ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!
Very interesting post on online horoscope reading. Here is another great post on Aries and Taurus Zodiac Signs by Ashok Prajapati.
>Not understand why they can't adopt a pet when their current ones are unvaccinated and unaltered, and they're actively opposed to spay/neuter.
There is research that says neutering a dog before 2 years increases their chances for tearing ligaments and being injured. I would prefer to rescue a dog, but it sucks that you can't make an educated decision about the dogs health if you want to rescue. That being said, I understand why they do it. Too many dog owners are way too irresponsible.
Hopefully he has enough sense not to repeat the TSPLOST debacle.

"Call me crazy, but I really don't think the U.S. Navy would give the captain's keys for a nuclear submarine to the person you described."
As you suggested, you're crazy. Carter was no Captain - he was a Lieutenant and was in training on shore. He was in the USN nuclear program for 15 months.
From US Naval History, "When Admiral Hyman G. Rickover (then a captain) started his program to create nuclear powered submarines, Carter wanted to join the program and was interviewed by Rickover. On 1 June 1952, Carter was promoted to Lieutenant. Selected by Rickover, Carter was detached on 16 October 1952 from K-1 for duty with the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, Division of Reactor Development in Schenectady, New York. From 3 November 1952 to 1 March 1953, he served on temporary duty with the Naval Reactors Branch, U. S. Atomic Energy Commission, Washington, DC to assist "in the design and development of nuclear propulsion plants for naval vessels." From 1 March to 8 October, Carter was preparing to become the engineering officer for the nuclear power plant to be placed in USS Seawolf (SSN 575), one of the first submarines to operate on atomic power. He assisted in setting up training for the enlisted men who would serve on Seawolf. During this time his father became very sick and died in July 1953. After his father's death in 1953, Carter resigned from the Navy to return to Georgia to manage the family interests. Carter was honorably discharged on 9 October 1953 at Headquarters, Third Naval District in New York City. On 7 December 1961, he transferred to the retired reserve with the rank of Lieutenant at his own request."
"wringing his hands in indecision, paralyzed by over-analysis."
Call me crazy, but I really don't think the U.S. Navy would give the captain's keys for a nuclear submarine to the person you described.
But I could see why Gopers would have distain for careful analysis given their history of nominating Reagan, Bush, Palin etc.
"After four years of malaise, Reagan helped turn around the U.S. economy."
Through free trade opened the flood gates to crappy foreign cars which was the death nail to Detroit because it allowed a huge cash influx to the Japanese auto makers for advanced research while draining research monies from the Big Three.
Pushed through tax cuts for the rich that ultimately led to the tremendous wealth disparities that currently exist. Before Reagan, disparities on this scale were formerly reserved for third world countries.
Come on CL, please don't fall for the MSM's mindless Reagan worship.

"That has historically been the case that women and children, because of their relative innocence have been treated deferentially."
Your problem is not logic, it's emotion. And your emotion is all tied up in your values system that is different from mine and everyone else's. I can assure you devout Muslims do not share your values.
In a multicultural society, effective government must focus on shared values rather than on those of one group.
If you are a progressive thinker as you have said, surely you understand this. If not, why not?
Get ready for more car- oriented, cul de sacs, strip malls and low density development.
If Jason Carter is wise he will keep his distance from his grandfather and his grandfather's politics.
Jimmy Carter was the most flawed, ineffectual President of the 20th century. To sum up his presidency in one image, think of him in a rocking chair in front of a dying fire in an unlit room. He is wearing a sweater and has a blanket across his lap. He is talking to himself and wringing his hands in indecision, paralyzed by over-analysis.
Give cep a break.
This project has a just-disclosed shovel-ready "green" element with funding from the Federal Government.
All of the homeless in downtown will be gathered nightly onto the greenspace and their body heat will be recovered to heat the GSU campus. City Council meetings, InvestAtlanta meetings, and APS Board meetings will also be held there and the waste heat from the politician's hot air will also be recovered.
If the expected waste heat is recovered, GSU may be able to heat all of downtown.
"[It is] very inexpensive; we sell it at the shop. You can get it at Buford Highway Farmers Market, you can get it at the Sweet Auburn Market."
Yeah, they should have decent places to live, just not in my neighborhood!!! As the sayin goes, "You can take a negro outta the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto outta them!" Maybe you're one of those bleeding hearts ready to forgive poor blacks for everything because you pity them but you don't speak for sensible people who are already once burned, twice shy.
Imagine that, a developer running regional planning. Does Jeff Fuqua know about this?
Great picture and caption.
cep, i hope you become homeless.
I think a lot of folks misunderstood President Jimmy Carter's "Malaise" speech. I don't see it as "malaise".
It was the "Telling the Brutally Honest Truth to the American People" speech.
Unfortunately, the mainstream media back then as it is now, was more interested in spinning hype, pipe-dreams, cocaine fantasies, misinformation, and outright lies...than it was in pushing America towards a better future.
It seems though, that the big money players don't like their Presidents telling us unwashed plebeians something so simple like the truth.
So we get some C-list Hollywood actor instead to continue the ongoing massive misinformation program of the American people. Weird how that works.
Our country is still heavily dependent on oil. We still haven't made a serious effort to wean ourselves off the middle east crude...and all the drama that comes with acquiring the black detritus.
Only in the U.S.A., I suppose...
I can see why Deal is already trying to smear Carter: he's 38, lives in Atlanta (meaning he'll advocate for the economic engine that differentiates Georgia from, say, Alabama instead of for the boonies), and doesn't have a history of unethical and corrupt business deals.
Apart from some news articles and editorials, I can't find a real campaign website for Jason Carter or a solid description of his platform. The Georgia at its best slogan seems a bit hokey, though. George Wilson is right: he needs to add transportation to his platform. However, he'd need to focus on more than just Atlanta to gain buy-in, e.g. the Savannah to Atlanta train that both cities have been clamoring for. Given the port expansion, it's the next natural step and would solidify a more productive, positive relationship between the two and throughout the region as a whole.
Hopefully he'll get the basics sorted out soon because if the conservatives are already paying him this much attention with only $27k in his campaign coffers, imagine where he could be...
Kasim sure doesn't seem to be shy about throwing his weight behind highly flawed allies. While his loyalty might be admirable, his choices of "friends" are -- too often -- terrible.
Where can you buy caul fat?
