* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Looks like Ryan swore up and down that he never requested stimulus money until someone found proof that he did...Why am I not surprised?

From the article you mentioned.  

Quote
"If Congressman Ryan is asked to help a Wisconsin entity applying for existing Federal grant funds, he does not believe flawed policy should get in the way of doing his job and providing a legitimate constituent service to his employers," the spokesman told the Milwaukee (Wisc.) Journal Sentinel.

Thursday, Ryan responded to the questions himself.

"After having these letters called to my attention I checked into them, and they were treated as constituent service requests in the same way matters involving Social Security or Veterans Affairs are handled," Ryan said in a statement. "This is why I didn't recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that.

What do you expect from someone like Ryan. Lying is part of his religion. Of course he's against Obama but he sure loved Obama's money. Could someone just ignore the worlds dumbest people who will never amount to anything in their lives.

*** MOD HAT ON ***
First, He's a Catholic and lying is not part of the Catholic religion.

Second, please reread the rules NOW. Generalized attacks on religions are not welcome here. If you hate Christianity (or any other religion), please leave that hate at the door. It's not wanted here.
