good lord... it's difficult to pick which was a bigger war criminal... Bush or Reagan
The 8 years Reagan was in office represented one of the most bloody eras in the history of the Western hemisphere, as Washington funneled money, weapons and other supplies to right wing death squads. And the death toll was staggering–more than 70,000 political killings in El Salvador, more than 100,000 in Guatemala, 30,000 killed in the contra war in Nicaragua. In Washington, the forces carrying out the violence were called "freedom fighters." This is how Ronald Reagan described the Contras in Nicaragua: "They are our brothers, these freedom fighters and we owe them our help. They are the moral equal of our founding fathers
Reagan used tax payer dollars to fund right wing death squads in central america that killed a hundred thousand or so innocent people
befriended Saddam Hussein and sent him chemical weapons to kill his own people as well as Iranian children
laughed off the threat of aids
the father of trickle down economics
the father of govt deregulation
presided over the savings and loan fiasco
called social programs "communism"
was an original John Birch society wingnut
amazing how the right wing nuts go bonkers because 4 people died in a terrorist attack in Benghazi... yet George Bush presided over multiple terrorists attacks on our foreign consulates, and not a peep from the wingnuts... not to mention of course had his finger up his #$%$ on 9/11 where "ONLY" 3000 people died... and Raygun sent 250 U.S. Marines to be blown to bits in Beirut... yet the right wing a-holes only think it's a big deal when 4 people die under a demo ratic administration... it doesn't get more stupid than the people who worship FOX NEWS and their gaggle of liars and hatemongers
never declared myself a "master trader"
but it didn't take a brain surgeon to realize the recent pump & dump from some anonymous twitter "stock guru" who pumped it to his subscribers would not last more than a day or two... duhhhh
posters like innsbrook and valuedolt are the ultimate dumfuk bagholders
they still think George Bush was a war hero... it really doesn't get more stupid than that
of course not... some people just don't know when to take profits, or cut their losses, like some of the bagholders here who bought @ $4 years ago
thanks for the pump and dump to $2... that was nice
Ram Power, Corp. Announces Successful Completion of Remediation Drilling Program at San Jacinto
RENO, NV--(Marketwired - January 22, 2014) - Ram Power, Corp. (TSX: RPG) ("Ram Power" or the "Company"), a renewable energy company focused on the development, production and sale of electricity from geothermal energy, is pleased to announce that the remediation program, which was initiated on July 18, 2013 at our San Jacinto-Tizate project (the "Project"), has ended as of January 14, 2013.
The remediation drilling program to increase the steam resource of the Project called for the refurbishment of four existing production wells as well as the replacement and perforation of specified well casings along with the deepening and forking of two wells. The plan is expected to increase steam availability of approximately 9 to 14 MW gross or 70-110 tonnes / hour of additional net capacity bringing total generation to approximately 59 to 63 MW (net). The remediation drilling operations were led by Sinclair Knight Merz, the resource consultant for the Company, and PENSA engineering personnel (the "Remediation Team").
Update to Well SJ 9-3
As previously disclosed, during the heat-up period and discharge test of well SJ 9-3 in December of 2013, the Company conducted a sinker bar survey run and discovered an obstruction at approximately 1,100 meters in the main leg of the well. Following the conclusion of the remediation efforts in SJ 12-3, the Company mobilized the ThermaSource drilling rig back to well SJ 9-3 to clear the obstruction. The Company successfully drilled out the obstruction, and following the clearing, the Company conducted a sinker bar measurement which reached the final depth of 1,980 meters.
Well SJ 9-3 is now in thermal recovery and the Company remains encouraged with the initial results including, but not limited to, the drilling loss circulation during remediation, down hole temperature and the results of the injectivity test.

once again conservatives love to prove how monumentally stupid they are, falling for every dumb lie on the internet... the "Obama phone"
There is one problem with the Obama Phone: It doesn’t exist.
Since 2009, there has been an urban myth that Obama created a program to provide free phones to low-income Americans at taxpayer expense. There is, in fact, a government program that will provide low-income people with a free or low cost cell phone. It was started in 2008 under George W. Bush.
The idea of providing low-income individuals with subsidized phone service was originated in the Reagan administration following the break-up of AT&T in 1984. (It was expanded and formalized by the Telecommunications Act of 1996.) The program is paid for by telecommunications companies through an independent non-profit, not through tax revenue.
