Yes, I live in Illinois, the bastion of right wingers that has the highest unemployment and job displacements in the nation.

And you conveniently ignore that all the people now covered under healthcare, were covered under healthcare before the obamanation healthcare act. The only difference now is the middle class lost and had have to shell out craptons of cash now.

Revisionist history noted...

Funny how the media was in a hotel right there at the same time and weren't considered as "Hostage Material".

But since we are talking about recent "revelations" Are you saying Bush was right to go in and get rid of the WMD's that Saddam actually had? Or are we just going by your revisions to History?

Oh, in case you need to read some old news

http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9609/...

Clinton (in addition to setting up disastrous financial policy - the removal of the Glassâ"Steagall Legislation that is still having disastrous repercussions to the economy today) Was shooting at and Bombing Iraq all the way thru his administration.

Stop relying on Wiki. Do your own research. Read the old news stories and State of the Union addresses.

Oh, and BTW -
Obama did one major thing that both Clinton and Carter should be happy about.

He took the mantle of the worst American President in History (by a narrow margin).

No, I was awake the whole time and following the whole bit with the no fly zone the entire time after Clinton and Saddam's tossing out of the inspectors before the coalition resumed aggression.

You do realize that the bombing Clinton was doing (like hitting aspirin factories) was because there never was a cessation to the gulf war at the time?

Or are you just a revisionist frantically painting "I hate Bush" on the entire middle east conflict?

What you are failing to say is that the people who got free healthcare without paying for it are now officially getting free healthcare without paying for it at the cost of higher costs for people falling out of the middle class, or the middle class losing healthcare.

I too got healthcare under obamacare. . I've been looking for a job for 13 months and am now on foodstamps. I used to make 85,000 a year and had a really good healthcare policy that was covered by my former employer.

I am in firm support of the tree of Liberty getting watered soon.

Obama got his citiizens more access to healthcare.

Wow.

So you think this is the reality? Do you live in America, or have any American friends ? If anything, Obama made previous healthcare covered citizens scramble to pay higher costs, receive less coverage, or pay fines because the employer supported healthcare coverage stopped, and the cost of getting it too prohibitive to be feasible.

Bill-denomination is something that's interested me for awhile actually; it seems from my limited view of time like in the United States, the $20 has been the standard bill for 30+ years.

As far back as I can remember, $20 has been the denomination dispensed by nearly all ATMs. A handful of ATMs might mix in $50 or $100 bills for larger total amounts (Wells Fargo has some that do $20s and $50s, but most of theirs still just do $20s), and there were some ATMs outside the student union that used to dispense $5 bills (this was at UNLV in the early '90s), but most of the time, you'll get $20s.

The point of ISPs extorting money out of companies like Netflix is to serve one of two goals. 1) Gain more profit for doing less work or 2) kill off the services if such costs make them unprofitable. Then, the competing service said ISP offers (or "exclusive" service contracted in) will be the only one available for those ISP customers to purchase. Win/Win for the ISP, and a loss for all of us, since one often does NOT pick their provider.

I don't know how right handed people do it, but as lefty, I wear my watch on my left hand

You're doing it wrong. :-) You put your watch on the non-writing wrist. I'm right-handed, and I've always worn watches on the left. If I wore them on the right, the wristband would've scraped against the paper or the desk as I was writing.

Then again, who needs a watch anymore when your cellphone shows network-synchronized time that never needs adjustment?

Who makes the copy? Does the receiver go onto the physical hard drive of the offering server and read each of those relevant bits itself, or does the offering system, perhaps a web server or bit torrent client, read the file (or file segment(s)) and make the copy, sending them across the wire to the requesting system? Regardless whether or not the requester initiated the copy, the distributor's agent (be it program or person) made the copy to send. The requester (or requester's agent) received and recorded what was sent to it. At most you can say it was a two-party offence, though I would not see it that way.

It seems logical that the offending party is the one OFFERING and SENDING, not receiving, the copy.
