The Des Moines City Council says it’s going to start charging after 4PM for parking in Downtown garages. We asked what people thought of it on Facebook, and I have to say I’m surprised.
People sounded as if $3 is going to break their budget. If you parked in Downtown Chicago you’d need a second mortgage to pay off the ticket when you exited at the end of the night.
We’re talking about less than most of these people pay for a CUP OF COFFEE! It’s certainly less than the Red Bull and Vodka you’re going to have when you go to one of the clubs.
Great. I agree…as long as The President is willing to say those Construction jobs will go to the companies that offer the most competitive bid, and not, to Union only shops. As the President said, we should put Country before party.
The Former Vice President was on the Today Show this morning. I just got done watching the interview. I thought it was fair.
Just a couple of thoughts. On water boarding, Matt Lauer asked, If an American were to be water boarded by Iran would we object? The Vice President said we would on the grounds that that would be one of our citizens. In the case of the the Terrorism suspects we used that technique on, these people have no flag they operate under…they are not part of a legitimate government using recognized techniques to gather information, declare war, fight what they see as oppression…they are terrorists.
They send children as young as 11 to be suicide bombers against American convoys. They tell these children that they won’t be hurt when the bomb goes off. They lie to children…to get them to murder. They are not people who recognize the human rights of anyone else…they are not victims.
This presents a slippery slope to the intelligence community in The United States. The scrutiny aimed at these techniques is an important debate a free society that values Human Rights should engage in.
Beyonce is pregnant. That news produced a record number of tweets. I guess there’s not a lot of debate who’s on social media.
We had an escape at our house last night. JT got a time-out for hitting his brother…we don’t hit. Sally brought him up to his room for a quick break. As she came down the stairs I heard him following close behind. He’s apparently jumped out of the crib almost as soon as she’s left the room. I’m not sure what he was more upset about…getting a time-out…or the fact that’s he’d scared himself when he climbed over the rail of the crib.
So it begins.
We have to make a decision about regular beds soon but I was hoping to get another month or so out of the cribs.
I hope you all have a great day!
