I personally am tired of having illegal immigrants driving in our country without auto insurance and I'm tired of them clogging up the emergency rooms with minor complaints that they should be going to a general practitioner for. Of course at the GP they have to pay and at the ER you and I pay for them. It all comes down to greed. If we had no illegal immigrant workforce...we would likely have immigrants entering the country legally to obtain the same jobs. I will add that a lot of illegal immigrants meet gruesome death in their attempts to sneak into our country...so in essence every employer that is willing to hire an illegal is playing a part in their deaths. We should all be ashamed.

As I recall, a number of years ago, laws changed and counties were able to decide how to handle incidents of marijuana possession under (4) ounces. Basically, if the person found to be in possession, lives in the county in which the offense occurs, has a valid ID and is not a juvenile, officers can issue a citation (ticket) and release the person. This did not minimize the overall severity of the offense but it does save a considerable amount of time and money. Counties are able to opt in or out of the program and Victoria County opted out.

Truer words have never been spoken. I have never been more disgusted with our political system than I am at this point. I always believed our country would eventually see a different system of government but I really believed it would be long after I was gone from this earth. I now believe it is likely to occur much sooner, most likely out of necessity. What we have now is clearly broken and for the most part ineffectual. Most of the politicians in Washington act more like children than adults...and I am talking about politicians from both parties.
I don't want someone in my family injured or killed by someone racing on our public streets. I personally am pleased local law enforcement is addressing this matter. More power to them. I would be pleased to serve on a jury if these arrests are contested.
A (3) vote margin should trigger a recount automatically even without a petition.
I'm no Obama fan and I'm certainly no Obama apologist...but this really applies to every president we have had for many, many years.
Amos and Andy.
The atmosphere was fine...but I never found the food to be all that good. Never had any problems with the service.
Against...but not surprised.

There is no doubt what you say has merit. The problem is, there is no way to change this type of owner. That said though, these dogs themselves can be much like people with bi-polar disorder...one moment fine next not so much, and they don't just bite and release like other dogs, they latch on and maul a victim. Therefore, the only reasonably sure way to protect innocent people from these dogs and their "owners", is to do something about the breed.
