The stores that open on holidays do so for one reason, they anticipate generating enough revenue to make a profit. By the size of the crowds that show up to shop, those estimates seem timid. Let the market decide.
The end of ehalll's rant was cogent, when he noted "And of course Russia wants to maintain a sphere of influence separating it from NATO. All this seems obvious, and how the US could not have expected this is incomprehensible. Finally, the US leadership passivist attitude has indeed created a vacuum which certainly will be filled - by Russia in Central Asia and the Arctic and by China around the China Sea. The US has a vacuum of leadership, at home and abroad. " In the SOTU, Prez Make Believe said that Russia was isolated, with its economy in tatters. Well, I guess he forgot to read that memo from the 80s he used to insult Romney during a debate. Back then, the Russian economy was in the heyday of communinst mismanagenent, so by comparison today's tatters seem like a huge improvement to the cossacks on the ground there.

This 38% confidence interval is really a huge thing which cuts right to the core integrity of the scientists who prepared this and the work they did. First off, any legitimate scientific conclusions are drawn at the 90 to 95% confidence interval and it's not uncommon to see as high as 99% used. Why did these reaearchers use such a low confidence interval? They had to in order to make the rsults conform to their narrative. Another very important question I've not heard answered is what was the confidence interval of averages from previous years? If it was higher, that delegitimizes the current claim. It's like moving the goalposts in a football game.
Not only did Obama take credit for ower gas price, he later croed about taking more Federal land out of energy prooduction than any other POTUS ever, not realizing that you can't have it both ways. Hey Barack, he 80s just called. THey want to remind you that he Rusian economy was a lot worse back then than the "tatters" you say it's in now.

When one sees a Hollywood type person follow the sterps 1, Open mouth 2 Insert foot 3 Bite down at knee, then react to the firestorm they've kicked up by weasel worded retractions, two things are a safe bet. First, the initial remarks represent their true, unfiltered opinions. Second, the retractions were written by their PR people.

The irony in that speech was weapons grade. First, Barry practically dislocates his shoulder patting himself on the back taking credit for the salutary effects of lower energy prices, like he had anything to do with them. Later he congratulates himself for banning oil & gas exploration on Fed land. Well, which is it? His self praise for foreign policy confirms beyond any doubt that he lives in an alternate universe which is a mirror image of the one we inhabit. ISIS is on the run? Yeah right, they're running after as many Westerners as they can kidnap and behead. They just executed 13 teenaged boys for watching a soccer game on TV. His assesment of the situation with Iran was a joke They just signed a military cooperation agreement with Russia and continue apace to develop nuke weapons. The statements on Russia can only be described as delerious. The Russian economy is in tatters? Which makes it way better than it was during the days of the USSR. Vlad KGB Putin doesn't care in the least about this. He still has Crimea, where he's thinking of siting nukes. He's pressuring the Baltic states in the North, and has signed defense agreements with Syria and Iran. Oh yeah, he's trying to annex a chunk of Western Ukraine.
Moore tried to walk back his comments, but the retraction sounded way too much like the weasel words of a publicist trying to repair the damage his client just did to himself.

Until recently, immigrants left the old country and came here with a desire to become Americans. Many brought their language and customs along, but when they arrived, they called themselves Americans, no hyphens. To our detriment, it's not like that any more.
The default position of Obama's world view is that Western civilization is the number one scourge upon the planet. If there's anything wrong anywhere, it's our fault. Obama has taken it upon himself to offer atonement to our rivals Thus his policy is designed to antagoize allies and appease adversaries.
