Well if you look at my screen name it shows NO location.

The fake one shows a faint address beneath the screen name.

All of the threads you mentioned being pulled last night were dem's and some of debil's. The 11 in a row you mentioned.

O, and I love how they try and sell the fake new yawk post by hitting the Spam, Racy, Disagree icons on my reply! ;)

Have A Good Day!

Still Dodging Reality on Taxes
Congressional Republicans seem to think they are being flexible on taxes simply because a few of them have grudgingly admitted that some new revenues can be part of the current fiscal negotiations. We’re unimpressed.
No credit is due to a party that has suddenly accepted the obvious when it has no choice, particularly after two years of irresponsibly reducing the deficit only from the spending side. True flexibility means acknowledging that tax rates for the rich have to go up, and then negotiating how much and which ones. But, so far, Republicans have been just as closed to that reality as they have been for years, ignoring both the election results and the plain arithmetic of deficit reduction.

yes I know but sometimes when they are really going I just glance at the name before skipping. Personally I don't get it. They are either twelve or mentally challenged. I like coming on here and bantering back and forth but I see no useful reason for what much of what they do. I'm sure there are threads where that kind of crap would be welcome. There are a few other sites I go to once in a while. They would be gone the first post. Wish this one was more like them. Have a good day to you too!

One more time you prove your stoopidity. If the house passed bills had no chance of passing in the senate, why did the senate not do their job and vote them down? The senate under Reids leadership did not allow a vote because he knew they would pass.

<quoted text> Well i can agree with much of that however We have a lot of those cars and trucks around here that vibrate every part of the car. Sounds like crap and with trained ears very painful. I live one block off Indian River Road and I can hear them going both ways. It's a six lane road. I played my music loud when young, still do, however, as you know, 4 watts doesn't come close to 1000 plus with the 50 lb magnet woofers. 126 db is about the limit. After that you get permanent damage right away with ear bleed over 135. It doesn't take long for that to get on your nerves, literally.
i can see your point, but as you know, i remix bass heavy music for a living. i also design and install full range competition car stereo systems that i can assure you don't sound like crap. so i may not be totally objective. but there are many who have gone to a box store and rigged the ride with crap. i must admit i don't miss living in Indy.

so yes, it is a valid point. not worth shooting someone over, but yeah, a real pain in the ears it can be.

Mitt Romney can take some solace in his devastating loss on Nov. 6: at least he won the voters who really count.

That’s the thesis anyway of top adviser Stuart Stevens, who penned an op-ed in the Washington Post on Wednesday arguing that by winning wealthier and whiter voters, Romney secured the moral victory over Obama.

“On Nov. 6, Mitt Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income,” Stevens wrote.“That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters. While John McCain lost white voters under 30 by 10 points, Romney won those voters by seven points, a 17-point shift.”

According to Stevens,“The Republican Party has problems, but as we go forward, let’s remember that any party that captures the majority of the middle class must be doing something right.” As a result,“Republican ideals — Mitt Romney — carried the day.”

The argument that poorer voters are inherently inferior seems to undercut the campaign’s central message over the last two years: that Romney’s top concern was providing jobs for the jobless. The unemployed Americans Romney highlighted in ads, speeches and photo-ops make under $50,000 a year almost by definition and campaign videos like the one below are jarring next to Stevens’ latest piece.

Stevens notably never mentioned jobs and unemployment in his op-ed, instead focusing on how Romney championed “the moral case for free enterprise and conservative economics.”

Unfortunately for Romney, poor and minority votes counted just the same as the allegedly superior votes Stevens favored. The result was an electoral college blowout for the president powered by strong turnout and margins among young voters, Latinos, African Americans, and women.

But Stevens had an explanation for that, too. Obama was “a charismatic African American president with a billion dollars, no primary and a media that often felt morally conflicted about being critical. How easy is that to replicate?”
