Just try to get on a plane with a name misspelled on the boarding pass...... just for kicks, you might try it. Won't get you anywhere. That is why those two words were capitalized.

Well, that was just an example of the fact that it's all outdated. The building has outlived it's lifespan, was really the point I was making. Any "improvements" are just stuck on with duct tape and staple guns (or so it seems).

It's going to be interesting when the pot "cultivation centers" get up and running. We'll be arresting people for doing something themselves that when licensed by the state is legal. Kinda like arresting bars for little back-room poker tournaments while state-sanctioned casinos rake in millions. I can't distill my own vodka for my own use in Illinois without paying the state an $1800…

House GOP appropriators plan to withhold funding to enforce greenhouse gas rules

House Republicans say they may try to block the EPA's proposed greenhouse-gas rule

From by DTN AgDay:

House Republicans say they may try to block the Environmental Protection Agency's proposed greenhouse-gas (GHG) rule for power plants by denying the funding to implement it, according to Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, a senior member of a House Appropriations Committee. Funding for EPA is included in the Interior-Environment appropriations bill which is being drafted by an Appropriations subcommittee.

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., has pointed out that House Democrats will vote overwhelmingly to oppose GOP attempts to drop funding for the GHG rules. "The overwhelming majority of our party is going to support [funding the effort] and the Senate's not going to pass a repeal" of the regulation, he said. "Nor will the president sign it."

It is unlikely that Congress would be able to roll-back EPA's carbon emissions proposal. But it is highly likely that Republicans will construct a procedure that will require Democrats to go on the record as either opposing or supporting the new GHG rules. Such votes then could be used as ammunition in next November's mid-term elections.
