    World Cup 2018

    Do your boss and employees flop over and writhe on the ground when you come within a few feet of them then get up and cry if someone doesn't issue you a warning for their acting skills? 'If you're not crying, you're not trying.' That's world-class soccer in a nutshell right there.

    Hey, now. That's not funny...only because you beat me by 55 minutes.
  3. But only government entities can levy taxes on the general public. Also, for all I know, libraries may also hold elections for seats on their board of directors as well, but they aren't required to be held on a public ballot.
  4. Actually Jay, they're not. What they are saying is that the band, as a school-sponsored organization, is not able to take part in those events. Should all the students leave their band uniforms at home, take their own instruments and go as an independent group that isn't affiliated with the school, they are free to do so.
  5. But the school is an extension of the local government. They're funded by public tax dollars and run by elected officials. A library also doesn't have the authority to set and levy taxes.
  6. That's a good point but to go a little further, government also ought not to be caught up in what may be seen as potentially endorsing religion either. Using federal/state/local government dollars to fund the school then having the school conduct activities by/with a religious group implies a preference toward that particular sect. As long as the religious group simply sponsors the event, without imposing prayer/religious services, etc., there wouldn't be an issue.

    a&j dairy treat

    I think that the memories and experiences of those things will forever be the missing ingredients. Anyone can copy a recipe, but they can't duplicate your memories of the past.

    Tourist Ideas for D.C.

    Never been, Petee? You can spend an entire day on the Mall itself and never really see everything there. I had the opportunity to spend a in D.C. a few years ago and still didn't feel like I was able to take it all in. Enjoy.
  9. Nope. If someone's going to write something, they aren't going to be dissuaded by a delay. It's been a fact for as long as humans have been around - stupid people do stupid things. The difference is that now they can put it on display almost universally instead of simply locally.

    Bobby Kennedy

    Nope. Hot dogs.

    Bobby Kennedy

    Certainly. Because we all know that ANYONE would have got off with a suspended sentence for leaving the scene of a fatal accident while failing to report the same.

    Squirrels!! This is a first

    Make sure it's not implanted with a chip first. HAHAHAHA
  13. Before you get too entrenched in using this as a reference point, you'll want to keep in mind that it's an opinion piece. Whenever I see something with that tag, I'm terribly skeptical about the author's interpretation of the numbers and exactly how they choose to portray them. If you want to see an example of that, take a gander at one of those Nugenix commercials with Frank Thomas. They go to great lengths to promote the benefits and boldly make the claim that it's key ingredient has been clinically "researched". Unfortunately, there's a big difference between "researched" and "proven".

    Gadfly flag

    Nope. Although Texas is one of the handful of states that offer it as a license plate.

    The NFL Bends the Knee

    I think you might want to stay away from the internet. Or, at the very least, check what you're saying before you post it. Tebow knelt many times during his short career...never during the national anthem. As to the other claim about the kneeling having nothing to do with the flag, I think you might want to go back and connect the dots about the flag and its connection to both active and retired veterans who have served under it. Then you should read Kaepernick's quote... "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
