    100,000 gals over what period of time , an hour , a day , a week ,a month . One dripping faucet , wastes 3,000 gals a year . How many people live in that town .
    Pros say 1 Trillion gallons wasted every year across the country . Leave it to the governments to spend millions to investigate common sense.

    I am sorry , if you look further up the road on the left where the narrator stops the video , you will see many such dark areas all shapes and sizes . I would have to call this questionable at best.

    I agree Ithinklam , it looks like Propane . You can see the source above and behind the wall , where the fire ended up after the explosion. As mentioned above it does seem that the green car underneath started the fire , I wonder if it was the catalytic converter set it off .

    Frame 35 Stewarts wheels are turned right , frame 36 the car was at a 30 degree angle pointing at the wall , as he applied gas to swing the rear away form Ward . If Stewart was trying to hit Ward , he would have gone straight , or been angled toward the infield .

    I am not sure , but doesnt it sound like Ward hit the wing on the blue 45 car with his fist , as it went by , and then again on Stewarts car just before the engine revved and the back end swung away from him .

    First off , for track safety , Ward had no business getting out of his car till track officials were at the crash site and the race stopped or slowed under yellow or red flag.
    Second his bump into the wall was a result of Ward driving aggressively and putting the nose of his car where it should not have been coming into a turn . Sprint cars all drift out in the rear going into a turn .
    Third It appears to me watching the accident several times , Ward was getting as close to Stewart as he could wagging his fist . I believe Stewart was afraid of hitting Ward with his rear tire that sticks out , he then cut the wheel to the right , and gunned the engine to swing the rear away from Ward . You can see just before Ward was struck , the back of Stewarts car swings toward the infield and away from Ward. Its not entirely clear but that why there will be an investigation .
    I can say this , no driver intentionally hits another driver outside of his car , particularly Stewart .

    We have two serious possible enemies in this world China and Russia . We buy our military electronics from China and defense rocket engines from Russia . And we pay these insane fools , issuing those contracts , to run our country ? If we got into a war our missiles would fall into the sea , and we would be able to call any one to tell the Pentagon .

    I agree completely , bringing the danger here is total incompetence. My point HERE…
    In 2012 there was a study involving pigs and macaques. The animals were contained in separate cages. Physical contact was impossible. They were however in close proximity and the pigs managed to infect the monkeys with Ebola. How could that be?

    We are putting our trust in a government organization , the CDC , that say they will be able to manage this person as he arrives infected from Africa. An organization that was just in the news last month for the complete lack of management and safety procedures , in regard to Anthrax , Small Pox and Bird Flue left laying around in an unsecured areas , small pox for decades
    From the crisis management center :
    Unfortunately, the CDC dropped the ball big time in late June when internal failures led to more than 80 lab workers being exposed to live anthrax. Yes, you read that right – live anthrax. That’s not all, though. Investigators also discovered an unreported incident that saw a high-security CDC lab accidentally send samples containing a dangerous strain of bird flu to researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in March. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, this month saw the discovery of six vials of smallpox in an unsecured room at the National Institute of Health, including two containing live strains of the deadly virus.
    The CDC has stated that “multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies” led to the worrisome slip-ups, but there are signs of a deeper issue as well. According to CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden, the bird flu incident was not reported to agency leadership at all.

    Another thing that continues to happen , when you have an important bill that needs attention , both the Congress and the Senate tack as many controversial bills as possible onto it . This not only delays or defeats a necessary bill but makes separating the various parts for correction or elimination next to impossible without fear of changing all the passed bills. This causes the creation of non targeted , very broad laws that can be interpreted many ways and thus ineffective. We need to put a stop to this practice . You see its not always the laws that are the problem , but the way our government functions and that we can easily change with a few well targeted laws limiting how our government operates . Like a balance budget law , and instituting the use of standard budget reporting replacing the useless method used now.

    When our government was formed , it intentionally had no power . It was to provide for the defense of the nation as a whole , and maintain the US Mail service across the country . All matters of governing would be handled by the states, as every states citizens had individual needs and not all states had the same needs. If the Nation , required a necessary law equally beneficial to all the states , our state representatives would create the best possible solution for all states , like the National Highway system connecting the States . You have heard this a million times , but here is what has happened over time . Its realy simple , and easily fixed over time .
    Our government has changed the narrative from , the government has no power unless given by our elected officials . Only exactly what is spelled out in the law is what is permitted , no interpretation nothing added , and can only be changed by repeal , or minor changes agreed by all representatives. If there is no law there is no government powers.
    What has changed is , the government now claims absolute power and it takes a law to limit that power . The government can do anything as long as there is no law forbidding it. This requires millions of laws , and its not humanly possible to cover all angles of an assumed power to limit its interpretation. The law becomes a matter of interpretation and therefore ineffective at limiting any power . All we need to do change the way government uses the laws we provide.

