Hundreds of thousands, tens of thousands, finally, thousands are going to do without in three days. How can anyone fix the problem if on a road show?

Exactly! Instead traveling one mile down the street to meet with the elected officials involved, the Roadshow Ruler is 150 miles away on the fear mongering campaign trail! This President and his party is a joke! No leadership skills at all!

I think you are doing exactly what you have accused me of; refusing to accept something because of preconceived notions.
Implying that my old friend was a jerk is the first thing on this forum that has ruffeled my feathers. He was a real hero with stunning combat accomplishments as a pilot and the medals to prove it, but never got the news coverage. Coincidentally,he was not rich then, nor did he have well a well connected family. Also, there was , again coincidentally, no crew with movie cameras waiting to pick him up when his Avenger went down.If he said something, you could believe it and I do believe him . He was there and in the air.

Finally, in Raleigh, republikans have done something useful. They have voted on a back to basics law that NC schools require students to memorize the multiplication tables and be proficient in cursive writing. They probably left out memorizing the goesintas because they never heard of them.

I like to listen to Rush (Mr Oxycodone) because he is interestingly extreme right wing nuts. However, the left didn't win. The right snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by being so math challenged that they didn't understand what 51% of the vote means.
Attacking women, blacks, immigrants, the poor, the unemployed, veterans, the disabled, the elderly, anyone who didn't chant the lockstep republikan mantras and even girl scouts was not really a formula for winning 51% of the vote. They are still doing it and will continue to lose again and again until they stop attacking a majority of the electorate.. As Clinton says, "--its arithmetic"

You started this"commucrat"crap with your"republikan"crap .When you hit someone in the face, they generally hit you back.Here's some advice for you, free of charge.If you don't want your"friends"subject ed to criticism, leave them off of Topix.You've seen what happens to my friend on Topix.Your nameless"friend" (how do I even know he's not someone you made up)? Is absolutely unknown to me.Expect your"friend"to experience criticism, with his unfounded comments.That's right, he's gone, so he can't be further questioned.That's convenient.

The entire episode is a dog and pony show for the electorate. There is no doubt (among the sane) that cuts have to be made. There is no doubt (amoung the sane) that taxes will have to increase. This is only the first step and the brahooha allows both parties to disclaim responsibility for the discomfort it will cause.

TSF I recall how much Stowe hated you.At first,I thought Stowe wasn't a bad type.Then, in response to a girl, who was a friend of mine, dying without access to medical care, he said, to paraphrase, that she should have become a doctor, and treated herself.Really....TSF you're great with statistics.All i'm asking of you, is to check your stats, as Clemens said"There are lies, damn lies, and statistics."

LOL! You die-hard morons don't get it. Obama won two terms and both times with over 50% of the vote. Only 3 previous American Presidents have ever done so. What part of 'YOU LOST BIG TIME!' do you not understand? The man has created a history and legacy you will never be able to erase. Oh, BTW? Thanks for the term 'Obamacare'. Now nobody will ever be able to forget exactly who it was who fixed what you idiots did to us in our health care system. Thanks, guys!'Obamacare' is damn catchy!

The will of the people is WAY clear. We, the people, choose Obama's way, not yours. Now, get on the bus, get off the bus or get the F*** out of the way. Figuratively running all over you is a gift that keeps on giving...

You act as if the well off are villains robbing from the poor. Not their fault if they can manage money, convince people to invest and or market a product that turns a profit.

Your teams tax the wealthy more because they have it is robbery. Which, you're comfortable with that, so your posture on it doesn't surprise me.

We should value your opinion why? You know nothing of the people you're championing the fight for...

"I am not afraid of terrorist precisely because I am armed. I often travel by private plane because of the hassel encountered on commercial planes. The jets are cheaper and faster but by the time you go through all the BS and delays, the old recip/props can grind out the miles in about the same total time in transit.
Plus, being low and slow lets you see more of the landscape.
To me, the nut cases are the ones who qualify for concealed carry permits but are not armed. Just FYI, cops are known to have a higher crime rate than citizens with concealed carry permits. That indicates to me that citizens with training and extensive background checks are more dependable than cops."

You have an unbiased credible source, not a friend, proving your libelous and alleged comments about law enforcement, right?

The United Nations does not run our Military.
With Obama turning the military against Americans it is time to getting serious. Martial Law is the system of rules that become reality when the military takes over the regular administration of justice in a land. That is to say, Martial Law means the “suspension” of the Constitution. Curfews, rationing of basic goods, enforced relocations, confiscation of firearms and supplies, and summary arrest/execution by soldiers and paramilitary police in our homes wielding assault rifles. Now Americas have seen scenarios on the news, on commercials, and maybe they all seem like crap to to them. However, working in this business, I have many connections, and I have seen with my own eyes officers training for this kind of procedure. Unfortunately, it is just a matter of time. Hopefully, people wake-up before MARTIAL LAW is imposed, and hopefully, people understand this while they are still nominally under Constitutional Law, so as to appreciate the opportunities they currently have not only to protect ourself and out families but to attempt to stop all of this from ever happening.

I miss Stowe. His intense hatred toward anyone with views even slightly different from his was amusing. I have always been entertained by the unrealistic perspective of the silver spoon crowd and their unjustified sense of superiority because they have money they didn't earn themselves.. They are always confused at irreverance for them and their money. Administering a little "culture shock" to that type individual has long been a sporting event for me. Usually, I can't resist, even with the seldom events when they win, I am not sure why, but I also love to do demolition derby with agressive mercedes drivers. Yes, I know its probably a personality defect.
