Baaahhaaaaaa! Good one! I think its great to have a sense of humor with issues. Laughter is a better emotional showing than anger. :) but thats just me :) But I also am the type to make fun of myself if I do something that I would rather learn and make fun of myself than get all aggravated and angry~
You a dude who knows nothing about birth control pills. Get the facts straight or shut up. It's not as funny as you make it out to be. In fact, why don't you take a close look at men's health care that is free and go attack it since you are so concerned about government spending!
Remember that political ad of the 2010 showing the Chinese leader talking about how China's superior economic strategy and power would crush the United States? It was frightening.
Saw a story about Chinese wealthy families and other Chinese groups moving tons of money out of China and into off-shore banks where they can get better rates and where their money is out of the reach of the Chinese communist party. Is it possible that the Republican Party could win even in China? Is it too late to get Mitt Romney on the ticket? No ticket, no economic freedom....
Romney increases lead in swing state poll
Gallup has Romney up by 5
Heads Up! Layoffs are coming. I put this in the other thread with the Hitler Youth singing, but...
Bllomberg report: 62,000 positions, so far, are being cut
This doesn't include the defense contractors who the Administration pressured to hold off announcing layoffs. It probably doesn't include layoffs of 10,000 announced today by UBS.
That article does a pretty good job of describing the effects of a global slowdown, but doesn't go into the primary causes. It does a good job of painting a big picture that may cause others to dig a bit deeper to find out why this is really happening in the industrialized nations.
The article links these problems with politics in such a way as to imply that political outcomes could change the trend. Naturally, this is partially based on the statements made by some of the corporations who are laying people off. As these statements are made, we might do well to realize that when a publicly traded company makes a statement, it will always be made in such a way as to consider the effects of the statement on their stock, which will at least be designed to give their investors hope, or a reason to hold on to their stock.
Main stream financial journalism will always ignore the core structures of economies and their industries, because the core structures are collapsing beneath them, and everything above that structure is now just a matter of esthetics, which is, by its very nature, superficial, and therefor so is most financial journalism.
The global currency crisis should be the overt basis for all economic and financial conversation.
While I usually do an eyeroll over the Ron Paul folks' citing "evil banksters" all the time, the European crisis is definitely propelled in a large part by central bank problems, and outright central bank fraud. Britain's economy slowed this quarter, as did Sweden's, and Spain just got downgraded. Again. And the whole EU is looking at potential collapse because Germany can't bail them out forever.
The Dollar is fiat currency. The Euro is fake currency.
It's a head skratcher, for sure. For some reason the most basic, important fundamental aspects of either the economy or human behavior are ALWAYS overlooked whenever reporters or politicians get together to discuss what to do.
Ignore that 800 pound gorilla, let's talk about what to do about this end table over here...
Exactly, so how do you build industry and economies on that foundation? There really is no other financial and economic issue at hand that trumps this one.
His mom's a Canadian. Don't you guys forget how we Canadians are rooting for Romney and hoping your country will recover from Obama mania.
Well, I am bummed big time. I just noticed the Real Clear Politics electoral map changed and not in our favor. Last time I looked it was 206-201 Romney.
Why the change, anyone know?
Today it is 201-191 O (toss ups 146)
Somehow Texas went from solid Romney to 'likely Romney.' WTH? Anything to make Obama seem closer. I still don't believe my home state of Ohio after all of this time is favoring Obama. I think they are trying to depress Republicans from voting still.
I think more states are entering "toss-up" territory. Races always tighten at the end, making the last week or so of polling somewhat meaningless. It's the trend that matters, and Romney has been trending upward in several big "swing" states. Especially among independents.
Everyone keeps focusing on Ohio. I think most people misunderstand Ohio polling, because it's more of a national indicator, and usually the indicator comes after-the-fact (ie, when the results are tallied). You don't win Ohio by focusing on Ohio. It's more like, if you win nationally, then it will be reflected in the Ohio results.
Thanks K-B. I dont know why I even looked at RCP this morning. I guess I was looking for something fantastic to be posted and I was disappointed big time.
On a sidenote, we stayed up late last night watching this on netflix,
Its called Survivors: ( Also available on Amazon prime)
The original series is available on Netflix (discs only).. created by Terry Nation- It's a 38 episode series which aired on BBC1 in my favorite era (the 70's) The series concerns the aftermath of a plague which wiped out over 99% of the world- and the experiences of a handful of people as they grappled with the post-plague community -and the trials of day-to-day survival.
They say there's strength in numbers, but where are the other survivors?
The remake, Set in the present day is available on STREAMING, focuses on a group of ordinary people who survive the devastating pandemic – referred to as "European flu" – which kills most of the world's population.
The series sees the characters struggling against terrible dangers in a world with no society, no police, law. No infrastructure, communication food, etc.
We previously watched the original--- and last night we put a huge dent into the remake.
Funny stuff, but unfortunately I believe that's what a lot of our citizens (and non-citizens) are voting for.........MORE FREE STUFF (at our expense)!!!!
This guy creeps me out. I don't know which creeps me out more, this guy or the original commercial with that young girl that I take about as seriously as paint drying.
All this reminds me of my "first time." It was with Ronald Reagan in 1984. He made me see a "Shining city upon a hill." Nobody did it better.
lol....hilarious! Every time the liberals do or say something irrational like obama and the dunce cap, the conservatives come right back w something clever. I love it. Watch the Cavuto clip about obama calling Romney a bs'er.
Great stuff by Crowder, utterly hilarious!
That's the best and only way to beat them: make them look totally ridiculous.
Pass this video on - we all need a good laugh!
