    OK, I’m going to share how at times I get some stories some of you won’t see for a day. In addition to my little buzz feed I have with reporter discussions and such, you can view any states info on all TV stations, all newspapers @ http://www.50states.com/

    Click on a state and find “NewsPapers” Or “Media” for a list of that states TV stations.

    You will be amazed how much info at the local level differs from the national ones.

    For the election, you can click on any swing state’s media & print media and see what they say about it.

    Fox News:

    A classified Document obtained by Fox shows that President Obama was personally briefed the day before on an attack threat to the embassy and all threats for the next day 911.
    If the committee has access to these “classified” documents, November 15th is going to be explosive no matter who wins.

    Hello CBS? Hello ABC? Your being out done guys. Shown up, embarrassed, left behind, over run.

    New Obamacare Tax Form Mandates Americans Report Personal Health ID Info to IRS

    Here’s why the IRS will require Americans to disclose their personal health ID information starting in 2014

    When Obamacare’s individual mandate takes effect in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form. The new form will require disclosure of a taxpayer’s personal identifying health information in order to determine compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.

    As confirmed by IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.

    So why will the Obama IRS require your personal identifying health information?

    Simply put, there is no way for the IRS to enforce Obamacare’s individual mandate without such an invasive reporting scheme. Every January, health insurance companies across America will send out tax documents to each insured individual. This tax document—a copy of which will be furnished to the IRS—must contain sufficient information for taxpayers to prove that they purchased qualifying health insurance under Obamacare.

    UH OH!!

    IOWA: R 49% O 48%…

    OHIO: R 49% O 46%…

  • tony

    Rasmussen, Iowa:R49 O48.yip yip yippee.

    Its not that their arent people on the right such as Todd Akin and others who shoot themselves in the foot continually or even Mitt Romney when he doesnt speak with clarity when addressing all economic classes,but Obama has not impressed me with anything he has ever said especially off teleprom.
    The first time I took the time to listen to one of his speeches was after he was elected to senate in 2004;I had heard he was highly intellectual–so I waited for his words of wisdom after his victory…and what did I get a guy pacing back and forth saying “yes we can” multiple times.
    Off the telep. and unrehearsed the intellectual term attributed to Obama has lessened greatly the past 4 years.

    Hang in there everyone, only 5 short days to go.

    The latest Politico battleground poll, released earlier this week, shows Romney with a massive 19-point lead over Obama among suburban voters. Surprisingly, it’s actually one point higher than his lead among rural voters. Obama leads among urban voters by 29 points. In 2008, Obama won the suburban vote by 2 points. The 21-point swing away from him makes his reelection very difficult.

    The latest Politico battleground poll,

    Does anybody with half a brain think that Obama would end up on Monday in Iowa if he thought he would win it hands down!! I dont care if he started there or not, he would not waste the last day if the state didnt matter. Not to mention he is getting there through Wisc then Ohio!
    Trust me! The guys in Chicago are poopin their pants!!!

    @usn LOL


    You are right good sir. Remember what I said Monday, this weekend, watch the anchors and their mood, if it seems like they are starting the blame game? Game Over for whomever side does it. Listen to the message coming from the campaigns themselves, and read between the words, trust me if you ignore the barbs and hear what they are saying, you will know who’s WINNING!!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    New York just got a message they didn’t want to hear

    *Gas Shortages May Not End for Another Week…

  • usnretiredx2

  • usnretiredx2

    Just wonder why there is a shortage since we are at the highest production ever. :twisted:

    What to venture a guess Mark’s or Sam?

  • Matthew

    “Does anybody with half a brain think that Obama would end up on Monday in Iowa if he thought he would win it hands down!! ”

    Why would he think he’s going to win Iowa hands down? You’re talking about swing states like they’re California; both campaigns have dumped a ton of money and time on Iowa. A battleground state is, by definition, ‘in play.’ Obama has maintained an aggregate polling lead in Iowa and Wisconsin making him the statistical favorite to win, which is not at all the same thing as winning hands down. Most of the swing states are in 2 – 3 point margins, so Obama has a choice: Try to play offense in Florida and North Carolina, or try to shore up the Midwest to ensure that Romney doesn’t have a realistic path to 270.

    Just wonder why there is a shortage since we are at the highest production ever

    Well since you brought it up :-)

    Heard a radio interview from a Na yaorker, he asked about the gas shortage and why they cant get gas in, the guy was in a line about 3 hours long, the reporter told him, they can’t just ship in gas from somewhere else because of the regulation standards for New York, How do you feel about that?

    The guy said in a bronx voice, hell wit dat, I’m changin my vote, Romney is my main man now :P

    @Coffee Steve
    The blends are but a tip of the ice burg

    Here is a clip

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — While gas prices soar to record levels, many U.S. refineries that make and sell gasoline are going broke.

    Nearly 50% of the refining capacity on the East Coast has either shut down or may shut down within the next few months.

    If gas shortages develop due to the closed refineries, East Coast drivers could face higher prices than they otherwise would later this year