Taxes? I don't mind paying them because I'm not a greedy selfish moron
meanwhile, the republiCONS at work again
The 900,000 poorest working families in North Carolina just got another tax hike from the conservatives who swept state legislature elections in 2010.
The change took effect at the beginning of 2014, meaning that the taxes those families file this spring will be the last to feature the state’s tax break for the working poor. The provision, known as the Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC, will also be 10 percent less generous in its final year. State-level EITCs work by tacking on an additional benefit to the federal EITC, and the law repealing North Carolina’s EITC for 2014 also cut the credit from 5 percent to 4.5 percent of the federal benefit.
North Carolina Republicans, and lawmakers slashed and then eliminated the state’s EITC during last year’s legislative session. That change was overshadowed by the GOP’s broader changes to the basic shape of the income tax code in the state to favor the rich and harm the rest.
Along with the disappearance of the EITC, low-income North Carolinians will be paying higher taxes in order to pay for a tax cut for the richest people in the state. Republicans moved from a two-tiered, progressive income tax system to a flat tax rate of 5.8 percent. A person who earns a million dollars per year will get a roughly $10,000 tax cut thanks to that move, but the bottom 80 percent of the income distribution will see their taxes rise. That means that four out of five taxpayers in the state were going to pay more next year even before the EITC repeal.
Ted Cruz: Your Equine Posterior Achievement Award Winner
Submitted by Brian Tashman on Friday, 1/17/2014 4:05 pm
The votes are in for Right Wing Watch readers’ Equine Posterior Achievement Award, and by a whopping margin this year’s winner is Ted Cruz. With 57.4% of the vote, Cruz easily triumphed over competitors like Michele Bachmann, Pat Robertson and Glenn Beck.
And the achievement is well deserved, considering all of the stunts from Cruz we had to put up with last year.
After triggering the government shutdown over Obamacare, he seems to be the only person in America who actually believes that President Obama and congressional Democrats were responsible for the battle, with Republican leaders admitting that Cruz and his ultraconservative allies were responsible for the disastrous shutdown. During his faux-filibuster of the health care reform law, Cruz held himself in such high regard that he even compared himself to soldiers in World War II who suffered through the Bataan Death March.
Cruz in the end failed to derail Obamacare, and was only able to damage the economy, flub basic Senate rules, grow his fundraising list and become the star of a children’s coloring book. Many of his GOP colleagues in the Senate also took Cruz to task for his role in the disastrous shutdown.
With a penchant for conspiracy theories, Cruz was literally laughed at for his claim about the government creating a “national gun registry” and mocked for invoking fears about the alleged dangers of Agenda 21.
While none of this should come as a surprise as he campaigned for the Senate against the imagined threat of Sharia law and a George Soros plot to eliminate golf courses and paved roads, other remarks have been more chilling, like when he wondered if Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel took money from North Korea and called the families who lost loved ones in the Newtown massacre “political props.”
Cruz received a hero’s welcome at the Values Voter Summit, one of the biggest conservat
So you don't think it's the responsibility of chemical industries to monitor their own facilities
WOW, talk about a complete MORON... we all know that if republiCONS had their way they would abolish the EPA and just let companies rape and pillage at will
just like the republiCONS deregulated the financial industry and caused a global crisis and stock market plunge and almost another great depression
but republiCON voters never seem to learn, they seem to take pride in their stupidity
4 people die in a terrorist strike in Libya and the republicons blame Obama and call it a cover-up
3000 people die at the WTC and the republicons send thousands more to Iraq to die for NOTHING, and yet they think Bush is some kind of war hero
republicons don't even believe in science... they think hurricanes are caused by a gay parade
they think Sarah Palin is an "intellectual"
modern day republicons are america's taliban
fecal excrement for brains
blames the price of SYMX stock on Obama
blames a West Virginia company that poisoned their own water on Obama
blames his erectile dysfunction on Obama
what a complete MORON
SYMX stock had a nice dead cat bounce from 60 cents... probably will test 1.00 aqain...
don't believe these idiots who bought SYMX at $4 and now blame Obama for every miserable failing in their pathetic lives
so the "Chinese folks" can magically make the stock price go up??... according to some here it was the "Chinese folks" purposefully holding the stock price down... only your hairdresser knows for sure
could just be the proverbial dead cat bounce, aka January effect, from massive tax loss selling and an oversold condition... then once the stock breaks out above a trading range more buyers pile in... technically, it was due for a bounce
