Coal-fired plants do nothing but destroy the environment and thousands of Americans die from radiation sickness from nuclear plants every year. The Amish have the right idea. Heck, Obama's brother in Kenya doesn't have electricity and he does just fine. I say go back to the days of wood stoves and candlelight. America was a much better, happier place in those days.
I prefer the U.N. plan that would have us all squatting around dung-fires naked eating fece-cake. It's more "back to nature"

The jobs numbers came out on Friday, slightly higher than expected. Unemployment up to 7.9%

The .1% uptick reflected the bureau of labor's anticipation of the unemployment stemming from the loss for the Romney campaign today.

Oh yeah, it's true. Cannot lie, cheat or steal THIS election!

Romney can just head to the caymans and curl up and cry with his money after this is all over.

Poor pathetic sad evil soulless man...

Crock of BS. First of all, we here in Florida did NOT HAVE our early voting days rolled back. All days were available by law to us, and the law says early voting ends 3 days prior to election. So there's a big FAT lie.
Secondly, how on earth is tea party presence going to "intimidate and harass voters?" It's not like the black panthers who stand outside with WEAPONS for Pete's sake. Li'l ol' Republican ladies standing around observing isn't much of a threat, in my book.
Long lines? Traditional on the traditional actual election Tuesday.
You guys need to "stand down," you're beginning to look silly.
If Obama wins then we'll be talking about a whole bunch of right wing 'silly'.

Why you folks walk out on these limbs is beyond me. Gluttons for punishment?

Do you suppose the government is checking the calorie content of the food before they deliver it to the starving people? Could explain the delay.
Maybe, but I think the delays may also be caused because FEMA is having trouble negotiating a contract with the Teamster's Union delivery drivers.

<quoted text>I bet you are correct. But it's kind of strange. Most everyone at The Villages get a government check each month and almost all of them are on that universal government health care called Medicare.
Everyone at the Villages was coerced into participating in Social Security and Medicare. Everyone at the Villages could have done a lot better if they were allowed to provide for themselves. duh

If they can get to the polls to vote, they sure as hell could have gotten somewhere and received a picture ID.
How does one exist in this country if you cannot prove your identity, to rent a home, to drive a car, to cash a check, to sign up for "gubment" programs.
Here's a simple thought. When the voter rolls are checked at the polls, the identity of the voter is verified. That way people can't vote for their aunt who passed away, for their neighbor they know will not vote, for someone they paid not to show up at the polls.
What is the problem?????????? And, seriously, why do you feel republications can figure out how to carry ID and democrats cannot. Are you a raaaacist?
Taking all of the suppression tactics as a whole would indicate that you need come up with a better argument.

Plagarism - what a pin headed Romney supporter does when they can't think for themselves. Quoting a blog that makes up words because they lack the intelligence to use proper English language.

Obama's heritage is NOT of Negro Slaves of America...

Obama is NOT an authentic, true, bonafide brother nor a descendant of Black U.S. History, but only "OUTSOURCED" with Kenyan roots, a Muslim Heritage, and Irish white mother, a Trojan Horse sellout Obama to fool the white idiot and unconscious Black race...

Let's all be prepared for the worst - both sides - and be elated if Romney does win - both sides.(Even if you didn't vote for him, you will be eventually.)

But some of us do need to be prepared for the worst if, God forbid, it does happen.

Vote Romney/Ryan = A brighter future for America!

Gallup published one last set of results yesterday, wrapping up the 2012 campaign season.

Gallup found President Obama with a three-point lead among registered voters, and Mitt Romney with a one-point lead among likely voters.

Gallup found that a 52% majority now approve of how Obama is doing his job. The final Washington Post/ABC News poll showed a similar result, with Obama scoring a 51% approval rating, tied for its highest point since the president ordered the strike on Osama bin Laden.

And why does this matter? Because there's no modern precedent for Americans defeating an incumbent president with an approval rating this high.

Bye bye Mitt....Sail off into the sunset and take all your crap on a stick with you. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

Obama told Jon Stewart during a Comedy Central Daily Show taping that the deaths of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were “not optimal.”

This comes just weeks after President Obama told CBS News’ Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes that the murders of four Americans in Benghazi were “bumps in the road.”

So why aren't there any black Tea Party poll 'monitors'?
Isn't it illegal to pass out free stuff outside a polling place? Better work to change that law, rather than bytch about it. Also the one about the felons.

Work within the system, don't wait until the last minute and pretent you're not being treated like everyone else under the law.
