    @Doug Z, A few Christmas’s ago my son, asked for a gold coin. Not a collector coin, just a coin. It cost me $80 for one the size of a dime. It’s now worth $420. I should have gotten more gold back then.

    Let’s hope it don’t adjust down. :eek:

    @d.d. My brother is safe and sound. He has recently moved to Troy MI. and I am not sure if he uses I-75 where the huge pile up occurred. Cathy is near there, but Rat says he’s in south western area, so he would be a ways off from that Interstate.

    As far as my twin “lurks” goes, you will have to tell me how a member of your family does that so I can compare and get back to ya.

    Thanks for your concern.

    The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law. Officials said the administration tried to mitigate the impact. Families that can’t get coverage because of the glitch will not face a tax penalty for remaining uninsured, the IRS rules said.

    That’s a big No No! Taxes have to be applied equally.

  • Ratboy

    Just another pile of BS from the King!!! here is how you can tell if Obama is fibbin, his lips are movin or Jay Carneys STOP movin! :lol:

    If Obama BS was gold we would have a HUGE surplus instead of the huge debt he has run up!!!

    Kerry: Obama Offered Me the Job a Week Before Susan Rice Pulled Out

    White House refuses to comment.

    John Kerry says that President Obama offered him the secretary of state job a week before Susan Rice publicly pulled out of the running for the job.

    “He called me, actually a week before Susan got out of the thing,” Kerry tells the Boston Globe. “He called me and said, ‘You’re my choice. I want you to do this.’ He asked me to keep it quiet. I did. I sat on it.”

    At the time, Rice pulling out of the running for the top State Department job suggested that the position had simply fallen to Kerry, who had been in a neck-and-neck competition for the job. Now it seems that the White House allowed Susan Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, to publicly save face by publicly withdrawing from a job that was never going to be offered to her in the first place.

    Rice had come under fire for misleading the American public about what really happened in the terror attack against Americans on September 11 in Benghazi, Libya.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney refused to comment on the ordeal at today’s press briefing

    Pretty funny! But I got to ask, does this make LENO a news guy too like Stewart and Colbert??? jus askin :twisted:

    Leno Turns Obama-Clinton 60 Minutes Segment Into Cialis Commercial

    As NewsBusters reported, CBS’s 60 Minutes did an absolutely gushing and fawning segment with President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton this past Sunday.

    It was so bad that Jay Leno and Company turned it into a Cialis commercial on NBC’s Tonight Show Thursday

    NBC News’ Kristen Welker reported via Twitter Friday afternoon that “Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan will announce his resignation today according to multiple sources.”

    Sullivan has overseen the Secret Service since 2006 and was its director during the agency’s high-profile prostitution scandal last year.
    Energy Secretary Steven Chu resigns; led green energy push

    WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who won a Nobel Prize in physics but came under questioning for his handling of a solar energy loan, is stepping down.

    Chu offered his resignation to President Barack Obama in a letter Friday. He said he will stay on at least until the end of February and may stay until a successor is confirmed.

    Nope you can thank Team Obama for that! He allowed those kind of terms in the deal with GM and then Ford does what is called Patterened Barganing. That way the ford guys and girls get the same as the others.

    Over the years I was involved with many negotiations that delt with bonus. We always tried to tie it to performance but now it is tied to profitability but not overal profitability in many cases. I am not sure about this one but it is probobly tied to North American Profits.
