Even though Congressman Frank Guinta comes from the Granite State, home to Mt. Washington, integrity is not his strong suit. Indeed,
Guinta lied about the $350,000 in 2010;
Guinta lied about the FEC exoneration the same year;
Guinta lied about the House Ethics Committee clearing him;
Guinta lied about Carol Shea-porter, whose seat in the House he commandeered;
and, of course, he lied to his Republican colleagues and, most importantly, the citizens of New Hampshire whose votes he solicited with the lies.
It's all around!!!
We can do it in the park.
We can do it on the beach.
We can stash our trash
Where'er we please!
'Cause we're the famed
Sea Island Company!
"Pollution control" has long been problematic because, as time passed, it became obvious that pollution, the flow of mostly man-made toxins into the environment, was not even lessened, never mind eliminated by what boiled down to little more than keeping records. So, it looked like the word "control" was deployed as a palliative to assuage the concerns of people who don't know any better than to object to the "necessary" discomforts of modern existence. That is, if the air is to be "conditioned" in summer and winter, some people (asthmatics) are going to find breathing harder.
That's the hopeful conclusion of Pierre Howard, former Lieutenant Governor of Georgia, in response to the news that a petition by Sea Island Acquisitions to park catamarans and other toys in the dunes was finally denied.
Actually, we thought the matter was settled back in February when the application was withdrawn and Dr. Fred Marland showed up at the hearing for naught. But, being a professional, he didn't miss an opportunity to make a point to an organization of which he'd once been the head.
Then, with almost no notice to the public, they were back in April.
Some people prefer to believe there are some most powerful people who are doing them in. I'm not sure why. I'm more inclined towards the proposition that the U.S. has a very long history depriving some group or other of their rights surreptitiously, by screwing them legally.
Perhaps that's the legacy of the explorers having arrived with charters in their hands. The Europeans have long relied on documents. And so it continues.
For those who don't like to follow links, here's the original:
What's so nice about liberals? You don't have to be constantly worried about what they're going to do next.
Liberals are not out to steal you blind. Liberals are generous, perhaps to a fault, and may perhaps give something to someone else that you yourself might want. But, they respect not just your private property, but your personal properties, aka rights.
Deprivation is not the liberals' schtick. Some may not be overly empathetic and may even distinguish between wants and needs, but they're not punitive and rationing is not a concern.
"Live and let live" is about as conservative as they get. And that's a fur piece from benign neglect -- an example of a mean-spirited euphemism if there ever was one, making a virtue our of a moral deficit.
Held at the remote, luxury Sea Island resort in Georgia, the 2015 American Enterprise Institute World Forum will bring together several potential GOP candidates and members of the business and media. Unlike the Koch's brothers Freedom Partners event in January, however, the World Forum will be closed to the press, but a guest list of invitees and speakers has been obtained by Bloomberg Politics.
A few days ago it was revealed that Dodd/Frank is indeed "working," not to break up mega banks, but to help them shrink to a more manageable size.
Helping things along has been Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York, who's been methodically going after fraudsters both large and small.
This time he's announcing a big catch. UPS, the United Parcel Service, competitor of the USPS, has been proved to be a recidivist when it comes to transporting contraband -- i.e. untaxed cigarettes or, as some people call them, "cancer sticks."
St. Simons Island, an unincorporated community in Glynn County does have a separate Island Planning Commission with some final authority. The community turnout (some 500 people) was not entirely prompted by this issue. The concern about plopping a gas station in the middle of a residential neighborhood was more intense. While the "highway commercial" designation of the parcel had been ignored for a long time, the fact that highways aren't attracting as much traffic as they used to seems to be prompting developers to bring highway enterprise right into where people live.
Part One deals mainly with re-zoning from one residential category to another. The applicant, sensing the attitude of the room, finally asked to have the matter deferred, to come back later with a more favorable proposal. So, individual members of the public were not heard. That's why this video is only 8 minutes (after editing) instead of the 30 minutes taken up by the next.
