I posted this in the chat room several months ago and it got quite the reactions.
Here is a card game released in 1995. Don't let Rick Perry see this.
Fewer cops, more potholes: How debt deal could hit states hardest: Patrick Wall-Christian Science Monitor Aug 2, 2011
The debt-and-deficit bill signed into law on Tuesday forestalled a dangerous federal government default. But it will also slash aid to states already reeling from the recession, almost certainly forcing them to curtail services and raise revenues to pay for programs once bankrolled by Congress.
Our "conservstive" friends seem to need one liners to understand any thing.
"Freedom isn't free" is one I see all the time.
What everyone needs to see is....FREE TRADE ISN'T FREE , BUT WOULD THEY NOTICE?
Just read McCartin's writing in the NYT [8/3/2011edition] editorial about the PATCO strike in 1981...I was there as an active strike participant and a few facts were deleted, incorrect or overlooked...all in defense of Ronald Reagan...just as the coprorate media is STILL trending to accomplish-part of the coordinated project designed to "positively revise" Reagan's rather nasty history I'd guess.
I am just astounded at your continuous support for Obama, in light of the non-stop daily evidence of his fealty and service to the enemies of the country. A good example of this trend is your mantra of "circular firing squad": Somehow we mustn't "primary" Obama, or even speak against him, because doing so just attacks "one of our own".
All Obama had to do is stipulate that the Trillions$$$ in secret Federal Reserve loans (at 0% or near 0% interest rates) passed out to the Financial Industry UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION by his appointee Helicopter Ben Bernanke could ONLY go to Local Governments, and/

I find myself wondering if the electorate will tire of the Tea party and trounce the bastards in 2012.
Anyone out there share my sentiments? This is more of a simple question - rather than a blog post.
I really have to shout something from the rooftops. Way too many people have bought into the re-definition of what "middle class" is. Simply put, true "middle class" is historically defined as a one-income family being able to buy a home, a car and support a family. Surprised? You shouldn't be. This was the definition of the vast majority of households here in the U.S. for many years. If you are not old enough to remember, just watch some of the popular TV shows from the 50's and 60's and even the early 70's.
I call it nonsense, the GOP trying to keep Obama from appointing Mr. Cordray during the time they're out of town, but of course, there apparently is a way they can do this, but is there in fact a way which is "written in stone," you might say?. I just cannot imagine that an on-vacation GOP can have control over the president in this manner. There must be a way that Obama can appoint Mr.
