...who would have guessed???...
why should we care?

But I do understand her making it public. Given the hatred, bias, misunderstanding our society has towards homosexuals, I think its important that people like her and that Pro NBA'er come out and announce their homosexuality. Just to show the bigots in our society that homosexuals are normal everyday Americans.

I can still remember my grandmother referring to blacks as darkies
and my father using the infamous "N" word....however as time went on his attitude changed and became more encompassing of all Americans. I think that when he found out his nephew was gay, that wall started to crumble.

We're all in this together...its time we started thinking of Planet Earth as a lifeboat floating through space....either we all learn to work together or we all perish

You have never been able to comprehend anything. Go back and re-read my post. It only pertains to those who do NOT carry health insurance. Those responsible adults who find themselves filing bankruptcy based on medical issues despite the fact they have health insurance will still be able to discharge those expenses in bankruptcy.

Russia has treated the people of Chechnya, Dagestan, and other muslim republics horribly, and will reap what it has sown.
They have waited for this opportunity. Expect lots of bombings.
Obama was smart to announce he won't attend.
Looks like we'll learn what sort of leader Putin really is eh?

It'll be interesting to see how long his Islamic allies, Syria, Iran etc. will hang around when he starts slaughtering Muslims in Russia and the stans.

'Arctic air turns temperatures frigid from Rockies to Minnesota'
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/arctic-air-turns-...
scientists have been observing this for the past few years, I read about it a couple of years ago. The effect on climate in the U.S. is that weather storms will be more severe. The cold air comes down into the middle of the U.S. meeting warm moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico

Now, one would ask why are these jet streams, which used to circle the polar regions, coming south.

LOSS OF ARCTIC ICE.

As the polar ice cap shrinks, the up flow of cold air that controlled the circular polar jet streams don't have those barriers. As such, the cold polar jet streams dip into the continental U.S.

Global Warming/Climate change also explain why winters in NE U.S. and NW Europe will be more severe. The Gulf Stream which moderates winters in those areas becomes weaker, as the polar waters warm up. The temperature difference between the polar and equatorial waters is what drives the Gulf Stream. As this difference gets smaller, the engine that drives the Gulf weakens.

I find it amusing that people who don't understand science, and global warming point to severe winter weather as proof global warming is a hoax, whereas the truth is global warming actually predicts those effects

""John Boehner: Conservative Groups Have Lost All Credibility""

""House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) assailed conservative groups Thursday for opposing the latest budget deal, saying they had crossed a line and lost their credibility.

"This budget agreement takes giant steps in the right direction," Boehner said at a press conference. "But when groups come out and criticize something they've never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are."

Boehner has been reticent in the past to criticize conservative outside groups, such as Heritage Action and Club for Growth. Some of the groups have had a considerable influence on the tea party faction among House Republicans, and were the rallying force behind the effort to either defund Obamacare or shut down the federal government.

For the first time, Boehner acknowledged that these groups pushed Republicans into an unsuccessful strategy that he didn't favor. He expressed particular outrage that one of the groups later said it knew the shutdown strategy wasn't going to work.

"Are you kidding me?" Boehner shouted.

"Frankly I think they're misleading their followers. I think they're pushing our members in places they don't want to be," he added. "And frankly I just think they've lost all credibility.""

UPDATED! Canary Islands Evacuating! MAGNA RISING Tsunami Threat to U.S. Eastcoast

December 28, 2013

More than 550 earthquakes rattled the island between Monday and Wednesday, also centered on La Restinga. About 30 of the earthquakes were greater than magnitude 3, Involcan said. The earthquakes are triggered by magma rising underground, fracturing rocks and swelling the surface as the hot rock reaches upward.“The earthquake swarm corresponds to a new magmatic intrusion,” Involcan said this morning in a statement.

Today’s preliminary magnitude-5.1 earthquake was on the opposite side of the island from the ongoing swarm.

Concern of a possible Tsunami following a large chunk of a mountain falling into the sea is now forefront. To everyone on the coast lands that might be affected by such a tsnumai, expect the best, prepare for the worst...

Really? How's that? In October, GM opened it's new $200 million stamping plant in Arlington, Texas and the two new plants opened prior to that were in Mexico....that was in 2008. Under the Obama administration, after downsizing, the plants in Orion Township, Michigan and Springhill, Tennessee have re-opened.
GM has always been a multi-national company. They had been particularly successful in China and were expanding in China long before Obama became president. The “old” GM (the one that went bankrupt) was the largest foreign car maker in China in 2008.
Bottom line is...GM is a U.S.-based multinational auto company. The better they do internationally, the better for us but to claim Obama has outsourced GM jobs overseas is a LIE.
