So how are you doing Tenzing? Really. Do you still live where your animals were or have you moved?
I hope you're doing okay and getting on with your life again. I really do.
I'm doing extremely well thankyouverymuch.

I'm going on vacation to Europe next week, what are you doing?

I'm actually looking first to states having the power to manage their own affairs instead of the federal government micromanaging every aspect of our lives.
Which is a big reason why I'm voting for Romney.
Don't know about those on the left. They like big government just the way it is.
Glad at least you don't. But you just vote for people who will never be elected and complain about the ones who are.
I don't know if you've noticed but States have governments too. State's rights are a distinction without a difference in case you were trying to pay attention in Foxland.

They weren't asking for crap Homer--they NEED access to FOOD and water.

Granola is actually an EXCELLENT choice-energy wise AND health wise...NO electricity required.

See how LOGIC, rationality, stability and common sense actually work now--when there's people in leadership positions that actually have some?

Voters will be getting their last glimpse of the crucial monthly jobs data from the federal government on Friday, three days before heading to the polls to choose who will occupy the White House for the next four years.

This so-called headline jobless rate, cited most frequently despite its limitations, is expected to edge up to 7.9 percent in October, after it dropped to 7.8 percent in September from 8.1 percent in August.

"The U.S. economy remains locked on an anemic growth path into the elections and fiscal cliff,” said Benjamin Engen, a market economist for Action Economics.

That could add fuel to Romney's assertions that Obama’s policies have held back hiring during one of the slowest economic recoveries in a half century.

The pace of growth hasn’t been strong enough to spark enough hiring to bring the jobless rate down to levels normally seen four years after the end of a recession.

The sluggish pace of hiring has also been blamed on increasing uncertainty by business managers about the state of the economy next year if the next Congress and White House proceed with a large package of tax increases and spending cuts. The so-called “fiscal cliff” was intended to force Congress to commit to reining in budget deficits. But most economists warn that, unless modified or postponed, the measure will almost certainly tip the economy back into recession next year.

...NBC News, mind you, reporting that unless Congress commits to reining in budget deficits, it "will almost certainly tip the economy back into recession next year."

Let's try and recall who rejected reining in budget deficits...

Whatever Tenzing. I'm too tired to go around and around in circles and end up going nowhere with your kind of logic tonight.

But I hope you're doing well.

Later.
