No, it was your embarrassing speculation that anyone might be paid to post on this forum with a dozen readers.
And your blatant ignorance of how bots and business works.
...Wait. How did you manage to spin my comment into speculating that people are being paid to post here? That's asinine. No one would be foolish enough to do that. Not even the people most invested in the idea that the illusory one-party system is two and one or the other is actually upstanding and virtuous.

Is that the one you're referring to? Because even for you...wow. You're desperate for things to hit me with if you're making that stretch.

Also please enlighten me on what aspects of business I addressed and need corrected on. I'm sure you can find something at hand on a blog to copy here. Or at least another lunatic-quality lapse of reading comprehension.

Note: I'm bored today and willing to actually humor you for a while. Any 2 year old thread still so contentious is one I find a treasure trove of amusement.

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.

Not EVERYthing is paid for by the government.

It costs money to set-up a bot. SOMEone pays for that service. Both your bot-sense and business-sense is lacking.

Don't flatter yourself. Your stupidity isn't humorous.

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.

But enjoy whichever Demopublican candidate we end up with. Just be sure to look into who has received their bribes from whom, so at least you know which corporate interests you'll be hopping into bed with.

Obama Hit By Storm Backlash

Natural disasters usually follow the same political trajectory: First the incumbent experiences a bounce as he tours the impacted area, shows his concern, and pledges help to his beleaguered constituents. But then reality sets in and the shortages, delays, mishaps, deaths, and devastation becomes apparent and people turn against the incumbent.

George W. Bush had his Katrina.

And now Barack Obama has his Sandy.

Last week, Obama asserted a kind of ownership of the storm by touring New Jersey in the now infamous embrace of Republican stalwart Governor Chris Christie. Now that we are all appalled by the lack of food, gas, water, heat, and the basic essentials of life throughout the storm zone, Obama’s government doesn’t look so good anymore.

Why didn't FEMA stockpile food, water, and gasoline? We had a week’s notice to prepare for Sandy. There was no shortage of time. Did the government not realize that people needed to eat, drink, and drive?

All throughout America, we are asking these questions of our television sets as we watch the evolving story of human misery.

Meanwhile, Obama has resumed the campaign trail, pounding the opposition in the same relentless and partisan style which he used before the storm. When Obama said that voting was “the best revenge,” he threw away whatever presidentiality he displayed in touring storm damage earlier in the week.

As he entered the last week before the Congressional election of 1994, President Clinton returned to the U.S. after having presided over the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan. He called me on his return and asked where he should campaign? Which incumbent Democrats should he try to help get re-elected?

I told him he should not campaign for any of them.

“No, you don’t understand,” he explained. I just came back from the Middle East and my ratings are up ten points. Before, I would have hurt the candidates I campaigned for, but not now. Now I can help them.”

“Your ratings are up because your trip hyped your presidentiality. Now, if you start campaigning, you’ll look like a politician and your ratings will come down again. You’ll end up doing more harm than good to those you are trying to help.”

He disregarded the advice and lost both houses of Congress in the elections.

Now Obama is making the same mistake. By campaigning, particularly by using the same harsh partisan rhetoric which has characterized his campaign, Obama is dragging down his ratings and with it his chances of victory.

Particularly when we see the juxtaposition of the mounting disaster in New York and New Jersey and the President out on the campaign trail attacking his opponents, we realize that Obama is a candidate before he is president, more worried about his second term than the welfare of his constituents.

In yesterday’s polling numbers, I saw a rise in Obama’s ratings and warned that the race was far from over. Now, we see him throwing it all away and resuming his crash into a single term presidency.

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.

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.
