He's a multi-tasker. When talking about his family's fortune or his partners in Bain, anything to maximize profit is fair game. When talking about being the leader of the free-world, he embraces the concept of rebuilding the industrial base we sold offshore throughout the past two decades.

After the election is over, you won't hear another word about it...no matter who wins.

Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."


Think about it when you vote in November !

Get the asshole out of the White House.

I'm watching this ball game. If you take all the players on both teams, half of them are Mexicans....or "Venezuelans" as they like to be called now a days. It seems like they have an unfair advantage because they can play all year.

You could throw a blue tarp over Comerica Park and extend the season.

It's over. Not only that, the Hawaiian tsunami turned out to be a dud. Now, I'm pinning all my hope on this so-called "Super-Storm". I have 150 tv channels and the only one of them that isn't a "reality" show...or talking about this election that has been going on for the past 3 years.... is the Weather Channel. Thank God for the Weather Channel. I like the music.

Silver linings are everywhere...you don't even need to look far. Somewhere in that 150 lies your winter salvation via the Outdoors network. Spirit of the Wild shows Ted & Shemane Nugent killin' stuff but it's more than hunting, it's hunting with hot wimmins and automatic weapons. The politics are about 2nd Amendment and stocking the freezer so you hardly ever hear Ted do anything but praise the sacred protein.

THIS WAS WRITTEN IN 1968 42 years ago - Astonishing!





You probably don't remember the name Eric Hoffer.
He was a longshoreman who turned into a philosopher, wrote columns for newspapers and some books. He was a non-Jewish American social philosopher.
He was born in 1902 and died in 1983, after writing nine books and winning the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His first book, The True Believer, published in 1951, was widely recognized as a classic.

Eric Hoffer was one of the most influential American philosophers and free thinkers of the 20th Century. His books are still widely read and quoted today. Acclaimed for his thoughts on mass movements and fanaticism, Hoffer was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1983. Hopewell Publications awards the best in independent publishing across a wide range of categories, singling out the most thought provoking titles in books and short prose, on a yearly basis in honor of Eric Hoffer.
Here is one of his columns from 1968 -- 42 years ago! Some things never change!

~~~~~~~~~~

ISRAEL'S PECULIAR POSITION...by Eric Hoffer Los Angeles Times 26/5/1968.
The Jews are a peculiar people: things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews. Other nations drive out thousands, even millions of people and there is no refugee problem. Russia did it, Poland and Czechoslovakia did it.
Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchman.
Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese and no one says a word about refugees. But in the case of Israel , the displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees.
Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single one.
Arnold Toynbee calls the displacement of the Arabs an atrocity greater than any committed by the Nazis.
Other nations when victorious on the battlefield dictate peace terms.
But when Israel is victorious, it must sue for peace.
Everyone expects the Jews to be the only real Christians in this world.
Other nations, when they are defeated, survive and recover but should Israel be defeated it would be destroyed.
Had Nasser triumphed last June [1967], he would have wiped Israel off the map, and no one would have lifted a finger to save the Jews.
No commitment to the Jews by any government, including our own, is worth the paper it is written on.
There is a cry of outrage all over the world when people die in Vietnam or when two Blacks are executed in Rhodesia .
But, when Hitler slaughtered Jews no one demonstrated against him.
The Swedes, who were ready to break off diplomatic relations with America because of what we did in Vietnam , did not let out a peep when Hitler was slaughtering Jews.
They sent Hitler choice iron ore, and ball bearings, and serviced his troops in Norway .
The Jews are alone in the world.
If Israel survives, it will be solely because of Jewish efforts. And Jewish resources.
Yet at this moment, Israel is our only reliable and unconditional ally.
We can rely more on Israel than Israel can rely on us.
And one has only to imagine what would have happened last summer [1967] had the Arabs and their Russian backers won the war, to realize how vital the survival of Israel is to America and the West in general.
I have a premonition that will not leave me; as it goes with Israel so will it go with all of us.
Should Israel perish, the Holocaust will be upon us all.

Why were you watching Fox if you favor the President's reelection? How very Godfather II of you.

Since it's all about the money I suppose the waste will never stop. As long as politics is about making some people winners and some people losers, citizenship will always ride bitch. Why do you suppose it is that the four people on their respective tickets have paid lip service to reaching across the aisle and yet never really done it?

This isn't a sport...although you couldn't tell by looking at it.

In the new normal, wasteful spending, as a whole will have to be curbed....at one time, i had 66 dress shirts, 120 ties and 46 pairs of dress pants....16 sportcoats...27 pairs of shoes....See what i mean?
