It's ELECTION TIME!
Ok, we may have other things to do now rather than argue about politics, but surely, with just days to go, every one of you has an opinion.
Take a few minutes and share it, and let the rest of us know you're still out there.
Found anything interesting in your travels around the internets? It's election year and there's bound to be stuff that is "Hey, read this!" worthy. So share! This is an open thread.
Will put it back soon. Need to restore from backup.
I am not sure whether all polls should be taken at face value. I've been quite suspicious ever since I saw the ridiculous PPP national poll -
Romney 23, Santorum 38, Gingrich 17, Paul 13 - from 2/11. It was not even close to the 2 other major national polls. Fox News from 2/10 has
Romney 33, Santorum 23, Gingrich 22, Paul 15 , while Gallup Tracking has been in the field every day and on 2/12 is showing
Romney 34, Santorum 27, Gingrich 16, Paul 8 .
Hello all! Hope everyone is well!
As with all things, to find the truth just follow the money:
Here are the highlights:
WikiLeaks cables reveal U.S. financing for groups seeking to overthrow Syria's al-Assad
At least $6 million has gone for anti-government programs inside Syria, according to cables
I never would have believed it but Donald Trump is actually sounding coherent in his criticism of Obama. Even on the birther angle. He;'s not out in left field folks, he's actually making some sense. I may have to give him a second look ... :)
Well Obama is still stonewalling on producing his real birth certificate ... the original one not the artificially created one that has already been released. This is totally sily on Obama's part. If he actually has a "real" birth certificate why does he persist in not producing it?
Failing to do so only makes him look like he has something to hide. Especially when the estimates of how much he has spent to keep it hidden are about $2 Million. What's the big deal if it is on the up and up?
This is just totally hilarious. Ever since taking office Obama, Mr. Hope and Change, has ended up vindicating everything ... and I mean literally EVERYTHING that George W. Bush did in the war on terror. Here is just the latest example:

So are you an idealist, or a realist?
What else is there to say on the topic? :)
If you disagree, state your case below.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
With so much going on, I wish we were still chattering. The oil spill, McChrystal's interview and Afghanistan, the upholding of gun rights in Chicago, the G20 deciding on austerity over further stimulus to Krugman's dismay, Russian deep-cover spies!----there is still a lot to talk about.
April 15th. The date we all love as it represents our financial contributions to our society ;-)
I've contacted Ender about the latest spam. I've suggested he go ahead and implement the "verification" feature that would mean an extra step for regular posters, but would foil bot spam.
I'll be out of town for the next several days, and most likely entirely unplugged, so please ignore the spam.
