In 2007, Microsoft paid for a 1.6% share of Facebook for $240 million, indicating that the Facebook value was somewhere around $15.1 Billion. By your statement, we would have to believe that Facebook went from $600 million in 2010 to somewhere in the area of $15 Billion in 2012. Check your facts and figures.
Where is the $634,000,000 number coming from? Curious, yesterday I read on Facebook that it was $634 Trillion.
The fact of the matter is Ms. McMorris Rogers was elected to Congress by the people of this district. She was elected to serve as OUR representative. She is currently representing John Boehner and the far right faction of the Republican party. She is not representing all the people of her district back home. For the first time in her tenure people are actually paying attention to her votes and her attitude because she places herself over the right shoulder of John Boehner every time he steps to the podium. It is embarrassing to know that she has voted against our kids, our military, our civilian federal workers and our farmers and completely denies her responsibility for the situation that arises from those votes.
Thomas Sowell's opinion, like so many others. Speaking as if he has a direct line to the minds of 535 congressional representatives and senators. Really?
The President did not order the closing of national parks. The Republican House furloughed the federal employees. In order to attempt to cover, they have decided that they will provide pay retroactive to the shutdown. The shutdown is reported to be costing approximately $200 million a day. This isn't about the debt or saving money.
The very best question is number 3. If this was going to do all the things Republicans are screaming about, plus destroy this President's legacy, I guarantee they would be lining up to move it through without a peep.
namvet: What is your source for a 500 billion dollar tax hike? The savings by removing luxury coverage under medicare was a cost benefit to the taxpayers and a cut in the extra money going to insurance companies. Medicare Advantage was costing 14% more than standard medicare and it was all going to insurance companies, not to medical care.
namvet: Are you just rambling or are you ridiculing the professionals who serve (government employees) the military; veterans and all manner of citizens? Are they to be expected to do the work without compensation, thus they would be less disgraceful to you? One has to wonder, in what manner, you present to receive your government subsidies.
Show me the polls, please
Thank you, Jeff, for all the memories.
