Born on Boulevard. Probably die there. If you want to know about the picture Google "Google horse boy."
Great behind-the-scenes look at a great band. All it's missing is Kris Kristofferson...but it's way better than those things, anyway.

"Why does she have to show us these threats for YOU to believe they occurred?"
Because people who say they were threatened and then don't back it up with specifics are bullshitting. She may be entirely correct to stand up for what she believes the interests of her citizens are, but she is entirely full of it if she doesn't tell what she means by threats.
"We all know you have a confirmation bias..."
What does this even mean? Do you not require confirmation? Do you just believe anything you hear? Natural born "progressive."
If she doesn't detail these threats with names and dates, I'm calling bullshit.
Probably along the lines of "If you don't vote for the stadium, we're going to vote against your Ladies Auxiliary Sewing Circle parking passes.'
Dems horse trading for votes to get controversial laws like the ACA passed at the national level are heroes. Repubs horse trading for votes to get a mildly controversial sports facility built locally...well they're thugs.
"You mean reconciliation? The same "trick" used to get the Bush tax cuts through?"
I was against that, too, and my memory is just fine. For instance, I remember that reconciliation has been used for tax bills many times but an overhaul of a significant portion of the economy that affects everyone a la the ACA...never. Never has it been used for such a purpose, with no support or coordination with the opposition party. Without sweetheart deal horse trading and bullshit reconciliation, there would be no ACA.
"we should go further and nationalize healthcare and big pharma."
"This issue to too important to let ideology (left or right) stand in the way of improvement."
C'mon, Man, nationalizing stuff is a 100% left wing idea. If you didn't want ideology to play a role, you would join with me in criticizing absurd gummint mandates that prevent you from crafting a policy to your individual needs. Instead you defend the indefensible, pregnancy coverage for women who can't get pregnant, etc.
It is just a matter of time until we have full blown gummint health care, though, so all you numbnuts will be happy. Too many people want someone else to pay for their needs. Actually it will be a two tier system. Moneyed people will be able to pay outside the system for whatever they need and form the bottom up, there will be mediocre universal care. If they try to take away the right to go outside the system, like under Hillarycare, there will be a huge outcry. It will never happen so you nationalizers will get an even more unequal system than before the ACA. Be careful what you wish for.
" Don't like it, vote it out."
Can I use procedural tricks to get it by the Senate when I don't have the votes, you know, the bogus way it was voted in?
"You probably don't need a number of roads in say Alaska; yet, you probably use a good number of the roads hereabouts."
Worst analogy in the world. Roads are a public amenity. Health care is a private need. When the gummint takes over health care completely, maybe you'll have something here.
"some of those absolutely useless policies that Obamacare replaces:"
Not only useless policies, but affordable, catastrophic care only policies that don't meet the litany of federal mandates for coverage you may not want or need.
If you want to pay for routine care yourself and insure only for dire emergencies, well Barry doesn't think you should be able to do that. Your wife can't get pregnant or you don't want substance abuse coverage? Too bad. Barry thinks you mustyhave reproductive and rehab in your policy.
"When we cut down a tree in the back yard to make way for a gazebo"
It was my damn tree and I need a gazebo to meditate on the human condition.
"he has allowed his ego to drive his deleterious whims, fancies and hobbies exponentially."
Defines the human condition.
"drive our gas guzzlers 200 miles to go "commune with nature" on Chimney Rock "
Am I not supposed to go any where that MARTA or my bike won't go? You keep poor-mouthing driving up to the mountains when that is a major reason to love living here.
