"It is of interest, as to the proponents of the Affordable Health Care Act, respecting the act’s exclaimed benefits, apparently they have read the act’s 2,200 pages and 25,000-plus pages of regulations."
For crying out loud! I coulda/shoulda stopped reading right there.

I think the newer molten salt and thorium nuclear reactor designs hold none of the risks of the older ones, burn up spent fuel of the older reactors, produce far less weapons-grade material (one of the reasons they were NOT adopted originally), and emit no greenhouse gas. They are truly fail safe.
But people will cling to their fears and hopes, and these will be supported by the oil and natural gas industries.
All it takes is a little research on our parts. Stop eating the baloney and drinking the Koolaide.

Vandenburg should be used for space launches and to house molten salt thorium reactors for area power generation.
Leave old Apel to protest. He's actually correct to do so, but the blood...yuck.

Post menopausal couples are more medically expensive than young women of child bearing age. Get over it.
If you only pay for the insurance you need, you will soon be unable to afford it.

What I saw was poor delivery and frank honesty from Obama. Very boring for the buttinies of the world. From Romney, insincerity and dishonesty, coated up with a car salesman's winning grin and hairdo.
The next two debates may be a little rougher on old Mitt. Schoolyard bully, animal abuser, liar and cult member.

I agree. Eastwood is a great man. He happens to be a true Republican, not a teabagger. Whatever he utters is worthwhile to listen to, whether you are a conservative or a progressive.
Gran Torino is not a movie about corporatists making it. It's about an aging blue collar man with preconceptions, learning at at a late age about his fellow humans, accepting them and adapting to them, and finally giving them everything he has.
Million Dollar Baby is about people at the absolute bottom of society, trying to make it out, and failing sweetly. It's not a hard message to absorb.
Eastwood, at least, understands life at its most basic. Unlike some people.

I love all of his stuff. And, I enjoyed watching him at the RNC.
It was a lot more fun than watching the other idiots at the RNC and the DNC.
