“I personally have deep convictions about my children having a financially stable country that they can live in. I want my daughters to have the opportunities that I had, and that's what concerns me. That's what keeps me up awake at night, not worrying about who's sleeping with who.

The MetLife blimp is equipped with a gyro-stabilized camera mounted on the nose of the gondola. A zoom lens provides up to 80x magnification. This enables the MetLife blimp to capture television shots that can track a golf ball down a fairway or identify the number on the back of a player's jersey.

"Once the workplace opened up to American women, things have never been the same," said Palm Beach County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor, the keynote speaker. "We are the engine for growth and we're catching up. Women-owned businesses are growing at twice the rate. More than 40 percent of micro loans are going to women."

Hey folks, as you may have read in the newspaper, I am running for State Senate for the open seat that covers Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach, amongst others. Right now, I'm the only candidate filed in the race.
I need your help. Saturday is the end of the quarter, and I need to try to convince others not to run in this race. Simply put, I need money.
If you have any ability to write a check, or put together a series of checks, I would be greatly appreciative. Even if it's small, anything would help.
The per person, per business contribution limit is $500. But anything is great. Ask your good Democratic friends too!
Even though he does not know it yet, Herman Robinson has volunteered to be a central collection point for these checks at his home on Ocean Breeze (thanks Herman!), or you can get them directly to me, my contact info is below. We need them by Saturday morning, folks.
Thanks, every one of you.
Send a fax to Sen. Rubio and express concern with the article in the Hill. Tell him that any amnesty for illegal aliens is just plain wrong when 20 million Americans cannot find a full-time job.

A solid majority of Americans think the U.S. government should approve of building the Keystone XL pipeline, while 29% think it should not. Republicans are almost twice as likely as Democrats to want the government to approve the oil pipeline. About half of independents also approve. Read the Gallup Poll.
Before government subsidies for the giant metals were cut or eliminated in many areas, wind farms were an energy boom business. But in the post-tax subsidy era, the costs of maintaining and operating wind turbines far outweighs the minimal power they generate in many areas, which has left a patchwork of wind turbine graveyards in many of the most popular wind farming areas of the US.

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has gathered data on a region-by-region basis to identify the nation’s wind-energy resource.The results of this effort are contained in the Wind Energy Resource Atlas of the United States. The Southeast region consists of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina.
“There is little wind energy potential in the Southeast region for existing wind turbine applications (Zabransky et al. 1981). Even along coastal areas, existing data from exposed sites indicate at best only class 2 at 50 m (164 ft) above ground. The only places in the Southeast region estimated to have class 3 or higher annual average wind resource are the exposed ridge crests and mountain summits confined to northeastern Georgia and extreme northwestern South Carolina.”
Did we eliminate that one wind tower on our beach redevelopment? We waste more money in this country on "trains to nowhere."
How come you bloody liberals aren't screaming bloody murder?
At the same time, White House officials are wary of doing anything ahead of next week’s Supreme Court hearings that could be read as trying to influence the justices. The White House fears that even if events were tied to the second anniversary, they would be framed by the media as related to the court hearings, where the individual mandate to buy insurance—the heart of the law—is being challenged."
