Waxturd/goomer/subversivebarry …..If this isn't another of your phony log-ins then how do you explain popping back in here after months and making comments that reference what's been happening while you "weren't here". You're a phony, lying, psychotic, coward.

<quoted text>Term limits in Vero Beach? Because they had the foresight to build a sidewalk to nowhere in order to maintain federal funding for necessary projects? Necessary projects such as red light cameras? Rebuilding the beach after every hurricane? Handicapped ramps so every diabetes ridden slug doesn't have to lift that blue leg seven inches seven times in order to pick up that 4 cheese twelve topping pizza to nibble on overnight because "ah cain't sleep well when ahm hungry?"
LOL! In my neighborhood, the city recently installed sidewalks from the sidewalk through the grassy swale! The dogs and their walkers love them; were they necessary? Not really.
Even though red light cameras are being contested in the courts, there are still more cities who are trying to implement them. It's a disaster, clogging the courts with bs because some legilator wanted his claim to fame; and probably a hefty kickback as well.
Carol? Do you vote in your local elections? Most people don't; the turnout is abysmal.

National Geographic says that new research shows the magnetic poles moving at a rapid clip 25 miles a year. A paleomagnetist at Oregon State University says that, at its current rate, the pole could move to Siberia within the next half-century.
That was 7 years ago.

NPR said that the location of the magnetic North Pole is moving toward Siberia at about 40 miles per year.
That was 2 years ago.

It said they had just discovered that it got warm in the southern summer. You just can't make this stuff up. LOL!!!

The owner of several Wendy's restaurants in Omaha, Neb., is attempting to sidestep Obamacare by cutting hundreds of workers’ hours so that they will not be legally entitled to health benefits, WOWT NBC reports.
Gary Burdette, vice president of operations for the Wendy's franchise, told the news station that costs associated with Obamacare are forcing the business to reduce hours for around 300 "non-management" employees to 28 hours a week. Scott King is the owner of the restaurants, Wendy's spokesman Danny Lynch told The Huffington Post

Guess they didn't get the memo about what happened to Darden.

Vero Beach, Florida, built a sidewalk leading to nowhere because politicians apparently didn't want to lose federal funding.
A local traffic safety committee determined a sidewalk was needed on this high-traffic road for school children to safely get to school.
Built with federal money from the Safer Routes to School program, the sidewalk now runs through an industrial area where trains roar down the west side of Old Dixie Highway and trucks rumble in and out of warehouses on the east side, a half a mile or more from any school.
"I really don't think that will ever be a high foot-traffic area," said Leon Geary, a barrier island resident who brought public attention to the sidewalk. "I've paid taxes my whole life, and it bothers me to see tax money get frittered away."
...And this is just the very tip of the iceberg.
Term limits is an absolute must in the republican platform in 2016.
I got one better than that. On Ferrell Pkwy in Virginia Beach the city came in and installed not only wheelchair ramps but walk/don't walk signs on an intersection that has no sidewalks and in fact there are no side roads. Just the intersection. There are only trees anywhere near it.

Nah, we've been through that with Carol and others on here who don't care about local politics preferring some nebulous national team concept. Local politics after all requires meeting people face to face, joining civic groups, chambers of commerce, attending various meetings and other "stuff" that requires time, expense and getting off ones fat azz and becoming involved.

It's much simpler to just sit at home and btch about my team-your team bs or write letters to the editors as fred/Paul and so many others here do.
