I think if I were Joe B, I'd be working this for the funny, say, doing an FDR impression. "The Only Thing we have to Custard is Custard Itself!!" or "In God We Custard!" or "If We* don't give Tax Relief, it's Custard's Last Stand!" Ba-Dump-Kssshh! I'm here every week; try the veal.

And who cares about the middle class, they were just a relic from the days when the wealthy needed managers for their mills and factories. But since the wealthy found out they could outsource stuff to countries that make cheap shit, that can't be repaired and must be replaced, they're in clover.

Since the middle class is expendable, we can hardly worry about the rest of the country who are well and truly fucked for many years to come... if not for good.
Yes sir, bring back the rich man's friend, that way the rich man won't have to spend so much on lobbyists, and live happily ever after.

The battle is not Muslim vs. nonMuslim

the Imam's words belong here

In no way do they represent our religion. And we must not let them define us. Radical extremists would have us believe in a worldwide battle between Muslims and nonMuslims. That idea is false. The real battlefront today is not between Muslims and nonMuslims, but moderates of all faith traditions against the extremists of all faith traditions.

This is long, long overdue. Fortunately, it continues to get better and more Hall of Fame worthy.

My sincerest congratulations on your success, and my admiration for your perseverance and diligence. You have done *so much* hard work. You deserve a parade!

I mean believe me, I understand that two-year-olds are typically a pain in the ass, and I honestly feel that I am above-average when it comes to being patient with him. But let's consider a few examples:

I landed on my ass, but i flipped. She was proud of me. We had a good day. mini golf, dinner with my mom, cheerleading practice, and the boy taught me how to ripstick. kids are cool.
For posterity.

But replacing them with fools like Christine O'Donnell and Rand Paul, who have both sold out to Karl Rove, is stupid beyond belief.

The Republicans have promised small government and lower taxes, forever. But when they were in power, they did exactly the opposite... they lied.
The Democrats lied too, they're all liars. They promised more federal help to the states/people, and while they did give us a federal surplus, they immediately started bickering how they were going to spend it, instead of paying down debt and saving us interest.
They both give us more government, but the Republicans take care of the wealthy, and the Democrats do better by the rest of us. Either way smaller government is a pipe dream, we're not getting rid of them, so the best we can do is hold their feet to the fire, pressure them to do more good.

There was a poster recently, only made one post. He was collecting a huge government pension, I don't remember exactly how much. Well I checked him out on the net, as I do for all the new members I can. He was in two other forums trying to find out how he could screw his credit card company out of thirty odd thousand dollars, and get away with it.
The world is fucked up I tell ya, but don't throw out the baby with the bath water.

Mr Macho Headstomper thinks he can take care of himself, but he's a fool. When walmart kills or cripples his children, what's he going to do about it, sue them, burn down the store, bitch on the internet? That's not going to help the kid, and he'll be squashed like a grape.

I hold no grudges, or ill will (not that I ever had any reason to), and I wish you well. I'll go as far as saying that I wish I had not been so hard on you before, and that I had been more respectful of your feelings.

I was careless with the effect that the things I say have on the people I say them to, and on the way other people that read them treat that person.

CHEERS
