    Lot of that going around these days you know. I just don't get it. But I also don't get Lady GaGa either.

    Yeah, and people wonder why we're losing the Republic. No one wants to do their duty, no one wants to perform the research necessary to understand the dynamics of the system and make intelligent, informed decisions based on that.

Intelligent choices and actions can only be made when all data is present.
    So, no is allowed to have 40 people over their house? Not trying to skew anything. Its a 1.5 acre property and he built a permitted "game room" converting his garage in the back yard to accommodate his group. Around 2000 sq ft. So again, if the guy was having 40 guys over his house to watch football every Sunday, this wouldn't be an issue. Or should they cite and fine for running a sports bar out of his house?

    Oh, I am not wondering. I seen it coming as far back as Newt and Starr. As soon as the media realized the commercial value in dividing the populace and propagandizing their followers, it was Katy-Bar-The-Door. The ugly side of capitalism I suppose.

    We have the data.

    We have the right to our religion, we have the right to assemble, we have the right to speak... Pick one, any one, it doesn't matter.

    IOW, you don't mind tyranny, as long as it doesn't conflict with your politics, nor does it effect you.

    How many of the folks on this thread, who don't think the city did anything wrong, got their panties in a knot when the occu-tards got kicked out of the city parks? Be honest!

    well after re-writing this post several times I decided not to say anything at all - because momma always says ___
