Cleaning Up Here Boss

Rip it all out and start over!
Find missing spoons and candy bars.
I always get a rush when I rip all the wires and cords from my computer, get out the vacuum cleaner, some bleach and wood cleaner, and then put it all back so no wires show and everything works the way I want. I'm on stage three (of four) of that process.

I found two teaspoons, various and sundry doo-dads and whatchamacallits.  After a heavy cleaning I plugged in the router, computer and monitor.  And that's where I'm at.  The floor looks like a minefield—that's done exploded— but I don't care.  I have four whole days to deal with it before MoSup gets back from the Florida nudist camp. 

Everything is so much faster, and the ride smoother, and quieter (no speakers plugged in yet). Just like after a car wash.   And here's why (I think) .  I noticed that, even though I plugged in the same wireless mouse, keyboard and such, there were a lot of  "found installing new hardware" messages.  Then the Microsoft Windows Keyboard and Mouse Center opened (WTF)? 

Here's what I think.  Windows 7 is so intent on things being just soooooo tidy,  that unless you use the same connecty slots that it expects, it creates new device info.   That's the only thing I can think of to explain the new crispness and response.  Never happened on the older Windows. 


Oh My

"We have to pass it to find out what's in it" You Bitch!

While Obama is working the country pushing his Gun Grab ...
An Obamacare tsunami is about to hit ... 

Right now, prior to Obamacare, if you were uninsured, you didn't pay anything.  You went to the emergency room, you finagled, you did whatever you had to do, everything was fine.  It was an option not to pay health insurance. And maybe you didn't pay insurance, if you went to the doctor, you just paid for it. 
"Now everybody is going to pay."

Is Rush saying that the people using free Obamaphones are going to pay? That the near 50% of all Americans who pay no Income Tax but get  tax refunds anyway are going to pay this"fine?"

I don't think so Lucy.
No longer.  Now everybody is going to pay.  The thing is, how many people think Obamacare's free?  How many people think that Obamacare is this massive new entitlement that isn't gonna cost them anything.  Somebody else is gonna be paying for it.  Yet under Obamacare even the uninsured are gonna be paying a minimum of $2,400 a year.  And that $2,400 does not buy you insurance.  It's a penalty for not having it. 

It's just a new tax, $2,400, and you do not get insurance coverage for that.  It's a penalty for not having it.  Family of four or five starting in 2016, $20,000 for the low-end plan.  What's the solution?  First thing, get rid of the kids.  If that doesn't wipe it all out, then get rid of the spouse.  That's the fastest way to get these costs down.  But who's gonna do that?  Who's gonna get rid of the kids?  Nobody's gonna get rid of the kids.  Who's gonna get rid of the spouse just for this?  Well, we'll have to wait and see.  (laughing) [Full Transcript]

New York Uprising in the Hustings

Non-Compliance Resistance Evident at Buffalo vs New York State Q & A Forum on the Arms Bill

...  gun laws on the federal level are far from law, but as states like NY start enacting them the fallout will be met kinda like this. I would consider moving if Georgia passed such a law.  - Tom Smith

I'm seeing the same energy here that the Teaparty had in 2009-2010.  Could be the beginnings of a Democrat slaughter in the 2014 elections.  For politicians, losing power is like being shot dead; so be it..

WTF is this thing called?

New E15 gas can ruin auto engines
The fuel industry’s American Petroleum Institute tested the 15 percent ethanol gas approved in 2010 and found it gums up fuel systems, prompts “check engine” lights to come on, and messes with fuel gauge readings "

" When Congress passed the law, it could not know it was creating this problem. "
The industry prefers pure fuel to an ethanol mix, but the report isn't likely to slow the administrations green push, according to a Washington auto lobbyist.

The New Three Branches of Government
  • The EPA,
  • The IRS
  • Obama's Executive Orders
Last November the governors of eight states and almost 200 members of Congress asked the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to suspend rules that mandate production of ethanol for use in gasoline.

The EPA said no.
