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

To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to?'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. There's the respect
That makes Calamity of so long life:
For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time,
The Oppressor's wrong, the proud man's Contumely,
The pangs of despised Love, the Law’s delay,
The insolence of Office, and the Spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his Quietus make
With a bare Bodkin? Who would Fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered Country, from whose bourn
No Traveller returns, Puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have,
Than fly to others that we know not of.
Thus Conscience does make Cowards of us all,
And thus the Native hue of Resolution
Is sicklied o'er, with the pale cast of Thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment,
With this regard their Currents turn awry,
And lose the name of Action. Soft you now,
The fair Ophelia? Nymph, in thy Orisons
Be all my sins remembered.

Oh, they will be. You can bank on that...

He's right. Most people just know it's wrong. On both sides of the fence. Even in France.
The only argument necessary is that it will open up a Pandora's Box once marriage is redefined. It won't be long before polygamists will be demanding their right to marry multiple partners.
And who would we be to say no to them after saying yes to gay couples? Wouldn't polygamists have the right to the kind of lifestyle they choose too?
Or incestuous relationships, say, between cousins or other distant or even close relatives?
There are some things you just don't mess around with.
Plural marriage is far more logical than homosexual marriage. The next step beyond homosexual marriage is legalization of pedophilia, the real objective of homosexual activists.

I'm afraid Carol lives in this fantasy world that is stuck in the 1950's a bit like that movie pleasantville. The harsh realities of life such as an expanding world population, the influence that has on the climate, gun control, financial rules and regs, plus a 1000 other political realities that cannot fit into her simplistic storybook outline of the world. She should ask how the people in Cyprus feel about losing 40% of their lifetime savings because some bankers got greedy. I'd say that self regulation worked real well, straight from the Wall st model from hell that did exactly the same thing.
The only reason that people in Cyprus lost money is because their government stole the money.

To sleep, carol, perchance to dream... dreaming not yet again of a big cliff to fall over, but of... an easy death. Death will be hard for the guy with the new car I suspect... all that wonderful, buttery-soft Corinthian leather... shit!

It is kind of funny that nobody cared what you had to say when you were alive but now that you're leaving you're supposed to come up with something profound as a closer.

Why do you hate homosexuals?

Is it because of the homosexual tendency towards pedophilia, or just for the hell of it?

A 22-year-old Commerce City, Colo. woman has been arrested and charged with providing a gun to the suspect in the killing of Colorado's Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements, The Denver Post reported late Wednesday.
The woman, Stevie Marie Vigil, is accused of buying a gun from a licensed firearms dealer earlier this month and then giving the gun to Evan Ebel, who is suspected of killing Clements, and who died after a high speed chase and shoot-out with law enforcement officers in Texas last week. Ebel, whose criminal record included convictions on robbery, menacing, and weapons charges, would have been barred from buying the gun legally himself.

Thank goodness wall street is thriving, too bad about the slobs out of work.
"More than 12 million Americans are jobless and 40% of these individuals have been out of work for more than six months. Overall the U.S. economy may be improving but many Americans still cannot find a job. This trend will only continue in the foreseeable future says James Altucher, managing director of Formula Capital, an asset management firm. The author and venture capitalist tells The Daily Ticker’s Aaron Task that the U.S. is moving toward an “employee-less society.”
Obama has made having employees a pain in the butt, to be avoided if at all possible. Do everything with independent contractors.

A new Surtax on Investment Income impacts individuals making more than $200,000 a year or couples with $250,000 or more. They must pay a new 3.8% levy on income from investments, possibly including profits from the sale of a home.

A new Medicare Tax adds to ObamaCare’s pain. These same high-earners must pay an additional .9% Medicare payroll tax on wages above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. This means the current 2.9% Medicare payroll tax will be increased to a total of 3.8%— a big hit especially for the self-employed.
