And yes, it is the best decision I ever made. More expensive to buy and install, but so worth it. No vents, no huge monstrosity gobbling energy and making noise, and breaking down. This has no parts to break down. Check it out -- you might be able to switch over now, and, if not, maybe soon. Even if your energy is relatively cheap, this has so many benefits.
Well, honey, it's my birthday, and I'm going off to have a few. Tomorrow I go to the King Winery in Eugene. It's been a long day, and kicking back tonight and tomorrow sounds just right. You have yourself a wonderful evening with your lady -- that lucky girl! ;)
Happy Birthday!!! Have a wonderful day tomorrow.

A former Arizona sheriff who has taken the side of cattle ranchers in Nevada said this week that he would have allowed his own wife and daughters to be shot as human shields because it would look bad for the federal government on television.
In a statement to Fox News on Monday that was first flagged by Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, former Sheriff Richard Mack talked about his strategy to put women on the front lines if a gunfight broke out between “rogue federal agents” and rancher Cliven Bundy, who reportedly owes the taxpayers more than $1 million for allowing his cattle to graze on government land.
“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” he recalled.“If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
Speaking to radio host Ben Swann later on Monday, Mack explained his plan.
“It was a tactical plot that I was trying to get them to use,” Mack said.“If they’re going to start killing people, I’m sorry, but to show the world how ruthless these people are, women needed to be the first ones shot.”
“I’m sorry, that sounds horrible,” he continued.“I would have put my own wife or daughters there, and I would have been screaming bloody murder to watch them die. I would gone next, I would have been the next one to be killed. I’m not afraid to die here. I’m willing to die here.”
“But the best ploy would be to have had women at the front. Because, one, I don’t think they would have shot them. And, two, if they had, it would have been the worst thing that we could have shown to the rest of the world, that these ruthless cowards hired by the federal government will do anything.”
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/04/15/former-...
so the non-ruthless cowards sent out the women.
not looking good for right wing nutjob masculinity at the moment.
Yes, he said he would have. Why didn't he? If I were his wife; I'd serve him with divorce papers today and take every fkn nickel this loser may have.

PHOENIX (Reuters)– Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on Tuesday signed into a law a bill allowing state health authorities to conduct surprise inspections of abortion clinics without first obtaining a warrant, handing another victory to abortion foes.

The Republican-backed bill, which gained final legislative approval from the state Senate last week, removes a provision from state law requiring a judge to sign off on any spot inspections conducted at the nine clinics in Arizona licensed to perform abortions.

No other medical facilities in the state require such a warrant for unannounced inspections

The Dirty Secret Behind Why Republicans Refuse to Give Lois Lerner Immunity

Sometimes a thing is so obvious it burns. But no one sees it because it’s been pre-framed in such a way that everyone is busy examining the defense and missing the offense. So it is with the fake IRS “scandal”, that I warned from the beginning appeared to be an attempt to work the refs for Karl Rove’s Crossroads and other conservative dark money groups, as we now know is true. Why did I make that claim? Logic.

It’s a simple exercise of what was going on at the time that the unsubstantiated and inaccurate claims were made. The IRS was investigating Crossroads. Who would it benefit if the narrative was established that the Obama administration was targeting conservatives? Dark money conservative groups. Whose playbook is this? Karl Rove. Accuse first, loudly, of what you are doing in order to exhaust the public of the subject, so that when the facts finally come out no one is paying attention. The inaccurate headlines “inform” the public:“Obama IRS scandal”.

I’ve also been saying that I suspect Lois Lerner was set up by the GOP to make these accusations in the first place. Everyone is focused on the ball the Republicans threw at the Obama administration, so they’re saying, gee it looks like Lois Lerner wasn’t working on the orders of anyone high up in the Obama administration. But that’s totally missing the forest for the trees.

Darrell Issa misled the public. There is no evidence that anyone in the Obama administration gave an order to the IRS and Lois Lerner, because conservatives were not being targeted. So now that we have cleared that up, and it’s been cleared up for months, that leaves us with Lois Lerner and the Republicans accusing her of all kinds of things because she won’t testify.

Issa went on Fox News and said Lerner would be testifying, when he knew she wouldn’t be. He did this in a way that suggested that Obama was close to being “caught”, and then he played surprised when she refused to testify, just like her attorney told everyone she would do. This move was that perfect Fox News move of suggesting guilt and conspiracy without saying it.

Republicans pretended to be outraged that she wouldn’t testify, suggesting with their puffed up pointed fingers that if only she would testify, they would have a case against Obama and the IRS.

But Republicans could fix all of that by giving Lois Lerner immunity.

Is there anyone remotely sane and awake in this country who believes that if Darrell Issa and/or any Republican had a chance at a real smoking Obama gun, they would turn it down?

Darrell Issa says he wants the truth. Republicans claim they wasted all of these resources and $14 million and counting in taxpayer money for the “truth”, and yet when the “truth” is in arm’s reach, they run away.

