    the post where my kid said hi to you isn’t showing it posted on mine, is it on yours?

    Nope! I have had that happen many time over the past weeks saying already posted duplicate or whatever but it is nowhere to be found! Plus still have to copy and post numerous times to get it to go. Sometimes going to the previous page and posting works.

    I’m surprised this hasn’t been a topic, or, has it ?

    Fitch warns U.S. risks losing AAA debt rating

    USA Today

    U.S. lawmakers must make credible progress this year on a long-term deficit-reduction strategy or risk losing Fitch Ratings’ top AAA grade on U.S. government debt, Fitch warned Wednesday.

    Fitch said it would not immediately cut its rating if Congress fails to stop $85 billion in automatic spending cuts from taking effect Friday, or even if there’s a partial government shutdown later.

    Fitch said the USA’s aging population means entitlement reform — reining in the costs of Medicare and Social Security — will be needed to contain spending.

    Red Lobster

    She said tell him I love him :-)

    By the way heres one from the Science books, a young boy last year figured a mathmatical formula that stated that if the big bang happened the way they say it did with the temps it happened with then Carbon would not have had time to form yet.

    Just read where a number of Scientist are stating to rething the way the big bang happened, and they also are trying to figure out how the stars in the universe are older than the universe they sit in.

    I love Science, with every discovery a billion new questions come up :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    to rething


  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox FAKE News is distorting again: avoiding saying the right wing bags in the House will not address tax loopholes for millionaires and billionaires’ private jets and yachts………while complaining about Holder…..

  • Mikey O

    Just come across the river Maryland Gun MFR. You will be welcome in Virginia.:)

  • usa8888

    Please note (all right wingers): the far right was responsible for the prvious debt rating drop for the US due to their lack of knowledge of economics. And they are responsible for the drag on the economy due to the sequester…..

  • Ratboy

    @ Coffee Steve
    I love Science, with every discovery a billion new questions come up

    Dont you find it interesting that with all the different changes in theory and guesses and studies and all the questions, the one thing that seems to hold the firmest is …………………………….the Bible!!!

    Well that will start some crap around here but like you all know, I calls em as I sees em!
