Been busy with this task for lo these many years, and, like Hercules, am determined to continue scraping the muck out of the damn stables until it's gone, even if I sometimes feel like Sisyphus rather than Hercules.

I'm not afraid to howl in the wilderness, either.

Not Peppy; he posted that all Democrats and Liberals don't work, are lazy and on welfare. He's gone over the bridge to the far right nutcases that can't get over the fact that Mitt couldn't buy the election.
And Carol? She's even more anti American woman than before.
Will the party go far, far right? or moderate? They're having meetings about immigration reform! After years of screaming about the Mexicans taking their jobs?
Okay, duly noted, so just Katherine and Realtime.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— Construction on new homes rose in October to the highest rate in more than four years, government data showed Tuesday, in another sign of a strengthening U.S. housing market.
Housing starts rose 3.6% last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 894,000, the highest rate since July 2008, the U.S. Department of Commerce reported. Starts are up 42% from last year, though the rate remains far below a bubble peak of almost 2.3 million in 2006.

Why do people get bonuses?
If Romney had any class he would have donated his nearly 1 Million dollar take from the closing of Sensata and given it to the employees.
Homer gets bonuses every year, of course we make a profit every year. When we made no profit years ago, no bonuses.

Always with the hate.

I wish they could just realize that they have every right to NOT use birth control themselves, and that if they have a problem selling it, they should take the 'PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY' to work for a pharmacy which doesn't offer it for sale.

Should a Jewish check-out person at the grocery store be allowed to refuse to sell pork products and shellfish?

Same exact thing.

Fifty Shades of Khaki

The farcical epic of General David Petraeus

....You didn’t need special insider’s access to know that Broadwell wasn’t the only one with whom the general did calisthenics. The FBI didn’t need to investigate. Even before she came on the scene, scads of columnists, pundits, reporters, and politicians were in bed with him. And weirdly enough, many of them still are.(Typical was NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams mournfully discussing the “painful” resignation of “Dave”–“the most prominent and best known general of the modern era.”) Adoring media people treated him like the next military Messiah, a combination of Alexander the Great, Napoleon, and Ulysses S. Grant rolled into one fabulous piñata. It’s a safe bet that no general of our era, perhaps of any American era, has had so many glowing adjectives attached to his name.

Perhaps Petraeus’s single most insightful moment, capturing both the tragedy and the farce to come, occurred during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He was commanding the 101st Airborne on its drive to Baghdad, and even then was inviting reporters to spend time with him. At some point, he said to journalist Rick Atkinson,“Tell me how this ends.” Now, of course, we know: in farce and not well.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

....think of the Petraeus version of collapse as a tryout for the fall of the American empire, writ very small, with Jill Kelley and Paula Broadwell as our Gibbons and the volume of email, including military sexting, taking the place of his six volumes. A poster general for American decline, David Petraeus will be a footnote to history, a man out for himself who simply went a bridge or a book too far. George W. and crew were the real thing: genuine mad visionaries who simply mistook their dreams and fantasies for reality.

But wasn’t it fun while it lasted? Wasn’t it a blast to occupy Washington, be treated as a demi-god, go to Pirate-themed parties in Tampa with a 28-motorcycle police escort, and direct your own biography… even if it did end as Fifty Shades of Khaki?

Duh!!

The average life expectancy of Americans jumped 2.7 years after news broke on Friday that Hostess Brands will close operations.

The Food and Drug Administration, along with the U.S. Census Bureau, released a report on Friday showing that life expectancy futures in the U.S. rose to 81.9 years, up from 78.2 on the announcement that Hostess will end its production of such carb coma-inducing baked goods as Twinkies,“Fruit” Pies, donettes and Ho Hos.

After-hours trading on Friday did see life expectancy figures drop back down below the 81-year level as the American public made a run on grocery stores and gas stations to buy up the millions of Hostess treats currently on the shelves. But experts believe that number will recover by Monday as America gets past its Twinkie-fueled weekend sugar rush.
