I am a hold-out as well

Mr. gut warned me about data collection years ago.

Sanity is a relative state

#1 The center is a stack of Spider Man, the heart of Christ, Darth Vader and the Buddha. The stuff around them is alchemy.

#2 The head and shoulders of one of the Pokeman characters.

#3 A heel print, collected from the site of a crime.

We cut way down on vampire power

Many devices use some electricity even when they are not turned on. This is called vampire power or phantom power and is electricity used just because the unit is plugged in.

We get a rating each month that tells us what our usage is relative to our neighbors. We had drifted into the wasteful slob zone a few months back, so I got serious.

For our computers, I bought surge protectors that only allow electricity to accessories, like the desk light and printer, when the computer itself is turned on. For the cell phone chargers, we use small plugs that have timers on them, my I Phone charges to 98% in three hours if I let it get real low. So I set the little plug for three hours, it has a choice of 1/2, 3 or 6.

For the coffee maker and water pot, we have another plug that just switches off and on. In rooms that we don't use often, TVs/DVRs are unplugged unless in use. For the entertainment center like area, only the TV and cable box get constant power. The stereo and DVR are on the same surge protector, but they have a separate switch which I need to press manually.

Lots of little things can make a big difference

NRA should be the center of attention

Which is probably why this whole F&F thing started, when RW bloggers were incited to distract, misinform and preempt. Their false premise that this is a ploy to interfere with 2nd Amendment rights, is obstructionist because they have something to hide.

Repeated intense pressure and no hope for a better future.

While the reasons for the increase are not entirely understood, the army's own data suggest soldiers with multiple combat tours are at greater risk. But a portion of those taking their own life have never deployed, the figures show.

They face a horror that they don't have any comprehension of or even a glimmer of how to handle and I am guessing that there is no support for them and no relief in sight, so suicide looks like a way out.

Mitt Romney's Mormon Secrets (article)

Commentary | In all the extensive media coverage of Mitt Romney, much of it discussing his religion, not a word have I seen about the secrets of Mormonism, the secrets of Romney's life-long beliefs and practices. The reason, of course, is obvious: nobody can talk about a secret unless they are in on the secret. And few journalists or Christian ministers or anti-Mitt politicians are in on the secret. Only Mormons know the secrets, and they're not going to tell. And former Mormons, like myself, who were initiated into those same secrets, and afterwards left Mormonism - we know the secrets. Should we tell?

Here is the most important reason that a Mormon should not be POTUS, that person would not have the countries best interests in mind:
The "law of sacrifice" requires them to "covenant to sacrifice all that we possess, even our own lives if necessary, in sustaining and defending the Kingdom of God." Mormons understand "the kingdom of God" to be the Mormon church.

The question for American voters is: knowing that Romney has taken this secret oath, that he is a faithful Mormon, do you want him to answer the question "Would you feel bound by your sacred oath to obey the law of consecration that you made in the endowment ceremony and use the power of the presidency to benefit the Mormon church?"

Should it make a difference to you, the voter?

Read the article, Richard Packham gives us an inside look into the secret/sacred Mormon temple rituals.
