Can we also establish a no children or dogs policy, as they are a hazard to bikers when they get in the way, and are generally annoying when people don't control them, which is almost always the case.

We can't even keep people from speeding on fifth street, how do you expect to e…

Howard Roark commented on Should Give the Poor a Tax Break

Bsmn, I'm not sure that your post was any more relevant to me. I don't watch fox news, because I don't watch TV, I don't have time for it most of the time. I don't listen to limbaugh either. I don't need other people to tell me what my views should be, my principles dictate my view…

Howard Roark commented on This Is a Christian Community

I believe that Obama has shown is birth certificate to prove he is a natural born citizen as required by the constitution. Not exactly sure why it took so long though.

Romney has provided the tax returns as required by law. Beyond that he is under no obligation to share with the gen…
