I can't speak for the others, but as with any board or council meeting, I would feel like a fly in the soup.


rhys jones 18 hours, 20 minutes ago on Jeff Peters: Republicans call shots

I like Chesty Puller's response to that (Marine Colonel in Korea):

“We’re surrounded. That simplifies the problem.”

While I'm on the digression -- some other Puller quotes --

“They are a damn sight better than the U.S. Army. At least we know that they will be there in the morning.”

“The mail service has been excellent out here, and in my opinion this is all that the Air Force has accomplished during the war.”

“There are not enough Chinamen in the world to stop a fully armed Marine regiment from going whereever they want to go”

“Take me to the Brig. I want to see the real Marines."

If a cop asks you where you got it, it would be a crime to tell him or her, since that would be a violation of your source's confidence and privacy. That's in the statutes.

There's a movement going on, a groundswell grassroots happening. We're shaking off the old guard and charting a new path. The rich will stop stealing from the poor, and start paying their fair share. We're gonna shake Mother England off our back, and Bernie is leading the charge. Yearn the Bern!!

I woulda milked the Marines too, except I thought I could find a real life. Still lookin'...

I just feel sorry for the little boy in the picture, so sad, because you won't spend your money so he can get rich.

Cry me a river, and get outta my pocket.

For all you Doubting Thomases out there, I found this tidbit posted in Facebook:

"A study conducted at the Institute of Molecular Psychiatry at the University of Bonn in Germany found that cannabis triggers the release of antioxidants, which acts as a cleansing mechanism, resulting in the removal of damaged cells and improving the efficiency of mitochondria, the energy source that powers cells, potentially increasing stamina."

No further citation provided, or necessary. This, in addition to its known cancer-fighting properties, neural benefits, vision, nausea; the list grows all the time.

"None are so blind, as those who will not see."

Good luck Charlotte!! And especially thank you for not begging the public buck. I'll bet you can make a good go of it. And when successful, you may eliminate the need for free babysitting at the new $92 million playground, so everyone will see what a bill of goods that was.


rhys jones 3 days, 22 hours ago on Paula Stephenson: What new schools mean

Man, they're all in it together. The School Board. The newspaper. The City Council. The Chamber. Each one thinks they have blank checks they can fill out. Once we gobble the bait. And we pay for their misadventures.

It's $92 million or shacks. No compromise; no alternatives. We bite the bullet, to the tune of eight grand each. If it's not in my property taxes, it's in my rent -- for kids I never had, and don't owe a dime. I'm so sick of the ongoing robbery, each case its own unique nightmare, that I am considering relocating to a much more affordable, and apparently less crooked, environment -- every bit as pretty, even more so, and less crowded. Got my eye on a couple of them.

I hate to leave so many friends behind -- but I'd also like to live somewhere with a future, where the cards aren't stacked against me going in. I'm tired of spinning my wheels for rented bedrooms. I want to OWN. This place gets less attractive all the time, and the outcome of this obscenity may weigh heavily in my decision.

In this case, a "NO" vote is a vote for progress.
