Weather permitting, this morning's launch of a commercial spacecraft from Wallops Island could be visible from Hampton Roads.

Contrails and possibly stage-separation flames could be seen as Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo craft head for the International Space Station, according to NASA. Launch is scheduled for 10:50 a.m. from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island on the Eastern Shore, but it could be as late as 11:05 a.m.

Orbital said the exhaust from the rocket's first liquid-fuel stage probably will not be visible. "Most likely, if the vehicle can be seen at all during the first stage, it will look like a small bright dot with a small puff of smoke behind it," Orbital said in a statement.

The second stage uses solid fuel and should leave "a significant column of exhaust," the company said. The spacecraft will be about 500 miles away at that point, Orbital said, but, "it is possible that if the day is very clear the smoke left behind will be visible."

NASA said there is a 25 percent chance of low clouds at launch time.

Hey Liberals in here:

If guns are so bad why is Obama giving them to the Al Queda Syrian rebels, why?

Reagan gave guns to Nicaragua's Contras, Obama to Syria's Al Queda Rebels.

See? Liberals are brain dead hypocrites.

Obama came from the core of Chicago corruption.
Obama ran unopposed in the 1998 primary election.
Obama ran unopposed in the 2002 primary election.
In the November 2002 general election, his GOP opponent, Jack Ryan, withdrew after his personal custody records were opened and published in the newspaper. Alan Keyes, Republican, took Ryan's place.
Keyes refused to congratulate Obama and explained it was meant to make a statement against "extending false congratulations to the triumph of what we have declared to be across the line."
Said Keyes, "I'm supposed to make a call that represents the congratulations toward the triumph of that which I believe ultimately stands for...a culture evil enough to destroy the very soul and heart of my country? I can't do this. And I will not make a false gesture."
The wrong black guy won.
WRONG AGAIN STUPID! Alan Keyes is a right wing religious whack job and never even lived in Illinois. Maybe his strident anti abortion, anti gay rhetoric appeals to like minded nitwits like you but not for the majority of Illinois voters who gave him a whole 27% of the vote.
So no idiot, the right black guy won.

quit that. you can't compare the two anymore. Reagan gave Saddam chemical weapons, Saddam gave them to Syria so liberals could call Bush a liar, and so now Obama is trying to take back the chemical weapons Reagan gave Saddam so no one can ever prove that liberals and Saddam were working hand in hand to make Bush look like a liar.

makes perfect sense to you anyway.

Hypocrites?
You mean in the same sense as Teabagging Culls such as yourself waving the flag and Yahooing when we invaded Iraq all of the sudden wringing their hands in Faux Moral outrage at the idea of Obama butting into the affairs of the Nation of Syria?

Oh Yeah Sweden is doing just fine. As a matter of fact better than the USA for over a decade…
C The Gini Coefficient
Gini is a measurement that is used to identify, mathematically, the inequality of individual nations. A rating of one {1} is considered perfect inequality, as a rating of zero {0} is perfect equality.
Nations such as Germany, Norway and Sweden have a Gini of .3 or less.
South Africa and Latin America have a .5 or above.
USA’s Gini in 1980 was .4 Presently it is at 4.7. This is according to the U.N.’s data. Rendering the USA in the category of nations such as Iran and Turkey.
USA’s inequality may be even worse than what the Gini indicates. In the advanced industrial nations, such as may be found in Europe and Scandinavian, their citizens have Universal Education, Universal Health Care from birth to death and large safety nets for securing the laborer’s income security. Where in as the USA, middle class on down have none of these benefits or a small fraction there of. Increasing the insecurity of their citizens in their jobs, homes, education and health.
Insecurity is manifested and fueled by the inequality factor. Greater the inequality the greater is the demise of that nation’s ability to survive in competition with an advanced industrial opponent. Insecurity will manifest emotional dysfunctional laborers quick to rebel. Productivity decreases.
Simply look around to the various nations and observe. Observe those that had a less or no recessions say during 2000 and 2013 that would be a good indicator they are doing something better than US.

Good enough to take over the US mining equipment & industrial drilling markets.

Good enough to have their national debt under 40% of GDP

Good enough to have a trade surplus

When Obama first ran for Senate in Illinois in the Democratic primary, he ran against Blair Hull.
Hull was well ahead in the polls when his sealed divorce papers were leaked to the press.
The press not so surprisingly rode this story and Hull plummeted in the polls. Obama not so surprisingly won.
In the general election, Obama faced a very popular Jack Ryan. It appeared that Obama had no chance against Ryan. But then Ryan’s divorce records and child custody files not so surprisingly were released.
Days after the release, Ryan withdrew from the race. Obama not so surprisingly won again.
It's amazing how many of Obama's opponents withdrew because of leaks to the press about their personal lives.
Axelrod's fingerprints are all over both of the leaks. Corrupt politicians stick together.
Hull's divorce records weren't leaked to the press you damned liar, he released them under public pressure. They showed him to be an abusive spouse with anger management problems and poor impulse control under pressure.
Jack Ryan's records were released by a judge pursuant to a request from the Chicago Tribune. If you're into taking your wife to sex clubs for group hanky panky you probably shouldn't run for public office since it will leak out. None of these had anything to do with the Obama campaign nit wit.

Good morning and happy national cheeseburger day Homer.

So it appears that about half of Florida's 3.5 million uninsured will be able to get a silver plan through the Florida exchange for about $100 per month according to figures submitted by Florida Blue and Cigna.

Those who just say fk it will pay a $95 penalty in year one and increasingly more each year.

Yep Fair alright.

Corporations - get a 35% tax break

Capital gains - 83% of all capital gains taxes are currently paid by those making over @200K a year. So a 23.8% tax cut for the top bracket.

If a person makes 10 million dollars a year & spends only two million, he gets a 80% tax break

Who makes up for this loss of revenues?

You do.

So if you want to keep handing money to corporations & rich people & cover the cost, yes support Fairtax.

When you look to buy your next $25K car, gladly pay nearly $6,000 in federal sales tax.
