Petition for it just like the choose life organization did.
An honestly, the Consitution reads:
"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."
This was not a Consitutional issue. Now that the gov't has ruled in favor to remove speech it might be argued...
If the choose life plate shall be illegal, so shoudl every other plate that's not Standard Issue. Unless we want to be "hippocrips."
Just becuse you and I are both pro-choice, does not give us the right to deny the speech of pro-choicers. Instead, a bitter death squad went through the courts to do so, instead of getting organized themselves and coming up with and getting passed through state senate a "Abort your unwanted mistake" plate. it's despicable and unamerican.
I know you wear steel toes, so you and I are probably on the same page for how we'd handle the situation.
Shooting the ******* thing is a little over the top don't you agree?
I honestly don't know. There are a lot of variables, and I wasn't there. If the dog appeared to be attacking the officer while the owner was shouting and being hysterical, then shooting it was probably justified. If the dog was not moving towards the officer and the owner was not being hysterical, then shooting it was probably not justified.
There is not enough information available in the article linked to make a determination.
This is what poverty sometimes looks like in America: parents here in Appalachian hill country pulling their children out of literacy classes. Moms and dads fear that if kids learn to read, they are less likely to qualify for a monthly check for having an intellectual disability. …This is painful for a liberal to admit, but conservatives have a point when they suggest that America’s safety net can sometimes entangle people in a soul-crushing dependency. …Some young people here don’t join the military (a traditional escape route for poor, rural Americans) because it’s easier to rely on food stamps and disability payments. Antipoverty programs also discourage marriage: In a means-tested program like S.S.I., a woman raising a child may receive a bigger check if she refrains from marrying that hard-working guy she likes. Yet marriage is one of the best forces to blunt poverty. In married couple households only one child in 10 grows up in poverty, while almost half do in single-mother households. Most wrenching of all are the parents who think it’s best if a child stays illiterate, because then the family may be able to claim a disability check each month.
Without commenting on the merits of cap-n-trade per se, the following quote told me all I needed to know about the author of the article:
A study sponsored by pro-business groups estimates that the state will have 262,000 fewer jobs in 2020 because of the climate-change law.
Well, duh. A "pro-business group" will inherently tend to lobby for whatever will reduce the costs of doing business, and thus, improve margins. If the same study were conducted by a "pro-environmental group," it would have concluded that California's climate-change laws will result in the creation of 262,000 new jobs by 2020.
We see what we want to see, and this is understandable. But citing such as study as supporting evidence in an article reeks of Wikipedia Journalism.
Didn't Obama sign a law that prevented another auto bailout? you know, the one he campaigned for and against depending on what venue he was at?
Obama's request, as detailed in a letter sent to Capitol Hill by the director of the White House's Office of Management and Budget, Jeffrey Zients, includes these requests:
— “This request would provide $4 million to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to replace vehicles, laboratory and office equipment, and furniture damaged as a result of Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $2.4 million in response to Hurricane Sandy to replace destroyed or damaged vehicles, including mobile x-ray machines at ports of entry in New York and New Jersey, and other equipment.”
— “This request would provide $1 million to the Drug Enforcement Administration, which would be used to repair or replace over 15 vehicles, information technology equipment, and antennas and repeaters at sites affected by Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $855,000 to replace Immigration and Customs Enforcement law enforcement vehicles damaged in Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $300,000 to replace Secret Service law enforcement vehicles as well as associated communications equipment permanently damaged by flooding associated with Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $230,000 to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to replace three vehicles, repair communication lines, and replace damaged furniture as a result of Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $20,000 for the Office of Inspector General to repair and replace vehicles, equipment, and furniture as a result of Hurricane Sandy.”
— “This request would provide $348 million for large-scale National Park Service projects that repair or rehabilitate a resource or facility damaged in national parks as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Hardest hit parks include Statue of Liberty Island, Ellis Island, Gateway NRA, and Fire Island. This request also includes funding for affected parks in Florida, North Carolina, and the D.C. area. Federal real property damage includes buildings, utilities, seawalls, docks, piers, and shoreline restoration. Equipment damage includes damages to radios, fueling stations, vehicles, boats, fire systems and historical assets.”
— “This request would provide $78 million for large-scale Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) projects that repair or rehabilitate resources or facilities damage to National Wildlife Refuges (NWR) or other FWS properties, such as Fish Health and Technology Centers in response to Hurricane Sandy. Refuges that were hit hardest by the Hurricane include E.B. Forsythe NWR (New Jersey), the Long Island NWR Complex (New York) and Prime Hook NWR (Delaware). This request also includes funding for Refuges from Florida to Maine. Major damage to Federal real property includes buildings, utilities, vegetation, gates, fences, seawalls, docks, and shorelines. Equipment damage includes damages to water treatment tanks, fueling stations, vehicles, and boats.”
I wonder if any victims of Sandy get any millions?
