More ground breaking news from the world of libroid goofballs.........
Check this one out OMTE.
"Climate change said driving force behind larger, more extreme wildfires"
#24704 Sep 17, 2013
So Obama and company don't know how many States there are, or how many counties are in Hawaii; and yet they want folks to believe in their climate change crap papers put out by the White House.
Obama said there was 57 States, and a few more to visit.
Now he says there are 31 Counties in Hawaii, but Hawaii only has 5 counties....
"This is the best justification research they can offer? What the hell are they smoking there in the White House?"

Climate Change is no longer based on science, as science is NOT able to prove or disprove anything about the Climate.
Climate change is now a "Faith based New Age Religion."
And we have our number one missionary right here on topix, Oh my.
Oh my's missionary zeal is unequal in the White House, as those folks in that House are wishy washy, whereas Oh my is a dedicated zealot in the faith of climate change.
Even though faced with disreputable evidence, the climate zealots continue to insist someday we are going to have climate change that is going to destroy the world..a bunch of chicken little's.
I agree on the climate change part only, as it has been changing since the world was created, nothing new here.

"Center for American Progress’ Christie Hefner: Climate change a factor in Chicago’s murder rate."
I guess she's mad cause Dad didn't put her pic in his mag....

Damn you and your pesky facts.
Right Wingers have their view of the world - and they don't want to be bothered with those pesky facts.
#24708 Sep 17, 2013
You freeloading deadbeat Right Wingers may be able to keep your lips latched onto the government teat for years to come.
Whatever you do.. Keep whining like little girls when asked to pay taxes for those fun wars you all love to start, after all, a day when we don't bomb someone, somewhere, for something, is a day wasted.
And don't forget to keep supporting those draft-dodging cowardly war mongers, and avoiding service yourself.
Hey.. Keep that up and you could be a Right Wing Wacko president !

Thanks for taking the bull by the horns. I'm notsure which incarnation, be it oh my, io or jeb you're answering, but I know for a fact that you are 100% correct in this example. Just looking at the incarnations stupid question/comment it's obvious it has no idea what it's talking about. Kinda like crazy joe biden, mr. foot in mouth himself.
The lead thing comes with a bit more than you described. Not only does the contractor, who must personally be present on the job in it's entirety, have to spend time and money getting "certified", said contractor must then register with the government for a fee, and maintain said registration on the outside chance that the contractor might have to cut a hole in a floor or house built before 1978.
The contractor must also know the ages and child bearing potential of the occupants.
To answer the question, what is a mom and pop? That answer changes depending on the mood of the government and the special treatment some will get. It used to mean less than 250 employees. Then it went to less than 50 employees, unless you are in the construction industry, where the obamacare bureaucrats tried to reduce that to 5 employees at the insistence of the unions. Now they want to redefine it again to gross payroll of $250,000.00. I areas where skilled blue collar or white collar folks are employed, it goes well over this in a small company.
The problems are many. Government continually changes the rules so uncertainty becomes an unnecessary part of every decision a small business person has to make. Gross sales have never been part of the consideration when defining small businesses to my knowledge.
Please pardon my absence from the debate. I'm busy trying to make sure my employees will have something to do next week and that I will have enough cash to make payroll.
Stressful sometimes, but I am blessed and I know it.

No. I have to be precise.
Every watch all those "Family Farms" where Dad drives a beat up pick-up truck to that pretty red barn where the son stands staring into the distant sky - waiting to pull a meager living from that unyielding land.
Yep.. They deserve government subsidies to protect the family farm and a break in inheritance taxes so the family farm can be passed down to future generations.
In reality, that's ADM making billions a year in profits, millionaires subsidized by working men, the continued accumulation of wealth in the hands of the very few as a result of estate tax exemption of over $5,250,000.00

just curious. How much does topix pay you to make stupid comments in order to keep the click count high?

And for the right amount of grant money the "scientific community" will come up with whatever the grantor would like to see.
#24713 Sep 17, 2013
#24715 Sep 17, 2013
Exactly; most scientist live off gubmint funding. They will pervert the facts, the findings, and any other data to continue their grants.
Simple economics for them.
And boys like Gore play off this to keep their millions rolling in.
#24716 Sep 17, 2013
u r welcome.
#24717 Sep 17, 2013
I wasn't referring to you dummy.
BTW - you've never been precise.
#24718 Sep 17, 2013
So much for a liberal believing in gun control...
"FRIEND: Navy Yard Shooter Liberal, Supported Obama"
I'm waiting to hear Obama say "if I had a son, he would be like Aaron Alexis."
#24719 Sep 17, 2013
You do understand you defeat your own argument ?
You start out explaining how wrong those of us are who point out that generalized, vague, imprecise terms are an anathema to logical discourse;
then you devote 90% of your post to describing how difficult is is to assure all parties share a common definition.
Thanks for the humor.
I am a "Pop", if my business grosses over $3 Million a year in revenue is my business is a "Mom and Pop" business?

"Census on Obama’s 1st Term: Real Median Income Down $2,627; People in Poverty Up 6,667,000; Record 46,496,000 Now Poor"
Many more to be added after Obamacare kicks in, and folks have to pay out more than they have.
I'm posting this as written and I get this message from topix "Please refrain from posting profanity or offensive material.
Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator."
Was it because I used the "Thanks" word?? The "Obama" name??
or was it the "kicks" word?? or maybe the "many" word, or the "or" word or the "in" word??
I really-really think it was because I used the "Census" word.
#24721 Sep 17, 2013
It was just too good to be true....
Hillary not talking is like a pig not squealing....
#24722 Sep 17, 2013
Now that is real cool- trying to politicize a national tragedy before the victims are even buried. I wondered who would be the first to do it- I should have known!
#24723 Sep 17, 2013
You aint no Pop, you're a Flop.
But to answer the ?.
If family owned, there is no limit to amount made to be called a Mom & Pop business. Amount of Revenue does NOT take away the classification.
