    I would like Ted Cruz to explain. I am really disappointed.
    So Rand has been out on the floor doing a mini filibuster to stop the Patriot Act and he voted no to this secret deal after reading it. They classified it to hide it from us and the media. Even if I agreed with it, I would vote no because my constituents had not been briefed. It’s wrong. Rand knows the same thing, though he even commented he had not seen anything “bad” in the bill (he also said he could not tell us much).

    We must promise ourselves we will find this bill and read it when they finally release it. What else did we expect? CatB posted the roll call list of the Yea/Nay votes-not a big shock.

    Notice this, Rand Paul did read the bill. He voted “Nay”. Unless he was playing politics, that is very telling. Mike Lee too. How weird to see them on a roll call with mostly lefties.

    Either way, again I will say, never forget NAFTA, it may have accomplished one good thing, but the consequences wiped out our production here and don’t let anyone tell you any different.

    She must have missed the memo about the fact that life is not always fair. But leave it to someone to actually say this.
    Hey Lady, did you ever stop to think that what happened to the families of the men slaughtered in Benghazi was not fair. Hillary was involved in gun running and did not tell us, that’s not fair and I might say it is treason. You go to the corner and tell the corner about lack of fairness in this world…we know alll about it.

    Let’s get this straight for the last time. This deal has nothing to do with helping the U.S. or the citizens. It feels odd and it is odd.

    It is not shocking McConnell is right in the thick of things.

    Again, we need to completely clean house. Until then it’s cronyism and thuggery as usual. Period.

    We have to believe our own intuition that this whole trade thing, the little we know, will be felt too late. All I keep thinking of is NAFTA. Look where that put us today.

    We have to know, we are toast so just start coming up with ways to live around this mess that we can’t seem to vote ourselves out of.

    I was thinking today, I could care less about driverless cars by Google, but I sure do worry about a big ole government without people. The nation’s driver seat is empty.

    I have a different opinion. I feel like (and this is something Glenn talked back in 2010-2011) the reverse is happening. I feel like they are whipping up the hue and cry to take away civil protections for each state so eventually the military is going to be our force. So they have to remove our understanding of who Peace Officers are and our trust. When Obama announced he was going to stop the military supplies (of which very few forces get anyway so it was as usual a meaningless action) I thought to myself that again that they are trying to wipe out state policing so the policing is from the White House.
    I think Glenn’s statements of possibility back in 2010/2011 are actually closer to the truth than his current new position.
    No thanks to White House control.

    Wow she reeks of defensiveness and what a bitter Betty.
    The smart comment is in her own mind. The very rare times I tune in to the get the temperature of those of CNN, I am amazed at the utter smug authority they ooze in delivering their drivel. They are so out of touch and it drives me NUTS when I walk into businesses and the TV is tuned to CNN.
    The “cast” at CNN always seem like caricatures to me. Like in a Will Farrell movie.

    Stay the course Matt…!

    In my estimation, he did not answer, he spoke around it. Sounds too familiar.

    Either you know or you don’t know…either you have a formal position or you do not. His response was an uncomfortable fusing of both. Yuck.

  • May 18, 2015 at 3:42am

    Interesting and scary!

  • [1] May 18, 2015 at 3:39am

    NoConcession, I was just thinking the same thing. An evil corral for them to fight it out until they are just no more.
    I was also thinking, of several places in the bible where it talks about the meek inheriting the prosperity of the earth etc. Well no wonder, we will be the only ones standing!
    I truly believe that above race or ideology, evil has this scary ability to bring the most unlikely together so much so that we often don’t recognize what is really happening. For example in Baltimore or Ferguson, it was a very dark attitude or belief…Jihad, the same…the bikers in this story, the same-we could go on and on. All the groups have obvious differences that I mention, but the results are the same, violent and destructive.
    I tell you that I find it ironic when people give me guff when I tell them that I believe in peace through strength. Too few of us really understand what that means. I think it means standing up to bullies and not allowing them a foothold. The restaurant did not do that, and the U.S. is not anymore.

