    @ Jeff

    Not that I care whether or not you believe my posts, I do appreciate some of your words above, but will not lose any sleep over your opinion either way, FYI.

    Hillary Clinton once exaggerated bullets flying over her head,,do I care or think she’s any less qualified to do her job,,nope…I think media matters is affecting your abilities of deduction..

    In all the debt to GDP talk,,got me thinking where California stood,,was surprised to find Cali’s ratio was better than Texas,,less the federal debt…When you look at the debt to the enormous size of Cali’s economy,,there’s little chance your state is the next Greece…

    MSNBC will have to revamp their morning show and get rid of their office conservative. It clashes with the decor. Albeit only in a moderate way.

    worked to renew my health insurance today and my agent said that the whole industry has stopped dead proceeding with implementing the rest of Obamacare til the Supreme Court rules later this month…we are almost there…next stop…religious freedom for Catholics…

  • Tennable

    I would think the Obama campaign would want the Supreme Court to rule Obamacare Unconstitutional. My thought is that if they rule in favor of it, more people (of the 51% that oppose Obamacare) will have reason to vote for Romney in November so that he can repeal the health plan.

    For the SC to rule against it, the majority is happy, and the smaller fraction of Obama supporters (who do not care for Obamacare) can vote comfortably for Obama.

    CNN makes a move to help their weekend ratings. :???:

    Gabriel – I don’t watch The Ultimate Fighter. But I did see that last PPV fight and Bigfoot Silva was bleeding like a stuck pig in the Octagon dude. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anyone bleed like that from a cut. This photo was taken when Cain had pummeled him away from the lake of blood he left on the mat.

    ——————————————-

    I didn’t watch The Ultimate Fighter on a regular basis. Watched it to see how my guy was doing. I read Cain gets a rematch with the dude who beat him. I think its the guy who just KO’d Mir. Lesnar was at the PPV event & folks are speculating he wants to come back. He better stick with the WWE. I guess my boy Carwin is hurt or retired. I never hear anything about him.

  • Hillbilly

    Faith3 – They don’t call it capital controls for nothing;) The subject is quite complex but I will focus on one point tonight.

    ————————————-

    That’s what i figured. I’ll leave the complex economy issues to you & that girlfriend stealing PaulG. ;)

    Why not just draw straws;0

    They would fight over where to get the straws.

    I don’t know if d.d. was off topic as much as you both were talking about different events. I’m not getting in the middle (all tho that could be fun ;) ) of you two. I might encourage another cat fight between the two of you. There’s some new posters who missed the last one. For those who missed it…lots of nudity & hair pulling. :grin:

    Unemployment will go down again. Well the way its counted it will go down. :???:

    Hundreds of thousands of out-of-work Americans are receiving their final unemployment checks sooner than they expected, even though Congress renewed extended benefits until the end of the year.

    Next month, an additional 70,000 people will lose benefits earlier than they presumed, bringing the number of people cut off prematurely this year to close to half a million, according to the National Employment Law Project. That estimate does not include people who simply exhausted the weeks of benefits they were entitled to.

    ———————————————

    The man who attacked a homeless individual in Miami on Sunday and cannibalized his face has now been identified as 31-year old Rudy Eugene.

    Eugene was found nude and attacking another man on a causeway; a bystander flagged down police, who were amazed and sickened when they discovered Eugene eating parts of the victim’s face.

    ——————————

    Big government is watching you.

    Homeland Security reveals hundreds of words that could put you on their online watch list

    Some are obvious, such as Al Qaeda, terrorism and domestic nuclear detection, while others are potentially a bit more innocent such as Mexico, social media and burst.

    PaulG – I don’t know Hillbilly,,I might be out of Faith’s league,,she must have studied at the Boris school of setting a trap,,very foxy young lady indeed…

    —————————–

    I learned not to get her to riled up. We don’t agree on much, but she usually has her facts ready to back up what she says. She also doesn’t get into the name calling & acting like a 5 year old. When i have time to research whatever it is she wants to discuss I’ll go into the bear’s den & do battle.

    C’ya

    P.S. Don’t tell her i said anything nice about her. I’m still mad at her.

    “In all the debt to GDP talk,,got me thinking where California stood,,was surprised to find Cali’s ratio was better than Texas,,less the federal debt…When you look at the debt to the enormous size of Cali’s economy,,there’s little chance your state is the next Greece…”

    Indeed, California’s problems are quite solvable… or rather, they should be. It’s my understanding that their insane Proposition system is one of the biggest roadblocks, and that it ties the hands of the legislature and the executive branch. Basically, it results in exactly what you might expect – The people vote for services they want, then also vote to limit the ability of the state to actually raise the funds to pay for those services; It’s the ultimate argument for why representative democracy is superior to true democracy.

  • Jeff

    @tennable

    READ READ READ READ READ READ.

    Can’t say anything more than that.

    No spinning, just research and taking Bill O words right out of his mouth until he got caught.

  • Jeff

    @paulg

    Already made that assertion re:Hillary, you are late or just can’t read but either way your point is irrelevant and nit picky.
