Believes both Pence and kittyman are moral and ethical people.

Clyde Pence wants to impose his religious values on me, is that moral or ethical?

Just as moral and ethical as IS imposing its values

What does this say about tRump care costs and for profit medical insurance and doctors?
http://news.berkeley.edu/story_jump/in-mexico-nearly-half-of-births-are-c-sections/
In Mexico, nearly half of births to first-time mothers are C-sections

An analysis of cesarean birth rates in Mexico, the country in the Americas with the second-highest prevalence of cesarean deliveries (after only Brazil), has found large disparities in how and why women have cesarean births.
...
The study also found that enrollees in Seguro Popular, the public health insurance program, had lower cesarean birth rates than women in other insurance programs or those without insurance.

For many many years two newspapers hit the porch, a bit fat regional one in the morning and a smaller local one in the evening. Time passed and the local paper, which did both morning and evening editions dropped the evening and there were two morning papers. Time continued to pass and the local started losing quality. They must have gotten rid of the copy writers. I can't remember exactly when but I turned out to be at a newsworthy event. Got to see the local reporter collect the story. They talked to one person, who told them what they thought happened and the reporter ran elsewhere. They ran that story, but it was not what happened as I had stayed around to hear the people involved explain it to the police who where there. It was at this point I had a big bone to pick with them. I didn't cancel though. More time passed and the local got smaller and started having issues delivering the paper, too many missing copies, and the copy writing got even worse. Cancel. Paper is still published, but the 50 pages it was is down to 10 and on smaller sheets and no hard news anymore. I'm sure someone cares about the cotillion, but not I.

The regional held its standards all through this time. I did notice it was getting thinner, but it was still hefty and full of interesting things. Several years later however they had to close a regional distribution center. When they did, the paper wasn't getting to me early enough for me to read it before I had to go to work. Reading a morning paper in the evening isn't really a newspaper anymore. I've picked up a copy here and there since, but today it is a shell of its former glory. Frankly that paper's internet site is better than their print edition. It also has been sold a couple times and is now in a corporate behemoth.

Thank you for confirming there is No Evidence. Just politically motivated hysteria.
There is lots of evidence, evidence all over the place. Might not be enough quality evidence to secure a conviction, yet.

I know, but my point was from the film production side. Every below the line person who has ever worked on a location set has bumped into an owners rep at one time or another. Not finding one, every below the line person knew, or should have known, they were trespassing.

I found an article that quoted several such people who wondered and asked about that and were reassured they had permission and that no more trains were expected.

Sounds like the alarm bells were ringing and the back of neck hairs raised, but just not loud enough.

Yep, that's messy. Where the wall is scraped and has a chunk missing at the left, is that where it went over?

No, it went through. I found this http://www.whittierdailynews.com/general-news/20161222/big-rig-crash-on-210-freeway-in-pasadena-likely-to-snarl-afternoon-commute with some more photos.

Preliminary findings in the investigation into the collision between the USS Fitzgerald and a Philippine cargo ship off the coast of Japan in June suggest the accident was caused by multiple errors by the Fitzgerald’s crew and a failure to take action in the minutes leading to the collision, according to two defense officials.

“They did nothing until the last second,” one official said. “A slew of things went wrong.” A second official said the crash “will wind up being our (the US Navy’s) fault.”

Jury blames Big Bad Railroad

How in hell can the railroad be held responsible for the other people's stupidity?
That is beyond ridiculous.

Welcome to jury selection, where smart people figure out how to get off serving.

Clue #1, no owners representative on site. Never heard of any filming where there wasn't an owners representative present. But hey, I live near Hollywood so maybe I know too much to serve on a jury.

If the railroad had granted permission for the shoot, they would have had someone there to talk to the trains. They did not grant permission, therefore the entire movie shoot amounted to criminal trespass.

Plaintiffs apparently claimed two earlier trains went by the site and didn't report the movie crew to their dispatcher. My response is, the movie crew wasn't on the track then and the train crews had no way to know they would be on it later.

I know, but my point was from the film production side. Every below the line person who has ever worked on a location set has bumped into an owners rep at one time or another. Not finding one, every below the line person knew, or should have known, they were trespassing.

I understanding there will probably be a response, or responses, that will confirm what I have said.
Here's the best one...

"It only takes one"

...& you are in the best position to know that as fact, after all you are "ex-internal affairs". :-)

Helps if the training isn't everyone is trying to kill you every second of the day. Always make sure your weapon is pointed at the nearest human. Fire you weapon at the first sound because you are dead if you don't. Better to have 100 dead innocent people than 1 injured cop.

- - at the six-month mark, the president’s tally stands at 836 false or misleading claims. That’s an average of 4.6 claims a day - -

- - the database also shows how repetitive Trump’s claims are. Many politicians will drop a false claim after it has been deemed false. But Trump just repeats the same claim over and over.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/07/20/president-trumps-first-six-months-the-fact-check-tally/

And stupidos believe... incredible.

Remember, the very scary thing is they also believe in a good book, which they teach their children.

Religion is the oligarchs opiate for the masses.

Heavy freight - maximum speed below 50mph (might have even been below 30mph due to local temporary speed limits).
Not the worst new wire installation damage I've seen. That prize goes to the jerk who messed up the vertical alignment at the end of a neutral section which wiped out the pantograph on the first unit through, and dragged about 10 miles of double track wire with it, span wires, tensions wires, the lot.

Ooooh, that sounds messy.

BTW, was this a slick way of saying sometimes a swamp can sometimes produce something good? Something other than gas?

Nothing can produce odorous gas faster than a politician's mouth.

BTW swamps are the planets filters.
