They knew about the IRS scandal nearly two years ago. You can't tell me everyone in the White House knew, including his Chief of Staff, and Obama knew nothing?? It just shows how corrupt this administration is. Chicago politics at it's best!

What seems so insane to me is this administration seems to be clueless about "EVERYTHING". The president and Holder are either the most dumba$$ people who ever were in charge or they are truly habitual liars. Either way if they don't know or they are lying this just shows how big government is truly a bad thing and why our founding fathers were against it.These SOBs need to go.
I lived in Hardburly back when,,I remember the post office burning-scared me to death,and the 1st time they took us up to the pond I thought it was the ocean-that was the only time we got to go. I remember the bus coming to pick us up to go to town on Saturday and if we were lucky enough to get a 'floating' balloon we'd walk with it up and down the sidewalk-showing it off then a few would gather and we'd let it go watching as it went out of sight. Does anyone remember the Lady that had a daughter and they would both dress like cowboys-cowgirls-and she made their clothes. Also when the creek got big when it'd go down we would go treasure hunting-wading all the way. And the Camp Houses. We lived on 3 streets I think. That's how it worked,if a family moved out of a house and went elsewhere someone else in the Camp would move their belongings to that house-and it was'nt like moving today-needing 2 or 3 big trucks-by the time the man got off work in the mines the wife-friends and kids could have them moved. We'd walk a country mile to trade funny books-make high stepping walking shoes with empty cans and string or lay a can down and tromp on it so it would stick to our shoes. Mama always fussed saying we were destroying our shoes-and if we could find a Sears catalog-we'd go up on the hill to see who could make a plane fly the longest. Once in a while we got to go to the showhouse-and the boarding house-not allowed to walk on that side of the road-I finally learned why-guess they carried on a lot in that place. My Grandfather got killed in the mines there. I've seen the list of miner's killed in that mine-not all were listed but so sad-one was a father and his twins.And the names of some of the workers-definetly a lot of ppl from another country. Sitttting on the front porch eating popcorn or just made chocalate candy-and dear old Dr. Jingles,,,
Possible patchy frost Special Weather Statement for Perry Co. KY Issued by The National Weather Service Jackson, KY

... PATCHY FROST POSSIBLE TOWARDS DAWN SATURDAY MORNING...
A DRY... COLD CANADIAN AIR MASS IN PLACE ACROSS THE REGION COMBINED WITH CLEAR SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS WILL DRIVE TEMPERATURES DOWN INTO THE MID 30S IN MANY OF OUR VALLEY AREAS OVERNIGHT. AS A RESULT PATCHY FROST COULD DEVELOP TOWARDS DAWN... MAINLY IN OUR MORE SHELTERED LOCATIONS. IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO PROTECT ANY PLANTS WHICH ARE ESPECIALLY SENSITIVE TO FROST IF YOU RESIDE IN THE NORMALLY COLDER VALLEY LOCATIONS.

Plus I want to try and bring a few more jobs to the area!
