Right whiners are mad at Apple because they are spending money to make new facilities nearly 100% powered by renewables.

If I were in Utah, another cheat in the Air Force's missile defense system, I would not hesitate to aim the thing towards oklahoma and push the button. Not for one second. However, it is unlikely I could ever live in utah where the air smells like scented candles and the people are largely filthy mormons.

Ummm.. no.. nope... she's a LOT better than you... most of us are. You're not the garden variety conservative like carol who knows full well she's an asshole and just sets out every day to prove it, you're more of the type whose nicitating membrane constantly opening and closing distracts you from observing you are a reptile not a mammal. You actually believe without a doubt that you're right about how the world works, and, frankly, it's terrifying. I think you need to be killed and I'm volunteering for the repulsive task.
That boi has an inferiority complex. He afraid all the liberals are "richer and smarter" than him. Just so happens it's true. Flip ya for it?

Typical Republican, fired up the feeble minded CPAC by declaring the major problem in this country would be if we dropped delivering mail on Saturday. But in true Republican manner never said how he would fund it.

No azzhole he didn't lie about closing Gitmo. It was Republicans and some blue dog Democrats that blocked funding for the closing and prevented the transfer of the prisoners to federal facilities in the United States.
Politifact not withstanding he didn't lie about the health insurance either. Under the law all policies written prior to its enactment were grandfathered, even the really crappy, "hope you don't get sick" ones it was the insurance companies that decided to make changes after the fact which negated their grandfathered status. Why? Because even with the low premiums the high deductibles in the plans would mean that the insurers would end up paying very little and in many cases nothing. However with the mandate that the insurers issue a rebate if they didn't spend 80% on actual health care that advantage was moot.
You're an idiot Ed!

A couple of things'
- Nobama did not say he would try to close Gitmo, he said he would, no ands, ifs or buts. He was either ignorant procedure or he was a lair. Period.
- My daughter and her families health insurance was cancelled. They were offered a different policy, at a higher cost, higher deductables. They were just one of the 5 million plus families that had their health insurance cancelled. You are a liar.

We hear a lot about this fictional liberal land under President Obama, where job creation was killed by Obamacare and liberal ideas have destroyed the country. Reality, of course, is quite different. In fact, reality is almost the exact opposite. For Bush’s entire 8 years, job growth was just 1.1 million. Yet under Obama, the private sector has had 48 straight months of job growth, with businesses adding 8.7 million jobs.

Today’s job numbers are a good example of the disconnect.“Nonfarm payroll employment rose by 175,000 in February, and the unemployment rate, at 6.7 percent, changed little,” per Erica L. Groshen, the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Jason Furman, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, put these numbers in perspective in a statement in which he explained that February was the 48th straight month of private sector job growth,“February 2014 was the 48th straight month of private-sector job growth, with businesses adding 8.7 million jobs over that time.”

This matters because we hear a lot from Republicans about how Obama is killing jobs. However, Rick Newman pointed out in January of 2013 for US News that in Bush’s first term, he created zero job growth, even before the Bush recession.“When Bush began his first term in January 2001, total nonfarm employment was 132.47 million. When his second term began four years later, it was 132.45 million, or effectively zero job growth.”

So, even though we know math is not a GOP forte, I am hoping we can all agree that zero is smaller than any number above zero. Newman continued the math,“From February 2001 to February 2005, the economy created 164,000 jobs, for a 0.1 percent gain during Bush’s first term. From February 2009 through December 2012, the economy created nearly 1.2 million jobs, a 0.9 percent improvement.”

Republicans built that zero to .1 percent gain job growth. In Bush’s entire 8 year term, total job growth was just 1.1 million. Obama created more jobs in his first term than Bush did in his entire 2 terms. Although we have to hand public sector job growth to Bush. Yes, the Big Government Republicans don’t like to talk about reality much. They killed public sector jobs under Obama, in an attempt to make his job numbers look bad and cripple government, but ironically, this is only making Obama the Private Sector Job Growth President.

While things are far from great, Republicans really shouldn’t be pointing fingers and tittering about job numbers that are much better than their party created.

Flacktard hts the stupid stride early today.
Prior to the ACA, it was very expensive for an individual to buy health insurance. It was very expensive for a sole proprietor, or a small corporation to buy health insurance.
If you are working for a company that provides good health insurance, one road block to leaving & starting your own company is the cost of health insurance. The ACA provides a resource for health insurance at a much lower cost.
Sometimes, spouses worked jobs just for the health insurance.
With the ACA, taking the plunge to start your own company or pursue a different career becomes more feasible.
People will CHOOSE to work less. People will be able to pursue the career thy want.
To right whiners this is a bad thing.
"real dumb"
You are a liar.
My daughter and her husband, both self employed had their health insurance policy. They were offered an alternative policy, higher deductibles and a higher cost. Prior to nobamakare they had no problems.

guessing at being right is why FOX BS can't gain any traction.
have you ever read/heard a FOX story about Benghazi? there are more unnamed sources than you would find in a WND birther/Clinton killed Vince Foster story.
I don't follow Fox stories like you ride on every word from the mouth of the Magic Negro and Mediamatters..

Try something else to get traction with:-)
