Cause this is the kind of market regulation the US needs, and not single-payer health care. At least these kinds of people are consistent on killing. Killing progress, and people, all while making a killing.

Okay, who wants to explain to me how a 10% reduction in pig production ends up doubling the price? Also, my bacon from the food co-op will remain the exact same price until demand gets so crazy that each pig is worth about as much as a Ferrari.
Wery well! I stand corrected. Makes me wonder why I thought what I did though, and I how I found the information that I did. A MYSTERY FOR ANOTHER DAY.
Yeah, cause the US allows you to hold dual-citizenship in a nation you weren't born in/claimed before you turned 18. Wait... The other thing. Or is that only a rule for poor people?
I actually used to work there and everything besides the pizza is frozen and simply thawed. I'm going for the shirt and the company, but I would 100% support a change of location (especially since there's only 6 of us so far) Maybe Cottage Inn instead? (Or grizzly peak, for better beer)
Today I was visiting the USPTO, for a high level meeting on global negotiations on intellectual property and access to medicine. The meeting was held in the Stockholm Room, on the 2nd floor of the USPTO library, at the main USPTO building at 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, VA. The USPTO also uses these meeting rooms for its Global Intellectual Property Academy (GIPA). The USPTO offers free Wifi for the visitors. But when I tried to login to http://keionline.org/ I received this message:

We checked and found that the USPTO blocks access to a number of groups that have followed SOPA and the TPP intellectual property negotiations, particularly those critical of the USPTO positions on intellectual property issues. Among the NGOs that were blocked were aclu.org, cdt.org, citizen.org, eff.org, healthgap.org, keionline.org and publicknowledge.org. Among the sites NOT BLOCKED were the industry lobby groups BSA, MPPA, RIIA, and PhRMA."

The TPP is called a "trade agreement,' but in actuality it is a long-dreamed-of template for implementing a binding system of global corporate governance as bold as anything the world's wealthiest elite has attempted before. Of the 26 chapters under negotiation, only a few have to do directly with trade. The other chapters enshrine new rights and privileges for major corporations while weakening the power of nation states to oppose them. The TPP essentially proposes to establish a parallel system of justice where companies can sue countries in a tribunal of judges composed of unaccountable international trade lawyers with little to no process for appeal.
According to a paper published in PLoS One, the Lesula monkey (Cercopithecus lomamiensis) is a novel species of guenon monkeys, which are endemic to sub-Saharan Africa. Lesulas are medium-sized, slim monkeys with long arms and legs, and are notable for their surprisingly blond facial hair and incredibly human-like faces.
Prior surveys have shown that the region is incredibly biodiverse with respect to primate, with “11 species or distinctive subspecies of anthropoid primates” in the region. The discovery that lesulas are themselves a distinct species adds credence to the fact that the region is a primate hotspot, and the study authors note that the region needs an appropriate conservation strategy to protect that biodiversity."

Tolkien is good for kids, though by eight years old he may already be spoiled by television's constant action to thoroughly enjoy his works. Then again, the hobbit has songs and quite a bit of mostly family friendly action so thats still a good choice. I read Jurassic Park in first grade, but it took me all year and I was obscenely obsessed with dinosaurs, so I may already have been where you want your son to be.
I would also suggest books by Terry Pratchett -- namely The Wee Free Men, which is a great story from a child's point of view, is hilarious to read (even for you) and has two sequels that are very much in the same vein. The books are easily readable, and reasonably quick. (200 some pages)
