Most daughters do think their fathers are superman whether they are rich or poor! I do not envy the rich man because he will leave this world just as I with nothing. There is no doubt in my mind that you are a good and loving father. But one day your daughters will be in turmoil over your wealth left behind and your family may be divided just as my father's family.

Also,

"ObamaCareís employer mandate will discourage business development and growth. Small firms with 50 or fewer workers will have very strong disincentives to expand. These businesses can avoid the new penalties by staying small; growth will simply add new costs and burdens. Many businesses with low profit margins are unable to pay the substantial cost of providing comprehensive insurance to all of their employees or the new taxes under ObamaCareís employer mandate. Once companies reach 50 employees, they are likely to turn to contractors and outsource work to evade the new mandate, even if such arrangements are less efficient than directly hiring new workers."

Sorry but it does'nt take money to wear that cape. What it does take is to be a man who owns up to responsibility rich or poor! My father was the poorest white man this side of the Mississippi with five children. Through blood sweat and tears he wore that cape. He has been past away for five years now and as far as I'm concerned he still wears it like no other.

Forget all the good wishes. FK the democracy, we neglected our own and we are a nation in decline like ROME. World domination, control should not be our desire. We can't afford and don't.....policing the world. Our GGGG grandkids will be paying for our folly. 400 bridges are crumbling in this country, where's the money?? CHINA?? They almost own us.

And keep in mind, I mean all right wing media when I say 'fox news'.
You're spinning again.
I never said BSNBC doesn't talk about the economy but they,(Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow), do devote more time talking about the social issues than the economy.
Fox News is the ONLY right wing media on tv, all others are liberal!

Again, the major issue IS the economy! By your standards, the majority of Americans think black and white.

Powell has no record of any sort of racism, yet Bacon accuses him of racism simply because see cannot fathom a republican endorsing Obama. Pretty sad mentality you morons have. I am disgusted by you and your friends here.
You are showing your true colors on a regular basis. You show the republican party as just a bunch of racist bastards.
I thought she made a great point. Powell endorsed Obama in '08 although he had no record and no experience. Now that he has experience and a failed record, Powell endorses him again. What does that say about Powell's judgement?
As far as the rest of your post, typical liberal tactics....SIN

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.

Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

The closeness of the race in the polls, and now the impending storm to come that may effect the election...what a time to be alive. Can anybody venture the possible effect of a major storm on the outcome?

What planet are you living on? You support 50% of our income is being stolen by a communist/socialist government people like you keeping in power. Our property threatened and our families enslaved to support the drugies and freeloader. Youíre looking to use the government to steal from people that work for a living.

So you support the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto. Are you and Mikey are looking to destroy America and its liberties and freedoms. You want to put people in office that will use fascism to bring people in line with your communist ideals. People like you are how people like Stalin and Hitler get to power.

