Currently 94 dry desert degrees in Temecula.
Why don't you hop in the old Honda and go knock some balls around, the course is probably empty.
Let me splain this to you Trixie.

For $99 per year, you get three free rounds and discounts on all other rounds. That yields the $23 rate as opposed to a normal $29 rate.

Memberships that allow free golf at any time are much more expensive.

Don't know where the thermometer you reference is located, but in the shade at the Galt mansion the temperature is 84 dry degrees.

After that, it was a cinch.

That first sentence was a handy bit of nonsense to avoid comparing the viewpoints of civil rights leaders of that time. In fact it is pure garbage.
Malcom X clearly stated his viewpoint
"The idea of a mass of blacks marching on Washington was originally the brainchild of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters’ A. Philip Randolph. For twenty or more years the March on Washington idea had floated around among Negroes. And, spontaneously, suddenly now, that idea caught on.
This was a national bitterness; militant, unorganized, and leaderless. Predominantly, it was young Negroes, defiant of whatever might be the consequences, sick and tired of the black man’s neck under the white man’s heel.
The White House speedily invited in the major civil rights Negro “leaders.” They were asked to stop the planned March. They truthfully said they hadn’t begun it, they had no control over it–the idea was national, spontaneous, unorganized, and leaderless. In other words, it was a black powder keg.
The next scene was the “big six” civil rights Negro “leaders” meeting in New York City with the white head of a big philanthropic agency. They were told that their money–wrangling in public was damaging their image. And a reported $800,000 was donated to a United Civil Rights Leadership council that was quickly organized by the “big six.”
Now, what had instantly achieved black unity? The white man’s money. What string was attached to the money? Advice. Not only was there this donation, but another comparable sum was promised, for sometime later on, after the March... obviously if all went well.
The original “angry” March on Washington was now about to be entirely changed.
Yes, I was there. I observed that circus. Who ever heard of angry revolutionists all harmonizing “We Shall Overcome...Suum Day...” while tripping and swaying along arm-in-arm with the very people they were supposed to be angrily revolting against? Who ever heard of angry revolutionists swinging their bare feet together with their oppressor in lily-pad park pools, with gospels and guitars and “I Have A Dream” speeches?
And the black masses in America were–and still are–having a nightmare."
The Autobiography of Malcolm X
You are truly ignorant! Malcolm X was from the north, MLK was from the South. 2 different demographics of 2 different extremes! Malcolm X had the viewpoint of free man. MLK's viewpoint was that of a man that truly felt oppression. The part of unity, if you find hard to see the message behind it, it only clarifies where you mind is today! Malcolm X said"by any means necessary"meaning he'd died for what he believed in. He died by the hands of his religion, MLK died for what he truly believed in, which eventually brought forth the change he dreamed of. Now again, weigh that on you scales of liberty!

Ever since the Magic Negro's unemployment numbers appeared, SS Disability Claims have gone through the roof.

When it comes to dealing with the Magic Negro, fighting fire with fire and corruption with corruption enters into a welcomed grey area.

Expect tax cheating to skyrocket, too, in the ensuing years of this dark period.

This is all reminiscent of declining Socialist countries in Europe. When Socialism began to creep in, money began to hide and tax-cheating went through the roof. Look at Greece and Italy as prime examples. The America that used to be has sunk below the horizon. It is hiding from the Magic Negro.

Ecuador Scraps Trade Pact Over U.S.

Threats in Snowden Case

Ecuador, the South American nation considering an asylum request from fugitive U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, renounced its U.S. trade benefits today, saying they were being used as “blackmail.”

“Ecuador doesn’t accept pressure or threats from anyone and doesn’t barter its principles and sovereignty or submit to mercantile interests,” President Rafael Correa said today in a speech in the central province of Los Rios. What Snowden revealed “is a terrible case of massive espionage, both nationally and internationally that clearly threatens the right to intimacy and the sovereignty of states.”

The announcement comes a day after U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he would lead the effort to block renewal of trade preferences for Ecuador if it granted Snowden asylum. The Andean nation has been lobbying the U.S. congress to renew the preferences, known as ATPDEA, which are due to expire next month.

In the end who ended up being the war monger? Did Goldwater manufacture the Tonkin Gulf Incident to justify escalating VN into a full scale war?
The Gulf of Tonkin incident (or the USS Maddox incident) is the name given to two separate confrontations involving North Vietnam and the United States in the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. On August 2, 1964, the destroyer USS Maddox, while performing a signals intelligence patrol as part of DESOTO operations, engaged three North Vietnamese Navy torpedo boats of the 135th Torpedo Squadron. A sea battle resulted, in which the Maddox expended over two hundred and eighty 3-inch and 5-inch shells, and in which four USN F-8 Crusader jet fighter bombers strafed the torpedo boats. One US aircraft was damaged, one 14.5 mm round hit the destroyer, three North Vietnamese torpedo boats were damaged, and four North Vietnamese sailors were killed and six were wounded; there were no U.S. casualties.

The second Tonkin Gulf incident was originally claimed by the U.S. National Security Agency to have occurred on August 4, 1964, as another sea battle, but instead may have involved "Tonkin Ghosts" (false radar images) and not actual NVN torpedo boat attacks.

Republican divisions continue ...?

Republicans issued varying reactions to Wednesday’s historic Supreme Court decisions on gay marriage, highlighting the party’s challenge in navigating an issue that has growing public support but remains deeply unpopular within much of the GOP.

As Democrats rushed to hail the rulings striking down the Defense of Marriage Act and dismissing a challenge to California’s ban on same-sex marriages, most Republicans expressed their continued dismay toward the idea of gays and lesbians marrying.

“While I am obviously disappointed in the ruling, it is always critical that we protect our system of checks and balances,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement following the ruling. He added that it was his “hope that states will define marriage as the union between one man and one woman.”

"While I am obviously disappointed in the ruling, it is always critical that we protect our system of checks and balances," said House Speaker John Boehner, seen in this June 6 file photo.

(Boehner led the House GOP in spending millions – now, unsuccessfully – on defending DOMA before the high court after President Barack Obama announce his administration would no longer defend the 1996 law in court.)

Many Republicans stayed silent but more decried the Supreme Court’s ruling in the starkest of terms.

Conservative firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., added:“Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted.”

Rep. Tim Walberg, R-Mich., warned the ruling put “society itself … at risk.”

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a potential contender for the GOP presidential nod in 2016, expressed his concern that the proliferation of same-sex marriage would erode “traditional” marriage.

“I would tell people who are for traditional marriage: the battle is lost at the federal level; concentrate on your state,” he said on Glenn Beck’s radio show.
