Yeah__then why don't you hop in the old Accord and run over there to find out what's really going and get back to us.

If CA had FLA's sunshine laws we'd already know where the loon went to grade school and his neighbors would be on the news saying what a great guy he is.

The nationals are just now getting around to reporting on the Lopez kid in Santa Rosa who was gunned down by a nervis jervis cop because he was carrying a replica (toy) weapon in his own neighborhood at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Seems as though this is not the first time that Santa Rosa's finest chose gunfire as their first response to a non problem.

Oh__and it appears that that the DOW will close over 15,600 today.

Regulatory Commissars: Enforcing the Ethanol Mandate
Oct. 11, 2013

On the heels of federal subsidies and legislation designed to force a commodity into a market with little appetite for it, ethanol may be getting yet another assist. Senators Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) recently sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission requesting investigation of the oil industry for “anticompetitive practices aimed at blocking market access for renewable fuels.” In other words, having failed to create demand with special treatment for ethanol, they now want Big Brother to harass oil companies forced to blend it with their product.
This goes back to the 2007 congressional mandate that 36 billion gallons of ethanol must contaminate the nation's gas supply by 2022. With a growing gasoline supply, this might not have been problematic, but demand for gas hasn't grown because of the EPA's mileage demands and better technology from car manufacturers. And since gasoline with more than 10% ethanol wreaks havoc on engines not built to handle its corrosive effects, refiners have found themselves stuck between reality and the mandate. Unbothered by the former, the pro-ethanol lobby claims the oil industry is “blocking the introduction of cheaper, cleaner, and renewable alternatives.”
Meanwhile, even one Democrat has conceded the mandate's failure, calling the standard a “flop” that's caused both “environmental …[and] economic detriment to many sectors of the economy.” The White House, however, continues to vow loyalty to the ethanol lobby. But then again, that's not surprising for an administration that doesn't let facts cloud its judgment.

the ethanol scam is a bipartisan fraud supported by farm state Senators of both parties....

Like letting dumb ladies like you near impressionable children?
The liberal mentality - "just don't get us sued" - and the political correctness perpetrated by the liberal mentality in the public schools is why I got out and never looked back.

Sad thing is all of the good teachers were waiting for the same opportunity.

So tell me again why parents shouldn't be allowed the school of their choice for their own child?

Nevermind..."choice" isn't a word in the liberal vocabulary.

"Anyone who has been buying as an individual will save piles of money buying in the exchanges."
Why is that?
We know why you moved your employees to the exchanges. Moocher!
Wow, are there any right whiners that actually knows something about health insurance?

Eman doesn't know the difference in the cost of a policy from buying as an individual or buying as past of a group.

Eman likely gets his heath insurance through his employer Or the government because Eman has obviously never bought insurance as an individual.

I have not made my decision yet on my employees. I have a list of options and am exploring it.

My company would not qualify for any subsidies so there would be no "mooching".

So how is the government going to create jobs without the taxpayers paying for all those salaries?

And how is demonizing the wealthy who create jobs and pay for all those salaries justifiable?

According to the USDA, Flack is pretty damn close. Besides, you libturds ignore the word "supplemental" in SNAP, so that $800 is supposed to supplement what she's already paying for food.
"That [USDA] study found feeding four a healthy diet can run between $146 dollars a week on the low end, to $289 on the high end."
The more people you have, the cheaper (per person) it gets.
So,$146 -$289 a week is $1.75 -$345 per meal. Flack said he could do it for 90 cents a meal.

Flack planning on feeding a lot of burgoo
