Float permit?

Just curious if a permit is needed for a float? I assume no, but you need one for a dock and a mooring so I can see the state requiring one. Also, just curious if there is a size and/or regulation as...

I am curious as to how I'll make out. So far I have not seen any meaningful change in my pay. My bigger concern is the incredible growing deficit. I remain dumbfounded by the GOP's unwillingness to...

We can similarly look at the poorest states in the nation, or the least safe, or the least healthy - which are "Red states" and blame their issues on failed policies.

Better yet, though, is to...

Think of it this way - would...
