re: PolitiFact: Who Lies the Most? No Surprise, it's Trump. Most Honest: Hillary. - doubleb
They only started counting in 2007, and that's part of the reason Hillary's total is so low. The other reason it's so low as the people doing the counting ignore the obvious ones Hillary made. For instance every time she was sworn in to office, she lied when she said she would protect the Constit...

King Edwards the II might be outslicking King Edwards the First. Edwards I sold gambling permits which became valuable because there were a fixed number. The same thing with Hospital permits. Now we see the numbers are almost unlimited and not defined to a specific industry. You want a tax ...

Does the cost of the Tram matter because it keeps going up. Article January 29, 2014 estimated at 60 million dollars. http://www.railwayage.com/index.php/passenger/light-rail/baton-rouge-crafts-streetcar-plan.html Article April 30, 2014 estimated at a 100 million dollars http://www.railwayage...
