<quoted text> The point of opening a business is to make money. It is not to employ more people than you need or longer than you need them. It is not to give people health insurance or vacation pay. You open a business because you have an idea that you think will be a success. Under this president it is not worth the risk.
It was much safer to open a business say in 2006.

You get dumber every day.

Republicans just give it to the wealthy & corporate America.
We are facing taxmageddon because Republicans refuse to compromise. They can't compromise because they all signed a pledge to an unelected lobbyist & hold that over the good of this country.
What kind of "patriot" would be more loyal to a lobbyist than this country? Romney, Ryan, Republicans in Congress & Senate.
How ridiculous is this pledge, Say we discover that we have a subsidy for child molesters, we could not eliminate that subsidy unless we cut matching revenue elsewhere. Otherwise, Norquist calls it a tax increase. Republican insanity.
Tea Part says NO! new taxes.

Get back to us when the Kenyan rolls back his welfare spending and signs the repeal of ObamaCare

American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS and fkn cell phone calls from strange locations___Ogden Utah for instance.
That Citizens United Act has upset the nations political balance.
I just unplug the landline and don't answer. The print ads are pretty amazing, full color double sided 8x10's, doesn't come cheap to just go to the gargabe, what a waste of money.
I heard an Allen West ad on the radio yesterday; that he will save your medicare and his opponent voted to end medicare! His opponent, Patrick Murphy, has never even held office!
Did you get that movie about Pres. Obama in the mail? What a disgrace. This weekend is going to be brutal, they'll both be here in Boca Raton with a rally for the President at the Delray Tennis Center on Tuesday. I live about 4 miles from Lynn Univ.

There are a dozen other sites that list the age lower, some as low as 57. There is a missing ingredient in the Powers figures. The Escalade, or perhaps the leases.

THE WHITE MAJORITY A commercial middle class of merchants, bankers, factors, and
lawyers emerged to sell southern crops on the world market. They lived in cities that acted as
shipping centers for agricultural goods. Two-thirds of all southern whites lived in
nonslaveholding families. Most yeomen were self-sufficient farmers whose strong sense of
community was reinforced by close kin connections and bartering. But between 30 to 50 percent
of southern whites were landless. These poor whites lived a marginal existence as laborers and
tenants, at odds with slaves, but also engaging in complex and sometimes clandestine relations
with them. Some yeomen hoped to acquire slaves themselves, but many were content with selfsufficient
non-market agriculture. Yeomen supported slavery because they believed that it
brought them higher status.
PLANTERS Most slaveholders owned only a few slaves and frequently drifted in and out of
that status as bad crops or high prices curtailed or increased their income. Middle-class
professionals had an easier time climbing the ladder of success. Andrew Jackson used his legal
and political position to rise in Southern society. Beginning as a landless prosecutor, he died a
plantation owner with over 200 slaves.
Most slaveholders inherited their wealth but sought to expand it. As slavery spread so did the
slave-owning elite. The extraordinary concentration of wealth in places like Natchez created an
elite lifestyle. But most wealthy planters lived fairly isolated lives. Although some planters
cultivated an image of gracious living in the style of English aristocrats, the reality was that
plantations were large enterprises that required much attention to a variety of tasks. Plantations
aimed to be self-sufficient.
