Revitol Stretch Mark Cream Review.
On the official site theres some honesty about exactly what to expect, with the admission that total removal of stretch marks will probably not occur. Theres also the admission that with Revitol, preventative measures work best. A pregnant woman is advised to start using it in the early stages of pregnancy. If a woman doesnt consider buying Revitol until after shes had the baby, shes advised to not hesitate. The makers concede that the product works best on the newer, deeply-hued scars.

No such thing as bad press. And free advertising is free advertising, even if the target may be a bit off. The more that see their message the more that will have them in their memory if someone asks. Whatever, it is way off topic and should be removed.

Congratulations. Now go tell your wife that you think she needs stretch mark cream after all that and see how well it goes.

Or are they posting it becaus they knew you would be in the market for it.

Boy or girl? Congratulations either way.

Oh look, another $1 Billion in loan guarantees to solar power companies:

Did I mention the one who got over $700 million is run by Nancy Pelosi's Brother-in-Law?

Let's stick to the facts and what we know.

We know that Bush denied Solyndra's application in Jan. 2009. It seems as if Bush was much smarter than Obama in this particular instance.

We also know that "President Barack Obamas aides pressured White House budget officials to complete a review of a $535 million U.S. loan guarantee to Solyndra LLC, a solar-panel maker that has filed for bankruptcy protection, according to a U.S. House committee report based on e-mails and documents.".

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-0...-decision.html

The Solyndra scandal is bad news for Obama, not just on an economic level because of the money lost, wasted and possibly stolen from the American people, but it's also a blow to his naive and juvenile "Green jobs" plan, which is proving to be a real dud, a jobs killer, a total waste of money and a colossal failure.

Obama made to many promises which he could not live up to.Maybe he will try to adjust his attitude and policies to gain the public's support once again. His is leaning to far to the right by kissing the Republicans ass constantly!

Right...nothing to see here. Just move on. And that 1 billion in guarantees? I'm sure there's no chance of the companies failing.

Beyond that, consider the political stupidity of our President. Taxpayers just got bilked out of $500 million due to the administration's obsession with green energy and making it look like the stimulus was working. Now, we approve ANOTHER billion? Like...less than a month after Solyndra? Man, that takes some real cojones.

Worse still: Why the hell should taxpayers be on the hook for this green wet dream? The government is putting a billion on "black" in Roulette and screaming "let it ride!!!!." Except it's not their money, it's ours.

Pelosi's kin has absolutely nothing to to with the investment into the company being funded. The investment happened before he joined the investment firm, and comes from a fund that he is not a part of. The whole "PELOSI" thing is just red (herring) meat to fuel the Perpetual Outrage Machine for Republicans like you. That's why it was pulled from Drudge's site after only a few hours - it's purely trumped-up BS.

Waitaminnit - so putting good policy ahead of politics is a BAD thing?

If anything, I'd think that you'd hope that your Republican heroes took a cue from him, and stopped basing every single decision and position on what is the most politically advantageous to them at the moment.

If you don't understand why having alternatives to oil and being competitive in the world marketplace with developing technology is highly desirable, I'm not going to take the time to try to explain it here. It would be a waste of my time, obviously.

Never mind that comparing this company to Solyndra is an apples & oranges play:

SolarReserve is a better bet than a manufacturing company like Solyndra, since it's a power generation company that has contractual offsets.

It doesn't matter. The perception is the problem, especially after Solyndra. I'm not claiming that he personally benefited. It simply looks terrible.

Dude, welcome to the real world, where "good policy" and "bad policy" are not black and white, and where politics matters...especially for a guy running for reelection with 9% unemployment.

You're living in a fucking fantasy world. We cannot power the nation on wind and solar. These are ancillary technologies that while useful, are not things we can spend tens of billions on while ignoring our own conventional resources. The idea that the government will jump start the "green economy" is a liberal wet dream. Meanwhile, we're killing innovation in natural gas, oil, coal and nuclear...all things that can benefit us in terms of energy independence right now.

Yeah, except that the "politics" of it is all being trumped up. And it's such a tenuous (at best) link that even a partisan hack like Drudge ran awaaaaay from it after only a few hours of blowing it up on his front page.

Do you honestly expect me to believe that this is going to change anyone's vote? Should I believe there is a possibility you'd vote for Obama except for the "perception" that there's something wrong with this deal?


But, hey - that whole "politics of personal destruction" thing worked out great against Clinton, so I hope your side keeps it up!

Isn't "diversification" one of the most important strategies for any long-term investment plan?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_p..._States#Growth

The "fantasy world" is that we can solve our energy problems by drilling and fracking everything in sight (is not doing that how we're "killing innovation", BTW?). Never mind climate change or acid rain or smog - the next generation is in for a very rude awakening if it thinks we can continue to meet our ever-growing energy needs with the current mix of ever-shrinking energy sources. The fossil fuels are NOT going to last forever. Nuclear expansion is now dead in the water, like it or not. So the right-wing solution is to laugh at other nations of the world as they eat our lunch in utilizing and expanding solar technology?

And the longer we keep all our energy eggs in that basket, the more dependent we are on other countries - including the very stable and very friendly Middle Eastern ones.

If that's what I saw, it would concern me. But that's not even close to what anyone can see WRT Solyndra except someone with a bias problem.

Taxation is theft. Therefore, Halliburton took stolen money in exchange for it's services. In addition, they have helped the U.S. government carry out its immoral and bloody foreign policy of nation building and empire expansion.

I feel angry and upset. That is money that would have been better spent if left in the hands of those who earned it.

Good, now that we've cleared that up, how would you feel about a pol who proposed massive tax exemptions for political friends, but not for others? For instance, what if there were a pol who received donations from a company that produces hand cream, and then that pol proposes massive tax exemptions for companies that produce hand cream, but no similar exemptions for companies that produce say... shampoo? Wouldn't you call that crony capitalism?

Not sure what "gotcha game" you're playing this time.

I've already declared my belief that taxation is theft. Therefore, whatever is done afterward -- no matter how well-intentioned -- it is done with stolen money. That is wrong.

You cannot even be honest about your own position. It is you, sir, that are not living in reality. Those of us that live in reality know that we need more domestic coal, oil and natural gas production to meet our energy needs. We also know that true "clean" energy is a long, long way off. What this administration has done is pour hundreds of billions into this industry while putting their boot on throats of our domestic producers. This is a recipe for disaster in so many ways, from energy prices, to national security, to food prices, to economic growth.

Ding ding ding! It's the ultimate umbrella issue. It can be used as a tool to destroy our "unfair" and "uncaring" society. That's what "climate change" is really about. That, and making Al Gore rich.
