LOL! Good luck with that.
Has this ever happened before?
We need for Congress to ante up the money to nip this in the bud. We have been financially ignoring public health in this country and the good people in health departments and the CDC are hanging on by their fingernails to protect us. We have Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya virus in the wings to cause a disaster. (Apparently we don't worry about the epidemic in Puerto Rico). The US needs to get serious about this and appropriate the money CDC and the NIAID need to manage these with 21st century tactics before its too late. But I guess we can always finger point when catastrophe hits.
Everyone was run out of tent city. Some given bus tickets. The rest of us...still in the same situation. They just pushed everyone into North Charleston. No longer the city's problem. I don't know one person that was actually housed.
Don't believe it - Charleston's not friendly enough to be a party town.
Only a mere nod after beating out FSU? Bruh, we won, top 15, lets party.
No surprise here on Graham and his "warming" to a tyrant, who is becoming more of a "sheep in wolf's clothing" second-by-second. You know the mantra....support the GOP candidate "tooth and nail" even though he is really standing for the LACK of freedoms, not unlike TSARs of bygone eras.
The GOP states they support freedoms, but their definition doesn't include freedoms for everyone, but only freedoms that support control over certain people's lives:
"Freedom FROM women's rights", "Freedom FROM immigrants", "Freedom FROM the LGBT community", "Freedom FROM pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FROM the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FOR personal and corporate greed". The GOP embraces the straight, rich, caucasian (Hello out there...the GOP is using minorities along with poor and less informed supporters to collect their bounty), christian male that helps to feather their political and financial nests.
Opposite of the spectrum is the "Love thy neighbor" (Jesus' words, not mine) type of freedom supporter.
"Freedom FOR women's rights", "Freedom FOR immigrants", "Freedom FOR the LGBT community", "Freedom FOR pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FOR the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FROM personal and corporate greed".
I've had the pleasure of traveling across the US, Latin America, and Europe for business for the past 15 years. My girlfriend yearns for the day that we live in another country for a few years, but in my own way, I feel that I've seen enough of it to satisfy me. Everyone is different. Be yourself, challenge yourself, and question why you are envious of others, but don't ignore what makes you happy because you wonder why you are unlike others around you.
People do stuff like travel at different times of their lives - it's like having kids - some do it early some do it late and some don't have any - FB only shows the highlights
Your story is incredible. Your story telling is impeccable. I loved it. If it were a book it would be a page turner for sure. Thank you.
