Beautiful paint job on that egg - a real work of art - needs to be preserved somehow, I could not stand to destroy it after putting that much work into it.

"When a sitting Supreme Court justice tells anyone to revolt against their government, that’s a problem. It is difficult to tell if Scalia was snarky or serious, but with his record, and loyal service to the Koch brothers it’s likely that he was serious."

It's pretty obvious Obama et al succumbed from day one. Lazy piece of crap.

Corporate Tax Loopholes Leaving America in a Hole

The good news is that on January 1st, two costly loopholes benefiting a tiny sliver of corporate America -- to the tune of $80 billion over a decade -- finally expired.

The bad news? Corporate lobbyists are pushing to reopen these costly loopholes, and so far Congress is listening.

One of these obscure loopholes, called the “active financing exception,” lets some of America's biggest companies, including GE and many Wall Street banks, use accounting tricks to make money earned here in America appear on the books of shell companies in tax havens, where they don’t have to pay taxes. 

With the help of loopholes like this one, General Electric managed to pay nothing in federal taxes between 2008 and 2012, while raking in $3.1 billion worth of tax breaks -- and posting $27.5 billion in profits.

When big corporations dodge taxes, the rest of us pick up the tab. Average taxpayers have to make up for these $80 billion loopholes through higher taxes, cuts to public priorities, or more debt.

We have an opportunity to keep these costly loopholes off the books, but GE and its allies are leaving nothing to chance. There are 292 lobbyists alone that are pushing Congress to keep their “active financing exception.”

Tell your Senators not to renew these loopholes, so that tax dodging corporations will have to pay their share

I don't like the Democrats or the Republicans. I'd prefer the Green Party and maybe have them run against the Libertarian party. Screw the tea party nuts. Though the Libertarian party has such extreme far right economic policies it would be kind of scary if they were in charge. The Green party is further left on some economic policies than I'd like, but they are by far the best for the job, followed by the Libertarians. If only we had a good mix of Greens and Libertarians replacing most or at least many of the Democrats and Republicans, things would be so much better.

The Republican Party is prepared to go down with the ship, even though the only ones left on board are the rats.

One of the main conversations of the 2008 election was healthcare reform.  The American people spoke when they chose President Obama over Senator McCain.  In 2012, with the Affordable Care Act being a central issue, the American public spoke again and decided to continue with President Obama.

Now, with more than 8 million people signing up through healthcare.gov, even more being helped through the Medicaid expansion, and people signing up directly through insurance companies, the Republicans are panicking.  Instead of switching their position, and working to make the Affordable Care Act better, they are more determined than ever to harm the American people by repealing the law with no replacement.

Screw Republicans - I don't know a single republican in office I could stand voting for. I don't like the Dems, but we always get stuck choosing between the lesser of two evils. That, and Obama could have done so much more if the mere threat of a filibuster wasn't all it takes to block legislation the Republicans don't like. Just let the have a filibuster and draw it out as long as it takes, or until congressmen/women are passing out from lack of sleep and it ends that way. That is their job, not being so yellow they cower in fear and hide as soon as they hear the F word.

Only went here one time. The food was INCREDIBLY BAD. When we complained, it seemed that all of a sudden no spoke English or cared to.

The pizza is very good. The Chicken Parmesan is REALLY good, and the salads are excellent. On the whole the food delivery experience from Vocellis has everyone else beat in Chesterfield.
