But think how big that mega-church will be!

Is Spirit Bank a church?  Inquiring minds want to know.



As for Jenks outlet, who thinks this sign might still be the only thing there in two years?

I don't get your logic here.   It HAS been ruled on.   Right now, the ruling stands that anyone born here, regardless of situation (except for narrow exclusions) is a US citizen by birth.  That is current law and has been ruled on.

What you are suggesting, I think, is that there have been laws proposed that would attempt to change this without having to do an amendment.  None of those have been passed, or even vote on, and so no ruling could yet me made. (And without an amendment, any law of that nature would certainly be challenged.)  So right now there is no ambiguity, just some people who would like to change the situation, and that is not the same thing.  

There has never been a ruling on "anchor babies" of undocumented/illegal/whatever vernacular you want to use individuals. In the Kim Ark case, they were in the country legally and were properly documented. I'm not suggesting that change, as by being documented you have basically asked to be under our jurisdiction, and went through a process to do so.

I will say, if there has been a relatively recent case that I have overlooked, I am totally willing to drop my argument. But to my knowledge, no such case has been heard, hence my suggestion that it is still ambiguous at this time, and congress by itself can reserve the right to administer the law as they see fit (which they also have not done to date) and not run afoul of the constitution.

It would not require an amendment to change it so that aliens here illegally would not be afforded the right of citizenship, since the law is ambiguous enough and no court has actually ruled on it. Which was my point.

If this development actually happens, I can only assume this means that Simon sees the Woodland location continuing to go downhill.

But think how big that mega-church will be!

Does anyone know if one of the new buildings in the park will have a restaurant/cafe?  It seems like a no brainer but I wasn't sure, maybe at The Lodge?



I've been told by a friend of mine he has been interviewing as the food and beverage director so my guess is there is some sort of facility like that, but no idea if that is catering only or by the meal.

Also regarding Byrd, do you anticipate rental car companies rewriting contracts to make them void upon a non-listed person driving it (as this one did not).

And in a similar vein - two of our Supreme Court justices "have doubts" about the concept of personal privacy.   Snoopin' and poopin' into everybody's business is the hallmark position of the extremist right...this just brings it out into the open for all to see.

Fair question, is someone driving a rental car and doesn't have their name on the agreement not probably cause for cops? Stolen vehicle potentially. He also had prior drug and weapons violations which they were aware of prior to the search. He was actually in violation of the agreement at that point (not sure the cops knew this or not, but I'm sure if they read hard enough they would see it). They did find 49 bricks of heroin in this particular vehicle by the way, so the fact that this made it to the Supreme Court (only to be remanded) is kind of comical. I'm asking in all honesty because obviously the Daily Beast is taking it a bit far in their conclusions (unsurprisingly).

That's what I was getting at - current law is clear.  It will require an amendment to change and I don't know what my position is on that...probably lean toward changing it.  Don't see a reason to grant citizenship without due process just for an accident of birth.

Monitoring those cow farts is a really good use taxpayer money....

If I recall right, cows are second to termites in producing atmospheric methane. Greater biomass, you see. An increase in methane means more termites exist and global warming allows for more colonies.

But I'll try to avoid the Brussel sprouts and broccoli to do my part. Honest.
