Credit card clampdown gives shoppers holiday headache
Wed Dec 24, 2014
Please - just use cash, Suzi? The muggers and pickpockets love it. Be sure to leave a stack of that "cash" stuff on the car seat while you go into the mall, also. Seriously, use a credit card with a zero fraud liability - never a debit card. And always use a virtual account n …
Ben Stiller, Steve Carell, more celebs blast 'Interview' cancellation on Twitter
Thu Dec 18, 2014
In reply to: Cniht #4.1 They should just release it free on YouTube and a few hundred other free sites - they are not going to get any return on it anyway. And the hackers could never stifle dozens of anonymous free sites.
Theaters Pull Sony's 'The Interview' After Hacker Threat of Violence
Wed Dec 17, 2014
Oh well - they can still make a profit with online and dvd sales of the movie. The rental, cable and satellite services might be too gutless to distribute it, though. It was a rather low-class, insulting idea - it might have been wise to use a fictional leader and country as the target of the …
Tony Abbott on Sydney Siege: Sheikh Haron Wasn't on Watch List
Tue Dec 16, 2014
In reply to: valntino #4.3 Yes, this guy was throwing off signals, loud and strong. As an Iranian immigrant, the letters he sent should have been enough to deport him. Those went far beyond free speech - threatening and inflammatory. With his history, the murder and burning s …
Your All-Electric Vehicle May Not Be So Green, Study Says
Mon Dec 15, 2014
Illinois is high in percentage of coal power ? They have lots of nuclear plants (11 reactors in 6 locations.) "Nuclear energy already provides about 20 percent of the country’s electricity, and Illinois’ six facilities generate more than 48 percent of the state’s elect …
Senate Reaches Deal for Saturday Night Vote on $1.1 Trillion Spending Bill
Sat Dec 13, 2014
In reply to: JerseyJohn #95.10 "...trying to keep wallstreet out of washingtons decision making process." Good idea - they should also keep washington out of wall street's decision-making process. Don't let the financiers donate to politicians, and don't let the politicians microm …
Nearly $40 Million in FEMA Sandy Aid Possibly 'Improper or Fraudulent'
Fri Dec 12, 2014
In reply to: WashingtonStateEagle #5 The numbers don't seem to be surprisingly high - 2.6%, 10%, 22% - no big deal. I truly believe that the average federal government program/agency has about 50% waste, not just FEMA. This is based on a definition of waste as expenses that contrib …
Hold my beer and watch this! Study supports 'male idiotic theory'
Thu Dec 11, 2014
Men can afford to be more reckless - they do it to impress the female, like a bird of paradise. Males only have to survive for about 3 minutes to reproduce successfully. A woman probably needs to live and be competent for at least 10 or 12 years (after breeding) to get the litter up to s …
Sony Hack: Executive Amy Pascal Apologizes for 'Insensitive' Emails About Obama
Thu Dec 11, 2014
Evidently this is why the FBI/NSA/CIA/DIA is unable to locate (or admit they have located) the source of the Sony hack - their bosses boss has been slammed Why come to the aid of someone who insults glorious leader ?
To get a bigger bang for your Social Security buck, just wait
Thu Dec 11, 2014
I prefer to think of it like this - every month you delay collecting after 62 is a month you will never collect. Many who lost jobs in the G.R. had no choice - over 50 will never find another job (maybe minimum wage or below - part time.) No one knows their allotted number of years - betting o …
