Mar 17th 2013 3:39AM Hey loser, Sell one of your guns, and pay your rent. Using your status as a gun owner being discriminated against has little standing as an arguement when the property owner has guns, as well as other residents. It sounds more likely to me that your attempting to hustle some money from a lawsuit. Pay your bills deadbeat.
Jan 8th 2013 10:12PM Stay ignorant my friend. The radio buffoons who lead you, do not speak the truth. More importantly, your comment doesn't belong on this site. This is about travel, not politics. Take your boorish behavior to the proper forum.
Jan 8th 2013 9:59PM So what is the political climate in Reno, Salt Lake City and Daytona Beach? I'll give you a hint. They're predominantly GOP, by a long shot. So why are they failing? Get your twisted political fallacy philosophy out of the travel sections. We didn't come here for that. You are truly lost. Go ahead, hide away in your little "Christian" berg, passing judgement on the rest of the world. I seriously doubt that any of us will see you in heaven, as you still haven't grasped humility, forgiveness, and leaving judgement to a higher power.
Jan 8th 2013 9:46PM It's not Angeleno's that are watching the Kardasians. Don't blame us for them, and the other Honey Boo Boo's of the world.
Jan 8th 2013 9:41PM Having lived in Los Angeles most of the last 30 years, I've experienced it's highs and lows. The smog claims are so distorted. Basically memories of the 70's. I've encountered worse air all over the country at times. Sure there are phonies here, as there are everywhere, but unfortunately, we seem to attract those that once resided next door to wherever you live. But there are a lot of genuine people here, and probably the most diverse population in the nation. There are many cultural opportunities available here, from cuisine to art. We have some wonderful museums, and our outdoor experiences are varied, and close. You can snow ski in the morning, and surf at night. As well as excellent mountain biking/hiking available within 15 minutes from any point in the city/county. Other than the Santa Monica Mountains, we lack a National Park System presence.
As to Salt Lake City, I don't believe we should have to include the number of establishments that you can imbibe alcohol, to make it a fun city. There isn't enough alcohol in the state of Utah to make SLC fun. All I ever get there is treated like an outsider. Maybe I don't have that secret Mormon appearence that earns me a friendly greeting. I've tried multiple times, and have only had miserable experiences there. If you want to visit the great National Parks, and other sites in Utah, I highly recommend going up to Ogden. That is an extremely friendly city, with great food, and a short distance to SLC if you really feel you need to visit. And going out to Bonneville Salt Flats is a must.
Reno isn't very exciting anymore. As you drive around you see many once notable casinos boarded up. It's close to becoming a ghost town. The notable exceptions are some good basque food, and the Harrahs Automotive Museum.
Detroit shouldn't be at the top of anyones list, but I have had good times there, and there are certainly many good museums, and points of historical interest.
If I were to pick a city to avoid in Florida, it's pretty much a pick-em. Unless you have a large wallet and kids, avoid Orlando. And again the large wallet is pretty much necessary for Miami as well. Culturally Daytona Beach only has Nascar, and the beach. But is a reasonable cost vacation to the seaside at times, but not much else. Especially for good food. It's all chains, and bland local food. At least you can get some good Cuban food in Miami.
Dec 3rd 2012 11:07PM I believe that it's time for her to get a dishonorable discharge. She is in direct conflict with the oath she took when she became a soldier in the United States Army. We need soldiers to support their commander without question. Anything else would be treasonist behavior.
Oct 25th 2012 6:00AM Having been a regular visitor for many years, I am much more wary of visiting the northern border cities. I could put up with the hassles of the almost regular police shakedowns in Tijuana. But the confrontations with some "locals" and the reduced number of other travelers to find safety in numbers has made me choose other locales to visit. Ensenada is still nice, but even the drive down is a little tense. But anywhere in South Baja is a treat. I have never had anything but the best experiences there. If your looking for a city with nightlife and daytime charm, go to La Paz, and if you want to get away to some quiet beach time, visit Loreto. Either place will bring you joy.
Aug 7th 2012 3:42AM These international Biospheres are only designated at a few parks in our country, and at many sites around the world. If you had taken the time to ask about the program you would have realized that these locations are significant enough that the world agrees they need protecting. The majority funding for these sites in the US still comes from park visitors and and the federal government. But is subsidized in part from the UN, so as to help maintain the protections of the parks. There are over 500 worldwide in over a 100 countries. There are 47 in the US. Most notably the Everglades, Big Thicket, Big Bend, Great Smokey Mtns, Congaree, Glacier, Isle Royale, Olympic and Yellowstone. If you have visited any of these locations, you realize the importance of saving these locations, and if it takes worldwide intervention, I have no problem. This program only preserves parks that are natural environments, so you won't see this sign at Los Alamos or Gettysburg. You've got a computer, use it to educate yourself before posting irrational comments.
Aug 7th 2012 3:30AM Those who fail to remember the past will repeat them. That is the reason for keeping places like this for a historical reference. There are things worth saving in our nation and they provide an education for our youth, and the world. They also offer conservation for our populace, both future and past generations, to realize what wonders do exist. I have a feeling that you have never visited our National Parks, and without experiencing them, have no sense of their importance.
Jul 27th 2012 4:56PM The best indicator that this is a frivolous lawsuit is the amount that they are demanding. If it held some validity it would be in the multiple millions, but the law firm knows it is just cheap enough that it may cost Hilton more in attorney fees and bad publicity to fight it, even though the hotel bore zero responsibility.
