   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!!

   July 30, 2014, 12:43:08 PM  arejayavery: lol

   July 30, 2014, 12:43:22 PM  arejayavery: i grew up in this town and could care less about what I LOOK like

   July 30, 2014, 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 

   July 30, 2014, 12:43:54 PM  arejayavery: asked questions than get a job where you dont get paid from the public money...

   July 30, 2014, 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

   July 30, 2014, 12:44:37 PM  arejayavery: and sorry but i will never do anything someone tells me that hides behind a fake name or proxy... 

   July 30, 2014, 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

   July 30, 2014, 03:23:23 PM  arejayavery: founded on fierce competition and debate that questioning anything or having a different opinion is immediate grounds for

   July 30, 2014, 03:23:34 PM  arejayavery: trying to picture someone as disgruntled etc

   Yesterday at 12:50:34 PM  guest-0bec: Kim was doing a great job with the freedom she had...

   Yesterday at 12:50:37 PM  guest-0bec: or

   Yesterday at 12:51:30 PM  guest-0bec: which makes sense when the selected businesses are long term acquintaces [sic] of the director of the EDC

   Yesterday at 12:52:07 PM  guest-0bec: I think the guest was saying you were taking a shot at Kim and the EDC, but then you say she was doing a great job

   Yesterday at 12:52:09 PM  guest-0bec: Which is it?

   Yesterday at 12:52:39 PM  guest-0bec: The guest didn't say it, but I will.

   Yesterday at 12:52:58 PM  guest-0bec: Questioning and having a different opinion is AWESOME.  Truly it is.

   Yesterday at 12:53:14 PM  guest-0bec: But your is always so misinformed or completely uninformed most of the time

   Yesterday at 12:53:31 PM  guest-0bec: Yet you make accusations which you can't back up, then when someone calls you on it...

   Yesterday at 12:53:53 PM  guest-0bec: "Well, I didn't know.  I was just throwing it out there. But hey, at least I was asking questions."

   Yesterday at 12:54:19 PM  guest-0bec: I call bullcrap on that.  That's just irresponsible and it doesn't help anything.

   Yesterday at 12:54:24 PM  guest-0bec: But that's just my take

   Today at 04:09:10 AM  guest-07a2: Is the school system headed in the right direction??  Lots of changes. 

   Today at 04:14:07 AM  guest-07a2: Losing Holland and zemlicka was sad
