Everyone is dependent on government you vomitous cretin. Corporations are especially dependent on roads built by the government to move their goods they depend on local police and fire departments to protect their property and the courts to enforce their contracts and property rights. We depend on the government to keep our air and water clean. Workers depend on government regulations to keep workplaces safe so that a job is not an exercise in survival.

Sandy Springs, Georgia - The City that Outsourced Everything
While cities across the country are cutting services, raising taxes and contemplating bankruptcy, something extraordinary is happening in a suburban community just north of Atlanta, Georgia.

Since incorporating in 2005, Sandy Springs has improved its services, invested tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure and kept taxes flat. And get this: Sandy Springs has no long-term liabilities.

This is the story of Sandy Springs, Georgia—the city that outsourced everything.

Approximately 8 minutes.

Patty,

You lack the ability to assign context to thoughts. Comparing a current political agenda of the leftwing Democrat Party with basic reasons why governments exist is just silly. This is why you will never amount to anything more than a blue collar worker or clerk. The Democrats need people like you who cannot reason. You are putty in their hands.

He didn't hand pick this war, did he? Nah, Infact he voted against it! Now that he's in office he has to do what bush couldn't, wouldn't, or wasn't able to do. It's that old say of sending a boy to do a mans job, but in opposite perspective. Obama is a man doing a boys (George W. Bush's) job! All of a sudden ya'll don't know the meaning of collateral damage now that Obama's in office. Yet you knew the meaning quite well when Bush executed hundreds of thousands of innocent iraqis & over 4,000 American service personnel all on the whim of a lie! A lie to disguise his true purpose behind the invasion, thievery of Iraq oil supplies. Countless military personnel have spoken out against that regime & told their true mission! If Pakistan wanted to stop the drone strike, they would stop harboring & hiding terrorist. Try have WMDs! They could easily take Obama's persistence as an act of war, but they won't. Because they've already been caught out there lying about Bin Laden & a couple other Al Queda leaders! You people don't seem to understand the meaning of war. Bet you'll learn when someone weak is president & another country invades us. You think they gonna be worried about innocent civilians? I seriously doubt it!

Not name calling when it is a fact.
Obama has authorized 193 drone strikes in Pakistan – four times the amount authorized by George W. Bush. According to Global Research, over the past 4 years Obama has authorized attacks in Pakistan which have killed more than 800 innocent civilians and just 22 Al-Qaeda officers.
That constitutes at least 36 civilians per target.
How many of those are children? A new study puts it in perspective.
List of children killed by drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen
Compiled from The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reports

So, only Al Qaeda officers count?

What you leave all other terrorists go free & just kill officers?

When these terrorists go to be among their friends & family, they put those people at risk.

But hey, keep defending Al Qaeda, its about par for the course for you right whines these days.

You don'rt give a rat's ass that Bush killed 4000 soldiers, tens of thousands of civilians in his made up war in Iraq, but God Damn It, those the drone strikes.

Five Appalling Facts About The Monsanto Protection Act Obama Signed Into Law:

The 5 Horrible Facts

1. The ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified (aka GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) seeds, no matter what health issues may arise concerning GMOs in the future.(Studies have revealed severe adverse health effects related to the consumption of genetically modified foods.)

2. The provision’s language was written in collusion with Monsanto on a provision that in effect allows them to keep selling seeds, which can then go on to be planted, even if it is found to be harmful to consumers, is stunning.

3. Many members of Congress were apparently unaware that the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ existed within the bill they were voting on. HR 933 was a spending bill aimed at averting a government shutdown.

In this hidden backroom deal, Sen.[Barbara] Mikulski turned her back on consumer, environmental and farmer protection in favor of corporate welfare for biotech companies such as Monsanto, Andrew Kimbrell, executive director of the the Center for Food Safety said in a statement. This abuse of power is not the kind of leadership the public has come to expect from Sen. Mikulski or the Democrat Majority in the Senate.

4. On Tuesday, Obama signed HR 933 while the rest of the nation fixated on gay marriage as the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument concerning California’s Proposition 8.”(250,000 voters signed a petition opposing the provision.)

5. The precedent, the message it sends is that corporations can get around consumer protections and safety. It suggests that court challenges are a privilege, not a right.

Opponents of the provision say it was jammed through Congress without a proper hearing in relevant committees. I wonder why that would be….

Obama said in 2007 that he would “immediately work to label GM foods if elected, Obama in 2012 appointed a Monsanto executive as his administration’s food safety czar. No wonder the bill was signed by Obama, paving the way for mutant food to hit the grocery store shelves without any obstacles.

How to Be a Troll

Use mass quantities. The most extreme trolling often uses repetition. Intense trolling will repeatedly hit on something that will get a “…really…” response out of people. Usually, the more repetitious a trolling is, the more annoying it will be. Be sure to evaluate how much repetition is enough and how much is too much. Sometimes one hit is all it takes to appropriately troll.

Browse the forums or message board and see if there are any patterns of behavior. Trolling often utilizes repetition to be effective. See patterns of behavior and remember them because they may come in handy when planning your troll.

He received $50,000 from the biotech industry for his reelection campaign. The current secretary of Agriculture, Ann Veneman, was on the board of directors of Calgene Pharmaceuticals, an affiliate of Monsanto. Recently, Linda J.

She was Monsanto’s representative in Washington from 1995 to 2000 and coordinated the company’s strategy to blunt resistance to genetically modified food" See also GM lobby takes root in Bush's cabinet.

Harbison former president of Monsanto and CIA officer for 19 years.

Monsanto: Big Guy on the Block When it Comes to Friends in Washington

Political heavy Monsanto took on an Indiana soybean farmer today in the U.S. Supreme Court over Monsanto's patents of its Roundup-resistant seed.

And, once again, Justice Clarence Thomas was on the bench, hearing the case with the other justices. Thomas worked as a corporate lawyer for Monsanto in the 1970s. Thomas has participated in at least one other case involving the company, Monsanto v. Geertson, which resulted in a favorable decision for Monsanto; Thomas joined the majority in that case.

Clarence Thomas aside, Monsanto has plenty of other ties to Washington. Eight lawmakers own stock in Monsanto, including Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Reps. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.), Alan Lowenthal (D-Calif.), Michael McCaul (R-Texas), Jim Renacci (R-Ohio), Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) and Fred Upton (R-Mich.).

Monsanto itself contributed more than $500,000 to federal candidates in the last election cycle, primarily favoring Republicans. Monsanto spent nearly $6 million on lobbying in 2012, down from its $8.8 million record in 2008. That's still enough to keep Monsanto the big guy on the agribusiness block -- it has spent the most on lobbying by far in the industry since 2008; the American Farm Bureau is the only other to even come close. The majority, by far, of Monsanto's lobbyists have made at least one trip through the revolving door; in-house lobbyist Michael Holland, Jr., for instance, logged 13 years working for various House Republicans before he jumped to Monsanto in 2011.
