    Not necessarily a bad thing.
    I wonder how many times we will get right at the edge of shutting the National government down.
    I wish, in a way, that would happen.
    The people of the US might realize we don't really need it that much.
    Only the parasites and moochers will notice.

    Why not ... it's been proven it's not important.

    Theres a bigger thing at play with OBAMA winning RE ELECTION.


    John Boehner will have to abandon those tea party people left in the house and move to the center and meet Obama there! He will have no choice!

    Let the crying begin!

    Another 4 years of Obama.
    Now he has no campaigning
    to keep him busy. What is he going to do?

    It's going to be a surprise, because
    no one knows his 4-yr. plan.

    I guess now he will magically be
    able to compromise. $21 Trillion
    deficit awaits us.

    Nothing changed!! Mooch is planning
    her vacations.

    There are around 210 million lawfully eligible voters in this country and it appears between 120 to 130 million will actually vote. Of that, President Obama will receive around 60 million plus votes or in order words, around 30% or maybe less of the total eligible voters actually voted for Obama so once again the President of this country will have been elected by a clear minority of voters in this country and a clear single majority rejected the entire false choice of the 2 party system and voted of Nobody.

    You could say, regardless of the outcome, Nobody still wins!

    I wonder if the tea party will shrug?

    And there is a greater chance that Boehner will not be Speaker than the Tea Party going away.

    The Tea Party is not a Party ... it is a way of thinking and if they shrug the social agenda, they will grow in strength.

    Time will tell ... as for now, essentially, nothing has changed.

    Great piece in the Enquire........Seems Mooch has visited divorce lawyers 3 times in the past few years. She was convinced by da man to stick with it 'til the re-election.

    Now I am real curious what will happen.

    No more elections and she's free to pursue what she wants.

    Before you poo-poo the source, remember who broke the John Edward's story????

    ​47% will notice because they'll actually have to get off their lazy asses and do something.

    Oh, I'm fine.....just reporting an interesting story that I can't post, you have tio buy the rag to read it.

    I'm taking mucho comfort in the fact that the maggot is through after this.....no more elections for him.

    I've made my list of people I'm no longer listening to
    and I spent the morning watching the Wives of Beverly Hills.
    Heading to Walmart when they open in 2 1/2 hours !!

    Time for everone to sit down with the healthcare law and read it.

    Please note that birth control is not mentioned in the law.

    Start shopping your local healthcare exchanges...it is cheaper to pay the fine than cover employees.

    I didn't agree with the law. It is so flawed it's sickening. And, a much better approach could have been done without costing us one red cent.

    But, the democrats weren't the only ones who voted for it.

    ​And it's much much easier for mom and pop to close up the business than to pay for healthcare for their employees. There goes the unemployment rate.

    This is what I remember from back then.....

    "The House passed the bill with a vote of 219 to 212 on March 21, 2010, with 34 Democrats and all 178 Republicans voting against it.
