Re: Carry At A State Park?

It has been my understanding that COE restricts on the water only. Nope; U.S. Title 36, Chapter III applies to all property under ACOE control, land and water: §312.1 Areas covered. The regulation covered in this part shall be applicable to all water resource project lands under the supervision of ...

Re: Obama's continuing legacy

Skiprr, Who makes up their readership? I can't imagine self-aggrandizing books by the O's will garner much attraction even to die hard libs. So, is this just a wink-wink strawman to give them sixty-five million? Oh, they are most definitely one of the largest book publishers out there. They can aff...

Re: Obama's continuing legacy

Fox News Channel is reporting right now that the Penguin Random House deal for two books from the Obamas is valued at $65 million, not $60 million. But, hey. What's a few million between friends?

What? You mean that you won't be pre-ordering the hardcovers on Amazon as soon as they're posted? And giving the books as Christmas presents?

Houston's Mayor Turner indicated during a city council meeting today that Officer Ronny Cortez's lower body may be paralyzed. Not confirmed; will have to watch for more information.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

And Texas, particularly Houston, gets to be embarrassed again, and this time not by Sheila Jackson Lee (well, at least not today...not that we know of). One and only one democrat boycotted President Trump's Address to Congress: Congressman Al Green of Texas's 9th District. Here is the press release ...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

President Trump nailed it. That was awesome. And on Fox News, right after the initial comments, The New York Times "the truth is" rather ridiculous advertisement was aired. Former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is delivering the dems response. And it is scripted--obviously prerecorded--right along...

I believe the count is 94. That's how many times the speech was interrupted by applause. Maybe 95 because she might have gone for two during the long sustain while SEAL Ryan Owens was recognized.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I thought they were sitting on their hands until I saw the 2 women giving a thumbs down and laughing like they were in junior high. Pelosi, Schumer, and Cummings pretty much are sitting on their hands. The only time they're applauding is if they absolutely have to or face being lambasted by their c...
