Government shutdown

What so many people don't seem to be able to understand is that doing away with politics in this country, or even any type of overhaul, isn't going to happen and the majority of the reason is the tried and true 'good ole boy network'. As long as you have folks who support someone who is dishonest, or even honest, those folks will make it into and stay in office regardless. I'm not trying to start a fight about Obama but he is a Manchurian Candidate. He did NOT get the popular vote in some states that he got the electoral college vote in. That's wrong but it happens, it's always happened and will always happen as long as there are dishonest people.  (Oct 5, 2013 | post #18)

known child molester at local swimming hole rose hole

Actually it depends on the terms of his being on the list, probation or parole. Sometimes they're allowed to be around kids under 18 IF there are other adults around. Call the SO, ask to speak to the person who's over the sex offenders for the county and ask him. You can also call his PO, if he has one. The info is a matter of public record so they can tell you about it.  (Jun 17, 2013 | post #5)

disgusted

I'm Christian and it's not hard for me to say I'm sorry but it used to be. Pride is exactly the problem for the most part. Nobody wants to feel that somebody else may see them as 'not as good as' the next person. However, Christians are not the only ones who have this 'problem'. A lot of people are raised to think they're better than others and just don't know how to acknowledge when they're wrong. Also, the person may not see where they've done any wrong. Discuss it with the person if possible. If not, well, there's not really a lot you can do but if you're a Christian and you pray, then pray for that person. Also look at the situation and make sure you're not overreacting. A lot of us tend to do that, too. It may not be as big a deal as it appears right now. Don't let the other person get you down regardless of the situation or the outcome.  (Oct 8, 2012 | post #4)

Growing potatoes vertically.

I grew mine is bags and in large pots. I put some dirt, the potatoes and covered them. When the plants got about 6" tall, I covered about 4" of plant and kept doing that until I had about 4 "layers" of dirt. Worked real well.  (Jul 31, 2012 | post #7)

Bowling alley in Mountain View

The city did not refuse us the rezoning or any building permits. The rezoning was pending another city council meeting after we presented a complete prospectus for the bowling alley. Then we got burned out and have had to put everything aside while rebuilding. Part of the property on 66 is residential and part is commercial. We want the residential rezoned for additional parking. Those living nearby don't want the additional noise and traffic. Some folks tried to say that the little bridge in front of the old T.D.'s building would create a bottleneck in the case of an emergency while at the same time not considering that emergencies actually take place beyond that point all the time and there's not a problem with that little bridge. I don't know what the future holds but as far as I know it's still in the plans but we just don't know when.  (Jun 15, 2012 | post #14)

disabled people going to college

Not all people with challenges get a government check. Have you also taken into consideration that disability checks can be contingent with your income? A large amount of disability cuts off with a paycheck. Maybe the person getting a check is using that money to start a business but feels that college courses are necessary for the success of the business. Granted there are those who take advantage of any system, but it will come back on them one day. It'll hurt when their misdeeds bite back. Most of us need to spend more time getting our own good grades and not worry about whether the next person is cheating. Hard to do sometimes, I admit.  (May 25, 2012 | post #10)

I guess I'll just have to wait and watch what happens. As it stands, I'm not now, never have been and probably never will be in the position to help anything economically except support local businesses and I don't mean Wal-Mart. I'm glad we can agree to disagree. Maybe I'm more uneducated about economics than I am disagreeable. ;-)  (Apr 9, 2012 | post #44)

Enact a law to force dog owners of Stone County to contro...

That's a bit harsh. Would you honestly feel that way if it were your dog and you knew the dog to be safe, but the property owner didn't? Shoot now and ask questions later. Just assume the dog is a danger?  (Apr 9, 2012 | post #9)

civil rights in mtn view

Jules, thanks for just chatting. I do like good conversation and not arguing. I learn a lot when I'm not being screamed at. I like "Folk Music Capital of the World." Any mountain community can be 'Your place in the mountains' but only one can be FMCW. My opinion. As far as the area being hyper-religious, I've never felt that way but since I'm a regular church attendee, maybe I wouldn't. Hyper-political, I do agree with. I got involved in a group 3 years ago when it formed. It was tauted as being patriotic and we were supposed to be able to learn about the voting process, what different stuff means, the constitution, etc., etc. But it turned into a 'disaster preparedness' and campaign gathering for a local candidate. The things they did weren't bad by any means but it wasn't what I was needing/wanting to go for. I didn't have the money to make phone calls and go out of town constantly to rallies, etc. I know a lot of people who're in the group and hear that it's changed a LOT. Apparently I wasn't the only one complaining about some of the goings on, according to the 'higher ups'. I just haven't started going back. Part of the experience bit me in the hiney and it still stings. The older I get the more political I see things are. It doesn't matter what you belong to there are officers, deacons, elders, representatives that have to be elected to represent a group. Therein lie power struggles and p'ing contests and that's where it gets ugly. Anyway, yes I do see this area as hyper-political. I'd like to see MV be able to sustain itself. Unfortunately there's a lot here that'll cause it to, most likely, not ever make it. That's a whole other subject and one that'll cause a LOT of nasty stuff if I start posting my opinion so I won't.  (Apr 9, 2012 | post #42)
