Breaking News: Mayor Bloomberg has just finished a speech in N.Y. He announced that progress is being made in negotiations between the Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the power companies and that power in N.Y. may be back on as early as Wednesday, but definitely no later than next Saturday. If it's not back on by Saturday he will seriously consider signing an executive order allowing non-union workers to perform the work. Union leaders expressed outrage, stating that Mayor Bloomberg is "stealing food from their children's mouths" and is just trying to "bust the unions". They have vowed to hold their ground until their demands are met.

<quoted text>I voted for President Obama to keep fighting these Repubs that want to continue to protect the rich at the cost of the middle class. Which part do you Repubs not understand about numbers? 20 years. Middle class gains 18% on incomes. Same 20 years. Top gains 275%. The difference between the top and middle class in the US is greater than anytime since 1915.
Nobama isn't going to protect anyone, except himself, which he's done in spades. Never had a job, never needs a job, and the taxpayer pays the bill? He has outdone P.T. Barnum. Whata Country!!

You're full of crap as usual Carol. Obama is merely being conciliatory and won't go with Romney's ideas which have already been shown to be unworkable.
Mark Zandi who was a McCain campaign advisor and now chief economist at Moody's Analytics stated;
Our major conclusion is that a revenue-neutral individual income tax change that incorporates the features Governor Romney has proposed – including reducing marginal tax rates substantially, eliminating the individual alternative minimum tax (AMT) and maintaining all tax breaks for saving and investment – would provide large tax cuts to high-income households, and increase the tax burdens on middle- and/or lower-income taxpayers.

From all indications, Boehner is not going to stand in Obama's way. I hope he doesn't. Whatever happens will be your party's baby. If we're going over the cliff, Republicans should get out of the way to be blameless.

It might be what has to happen for America to finally wake up once and for all. We'll pick up the pieces in 2016 when the democrat party is no more if we survive.

There were a few times in my lifetime when the Democrat Party, from all appearances, seemed to be extinct as well.

The Republicans will still be around in 2016 with a broadened base to pick up the pieces. Just like they've always done.

Maher: Republicans are ‘vaginaphobes,’ should probably ‘shut up’ about rape
Bill Maher started off Real Time on Nov. 9 by conducting a quick recap of the elections, noting that there will now be six openly gay men in Congress, a bisexual woman and an openly gay female senator, while pot was legalized in two states.“We’re becoming more like Canada, and we still have our nukes,” he quipped

Throughout the presidential campaign, Republicans repeatedly accused the Obama administration of waging a "war on coal." This despite the fact that the number of coal jobs is actually higher now than it was when President Obama took office, and that many of the reasons the industry has lost jobs in the past year have nothing to do with Obama—like the lower demand for coal because of cheap natural gas or declining quality in reserves.

Now that Obama won, at least one mining executive is aiming to make the "war on coal" real by laying off a bunch of workers. In Carbon County, Utah (yes, that's really its name), UtahAmerican Energy Inc. announced on Thursday that it has laid off 102 employees in response to Obama's reelection. It is a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp., which is, as you may recall, the same company that told Ohio miners that they had to attend a Romney rally in August and that reportedly threatened employees' jobs if they didn't support the company's conservative-aligned political action committee.

http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/11/coal-...

Murray has been very clear about his political views. He doesn't like Obama. It's hard not to see the layoffs as political—especially since others in the coal industry aren't predicting quite the gloomy outlook that Murray is.

And in an ironic twist, one of the reasons coal demand is down in the US, according to the CEO of another coal company, is because warmer weather means people don't need to heat their homes as much.

Greg Boyce, CEO of Peabody Energy, a major coal producer, told an earnings conference call that his company continues to expect a decline of approximately 120 million tons in coal use for power generation this year.“The worst of this impact has already occurred, with the U.S. down some 100 million tons, mostly from coal-to-gas switching that was front-loaded in the first half of the year,” he said.

John Eaves, president and CEO of Arch Coal, told his company’s earnings conference call that 2011 heating degree days were nearly 25% below normal, which “dramatically impacted” coal and gas demand. He said a near-normal winter this year could lead to a “sizable step down in coal stockpiles” and “meaningful gas-to-coal switching.” The St. Louis–based company remains cautious, however, and is taking steps to manage through a “potentially challenging” 2013, he said.

Despite the cautious optimism from the coal industry’s largest producers, at least one Midwest utility said it favors natural gas for expected new generation. John Russell, president and CEO of Michigan-based CMS Energy, said his company expects that with seven of its coal plants mothballed in 2015 or 2016, and with MISO possibly increasing its reserve capacity to 18%, the utility’s capacity shortfall “could be as high as 1,500 MW.” Russell said that gas generation likely will be the fuel of choice for the new capacity, and that the company will make a decision in 2013 on what could amount to an $800 million capital investment.

<quoted text>War is good. War keeps our economy strong. The Great Depression ended because of war. The highest employment rates occur during war while at the same time uniting the nation. You think war is a bad thing but in reality, this nation wouldn't exist without war.
It wouldn't exist without air, water, and arable land, either.

But it was doing damn fine before 'Americans' got here, and it would continue to do just fine if we all disappeared in a puff of smoke.

What's your point?
