That Holtz is a smart man.

I like that we get bragging rights every year. Either the Gators or the Dawgs are usually doing well. At my age, you gotta take joy where you can find it. Thank God for that "prepaid" college funds.

not sure what the final tally was,but for most of the year about 5 of the the top 10 or so teams were sec.that is pretty impressive,especially when you consider that there are 4 or 5 major conferences and 130 +or-, teams in all.

I think the Republican Party initially swept into power in the modern day in 1994 and all the pundits were saying they should be able to hold it for 50 years and Democrats were done etc but of course Republicans managed to screw up.
Now we are hearing the same about the Democrats and the Republicans are done. The tide will turn again I'm sure.
Fact is, we'd be alot better off if both parties disappeared. What a dream.
I read where Washington and Adams did not want political parties. The thought being a person would be more faithful/bound to the political party than to the Constitution/Nation. Jefferson and Hamilton took the oposite view. Unfortunately, Jefferson and Hamilton won.
Now we see who was right. The Nation has been shoveling the crap from both parties far too long.
+1 Excellent post!

Agree completely. I vote Republican because they are closest to my conservative views, but the Republican "establishment" makes me sick to my stomach. And hasn't Washington been proved sadly right. Those once elected are first and foremost committed to their reelection and retention of power, their constituency second (maybe third, fourth...). Term limits would solve SO many problems.
VERY WELL said. I concur. Term limits is such wishful thinking. That would mess up the SCAM that's going on in Washington.

Surely you're joking.
This from a Right Winger protecting us from the scourge of socialism, that threatens to overtake our entire country by next Tuesday !
Yea, wouldn't it be horrible to cut the War Department's budget.
Damn, we might have to bring our troops home and not give them the chance to die to protect Exxon-Mobil's and Halliburton's profits.
What a shame that would be - how who would force Iraq and Saudi Arabia to sign oil contracts with the chosen monopolies. Why we might even have to - Gasp !- conserve energy. Lord save us.
And as a good capitalist - surely you look forward to the death of the horrible Socialist Security. Those damn liberal Democraps invented that Socialist Security and the liberal Medicare, and keep fighting Romney, Cantor, McConnell, Gingrich, and the gang of Right thinkin 'Mericans who know we gotta stop those damn wiild eyed liberals.
Oh, brother. This has been argued ad nauseum on Topix and you just spew the same 'ole left wing crap. Look! WHY are you libs so mad? I have asked that over and over. Why? Everything is going just as you want it to. Obama is in power. You are looking forward to lower taxes and afordable healthcare. You are going to get exactly what you voted for. If congress doesn't grant what Obama wants, he has Executive Order as a backup so he can fulfill his promises. No worries. So! Why are you libs so mad?

How about some facts to support your ideology ?
Maybe explain why, if cutting taxes on the rich, and higher corporate profits, lead to less unemployment and higher incomes for the working man,
yet
every time we cut taxes for the rich, and corporate profits explode, unemployment increases and the working man's income drops ?
Or just insult anyone who points out the facts support the liberal/progressives.
Do you really want to know why I come on here and just joke and sling sarcasm? Those of us who have been posting on Topix for a long time have posted the same stuff over and over. I (and others) pretty much gave up posting facts, links, etc. a long time ago. It does absolutely NO GOOD. It's a complete waste of time. No one on here is going to change anyone elses mind. Now THAT has been proved. You are late to the dance in regard to the long time posters, so rock on, dude. Perhaps someone else who is also relatively new will jump in and take a stab at it, but it WILL be a waste of time. Liberals disgust me and the Republicans who are in Washington now disgust me, too. If you don't like what I post, either suck it up or skip it. Makes not one bit of diff to me.
Actually, I DID post a couple of links today about the European economy. And you know what? It was a complete waste of time. Surprise....

You will need many things, but the must have things are, in no particular order because you will need them all... Guns and ammo...

Head over to Wally World and try to buy some 22 ammo or some 9mm. Sorry but you're out of luck. Freeze dried food is a third item on the list, but CLEAN water to last some given period of time is a bigger issue as well. Regular food will soon spoil as there will be no refrigeration available with the power grid being down. You have the food part of it right but you negelected to mention that it needs
to be a food supply that will last some period of time, so it has to be freeze dried food. It may
taste like cardboard but it will keep you alive long after many others have starved to death, but
then if you can't protect your stash from the wolves outside the door you're toast anyway, so again it comes back to the guns and ammo. If you try to pay for anything with a green piece of paper with a picture of a dead President on it you'll be a laughing stock. Gold is probably too high now except for the upper class, so silver coin is your only hope, but it will go out of reach soon as well. Just for money, for what little good money will be, the only real money will be hard coin. Back to the guns and ammo, that you say call the police? You have the guns and the ammo, then YOU are the police. And you think that many people haven't already figured out all of the above, and more? Think again. Well I could go into much more detail and many scenarios, but the above should clue you in for starters. Even so, so many are clueless and live in denial. They go to the grocery store and just expect everything to always be there for them. Too funny...
if things do get as bad as you and some others predict...then precious metals seem to be a sound investment.true,you can not eat them,but they would be of more use than worthless dollars,euros,stock shares,etc.buy gold and silver!!!

That's exactly the point about silver coins. A 90% silver US coin[pre-1964] may be good for barter as it will still be considered good (real) money. Any extra ammo will be very good as something to trade with as well. But there are problems with that even now. Two box limit in effect most places and it sells out as soon as it comes in.

I agree with you 100% on the other points that you mention. TOPIX is a cesspool. It's as simple as that.

To what's coming so many are so clueless. They will never know what happened or why.
i have been collecting gold and silver coins for over a decade now.first as a hobby(mostly old and rare coins)but lately more seriously and mostly bullion.the only bad thing is that is kinda like betting against the u.s. dollar,but the way things look -that may not be a bad bet.

Nice try.

Why do you Right Wingers keep pretending we mad?

We have are just grateful Obama is a Right Wing president a little less incompetent and a little less of a complete corporate shill than Bush.

At least Obama gets our boys killed unnecessarily at a slower rate than Bush.

At least Obama, even though hr won't prosecute the War Criminals in charge from 2000 to 2008, says he won't torture his political enemies - Bush took pride in being a War Criminal.

Heck, were just thrilled Romney didn't have the chance to create another Great Depressions. Think how low wages could drop and how high profits could go then.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's the Right Wingers all upset that maybe some sanity might infiltrate into the government.

One can only hope.
