Electricity bills will go up at least $250 to $300 a year here. In the summer, electricity costs a small fortune already. An average monthly bill of $175 will now be over $200. The more square footage, the higher the bill. Our last bill was $239.63. The highest it's ever been. Floridians will have to start rationing A/C usage.

So, I suppose this means you now don't have a problem with paying the other poster's school choice.
It's neither here nor there, it's a state's function. Indiana passed a school voucher system.
Libs want to keep the ghetto in the ghetto with no choice.
You whiners actually think school choice will help poor kids,.

The fact is a few may get out of these under performing schools & you whiners will pat yourself on the back & say what a wonderful thing you did.

But the reality is that you left the vast majority behind in that school with now less funding.

I fund the public school system. Send your snotty nosed brats there or pay to send them elsewhere.

When it was last discussed in PA, it was estimated that more than half the money on vouchers would go to students already in private school.

So really, how many poor kids do you think these vouchers will help?

If these vouchers cover 50-60% the cost of some private schools, how many parents can afford the remainder.

This argument that school vouchers is about poor kids in ghetto school is a nothing but a lie.

GOP Straight Up Bribes Democratic Senator In Effort To Block Obamacare

The Republican Party in Virginia has resorted to what appears to be outright bribery in its ongoing effort to deny low-income residents in the state access to the Medicaid expansion authorized by Obamacare.

The Washington Post is reporting that Republicans offered to move Democratic state Sen. Phillip P. Puckett and his daughter into prestigious jobs in exchange for Puckett's resignation, which will flip the chamber into Republican hands. Pucket will officially accept the offer on Monday, the paper reported.

The Senate was on course to pass an expansion of Medicaid, as the law allows, while the House of Delegates, in GOP hands, aimed to block it. In such a scenario, Democrats hoped that Republicans would be blamed for the resulting government shutdown. With Republicans in control of both chambers, Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) must now veto the GOP budget in order to force a showdown over Medicaid.

The apparent quid pro quo has sent Democrats railing.

“It’s astounding to me. The House Republican caucus will do anything and everything to prevent low-income Virginians from getting healthcare… They figure the only way they could win was to give a job to a state senator,” Del. Scott A. Surovell (D-Fairfax) told the Washington Post.“At least they can’t offer Terry McAuliffe a job. I hope Terry continues to stand up to these bullies.”

It wasn't supposed to work this way, but since Obamacare took effect in January, Norton Hospital has seen its packed emergency room become even more crowded, with about 100 more patients a month. A trillion dollars. Did you know the Obamacare bill started out as a bill to house Veterans? Where is the out-rage?

Police investigating if neo-Nazi motives were behind Las Vegas shooting

One of the shooters yelled, "This is a revolution." After shooting the officers, they removed their badges, weapons and ammunition and covered them with the Gadsden flag, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal, which added that the flag, named for revolution-era general Christopher Gadsden, "has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement."

Okay..let me get this right-

You want me to read the words of someone who deserted he platoon, confuses there w their (and a couple of other obvious wonderments), exclaims his appreciation for the beauty of the Hindu Kush region, as if on a vacay tour of the Silk Road, all while calling some one else incompetent??

Okkkkkkay....but I'm still thinking an investigation is applicable...

And a psychological exam def in order as well.

Over the next month, as he saw more of the war firsthand, Bowe's e-mails to his family lost their sense of absurdity and took on a darker edge. In one heartbreaking incident at the end of May, an Afghan official and four of his children were killed in a Taliban attack. The bodies were moved to Bowe's outpost, along with a wounded Afghan police officer.

In early June, after photographs taken by Sean Smith appeared in The Guardian, Bowe's unit got reamed out by its commander for its lack of discipline. Bowe's squad leader, Sgt. Greg Leatherman, was demoted, and two other sergeants in the squad were reassigned. According to Fancey, one was made "a gate guard for the rest of the deployment." As often happens in the Army, senior officers were going unpunished for screw-ups like the MRAP mission, while lower-ranking men paid the price for minor infractions.

The unit, for its part, continued to bungle even the most basic aspects of military duty. During the last week of June, the platoon spent a day resupplying at Forward Operating Base Sharana. When someone in the unit lost his weapon, everyone in the platoon had to drop what they were doing and look for it. To make matters worse, on an earlier trip to Sharana, 10 members of the platoon had been poached to pull guard duty at another base, leaving the unit even more undermanned than usual.
