I actually like Hllary's idea on funding college. Lets start wtih a 50% srucharge tax on Buffett, Brin, Zuckerberg, Soros, Steyer, Blinkfein, et. al. That should get the $350 billion into a nice investment endownment that we'll even let GS and JPM manage. Do they all agree?

jane, Why would Gowdy's hands be tied by Senate rules? He is in the House.

Who's SQ? Ah, SD is at 1:37. And I agree especially with crowdfunding it. I be willing to pay for one of Porch's rail car one way.

Kygios is the same guy who decided not to return Patrick Gasquet's thunderous serve during one game in the second set (IIRC(. His excuse was it was unreturnable so why bother. He even hugged a ball boy (big no-no at Wimbledon) and swore up a storm at the Referee. He is another McEnroe minus the talent - so far. Lots of potential if you ask him.

TC, "there you go again" was his line with Carter. It was during the portion on SS and Medicare. His line with Mondale was: "I want you to know also I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience." But do you remember Gerry Ford debating without his helmet when he noted that there was no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never will be under a Ford Administration.

Melilla is a spanish enclave surrounded by Morroco on the Med. Its main occupation is stopping the Moors from entering Spain. The video is in Flemish but the smuggling is pretty ingeniious. Watch toward the end - they even find the illegals in car bumpers and the glove box of a car. http://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20150812_01815426

Damn if Greta didn't give Jeb the Rickover chair. I think maybe Sand Daze knows what I am talking about here.
I wonder if rthe Million Dollar Highway in Colorado has been devalued by the spill. US 550 is a spectcular drive if you have never done it. Right there in Silverton.
henry, Then there is a reason why they are not under the Obama Express bus. Why would McCarthay take full responsibility when she has a fully qualified scapegoat? I am not convinced. I think the WSJ reporters are getting emergency response confused with remediation. But that is just my stupid antennae.
henry, Are we sure? They could be the emergency response contractor they brought in. Do you have a cite they were the ones who pushed the pipe in?
I refuse to watch the 5 when Jerry Rivers is on. He is just a talking point machine under the control of levers being pulled by the DNC and the Clinton Crime Family. He gets a cut. I only wish Trump would take that POS clown down at sometime. Yeah, Ailes is a genius.
Jane, He has evidently read Bozo's hip replacement comments diuring the ACA debate. How dare he avoid the death panels.
Robin, Do you live in Hanover?
jimmyk, All of us here feel your pain. A lonely voice in the UWS wilderness. But there are lots of people out there who are even smarter and more affluent who believe the same as the washed up Soap Opera actress. Rush calls it a mental disease. I agree.
I agree with the poster who dubbed this move "kabuki". Strategic kabuki. If this means that now the Judicial Watch FOIA and Gowdy's committee get stymied because of "an ongoing investigation" then Hll and Co. have achieved their purpose. Hide the cheese. It may have legs but they are prostetics.
NORK missile failure?
marlene, How close are you to Bangor/Dow AFB? What you're seeing most likely is refueling training exercises. I think the 101st Air Refueling Squadron is out of Bangor for the Maine ANG.
Talking about the GOP: Today is World Elephant Day. Why are Elephants Ears So Big? That and linguistic characteristics they possess. http://www.sciencefriday.com/blogs/05/09/2014/why-are-elephant-ears-so-big-and-other-pachyderm-questions.html
The Animas River spill is turning into a circular firing squad between the EPA and neighboring states and Indian tribes as well as between competing adjacent mine operators. The more I read you can call it a deliberate act but I don't believe it was nefarioius in nature. The crew was attempting to vent (drain) a portion of the waste sludge build up by installing a pipe through the portal's bulkhead. They got a slow sippage from above the penetration that triggered a larger breach. There are four mines with possible interconnections that are leaching over 500 gallons of acidiic sludge each day. Two of the mines are known to interconnect and Gold King is blaming the Knross mine for the over abundance of the waste that breached the bulkhead. Still no mention if there was a private contractor involved. More in this Denver Post story. http://www.denverpost.com/environment/ci_28624471/gold-king-mine-one-many-area-releasing-heavy?source=rss
Rocco, So, it was a Citgo station. Venezuela, baby. Sue like its no tomorrow. Actually, the EPA has a program and office called Office of Underground Storage Tanks or LUST for Leaking UST. I may be wrong, since it has been a while, but I believe they have some money they deliver as gransts to the states to cover remediation. Can't remember if they cover adjacent property owner damages. They may want to check with the State Environment agency to see what recourse they have. Was the station owned by the oil company or was it an owner operated station. And what about insurance?