    The Constitution provides no tools for suing the President , and there is no precedent ever in our history of that ever being done . So is it even within the Houses Constitutional authority , to attempt such a lawsuit , or is this just a claim to try and rally the Republican base before elections , and will actually never happen .

    Only four times in our history, has Congress held serious discussions of impeachment:
    1) Andrew Johnson was actually impeached when Congress became unhappy with the way he was dealing with some post-Civil War matters, but Johnson was acquitted in the Senate by one vote and remained in office.
    2) Congress introduced a resolution to impeach John Tyler over state’s rights issues, but the resolution failed.
    3) Congress was debating his impeachment over the Watergate break-in when President Richard Nixon resigned.
    4) William J. Clinton was impeached by the House on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in relationship to his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was eventually acquitted by the Senate.

    I want to see Obama gone as much as anyone , but here are the facts of life and why Democrats are so sure Impeachment wont happen , they are using the threat to fund raise from the blind noinfo voters. There intention is to make you so angry at the Republicans , you will stay at home in Nov and they win . In the recent Primaries only 14% of the voting public bothered to vote . If that happens in Nov the Progressives win . Congress has an approval rating under 20% , the Progressives have also been pretty effective at making that number stick , and your anger kept high . We are being used and we need to recognize it . Stop demanding Impeachment and make sure everyone votes in Nov. then cut off Obamas money source for the last two years. Thats what he is really afraid of .
    The Senate is controlled by Democrats and they will not vote to impeach , you can take to the bank that has been well planned prior to taking on this tactic . I might also add that after the Nov. election , even if we picked up 10 seats , the Democrats left in office will have no threat to urge them to vote out Obama . For those screaming for Impeachment , you need to have 67 seats in the Senate , Conservatives and Republicans currently have 45 , so if it is going to happen you will need flip 22 seats or convince a lot of Democrats its in their best interest , to do something thats never been done before , in the history of our country .

    Having lived and worked in Miami , I can say there is a massive police presence visible there . I did not feel uncomfortable with the crime situation , although in the poorer Latin communities crime was in the news on a regular basis , I expect the police had their hands full . I have a suggestion to lower the budget deficit . In a garage belonging to the city there are , I have witnessed a year ago , some 300 or 400 electric hybrid city vehicles , been there since 2006 . They have never been used , due to the lack of dependability of having to be charged all the time . They are all sitting painted white , in a rows doing nothing , $4 million in excess purchases , maybe an auction is in line . Originally there were over 1000 vehicles sitting there , till word leaked out and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez had to create a good story , typical progressive BS.

    Intel Committee Chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said after the briefing that National Deputy Security Adviser Tony Blinken called her Monday night “apologizing” for failing to notify lawmakers sooner.“He apologized for it and said it was an oversight,” Feinstein said.

    One day maybe constitutes an oversight or the like . The law says 30 days , thats far from an oversight

    The “bill before us today is a fake solution and provides no real fix to the fundamental problems at the VA. Its stated purpose is to hold senior level employees accountable by giving the VA Secretary the authority to terminate them at-will,” he said Wednesday before the final House vote.
    EXACTLY

    The 33 names are all well known , I am surprised the other 50 Communists in their party voted for the bill . Someone needs to inform these idiots its not Congress job to fix this problem . It is the job of the various VA heads in each of the hospitals to fix the problems within their control . First we need to get rid of Eric K. Shinseki , he has not done his job , and not dealt with this problem since he took office 2009 . The next Secretaries job will be to fire every head of every VA hospital guilty of this practice , the people who take their place will have a given amount of time to show positive verifiable progress or they are out of a job , and so on . It is Congresses job in one bill , to remove the union and military red tape , and make very simple for the new Secretary to make sure all the firings go without delay . We dont need any committees , no political bickering , and huge delays , in fact Congress has other things to take care of , that should be addressed in a similar manner .
