I hate to say it, but he needed to own up to this one. When our guys mess up we need to hold their feet to the fire. In a number of failing cities, he appointed emergency managers. Flints manager switched water source from Detroit to the flint river to save money. That’s fine until we found the pipes were leaching lead into the water. If the would have taken immediate steps to fix it, We would probably not have quite the backlash. But they sat on it for months and tried to hide it. Apologizing and owning up is about the only thing he can do and its not enough. Hate to say it but he needs to resign. Covering up the poisoning of an entire city is inexcusable.
No, the governor does not need to resign, but it is good to see that he is willing to take charge of this. Now if the Dems would just own up to generations of poor leadership in Flint that led to this financial situation and never replacing the lead pipes to begin with. Perhaps Obama could resign for his EPA knowing about this so long and doing nothing?
The republican governor is standing up like an honorable man and trying to do the right thing.
The Democrat Mayor of Flint is the first one that should have stood up and admitted that it was his first responsibility to avoid this.
Also, Obama's EPA holds a large majority of responsibility.
Before jumping to conclusions, everyone should read this: It might just open a few eyes and brain cells...

Rehab not rehabilitate. Sorry.

I had a relative union boss say to me “Workers should share in the success of the company.” I asked “Should you share in the failure of the company as well?” Best answer I could get from that was “Its not the employees fault if they can’t run their business.” He says it is the employers responsibility to pay for rehabilitate if a person is found to be under the influence while on the job and it is the employers fault if they don’t realize the person is a drug addict within the first ninety days. I could go on but nobody likes to read a long winded rant.
Just said the same thing but not nearly as coherently. I would like or give a thumbs up if I could. They should have something like that on here.

Now is the time for Libertarians. They have four years. No more its the last second and we need to support anyone to get Obama out. We are a Christian nation. But not everyone is. Faith should guide you. But if you can’t argue your point with more than “its in the Bible” then it won’t fly. We as Christians should promote our ideals. But we can’t force it. That only breeds resentment. Do good. Be good. Let people see your faith. They will come to you.
As far as same sex marriage goes, I think government should have nothing to do with marriage. Allow anyone to be equal legally. I don’t want the government involved in my holy union. Priest should not bestow legal status. Mayors should not bestow the lords blessings.
Abortion I can argue should be illegal. I consider it murder just the same as killing a teenager.
Small government, and individual liberty are winning ideas. I don’t know anyone that is against a financially solvent country. Well maybe a few but they live in Washington D.C.
It is too late for the GOP. I voted for Mitt. But if libertarians can field a strong candidate, I am all in. I know this will mean a split ticket and that will keep dems in till 2020 at least. But the only other option is voting for George NWO Bush, his son, John McCain, or another RINO. Sorry I am rambling. Lots of thoughts rolling around in the ole noggin. Any thoughts.

I am a Christian. I am a conservative. No I am not encinom! Ha ha. Now that disclosure is out of the way. I did not see what in Genesis that you posted would not allow for the possibility of evolution. Yes he created all things. Could he not also foresee an ever changing world filled with ice ages and cataclysms. Could he not have given his creations the ability to survive and carry on? I see evolution as more credit to His magnificence! Not that he needs it from lowely little me. We have seen it in our lives. My Scottish terrier, Winston, did not exist as a breed but for only a few hundred years. And no I have not been deceived. Because God is my lord and Jesus is my savior. When I reach those gates, and am asked the all important question, I will answer yes! And there will be no lie in my heart. God bless!

Anyone else notice the number of stories on Yahoo lately about “right wing extremist”?
ruby ridge, Nazis in the army, okc bombing, Anders Brevic, and a couple others I can’t remember off the top of my head.

Sorry, forgot to say stories were featured on Yahoo.

Off topic, has anyone noticed that there has been about five stories about “right wing extremists”? One on Nazis in the army, ruby ridge, Anders brevic, and a couple others I don’t remember off the top of my head. Something doesn’t seem right. Smells like a lead in.
