    I was there in 1981 and 1982.

    WayTruthLife777, some people are paid extremely well because they are able to do a unique job much better than the average person. That includes actors, athletes and entertainers in general. No one is going to the comedy club to see some guy read jokes out of a book, nobody is going to buy an iThing designed by someone with no taste and nobody is going to pay to see an overweight, middle aged man trip over his own feet while he fumbles a football.

    Your premise that someone is stealing from you is patently false. You don’t have to buy an iPhone, go see the latest Avengers movie or buy season tickets to the Lakers.

    Wealth is not limited. There isn’t a single pile of money that everyone draws from where a rich bully is pushing you into the gutter to stop you from getting your share. You can create your own wealth.

    You’re a simple minded socialist who thinks bad rich people are stealing from you. There will always be a boogie man hiding in your closet who intimidates you because he has nicer clothes. Grow up. If you want a Lamborghini then set a goal, create a plan and work on it. Stop blaming other people when you only have yourself to blame for your shortcomings.

    Ever wonder where trickle down economics comes from?

    When Ronald Reagan was an actor the tax rate was 90% for those who earned over $200,000. He was offered a movie role, but had already earned $200,000 that year. He figured it wasn’t worth the effort to make another movie but only take home 10% of what he earned. Sounds reasonable, right?

    Then he realized that if he didn’t make the movie then the writers, producer, director, gaffers, best boy, make up artists, caterers, other actors, stage hands and everybody else associated with the business wouldn’t make any money at all. When someone at the top of the business did well, everybody did well. The money “trickled down” to others.

    BTW, the 90% tax rate wasn’t dropped until Kennedy was President. Raise it back to 90% and people who create wealth aren’t going to waste their time and effort after being told by the government that their work is worth only 10% of what they earn. They’re going to close shop and the people they employ are going home.

    Sanders needs a history lesson.

    We have the Pedal Pubs in downtown Nashville, and yes, they are slow and in the way sometimes. But people on bicycles would be the least affected and should be the least offended by a slow moving vehicle filled with tourists enjoying your fair city. If you’re on a bike, go around them.

    I’m just happy to have tourists spending all their money. If you treat them nicely, they’ll come back with more money next year.

    Shotguns are legal if you register it with a Shotgun Certificate. There is no limit to how many you can own or how much ammo you can have.

    You can’t unpull a trigger. Always identify your target.

    I think it’s clear he’s talking about free speech on college campuses. The “NOH8″ campaign is designed to label people with a different viewpoint as purveyors of hate speech.

    Am I the only person who remembers Nixon nominating Ford for VP after Agnew resigned? Either I’m old or everybody here is a victim of public school education.

    Monk, maybe I am misreading your post, but if Joe Biden resigns or “if something bad happened to him,” the President nominates a choice for VP. See the 25th Amendment, Section 2.

    Adopted Feb, 1967.

    The Speaker of the House is third in line to the President only if both the President and VP are unable to continue in office.

    I’ve never met Taylor but I’ve met her father and he was nice enough to give me a guitar pick with her name on it. I think he keeps a bowl of them on his desk.

    I’m pretty sure it was too many Big Macs.

    Why would Obama nominate Boehner for VP?

    It’s nice to see Delta Force getting some action, and I bet they know how to keep their mouths shut.

    If the SEAL’s had gone in they would already have several book deals, a half dozen talk shows lined up and a Hollywood movie coming out by Christmas.

    Remind me of this again in 10 years.

    He’ll still be sitting in a cell on death row. And we’ll still be wondering what’s taking so long.

    Half the people killed in abortions are women.

    Please tell me more about these “women’s rights” that Planned Parenthood supports.

    300,000 people die in the US each year from obesity. But you have my permission to eat as much pizza as you want.

    Its almost impossible to take a picture while outside and not have someones personal property in the background. Any law forbidding that would quickly be thrown out by the courts.

    Flying over your property is a tough one though. We know airliner flying at over your house at 30,000 ft. isn’t trespassing. But a police or news helicopter flying at 500 ft. isn’t either. If the FAA says toy remote control airplanes have to fly under 400 ft., then they’re creating a conflict between personal property and public airspace.

    We’re going to see these laws redefined in the next few years.
