Fox News Lost the Election Too, But Let's Not Gloat

When Homer saw which way the race was headed I turned on Fox News to see how they would spin it. The Karl Rove complete and total meltdown was the highlight of the year.

Most rightwingers are typical wrong about stuff and when this was literally shoved in his face he basically snapped.

But Hamilton county, the votes! Ohio! NOOOOOOOOOO!

United States corporate profits reached a record high in the third quarter of this year, even adjusted for inflation, according to a report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Dear Rightwingers,
Time to replace that 10 year old car and those other urable goods that are on their last legs.
They are simply not going to last another 4 years.
This will help put Americans back to work, increase tax revenue and at the end of the day provide you with peace of mind in not having to worry about your son or daughter being stranded on the side of the road in a broken down jalopy.
Sincerely,
The Economy
P.S. And remember to buy those goods at your local stores and not at Walmart which is just helping to perpetuate the annihilation of the middle class.
Dear Homer-

Yew pretty smert some days :-).

Perspective for times when Walmart makes common sense--supporting the workforce of America is a GOOD thing--not a BAHHHHduh thing.

Welcome to the age of the new world order, middle class modest, fixed and limited incomes, non-pie in the sky (or upanynesownbuttsinignoranceand denial) dweams and REALITY in general. Course some that's always been the same anyway---just SOME of us are a lot BETTER at handling reality lol.

This was very much an election pitting the interests of the very rich against those of the middle class and the poor.

And the Obama campaign won largely by disregarding the warnings of squeamish “centrists” and embracing that reality, stressing the class-war aspect of the confrontation. This ensured not only that President Obama won by huge margins among lower-income voters, but that those voters turned out in large numbers, sealing his victory.

The important thing to understand now is that while the election is over, the class war isn’t. The same people who bet big on Mr. Romney, and lost, are now trying to win by stealth — in the name of fiscal responsibility — the ground they failed to gain in an open election.

Morning Folks,

Thought I'd let ya'll know how your tax dollars are being spent.

Oct....can't recall all the Doctor visits but I shopped around for bargins and took the most expensive ones.

Nov....Dentist, error, I pay for that myself. To be honest dentist's are a rip off of Medicare funds. It's really just a scam, I've done my best to get it cut out.

Nov. 25th. Look out, I blew the budget wide open. Had blown out blood vessels in the esophogus and gut, not a preety site. Wife switced hats to abulance driver. She broke the record from here to there. Decided I was not done tossing up blood and headed to the Lav. Wife in hot persuit with wheel chair. In the middle of a big purge I kinda asked her to get someone to help. She only heard help and thought this would be a good time to wipe my mouth. Bad Idea, never block the exit in the middle of a blood vomit. Enter a real nurse wisking me off to behind the curtains and leaving the Men's Room looking like a Crime scene.

About that time my heart thought it was a good time to just quiver, not good for pumping blood. Long story short, heart got back into rythem, 2 blood transfusions, into the operating room, banded off 5 vessels.

I'm worth it folks, I'm worth it!

Today is some heart expert that will work on the heart quiver issue. Looks like an upgrade to a defib.

Keep smiling! Can someone lead a hand, this cross is getting heavy.

For one thing, Jesus was the ultimate liberal. He reached out to the poor and castigated the rich.
I've had my issues with the Catholic bishops on issues like marriage equality and contraception where they were trying to impose their own values on the population as a whole but in this case they're right. Even a non believer should be able to see that further enriching the already wealthy on the backs of the middle class and poor is immoral.
By the way I do attend church services on a regular basis and have never suggesting disbanding religion.
So Dupont, do you think the PA will start trying to climb out of of the dark age barbarics it's cleaved to for the past thirty years, put down it's bombs and rambo artillary, grow the flick up, get some brains somewhere and act like decent human beings rather than rabid animals set on course of annilhalating civilization like the terrorist they've acted like for so long?

will this work?
Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.
"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/21/business/wo...
so let's sum it up in my own words....
There is no one person or thing to blame for the housing bust. It was a combination of policies from 2 different administrations. To lay the blame for it upon anything but is just plain ignorance.
happy now?
Bush was a progressive. When are you going to understand that and quit playing the left/right games the progressives have set up for you?
