That was the expected Fix News response as well.
"Um, hi... this is Ricky Lee Redneck and we need a permit for 2 million motorsickle riders to roll through Washington DC. I know it's only 3 weeks away. Porta Johns- what're those? How many trash cans we need? Whaddya mean that's more people than were here for the Inauguration?"
The Rolling Thunder crowd has no problem getting a permit every Memorial Day when they ride to the various war memorials and monuments, right?
I'm all for bikers, but they blew this permit thing out of proportion. The permit they were denied was for an escorted ride, on a weekday, during business hours. No one said they couldn't have the ride, just that it wouldn't be an escorted ride and that they'd have to obey all traffic laws instead of just rolling through red lights. VA police/hp did in fact escort a large group of about 500 through VA.
Rolling Thunder happens during Memorial Day weekend. Big difference, imo.

Going to battle with dss first thing Monday morning for my son to get temporary emergency medicaid. He had to have an emergency appendectomy Wed afternoon and has no insurance at his job. His job offers it, but his coverage doesn't go into effect until the first of the year.
You can request a hearing, but I have no idea what all that entails. I hope you've called and spoke to someone who can help you.

You and the kitten will be fine. Contact your local humane society, explain you've rescued a stray kitten and are low on funds but want to keep him, and they should be able to help you with costs for shots and later neutering. We only spent around $100 for two neuterings, shots, and a surgery to remove a tumor from one of our boy's mouth.
Oh, and you have a few weeks before getting him neutered. 8 weeks is way too young. Everyone else has said it, but please don't declaw. I'd be very wary of any vet that still does it. Around our area, none will; nor will they crop ears on dogs.
We were at the same Caravan tour that day. He took pics with my son no problem and tried to talk to him but Ty was awestruck and not saying a word, just staring. After Rod Smart horrified my daughter by making her think he ate a bug, she wouldn't take a pic with any of them.
Smitty didn't go out of his way to talk to anyone, but he did his thing about signing and pics. I chalked it up to him having a bad day and maybe not really wanting to be there. Rod Smart was having a blast.
Story was sad to be real. I have a two year old, and my wife is about as clumsy as they come. I think I just imagined what I would do or how I would feel if this were my boy. Several posters thought it wasn't a good idea to post the link until this am... That's why I didn't.
I definitely could relate to this story. As a few of us talked about through PM last night... Women just aren't protecters. We are, and to imagine what that father is dealing with right now is unimaginable.
Making fun of the way I handled it is cool, but these dingo dog posts are a little out of hand.
WTF? And no, I'm not a protecter; I'm a protector.
Just so you know, a forum of 99% women has been discussing this since it happened, with links. One even knows the mother. You mean to tell me that you, a big strong protector man couldn't handle discussing it, but a bunch of clumsy, nonprotecting women could?
iran is a beautiful country and i would love to go. for the most part the people are very accepting of americans and other outsiders (contrary to media reports) and the tourism industry is booming there. the visa application process is pretty rudimentary and you're almost guaranteed to be allowed entry.
It really is a beautiful country. My dad was there for a year or so, and we were there for 3 months. Our driver took us everywhere within a days driving distance from Isfahan.
