How did we ever get to the point that we allow voting for up to a month before the actual voting day? Why have a voting day? I say the time has come to stop this fraud…because we all know that is exactly what it is. You have heard..”Vote Early. Vote Often.” Shall we all stop playing stupid..It is time for us to demand “our rights” to fair and honest elections again.
What say you?

With polls showing Colorado and its nine electoral votes a toss-up between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a former Democratic chairman made headlines last week when he told the Associated Press that the Centennial State “is the worst [swing] state” for the Democratic president.
Floyd Ciruli, a former chairman of the state Democratic Party and independent pollster said that the president, “[S]hould be doing better and he isn’t. “It’s the worst [swing] state of the bunch for him; isn’t that amazing? It’s the place we thought he could use as a model.”
Ciruli’s withering assessment comes two years after Colorado defied the national Republican trend by electing Democrats John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet as governor and U.S. senator respectively
Good news about non news…Really, read this article carefully. They spend the first half telling you how good things are, based on how bad things actually were. Then tell you to wait til Thursday to find out if the actual “good” numbers based on the actual past bad numbered, hold up! .
from the Federal budget…we are in far more trouble then even the worse case deficit hawks are saying….let sequester happen! Of course I am no intellectual…but 66 years gives me a little bit of common sense.. 🙂
The Hill reports:
Economists appear to be in broad agreement that the possibility of ending the Bush-era tax levels next year would have about twice the impact on economic growth as the automatic cuts to government spending under the sequester.
An informal survey of economists shows that they see increased marginal income tax rates as causing up to 40 percent of the slowdown in economic growth if the United States were to “jump off” the so-called fiscal cliff. In contrast, they attribute about 20 percent of the slowdown to reductions in government spending.
This assessment mostly reflects the amount of money the higher taxes would take out of the economy compared to the lower spending. Returning marginal income tax rates to where they were in the Clinton administration would take a bit more than $200 billion out of the private sector, while the sequester would require a cut of about $100 billion in 2013 government spending.

For the record, there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase “shuck and jive” – a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head. In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President
Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama’s in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.
I’ve been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup’ik Eskimo, I’m not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it’s directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews’ use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I’ll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and “when hell freezes over,” as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.
The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: “May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it.”

Let’s go back to testing those who want to enter our country. Why do we tolerate these diseases being brought in. We check everything else for safety, air, water, medicines and foods, to name a few, but we do not demand safety from walking time bombs?
are being carried out by people who are not native citizens…but immigrants either legal or illegal. What is it these people are lacking? Now I am not saying all, but it seems that the most heinous are somehow connected to immigrants… Our country use to have a soul…but we have lost it…Is this what our leaders call the “strength of diversity”. If they want diversity, they are more than welcome to continue with their global travel and enjoy their sick disgusting pleasures, whatever they may be….Just do NOT bring them here here…to diversify us!
