What's even more stupid is thinking that the Democrats who voted for Cochran will vote for him in November.

And no one was saved.
As for the unemployed, a person who is unemployable at $7.75 per hour will still be unemployable at $10.00 per hour. A person employed at $7.75 per hour may or may not be employable at $10.00 per hour, yet the cost of everything will go up, making it harder to make ends meet. This is what is happening now to middle America--in 2005, I was better off with a wage of less than $2.00 per hour than I have now because prices and taxes were far lower. The only price I recall that was rising precipitously at that time were housing prices, which had little effect because I was paying off a fixed mortgage obtained in 1993.
Why is the symbol for the Democratic Party a donkey? It is the party of Abortion, Sodomy & Socialism.

I believe part of the 4th quarter increase is from bumper crops this year.
George Washington also issued a bounty to Hessian soldiers that defected--I believe it was worth about $700 and consisted of bounty lands in northern Virginia. About a quarter to a third of the Hessians took him up on the offer.

There is a wealthy suburb in the north part of Raleigh, NC called Cary--Containment Area for Relocated Yankees.
The best summation of the past week was given by John Hayward: "But even as the aristocracy luxuriates in the highest level of power – the ability to not only pass laws, but ignore them – demands for compliance and obedience from the rest of us grow more strident. Look at the rhetoric Democrats have employed during the past few weeks, referring to their opponents as terrorists, hostage-takers, and even traitors. The President is fond of statements such as, 'The time for talk is over.' That means the time for obedience is at hand. Dissent, resistance, and escape are intolerable. People say they don’t like politics. Why would anyone who truly feels that way support an ideology that politicizes every aspect of our lives? If we don’t like partisan squabbling, why give the political class so much to squabble over? Why would anyone who truly loves freedom applaud the loud demands for obedience and submission that fill every hour of the day? You need money and property to exercise your will; when the government claims more of both, through taxes, mandates, and regulations, your will becomes less significant." At what point do we reach serfdom?
Sorry, Hugh--I have tried listening to you for the past week, and have to turn you off after an hour. We have no compelling interest in Syria. The Big O is just leading from behind and wants the Republicans to take the blame for his foreign policy blunders. This is also a distraction for the upcoming Debt Ceiling brouhaha--which will come much quicker with war in Syria.
