Congrats President Obama. He won fair and square. A resounding electoral college victory. The popular vote, while damn near 50/50, was still a decisive victory for Obama. No whining from me. This is a great country where our votes matter.
Sore winners are such losers!
Yet you offer conflicting commentary. On one hand Obama's reelection is the media's fault because Romney was treated unfairly, and OTOH, long live democracy.

While you're proving your point, I'm going to go spin some wrenches. I've got loads of maintenance to do.

Oh Winnie you're fibbing again! I never said Obama's re election was "the media's fault."!

What a big fibber! So silly.

Funny!

Woman Fired for Racist Facebook Post About President Obama.

Her post seemed to hoped for his assassination, this of course brought in the Secret Service.

It seems they really don't like that kind of postings, there of course are IDIOTS in or near Glendora, California who have also posted simular content filled postings.

Either against the President or another person living in the community who asks for change, like President B. Obama..

What loud-mouthed Republican tea party idiots will say;

Republican Grover Norquist had 279 members of Congress sign a personel pledge to him, promising no tax increases, especially for the rich.

Most Republicans think of me first, and American's future last!

The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.

Murphy declared victory early November 07, 2012 Wednesday morning and has held his lead ever since, even as thousands of absentee and provisional ballots were processed.

He issued a statement November 10, 2012 Saturday saying it was time to put the campaign behind.

He called his win a signal that voters were tired of the Allen West extremism represented.

The timing of Petraeus's resignation is very curious.

Reuters says Petraeus was scheduled to testify next week behind closed doors to the House and Senate intelligence committees about the Benghazi events, however he will now not give that testimony.

How is his being forced to resign going to stop him from testifying?

Cold Stone Creamery spent much of Thursday responding to angry tweets about the woman’s post.

“This employee is no longer w/the (sic) company & her disgraceful and completely unacceptable comments do not reflect our views,” one such tweet read.

Wishing someone harm and tossing out insults. You angry, Mikey?

That ol' POS as you call it runs like a top. I purchased it new off the showroom floor in 1979 (yep, it is a '78, clearance sale of previous year models). I made some minor mods on it over the years, exhaust, ignition, & intake. As I've found NOS parts I'm bringing it back to stock. It has been a reliable bike.

I'm not working on it today, servicing three other bikes & two quads, engine (and transmission on two of 'em) oil changes, brake fluid change, coolant change. Just in ordering a few expendables for a quad right now. Sadly, I have not busted a nuckle today. Don't despair, I'm not finished working.

Just routine stuff - that is why that ol' POS 750 has been around so long. You'll be disappointed to know it took 1st place in a bike show, Japanese category, two years ago. I missed out on the show this year as they called it due to torrential downpours before I got signed in. I did enjoy a nice ride in the downpour though, nothing like riding in a good hard rain.

I've got a few other POS ol' bikes that have taken trophies as well.'76 R75/6 BMW with sidecar (1st in European),'75 RD350 (2nd in Japanese), and a '77 RD400 (3rd in Japanese - I swept the category). The two Yamahas are for sale. Wanna buy one? Not for the mechanically challenged as they're two strokes with points & need regular maintenance to stay in tune.

Hey, at least you got the 750 right this time. Weren't you the one that called it a Kawi several pages back?

Even Diane Feinstein is suspicious.

She says Petraeus could still testify though.

If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, looks like a duck... It's a coverup!

How is it a coverup if he will still testify? you would, of course, still need to find something that they are covering up.
