NASA3,047,299Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008295

Corporate supermarkets introduce self-checkouts to save wage money in a country that was settled as a penal colony. What could possibly go wrong?
The comments are quite entertaining too, with more than one person suggesting that the penalty for shoplifting a loaf of bread be transportation to England, which in all honesty, looks a lot like a penal colony itself, these days.

"The corollary is that Trump is ripe to be played. Give the boy a lollipop and he won’t notice if you steal his lunch. The Japanese gave Trump a new jobs announcement he could take to the Midwest, and in return they got presidential attention and coddling that other governments would have died for.

TALKING POINTS

* Planned Parenthood provides a wide array of healthcare services for women, including contraception, prenatal care, pregnancy tests, breast cancer screening and so on.
* Closing PP clinics frequently means NO health care clinics available for many poor women. This becomes a taxpayer cost when they land indigent in local emergency rooms.
* Most of PP federal monies come from reimbursement through the medicare program.
* The Hyde Amendment already prohibits federal monies used toward abortion.
* Of PP's budget, 3% goes toward abortion (again, none of which is federally funded). So cutting PP funding will mostly eliminate OTHER vital services, NOT abortion at all.
* Multiple national polls show strong support for PP
* Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Dean Heller (R-Nevada) may be vulnerable in upcoming elections. If they are your senators, definitely point this out.

Planned Parenthood made the following observation, which I think is quite true:
“Defunding” Planned Parenthood is a misnomer. Their true intent is to block millions of people who rely on Medicaid from PP health centers. <https://twitter.com/PPact/status/817083691906244608>

You may be put on hold for a bit, but eventually you should be connected with a staffer and be able to speak your piece. Remember, BE POLITE as these folks are probably being overwhelmed with calls.

I recommend writing down what you want to say before calling. Having at least a list of the points you want to mention will help make the call go smoothly and efficiently. And, again, BE POLITE.


ISSUE

Congressional Republicans have tried for years to zero out all federal funding for Planned Parenthood because the group provides abortion services. The issue helped trigger a 16-day government shutdown in 2013, and Democrats and President Barack Obama insisted any provision targeting the group be removed from a bill to fund federal agencies.

Another effort to defund the group will spur another high-profile clash and could be a tough vote for some moderate Republicans such as Maine Sen. Susan Collins and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who has opposed past efforts.

The vast majority of federal money that Planned Parenthood does receive funds preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests, breast cancer screening and other womens health care services. Democrats also point out that much of the money the group received is through the Medicaid program, which reimburses health care clinics that provide care to those covered by the federal program.

Under the "Hyde amendment" that is attached to annual funding bills, no federal money is allowed to go to programs that include abortion services, unless they are needed to preserve the life of the mother or are caused by rape.

Democrats immediately denounced the news that Republicans again were working to bar future federal funds for Planned Parenthood.
"This is a priority for the Republicans," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Thursday afternoon. "So I just would like to speak individually to women across America: this is about respect for you, for your judgment about your personal decisions in terms of your reproductive needs, the size and timing of your family or the rest, not to be determined by the insurance company or by the Republican ideological right-wing caucus in the House of Representatives. So this is a very important occasion where we're pointing out very specifically what repeal of the (Affordable Care Act) will mean to woman."

Not a new story, but a classic example of how rich white men can commit even the most horrific abuse of those society considers their "property", & get nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended.

It looks a lot like Jason Chaffetz is in Trump's pocket.
But with minority representation on the committee, they lack the power to subpoena any agency officials or documents. Only the committee's chairman, Jason Chaffetz, can do that.
For his part, Chaffetz seems to have a different set of priorities altogether. The day after Trump announced he would not be divesting from his businesses, Chaffetz threatened to subpoena not the president, nor any of his family members or business associates – but rather the director of the federal Office of Government Ethics for saying Trump's plan to hand over his business to his children was ethically insufficient.

