    It may be a very long 10 days after the election before we know guys…

    *Ohio Voting Count ‘Nightmare’ Looms

    Anyone who is sent an absentee ballot — including those who do not complete it and mail it in — and later shows up at the polls on Election Day to cast their ballot in person will be instructed to instead complete a provisional ballot.

    And under Ohio election law, provisional ballots cannot be opened until 10 days after an election.

    **Now the question is do they go ahead and announce a winner? if its razor close in Ohio do they Wait?

    @Coffee Steve

    The USG knew there is a problem back in Feb. Below is their report


  • Coffee Steve

    Nearly 50% of the refining capacity on the East Coast has either shut down or may shut down within the next few months

    You know USN; if memory serves me right John Davison Rockefeller (Standard Oil Company in the late 1800’s) used a system to shut them down (refineries) in his attempt get back at the railroads for rasing transportation prices.

    ometimes I wonder if Uncle Sam isn’t doing the same thing with regulations.

    It would increase cost and cut supplies and force a shortage that the Government could control.

    I know, I know, maybe a wild imagination. But at times that kind of questioning lead to some really good and accurate stories as well.

    GREAT .pdf USN

    I WILL take the time later to read those 32 pages.

    How is it, you and I and others on here find things that the press should cover, yet they never do?

  • Coffee Steve


    By the way Rockefeller was successful in just about running the railroads out. He ruined Old Vanderbuilt in the process

  • Coffee Steve

    Maybe a Nor-Easter Election day for the North East? Oh Lord! Those people have been through enough

  • Coffee Steve

    Be back later tonight, wife wants to play :twisted:

  • usnretiredx2

    I have been screaming about the refineries being slowly closed down, due to new EPA requirement, to not cost effective to upgrade for the blend requirements or notcost effect to be able to refine the cheaper, heavier types of oil that are increasingly in supply from Canada’s oil sands, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and elsewhere.

    To build a new one is almost as bad as trying to build a new coal power plant.

    Bubbas it will take years to be able to did ourselves out of this.

    @Coffee Steve

    Nearly 50% of the refining capacity on the East Coast has either shut down or may shut down within the next few months”

    Look at the date of that, it was April of this year. The 50% are closed now.

  • Doug Z

    Longtime African-American civil rights advocate Rev. Joseph Lowery told The Daily Caller that he was joking when he told a get-out-the-vote event that all whites will go to hell.

    Obama’s inauguration reverend says anti-white slam was a jokeems, Libs , racist

    right Mark, Jeff, Matthew

    @Coffee Steve

    Here is a cut and paste from the EIA.Gov report

    4.3.3 Supply-Demand Balance and Alternative Sources of Supply
    It is uncertain how these supply sources will meet demand if the Sunoco Philadelphia refinery closes. Table 4 captures the volumes of gasoline that might need to be replaced in the event that the the refinery is actually idled.

    It is estimated that if the Sunoco Philadelphia refinery closes in July 2012, adding to the shutdowns of refineries that have already been implemented, the Northeast will be short 160,000 bbl/d of gasoline in 2012 and 240,000 bbl/d of gasoline in 2013 in addition to historical levels of supply. However, because the estimates are based on EIA consumption forecasts, any deviation in actual consumption from the forecasts will increase or decrease the need for additional products by a corresponding amount. In 2012, the majority of this supply gap would begin in July, when EIA assumes that the Sunoco Philadelphia refinery will be idled. Because the data above are annual averages, it is likely that if the Sunoco Philadelphia refinery is idled in July, the requirements in the second half of 2012 will be closer to the 240,000 bbl/d level shown for 2013. Most of this supply requirement will be needed throughout Pennsylvania and western New York, the areas which are directly supplied by the Philadelphia-area refineries. However, with some volumes from the Philadelphia-area refineries going to New York Harbor, and the loss of imports from the U.S. Virgin Islands, there will be some additional supply needs throughout the Northeast.

    this is for you dd since you live close to east tenn.

    From the Congressional Research Service, the non-partisan research office for Congress.
    “The results of the analysis suggest that changes over the past 65 years in the top marginal tax rate and the top capital gains tax rate do not appear correlated with economic growth. The reduction in the top tax rates appears to be uncorrelated with saving, investment, and productivity growth. The top tax rates appear to have little or no relation to the size of the economic pie.
    However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution. As measured by IRS data, the share of income accruing to the top 0.1% of U.S. families increased from 4.2% in 1945 to 12.3% by 2007 before falling to 9.2% due to the 2007-2009 recession. At the same time, the average tax rate paid by the top 0.1% fell from over 50% in 1945 to about 25% in 2009. Tax policy could have a relation to how the economic pie is sliced—lower top tax rates may be associated with greater income disparities.”

    I’ve been a little wild lately. I really get into this campaign stuff. Took a day off from it.

    Hey Dave, no hard feelings man. Just for the record I am little crazy but not sick.

    Who told Susan Rice to go on all those Sunday shows 5 days after the attack in Libya to blame the video?

    Sorry I couldn’t help myself.

    O. kissed a few babies in New Jersey to help his re-election. The big wet one Christe laid on him was hard to watch. Geez, Chris if Romney loses are you thinking about running in 2016. You better run as a Democrat!
