More bad news for Vallerie Jarrett and Obama.
Putin said in his New Year message to the Russian people he’s going to “annihilate the Islamist terrorists” this year. He was speaking globally.
Let’s review some recent US history.
Obama surrendered to the Islamist terrorists, and is now assisting their invasions and attempts to take over muslim countries. Today, right now, as we speak, the Armed Forces of the United States are training Al Qaeda terrorists from around the Arab world on a US military base in Jordan, arming them, then sending them into Syria to help the Suni Islamist invasion. No doubt the Syrians have captured a few of them by now, to be used when the time is right for their propaganda purposes.
What will happen when Syria decides to bomb that US military base in Jordan training Al Qaeda terrorists to smithereens?
Some more recent US history.
The ignorant buffoons running the White House stumbled into a trap in Syria set by Putin a goddam blind person could see. The end result was the US lost every bit of credibility in the Middle East, and has absolutely nothing to do with anything that happens there now. Putin said he’s going to annihilate the Islamists terrorists. That means, because the White House is part of the Islamist terrorist network, and they are the most ignorant government in the entire world, it’s a no-brainer those clowns will stumble into another trap a blind person can see.
Putin is looking to make a very clear statement to the world that Russia is the most significant enemy of Islamist imperialism today. The reality of that statement is, that makes the White House that is obviously part of the Islamist terrorist network the enemy in the west’s resistance against Islamist imperialism. It would be just like these ignorant clowns running the White House today to stumble into a trap that will show the US and Al Qaeda huddled together for the world to see. When that happens, Putin will show the world that Russia is serious about annihilating the Islamist threat to the world.
You people propping up Obama are the most ignorant people in the world today.
When Putin makes him move, don’t be surprised if Americans don’t support your anti-American, anti-Constitution, racist, bigoted, Marxist communist, Islamist, treasonous pathological lying fraud Obama. Americans are still fighting the war the Arab Islamists started. It’s only Obama and the Democrats that have surrendered to Al Qaeda and joined them. Americans are still on the side of the United States.
It is a sad day for Americans when we find ourselves looking to the leadership of Russia to carry our astronauts into space and to eliminate to evil of Islamic terrorism.

Putin is a world leader.

You can put a whole lot of them on any power supply, and still have lots of watts to spare. And you hand soldered them!! I like that.

In ref. to Whatever's concerns, hell, all new technologies have problems. Look at cars!! LOL

Still evolving. As will lighting choices. It's Progressive!! LOL

Medicaid increase Emergency Room visits

The study, published in the journal Science, compared thousands of low-income people in the Portland area who were randomly selected in a 2008 lottery to get Medicaid coverage with people who entered the lottery but remained uninsured. Those who gained coverage made 40 percent more visits to the emergency room than their uninsured counterparts. The pattern was so strong that it held true across most demographic groups, times of day, and types of visits, including for conditions that were treatable in primary care settings.

Good morning. Do you thugs ever take a break? Geez!
I used to be an advocate for sending all illegals packing until I was convinced that just isn't feasible (thank you, Ronald Reagan). I even used to refer to them as "criminals" but, since police don't arrest anyone for being an illegal immigrant that hardly seems appropriate. I support changing our laws to deny automatic citizenship to "anchor babies" and firmly believe that is the only action that will curb the flow of illegals across our border.
That said, most illegal immigrants are of no risk or danger to us. They are hardworking people looking for a way to feed their families. Detention centers are full of them. Those who are "Criminals" are in jail.
Your data stinks.

A country that cannot control its borders is a government failing its duty to its citizens.

Liberals pursue this failure with gusto. Conservatives fight it.

Hospital staff in Northern Virginia are turning away sick people on a frigid Thursday morning because they can't determine whether their Obamacare insurance plans are in effect.

Patients in a close-in DC suburb who think they've signed up for new insurance plans are struggling to show their December enrollments are in force, and health care administrators aren't taking their word for it.

In place of quick service and painless billing, these Virginians are now facing the threat of sticker-shock that comes with bills they can't afford.

'They had no idea if my insurance was active or not!' a coughing Maria Galvez said outside the Inova Healthplex facility in the town of Springfield.

She was leaving the building without getting a needed chest x-ray.

'The people in there told me that since I didn't have an insurance card, I would be billed for the whole cost of the x-ray,' Galvez said, her young daughter in tow.'It's not fair – you know, I signed up last week like I was supposed to.'

The x-ray's cost, she was told, would likely be more than $500.

Galvez said she enrolled in a Carefirst Blue Cross bronze plan at a cost of about $450 per month through healthcare.gov , three days before Christmas.

'No one has sent me a bill,' she said.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified in a December 11 congressional hearing that the federal government can't say how many new enrollees have written checks for their first month's premiums.

'Some may have paid, some may have not,' she conceded.

It's unlikely that a valid insurance card would have changed Galvez' fortunes, however.

Her Carefirst plan, identified on the Obamacare website as BlueChoice Plus Bronze, carries a $5,500 per-person deductible for 2014 – an amount she would have to pay out-of-pocket before her coverage would apply to medical expenses.

I would have been surprised if you weren't interested in new technologies like this.
Like you showed with interest in 3d printers and other advancements.
My new TV is LED. I have been playing with LED's in different applications. I like your work bench lightstrip idea.
You are light years ahead of many on the right, who seem fearful because the bulbs they grew up with are gooing away.
So now that you weighed in, Whatever will become a LED supporter!!
Many of us who are not on the far left favor new technology, including LED.

We also like freedom of choice, which the left seems to try and remove every chance you get.

LED bulbs are very expensive and the cost benefit is not always there. CFL seems to be about break even as the quality improves.

CFL that the liberals promoted can be hazardous. I expect that will be one of your "great" ideas that will soon be Republicans fault once your Ministry of Propaganda is ready.

Relax, dear. It's an evolving technology, and will improve with time.

Maybe something will replace LED's?? Who knows??

I have two over a kitchen island. It is incredible. I'd had incandescents in the 2 fixtures for 10 years, went to a Phillips Director LEDs, and it's like a new room!!

They are directional. That will improve with LED arrays. They are pricey. That will change.

My first flatscreen TV was analog tuner (2004), 26", and cost $700. Not HD.

I just purchased a Samsung 32" LED HD 1080p Smart TV for $300. It's amazing, like a 32" wall mounted tablet!!

Relax. Incandescents had their time, but like buggy whips, are a relic of the energy wasting past.

Besides, what's the downside of cheaper electric bills??

Scottsbluff seems to like it.

The LED Light bulbs have problems on a fundamental level. They are point-source light residing within a flat-surface design. Filament bulbs are not point-source nor are the CFL's.

LED manufacturers have been wrangling with the problem of getting a point-source light to shine unidirectional and not just above the plane.

Here's another case where the Democrat/Socialist product of national health care demonstrates how they don't give a sh*t:

"We're shut, says hospital as dying stroke victim, 89, turns up at 4.57pm on a Friday: Hour's delay taking John to another hospital in the rush hour meant clot-busting drugs were administered too late, says family"

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-25258...

The examples of what liberalism & Obamacare will bring are endless.

Just do a search on UK hospital problems

Nobody cares (compared to our system before Obamacare).

They have severe issues.

The BBC doesn't report it and neither will our Ministry of Propaganda (liberal corrupt media).

You are correct. When the Democrats screw workers, just like in the old U.S.S.R., nobody gives a sh*t. People suffer as a result.
