|Wow, got to use this twice this mo.|
Really? I'd love to see a copy of the daughter's utility bills.A mobile home belonging to the daughter of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin will be removed from its parking spot on the grounds of the governor’s mansion after it was found to be in violation of zoning laws, the governor said on Wednesday.
Christina Fallin, 28, has been living in the travel trailer near the state capitol since April and will vacate the property by Sunday.
The governor said her daughter would be welcome to live inside the mansion while she looks for a more permanent arrangement.
"It has been a blessing to have her close by and, like any parent, I love her, am proud of her and am happy to have her stay with her family," Fallin said.
Local broadcaster KFOR took aerial photos of the trailer, which was hooked up to utility connections on the mansion grounds. Fallin discounted suggestions that her daughter's utilities were being paid by taxpayers.
Damn, can't any of her descendants get or hold a fucking job? Or pay rent anywhere? Resentful Republican losers, all of them."Yesterday, after we received a question about regulations, I asked my staff to double check if there might be any codes or zoning rules concerning personal trailers," Fallin said.
"We found that the Capitol-Medical Center Improvement and Zoning Commission rules prohibits living in trailers, even temporarily, on state property."
Fallin lives in the mansion with her husband and stepson. Another stepson lives in a garage apartment at the mansion.
Christina Fallin, a musician and artist, is the governor's daughter from her first marriage.

are what's wrong:
According to the poll, white Evangelicals, older voters, people who did not attend college, Republicans, and voters who live in rural areas tended to be more supportive of deportation compared to granting legal status to the undocumented population.You know, hateful ignorant crackers living in fear. And too tax-averse to pay for deportation anyway, making it an even sadder joke.

Several thousand words' worth.

Four citizens sat outside a Bellevue recruitment center on Wednesday, joining a national movement to guard military recruiters following a deadly rampage in Tennessee. Three men and one woman stationed themselves outside the Armed Forces Career Center near 140th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 20th Street in Bellevue for most of the day Navy veteran Don Dinsmore's son is a Marine recruiter at the Bellevue office. "They can't be armed, but I can," Dinsmore said. Dillon, who didn't give his last name, signed up for the Marines at this very office. He sat outside the center with his dog Zeus. "I shopped for boot camp on August 22, 2011," he said. He was badly injured in training and never served overseas, but knew many who did. "I failed my brothers. I didn't get to deploy. I didn't get to protect them in Afghanistan," Dillon said. "I'm going to do my best to protect my brothers at home. I can't patrol or anything, but in my chair I can at least sit here and watch over them." Not everyone outside the center was a veteran or a man. Shannon Tahja also sat in front of the office. "I'm intensely American. All my friends are military. A lot of my friends are military and I stand with them," she said. A couple walked by the group sitting outside the center and thanked them for protecting the servicemen and women inside. "It makes me feel like there may be hope for this country after all," said the man. Around the country, individuals have stood guard outside recruitment centers to protect those inside. People have been reported sitting outside centers in Cincinnati, Ohio; Cleburne, Texas; Howell, Michigan; Monroe, North Carolina; Longview, Texas; and Gallatin, Tennessee -- to name a few. The same has also happened in other locations in Washington state. On Tuesday, armed men were reportedly stationed outside an Army recruiting office in Spanaway, Washington. The two citizens took personal days from work to stand guard with their AR-15 rifles. Another man reportedly sat in front of a recruiting station in Silverdale, Washington, Tuesday. An Army recruiting spokesman said his branch would rather civilians stay alert and call in any suspicious activity instead of bringing weapon. But the military isn't taking steps to remove them as long as the guns stay outside. At the same time, some governors are calling for soldiers at recruitment centers to be armed. Following the shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which left five servicemen dead, some governors called for the arming of recruiters in their states. That included Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. On Tuesday, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin issued an executive order allowing National Guard personnel to carry firearms on duty. In Virginia, Gov. Terry McAuliffe wants to increase patrol around military recruitment centers. Federal law prohibits the possession of firearms in designated Federal buildings.

Don't really care, but hoping to start an international incident by piling on the Limeys, who really were just awful, & probably haven't improved much.
The cynic in me wonders why the Indians let the fucking Limeys colonize & depredate them in the first place. Let alone that they didn't kill the damn Brits after they gave them guns.
Both sides may not do exactly the same thing, but both sides usually suck hard.

The U.S. Army is significantly more experienced w/ guns & stuff than many who profess to support the wholesale slaughter of babies & the like on the other side of the world/south of our own border by said military.
Ha ha ha ha ha. I do crack myself up once in a while, when I hit an absurd note like that.
As evidenced by our item directly below. Reactionary droolers, however, have a somewhat hysterical interpretation ...

|We are all trainwrecks.|
Christ on a crutch, hrs. ago I blew U.S.$447.45 (That's w/ a 50% discount on the lenses, frames were a mere U.S.$99.95!) on a pair of cheaters. Should I have charged weapons & ammo instead (also conveniently leaving Capital One to pay for my murdering)? Not that I was planning on any sharpshooting, but I s'pose improved vision could help accuracy.
P.S.: False-flag operation to get joke G.O.P. prez candidate Bobby "Piyush" Jindal's sad mug on tee vee to blather the standard idiocy?
P.P.S.: Maybe the guy hadn't been to the movies for a while & wasn't aware he'd have to pay four hrs.' wages for a two-hr. (max) movie, a drink & a tub of popcorn product.
*Not to worry: 58's in my rear-view mirror; if I hadn't already quit I'd be retirement-eligible in a couple of mos.
