Student Barack Obama probably co-authored the college papers that he turned in as his own work.

Perhaps you should do a little reading to know the real deal. Here look it up if you can.

Bush's Speech Before The Joint Session Of Congress After 9/11

"It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against each other, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime"

Now libtards quit flapping your gums!!!!!

Neither is voting present on many bills proposed requiring one to take a stand.
Let me rephrase the question. Who or what did he lead that qualified him to take on the leadershp of the presidency?
Selective amnesia. Go to the birfer site, no one cares.

"The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – which oversees regulations for mortgages and other credit products – and a major bank regulator will be closely watching the highest court in the land this fall.

Bloomberg
Richard Cordray

That’s because the Supreme Court on Monday decided to hear a case about whether the White House violated the constitution and did not have the power to make certain recess appointments last year to fill vacancies to the National Labor Relations Board.

The highest court’s decision on the case will also impact the appointment of Richard Cordray, who directs the recently formed CFPB, since he was installed at the bureau is the same controversial way as the NLRB nominees were approved for the labor board. All this means the consumer bureau’s existing rules for mortgages and future rules could be in trouble."

Doesn't really work the way you're thinking, generated electricity goes onto the grid for distribution.
No this wasn't planned for but was accounted for in design. Problem was the earthquake was beyond the design basis by a factor of around 10 (that's 10 times more powerful than the plant was designed to withstand) and the tsunami was 3-4 meters above design basis. You can't base designs on theoretical worst-case-in-history events.
Gee. Every time I have been in a power plant I thought the lights in the conference room were fed directly from the generator.

Every engineered facility, power plant or otherwise, has a design basis. Sometimes that basis may be exceeded. As we learned (or have failed to learn) from Katrina.

There's some concerns over China which we don't have any control over and the Fed is hinting that they may cut back on bond buying in anticipation of continued economic recovery. There's also the normal profit taking that occurs when the market hits highs.

Agency Busy Spying on Three Hundred Million People Failed to Notice One Dude Working for It

Posted by Andy Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A U.S. intelligence agency was so busy spying on three hundred million Americans that it failed to notice one dude who was working for it, a spokesman for the agency acknowledged today.

“I guess we were so busy monitoring the everyday communications of every man, woman, and child in the nation that we didn’t notice that a contractor working for us was downloading tons of classified documents,” the agency spokesman said.“It’s definitely embarrassing, for sure.”


Despite having an annual budget in the neighborhood of ten billion dollars, the agency had no idea that a dude who was working for it five days a week was getting ready to send those classified documents to a journalist who would then tell everybody in the world.

“Maybe if we hadn’t been so busy keeping our eye on those other three hundred million people, we would have noticed that this one guy who was working right under our noses was up to something totally fishy,” the spokesman said.“But you know what they say about hindsight.”

As for where that guy who leaked the documents was planning to go next, the spokesman admitted,“We don’t have a clue.”

“I know what you’re thinking—an intelligence agency probably should know that Hong Kong has an international airport and that its departures board lists flights to Moscow and whatnot,” the spokesman said.“I don’t know what to say. Maybe we need a bigger budget or something.”

Snapshot: U.S. Obesity Rate Ticking Up
U.S. adult obesity rate up to 27.1% in 2013, from 26.2% in 2012
by Alyssa Brown
WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The adult obesity rate in the U.S. thus far in 2013, at 27.1%, is on pace to surpass rates in prior years. It is up from 26.2% in 2012 and much higher than the 25.5% found in 2008.

Come on fatties can you all have a frickin' salad once in awhile? This is just going to lead to higher healthcare costs. You fat people are the reason Homer's health insurance goes up every year.
Now forget about that fast food burger and fries with the large chocolate shake and a large soft ice cream for desert and go have a salad for lunch instead, then go for a long walk.
The biggest part of the "obesity problem" is that the government standards defining obesity are ridiculous. Any male with more muscle definition than a scarecrow like Obama is labeled obese.

Galt always remembers David Duval, a slightly chunky great golfer whose game went to shit when he became a weight loss freak.
