Very sad. Our only hope is to get rid of O'Bomber and get a businessman like Romney. I hope it is not too late.

anyone interested in perspective might find the books of these two very interesting.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generations_(book)

we have been here before (and even before obama was born)... though obviously the specific details are different every time around, and the people in the limelight too.

i don't personally think we need another boomer in the white house, nor that obama is to blame for being born when he was.

in fact history in general takes a lot of the PERSONAL stigma out of our current situation and places it in context..."for everything a season" etc etc etc

Indeed. See how the illuminati work, ag? The truth was right there in front of our collective nose, but we were all too brainwashed to see it.

No one with 2 braincells to call their own believes a word the hypocrite Warren Buffett has to say.

This is the colossal hypocrite who calls for higher taxes on the jobs creators but who wouldn't pay those taxes himself since he takes almost all his income in the form of dividends and capital gains...not ordinary income.

Further, Buffet is the very same hypocritical clown who still owes Uncle Sam about a BILLION dollars in back taxes all the way back to the early 2000's.

This is the guy heads up their a$ses leftists want real Americans to listen to? Not likely.

Sit down, shut your pie-hole and pay your taxes Buffett.

Why you think you're in a position to disparage Warren Buffett is beyond me. I think "delusion" is a good word here for your comments.

Anyone, including me, who doesn't owe a Billion dollars in back taxes and who doesn't make his/her money using illegal insider information from his demoscat pals in Congress is in exactly the right position to disparage the colossal hypocrite Warren Buffett for his stupidity and self serving comments.

Just like O'Bomber, when Buffett's history is examined, even casually, the myth surrounding Buffett evaporates into thin air.

It doesn't take an oracle to make money in the stock markets WHEN...your congressional demoscat pals are clueing you in as to the corporations whose bank accounts are going to be infused with tens of billions of dollars from the federal government.

And, it doesn't take an oracle to make money WHEN your Marxist pal in the White House..O'Bomber is throwing business your way by canceling the XL Pipeline to carry crude oil from Canada to refineries in Texas...AND you just happen to own a large block of shares in a railroad...with tanker cars to haul that same crude oil.

Of course, the O'Bomber butt suckers and Kool-Aid drinkers think this is just dandy. But, these same hypocrites would have been in full whine, screech and shriek mode if Bush had done any of the things O'Bomber does and does on a routine basis.

What nonsense. Like most, if not all, of your legalabout accusations, your comments amount to absolutely nothing where actual law is concerned. This is just another fantasy on your part. Why don't you ask Conservative Charlie Munger?

Actually, I've already proved what I've said about both O'Bomber and Buffett.

If you could find the on switch to your brain acoustic, you'd know that. Alas...

Yes I did. Get out the WD-40, soak you long unused brain for a day or 2 and try to get it started.

The same delusion that brings all of your other nonsense is bringing this. I'd accuse you of lying, but you believe lying is only lying if it's intentional. Clearly, you don't even know when you're not telling the truth.

Jwhop gives you all the figures that I don't have the patience to get. Yet, you blow him off. You have one of the most closed minds I have ever seen. That strikes me as strange since you seem open minded when you do Astrology

I don't blow him off. I answer him, and show him where he's wrong...like a good geek to a meathead. It's not a matter of being close-minded. It's a matter of having more common sense. It's frustrating because this particular meathead thinks he has some good information, but it's not actually good information. If you weren't so close-minded yourself, you'd see that I dissect each of his bogus arguments. And if I can direct your attention, notice how often he doesn't respond to my good points. Everything that's inconvenient to the pursuit of his political philosophy is ACTUALLY disregarded (unlike what I do).

as to buffet, that "owed" tax bill is in dispute. never heard of the IRS getting it wrong? happens all the time.

and yes, homeless people, who have lost their houses and been bankrupted by illness are also part of the picture jwhop never mentions. these were not obama's poor but bush's, if anyone's.

apparently folks here are fine and dandy with workers being laid off with nothing. i continue to point out that there is a plentiful black market and plenty of people who have started working for themselves, so no longer apply for unemployment etc.

and poverty is always at its "highest level since..." when a campaign is on!
