Up for Debate: Police padlock markets

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at 12:42am

Do you agree with the move by law enforcement officials to raid and padlock local markets that allegedly sold synthetic? Is the shuttering of businesses and seizure of money a good use of law enforcement resources, or do you believe the producers will just find other ways around the law? How do you generally feel about public nuisance laws being used to shutter businesses — something Metro police has stepped up the past few years?

Why did he clasp his hands over his crotch instead of his hand over his heart when the National Anthem was played?

Translation; I would love to play with his crotch. Yummy….

President Obama – The Radical Christian Muslim?
Posted by PoliShifter on 17 May 2012, 9:16 am
It was reported today that some big Conservative Super PAC was ready to dredge up Reverend Jeremiah Wright again. You remember Jeremiah Wright don’t you? He was President Obama’s CHRISTIAN pastor for a while. MSNBC just reported that this big Conservative Super PAC is now going to drop the idea. Why? Go for it boys – let’s see what you got.

Nevertheless I have to ask how rightwingers can chastise President Obama for belonging to a Christian Church run by Reverend Wright and call him a Muslim at the same time? How many times does President Obama have to tell us he is a Christian for these rightwing vermin to finally believe him? How many times does President Obama have to mention God?

I'm reluctant to throw a wrench into the system where the poorest among us live lifestyles in the top 20% of the world's wealthy gd.

Did you pull that number out of your ass? Cite your source.

"I'm all for equal opportunity to succeed, but I'm not sure how anyone can argue that is the case in America right now. And regardless of your beliefs on class, that is a problem."

I'd say that an American in 2012 has the greatest chance to succeed ever in the history or the world. Never before has a society been more open to women, minorities than now.
We have a mixed race president (granted he's absolutely terrible) and we have a women Sec. of State.

Does it help to start out rich- heck yeah but you will be hard pressed to find some where else where you can be rewarded for what you know or what you can do- regardless of your family standing.

It's interesting, I see where California now has 3 cities that have gone bankrupt and Scranton PA just went under. They've cut their employees pay to 7.25 per hour now and looking to release some that they can.

So Congress is giving aide to foreign nations to pull them our of their cesspool but they can't help the cities of their own damn nation. And that "aide" is being given, not loaned.

Who are they serving; us, or them?

It depends on whose bag you're using, gdiafarte.

It happens in other parts of the world, BigPapa

Born Richard Charles Nicholas Branson on July 18, 1950 in Surrey, England. His father, Edward James Branson, worked as a barrister. His mother, Eve Branson, was employed as a flight attendant. Richard, who struggled with dyslexia, had a hard time with educational institutions.

I'll have to dig the source up. Quoting it from memory gd.

Why... we have success here in Nashville. I'm sure Rasp's fortune exceeds Richard Branson's Nemo. Sources say Rasp invented the Hula Hoop in the 50's, made a fortune.
Cubby Checker stole the idea and created the twist. This is a great country.. I tell ya..

I see where Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker are two of the 20 Republican Senators backing the LOST (Law of the Sea Treaty) treaty in turning over our sovereignty to the third world government: The United Nations.

Part of that goal is to gain gun control so that seems to put Alexander and Corker as anti-gunners to get gun control.

You aren't seriously going to argue that the UK allows for as much upward mobility as the USA based on Richard Branson?

Please...

My mistake BigPapa that must have been an act of God Loves a Brit. ;-0

Actually the UK is close behind us.... but the Scandinavian countries are kicking our collective asses.

Just Google "upward mobility by country"
