Heck with Florida laws you can shoot and kill everyone on the block and say you felt threatened. Well if they are mostly black that is.

Tell me Carol, why are all you Republicans so obsessed over Obamacare?/?Please don't try to convince me you are concerned about fellow Americans..That would be a first for your party.Pretty much the same things you idiots were saying about Social Security back then. I'll bet 90% of people on here collect that, including you.
Most people are upset since they now know they voted for a liar who told them they could keep their Doctor and their policy.

They are great dogs; I don't blame the dog, it's the owner that is a nutcase. I have no intention of hurting the dog unless he comes at me and I have to defend myself.
And, no guns here. I think he has a gun though. Seems mentally unbalanced or drugged out. I don't want to tangle with him; I just want him to keep his dog on a leash. Not much to ask.

That's not true they were just as opposed to it before that ever came up. If the law is such a bad thing then you would think that you Republicans would be all for it. Only one explanation and that is they are terrified that they will be on the wrong side of a law that helps fellow Americans. Which they will be. In time.

That's one way to get killed! But I could do so anonymously I suppose. Seems odd, one night about 10 pm an SUV went down, made a uturn, beeped his horn in front of his house, he came out and handed him something, car left. I've been noticing this quite a bit, but
doesn't necessary mean anything.

Funny ... you prove my assertions about you every time you reply, and your actually too stupid to even realize it. LOL
clearly, i did just provide support of the facts.

all you need to do is show why this occupation of the ukraine would end any different than all other post WWII occupations of the like.

but i noticed you ran away from the facts and support for them ...once again...as always...

Florida's sunshine laws are unforgiving__anything you say to law enforcement or provide to law enforcement is public record and you can be subpoenaed to testify in open court.

Opposition has shifted over the years since we had to pass it to find out what was in it.
As the people began to find out what was in it opposition remained consistent for various reason. The most vociferous opposition came when people realized they lost the Doctor and their policies.

What is cheaper in Calif, than in Pa.? Housing and rent is far more expensive, gas and electric is higher, I can't think of anything that is cheaper there than here in Virginia. The only good deal I ever got was buying the house in Tuscany Hills in Lake Elsinore it was a buyers market at that time and now it's quite a bit more valuable, But I still like to visit but not to live there. Although if we have many more winters like this I just might change my mind.
