The funny thing is that they get paid better, have more benefits and a better retirement than you and I. I'm laughing...on the inside.

Default can't keep up with the lies

Can't keep up with the lies. So blatant, and yet ignored by the MSM, unless the new media makes the issue impossible to ignore.

After four years, whether you think this is a sinister plot or if you think Chauncey the gardener is in the White House, the results are the same.

Here's the link to take the test.

See which presidential candidate you side with

I answered most of the questions by using the "more choices" option.

Not sure if this has been posted here, but I found this very interesting: 2012 Presidential Race | OpenSecrets

Check the top individual donors, as well as the sector totals.

It really shows you who BOTH of these guys are working for. And it isn't you.

Default Romney moves

My parents live in Park City, so I thought this was interesting. What's also interesting is that it didn't come from political pundits.

That viewpoint coming from a 24/7 media environment is bombarding me with all kinds of content and exposing me to all kinds of arguments and information that has become a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. Not only is this putting pressure on me; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy.

Let's face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction.

What's sad is, no one is going to understand how awesome/epic/satiric my post above was until the google key phrases out of it.

Actually, it is even worse than you think.

You will probably hate this, but you sound a lot like Jon Stewart.

he's funny. just batting for the wrong team. I'd prefer sounding more like Colbert, as he's funnier and not a bitter angry old man; he keeps it lighthearted and silly. and least not what's-his-face on HBO.

I would take Miller, but I don't use big words.

Deepest reduction in job creation in a recession since 1970 by a large margin.

Longest timeframe before a recovery back to the same level of job creation by a large margin, especially since we are not even close to being back to "break even" yet.



I am not sure exactly how each of these is defined. For example, I don't know what "information" means as a job sector and can't be bothered to go to bls.gov right now to find out. If it's newspapers, that may make sense?

I was surprised to see the government sector massively dwarf the construction sector and to see the manufacturing sector doing as well as it has, relatively speaking.

Yes, we're leading the way in service work, temp agency staffing and of course we've never had more food stamp recipients.

It's all in the way you gauge success...

Saw 2016 last night. It is going to be ironic if an Indian who lived the American Dream is the one who helps defeat Obama by making a movie.
