"More Star Wars myths,In a Jon Stewart galaxy a long time ago,
Palin and Biden were running. "
Actually I was referring to next in line if something were to happen to the President, which is the VP. I keep forgetting your mind doesn't work in a rational manner, which explains your obsession with Foxy news.
Reagan started the wage disparity with his Trickle Down Voodoo economics. Before Reagan the ratio of CEO to average worker pay was 30 times now it's around 300 times. Wages have been stagnant since Reagan and his tax breaks for the wealthy. Did you know Reagan raised taxes on Middle Class in seven of his eight years in office, including four times in just two years and 11 times over all.
You do understand the big jump in debt started with the golden boy, Ronald Reagan. The national debt increased by 186%. The debt increased by another 101% under George Bush. Obama not only inherited an economy in recession, two costly wars and the job market losing 800 THOUSAND jobs a month, he also inherited the interest from the previous administrations excessive debt as well. Facts speak louder than rhetoric.
Remember that VP candidate named Palin, your party didn't look too sharp elevating her to such a high position and how about the other wacko who was supported by many on the right for President. I think her name was Michele Bachmann.

Michele Bachmann Predicts Return of Jesus Due to Obama. Damn even Jesus is mad at the black Irishman.
" rated more than twice as hard as oak flooring"
You don't REALLY believe that do you! How can a soft wood be harder than a hard wood?
Many of the sales pitches will compare traditional bamboo floors to hardwood floors. One of the most common claims about bamboo flooring is that it is actually harder than hardwood floors. Some companies will even show statistics on the hardness of bamboo compared to hardwoods. Some make ridiculous claims like that "bamboo is actually harder than oak"! It obviously is quite softer than oak! Bamboo is not as hard as the floor manufacturers claim. A lot of people look at the Janka Hardness Test as a means to justify and explain the durability of bamboo flooring. If you look at many of the Janka Hardness Test online, you will see that bamboo largely fluctuates. It is actually rated at 1180 p.s.i. However, some tests put bamboo higher up in the Janka Hardness Test, making it appear stronger than it actually is. You should be very weary of these skewed test results, especially when they are coming from manufacturers who our out to sell you bamboo floor coverings. These manufacturers want to make bamboo look as hard as possible. A lot of the skewed results will test the hardest parts of the wood like the joints, edges and knots. (Bamboo doesn't have any knots but you get my drift.) Many people will bend the rules of the test to make bamboo look strong. They may use the highest quality bamboo even though most of the bamboo available to the public is young and soft.
" it is an engineered bamboo product. You know that technology thing so it will last about twice as long as an old fashion veneer."
As usual you are wrong, but it is your floor so go for it.
Carbonized bamboo is a flooring that has a carbonized finish. It has a dark, amber color. It is produced through a process called carbonization. The longer this process takes, the darker and softer the product will turn out. The traditional way to change the color of bamboo is with heat (carbonization). The sugar contents in the fiber cause the bamboo to darken when they are pressure heated. It is really important to note that pressure heating weakens the bamboo significantly. If you want long-lasting floors, carbonized bamboo is definitely not your answer!
There are two varieties of carbonized bamboo flooring; vertical carbonized bamboo flooring and horizontal bamboo flooring. The difference in these two varieties is their alignment. It is important to note that carbonized bamboo flooring is not designed for high traffic areas like shopping centers or office buildings. These floors are suited only for residential use.
Many people know that carbonized bamboo flooring is not very durable but they still want dark bamboo. A lot of floor manufacturers are coming out with a stained natural bamboo floor variety that is darker. The only reason consumers ever choose carbonized bamboo flooring is for its darker color. The majority of contractors (who are honest!) will advise against carbonized bamboo flooring simply because it is not strong and it will not last very long.
"So I am ready to lay down the 50 years carbonized bamboo flooring."
Hey Norris you might be confusing bamboo with Oak. Bamboo matures quickly in the 3 to 5 year range, at most 7 years while hardwoods like Oak take a lot longer typically up to 50 years. If it's bamboo leave a small gap up against the wall to allow for expansion or it could buckle, especially if it will be exposed to humidity. Your baseboard molding will cover the gap.
When comparing CEO-to-worker pay ratio, the multiple more than doubles when compared to minimum wage workers; the average CEO in 2013 out-earned this group 774 times over. Can you imagine a CEO making 774 times what a minimum wage earner makes! How do they sleep at night?
Would you rather go back to 2008 and an economy in recession losing 800 THOUSAND jobs each month? Don't forget the wide gap in CEO pay compared to the average worker started in 1980 with Reagans trickle down voodoo BS. In the 70's the ratio of CEO to average worker was about 30x now its 331X which equates to a CEO average salary of $11.7 million compared to the average worker’s $35,293. GW and his fake wars almost destroyed our economy. Bush was the ONLY US President in history to cut taxes (for the wealthy) not raise them during a war. He and Chaney should be charged for war crimes.
Remember that UBS sell a couple of weeks ago when Line was trading at around $11.50, too funny!
"Strong on High Relative Volume' stocks are worth watching because major volume moves tend to indicate underlying activity such as M&A events, material stock news, analyst upgrades, insider buying, buying from 'superinvestors,' or that hedge funds and momentum traders are piling into a stock ahead of a catalyst. Regardless of the impetus behind the price and volume action, when a stock moves with strength and volume it can indicate the start of a new trend on which early investors can capitalize. In the event of a well-timed trading opportunity, combining technical indicators with fundamental trends and a disciplined trading methodology should help you take the first steps towards investment success."
Well at least she gets out of the house and away from her keyboard every so often, maybe you should try it.

Sounds a lot like the board #$%$, Norris!
