.....he is making those documents available to the Congressional Intelligence Committees. I glad, this should be on a "need to know" basis. Not all of us which especially would be our enemy needs to know.

FYI

I brought up Topix today, and Whammo! My malware software came up and advised me that it had blocked a malicious site. Apparently Topix has joined the Malware community, and is using Specificclick.net to track you. If you didnít get a message from your anti-virus or malware software, you now have their cookie. Donít panic, itís not a virus, but you may not like what its doing:

specificclick.net is a domain used by SpecificClick which is an advertising company that is part of a network of sites, cookies, and other technologies used to track you, what you do and what you click on, as you go from site to site, surfing the Web. Over time, sites like specificclick.net can help make an online profile of you usually including the sites you visit, your searches, purchases, and other behavior. Your profile can then be exchanged and sold between various companies like specificclick.net as well as being sold to other advertisers and marketers.

It isnít a fluke, and is getting annoying, since it comes up on every new page of Topix.

Forget Big Brother spying on you. Topix is.

I thought while I had time this morning, I would answer a question from "Hey" regarding what I feed my cows. I use rotational pasture for most of the year, and feed grass hay for winter. When it is exceptionally cold, snowy or wet, I suppliment that grass hay with a corn and molasses feed which is made at a local mill. It has no antibiotic added, and I only use antibiotics when absolutely necessary. BUT, I sell my calves, and the bulk of those probably end up on feedlots, so I assume they do end up being fed antibiotic laced feeds and those lots probably use all of the other factory farm tricks to put on the most pounds in the least amount of time.
With the loss of tobacco as a cash crop, farming is a marginal enterprise around here, and I would be hard pressed to live on the profits from raising beef cattle in East Tennessee.

Linda, I just have to wonder if Sen. Tracy(R-Shelbyville) is fiscally responsible enough to care for all living Americans. As this ultra-sound/heart beat monitoring will cost all taxpayers. I hope he is and gives all living Americans the medical care to live a good life.
This is what God would like us to do!
But I'm sure he is opposed to our President Obamas "Affordable Care Act".

Obamacare strikes again.

Apending federal food-labeling rule that stems from the new health care law would cost thousands of grocers and convenience store owners -- to the tune of $1 billion in the first year alone.

The rule stems from an ObamaCare mandate that restaurants provide nutrition information on menus [does anyone actually read those things?]. But now, the FDA wants to extend it to the food you buy in convenience stores, small deliís, and supermarkets. You know, the sammichís you buy. The cole slaw and macaroni salad, etc.

And while Mcdonalds and Chic-Fil-A can afford to have itís food analyzed, a process that involves expensive software or sending food portions to testing facilities, mom and pop shops, even mid-size grocery chains, wonít be able to afford the added expense.

Which means they are either going to stop offering this food, or raise the prices.

And who benefits? I think Walmart can afford the software. So can Publix and other large chains. Mom and pop stores get screwed - as does the consumer.

Bend over, Joe six-pak. Obama care strikes again!

Rove is trying to make Republican candidates more electable in general elections, but in the process he may be tossing out the most reliable Republican voters, the far right of the Republican party. If he manages to pull the party to the center, I look for the right wing to leave and form a splinter group. The Dems had this problem after the civil rights votes of the 60s. Southern Democrats formed the Dixiecrats, and that left a weakened the Democratic Party. It took several years before those Dixiecrats found a home in the Republican party, and helped them win a string of elections.
In my opinion, Tea Party will not take this Rove initiative lightly, and if they leave, it could result in an electoral disaster for Republicans.
For now, the GOP is between a rock and a hard place.

The price per pound paid to farmers collapsed as inputs like fuel, fertilizer etc doubled then doubled again. This is partly due to foreign competition from places like Argentina and Brazil, and partly the fault of the demise of the Federal Tobacco Program which used poundage quotas to limit the amount of tobacco a farmer could grow. Those limits held up the price and made smaller family farms viable. The program did NOT cost taxpayers a dime since it was paid for by a penny or two per pound paid into a fund which was used to finance the program.
The last year that the program was in effect, tobacco brought an average of $1.94 a pound. The next year,$1.55. Fertilizer increased from approx $90.00 a ton to $450.00 a ton and you already know what has happened to fuel.
Cigarettes, taking into account the additional taxes levied on them, INCREASED in price as the cost of cigarette tobacco declined. So much for that supply and demand theory.
The loss of the program combined with a huge increase of imports of tobacco from cheaper labor countries, ended tobacco growing and took millions in income out of the economy of counties like the one I live in. This ended a way of life for many East Tennesseans that had lasted for generations.

I think Topix has been doing that for a while because I have noticed when I come on Topix the advertisements are for stuff that I have recently shopped online. I run CC Cleaner regularly to try to keep that crap cleaned off my computer.

We can only hope...OH BOY, can we hope! Lol!

I actually do hope that the Republicans get rid of that Lunatic Tea Party bunch, the Far-Right Members, and become a more Moderate Conservative Party. I think that would be good for the Country and help keep the Dems on their toes and make them serve the average American People better.
I'm hoping that what we seeing now is a painful transition to a better and improved political system that will eventually turn out to be better representation for ALL Americans, not just the Rich and Powerful.
Then, maybe this Country will start to mend, heal, and move forward, and we can get back on the road to being the great and prosperous Country that we we once were with opportunities for EVERYBODY.
As it is now, there's a very few trying to pull us along and all of these Albatrosses trying to pull us backwards into a black hole, with the Super Rich and Powerful giving them water and cheering them on!

Trying to explain the zero economic growth at the end of 2012, White House spokesman Jay Carney blamed Republicans for "talk about letting the sequester kick in as though that were an acceptable thing."

He left out that President Obama proposed the sequester in 2011.

On Tuesday Mr. Obama warned about "the threat of massive automatic cuts that have already started to affect business decisions."

Donít make me laugh. When has Obama EVER worried about business decisions?

The sequester would cut an estimated $85 billion from the budget this fiscal year starting in March. Half of the savings would come from defense and half from domestic discretionary programs. Medicare providers would take a 2% cut.

Thatís just a little bit more that the Sandy relief bill that HAD to be passed, despite the fact that barely half of it will actually go to relieve Sandy victims.

The media is starting to get in gear to make this out to be the worst thing to happen to the economy, but in reality, it is only about 0.5% of GDP. In other words, itís a drop in the bucket.

But itíll work quite well on stupid people.
