Daily Photo – The Raised Bones of Arlington National Cemetery
My friend John P from One Man’s Blog suggested that I visit this place while I am on my little trip to DC. It was already on my list, but he bumped it up! I went there to shoot at sunset, and got back to the hotel in enough time to process.

To be honest, it’s quite difficult to make 365 images per year that pass my quality standards! Really! Maybe it looks easy or something… but I assure you it is not! Hehe…

Anyway, it was just my young son and I wandering around the cemetery for a few hours as the sun was going down on a dreary and rainy day here in Washington, D.C. Arlington National Cemetery is considered hallowed grounds around here, and it was a life-changing experience for my son.

After a long walk in a nearly empty cemetery, we made our way to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The entire facility was closing, and the guard told us it was time to leave. I talked to him for a moment, and he let my son and I through. We went to the steps of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and sat there for a long time. We were totally alone except for the solitary Honor Guard who was guarding the tomb. There was a light rain and not much day remaining. The Honor Guard walked towards one end of the path, clicked his heels, checked his gun, stood guard, then strode back and forth along his short route. It was completely amazing to be there alone in the rain… just watching this happen again and again.

Should affirmative action be abolished with Hispanics and Black being the majoirty in so many areas?

Question by el tonto: Should affirmative action be abolished with Hispanics and Black being the majoirty in so many areas?
What’s the point now of having it? I do think there is a conspiracy to make the white race as taboo as possible in America. There was an article in a local newspaper that said many corporations are trying to avoid hiring anybody white (even hispanics of Euro ancestory that look white) since many of their customers are non-white and don’t feel comfortable dealing with white or “white-looking” people. Over 150 of the Fortune 500 companies admitted to this. However, the paper refused to mention the names due to “confidential agreements”.
To answer the first post…Atlanta, Detroit, Memphis and many, many more.
The City of Atlanta, Detroit, and Memphis are DIFFERENT than the states they are in. Yes GA is 70% white YET INSIDE THE CITY LIMITS OF ATLANTA IT IS 65% BLACK>>>GET IT?
The article was talking about cities not states!!!!!!!!!

Answer by nostradamus02012
what area of the nation african americans the majority?

to respond to your preposterous sweeping generalization i found a study of the census in 2000 that concludes that the population of the state of georgia was 70.08% white or 29.02% black. according to this study, the only state in the usa that has a black majority is D.C.

not georgia, not tennessee, not michigan.

there are some cities where there is a black majority – but not a single state other than D.C. that has a black majority.

tosses a bit of water on your ‘facts.’

read for yourself and see how preposterous you statements are.

i still don’t get it – you found a few cities that are majority black and make a sweeping generalization based on a skewing of that fact.

black still make up less than 18% of the population of the usa.

if you have a point to make, you still haven’t made it. i haven’t even thought about your comments about affirmative action, because you simply have failed to state your case in any meaningful way.

but i’m really glad that you finally quoted some facts (that i presented to you) in your, er…. question.

How should I handle being boxed in by other parked motorcycles?

Question by darknessinlight666: How should I handle being boxed in by other parked motorcycles?
While I was out, I passed by my motorcycle and saw that two other motorcycles were sharing my space. Since all of the spaces surrounding it were taken by cars, my bike was completely boxed in. However, I wasn’t actually planning on leaving for several hours, so I didn’t think anything of it, assuming that they would be gone before I returned. They were. My question is: if I needed to leave before they returned what would be the correct way deal with this situation? In case local laws might apply, this was in Houston, Tx.

How I do tell a buyer without offending her, that she is being cheap and not listening to what I have to say?

Question by BOOOOOO: How I do tell a buyer without offending her, that she is being cheap and not listening to what I have to say?
I sell on eBay. One of the items I sell is the 24/7 eyeliner travel set from urban decay. I have a bunch.

So this lady from the Philippines put in an offer for 2 at 25 each after her offer for 20 and 24 were declined and I let her have them for that much.

BIG MISTAKE!

She then asks if she can buy the rest for 20 each. So if you guys know about how ebay and paypal works with their fees, I’d pretty much make nothing.

So, I told her, if she’s willing to cancel her auction, I can get reversed the fees from selling the items, and give her 4 (just 4) at 22 a pop.

So she agrees, but she gave me the hardest time! She was asking me for discounts left and right!

She wanted 3 dollars taken off since I was sending it out local (the auction was FREE SHIPPING).
She wanted freebies, I told her she was getting a sample.

So, despite telling her I cannot let her have more than 4 sets, she is asking for more. What do I tell her? She doesn’t understand even though I told her I wouldn’t make much money and that I can sell them for at least 5 dollars more, she expects to buy more.

Do I block her from bidding? What can I do? I sold them to her outside ebay, so if I got on her bad side, she would sing like a bird to them about it. Or, if she doesn’t know it’s not allowed, I could get a negative.

How do I fix a problem I should have completely avoided by just saying “no” in the first place?

Best answer:

Answer by tid
You’ve dug yourself into a pretty deep hole by going to her outside of eBay. If you’re going to do anything about it, make sure you are very careful and have thought it out carefully before you do anything.

At this point, I reckon you can just try as much as possible to close this one deal with as small a loss as possible. Just remember next time to say “no”.

How do I start being an extreme coupon-er?

Question by Emily: How do I start being an extreme coupon-er?
If you haven’t seen this show called Extreme Couponing, it’s about people who save up tons of coupons and go online and find them, or dig in garbage cans for them. They go to the store and buy thousands of dollars worth of stuff, and end up paying like $ 3 for everything. It’s insane. I just want to know how I could possibly get started on it. Any help appreciated (:

Best answer:

Answer by Smartass
short answer : keep watching the show.

Long answer :
a) first, know what you want to buy or need. No point in couponing for things you don’t buy, the LAST thing you want is to spend money you dont have to, just to save some, and pile your house with trash

b) Look out for coupons, in your mail, online, ask friends.

c) When you find a deal, SHARE IT, your friends will do likewise.

d) see sites like slickdeals.net, groupon.com

e) there are other strategies such as store frozen food, buy expired & reduced prices…etc.

As you can see, these people don’t need a savings account to save money.

How can I keep my 3yr old son from being subjected to his father who deals drugs and was abusive?

Question by babigirl4life: How can I keep my 3yr old son from being subjected to his father who deals drugs and was abusive?
I was never married to the father. I left him once I found out I was pregnant and he refused to stop the drugs. I am now married to a man who has raised and supported my son since he was 4months old. He would like to adopt, but since I have married the father has now decided to take me to court. First it was for visitation, now he has put a contempt charge against me for not allowing him to see my son. I have tried reporting his drug dealings to the local police and Crimestoppers with no avail, the father moved to another residence and the investigation on him stopped. Not only does this man deal drugs out of his home, he was also physically abusive to me when we lived together. The only person that was his abuse was his 6yr old daughter who I’m sure will not testify against him. I am desperate now because my son has serious heart defects and is autistic. I live in Texas, the father lives in Oklahoma. If anyone can help me I would be very appreciative.
I have had two attorneys so far. Both were bad choices as they have not helped my case at all. I was told by both I would have to have proof he was dealing drugs (which I do not have since he has never been arrested for a drug charge and the local police were never able to catch him since he moved from the address I gave them). The only person who saw his physical abuse was his 6yr old daughter. I know she will not testify against her father. I could only recruit people who would be testify on hearse, no one actually saw the abuse other than his daughter. Surprisingly the courts have been on his side completely. I am at a loss on how to protect my son. I am going to try getting the Child Welfare and my son’s Dr involved and see if I can get anywhere
