If you subtract the 60 million who are under 18 years old you have about 250 million who are of voting age and if Obama got 65 million votes, only 26% of those who are of voting age. The fact that only 50% of our population who are of voting age actually vote. Sad, very sad.
But I have one thing to say to those who could have voted but who decided not to, keep your mouths shut as by not voting who gave up your right to complain about what happens politically!

To whom are you speaking? Who is more correct, Jacques or me? The facts are that 65 million is only about 20% of our population and only 26% of our voting age population?

Antarctic Sea Ice Sets Another Record
9/19/2012

Editor’s note: An update from the author has been added to this article on September 20, 2012.

Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data.

I don't blame them. The U.S. should have been following "strict" immigration laws many, many years ago. This would be a completely different Nation for the better. Shoot, I even remember when we had Presidents who actually upheld those laws! Then somebody came along and screwed it all up. What was that guy's name? That's right, no one really knew.
You must mean Ronald Reagan when he passed COBRA and the EMTALA allowing for treatment of illegal aliens at emergency rooms.

Relevance on YOUR post is this, though : Ever heard of cause and effect?
Obama caused our country to be less than it used to be. The effect of his agenda is yet to come to complete fruition,soon he will have to face the truth that his ideology is not good for any of us.

Swiss set up popular vote to end tax breaks that draw wealthy foreigners
By The Associated Press | Associated Press –
GENEVA - Swiss socialists and labour unions have succeeded in putting the country's tax breaks for foreign millionaires up to a popular vote.
The tax breaks introduced 150 years ago have helped attract foreigners like Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad, Formula One champion Michael Schumacher and pop stars Tina Turner, Phil Collins and Shania Twain.
The government said Thursday a petition on the issue drew 103,353 signatures, enough to call for parliamentary debate and national referendum within several years.
Already, four of the nation's 26 cantons, or states, have decided to scrap the breaks that allow the rich to pay a flat fee and avoid income tax.
That boosts local economies and banks, but creates resentment among ordinary people who pay more tax than rich celebrities.
More than 5,000 foreigners use the tax breaks.

Not to worry about Switzerland, Rogue. It will pass the law and just as many legal and illegal rich people will keep depositing their money in their banks, no problem. As to those few 1% "patriots", if you'll excuse the expression, they will just move somewhre else but leave most of their cash in good ole reliable safe Switzerland. It's a country I know extremely well, and I know they'll be fine.

Let's see, last I heard there were about 100 congressmen opposing his nomination of Rice as SOS. Hmmm, that doesn't jive with what you say. That would be because you're talking out of both sides of your neck again. And really, spare us the boring, old, stale, worn-out second paragraph. I see you're making stuff up again too. I've said nothing about any PM. Just more "make believe" on your part. Sad, sad, sad!!!
And I've said nothing about Rice. But YOU linked her to Obama, cheap gossiper. It's all you've got.v

You said Obama was flirting with the Thai PM. Or Rogue said so, same difference.

100 Congressmen? The House of Representatives has 435 members so only 22% of House opposed Rice. Only 42% of the Republican Congressmen (100 out of 235) opposed Rice.
As such, 100 congressmen's opinon doesn't matter much. By the way, it is the senate that confirms the President's appointments not the house.
Tks for the info. You proved LRS wrong once more. Duck, here comes the diatribe.

Ah, neither COBRA or EMTALA gave illegal aliens the right to be treated in emergency rooms. EMTALA just allowed people the right to file a complaint against a hospital who refused to treat the "emergency" condition which is loss of life, eye sight or limb!
The ghetto trash in Atlanta just call 911 and say they are having a hard time breathing and an ambulance picks them up and transports them down town to Grady Memorial where they are checked out. They are then giving a meal card (free lunch) and a MARTA ticket to get them back home.
Oh, do you know what MARTA stands for? Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta!

Manmade climate change "a drop in the bucket" Nov 18, 2008

Canadian scientist Kenneth Tapping of the National Research Council has also noted that solar activity has entered into an unusually inactive phase, but what that means—if anything—is still anyone’s guess. Another solar scientist, Oleg Sorokhtin, a fellow of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, however, is certain that it’s an indication of a coming cooling period.

Sorokhtin believes that a lack of sunspots does indicate a coming cooling period based on certain past trends and early records. In fact, he calls manmade climate change "a drop in the bucket" compared to the fierce and abrupt cold that can potentially be brought on by inactive solar phases.
