    I'm not sure where that is...but when I buy Butternut Squash at my local ranch market, which has produce for about 1/4 of what the supermarkets charge, I pay at least $2 for a butternut squash.

    I find it rather hard to believe that anyone could feed a family of 4 day after day for a dollar a head. Even so....you are basically the same price as running down to Jack in the Box and getting 8 tacos or Burger King for 4 double cheese burgers.

    The point being....cheap high fat fast food is what many of the poor nourish themselves on.

    Sorry...but you are wrong. It was Gil and he was referring to pre-packaged salad mixes that contain slivers of cabbage, radish and carrot. Hardly nutrious.

    Tell me which of the following things you advocate:
    -End the New Deal (Social Security included)
    -Anti-labor unions
    -No welfare
    -End the Great Society (Medicare/Medicaid included)
    -No "public option" or universal health care
    -Free markets without regulations
    -Flat tax rate
    -Military interventionism (such as the Vietnam War)

    Barry Goldwater advocated all of these. If you really wouldn't mind Goldwater-style conservatism, then that would mean that you do too.


    To the GOP "Conservative" means only two things, Anti-Reproductive Choice and Anti-gay rights.
    That is not true at all. Those things mean as much to the GOP as reproductive rights and gay marriage mean do the Democratic Party. They are only two of many issues.

    It's just arbitrary zoning. These are areas that were historically dense from the streetcar says, or dense because they are their own city (think of West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Glendale, and to a lesser extent Burbank and Pasadena). The only area that is kind of dense (I say kind of because the density here doesn't compare to New York or areas of Europe like a city of this size should) is Hollywood, but this is too small of an area to contain all of the poor.

    So the problem of the poor not being able to get good food is due to government and their stupid zoning laws.

    The Conservative movements will never win a majority back if they do not work together! and you cannot work together if you're working apart. you cannot win big games Gentlemen, if you've a fractured sideline!

    Now some of us are leaders, some shakers. Some block and tackle, some are on special teams. Some are responsible for staff, some for recruitment. Some for campaign excellence, some for charisma, some for spirit, some for strength. But we ALL have the same helmet on, Gentlemen. It's the same helmet. and without yer blockers, without support, yer play ain't going anywhere.

    So, with all due respect scorpion, snap that chinstrap tight and get back in the huddle. Want use a few of your plays, let's see the playbook. But quit slicing off pattern and acting like you want to throw another interception, remember the last was returned for a Barack Obama touchdown and a Joey Biden/Hillary Clinton two point conversion.

    Huddle up.
    Oh look folks this is what I expect a typical Party responce guess you missed the whole topic huh? So let me ask you and the rest off you what is more important your Loyalty to your party or Loyalty to The United States.

    You've never seen pre-packaged Caesar salad with Romaine in it???

    Wal-Mart has it, and cheap too.

    I've proved my point and I'm done with it.

    Then you are getting ripped.

    I find it rather hard to believe that anyone could feed a family of 4 day after day for a dollar a head.
    That's about what we spend per meal, unless we splurg and do steak and baked.... which we do alot.
    Even so....you are basically the same price as running down to Jack in the Box and getting 8 tacos or Burger King for 4 double cheese burgers.
    I thought you wanted every one to have a nutritious meal.

    The point being....cheap high fat fast food is what many of the poor nourish themselves on.
    Point being they are just being lazy, and that is how they guarantee they will stay poor.
