Another sore loser; must be a republican!
I wondered if the Texans shut off the A/C at the first game between the Heat and Spurs!
They can only win by cheating; but the Heat beat them last night and Tuesday they come back to Miami. Go Heat!
I was very disappointed, I was rooting for the horse myself. All the goodwill they had built up over the last few weeks and then to come out whining and bitching and moaning, even his wife was embarrassed for him.

How did Democrats help all those poor neighborhoods? Unemployment among minorities is 16%. Working Americans are getting less in our paychecks and many full-time employees are now being forced to work part-time.
Electricity bills are going to be even higher because Obama and Democrats don't like mining (or drilling) natural energy resources which are abundant.
Democrats did not see the danger in subprime mortgages and curbing the housing market collapse in time. Obama's proposed budgets were rejected by both Democrats and Republicans. They were more spending sprees. And this country doesn't know if it's coming or going under this administration anymore.
To a lot of people nowadays, Republicans are starting to look pretty darn good.
lol! poor baby. Incog believes gas drilling is a nationalized industry.

So lost.... so, so lost as usual!!!

Here is a tip concerning picking a new POTUS--Democrats would be better off running an honest democrat instead of a RECYCLED FAILURE from our past... they should talk to John McCain.
He'll be way too old in 2024.

<quoted text>many of its columnists are intellectual psychopaths…. If you want one reason for why the international press is so hostile to Israel, it is because the only paper foreign journalists read is Haaretz in English. It is an exemplar of Jewish self-hate, full of ridicule, righteousness, and loathing. Its circulation is in the crapper, only leftish Jew haters in America are their readers. The "Hate Israel" and "Hate Jews" crowd which you, no doubt, belong to.
Its' amazing how you blame others but not yourself .

I guess that's your jewish idea of taking 'responsibility,' eh son?

To be fair to Galt; he did say no one buys Apple products because of the input of the workers.
Well, if the workers were not skilled at assembling the products; then they would not be as marketable. He is disparaging the workers.
I know, I was just messing with him.

if you object, don't buy Apple products....
surely, they will be crushed....
Apple's resurgent stock may have as much to do with financial engineering as the company's technological wizardry.

Monday marked Apple's first stock split in nine years, a move designed to make it more affordable to buy shares of the iPhone and iPad maker.

The maneuver provided a boost even before it was completed. Since the split was announced in late April, Apple's stock has climbed 24 percent, creating more than $100 billion in shareholder wealth while the Standard & Poor's 500 edged up just 4 percent.

Other factors contributed to the Apple rally: The company raised its quarterly dividend, committed an additional $30 billion to buying back its stock, struck a $3 billion deal to buy headphone maker Beats Electronics and previewed its latest software for iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.

But the stock split helped renew investor interest in Apple Inc., already the world's most valuable company.

According to The Rand Corporation's 2004 study:
VA patients received about two-thirds of the care recommended by national standards, compared with about half in the national sample.
Among chronic care patients, VA patients received about 70 percent of recommended care, compared with about 60 percent in the national sample.
For preventive care, the difference was greater: VA patients received about 65 percent of recommended care, while patients in the national sample received 20 percent less.
VA patients received consistently better care across the board, including screening, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
Quality of care for acute conditions — a performance area the VA did not measure — was similar for the two populations.
After adjusting for a changing case mix as younger veterans return from Iraq and Afghanistan, "the CBO calculated that the VA's average health care cost per enrollee grew by roughly 1.7% from 1999 to 2005, an annual growth rate of 0.3%. During the same time period, Medicare's per capita costs grew by 29.4 %, an annual growth rate of 4.4 %. In the private insurance market, premiums for family coverage jumped by more than 70%(PDF), according to the Kaiser Family Foundation."

Incredible! I wonder if she lost her house. She had to go back to work parttime.
Many retirees had to do the same after they lost their money in mutual funds that they thought would support them in retirement. This started during the Bush administration.

She thinks the government was the cause of those ills.

You bring up a good point, tho. Perhaps those reich wingers who are complaining about the government not protecting are those who were just as capitalistic as the mortgage bankers and banks who made the loans.

A Democratic state Senator is expected on Monday to announce that he is resigning, allowing Republicans to take control of the Virginia Senate after they promised important jobs to him and his daughter.
Sources told The Washington Post that Democratic state Sen. Phillip P. Puckett was expected to become deputy director of the state tobacco commission, and his daughter was expected to eventually get a judgeship in exchange for his resignation.
The resignation comes as Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe was in a bitter battle with Republicans to leverage the Affordable Care Act to expand the state’s Medicaid health care program for the poor. With Republicans holding 20-to-19 majority in the state Senate, McAuliffe’s Medicaid expansion plan would be considered doomed.
