   July 18, 2014, 02:55:56 PM  guest-6294: Is there one (or more) in particular that we SHOULD recognize?

   July 18, 2014, 02:58:18 PM  guest-6294: Hunt, Guerrero, McClane, Criswell, Johnson, Myers, Chitty, and Woods - were all familiar sounding

   July 18, 2014, 02:58:34 PM  guest-6294: ... to me. Some, I know why.

   July 19, 2014, 08:38:55 AM  guest-07a2: Illegal immigration.....thoughts??  Mine?  We can't reward those who break the law. Period. 

   July 19, 2014, 08:39:42 AM  guest-07a2: A hard stance, but illegal is illegal. 

   July 19, 2014, 11:00:39 AM  arejayavery: yeah well it used to be illegal for women to vote and have rights too.. thankfully good people dont mind taking risks

   July 19, 2014, 11:00:59 AM  arejayavery: and unless you are 50% more Native American your opinion about illegal or legla immigration is founded 

   July 19, 2014, 11:01:14 AM  arejayavery: in arrogance ignorance and quite possiby subconscience bigotry

   July 19, 2014, 11:34:54 AM  arejayavery: http://billmoyers.com/2014/07/18/child-migrants-have-been-coming-to-america-alone-since-ellis-island/

   July 19, 2014, 04:41:14 PM  guest-07a2: Arejay, I expected no less of a response from you.  Liberalism is a disease for which there is no cure. 

   July 20, 2014, 05:58:03 PM  arejayavery: sadly selfishness is truly the only disease there is no cure for... dont forget the land we live on for THOUSANDS 

   July 20, 2014, 05:58:28 PM  arejayavery: of years was inhabited by people that truly understood how to share and compromise as well as self govern... excess was not a

   July 20, 2014, 05:58:53 PM  arejayavery: problem as it was foolish... these days excess is a badge of honor...  and if im sick i hope im terminal :)

   July 20, 2014, 08:15:54 PM  guest-a9fd: Frankly, to compare the immigration of the Pilgrims to the immigration problems of today is foolishness

   July 20, 2014, 08:16:32 PM  guest-a9fd: Completely different world circumstances, etc.

   July 20, 2014, 08:16:57 PM  guest-a9fd: But hey, whatever makes you feel better to completely deflect from actually giving a real answer to the question

   July 20, 2014, 08:21:35 PM  guest-a9fd: Immigration rules/laws exist for a reason.

   July 20, 2014, 08:21:47 PM  guest-a9fd: To choose to not enforce our own laws is treason, pure and simple

   July 20, 2014, 08:22:45 PM  guest-a9fd: However, the first person to step up and offer to adopt one of these children, then I will listen to you above everyone else

   July 20, 2014, 08:22:52 PM  guest-a9fd: otherwise, it's bluster

   July 20, 2014, 08:23:26 PM  guest-a9fd: So step up, Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Partier, Libertyrian

   July 20, 2014, 08:23:46 PM  guest-a9fd: Adoption rules don't care what political party or preference you have

   July 20, 2014, 08:24:02 PM  guest-a9fd: So truly make it about the "children" than a bunch of political crap

   July 20, 2014, 08:24:44 PM  guest-a9fd: Admittedly, I haven't read much on the subject because everyone is so slanted...but, what percentage of these "children" are

   July 20, 2014, 08:24:54 PM  guest-a9fd: under the age of, let's start at 15

   July 20, 2014, 11:03:50 PM  guest-07a2: If I break the law, I'm subject to penalties, monetary and incarceration, or both. I'm not rewarded, that we know. 

   July 21, 2014, 11:35:15 AM  guest-0bec: It's a very hard question.  If you accept all these refugees, then you open the flood gates.

   July 21, 2014, 11:35:35 AM  guest-0bec: At some point, the system becomes overwhelmed.   

   July 21, 2014, 12:45:26 PM  guest-0550: would comparing gun laws today versus back when the constitution was created foolish as well?

   July 21, 2014, 12:47:48 PM  guest-0550: open carry movement....yea or no?

   July 21, 2014, 01:12:29 PM  guest-0bec: I wouldn't exercise open carry very often, bu the idea that I have a right to defend myself is timeless

   July 21, 2014, 02:10:19 PM  arejayavery: you cant compare gun laws to the ones back then because that doesnt fit in to a9fd's logic... even though i used the exact 

   July 21, 2014, 02:10:34 PM  arejayavery: same logic about immigration and he used it to try and discredit it..

   July 23, 2014, 10:48:11 AM  guest-617d: I dont go to many council meetings, although I should.   