Resignation letter

Kenly, NC

Let me cut to the chase: I quit. I am resigning my position as a teacher in the
state of North Carolinaópermanently. I am quitting without notice (taking
advantage of the ďat willĒ employment policies of this state). I am quitting
without remorse and without second thoughts. I quit.
Why?
BecauseÖ
I refuse to be led by a top-down hierarchy that is completely detached from the
classrooms for which it is supposed to be responsible.
I will not spend another day under the expectations that I prepare every student
for the increasing numbers of meaningless tests.
I refuse to be an unpaid administrator of field tests that take advantage of
children for the sake of profit.
I will not spend another day wishing I had some time to plan my fantastic
lessons because administration comes up with new and inventive ways to steal
that time, under the guise of PLC meetings or whatever. Iíve seen successful PLC
development. It doesnít look like this.
I will not spend another day wondering what menial, administrative task I will
hear that I forgot to do next. Iím far enough behind in my own work.
I will not spend another day wondering how I can have classes that are full
inclusion, and where 50% of my students have IEPs, yet Iím given no support.
I will not spend another day in a district where my coworkers are both on
autopilot and in survival mode. Misery loves company, but I will not be that
company.
I refuse to subject students to every ridiculous standardized test that the
state and/or district thinks is important. I refuse to have my higher-level and
deep thinking lessons disrupted by meaningless assessments (like the EXPLORE
test) that do little more than increase stress among children and teachers, and
attempt to guide young adolescents into narrow choices.
I totally object and refuse to have my performance as an educator rely on
ďStandard 6.Ē It is unfair, biased, and does not reflect anything about the
teaching practices of proven educators.
I refuse to hear again that itís more important that I serve as a test
administrator than a leader of my peers.
I refuse to watch my students being treated like prisoners. There are other
ways. Itís a shame that we donít have the vision to seek out those alternatives.
I refuse to watch my coworkers being treated like untrustworthy slackers through
the overbearing policies of this state, although they are the hardest working
and most overloaded people I know.
I refuse to watch my family struggle financially as I work in a job to which I
have invested 6 long years of my life in preparation. I have a graduate degree
and a track record of strong success, yet Iím paid less than many two-year
degree holders. And forget benefitsóthey are effectively nonexistent for
teachers in North Carolina.
I refuse to watch my districtís leadership tell us about the bad news and
horrific changes coming towards us, then watch them shrug incompetently, and
then tell us to work harder.
I refuse to listen to our highly regarded superintendent telling us that the
charter school movement is at our doorstep (with a soon-to-be-elected governor
in full support) and tell us not to worry about it, because we are applying for
a grant from Race to the Top. There is no consistency here; there is no
leadership here.
I refuse to watch my students slouch under the weight of a system that expects
them to perform well on EOG tests, which do not measure their abilities other
than memorization and application and therefore do not measure their readiness
for the next grade levelómuch less life, career, or college.
Iím tired of watching my students produce amazing things, which show their true
understanding of 21st century skills, only to see their looks of disappointment
when they donít meet the arbitrary expectations of low-level state and district
tests that do not assess their skills.

israelnationalnews.com They call him Cool Barry and No Drama Obama, but President Barack Obama appears to be losing his nerve in the final fortnight of the race for his second term.
Obama is quoted in an interview for Rolling Stone using the expression "bull****ter" regarding his opponent, Mitt Romney.
In the interview, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley recorded a conversation between Obama and Eric Bates, the executive editor of Rolling Stone. Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old daughter if she had a message for the president, and she said: "Tell him: you can do it."
Obama then replied with a grin: "You know, kids have good instincts. They look at the other guy and say,'Well, that's a bull****ter, I can tell'.
Asked to explain Obama's remark, spokesman Dan Pfeiffer told reporters that he hadn't seen the article. However, he went on to say: "Trust is a very important part of the election. The president is someone who says what he means and does what he says, and Governor Romney's answers in the debates on domestic issues and foreign policy raise real questions about that."
Civility in any presidential contest is expected, but it is probably more important in this one, because of the race factor. Uncivil language by Romney toward Obama would probably immediately be viewed as a evidence of racism, but by the same token, uncivil language by Obama could cause resentment among white supporters, and also play into the hands of people who oppose him for the wrong reasons.
Did you see democrats accuse Mitt of racism when he accused Obama of lying the many times he did so in the debates? Nope. So your post is clearly bullshit.
In case you did not know what bullshit actually means, it indicates one is lying.

Sununu has made more than one racist remark in his time. Bacon has made more than one racist comment in her time.

Not sure why you assume Obama is losing his nerve just because he used a derogatory word to describe Mitt the liar. Maybe he should have called him a ballerina. That way he could say it was not said in a derogatory way, as ballerina's are nice.Bacon logic.

I talked to a few guys who work for Williams Electric this morning at the gas station. They said they were headed north to a staging area to wait out the storm, then they would be deployed to help out where needed. Also said they were told some areas may be without power til Thanksgiving so pack heavy!
Guess those areas will have to resort to pen and paper. Without electricity,(computers), to check the validity of voters, should voter ID be required?
