Unemployment Set to Explode

Unfortunately, there will be. I live in NYC and - also unfortunately - know very few conservatives, or even independents. And no matter how often I disagree with their political views (politely, of course; my mama didn't raise me to be a poltroon like VP Biden!) I can't make a dint. They accept completely the talking points they get from the NYTimes, MSNBC, and the major networks. What I say HAS to be wrong because it's right-wing extremism. *sigh*

Another Reason for Barack Obama To Go Home

Social Security and Medicare are "guvment checks"; yet, despite all the "throwing granny over the cliff" nonsense, senior citizens (maybe because they went to grade/high school when these establishments taught you HOW to think, and not WHAT to think) are still more likely to vote for Governor Romney than for the incumbent. Moreover, there are many people on UIB and welfare who - even with the work requirements almost non-existent now - would still prefer the dignity and freedom of earning their own living. Remember, what the government gives, the government may take away to give to someone else deemed more "worthy". It's not the increase of government checks we need fear the most, it's accepting the status quo as the "new normal".

Obama Versus Obama: Part III

No, Jeanne. If you investigate the underlying composition of the polls that show Obama ahead by 8. 9. or 10 points you find out that the polls were deliberately designed with just those percentages of over-representation by Democrats and corresponding under-representation by Independents and Republicans. Why such discrepancies from reality? I thnk it's fear of letting the American people see the truth, that Governor Romney is, at a minimum, tied with the President (a very precarious position for an incumbent at this stage of things) or that he is, indeed, ahead in the polls. Don't give up, be sure to vote, and be on the lookout for fraud. If you see it, report it immediately and get law enforcement/media involved even if they're reluctant.
I don't understand why every Republican/Conservative commentator is not reporting at the top of his/her lungs that the polls CAN'T BE TRUSTED!!! When you look behind the curtain on the polls that show Obama ahead by an inordinate number, you see that the Democratic numbers are vastly over-represented and the Republican, and especially the Independent numbers, are very much under-represented even by comparison to 2008 voting patterns, much less 2010 patterns. Adjusted for a more reasonable pattern, Governor Romney is commanding a significant lead. Why the misrepresentation? Politics: an attempt to make President Obama's victory "inevitable" and to encourage Republicans to stay home on 11/6.
Do you realize just how degrading your comment is to women, Hispanics, blacks, and youth when you automatically decide that their votes inevitably go to the far left? Governor Romney may not have been my first - or even my second - choice for the Republican standard bearer. But with an incumbent President running for his second term, and a boot-licking MSM his eager pamphleteer/video producer/ring leader, he is our ONLY option. ('Sides, gotta admit he's looking a lot more 'presidential' in recent days, as evidenced by his response to the Libyan massacre and some recent interviews.)
No, but they have ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, the New York TImes, the Washington Post, the LA Times, the Huffington Post, Media Matters, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, Nancy Pelosi, Debby Wasserman-Schultz, and numerous others of every shade of red (the ORIGINAL meaning of the word in politics, not the new one which probably confuses many voters) from mildly Socialist to "pinko sympathizer" to scarlet-tinged communist radicals like Bill Ayres and Vann Jones and such. You know, the folks who lack common sense?

Democrats Lock Up Uterus Vote

... Finally, #7: do we REALLY need a Federal Reserve at all? Transparent or not what does it do for this country? (Remember, one of my only C’s – screwed up my GPA, it did! – was in economics, so I’d really like to know.) Meanwhile, please keep up making a very difficult subject much more accessible.

...thing when in reality it said the exact opposite. So how about a max of 10 pages per section of each piece of legislation but under no circumstances any more than 100 pages per bill? Next, under #5: I would guess you’d include shale oil and natural gas development, but would you also be interested in allowing the free market to see if solar and wind and other “green” plans can ever be truly sustainable and marketable? As for #6, do we really want to simply shrink the EPA; can’t we return this department completely to the states? ...
