When I was in Hawaii in the mid-1070 we had geckos too and my wife was upset. That was when I told her she had a choice between geckos or ..... cockroaches and she decided to live with the geckos!
Our geckos hung out near the windows so it was not like they were running all around the kitchen like cockroaches would have. But they did tend to 'bark' at night.
Last night I scared a black squiggly critter about four inches long. It was on the wall outside the house. It leaped to the overhanging roof scurried a few feel and then let go, falling to the ground and disappeared. I have no idea what it was.

BTW, my g/f saw the "mean black spider" yesterday which I had told her about, and informed me that it was harmless. She shooed it out of the house. She thought it was pretty funny.

True Libertarians, like your socialist-true progressives, make up less than 5% of the voters each. It was Ross Perot who put Clinton in the White House and it was Ralph Nader who blocked Owl Gore.
Third parties cut both ways, usually to the detriment of the voters who voted third party.
Ross Perot was against everything Bush did, not Clinton.

If anything he took votes from Clinton because both were against Bush.

I am always flummoxed by your logic.

The corporate Democratic party wants you to believe the authentic liberal/progressive caused Gore to lose.

Not True!

By the time I'm 70 she'll be only 42. However, generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate) here costs only $1.92 per tablet. I don't plan on slowing down. Not that I need it but I experimented with it, buying from a pharmacy at the Metro Mall. She couldn't believe it. It was like being 25 again. I bought over $1000 worth for only about $200.

The biggest problem with gasoline powered aircraft is that over 90% of them need leaded gasoline, 100LL (Low Lead) but there has been a big push to go to diesel engine power aircraft that use jet fuel.

DeltaHawk Engine Update


Right now there are only a few FAA certified aircraft diesel engines. Most are based on automotive converted engines but one, built by SMA of France, was scratch built. But all of these are hour-stroke engines that are ... HEAVY.
DeltaHawk has bee working on a two-stroke engines which are about 40 pounds less that a comparable Lycoming O/IO-360 engine. And when you consider they use 40% less fuel (60% cheaper), and use readily available Jet fuel, you should see them in a lot of light aircraft real soon.
Since they have a built in super/turbo charger, they will make full power up to at least 15,000 feet PA.
Deltahawk also expects to make a 300 hp V6 engine and a 400 hp V-8 engine which will be a lot cheaper than a turbo prop plane.

Wiretap Denial a Criminal Cover-up
August 10, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/ypukpy
Eight words: "These calls are not intercepted within the country." That's how President Bush has described the so-called "Terrorist Surveillance Program" the president's warrantless wiretapping of communications between persons inside and outside the United States when the government claims a link to al-Qaida. The president said this during a press conference on Dec. 19, 2005, three days after The New York Times revealed the program's existence.

But now it seems those eight words weren't true. In fact, they concealed unlawful conduct.

Over this past weekend, Congress passed a hastily drafted bill amending FISA the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. One of the bill's key provisions amends FISA to allow warrantless wiretapping whenever the target of the surveillance is "a person reasonably believed to be located outside the United States."

In little-noticed testimony before a Senate committee on May 1, director of national intelligence Mike McConnell disclosed the reason why the White House wanted this amendment. He said: "When seeking to monitor foreign persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activity who are physically located in foreign countries, the intelligence community is required under today's FISA to obtain a court order to conduct surveillance." At the same hearing, National Security Agency director Keith Alexander explained that a FISA warrant is required because the communication is "collected in the United States." http://www.law.com/jsp/ca/PubArticleCA.jsp...

NOW investigates a little-known Pentagon program that's been secretly snooping on Americans with the help of local law enforcement Audio
PBS Now Pentagon Spying TALON
How far can the Pentagon go to flush out terrorists in our midst? NOW takes a look at a little-known Pentagon program created by Paul Wolfowitz called TALON, short for "Threat and Local Observation Notice." TALON has been keeping tabs on a wide range of innocent Americans, from student protesters to even one 79-year-old grandmother. Critics allege that much of the information generated has been unreliable -- particularly from their close collaboration with local law enforcement. Plus author and columnist John Avlon about the political risks of alienating centrists.

I bought out the entire supply at the pharmacy in the mall. I used my irish passport for ID on the credit card purchase. The demure Filipinas behind the counter filled my order. Later I bet they were telling their friends about the Irishman with the cute Filipina g/f who bought out the entire store supply of Viagra. My friends are already asking for some. One friend in West Hartford, CT sent me some $$$ by Western Union and an extra $20 for a bottle of wine.

Well way back then I was in my mid-20s and being the typical young male I just had to find out so I provoked a few to bit me. They pinched hard when they bit but drew no blood. Maybe the ones over there are bigger and badder than the ones in Hawaii.

To prefer Obama to Romney is not adulation Frank. Do you idolize Romney?
Romney was not my first choice,but in the election he was my only choice. Why would any one vote for someone that already failed our country his first four years? Same in 2008,McCann was not even one of my first five choices,but there must have been 100,000 better choices than Obama. I was impressed by Obama for about two minutes in 2004,but it didn't take more that two minutes to realize he was not serving the best interests of our country. Obama was making promises that he never intended to keep and in fact he was telling people what they wanted to hear,not what he was actually intending to do. We now know what he was intending to do was keep as many people as possible unemployed and on welfare.

You do realize that our Military is Socialistic?
Also Medicare and Social Security?
Do You?
I spent the most part of three decades in the military and I found it to be the ideal of meritocracy. There are many ranks in the military,someone could move up from private all the way to Sergent Major of the Army based on their merit,or even rise to Army Chief of Staff. Of course Medicare and Social Security are social programs,no one has ever denied that. The problem with those programs is that the hardest working people don't benefit any more than the laziest people.
