    Mike,
    ]
    No, I do not wish to take credit for the list. I meant to include "author unknown" but it was late and I forgot. As far as the list, each person should check it out for themselves. You will find with research if the statement is true or not. I remember many of the events as they happened. As far as the last statement of hope and change, it is NOT working out for me. And if Obama Care goes into full effect, my hope will be end as the type of medical care I am currently needing will be unavailable. If the President's record is not worth discussing, what does that say about the President?

    Pit bull headlines are getting old. We know the breed and that attacks are common. Something like "Man mauled to death by toy terrier" would an interesting read however.

    Most people believe in a god. Many create god in "their own image" of what god should be. They create what their god accepts and approves. They go to church for entertainment, concerts and games, not for worship. With this mindset, homosexual marriage is considered progress. For those who accept the bible as the word of the actual God, we are in subjection to him, not him to us. We gather to devote our lives to him and we worship him, not go for our own self gratification. People that believe in this way will not accept homosexual marriage because it is an abomination to God. They use the bible as the source. The other side uses "Well. I feel..." as their source. I am not advocating hostility toward homosexuals, rather explaining why I will never accept their lifestyle as normal..

    The only problem with " armed 28 year old male followed a 17 year old unarmed male" is how did Zimmerman know Martin was not armed? And how did Martin know Zimmerman was armed? Obviously decisions were made that night in ignorance.

    Many times a company is responsible not because of safety planning, but because of work demands placed on the employee. If the employee feels hopelessly swamped with work, he may choose to skip some safety procedures to save time. While the employee is really the responsible party, the company supplied the catalyst. Most accidents are caused by a failure to follow procedures. The only real accident is when equipment fails due to an unknown defect that could not be found during normal maintenance. Again, the equipment must be properly maintained or it becomes a safety violation and not a defect.

    It appears that some think the person that has to use the handicapped space is getting off easy. I am here to say that if the person parking in that space could trade the space far the most distant space and comfortably walk to the store, they would make the change in a heartbeat!

    So I guess all the employers of people living in Victoria County will give raises equal to the employee's increase in taxes, right? After all, it is the businesses that will gain so much from the new tech center. Yeah right...Sounds like the Cat plant should have paid to build the center. Isn't that is why they are building it next door?

    An old comic comes to mind about this. Two men were standing outside of a shopping center when they saw a car drive into a handicapped parking space. The driver got out of the car, stretched and sprinted to the back of the car. The two men were so angry, they ran over to the driver and started beating him to the ground. While they were hitting him, they kept yelling about him parking in the handicapped spot. The driver yelled back, OK OK I'll move, but please let me get my mom into her wheel chair and into the medical clinic before she is late for her appointment!

    Anybody that would park in a handicapped spot has obviously not had a child or parent or friend that is disabled. These spots are a big help for the handicapped individual as well as the care taker.

    I remember back in 1961 when John F. Kennedy was running for president, there was a great fear of him being Catholic. It was believed that he would hold allegiance to Rome verses the US. Didn't happen. Romney being Mormon would not be an issue either. It is his views on the constitution and the republic for which he should stand that is most important.
