Barack Obama, our next President

Hostess RIP?
Fox will blame Obama and the evil unions!

Sniff sniff... You can be assured the hostess CEO will scamper off with millions.
PrivCo, a company that researches privately-held firms, estimates that at the end of 2011, Hostess had $40.3 million in cash and $1.43 billion in liabilities, including $303 million in debt that came due this year. PrivCo CEO Sam Hamadeh calls these figures a “recipe for a disaster in the making.”
Hamadeh says the company’s “onerous union contracts and its massively unfunded pension obligations” are a big part of the problem.“As of January 2012, Hostess’ pension fund was approximately $2 billion underfunded,”.
Hostess is trying to shed some of these obligations via bankruptcy proceedings, but management is finding out that unionized rank-and-file workers aren’t on board with these concessions and want the company to uphold its collective bargaining agreements made in better times.
The rising cost of ingredients like flour and sugar also put a squeeze on Hostess’s bottom line.

Since the reelection of President Obama, there’s been a surge of interest in secession. A petition on the White House webpage requesting that Washington allow Texas to secede has attracted over 100,000 signatures. The Washington Examiner notes that similar petitions have been established for Alaska, Rhode Island, New York, Maryland, Florida, Tennessee and Georgia, although these have attracted fewer signatures.
The petitions have no legal force and are semi-anonymous. Nevertheless, Erick Erickson of RedState thought it worth the effort to read them out of the conservative movement. Texas governor Rick Perry apparently concurs.
These developments are little more than linkbait for liberal bloggers. No state is going to secede. And I doubt that many of the petitioners are serious about wanting to do so.

linkbait.
There was also a petition from residents living in a city in Texas, I believe it was Austin, to secede from Texas and remain part of the United States of America.

Partisans Are Free To Be Embarrassed by Romney Once More

Scott Galupo observes that Jennifer Rubin’s pro-Romney cheerleading has suddenly vanished now that he is yesterday’s man, and adds:

You know what might help improve conservative “messaging” problems in future campaigns? A more honest class of professional pundits.

Rubin was an extreme example of completely shameless Romney boosterism over the last year, but like a lot of other partisans she defended many Romney blunders during the campaign no matter how absurd they might have been. This wasn’t just a matter of covering for a candidate’s mistakes, which is what one can expect from partisan supporters. More often, this involved celebrating the candidate’s failures as brilliant masterstrokes that would carry the ticket to victory. According to this view, Romney’s foreign trip was a triumph, his response to the Benghazi and Cairo attacks was appropriate and correct, and his 47% comments were a clever indictment of the incumbent’s agenda.

There was a brief period in late September when many conservative activists claimed to be pleased by Romney’s 47% comments because they thought he was making a valid and vitally important argument. Because it was neither valid nor popular, that particular pro-Romney argument died away fairly quickly, but the partisan impulse to make excuses for one’s candidate and otherwise “get with the program” remained as strong as ever. Once Romney lost, his partisan boosters could return to their previous disdain for him, and they were suddenly free to be embarrassed by him. Partisan and personal political incentives now direct these former boosters to create as much distance between the party and its failed nominee as possible. It should be kept in mind that it was the same impulse that earlier drove Romney supporters to ignore all of the signs that their candidate was failing and to overlook the evidence that he was a poor candidate for the Presidency.

You're an old fool with old, outdated ideas. Being from Centralia, PA, it's no surprise. THe fumes melted your brain years ago!!

I've destroyed your arguments many times, but you just keep coming back, promoting the same stupid nonsense.

Reality check...teens have been having sex for eons. You can't prevent that or believe it away. Exposure to TV, movies, the media, friends, etc., may encourage sex, but no matter, they'd be doing it anyway. Once those hormones kick in, there's no stopping those urges, unless we understand the nature of the beast. E D U C A T I O N is not ignorance; refusing to educate our children is. Condoms can help to prevent a lot of unwanted pregnancies, and that also means less abortions. Now what is so wrong with that, considering the population is exploding, along with poverty and soaring medical costs.
There you go, using logic again. Fetus worshipers and abstinence advocates refuse to understand human nature, biology, or the consequences of deliberate ignorance.

I have a friend whose daughter was conceived during TMI. She has a gene defect that will kill her. I live in the TMI area & I have heard what happened.

There was significant radiation leaked & it had a negative effect on many people.

They just had an emergency shut down at TMI about a month ago.

So Chernobyl was not a nuclear disaster? That design is still used today.

As for particulates, so does coal. You said smoke from wood was worse, it is not. Wood smoke does not contain sulfur & mercury.

The difference between Republicans and Democrats:
A Republican and a Democrat were walking down the street when they came to a homeless person. The Democrat gave the homeless person his business card and told him to come to his business for a job. He then took twenty dollars out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.
The Republican was very impressed and when they came to another homeless person, he decided to help. He walked over to the homeless person and gave him directions to the welfare office. He then reached into the Democrats pocket and gave the homeless man fifty dollars.
Now you know the difference between Republicans and Democrats.

Duh a vey's been pondering some actual factual SCIENCE? lol

Nuke power used to have some pretty strident guidelines, that required some pretty in depth training-like radiation emmissions testing.

Expensive to build, expensive to maintain, expensive to market and not the best longevity when considering all the expenses.

When Three mile Island mildly melted, remember who was right on the spot, over seeing it one hundred percent of the way-

James Earl Carter...of the people, by the People, FOR the People. NO dumping responsibility off on others there. One time when that degree in nuclear PHYSICS came in handy too no doubt.

NO matter what Peppy and other duhmbos say.
