    A "fine" example of the "Looters"...

    Veterans Nationwide Hit By Food Stamp Cuts, 5,000 Active Military Families Also Hurt By Benefit Rollback I don't know which is more disturbing; that we pay the people who lay their lives down for our nation so little that they need food stamps, or that we just told those same defenders of our...

    1st obamacare fine assessed....

    A guy is actually able to navigate the HHS Obamacare website. He completes his registration, enters in all the information, reviews his options to select coverage, sees the price and then declines to accept. Essentially he almost enrolls but then chooses to do further research and find if...

    Another fine, upstanding Republican demonstrating his sense of equivalency

    So, according to Stacy Campfield, state Senator from Tennessee, homosexuality is comparable to heroin use.: Campfield’s proposed law would prohibit pre-K through eight-grade students from being taught any material that was “inconsistent with natural human reproduction,” such as...

    BP to pay largest corporate fine in American history -- $4.5 billion -- for Deepwater

    Well, now we're getting somewhere because in addition to these penalties, BP agreed to plead guilty to a dozen federal felony charges. Unfortunately, in the grand scheme of things, this is like a really bad shaving-cut for BP, because they still clear $25 billion annually in net income. To...

    America's Education System Is Fine

    After seeing some people, mostly Europeans, claim that all Americans are stupid because our "education system is worse than North Korea's" and making other baseless claims like that, I've decided to share my own experience with the education system of the United States. After going through...

    $11,000 fine, arrest possible for some who refuse airport scans and pat downs

    $11,000 fine, arrest possible for some who refuse airport scans and pat downs I see an effort to tank another industry and set it up for take over by the federal government, then like GM hand it over to the Chinese. The only solution left is to take Napolitano's advise, don't fly. If China...

    Old Words/Phrases that used to be fine but are now slurs

    When I grew up in the 1950's, black people were "Colored People"...& my very non-racist mother used to bring our clothes to the local "Chinaman" to be washed! Can anyone think of any others?

    Don't Fine Big Business...They'll Just Increase Prices To Pay Them!

    That always seems to be the mantra from many voters & even some members here. To me, that thinking is the same as "Keep giving your lunch money to the schoolyard bully or he'll just hit you harder tomorrow!" My attitude is......I don't care if it may cost me a bit more in the short term...

    Well, isn't this a fine how do you do?

    Obama "agnostic" on raising taxes. Hello. Did anyone seriously think Obama could put generations on the hook for this titanic deficit and NOT go back on his repeated vows to taxpayers earning less than 250K? Obama repeatedly vowed during the 2008 presidential election campaign that he...

    IRS to fine misbehavers

    Should the IRS simply enforce the laws that require one to pay income taxes or should it be used to enforce other laws, or penalize certain behaviors. If you smoke is it ok for the gov to fine you in your income taxes? If you don't buy an energy efficient washing machine should the IRS be...

    It's That's What It Takes, Fine

    What the hell is the government doing still providing housing to those people two years after the storm? Those people have more than enough time to find jobs and pay their own rent or to find new bridge underpasses.
