And yet a little thing like asking for a photo ID when one resisters to vote is being tossed out by some courts in the US!!! :rolleyes:
Congratulations to the entire field of the Republican primaries.
You couldn't have self-destructed more completely had it been planned.
5 candidates who rail against judicial activism and overreach sue to get on the ballot in VA.
Mitt, you're a used car salesman in a nice suit.
Ron Paul.....well........frankly, your foreign policy concepts scare the hell out of me.
I'll say it again.....
We need an additional choice on every ballot: None of the above.
If none of the above wins, then the pool gets flushed and you start over.
Okay, I dated myself somewhat tonight on another forum....
Someone started a thread asking how you prep quail.....
Give him spelling lessons and don't let him stray from the teleprompter.
My answer went over most of their heads....then I realized I was dealing mainly with 20 somethings.
Hee hee! Yes, I have to check my cultural references from time to time, to fit the age of the audience!
Now, do we really really really have to listen to politics on the radio ad nauseum from now until November? Really? I could seriously do without constant dissection of the minutiae of the campaigns, and movements in the polls by one or two points, I really could!
Speaking of Quail, I met someone recently who was with him as he
prepared to give a speech. An aide handed him a copy of highlighted
points of the talk & Quail held the paper 2 inches from his face to be
able to read it. He's blind as a bat, but is to vain for glasses.:)
His poor eyesight explains a lot. Not everything, but a lot.:)
So I'm reading an article on Politico, and come across this -
I love it - wish I were clever enough to write like that :DQuote:
With a clear opportunity to win the gold medal of American politics — knocking off an incumbent president — Republicans produced a field of dwarves.
So not a ooops, McCain was right the first time.:) Is this what is called
a freudian slip? :D
Props to Barack for playing politics and rescue missions at the same time.
"America is back" -- Pres. Obama
Really? Sure doesn't feel like it to me. I've seen my property value almost double and then return to exactly where it was when I bought it. Everything costs more, gasoline, milk, my health insurance. And I'm getting less. I'm paying the same price for ice cream and getting 1 1/2 quarts instead of half a gallon. Lots of people are still unemployed. Lots of people can't get the health care they need. America will be back when people are working and the economy is robust again.
Also -- I don't think it is right that in an election year the current President uses the State of the Union address as a campaign speech. That is not the purpose of the address.
Thanks for letting me rant!
Agreed - 100+%
