Where Are The Best Gas Prices In My Area?


During the harsh economy that we are all suffering through, we need to save wherever we can. Most noticeable, except for food,  is the cost of fuel for our vehicles. 

Fortunately, many gas stations, whether in price competition (“price war”) with nearby stations or with the use of “discount cards” issued through particular merchants, we can usually save a few dollars when we fill up. But, knowing where those stations are and the current prices can be a dilemma, for we can’t afford to drive around to check them out!

Chief Justice John Roberts – Friend or Foe?

 

Most Americans, especially “Patriots”, waited with baited breath for the release of the determination of the Supreme Court regarding the “Obamacare” (or “Affordable {ha!} Health Care”) law. Most on both sides of the issue were surprised, if not shocked, by the outcome.

Basically, many of the portions of the law were approved as Constitutional, including the “mandate” part that allows the government to force you to buy something you don’t want.

The Court was divided down the middle – four for and four against. The shocking part was the tie-breaking vote, cast by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts!

Traffic Distractions

I think everyone knows that texting or even operating a cellular device while driving is asking for disaster. Many states have enacted legislation to outlaw those practices – even others ban the use by anyone in a moving vehicle.

I personally do not use or answer cell phone calls while driving (also I do not use the texting feature at all).

 

World Court – Something To Be Feared!

Ever hear of the World Court? Many may have heard of it but do you know what that entails? What “authority” does it have? Does it affect us (in the USA)?

The name “World Court” generally refers to the International Court of Justice, an arm of the United Nations, located in the Hague, the Netherlands. It is composed of fifteen justices, from different countries, as dictated by the United Nations. The current Chief Justice, or President of the Court, is from Czechoslovakia.  All justices have  three-year, staggered terms.
