No, seemed pretty straightforward to me. What problems did you have?  (Jun 12, 2008 | post #8483)

So, it's not dead, but I don't know how long this community can be self-sustaining either... Time will tell.  (Jun 12, 2008 | post #8475)

Redding School Paper Dropped After Flag-Burning Photo

You are right about the voting thing, that is in the constitution, and I stand corrected. What I meant was the bill of rights. The drinking thing is actually not a federal law per se. The DOT, back in the 70's (or early 80's) said that they would not give funding for highway projects to the states if they did not raise their minimum drinking age to twenty-one. There is actually NO federal law that says you cannot drink until twenty one... Actually I believe that Wisconsin was one of the last to actually change their drinking laws, and every once in a while you will hear about a state mulling over the possibility of lowering their minimum drinking age back to eighteen. It inevitably fails as they are more interested in recieving funds from the federal government for highway projects than allowing some eighteen year olds to get drunk legally. Actually an interesting factoid: military bases are not REQUIRED to abide by these rules, and when I was stationed at Ft Bliss (nearly 10 years ago, so things might have changed) they allowed 18 year olds to buy alcohol at the Class 6 (Army liquor store). The rationale was that the soldiers would just be going down to Mexico to get drunk anyway, so they figured if there are going to be drunk soldiers it would probably be a good idea to keep them out of a Mexican jail.  (Jun 12, 2008 | post #154)

Say Good-bye to Topix

I actually LIKE that picture and plan to keep it up... As far as being a soldier, I've mentioned it several times when it pertained to the conversation, or used it as a means to reinforce a point I was trying to make, HOWEVER... There is NO way you could extrapolate my being a soldier from the HAWAIIAN shirt I was wearing. When I left the Army I was still wearing BDU's (had not yet fully switched to ACU's), but it is pretty clear that what I am wearing is not in any way, shape, or form related to the military. I actually believe that wearing your service on your sleeve, much like your religion, is pretty low class.  (Jun 12, 2008 | post #40)

Should I Move Back To Sacramento, Ca

Bwa ha ha. Actually I am the LAST person who should be laughing because I know EXACTLY the pain you are in. We moved to Augusta, GA about 10 months ago, and this place is the shits. I agree with you completely it SHOULD be cold when it rains, however in this topsy turvey part of the country it is regularly in the 90s and pouring outside.... A disconcerting event to say the least. Also, I agree with you, there are quite a few "bible thumpers" that I have run into, but I was expecting this, as this is Southern Baptist country, and you can't spell hypocrite without southern baptist it seems. All of that being said Sacramento, in my humble opinion is (was? with the recent crash in prices?) too expensive for what you got. If you are looking to move, want a similar type of city, but without the backwater feeling might I suggest Seattle? If you can get past the rain (I consider it more of a misting myself) it is actually a pretty, cosmopolitan metropolis. There are people from EVERY walk of life, most cultures are well represented there, and it is (my belief anyway) a much more beautiful city than Sac. Needless to say, it is on our short list of places to retire to when the wife gets done with the army thing.  (Jun 12, 2008 | post #2)

The constitution does not set minimum age limits on your rights. As adults we are given more responsibilities and freedoms, but the basic rights are there from birth. The GOVERNMENT cannot abridge any of your rights... parents/teachers can however.  (Jun 11, 2008 | post #145)

Why was Jimmy kicked out of the military?

How about that the military is not a one size fits all organization. Some people do VERY well in the military, others do not. If the originator of this post had spent ANY time in uniform he would have already known this.  (Jun 11, 2008 | post #2)

Elk Grove Drivers Take Advantage of 46 Cent Gas Mistake

I'm getting ready to leave for Atlanta in a few mintues, so I don't have time to go into detail, but the claims and explanations that the website uses are a crock.  (Jun 11, 2008 | post #139)

Currently living in Evans, GA

There's nothing to do here in Augusta, but it's only 2 hours to Atlanta, Savannah, or Charleston.

I live near Augusta. If you have never lived in the south it's a TOTALLY different world. I would suggest visiting just to see what the country would be like if the "red states" really took over. Undereducation, poverty, and racism are not pretty things.
