Most grown ups begin sentences with capital letters and "yea" is spelled Yeah. Plant's "Grow ups". I matured to adulthood. Then I began contributing solution's. You claim you're "grow up". You can too. "DEPORT DEPORT ..." is an avenue but we've implored congress come up with a real solution.

I peeped you're G+ page. You claim "real' Americans are losing jobs to undocumented workers. I agree with you to a certain extent. Grown ups know that isn't the key issue our economy is tanking. (1) The ability to compete in a viable employment marketplace and sell yourself is to present your hired skillset as an asset to the growth of a business. What else can you suggest to keep America moving forward.

Mountie wants his cake (Pot) and eat it to !
But he has a prescription for Medical Marijuana ... so why not ?
When will Canada just Legalize Pot ?
I'd say it's about time we do considering the Majority of Canadians which includes non-users of marijuana, are in favor of legalization or decriminalization now.

Google hosted a $2,500 a person fundraising dinner for one of the world’s most powerful climate change deniers, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe.
And just two weeks before that, Google poured $50,000 into the coffers of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a right-wing think tank that is also funded by the likes of ExxonMobil and Philip Morris (Altria) to put out faux "studies" that are used by policy-makers to deny climate change exists.
Google had been a corporate leader in fighting for the environment, so why is it funding the very people and institutions that are fighting tooth and nail to block progress on climate change?

So what's up with that ? Just what are you thinking Google ?
And Who's Side Are You On ?

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION "Pledge to never fund climate change deniers again."

A Question for my fellow Samsung (Android) Galaxy Ace 2 owners/users.

I have had very little success with any Bar Code Scanners. I have downloaded and tried several with minimal if any success, including "QR Code Reader" and one simply called "Barcode Scanner".
I want to be able to use my phone to scan those Square Codes (whatever you call'em ?).

I have only dl'd and used Free Scanners. If it will actually make a difference, I will purchase for the right price.

I would love to hear what others have used and recommendations of RELIABLE Scanner Apps.
Thanks in Advance.

I was just reading a post re: The HORROR it would be to have Ted Cruz run for President and it reminded me of this Hilarious Web Page developed when the threat of Sarah Palin being Pres, only a heartbeat away.
Check this out. It's HILARIOUS.
As you move your Cursor around and over different objects in the room, you will see that you can Click on many things.
Each time you click, you may see something different happen. For example, there are several things that happen when you click on the Closet Doors repeatedly.
This is one of the BEST webpages I have EVER Seen. !!

Factual Statistics that Republicans don't want you to know/see. They like to bitch about Obama's time away from the office (promoting his visions) but they don't want you to compare that to Bush's time out of office ... on the Golf Course and on his Ranch (personally breeding cows !!).

I came across this video today (by accident) and thought it is worth sharing.
I don't particularly subscribe to all that this girl is suggesting, but we currently have been given some pretty feeble information re: Assad and Chemical Weapons. A month ago, I had read that Rebels had in fact used small amounts of saran gas to prompt US/UN into joining in the War in Syria.
For all I know, this is Assad's own daughter ... but even if poorly edited, it is worth a few minutes to watch and really consider what is about to take place.

Story
Introduction
I have been self employed for most of my adult life. However, after becoming a Certified Building Code Official (BCQ - Bldg. Code Qualified) in 1996, I began working as a Municipal Chief Building Official & By-Law Enforcement Officer. I became a CBCO in 2000 (Certified Building Code Official ... similar to BCQ however, one must have minimum 3 years as a Government Employee to qualify as a CBCO).

I did this work for almost 7 years total and worked for several different, relatively small Municipalities. I retired from doing Municipal Inspections for several reasons, not least of which is due to having a bad back (old work injury). Before, during and following this work, I continued to operate "HomeTech" for a total of 20 years. HomeTech offered Arch. Design/Drafting/Consulting Services, Private Bldg Inspection and "Arch. Forensic Inspections & Expert Witness Services". The latter was utilized by those who have been "taken for a ride" by "fly-by-night" contractors and/or delinquent Municipal Building Inspection Departments. I boast a 100% success rate for all legal actions.

I was forced to closed HomeTech in Oct. '09 thanks to the Global Economic Meltdown. Poor finances forced me to retire my membership with the OBOA (Ontario Building Official's Assoc.). As such, I can no longer utilize the CBCO after my name. In other words, I am once again, "just yer average Joe".

Since closing the above mentioned business, I have been working hard at starting a new business call "Models To Globe". Most recently I just uploaded the beginnings of a New Website. The new business involves mostly "3D Geo-Modeling" but will also include some Google Gadget type web page enhancements for businesses that I Geo-Model. My new business website is at www.modelstoglobe.com.

I have been using SketchUp since v4 and ultimately purchased and presently use v7 Pro ... which I absolutely love.
