<quoted text>I was here when it was legal to drink while driving__and did__daily almost. Eighteen year olds could drink then too and there were fewer roadway KIA's than there are now__per capita. Lotsa bad injuries though.
I was here when cocaine was cool but a roach would get you jailtime.
I missed the co**fighting which was headquartered in Tangelo but widespread and overlooked mostly as illegal gambling by the local law enforcement folks__unless one was black and winning.
I was here when Kissimmee was really a cowtown and the bars in Holly Hill stayed opened til 4AM. I was here for Brassies in Cocoa, the Daytona Eastern Airlines 24 hr race, the Kahler Plaza, nickle night, Sullivans Trailway, I remember when the Arnold Palmer Classic was at Rio Pinar instead of Bay Hill.
I'm a seasoned veteran of Central Florida__and if you ever lie to me I'll know it instantly.
Which means he is an old fool!!!!!

So, you are really arguing here that a NBA team who is on the verge of making the playoffs to earn millions in post season revenue will waste money on a side show to boost ticket sales for a game or two?
This is how stupid you are, Eed.
3 of the 4 potential playoff opponents in the first round have active centers scoring over 10 points a game & are instrumental in their offenses.
Plus the Nets have been a center short since the injury to their star center.
So it makes sense to get a big man to play defense against these other teams.
Bwhahahahahaha!!!!

California
* The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor's dog, then bites the Governor.
* The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie"Bambi" and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.
* He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the
Coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.
* He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.
* The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.
* The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.
* The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.
* The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.
* The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training on the nature of coyotes.
* PETA protests the
Coyote's' relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.
TEXAS
* The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.
* The buzzards eat the dead coyote.
And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.

I believe that the dimwit hypocrite Woodidiot is referring to the spelling of the word (censured) rather than the intent of the statement in which I believe you might have meant to use the word censor.

You see that is all they have,... but the real funny part is that their grammar and word usage is no better than any others in topix. When the dimwit cannot counter information presented they attempt to split hairs on things like grammar, punctuation and spelling. That's why I point out their hypocrisy when they make the same mistakes that they accuse others of.

First Lady requires more than twenty attendants
Author
By Dr. Paul L. Williams (Bio and Archives) Tuesday, July 7, 2009
By the staff of thelastcrusade
Update: First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants
“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it”
—Albert Einstein
“In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said.“See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,“ Michelle Obama
No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.
How things have changed! If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:
$172,2000 - Sher, Susan (CHIEF OF STAFF)
$140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C.(DEPUTY ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF POLICY AND PROJECTS FOR THE FIRST LADY)
$113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND WHITE HOUSE SOCIAL SECRETARY)
$102,000 - Johnston, Camille Y.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE FIRST LADY)
Winter, Melissa E.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF TO THE FIRST LADY)
$90,000 - Medina, David S.(DEPUTY CHIEF OF STAFF TO THE FIRST LADY)
$84,000 - Lelyveld, Catherine M.(DIRECTOR AND PRESS SECRETARY TO THE FIRST LADY)
$75,000 - Starkey, Frances M.(DIRECTOR OF SCHEDULING AND ADVANCE FOR THE FIRST LADY)
$70,000 - Sanders, Trooper (DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF POLICY AND PROJECTS FOR THE FIRST LADY)
$65,000 - Burnough, Erinn J.(DEPUTY DIRECTOR AND DEPUTY SOCIAL SECRETARY)
Reinstein, Joseph B.(DEPUTY DIRECTOR AND DEPUTY SOCIAL SECRETARY)
$62,000 - Goodman, Jennifer R.(DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF SCHEDULING AND EVENTS COORDINATOR FOR THE FIRST LADY)
$60,000 - Fitts, Alan O.(DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF ADVANCE AND TRIP DIRECTOR FOR THE FIRST LADY)
Lewis, Dana M.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT AND PERSONAL AIDE TO THE FIRST LADY)
$52,500 - Mustaphi, Semonti M.(ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR AND DEPUTY PRESS SECRETARY TO THE FIRST LADY)
$50,000 - Jarvis, Kristen E.(SPECIAL ASSISTANT FOR SCHEDULING AND TRAVELING AIDE TO THE FIRST LADY)
$45,000 - Lechtenberg, Tyler A.(ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF CORRESPONDENCE FOR THE FIRST LADY)
Tubman, Samantha (DEPUTY ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR,SOCIAL OFFICE)
$40,000 - Boswell, Joseph J.(EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT TO THE CHIEF OF STAFF TO THE FIRST LADY)
$36,000 - Armbruster, Sally M.(STAFF ASSISTANT TO THE SOCIAL SECRETARY)
Bookey, Natalie (STAFF ASSISTANT)
Jackson, Deilia A.(DEPUTY ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF CORRESPONDENCE FOR THE FIRST LADY)
Do something useful duhmdem, and research this for us-the US tax payers....cause it sounds like we need to CUT, CUT and CUT some "jawbs" ourselves, like about 20 -21 CUTS, if dis here Bullchit is true, cause this is WORKING CLASS America-NOT fckn parliament!
So what were we paying for the previous First lady? Just out of curiousity.
