I doubt Hannity would be caught dead in Mississipi.
I feel so sorry for these companies that feel compelled to move to Dublin Ireland because they just can't survive any longer in the U.S. Maybe they should hire better tax accountants if they are paying 35% in income taxes. Somehow I doubt that is the real rate they are paying.
I would guess an American soldier is worth five terrorists. Those five bad guys released will all be dead within two years given our drone technology today.
Sounds like Oracle is not being held accountable for the failed web-site. Oregon should have used professional IT project managers instead of trying to run it on the cheap with their own people. Managing vendors to project completion is a daunting task that should not have been left to amateurs. There is no excuse for a failure of this magnitude given the number of vendors who are qualified to work on health care projects.
It isn't exactly prime real estate. Who determines how much is too much anyway? Bundy is lucky his cattle were grazing on federal lands. The fees are 1/10 of what private landowners would charge, and he even reneged on that. As a taxpayer I expect the government to get the taxes due them so the tax burden doesn't fall on the rest of us. Bundy is a cheater and a racist.
There are certain dues you pay for living in a free country. None of us have the right to decide what taxes/fees we will pay and which ones we won't. We are supposed to be law abiding citizens and if we have an issue we go to the ballot box. Bundy is as much of a recepient of welfare as those he decries. He is even worse because he should know better. The perception is that conservatives are now no better than white supremists. The Civil War ended in 1865. We pledge allegiance to the United States of America, not the state of Nevada or any other state.

Nelson Mandela Dead at 95

Amazing that aparthied survived so long into the 20th Century even with the trevails of Nelson Mandela. His forgiveness of his captors was a great moment in world history. One man really can triumph over evil.
We look to the rest of the world like idiots. No one shuts down the government . It makes us look like a bunch of kidergartners who never learned to play together. China is watching very carefully. They would like nothing better than to replace the U.S. dollar as the worlds reserve currency. Cruze should not be insulting his fellow U.S. Senators and starting a revolt within his own party. Conservatives represent less than 30% of voters, moderates represent over 50% and liberals over 20%. In order to win elections, you need moderate votes and it seems Republican's are going out of their way to push moderates into voting Democratic. Guys like Ted Cruze scare them. He is way too ideological. Another guy who never held a real job.
As John McCain said " a fools errand."
Cruze isn't satisfied with costing the American economy 24 billion and causing American business to start recalibrating their economic outlook for the last quarter of this year and first quarter of next year. As a senior who relies on Social Security and my investments I am not a big fan of putting my assets at risk everytime someone starts an ideological battle that hurts real people. At some point investors around the world are going to start seriously looking at other places to put their money than the United States. That would endanger our status of being the worlds reserve currency. If that were to happen you would be guaranteed to see a skyrocketing rise in interest rates and another serious recession. That helps no one.
