Pot makes people's IQ go down...

" Renewed and intense attention to the issue has followed recent research on the Dunedin cohort, which found a positive association between, on the one hand, adolescent-onset cannabis use and dependence and, on the other hand, a decline in IQ from childhood to adulthood..."

Iranian Warships Headed Toward U.S. Maritime Borders to Send ‘A Message’
This will mark the first time warships from Iran have come close to U.S. maritime borders.
Why you ask? because O'bama and his side kick Lurch are stupid, weak morons-GW Bush would have blown them out of the water-even Bill Clinton, the rapist would have blown them.
But O'bama--Maritime line, red line --nothing.
Obama probably thinks they're bringing him a pot roast as a friendly gesture.

....Science....

Smoking dope lowers the IQ

"...For example, study members who never used cannabis experienced a slight increase in IQ, whereas those who diagnosed with cannabis dependence at one, two, or three or more study waves experienced IQ declines of −0.11,−0.1 7, and−0.38SDunits, respectively. An IQ decline of−0.38SD units corresponds to a loss of ∼6 IQ points, from 99.68 to 93.93."

Science...you can rely on!!!!

"The dire impact of drug addiction on a person's life and everyday functioning suggests that the large number of individuals addicted to cannabis experience substantial negative effects from its use"

Medicaid recipients should be required to sign a form written in plain English (or Spanish) that acknowledges that they understand the payback provisions.....
"Sometimes state Medicaid departments will require a person who applies for Medicaid to sign a form acknowledging that they may ultimately lose their home if they accept Medicaid payments. However, the state can never “take” a Medicaid recipient’s home as long as she is living in it.. But a few states have a rule that the home loses its status as an exempt asset for Medicaid purposes if the owner is living in a nursing home and it’s medically certified that she won’t be able to return to live in her family home. In that case, the state could require that the home be sold and the proceeds used to pay the nursing home until the money is gone, and only then would Medicaid begin paying.

Nothing is owed to the state to repay a Medicaid bill until after the Medicaid recipient dies, and even in the worst case, the state would only require repayment from your mother’s estate an amount equal to what the state paid out in Medicaid benefits on behalf of your mother during her lifetime."

Covered California, held up as a jewel in the nation's up-and-down health care overhaul, is setting aside nearly $200 million to fight off projected budget shortfalls as it prepares for what it says is a challenging financial future without hundreds of millions of dollars in federal aid.

Officials brimmed with confidence after the agency tallied 625,000 individual or family health care enrollments through mid-January, the most of any state. They also say its survival is not assured, in part because of the uncertainty around sign-ups that are key to the exchange's success.

The greatest vulnerabilities include the "long-term sustainability of the organization'' after federal grants that have been its sole source of support, more than $1 billion so far, dry up this year, the agency's executive director, Peter Lee, wrote in December to the California Department of Finance.

of course it does, because it expands Medicaid to people who are more likely to have assets....

plus the fact that people should understand that the government can always change the rules, without any action by Congress...

like the fools who actually believe that the government will not tax withdrawals from Roth IRAs....

Let them eat cake.....

WASHINGTON (AP)— A slab of dry-aged rib eye beef, American caviar and salad representing the first lady's garden will be on the four-course menu for the elegant state dinner being given by President Barack Obama for French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday.
Related Stories

The French president traveled to the U.S. alone on the heels of his very public break-up with Valerie Trierweiler, his longtime companion and de facto first lady. The seating arrangements weren't finalized and there was no word on who will occupy the seat that would have gone to Trierweiler, who once had been expected to attend.

Tuesday night's bash, inside a huge white tent on the South Lawn, is the first state dinner of Obama's second term.

The wine list is strictly American, with selections from California, Washington state and Virginia.

So is the entertainment. Mary J. Blige, a nine-time Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and actress born in the Bronx, N.Y., will perform for some 350 guests who will be seated at a modern-looking assortment of round, square and oblong tables inside the tent.

White House social secretary Jeremy Bernard, who on Monday helped preview the dinner for U.S. and French media, explained the choice of Blige by saying she's an internationally known singer who can help celebrate someone like the first-term French president. Blige is an Obama supporter who performed at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Ah Yes, The Drawbacks: Backup Needed
And there are the drawbacks to geothermal. Alexandra Marks, a fan of geothermal writing in the Christian Science Monitor, notes the same thing my brother-in-law says: it’s expensive, a lot more expensive than simply installing a conventional heating system. Some places offer tax breaks and other incentives for installing geothermal, but they’re not common.
And the deep, dark, dirty secret of geothermal is that, frankly, you always need a backup system.
