<quoted text> We have a lot of that going on here. We have a lot of older lower priced homes being sold and torn down and two story $250,000 homes being built. Property values going up every time they rebuild another one. This being a military area people come and go but the houses use to not be empty that long.
Prices up 18%, homes selling fast here. There's a surplus and Gov Scott is asking what he should do with it. Hopefully he will reduce property taxes to encourage even more buying.

Fringe conservative radio host Alex Jones said this week that an effort to avert a U.S. attack on Syria with diplomacy was actually a United Nations plot for the extinction of the human race, which would be replaced by “globalists” like President Barack Obama who would become cyborgs by using “life-extension technologies.”

i know i probably shouldn't put that out there because one of these nutjobs will grab hold of it and try to beat us to death with it just like they're doing with every other excuse they can think of for becoming peace loving hippies.

put down that bong you conservative hippies and act like you want every Muslim in the world to be dead just like you did last week!

<quoted text>"Today - after 11 days in September -- President Obama secured his place in history once again.
This is "peace through strength". This is Smart Power. On the eve of the 12th Anniversary of 9/11, President Obama has demonstrated that the lessons of the past wars have been learned.
The President's threat of war; his commitment to striking back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has brought the Syrian and the Russian presidents to the negotiating table. Al-Assad has now admitted that he has chemical weapons and he has agreed to never use them again. Mind you, no missiles have been fired -- and yet this is the solution we sought.
We have won.
More, this was a bipartisan effort for peace.
Forget the Tea Party fanatics. They would burn their own house down if they could.
But the people who are serious about governing worked together to bring about this peaceful solution. Props should go to Speaker John Boehner and Senator John McCain -- both put their country ahead of their own short-term political lives. They took the heat; they joined the president in condemning chemical weapons -- and they all brought about a resolution to this crisis."
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brian-keane/lad...
So, if American bi-partisanship and international cooperation can work to get a military dictator to surrender his chemical weapons to international United Nations control, then why is it so hard for Republicans to admit working with President Obama on immigration reform, making Obamacare better, jobs creation, and climate change at home is much easier then causing crises over the national debt, whining about U S Defense cuts that even the Pentagon approves of in a world where the U S is no longer at war in Iraq or Afghanistan,?

Obama is stronger now than ever. A good leader is not arrogant. He must be capable of changing his direction when circumstances change and Obama has proven he is a true leader. He will look like a miracle worker if the Putin plan works. If it fails, he will be praised for leaving no stone unturned toward a peaceful resolution.
Yep. He's got Putin on the world stage, scrambling to show he's just as good as Obama.

Let's see if he can keep up!

now that it looks like we won't be attacking Syria how long do you think it will be before the right wing media starts asking why we didn't attack Syria?
LOL! Well, you have to wait for them to crow how they were victorious and influenced Obama to make the 'right' choice.

And once they get tired of their self congratulatory back slapping, then they'll get on that bandwagon!

They screamed against a strike against Syria; now that it may not be necessary; they are screaming still. What are they screaming about? Do they want war or do they not? They don't know. Now the fat junkie Limbaugh is implying that the US used chemical weapons; and the resident dittoheads love that stuff. What stupid, stupid people, it's mind blowing.
Send them all to the Gulags!!
Why was a strike on Syria necessary and then not necessary?

What has changed?
