Yes, but a huge difference between being gay and being a pedophile. The 2 are not related in any way. I don't know what world you live in but I might like to try some of the stuff that puts you there. It must be really good. :roll: I'll just go ahead and let the ignorance of this comment stand on i...

Re: Business Opportunity

I think OK printing offers some of these items. It's also a very difficult business (even the big office supplies stores are struggling to compete with Amazon).

In reality, for those people it would actually help if Wisconsin made it's rules more strict as then more states would honor our permits. Full disclosure, I have a permit. I've never carried in...

Re: Wheel Tax

Technically the ATVs are registered already. They're paying a registration fee just like you are for your car. If you want to see more of that money diverted to roads that's an option. The ATVs are also paying the fuel tax, which goes directly to paying for roads. Based on your reasoning shouldn't o...

Re: What ever happened to Fulsher School?

It's not the city, that school is far enough out that it's going to be one of the townships, which will likely have much looser laws.

You would need to get the township to pass new laws and then enforce them if you want anything to change.

The population of Hawaii is approximately 1.42 million people. Obama won the last election by nearly 5 million votes. In 2008 he won by 9.5 million....

Re: School days

Old Scout you're still missing it. Going from 8 class periods per day to 7 makes each class longer. Then adding the extra minute or so does as well. I believe it adds 8-10 minutes to each class, each day. As long as the kids get the same amount of teaching time overall why does it matter? In reality...
