    If they do then my trip to the Cards/Sea-Hawks game is off. My friends and I go to one Cards game each year and this year the Sea-Hawks date was perfect for everyone and the weather. I buy used tickets so the NFL already has their money… this year. Sorry to all of the concession folks at the game.

    I don’t normally watch a lot of Football. If the home team is playing well and I am not busy I will flip it on free TV.
    My friends and I usually go to one home game. We love the tailgating and the games are a lot of fun.

    We were planning on going to the Cards/SeaHawks game, already counting who is going and planning a menu for the tailgating.

    That plan is in major jeopardy. We will see what happens tomorrow and how the NFL responds to this.

    Plus I still have NASCAR I can go to again. You can bet no one there will disrespect the Flag or the National Anthem.

    “Historically, the golden rule of Mexico’s foreign policy has been to avoid being seen as taking sides in U.S. politics; hence the two invitations, even though Mexico favors Hillary Clinton’s position on a path to citizenship for migrants.”

    But they don’t favor immigration to their own country.

    And what kind of messed up position is it that a Government would favor their citizens immigrating to another country?

    Hold on, they were watching the video’s on line ‘not knowing until nine o’clock last night that it was their loved one they were looking at’

    So watching them is okay until they learn it is someone they know and then all of the sudden putting it online is wrong?

    Well, I think I know where I am going on vacation! I have always wanted to see Great Britain and supporting them by spending some money in their Country sounds like a plan.

    I do live in Arizona. I do vote. I will be voting for Dr. Ward. John McCain has had his time to ‘fix it’ and has only made things worse.

    “For me to put back into my economy, I need more money in my pockets,” she added.

    She doesn’t understand. To put back into the economy you have to add value through your labor. If she wants more money in her pockets she needs to work more or do a job that adds more value. Getting paid more than what your labor is worth is not adding to the economy. This is similar to the Legislators who believe that giving money to people stimulates the economy because they have ‘money in their pockets to spend’.

    The original post of this article is inaccurate. If the videos are from Tucson then the part that reads ‘forcing people to exit at Shea and Palisades’ has nothing to do with Tucson. They are about 2 hours apart.
    I believe these are two different instances. I guess there are jerks everywhere. :)

    Goodness, the police officers were so polite. Even if it had been a mistake (it wasn’t) who could complain?
    And good for her for being polite too. That’s how it should be.
    It’s too bad that after the fact anyone is trying to make something of it.

    The people who made the video lack perspective. There are at least two scenes where we see the runners from the front but the track turns to the left (their right) behind them. This includes the poor schooling scene as well as the early dead end scene. Ironic.

    To the lady in the video who wanted her kids to dream. Under socialism that is all they will have. Unless they are part of the ruling class they will have virtually no opportunity to improve their economic condition in life. Once they realize they cannot get ahead they will stop dreaming as well.

    That’s so funny. I was thinking the same thing as I was reading this and the first comment I read is yours. The problem is Mike is too smart to go into politics.

    So when they are done for the day do they run off to their ‘safe zone’ at college so they don’t have to be afraid of listening to opposing viewpoints?

    I was disappointed in the questions. “Who was the oldest to sign?” “What word is spelled wrong?” Really?

    I did get the important ones right.

    What an interestinng twist I had not thought of. I guess if we want to be equal then, yes, they should register.

    I don’t think we should lower the standards for combat or other activities to make it easier for women (or men) to qualify. Actually, as the size of our forces get smaller it would make sense to raise the standards to keep the very best.

    God Bless everyone who has served or is currently serving. Thank you for keepig me safe.

    I think it is an invasion of privacy. Why can’t the AP respect his wishes to not be known? If you want to tell everyone you won, great, but if you don’t and try not to, the AP files a ‘public records request’. Sad. If I won, which is unlikely because I don’t play much unless it is a BIG jackpot, I would want to also remain anonymouns. But no! We must know is name, we must know where he lives and how big his house is and how much it cost. Leave them alone! That kind of winnings has its own trappings.. publicity only adds to it.

    Good luck Mr. whoever you are (I already forgot). Stay grounded.

    Last summer at a KOA I walked up to a couples RV area. They were camp hosts and had a little 2 ft fence around to hold in their little dogs. I had petted the dogs before with no problems but this time one of the little buggers grabbed ahold of my hand and held on. It fell off. There was a little blood, some bruising and not much pain. You could tell they were really worried I was going to make a big deal out of it. I told them, ‘Hey, I put my hand into a gated area with dogs, my fault.’ They were relieved.

    I see each of the young men guarding each have a bayonet.

    Bava, I fell sorry for you that you can’t tell the difference. I hope one day you will understand.
