The locations that appear with posts mean nothing.

For example, log on at Barnes and Noble and your address will show up as Austin, TX.

And that's without trying to deceive.

He's lying as usual. That price is member afternoon (when it's a 100 and eight fkn degrees in the shade) It is however a decent public course other than when it's loaded up with ancient fks and those pesky Marine wives from nearby Camp Pendleton.

Ever been out in the middle of the Mohave or Sonoran desert?
Very little air pollution, mostly natural. Very few cars, fewer trucks, no fracking.
Just nothing except your ugly solar panels.
And the transmission lines that go with them.
Better to bulldoze urban slums and build solar farms (if there was enough sun and if the inmates don't steal the panels).
Bulldozing a place like Barstow would be a far better idea.

Former Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Wednesday that Congressional Democrats are planning new legislation to render ineffective Chief Justice John Roberts’ decision on Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act, the historic 1965 legislation that guaranteed equal access to the vote for all Americans, regardless of race or ethnicity. According to The Hill, Pelosi is already considering naming the prospective bill after civil rights icon and Georgia Rep. John Lewis (D).
“It’s really a step backward, and it’s not a reflection of what’s really happening in our country in some of these places,” Pelosi said of Tuesday’s decision, in which a 5-to-4 majority ruled that Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act is unconstitutional. Section 4 established a metric for states that have discriminated racially in the past, qualifying them for Section 5, which mandates that these states receive clearance from the federal government before making changes to election law.
“I would like to see something…called the John Lewis Voting Rights Act,” she continued, saying that Congress could follow Chief Justice Roberts’ recommendation and re-write Section 4&#8242;s criteria.
Nice!

Good stuff. Stick with it Pelosi, every individual needs a voice in this country and everyone needs to be able to vote.

Mensa
Interestingly, the Spanish use of the word mensa (female) or menso (male)generally denotes someone who is crazy or stupid.
"No seas menso".... Don't be crazy. Or, "mensa, yo te dije que no lo hicieras"... stupid, I told you not to do it.

Ok fine. Yes, it was Austin, not Houston. I forgot. So, you weren't really in PA? ragging on everything about CA? Which is it PACA or CAPA?

Right, except the IG's report doesn't say progressives weren't targeted because the IG was directed to ONLY investigate conservative applicants. IG George has stated that they did find left organizations on watch lists but that they were outside the scope of their investigation.
I am sure the fact that 100% of groups with tea party or patriot was flagged indicates nothing to you.

Aunt Battie Lou lost all of her $450 in the stock market when the Twinky factory closed.
Now, she's busy speaking in code to thwart President Obama who is spending his vacation listening to her complain about how many mice fang is eating...

I find it ironic that Georgia Congressman John Lewis refutes the court's opinion that things have changed in the last 50 years since the Congressman was being beaten for fighting for his right to vote.
