Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

California's always the confounding data point. It amazes me that water hasn't choked their growth completely. When I lived out there Temecula was just starting to develop in earnest. I imagine its wall to wall suburbia in the inland valley nowadays.
Mid-to-high end "suburbia" with minimal town house or apartment development. Mostly planned communities with HOAs that prevent ugly sprawl.

Temecula is really too far from either the LA basin or San Diego to be a true suburb. Still lots of open land beginning with the wineries and beyond. Really a very nice place.

Perhaps, but you don't pay directly for the burgers.

Within limits, genetics have a lot more to do with health than does diet.

A regular oven works fine for cooking pizza - I just have a better than average husband, and he likes it brick-oven style.

Ask away.

It's what got Mitt elected.

No, wait. He didn't win. Now how the heck can a FOXbot controversy be ignored by so many?

Maybe you should check one of the skewed/unskewed polls once in awhile. Seems the reality of the looming fiscal cliff is of more importance than a manufactured controversy. And we all know what the polls say about that: if it fails it belongs to the Republicans.

To make that argument you'd have to assume that every time a woman has sex without contraception she'd get pregnant.

There would seem to be little connection between Nate Silver and Susan Rice, but hear me out. The New York Times electoral savant was said to be “controversial.” No one adduced a lick of factual evidence for why he should have been thought to be so, but people on the right just didn’t like his electoral predictions, so they tried to make him controversial. With respect to Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, much the same is true. In reality land, she’s done nothing that ought to be considered all that controversial. But again, conservatives don’t like the outcome—Democrats having the upper hand on foreign policy and national security—so they’re trying to make her controversial.

Standard home ovens won't get hot enough to make a truly good pizza, how hot does your pizza oven get? I want one but the only real ones are commercial grade and who's got that kind of room in their kitchen?

Your premiums are reduced because others are forced to pay for coverage that they do not want.

In our conversations about contraception, only women have sex & are responsible for contraception.

Men, evidently, have nothing to do with in.

The law says contraception needs to be available with out co-pay. It doesn't say free.

I am thinking that most of the "having a freakin fit about this" crowd also are pro-life.

You people do know that these things are related, right?

The number of abortions performed is inversely proportional to the availability of contraception.

I can't believe the right is this f*cking naive.

In the WTF category....

State legislators in Michigan held a hearing on Tuesday to consider House Bills 5684 and 5685, which would allow taxpayers to receive tax relief for unborn fetuses past 12 weeks’ gestation. The proposed legislation is an odd push for Michigan Republicans, partly because Progress Michigan notes the state slashed tax credits for children last year — meaning that although parents living in Michigan do not qualify for additional tax breaks to offset the cost of caring for their own children, they could soon be able to claim a tax credit for an unborn fetus.
