Watching the election returns this week, it occurred to me that they were producing a potentially interesting situation—a three party House of Representatives. On paper, the Republicans have a majority. But that majority depends on the support of a substantial number of representatives who got nominated despite opposition from the Republican establishment, mostly with Tea Party support. They, like everybody else who reads the poll results, are aware that, unpopular as the Democratic party is with voters at the moment, the Republican party is only a little less unpopular. But in future legislative struggles, matters may not be that simple. I've been reading your blog for awhile and I was hoping you could help me out with something. I recently bought my first handgun, took the concealed carry class, and now have my permit. A Citizen’s freedom of speech is considered one of the most important rights in any civilised democratic society. In the United States this right is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution. Despite freedom of speech being a right guaranteed in law there are bodies and individuals who seem not to understand what this means, and will attempt to silence or punish those who choose to exercise this right.
For example if you are familiar with this site, it will be apparent that the author does not like pharmacists very much, and has expressed views likely to offend.That is his right. Anyone offended has the right to express their disagreement, but one pharmacist reported the Doctor to the GMC claiming that what he had written was “unprofessional” and that his “behaviour falls seriously short of what would be expected from a doctor”. Interference with a convention right is unlawful and the pharmacist in question, in attempting to have the doctor disciplined, was undoubtedly guilty of such interference. The first driver is in Los Angeles, the next in New York, then Paris, Rome and last is Helsinki. It's a fascinating slice of life during one night. Jim Jarmusch is one of those directors whose name alone will draw me to a film. Tom Waits does the music. Here's a trailer:The NYT gives it a positive review and says that Jarmusch is "an increasingly fine director of actors. The members of the cast are splendid to start with, but he pushes them to singular achievements". It's a beautiful film. Criterion has released this one. Roger Ebert includes it on his list of "great movies" and calls it "a film of haunting mystery and buried sexual hysteria". FilmReference. "I have been slightly acquainted with the Evolution/Intelligent Design discussion. From my middle distance perspective I have observed several things about the I. D. They have had to dumb down the presentation to the level of understanding of the evolutionists. Apparently they have not dumbed it down enough. Hi there!Serendipity Stamps has released some new spring images, and the Design Team is here today to share some creations and inspiration using the new stamps. You should have arrived here from Vickie's blog. If you'd like to start from the beginning and get more details about the blog hop, please head to Mary's Blog. Here's what I made using these new images: For this card, I used the new Aprons image. I stamped it twice and colored the cute aprons with Copic markers. The sentiment is this Mother stamp. For my second card, I created a colorful background using some of the flowers from the Flower Pops set. I used a bunch of happy colors and just layered the images. The adorable sentiment is the Happy Mother's Day Stitched. The Cuban human rights activist had arrived in Panama to attend a parallel forum to the Summit of the Americas titled "Youth and Democracy"with other youth activists from Latin America speaking on the panel: "Youth participation with proposals for democracy and the strengthening of good governance. " Rosa's tweets translated to English along with the time sent and linked to the original Spanish text are reproduced below providing a chronology of what transpired in real time. It was a blast! I posted my presentation, and I've included it here if you are interested. Those of you who have been to EATS probably recognize where this is going. I wanted to let you guys know that we will have topic specific sections this year, and to ask you to not only suggest which ones you would like to see, but to also provide you with an opportunity to volunteer to work on one. I await your response with a quickly beating heart. All the best, Charlie. It's that time again! The Papertrey Ink team is going to be sharing the rest of the projects they made for this month's countdown with the new stamp releases. The first card is made with the new Tiny Triangles stamp set and the Cover Plate: Triangles. The triangles all patched together reminded me of a baby quilt. When I first sat down to make something with the triangles, I was stamping directly onto my practice cardstock. I am not very good at stamping them all straight and getting them just right, so I used the new Cover Plate: Triangles to cut a bunch of triangles out first and then stamped these little pieces.
