Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

He just had to complete and clean up the mess from the previous administration.
A normal business cycle made worse by Obama's clueless meddling.

lol! I still recall "drill, baby, drill."

And today, there's less drilling....

Yet, the US is now an net exporter of gas.....

While refineries are closed....

And cons blame Obama for high gas prices....

And they have no idea how all of this is related!

It's so comical!

"So, when the economy still sucks in 2016, fools like you will still be blaming Bush."
Seems clear to me that's your plan and/or hope!
Like I said... so unAmerican!
A poor economy extending through 2016 is inevitable because of Obama's incompetent policies.

Not my plan or my hope, but Obama's grand design.

Hear Hear or Here Here?
Posted on November 10, 2008 by Abacquer

So today I found myself agreeing with someone online and went to type “hear hear” but then remembered seeing someone else type “here here” a couple days earlier.

I was pretty sure the correct phrase was “hear hear” as opposed to the other variants I'd seen (“here here”,“hear here”,“here hear”) but I'd never actually looked it up. So I decided to check popular internet usage using Google:

“hear hear”= 1,740,000 hits

“here here”= 3,880,000 hits

“hear here”= 307,000 hits

“here hear”= 334,000 hits

Well dang. According to popular usage twice as many people say “here here” than say “hear hear”. But is that correct? Wikipedia says no:

Hear hear (Wikipedia):
…Hear, hear is an expression used as a short repeated form of hear ye and hear him. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker.

It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as “the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons”, with many purposes depending on the intonation of its user. It is often incorrectly spelled “here here”, especially on websites…

A quick double check of OneLook Dictionary Search confirms this. Six dictionaries list “hear hear” and only one lists “here here”(and that one happens to be the wiki article above.)

Popular usage drives the movement of meaning, though, so at some point in the future “here here” may end up being the correct phrase if we don't do something about it.

So if you want to avoid yet another English colloquialism that will have your great grandchildren scratching their heads and saying “WTF?”(or whatever kids will be saying in those days) then type “hear hear” at every opportunity.

That's your wish upon America and Americans to further conservative agendas.

In other words, it's simply your opinion.

And you can have a million of those. It doesn't magically turn them into facts by any stretch of the imagination!

Just because a lot of ignorant fools on the internet agree with you does not justify your ignorance.

Bigotry ,racism and hatred are far more advanced sign of ignorance than is spelling. Actually spelling has absolutly nothing to do with ones intelligence, a number of the smartest people in the world were terrible spellers, including Einstein, F.D.R, Kennedy and a host of others. So as always old Galt is wrong and clueless once again. Maybe we should simply pity the fool...
