Been real preoccupied the past few days. Taking the plunge and buying a house now before interest rates go up higher.

Which will probably be taking up a lot of my time in the upcoming weeks. But there's a lull now - of which there will probably be a lot of those too.

Your failure to understand what happened in Europe is not washed away by calling people slugs.
The Euro was at risk of collapsing.
Why is that important?
Euro is the currency used by 17 countries
Solution:
Same as most businesses use. Trim budgets and set loan rules.
Austerity/trimming bloated budgets is painful for spend happy countries. But, the alternative would be more disastrous.
If austerity fails so does the Euro.
austerity is failing. we're talking about Greece aren't we? so where is the success story? 5 years down the road? while the rich get more and the poor get less?

The guy on the plant floor grabs the plug marked "Moocher Eed" and plugs it into the generator.

Your above post is a prime example of why you are the laughing stock of this thread. You post words that make no sense. I commented on the ignorance you posted regarding Inland Power being my electricity provider. They are not. As usual you are/were/always wrong. Avista gets most of it's electricity from dams/water and wind farms which happen to be renewable sources. Just once think before you post.

You know, the people you reference should be overly thankful they live in a country with enough worthy people so other people who made themselves worthless can actually work for a minimum wage. Otherwise, without those people you hate, there wouldn't be anything for them to do, regardless of what minimum wage is paid.
They made their lives what it is. Now, they have to live the life they made for themselves. When other people see that, fewer people will make the same self-destructive mistakes and decisions the people you reference made.
Unemployed & those woking hard but not making enough to no longer qualify for food stamps are "worthless".

Wow.

Are they more worthless than a pretend oilfield engineer whose salary is subsidized by the federal government?

We have an economy, that according to you right whiners, can't exist without worthless people to work at minimum wage?

Obama and Putin share a common hatred of American exceptionalism.
Obama isn't even leading from behind, and we suspect he's curled up on the White House floor sucking his thumb.

Apparently, once again with respect to Syria, the White House was caught off guard by events they are frantically reacting to instead of shaping. Speaking to CNN's Jake Tapper, a White House official publicly responded to Russian President Vladmir Putin's New York Times op-ed with the admission that Putin "now owns" and has "fully asserted ownership" of America's current foreign policy focal point; pushing Syria to surrender its chemical weapons:

“That’s all irrelevant,” the White House official said in response [to Putin's op-ed].“He put this proposal forward and he’s now invested in it. That’s good. That’s the best possible reaction. He’s fully invested in Syria’s CW disarmament and that’s potentially better than a military strike – which would deter and degrade but wouldn’t get rid of all the chemical weapons. He now owns this. He has fully asserted ownership of it and he needs to deliver.”

On its face, the lack of statesmanship in the language of "owns this" is troubling enough. And while it is apparent that what the White House is trying do here is frame a failure to rid Syria of its chemical weapons as a personal failure for Putin,

ONCE AGAIN WE HAVE A WHITE HOUSE PLAYING CHECKERS--no make that Candy Land-- AS PUTIN PLAYS THREE-DIMENSIONAL CHESS.

Zero’s story changes by the moment.
This kind of crap only plays if you have the media 100% in the tank to fly cover for you. But now Zero is being exposed on the international stage and it is comical and tragic at the same time how these morons are trying to sell their parallel reality to a world that sees them for what they are.

Much as I enjoy seeing the Obama Regime exposed, it is not good for the American President to be seen as a fool by the world, enemies and friends alike.

Obama is so anxious to not be blamed for anything that could go wrong, that he is willing to allow the KGB drive the bus...

Obama, you-are-a P-U-S-S-Y!! And they say “when you’re in a hole, stop digging”. But Obama is such a narcissist P-U-S-S-Y, and his administration a bunch of elitists, they can’t resist opining on everything.

You just can not help yourself can you. One more time you try to change the subject. "John Galt: commented simply on the calorie count of water and diet soda. He made no comments on the fact they are worse than water. "real dumb" do you practice being stoopid or is it just a natural thing?

Of course, environmentalists hate those evil dams.

Syria is not really about chemical weapons anymore. It's about maneuvering the United States into a position where they have to support the Assad government. And, that plan is working unbelievably well. Way to go, Mr. President.
Next time, just follow the rule book where it says don't commit treason and help the enemy of the United States. That usually keeps a president out of trouble, and makes decisions easier.
Now, Obama is in a position where he has to sabotage the chemical weapons proposal to satisfy Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Any predictions as to what Obama will do?(As if it isn't obvious)
Look at what Obama says that he wants in Syria--he wants Assad's chemical weapons stockpile either destroyed by a U S missile strike or by a negotiation led by Russia and France to have Assad's chemical weapons delivered to international control for eventual destruction. That outcome wouldn't be aiding al Qaeda in Syria , but keep Assad's weapons of mass destruction from ever falling into their hands . It would be quite a diplomatic accomplishment if Obama and Putin could pull it off and create new momentum to move towards the international Geneva I agreement at ending the Syrian civil war.
Further,it was never the Obama policy to remove Assad from power--that's what the neocons led by John McCain, James Inhofe, and Lindsey Graham were hoping to convince the President to do. So,'D B Writer, you're so ready to get the U S military heavily involved in another Middle East war before we've even finished getting out of the two previous two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? Weakening Assad's military command & control and army would be playing right into the hands of the most powerful, best organized rebel groups fighting Assad that also happen to be the craziest, most extremist groups in Syria . The diplomat route to work with Russia and Iran who share our own fear and anxiety over the spread of chemical weapons appears to be the more rational solution and best option for success right now with the least number of bad outcomes .

I bet you are one of those people who when their credit cards get full you just apply for another one. Just like my neighbor. Major credit card debt. Refinanced his house several times at ever higher mortgage payments by claiming the house was worth more. Which it was. Just lost his job. No money in the bank. Late 40's. Has steel bars on his spin so a lot of work he is trained for is out. Says he has to find a job that pays $25 an hour. Wife has to find a job. My guess is I will be getting a new neighbor soon.

Balfour Declaration of 1917

Quote:
The Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom's Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to "Baron Rothschild" ("Walter Rothschild", "2nd Baron Rothschild"), a leader of the "British Jewish community", for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

Quote:
The text of the letter was published in the press one week later, on 9 November 1917.[2] The "Balfour Declaration" was later incorporated into the Sèvres peace treaty with the Ottoman Empire and the Mandate for Palestine. The original document is kept at the British Library.

Dumbass Dave does not understand that most states do not allow you to choose your electric supplier.

Dumbass Dave is stuck in Pennsyltucky.

Dumbass Dave doesn't even know that "West Penn Power" exists as a name only and that the company is First Energy, formerly Ohio Edison. In the power industry, you can't tell the players without a scorecard.

A question for my tech savvy friends out there. Have an Epson printer that is pulling the paper to one side and will not load. Any idea of a quick fix or should I just by a new one?
