    Um, did anyone read that amendment? It prevents funds from being used to punish states which refuse to bow down to Obama's transgender nonsense.

    Enjoy it while you can. Judging from the latest in PBS propaganda, the liberals don't think any island should have any cars at all. Apparently they believe in pedambulances.

    Reads to me like she thinks sick people consuming manufactured chemicals on a doctor's orders is fine, but a sick person consuming one of God's Own Inventions on a doctor's orders is pure evil. I hope the people of that town have enough sense to be relieved they got those insane people out of those particular positions of power and responsibility.

    Well, Romans 13.1 denies, contradicts and refutes Jesus' statement that what is of Caesar is of Caesar, and what is of God is of God. So I can't say I think much of it either. But Romans 13.2 says you're damned to hell if you believe Jesus and not Paul. So I can't say I like that one whit better.

    See how kind men are, even when y'all think we're being rude? Just think how much more crow you'd have had to eat if he had stayed on the line and let you finish your completely unwarranted diatribe! And why are you people still yelling? The old deaf lady seems to have abandoned the room.

    Well, nice of them to tell the truth about the One Party-Two Divisions system and the overwhelming role of the propagand--er, I mean the media in our elections. But I wish someone would dig into those damned Diebold machines. That's going to be a tough nut to crack.

    Yeah, there is evolution in that. When I was a kid, a state had to be right on the Atlantic to be eastern. The system remained in place from the days when the Atlantic Seaboard was everything and all viewpoints were their viewpoints. Thus, the states between those states and the Mississippi were the Midwest, and those between the Mississippi and the Roçkies the Plains States, which were the first tier of Western States. Remember that the Gateway Arch of St. Louis is called that because St. Louis was the Gateway to the West. Dodge City was once the Western Frontier, yet it is nearly exactly the same distance from New York and San Francisco. Remember that Southwestern Bell was the Ma Bell division that served Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. That was very much considered the Southwest. California, of course, was a Left Coast State, and then as now, the Land of Fruits and Nuts. Might as well be a different planet. One of the reasons the hiway toll went up during the 'safety years' of the Double Nickel is no one wanted to drive 55, but some particularly law-abiding people did anyway. And on a high speed roadway like an Interstate, it isn't speed that kills, but variations in speed. Someone doing 30 might as well be parked, for the amount of danger they pose. And someone doing 55 is hardly less dangerous.

    It's just the eastern states trying to screw the western states. Again. Considering Clinton was first lady of a western state, and would be screwing her own people, well, it just goes to show what a sweetheart she is. And few will do it, if history is any indication. The 55 mph speed limit probably did more than any other single piece of legislation since Prohibition to convince Americans that their rulers are asses, and no one should listen to them at all. And she knows that. She also knows it got more vehicles searched than any other piece of legislation ever.

    Definitely. First they go down the peninsula, then they cut right across a mountain range that no private railroad was ever stupid enough to try to conquer. This lands them in the San Joaquin Valley, which is a box canyon, so they have to squeeze in amongst the SP line over Tehachapi, so they cut back west to LA, then go due east. And both times they abandon that Pacific Ocean scenery which made the Coast Daylight and the San Diegan popular tourist attractions back in the day. Boondoggle is right. You can't even call that the Mark of Zorro line, because it forms a double Z. Maybe they'll have ZZ Top play at the ribbon cutting. Except those old men will be long dead by then...

    DAMN! No wonder they want a bullet train. They're building about as far around the long way as they possibly can without invading Nevada! But it won't do them any good, because they cross ever major mountain range in the state except the Sierra-Nevadas. Not even Bullet Trains can do the curves and grades of mountain trackage quickly. Los Angeles to Diego via Berdoo? Are they going to outlaw the existing San Diegan just to keep it from embarrassing their Bullet Train by getting there sooner the old fashioned way--by going the right direction? Thank you for answering my question. These people are crazy.

    The Constitution does not in any way empower the federal government to regulate, endorse, restrict, reward, tax, guarantee benefits for, or in any way recognize marriage. Now. If you are forced by the fellow inmates of a democracy to allow the federal government to do all that crap, then does the Constitution guarantee some kind of equal access to all of that crap? I'm not saying I agree with Johnson in this, or that I think he did an adequate job of explaining this. But are there really not real-world extenuating circumstances involved here? Just because a person is a realist does not mean he can't be a libertarian. It's hard, and maybe he can't be a very good one. But it doesn't mean he can't be one at all.

    If it's going through Bakersfield, it isn't going to directly serve San Francisco at all, unless they convert the Bay Bridge and the BART system to accommodate it. It'll terminate in Oakland or Richmond. South of Bakersfield, this will hardly be a high speed run, because that stretch goes straight up to Tehachapi. This run has a railroad on it. It was built by the Southern Pacific, which is now part of the Union Pacific. And the Santa Fe, now the BNSF, has trackage rights on it. It's the busiest stretch of single track railroad in the whole world, and the wealth of the world travels on it. It's steep and winding, and its right of way is often barely wider than the trains that use it. How are they going to build another, different type of line through there without interfering in the extensive business of those two railroads? Why would they, considering no train could possibly traverse the stretch quickly? Why didn't they go down the coast instead? Are they crazy?

    Went to Outback and my brother got one of their mustard-maple pork chops. I asked for the recipe. I didn't get it. But I did have a taste. And that was enough for me to get close. Mix about 60% maple syrup and about 40% mustard into a glaze, and add spices to taste--but make sure the two you use the most of are sage and ginger. Glaze both sides of your chops and charcoal slowly in a Weber. And to hell with applesauce.

    Not totally. It just isn't that difficult, these days, to persuade them that the federal government is not to be trusted with that. Washington just takes their cut and doles the money out to state and county services anyway, usually after insisting these local bureaus jump through some silly hoops. A 'drain the swamp' argument carries a lot of weight with liberals at the moment. Especially when coupled with a reminder that no libertarian will violate a state's ninth and tenth amendment rights to do their own things their own way. Indeed, if you point to federal corruption and cite the Nnth and Tenth, you can get most liberals on board with the LP in just about any election for federal office. Won't help you much with getting them on board for county commissioner, of course. But for president and Congress, we have every reason to work together. Local food is a good thing, but local control is even smarter.

    They would if they could. They wish they already did. But they'll keep spamming what little they've got, mainly this NR spin, and probably townhall parroting it and whoever else parrots it as a sort of backhanded confirmation, until they're blue in the face.

    If she was, she'd have stopped spamming these misrepresentations after she was called out on them the first time. You can see for yourself how responsible she is in laying off the spamming of the disproven.
