Obama ain't gonna do DIDDLY! Neither could that moron Romney if he had been elected. Both those guys just talked a bunch of jive, making a lot of promises that will soon be forgotten.

@Sister Kathryn Lust:
"Gee, Nuc, I sure wish that were true. I was raised by two different 'dads', one my father, and one my mother's 2nd husband, and their view of unions was radically different. My father saw them as a scourge (he sold steel pipe and tube to various oil companies for a living) and the other saw them as a tool (he was one of only three County Commissioners, of the 77 counties in the State we lived in, NOT to be indicted for malfeasance of public funds in 1981.) Neither harbored any illusions that the Unions were working for the working man, even 30 years ago."
Apparently, your father and stepfather didn't know many Union working men. My husband was a Journeyman electrician for 42 years and I can tell you that without the Union, he wouldn't have received the wages he deserved. He worked in construction, often out in harsh weather or dangerous surroundings and conditions. Thank goodness for OSHA, too. I'm not sure at this point, where Unions are headed, and there may be some that are bad, but not all. Without Unions for some types of jobs, people wouldn't be paid what they're worth - slave labor, and working conditions would be unsafe, just as it once was back in the Great Depression days. I know not everyone will agree with me, but the Union was a Godsend for our family and I'm grateful for it.
I neglected to mention my Father-in-Law, who was both a Federal Felon (convicted of selling dynamite) and a Union Man until his death. The Union shops in Modesto were unmoved by his felon status, and were happy to take his dues. He was a member of both the Hell's Angels, and the ACG, and neither did him dirtier than he did anyone in the course of his tree surgery career. OSHA was his friend more than once.

This life is not black and white, but innumerable shades of purple.

Plenty of talk on here about butt sex from everybody, so I'm not very concerned with who can be the most salacious. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Meh, I don't really care. Carol talks about babies being stabbed in the head to make her point. Debil talks about babies being stabbed in the head to make his point. What's the difference? And butt sex aside, Debil's stories regarding racism and other topics slam home (lol) some hard truths we still don't want to accept even today. The idea that people want to secede and go back in time to such a dark part of our American history is unbelievable.
When that poster cites the original author I will read his posts. I don't like it when people take credit for other's work.
For some reason, I hoped you would bypass 'salacious' for 'cogent'.

C'est la vie.

I find nothing on this thread 'unbelievable' in terms of what humans are willing to say on an anonymous internet forum.

Jus' sayin'.

It's the culture all right, especially when you're talking Chicago Dem dumbhole. It's Obama all right, crime, slime, highest paid, yet dumbest teachers in the US, big, dumb, and black. Just like our joke for a president. What a cowardly piece of crap this tool is. Just like you Dem. Just look at yourself. Dems are losers. The welfare kings. Always with the hand out. Never can do for themselves. Foodstamps, welfare, etc. Just a bunch of fu--king losers.

Find a talent, skill, or inclination, and start a business of your own, if you haven't already.

Self-sufficiency is the American Dream.
Grab it - there's NEVER been a better time to capitalize on your strengths, at the expense of the weakness of others.

Twas ever thus, and ever shall be.

Adapt.
Improvise.
Overcome.

Or die instead, whichever you prefer.

Please indulge me. But since it seems we're winding down a bit, I felt compelled to post this for some reason.
To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Being the eternal optimist and all.
I have always enjoyed The Byrds version:

Wiki - Turn! Turn! Turn!: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn !_Turn!_Turn!

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

"A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together" is missing from your version and I find that phrase intriguing.

So...what Season & Time are we to be in right at this moment?

I believe it should be "A time to rend ... and a time to speak"

You are speaking well, carol. We need some rendering, however.
