The US economy is rebounding even in my area which was ground zero for the mortgage meltdown. It might have fully recovered by 2016 meaning that it only took eight years to recover from the damage inflicted by eight years of BushCo__a true miracle for those like myself who had hitched their wagon to the real estate star.
I might actually live long enough to see my net worth return to 2001 levels. Yippee!
You think flack is beginning to sound like me?

How flattering! Thank you for that nice compliment!

But, truthfully, flack is pretty smart and insightful himself, you know.

I hope so. I seriously doubt it however. Lot of activity before the end of the year perhaps due to the tax increases. You do realize you've said that the last two winters right? Then here comes late January early February and down we go again. This spring is going to be really bad I fear.

53 to 36 percent said they trusted the president and Democrats more than Republicans to avoid the fiscal cliff.
See, that's the thing. The American people put their trust in Democrats at the voting booth last month. If they get everything they want after the first of the year, there won't be anyone else to blame. And those of us who know better won't be as nearly disappointed as I am today.
Apparently they are still putting their trust in them (53% to 36%) this month as well.

Your question wasn't deserving of a dignified answer.

Try again. Ask something a little more pertinent the next time.

Good news even in Orlando the capital of self pity

Republican Jim DeMint of South Carolina is exiting the Senate before his term is over, which is a win/win all around. He'll leave to head up the Heritage Foundation and Stephen Colbert can take his Senate seat.

Yes, you read that correctly. Under the guise of his blustery "Colbert Report" character, Stephen Colbert has launched stunt presidential bids twice, in 2008 and 2012, attempting to get on the ballot only in his native state of South Carolina. So why wouldn't he try to nab a U.S. Senate seat from the state?

After trying to run for president in 2012, he set up his own Super PAC in order to raise money for his preferred campaign causes (such as rallies for Herman Cain after he dropped out of the race). In a recent interview with Playboy, Colbert explained that he started the Super PAC as a sort of public education masked as comedy. "If you just talk about it, everyone sits on their hands and the reality of it just watches as you talk about it," he said. "But by putting yourself in it, reality has to respond to your actions."

"The Colbert Report" eventually received a Peabody Award for its Super PAC coverage.

I'll stick with the "old white mens" platform that created the greatest nation on earth, you will countinue to support a socialistic tyranny that has failed every time it has been tried. Unlike you I have no need or want for a master to think for me or take care of me.

Godwin's law It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches
In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler and the Nazis. Godwin's law often applied to threads, and has been invoked for the inappropriate use of Nazi analogies in articles or speeches
