This Poconos Property Manager Helped My Family Keep Our Vacation Home—Until Pennsylvania Shut Her Down
Post Date: 2017-07-20 06:52:50 by Deckard
Arrowhead Lake is an idyllic little community in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains. For my family, it's the perfect vacation spot. We swim and canoe at the lake, hike and pick berries, roast marshmallows, and dance at the summer bonfires held at the community's main pavilion. It feels like a much-needed break from the fast pace of modern life, and we always come home feeling renewed and refreshed. We love it so much that after a few years vacationing there as renters, we decided to buy a home in the community. In order to swing this financially, we have to rent the place out when we are not there, like many vacation homeowners do. Initially, we were having trouble making that ...

The New York Times of Sunday July 16 brought chilling new evidence that Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions, in direct contradiction of the position stated by Donald J Trump when he was a candidate, plans a federal crackdown on marijuana in the 29 states that have legalized some form of its use. At a campaign rally in Sparks, Nevada on Oct. 29, 2015, Trump said: The marijuana thing is such a big thing. I think medical should happen right? Dont we agree? I think so. And then I really believe we should leave it up to the states. It should be a state situation
but I believe that the legalization of marijuana other than for medical because I think ...

You may be aware that cops can simply steal yes, thats exactly the correct word cash found on your person or in your vehicle, in the course of a traffic stop, say solely on account of it being an excessive amount.Excessive being entirely up to them to define.It could be $10,000 or $1,000. There is no specific amount of cash defined by statute that crosses a legal threshold. Thus, one cannot know ahead of time not to carry, say, $5,000 but $500 is ok.It is enough that a government worker with a gun considers whatever cash you are found to have in your possession excessive.And these armed government workers can ...

Big Military Spending Boost Threatens Our Economy and Security
Post Date: 2017-07-19 20:44:49 by hondo68
On Friday the House overwhelmingly approved a massive increase in military spending, passing a $696 billion National Defense Authorization bill for 2018. President Trumps request already included a huge fifty or so billion dollar spending increase, but the Republican-led House found even that to be far too small. They added another $30 billion to the bill for good measure. Even President Trump, in his official statement, expressed some concern over spending in the House-passed bill.According to the already weak limitations on military spending increases in the 2011 sequestration law, the base military budget for 2018 would be $72 billion more than allowed.Dont ...

Former Speaker of the House Let Out of Prison Early After Raping Children
Post Date: 2017-07-19 14:40:56 by Deckard
In April of last year, Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the House and admitted child rapist, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after he was caught paying his victims to keep quiet. However, he was just released on Tuesday two months before finishing his already insultingly lenient sentence. Hastert was sentenced, not for raping children, but for illegally structuring bank transactions in an effort to cover up his sexual abuse of young boys. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Hastert, 75, is now under the supervision of a residential re-entry management field office based in Chicago, according to Bureau of Prisons online records. That means he is likely at a halfway ...

Baltimore, MD It is a common theme among old episodes of COPS suspects getting arrested over drugs, saying, those arent mine. Many times they are lying. However, many times they are not. As a breaking body camera video out of Baltimore appears to show, cops have no problem planting drugs to arrest innocent people. FOX 45 has obtained body camera footage from a Baltimore police officer that shows him planting a clear baggy of drugs. The 90-second clip also catches his fellow officers standing there in approval as he hides the drugs. After hes seen planting the fake evidence, the crooked Baltimore cop and his cronies walk out of the alley, at which point ...

So the authorities quickly dropped the investigation and closed the case. ...

Trump threatens to change the course of American Christianity
Post Date: 2017-07-19 10:25:48 by Willie Green
If you want to understand white evangelicalism in the age of Trump, you need to know Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas. Jeffress is not a household name in the United States, known mainly in Southern Baptist circles. But he has recently gained national attention as a "court evangelical" - my term for a Christian who, like the attendants and advisers who frequented the courts of monarchs, seeks influence through regular visits to the White House. The court evangelicals are changing the religious landscape in the United States. The Trump presidency is only six months old, but it is already beginning to alter long-standing spiritual alignments. It seems as ...

Jeff Sessions Wants Police To Steal More From Civilians
Post Date: 2017-07-18 10:08:17 by Deckard
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is one of the worst things to happen to the United States since voters were forced to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Hes continuing to ramp up the failed war on drugs by insisting the police steal even more cash from the citizens they are supposed to protect and serve. There would be no orders if there were no order followers. But since we live in an increasingly oppressive police state, look for civil asset forfeiture (legalized theft by cops) to take a front-seat in Sessions beloved war on drugs. The Attorney General is demanding police start stealing more than they already do from ...
Ten Reasons Barack Obama Was America’s Worst President
Post Date: 2017-07-18 09:29:56 by IbJensen
Looking back over history, there have been numerous books and articles rating our United States presidents. Various criteria are considered along with the obvious subjective element. From the title, the reader knows whom I believe places last. From a biblically informed perspective there are ten reasons for the unfavorable ranking. Theyre listed following three disclaimers. 1. When Barack Obama came into office launching his fundamental transformation of America, I had a strong sense of foreboding, yet prayed for him daily, repeatedly affirmed his God-given gifts and spoke of him respectfully. 2. I tried to separate the person from his positions in evaluating our former ...

Delta tweets ... insults at Ann Coulter --- Still want to fly Delta?

Delta tweets insults at Ann Coulter. Still want to fly Delta? By Monica Showalter Columnist Ann Coulter is a tall woman, and apparently, she spent some time selecting the right sort of seat for a person who needs more legroom on frequent flights, perhaps to avoid deep-vein thrombosis, or perhaps to fly more comfortably. She spent the time and paid the extra money to get an aisle seat in an emergency row on a Delta flight, which would have done the job. For some reason, as the flight was boarding, the airline decided to move her seat to the window in the same row and seat a group of other passengers, perhaps because they had requested to be seated together. It might have ...

Starting Monday, tour pros will not be able to wear shirts with plunging necklines, leggings, or short skirts. LPGA President Vicki issued the new guidelines in an email, which quickly drew criticism from Teen Vogue magazine. "[W]e don't see why someone can't look professional in leggings," the magazine stated in an article on Sunday. "If anything, policing these women's bodies and clothes takes away from their professional accomplishments. And if the sport wants a positive image, body-shaming is not the way to get it." Golfer Paige Spiranac, who has been criticized for wearing revealing clothes on the course, also weighed in. Golf Digest excerpted the ...
