  • d.d.

    A longer implementation time could have helped the ACA ,but, only if both Parties had voted for it. The Dems, as thing now stand, have 0 cover.


    I just posted this on another. I might as well park it here, too.


    This story has haunted me since the grand jury indictment, not because of just the late term abo rtions, but, more because of the brutality , 3rd world lack of cleanliness (the word sterile is non existent) , greed , racism , lack of oversight , poverty, & , just plain ideological politics.

    There were 2 facts I didn’t know that were horrific.

    1. The abo rtions were performed 10 AM until midnight.

    2. Some parts of fe tuses were ground up in the garbage disposal .

    There is no humanity in this story by anyone other than a few pro life activists .

    Our 4th Estate is no longer doing its job, &, deserves the disrespect heaped upon it.

    Why must it be the every day citizens that have to SHOVE a newsman to do his/her job ?

    Good morning Coffee Steve Investors Bail As Price Collapses…
    ‘PANIC IS EVERYWHERE Gold is collapsing.

    Panic for the normal person would be stock market fall, weak dollar, bonds and interest rates going up and gold soaring. Gold price drop is probable hurting the fats cats and the oil sheik, but they may hurts us if the oil sheik’s decide they need to make up the lost, cut oil production to raise the price of gas. Hopefully some of the old gold/silver coin prices will start to fall too :).

    Looks like North Koreans not shooting off the missle today, thought they would in celbration of His grandfathers birthday. Maybe China say something to them.

    Morning all

    Great news that usnretx2 has dropped anchor in the great state of Texas.

    Now if he will just stay put and see what hot dry weather is all about.

    I’ll bet he’s been out looking for water to put his little dingy in.

    Great area for BBQ tho.

    Biofuels: ‘Irrational’ and ‘worse than fossil fuels’

    Matt McGrath, Environment correspondent, BBC News

    The UK’s “irrational” use of biofuels will cost motorists around £460 million over the next 12 months, a think tank says.

    A report by Chatham House says the growing reliance on sustainable liquid fuels will also increase food prices.

    The author says that biodiesel made from vegetable oil was worse for the climate than fossil fuels.

    Under EU law, biofuels are set to make up 5% of the UK’s transport fuel from today.

    Since 2008, the UK has required fuel suppliers to add a growing proportion of sustainable materials into the petrol and diesel they supply. These biofuels are mainly ethanol distilled from corn and biodiesel made from rapeseed, used cooking oil and tallow.

    Deep fried fuel

    But research carried out for Chatham House says that reaching the 5% level means that UK motorists will have to pay an extra £460m a year because of the higher cost of fuel at the pump and from filling up more often as biofuels have a lower energy content.

    The report say that if the UK is to meet its obligations to EU energy targets the cost to motorists is likely to rise to £1.3bn per annum by 2020.

    Jeff you wrote this.

    But all the Wall Street 1%, and billionaires are Democrats that gave to Obama, and the DNC. Obama went to the Getty Mansion , big oil for a fund raiser.

    Kim ding dong dung dong ding ding, has been missing for 2 weeks, maybe he’s pulling a Howard Hughes routine on us :-)

  • Jeff

    Because its snowing at Chrisceezz house it proves all the science wrong. I’m sure Al Gore can make better use of a shovel when it comes to you.

    Lets see what she says when/if there are major fires in her state again this summer. But even then, you can’t teach or reason with delusion.

    John Kerry: US open to ‘Authentic and credible ‘North Korea negotiations

    Dear Mr. Kerry, please make a note of this

    North Korea doesn’t care about your talks, they never have, and never will, they flat just don’t care, they will continue to do whatever they wish, and whenever they wish.

    The past 4 administrations have talked, and talked, and made agreements which they never had any intentions of keeping and never have and never will.

    Thank You sir for your time.

  • ninja

    My post never went trough. Testing

  • Coffee Steve

    Dow Jones goes minus 163 huh?

    Question is, why? The Gold market has been overpriced ever since I sold all mine. This should not be a sole reason for a market fall. Makes you wonder if they are waking up to reality huh?

    Wait till Wednesday when the EU gives out its projections :shock:

    Something is wrong. He should be easy to spot, being the only well-fed Korean in the northern part of the peninsula.

  • Coffee Steve


    That’s the reason he is missing, he is in the room with all the food :-)
