Sassy, where is your formal apology for posting a leftist fabricated news story about the Sandy Hook parent being heckled? I was listening to Fox and heard the story. I then searched for the link and found it on one of your favorite sources, yahoo. The entire video shows that the man ask for a response from the people and waited for one. Then the lawmaker chastised them for answering.

We are waiting for your apology and admission that your "reliable news sources" are not always so.
She will never admit being wrong. Her yahoo and rawstory links are about as reliable as the Enquiror

By that are you referring to The National Enquirer? The initial - and for a time only - publication that correctly reported John Edward's illegitimate child?

What?!?! A governor actually wanting to return the people's money to those who earned it? Plus, a Republican governor wanting to utilize money already set aside for infrastructure???

Texas Governor Rick Perry on Tuesday called for returning excess tax money to taxpayers and tapping the state's rainy-day fund for water and transportation infrastructure.

Perry, 62, the longest-serving governor in the nation at just over 12 years, touted the success of Texas in creating jobs and luring companies to the state.

The Republican called for changing the constitution of the state, the nation's second most populous, to allow the return of tax money to the people who paid it when the state brings in more than needed.

"We've never bought into the notion that if you collect more, you need to spend more," Perry said

NDAA Nullification: Tennessee Bills Propose Kidnapping Charges for Federal Agents

State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the National Defense Authorization Act continues to grow, rapidly emerging as a nationwide movement.

The Tennessee legislature will consider HB1629 and SB2669 in the 2012 session. The legislation would effectively nullify the detention provisions in the NDAA and would also require federal agents making an arrest in the Volunteer State for any reason to first obtain written permission from the county sheriff.

This bill declares that any federal law purporting to require local or state law enforcement agencies to act at the direction of the federal government or the United States military is beyond the authority granted to the federal government pursuant to the United States Constitution, is not recognized by this state, is specifically rejected by this state and is declared to be invalid in this state. This bill further declares that any federal law purporting to give federal agents or employees, including any members of the United States military, the authority of any state or local law enforcement agency of this state, without the express permission of this state, is beyond the authority granted to the federal government pursuant to the United States Constitution, is not recognized by this state, is specifically rejected by this state, and is declared to be invalid in this state.

The act takes aim at indefinite detention provisions in the NDAA. Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey called language in the NDAA vague and overbroad, pointing out that Americans should never simply trust in the good intentions and moral clarity of the president or federal judges to protect their rights.

The Tennessee bill also “makes it a Class E felony for any official, agent, or employee of the United States government to enforce or attempt to enforce any federal law, order, rule or regulation that is beyond the authority granted to the federal government pursuant to the United States Constitution,” and includes provisions for kidnapping charges if a federal agent were to detain a U.S. citizen in Tennessee under the NDAA.

The U.S.S. Gardian runs aground on a reef in the waters off P.I. She will have to be cut up. The skipper will be discharged. She was using a digital chart provided by "National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency". Which showed the reef some 8 nautical away.
Back in 2000' the U.S.S. LaMoure County ran into South America itself(bad weather, fog, ect.)her skipper was discharged. The ship was so badly damaged she was used as target pratice. She was using a chart provided by the same agency.
The agency has since made 2 corrections.
I believe this agency should do a complete edit of all the charts, or do our ships have to find the errors themselves.
Am I asking to much?

No really, I voted for Kennedy and Clinton the second time only. WHY? because he switched directions and became a moderate which is where the country should be. When one group or the other move the ball too far to the right (reagan) or too far to the left (obama), it hurts the entire country as a whole. I know you want to see Gay marriage, etc. It is fine with me. They have to answer to GOD not me. But if one of the sob puts his hand on me, I'll break it off. Understand. NOOOOOOO NO NOOO we don't want to get into this! I can almost bet you never voted for a repub. because you are too far liberal.
If you long to live somewhere that homosexuality is actually illegal, perhaps you should move to those more moral countries like Iran or Uganda.

I am of a sect by myself, as far as I know.
-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Ezra Stiles Ely (June 25, 1819), quoted from Dickinson W Adams, ed, The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Second Series (Princeton University Press, 1983; note that attributions saying "Ezra Stiles, president of Yale University (June 25, 1819)" are incorrect, as that Ezra Stiles died in 1795)

Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong.
-- Thomas Jefferson, considering three different explanations for why sea shells would be found at higher elevations than one should reasonably expect an ocean to have existed, in Notes on the State of Virginia

What all agree upon is probably right; what no two agree in most probably is wrong.