Remember the dramatic claims that a large gang of dark skinned refugees/migrants in Germany sexually assaulted many women during New Years Eve celebrations? Well, it turns out that it didn't happen, & the story is completely fictional.

On February 6, Bild reported claims that women were attacked by a 50-strong group of "Arabic and North African looking men", at the city's Fressgass nightspot. The group were also said to have stolen drinks and clothing, and thrown bottles and fireworks.
The newspaper headlined its story "37 days after New Year's Eve, victims break their silence – sex mob in the Fressgass". Another report put the size of the fictional mob of "mostly drunk refugees" at 900.

In case you weren't already convinced that Pence is an evil piece of shit.

Interesting reading about a man, wrongly convicted of a crime, cleared by DNA evidence multiple times, witnesses admit that they were coerced by Police into giving questionable or in some manner, completely false testimony..
but.. the then State Governor, refused even after a mountain of evidence, to pardon the guy..
A new Governor is sworn in and within weeks, a full pardon is issued..
The thing that interested me most of all was in one quote by the former Governor of Indiana, one, Mike Pence on why he refused to pardon the innocent man.
“A pardon based on innocence requires a governor to substitute his judgement for that of the judicial branch,”

Interesting that now, as the Vice President of America working under Lord Dampnut, Pence has no difficulty questioning the work of the Courts and its appointed Judges with regard to a muslim ban.. rejected by the courts..

And now we know the real reason why Trump called AG Sally Yates "disloyal" when he fired her:
"First, in a Dec. 29 phone call, Flynn secretly hinted to Russia’s ambassador that sanctions imposed by President Obama—to punish Russia for intervening in the presidential election—might be relaxed once Donald Trump took office. Later, Flynn told Vice President Mike Pence and others in the administration that in that phone call, he hadn’t discussed sanctions with the ambassador. Then, on Jan. 26, Acting Attorney General Sally Yates presented evidence of Flynn’s deception —based on U.S. intelligence transcripts of Flynn’s calls—to Trump’s White House counsel, Don McGahn."

It's a little known fact outside the industry, but fuel stations make very little money from the fuel itself; the serious profit is in all the crap you buy when you go inside to pay, etc. Knowing that, a recharging stop where you're stuck on the premises for at least an hour is a recipe for profit, so free charging stations make a hell of a lot of sense.

This is a perfect description of Cheeto Hitler's campaign & administration:
“Modern dictatorships have become far more sophisticated still in how to achieve their ends,” Kasparov said. “They learned that by constant bombardment, your senses become overwhelmed. You start to doubt, to shrug your shoulders, to tune out, and that makes you vulnerable. Instead of pushing one lie, one fake, they can push a dozen, or a hundred, and that’s pretty good odds against one lonely truth. They win when you say: ‘Who can be sure what really happened?’”

If nothing else, at least the quotes in this article provide a refreshing break from hypocrisy. The argument against hate-crimes laws which include sexual orientation is simple: these laws are a Trojan horse. If they prevent us from beating and killing people, next they'll prevent us from discriminating against them as well.

The "First Amendment Defense Act" (a bill just as disturbing as its faux-patriotic title implies) follows a similar vein: the idea is that discrimination against the LGBTQ community is such a fundamental tenet of people's religious faith that it requires special protection; no law must ever touch it.

This is just a sample of the sort of vile world that men like Mike Pence and James Dobson [eliding the curses which go with their names] mean to create: one in which hatred is elevated to a holy value, and their sick parody of Christianity is a state religion.___

Corporate supermarkets introduce self-checkouts to save wage money in a country that was settled as a penal colony. What could possibly go wrong?
The comments are quite entertaining too, with more than one person suggesting that the penalty for shoplifting a loaf of bread be transportation to England, which in all honesty, looks a lot like a penal colony itself, these days.

“What if they had spent part of that money on building up their infrastructure, helping white-collar and blue-collar workers? You’re supposed to spend money on your own people.”
