Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

It wasn't a choice. Trust me. My job required a lot of mental focus and accuracy. Which would have been fine had I not been switched to specialties even more demanding four years ago. After 14 years of transcribing and, at my age, my brain began to rebel.
Nothing I could do about it or I would have. Being a perfectionist has its price - stress and getting burned out.
Sorry to disappoint but I already know the feeling.
if you are physically and mentally unable to work full-time at the relatively young age of 62, then perhaps you are correct to enjoy your few remaining years as soon as possible...

my point is simply that those who retire early often grossly underestimate the savings that they need and end up in poverty in a few years, begging for government assistance...

So what was your stupid point again?
The choice of Carolyn Kennedy as the first female U.S. envoy to Japan was a brilliant appointment. The people of Japan love her and her arrival in Japan was treated as a royal event....with thousands lining the streets of Tokyo to just catch a glimpse of her.

As someone who graduated in the top ten percent of her class at Columbia Law School Carolyn is certainly far more qualified to serve as an Ambassador than Bush's choice of high school graduate Shirley Temple as a U.S. Ambassador. Now, that was inept.

As strong as my beliefs are about abortion, they are just as strong about forgiveness as women often struggle emotionally after an abortion.
Something I should have said every time the topic came up.
forgiveness by whom?

Don't feel too guilty babe, plenty of others here doing the same.
More exciting than solitaire I suppose.
Had been working part-time for a few years before retiring. So still had some time left in the day to keep you up to snuff, clean house and do laundry all at the same time.

So you gonna shoot them after they knock you out?? LOL

Or you just gonna shoot them just in case??

You'll have a nice time in prison Nobraina, being gang raped by their peeps.

Funny how you old white Teabag chickenasses react to every urban rumor;

----------

""Police Unsure if Random Attacks Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth
‘Knockout Game’ a Spreading Menace or a Myth""

"Fear swept through Borough Park, Brooklyn, as soon as the news got out: A young man was randomly assaulted by strangers early Friday morning, and the attack was possibly part of the so-called Knockout Game.

Four men were arrested, but on Friday night only one was charged and the others were released.

The attack added to a growing log of reports of such crimes in the Northeast and beyond. Young assailants were randomly picking unlucky targets and trying to knock them out with just one punch.

Yet police officials in several cities where such attacks have been reported said that the “game” amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.

And in New York City, police officials are struggling to determine whether they should advise the public to take precautions against the Knockout Game — or whether in fact it existed."

Yet another example of old, scared Teabag muthafuckas making up urban legends to project their insane fear of blacks.

It draws on a number of approaches, including ecological economics, solidarity economy, degrowth, systems thinking and Buddhist economics.

"Degrowth?" - Degrowth is a political, economic, and social movement based on ecological economics and anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist ideas.

"Solidarity economics?" - "...a set of strategies and a struggle aimed at the abolition of capitalism..."

She admits to being mentally unfit to do medical transcribing, which is basically copying crap, yet presents herself as an expert on the economy, foreign affairs, healthcare, abortion, etc.

She can't seem to admit that her brain is old and moldy, likely from years of personal self abuse, smoking and eating all the wrong foods.

She's the perfect prototype of the Teabags here; addlebrained.

I'm happy she's on your loser side.

They are changing gears and going in reverse - not because they know the Tea Party and Ted Cruz was right (and they would never admit that anyway) but because the harsh reality of Obamacare has set in - something that eluded them until now - and it is affecting and threatening their positions of power.
Franken is another liberal who thinks himself and his party are the only considerations in the whole scheme of things.
They know what's best, after all, and must remain in power to enforce their will on the rest of us at all costs.
lol! It's great that you center your thoughts on your politics and not the people.

the real disgrace is when wealthy dilletantes like Caroline (not Carolyn) Kennedy take up space in law schools when they never have any intention of working as attorneys for a single day of their indolent lives...

It's been affecting everyone (the country) since 2010 when the Democrats pulled its sleazy moves to pass Obamacare.
Employers cut back on hiring, people began spending less, people have had their hours cut and good paying jobs have turned into Obama/Democrat low paying jobs.
Only a few million people have been screwed so far but next year it will be tens of millions, which is why Obama is (again) unilaterally changing the implementation of the law to delay things until after the mid-term election, idiot.
Funny how passing the bushie boy tax cuts again was supposed to create jobs according to cons...

... and then all they did was complain more!
