But that hasn't even crossed your mind. Hardworking citizens being royally screwed?
Because hardworking citizens deserve to become the victims of a welfare state? Correct?

<quoted text>gotta wonder...what is wrong with a bunch of little hardly noticeable earthquakes instead of one big one?
isn't this a long held theory that we may be able to 'lubricate' the faults to prevent major quakes? now ,i am not into injecting poisonous chemicals into our ground but perhaps we have stumbled onto some great catastrophy mitigating technique here?
"Lubricate the faults"

You really need to stick to driving trucks. Or spreading mulch. Because you're clueless about the geology involved with these injection well quakes. There are far more than are reported by drillers, and regulators are on the take in most places, esp. PA.

Your ignorance concerning the dangers posed by hydraulic fracking puts you with the likes of Nobraina. That is to say, maximum stupidity.

Did you pay your deductible to Obamacare?
Not yet. The employer mandate was delayed until...wait for it...after the elections. Remember?

Plenty of other people who did sign up are paying higher deductibles and premiums though.

Not sure how those who couldn't afford it are doing health-wise these days.

Probably free clinic waiting rooms are already filling up.

The increased demand in paying deductibles before seeing a physician or receiving treatment is a direct result of the ACA.
Insured workers with a deductible of $1,000 or more for single coverage jumped to 34% in 2012 from 12% in 2007.
High deductible plans rose to 15.5 million in 2013 from 1 million in 2005. Deductibles are now as high as $3000.
To think a major upheaval in the health care system under Obama's "legacy" law isn't directly responsible for this is shortsighted.
in many ObamaKKKare policies, the entire bill is deductible and there is effectively no insurance coverage.....

so it is natural and expected for doctors and hospitals to be cautious about newly "insured" patients with marginal credit histories.....particularly when the treatment is non-emergency.....

most physicians request the deductible when the patient checks in for the office visit....cash, check, or credit card accepted.....

You retired from a part time job to collect Social Security.

And you're a big enough hypocrite to take the Socialist money while biting the hand that feeds you.

I don't there is any "one" solution. But I do know this: if you have a large prison population who convicted felons; then when they serve their time, they can't get jobs, apartments, bank loans, student loans, thereby guaranteeing recidivism., People have to eat, everyone deserves a second chance. Probation and parole have provisions that the person has to work. I think re entry programs, halfway houses, skill teaching helps with those who do not have the wherewithal to navigate life once out of prison. I would rather help people get on their feet so that they do not have to commit crimes to survive.
there will always be a percentage of career criminals in society but it does not represent the majority. Minimum wage should be raised so that people do not need subsidies by the government.
depends on the crime.....

many businesses would be reluctant to hire anyone convicted of a violent crime......

nor would they hire someone convicted of fraud to handle money.....

German Christians, much to their credit, were prepared to be human bombs,
in attempts to assassinate Hitler. In the attempts they were not able to get close enough to kill Hitler. Thus none were carried out. BBC Magazine past issues documented this.

"Fracking Earthquakes: Injection Practice Linked to Scores of Tremors
Charles Choi, LiveScience Contributor | August 06, 2012 06:43pm ET
Drilling rig in the Bakken.
A drilling rig in the Bakken Formation of North Dakota near the town of Stanley. "Fracking" or hydraulic fracturing is used in this area to tap oil reserves.
Earthquakes triggered by fluids injected deep underground, such as during the controversial practice of fracking, may be more common than previously thought, a new study suggests.
Fluid injections into Earth are not uncommon. For instance, in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, water, sand and other materials are injected under high pressure into a well to fracture rock, opening fissures that help natural gas flow out more freely. Fluid-injection operations are also used to help get power from geothermal energy, and to dispose of waste.
However, researchers have long known that fluid-injection operations can trigger earthquakes. For instance, in 2006 one geothermal energy site triggered four earthquakes in Basel, Switzerland, ranging from 3.1 to 3.4 on the Richter scale. Fracking also appears linked with Oklahoma's strongest recorded quake in 2011, as well as a spate of more than 180 minor tremors in Texas between Oct. 30, 2008, and May 31, 2009.
It remains unclear why some injection wells set off earthquakes whereas others do not. To find out, seismologist Cliff Frohlich at the University of Texas at Austin analyzed seismic activity in the Barnett Shale of northern Texas between November 2009 and September 2011 and compared the properties of injection wells located near quake epicenters. He relied on mobile seismometers deployed as part of the EarthScope USArray program over an approximately 23,000-square-mile (60,000 square kilometer) area.
Frohlich identified the epicenters for 67 earthquakes — more than eight times as many as reported by the National Earthquake Information Center — with magnitudes of 3.0 or less. Most were located within a few miles of one or more injection wells, suggesting injection-triggered quakes might be more common than thought.
"We found a lot of events that weren't getting reported," Frohlich told LiveScience.
A third of the quakes clustered into eight geographic regions. All of the wells nearest the epicenters within these areas reported high rates of injection exceeding 150,000 barrels (17.6 million liters) of water per month.
Still, Frohlich noted the Barnett Shale hosts more than 100 wells with similar injection rates that experienced no nearby earthquakes during the time he studied them. He suggests that fluid injection may trigger earthquakes only if fluids reach and relieve friction on a nearby fault.
Frohlich said he would like to investigate fluid-injection operations in other areas, such as the Eagle Ford Shale in Texas, the Bakken Shale in North Dakota, or the Marcellus Shale on the U.S. East Coast, "and see if we see the same type of thing or not, and if there's a cutoff in terms of what volume of fluid injection might cause quakes."...."
this study attempts to link earthquakes to wastewater disposal by injection wells, which is not part of the fracking process itself....

there are other methods for treatment and disposal of fracking wastewater....

learn to read or get an education...

Sterling has a history of squeezing a profit out of terrible teams by not paying big salaries....until the present team......
Donald Sterling’s wife of more than 50 years describes his alleged mistress as a gold digger who seduces older, wealthy men and persuades them to shower her with gifts, according to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on March 7.
The Clippers team owner and a woman identified as V. Stiviano allegedly began an affair after meeting at the 2010 Super Bowl game and were still in the relationship as of the filing date, according to the lawsuit filed by Rochelle H. Sterling, who is described in the suit as "a married woman seeking to protect and recover community property in her individual capacity."
Rochelle Sterling alleges that her husband used community property to buy Stiviano a 2012 Ferrari, two Bentleys and a 2013 Range Rover, worth a total of more than $500,0000.
Sterling also allegedly gave Stiviano $1.8 million to buy a duplex on West 4th Street near the Beverly Center last December, according to the suit, which claims that Sterling additionally provided her with $240,000 for upkeep and living expenses.
The property was supposed to be held in the Sterlings’ name, Rochelle Sterling contends, but Stiviano has title and has refused to relinquish it. Arguing that the gifts were all allegedly made without Rochelle Sterling’s knowledge or consent, the complaint seeks their return along with compensatory damages.
The suit, which includes as defendants unnamed agents and employees of Stiviano, alleges that before the complaint was filed, Donald Sterling asked her to return the property. The complaint also says that Stiviano goes by several other names, including Vanessa Maria Perez, Monica Gallegos and Maria Valdez.

History eh? He bought the San Diego Clippers for around $13 million in 1981 and today the franchise is worth +/-$575 million. He's the most tenured owner in the NBA. He also once owned a hockey team.

He's got loose lips__loose lips sink ships.

Meanwhile his team has to face additional pressure during a playoff run.
