Sales

AT & T goes door to door for sales

It's a law in my town, cowboy. Soliciting without a permit or in defiance of a No Soliciting sign will get you a nice fine: http://www.cor.net /WorkArea/Download Asset.aspx?id=4334 The local PD asks us to report solicitors as many have records that prevent them from getting "real" jobs.  (Dec 23, 2009 | post #41)

Richardson HOA's run the town

Do you mean HOAs proper or the neighborhood associations in general? I would agree that that a NA is a stepping stone to city office, but not that the NA voting is particularly useful in getting elected. I could be wrong.  (May 25, 2009 | post #2)

democrats who will you vote for in primary:

I am not a Dem but I would definitely choose Obama. I don't want to listen to another 4/8 yrs of rabid, Rush-fueled rightwingers howling about another Clinton.  (Feb 18, 2008 | post #2)

Straight A Student Suspended for Long Hair

What is the hair length requirement for girls? Is there some kind of minimum. Either we have gender equality or we don't.  (Feb 12, 2008 | post #99)

Grand Prairie to use red-light cameras

Fixing potholes does not generate revenue. I, like Evonna, lived in Deutschland for a few years and the cameras really did their job. Based on my unscientific observations around town, a bunch of type-A cretins in fullsize trucks and cellphone-yapping soccer moms in SUVs should be receiving photographic lovenotes from the camera people any time now...  (Feb 5, 2008 | post #3)

Speeding ticket on 75

Maybe the cop couldn't issue a ticket for being obnoxious, so settled on some others? Just guessing here.  (Feb 5, 2008 | post #5)

Conflicting data on crime, immigration presented at legis...

The problem is that their is a national teat available to suck. If there were no giveaways, then the "problem " of illegal immigration goes away. Stop taxing the sheeple for redistribution to other sheeple and then no sheep will care what the other sheep is doing.  (Feb 4, 2008 | post #3)

Smoking ban battle on city council horizon

Smokers will continue to lose ground because they are dying, and because, demographically and collectively, they are at the bottom of the gene pool. Check out education, income, health, and whatever other status you might want for smokers v. nonsmokers. See who's losing? Right. And don't EVEN get me started on the amount of cigarette pack litter I pick up in my neighborhood. When I was in the army we'd be policing (ie, picking up) litter like cigarette butts, and the smoking morons would throw down their butts AND THEN PICK THEM BACK UP. Holy crap. It was amazing. Two guys at work smoke so much and so frequently that they have gone beyond normal cigarette stink into that fetid, rancid, rotting-on-the-ins ide smell. I have seen people recoil from the vapors when talking to them. It's that bad. If smokers were more aware and considerate of the affect of their habit on others then perhaps they wouldn't suffer ghettoization.  (Feb 4, 2008 | post #41)

Stealing the retired military guys flag

Only in Bedford. But then again I don't worship the flag any more than I worship the national seal, motto, etc.  (Feb 4, 2008 | post #2)

Top Ten Signs That Your An Insane Christian

When jesus people knock on my door, I always tell them they can come in if *they* know more about their theology than *I *know about their theology. They usually freak at that point.  (Feb 4, 2008 | post #5)
