Toggle Commented 8 minutes ago on Another Surprise From The Granny Clan at MaxRedline
It all depends upon what the meaning of the word "is" is.... These people never cease to amaze, though I should be used to it by now.
Unlike PC, JW sold for $871 million to a VC firm 4 years ago. They now expect to get $4 billion in the upcoming IPO. Headquarters is moving to NC because: lower taxes than Oregon. The peons and their two factories will stay in K Falls - for now.
It doesn't seem to apply to EPA, so....
Only if you engaged in criminal conduct, which no Democratic can ever do.

If it's government, it's going to be a waste.

They stand to make a lot of money off the IPO. A few percentage points matter.
I kind of assumed that the receptionist might have realized that I was there to retrieve Dog from the groomer part of their operation. But at least they finally got a laugh out of it. When the groomer showed up with the shaved mutt, I asked, "What did you do with our dog?" "I kept half of him," she replied. I don't congratulate women, either; it sometimes "offends".

It never seems to matter with that bunch.
Well, that and the river they screwed up in Georgia a few months earlier. Between the two of 'em, I figger cleanup could take half a decade or longer.
I've no idea; I'd guess onsite storage for the time being.

Wouldn't surprise me.

Yes, that was a matter of truly pressing national importance. Next up: renaming Mt. Jefferson. Because slaves.

As long as they leave their political ideology back at their old pad in California, no problemo.
Yeah, about that biofool thing: Willamette Valley Democratics here passed a "clean fuels bill" and were darned proud of themselves. Hey, it never gets very cold here. But over on the east side of the Cascades, where temperatures often drop to single digits, the mandated biofool in the mix solidifies. Engines in school buses have stopped working mid-route. But it's a job-creator, as the engines have to be disassembled and cleaned.

Trojan Horse, eh? I'm pretty sure they bought NEST for a reason, so their OnHub will have someone to talk to.

Better them than government, I think. But I try to keep abreast of what Google, Apple, and Microsoft are doing. Google's OnHub router is particularly interesting, because as a router, it sucks. But they've built in a huge cpu and memory, so it's pretty obvious that they have more in mind. They bought NEST, so I imagine that's where they're heading with OnHub.

She looked good in her orange pantsuit, a week or so back. She ought to be wearing orange on a daily basis.

I should've trademarked it.

I did rehab for years. Then I realized that apart from noctournals, it was pretty much a waste of time, money, and effort. Now, emerging data support that view.

More likely - they're getting a lot of cash from them.
A study in contradiction; even I can see it.

If they could leave their ideology behind along with the state they're fleeing, everyone would benefit.
Every time Obama talks about change, a baby's diaper becomes clean and a homeless person's cup fills with nickels.
