How did this man become elected to our United States Congress after these documented facts became known? http://www.newyork er.com/reporting/2 011/01/24/110124fa _fact_lizza?curren tPage=all  (Jun 5, 2014 | post #1)

US Politics

Tea party preps for fight with GOP 'Surrender Caucus' aft...

After locking our great country down for 16 days costing us over $24 billion, these 7 Congressman from the state of California voted to keep it closed: District 1: Doug LaMalfa District 4: Tom McClintock District 10: Jeff Denham District 39: Ed Royce District 45: John Campbell District 48: Dana Rohrabacher District 50: Duncan Hunter Everyone in our state should be aware of these Representatives (they are all in the House...not Senate) and find ones who can do what is best for our Country...not 'special interest'. There is a reason California is in great fiscal shape and these men (all were men) had a duty to represent that to the others. I don't care what political "Party" you belong to, let's start moving our country forward...leading by example and find someone in your district who knows how to support, work together, and not be afraid of "big money" threats.  (Oct 17, 2013 | post #28)

Thousands Protest Roe V. Wade Decision

Looking forward to the day when the only person who cleans, feeds, takes care of, works and pays taxes for my body will be the only one making decisions for and or about it. While I am busy doing all of this, it would be nice if I weren't threatened every single day by people who don't know or care about this body that I've lived in all my life.  (Aug 28, 2012 | post #255144)

Major League Baseball

The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of!

This is going to be a great World Series! Born and raised in San Francisco, I love the SF Giants. I admit that I didn't really know any of their names until mid September and was only more familiar with the Rangers because Nolan Ryan and sports attorney Chuck Greenberg are two of the major owners who outbid Mark Cuban (Maverick owner) at 1: am - ten hours after the auction began (August 2010) - to bail the team out of bankruptcy. After being completely mesmerized by watching how these two teams (with so many great stories on each side), went through the playoffs as "no-names...n o chance", all I can say is that they are both class acts with SO MUCH TALENT and very exciting to watch - I don't see a loss anywhere in this year's World Series...Batter-Up !  (Oct 27, 2010 | post #1)

Celebrating Fans Leave Behind Extra Messy Arrowhead

Thanks for the information on Aggie Crackhouse. Regarding your post - today is a great day for KC football fans. Nothing anyone writes here today can change that. Thanks again Jed.  (Sep 14, 2010 | post #42)

Reggie Bush forfeits 2005 Heisman Trophy

Reggie is a great player. But there was another that year, Vince Young. He was the runner up for the Heisman the year Reggie won it, Vince Young was also "All-American ", and the BCS Big 12 champions that same year. They are both good guys and I hate to see what happened today.  (Sep 14, 2010 | post #15)

Celebrating Fans Leave Behind Extra Messy Arrowhead

While I don't believe in leaving a mess for everyone else to clean up...didn't the KC Fans deserve to enjoy and really let it go? They received no respect going into last night's game; it was all San Diego and Phillip Rivers (no relation) who were going to come out the winners and lead the division. Kansas City is leading the AFC West "All By Themselves". I'm don't live anywhere near KC, but I give you big props; that was a great game and you have a damn good team.

Redskins' outspoken Portis weighs in on female NFL reporters

The players deserve some privacy. This is their locker room. The Press/Media deserve a statement for their coverage...wait for it in the "PRESS/MEDIA ROOM". The owners and NFL should set boundaries for the players: No one allowed in the locker room except players and team personnel. If the press need a statement from a particular coach/player, then arrange it...after they are cleaned-up, cooled-down, and fully dressed. www.ItsYourTime.co m  (Sep 14, 2010 | post #4)

Jets owner apologizes to female TV reporter for treatment...

Don't the players deserve a little privacy? It's a locker room...not a press room. My opinion is that there should be NO media (or anyone else) in the locker room following a game other than the team players and personnel. When they have cleaned-up and cooled-down, they can meet any request for statements in the media area. I don't understand how the NFL or the Owners tolorate this.  (Sep 14, 2010 | post #2)

Cheyenne, WY

move to wyoming

Kevin - many people...but still a small world. My Paternal side is 4th generation SF, and the Maternal 3rd. My father served in World War II, grew up in the Noe Valley-Courtland Avenue area. He was a beer bottler and later a driver for Burgemiester. My mother worked at Safeway, then retired from QFI (supermarket also). She also grew up in the Bernal Heights area. I started in Visitation Valley, and then moved on to the West Portal Area @ 17th and Vicente. I bet we have acquaintances in common? Thanks for the offer to show me around. That would be great! I hope there will be an opportunity to meet some of the other people who have posted. Although, after reading all the comments I should let everyone know that my father is Irish and my mother Mexican. 1 hot blooded temper + 1 stubborn temper = not a long lasting marriage; but they are pretty cool people. What about you...did I mention anywhere you grew up around or familiar with?  (Mar 31, 2010 | post #31)

Hi Wyoming's Finest- Okay...I get it! I went back and read all the post; from 1-29. Most of these guys are kidding, right? While some responses seem a little gruff, and 'leaning', some are pretty witty and funny. Also, sometimes people just need to express themselves and aren't trying to offend anyone...I hope. Anyway, I've really enjoyed reading the post and can't wait to visit Cheyenne...hopefully within a few months. I can't thank all of you enough for your being open and honest; that's really important when you are looking to relocate. The only thing that scares me about Cheyenne...is the wind. That can 'blow' me away (see what I've learned from you guys).  (Mar 31, 2010 | post #30)

Hi WayOut 99- thanks for your input. If you read this, can you please explain what a "buzz(s) " is? In my opinion, you seem to be one more (of 3) reasons to move to Cheyenne. It seems to me that even the mean guys are sweethearts. I will have to look into the career situation, but it may not be a problem either way. Thanks again and a Happy Easter to you also.

Thanks Kevin & Patinwy! You guys should be reps for Cheyenne. I have no children and want to slow down. Born and raised in San Francisco...well I may miss it, but I long for everything you both wrote about. Now, to see if my business will work in the area. Or, maybe I will just have to change careers. Thanks again guys. Sandy www.CivilSplit.com *Oh, I don't eat tofu...can't stand it - love Venison...it's lean and healthy. Happy Easter.  (Mar 30, 2010 | post #25)

PHawk Coffee: A cornucopia of quality coffees

Oh my GOD! This article has me longing to jump on a plane and drive to Casper for a cup of coffee. We have great coffee in this area, but the water also plays a major part. My understanding is that Casper has clean pure healthy water. With the right roast and clean water, you have a cup of heaven...just like the writer writes. How do you feel about Californians coming to visit? Thanks, Sandy www.CivilSplit.com  (Mar 29, 2010 | post #1)
