Suggest that you nix the surprise party. One was held for a close friend; she was clearly surprisedRead More but not in a good way. Later she told me that the person who made the guest list had included a few who were not her current friends and some good friends were not invited. She would have been prepared to dress nicely and would have enjoyed the anticipation.

Jeff - you really believe that America is "throwing a tantrum" as you term it overRead More Russia's behavior? I am sorry but Putin's behavior is unconscionable. Russian nationalism of this type, reminds me of other fascists. And, it is poised to possible start a world war. As you intimated, no one should believe Russia's incarceration rate - not to mention their unknown execution rate. If our laws regarding drugs are antiquated we can adjust our thinking. If we have hired private prison contractors - and it is a mistake, we can change it. I am kind of dumbfounded that you would even compare our two countries.

You know who else lost his freedumbs? Frazier Glenn Cross Jr. That's who. When Holder's federalRead More thugs ordered by Obama found out about his white Christian crusade against the Jews just like Martin Luther (Father of Protestantism) would have wanted, he was arrested. Bam! Just like that he was persecuted for being white *and* being Christian. The most demonized class in America today. But his oppression started way earlier. As we all know, he ran in the Democratic primaries for being governor of one of them limited government states, and then as a Repu___ HE WAS A LIBRUL DEMOCRAT, OK? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frazier_Glenn_Miller,_Jr.#Electoral_history) Sheesh, people make it sound like he was a Rick Perry who was also a Democrat, and one can see why he became a Republican. Because the Democrats were filled with such Crosses. ___________________________________________________ But the damage was done much earlier. He was stripped of his name and his social security number (Paging Orly Taitz, found ONE more Obama social security number!) was changed. Forcibly by the gubmint under the orders of a kangaroo court. This is a true story. A true patriot who served this great land with two tours of Vietnam in a 20 year military career (we salute ALL our troops) and the thanks he gets is stripping of his identity? Thanks, Obama. I guess this is the CHANGE he was talking about. ___________________________________________________ http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2014/04/15/224567/kansas-shooting-suspect-had-been.html#emlnl=Morning_Newsletter

Patriot, I did not mean to offend you. Next time before dumbfounding yourself you should thinkRead More rationally and try to escape the bubble of misleading hate and half-truths that are the undercurrent of major media. If you are so patriotic/disillusioned that you think America is #1 at everything, always, then your opinion will be wisped away like momentary flatulence in any rational discussion. In the real world, people and countries make mistakes. If you are religious, remember that your book claims only God is perfect. As for my statement about both Russia and USA seemingly being the only countries with the capability desire to invade and occupy sovereign nations, I do not understand your outrage. If anything that situation is more understandable than our Iraq occupation, since Crimea largely identifies with their Russian heritage, hence why the country was being pulled apart when the western portion wanted to ally themselves more with the EU, while the eastern wanted closer Russian ties. This does not make it right, or legitimize what Russia is doing any more than our rationalizations legitimize our mistakes. Nothing about my statement was untrue, you just convinced yourself you are offended because you refuse to explore outside of the box you have barricaded your mind inside.

According to Feb 2013 article of Forbes the number of regulations affecting small businesses hasRead More grown to over 800 regulations. Look at this example: .........1 EMPLOYEE Fair Labor Standards Act (overtime and minimum wage [27 percent minimum wage increase since 1990]) Social Security matching and deposits Medicare, Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) Military Selective Service Act (90 days leave for reservists; rehiring of discharged veterans) Equal Pay Act (no sex discrimination in wages) Immigration Reform Act (eligibility must be documented) Federal Unemployment Tax Act (unemployment compensation) Employee Retirement Income Security Act (standards for pension and benefit plans) Occupational Safety and Health Act Polygraph Protection Act ...............4 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS Immigration Reform Act (no discrimination with regard to national origin, citizenship, or intention to obtain citizenship) ..................15 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS Civil Rights Act Title VII (no discrimination with regard to race, color, national origin, religion, or sex; pregnancy-related protections; record keeping) Americans with Disabilities Act (no discrimination, reasonable accommodations) ................20 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS Age Discrimination Act (no discrimination on the basis of age against those 40 and older) Older Worker Benefit Protection Act (benefits for older workers must be commensurate with younger workers) Consolidation Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) (continuation of medical benefits for up to 18 months upon termination).............. 25 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS Health Maintenance Organization Act (HMO Option required) Veterans’ Reemployment Act (reemployment for persons returning from active, reserve, or National Guard duty) ................50 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS Family and Medical Leave Act (12 weeks unpaid leave or care for newborn or ill family member) ........................100 EMPLOYEES: ALL THE ABOVE, PLUS WARN Act (60-days written plant closing notice)—Civil Rights Act (annual EEO-1 form).................And if that does not make you frustrated look at the compilation from Wayne Crews: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AiYyxLrbT19_dEUtSExGQWE4empmSjhIc1BnY3p0eHc&output=html from "The Regulatory Plan and Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions," Federal Register, various years' editions; and from online edition at www.reginfo.gov. -----------------Environmental Protection Agency 73------------Federal Communications Commission 78 ---------------------Dept. of Health & Human Services 100

also, i hear we american citizens are not able to buy land in China, although the reverse is true.

…… i mean that one doesn't have to be US citizen to buy land in the US.
Fortified- AKA Carlos Danger April 12, 2014 at 10:39 pm
I think you can buy in China, with restrictions. I have heard lately that some of the companies thatRead More went to China for cheap labor are coming back. The cost of doing business there is rising, not just by labor, but the escalating pay-offs to officials and others. The bull market in Chinese pay-offs may have peaked. I Don't really know....just been hearing it.
