    Looks like healthcare is a go.

    You are obviously making it up cause if you really wanted that life you could do it--places in Montana and Idaho dont have any of that stuff so go.

    Looks like healthcare is a go.

    Read the bill-they aint giving health care away free in this---all the people who go to emergencey rooms because they cant get health care or wont. can now get it-in fact if they dont theirs a fine--so fewer emergency room visits, lower costs, IF Those savings are passed on to us by the companies that have been ripping us off all along

    2700 pages of triple spaced, large font---the people who are telling you this stuff are not telling you the truth, turn it into a book, its about 3-400 pages

    Freedom of Speech Granted to Corporate Entities

    Actually this is not quite true. What the decision does is allow corporations and unions, etc, to spend as much as they want supporting or bashing candidates through commercials, billboards, newspaper adds etc. Their contributions to individual candidates campaigns are still governed by the original campaign laws. Of course what this means is nothing--the politicians will still get down on their knees for free adds. The only thing we can do is watch to see has the most and best TV commercials and vote against them--we should all vote against the incumbents this next voting cycle anyway, doing this would put some control over things back where it belongs-in our hands>

    AMD Phenom II X4 965

    I just finished my build on an MSi GD70--stock cooler ran 50-55* changing thast out for a Xigmatek Thors Hammer without fans brought them down to 40-45
  14. I like Amd--for anyone who's interested-In researching the 790FX I saw some RAM issues, not posting, not doing anything. I used Crucial 1333 4 gigs and four Saphire 5750 GPU's and had no problem-right out of the boxes. I also used a Thors Hammer and got 15c drop over the stock-without fans
