Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was still speaking Wednesday morning as his marathon effort to block funding for the health care law passed its 15th hour.
Cruz took the floor at 2:41 p.m. ET on Tuesday, vowing to speak until he is "no longer able to stand." Over the course of his more than 15 hours on the floor, Cruz likened his doubters to Nazi appeasers and read the beloved Dr. Seuss classic "Green Eggs and Ham."
But under Senate rules, Cruz's lengthy speech is not actually a filibuster. In fact, the junior senator from Texas even negotiated the terms of his speech ahead of time with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

A man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female who was putting gas in her car and left his card. She said no, but accepted his card out of kindness and got in the car. The man then got into a car driven by another gentleman. As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of the station at the same time. Almost immediately, she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her breath. She tried to open the window and realized that the odor was on her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the gentleman at the gas station.

She then noticed the men were immediately behind her and she felt she needed to do something at that moment. She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for help. The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes after she could finally catch her breath.

Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously injured her.

This drug is called 'BURUNDANGA' and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them like REPEATED GANG RAPE. This drug is four times more dangerous than the date rape drug and is transferable on simple cards.

So take heed and make sure you don't accept cards at any given time alone or from someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services .

PLEASE SEND THIS ALERT TO EVERY FEMALE YOU KNOW.

WHERE HAVE ALL THE SUNSPOTS GONE? If this is our Sun at its current "solar maximum",(which is supposed to be its most ACTIVE period), what's going to happen to our climate now?

The Obama administration and the environmentalist are still warning that Global Warming is a looming catastrophy that if not addressed in the most draconian manner -- with severe carbon reductions, cap & trade policies with a wholesale switch to "Green Energy" -- we are all doomed! Our Sun seems not to have gotten the memo...

'This is the height of the 11-year solar cycle, the so-called solar maximum. The face of the Sun should be pockmarked with sunspots, and cataclysmic explosions of X-rays and particles should be whizzing off every which way.

Instead, the Sun has been tranquil, almost spotless.

As W. Dean Pesnell, the project scientist for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, dryly noted,“We’re not having much of a solar maximum.”'

Our understanding of the Sun and how it actually functions is in its infancy, but we do have records of sunspot activity going back to Galileo. In the late 17th century, between 1645 and 1715 there were very few sunspots observed. This period is called the "Maunder Minimum" and coincides with another anomoly, this one ominous and Earthbound,'the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes.' Millions died from hunger during this time of colder climate.

Unlike those who say that Climate Science is "settled" and the Earth is destined to get warmer... some are now wondering if a period of cooling is upon us. Others wonder just how cool it could get. As far as growing food for the world is concerned, warmer is better.

“Nothing makes food taste worse, nothing makes it harder to get an erection, nothing spoils Breaking Bad, nothing sews you into a human centipede like Obamacare,” Stewart exclaimed.“Obamacare will murder your hope.”
The host also took Cruz to task for arguing that Obama was trying to get the country “addicted to the subsidies” associated with the law and likening it to candy.
“You know how America is with entitlements — it’s like crack to us,” Stewart argued.“You give us one small taste of Social Security, and suddenly we’re all sucking the glass d*ck of not having our old people freeze to death and live off of cat food.”

"Nazi appeasers"?

Reminds us of President Bush's 2008 address to the Knesset warning them of what they should expect with Obama's dealings with Iran:

"Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is – the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

A staff member for the speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives reportedly left a loaded gun in a men's bathroom in the state capitol building last week.

A Kahr CM9 9 mm gun belonging to Dave Evans, House Speaker Tim Jones's (R-Eureka) legislative assistant, was found on top of a toilet paper dispenser in a bathroom stall last Friday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday. A police report obtained by the Post-Dispatch noted that the gun had one hollow point bullet in its chamber and six bullets in its magazine. The gun was found in a stall by another state legislative staffer and was secured by capitol police.

We elect our leaders to serve us, the people. Obama serves his self-imposed personal vision and blames republicans if they don't share his same vision.
Don't recall too many presidents like this one before. Most presidents reach across the aisle and work with representatives of the people who might not have voted for them.
As usual Carol your lies don't even stand up to even cursory examination. Te President met with Republicans at their annual retreat in Baltimore in 2009. He's had several meetings with both Senate and House Republicans. Just this spring he hosted a dinner for a dozen Republican senators at the Jefferson Hotel (and paid the tab out of his own pocket) and on the following day had lunch with Rep. Paul Ryan. But just how do you reach across to a group whose philosophy is to oppose, obstruct and block everything the President proposes even if it was their idea in the first place.
Working across the aisle hasn't worked out to well for Republicans. As senators Richard Lugar and Barack Obama sponsored legislation, the "Lugar-Obama proliferation and threat reduction initiative," which President Bush signed into law on January 11, 2007. Lugar's willingness to engage in bipartisan cooperation earned him a challenge from Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock who won the primary but lost the general election adding another Democratic senator. Lindsay Graham is another Republican who has been working with a bipartisan group on senators on immigration reform and as a result is being challenged by Tea Party candidates. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, another GOP senator who has shown a willingness to compromise with Democrats is being challenged on those grounds by Lynn Cheney.
But go ahead Carol just keep living in your delusional little world.

A glitch hidden in one of Obamacare’s 10,000 pages of rules could increase some families’ health insurance costs by thousands of dollars and leave children uncovered.

To qualify as “affordable” under the federal health care law, employer-provided health insurance must cost no more than 9.5 percent of the employee’s salary. Otherwise, the individual is eligible to receive subsidies for the purchase of health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges instead.

But this measure applies only to individual employees, not families. The result will be a drastic cost increase in cases where affordable employer-provided insurance doesn’t cover the whole family.

Obama lied. My health plan died.

Remember? Our president looked America straight in the eye and promised: "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also lied when she pledged: "Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them."

This isn't just partisan business. It's personal. Our cancellation letter states that Anthem is "not going to be selling new individual PPO plans." When we asked whether we could keep our children's doctors, an agent for Anthem told my husband and me she didn't know. The insurer has no details available yet on what exactly they'll be offering. We either will be herded into the Obamacare federal health insurance exchange regime (launching October 1), a severely limited HMO plan, or presented with costlier alternatives from another insurer. If they even exist.

My family is not alone. Across the country, insurers are sending out Obamacare-induced health plan death notices to untold tens of thousands of other customers in the individual market. Twitter users are posting their Obamacare cancellation notices and accompanying rate increases.

Flack is arguing that since there are no sunspots that it is OK to pollute our planet to the point of changing our climate for the worse.

Flack recommends we do NOTHING until the climate is actually changed to the point that it greatly affects our food supply & our shorelines, Unfortunately, at that point any action would take decades for the effects to be felt.

A staff member for the US Senate reportedly found a fully loaded 1967 Oldsmobile left in the water off a bridge near Chappaquiddick Island in 1969.

The fully loaded 1967 Oldsmobile belonged to Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and when it was pulled from the water while he was not in it, his dead secretary was. A police report about the 1-car mishap said it was Teddy Kennedy's fault, of course, no one disputes that. And his actions that followed – not summoning emergency personnel who might have saved her life, the cover-up of the facts, not even reporting the accident until the following morning – likely would have landed a man without political connections in prison and prove that two standards of behavior exist: One for liberal Democrats and another for conservative Republicans. Along with sweeping changes in immigration law, soaring oratory, and strengthening the nation's social safety net, this reservoir of class resentment is also part of Kennedy's legacy. Liberals in the media pretend not to see this. Or rather, they blame those who feel aggrieved.
