Are GOP hopefuls avoiding Joplin Missouri out of fear that they might be asked if they supported the Republica?
"Are GOP hopefuls avoiding Joplin Missouri out of fear that they might be asked if they supported the Republica?"
Theyre avoiding Joplin because a disaster area is not the time and place to lobby for political campaigns.
"The Republican Plan to hold any Federal Aid Hostage until the Democrats will agree to an offsetting spending cut of some residents Food Stamp?"
You got that backwards. The Democrat plan is to hold the Federal aid and country hostage until the Republicans agree to give up trying to act fiscally sane and get this countrys financial health and security back on track.
Liberaltarian writes: "The Constitution requires Congress to provide for the "General Welfare."
False on 2 counts. It says "promote the general welfare.". Not "provide" or "provide for". And its in the preamble, which does not require congress to do so.
Mentioned in the United States' Preamble to the Constitution, "Welfare" means health, happiness, prosperity or well-being.
The US Supreme Court has ruled that nothing in the preamble grants legislative power.
"Welfare" should not be read in isolation, but as a part of the whole preamble - the idea of the preamble is simply that the founders of our nation think that the proposed system of governance would naturally result in the items listed in the preamble. Be very cautious to not confuse result and causation.
"General welfare" is one of the ostensible results of our system of governance.
Turning the tables around and saying that "general welfare" is a legislative goal is entirely corrupt and against what the founders were saying.
The founders defined "welfare" as a result - a natural consequence. Those who would incorrectly have you believe that it is a legislative objective try to rewrite history by making a consequential result into an active cause.
"Conservatives don't care about actual Americans - they just care about politics & elections. Ron Paul even said that federal assistance is unconstitutional"
Wanting to provide federal assistance may show how you care about those on the receiving end of that assistance, but it shows how little you care about the taxpayers that have to pay for that assistance. Besides which, conservatives show they care more for Americans than liberals through their private donations to private charities. Of which, Conservatives give much more to than liberals.
What is the orgin of the Haunting Light in or around Joplin, Missouri?
I have seen the "spook light" near Joplin. Actually, it's about 15 miles south of Joplin and near the Oklahoma border. I've heard stories that it was ball lightening, swamp gas and car lights reflecting off of low clouds. It's also been speculated that it's due to minerals in the ground. I understand the origins go back to before highways and to Indian legend.
Years ago, it was quite popular for teens and young adults to go "parking" in this area with their girl friends. There was a concession stand in business maybe in the mid 50s to early 60s.
Usually, you see it on the road about a mile away moving down and up. If you chase it, it will always be in the distance. Sometimes, it will appear nearby in the woods small like a cigarette and red, then get larger and closer. Sometimes it will appear in the distance as one light and then split in two.
I've heard that if seen in a telescope, the light is fuzzy.
One time, we saw it low in the sky with a yellow light and red on the bottom. The fact is, no one knows really what it is.
This is similar to what is called the "brown mountain" lights that is in either North or South Carolina.

Where can I get mushroom compost or soil for gardening by the truck load around Joplin missouri?
Mushroom compost is usually sold by the bag at garden centers. If you go to an independent nursery they should be able to sell it to you by the truckload. Nurseries use this for most plants, but it's sometimes hard to get them to sell you large amounts. Check several in your area yellow pages & ask around.
I've heard that too, and have lived in Joplin my whole life and have never seen any signs to support it. My uncle is gay, and he moved to Omaha not long after he graduated high scool because it sucked. The one gay bar that was here closed down also. A lot of people around Joplin are hicks, and homophobic. I've never known it any other way. The place could use some culture.
