    Tighten these regulations but do nothing with the chemical storage regulations from which a lack of can, ohhhh, I don’t know, blow up entire towns. Is that Rod Serling over there?

        Agent from another galaxy which doesn’t teach reading comprehension,
        I am not trying to run down TX. Did I say the State of Texas is bad? I think the state does some good things and has some great cities, like Austin. It has some decent BBQ, too. I just find it funny when one juxtaposes Texas’ administration’s contrasting view on regulations (in this case, health vs. death). I expect my politicians to play politics and all, but c’mon.

        Ever visited Iowa? So, not real sure how those green eggs and ham taste, huh? You’re welcome for a good portion of the food you eat, by the way. Majority of it is corn based. Something like over 95% – even the livestock you raise down there. Take a guess where a strong portion of that feed comes from? (Jeopardy music)…

    Sounds to me like the DOI wants people to use Trained Professionals that have gone through back round checks as opposed to the jack ass navigators that sign people up for what the heck they can at the time that is forcing people to change their docs.

    I seems to remember that there are trained professionals ready to go. I just cant remember what they call them…. HMMM.

    Agent, got any ideas?

      Texas just wants Navigators to be trained and above reproach if they are going to help people get health insurance. This is unlike Sebelius who admitted in front of a committee that no background checks are done and little education is required. Have you seen the expose’ on these navigators? They were advising people who smoked to not say that on the app. Also, fib on income or the rates might be higher. My guess is that many of the federal navigators are selling socials for ID theft. We will see how it unfolds.

    But Agent, Obama said they were good. We should just trust him like Biden pleaded with American during the VP Debate.

      Biden was picked for VP because of his so called expertise on foreign affairs/defense. Former Secretary of Defense Gates basically said Biden was an imbecile in every meeting and disagreed with his assessments on every issue. I can’t believe an honorable man like Gates stayed as long as he did.

    I think it was face the nation on Sunday, the Dems were on just playing the blame game towards the Reps on all the woes. The rep was talking about Biden being the worst possible person to make any military calls. They were quoting Gates.

    Typical Political BS. Blame everyone else. Don’t take responsibility. Its all someone else’s fault.

    Well Cap, the Bulls have thrown in the towel for this season. Deng Gone. Heinrich on his way out. Boozer going going…. They should unload D Rose. I am gonna be real pissed if they send Noah packing.

    At least Chicago is well represented in the Base Ball Hall of Fame.
    Maddux & Big Frank. The master of the mound and the basher of the ball…

      Yes, they have thrown in the towel. But, as I understand it, they are doing this to keep D Rose happy. Supposedly freeing up cap space to make at least 1 splash in the free agency market. I’ve heard Carmello, which I hope isn’t true. We only get to play with one basketball and we don’t need it in the hands of one player at all times. Boozer is somewhat expendable – a big man who would rather shoot 13 footers than mash the boards and bang (bangers and mash? Now I’m hungry) – love to see The Big Hurt and Maddux get their due. Now I’m thinking Cubs and missing Ron Santo again. Wonder if Pat Hughes peels an orange up there in the booth every now and again for old times sake.

      Bulls’ tix cheap and easy to come by these days? Enjoy the weekend, FFA.

      Greg Maddux is the MAN! I love him!! He was with the Cubs when the only stations carrying baseball were WGN and TBS. I followed Maddux and his battery mate Joe Girardi like an amateur stalker when they left Chicago. I miss them.
