Chuks,

I believe I understand why you were so prone to use up my BRC Bar Card while I was absent....it is your reading comprehension Squire that lets you down.

Any idjit would understand I wiz suggesting Lyman and 11Fan were far outnumbered by the opposition...much as were those Texicans and Coon Killers at the Alamo.

Granted, you are correct about the absence of the back door....but then most Gallantry is situational isn't it.

Red face You Done Let The Cat Outta The Bag!

Rural California is quite nice. I live in a town of seventeen hundred souls, most are reasonable. From my base, I can be surfing, skiing, or sky diving within an hours drive. I can visit culture, or barbecue in the country. The countryside is similar to Alpine Switzerland, and the water sports are X rated.
As some PPRuNe posts are picked up by the internet, this one has gone completely viral, particularly in San Francisco and the LA basin (minus Orange County where folks are happy). Every realtor has gotten a copy and passed it on to their developer friends, lots of fax and cell phone activity with investors.
- Google is interested now in doing their new street level map which provides depth in the views of the entire area which had been poorly covered.
- YouTube is asking for photos, please? Color photos are preferred.
- The WSJ is planning an article for their Friday edition's Real Estate Section.
- Two major home developers are vying to be the first ones in the area and are rushing to complete their Section 8 housing plans for approval.
- That little quaint airport used for sky diving, it will get a lot closer as soon as the pay-as-you go 6 lane highway is built. You will need an EZ-Pass sensor on your windshield to pay the toll fees by credit card, no toll booths, automation, you know. Oh, and that airport is where the new Mega-Walmart is going to be located.
- Of course there will be new shopping malls, movie theaters, bars and restaurants and big schools to go with the new housing developments.
- Banks? Oh, there will be lots of banks to keep your valuables and store your money.
- Sequoia Foundation (a liberal think tank) has been looking for the ideal location for their new campus, and are now excited to have found it without the need for a search committee!
- There is great interest in LA & SF, folks want to have a country home or two, one to rent out of course.
As a local car dealer said, "The eggs are larger and cheaper in the country".

Oh, well, sometimes the best kept secrets are kept secret....

Notable Platform Issues:
Favored legislation outlawing corporate contributions to presidential,
vice-presidential and congressional campaigns

Even the godless get their prayers answered

So the best wishes of MSM and their shills (Matthews et al) have come true. Isaac is now a true hurricane, ready for the split screen prime time.

Well, there's this dickwad.

Samuel L. Jackson on Monday tweeted it was "unfair" that Tropical Storm Isaac had spared the GOP convention in Tampa and appeared to be heading for New Orleans.

Jackson said in a profanity-filled tweet that he was "not understanding God's plan" given the fact that the storm was not disrupting the Republican gathering.

Winner Winner, Chicken Diner

Mitt Romney officially wins enough delegates to be nominated. So far, 1339 for Mitt, 142 for others including Ron Paul and Rick Santorum. 1144 were needed to win.

There is much more value in seeing New Orleans flood while the GOP convenes, to the media and other Dem shills than if the convention was cancelled.

Remember Ayers. Never let a crisis...

Was there ever any doubt? I am interested in hearing Ann Romney's address tonight. She is a very nice and believable lady. It will confirm, or not, the right Romney has been nominated for President.....

Indeed, she is delightful. Watched the interview yesterday with both of them.

As for the schedule for events, for those who don't know it yet.

Tonight the ones to watch this evening are Rick Santorum, Scott Walker, Nikki Haley, Chris Christie and closing with Ann Romney. Should be great.

Well, OK, wasn't necessary. Yours was from the Blaze and it has a little different twist.

Let's see if your link from The Blaze works here. I have them bookmarked.

In fact, a lot of intelligent and successful Women speaking at the Republican National Convention so far.

Next week at the Democratic National Convention, plan on seeing women like that school punch Sandra Fluke looking for free handouts of condoms.

Artur Davis, the former 2008 Obama Election Campaign Co-Chairman (but now a Republican) just gave a wonderful speech in the Republication National Convention tonight.

He ended it with this:

Boeing just recognized by Governor Nikki Haley at the RNC. She praised their courage to open a new plant in South Carolina and create thousands of new jobs.

President Obama and his thugs sued to try to stop it.

Obama lost.

So let's look at Federal Taxes: for every dollar paid to the Feds CA gets 78c back; Florida 97c back; and Oklahoma $1.36c back. What a bunch of freeloaders...! Disgusting little people...how anti-American. Why do these people hate America so much..?

Federal Taxes paid/received for each State

Anybody else notice a correlation between Federal subsidies back to States and IQ/Obesity..? I'll do a more in depth survey focusing on southern states soon.
