Maybe not political but it has to do with our justice system just the same.
[quote]ANGLETON, Texas (AP) — A southeast Texas man says that despite his acquittal Wednesday for the shooting death of the drunken driver who caused a crash that killed his two sons, there are no winners.[/quote]

Any PT ballers going to suffer from this? After reading a couple of websites about it I'm as confused as a rabbit in the road during rush hour.
One article says it's bad, the other says the the first article has it all wrong. Who'd a thunk it. About the only thing I know, maybe, is that it involves...

Here's your chance.

Blast away with your reasons. The point I put to you is that if you say yes, then all tax deductions for being married, having children or any other benefit granted by govt. for married and children reasonings should be eliminated to have total disconnect from the government.
Right or wrong?...

In politics? Up until the past X amount of years this was always a #1 excuse for the reason our country was in the bad political shape it was. Just wondering if we can now add women and minorities to the list? Where's the blame for them?
P.S. This is a no link verifiable statement. Just a "we've ...

Here in AR we have this type system. Seems to work pretty well. Without one party entrenched in the highest offices in the land, do you think there would be a better system of checks and balances in national government?
I know in the past here in AR that sometimes the governor is/was very deliber...

According to CNN tv this morning the 300 advisors are Green Beret soldiers. I'd imagine these guys don't go take a leak in the bushes without a weapon slung over their shoulder.
How can this not be considered boots on the ground? I would think they are not going to be cooped up in an office somew...

I have five acres of yard to mow. About 4-5 years ago the fire ants were getting pretty damn bad. I would see at least 75-100 hills of them. Only three or four would be considerable size. As I'd mow I'd stop and shake a little Amdro on them. Seem to work on existing mounds but they'd just move to a ...

Why are defense cuts made at the soldier's expense? I would think that any place that you have to inhabit while walking around with a rifle in your hands would be considered hazardous.

What is the first thing you think about when receiving orders that you will be going home on such-n-such date? I'm pretty sure I know the answer but it is only opinion on my part.
The reason I ask is because I find this situation with BB not contacting his parents after two weeks of "freedom" ver...

Anyone else been watching this series special? I've learned several things that I was never taught in school. Have any of you history buffs been able to catch the shows?
