If there was nothing to eat, we just
didn't eat. Cooking and enjoying a
meal together is living the day to
its fullest. Children that do not eat
are always sick and do not grow.
Coffee and toast.

Republicans successfully converted the 2010 elections into a referendum on President Obama, the economy, and liberal overreach. As a result, they won big. Now Democrats are hoping to turn the 2014 elections into a referendum on the GOP brand and the destructive excesses of Tea Party governance.
The GOP just might help Democrats succeed.
Polling released this week by the Washington Post and ABC News found the GOP’s unfavorability ratings among Americans at an all-time high of 63 percent.
But a closer look at the numbers reveals that this has been accompanied by a massive collapse in 2013 of the GOP brand among core constituencies important in midterm elections: Independents, women, and seniors. The Post polling team has produced a new chart demonstrating that in the last year — since just before the 2012 election – there’s been a truly astonishing spike in the GOP’s unfavorable ratings among these core groups:

Of course 'every American' won't feel the taxes because the vast majority of the newly covered don't pay federal income tax.

Heck, the kids should get something out of the tens of billions wasted yearly on Carter's Dept. of Ed.

No you won't__the rifle was a plastic airsoft toy that fired plastic BB's and the pistol in the teens waistband was a plastic toy. The AK toy is displayed in some reports alongside an actual steel and wood AK 47 assault rifle.

It's like a fkn joke as is are explanations offered in the San Jose Mercury.

Additionally it was 3:14 PM in the afternoon.

The 48 year old deputy was a damned fine marksman though.

You're a moron!!!

NOMINATED BEST JOKE OF THE YEAR..........

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States .
He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me come into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!"
The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican."
The man goes on and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America ."
The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese."
The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for wonderful America !
That person puts up his hand and says,
"I am from Middle East . I am not American."
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"
She says, "No, I am from Africa ."
Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"
The African lady checks her watch and says, "Probably at work."

Here, from you beloved left wing media.(I know this from hearing interviews with the family). It was a pellet gun.

Mediamatters: "On October 22, 13-year-old Andy Lopez was shot seven times by a sheriff's deputy in Santa Rosa, California. The deputy, identified by media as a "gun expert", apparently believed that the pellet gun Lopez carried was an AK-47 assault weapon."

Huffington post: "Sheriffs deputies in Santa Rosa, Calif. shot and killed a 13-year-old boy who was holding a pellet gun that resembled an AK-47 assault rifle on Tuesday. "

Pellet guns are not toys

"Neighbors mourn for Tollhouse boy killed by pellet gun"

"Second child killed in pellet gun accident"

Again, I'm not defending the cops in this situation. They fcked up. I'm just showing how little you really know.

Oh, and btw, Alex Sink cheated in a gubernatorial debate.

Most of the time you don't know sht about what you are talking about.

Across the street from my work, about 1 hundred folks get a free lunch from a Good Samaritan food truck. Food stamps not accepted. The amount of money we give people through SNAP is ridiculous, it needs to be cut.

They like snopes.com , right?

Tell It Like It Is was recorded by Aaron Neville in 1966 and later covered by a plethora of other artists. It's one of those songs made the writers a ton of money.

I saw the Neville's on April 3 1968 in a Louisiana nightclub on my way to the New Orleans airport while traveling home from Tigerland for a short leave before returning to Vietnam. The flight out of New Orleans put me in Memphis on April 4th and stranded me there as all outbound flights were cancelled.

Hearing that song transports me back to those few days in time.

The experience changed my life.

My God Flack.
This country did very well in the 50's. A man could hold a job & raise a family in his owned home. That job could be a clerk in a store or a delivery man for the local bakery or run a machine in the local machine shop. Not today. It takes at least two incomes or more in these types of jobs.
The ratio of CEO pay to average worker pay as gone through the roof.
The less & less employees are paid, the less & less they have to buy things. Buying things run the economy.
Handing money to the wealthy only to have a small portion run into the economy is stupid.
It had nothing to do with what I am doing. It is not hating the wealthy.
It is about everyone sharing in the growth of this nations wealth. This is what made us great & so prosperous after WWII through the 50.
You f*cking idiots think this is about hating the wealthy when you are too GD stupid to know the wealthy have been gaming the system.
Why has nearly all the growth on wealth of this country gone to the wealthy? It was not like that before.
Evidently you think it was hard work by the wealthy. Yep, hard work buying politicians & bending the tax law & regulations to their favor. Deregulation!! Deregulation!!
Your jealousy and envy of your hard working betters is most unbecoming. Now get off your fat posterior, get a job and stop the leeching.

And really, not the right whiner "control" crap.
Blame the Democrats for your failed education & Blame poor people.
That is about the crux of the right wing agenda.
I like wealthy people. I just don't believe in handing them money as you do.
Who was handed money? Besides your welfare mooching, ebt card using circle of family and friends. Name one.
