Re: Control Panel: Contradictions?

Re: Keystone XL not economic?

MrCheeryO

Is importing oil from Canada not a good thing? I would rather import it from Canada than from the Middle East.

Re: OT: Sugar's effects on health

Problem With Firefox and .PDF Files

For some reason my FireFox won't open ".pdf" files directly and I have to choose another option such as IE. Safari, on the other hand, will open .pdf files directly. Is this just me or does everyone have this problem?

Re: Why isn't low gas prices good for economy
