Guys my concern is the "Dark Money" that was used in this election. I believe that if those who were the benficiaries of Dark Money (and there were many among the newly elected) should reveal the source of the funds that were used in their campaigns. I believe that being open about funding will be a big step toward fixing that which is said to be broken.
Come on start cleaning the slate and tell us where the money came from -- even if under the current Supreme Court (a very conservative body) you don't have to.
Sorry about butchering the English language. There is a need - - - . However, mention water and you all know by now that, well you all know :-)
I had always had respect for WIFA. After reading the article in the Roundup, I am wondering if my respect was misplaced.
Tom, you are right. There needs to be graduated water rates, for example, first 3,000 gallons - $3.00; second 3,000 gallons -- $6.00; etc. If their isn't a graduated rate, their is no incentive to conserve. Those who use the most water put a greater strain on the water resources. If they want to use a lot of water and strain the water resources they should pay for it with higher rates.
With regard to your question concerning why a university in North Carolina? I ask, What about UofA, ASU or Northern? Don't they have the talent and ability to study the state's water issues?
I will never forget what happened one Halloween. It was getting late; almost time to turn off the outside light. My husband had just pulled out of the driveway when the doorbell rang. When I answered the door, there was an adult sized "ghoul" facing me. A deep voice said, "Trick or treat," while holding up a shot glass. I was so scared (yes, I am easy to scare -- and I was younger then), I couldn't speak or think. Finally, I pulled a piece of candy out of the treat bag and placed it in the shot glass. I then quickly closed the door and caught my breath.
A couple of days later other neighbors told of a similar experience. A few weeks later I found out who the culprit was. She said she almost wet her pants when I placed the candy in the shot glass. Seems some other people swore, slammed the door, etc.
We had a good laugh as she said, "I'm so glad you were taught to be nice to "ghouls." I said, "Nice nothing, you scared the living daylights out of me." We remained good friends.
Ron, we are doing just fine now that it is cooling off in the Valley. We certainly do miss Pine, but we are adjusting.
By the way, Ron, Happy Birthday. How do you plan on celebrating?
;-) Ron, that explains a lot!!!! ;-)
I think the country receiving the criminal has to agree to take him/her in. --- unless the person being sent there was born in that country and has not become a naturalizedU.S, citizen.
Someone clear this up, please. Can the U.S. just send criminals to other countries? What are the regulations?
I am so very FED UP with people who have private agendas trying to control the decisions of others. I believe the decision of when "to pull the plug" is a private decision that should be made by the people (the family) who know, love and respect the dying, incapcitated person. Let me be clear, I respect the decision of people who decide to keep their loved one on life support, I respect the decision of people who decide to pull the plug.
To pull or not to pull is a private decision and whatever the decision is it should be respected. Others should not use undue influence and try to control the outcome when a stressed out people (the family) are coping with making a decision.
Biting back might be a good way to teach not to bite. BUT, a paid professional biting a child----NEVER!!!! If my child was bitten by a preschool teacher, I would be plenty mad. If my child bites someone while in day care, he/she should be given a time out, and I as a parent should be informed. I as a parent should take care of it. Now if I bite him, well??????????????? :-)
I don't think I would, unless he/she has proven biting problem.
