"WASHINGTON, D.C.-- As the number of toys with magnets increases, so is the number of serious injuries to children. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is aware of hundreds of complaints that magnets have fallen out of various toys and at least 33 cases where children swallowed loose magnets and required emergency surgery. In addition, a 20-month-old boy from Seattle, Wash. died"

One of my rentals is very close to an elementary school__no sex offenders and (up to) three times the penalty for sale of controlled substances. My cherished tenants there are clean as a whistle but when/if they leave I'm selling that place for whatever someone is willing to pay. Life ain't long enough to own rentals near public schools in FLA.
Huh, wonder if you can get some kind of premium for renting to sex offenders? We're renting our Boca house to a gay couple and they wrote us an offer letter several hundred a month over what we were going to list it for and they've never been late or anything. Our neighborhood seems to be going that route anyway. By the time we moved out there was a female couple next door and a male couple over the back fence. They made the best neighbors.

Republican ‘Plan B’ heads for House vote

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— Defying a White House veto threat, House Republicans on Thursday are pressing forward with a vote on a bill to raise taxes on Americans earning more than $1 million a year, in a bid to increase pressure on President Barack Obama in fiscal-cliff negotiations.

Republican leaders are confident that they have the votes for passage, but the so-called “Plan B” tax bill and a related measure to replace cuts to defense spending would have a short life on Capitol Hill, Senate Democrats made clear on Thursday.

Isn't it always customary to start with plan A and then fall back on plan B? And if it is destined to fail then why not submit plan C?

Actually they should just submit plan Z as they'd have nowhere to go from there.

And, the people that scare the Democrats most aren't looking for defenseless children. In fact, they're not looking for anyone. They are just being prepared for someone who thinks the population of the United States needs to be subjects again.
You didn't join the lottery and tell us what month you think the Democrats will do something like they did when they invented fraudulent evidence to assassinate innocent Americans solely for the purpose of creating a propaganda message about gun control.
Which month do you think the Democrats will do this?
Let's review some history. Bill Clinton did it the month after his first inauguration.
So, I'm going to take February, 2013. March and April are good months. Why don't you take one of those months?
your list has been noted, and will be taken into account when the black helicopter shows up to take you to the FEMA camp in Wyoming/North Korea.

President Barack Obama's job approval rating reached 56 percent in Thursday's edition of the Gallup daily tracking poll, the highest mark since October 13, 2009.

Thursday's release also showed 37 percent disapprove of Obama, the lowest it's been in Gallup's polling since the same October 2009 release.
