hot air.
Dan S Joe here once again. first things first
"I, _, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
No citizen is any more important than the next I swore to defend the constitution and the country not the man. and yes it says to follow all orders but there is a great organization within all public servants (military police fire ect) called the oath keepers basically saying all constitutional orders only (which is accepted across the board but i digress
as for what you said to my dad please be sure to reread your comments before you claim i put words in your mouth and i quote-
"If that is really your view, your lack of compassion for your fellow human beings is stunning. You are a fine example of the true republican spirit, you got yours, to hell with everyone else"
I apologize you said you want affordable healthcare for all (fun fact if you are not gainfully employed you get it for free and if you are gainfully employed it isn't affordable I have a family I've looked into it myself) so i am sorry that i put words into your mouth i simply used basic logic (if a then b if a&b then c) I never called my dad compassionate, his views on healthcare aside, he was a fireman and EMT in NYC for 20 years THAT is why he is compassionate as for the majority of Americans? if you look at current polls (which is what we base most of our politics on) support is way below the majority from CNN December 23:
Only 35% of those questioned in the poll say they support the health care law, a 5-point drop in less than a month. Sixty-two percent say they oppose the law, up four points from November.
so no the majority of americans are not with the president on this law
as for poor people no i do not believe that poor people enjoy being poor that being said they give up and accept it and with laws like the (un)affordable care act and things like that it allows people to accept their plight in life and go well why do i need to work harder and progress when i have everything at my current salary given to me by the federal govt
I have a question for you Dan do you agree with the White House when they said it is a good thing that millions of people being forced off of full time into part time is better for home lives and that the employee will be happier because they can spend more time with their families?
Dan S. Joe Nerney here, Kevin's son. Question when did my dad ever say that everyone go to hell? and even if he is a republican (he's an Independent btw) what is wrong with believing in hand ups and not hand outs? You know I can't stand people like yourself. Automatically assume that because you want people to be given everything and you don't believe that people should have to contribute to society in order to receive said gifts that you are compassionate. What happened to the old mantra "give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach a man to fish feed him for a lifetime"
(so don't tell me I'm not compassionate)
Apparently the kid ain't as smart as he thinks. The link never made it. Anyway the link was to the newest Cadillac commercial, about working hard and getting ahead. What America is all about, not working less and still getting free stuff.
Here is why I think health care is not a right but a privilege. Pay for it yourself. Not once have I heard about Dr.'s lowering their prices because that's how capitalism works. Why can the gov't be allowed to tell insurance co's how much or who they can charge but not tell the Doctors what the rates can be. No I am not smart enough to have an alternative plan (not even smart enough to post a link that was done by my son) and my response was to Dan K's link to the article. I can't make it any more simple than logic 101. If A than B, if A and B than C. My economy is a microcosm of the Gov't as a whole.
