Wilder, if you stopped buying the food produced with illegal immigrant labor in this country, you would come close to starving to death. Do you understand that?
I think people who do not want these young people to attend public universities are short sighted. First of all, they were mostly raised in this country and the country has already invested a lot of money in their education. When you realize that many people born in this country do not qualify to enter some of these universities, it is a real accomplish to have the accreditation to be admitted. Secondly, with the investment in these young adults, it would be nuts to send them to their native countries and let those countries benefit from the investment already in them. Lastly, if they are allowed to stay, the country will benefit most if they are as educated as they can be. Remember, their parents brought them here and the children had no say in coming. Now that they are productive adults, why punish them?
I believe that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii but it does not matter where he was born. His mother was a citizen of the United States and any child born of an American citizen is a citizen by birth. That is the law of the land.
The Birthers have no arugment and they demonstrate their ignorance when they claim otherwise. As for Obama's religion, I remember during the campaign, how these same jerks were upset about Barack Obama's minister Jeremiah Wright. If he was a Muslim, he would not have had a minister in the first place.
Being against someone, or against that person's policies, is one thing, but making up lies is another. The Birthers need to knock it off.
I have lived in the country most of my life and probably have passed hundreds of snakes without knowing it. So far I have not been attacked by a snake and I have not attacked a snake. I believe, if you leave them alone, they will almost always leave you alone too.
I'm sure this will help Tennessee tourism. You should not drive a car under the influence of alcohol and should not mix alcohol with guns either. Does anyone really thing that someone would go into a bar with a gun and sit there drinking ginger ale? I don't
Since I live in Georgia, I ought to stay out of this fight but I agree with the governor, guns and alcohol do not mix. What nut would want guns in a bar where some patrons will over indulge and be on the edge of common sense? I think the legislatures of Georgia and Tennessee are nuts. It is time to vote them out. In Georgia, the legislature wants citizens to be able to take guns into the airport. How stupid is that? Now in Tennessee they want guns in bars. How stupid is that? I vote for common sense!
I think the funds from tags go to the state general fund and the expenses for making tags come from a designated fun for that purpose. So it does not matter that the cost of making a tag is cents and the tax payer pays big bucks. The money to make tags comes from one fund and the money from the tags goes into another.
That said, the state needs to get its act together and make sure the tags are available when needed because they are a revenue plus for the state.
I believe, for most people, the yearbook is tucked away and forgotten about. The signing day and perhaps the week after that the books are hauled around. Then once taken home at the end of the school year, they have little value. So many things that are important in high school, become less so as a person builds their adult life. In time, what happened in high school, becomes very unimportant. For example, a person's Grade Point Average and SAT scores are very important when applying to college but once a person has one semester under their belts and the grades to go with it, high school records no longer matter. Even when transferring to another college, high school grades will not be requested. All that matters is what have you done lately. Once employed after college, your work performance is what matters and the college you attended no longer matters. It goes on-and-on like that thoughout life. Now that I'm 66 years old, that old yearbook is little more than a dust collector.
No seat belt and thrown from the vehicle. Why don't people learn?
This is a case that never should have gone to trial and there ought to be an investigation into why it went this far and ended up costing this poor lady $500,000 to defend herself.
The D.A. ought to have to explain what happened and he ought to think about looking for another line of work.
The whole mess stinks.
