I don’t know if it’s because I’m more and more Libertarian as I get older, but I find no reason why the government (federal, state, and city) is involved with. The free market is who should look over these things, more legislation isn’t the solution. I don’t know why government is involved with marriage, but I don’t care anymore if you want a marriage license – go ahead and get one.
After a months-long battle with the city of Irwindale over complaints about a spicy odor, Sriracha sauce creator David Tran said Wednesday that he is now seriously considering moving his factory to another location.
Tran responded Wednesday to the politicians and business leaders from 10 states and multiple cities in California who have offered to host the Sriracha factory. He invited them to tour the facility in Irwindale and decide if their communities would complain about the odors that arise during production.
Huy Fong Foods’ Executive Operations Officer Donna Lam said that Alabama, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Kansas, Ohio, Georgia, Iowa, Arizona, New Mexico and West Virginia have offered to host factories. A cadre of local officials also have thrown their support behind the hot sauce maker, including state Sen. Ed Hernandez.
I love Sriracha sauce. I use it on almost everything. Would be nice if they moved the plant to here in Ohio. Fun place for a field trip.
Two Long Island high school students have been suspended for allegedly bringing a Confederate flag to school. Brother Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, said the two seniors walked in with a Confederate flag draped around their shoulders during an after-hours sporting event at the school.
I fly it with pride for my family that fought for the South in the war.
A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with House Republicans’ probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court.
Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation, and announced it Tuesday. “The American people should not be footing the bill for federal employees who stonewall Congress or rewarding government officials’ bad behavior,” Mr. Farenthold said.
A new Citizens United Political Victory Fund poll shows that Republican Arizona voters have had it with Sen. John McCain, even though the senator has signaled his intentions to run for a sixth term in 2016.
According to the poll, 64.2 percent of likely GOP primary voters said that they are ready for someone new to take the job and only 29.3 percent signaled a willingness to re-elect McCain.
If we ask nicely, can he take his daughter with him?
A year after a pair of terrorist bombs killed three people and injured hundreds of others during the Boston Marathon, several Miami Valley runners say they are looking forward to this year’s race. “We’re going to show people we’re not afraid,” said Michael Willets of New Carlisle, who plans to travel to Boston with his family on Saturday, and will run in this year’s race. The marathon is scheduled for Monday morning. More than 36,000 people, including 50 from the Miami Valley, are expected to participate.
The unit – in operation since 2003 and later renamed the Zone Assessment Unit – logged where Muslims worked, shopped, ate and prayed.
“The Demographics Unit created psychological warfare in our community,” Linda Sarsour of the Arab American Association of New York told the New York Times newspaper.
“Those documents, they showed where we live,” she added. “They were able to see their entire lives on those maps. And it completely messed with the psyche of the community.”
Sounds like a great organization to me. Why disband it then? Have they forgotten about us being attacked from within on 9/11? The surveillance program should have been permanent and overtly looking for terrorists. This will end up costing countless lives because they didn’t want to be actively looking for the threats which will come.
