Obama Currency Law - effective July 1 - Homesick Tiger
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...

Old white men - do you miss them? - Homesick Tiger
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 ...

Should VP and AG offices be separate elections? - Homesick Tiger
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?

Advisors are Green Beret personnel - CNN - Homesick Tiger
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...

Fire ants, Crawfish and Mother Nature - Homesick Tiger
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 ...

Question for overseas military people - Homesick Tiger
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.
