And exactly where does it say that Obama's image would be on the coin? That was the crux of the argument with the ever mendacious DB. It's against federal law at any rate for the image of a living person to be on any coin issued by the government. So where did I lie "nosewax"?
By the way if you actually read the article, you'd see that many economists actually think that it's a brilliant idea.
WGAS lowlife? The point is you asked where he got this info from like he was making it up, yet it's nearly viral and you didn't even have a clue.

As usual, you don't have clue, moron. Have fun at your crappy job, zero.

Darden Restaurants tried the same thing and saw a 37% drop in profits. This action is sure to backfire with lower employee morale and subsequent turnover with added training costs.

1) Obama had a law degree when he worked as a summer intern, dufus.
2) Project Vote is some nebulous government gravy train bullshit, same as ACORN.
3) Name the cases.... having a problem there, aren't you? That's because Obama has never even seen the inside of a court room as a lawyer.
4) Passing the bar... prove it. Nobody has ever seen any proof of that.
Back to Obama's resume:
2 stints as a summer intern.
Some work on something called "Project Vote"
put on the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School without ever having seen the inside of a court room as a lawyer.
He summer interned in a law firm, not Project Vote.

He got involved with Project Vote after law school

He had his law license when hired as a lecturer at University of Chicago.

As a lawyer, he did try cases n a courtroom.

You are eirher one dumb f*ck or just a lying POS. Which is it?

You are aliar.

"In January, President Obama rejected the company’s previous application to build the full pipeline, saying a Congressional mandate that he decide on the project by mid-February did not allow adequate time to complete environmental reviews."

The original was changed. This new route needed environmental studies & they had not been completed.

So, why are you so uninformed?

Communist Vietcong dug tunnels were destroyed during TET offensive America had war won graphic news photos cost public opinion change. Walter Conkrite made statement that we were involved in stalemate in vietnam broke Nixon's heart. United States Military was thrilled that Vietcong had finally come out in open to fight. Time Magazine and Look Magazine hurt war efforts.

At a White House meeting about gun control this morning, Vice President Joe Biden said his boss was fully prepared to take executive action to reduce gun violence, an important but limited way to bypass the inevitable Congressional roadblocks.

“The president is going to act,” Mr. Biden said.“There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all.”

Most changes to the current system, which allows easy access to weapons with hugely destructive power, has to come through legislation. A renewed and more effective assault weapons ban, limits on high-capacity magazines, stiffer penalties for carrying guns near schools — all these measures would require the assent of Congress to be enacted. And Republicans, particularly in the House, have made it clear that they intend to oppose most of President Obama’s plans.

The paranoid spokesman, sees the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms — he traffics in the birth and death of whole worlds, whole political orders, whole systems of human values. He is always manning the barricades of civilization... he does not see social conflict as something to be mediated and compromised, in the manner of the working politician. Since what is at stake is always a conflict between absolute good and absolute evil, what is necessary is not compromise but the will to fight things out to a finish. Since the enemy is thought of as being totally evil and totally unappeasable, he must be totally eliminated — if not from the world, at least from the theatre of operations to which the paranoid directs his attention. This demand for total triumph leads to the formulation of hopelessly unrealistic goals, and since these goals are not even remotely attainable, failure constantly heightens the paranoid’s sense of frustration. Even partial success leaves him with the same feeling of powerlessness with which he began, and this in turn only strengthens his awareness of the vast and terrifying quality of the enemy he opposes.

nurses working 12 hour shifts is disturbing and mistakes happen in the last four hours.
Get your flu shot?
Anyone working 12 hour shifts is disturbing (and there's a LOT of people in a LOT of other professions that do), even if they do so by choice.

One overlooked culprit in the world’s obesity epidemic may be the alarm clock, according to Till Roenneberg, a professor at the University of Munich’s Institute of Medical Psychology.

He studies “social jet lag,” a term he coined, perhaps not surprisingly, on an airplane. But unlike the jet lag you get from shifting time zones, social jet lag is the chronic clash between what our bodies need (more sleep) and what our lives demand (being on time). And his research suggests that it’s playing havoc with our biological clocks.

In a study, published in May, Roenneberg and colleagues analyzed the sleep habits of more than 65,000 adults. Two-thirds of them suffered from social jet lag, experiencing at least a one-hour disparity between how long they slept on workdays and weekends.

The researchers also found that, over the past decade, people have been going to bed later but still getting up at the same time, losing about 40 minutes of sleep on workdays. They are also spending less time outside, which could account for why their circadian rhythms have become so late.

Previous studies have linked sleep deprivation with excessive weight, but Roenneberg’s team concludes that it isn’t just how much sleep people get that matters—it’s how much they mess with their internal clocks. For every hour of social jet lag accrued, the risk of being overweight or obese rises by about 33 percent. Obesity results from a host of influences, but Roenneberg says “one contributing factor is not living according to your biological temporal needs.” No one knows the precise mechanism, but other studies suggest that lack of sleep causes higher secretions of ghrelin, the appetite hormone, and a reduction of leptin, the satiety hormone.
( From : Kalb, C. "Social Jet Lag." TheSmithsonian. Print. 1/2013)

You can tell the nice ones with some actual real compassion for humanity from the not so nice ones though (in any profession)...just as soon as they open their mouths--BIG difference in what comes out of them (respectively)!
