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

BBJ if you think answering to or having to deal with you is a worry; you are beyond stupid.
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.

Exclusive: Saudi National Once Considered ‘Person of Interest’ May Be Deported on ‘Security’ Grounds — And How It’s Supposed to Be Framed
Apr. 18, 2013 12:30am Jason Howerton

Editor’s note: Please see the Editors’ UPDATES &#8203;we will be placing in order of most-recent below. TheBlaze’s Jonathon M. Seidl contributed to this report.


Key points:

On Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Wednesday night, terror expert Steve Emerson cited sources saying Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was briefly named a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombings, is being deported on Tuesday.

Thursday morning, Glenn Beck revealed on radio that TheBlaze was informed by sources that the Saudi national’s visa had been revoked and he was, in fact, going to be deported on “security and related grounds.”
Among other things, sources told TheBlaze that the Saudi national had ties to a well-connected Saudi family and that his deportation was set to be framed as a “voluntary” departure to be with his family.
A file, called an “event,” was started on him three days ago.
While discussing the issue on radio, TheBlaze’s Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood revealed that the government is now considering not deporting Ali Alharbi.

&#8203;UPDATE VI &#8203;(12:50 pm ET):

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had a fiery exchange with Rep. Jeff Duncan during a House hearing Thursday morning over reports that Al Alharbi is being considered for deportation.

Napolitano refused to entertain a question regarding if it would be “negligence” to deport someone who just days ago was a person of interest.

“I’m not going to answer that question,” she shot back after being pressed by Duncan and denying any knowledge of such a plan.“That question is so full with misstatements and misapprehensions that it is not worthy of an answer.”

And she is Head of Homeland Security?

She and Hillary Clinton went to the same school together, "How to get ahead by kissing buts"
Maybe Obama will promote her to "But kissing Czar"

And Hillary Clinton will tell those people killed and maimed to "Suck it up,and move on" (Yeh until they find another 9/11 target)
I understand that the office of Janet Napolitano has been changed, the new name plate says:
"Second Libtard in command". She may get a new plate designating her as #1, as Hillary is no longer Secretary of State(Libtard state that is).

I guess that deporting the Saudi's will be a terrible sentence for the Boston Bomber!!!
And that will make our country safe?????

My Family and I are talking about moving to Texas.

Tex voted for republicans emulating BBJ. Two Birds of the same feather. Here is what they voted for;
America’s inequality;
“Rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”
Three decades of low wages, to the 90%, with a growth of 15%. Earnings increase to the 1% have been cruising at 150% increases as to the 0.1% are racing at 300% Greater acceleration of wealth accumulation has affected the wealth at the bottom.
Middle class bastion of secured wealth accumulation has been severely oppressed. Homes lost their values. Top 1% lost wealth but it was soon recovered. Middle class years later are just now experiencing a strangulated loss gain to their investments if not a total loss. Typical 1% held 225 times the wealth of the typical middle class household. Doubling the ratio experienced as they were in 1962 and 1983.
Prior to 2007 the 1% enjoyed accumulating 57% of the nations wealth. Producing an increase in capital income after 1979 some 7/8 while those in the 95% received less than 3% of the increment.
Consider for an example; Walton’s family of the Wal-Mart empire commands a wealth of 69.7 Billion. Compare this to the total wealth of the 30% of the entire population, of the impoverished within the USA.
“Good” middle class jobs have been eviscerated that required moderate skills, like autoworkers’ jobs, in ratio to the unskilled laborers. Where in at the top greater skill levels were required.
Polarization of the labor force. Collapse of good jobs has been in affect for the last 25 years. Wages have gone down, increasing disparity of inequality in favor of the 1%. Creating a downward spiral for the middle class laborer.
Presently as an example; Single earner of family of two children, in good health, manages to work 40 hours per week,{Presently Average working hours for Americans is at 34 hours} at a wage above minimum {$8.50/hr} Pays S.S. which reduces his earnings to $8.00. Yearly income is $16,640 for 2080 hr’s of labor.
Pays no income tax but his employer charges him $200 a month for health insurance, to cover entire family and employer picks up remaining $550 cost per month of the cost to health insurance. This results in a take home pay $14,240 a year. Luck on his side, finds an apartment for $700 month with all utilities included. Now this reduces yearly earnings to $5,840 to cover all family cost for the year. Add in a car with fuel, insurance and maintenance at $3,000 per year and what remains is $2840. Under $3.00 per individual per day. No entertainment and no buffer zone for accidents or lost of wages.
Along comes the “Great Recession” Safety nets cut! Miss rent due to loss wages and homelessness looms.
One Example of nets being cut and their affect; Many states cut child care. Average monthly child care for two children $1,433 per month to be subtracted from the $2,840 a month families income. Results in $1.30 per, person per day!
Ahh now the republican way... Hoop To Do...
