Orders are down, much of our manufacturing has moved to China and Mexico, and this is directly related to Bamy's policies on business. I was laid off for a bit in 09, and looks like I'll be laid off for a bit next year. And Obamacare hasn't even started yet! The outlook for 2013 seems bleak indeed!
Businesses were moving their HQ oversears under Reagan, Bush, Bush 2. At least Obama wants to go after them for the taxes they're avoiding paying.

The idea is to bring 3rd world wages here..."because of free market competition..." To accomplish that, Unions must be destroyed.

I love it that you're an anti-Vikings fan, especially today. Bears started out looking lame for the first few minute and quickly turned that around.

Man! That was a fun, fun game. Now the Packers need to lose. I think maybe I saw that Race was a Giants fan. I will be rooting for the Giants against the Pack.

After that mess on that Monday night game against SF, the Bears had to play excellent -- and they did. It's not so much that the back-up quarterback isn't good (he's not that good), it's that the Bears need the team leadership Cutler gives.

Happy dance! Bears win!

Well, we agree on the Bears. Bain Capital, like all bankers, are in it for what they can get away with. That's the game of investment bankers. To use football analogy -- if the regulators don't see it, and they don't get penalized, is it really against the law? I believe that's the thinking.

Yeah, my dad was teasing me about missing out on his stuffing so I told him to freeze and FedEx some. My mom just emailed me to tell me that my turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy will arrive tomorrow morning. She also suggested I pick up some cranberry sauce and green beans.

Tell your mother she has set an impossibly high bar for the rest of us with kids who aren't in town.

I seem to recall your spending not a small amount of money to ship something like a keg of rootbeer to your kid!

There is a reason my husband usually does the grocery shopping without me. I am an impulse buyer. I saw velveeta and had to have it. It wasn't on sale, but I didn't care. I had velveeta and hormel chili dip for lunch today. I feel kinda gross now, but it was So Good!