So a logical person is left to ask, why won’t they give her immunity?

I haven't been following the thread very closely so I may be off in left field but just wanted to point out that the reason the Chinese-backed solar project in Nevada died was because California opted out of buying electricity from the solar farm because we can meet our obligations with in-state power. Even Nevada's largest utility, NV Energy, refused to sign on as it had already met its renewable energy goal. With no buyers, the Chinese deal collapsed. Period.

1. On September 11th, 1974, Eastern Airlines Flight 212 crashed three and a half miles from the runway in South Carolina, killing Stephen Colbert’s father and two of his eleven siblings. The pilots had been engaged in off-topic discussion (about the “A-rabs” taking over our country). The impertinent conversation the pilots were engaged in before the crash actually led to a new FAA rule, the Sterile Cockpit Rule, which prohibits pilots from engaging in non-essential activities during critical phases of flight.

2. The death of his father and two brothers led Stephen Colbert to a kind of social isolation, where he discovered Dungeons and Dragons and Lord of the Rings, of which he has an encyclopedic knowledge. In fact, he knows his Tolkien so well that, on a visit to the set of The Hobbit, he threw down in a trivia contest with the movie’s Tolkien expert, and won!

3. Colbert changed the pronunciation of his last name (from a hard T to a silent T) after a conversation with an astronaut on a flight to Northwestern, a college he transferred to after attending an all-male college for two years.

More from Pajiba: David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” trailer is so dark…

4. Colbert did not immediately have aspirations to be a comedic actor. He grew a beard in college, and intended on being a serious actor. His friend and collaborator Amy Sedaris called him “insufferable” during this period. It was Sedaris who helped to convince him to join Second City, although it would still be a couple more years before he gave up aspirations of being a serious actor.

4. Stephen Colbert is completely deaf in one ear. In fact, because of an operation he had as a child, Colbert can fold his ear inside out and pop it out when he squints.

15. Not only did Stephen Colbert have a cameo in The Hobbit: Desolation of the Smaug, but so did his entire family, including his lovely wife Evelyn McGee.

16. While doing genealogy research, Stephen Colbert discovered that it was the ancestors of his wife who were responsible for chasing the ancestors of Colbert off their land in Ireland. Colbert actually grew up two blocks away from his wife, but didn’t meet her until they were in their 20s, though they apparently went to the same summer camp. His wife, by the by, doesn’t really care for Stephen Colbert’s character.

No. I am talking about cattle ranchers in Nevada. They are wealthy. And, so are big cattle ranchers here in California. I know several and they are multi-millionaires. It's a very lucrative profession, made even better if one steals from the government like Bundy. Do you seriously believe that Bundy would have wasted time and money fighting this in court for the past 20 yers if he didn't have money to burn? Lawyers are not cheap.

Obamacare Premiums To Rise At Record Pace

It's certain that premiums for Obamacare plans are going up - and they're rising at a record pace.

A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that ObamaCare is sending premiums rising at the fastest clip in decades.

"For the last, about, five years they've been doing this survey, so this was the largest percentage increase in any quarter since they've been doing (it)," said Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute.

"[A] 12 percent, 11 percent increase on average across all states -- that puts it at the upper end of any increase we've seen for decades."

That is the national average in a survey done by Morgan Stanley. But in some states, it found rates are soaring.

*Delaware had 100 percent increase.

*Florida had a 37 percent increase.

*Pennsylvania 28 percent increase.

*California had a 53 percent increase in their premiums.

There have been so many promises made and broken regarding Obamacare that it's hard to keep track.

[Obama lied] to the American people when he claimed that they will save $2,500 a year on insurance under Obamacare. Instead, costly plans are going to become even more expensive, squeezing families dry. Now Democrats are saying only that it was "unrealistic" to expect no pain in switching from the system we had - where the overwhelming majority of people were satisfied with their insurance - to what we have now. They will gloss over the lie about savings and accuse the American people of being naive.

Good luck with that, guys.

More reichwing propaganda.

"Among the tax hikes Mr. Obama wanted were REINSTATEMENTS of superfund excise taxes and superfund environmental income taxes in 2010 (which have been reinstated every year since 1980 when the fund was established); something called a financial crisis responsibility fee in 2011 ( a proposed tax upon certain financial firms, being imposed until that financial firm had paid off all money provided to it under the Troubled Assets Relief Program); the designation of growth zones and accompanying tax and fee structures in 2012 (growth zones have been around since the 1970's); and the repeal or elimination of several tax benefits for various oil, gas and energy drilling endeavors in 2014." Really, this is what conservatives call raising taxes? Seems to me they are running scared.

Steals?

Like the thieves from renewable energy corporations like Solyndra that referred to the Obama administration as the Bank of Washington, D.C.?

Lucrative?

Ever wonder why someone would spend hundreds of millions to try and win an election for a job that pays a few hundred grand with benefits and a pension? It sure as shit isn't to help the indigent.
