Yours is far worse, bucko. At least I hope it's attempted humor. I'd be saddened if you were trying to act legitimate in light of your many vague responses.
I tend to feel that a bored person with some programming knowledge, a strong ideology and an impressive sense of pride is capable of many things. Including a program that posts news stories and poll numbers with the few human excerpts being...well...just not too smart. This is a poster i've addressed many times in the past, in this thread and elsewhere, and received no response that a pre-made article or poll/survey didn't predominantly speak for.
Now how about the business aside? Educate me on basic business practice, successful business owner.
Don't let me ruin your Saturday though. Your bubble seems comfortable and I hope you have a great election day as you pick one of the two men that your corporate leaders want you to decide between.
You "tend to feel", do you "bucko"?

!LOL!

Business owners tend to act on knowledge rather than feelings.

So you'd describe your requirements for a programmer who can create a bot to run on Topix this way:
* a bored person
* some programming knowledge
* strong ideology
* impressive sense of pride

You are clueless in what is required to write the bot code, have it read a post, have it interpet a post, have it look up a response from a data base, and have it reply to a post.

A dishonest programmer with web and server expertise would suck your account empty.

LMAO....@ your "Brett LoGiurato" source. I wonder if he has enough experience to wipe his ass?

Brett LoGiurato is a political reporter for Business Insider. He graduated from Syracuse University in 2011 with degrees in newspaper and online journalism and political science.

Obama Still Has A Massive Lead In A New Ohio Poll
Consider:
Obama's favorability rating stands at 52 percent positive and 45 percent negative. Romney's remains underwater at 45-48.
Obama leads Romney on handling the economy, 48-46.
Obama leads Romney 50-41 on handling foreign policy.
Obama's approval rating sits at 50 percent, just at the "safe" level that typically precludes an incumbent's re-election.
And in another result from the poll that's good news for Obama, 72 percent of voters approve of how the president is handling the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
Obama's 6-point lead in Ohio is larger than most other polls show at this point. But the Real Politics Average puts the president up about 3 points with only three days before Election Day.

Red State Cashes IN!

Too many of my friends have gotten so focused on the outcome and are so convinced the country as they know it is over if the other side wins that they are joyless to be around right now. They are full of dread and worry and fear. They’ve lost their sense of humor. They cannot laugh at themselves, their side, or much of anything. They are mad at others, myself included, for not being as worked up as they are. The frenzy has become a purity test, not the conviction.

God is sovereign. And whether you are for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, set your sights on God, not November 6th, and be happy. In four years, we really will do this all over again whether right now you think so or not. There is no permanence except in Heaven.

That last bold is his bold, not mine. I think Erik needs to ask himself how these people who can't tell a fact from a pile of horse s%#t in the middle of the road, got worked up into this frenzy in the first place. Maybe Erik is going the way of some other moderate Republicans who realize they've lost their party to a bunch of Tea Party crazies who have been transformed into brainless zombies doing as they are commanded to do, and he wants to transform his party into a legitimate opposition party that will work for the betterment of our country rather than for a few Oligarchs. Nah! All the crap he's had on that site for the last several years says he's not at all sincere.

Guess What Tea Baggers--

Mitt isn't doing so well in Virginia:

The greenvilleonline.com reports that Mitt Romneys first two rallies in Virginia on Thursday were strikingly smaller than similar events just two weeks ago with large empty spaces and crowds totaling no more than 2,500 a stark contrast to the droves that attended rallies in places like Chesapeake and Leesburg following Romney's successful performance in the presidential debates. The final rally, at an amphitheater in Virginia Beach on Thursday evening, was significantly larger than the earlier events.

President Obamas campaign last week thursday Oct 25th in Richmond, VA had a crowd of 15,000.

Romneys campaign in Doswell, VA only 25 miles from Richmond, VA had no more than 2,500 people, even though he campaigned there with Gov Bob McDonnell, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, US Senate Candidate George Allen, VA Attorney General Ken Kucinnelli.

People are starting to smell the defeat. Paul Ryan shopping his next steps, campaign consultants bolting, and Kochs and Adelson turning off the money tap!

Have a blessed day!

maybe they're early voting....
maybe the circumstances were somewhat different for the last occasion?
In 2008 was it held days before the election and after he has spent days stumping all throughout the state?

