Do you remember George Harrison's song *The Tax Man*?
There was great bitterness there over Socialist theft.
What I find bizarre is that Paul McCartney flies over here to my country to tell the Boy Messiah that "...we in England are behind you..". Now THAT'S frightening. Paul's been divorced and taken to the cleaners...what...4-5 times now?
A Fool and his money. I now have a better understanding of why Paul & John argued so much.
England's 95% "super tax" on the rich should be implemented here in the U.S. to help President Obama balance the deficit. Nobody needs $10,000,000 a year.

When was the last political assassination in France?
Whenever it was, the next one is long overdue.
So you advocate assassinating the President of France? You need to be federally investigated. You're dangerous like most gun nuts.

How do you manage to stay on the sidewalk? There are no guarantees in Life. Only probabilities.

Christmas is not celebrated by everyone and not as a religious event by many of those that do celebrate it. You are lost in a foggy world of idealism. You sound like the computer that can't make the distinction between "I love my dog", "I love my car", I love my country" or "I love mashed potatoes".

Because you are completely blind to the subtleties and distinctions in all aspects of Life, the world, your world, becomes simply B & W with 64 shades of grey. Color is a concept you will never conceive of and a world you will never enter into. Cold & alone you fail to relate.

Maybe that's because both governors of New York and New Jersey prepared and evacuated their citizens. And their citizens were not stranded because of their negligence. And the mayors and governors of those cities and states didn't have any reason to refuse giving the federal government permission to take control to clean up their mistakes.
It's the bigger picture. It's always there.
You're going to go back to your old lie that the federal government needed some kind of permission to go in to the affected areas. They didn't stupid. Once a federal emergency was declared no permission was needed. Where was Bush when Katrina was bearing down on the area? He was on one of his many vacations at his ranch. Where was President Obama? In Washington keeping tabs on developments and coordinating with the various governors.

I agree Bush didnt Handle Katrina right from the begining he took the set back and wait approach from the governors where Obama didnt, Obama was on the phone with the governors prior to Sandi's arrival to assure that Federal Assistance was ready and waiting for governor's when ready to request Federal Assistance.

First of all you're comparing a category 1 hurricane hitting New Jersey to a category 5 hitting New Orleans that is below sea level.
The state government knew the levees were not capable of withstanding a hurricane 5 for years but shifted funds to reinforce them elsewhere.
And 95% of the tragedy of Katrina is due to the incompetence of preparations by Ray Nagin and Kathleen Blanco.
But please tell me what Obama did that Bush didn't that made any difference whatsoever.
HEY STUPID! The responsibility for the levees was and is with the Army Corps of Engineers, a FEDERAL agency. You're right when you said that needed funds were diverted though, by Bush to finance his Iraq disaster and his tax cuts.
On June 8, 2004, Walter Maestri, emergency management chief for Jefferson Parish, Louisiana; told the Times-Picayune:ďIt appears that the money has been moved in the presidentís budget to handle homeland security and the war in Iraq, and I suppose thatís the price we pay. Nobody locally is happy that the levees canít be finished, and we are doing everything we can to make the case that this is a security issue for us.Ē

What did Obama do differently than Bush? He was on the job in Washington, not vacationing you clueless twit!
You're not only a liar Carol, but a spectacularly incompetent one as well.

The sonicfillers of this world mistakenly place "winning" on a tall pedestal of righteousness high above the common cross-streets of Morality and Ethics. If their candidates win by lying to the common man-on-the-street, by racial pandering, subterfuge or media manipulation then all eyes become blinded to the darkness and celebration is the sole focus of the day.
If a professional wrestler surreptitiously injects his opponent with a disabling drug and thus wins, the sonicfillers will parade throughout the stadium in glee. They know what just happened but that's not important. What IS important is that their hero won the match! Like Floyd Landis, Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds and the long, long list of "winners" that titillate the likes of sonicfiller types.
Millions of sonicfillers are directly responsible for the constant downward ratcheting of civil behavior and discourse. But, hey, who cares? They're winning!
.
Mitt lied. Mitt pandered. Mitt's FOX based agenda failed to sway the rest of the media.

and now we have a few in this country who have decided that they want their state to withdraw from the union. because they couldn't pick a 'winner'.

want some cheese with that whine? but who really cares as long as you're losing.

When did the GOP become the whiners?

Any short history of the whining sweepstakes should start by noting that a tectonic shift is taking place when the candidates and handlers of one side begin asking, in some form, this question: Why are they being allowed to do to us what we've happily been doing to them since -- to choose a recent precedent to this partisan shift -- the swift boating of John Kerry? You see what's that led to? Why, these Obamians want to turn Romney's brilliant business career into an unpatriotic defect!

The current situation is noteworthy because the Democratic Party seemed to have the exclusive franchise on piteous bleating dating back to Richard Nixon's victory in 1968 and throughout the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush years. Truth be told, the Democrats managed to keep whining throughout most of the triumphant Bill Clinton years.

The game changer clearly has been Barack Obama, whose surprising taste for bloodying the noses of domestic critics and foreign adversaries seems to hark back to the last time the Democrats were unashamed political warriors.

so the answer to the question: November, 2008.
