In Passing

In passing ..
Bonding Issue
1) Can Ann? Duh! - TigerHawk
I suppose this is one of those posts that needs to be loaded up with disclaimers up front. No, I do not dislike Canada. I lived there as a child

2). Utah Legislature: Raindrops may fall into pails legally
While collecting or harvesting rainwater has been a habitual practice for years in the state, it has been officially "illegal" because the state owns the water rights

3) Unions want Washington's help with pension funds
Nonunion workers and private companies could be forced into absorbing the financial liabilities of underfunded union pension plans, thanks to pending health care mandates and an executive order that could be finalized this year,

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer  is warning that some of his Democratic colleagues are being threatened with violence when they go back to their districts — and he wants Republicans to stand up and condemn the threats.
OKAY- Hey angry mob numbering in the millions, that would go on your permanent records!  Wouldn't it be better to work from the inside, and get your state to secede from this Union from hell?   And let them rot in their own filth?   Oh- and make the Barn Army the new national defense force, with a brand new B-52?

5) Why Do Democrats Have to be such Friggin' Drama Queens?
Dramacrats are simpering and wetting their pants because Sarah Palin used cross-hairs on a graphic (right) to symbolize congressional districts to target in the 2010 elections.

6) Maryland House advances Tort Lawyer Protection  bill raising auto liability limits
The Maryland House of Democrats has approved a measure raising the minimum amount of automobile liability insurance required by state drivers.
  • Steny Hoyer  is warning that some of his Democratic colleagues are being threatened with violence  (Wait, that was something else- sorry)
7) Dem Senators Munch on Lobster in Coatroom During Reconciliation Process
... deciding the best way to commemorate their passing of a bill 62 percent of the American public objects to was to order in lobster in honor of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.

We Obey All Laws While Nuking

(Note: They should thank Sarah her for rejecting my map -rollover)

8) Obama Rubs Our Faces In It
“We proved that this government, a government of the people and by the people, still works for the people.”

9) Dr. Helen: What the hell is with Fox News?

It seems that they are stuck in the 1990s with the false hope that if they act "fair and balanced" by bending over backwards to give much time and attention to Democrats on their shows, they will somehow be rewarded.
COMMENT: Because, Dr. Helen, it's the right thing for journalists to do.  Present both sides of every story, and let the chips fall. That's why FOX is the number one cable news show.

In the west, water rights are homesteaded, and not riparian, like they are in the east.

You don't get to dam a stream on your property, if said dam causes folks downstream, who were using that water in the past, to not have access to the water they had been customarily using.

Most irrigation districts don't get pissy about downspouts being diverted into rain barrels ... that's generally considered poor behavior.

I think the Utah legislature is simply trying to make it legal, without allowing some jerk to find some loophole to mess up the current water rights laws. I'm pretty certain they will go on ignoring downspout barrels.

I didn't notice the rollover until it rolled over. Here's the first time I've ever typed this:
