    It is easy to spend monies when it is the taxpayers footing the bill.
    I think the costs of trying to repeal ObamaCare was in the range of $50 million dollars and now this lawsuit.

    Hopefully, it gets thrown out and embarrasses the Republicans even more than they are now.

    You said it best Ruth about taxpayers not wanting this farce.
    It is easy to find money when the Republicans want to do something but when it comes to our citizens, there has to be “off-setting” monies earmarked before any legislation goes forward.

    As I understand it RevBev they voted yesterday to go forward with the lawsuit. It would be ironic if the House voted to sue Obama but refused to pass the VA bill before they go on their 5 week vacation. There was an article yesterday and I am sorry I cannot remember where (sometimers, not [...]

    Good morning everyone.
    Thank you for the post Ruth, and echoing msmolly, it is good to have you back and stay safe with those T-storms in the area.

    Supposed to get to 83 degrees today with a chance of storms here in N. Illinois.

    We have that same problem out here with our electrical coop.

    Using the profits to fight any limitation on coal burning plants and they put out a real nice monthly magazine to use for propaganda purposes too. Bought and paid for by we the customers.

    We are getting more here in N. Illinois but not without opposition every time a proposal is made for a wind farm. Good for Central Oregon. Ruth mentioned at #67 about fossil fuel interest propagandizing against alternative sources. It would be interesting if we could actually see the monies that have been spent to try [...]

    I should have added msmolly that there are other wind farms trying to get start-ups in the area but like you said there are a lot of people that are against them and they are loud in their opposition to the wind farms. The huge campaigns against them like you mentioned probably include people that [...]

    We have a wind farm with the towers that you mentioned in the school district that I sub at and they have been a boon to the school district. New computer labs, computers in most classrooms now and the technology has been upgraded for all three schools. They will soon be a “showcase” school on [...]

    Clean-up costs! “We don’t do no stinkin’ clean-ups, we just pollute…”

    Good for you on the mileage! The weather in our area is supposed to be like this for the rest of the week. We will see as the weatherman has been wrong before.

    Stay safe on your rides msmolly.

    Bingo on the clean-up costs. I loved it the other day when Bernie Sanders arguing for VA monies said that caring for our veterans is one of the costs of war. Of course, war, war, all the time and once the veterans have served their purpose let them fend for themselves. Sorry for the rant, [...]

    Good morning Ruth.
    Not only solar power but wind power too. Both would be a big plus for our energy needs.

    Of course, Congress being bought off by the likes of Koch Bros. and the fossil fuel industry, we are going to have to fight hard to achieve that goal. Probably not in my lifetime.

    Good morning msmolly. Sun is holding here for now at 10:30 a.m. Had to run errands, sign the propane contract for the upcoming year (of course it is going up but that is the only choice we have in a rural area) Really cool so no need for air conditioning. Yay! Did you nave a [...]

    I am going to have to get “hooked” on UP as I have not seen it, do not know what channel or time. We have Direct TV as we live in the boonies and cable is not available out here.

    You and I grew up in a time of Walter Cronkite and others like him who told the truth no matter how unpleasant (or at least I think they did) and were fair and balanced to both sides of the aisle. Today, those are memories in the distant past. We have slanted writing, opinions and [...]

    Good morning Ruth and welcome back. Good to “see” you.
    You are right about Moyers. If anyone can cut through the BS it is him. “A trusted name in journalism” and there are few of them left.

    Good morning everyone.
    Thank you for the post Elly.

    “The Conscience of a Compassionate Conservative…” There is no such thing.
    Frank Luntz really created a bellringer for George W. Bush to foist that phrase on us…and we tended to believe there was such an animal.
