Barney you are nothing more than an atheist, communist moron that likes to talk smack that he knows nothing about, then try to baffel us with bullshit. I voted neither R or D, as both are totaly corrupt. I voted Independant where I could then passed on the rest. So Barney take your commie crap and put it back up your commie a--. BBJ if you think answering to or having to deal with you is a worry; you are beyond stupid.

A better educated public would be a good start, but good luck with that as we have lost our commitment to it.

I would explain it to you but your so tired. Put your stressful thinking. Rest
Poor defiant all tired out and no one to tuck him in. Why not take walk and find what’s good in your home. Find your happiness just by spending a little time with your love.
Outside a flower grows. Downy delicately in fragrance , the radiance of life exposed. exhibited, displayed for the eye, nostrils, emotional senses stimulated. Take time to smell the flowers along the way on your adventures through life. Serenely soothing, gifts bestowed to all creatures, from our dearest Mother Nature.
Now sail out unto a crystal clear blue ocean. In search for all the answers. We all sing to your spirit. Like the dolphins that guide you and guide you through the darkness find your comforts in your adventures out unto your dreams.. Nighty Night.. Fly away, fly way…. Nighty, Night

Only Tex can figure this one out. Watch how he spins to say he is above it all. Like fish out of the water.
The issue is all about economics! Lets see how the parties measure up.
Pedro Santa-Clara
Nova School of Business and Economics; National Bureau of Economic Research
(NBER); Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR)
Rossen I. Valkanov
University of California, San Diego (UCSD)- Rady School of Management

Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov Concurred that the democrats fared better than the republicans by a wide margin. Democrats had consistent above average returns. Most Republicans had lower than average returns and greater volatility.
Santa Clara and Valkanov attribute the difference in returns to the stock markets being systematically and positively surprised to discover that democratic polices in a 80 year time frame of quantifiable data, are the best economic stewards for the nation. Differences are substantial.
Democrats had a respectable average return of 9.6% as when compared to republicans 0.58% average returns. If an employee’s 401[K] plan was fully invested in stocks at a value of $100,000, at the beginning of the employee’s 40 years of labor, apply this to both parties for returns.
Republicans Nest egg would have accumulated $224,375.
Democrates Nest Egg would have accumulated $ 3,912,210.
Now at $5,000, initial nest egg investment.
Republicans Nest Egg would have accumulated $126,027.
Democrats Nest Egg would have accumulated $1,985,526.

Which supports Debt To GDP figures. Last 4 years of Bush attributed 20.7% to debt to GDP. Obama of the 3 years has a Debt to GDP of 15.1%. A reduction to debt of 5.6% in spite of all the sabotaging efforts’ of the republicans.{ Hostage/Ransom} scenarios.
Republican’s present financial planning is similar to Herbert Hoover/ Bush…?

Edthirty one of intelligence. Comprehends education and why its so important. AND as for me I eternally question. I’ve seen it rain and fire in the sky as I wandered down my country road. A misty taste of Moon shine.. Thoughts scamper like shadows of ghost of what is this entity Man?
What a piece of work is a man.
How noble and reason
How infinite in faculties’
In form and movement
How expressed and admirable
In action how like an angel
In apprehension like God
The beauty of the world
In Para gram of the animals
And yet to me
What is this grotesque’ creature…. dust
Man delights not me.

Gringo does it not become tedious being up / down. Is the pain so dramatic. Remember how once Sunshine in your eyes would always make you high. Should I tell you tale to make you smile. Sunshine on your shoulders, sunshine in your eyes will almost always make you cry. Up down the life of a country boy. Get yourself a fiddle and put away that stash and get a jig a going. A lot of sad people out there. Your happiness lies within them. Get that fiddle a going and dance with them and a smile will cross by one and all.
