House leadership draws flak on farm bill defeat

Fallout from the farm billís failure is erupting behind closed doors.

Almost a week after Republicans failed to pass the nearly $1 trillion, five-year agricultural package through the House, Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders are feeling the heat from frustrated lawmakers sick of screw-ups.

Republican Reps. Kristi Noem of South Dakota and Kevin Cramer of North Dakota separately stood up at a GOP meeting Wednesday and confronted their leadership about its bumbling legislative strategy and inability to figure out a way forward on the massive legislation, according to multiple sources at the meeting.

Noem, who once served in Republican leadership, took aim squarely at Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). She reminded him that he controls the House floor, and she drilled Cantor hard on his precise plans to mop up the mess, several Republicans who attended the meeting said. Cantor wasnít able to outline a plan that satisfied Noem, and he blamed Democrats for the billís defeat.

Noem ó usually a quiet figure in GOP circles ó also warned the 61 Republicans who opposed the farm bill after voting for tougher work requirements for food-stamp recipients that she will not be supporting them in the future. Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) and other lawmakers were later heard on the floor backing Noem in her heated dispute with Cantor.

Temecula cooler than other Inland Empire locations due to gap in mountains allowing ocean breezes that facilitate vineyards.

You don't fit thatdescription so, that makes you look more of an ass to argue someones point that doesn't serve your interest. Your logic is, all scientist haven't agreed on the subject so, it's not true. My position is, I can feel it with my own flesh. I don't need a scientist to tell me what I feel. That would make me a trueobserver of the topic & you a Republican robot, get it now?
The Earth has been warming for over 10,000 years.
The Earth has been without the polar ice caps multiple times in recent Earth history.
Every time the ice caps melsted the lowland areas were flooded as the sea transgressed.
The ice caps will melt even if humans never existed.

What are you clowns doing to prepare for this certainty?

I'll tell you. You're wasting everything promoting some bullshit theory you have to invent fraudulent science to "prove" to serve some political agenda.

How about faceing reality and planning for the inevitable melting of the ice caps and the rise of sea level, flooding every city in every country near the coast.

In the SE where many homes are total electric the "yearly" cost for hot water could represent 30% to 40% of the "total" hours used.
Solar hot water is worthwhile for many paying for itself within a matter of a few to several years depending on family size. Additionally, many power providers, Duke Energy, FPLE etc offer handsome rebates-incentives etc for qualified units installed by professionals.
Like I said, the roi is quick if all you're doing is heating water.

Maybe you could try googling reading comprehension.

Barnes and Noble actually encourages people to camp out, figuring they will buy coffee and food from their cafe to make up for lagging book sales.

Some folks use it as an office, conducting small meetings. Others use it for conducting job interviews, perhaps because they want a neutral site.

The GOP DID have a pretty good civil rights record until they were taken over by southern racists. Neither Party's record before the shift in the 60's-70's has much at all to do with how those parties are today.

As far as making MLK a Republican its just more of the stupid little sht the fringe loonies cook up that the idiot masses lap up.

I really didn't much care what was going on with Paula Deen until I read the complaint filed by Lisa Jackson against Paula Deen and her brother, Earl "Bubba" Hiers, but now, I am disgusted and hope Paula Dean Enterprises loses everything.

Granted, the major complaints are against Paula's very ignorant brother who refers to Ms. Jackson as "my little Jew girl" but Paula Deen stood by and did nothing about his pornography and abuse of African American staff members. It's hard to believe that, in this day and age, they would allow white staff members to use the customer restrooms but deny the same privilege to African-Amerian staff members.

You be the judge.