   July 26, 2014, 10:28:51 AM  guest-07a2: What are the top 3 hit buttons affecting Forneyites right now?

   July 26, 2014, 10:29:24 AM  guest-07a2: I would say public safety, roads, and development

   July 26, 2014, 02:31:11 PM  arejayavery: imo Roads is a huge one especially in the older parts of town... most of the new neighborhoods

   July 26, 2014, 02:31:21 PM  arejayavery: have MUD or extra tax districts that should handle roads.

   July 26, 2014, 02:31:41 PM  arejayavery: the water dept has issues as they have random billing errors that they seem to not want to acknowledge

   July 26, 2014, 02:32:07 PM  arejayavery: If you aint Safe in Forney than that means you brought it to your door about 99% of the time

   July 28, 2014, 10:42:47 AM  guest-3209: new business

   July 28, 2014, 04:11:06 PM  arejayavery: personally id really like to see the EDC have a much more open and contest oriented approach to subsidizing spaces downtown

   July 28, 2014, 04:11:31 PM  arejayavery: I think they approach they have taken is great but if you publicized it more you may could attract some much more qualified 

   July 28, 2014, 04:11:33 PM  arejayavery: franchises

   July 28, 2014, 05:32:02 PM  guest-1cf2: I'm not for franchises. I don't think their ideal IS franchises. --- 

   July 28, 2014, 05:32:27 PM  guest-1cf2: ... unless you mean that word only in the strictest 'business' sense

   July 28, 2014, 05:33:36 PM  guest-1cf2: I think OOAK/unique may be the preferred entity

   July 28, 2014, 05:34:43 PM  guest-1cf2: to enhance tourism

   July 29, 2014, 04:07:42 PM  arejayavery: i was using franchises in the sense of smaller more regional buisnesses not ones that people who have put there 20 years in 

   July 29, 2014, 04:08:00 PM  arejayavery: at a slave job and can invest to buy and owners manual to start up a sandwich shot..

   July 29, 2014, 04:08:16 PM  arejayavery: the main problem with the EDC giving away money is it was all very hush hush.. sure there was meetings 

   July 29, 2014, 04:08:30 PM  arejayavery: etc but there was no publicity about it all.. which makes sense when the selected businesses

   July 29, 2014, 04:08:42 PM  arejayavery: are long term acquintances of the director of the EDC...

   July 29, 2014, 04:16:36 PM  guest-3c6b: hmmmm

   July 29, 2014, 09:08:17 PM  guest-a9fd: such sour grapes

   July 29, 2014, 09:08:38 PM  guest-a9fd: Get off your arse, make some connections, get involved and quit your bitchin

   July 29, 2014, 09:08:57 PM  guest-a9fd: It's ridiculous the way you throw around innuendo

   July 29, 2014, 09:09:14 PM  guest-a9fd: Go ahead and tell us AGAIN how you write checks to support local stuff

   July 29, 2014, 09:09:18 PM  guest-a9fd: That's cool and I applaud it

   July 29, 2014, 09:09:41 PM  guest-a9fd: But **** if you don't need to shutup with your conspiracy theories

   July 29, 2014, 09:09:56 PM  guest-a9fd: It gets old and makes you look like a freaking kook

   July 29, 2014, 10:56:06 PM  guest-07a2: Arejay, I appreciate the candid feedback, although I disagree most if the time. Kudos for open and honest rconversation!!

   Yesterday at 12:43:08 PM  arejayavery: lol

   Yesterday at 12:43:22 PM  arejayavery: i grew up in this town and could care less about what I LOOK like

   Yesterday at 12:43:43 PM  arejayavery: i will get involved when I feel like it is time for me... and sorry but if you dont want to be critiqued by the public or be 

   Yesterday at 12:43:54 PM  arejayavery: asked questions than get a job where you dont get paid from the public money...

   Yesterday at 12:44:13 PM  arejayavery: and i dont write near as big of checks as other people around here hence the reason im looked at as a kook

   Yesterday at 12:44:37 PM  arejayavery: and sorry but i will never do anything someone tells me that hides behind a fake name or proxy... 

   Yesterday at 03:23:01 PM  arejayavery: and its really not sour grapes.. I think Kim was doing a great job with the freedom she had...  its sad that in a country

   Yesterday at 03:23:23 PM  arejayavery: founded on fierce competition and debate that questioning anything or having a different opinion is immediate grounds for

   Yesterday at 03:23:34 PM  arejayavery: trying to picture someone as disgruntled etc
