Not a real big fan of either one. Especially since neither will be around when I become 'eligible' to get a return on my 'investment'.

Defense, yes. Foreign presence, not so much.

Bought and sold by special interests. Dump it in favor of management state to state. Give first priority to the views of our future grandchildren. End subsidies to dirty energy.(Don't outlaw fossil fuels, just stop giving their purveyors welfare.) Encourage energy co-ops within communities.

That's hilarious. Way too late for that...
Cultivate a vertical garden, and save your seed. Grow some grapes for vino. Raise enough chickens and goats to feed your family. Erect and tend a beehive.
Survival is your responsibility, and you are what you eat.
Oh, and have a bug-out plan.

Funny how no Republican Super Pac donor is happy with their purchased candidate...
Gifts? Excuses for fraud he is giving to young people to get them to vote for him?

Heads or Tails, the Obama Coalition Wins

....Here’s the situation, as Lindsey and others (like David Brooks) see it: because of immigration, automation, outsourcing, and attrition, the share of working-class whites in America is gradually diminishing. On the rise are those who are better at impulse control, long-term planning, and, yes, contraception. With helicopter parents and graduate degrees, they are far better-suited to meet the cognitive demands of an increasingly complex knowledge economy. They are waiting longer and longer to get married, if at all, and they’re having fewer children. Economically speaking, they are makers, not takers; winners, not losers. And right now, they are attached to the Democratic party.

Ross focuses on the attraction to single mothers of government transfer payments. Yet as Joel Kotkin notes, the broader picture indicates a growing number of childless single women and men, plus childless couples:

Demographically, at least in the short and even medium term, betting on singles and the childless couples seems like a no-brainer. In the past 30 years the percentage of women aged 40 to 44 who have never had children nearly doubled to 19%. At the same time singletons of both sexes are on the rise, numbering over 31 million strong today, up from 27 million in 2000, a growth rate nearly double that of the overall population.

There is simply no way to look at these trends and find good news for a political party that appeals mostly to traditionalist whites and the very rich. The promise of equality for the materially insecure and social space for the materially secure — this is the Democratic cocktail, and, for now, at least, it looks like it will win the foreseeable future. There is economic fear here, to be sure. But there’s also economic superiority.

I was feeling a little bummed out, Homer. But then decided to keep reminding myself who is in control. It really helped.

Doesn't it seem like deja vu all over again though? Raising taxes on everything and everyone, a "soak" the rich mentality and demonizing Wall Street as "fat cats" is what happened in the early 1930s and made the Great Depression a whole lot worse.

Good thing I know who's in control.

Hope you're feeling well.

Do we have the right to inspect China's factories??

Gaza is not part of Israel, it is being held as a ghetto, much as the Germans did to the Jews.
Germany tried to solve the 'Jewish Problem', but the war ended too soon.
Now th eJews have become carbon copies of the Nazi's.
Karma's a bitch, as Israel will soon find out.
If the country is suspicious, they have the right to inspect their factories. I never said america should inspect the factories moron. I said we should allow Israel to do it.

It's that whole 'Personal Responsibility' thing.

Still no word on the terrorist attacks in 11 other Middle Eastern countries either. Guess Libya occurred in a vacuum.

But "adults" will want their children to watch TV, but they can't, so is that why they have to dump it outside then is it? A better alternative would be to make it appropriate in the first place than to dump it out, you moron.
I completely disagree. Isn't America GREAT!!!!!

TV is for idiots, which is why it's known as the idiot box.

Nobody has the right to not let others inspect their factories. If Iran wants the problem resolved, they should let them, otherwise Iran is being irresponsible.

No young turd, we as the UN according to the law to enforce Iran has the factories inspected. The Irans should only allow peace if they were to have their factories inspected. Types like you see no responsibility to do whats right when you have the ability to do the right thing, you young runner rat.
Yawn.

Hint: WE are the United States. We are NOT the United Nations. The United Nations CAN KISS MY BROWN EYE.
