Well, these e-mails would need picks and shovels

Because my faith in government hit rock bottom YEARS ago.

A faith debased government. Save your nickels!

5¢ Promises, promises... Nickels are the last remnant of money worth its weight, yet in common circulation anywhere in the world today. 5 ¢ content is 25% nickel + 75% copper.
GRADING BUFFALO FIVE CENTS (1913-1938): Buffalo Five Cents - Bison Nickel - Indian Head Nickel. Grading circulated examples of United States coins is pretty straightforward for most series. The text in The Official American Numismatic Association Grading Standards for United States Coins is easy to follow and is accompanied by photographs that clearly illustrate the various grades. One coin type that often defies the rules, however, is the Indian Head/Buffalo nickel. Coins struck at the Denver and San Francisco Mints during the years 1917-27 often are so indistinct on their high points that grading becomes a real guessing game.

Someone saw your post...

and the price of nickel and copper dropped like a rock. Nickels are now worth just 4.99 cents. I didn't realize they watched your post so closely. :)

Which "Era" was that?

...was it the "era" of 10/03/2013.....(last year)
....or was it 5/29/2014......???

actually, I thought this was "BREAKING NEWS", until I looked again.
So..I'm laughing at MY own folly.

It happens..



People talk about Cruz as a potential frontrunner for 2016... he is Canadian I believe. He can't be president. I don't trust Cruz one iota.

Canadian?? I thought he was

Canadian?? I thought he was Cuban.

cruz facts:

Senator Cruz was born December 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and thus automatically a Canadian citizen. Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, was born in 1939 in Matanzas, Cuba, his mother born in Wilmington, Delaware. Cruz announced that he is renouncing his Canadian citizenship. [See “natural born citizen” as required by Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the US Constitution for President and by the 12th Amendment for Vice President.]

After his student visa expired, Rafael Cruz obtained political asylum in the U.S. He then found work with the oil industry in Canada, where Ted Cruz was born. Rafael Bienvenido Cruz became a Canadian citizen while in Canada. While his son was serving as solicitor general of Texas in 2005, Rafael Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship and became an American citizen.

Excerpt: A natural born citizen is a child born of TWO parents of the same citizenship. This is 'jus sanguinis' not 'jus soli'.

Just look at him. He's a Muppet.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

So where are the Republicans demanding a vote on new leadership?

Why are they still operating under the Speaker's dictatorship imposed on the House in the 1870s?

Why have the rank and file not taken back their rightful power over the legislative processes?

I posit because they want to be dictator (ahem) Speaker one day themselves.

If anyone studies how the House did business back in 1789, and then look at it in the 1870s and what was changed, and then look at it today, there will be no doubt left in your mind where the problem lies.

The members have abdicated all power.

Everything is a back-door deal among "leadership."

This is why everything is done with continuing resolutions, and "without objection" and "deemed to pass" shenanigans.

If that happened...

it would be me crying from so much joy.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Noooooooooooooo ...

... ya mean Boehner is a liar?

That "the aye's have it" dude is a corrupt bastard?

Say it ain't so!

Next you're gonna try and tell us the sky is blue.


Modern day mobsters

This is something we all know

This is something we all know and is all the more reason to oust these scoundrels and get behind Cruz, Paul, Amash, et al. Harry Reid has got to be the biggest snake in Democratic den of vipers.

Cruz is one of them.

I'm not getting behind him at all.

Surely you agree he is

Surely you agree he is effective. Don't you think he would make a good speaker of the house?

No, I do not agree he is effective. His filibuster failed.

I've not seen him try anything else.

On the Speaker issue - he's a Senator - so not impossible, but not likely.

Regardless, he has an inaccurate understanding of the Constitution. I don't want him anywhere near the Speaker's chair.

Well, you have 99 others to choose from

Who would you prefer in the speaker's chair. And no hypotheticals; actual office holders only please.

Any such exercise is hypothetical by definition.

And your stipulation of only considering actual office holders has no constitutional basis.

There is no such limitation in the Constitution - the House can choose ANYONE as their Speaker, even someone not elected to any office anywhere.

And my answer is Ron Paul.

This would also make him 3rd in line of succession to the Presidency.

The Speaker of the House will

The Speaker of the House will be a member of the House of Representatives, so there are not 99 others to choose from, since those would be senators.

Wow, I guess I really was that tired.

Got my house and senate mixed up. OK, so you have some 400+ to choose from; go for it. Also, we all know that a member of the house is going to get that office because we all know how politics works ... or, more often, fails to work.

There is no such requirement.

The House can choose anyone they want as Speaker.

It has never happened, but the Constitution places no restriction on who the Speaker can be.


What is this about having faith in Washington? That was funny.
