You mean lack of healthcare.... I mean you get sick in Canada and you're pretty much dead with all those wait lists and death panels.
If it weren't for those wait lists and death panels, I'd still be alive today.

Welcome back; I was beginning to wonder if you'd frozen to death somewhere in the remote reaches of the Northwest Territory or something.

I got very, very busy, both with work and with learning and experimenting with new stuff. (In this case, mostly more VMware and Visual Studio stuff. And learning why I won't be developing much in the way of Windows Metro / RT apps.) That usually means dropping things like forum posting for a while.

And the longer that happens, the longer it takes to catch up.

I hate everything about the way they've done Metro / RT apps. If I wanted a closed contractual system like that I'd go with apple. OTOH, I love the way Microsoft is changing/improving entity framework - damn thing is like magic, which is both scary and cool - I'm not sure how much I want to let go of FROM blah SELECT *.

Yup. It makes sense for those writing apps to sell to the general public.

But for those of us who want to write apps for personal use, or to distribute to a few friends or a closed group, we DON'T WANT to publish it in a store, and yet that's a requirement.

Sure, you can publish without the store if your machines are hooked to a domain controller. And I even have a domain controller at home. But that doesn't let me publish to some desktops. Or any laptops. Or tablets. Or to friends and relatives.

Well, that's fine, but what about the issues that really matter here? Like the IRS scandal that our comrade Issa is pursuing, or the god awful Benghazi event, or how this bloviating president we have continues to bring shame and degradation upon us at every turn? Continual hesitation when confronted with crises....when America is threatened it should be hammer time. God, when will it end?

Good question. Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS SuperPAC - a Virginia corporation - failed to register as a charitable organization in Virginia during the 2012 election? Did the IRS allow donors to get their tax breaks anyway?

Not to mention over a dozen similar incidents during the previous administration alone. (Yes, really.)

Only when he sticks to Republican policy. Granted, that's pretty often.

His reputation there is better than the previous administration. Just ask Bin Laden. Or Bin Laden's friends operating from Pakistan. Or Somali pirates.

Why? Do you think that Obama should have chosen the Republican method, and launched a ten-year occupation of Libya? Or taken a page from the Republican playbook and responded to the situation in Syria by invading Qatar?

Judging by Republicans rallying around folks like Ted Cruz, it'll end with the next Democrat presidency.

Word on the street is there are a lot of speakers of the American language up in Canada being oppressed...

I think its time to free or brothers and sisters.

Something new I learned today. The US national anthem's melody is a rip off of an old English drinking song composed ~ 1775 called "To Anacreon in Heaven"



I bet the patriots back in the day sang this tune while being hammered on Bud Light.

I'm just glad that Ted Cruz and other patriotic Americans have taken the opportunity since last nights State of the Union message to reiterate that the policies of the Obama administration have done nothing but make us weaker and poorer. These economic recovery myths are just that...myths foisted on the gullible. We need to bring back leaders like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld if we're ever going to make progress.

Great a wetback on an illiterate Egyptian immigrant. Even the Triple Crown ain't American anymore.
It really is time to stop being nice about stupidity.

Fear not; the advertising is all-American. Triple Crown winner American Pharaoh already had a deal with Monster, the energy drink, worth over $7 million.

Had the horse not won the Triple Crown, it has a back-up deal with Arby's.
