There Once Was a Girl From Nantucket

Seriously, there were many girls from Nantucket.

You have boulder, co in the wrong spot.

Hey, I am watching your 7 pm program, and you have boulder, Colorado in the wrong spot.

Arggghhh. Hey I live icolrorado springs, the wrong spot.

Obama's only talent is knowing what people want to hear and speeches don't fix jack!

Kansas shows he is in campaign mode. If he is re-elected it will be just one big illustration of how people do NOT change their basic character. Speeches don't do jack.

And where are the personnel changes within his administration that support his rhetoric?

Half-time Flushing Advisory

Half-time Flushing Advisory by leighmf, on the half-time choices of those watching this season's Super Bowl

Not super nachos, beer nor pie
compares with her in taste or thigh.
Perhaps this year no half-time flush
through every drain and main will rush.

Will you hold on to see Madonna,
Miami's horny old iguana,
choreograph her pelvic girdle,
kiss something weird, straddling a turtle?

Thom's changing view of the European economy

It is very interesting listening to Thom blast Germany and France for replacing the weak and ineffective governments of Greece and Italy with businessmen. Did Angela Merkel suddenly lose all of her intelligence? You loved her all last spring and went on and on for segment after segment on how stable and perfect the european economic system was. I need not to go into all the multiple giveaway programs exist in the countries that are now belly up. They are now bankrupt because of them. Thom, you can call the giveaways democracy, but the hard facts are very clear.

A serious question

J.M. Mike Oborn, Author

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law
that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all
sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. The 26th
amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months

JFK Tax reduction

John F Kennedy reduced the 91% tax rate to 76% because the wealthy were illegally moving their money to secret, off-shore banks to avoid taxes. When Kennedy reduced the tax rate the risk of legal action outweighted the new tax payments. As a result the government's tax income increased dramatically.

Approving the Keystone Pipeline to keep gas prices low is a stupid excuse.

What the hell do I care if gas prices go up so long as after 30 years my wages finally increased faster!!!!!!!

Social Security

Thom,

I have been a follower for years and believe you are the best to promulgate a solution to Social Security.

It is so simple. Remove the ceiling. Make the rich pay their share. Of course Republicans will fight it, but

get the issue out there. I wonder how many average voters are aware of it ?

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
