Bread and circuses my friends. As long as we have the discovery channel and the home shopping network everything will be just peachy. *sigh*

The home shopping network would do better with a roaring economy, and the whole Country would be like the areas slammed in the movie 'Promised Land'. A film full of lies, by the way. Water was flaming there, long, long before fracking.
If you see jobs numbers go up, it is in areas that have, somehow, got around Obama and his agencies, but he will credit his policies for any increases and prosperity.

At the White House once I was regaling him with local news from Champaign (which he was always ready to hear), and I said, 'Blank is dead; his extremely disloyal sentiments so provoked his neighbors that there was serious talk of inflicting vengeance on him, and he was found dead in bed—caused largely by fright.' This man was an old Whig friend of Lincoln, but the reason of his exit from life's trials amused him. His comment was, 'He died, then, to save his life, it seems.'"- Lincoln's Own Stories, Anthony Gross, HARPER & BROTHERS PUBLISHERS NEW YORK AND LONDON, 1912
