Detention center plan is halted

Pendergraph had said federal project on way; Jones says it’s off

Representative Myrick’s continued federal suck up for an earmark?

Ms. Myrick continues to measure her effectiveness as a legislator by her ability to incite fear and mistrust in the population. While doing so, also ingratiates herself with the “insider elite” of the Bush Administration. (Re: CAFTA tie break vote = Bush visit to Belmont — more than a mere coincidence).  

Maybe this could be placed in the downtown section of Gastonia – it would really perk up the place don’t you think?
