I'm self employed, as a licensed massage therapist, thanks. But that's because I have more gumption (not to mention self-respect) than the average bible-thumpin', lotsa-kids-pumpin', snake-handlin', food-stamp sellin', meth cook.

Every day it's more hand wringing from Chicken Little.
So tell us, Ms. Little, how many of your ominous predictions have come true in the past?
Oh, right...ZERO.
Just an objective analysis.

But as long as Obama is still sitting on the throne, all is right with the world in your parallel universe.

The Dow went up again. Economists say it's not because of anything we're doing but economic instability in other countries making us look like the prettiest horse in the glue factory.

Bruce Carroll, outgoing co-founder of gay Republican group GOProud, thinks Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has served in Washington for long enough.
In an open letter posted to Gay Patriot on Monday, Carroll announced his resignation from GOProud, saying he was moving on to weigh his options for challenging Graham:
one gay challenging another....carroll is toast before stepping into the toaster.

That poor man who got sucked into that sink hole while sleeping in his bed is still there.

I feel sorry for the family. Don't know when or how they will be able to recover his body.

A man with at least four weapons including a military-style M4 assault rifle is in police custody after he allegedly killed at least one while shooting up a bar in North Fayette, Pennsylvania.
Allegheny County police said that the shooter may have been talking on the phone to his girlfriend at the Fort Pitt Inn before briefly leaving. He later returned to the bar with three weapons and opened fire, according to KDKA.
The station reported that one of the two men who were shot in the neck and head died from his injuries. The other man was at a local hospital in critical condition.

<quoted text>No, companies are holding back on hiring, no doubt a lot are owned by pasty middle-aged white guys like Galt who listen to Fox News 24/7, live in fear, and would rather see to it that Obama fails then do what's right. Every company we try and buy product from has no stock, hire some people you cheap bastards.
Obamacare makes full-time employees a liability, to be minimized as much as possible.

Welcome to the new reality.

Well, duh...do I have a choice? Of course I'm going to live my life.

But is it okay to state the obvious and make a simple observation in the meantime?

If a catastrophic event happens, it happens. I believe there's a much bigger plan - or haven't I mentioned that before?
