A newly found letter penned by Einstein just went on auction. I sold for $3 million.

In it, Einstein said...

Quote

The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. These subtilised interpretations are highly manifold according to their nature and have almost nothing to do with the original text.

but barefoot will keep it going because it suits his agenda; which is to disagree with everyone and to be as obnoxious as possible at the same time.

Better for trade.

As the US is such a massive market, trade improving helps you and me.

What explosion is coming? There came one in 2008 and somehow you guys pulled through. Yes, we are still in stormy waters, but we can actually look forward to the end of the effects of the recession.

Howdy, DF!! Passably well, thank you and hope you are the same!
"Risky" is a relative term. It's not risky at all if you can be certain of a public tax funded "safety net". Assessing risks and accepting the responsibility and consequences of poor choices lends moderation, conservatism and due consideration to a broad spectrum of behaviors ... social, economic and personal. So yeah ... it's "fair" if that "stroke of misfortune" is the result of a poorly calculated risk.
Okay.

Now, let's assume it was not a risky investment.

Imagine me a blue collar worker, straight out of school and get laid off after a year.

Is it fair that that person then has to live a life of poverty?

<quoted text>As offensive goes, public head is higher on the list than public booger picking. I'd rather not be witness to either.
The getting head in a public area is much more rewarding, I should hope.

Easy. Mitt's "Plan" is to continue Bush/Obama policies under a different brand name.
