Practice makes perfect.....post on....
To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.
No pushing at the door please!
I’m a little bit later than usual today, having stayed up to all hours watching the Yankees’ extra-inning victory.
If anyone wants on (or off) the PING LIST, please let me know.
You are opening all kinds of replies based on the prevarications of “Dear Leader” (Obama). For instance, how many prevarications will we hear tonight from Obama and his supporters in the media? I could go on and on, but you understand my meaning, I’m sure.
I was not early enough to prevericate, so I’ll just vericate instead
You're the first one here, and that's no prevarication.
Now you can postvaricate.
Here's some more prevarication from our side in return for the favor......
I'm sure the MSM didn't see either of these things coming and maybe we can call this our October surprise for the media.....it sure takes them off point when they're trying so hard to stiffle the discovery of the true facts of these articles.
Great links. Obama is a clean and articulate Black man who doesn't speak in the dialect (unless he wants to.) So which is real and which is the put on--the "Citizen of the World" voice that reads the teleprompter, or the voice of Kingfish from the old "Amos 'n Andy show?"
When following the news on Florida make sure you read the comments section to understand whats really going on.
The Ohio news is on the heavily Democratic Cuyahoga County Cleveland area. For those of you who don't know, this is the county who's numbers need to be overcome to win Ohio....which has been done many times in recent years.
“Prevaricating Packages of Poop” is a lovely way to describe democrats.
I used to say “LYING SACKS OF #$%^”, but then I attended Charm School.
Does it really matter?....he's still the
that's the only thing that's been constant from the beginning......
The registration and absentee ballot info that is coming in flies in the face of the mainstream media meme that the race is in the bag for their hero. But one thing really scares me, and that’s the betting on Intrade. People who are putting up actual dollars have bid Obama up to 75. (For those of you unfamiliar with Intrade, if your prediction comes true, you win 100. If it doesn’t, you get zero. So, betting on Obama, you pay 75 to receive 100, a gain of 25. On a $75 bet, that’s 33% profit. A bet on Romney trades at about 25. If he wins, you would, of course, receive 100, a gain of 75, or a 300% profit.)
My thoughts on Intrade, which has had a good record as a predictor, is that the people who are betting are subject to the same misinformation and disinformation as the rest of us, and are wagering based upon it. Or, pardon my tinfoil hat, George Soros and his ilk are bidding up Obama’s prospects in order to destroy our incentive.
The other possibility—that the bettors are correct—is too horrible to contemplate.
What’s that, baseball? We got a record setting team around here. Never have so many combined for so long to do so little.
Here in the boonies, we have trash talked Obama since the ObamaCare debate started. Believe me, dems join in with the rest of us. Folks were in shock and mourning about their country. I don’t think they need any more incentive to vote him out. It will depend on the useful idiots, who are not motivated to carry signs, hand out literature or write new songs this time around. The kind of folks who have the resolve to show up and vote him out are not the type to invest in Intrade, or to even know what it is. They have no money to waste after bill paying.
It’s what I am telling myself in my pep talk.
Charming. And I love your tagline.
The original was a true masterpiece.
Nice poetry. Does Obama give a “dam” about the debate, or will he rely on lies and assistance from the media?