I mean I don't have all the answers but Obama seems to be polling pretty well there anyway..

maybe the Stevie Wonder concert wasn't promoted well...

So there's one of about 13,000 ways to respond to this,,,
daylight savings time?
everyone was watching Fox News? i don't think so...but who knows

times change?
maybe some are not Stevie Wonder fans?

why are the polls showing Obama is still ahead?
oh i forgot all the pollsters are on Obama's payroll...sorry, I forgot about your sorry ass idiotic ideology whoops...

Where's the sense of business expertise you were going to attempt to impart in me? Or was that just more empty rhetoric on you part? Or are you going to predictably go the route of "You're not smart enough to grasp my intricate knowledge of business" that reigns over this thread?

Honestly, just save the energy. You'll go to any length to appear more knowledgeable than people you oppose. I could say George Washington was the nation's first president and you'd try to troll and argue otherwise.

Even if I say my bot comment was just a veiled insult directed at TaxNoMore, it doesn't matter. I know people with respectable computer skill who can easily handle the program and installing it. You're really reaching. So much so that you've ignored every other question I've extended in order to fight me over a comment regarding bot-for-profit.

I'd ask you the same ones but I don't anticipate answers. Just attempts to twist semantics and revisionism. That's been your calling card throughout your stay in this forum.

Obama camp - We are intentionally limiting crowd size at rallies:

The New York Times reported that the Obama campaign said that it is intentionally limiting crowd size at their events because of security and cost:

"Our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters and the smaller and medium-size events are the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage with the crowd."

Big rallies are expensive, especially given the logistical and security challenges for a president as opposed to a mere United States senator. And Obama campaign operatives, both at the Chicago headquarters and in swing states where Mr. Obama recently has stumped, say the campaign intentionally limits crowds by restricting tickets. The reason is to allow the president to better connect with supporters, aides said.
Since President Obama is ahead in Ohio he only has to make a 'Cameo' appearance and speak to smaller crowds.

<quoted text>What ideas? LOL
Sorry, it was not on CNN FOX or any other corporate controlled media sources you frequent but...

Foreign Policy - Given trillion-dollar deficits, America simply cannot afford to be engaged in foreign policy programs that are not clearly protecting U.S. interests. There is nation-building and rebuilding to be done right here at home.

Drug Policy Reform - By managing marijuana like alcohol and tobacco – regulating, taxing and enforcing its lawful use – America will be better off. The billions saved on marijuana interdiction, along with the billions captured as legal revenue, can be redirected against the individuals committing real crimes against society.

many more here:
http://www.garyjohnson2012.com/issues

so before you sound off 'What ideas?' and make yourself look like the idiot you are, maybe you should do a little research or pay attention to sources outside of CNN/CBS and FOX.

Attacked from both sides for not being on either bandwagon. Just as I pointed out in a different thread. Almost mind-boggling how predictable you guys are. Are you capable of rational thought or do you forego that in lieu of what you're fed by the blogs and news sources on both sides?
Like I stated before, men like Jefferson and Paine would be rolling their graves after watching the slack-jawed cheer leading happening on both sides.
The idiots are so entrenched in the left/right paradigm, they think they are voting for a king, not a president.

They forget there is a Congress, SCOTUS, and state government. The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and civil liberties are also outside of their basic scope of comprehension.

Hey Ginnie,

i agree I think VA is going Blue too..all the way too.
This is very good information to contemplate

15,000 Obama supporters
2,500 Romney supporters

at similar events only a few miles apart..too
hmmmm

what does that tell you?

Money cant buy you love and who knows that better than Romney and Ryan.

Adelson and Koch's trying to subvert our democracy...Isn't going to happen now even though our Supreme Court approves of this injustice.

anyway have a great evening Ginnie and don't forget to set your clock back tonight...

What a desperate 11th hour, hearing-the-footsteps lie:
"the Obama campaign said that it is intentionally limiting crowd size"

!LOL!

Meanwhile in Cleveland "Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch [Stevie] Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama."

Has Stevie Wonder played for such a tiny crowd? EVER???

The Obama campaign insults Stevie Wonder while the Obama 'supporters' insult Obama.

The crowd wasn't 'intentionally limited', it simply was unattended.
