Here we go again with you making up shit and/or believing other peoples bullshit and then running with it as if it's a fact. How do you or I know that the business owner was telling the truth when he told Obama that his business is horrible? Where the fk is his proof? Obviously, the smuck business man is weathering the recovering economy, shit cannot be that bad.. right?
So the moral of the story here is that you're going apeshit mad because somebody's capitalizing off the bullshit you said and all the while, your bullshit has yet to even be proven.
It's really funny if you think about it.
You are the one getting your panties in a bunch. I posted a link as to what a 'pool' reporter posted during obama's visit. It is obvious you don't like someone speaking his mind in front of the POTUS. I would believe a small business owner before I would believe what obama tells me "is the truth". Do you think that just because businesses are still in business, they're all doing just fine? Is "just getting by" a good situation to continuously be in as a business? Sounds like you don't believe what a small business owner says about his own business, but you swallow, hook, line and sinker, what obama spews out every day as gospel? You'll believe what left wing "news" sources like huffpo, MSLSD, etc as true without question. After all, those are sources that are just telling you bullshit and then you run with it as fact. How do you know if chris mathews and rachael madcow are telling you the truth? How do you know if arriana fluffington is telling you the truth? Yet, you post crap from them as if it is fact.

Why don't you look up the business info and call the owner and get his viewpoint straight from the horse's mouth if you think "the private sector is doing just fine"? Angry and stupid is no way to go around in life.

Are you losing control of what you post? YOU posted a claim ranting about "after 15 years of the Bush tax cuts....". I simply asked you where you came up with 15 years of Bush tax cuts. I'm fully aware of the reduced tax rates. So, again, using your info above, where do you come up with "the 15 years of Bush tax cuts" when you clearly(and correctly) state that it started in 2001. Are you not good with math? 2001 through 2012 is only ELEVEN years, NOT FIFTEEN. Comprende, senior?
I must say... you really got me there. 11 instead of 15 years even though I provided you the exact date that Bush signed the Bush Tax cuts on 7 June 2001.

President Obama has earned a reputation as a tech enthusiast, with his White House-issued Blackberry and photos showing him using an iPad. For his part, Mitt Romney's team developed a smartphone app called "Mitt's VP" to announce Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate. Both candidates use Twitter and other social media, and both candidates' campaigns rely heavily on data mining to help find and convert voters.

Where do you think "others" products come from? Whether you shop at Walmart or Mom&PopMart, the major source of the products sold at both places are the same. I take more notice at labeling now and if I can buy something that's still made here, I'll pay extra for it. It's a real challenge, though.

That's an interesting combination of stupid and hypocrisy you've got goin' on there old man so let me ask you a simple question...
What if I don't want an oil pipeline drippin' nasty across my land?
You see Cricket, I'm both an American and a land owner and here in America we don't like the government telling us what we have to do with our own land even if they compensate us financially.
When the supreme court expanded the governments powers of eminent domain most conservatives saw it as a dangerous and unconstitutional expansion of government and it's power over the private property of American citizens.
Right up until some land owner said "NO" and then it's "take his land, give him some cash and tell him to shut the fk up."
Private rights taken away in favor of the communal will.
You're not a conservative Cricket, you're an ideolog and I can tell you this much, if some oil company wanted to cut down the old growth forest on the back of our farm just to run an oil pipeline they would have a fight on their hands, I don't care how much money they offer.
In short Cricket old friend, kiss my ass and stay off my land!
:)
I wonder how much "eminent domain" is necessary for the Keystone pipeline? How many American families & land owners have to be displaced as a result of the Keystone pipeline?

Senator Mitch McConnell said that the Keystone Pipeline will not cost the taxpayers a penny. So I guess the government is not compensating land owners for expropriating their land?
Its Just a Small Leak

Well, then why did you keep up your rant with the 15 year bullshit even though you knew it was bullshit? OR, are you really that bad with BASIC math and just thought what you were saying is true? Either way, it makes you look REALLY stooooooopid!!

You're not looking at this right. I assume you are posting to make a point - so posting a link will give your point the weight it needs to have an effect. We all read, we can go Googling after your every post - but we likely won't. It's for your sake as well as others, it gives you credibility, puts the judgment on the article instead of you.
Plus, it's a matter of courtesy on these threads.

She reminds me so much of Torchwood. The constant threats to my employer, the stalking allegations and it's funny becuase she comes here and maintains a dialogue with you and like clockwork begins to cry stalking when she's getting called out on her BS. Then she starts with crap like, "my brother is a police officer" bla bla bla drivel.

Have you seen the way she stalks that guy Juan from Pearland, TX???

I mean seriously, she likes to dish it but cannot take it.

A political career failure.
In 2000, George W. Bush lost the popular vote to Al Gore. Bush became president not only because the Supreme Court awarded him Florida but also because sparsely populated Western states, from the Dakotas through the Rockies and up to Alaska, boosted his Electoral College total.
