My favorite burger place in town! Go for the "Spicy Southerner" YUM
I went to dinner tonight and passed by the scene of the accident, where police had the road blocked off and marked. They were out there measuring and reassessing the situation as the officer on the scene made a bad call. If you would go to the scene you would see that there is no legal justification for attempting to pass another vehicle on this short street. There is maybe 50 feet from the edge of the street where they turned to the next stop sign. They have the collision point marked on the street and it is maybe 15 feet after they would have turned. The right edge of the street is extremely uneven, and would not have been a suitable to ride on which is why he moved further into the lane. She was following too closely and was negligent. I feel sorry for this young driver because she has to live with the knowledge that she killed a man, but this was involuntary manslaughter. I am shocked that the police officer on the scene was willing to list this as his fault. Go to the scene and you will realize that there could be no way for a vehicle to make a legal pass on this tiny section of street.
How is it that believing someone has control over their desires and choices translate into catering
into a belief that people are inherently lazy and ignorant?
Whether or not you believe that a homosexual can be "cured" or not, that statement doesn't even make sense. You just like to hear yourself talk.
What gives you the right to say that someone who is gay is obligated to vote a certain way? I find this notion offensive. As a woman who votes primarily Republican (my deviations are only to vote libertarian), I have been told that I am stupid to vote this way and that pro-choice issues are supposed to be my primary reasoning for choosing a candidate.
There are many aspects to the Republican Party's platform that a person may find appealing other than defense - individual & fiscal responsibility, state's rights, and the virtues of freedom to name a few. I encourage everyone to read the Republican Creed and Oath.
I and many other Republicans feel it is time to reform our party and return to the truths stated in the creed. I applaud Mr. Smith's prescience in realizing that a reformed Republican party is ultimately a more suitable direction for the protection of American Individualism and his own lifestyle choices.
