Go get fitted for a leaf blower today. Don't wait for the crowds to form on November 7th.
If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens here. Take one of those jobs.
There's some really bad news for you in your future. You're going to have to become self-reliant.

You don't cut 22% of non military spending without reverberations.
Thousands of insurance company employees will lose their jobs when Romney repeals the ACA.
30 million illegals? If Romney wins they will self deport. I wonder why?
Illegal aliens self-deporting....
Perhaps because we're going to stop paying people to not do the work they came here to do, and those people who wasted every opportunity they had will have to take those jobs to eat and have a place to live.

I'm not in favor of that. I think every illegal alien WORKING should get a H1b work visa.
... and that's all. No path to citizenship implied. Just the opportunity to work here and support their family THAT LIVES IN THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.
The path to citizenship remains unchanged. Any immigrant will have to go through the same process that every other LEGAL immigrant had to complete.

Then, we'll see how Obama's base feels about not taking advantage of every opportunity to become self-reliant, like has been their history for more than a generation.

First, we're going to stop paying people to not work.
That, by itself, should significantly help reduce the grotesquely obese deficit you Democrats created.

Good.
As Joe Biden told you, every job the government creates will cost 2 jobs lost in the economy.
So, according to Joe Biden, every government pink slip equates to 2 job openings in the economy.
Those govenment workers laid off because the government is just too big for the economy to support will have a job available to them.
... but, I doubt those jobs will have the perks a government job has, like going to Las Vegas and making a video of wasting the taxpayers money in a sea of debauchery reminiscent of orgies in Neru's palace.
What jobs? You just added millions to the unemployment rolls. No just government jobs.

The ‘I’ of the Storm

The dramatic homestretch ad for President Obama, running on every network and in all media markets, is a home run, devastating for Mitt Romney.

And, best of all, the president didn’t have to pay for it, or even say,“I approve this message.” It was a total gift — and from a Republican and top Romney surrogate.

Gov. Chris Christie, the fleece-wearing, order-barking Neptune of the Jersey Shore, was all over TV Tuesday, effusively praising the president for his luminous leadership on Hurricane Sandy, the same president he mocked last week at a Romney rally in Virginia as a naif groping to find “the light switch of leadership.”

As Romney roams the Midwest and Florida struggling to stay relevant, miming coordinating storm response with G.O.P. governors and collecting canned goods to send East, his fair-weather pal Christie failed to give Mittens any disaster relief.

On ABC, CBS and NBC, Christie hailed Obama as “outstanding.” On MSNBC, he said the president “has been all over this,” and on CNN, he called Obama “incredibly supportive.” The big guy even tweeted his thanks to the slender one.

Most astonishing of all, the New Jersey governor went on Fox News and spoke words rarely heard on that network:“I have to give the president great credit.”

“I spoke to the president three times yesterday,” Christie gushed.“He called me for the last time at midnight last night, asking what he could do.”

Christie also extolled FEMA, even though Romney has said it is “immoral” to spend money on federal disaster relief when the deficit is so big.

“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy must have forgotten Christie’s self-regarding keynote speech at Romney’s convention, which had more “I” than “he” in it. Doocy asked Christie if there was “any possibility that Governor Romney may go to New Jersey to tour some of the damage with you?” The governor replied dismissively:“I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” adding:“If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me.”

White House officials seemed a bit flummoxed by Christie’s bearhug.“It’s unnerving,” one laughed, noting how odd it is that a Romney big gun might help break the stubborn tie in the electorate in Obama’s favor.

They speculate that Christie, who always puts Christie first, has decided that it’s better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue-state governor with a Democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have President Romney and Tea-Party Republicans in Congress pulling him over to the extreme right for the next eight years. He also knows he’ll need a boatload of federal cash to make his state whole again.

Interesting.... this could explain why it seems someone in the White House is feeding real-time information to Al Qaeda:

As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues. Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada:'There is no god except Allah.'
There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached.
Muslims recite the Shahada when they wake up in the morning and before they go to sleep at night. It is repeated five times every day in the call to prayer in every mosque. A single honest recitation of the Shahada in Arabic is all that is required for a person to convert to Islam.
By wearing this religious statement on one’s hand, it connects the person to Islam. It is worn in hopes that Allah’s protections would be with the person, in hopes of gaining favor with Allah.
Though Islamic law prohibits the wearing of gold jewelry by men, it is a widely accepted custom, even in strictly Muslim countries. The wearing of gold rings is even more acceptable when it contains a religious message, such as ‘There is no god except Allah

http://digitaljournal.com/article/334703#ixzz...

George Soros’ Snopes site disputes this.
This could be just another of many of Soros’“false” claims with non-existent “sources” and erroneous and/or fraudulent information it. Snopes has lost all credibility in the internet world. That’s why it’s very seldom a reference anymore. And when it is used, it’s a piece of cake to take it apart.

For some reason, Obama wore this ring on his ring finger long before he even met Michelle Robinson, and this very same ring he wore before he met Michelle is the ring Michelle put on his wedding ring finger and he wears today.

I have to believe the version given by Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel.“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached.”

in 1990, students published a satirical edition of the Harvard Law Review that contained a mock profile advertisement about Obama that listed one of his “Accomplishments” as “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring On Left Hand.”
Obama's critics and opponents would like to believe that the "mysterious" ring is conclusive evidence that Obama is Muslim. And that is the view that Pamela Geller expresses when she writes in Atlas Shrugs:
"I'd like to see one member of the press corps ask Obama about this. It certainly jives with Obama's islamophilia and his pro-sharia foreign policies, and with his extensive Muslim background, as detailed in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America."

Hi-Res Image of Barack Obama's Wedding Ring

Contrary to what has been claimed in various online sources, President Obama's gold wedding ring does not feature the Muslim saying "No God but Allah" in Arabic script. It bears no visible inscription at all, only an abstract design.

As you can see in the viral illustration at right, someone has worked very diligently to make it appear as though certain Arabic characters match certain lines and shadows on the face of Obama's ring. But, as you can also see, the alleged correspondence isn't just forced, it's utterly reliant on the defects of fuzzy, low-resolution images. Compare those to the high-res close-up above, in which you'll see nothing remotely resembling Arabic calligraphy, just abstract shapes. Albeit worn and damaged, the serpentine pattern in the upper half of the design mirrors that in the lower half. If there's any inscription on the ring at all, it's on the inner surface where we can't see it.
