•Flat fee: The first tier for lower income taxpayers is fixed, starting at $95 for calendar year 2014 (the first year the mandate is effective),$325 in 2015, and $695 in 2016 and beyond. The total family penalty is capped at 300% of this flat dollar tax —$2,085 in 2016 – for those earning less than about $110,000, according to the CRS.
•Percentage of income: The next tier is based upon a percentage of income: 1.0% in 2014, 2.0% in 2015, and 2.5% thereafter.
•Cost of a basic health plan: However, as household income increases, eventually the percentage tax will rise to equal the cost of the national average premium for a “bronze-level health plan,” where it is capped.(The bronze plan is expected to be the least expensive plan in the line-up of policies that will be offered through the ObamaCare health insurance exchanges. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that in 2016 the cost of a bronze-level plan for a family would be between $12,000 and $12,500 a year.)
Nothing like the Commucrats creating an unlevel playing field to run private businesses bankrupt!! Better hope you don't need their services!!

That depends on whether it was made for drinking or selling.
Really good sour mash corn shine with apple slices pickled in it makes it smooth . Problem is you can drink it like water and then bad things may start to happen. Don't eat many of the apple slices either because you may find yourself unexpectedly incapacitated. There is nothing in the ABC store like it.

I never drank. I knew from my father's use that I was not going to travel that road. Some people can handle it, some can't. I just know that I am probably genetically pre-disposed. Drink on those who can. I have no problem with it.

TSF, I'm afraid the ATF will be knocking tonight thinking we're making a batch of moonshine..go figure. I'm probably on their list too. I don't drink at all. I just read Arnold's post and I understand him because there's more than one alcoholic in my family and I've always been afraid, I'd be just another drunk. You make it sound good but for a tee-totaler, don't you think if I were to drink, I ought to start with something a little less, well a little less....STRONG!?!?!!

This is kinda strange this conversation, bcause I'm 15 years sober TODAY folks. Believe me, I've drank it all and good shine you can't beat. Like I said, my
Grandmother made peach, apple, grape, strawberry, blueberry, you name it. It was a norm I guess it the day. I forgot "corn".:)

Congrats Lu!!! Drinking has always been the norm I guess, but not for me. I wonder how many people on here have done things sober they wished they could have said they were drunk or "flying"? I know I have. When I was young, I would do anything from a dare and the things I did. Now I look back and say "what was I thinking", clearly I wasn't, and I wasn't even impaired. I just did it.

From your own link:

Note also that the idiot officers, after demanding that Fleming land, had to be told to clear their vehicles off the runway so he could land. Again: THESE IDIOTS ARE OUT OF CONTROL
<quoted text>
arguing semantics much?...because it also clearly states in the article...

"Fleming recalls that at some point someone requested he land at Hartsville, but then he was told he could continue. He climbed to 3,100 feet msl, circling to the northeast away from the lake, and planned to head back to Bermuda High Soaring; but he lost lift and descended to 1,900 feet msl. He turned toward Hartsville again, but found a thermal and climbed to 2,740 feet.“All I needed was another few hundred feet” to return to Bermuda High, he said. But he received a radio transmission for Hartsville telling him to land.

At the airport, Griffin said the officers on the scene told her to demand the glider land at Hartsville, but that an FAA official on the phone said the FAA was not demanding he land. So, she said, she gave Fleming a choice:“Police officers here are asking you to land, but the FAA says you do not have to land. I’m leaving this up to you.” Fleming said to tell the officers he’d be there in a minute, she recalled.

These accounts seem consistent with the Darlington County Sheriff Department’s incident report. Capt. Joyce C. Everett wrote that the suspect was “advised” to land at Hartsville, and that he had advised he was going to land elsewhere because he didn’t want to have his airplane towed. When he was instructed again to land in Hartsville, Everett wrote, he did. In a supplementary report, Sgt. Christopher J. Pittman wrote,“It is unclear as to exactly how that radio conversation went, but the pilot initially stated that he intended to land at Bermuda High landing strip in Jefferson, SC. After it was made clear that law enforcement expected him to land in Hartsville the pilot stated that he would comply.”

The arrest report, however, paints a different picture, alleging that Fleming “had to be ordered several times to land” before he complied. Griffin strongly contests this version of events:“I was the only one on the unicom with him,” she said.“I never demanded him to land.”

and in the second article...The sheriff says...

"Darlington County, S.C., Sheriff J. Wayne Byrd offered responses to some of the most common critiques from pilots after its publication. Byrd explained the decisions that led to the breach of peace charge, acknowledged mistaken assumptions that exacerbated the situation, and said the department had learned lessons on how better to respond in the future

Byrd acknowledged that the department had received many emails and calls, and that the Facebook account had been inundated with comments. He defended the department’s initial response to a call from the nuclear power plant security, but said that department staff probably should have realized earlier that the glider was not a threat.


“I’m not taking up for … mistakes that were made, but when you get a call from a facility like that, certain decisions have to be made within minutes and seconds,” Byrd said.“And the de-escalation comes afterwards.”

Unfortunately, the sheriff’s department didn’t de-escalate the situation as much as it should have, he said. But he defended the decision to hold Robin Fleming overnight and charge him with breach of peace. He said the local FBI had told them to hold the pilot for questioning, something they couldn’t do without a charge. The breach of peace charge is minor, he said, used for anything out of the ordinary, especially something that causes a law enforcement response."

Like you TSF, I can cherry pick to make my case too.
