Anybody have a suggestion for a grub infestation? I finally broke down and razed the squash patch this weekend - it was too far gone.

Mine take twelve percent now, so sounds like a fantastic deal.

@30 - the taco already costs $10. You just don't pay for all of it; our tax dollars do - a minimum wage earning worker is going to qualify for aid, for which we all pay. This argument drives me crazy . . . it costs what it costs. I paid taxes to subsidize your purchase.

Every Democrat should vote present. Why insert yourself into a car wreck?

$700k to $800k isn't "a buck", Cienna. That's put my kids through Harvard money - I'd rip the wall off my building, too.

@2 - go back to watching Fox news. Yawn.

The sequester is gonna happen, so here's my question - why do you think Obama is stumping for it and issuing such dire warnings? If the strategy is to make sure the GOP owns the sequester and pays for it in the next election . . . that sounds a little bit like the GOP trying to screw the ecomomy for the past two years and hang it on Obama's neck. Seems kind of risky if it's not the catastrophe he's making it out to be.

@3 EXACTLY. Yesterday Walmart put out an earnings report; their spokesmant basically said no one is spending any money, and how could that be? Well, maybe it's because you don't pay people worth a damn, Walmart, and you've depressed wages across the spectrum . . . and that's exactly what would happen if libraries were shuttered. The customer base for books would dwindle. Dreary is a dipshit, Paul's right.

We have to start doing better by these guys - at UPS you're vested after 5 years and eligible for a small pension, but in the military it's 20 or nothing. They guy could flesh out his twenty with reserve time, but there's every chance he'd be called up at some point. As far as healthcare . . . move to IL and enroll in vetscare.

But the truth is the guy's got almost no skills that translate to civilian jobs. After 10 years in they ought to get partial pensions. If you can have something to show for slinging boxes, you ought to have something to show for being a SEAL.
