    @ Mark
    Should be an interesting election. Walker has a lot of “Big Business” money(which is ironic when he complains how the Dems will get alot of cash from out of state)

    the difference is the Walker money coming from out of state was not soliceted by Walker. They just startred sending it to make sure he has the resourses to win. the unions and the Dems on the other hand went out looking for the funds. The unions just started taking it from their membership all over the country even if the membership does not support the recall. That is the problem with the unions. I worked with unions (from the management side) for many many years and have a lot of friends in unions. i can tell you that many of them do not want their union money going to Dems as they are staunch Republicans but they have no voice.

    By the way Mark, GOOOOOOD MORNING!!!!

    @ Coffee,

    I have 5K burning a hole in my pocket. Already have a Roth IRA, and investments in NJ utilities via Mellon Bank (as you know both are stagnant or going down). I like to spread $ around. Where should I put this 5K, do you like precious metals? FYI, I do not need this money for another 25+ years, would not pull out early (so-to-speak).

    Good morning! Like I posted yesterday, my finacial guys told me when I asked where to put 20k, “Do you have an old cigar box?” :lol:
    They did mention gold but i want a little more quick access. For long term metals could be a good start. If it starts tanking you can sell it and move it. Or if you would like I would be more than happy to take your 5k, go and meet with Coffee Steve and Navydude and invest it in precious metals in the sape of a floor to ceiling pole. :shock: :twisted:

    Give me a break he is going all over the country for fundraisers. Walker is nothing more then a corporate schill whose in the back pocket of big business.

    As for your friends while the Dems don’t do nearly enough for the Unions as the Union puts into them, supporting the Republicans is a deathwise. They are the party of Theodore Roosevelt(my personal fav pres since he unlike most politicans today had the balls to tell Big Business where they can go) who was a big pro-union Republican guy no more. I am a firm belief that a strong union is the best thing for a strong middle class whether one is in a union or not since they are the ones who spearhead workers rights and wage. For the past 30 years the Republicans have done a good job of dismantling the union little by little and supporting them is only supporting a person in the union’s downfall. While the Union gets weaker, Big Business profits get higher and higher.

    Here is a graph of Middle Classes share of revenue compared to Union Membership from 67 to 09

    This is just wrong!! I remember years ago you could send a request to the white house and get a letter sent to a child or a parent signed by the president and it was free. It was a stamped signature but it was free. It took a long time to get but it was free.

    Obama Now Raffling Off “Shout-Outs” For Campaign Donations…

    How very presidential of him.

    Whether or not your mom’s on Twitter, here’s something guaranteed to make her smile on Sunday: getting a personal shout-out from President Obama.

    From now until Thursday at midnight, you have a chance to win that for your mom or a special mother in your life — just get five or more donations to your grassroots fundraising page to automatically put yourself in the running. (If you don’t have a page, you can set one up here.)

    That’s right: If your name is drawn, the President will send your mom a special Mother’s Day tweet from @BarackObama. With more than 15 million people following him on Twitter, she’ll be honored in front of a pretty wide audience.

    Even if your mom doesn’t have an account, she’ll still be getting a personal note from the President of the United States, thanking her for doing all the hard work that goes into being a mother.

    I know my mom, Anne, would be thrilled — and it might even inspire her to give the whole Twitter thing a try.

    So give it a shot. Tell everyone you know to pitch in and help get your name in the hat.

    All you need are five donations by Thursday at midnight to be automatically entered, and it could be your mom who has an extra-special Mother’s Day this year.

    @ Ratboy

    I used to believe in keeping money tucked away in my mattress, until my house burned down.

    Gold is too high for me right now. Had I invested in gold prior to ’08, I would be high on the hog right about now. I don’t wanna buy high. Maybe silver is the next “in” thing.

    I still am not clear on the “rights” issue in this case. Where a gay person can’t marry a person of the same sex, a straight person can’t either. It sounds like we have equal rights already.

    @Apple Stinx

    “I still am not clear on the “rights” issue in this case. Where a gay person can’t marry a person of the same sex, a straight person can’t either. It sounds like we have equal rights already.”

    My point is that it is not a Right to marry someone. It is a choice. If it was a right then the person who you may choose has no right because he or she had the right to marry you.

    Who you may or may not marry is a choice by both parties. This is not a right.

    …………………………….lol?

  • usnretirex2

    One more thing on laws that have been past to prevent a marriage. State already do this, brothers / sisters, Parents / children, and others. Precedents have already been laid, and the individual states have made these laws within their states.

  • suikostinger

    @USN

    Well, it’s not a choice either it seems. Because gay people in NC seem not to have a choice to marry the one they love…..

  • usnretirex2

    @suikostinger

    Choice is in the concept. They have the choice to try and change it or they have the choice to move to another state, or the have the Right to live as they are doing now within the laws of that state.

    usnretirex2 wrote: “Who you may or may not marry is a choice by both parties.”

    That choice is not without restrictions. People often say “you should be able to marry the person you love, period.” What if one or both parties is at the moment legally married to someone else? In some places, the person you choose to marry cannot be a first cousin, for instance, or a sibling. There are rules, some written, some not. If same sex marriage can stand on its own merits, whatever they are, I could consider supporting it. As a rights issue, not so much.

    well lets just knock down all the barriers. If you love 5 people, marry them all, If 2 guys love the same woman, she gets to marry them both. If a mom fall in love with her son, schedule the ceremony.

    Stocks Tumble Amid EU Fears; Vix Soars 10%

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average was sharply lower, on track to logging its sixth-straight decline, led by Caterpillar [CAT 94.76 -1.73 (-1.79%) ] and Alcoa [AA 9.12 -0.09 (-0.98%) ]. The blue-chp index has erased nearly 3.5 percent in the last six sessions.

    The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq also tumbled. The CBOE Volatility Index, widely considered the best gauge of fear in the market, surged to trade above 20.

    All 10 S&P sectors opened in negative territory, led by materials and industrials.

    For the record, we is ‘we, the people’, not ‘we, gays’.

  • suikostinger

    But when the main reason to not let gays get married is to protect the sanctity of marriage, yet let people get married, then divorce literally 10 hours later is just hilariously ignorant. “Gays will destroy the sanctity of marriage!!! But don’t worry, divorce rate is at 41%!!!”

  • suikostinger

    @Applestinx

    LOL @you. So now gays aren’t people? Now I see why I strayed away from the right wingers…..
