Mailman files complaint after allegedly seeing resident ‘buck naked and masturbating’ outside Knox home
http://bangordailynews.com/2013/09/23/news/mi...
Neither snow nor rain has kept him from delivering the mail, but what the postman saw Friday outside a rural Knox home gave him pause. And caused him to call the police....

I feel really bad for the Republicans who don't share that hateful Tea Bagger mentality of destroy the USA.

They'll all be taking some major heat come next election.

All it does is encourage the illegals to come here. It's just a loophole that needs to be stopped. If they were deported right on the spot, the kid wouldn't know the difference anyway.
"The practice of renouncing U.S. citizenship, though still extremely rare, is becoming more common: 1,781 Americans did it in 2011. That's up 16% from 2010 and is nearly eight times the number who expatriated in 2008, according to the U.S. Treasury."

Fck em but never let them set foot on our soil again unless heading to a jail cell..

Prove the lie, Rose..
NTR was married 3 times and had a kid or two with each marriage..
NTR was divorced 3 times.
Her first supposedly beat her.
Her second prescribed her meds till he realized she was too high maintenance for his lifestyle.
Her third found another woman who understood him and his needs better than what NTR could deliver...
There is no lie and YOU use to ream her in the past when you weren't so much as friends as you are now.. Your best reaming of her which remains appalling to this day is all the racial slurs you said about her hubby and your detailed graphics on how she should have sex with him all the way to where he could put his black Rooster....
Now, MYOFB.....
You're pathetic.

How about YOU mind your own business, you meddlesome old fart and gossip girl. And remember anything you post on the Internet becomes EVERYONE'S business, you hypocrite. YOUR words, so you post your lies, people have the right to correct them.

By the way, liar you have that ONE remark I made to NTR completely wrong, and you and everyone else knows what prompted that exchange between us. But we long ago made amends and forgave one another like two mature women.

Only a petty, small-minded wuss like you resurrects that incident every chance you get. You really have no life of your own, GR. You never leave Topix no matter how many "vacations" you claim to go on. You meddle and snoop and stalk posters like the degenerate you are because you're nothing but a lonely, miserable person, and you need your like-minded scumbag friends here to make you feel good about yourself.

What a joke you are. LMAO!

Maybe the majority of the people in your mobile home, but the majority of Americans in America don't even have a clue that there is a government shutdown right now and when told about it they just laugh and say, "What?" If you can keep their attention on the subject long enough to try to explain what a government shutdown is they might ask a question like: "Is that like a union strike?".

Don't say "the majority of American people" when it's not true. It makes you seem stupid to other people.

Well, the joke in the White House has really done it now. His refusal to talk and compromise has shown what a "F"ing jerk he and Harry Reid really are. The only people who can't see that they have purposely shut down the govt. out of spite, are idiots that drank the Kool-Aid, and there is NO HOPE for them.

GOP Succeeds in Shutting Down Government -- Fails to Stop ObamaCare
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-creamer/...
After it was proposed five years ago, pundits and political commentators declared Obamacare dead on dozens of occasions. It was assailed in television commercials supported by the insurance industry. Supportive members of Congress were pummeled by tea party extremists financed by right-wing billionaires like the Koch brothers.
ACA don't start till the first of the year.. Hell with all the computer glitches maybe not even then..

Which lawmakers will refuse their pay during the shutdown?
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-poli...
Several lawmakers have already said that they plan to donate or refuse compensation earned over the course of the impasse. Here's a running tally that we will continue updating through the day:

Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif): He will decline his pay because "Congress should lead by example and put people before politics,” he said in a statement.“If Congress can’t do its job and put the American people first, then they certainly shouldn’t get paid during a crisis that they are causing. We must stop the finger pointing, start acting like adults, and make Washington work for the people again.”

Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.): "No small business would pay someone who refuses to do their job,” Buchanan said in a statement Tuesday.“So why should Senators or House members be paid for failing to fulfill one of their most basic responsibilities? They shouldn’t.”

When you pool all the healthy folks with a few higher risk folks you get the premiums you talk about. I have no choice in the matter that is the shame. I am healthy, active, eat correctly, and stay away from shakey lifestyles, now pool me and 100 other people like me together with one who doesn't care then take an average cost for health care for all 101 you get obamacare. 100 healthy folks sharing the wealth to cover the couch potatoes behind. The high risk love this but it is still unfair to me. Let the Americian people vote on it in the polls like we elect the rest, if it passes I will comply. Oh yea my insurance rates have went up due to obamacare, my wife is a nurse her hours have been cut to thirty hours a week due to medicare cuts stemming from obamacare, 50 of her coworkers at the hospital have been laid off. Obamacare makes for a police state, no thanks.
Yes, well, I'd like to have had a "vote" about a lot of things, but that's not the way Congress works - as you already know. Nevertheless, the President was re-elected, and the American voting public indicated by popular vote that they preferred his ideas over those of the GOP.

How many times must we go over this? It's no more unfair than any other legislation on which American voters are not included in the decision making process aside from electing a representative to cast a vote on their behalves.

"No thanks" doesn't make any difference. You'll either get with the program or pay for non-participation. If your wife is a nurse, regardless of your position (work or retired), you're likely covered as well. So, this is all moot where you're concerned.

Yes, I understand your being upset that health insurance will cost you more in the SHORT TERM than it otherwise would, but I don't think would have been the case without the ACA or similar program being instituted to keep health care costs from rising faster than inflation as it has done. You'd be paying more one way or another.

It's like taking social security early. There are actuarial studies that demonstrate when it the best time to maximize your return. In the case of most women, the age is 63 - not 65-66 - that would provide you the "maximum benefit". In the case of health care under the ACA, you will pay more now, but your "maximum benefit" is less easily seen, but no less valuable.

That said, I still believe we can make this program a lot better, and that is where the focus should be - not in blocking a law from going into effect and throwing everybody in America under the bus by jeopardizing our fragile economy.

What Would the Founders Think of Defunding Obamacare?
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bruce-thornton/w...
We should remember that the Founders’ distrust of human nature extended also to elites that monopolized power, as well as to the masses. Hence “elites” in the government had to be “checked and balanced” as much as the masses. Against those continuing to argue for giving the Senate the power of the purse, George Mason countered,“An aristocratic body, like the screw in mechanics, working its way by slow degrees, and holding fast whatever it gains, should ever be suspected of an encroaching tendency.––The purse strings should never be put into its hands.” As a compromise to placate the smaller states, the Senate was given the power to add amendments to the money bills originating in the House.

Are we back to that again?

I don't live in a mobile home and the same site you morons got that information from has an entire family I have never lived with at the same address.

You're starting to sound desperate now.

Anyway, in the interest of diplomacy, what phrase would prefer I use when I'm pointing out that most people are blaming the republicans for this mess?
