I don't see any of that. I see evenly divided partisans with a middle ground of mostly uninformed folks who are less excited about Obama than they are about Romney. That middle group, which is quite large, won't be able to check a box that says "60% Romney/40% Obama." They will each have to vote one or the other. And very few people vote for the guy they like personally if the guy they don't particularly like is going to promote policies that help them. Repeal of Obamacare may sound like "Gee, doesn't Obama suck?" but it's a policy that will have concrete benefits for people. I think this columnist had to make a deadline so he engaged the computer before engaging his gray matter. Will it be close? Maybe. Because we are closely divided.

Okay, it's a problem. We've identified it. Solutions? I favor going after the lawbreakers aggressively. That means anybody that was allowed to break the law as a special favor, and anybody who allowed them to break said law. All the corruptocrats prosecuted and given maximum jail time. Republican or Democrap, makes no difference to me. Anybody dispensing or receiving special favors in violation of law needs to go to the same jail.

Sorry dude. The iPhone hater forums have been closed for years due to lack of interest in old news. I use an iPad 3 because there is nothing, literally nothing, out there that can render digital photos in the field like the iPad 3. I could spend 3 times as much on a fancy laptop, and though I'd have better photo editing capability I'd have less rendering ability. If you're a gamer or a web surfer or a facebooker, Android will probably work just fine for you. If image quality is critical for you, an Android tablet still offers some very powerful photo editing options. But in terms of actual image rendering for critical editing, the display of those Android tablets still comes up woefully short to the new iPad's. Pony up for the best.

And Tesla is a company that has 'test queen' written all over it. There is literally no way to build the cars Tesla purports to be able to build, for the transport demands of our citizenry, without building literally thousands of new coal-fired electricity plants, currently outlawed by the Obama administration. You can drive around in a coal-fired car all you want, as far as I'm concerned. You can pay the hundred grand it costs to own the thing, and deal with the fact that when its power drops below a certain threshold its entire electronics package--and ability to even be recharged, is "bricked." How about a Golf BlueTec, produced here, with its 70 mpg? Sure it's not electric but who cares?
Fabius, I respect your Catholic views and by your lights I, a LDS, am a heretic, as are all Lutherans, Methodists, Baptists and any and all other so-called Christians who do not recognize the authority of the Catholic church. At least you recognize that divine authority is indeed necessary to administer the ordinances of salvation such as baptism. We quarrel on where God's authority resides on earth today, but among Christians our two faiths are unique in making it central. I'm pretty sure the Catholic church didn't delegate authority to Luther, Wesley, Rick Warren or anyone else to start a new church. Joseph Smith claimed to receive the priesthood directly from Peter, James and John. It's Mormons, Catholics or nobody.
I think a lot of LDS misinterpret the BOM passage, "...for we know it is by grace we are saved, after all we can do." Some try to say we have to do all we can before we are eligible for grace. By that impossible standard, the Celestial Kingdom will be utterly empty because nobody, ever, has done "all he could have done." So what does it mean? I take it to mean "after all we can do, it is by grace we are saved." You could try and try, and try some more, but there is no salvation for you except by the atonement of Christ (grace). I don't believe, and neither should any Mormon, that God requires an impossible standard of perfection. He requires a broken heart and a contrite spirit, and a covenant that covers us in grace.
I love that the Dims are segregating themselves into urban areas--which will then erupt in violence when the assumptions underpinning their policies cause the whole welfare house of cards to come crashing down. Out here in the small towns, we still cling happily to our religion and our guns, and as the cities burn and the bankrupt libs eat each other, our gardens and farms are productive, and we'll sell our produce to whomever pays. We used to need the cities because that's where we got all our manufactured goods. But all that crap comes from China now, so what good are the cities, except to use as dumping grounds for worthless liberal human debris? Keep flocking to them, libs.
