As usual, my problem is the same as the problem the military has: we both want everybody to love us. Ahhh, well.. what are you wearing, 16? I'm not asking this to embarrass or denigrate you... I'm asking because it's who I am... I actually CARE what you're wearing over your body. This distance between us is sooooo vast... and yet... I can call you close with just a thought... an image I create myself - with your help (yes, I heard you have one of me too) I suspect this is the future of mankind... We just... cast about for someone we want... wish for... If you never sleep with me, neither of us will be disappointed - beyond a physical need... It's a conundrum... I want you.. you want what you have... right? I CAN'T stop thinking about peeling your stretchpants off... do you forgive me? Do you understand me?...

Ok Carol, So you had nothing to say?

What did the Republicans do from 1993 through 2006 to fix healthcare? Evidently you think they did something. What was it??

Please list the Republicans in Congress that were thrown out of committee meetings. Refused a seat at the table?

Your party did nothing except add an unfunded drug benefit to Medicare..

Our servicemen go where they are told. No war in Iraq. No U.S. soldiers killed. Pretty simple fact if you ask me. I appreciate our military enough to see that they are kept out of harms way. Warmongers don't care.
The war in Afghanistan continued long after the Iraq War ended. Are you saying Obama is a warmonger?

Solar Energy Storage About To Take Off In Germany and California
Visitors to last week’s Intersolar North America conference in San Francisco could not help but notice the presence of a benign invader: energy storage vendors. Half the second-floor exhibition space at the Moscone West convention hall had been rented by energy storage companies.
According to Markus Elsaesser, CEO of Intersolar, the number of companies exhibiting energy storage technologies at Intersolar has increased from about a dozen just three years ago to more than 200 this year.

storage has always been the weak point in soar power systems..

we used to have golf cart batteries..now they are a tad bit better, but not too much...

solar power is by far the best answer to individual home electrical power supply. it is definitely the way most homes will generate most of their electricity in the future..

Relatively few people know that the Affordable Care Act hamstrings the government's ability to collect the penalties.

When it passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, Congress banned the IRS from using any of its usual techniques to force people to pay the penalty for failing to obtain health insurance.

Isn't anyone on the left even asking what the heck this was all about?

The Internal Revenue Service probably will bark at you if you fail to obtain health insurance next year, but the agency won't have much bite. On this issue, Congress pulled the watchdog's teeth.
"They might send you a sternly worded letter," said Andy Grewal, a University of Iowa law professor who specializes in tax issues.
And if you toss the IRS' hectoring note into the recycling bin, you should brace yourself for, um, another sternly worded letter.

This was all just a big joke to make sure we got what Obama thought we deserved - a diminished economy and military.
and after that they start garnishing your wages and actually taking it out of your bank account...

the ACA did not prevent then from using these legal methods to get you to pay your due..

you should research more...

No one knew anything about this missing jet for almost a week and now suddenly they know it flew at 45,000 feet long enough to deprive the passengers of oxygen and then flew at 5000 feet below the radar.

How in the heck do they know this?

Come now... In the past century alone there have been four wars between the Israelis and the Jews, a war between Iraq and Iran, and, of course, the Persian Gulf War. None of which solved anything which means...more wars will erupt in the years to come. Do you honestly want to keep dragging us into these foreign conflicts? Leave them alone.
where hasn't there been wars constantly?

your posts deny reality and the political and social interactions of the region.

a very simplistic view, based on very limited information..

again...we don't need elementary level posts on this topic...gain some knowledge, then join the discussion...

They ignored all the warning signs of exactly what an inexperienced Community Organizer could do to the country. We will all pay the price for what the LSM perpetrated on the country in the name of 'fairness'.
The liberal media is solely to blame. The corrupt liberal media. We're in very big trouble if our sites aren't turned to this very real danger very soon.

Not exactly true. The IRS can collect the penalty from those that do not voluntarily pay by offsetting any refund, current or future, due the taxpayer. For those that are not entitled to a refund, the penalty does not go away; it will be carried to future years.

C'mon, Woodtick. Education, medicine, roads, police, fire, marriage, divorce, custody, property, contracts, housing, business charters, and so on. Ensuring a state abides by the supreme law of the land is something different. The federal government is also confined by the supreme law of the land.
