Peppy's not around today, he's off to Homer, Alaska for their annual Clubbing A Baby Seal Festival. He's even had a special club made, with 'Sealed Your Fate' engraved on it.

Jacksonians believe that self-reliance is the cornerstone for any society and contributing back to society by taking care of ourselves and our families is first and foremost.
That certainly doesn't describe Obama.
Maybe I read your post wrong.
And Jefferson warned us about an overpowerful central government. Are you finding fault with the founding father whose vision helped to create this great experiment of government by the people and for the people?
Or did I read that wrong too?
Do I DARE disagree with Jefferson, Jackson, Hamilton, et al? Yes. No man is beyond fault.

Jacksonian believed that all citizens have a right to take part in choosing leaders and running government - but he also strongly believed in the slave system. Jefferson believed that property owners should be allowed to vote, the elite should run government and that presidential candidates should be chosen not by public convention, but by political caucus.

A libtard that has nothing to do all day except leech off society has the time to nit pick. Having no common sense, she thinks this forum is a place where people actually care about what she says. What a waste of organic matter.

DOW futures down 34 but that doesn't mean anything right now. However if it is down over 50 at the close you may see a major sell off on Friday.
Or not.

Funny how it works like that. It goes up and down.......EVERYDAY!

Chatter: righties here say stop all unemployment comp? "Make them work" huh? They can't find jobs. Should they literally starve in between jobs?

That's why Obama the genius borrows now at 1.6% interest rate, long term, he knows we can't turn our backs on the economy and the people.

Borrow now for things we need now. Pay it back when this economy hits full throttle: real soon!

Problem solved. Everyone that voted for Bush in the past has to pay for ALL the mess. Economic Problem Solved. They may also need to pickup the tab on the 30000 troops that came back wounded looking for those WMDs.

Compliments of Sel
Dear Red States:
We're ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving.
We in New York intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.
In case you aren't aware that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Maryland and the rest of the Northeast.
We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal, Mitch Mcconnell, and Todd Akin.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Opryland.
We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.
We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.
You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.
With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.
We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% say that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals than the rest of the planet.
We're taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.
Citizen of the Enlightened States of America
As a typical libtard you neglect that actions have consequences. Just how many rich people do you think would flee the blue states taking their money and business with them realizing that will be solely responsible for taking care of the moochers? Also how many moochers will flee the red states to the blue states when they realize the mooching is over there? That's the problem with libtards they never think of the unintended consequences.

So, even you think the purpose of the rich, is to 'give' you a job.

The irony is palpable.

Of course climate change is real. It changes about four times a year in most places. Why just a few months ago it was in the 90's here. Now it's in the 40's. Indisputable proof that climate change is real!

Liberty to Lie
This election may go down in history as the moment when truth and lies lost their honor and stigma, respectively.
Mitt Romney has demonstrated an uncanny, unflinching willingness to say anything and everything to win this election. And that person, the unprincipled prince of untruths, is running roughly even with or slightly ahead of the president in the national polls.
What does this say about our country? What does it say about the value of virtue?
The list of Romney’s out-and-out lies (and yes, there is no other more polite word for them) is too long to recount here. So let’s just take one of the most recent ones: the utterly false claim that General Motors and Chrysler shipped, or planned to ship, American auto jobs to China.....
Ever notice how FOX defended Mitt's lies?
Well first you have to realize that most of the lies came from FOX....
Like that 'terror' thing. When you make some talking head from CNN look good, well.......
Where is the list of Obama's out and out lies? You can start with his autobiographies. Or even just the lies by omission.

Like the lie omitted about the taxes the rich are not paying is infinitesimal compared to the taxes that will now fall on the middle class, courtesy of Obamacare.

Omitted is the fact that Obamacare represents the single largest tax hike in America’s history.

Obama has blamed George Bush, the Congress, and now the rich for destroying the economy and jobs; but he has carefully omitted the fact that the huge bloc of voters between the ages of 18 to 29 has had a 12.8% unemployment rate since he took office, and there is no relief in sight. This is the largest group of supporters he had in 2008. Not mentioning this fact worked toward his re-election.

If Obama outright lies and/or lies by omission but the media doesn't report it, is it still a lie?
