Campbellsville and Morehead both have colleges, excellent resources that are eager to attract for those who want to learn. Education is a very good thing.

Assad stays in power in Syria. If you read the body language when Putin sat with Obama, Putin had just whupped theshit out of Obama and didn't have another word to say. Obama was sulking and wanted to continue the discussion, but didn't have anything to say that hadn't already been shoved back into his face.
Putin is in control. Obama is powerless. It was obvious Obama wasn't even in the same class as Putin. Putin plays in the NFL, and Obama is a high school football player.
In the arms limitation negotiations, Russia kicked the everloving shitout of the US.
In the Syria discussion, Russia kicked the everloving shitout of the US.
As long as Obama is the president, Russia the world will kick the everloving shitout of the US.
In reality, the rest of the G20 nations just pretended Obama didn't exist. He's that insignificant.

Nothing in the Constitution allows for the existence of the Departments of Education, Commerce and Energy (to name a few), government-sponsored entities such as Fannie Mae ( FNM - news - people ) and Freddie Mac ( FRE - news - people ), or ineffective bureaucracies such as the SEC and the FDA. Obamacare is just one of the more recent examples.
The Washington Times, documents federal spending that includes $2.6 million for the training of "Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly on the job," $3.9 million for the SEC to rearrange "desks and offices at its Washington headquarters" and nearly $1 million for the shipping of "two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas," along with the improper use of government credit cards for the purchase of goods including "lingerie, iPods, XBoxes, jewelry, Internet dating services and Hawaiian vacations."
So, for the sake of a real discussion that I am apparently not having...want to chime in on your thoughts about these things?
I'll be more than happy to chime in. If you are getting your info from the "washington times" you may as well be promoting the lies of the "moonies". How can you wingnuts are so damn stupid as to believe the tripe from outfits like that? May as well quote from the other bastions of bullshit, like the world nut daily, drudge, faux, rupert lies inc., and hate radio. And hey, don't miss the next springer show. That's right up your alley.

<quoted text>You left out there is nothing in the Constitution about having Medicare, Social Security, building interstate highways, dams to control flooding and provide power or laws to protect us from companies dumping waste into rivers. I'm glad you and Ron Paul aren't running the nation. People would be working for .30 cents an hour just like in China. Nothing in the Constitution against that either.
There is no FEDERAL authority for medicare, social security-though any state could implement those programs if they so chose. The Constitution allows the states to do that which the Federal gov't can not. California is an example of a lefties dream...of course it's bankrupt, but hey, there's plenty of government provided goodies out that way.

Interstate highways could actually fall under the authority to create post roads, which is in the Constitution.

Dams to control flooding, would fall under "public use" and the 5th amendment. Though the eminent domain power has been abused more than most-the term public use has been stretched to justify taking private property from on individual and giving it to another private individual. Such as private homes being taken through eminent domain and given to a private developer, b/c the new mall would generate more tax revenue "for the public good". b/s

Companies that dump pollution into rivers are violating your private property rights since their pollution affects your health, the value of your land, etc, etc. If it crosses state lines, then the Feds have the ability to enforce the laws, if within a single state, then it's the states responsibility to regulate it.

$0.30 an hour wage. Bull, the market would set the wage and benefits based on what the going rate for labor is. There's enough studies out that show that minimum wage laws actually hurt those it's intended to help. Every time minimum wage rises, those who work for minimum wage often find their hours cuts, lost jobs or a reduction in other forms of compensation.

That was an embarrassing presentation, certainly not the best way to define your demeanor. I’ve showered you with meaningful substance and you consistently failed to recognize it. Your agenda is to fail thusly and only react reflexively in direct opposition with an apparently endless stream of ridiculous challenges.
If you want meaningful content, you will need to open your mind to new ideas and think for yourself rather than just being oppositional to those who can and do. Seriously, seek a college education. It will make you more capable. formal education does not tend to people stupid, which is only a myth espoused by people who feel inferior to those who are better educated and equipped to solve problems.
It would be futile to expend further effort for you, WakeUp, but I do wish you well and hope you will choose to elevate yourself.
Darryl, you have have said nothing of substance. Just like your quote above. You make assertions about the powers and authority of the government based on the Constitution, and then when asked to actually submit any sort of argument in defense of that position, you revert to an argument along the lines of: "think for yourself" "go to college to be educated" and "open your mind to new ideas".

In a nutshell, you've said I, and those with similar positions, are wrong. When asked to "educate" us on how we're wrong, you hide behind your "education" as that somehow being proof of the superiority of your position w/out having to actually make any argument at all.

Perhaps you should see if they'll give you a refund on your degree? Or maybe take a couple of supplemental summer classes, something that has "critical thinking" in the class title would be a start.

So, attacking the messenger b/c you can't actually defend against what the Washington Times is reporting.

"$2.6 million for the training of "Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly on the job," $3.9 million for the SEC to rearrange "desks and offices at its Washington headquarters" and nearly $1 million for the shipping of "two 19-cent washers from South Carolina to Texas," along with the improper use of government credit cards for the purchase of goods including "lingerie, iPods, XBoxes, jewelry, Internet dating services and Hawaiian vacations."

It should be pretty easy to show that this spending never took place, but since they've got the documents...what are you going to do? So that it was all made up? Fabricated? Now you're starting to sound like a birther....

