In case you do not know who

slipped the city bank amendment into the budget bill,
the Huff post says that it was congressman K. Yoder
from Kansas. He seems not to answer his e-mail now.

Does anyone know how our

Senators voted on the budget bill?

Simple questions about Hillary

Yes, I think that she will run. Let's say she will get the nomination.
I don't know this for absolute certainty, but would this not the first time
that a wife of a former president is running for the highest office.

Many here say that she has been vetted or not. I don't think the past
will hurt her as much as the repugs probable claim that as a good wife
she will just be Bill's mouthpiece.

Would that stick?

With this new report out,

which should be abhorrent for every decent American,

is Jebbie's run in danger?

A question concerning canned dog food

My poodle had a lot of loose stool. Coming to this site someone suggested

Taste of the Wild, and I chose Wetlands. That worked very well. Now I am being

informed that this company has production problems and this canned food will

not be available indefinitely. Can anyone suggest a good replacement?

The Rev. Sharpton indicated

a national march on Dec.13th.
How will we know about our localities?
I certainly want to participate.

Any ideas?

Is it now the norm

to test only the victim for drugs and not the shooter? If I
remember correctly Zimmerman was not tested either.

I have wondered whether in both cases this was omitted on purpose.

This may be a different proposal for 2016

As we have seen in this last election there is a huge difference between voting for
candidates and voting for/against issues.

We don't know what will happen in 2 years, but from January on we can expect all
the worst from the repugs in Congress.

So why not concentrate on issues they hate, but the people like, to get started on
amendments or laws in states to be put on the ballot in 2016.

How about equal pay for equal work? Minimum pay increases, food for children in schools?

You may have better proposals than those including, if at all possible, rejection of
citizens against United. That way we adhere to the "tenthers", yet if passed in many
different states send a strong message.

A possible option?

In my state we have voting by mail,

which is nice. However, considering the news that the NC electronic machines are screwed up, what about the scanners, which the general voter does not even see? Does anyone know about those going "awry"?
