When George W. Bush was president, there were seven attacks on U.S. embassies and many deaths. Why weren’t Republicans outraged? Why didn’t they have hearings?
Doesn’t it scare you that the same group that is unfairly censoring religious and nonprofit groups will be the ones administering your health care?

Typical of our city leaders – they haven’t even made any recommendations to conserve water, yet they are ready to fine us. As always, leaders are looking for ways to raise money, not serve the citizens.
