Speak Up for Wild Horses; Send a Letter via Pony Express

Commented Aug 26, 2010 at 16:29:51 in Green

“For those of you who send letters, be sure to put them into your own words. The BLM has a nasty habit of disregarding (as in trashing) letters that appear to be "form letters".

Please raise your voices to help save these animals from extinction. 100 years ago we had 2 million, now we are down to 30,000 roaming wild and 34,000 held in deplorable conditions by the BLM.”

“And the AFL-CIO is not a news organization that is supposed to be dedicated to fairly reporting the news. They are pretty up front with their goals & interests.

“At least 36 other countries do, including Canada, France, & Germany.”

“france, um not really (theres a bunch of other requirements)

there are a few first world countries that still do this

but by and large, its a policy that only exists in third world countries, and has been abandoned by most modern states”

“Another big reason to keep the law as is: it keeps kids from potentially being without a nationality. What is there to be afraid of anyway?

People do not try to run across the border to have kids. They come across to create a better life for themselves, and sometimes, they have kids while they are here.”

ghee99 on May 29, 2010 at 02:56:38

“kids wouldn't be without nationality

they would take on the citizenship of their parents (you know like that already do anyway)

this is just a canard to justify allowing illegal aliens to continue having anchor babies”

conservo on May 28, 2010 at 16:48:43

“And many times they come across the border to have kids. There is now a service that can be found on the computer that ushers women from Poland and Russia (for a price, of course) over to the US during the last stages of their pregnancy so that they can have their baby in the US and become American citizens.”

“YOU ARE SO RIGHT. These fools act like a 9-month pregnant woman boards a plane or takes a long drive across the desert to give birth.

Maybe, these children can be born as citizens of Walmart. Maybe citizens of Exxon/Mobil.

These people are insane.”

“So, how on earth does he think he could even enforce this law? Are kids going to have to carry around their parents' papers too?

What happens to those kids whose parents are American but have been estranged or abandoned by them?”

gconners on May 28, 2010 at 16:16:10

“Great, just great!!! You just gave Arizona an idea for their next law! "...KIDS have to carry around their PARENT'S papers..?"...Just. Great!...I wonder who will be the first to jump on this, Hayworth or McCain???”

Tennessee Flood Victims Need Your Help

Commented May 7, 2010 at 15:39:07 in Impact

“The President has been busy giving Nashville the aid they need - approving Bredesen's requests for aid, and declaring emergency disasters for as many counties as the governor requested.

Then, he did what he should have done - had White House people call Bredesen repeatedly to see what our state really needs, and allowed FEMA to do their job. I'll take that over a passing comment about the loss that gets soon forgotten.”

“If any of you watched the telethon to raise money for Nashville, you might have caught Bredesen talking about how FEMA and the rest of the federal government has handled this disaster. Despite a lack of press, FEMA & the White House have been very responsive. Obama called the governor to ask what TN needs, the FEMA director has visited twice, and the fed govt moved swiftly to move these areas into emergency disaster status.

I'd trust our own governor's assessment of the aid coming from the govt over random people who have nothing to do with the process.”

SantaFeConservative on May 7, 2010 at 16:17:18

“Hmmm ... Bush did the same thing with the governor of LA and she would not declare a State of Emergency so that the Feds could activate the National Guard BEFORE Katrina hit. And somehow it became his fault.”

“Interesting...Gun rally in DC. Shooting in Knoxville, TN.

Undoubtedly, someone will come on here and say "well, if those idiots had been carrying, then this guy wouldn't have shot them."

Of course that makes sense. Doctors and Nurses carrying weapons just in case someone might come and shoot their hospital.

"Honey, I'm going to go to work, now."
"Ok, honey, have a great day, and don't forget to pack your Glock! It could be dangerous filling out paperwork for cardiac patients!"”

Tennessee Football Riots PHOTOS, VIDEO: Lane Kiffin's Leaving Tennessee Causes Fury

Commented Jan 13, 2010 at 15:41:01 in Sports

“Speaking as a UT Alum, I can tell you that the hurt is more about the timing and suddenness of his departure, not the simple fact that he is leaving. The school here is like one big family - once you're a part of it, you're accepted wholly. It's not about the football game itself - it's about leaving behind a family of student athletes, and the university.

Then he suddenly left, right at the beginning of the new semester, right after we've been trying to line up good recruits for next year, and jets off to Cali where he came from.

I get wanting to go back home, and I get wanting to pursue the money - but to just up and quit like that with no notice? Well, how would you feel?

Glad he left, not glad about the WAY he left. But, at least the staff here, and our interim coach are focused on the right things - the students.”

lisakaz2 on Jan 13, 2010 at 16:15:16

“The reaction is more than "hurt" though. And I was there for 2 yrs. I don't think I was ever "accepted" -- not by my dept.”

“Let me get one thing straight - it's impossible to "deface" The Rock (short of cutting it apart, I guess), because it's whole existence is to be the canvas for student graffiti. Job well done, Rock.

And the rioting, from what I'm hearing was more like an excuse to party. Well, who are we kidding, it doesn't take much to set off a campus at night, especially the day before classes start.

Lastly, the students at UT are not a bunch of un-educated hillbillies. It's a large public university with all the nice amenities and the pricetag to go with it. ESPECIALLY for the students who lived on campus and were causing all the commotion - those are certainly the wealthiest ones.”

“We're still out here - working to spread the truth about health care reform, and generally working to hold Obama's feet to the fire (just as he asked us).

We may not be getting media attention, but we are still plenty active. I know the Facebook Community is especially active on all issues. They have been driving their messages on a person-to-person basis. Seems less flashy, but you have a much better chance of changing someone's mind one-on-one.

While it may seem lower key - we are just focused on getting through to the people that count. We've been writing, calling, and visiting our reps and senators. Still here, still fired up!”

“They are choosing not to take part in the public option because they already have good insurance paid for by the taxpayer through the federal government AND they can afford to pay the premiums on it, because they are well-paid.

Doesn't this just illustrate the point that you will be able to keep what you have if you are satisfied?

Aside from that, they major point of this bill is to provide coverage for EVERYONE at a rate they can afford. It's targeting the less well-off.”
