Re: Hey Ya'll

Well dang, you sure been through a few changes. Congrats on the work thing. As for the girl, what to say without sticking my foot in my mouth. Is it a bummer or a blessing in disguise. There's really nothing happening here. I've been given moderator status just to keep the spammers off. Twice I had...

Re: Tax Plans Revisited

One things for sure.Taxes are on the way up.
We have a new health care law that many congressional members admit to not having read.
that burdens us with many new taxes.
Taxes on medical devices and taxes on suntan treatments are just two examples;

Re: Tax Plans Revisited

Profits produce jobs because the profit maker spends or invests the money in his community! I absolutely oppose the requirement for people to mandatorily participate in a For Profit health insurance plan, just as I have always disliked the requirement to carry for profit auto insurance. Health insur...

Thomas, the Israelis have a history of taking matters into their own hands.
And who can blame them.

Re: 90 days, Mr. President

Obama's main concern in his first year has been paying back those who helped elect him, not make decisions in the best interest of the whole country. This is best illustrated with the contents of the health bill the HR passed. It is full of attacks and new taxes on business, yet there is not one men...

Re: Halloween

I understand, from previous posters on WNC talk, that copperheads are the dangerous snakes to look out for. There is a big city park in Walterboro, SC, that we walked around after stuffing ourselves at Dukes Barbeque. There were snakes all over the pathways there-not sure what kind but they were col...

Re: Snow

This year is unusual because of the amount of snow and when it started. Shoveling the wet snow is not much fun. Driving in our cul-de-sac was much more interesting. Tuesday 1-12-10 we had sleet fall around 7 am and it covered the roads before the dusting of snow. Made for driving to be a little tri...

Re: Snow

We arrived in Etowah the Sunday after the snowstorm, hours after the snowplow came through.
It was like a luge tunnel driving to our house. Parked at a neighbors driveway that night,
and shoveled snow the next day. Looked like 8-10 inches coverage. Beautiful!

Re: Our failed "government"

I would like to see a survey that rates our government so low. Not denying it but have never heard. I still believe our constitution to be one of the greatest documents of it's kind ever written but on the other hand, I am far from being a chauvinist preferring to think of myself as a citizen of th...

Re: Our failed "government"

We've got some decent people running for Congress and the Senate, and governor, from Florida:
At least two of them are people that you will run into at the grocery store, and have their
home phone listed in the phone book. I'll be walking precincts for both 8)

Re: Halloween

Black(garden) snakes are common here. Once I was trimming the hedges and came upon what i thought was some an old tire wrapped around a tree. Turned out, it was a snake that had knotted himself around the hedge! A neighbor got him off, and he took off. Good timing-the hot sun would have killed him s...

90 days, Mr. President

Three months have passed since General McCrystal has requested 40,000 more troops. In the meantime, President Obama has delayed and stalled in making a decision, all the while saying that he won't rush things. Well, before you visit North Korea next week, Mr. President, why don't you fulfill your re...
