“In God we trust.” The motto of our currency. This bond with our Creator is essential and indespensible . This is the God of Abraham, Moses and the house of David; Jesus Christ.

Obama is spewing coprophagous speeches to the Democrat and moderate masses, who are eating it up with ladels.

It would be felicitous for our country were most liberals to become caphrophagus and perish in their filth.

Good Morning!

As one who always seeks a "higher level" of discourse, I often refer to someone as having a "coprophagous smile".

The coprophagous CEO's of Fannie and Freddie were busy lining their pockets with their predatory commissions on bad loans while leaving the taxpayers dining on the bills.

Not at all.

Guinea Pig

Most grass-eating mammals are quite large and have a long digestive tract; while guinea pigs have much longer colons than most rodents, they must also supplement their diet by coprophagy, the eating of their own feces.[73] However, they do not consume all their feces indiscriminately, but produce special soft pellets, called cecotropes, which recycle B vitamins, fiber, and bacteria required for proper digestion.[74] The cecotropes (or caecal pellets) are eaten directly from the anus, unless the guinea pig is pregnant or obese.[47] They share this behaviour with rabbits.

okay and so WHO is he and why should we put ANY stock in his opinion other than that his last name is also mccain? i read what it said at the bottom. plenty people disagree with him and have very different opinions of the internals of the polls etc. ANYONE stating this is over and irretrievably lost is attempting to prophesy and talking directly from their anus.

When a Republican pulls out of Michigan to focus on Indiana, when North Carolina is "too close to call", I think it starts getting safe to say that we are screwed.

The only question now is will the DRats get to 60 in the Senate.

McCain is outperforming GWB in my little corner of the world but the Dow was down like 1000 points last week so...that could change things.
