isn't that what the financial markets, investment bankers and money market managers did. They took other people's money, invested in questionable markets (mortgage backed securities) and reaped the benefits. When the securities failed, they had no stake in it. They kept the profits bur socialized the losses
Yep
The dangers of funny money.
If there was real money this stuff wouldn't happen as much.

Arctic: NORTH POLAR REGION

Antarctic: SOUTH POLAR REGION

Ergo, what happens in the south pole has little direct effect on the Northern Hemisphere.

Arctic ice is at an all time low.

Okay, we all know you are scientifically illiterate, but now it seems you are geographically challenged too.

The increase in the purchasing and use of drones is expanding the military.
Not to mention dangerous in using them to patrol the us.
What do you mean by "drones expand" the military? It certainly does not expand the number of military personnel. In fact, only 82 percent of the available training positions for remotely piloted aircraft are filled. However, if you merely mean it expands the military's reach, we should all be cheering the fact that unmanned, round-the-clock drones are patrolling Afghanistan, Yemen and North Africa as opposed to U.S. forces. That is a good thing. The safety of our troops comes first.

scientists have been observing this for the past few years, I read about it a couple of years ago. The effect on climate in the U.S. is that weather storms will be more severe. The cold air comes down into the middle of the U.S. meeting warm moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico
Now, one would ask why are these jet streams, which used to circle the polar regions, coming south.
LOSS OF ARCTIC ICE.
As the polar ice cap shrinks, the up flow of cold air that controlled the circular polar jet streams don't have those barriers. As such, the cold polar jet streams dip into the continental U.S.
Global Warming/Climate change also explain why winters in NE U.S. and NW Europe will be more severe. The Gulf Stream which moderates winters in those areas becomes weaker, as the polar waters warm up. The temperature difference between the polar and equatorial waters is what drives the Gulf Stream. As this difference gets smaller, the engine that drives the Gulf weakens.
I find it amusing that people who don't understand science, and global warming point to severe winter weather as proof global warming is a hoax, whereas the truth is global warming actually predicts those effects
Thats false there is no loss of arctic ice.

you were the one that first compared the four. I was just pointing out that the coaches had some time prior to being let go, something that you would not afford the Sec. Sebelius.

I also pointed out that using your logic, firing at the first misstep, Bush should have been fired at 09:15 EDT 9/11/2001 for a CATASTROPHIC FAILURE TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES AND ITS CITIZENS

The drones cost money and they shouldn't be patrolling the us, do you agree?

Dreams deferred
Bisset hopes to return to school “when my finances are more stable,” but Harmony Glenn is fairly sure she’ll never go back.
“I never assumed [retail] would be my career,” she said.“I always assumed it was what I was doing until I finished my degree.” Becoming a manager at the skin care store would help her pay off the family debt, while going back for a political science degree promises her nothing.
Both Glenns do worry about what their parents think; their families stressed the importance of college early on. Harmony “walked into kindergarten knowing that what came after high school was college.” Christopher’s father, just 18 when he was born, tried to steer Christopher away from his own profession as a paramedic because of the low pay. His father worked two jobs so Christopher’s mother could go to school, and she’s now a city comptroller.
“My mom is kind of the poster child for ‘a degree will get you farther,’” Christopher said.“But at this point, it doesn’t always work like that.”

once a college graduate works at a non-college job for several years, their chances of getting back on the career track are slim to none..

why should we care?
But I do understand her making it public. Given the hatred, bias, misunderstanding our society has towards homosexuals, I think its important that people like her and that Pro NBA'er come out and announce their homosexuality. Just to show the bigots in our society that homosexuals are normal everyday Americans.
I can still remember my grandmother referring to blacks as darkies
and my father using the infamous "N" word....however as time went on his attitude changed and became more encompassing of all Americans. I think that when he found out his nephew was gay, that wall started to crumble.
We're all in this together...its time we started thinking of Planet Earth as a lifeboat floating through space....either we all learn to work together or we all perish
and how does a news person maintain the illusion of objectivity on this divisive issue after publicly announcing their loyalty???...

""Boehner Admits 100% Responsibility for Shutdown ""
""The minute anyone says the government shutdown is the fault of the Democrats in Congress and President Obama, please show them this video where Speaker of the House, John Boehner takes absolute 100% responsibility for what is now the worst attack on America's government in the history of our Nation.
On the October 6th edition of This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Boehner said:(referring to the shutdown) "The threat of Obamacare was so important, it was time for us to take a stand. And we took a stand."
This "stand" that the Republicans have taken is going to have devastating consequences on the economy, children with cancer will not receive state of the art treatment options, injured soldiers will not be receiving treatment or benefits, the FDA has begun to stop food inspection, the CDC has stopped giving out life-saving flu vaccines. People are going to die. People are going to lose fortunes.
The only good thing that will come out of this disaster is that plenty of Republican members of Congress will be looking for new jobs come 2014.""

Some of these asshats even deny the shutdown!!
Yes, the same type of people who believe when a nuclear reactor shuts down so does the entire plant.