So you say you love freedom, but did you protest when George W. Bush repealed habeas corpus and posse comitatus, rights first guaranteed by the Magna Carta in 1215.
You say you’re in favor of smaller government, but you never protested when Gdub expanded it. Or when G. H.W. Bush expanded it. Or when Ronnie Reagan expanded it. Or when Nixon expanded it. Or when Eisenhower expanded it.
You say you’re in favor of democracy, but when Gdub was selected by the five members of the Supreme Court (installed by Republican presidents), one of them Dick Cheney’s close personal friend, you never protested.
You say you’re in favor of openness in government, but you never protested when Dick Cheney set the nation’s energy policy in secret in collaboration with BP, Exxon/Mobil, Halliburton, and the nation’s wealthiest energy companies, or when Cheney and his friends engineered the energy crisis in California and profited hugely.
You say you’re patriots, but you never protested when Cheney ordered the “outing” of a covert CIA agent during a time of war — which U.S. law considers treason. You never protested when the Bush administration tacitly admitted that Gdub was AWOL during a time of war which U.S. law considers a felony.
You never protested when Dubya let Osama escape, when the WMDs turned out to be nonexistent, when the link between Osama and Saddam turned out to be a lie.
You say you believe in human dignity, but you never protested when you found out we were torturing people, some of whom were innocent of any crime.
You say you’re in favor of fiscal restraint, but you never protested when George W. Bush took a budget surplus and a national debt of $5.7 trillion to a gigantic deficit and a national debt of more than $9 trillion.
You say you share the values of the Founders, but you never protested when you found out the Republican government was illegally wiretapping American citizens.
None of this made you angry; none of this frightened you. But you finally got angry when your lawfully elected representatives decided that all Americans deserve the right to see a doctor if they’re sick.
I need to get some of that health care you don’t want me to have – you make me sick!
Give it up, Frank. It ain't working for Obama, and it ain't workin' for you either, but have a nice day, anyway, my friend!

The Volt only exists thanks to government subsidies. No one wants the thing, and taxpayer money is going much farther than a simple $7,500 a car.
James Hohman at Michigan’s Mackinac Center has added up the numbers at the supply end and found the public subsidy for the Volt amounts to a $3 billion, putting the public subsidy per car at a whopping $250,000 per car. http://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/16...
The figure looks at total state and federal assistance offered for the development and production of the Chevy Volt. His analysis included 18 government deals that included loans, rebates, grants and tax credits. For example, the Department of Energy awarded a $105.9 million grant to the GM Brownstown plant that assembles the batteries.
The amount of government assistance does not include the fact that General Motors is currently 26 percent owned by the federal government.
Depending on what state, and which other tax incentives, government "loans" that can be used, the Volt is subsidized at roughly $50,000 to $250,000 per car since they've only "sold" approximately 6,000 vehicles.
Oh fur chrissake, just as expected some brainless f-ing wingnuz idiot can’t help himself posting the uber stupid article that has been going around the web for the delight of the right-wingers. Unfortunately it is complete bunk lacking any and all sense of logic. The author of the study, the objective being the rightwing slander of the Volt, added the known state and federal incentives that have been offered and divided by the number of Volts sold – duh! If you divide this $1.5 billion "investment" over 60 million cars over the next 25+ years instead of the 6,000 made over the last year, or the 60,000 to be made next year, the alleged government subsidy comes to $25 per car – some study eh?

Here is the point: Why divide whatever amount --$1.5 billion or otherwise -- by the number of Chevrolet Volts sold to date? If he had done this study one year from now, when we could be looking at 60,000 Volts made, as GM repeatedly has promised, the headline number would be $25,000 per car -- not $250,000. You would divide the $1.5 billion by 60,000 instead of 6,000.
But why stop at a year from now? This investment in automotive propulsion technology is meant to be refined and influence generations of cars for decades. Some part of GM's Voltec architecture and techniques will drive sales of approximately 60 million cars over the next 25 years or so, in any reasonable estimation.
Thus, if you divide this $1.5 billion "investment" over 60 million cars over the next 25+ years instead of the 6,000 made over the last year, or the 60,000 to be made next year, the alleged government subsidy comes to $25 per car, or what you will pay for two movie tickets in Manhattan, popcorn excluded. That's very different from the nasty $250,000 per Volt headline floating all over the Internet.

Executive privilege "CUTS BOTH WAYS".!
Why has executive privilege been such a contentious issue?
Because it is at the fulcrum of a very delicate balancing act — between a president's right to candid advice and Congress' right to information. Also, executive privilege is a power that political parties tend to support when they control the White House, but abhor when they're out of power. For that reason, neither party is eager for a definitive ruling from the Supreme Court. For its part, the high court seems to be in no hurry to wade into such contentious constitutional waters.
BTW...guess who was the first President to invoke EP?
The Father of our nation...George Washington!!!!

In some states in the US, if there’s an accident involving an electric or hybrid car, emergency first responders are required to stay away from the vehicle until a specially-trained first responder arrives. The risk of electrocution for regular emergency personnel is deemed unacceptable.

Does the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) factor this into car safety standards? I doubt it.

Hope your not hurt seriously, You could die before they arrive!!!
