Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

"Because a heat pump creates heat by pulling warmth from the outside air or ground rather than burning fuel to generate heat, it usually costs less to operate than gas, oil or electric furnaces."
Your article is talking about heat pumps that use outside air, not ground loops.

No Carol, the idea that a gun is the best defense is a myth and a particularly dangerous one.
Having a gun in your home significantly increases your risk of death — and that of your spouse and children.
And it doesn’t matter how the guns are stored or what type or how many guns you own.
If you have a gun, everybody in your home is more likely than your non-gun-owning neighbors and their families to die in a gun-related accident, suicide or homicide.
Furthermore, there is no credible evidence that having a gun in your house reduces your risk of being a victim of a crime. Nor does it reduce your risk of being injured during a home break-in.
The health risks of owning a gun are so established and scientifically non-controvertible that the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement in 2000 recommending that pediatricians urge parents to remove all guns from their homes.
Study after study has been conducted on the health risks associated with guns in the home. One of the latest was a meta-review published in 2011 by David Hemenway, director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center. He examined all the scientific literature to date on the health risks and benefits of gun ownership.
Having a gun in the home is a risk factor for serious accidental injury and death. As Hemenway points out, death certificate data indicate that 680 Americans were killed accidentally with guns each year between 2003 and 2007. Half those victims were under the age of 25.
A large percentage of homicides — and especially homicides in the home — occur during altercations over matters such as love, money, and domestic problems, involving acquaintances, neighbors, lovers, and family members; often the assailant or victim has been drinking.
More people usually end up dead who didn't have a gun. Many others survive because they did. Many more - especially women - may survive but wish they'd had a gun.

It's a double-edged sword in some cases, granted, but domestic violence perpetrators don't need a gun to achieve their intent.

Apparently, everyone on the forum who says your reading comprehension is sub-normal is actually correct! Ask your special ed teacher for a refresher course. And as far as your never mentioning Bush's race... you didn't have to in your "gazillion" posts; obviously your guilt has finally surfaced over that. Now keep going for a "gazillion" more so that your racist worship of the inept Obama will continue to contribute to your lack of reading comprehension. lol

Unbowed by Republican criticism, the White House on Saturday began a new push defending President Barack Obama's emphasis on executive actions that don't require congressional approval.

A video sent by the administration to its email list makes the case that actions Obama has taken since his Jan. 28 State of the Union address have had positive effects on the public. The executive actions highlighted in the video include the creation of a new retirement account, called MyRA, a $2 billion down payment from the Federal Communications Commission to connect schools and students to high-speed broadband, and directives for federal agencies to help the long-term unemployed.

In all, the president has unveiled six executive actions since announcing in his State of the Union address that he would use his authority more forcefully without new legislation in "a year of action."

But his more aggressive approach hasn’t occurred in a political vacuum. Rather, it’s been met with fierce and hyperbolic Republican opposition, with some accusing him of acting “increasingly lawless”(Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin) or imperial (Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas), and others saying it will discourage them from passing unrelated legislation like immigration reform (Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida).

But if those warnings were designed to discourage the president, they haven’t worked -- at least so far. Saturday’s video, provided exclusively to The Huffington Post in advance of its release, affirms Obama's strategy. It also teases another executive action to be announced on Feb. 12.

The number of recipients of Saturday’s email is in the millions, an administration official said.

Your blanket "grumpy old white men" narrative includes a bunch of people. No names required. I've yet to see a generalizing "angry black assassins" yet, but it's time is coming.

Think about it, his race is about the only thing Obama doesn't lie about. It's the only thing associated with him that isn't a lie.. Unless telling everyone in school he was an 'Indonesian Prince'.......or Kenyan royalty, counts for anything.

For one thing nitwit, Obama said he was raising the minimum wage for federal contract workers not for everyone. But then again your reading comprehension skills are underwhelming at best.
The new estimates also say that the health care law will, in the short run, benefit the economy by boosting demand for goods and services because the lower-income people it helps will have more purchasing power. The report noted that the 2014 premiums that people pay for exchange coverage are coming in about 15 per cent lower than projected, and the health care law, on balance, still is expected to reduce the federal deficit.
What erosions of jobs Carol? We've shown job gains since Obama took office liar. As for the sluggish economy it certainly is intentional, on the part of the GOP who hoped to hobble it and use it to win in 2012. They failed but keep on trying the same failed policies.
Made clear in ensuing posts the raise in minimum wage applied to federal contract workers.

We were promised a lot of things with Obamacare. The number of sign ups to pay the higher premiums has yet to be seen.

Rand Paul: Texas Could Go Blue If GOP Doesn't Change

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Saturday warned Republican lawmakers that they need to adapt to changing public opinion.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/rand-pa...

though it seems he's in campaign mode. FOX style.

....The senator, considered a potential front-runner in the 2016 presidential race, took the opportunity to criticize his possible competition, Hillary Clinton.

When talking about Benghazi, Paul said that the attack "should limit Hillary Clinton from ever holding high office, when she was asked for reinforcements, she turned down reinforcements, and we should never, ever have a commander-in-chief who won't send reinforcements.".....

i wonder if he thinks that a FOX myth is really going to change anything? let's ask Mitt shall we? or maybe not.

Go to page 2 of 2, imbecile.
Here, let me spoon feed it for you:
"Some geothermal systems, though, which are less expensive and less efficient, also need a back-up system that can kick in when it drops below 25 degrees F. to augment a system that may not be able to handle really frigid temperatures."
Most people get a system like this because it's cost prohibitive to get the Cadillac system and the payback period is too long, defeating the purpose.
Here's the link to the second page since you were too frikkin stoooopid to go to it!

God are you dumber than sh*t!
speaking of duisn't dumb, so what a system needs a spare compressor....

what about a oil furnance system...if the power goes out, your furnance ain't gonna work
when does power typically go out, in real friggin cold weather....

or if your furnance goes on the blink......

same with gas heat system, if your power goes out, it ain't gonna work

the only system that won't quit when power goes out are wood/coal systems

Geothermal systems reduce our dependence on coal/oil/gas, they reduce costs. So they have their drawbacks, everything does. Does that mean we don't use them and work on improving it.

with that attitude, we'd still be riding horseback

Ken Ham: The Making of An American Religious Huckster

Creationist Ken Ham is a modestly-educated Australian schoolteacher. But America's long tradition of anti-intellectualism helped him become a star religious entrepreneur.

Ken Ham’s widely watched debate with Bill Nye has brought America’s most significant fundamentalist onto the radar screen of millions of Americans for the first time. Many are shocked to discover that such views still exist and, as polls remind us, are held by more than a hundred million Americans.

The Ken Ham phenomenon is uniquely American. Creationism exists largely as an American export in other countries, and I am bombarded with inquiries when I speak on this topic in Europe. European scholars find American creationism incomprehensible. How in the world can an Australian schoolteacher with a modest education create an organization like Answers in Genesis, with a $20 million annual budget? And raise $27 million to build a creation museum? And become one of the most influential educators in the country?