    I want to know what biker gangs this was. I have a hunch.

    I wish they would have taken their evil outside of a place where innocent people are. These evil doers give the weekend warriors a bad name. I hate this.

    When I was young, I had a heritage Sportster (female version), and I would ride with the regular weekend warriors in my area. We used to get warned if the gangs were going to be at ANY location we had planned on meeting. I never knew if I encountered a “gang member” at an event, but we sure saw packs of them hovering. They did not cause trouble with the general population of riders but they sure rival one another. My groups did not drink and ride or (anything else) so we usually did not encounter problems.

    This is how you know everyone is “in on it”. How can they let this go on? What a sham.

    The part that makes my teeth gnash is where have they been the last 50 years with all the money they did have?

    If my roof leaks and it reaches critical mass after I know about it, but do not fix it, could I really go begging for money from someone? No, I did not plan for it against my better own judgement so I cut certain plans, adjust spending and get it handled. If someone did not reserve adequately with what they have for a future expense, that’s called lack of discipline and poor planning OR the truth is, lack of prioritization.

    To make matters they go begging and screw up using the wrong crisis when it is very clear that the engineer was speeding. They really think people are stupid.

    Hellew? We are watching you money spenders…We know you are full of it….fix the track and get over it. And while your at, screen your engineers better.

    Good point, I have two items I have pulled back and am waiting to have the money from the business to trademark both. You are absolutely right….it’s the only way to really have a fail proof design in your business.

  • May 13, 2015 at 8:14pm

    Morepeasplease – In the spirit of helping you specifically, go to a protected handmade site where you have a store front. If you want to brand and sell, it’s the safest way to start. I found that out last year with what I do. That way if good ole Target taps you it’s helpful to have it published and already for sale and hopefully your true originals are marked with copyright in the photos. Then ole Target will also have to give your sewing fund a “tap” too!

    Right, it’s the design only and the materials together. Speaking of graphics, my web host tried to use random graphics on my Facebook page and I had a fit. First off, it did represent my pieces, and secondly, they did not clarify to me where the graphics came from so I was worried about the copyright issue (though I know they probably cover it). I really feel for graphic folks, because I see graphics repeated and I always wonder if the right chain of permission is going on. In my business, it is very clear about design and outcome and who owns it and how to get permission if you want to produce the exact thing you see, because most pieces are so distinct. Thanks for sharing what you know with me.

  • [2] May 13, 2015 at 2:13pm

    Yep, your right. That is off the rack for ya. Of course I shop at Target, but off the rack buyers do not even worry about that in any significant way because they know the manufacturers bear that problem. Sadly, most of the manufacturers are in China….what a shock that China rips us off.

  • [5] May 13, 2015 at 2:10pm

    I have my own little business with original creations and she needs to know, from the moment of creation and especially if she made it public, it’s hers. The U.S. no longer requires publication (in U.S. records though it is recommended) and the CR lasts 75-95 years. Also, always mark original with the C sign, the date, and the owner name of the copyright. I wonder if her shirts carried that marking originally?

    This story does not have other facts needed, but from what this says, she should explore it for her companies sake.

    So if she created a black tank with that one word phrase and offered it for sale before Target and they made the very same shirt out of the very same one word phrase, she needs to push on it with Target.

    There is honor among people who create boutique originals but very little of that in off the rack retail. I am very protective of my work, though I will give permission for anything except for manufacturing by large companies. And if a small business wants to manufacture any of my work, it has to have my name and design credit on it. Plus of course I ask for a fee (small) to reproduce no more than 50.

    I want to find her. Hopefully this story leaves out the fact that she really will research this.

    Blinknight- The issue is… the standards have to be met by all kids including ILP children and a certain level of disabled children so they bring the middle and top down to that level in some disciplines. Also, back in the day, when you graduated, even without college you were pretty educated. Not anymore. They are teaching them civil service and adherence to a bunch of confusing “logic” and then saying, if the kids want to get anywhere then they have to go to college. It’s really happening.
