In a simple two-page document, an Alabama congressman has filed a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare.
Or, as it is stated in the bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday.
“This Act may be cited as the ‘Obamacare Repeal Act,'” the bill states.
And the bill uses just one sentence to do it.
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Outrage has grown at Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, as the school faces layoffs and increased class sizes due to a law limiting funds for schools with a higher white student body.
The Los Angeles Unified School District provides more funding for schools where the white population is below 30 percent.
In a letter to parents, the district noted the highly regarded middle school had been above the percentage for the past couple years.
The racial formula was a condition imposed by court decisions dealing with desegregation in the 1970s.
Heavy thunderstorms, high winds and hail in the forecast tonight and just as I started to say that it’s actually pretty mellow here, I saw the pecan tree in the back yard double over from the back window. A good 50 mph wind there from a light breeze…..
Fuck, I hope it don’t knock down any more trees on the property, I’m sick of cutting wood. I’ve pretty much worn out my chainsaw on the tree from the last storm and I’ve still got to buck that trunk.
The rain’s coming down in sheets, the thunder is one continuous boom and lightning’s flashing. I wonder how long the internet and power’s going to stay on?
SoftBaugh has released an article on trade show skills. Trade shows are often overlooked by many small businesses, or approached with unreasonable expectations by others. Trade shows can run the gamut between inexpensive $100 or less booths at gun shows or local hobby shows, all the way up to many thousands of dollars for booths and accessories at industry events. Some exhibitors, such as those at home shows, will spend upwards of six figures on their displays, even building little kitchen, living room or deck mock-ups on site.
Moments ago Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a surprise appearance at Sean Spicer’s daily White House press briefing to announce that his DOJ will be taking steps to not only require that so-called “sanctuary cities” enforce federal immigration laws but would also be seeking to claw back past DOJ awards granted to those cities if they refuse to certify compliance.
For those who’ve been living on another planet for the past two decades, I once wrote a screed called The Pussification Of The Western Male, which took about an hour to write and was a stream-of-consciousness rant against the demeaning of men in Western society. The piece garnered an immediate and voluminous online response (thank you, Insty), caused my host’s (website and email) servers to crash and necessitated finding a new host because they kicked me off. The responses I got in the mail — I didn’t allow comments at that stage — were interesting. A large number, of course, were vituperative squeals from feministicals and their girlymen cohorts, and included death threats and threats of violence against me and my family. (Most of those disappeared when I responded to them by email with my home address, and an invitation to take their best shot — and to bring a gun, because I surely would.) All sorts of liberal websites climbed on, garnering me awards such as “Worst Blogger On The Internet” (although, upon recollection, that award may have been for Let Africa Sink, another crowd-pleaser).

A NYPD detective was arrested Sunday for fondling himself in front of the windows of Long Island homes, police sources said.
Detective Robert Francis was arrested after one homeowner in Rockville Centre called 911 to report that a man was standing in the backyard masturbating, the sources said.
As a young naturalist growing up in the Deep South, I feared kudzu. I’d walk an extra mile to avoid patches of it and the writhing knots of snakes that everyone said were breeding within. Though fascinated by the grape-scented flowers and the purple honey produced by visiting bees, I trembled at the monstrous green forms climbing telephone poles and trees on the edges of our roads and towns.
Introduced from Asia in the late 19th century as a garden novelty, but not widely planted until the 1930s, kudzu is now America’s most infamous weed. In a few decades, a conspicuously Japanese name has come to sound like something straight from the mouth of the South, a natural complement to inscrutable words like Yazoo, gumbo and bayou.
A couple weeks ago I remember getting a question either in the comments or email asking if my PO box accepted large packages and I replied yes, wondering if somebody was shipping me a body or what.
Friday I checked my PO box and there were pick-up slips for 2 oversized packages and inside I found a complete set of Time Life’s The Civil War as well as a master index. Twenty eight volumes in all and all are in excellent shape. I was speechless, Bro.
I had a few of them years ago, but I had no idea there were that many books in the set.
Anyways, for the past 2 days I’ve been going nuts trying to find the email or comment (to get his email) so that I could thank him for it, but I can’t find it anywhere. None of the comment keywords gave me anything and I dump my email every couple days in an attempt to keep things somewhat orderly.
Whoever sent it – Thank you very much. I will have many an enjoyable evening with your fine gift and I’m sure they will be a fine reference to help me locate some of the sites I’m curious about. Seriously, I can only imagine the expression on my face when I started pulling them out of the box.
