As it turns out, after millions of dollars and dozens of researchers, paper has two sides! At first researchers were skeptical of such unstudied claims, but after extensive scientific research with taxpayer dollars they did discover that paper, in fact, has two sides which may be utilized for printing.
Naturally, these findings have come as quite a shock to the public, who up until now, did not realize that paper had a second workable side. This news is expected to revolutionize our society, and even the planet itself may be saved.
In all, it is estimated that the federal government can save nearly $102 million annually as a result of these stunning findings.
In other news, the federal government has refused to release the cost of research involved in the paper findings. They cited national security as the chief reason for refusing to disclose the funding of this research. After being pressed on the issue, the government finally admitted that they would not disclose the cost … even if it weren’t a national security issue.
Germany called a French idea to slap “carbon tariffs” on products from countries that are not trying to cut greenhouse gases a form of “eco-imperialism” and a direct violation of WTO rules.
The issue of greenhouse tariffs has met bitter opposition from developing countries such as China and India, who count on the developed world to buy their exports as they build their economies in the face of the worst financial crisis in decades.
Matthias Machnig, Germany’s State Secretary for the Environment, told a news briefing on Friday that a French push for Europe to impose carbon tariffs on imports from countries that flout rules on carbon emissions would send the wrong signal to the international community.
For the second time this month, congressional budget analysts have dealt a blow to the Democrat’s health reform efforts, this time by saying a plan touted by the White House as crucial to paying for the bill would actually save almost no money over 10 years.
A key House chairman and moderate House Democrats on Tuesday agreed to a White House-backed proposal that would give an outside panel the power to make cuts to government-financed health care programs. White House budget director Peter Orszag declared the plan “probably the most important piece that can be added” to the House’s health care reform legislation.
But on Saturday, the Congressional Budget Office said the proposal to give an independent panel the power to keep Medicare spending in check would only save about $2 billion over 10 years- a drop in the bucket compared to the bill’s $1 trillion price tag.
Is this a big deal to you? Retarded is a good, and accurate word to describe someone who you deem to be slow. That’s actually what the word means, and has been used that way for centuries before some moron decided to make it into a slur. However, you just don’t use that word to refer to someone who is mentally challenged.
People are being too oversensitive if you use the word to refer to an average everyday person, and they get offended. That’s just stupid. When you use it to describe someone who has a mental illness … you are just being an ass. To the Democrats, in all their PC sensitivity glory, are just being asses.
If a Republican were to use the word ‘retarded’ to refer to a mentally challenged person … all hell would break loose.
Parking tickets. Lots of parking tickets. And the officer is white of course..
Obama, who attended Harvard Law School from 1988 to 1991, lived in Cambridge and apparently didn’t like the fact he was frequently hit with parking tickets.
In all, Obama received 17 tickets for parking violations, and he did not pay 15 of them until a local newspaper exposed him as a scofflaw.
According to a 2007 Associated Press story, Obama was a parking ticket deadbeat for more than a decade — and felt the need to pay the 15 outstanding parking ticketsonly as his presidential campaign began in earnest in 2007.
Here is the Associated Press story detailing Obama’s negligence:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid.
The Illinois senator shelled out $375 in January — two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign — to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.
Wow, here in Vegas they’ll tow your car if you keep getting tickets that you don’t pay for.
Here’s how common sense works: a company should not be able to dictate how a state governs itself. Even libs get that one.
Here’s how the US Constitution works: states have the right to enact their own laws.
Here’s the gray area: while Delaware is legally able to allow sports betting … they are trying to allow betting they didn’t used to allow before federal law trampled upon state’s rights.
So, the NFL is suing the state to prevent the state from allowing sports betting.
The NFL joined the three other major pro sports leagues and the NCAA in suing Delaware on Friday, seeking to block the state from implementing sports betting.
Delaware’s sports betting plan “would irreparably harm professional and amateur sports by fostering suspicion and skepticism that individual plays and final scores of games may have been influenced by factors other than honest athletic competition,” the leagues and the NCAA say in a lawsuit filed in federal district court in Delaware.
Congress banned sports betting in 1992 but grandfathered four states — Delaware, Nevada, Montana and Oregon — that already had offered it. But the lawsuit argues that Delaware’s plan to allow single-game betting would violate the legislation because the state has never previously offered single-game betting.
Under the ’92 law, the leagues and the NCAA said, a state like Delaware may only reintroduce sports betting if it had been conducted between 1976 and 1990.
The NFL, Major League Baseball, NBA, NHL and NCAA also argue that Delaware’s plan is illegal because it allows betting on all sports, going beyond the professional football betting program that constituted the state’s brief failed experiment in 1976.
Earlier this morning, Casey Hendrickson (talk show host, KXNT Las Vegas), broke the news that while Reid blamed Bush for the travel ban to Vegas and other cities … it was NOT a Bush policy. In fact, it is a federal law that was supported by Harry Reid. He voted for the bill that is being cited as the cause of the ban.
Buzz Aldrin is the baddest man on the planet for doing this. Have you ever actually listened to someone who doesn’t believe we landed on the moon? Their arguments are easily discarded with common sense, and a third grade knowledge of science.
Besides, you do not go up to a man from a generation where honor was everything, and call him a coward and liar. You deserve to have your ass handed to you punk.
