Twenty Peaceful Minutes
guest-6294: Is there one (or more) in particular that we SHOULD recognize?
guest-6294: Hunt, Guerrero, McClane, Criswell, Johnson, Myers, Chitty, and Woods - were all familiar sounding
guest-6294: ... to me. Some, I know why.
guest-07a2: Illegal immigration.....thoughts?? Mine? We can't reward those who break the law. Period.
guest-07a2: A hard stance, but illegal is illegal.
arejayavery: yeah well it used to be illegal for women to vote and have rights too.. thankfully good people dont mind taking risks
arejayavery: and unless you are 50% more Native American your opinion about illegal or legla immigration is founded
arejayavery: in arrogance ignorance and quite possiby subconscience bigotry
guest-07a2: Arejay, I expected no less of a response from you. Liberalism is a disease for which there is no cure.
arejayavery: sadly selfishness is truly the only disease there is no cure for... dont forget the land we live on for THOUSANDS
arejayavery: of years was inhabited by people that truly understood how to share and compromise as well as self govern... excess was not a
arejayavery: problem as it was foolish... these days excess is a badge of honor... and if im sick i hope im terminal
guest-a9fd: Frankly, to compare the immigration of the Pilgrims to the immigration problems of today is foolishness
guest-a9fd: Completely different world circumstances, etc.
guest-a9fd: But hey, whatever makes you feel better to completely deflect from actually giving a real answer to the question
guest-a9fd: Immigration rules/laws exist for a reason.
guest-a9fd: To choose to not enforce our own laws is treason, pure and simple
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
guest-a9fd: otherwise, it's bluster
guest-a9fd: So step up, Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Partier, Libertyrian
guest-a9fd: Adoption rules don't care what political party or preference you have
guest-a9fd: So truly make it about the "children" than a bunch of political crap
guest-a9fd: Admittedly, I haven't read much on the subject because everyone is so slanted...but, what percentage of these "children" are
guest-a9fd: under the age of, let's start at 15
guest-07a2: If I break the law, I'm subject to penalties, monetary and incarceration, or both. I'm not rewarded, that we know.
guest-0bec: It's a very hard question. If you accept all these refugees, then you open the flood gates.
guest-0bec: At some point, the system becomes overwhelmed.
guest-0550: would comparing gun laws today versus back when the constitution was created foolish as well?
guest-0550: open carry movement....yea or no?
guest-0bec: I wouldn't exercise open carry very often, bu the idea that I have a right to defend myself is timeless
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
arejayavery: same logic about immigration and he used it to try and discredit it..
guest-617d: I dont go to many council meetings, although I should.
guest-07a2: What are the top 3 hit buttons affecting Forneyites right now?
guest-07a2: I would say public safety, roads, and development
arejayavery: imo Roads is a huge one especially in the older parts of town... most of the new neighborhoods
arejayavery: have MUD or extra tax districts that should handle roads.
arejayavery: the water dept has issues as they have random billing errors that they seem to not want to acknowledge
arejayavery: If you aint Safe in Forney than that means you brought it to your door about 99% of the time
guest-3209: new business
arejayavery: personally id really like to see the EDC have a much more open and contest oriented approach to subsidizing spaces downtown
arejayavery: I think they approach they have taken is great but if you publicized it more you may could attract some much more qualified
guest-1cf2: I'm not for franchises. I don't think their ideal IS franchises. ---
guest-1cf2: ... unless you mean that word only in the strictest 'business' sense
guest-1cf2: I think OOAK/unique may be the preferred entity
guest-1cf2: to enhance tourism
arejayavery: i was using franchises in the sense of smaller more regional buisnesses not ones that people who have put there 20 years in
arejayavery: at a slave job and can invest to buy and owners manual to start up a sandwich shot..
arejayavery: the main problem with the EDC giving away money is it was all very hush hush.. sure there was meetings
arejayavery: etc but there was no publicity about it all.. which makes sense when the selected businesses
arejayavery: are long term acquintances of the director of the EDC...
guest-a9fd: such sour grapes
guest-a9fd: Get off your arse, make some connections, get involved and quit your bitchin
guest-a9fd: It's ridiculous the way you throw around innuendo
guest-a9fd: Go ahead and tell us AGAIN how you write checks to support local stuff
guest-a9fd: That's cool and I applaud it
guest-a9fd: But **** if you don't need to shutup with your conspiracy theories
guest-a9fd: It gets old and makes you look like a freaking kook
guest-07a2: Arejay, I appreciate the candid feedback, although I disagree most if the time. Kudos for open and honest rconversation!!
arejayavery: i grew up in this town and could care less about what I LOOK like
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
arejayavery: asked questions than get a job where you dont get paid from the public money...
arejayavery: and i dont write near as big of checks as other people around here hence the reason im looked at as a kook
arejayavery: and sorry but i will never do anything someone tells me that hides behind a fake name or proxy...
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
arejayavery: founded on fierce competition and debate that questioning anything or having a different opinion is immediate grounds for
arejayavery: trying to picture someone as disgruntled etc
