  1. He and Lott were connected at the hip when they held the reigns of power. There is a new law going into effect that prohibits lobbying for two years after you leave office. By bailing out now, they only have to cool their heels for one year. K Street, here come Laurel and Hardy!
  2. out of a can they always suck even lousy home made are better than store bought- most are mediocre i made a batch over the weekend- not my best, but pretty good anybody who has written them off should give them a try kind of like grits i think
  3. The EPA mandated that expanding coal fired power plants install modern stack scrubbers to clean some of the nasties out of the filthy smoke they spew They are no longer required to do that-they can expand the old plants to their heart's content now- and those old plants are quite profitable, make no mistake-the notes are all paid of and soft coal is cheaper than dirt What the hell, penguins already know how to swim, and anybody who is poor enough or stupid enough to live downwind from a power plant deserves to die a slow, painful, premature death The stricter emissions standards apply only to those plants still on the drawing board or over a year out from breaking ground What the hell is the matter with that? It's not like the administration recently woke up in the morning and decided that coal plants were dirty So now a victory for the power companies and a qualified victory for common sense down the road is now a "cap and trade" issue Whoever wrote that article should do a little research on status quo ante-the requirement to clean stack emissions that was recently waived by the Obama administration has literally been on the books for decades Not that the power companies ever went meekly along with it- they always filed for a waiver when they expanded plant capacity If anybody's kids or grand kids end up with minimata disease from sucking in mercury fumes, then you'd whine that they aren't doing enough to stop mercury pollution
  4. little wonder why the descendants of black slaves have used religion to legitimize their resentment over they way they were, and still are, treated by the people whose ancestors once held titles to their great grandparents the way one would now hold a title for a pick-up truck not saying it is right- just saying it is a factor to this day
  5. been there a couple of times very nice but i was one of the only vehicles there with mass plates lots of folks from PA hardly any from new york try again
  6. if the dollar goes down the drain, what does anybody here consider a prudent investment to make before it does my (modest) short term portfolio is up between 35 and 40% these days but what about IRA and nest egg investments? shotgun shells? gold at $1,000 an ounce? commodity futures? anybody got any ideas?
