John, How do you know what I am aware of and what I am not. Have we ever met before and you wereRead More given an opportunity to form an opinion then, are you prejudice and judgemental. Or are you a typical liberal who thinks he knows more than those who oppose him. That without god miracling your behind to our land we would all be lost without you. Typical response from a liberal who has no facts to reply with..Turn of Fox news...because we all know MSNBC is accurate, right John, they are not slanted in your direction.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

@ Michael Kinzig- if marijuana was legal adults would be able to purchase it in oil form, or use aRead More vaporize which removes the harmful smoking practice which makes marjuana even less harmful than alcohol and cigarettes. "sir"- Ask any hard core druggie if they started with weed. Case closed stoners. Bam!... actually sir the most common answer would be alcohol was the first drug they used, however that drug is legal. here's the problem when debating whether marijuana should be legal. the anti marijuana people start bringing up stuff that is completely irrelevant. such as marijuana being harmful, children, and driving. no pro marijuana people say it is not harmful for you, everyone can agree that done often smoking marijuana is harmful to your health and not usually productive. however the same can be said about alcohol, cigs, and fast food. the second thing is bringing up kids. no pro marijuana people are saying kids should be able to obtain it, it would be the same laws and restrictions as alcohol. you educate kids about the harm of alcohol, cigs, marijuana, and hope they make the right decisions if it is ever offered to them. the same goes for driving, the same laws as drinking and driving will be applied to marijuana. the one thing no one can answer is, if alcohol and cigarettes can be legally enjoyed by adults why cant marijuana? they are all harmful products that can potentially lead to other drugs. why as americans are we free to harm our body with one substance but not another ?

Sort of. Corzine completed his term and lost to Christie when he tried to get reelected. McGreeveyRead More resigned suddenly because he was faced with a sexual harassment law suit. Corzine's use of long term bonds which pushed principal payments out 20 years with huge interest payments every year caused nj to have a huge deficit, all the while he was apparently in a relationship with a union leader with whom he was negotiating. Christie had foolish staffers do something idiotic, but the result was traffic jams for four days for people in Ft Lee. No personal gain, no money flowing in any pockets, just stupid stuff. Do we really want to throw out every elected official who has underlings do something wrong or foolish? Still no evidence he did it. Pretty tough standard to uphold.

The Scriptures show how true followers of Christ are supposed to conduct themselves and as leadersRead More of the Congregation, they will be judged just as the Scribes and Pharisees were in Jesus day who mislead many.....Again, the point I was making is we should all look into God's Word for the truth and accept it's teaching..not just take the preacher's word at face value without confirming what the Bible says. Ephesians 5:10,11 states "Keep on making sure of what is acceptable to the Lord and stop sharing in the unfruitful works that belong to the darkness, rather, expose them for what they are"....

ATLANTA (AP) — The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Atlanta apologized Monday for building a $2.2Read More million mansion for himself, a decision criticized by local Catholics who cited the example of austerity set by the new pope. Archbishop Wilton Gregory recently moved into a nearly 6,400-square-foot (595-square-meter) residence. Its construction was made possible by a large donation from the estate of Joseph Mitchell, nephew of Margaret Mitchell, author of "Gone With The Wind," the Civil War epic that made his family wealthy. When Mitchell died in 2011, he left an estate worth more than $15 million to the archdiocese on the condition it be used for "general religious and charitable purposes." Gregory said that he has received criticism over the spending in letters, emails and telephone messages. "I am disappointed that, while my advisors (sic) and I were able to justify this project fiscally, logistically and practically, I personally failed to project the cost in terms of my own integrity and pastoral credibility with the people of God of north and central Georgia," Gregory said in a column posted on the website of the archdiocesan newspaper, The Georgia Bulletin. "I failed to consider the impact on the families throughout the Archdiocese who, though struggling to pay their mortgages, utilities, tuition and other bills, faithfully respond year after year to my pleas to assist with funding our ministries and services," he added. The Catholic leader said he will discuss the situation with several diocesan councils, including a special meeting of its finance council. If church representatives want the bishop to sell the home, Gregory said he will do so and move elsewhere. The purchase of the sprawling home was part of a real estate deal made possible by money from Joseph Mitchell's estate. In his will, Mitchell requested that primary consideration be given to the Cathedral of Christ The King, where he worshipped. The cathedral received $7.5 million for its capital fund and spent roughly $1.9 million to buy the archbishop's old home, according to tax records. Cathedral officials are planning to spend an additional $292,000 to expand Gregory's old home so its priests can live there, freeing up space on the cathedral's cramped campus. After selling his home, Gregory needed a new residence. The archbishop said that he made a mistake while designing a home with large meeting spaces and rooms for receptions and gatherings. "What we didn't stop to consider, and that oversight rests with me and me alone, was that the world and the Church have changed," Gregory said. He demolished the one-story home on Mitchell's property, which was donated to the church, and replaced it with a Tudor-style mansion. In January, a group of local Catholics met with the archbishop and asked that he sell the large home and return to his old residence. They cited the example of Pope Francis, who turned down living quarters in a Vatican palace and drives a simple car. "The example of the Holy Father, and the way people of every sector of our society have responded to his message of gentle joy and compassion without pretense, has set the bar for every Catholic and even for many who don't share our communion," Gregory said. ___ Gregory's column in The Georgia Bulletin: http://www.georgiabulletin.org/commentary/2014/03/the-archbishop-responds/

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 10:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.
