Watch that Siberian high pressure system. It' size and duration are likely more important than the snowpack, which is an effect rather than cause. Sustained and stationary high pressure area will eventually lead to longer snowpack duration and if it lasts long enough, we'll start the next ice age. Or not.

An Obama Defeat? Well, Maybe Not...

To defeat the Obama machine and legacy, the Republicans need not "work with him", but perform in accordance with the will of the People - for the good of the greatest number - and let Obama veto what the People want, or get all unilateral in spite of the People. Putting it all up front and open - and with proper process - will show who is really obstructing.

Yeah - "wow". Too bad that, for the GOP future, this was the easy part. If the established GOP does not embrace their base - and their more conservative New blood, they will undoubtedly throw this all away in '16. At this particular point, we may have only progressed to liberal-lite - and the last thing we need now is "less of the same".

Don't vote? Don't whine! Only players have the right to critique their game, the rest are just background noise.

Why You Shouldn’t Vote

To many, a vote is expected to be a fix, when it is really just a step. The biggest problem with "all-or-nothing" is impatience; a hallmark feature of liberal "progress". Unfortunately, that leaves you nothing at least half the time - -and ALL might just be less than you need.
Remind them: those who don't vote have neither cause, nor right, to complain. After all, they got what they chose.

The Democrats' Achilles' Heel

Democrats (liberals) need the fantasy and lies to rule, because ruling is their arrogant self-perceived place among their lessers. To rule, they must control the ignorant peasants using all the tools at their disposal, from fantasy to eugenics, and lie about the origins. They must be pretty good at it, too. They perpetually convince large segments of the population to support historically failed positions on nearly all subjects.

Dems are liberals, liberals are impatient. Where would their policies be without the GOP trying valiantly to make them work? After all, the Dems are off on another vote-buying movement du jour. Maybe that has always been the plan, as it drags the GOP ever more leftward as they try to garner their own votes.
Raised minimum wage is a socialist policy - that makes it hard to get a minimum wage job. But then, that is how socialist (interfering) policies work. Considering only 3 or 4% of the extremely mobile workforce is making the minimum wage at any point could as easily mean we are paying too much - which is easier to show "proof" of, since there are so many unemployed, unqualified, untrained inexperienced teenagers and young adults out there. Maybe LOWERING the minimum wage might work better than raising it has? After all, it has been raised many times - with the same result

Personally, I think the elephant is a pervasive lack of responsibility, except in rare instance. Your point about hospitals is still solid, tho. Can they explain why anywhere that makes it a business to deal with infectious disease doesn't have a way to quarantine someone INDOORS??? Then there is the two nurses in Texas: of the limited number of personnel even allowed access, how do you get two-for-one?? Maybe your protocol is lousy - wherever you got it from. Is this what our hospitals are?
