The study, conducted by Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, showed that such attacks frequently knocked such sites offline.
The bland and faux tanned Minority Leader thinks that the issue is that people are living longer and so we have to pay Social Security benefits for a longer period of time, thus making it too expensive.

The fascinating results of the study conducted in Sweden and reported earlier this year is this: People with the lowest dementia risk have a combination of low neuroticism and high extraversion on the Eysenck. Further, among socially isolated individuals, even low neuroticism alone shows a relationship with decreased dementia risk.
Russell Simmons, Warren Buffett, John Z. Delorean, Senator Frank R. Lautenberg, Charles Schwab, Earl G. Graves and my favorite Reginald F. Lewis just to name a few who began with nothing except their minds.
